Prepping Up For the Fall

I've already previewed Reaper versus Chuck.
This time, I will be blogging about Pushing Daisies and Big Bang Theory.

My thoughts?

Find the time to watch Pushing Daisies.

Big Bang Theory is a DUD.

Pushing Daisies is a fairy tale show spun with a Dead Like Me feel. Ned, our hero, is a guy with a talent for bringing the dead back to life for at least a minute. The moment he makes a dead person lapse over the minute, someone within close proximity would die in place. In return, Ned cannot touch another person he brought back to life unless he wants them dead.

So, imagine his predicament when he saves Chuck, the love of his life, from being worm food?

Yeah, bummer, isn't it?

I can't give away any more details. You have to watch it. If you ever watched Big Fish, you would definitely dig this show.

GRADE: A

Big Bang Theory

Here's IMDB's description: A woman shows two brilliant physicists how little they know about life.

My description? CRAP.

Leonard and Sheldon are physicist roommates who happen to find new neighbor Penny move into the next door. Of course she's someone from Nebraska starting a new life after leaving her cheating boyfriend. Leonard, who's trying to impress Penny, does her a favor by trying to claim back a stupid TV. Of course, said ex is a buff dude. Of course the nerds get pummeled. It was actually a miserable watch. Kaley Cuoco could do better. Same as Johnny Galecki. It doesn't help that the show started with the said nerds trying to donate sperm to get money to enhance their computer connection. The show's opener was supposed to be funny. The opening joke sounded creepy and gross instead. Eck!

GRADE: D-

I still have Bionic Woman and The Sarah Connors Chronicles. Weigh in on those shows coming soon.

The Bionic Woman pilot episode is now on Comcast's On-Demand on NBC's HD programming. It's met my expectations and then some. I'm glad they re-cast the role of the little sister and didn't make her disabled. Jem's hooked now too. He likes the writing on this show better than Heroes.

Torchwood on BBC America has also been on the required viewing list here at home too.
