What I’m looking forward to this fall…

The Vampire Diaries (September 10th at 9pm) Thank the TV gods, Kevin Williamson has returned bringing his angsty storyline and snappy dialogue back into my life. And this time the Dawson’s Creek mastermind returns with vampires. I am so there. Bring on the angst and pretty, pretty undead people!


Supernatural (September 10th at 9pm) The boys are back together and fighting both angels and demons. As if that wasn’t enough, Cas is back for the season and I’ve been missing Jim Beaver. His Facebook updates aren’t enough. Plus did I mention the boys are back together and fighting both angels and demons.

Bones (September 17th at 8pm) The finale sucked, but in the grand scheme of the show, it’s just an episode. Bones and Booth are an awesome couple and I fall more and more in love with Sweets. Plus I can once again hope that Angela and Hodgins get back togther. The show hasn’t been right since they broke up and Zack became a killer. However, that’s neither here nor there, a brand new season of possibility has arrived.

Fringe (September 17th at 9pm) I didn’t love the first season, but the finale has me intrigued enough to tune in this year. The interplay between Peter and Walter really draw me to the show, but I have never really cared for Agent Dunham.

Legend of the Seeker (November 7th at 5pm) I was impressed with how the first season ended and all the interviews I‘ve read the second season looks even more interesting. With the change of power, there are so many story possibilities, especially with the Mord’Sith.  Besides, I’m totally a Richard/Kahlan shipper!

Winter Shows

Chuck (March 2010) Chuck was renewed and now has kung fu powers. Numfar, do the dance of joy!

Game of Thrones (Winter/Spring 2010) I’ve read the series and the cast looks phenomenal. I mean, Sean Bean (Sharpe’s War), Jennifer Ehle (Pride & Prejudice), Mark Addy (A Knight’s Tale), Harry Lloyd (Will from BBC’s Robin Hood series), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (New Amsterdam), and Lena Headey (Sarah Conner Chronicles). I’m a sucker for epic fantasy shows and I need something to justify keeping my HBO subscription until True Blood returns next year. This could definitely be the show!
