I need to remember to wait a few episodes before passing judgement on shows. Based on the first episode I was ready to proclaim Studio 60 the best thing since peanut butter (people always say the best thing since sliced bread – but if I had to do without one peanut butter or bread I wouldn’t give up the PB.) Anyway 3 episodes later and I can barely get through it – from the beginning with its horrible theme song to the fact that Perry and Whitford are supposed to be these great comedy writers and yet their skits aren’t funny – it’s just not well formed.
On the other hand there’s Heroes, good enough to make me worry about the competition it will give 24 come January. It has the total creep factor that X-Files mastered as well as the comic pieces. It’s only 4 episodes in and it’s a must watch for me – up there with Lost and 24. I’m hoping it doesn’t pull a Prison Break – a show I gave up on half-way through it’s first season.
If you haven’t watched – you can watch previous episodes online at NBC: Heroes
