Supernatural

Friday was the Season 6 premiere of Supernatural.  As much as I LOVE the show, I was not happy with the premiere.

Dean has been living with his girlfriend Lisa and son Ben for the last year.  Just like he promised Sam he would, he gave up hunting for a normal life.  But in this episode he gets a visit from the yellow eyed demon but really it's a Djiin.  Sam comes back to save Dean.  He's been alive for about a year and the only person that didn't know was Dean.  Of course he's mad about it since he tried finding a way to bring him back.  Also back is their grandfather Samuel and other family members that are hunters from their mother's side.  I don't like Samuel and the rest of the family, I think there is something wrong with them and I don't trust them.  Then at the end they kill 2 out of the 3 Djiins after them and the Campbell's capture the third one alive for some reason and get her out of there before Sam & Dean see.  Just like I said, something isn't right with them.  Dean decides to stay with Lisa & Ben and Sam keep hunting.

There was no Castiel and hopefully there will be.  Bobby is alive and they visit him briefly.  Sam is hunting and Dean is not.  All is not right in the world of Supernatural.

Chuck/The Event - 09/20

Chuck - Thought it was a good episode, although a little slow at the beginning.  I figured that he would be the one to save Sarah and Casey in Russia and that he would tell them about his mom and get back to being a spy.  Laughed at the whole sexting thing when Sarah was asking for help and Morgan was replying.  I figured that Ellie was pregnant and Chuck wouldn't tell her about him become a spy again.  I'm thinking though that this will be the last season for Chuck.  I mean where else can they go in this show?

The Event - Very confusing with all the different time changes and exactly what was going on.  I think the two people they met at the cruise had something to do with the girl's disappearance.  The ending though is what got me interested.  Where did the plane go?  Looks like it got warped to another time or place.  I'll watch next week but if next week isn't good then I might not watch this show.

There have been too many shows that I watch and only last one season.  I watched Invasion and it had big potential and it just didn't go where it needed to go and only lasted one season.  Same is true for Flashforward, which kind of had a crappy ending.  I mean they knew their future and yet they still came true.  Then another blackout with another future.

Tonight I'll probably record Glee and watch it either later tonight or later in the week.  Then tomorrow is the second episode of Survivor:Nicaragua.

Monday Night

I'm excited for the return of Chuck tonight.  Most of my new shows are returning this week so I'll have a busy week.  Last week I watched the finale of America's Got Talent.  A show I started watching last year because there was never anything on.  The kids like that show too.  But I flipped back and forth between that and Survivor.  It's no big deal to miss the first few episodes anyway.  I also caught up on two episodes of The Vampire Diaries.  I'm not sure I like that Caroline is now a vampire too.  I mean is the whole cast going to turn into a supernatural being (witch, vampire, werewolf).  Last night I watched the season finale of The Gates.  I'm pretty certain the show won't be back next summer and it kind of did end.  But tonight it's Chuck and I might check out The Event.  The event is probably people watching the show.  I feel a cold coming on (stuffy nose and sore throat) so not sure how late I'll be staying up.  Also on this week is Glee, The Big Bang Theory, Grey's Anatomy, Fringe & Supernatural.  I finally got caught up on Glee last week so I'm all set.  So sad that True Blood is over.  I don't like how they did the Fairies.  Also Psych won't be back until November.  I'll try to post tomorrow on my thought of Chuck.

The Return of New TV Shows


I meant to write this yesterday but the day got away from me and I didn't get a chance.  Then at 8:30pm last night I realize I forgot to record The Vampire Diaries season premiere.  So I'll have to watch it online.  Here's what I'm planning to watch this season.

The Vampire Diaries - It's on the CW and it's season 2 and I plan to record it since it's on at 7pm and it's too scary for the kids to watch.  The show is based on books written by L.J. Smith.  I've read the first 4 and attempted to read the 5th and hated it.  The series is based on them but many things have changed and I like the changes made.  We left off last season with Katherine coming back, Elena's brother possibly becoming a vampire.

Psych - When it comes back for the second half.  It is currently on season 5 on USA and I watch it online since I don't have cable.  I just finished the summer finale yesterday and can't wait.  Juliet kissed Shawn but she has a boyfriend!

True Blood - Season 3 finale is this Sunday and I'll be watching it online.  This show is based on the Southern Vampire Series by Charlaine Harris.  I've read all the books and they have kept many things from the books and the changes they've made I'm happy about.

Survivor:Nicaragua - I don't even know what season this is but I have been watching this show for a few years.  I'm not an avid watcher but I catch most of the episodes.  This season they have moved it from Thursday nights to Wednesday nights. The season begins Wednesday, September 15th on CBS.

Chuck - This is the fourth season and I hope it's good.  The season begins Monday, September 20th on NBC.  We left off last season with Chuck's dad dying, him finding out his mom is alive, he quit being a spy and he's going to search for his mother who will be played by Linda Hamilton.

The Event - It will premiere after Chuck on NBC and there's really nothing else on so I might check it out.

Glee - Season two will premiere on Tuesday, September 21st on FOX.  I am still catching up on Season 1 online and I'm totally hooked on the show.

The Big Bang Theory - This was a show that I only watched occasionally but I managed to watch all 3 seasons this summer and I LOVE it!  So I plan to watch Season Four premiere on Thursday, September 23rd on CBS.  The show was always on Monday nights when I watched Chuck and Heroes so I always missed it.

Grey's Anatomy - I still watch this show but not totally crazy about it.  It will premiere Thursday, September 23rd on ABC.

Fringe - The third season will begin on Thursday, September 23rd on FOX.  The show first appealed to me because it looked similar to The X-Files (a show I watched even after Mulder left) and it has Joshua Jackson (Pacey from Dawson's Creek).  It's a good show and one that Dan and I enjoy to watch together.  Last season ended with AltOlivia coming to our world and real Oliva being stuck in Alternate Universe.  Of course nobody knew about the switch.

Supernatural - I'm excited that this season will be more similar to season 1.  Just the Winchester boys killing a monster each week and no more Apocalypse.  They moved to show from Thursdays to Friday, it will premiere Friday, September 24th on CW.  We left off last season with Sam letting Lucifer in and trapping him.  Assuming Sam was dead, Dean went to his girlfriend to help raise a boy he believes is his son.  But at the end we see Sam watching Dean eat dinner with his family.  So Sam did not die and somehow came back.

Desperate Housewives - My nighttime soap opera that I watch Sunday nights when there's nothing else on.  It premieres Sunday, September 26th on ABC.

No Ordinary Family - Reminds me of The Incredibles and Heroes and looks interesting so I'll be watching.  It premieres Tuesday, September 28th on ABC.

So here is how my schedule looks:
Mondays - Chuck, The Event & Hawaii Five-O (watch while airing)
Tuesdays - Glee (record since Dan won't watch it), No Ordinary Family (watch while airing)
Wednesdays - Survivor:Nicaragua (watch while airing), Psych (watch online)
Thursdays - The Vampire Diaries (record), The Big Bang Theory (watch while airing), Fringe (watch while airing), Grey's Anatomy (watch online)
Fridays - Supernatural (record)
Sundays - Desperate Housewives (watch while airing)

First Day of School

X started first grade today.  He was very excited but he still made him come in with him and walk him down to the cafeteria.  I found his friend and told him to go sit by him and I left.  I picked him up at 11:30am since it was a half day and he said he had a great day.  Here are some pictures.
