Up All Night & Free Agents | “Pilots”

Two of NBC’s new comedies, Up All Night and Free Agents, premiered Wednesday night in a special post-America’s Got Talent time slot (a move that seemed to benefit the former more than the latter). It’s been a couple days at this point, but I have some quick thoughts on each after the jump.

Sons of Anarchy | “Booster”

It’s getting late, but I wanted to get some quick thoughts up on last night’s Sons of Anarchy before it got away from me. Those thoughts, after the jump.

Fall TV Preview | 5 Most Anticipated Returning Shows

Yesterday evening, I posted my list of the five new shows I’m most anticipating this fall. The caveat there was that I don’t necessarily think the shows I’m anticipating are the best of the new crop, but, rather, that they’re the ones I’m most looking forward to watching to see how they play out.

In terms of returning shows, though, the five I’m most anticipating are five of my favorite shows on TV. There are no instances of “I’m uncertain about this, and want to see if it succeeds or fails” (well, with maybe one exception). No, these five have all earned a spot in the top tier of my viewing schedule, and I simply can’t wait to have them back on my screen. My list after the jump:

Fall TV Preview | 5 Most Anticipated New Shows

The fall TV season officially kicks off tonight — with a new season of Parenthood on NBC and the return of 90210 and Sarah Michelle Gellar (in Ringer) on The CW — so I’m just in time to list off the five new shows I’m most anticipating (my list of returning shows will be posted tomorrow).

Buzz on the new crop isn’t particularly positive (in fact, this season might be generating the least excitement in recent memory), so my “anticipating” shows here does not necessarily mean I think they will be the best; rather, these five series, even if they turn out to be terrible, are the ones I’m most excited to watch, due to intriguing premises, the caliber of the cast or behind-the-scenes production team, or what have you. My list after the jump:

Entourage | “The End”

The series finale of Entourage aired last night, and I have a review after the jump.

Sons of Anarchy | Catch-Up / “Out”

In just the past few weeks, I went from prospect to full club member by catching up with Sons of Anarchy from the very beginning — just in time for the season four premiere last night. I have some thoughts on the series so far and, more specifically, on “Out” after the jump.

BP on TV is back!

Hi folks!

After an extended summer hiatus, BP on TV is back, just in time for the fall TV season. I graduated from Tufts last May, but have returned for a master’s program in educational studies. While a more intense workload for school may not make for the best circumstances to restart the blog, I’ve missed writing and sharing my thoughts about all the shows I watch. I don’t plan to churn out new content daily, but I hope to have a few shows I’ll recap weekly, plus some more that I’ll check in on periodically if something of note happens.

If anyone has anything in particular they’d like to see on here, feel free to leave suggestions in the comments to this post. Otherwise, just read and enjoy!
