What You Should Watch This Season

Let me say up front, I’ve never liked Buffy The Vampire Slayer. It’s not for lack of trying, I’ve probably watched four or more episodes now and it just never grabbed me. Yet Joss Whedon is worshiped as a near deity by many and I felt compelled to try multiple times to like it, it just never took.
So when I found out he was going to have a new science-fiction show on Fox I thought, “Hey, maybe I’ll like this better.” To say that I like it better is a big-assed understatement. Many shows struggle to get good, something just doesn’t gel in the first few episodes, or maybe even the first couple of seasons and they hit their stride later. On the strength of the first episode of Firefly all I can say is that you should be watching it and if it gets any better it’ll be another X-Files.
Second, and I can’t stress this enough, if you didn’t watch 24 last season watch it this season. This is a show that deserves to go on and on. The new season premieres Oct. 29th.
