What Meg’s Watching Tonight (Monday)

I had family in town this weekend, so I never got around to posting yesterday about last night’s new shows, but all this week, I’ll be letting you know which new and returning shows I’m planning to watch so you’ll know which ones to tune into or avoid yourselves, depending on how alike you think our tastes are!  Last night, I recorded the premieres of Cold Case, Shark, and PBS’s The War.  Tonight, I’ll be watching (or at least recording for later!) the following:

8pm on NBC: Chuck — this show about a geek who opens an email and suddenly gets a ton of super-duper secret government information downloaded directly into his brain sounds a lot like 2003’s Jake 2.0 to me, but let’s hope it’s got more stamina.  At the very least, it’ll need to provide a sufficient explanation for why a tech geek would’ve opened an email without recognizing the sender, though, because we’re usually way too smart for stuff like that.  Nevertheless, it sounds like it could be fun, and I’m all for shows about nerds, so bring it on.

9pm on NBC: Heroes — Saved the cheerleader, saved the world — can’t wait to see how they manage to top that this season!

9pm on FOX: K-Villethe first episode had promise; we’ll see if the second episode has plot.

10pm on NBC: Journeyman — this show essentially sounds exactly like Quantum Leap, but hey, I loved Quantum Leap, so count me in!  It’s about a newpaper reporter who suddenly finds himself moving forward and back through time, solving other people’s problems while having to deal with the fact all the people in the “present day” think he’s losing his mind. 

If you watch any of these tonight, feel free to post your opinions and thoughts in comments.  I’ll be letting you know what I thought of them later this week myself, so stay tuned!

    I loved yesterday’s How I met your Mother. It was HI-LEAREUS

    Hero’s met all my expectations. I wanted Claire to so prove to those snotty cheerleaders that she could kick their butts.

    I was underwhelmed. I was looking forward to Chuck because of Adam Baldwin but it may not be enough to keep me watching. The show was well made but just not appealing to me. The “Buy More” type of jokes get stale quick.

    Journeyman – I loved Kevin McKidd in “Rome” – gosh, I love Rome and eagerly await season 2 on dvd. But Journeyman needs more spark, it just kind of laid there. I’ll give it a few more tries but I expect it to be off the air soon.

    Heroes – I guess they wanted to just introduce us to everyone again – rather dull. Hopefully, the roller coaster ride will start again soon – it’s the reason I watch this show. Last year, Jack Coleman really impressed me with his acting – I don’t remember him being that good an actor on Dynasty!

    I enjoyed Journeyman, but I did find the plot kind of confusing — he essentially had to rescue this woman that wouldn’t have needed rescuing had he not meddled in the past to begin with, and that didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. But I like the premise, and I loved it when his dead girlfriend showed up as a time leaper too — that was unexpecting and intriguing to me. I’ll definitely be sticking with this one to see if it improves down the line!

    The girlfriend also “leaping” was interesting and gives me hope for the show. It’s going to be a tricky balance keeping both the stories in the past and the present interesting since the episode will have to be divided between both.

  5. Catherine Says:

    It was my understanding that his job was not to rescue the wife, but the son. Because later the son saved a bunch of people on a bus or something. So it was necessary for him to meddle and save the guy from committing suicide initially, so he could father the son later. But I always find time traveling confusing!
    I tuned in for one of my boyfriends – Reed Diamond – and was pleasantly surprised to find I really enjoyed the show.
