Random TV Watch Update…

There are several things I love doing and watching TV is definitely at the top of the list. I have not found an addiction/passion to rival what I felt for Smallville (and Clois in particular) but I’ve been having a blast watching some shows this year that a carry-over from last year. Some new shows are decent but nothing to rave about. What are you guys watching and do you disagree/agree with my thoughts below? What's good that I don't have on my list?

Epic Long Post Under Cut....  )

So, I read recently that the CW just ordered a pilot for a Green Arrow show. (HITFIX LINK.) Sadly enough, it looks like poor Justin Hartley is going to have absolutely nothing to do with the project. (I say "poor" Justin Hartley because the "Aquaman" show didn't get picked up - where he was the lead - and he played third/fourth fiddle in SV for years and - now - his character is going to get his own show, but some other guy is going to play the lead.)

So, here's my question - are you going to watch? Are you excited by the prospect? And did you also let out an evil cackle and say to yourself, "Clearly, the CW is missing the numbers that "Smallville" used to generate for them. Those bastards." )

Personally, I think it would have been better for them to do a show on the Flash. The Green Arrow seems too poised for angst and tragedy. And I also can't help but feel that this is DC Comics' way of putting on a Batman show without greenlighting Batman.

Also, I think I'm having difficulty imagining someone other than Hartley playing the GA. And here's - of course - the shipping question. Do you guys think they'd have the Black Canary on the show from the beginning? I guess the "star crossed" lovers thing works a hell of a lot better in the GA/BC relationship than it ever did with Clark/Lana. But honestly? It kind of seems like a drag when you know that Ollie cheats on Dinah and that they just split up in the comics.

What do you think? Will this be another "Smallville" or will it be "Birds of Prey"?

The other bit of Pilot news that caught my eye was the two orders of "Beauty and the Beast". (EW LINK.)

Oh, it's so much fun when my love for two fandoms collide... (credit to littlepaperstars)....

Jade created a brand new forum for fans of "Once Upon a Time"... a message board for fans to really get together and have lots of fun conversations about the show. 

It can be found HERE

Come join in on the fun... We'll be talking about the 4th episode tomorrow as it airs.

I really, really, really enjoyed the the first episode. I had a feeling, going into it, that I'd enjoy it because:

(1) it's about fairy-tales
(2) it's a twist on fairytales and
(3) it features a lot of strong women characters.

I'm interested in seeing where this is going. I wasn't a Morrison fan when she was in "House", but I really liked her here. I thought Goodwin was similar to her "Big Love" character, but I don't have a problem with that.

The only other random thoughts I had...

* Are we ever going ot get a hot guy on TV that is either as hot or hotter than Tom Welling? Seriously. Not even ONE GUY on this show made me drool

* How long can they sustain this premise? Will it get very old, very fast? I mean, at some point, we need the climax where Emma tries to kick the evil queen's ass. They cannot stall that until Season Five or something.

* Very much like "Lost" with the flashbacks and everything. But... again... I kind of wish Prince Charming didn't look like such a pansy.
It would make me more invested in the flasbacks

* I watched this with my husband... forced him to take a break from football to watch something with me, and he actually really enjoyed. Suprisingly. Also, if it continues to be this "clean" then I think I can let my 10 year old watch it, too. We may have found some family viewing!

* The evil queen? I'm gonna need more than just her being mean. She's a little over the top.

Did you guys watch? What did you think? Am I the only one who thought of the miniseries "The 10th Kingdom" when I was watching? And have you guys read a comic book series called "Fables" that's printed by DC Comics? Apprently, they're awesome.
