Two new TV shows have caught my eye. I know, I know. What am I doing watching the boob tube when I should be writing? Sometimes, I’m just too brain dead after playing with the kids all day that not only can I not function well enough to write, I can’t focus enough to read. I end up scanning the page over and over without getting anything out of it. During those times, it’s nice to have a show or two recorded on the DVR. AND if I can convince my hubby to snuggle up on the couch with me while I allow the TV to take over my mind, then I’m also getting some “us” time in there, too.
The first show I discovered is The Listener. Tres cool and very well written. I love the dialogue. The writer is not only clever, but witty, too. I’d say this show is kind of a combination of Ghost Whisperer and Medium without the ghosts or dreams. The main character, Tory, is a telepath and because of this natural gift, he’s able to help the police solve crimes. The fun part is only his EMT partner knows about his secret ability. During the last episode, the main detective and her boss started to wonder how he’s able to solve the crimes before they do. This should get interesting…
The other show premiered last night. It’s called Merlin. I love everything medieval, so this was a natural fit for me, but I wasn’t sure about the whole fantasy part of it. As it turns out, I should look into reading some fantasy novels. I actually like the magical world of witches, dragons, and enchantments. Who knew?
Have you checked out these shows? Any other new shows you’d recommend?
