The Fall TV Season
There are three new shows on television this Fall that I am excited about watching:
1. Heroes: In what seems like a take-off on "The X-Men", a handful of individuals around the world suddenly manifest superhero-like powers. The question of course is: whatever will they do with them? Plus, the very idea of a high school cheerleader who becomes indestructible is pure genius.
2. Jericho: A small Kansas town is cut off from the rest of the world when America is attacked with nuclear weapons. Are they the only survivors left, we are meant to wonder? It is a blatant attempt to do Lost in small town America, but should be interesting nonetheless.
3. Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip: I've always been a fan of "Saturday Night Live" and this attempt to do a series showing what takes place behind the scenes of a show like that sounds fun. Plus, it comes from the mind of Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, Sports Night) so it should be thoughtful as well as entertaining.
