Welcome to Season Pass, Variety.com’s blog for dishing about fall’s new scripted TV shows.
We wanted to give readers a wide range of opinions on the fall fare so eight of us spent a good chunk of our summer watching all of it. We like to complain, but it was really kind of fun.
Each of us has rated all the shows using four categories:
Love it, setting a season pass now
Worth another try
OK, but not for me
Won’t watch again
“Reaper” (below) was one show that took us all by surprise. I did not expect to like it and it ended up being one of my favorites
The shows that rated the highest (one or two thumbs up) among our group of TV junkies were: ABC’s “Pushing Daisies” (seven season passes), NBC’s “Chuck” (four season passes), the CW’s “Reaper” (six season passes), CBS’ “Big Bang Theory” (three season passes), the CW’s “Gossip Girl,” (one season pass), Fox’s “Back To You” (one season pass) and CBS’ midseason entry “Swingtown” (one season pass).
See the chart for more details.
Our opinions are meant as a guide only. We encourage you to give all the shows a try and see for yourself what shows speak to you.
We’ll be blogging after each episode to track the shows’ progress. And we’ll weigh in on topics related to the season.
Have fun and happy channel surfing!
