OK, it’s January now. So what are your most anticipated shows? In order, for me:
24: Yes, it is often cheesy. Yeah the whole Nixon thing of last year was a tad contrived. Yes every season has at least one eye rolling episode or event. (Although nothing tops the cougar from season 2) Yes, it’s only come close to matching the original 13 episodes of season 1 occasionally. But admit it. You’re excited. You want to see Jack escape from the Chinese.
Lost: Yes there were a few disappointing episodes this season. But a lot was told. And we won’t have to worry about weeks off. We’re getting a reported 12 straight episodes (maybe more?) If it weren’t for the strength of the Jack Bauer power hour this would be my number one excitement.
Heroes: A show that just seemed to get stronger each episode. And it seems to be going places a tad faster than Lost did. I hope I can wait the weeks for its return.
Battlestar Galactica: Yes, I’ll admit that the last few episodes disappointed me a bit. But the first four were pretty solid and overall this has been an amazing show. The show switches to Sundays and appears to be pushing the whole Cylon/Human connection. I can’t help but think the upcoming season will be engaging in a little bit more Mormon connection from the original series. (i.e. the whole extra religious element – although I’m sure Moore, being largely ignorant of Mormons, will give it an interesting twist)
So You Think You Can Dance: Whaaa!?!? OK, I admit it. I hated this show at first but was excited when a ton of locals made it on the show. It brought back me trying to learn to dance in college. Now that all the local dancers have been discovered I’m kind of hoping for a huge turnout this show to cheer on. This got me excited enough to want to take ballroom dance lessons again when the baby is a tad older.
