returning shows

I love October. Because it means my birthday’s coming. 😀

I keep seeing promos for Friday Night Lights. I wasn’t originally planning on watching this show but… I might. It looks pretty! And I love the Fort Minor song that plays over the promo. What is wrong with me?! I don’t even like football, people. *sigh*

Does anyone know any fansites where I can find hi-res photos for the new TV shows (ie. Studio 60, Heroes, etc)? I haven’t had much luck while searching today.
So, my thoughts on a few returning shows…

Prison Break
There’s something *off* this season for me. Maybe it’s because the prison isn’t the primary setting anymore. I’ve always enjoyed the prison politics and now that they’re outside, it’s not so exciting for me. Especially since I CANNOT STAND the thought of T-Bags loose in the world. It gives me the creeps. And I just can’t take Mahone seriously. He’s too smart. I mean, really. REALLY? But whatever, Michael in a suit keeps me coming back. Though how DOES he keep that suit so clean? 😀

America’s Next Top Model
BWAHAHAHA. This show is awesome. I don’t know everyone’s names yet except Monique. Girl is CRAZY. I thought Jade (from last cycle) was arrogant but Monique is about ten times worse. UGH. No favorites just yet but I am liking the twins. They’ve both had amazing pictures. Oh, and Anchal rocks because she was the only one to actually say something to Monique when she was monopolizing the phone.

Grey’s Anatomy
Whoa, McSteamy. Go Addison! Hehe. 😀 In all seriousness, I am SO GLAD it looks like Derek and Addison are headed towards separation. Actually, I am SO GLAD *Derek* has finally realized that their relationship is over. Addison really wanted to try and repair their marriage and he went along with it because he thought it was the right thing to do. Ugh, he just prolonged their pain. And made himself look like a complete weasel since he continued to string Meredith along. I really liked Meredith and Derek in the first season but season 2 left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Still loving Cristina. Still don’t like George. But I like Callie. Which is weird since her storyline (as of now) revolves around George. And am I the only one who doesn’t think Izzie should return to the surgical program? I love her BUT she got too emotionally involved with a patient, she worsened his condition to get him a heart… she pretty much broke every rule in the book. I’m willing to suspend belief for my shows but seriously? She would not be returning to surgery.

Smallville
I *really* enjoyed the premiere. I can’t believe I’m so excited about this season. It might have been the promo picures I just stumbled on… or maybe it was because it was a solid episode. I loved the fight between Clark and Zod (“Kneel before Zod”). I loved that Chloe brushed off her kiss with Clark… and I actually believed her. I loved the open-ended Lex/Lana scene at the end (so angsty!). Plus, this episode introduced Jimmy Olsen! I think the show needed a fresh face. I’m definitely intrigued. It’ll be interesting to see where Clark is headed now that he’s pretty much all alone (can’t confide in Lex or Lana and Jor El and the Fortress are closed to him).
