Re: Rate the NEW SHOWS as you Watch em

It's tough to rate a series as a whole in it's rookie season based off a few episodes. Some shows start off rough or mediocre, but get better as the season progresses and as the writers get more comfortable writing the characters.

I've tried alot so far with more to come:
Hellcats: B
Terriers: B
Nikita: B+
Outlaw: C-
Chase: C+
Hawaii Five-O: A
Undercovers: B-
Top Chef: Just Desserts: B (I know it's a competition, but it's still new)

Re: Rate the NEW SHOWS as you Watch em

I was going to start this thread, or just a recommend a new show thread, myself because there are so many pilots and I don't think I have time for them all.

Nikita: B+
Hawaii 5-0: B-
The Event: incomplete (bailed after 15 minutes)

Re: Rate the NEW SHOWS as you Watch em

Raising Hope
1st episode - put me to sleep
2nd episode - Liked it, maybe I'll try the first one again
3rd episode - funny

Running Wilde
1st episode - huge disapointment
2nd episode - I give up
3rd episode - laughfed once at The Office joke, The Blue Man Group ref seemed a little desperate

Outsourced
1st episode - didn't care for
2nd episode - not bad

Haven't watched any of these since.

Re: Rate the NEW SHOWS as you Watch em

Nikita - Thumbs up! Nice surprise.
Hawaii 5-0 - Thumbs up! Pretty good.
Raising Hope - Thumbs up! Loved it.
The Event - Thumbs up! Redeemed at the end.
Undercovers - Thumbs up! Fun.

Lone Star - Undecided...very well done, but an unlikable lead.

Outsourced - Thumbs down...ok, but nothing must-see about it.
Running Wilde - Thumbs down...awkward. (But hoping it'll get better!)

Re: Rate the NEW SHOWS as you Watch em

Chase: C-
The Event: TBD
The Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret: B+
Lone Star: TBD
Mike & Molly: C
Outsourced: D-
Raising Hope: A+
Running Wilde: D-
Shit My Dad Says: F
Terriers: A

Shit My Dad Says gets an F because I couldn't even make it through the show and won't be giving it a second chance. As of right now, with only one episode, Running Wilde and Outsourced both get a D-, but expect that to change to an F if things don't significantly improve in the second episode.

EDIT: After watching the second episode of Running Wilde, I think I'll still leave it as a D-, because as bad as it was, Shit My Dad Says Was Worse. That said, I'm done with the show for now and don't plan to ever revisit it in the future unless I hear some VERY positive word of mouth about any of the other episodes. Expect Outsourced to be downgraded to an F though.

I usually work at night, so I record everything and watch it during the day. Having a dual tuner DVR and single tuner Tivo helps along with fast forwarding through the commercials.

LOL...I have 2 dual tuner Directv HD DVR's and between both of them, I have around 55 shows (new this season and old) on the To Do List.

And I also work nights most of the time as well.

Remember, these are just the new shows. Just think of all the returning ones he is watching too.

Here's mine:


Hellcats
Nikita
Terriers
The Defenders


$#*! My Dad Says


Hawaii Five-O
Mike and Molly
Better with You

Lone Star (changed after about 30 minutes)

I still have a few comedies to check out plus some that haven't aired yet and will add them later.
