Some reviews of this fall’s television offerings

Just a few short notes on the new season and some old favorites.

Harry’s Law is one of the best written shows now in its second season. Kathy Bates stars and she has turned around her career very late in life. You can see why this might be appealing to me. Bates is up against a beautiful young unscrupulous prosecutor. Should be a fine season.

X Factor. The good news is that the contestants are a lot better than American Idol. How can that be? It is a puzzle. The auditions included the exploitation of a developmentally disabled man. Classy, guys. Real cool. Yes, you were very nice when you were done with the poor man but it still leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

Survivor. Never trust the nephew of Russell Hance. He is a snake. Period. Marie and I have watched every episode, and I am sure we will continue. The human interactions are too good.

House goes to prison. My goodness. This is one of the best shows on television.

Pan Am. Has anybody seen it?

Playboy? Haven’t seen it either. Any takers?

Two Broke Girls? Don’t watch sitcoms.

The Closer just finished its run. One of the best shows on TV.

CSI.Ted Danson has created an interesting persona and it must be that I am hopelessly addicted. Good show.

Person of Interest. Have not watched, but every Lost fan must tune in. Right? Yeah, Lost. That was the show that promised me that they were not in Purgatory. Nice work, guys.

Unforgettable. Good script, good concept.

Charley’s Angels? A remake? Why bother?

A Gifted Man. Somehow, I think this one won’t last too long. His ex-wife comes back as a ghost. (WHEW! That’s a thought! The room is spinning!)

    Enjoy watching the shows like Pan Am and Playboy Club set in the 60’s to see what adult beverages cast members are drinking in the bar & restaurant scenes. Noticed a crock bottle of Lancers Rose on one table, that was a hot item back in the day, before Sutter Home White Zinfandel came on the scene.
