Question of the Week

What new or returning fall TV show are you most excited about?

Amelia Varni, Sophomore, Central Catholic High School

"I am a very busy girl, but I always find the time to watch my favorite TV shows, even if it means that I have to record them and watch them later than everyone else. This season, I am most exited about 'The Office' returning to NBC. I cannot wait to see if Jim and Pam get back together and I know I will crack up at whatever crazy thing Michael and Dwight do next. I am also excited about 'Gossip Girl' on The CW. My friends and I have read all the 'Gossip Girl' books and we cannot wait to watch the new television series together!"

Sasha Riddle, Junior, Beyer High School

"I am definitely most excited about the return of 'Grey's Anatomy.' It is pretty much the only show I actually stay up to date with, and considering it's been a little while since I have seen McDreamy, it makes me even more anxious to watch the première!"

Victoria Pardini, Sophomore, Modesto High School

"This question is honestly a no-brainer for me. All of last year, I became completely obsessed with 'Heroes.' Though I started watching it because it features an actor I really enjoy, the plot twists, story lines and smart writing are what continuously keep me hooked. It's the first show that has gotten me to yell out at the television in shock of new developments, as eccentric as it sounds."

Michelle Vecchio, Senior, Whitmore Charter High School

"As it turns out, I'm not really excited about any fall TV show this season. Last year, I had my regular weekly must-sees, 'House' and, yes, sadly, 'Grey's Anatomy.' This year, however, I really don't have time to watch TV on school nights, and quite frankly, I think I've reached my hospital drama quota. My fall will be a little less drama-filled, to be sure, but you can bet when 'Monk' and 'Psych' come back to USA in January, I'll be taking advantage of my TiVo capabilities."

Tyler Robertson, Sophomore, Modesto High School

"If there is one show that I am willing to delay doing homework for, it would have to be 'The Unit' because of the gritty plot and great cast. This is one of the more hard-hitting shows, which I enjoy a lot because it adds a dimension of realism to it that completely fictitious shows can't match. Even though the characters are fictitious, the story is quite similar to the book (the series is based on, 'Inside Delta Force'), which is an account by Eric Haney about his service in Delta. With an intriguing plot that constantly changes dependent on the situation, and a dynamic set of actors, it really brings Delta to life for those who would never see it any other way. And if the last season was any indicator, this next one will be great."
