So just when Smallville finally isn’t sucking so bad (or so I’ve heard from people that actually still watch it) the CW decides to add some competition for it (ultimately probably replacing it seeing as how they both have the same executive producers). Yesterday they announced “The Graysons” and if you can’t guess what it’s about you fail at life 😉 . Anyway it’s about Robin (a.k.a Dick Grayson still) and his family (before they were killed obviously). It’s going to be set in modern times and I’m sure Dick (or DJ as he’s being called seeing as how people are immature) will probably be highschool age so lots of girls can oggle whoever plays him (even though he’s supposed to be pretty young when his parents are killed).
Lots of people are saying how this show is going to suck because supposedly the only thing that made Smallville great was the fact that Superman already had super powers. I don’t even like Superman and I used to watch Smallville. It was a good drama in the beginning. I think it’s major flaw was the fact that the CW tried to keep playing on that drama without moving the Superman story forward fast enough. But, seeing as how the CW has a lot of really popular dramas, I’m sure they’re going to have a plan for making this show successful. I mean the executive producers of Smallville will have had time to learn from their mistakes and the CW will probably cast someone hot to play Robin (I mean that’s all Supernatural has going for it and those guys aren’t really that hot and has anyone noticed that they’re really gay for each other?). I’m guessing that will fix most of people’s concerns about the show and if not they can just turn it into a weird circus family drama.
I hope that (not to sound vindictive and creepy) the Graysons get offed early personally. That way Dick can be emo and get adopted by Batman and whine to his schoolmates about how he has no personal life and how his parents are dead ect. ect. Then he can turn into Robin and start prowling the streets at night in order to avenge his family. I mean even a Batman show from the Robin perspective would be pretty interesting to me. So I’m looking forward to this show as another thing I can watch in case they end up killing Reaper too 😦 .
In other news, there’s no Office tonight because of the stupid debate, but it’s perfectly ok for NBC to show 2 crappy “My Name is Earls” instead of one of each. I’m angry seeing as how I’ve been looking forward to it all week 😛 that and the fact that “My Name is Earl” sucks hardcore.
Yay The Office is coming back with a one-hour season premiere on September 25th. I’ve really been missing it ever since the “Goodbye, Toby” episode. I want to find out what happens with Jim and Pam, Dwight, Andy and heck, even Angela. If you didn’t see what happened I guess I won’t spoil it since NBC was having technical difficulties yesterday when I was trying to rewatch last season’s episodes. I will say it was both awesome and slightly disappointing but in good ways.
Anyways this year mid-season The Office is supposed to have a spin-off. I was thinking it might be of the Utica branch with Karen but it could also be “The Warehouse” and show Darryl (Craig Robinson is also playing in Pineapple Express) as their “boss”. Maybe they’ll follow Toby to Jamaica. There’s a rumor that seems pretty for sure that Aziz Ansari of MTV’s Human Giant has been cast for a role in the spinoff. Saturday Night Live’s Amy Poehler is also a rumored possibility. She’s supposedly leaving SNL after her baby is born sometime around November. Personally I like her the insane way she is but I think she’ll need to tone it back a little. Otherwise I think it will be too much for the show. I’ve heard a lot of rumors about Dwight being in charge of the spin-off but I really think he should stay at Scranton. It just wouldn’t be the same without him.
In other related news Rainn Wilson aka Dwight Schrute, is going to be in the new Transformers 2 movie. That just makes me laugh cuz he was an extra in Juno as well. This time he’s supposedly a school professor. I think he’d be a hilarious teacher personally.
Other shows that I’m excited to see come back are Reaper which sadly is premiering mid-season (So I’ll have to wait :() on The CW. Also Scrubs is making the transfer to ABC mid-season for it’s last half of a season. I’ll definitely be sad to see Zach Braff go :(. Who knows though, it could come back since it doesn’t have to deal with the competition of Grey’s Anatomy. Oh if you want to look at the Fall schedule for all of the regular stations check it out here. Now I can’t wait for September ;).
