Fall 2010 TV Review

It's the end of the year and I have thinking about this year in TV.
I did a little research and here is a list of notable fall network and cable shows:

Hawaii 5-0:  Fall's TV Breakout Hit

The Whole Truth ABC Cancelled
Lone Star FOX Cancelled
Rubicon AMC Cancelled
Running Wilde FOX Cancelled
Terriers FX Cancelled
Outlaw NBC Cancelled

Blue Bloods CBS Full Season
Hawaii Five-0 CBS Full Season
Mike & Molly CBS Full Season
The Defenders CBS Full Season

Outsourced NBC Full Season
The Event NBC Full Season
The Big C Showtime Full Season
Hellcats The CW Full Season
Nikita The CW Full Season
Detroit 1-8-7 ABC Partial Pick-up
Chase NBC Partial Pick-up

Things I took from this list:
Show I'm still watching:  Nikita, didn't like it at first, but it has really grown on me after a bit.  I still think they need to make the show more fun, and less serious.  However, it is keeping up a pretty good quality for a CW show.

Most Disappointing Show That I Watched:  The Walking Dead, it started so bright at first with a great series premiere, however subsequent episodes did not live up to the promise of the premiere.

Most Surprising Pick-Up:  Outsourced, after the terrible reviews that the show received initially, I thought it would flop but surprisingly it has kept going on.

Show I'm sad I missed:  Terriers, I heard tons of good reviews and I wanted to check it out, however, I missed the first episode and then the second, and then I fell behind until I didn't bother watching.

Show I'll Miss the Most:  Rubicon, just when it started to get good it was shot down.  I suppose it was it was the show's on fault for being so slow at the beginning.
