Premieres Thursday, September 18th

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles on FOX (Season 2)

TTSCC makes it past it's first season to continue the mythos building stories that happen between T2 and T3. As the season developed, it started touching more on the mythos and leaned away from the obvious corny terminator humor. I think the development got better as the season went on.

Bruce says: This show started out pretty slow with tried and old lame humor and some logistical issues. It bordered on lame, but as it went on it started to integrate with the mythos of the franchise. It started weaving that which happened in the show with events from within the movies. In my book, it got good. This one became a Bruce Fave.

Premieres Monday, September 8th

The Mentalist on CBS (NEW)

This is about an independent consultant with the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), who has a remarkable track record for solving serious crimes by using his razor sharp skills of observation. The commercials seem interesting at best.

Bruce says: I have nothing to say. The CBI??? Hmm. Is there such a thing? I even live in CA!

Premieres Tuesday, September 23rd

The Shield, The Final Act on FX (Season 7)

The Shield starts the 7th and last season of this dirty, gritty cop drama. How will it end for Vic Mackey? His boss wants his corrupt butt out of the force. Diro Kesakhian wants Vic and his family dead for the Armenian money train. (Back in season 2!) Starring Michael Chiklis, Benito Martinez and CCH Pounder.

Bruce says: I really liked the first 2 seasons, but lost touch as other things took priority. I am going to have to get back in touch for this final season. It was an addicting fave, and will probably sneak it's way into my viewing schedule.

Premieres Tuesday, September 2nd

The Unit on CBS (Season 4)

A covert ops unit and their families dealing with the secretive jobs, the political policies and the fallout from the bad assignments as they follow their orders to keep the world a safer place.

Bruce says: I love this show. It blends family life with covert stuff and the gray areas in between. There's more to it that meets the eye and they've got a pretty good handle on this finicky balance one's "job" and family. I can relate! A definite Bruce Fave.

Premieres Sunday, September 28th

True Blood on HBO (NEW)

Vampires "come out" and become part of society in one small town. humans and vampires co-habitating in a small Louisiana town after the vampires have discovered a Japanese-made synthetic blood called TruBlood. This moves the vamps from predators to “fellow citizens.” Eesh.

Valentine, Inc. on the CW (NEW)

Valentine is a new comedy drama about Greek gods living among us.
