The new TV season started yesterday, which is always a bad time for my writing productivity. For years I’ve had this “rule” that I have to give every show a chance by watching at least one episode because you never know what might turn out better than a terrible sounding premise.
Jane the Virgin is a great example of this from last year – I thought it sounded pretty bad, but it was one of my favorite shows from fall 2014.
Whereas last night I watched Minority Report, which was the fall 2015 show I was most excited about, but I thought it was pretty much a dud. I might give it one more chance, since I still like the premise, but the execution left much to be desired.
Sadly, after reading the descriptions of this year’s new fall shows, the thought of sampling all of them sounds pretty tedious. The lack of originality in the new offerings demonstrates why so many people are turning to Netflix. Actually, I’m not sure if I’ll bother watching them all, and if I do, it will be out of habit rather than interest. Blerg.

9/20 - Grin wide,girl skips with ice cream she saved to buy. It splats on sidewalk. Old woman passing says, "Sic vita est
, dearie, get used to it."
9/21 - When his wife stepped out in sexy lingerie, he growled, "Vive la différence
," ignoring that his man boobs were almost as big as hers.
9/22 - Cruel experiment to become someone's weltgeist
