2011 Fall TV Preview – Episode Five

2 Broke Girls (Premieres Sept 19 @ 9:30 – CBS)
Starring: Kat Dennings, Beth Behrs

Set in New York City, two waitresses in their twenties—Max, who comes from a poor working-class family, and Caroline, who was born rich but is now down on her luck—work together at a Brooklyn restaurant, become fast friends and build their dream of one day opening a cupcake shop.

Why I’m watching: Ever since Charlie Bartlett and Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist, I’ve been a fan of Kat Dennings. She’s funny, she’s weird (and proud of it) and she can act. It’s refreshing to see her stand out among all the other wannabe actors her age. Not to mention this series was created by Sex and the City executive producer Michael Patrick King, which if nothing else, promises a little bit of sarcasm and a lot of sass.

Glee (Premieres September 20 @ 8pm – Global/Fox)
I’m less excited for the return of Glee this time around. I was rather bored with the “storyline” behind season 2 and it’s become too predictable. We all knew New Directions was not going to win Nationals. Just as they didn’t win Regionals in season 1. Prediction? They’ll win Nationals in season 3, just so they can do a proper send off for Rachel (Lea Michele) and Finn (Cory Monteith) who are now seniors at McKinley. The only hope I have for the show that I so adored in season one is Ryan Murphy’s promise to write a clearer storyline rather than fit a story around a chosen set of songs. The only character I’m truly excited to see again is of course Blaine (Darren Criss). He’s so dreamy.

Why I keep watching: My weakness is musicals. Anything set to song and lyrics has my attention.
