New Shows?

There are only two TV series that I follow.

House MD has 4 episodes remaining.
SVU's on its last legs and will likely be cancelled after this season.

I'm gonna be out in the cold.

So, I'm hoping for a few suggestions for 1-3 dramatic series, on Network Television, that I can follow going forward.

I prefer shows that are both cerebral and deeply emotional.
Can you guys help?

Interesting. Good guy? Bad guy?

The death of Network Television. Reality TV is so cheap to produce it's no wonder those shows fill up Network TV timeslots.

I'm not sure where it's going but it's interesting enough. The pilot episode was incredible. Each episode I've seen since has kept my attention and it's pretty well acted. Definitely fits "cerebral and deeply emotional" so far.
I think I read about that series in this forum.

What I read definitely piqued my interest. This is a new show, no?

A good guy, but he'll uses tactics the police can't kind of thing. Breaking and entering, warrantless searches etc. She's good when she's on screen. Really, the problem with the show is Cavieziel (sp?) He talks in this sort of quiet monotone, and it makes it sort of sleepy.

I'll check it out. Thanks.

I just jumped in on NYC 22 on Sunday nights, about rookie cops on their first assignments. It's pretty good.

Even better is Blue Bloods on Friday nights. It's nearing the end of season 2, so you may have some catching up, but it's really good.

I still watch Criminal Law and Person of Interest as well, which are both tops.

For non-network, catch A Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, but they both require significant amounts of catch-up to fully realize the stories and relationships.

And even then it's a bit of a chore. The first 10 or 11 episodes are a bear to get through. I almost quit the show multiple times. In face, I did stop watching for about 6 months after I watched the first disc of season one. It wasn't until I heard about some of the stuff that happens in season two that I got interested enough to keep watching. I'm glad I did, though. But I'm still behind. I've only watched the first two seasons so far.

But it's a really fun show. I like it a lot now.

Yeah, it just started this year, in March, if I recall correctly.

Really don't like any of the new shows. As tv is not what it is back in the days, where we have three to four networks.

Anyone watch the Kiefer Sutherland show "Touch" on FOX? I've seen a couple of them and thought it was decent. It's from the guy who did "Heroes" I think.

Basically, Kiefer Sutherland's kid is a mute who is "obsessed with numbers and can see past, present and future events through the numbers" (quoted from Wikipedia).

Hard to explain, but basically, the premise is that everyone in the world is linked together somehow. The kid gives his Dad (Kiefer) a set of numbers, which allows the Dad to set certain things in motion (unknowingly) which impact many other people.

For example, the kid will give the Dad a set of numbers that lead the Dad to an address. In front of that address, the Dad will keep someone from getting hit by a car, which then allows a certain chain of events to take place that otherwise wouldn't have. It all plays out over the course of the show.

It's worth checking out if you like that kind of stuff...

I watch them both and like them both a lot. At this point, I would say go with Person of Interest because it's (by far) the surer bet to get a second season. Awake is a really interesting show, though.

I did watch the first couple of episodes of Touch, but it really doesn't do anything for me.

Me either. It was also uber annoying to watch an hour of Sutherland running around constantly yelling "Jake! Jake! Jake! Don't do that! Jake! Jake! Come here! Jake!".
