My Tuesdays are slim pickins as far a quality television is concerned.
We had episode 1.2 of Ringer – She’s Ruining Everything. The show’s pilot episode last week earned it strike one. And this week, unfortunately, earned it strike too. While last week’s episode was just silly, this week’s episode managed to improve to dull, but terribly dull. My heart isn’t even in this anymore and I’m fairly sure next week will result in the final episode I watch. Better luck next time, SMG. I might tune in to see Jason Dohring, maybe.
Glee returned and I had high hopes after a disappointing third season. But honestly, nothing really won me over in the premiere. I do like Quinn as a bad girl and that Blaine has joined New Directions. Rachel and Kurt have some of the best scenes, but I just feel like it’s too little, too late. We’ll see how I feel once Idina returns next week.
I am happy to announce that I adored the New Girl premiere. I know a ton of people are annoyed by Zooey Deschanel, but her quirkiness I find endearing. Honestly, I don’t really separate the actress from her character, Jess. The role just has a sense of sincerity that is lacking on television, especially comedic television. Her roommates (the premise has her character moving in with three guys) are fantastic in their own right – I see you there, Deputy Leo! I haven’t forgotten our Veronica Mars love! The Douchebag jar is genius and the reverse mormonism is beyond genius. When the boys show up at the restaurant to save her from being stood up my heart might have melted just a little! Kudos, new show! I see love in our future.
