Could Be Worth It…
Enlightened (HBO, Monday, Oct. 10 at 9:30/8:30c )
Laura Dern plays a woman trying to brighten her life (and others’) after having a nervous breakdown. The premise makes it sound somewhat similar to The Big C (woman has life-altering event and changes outlook on said life), but Laura could make it truly fun to watch, much like that other Laura (Linney).
Once Upon a Time (ABC, Sunday, Oct. 23 at 8/7c )
Big names like Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison playing out fairy tales is fun to watch, but the pilot dragged a bit. There is a lot to work with here, so here’s hoping it finds its footing.
Grimm (NBC, Friday, Oct. 21 at 10/9c )
I have one suggestion on how to make this show watchable: Put some women in it — and I don’t mean the victims of the Brothers Grimm-inspired crimes. Eerie with a perfect Portland backdrop, it’s good, but could use a dose of estrogen.
You Should Skip…
Last Man Standing (ABC, Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 8/7c )
This show stars Tim Allen as someone a lot like himself. Haven’t we seen this before?
Man Up (ABC, Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 8:30/7:30c )
Three dude friends try to prove how manly they are. Unsubscribe.
