Tonight: The Good Wife & The Forgotten

In 2009 Fall Season, 2009 Pilots, ABC, CBS, Cold Case, The Forgotten, The Good Wife on 09/22/2009 at 3:55 pm

The Good Wife

We’re pretty excited for tonight!  This evening marks the premiere of The Good Wife on CBS and, we have to admit, we’ve been looking forward to this show for quite some time.  The cast includes some of our favorite actors of all time, the promotional trailers look fantastic and even the artwork (see above) is looking pretty awesome.  Oh, and the concept sounds pretty good, too!

The Good Wife premieres tonight, Tuesday September 22nd at 10pm on CBS.

But wait!  Get your DVR’s ready because there’s also a new series on ABC this evening: The Forgotten.  Or ‘The forgotten‘ as it’s showing up on our Program Guide.  Nobody seems to know much about this series as the pilot was reshot after the lead character was recast with Christian Slater.

From all the trailers we’ve come across, it seems to be a serial in the vein of CBS’ Cold Case about regular folk who help find…well, the forgotten.  Check out some trailers we posted here and here.

The Forgotten premieres this evening, Tuesday September 22nd at 10pm on ABC.

Warehouse 13 Season Finale Tonight!

In 2009 Pilots, 2010 Summer Schedule, Summer Schedule, SyFy, Warehouse 13 on 09/22/2009 at 3:15 pm

Warehouse 13

This was most definitely the summer of cable when it came to original programming.  Networks like USA and SyFy slaughtered their older broadcast siblings in not only ratings, but also quality.  One of the big winners was Warehouse 13.  The new original series was launched by SyFy right around the time that they actually became SyFy, leaving the plainly original SciFi name behind.

Sci Fi geeks everywhere created an uproar over the new name and even the way they went about getting the rights to the name.  Many out there, critics too, claimed Warehouse 13 was just mindless zone-out style entertainment…Then the ratings started rolling out.  W13 was a hit.  A big hit.

We are proud to say that DVR Life was not one of those  that called Warehouse 13 mindless.  We dug the quirky artifacts and love-hate relations from the beginning.  And so here we are now.  The fall season is taking over TV schedules and the first season finale of Warehouse 13 airs tonight.  Don’t worry, though, as the show has already been renewed for a second season to air in summer 2010.  Here’s a quick peek at tonight’s season finale:

The season one finale of Warehouse 13 airs tonight, September 22nd at 9pm on SyFy.

House: Broken Review

A review of last night’s two hour House season premiere by Tara!
What an appropriate title for this episode. In every sense of the word, House was broken. And it took the very talented Andre Braugher (Homicide, Thief), playing House’s psychiatrist, Dr. Nolan, to not only make House see that but, more importantly, to acknowledge it, accept it and make peace with it.
This episode was not the traditional formula we are used to seeing. Rather than the hospital where the ‘team’ tries to figure out what’s wrong with this week’s patient, the first images we see are those of House going through withdrawals, in a singular cell like bedroom. Once the images stop and we see that House has begun to recover, it becomes clear that he is ready to leave. And he goes about doing so in typical House fashion.
With that we get our first introduction between Dr. Nolan and House. House tells him he’s a lot better and wants to leave, “Gonna miss you. Wanna start missing you as soon as possible.” The sarcasm begins. Nolan counters with, “your issues run deeper than Vicodin,” as he has been misusing the drug for years but his hallucinations happened only after two colleagues died. House wants to leave but Nolan stops him by saying he can’t without his recommendation.
Welcome to Ward Six.
Just a quick look around the room and we see men playing ping pong, a girl with very large and broken glasses holding a stuffed animal that even when I paused my DVR I couldn’t figure out what it was. I don’t know why but I’m curious.
