    The New girl is supposed to be good, Zooey Deshanel for the win.

    I may have mentioned it before but "House Of Lies" with Kristen Bell is starting in January.

    Here's a good reason to watch:

    The New Normal. Only seen the pilot so far but ep 2 is out, really like it, could turn out to be something worth watching

    Yeah not the best trailer, but it's worth having a look at to see if it works for you. Liking it myself.

    For the person who said that you can't really judge a show from the pilot episode, you really can.

    Story elements? Obviously less so, but there should be a fair whack of exposition at least (done right, obviously).

    The narrative/plot is only a "small" part of it, there are so many factors that make something great. I recently watched the pilot of Dexter (not for the first time), and it was amazing. The tone, the foundations for the narrative, the character introductions, they were all top notch. Lost's pilot episode? Breaking Bads? There are exceptions, such as The Wire, but there was nothing bad (at all) about their pilot, the show is just exceptionally slow burning.

    So yes, with something like Grimm (which I only watched the pilot of, because I have better things to watch), you can definitely see a massive, massive dive in quality, and in but a very few rare cases, it is obvious.

    Get bent.

    Just started on newsroom which seems to somehow picked up a bit of a West Wing vibe.

    Enjoying it after 3 episodes.

    Not really that surprising that it did, given it's Aaron Sorkin again.

    Just watched the "Revolution" pilot episode..... Very nice. :D

    Def recommend it, though early days I guess...

    Knowing the Americans it'll get cancelled without finishing off the story... *cough cough* Sarah Connor, *cough* v *cough* that show with the dinosaurs and the guy with the beard that was good *cough coygh*.

    I don't research stuff... saw a trailer on HBO Asia which looked interesting and decided to download it and see if it was any good.

    Somehow meant that there were similarities, a frenetic pace combined with flawed but brilliant idealistic minds.

    Glad to know why since West Wing had quite some staying power so hopefully this will as well.

    Dunno how "new" these are considered but I'm enjoying Louie and I'm awaiting season two of Person of interest.
    I was bored after breaking bad ended and watched the trailer of "Sinbad". Safely to say you can skip that.

    Revolution seems promising as well btw.

    Revolution was cheesey and very fluffy, but ok.

    LAST RESORT on the other hand, was superb! Give it a look now, the pilot is online!

    HBO's got some new stuff coming out soon. Can't remember the names or what any of the shows were about, but I remember being slightly optimistic.

    Sam Mendes and John Logan (co writer on Skyfall and writer for next 2 bond have sent out a script to premium cable networks. Show is about "origin story set in the 1800s London in the vein of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," starring such characters as Van Helsing and Doctor Frankenstein, who would be tracking down and killing vampires.
