The Good Wife

So I’ve only seen a couple of episodes of “The Good Wife,” but I can see why it’s one of this year’s top-rated new shows!  Really though, how could it fail with Chris Noth and Christine Baranski?  Oh yeah, and Julianna Margulies is pretty good too!   😉

Other new shows I’ve been enjoying:

NCIS: Los Angeles (the formula is pretty fool-proof) for its two main characters – played by Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J.

Hmmmm, maybe that’s actually it for new shows I’ve been enjoying! 

Before I end this post, I just wanted to say that I read an article that said that Glee was going on hiatus from mid-December until APRIL to make way for American Idol.  I find this really, really annoying.  I love watching Glee.  It’s one of the best new shows out there, and one of the best shows on television right now, period.  The fact that American Idol, a show that loses viewers each season, is forcing Glee to go on such a long break is ridiculous, in my opinion!  I sure hope that Glee doesn’t lose its momentum with such a long break!  What do you think, fellow Gleeks?

Okay, I have to admit it, after watching only 3 episodes of Glee, I was totally HOOKED!  I’d seen the pilot episode last spring, but didn’t have time to watch any of the new episodes this fall.  I stumbled upon one last week sometime (I honestly don’t remember the circumstances that led me to watch episode 8; I think I may have been bored and decided to watch it online), and then HAD to watch Wednesday’s episode.  After that, it was official, I just had to watch them all!  So, of course, I downloaded all the episodes that I hadn’t seen, and now, after watching them right after the other, I’m all caught up, and officially IN LOVE with this show! 

I think it’s awesome that there’s a show out there that celebrates the differences between kids in high school!  They do a great job of representing racial diversity, and each episode really hits all the right notes (pun intended).  The storylines are compelling and the characters are well-written.  The standouts for me are really Jane Lynch as Sue Sylvester, and Lea Michele as Rachel.  As I sit here, I cannot wait for Wednesday’s new episode, and may actually re-watch one of the ones I downloaded, just so I can get my “fix!”

Life should be a musical . . .

Anyone who knows me on facebook probably saw my status from the other day about wanting life to be a musical.  Well, today I watched the premiere of a new show that, while isn’t exactly a musical, provides enough singing and dancing to keep me satisfied!  What show am I talking about?  Glee!  I hadn’t realized that it actually premiered a few nights ago, so I ended up downloading it last night and watching it this evening.  I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cast and the writing.  There were a few rough spots, but all in all it was high quality.  The kids they have forming the members of the glee club, particularly Rachel and Finn, are quite talented.  In my opinion, Rachel is stronger in voice than Finn, played by Cory Monteith.  Actually Rachel, played by Lea Michele, reminds me a lot of Idina Menzel, which is definitely a compliment! 

I’ve heard through the grapevine (Perez Hilton) that Fox has made the bold decision to show the pilot episode now in order to hook people, and then air the season next fall with the rest of the new series.  It remains to be seen whether this strategy will pay off in the end, but I for one am intrigued to see what future episodes will bring and will definitely be tuning it to watch!

Did you catch the show?  What did you think?
