“New Girl” and “Suburgatory” – Strong First Year Comedies, One Piece Shy of Greatness

Note: This piece contains a few minor and very general spoilers (the kind that can probably be found in the episode synopses). Most people should be fine, but if you're the kind of person who tries to avoid even the most minor plot details you probably want to wait until you've caught up with these shows to read this.

TV Discussion Thread

As I said to Jose in the comments of my last post, this week I will begin putting up these discussion threads where I, he, and anyone else who wishes to can discuss television without worrying about potentially spoiling Cougar Town for someone in the comments of a Revenge review or other things like that. These posts are designed to be a place where people can talk about any shows they want to, as well as to double as a way for me to post something at least once a week (which has been my goal from the start) even in weeks when I don't get the chance to write anything else. So pleased be aware that the comments on this post may contain spoilers for any number of shows in a given week.

A couple of quick rules, in addition to the usual ones about profanity and civility. First of all, please avoid movie or book spoilers, since this is a TV-centered thread. And if you are going to talk in-depth about any current premium cable series, please warn me ahead of time so I (and others) can skip your comment if we wish to. Feel free to discuss them, but out of respect for the fact that some of us haven't had the chance to watch yet, just make sure there's a warning. Thank you. 

Okay, that's about it. So, what shows captured your interest over the past week? Did you think the Awake pilot was as amazing as I did? And are you as worried about Cougar Town's survival as I am right now?
