I've seen them all.

As I said on the other thread, Elementary reminds me of Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Last Resort's premiere was a ripoff of the movie Crimson Tide, but as a series, I think it's got potential.

I have the highest hopes for Vegas.

I've only watched Revolution. Not a masterpiece, but entertaining enough.

Recorded Last Resort and Vegas, haven't watched them yet.

Elementary just didn't appeal to me.

Watched Last Resort and Elementary, enjoyed both. Last Resort certainly had a lot going on, whether they can pull it all together and keep it coherent and reasonably believable remains to be seen. Andre Braugher, as always, is excellent.

Elementary had a good mystery, good chemistry between the stars, and also very well acted, especially Miller as Holmes.

Will stick with these two for now. Haven't gotten to Vegas yet. Not sure if I'll even watch the next ep of Revolution.

Revolution - not all that impressed - giving it some rope
Go On - funny enough
The Neighbors - if it doesn't get a lot better soon, gone
Last Resort - more good than bad, but didn't care for some stuff particularly the local jefe
Ben and Kate - we lasted about 5 minutes
Elementary - still on the DVR to be watched

I'll give Revolution another episode to see where it goes. Not crazy about the female lead, but Esposito and "Uncle Miles" are actors I like.


I loved Last Resort. Very BSG-ish, interesting premise, and the show makers seem ambitious and experienced. The actors are a draw for me and there's an AU flavor I like. I like being dropped into the action and figuring out what's what as the show goes on.

Didn't even make it through the first episode of Revolution, it couldn't hold my attention.

Elementary was decently entertaining. Nice camera work and music.

Blue Bloods and SVU have resumed being enjoyable, and we're eagerly awaiting The Good Wife. Major Crimes is "under review" so far.

They can keep the other "new" shows.

The New Normal.

Just figured out last night (DVR) that one of the leads was on Broadway in Book of Mormon.

The people who should watch it won't, but it's still good.

If they are CBS it is a coincidence. We watch very few "hit shows" because they are mostly crap.

Yes, we have a wonderful device called a DVR, too, and we have DirecTV so we can watch whatever we want, whenever we want.

I also enjoy some of the MSNBC shows and the NBC evening news, to name a few.

I thought it was incredibly preposterous, but it was really entertaining. I'm certainly gonna see how it goes. Though I think it has more "mini-series" potential, so I'm not sure how it will go long-term.

Though, poor Karofsky (from Glee) who only got about 1 minute of screen-time.

The New Normal.

I really liked the first episode, and I've liked the other episodes, but it gets a little preachy (even for me, who generally agrees with what they're preaching). It's like watching episodes of "Maude" -- except with less masculine lead characters. :)

(I will give them credit for at least trying to present both sides during the dinner party, even though the person giving the pro-GOP side has been the "villain" of the show so far).

With the two new NBC comedies I was interested in (The New Normal and Go On), I thought I'd kind of like Go On and really like The New Normal, but it turns out to be the reverse. Go On can make me laugh out loud (the Rachel Maddow jokes last week, for example), while The New Normal just makes me chuckle.

We've seen:

Elementary - okay, but not as good as the one on PBS

Vegas - I liked it, but Dennis Quaid has got to loosen up a bit. He kept looking like he was striking a pose before every tag line.

Animal Practice - DH loves it. Not because of the writing, directing or acting. He freakin' loves Dr. Rizzo!

Go On - I like Matthew Perry and so far am enjoying the show.

Men with Kids (or something like that)- I really liked last week's episode.

That's pretty much all the new stuff we watched. The rest was DVR and Netflix.

This.
Sort of reminds me of David Caruso on CSI: Miami.

Instead of cocking his head and taking off his sunglasses, Quaid hunches his shoulders, juts out his chin and glares. Got old quickly.

Yes! Hopefully, he'll not turn that into some sort of quirk.

But how far can 17 missiles protect them? Not that the sub is in a fixed location, it should be easy to shoot down any fired missiles before they can hit any intended target.

Just do one coordinated attack and knock all of them out of the sky as they get fired.

They should do it like they did in The Outlaw Josey Wales, where another character actually narrates/choreographs the action:

"Now, spit!"

I've been hospitalized the last month or so, without an available TV schedule, so have been hit or miss on seeing new shows. But so far:

Elementary -- I like it, buy preferred the recent BBC reboot.
Revolution -- Not a good show, but with some popcorn, Junior Mints or Peanut M&M's, and a large soda to give me a sugar high while watching it, I can enjoy all the action without caring about the plot.
Last Resort -- Loving it so far.
Ben and Kate -- Huh? Turned channel BEFORE first commercial break, which is rare. I usually will give a new show until AT LEAST the first commercial break.
Go on -- I just like Matthew Perry. Love the Google Maps show. :)
Major Crimes -- No big deal.

Still waiting for:

Arrow
Beauty and the Beast

Decided not to give a chance:

Vegas -- Just not interested in another show on Las Vegas.
Mind Project -- Never cared for Mindy on The Office.

17 missiles might be enough for the show's run, if it doesn't get renewed...

Hopefully there'll be some explanation about political reasons or whatever that TPTB can't pick off their nukes.

Maybe the new players introduced in Ep 2 will play that up some.

I liked the 3rd ep of "Revolution" quite a bit more than the first two. Interesting relationships getting introduced and I like the flashbacks.

Maybe not a "must see" but it's not a "can't watch" for me, either. I'm good with giving it more watches.

In ep2 Tech Babe said something about her father not being allowed to work on Star Wars/SDI 20 years ago.

As it is, I don't know of any reason to believe individual ICBM missiles can be knocked out without causing damage somewhere.

Given the success rate of the tests that we know of (I think 50% might be generous), I'm not certain they want to take that chance.

The only new show I've checked out so far is Ben and Kate, I heard a good review, but wasn't really that impressive, IMO.
