#415. More from TV Season 2011-2012

I knew I was forgetting some TV shows yesterday, and so here's more!

I watched the first episode of Grimm, and probably could have gotten past the bad CGI effects for the monster face-morphing had the lead actor actually been Brandon Routh.  I also watched the early episodes of Once Upon a Time (and even gushed about it here), but lost track of it, a little too easily (will probably give it another try next fall, though).

Two other casualties of my particular circumstances this season were Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice, shows I used to watch thanks to a girl I used to like.  It seems I didn't really miss much with Grey's this season.  They finally got rid of the superfluous sister in the season finale, but otherwise spun a lot of wheels.  Private Practice has been the better show, consistently, more a few seasons now, and once I discovered that it had been moved to Tuesdays, got to see why again.  It's a cast filled with actors who know what they're doing (my favorites will always be Paul Adelstein and KaDee Strickland, though Kate Walsh and Taye Diggs, the bigger stars, are worthy competitors).  It was funny to see another would-be lead actor, Benjamin Bratt, wash up in the offices.

I didn't watch a single episode of The Office this season, or Parks and Recreation, and I don't think I missed anything.  Same with 30 Rock.  One show I haven't seen but increasingly wish I have is Vampire Diaries.

I also didn't catch any Simpsons, much less Family Guy, American Dad, or Cleveland Show.  I think I may also be interesting in seeing me some Bob's Burgers at some point, but that hasn't happened, either.

Mike and Molly remaining a baffling misuse of Melissa McCarthy.  I watched a fraction of Rules of Engagement, even though I enjoy it.  I caught the early episodes of the new Two and a Half Men, but stopped.

And, anyway, I haven't really been able to obsessively watch everything I really want to watch, so any look back will be necessarily be incomplete.

Bottom line, best shows of the season:

1. Fringe
2. How I Me Your Mother
3. Survivor
4. The Big Bang Theory
5. Person of Interest
6. The Walking Dead
7. Community
8. Criminal Minds
9. Awake
10. New Girl

Fringe is an awesome show. What are William Bells intentions? I've given you a Versatile Blogger Award! Tony. http://startrekspace.blogspot.com/

Belly's intention were to create a perfect new world. He's what Walter would have become if he hadn't been humbled. Now Walter is just a genius, instead of a mad genius. You know he's not mad because he was released from the mental institution...Anyway, thanks for the award!

I love Persona of Interest and New Girl, but I was a little disappointed with HIMYM and Big Bang this season. But that happens when you've been on the air for that long. I'm just not thinking on getting into Fringe though - nice to hear that's a good one.

Grimm was dumb (so disappointing), but Once Upon a Time was okay in my opinion. Not the best show I've ever seen, and I doubt it'll last, but I liked season 1.
