- My Own Worst Enemy (Monday on NBC): Has possibilities. Christian Slater is an appealing lead. Basically it's True Lies: The Series.
- Fringe (Tuesday on Fox): No sympathetic characters. Too gross. Reminiscent of other shows I didn't like. Gave up 5 minutes into the second episode.
- Life on Mars (Thursday on ABC): Strong pilot. Great cast. While the premise of the show is sf/f, not sure how much sf/f content will be in each episode.
- Crusoe (Friday on NBC): Just watched a few minutes of the pilot. It looks great and has Sam Neill and Sean Bean. Story seems substantially different from what I remember of the book. Not a great timeslot.
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Friday on Cartoon Network): Gave up 5 minutes into the first episode. It's a series featuring everything I hated from Episodes 1-3, produced in a style of animation I find unattractive and hard to watch.
And I should point out the drastic changes in Smallville (CW): Most of the longtime supporting cast (including Lana and Lex) are gone, and it's effectively Lois and Clark: The Next Generation. It's been fun so far.
Any other new shows I should try?
