Such a magical time of year. The leaves are changing color. The morning air is crisp. My football team is in first place (for now). Baseball is winding down into another storied playoff season. Fall TV returns to the airways.
Now, people who know me, know that I hate the first two things on the list, but get super excited about the other three. I won’t talk much about the Bears or baseball right now though. More on that later. Which show am I most excited to return to the airways. I got a sneak peek with Parks and Recreation coming before the others. Yes, I love that show, but that is not the one I was the most excited to see.
Laura and I watched seven seasons of How I Met Your Mother in less than 4 weeks. The return was, wait for it, well worth it. Funny as always. Ted was same old mopy Ted and Barney was same old Barney and Robin was, eh? I love the show as much as I love its drinking game, but it’s not the one I was waiting for.
New Girl came next and gave us two solid episodes opening night. I am not sure if I like New Girl or Happy Endings better. Both comparable, but I think New Girl is taking the edge. Not just my crush on Zooey, but my man crush on Jake Johnson. He makes me laugh just about anything he says. But alas, this is not the one I was waiting for.
Now, I have been thoroughly pissed at Showtime. Jenji Kohan in particular. The Weeds finale was the biggest piece of shit garbage I have ever seen on television. Those of you pissed at the Soprano’s, Weeds blew that out of the fricken water. There was no reason that it had to be six years in the future. And even if it were, what the hell was with the Doug cult and sci-fi technology. Crap, crap, crap, crap, crap, crap, crap, crap, shit stain.
Well, Showtime made up for it big time. Dexter was the show I was waiting for and holy hell to it pay off. SPOILER ALERT: For those of you who DVR’d it and haven’t watched Deborah finally learn about the dark passenger, I may have just ruined it. That was an intense hour and I said out loud, “Is it next Sunday yet?” Well. Done.
I loved it. I loved every minute of it. The teaser at the end made me want to watch more and more and more. I can’t wait to see where this, the final season, is going. Is Deb going to be on his table? Is Deb going to have to take him out? Does he get so careless that someone else kills him? We know one thing and that is he is not going to jail. That’s just part of Harry’s Code. I say that Deb takes him out. There is my prediction.
Now it’s time to get ready and watch one of my favorite television shows ever. Monday Night Football. BEAR DOWN!
Please to enjoy.
