DVD Update.

How I Met Your Mother, Season 2 - October 2
Gilmore Girls, Season 7 - November 13

Random comment: I watched The Starter Wife today while continuing to unpack and organize my apartment. Good stuff. Entertaining, if a little cheesy at times. I liked it. And I get why Debra was nominated for the Emmy.

I think I'm part of the Nerd Herd.

So, I think I love Chuck.

I hadn't really heard much about the show... something from Kristin or Korbi at E! about how funny he was at the TCA's, but before that... not much. Maybe I wasn't paying attention.

Today I saw the Pilot.

And it's funny. Like, actually funny. You have to suspend your disbelief for a little bit (The $11/hour computer geek opens an email and downloads all the US/World Security secrets into his brain via a parade of images - think the creepy room from LOST on speed, with less use of the word Jacob.) but it's worth it. Zachary Levi carries the show well for a newcomer. He's got that effortless, Jim Halpert-esque charm... slightly-dorky-but-irrestible-for-some-reason, quality. (That's a high compliment from me, ok? You're talking to the girl who loved Seth Cohen.) There's Sarah Lancaster (Everwood, What About Brian) as Chuck's sister, and newbies Yvonne Strzechowski and Joshua Gomez as the mysterious CIA agent and quirky best friend.

Chuck is full of... promise. Just like Ryan Howard. I have no idea how the rest of the TV audience will react - who can predict these things? - but I give it a hefty, "Go for it!"

Premieres at 8 p.m., September 24 on NBC

Proof's 2007 Fall Schedule

FALL 2007
I know, I know. The 2007-2008 Television Season doesn't officially begin until mid-late September, but most shows go back into production in a week or so - and some are already there. I figure, if they're back at work, it's never too early for me to prepare. So, if you're planning to follow along this year, here's what you can expect from me (so far).


10 p.m., Brothers and Sisters, ABC


8 p.m., How I Met Your Mother, CBS

9 p.m., Heroes, NBC and 24, FOX (January)

10 p.m., October Road, ABC (Mid-Season)

I'm giving it a second chance to get better!


9 p.m., House, FOX


8 p.m., Pushing Daisies, ABC

Saw the Pilot and loved it.

9 p.m., Private Practice, ABC and Gossip Girl, CW

The latter is a guilty pleasure, for sure. Screw that, they're both guilty pleasures and the first one has to prove itself.

8 p.m., LOST, ABC (February)


9 p.m., The Office, NBC

Don't forget, the first four episodes are an hour long!

9 p.m ., Grey's Anatomy, ABC

I'm giving it a second chance to get better!


(But Likely Will Give It A Shot)

Miss Guided, ABC

The Rules for Starting Over, FOX

Reaper, CW


(or, Will Catch Up On At Later Date)

Entourage, HBO

Their new season is ongoing, and I'm waaaay behind.

The Return of Jezebel James, FOX

I love ASP, but it comes on Wednesdays at 8:30, which means I probably won't follow it religiously.

Scrubs, NBC

Final season, so I must watch at some point, but I'd probably need to watch last season first.


Cashmere Mafia, ABC

Dirty Sexy Money, ABC

Just trust me. The pilots were a tad scary, especially the former. DSM was tolerable, but I'm not arranging my night around it.

Such a long, long time...

Wow. I truly didn't mean to be out of pocket as long as I have been... but sometimes life gets in the way, just a little bit! Moving to California, starting school, trying to find a place to live - it's been insane! But it's beginning to settle in, thank goodness!!!

Of course, we don't really care what I've been doing. We care about TV. So, let's get to what I know at the moment.

Upcoming TV/DVD release dates:

August 21 - HOUSE, S3
August 28 - HEROES, S1
September 4 - THE OFFICE, S3
September 11 - GREY'S ANATOMY, S3
September 25 - BROTHER'S and SISTERS, S1
October 23 - VERONICA MARS, S3
December 11 - LOST, S3
24, S6 - ?

Hope you're still out there, somewhere.
