NBC Fall Preview

NBC has their 2007-2008 line up (click the "All Shows" tab) out, and there are some interesting things to take from what's out there.

It seems that they have learned that there can be too much of a good thing. The season will start for the first time in a decade, there will only be one Law and Order show, and they went with the winner of the three: Law and Order: SVU. While the subject matter of the stories is not what you would have dinner table conversation about, the cast is far and away the best. Don't worry. If you think you will be having withdrawal, the other two shows are back at mid-season.

In other news, it looks like Crossing Jordan has come to an end. Not only is the show nowhere to be found in the full schedule, the cast/credits for the new Bionic Woman series, you will see that Miguel Ferrer (formerly Dr. Macy) is listed second below the main character. This may explain why the finale had such a clean ending a couple of weeks ago.

Finally, I saw on Amazon that Season 1 of Heroes will be available on DVD late this summer. I expected these to be pressed and ready to ship after the finale last week, but it looks like the end of August is the date. This won't leave much time for folks to catch up. According to NBC's fall preview, the new season will begin the week of September 24. You will have to be pretty dedicated and average an episode every day or so to catch up.

Until next time...

We used to catch up on missed episodes when the summer reruns were on. In the old days, they only showed the best ones. Then they cut down on the number and reran them all. Now, I guess you have to see them on video. Mom.
