2010 NBC Upfronts…. Look Okay… Not Great.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Networks announced their new shows!!! I get all gitty inside. I am a TV junky. There was a time when I would not leave my apartment if it was a night of good TV on. Escaping into the television is something I do to relax. This is hard to do when you are in a relationship with someone who doesn’t share your passion for TV. They don’t see the importance of you needing to watch the show when it first airs. They don’t understand that you don’t want to engage in banter while your favorite show is on. They don’t get that dinner plans should be scheduled around Desperate Housewives, Nurse Jackie, Lost,etc…

Here is some of the shows that were announced. Some of them suck and some of them don’t suck as much. I didn’t mention all of the shows. Some of them just wasn’t worth it

‘The Event’ starring Blair Underwood as president of the United States is sort of like 24. Jason Ritter (John Ritter’s son) plays a man that is working to stop a rumored plan to assassinate  the president of the United States. I will have to check  out this show on the strength that Blair  Underwood is in it. Let it be known that I prefer to see Blair Underwood verses Taye Diggs. Blair can get it! And by “get it” I mean he can get IT!!! You know what IT is!!! 🙂

‘Chase’ has Kelli Giddish as Annie Frost a “tough” US Marshall. Think Saving Grace with a younger and less flawed and less believable lead.  The good thing is Jesse Metcalfe from ‘Desperate Housewives’ is back on TV. He looks good as ever. You can also see Rose Rollins (Tasha) From The ‘L Word’. I am glad to see Rose working. Good luck Rose and Jesse! I will be rooting for ya. Can’t say I will watch, but I am sending you guys the most positive energy. I am basing my opinion soley on the trailers.

‘Undercovers’ is sort of like 1979’s ‘Hart to Hart’ or ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith’ …with less flare. ‘Undercovers’ is about two retired CIA agents return to their agent days. This trailer looks boring and didn’t show any reason why I should watch ‘Undercovers’ AT ALL. Sure Boris Kodjoe is cute and lots of women find him irresistible. But I CAN resist. I like Boris…I am just not in love with Boris. His wife is played by British actress Gugu Mbatha- Raw, seems extremely dull. There is very little chemistry between  Boris and Gugu from what I see in the trailer. I expect ‘Undercovers’ to make me eat my words, being as though it’s from J.J. Abrams. Well, you let me know what you think of the trailer and it’s potential.

‘Outlaw’actually looks good. Jimmy Smits returns as a former judge turned lawyer in ‘Outlaw’. I’m interested…..

‘Love Bites’ looks really fun and charming. In the trailer NBC made it point to let us know a writer from ‘Sex And The City’ is involved. I giggled.

These are just a few that caught my eye. To view the trailers of these shows and more click here
