"The Neighbors" is one of this fall's new shows I didn't have the time (or heart) to review, though Fienberg and I discussed it at length on Monday's podcast. But I'm curious what those of you who tuned in tonight thought. Did the "aliens name themselves after famous athletes" running gag get old, or is "Dick Butkus" just inherently, eternally hilarious? Did you love the way the communication device's name has "poop" in it? Did you prefer the alien characters, the humans, or neither? And will you watch again, especially once it moves to 8:30?
Have at it.
I'm out of the weekly "Sons of Anarchy" reviewing game, and you can read Geoff Berkshire's longer, thoughtful take on last night's episode right here. But I did say I would check in from time to time, and one event in last night's episode made this one of those times. A few very spoiler-y thoughts coming up just as soon as I bring in a specialist from out of town...
I posted my review of CBS' "Vegas" this morning. Now it's your turn. For those who tuned in tonight, what did you think? Were you happy to see Dennis Quaid on the small screen? To have Michael Chiklis in pure villain mode? For those who aren't into the CBS procedural vibe, were there enough ongoing elements introduced to keep you happy as Quaid and his guys solved the case?
I posted my review of "The Mindy Project" yesterday (and I interviewed Mindy Kaling before that). Now it's your turn. How did you feel Kaling both wrote and played her character? Did you feel the supporting players (and guest stars like Bill Hader and Ed Helms) were well-used? Did you laugh? And, most importantly, will you watch again?
Have at it.
"New Girl" has begun its new season with multiple episodes, and I have thoughts on both coming up just as soon as I figure out my sex character is named Sgt. Giddyup Carruthers...
I reviewed FOX's "Ben and Kate" yesterday. Now it's your turn. For those of you who watched tonight (or in one of its many online preview windows over the last few weeks), what did you think? Did you like the sibling chemistry between Nat Faxon and Dakota Johnson? Did you find it funny? Do you also want to draw attention to your mouth? And will you watch again?
Have at it.
A review of last night's "Revolution" coming up just as soon as there's a sale on heroin...
