A couple of new shows that I will be tuning in for are about to start up. Tonight, Thursday, The League premiers on FX at 10:30 p.m. On Tuesday V will premier on ABC at 8:00 p.m.
The League is a new sitcom about fantasy football. Yes an idea that T-time came up with a long time ago, a tv show about guys in a fantasy football league is actually going to happen. Jonathan Toomey of TV Squad had this to say after watching tonight's first episode...
The pilot focuses largely on the tight-knit group of friends who comprise the league and how their everyday lives create complications when trying to figure out who to start at quarterback this week.
Sounds fantastic to me. Add to it that Jeff Schaffer, formerly of Curb Your Enthusiasm is one of the co-creators, and I am more excited than maybe I should be. If they don't come through with this, it will be a shame. There will be no room for a second fantasy football tv show in the future.
V is the new action/drama on ABC about aliens that come to Earth and hence are called The Visitors. From the previews it seems that they will look like humans, which makes it easier to watch/make. V stars Lost's Elizabeth Mitchell, Like Mike's Morris Chestnut and Double Dragon's Scott Wolf. Yeah that's right, I used Like Mike and Double Dragon!
Are they trying to take over the planet? Are they just trying to co-exist? It intrigues me...how bout you?
