It being the fall, there are an abundance of new shows on TV, most of which won't be on TV a year from now. I missed a lot since school's been pretty brutal recently, so I was wondering if there was anything that anybody particularly likes. For the record, I've only seen two new shows. Whitney was on after The Office and has been less than stellar. Up All Night, on the other hand, has been fantastic so far and I'd urge everyone to catch up on Hulu.

I'll be watching American Horror Story, FX has been nearly flawless with shows lately.

I'll be honest, I have no idea what FX has other than Sunny. I'll tune into AHS, is there anything else on FX that's really good?

It's not new, but I just caught up on the six episode first season of The Walking Dead, and I will SO be tuning in to season two.

Otherwise, Terra Nova is the only new show I've really been watching. And it's only marginally caught me so far.

Have you seen the trailer for season two yet? I was a fan of the comics long before the series was announced, and if they follow the original storyline somewhat, it's going to be getting even better.

Well, I dunno about all these shows y'all are rambling on about, but Parks & Recreation is the funniest show on TV.

What, wrong thread?

Nope, you are just fine where you are. Thanks for that and I hope the rest of your day is cool beans.

And I guess from this thread I should also start watching Archer. I will start that NOW.

It's by the same people who did Frisky Dingo and Sealab 2021 both great Adult Swim cartoons

I haven't (just, like, the little 10 second promos), but I'm really excited. I'm a little nervous that the production turmoil (Darabont out as showrunner) will hurt, though.

So I watched the pilot of American Horror Story. There was a lot to like and be intrigued about, but it was really jarring. And not just in the intentional way that a horror flick is jarring. I can't say that I enjoyed it, but I can't say I didn't like it. But, by the end, I felt like I'd survived it. It's not really a great feeling when you're just trying to enjoy a show. Not sure I'll be able to stick it out over the long haul if it remains so ... jarring.

I'm quite impressed with how jarring it is, if it wasn't for commercials I'd be tense for hours afterwards... And that's what a horror flick/show should be.

However I'm just about finished with Terra Nova the last episode was a direct rip of the movie Pitch Black, I need to see something original but I don't think that's going to happen
