What television shows in the new Fall season
are you most looking forward to?
Norris, Purchase Agent
"I can't say I'm excited because I hardly watch any TV.
I'm an early to rise, late to bed type person. There must
be a lot of things on TV that excite people, though.
Eddie, Law Student
"I don't watch TV. I watch movies on video. They tend
to be low budget and independent, for the most part. Foreign
films. I have very little patience for American television.
I think it's crappy. The only thing I watch is Oprah very
late at night, because I love Oprah. I don't think she does
trash television. I watch PI [Politically Incorrect] right
Larissa, Non-Profit Administration
I do watch some television. After work, I watch sitcoms, but
not on a regular basis. I watch a lot of movies. Mostly foreign
"I mean, the sitcoms are good. I love Sex in the City,
but I don't have cable. During the week, I don't have time...I'm
a student. But I just watched twelve episodes on video.
Ola, District Manager for Community
"I have a very interesting situation because my parents
never cared for us watching TV that much. But, I don't think
anyone said it better than Sonia Sanchez in 1996 when she
said, 'You all need to turn off that idiot box!'. And she
was right, because much of what you see on television really
doesn't do much to better the human spirit. I don't really
watch a lot of it, not only because of time constraints, but
because there really is no substance. But that's just me."
"I'm too busy trying to get work. Photography is a twenty-four
hour kind of job."
"I think there is way too much exposure with the reality
shows, especially the ones I've seen recently...what is it...Fear
Factor? It's ridiculous, it's dangerous. Absolutely NOT the
reality shows! I think Seinfeld definately was the a show
I'd watch. That was my favorite show. Once it was off the
air, I didn't watch TV as much as I used to. I mean, there's
sports, no question about it. What can I say? I'm a man! He-my
son-watches Digimon. Pokemon isn't as popular. It's Digimon.
"I don't care if any programs come back. I don't watch
television, so it doesn't matter."
"A show I WON'T be seeing is The Weakest Link. I hate
dw: "Why do you hate it?"
"The lady. The lady...she sucks."
"I haven't seen anything that has gotten my attention."
dw: "Do you watch TV?"
"I watch Ally McBeal, Boston Public, The West
Wing and...what's the one with the cops? Law & Order.
There's this one show called The Other Half. It's a show where
men talk about issues with women. It's coming on Fox. I'm
curious to see what that'll be like.
"I like a little something with humor, but I'm not really
excited about anything in the Fall. I'm a little bit of an
HBO fan, but I don't have cable. Oz and that new show, 6 Feet
Under, look pretty good. It just seems like the new shows
are focused around comedy; it has joke-type humor and I'm
not into that. When the season comes, I'm into NBA.
Well, if you ask these folks, it looks like nothing interesting
is coming on television this Fall. Not Fall. Not Summer. Not
EVER. Me, I've always loved picking out new shows to watch
each exciting new season. It's like Christmas.
I'm looking forward to the new shows Crossing
Jordan, Philly, Alias, Thieves and 24. And let's not forget
my favorite repeat offenders, Dark Angel, Buffy the Vampire
Slayer and Felicity. Is Max going to die? Is Buffy really
dead? Will Ben come back to find Felicity has shacked up with
Noel? We'll just have to wait and watch!
See you in the Fall!
