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?

I'm not sure about The Mindy Project. Seems like she was just talking shit about her own weight the whole time.

I'm guessing that there's 4 or 5 sitcom writers in the entire country that sit around and place stupid 1 liners in a massive bowl.

The scripts are then put together using trained marmots that reach in and place the stupid one liners in random order.

Last night I watched Partners with the wife (she sucks at watching TV) and I'm pretty sure that they're using untrained marmots.

She also watches Two Broke Girls, which was the first show that turned me on to the marmot conspiracy.

I heard it was Manatees and Beach Balls.

IOW - South Park did it.

BTW - Partners and 2BG are the bottom of the sitcom barrel. The latter is only popular for epic boobies on one of the stars. The former is gonna be gone quick.

I'll probably give Elementary a chance. A Sherlock Holmes variation.

Elementary and Last Resort are the main ones I'm looking forward to. It's kind of a lame set of shows this season.

Elementary was a disappointment. SHerlock on the BBC is so much better. CBS is obviously trying to rip it off....and Lucy Liu as Watson did not do anything for me either. Will probably watch a couple of more to see if it gets any better....but not sure how long I will stick with it.

Vegas was pretty good. The two lead males did well in their roles and I really enjoyed seeing Trinity with a mound of thick ass in a skirt.

I haven't seen the BBC version, but I really liked the CBS knock-off. I love Lucy Liu.

Sherlock is on Netflix Instant. I'm going to check it out later this fall.

You are in for a treat. Sherlock is some of the best Sherlock Holmes material ever filmed. Fantastic series.

Am I right in seeing that Season 1 of Sherlock contains a grand total of 3 episodes, or does Netflix just not carry them all?

You are correct. Each of the two seasons is only 3 episodes, but each episode is about 90 minutes long.
