TV Premiere Week - Wednesday

I was busy catching up on all the Monday shows I missed (because I've been watching Band of Brothers on DVD...so good...I can't recommend it enough) and I missed The Reaper (God bless the DVR), but I'm glad to hear it was as good as expected. Tonight is another packed night (in fact, I'm having trouble deciding what to record at 10pm. Maybe someone can help me out), but lets start with the new show I've most been looking forward to...

Bionic Woman - From the team that brought you the new, very cool Battlestar Gallactica. Like BSG, Bionic Woman is an update of a 70's TV show. I never saw the 70's version, but you know this is gonna be better...because the 70's kinda sucked.

Kitchen Nightmares - This actually debuted last week and I loved it. I love Gordon Ramsey, even when he's screaming like a maniac. Thankfully, he shows a somewhat softer side here. A show about horrific kitchens, Gordon genuinely seems to want to help these troubled restaurateurs. It will probably get old (how many times can you see rotting food and unclean kitchens before you swear off eating out for good?), but for now, it's part of the line up.

America's next Top Model - I know, I know. It's crap. It glorifies the sad state of female body image issues in America and not one of the winners has gone on to become anything close to a top model, but I love it. I love the cattiness and Tyra's insanity. I can't help it. It's my guilty pleasure show. Deal with it...

Life and/or Dirty Sexy Money - Here's where I run into a problem. Both look good. One stars a fellow ginger (Damien Lewis) and the other stars Peter Krause. I want to record both, but Top Chef is on in the same time slot and I've obviously become very invested in TC (only 2 episodes left! Go Casey!!). When Top Chef ends, I'll be able to check them both out, but I can't decide which is worth investing in first...any ideas?

Once you mention BSG, all I can think of is "ahhhhhhh Battlestar," and long walks on the beach with Caprica Six.

Life, definitely Life!

We watched 3 premieres last night: Bionic Woman, Life, and Haunted. All were excellent. Life is very smart writing.

I watched Life and Dirty Sexy Money and enjoyed both very much, but I give the edge to Life.
