Mid-Season Round-Up

Mid-season television can be confusing, especially nowadays when it’s becoming ever more common for networks to break seasons of shows in two parts or for them to wait to premiere a show until January or February so as to assure a straight run.

TV’s Best/Worst/Weirdest: Sept 20-26

This was a fun week. A whole slough of premieres and pilots that had me freaking out about how I was going to handle the rest of my life (summers always get me out of whack). Plus, I’m trying to catch up on Bones before I miss much more of Season 5. But, um, I … Continue reading
