TV Tuesday: Premiere time!

Oh, how I love the end of September. Some might be enjoying the cooler, sunny weather and doing fall-type outdoorsy activities, I am filling up the DVR with the season's newest shows. Jill and I had our lists of what we were excited about, and here is my take on it all.
  • New Girl- This ended up being my favorite show of the week. I get the writers' sense of humor and love Zooey Deschanel. The "D-bag" jar, the lesson on how to talk to girls, and Coach's costume for the party were the highlights, but really I laughed out loud way more than that. I was furious that my DVR cut off the last line...what did he say?? Verdict: new fave!
  • Modern Family- Ahh! I was freaked out by the "new Lily". The scenery in their trip to the mountains was so pretty that I got over new Lily quickly. I loved that it was an hour long (wish it always was), laughed SO hard at Cam's "Let's hear it for the boy!" understated performance, and was so happy to see Dylan cut loose. He made me cringe. Speaking of cringing, how about Alex's little mobster boyfriend? Ugh. As usual, Jay and Cam had my favorite lines. I love the Lily/Cam chemistry and the family album was hysterical. It wasn't an amazing episode by any stretch but was much better than the rest of the week. Verdict: Excited for the season!
  • The Office- What? Andy's in charge? And Pam AND Angela are pregnant?! I missed the first 4 minutes of it and walked into a show I almost didn't recognize. I have said many times that the show should have ended when Michael left, and my mind did not change. I used to laugh out loud and tonight I briefly smiled a few times with Pam's pregnant crying. Verdict: I'll DVR it and bust it out when nothing else is on
  • Whitney- Instantly, I was turned off by the laugh track. Wait, then it says "Whitney is taped in front of a live studio audience". So weird. The lines are so cheesy and I think I have been over sitcoms for a while. I lasted 6 minutes. More room on the DVR! Verdict: No thanks!
  • Grey's Anatomy- Ahh, my old friends at Seattle Grace Hospital. The last time I saw them, I had a 4 week old!  I enjoyed having a 2 hour premiere I could fast forward through on Sunday morning, and when it ended I wanted more!  I was also in tears when it ended, so you know it was an emotional one.  My favorite character of the episode? Owen. I don't want to ruin it for you, but you'll see why. Verdict: won't miss it.
How about you?  Your favorites of the week?

    New Girl--fave parts (among many):

    "Then, if you're really lucky, you might find a girl who will motorboat you back."

    "Also, I like to sing to myself...a lot...a lot."

    Okay and the last line, the guy I don't like says something to the effect of "just to let you know, no matter what, I would still do you." and then she says, "oh that's so sweet....JAR."

    And Coach is also on another one of my favorite shows, Happy Endings, so I'm not sure how that's going to work out.

    So glad you like this one too! I LOVE IT!

    I looooved the Grey's premiere! I'm really proud of the show for not taking the predictable road. When they said Christina hadn't done it, I was sure they'd play out this whole change of heart storyline for her and I thought it was really ballsy to go the route they did.

    As usual, I'm completely hooked and I can't wait for this season!!

    I agree on the Christina part. It kept me wondering, which usually doesn't happen in TV often! Not that I wanted or didn't want her to make her choice, I just thought I knew what she'd do. I didn't know you were a Grey's fan too!
