Fall Shows NOT to Miss (Fall 2006)

Written By: Gary on August 3, 2006 2 Comments
Heroes – Normal people start to gain extra abilities all over the world.
The 4400 meets the X-Files (maybe?). If you’ve ever read a super-hero comic or wanted to be different then this show is for you. We’ve got a lot of Lost-like coincidental meeting in this one. A great concept. We’ll see how it lasts. (What the heck is the girl in the mirror’s power?)
Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip – The director flips out on the air. They need new people in charge.
Sports Night meets Saturday Night Live (with a little bit of Network thrown in). A great cast in this one, a lot of your favorites from Aaron Sorkin shows.
Jerico – A little town in the southwest named Jerico. A mushroom cloud in the distance.
The Day After meets Invasion. This one might get a little old. But the first episode was great. Be sure to listen to the answering machine; the first time and the last time gives the most chills. The post disaster stuff is already reminding me of the city in Invasion being cut off from civilization.
The Nine – A bank robbery. Nine strangers. It’s 52 two hours later.
They’ve bonded, they’ve lost one and they still aren’t sure what happened. A lot of familiar faces in this one. Lots of Lost-type flashbacks and they’re trying to piece it all together. Intense.
Secrets of a Small Town – A murder in a small town. A reporter returns home after 5 years. A lot of other stuff/secrets I’m still clueless about.
Twin Peaks meets (I’m not sure what yet). A cast of thousands. Lots of people with secrets. This one is definitely worth watching the first few ’cause if you miss them I don’t know if you can catch up later.
Traveler – Two friends get blamed for a museum bombing. Their friend Will Traveler is missing. A coincidence?
9/11 meets the One Armed Man. This might get old as they track down clues to clear their name. (There has got to be a GPS tracker in the watch).

    All of those are on my list except “The Nine” and “Traveler”. Have you seen these already??

    Seriously, guys. Why don’t we live closer together? Because I would so be hanging out with you to watch these shows. I just saw several commercials for “The Nine” last night and you captured my thoughts exactly. Also, I really miss “Sports Night” – I loved that show. Of course, it was cancelled, but it had the illuminating Felicity Huffman.
