Season premiere review: 'Dexter' - 'Are You?'

What did everybody think of the Showtime drama's return?

I posted my review of the new season of "Dexteryesterday. Now it's your turn. Given the unhappiness so many "Dexter" fans had with the last season (if not the last two, or even three of the last four), were you satisfied enough with how the show dealt with the Deb/Dexter cliffhanger to put those bad feelings aside? Or are you always going to feel skeptical about the show from here until the end? Is anyone done with the show now, and/or has anyone been roped back in after giving up, like I was? Have at it.

My Sunday plate's too full to put "Dexter" back into the rotation, but I'll definitely be back to discuss the season after the finale, and possibly once or twice in between if something notable happens.

The Showtime drama benefits from dealing with the consequences of Dexter's actions

I'll be damned. "Dexter" has sucked me back in.

Series premiere review: 'Made in Jersey' - 'Pilot'

What did everybody think of the new CBS drama?

"Made in Jersey" is another new fall show I didn't have write a review of, though Dan and I discussed it for a few minutes on yesterday's podcast, where we agreed that any enjoyment you take out of it will depend almost entirely on your affection for star Janet Montgomery.

For those who tuned in tonight, what did you think? A Jersey love letter or more of the same old stereotypes? Did you buy the English-born Montgomery as a Jersey girl by way of Marissa Tomei in "My Cousin Vinny"? Did you feel the show made good use of Kyle MacLachlan? Did you want to spend more time on the case or back with her family? And will you watch again?

Have at it.

It's time to stop waiting for the other shoe to drop, quality-wise

The early critical narrative about Showtime's "Homeland" was "Okay, this is a great pilot, but how do they make it work as a series?" Then it was, "Okay, it's great so far, but they're going to screw it up in the end, right?" By the end of the season, it was — mostly — "Well, that was a terrific finish, but what do they do for an encore?"

Series premiere review: 'Elementary' - 'Pilot'

What did everybody think of the new CBS mystery?

I posted my review of CBS' "Elementaryyesterday. Now it's your turn. For those who tuned in tonight, what did you think? Was it too easy to compare it to either "Sherlock" or "The Mentalist" (or any other CBS procedural) to enjoy, or were Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu interesting enough to make it work? If you're a Sherlock Holmes fan, did this feel like a fair take on the character? Did you figure out where the story was going before Holmes and Dr. Watson did? And will you watch again?

Have at it.

Series premiere review: 'Last Resort' - 'Captain'

What did everybody think of the new ABC military thriller?

I posted my review of ABC's "Last Resortyesterday. Now it's your turn. What did everybody think of the show? Did the writers make good use of Andre Braugher's gift of gab? Did you think Scott Speedman was up to working opposite him? Did the story flow well, or do you feel like there was too much of a rush to get the sub to the island? Too many characters? Not enough? Once we got to Hawaii, did you start waiting for Smokey to start clicking away? Did you like how they called it "Captain" instead of "Pilot" because of the setting? And will you watch again next week?

Have at it.
