Preparing for the Fall Preview

It is mid September and I haven't even really started thinking about what I need to do to write this year's series of Fall TV preview posts.

This is, sadly, par for the course right now. I am really lagging behind on many things digital and I've got to find a way to get back into the routine. And perhaps nothing fits that bill better than the Fall TV Preview posts that I've faithfully produced each year that I've been blogging.

I'm not going to suggest that you can't approach the new slate of shows without my guidance. I wouldn't dare be so foolish. But here's hoping I can find something interesting and entertaining to say about some of the shows that will be impeding your time in the next few months. And maybe I can highlight one show that you might not watch . . . but maybe I can convince you?

I won't try to examine everything--and don't be deceived into thinking that I have access to actual shows any sooner than you do. I'm no professional. I'm just giving you my impressions of network Web sites and magazine write ups, plus throwing in my two cents for shows I've been watching for a while and why I think you should watch them to. So I'm going to be picking and choosing in whatever way suits my fancy when I sit down to write.

Normally I try to get the shows all written up before they begin to air. I may miss a few of those this year. I think, in light of this late start and struggle for motivation, that I will kick things off in semi-real time tomorrow night with a review of the new show Ringer, which premieres tomorrow night at 9 pm, I believe. It stars Sarah Michelle Geller (of Buffy the Vampire Slayer) fame, which is 75% of why I am deciding to give this show a try at all. But it does have an interesting murder/twins/mystery plot that might capture the imagination. I won't say much more here and try to save some thoughts and descriptions for tomorrow night after it airs live.

After that is up and running, we'll see. I think most shows still don't premiere until next week, so I'll use Ringer to get my butt in gear and try to have things up on a rolling basis as other schedules and activities allow.

At the very least, I can try to tweet out my impressions of things and keep in touch that way. (You REALLY should follow me on Twitter anyway.)

So, keep an eye out for my Ringer review tomorrow.

Until then . . .
