TV—On again, Off again

Programming is on again, off again, and so is my TV. I don’t watch a huge amount of television, but I always watch my favorite shows. Some are already off the air, though, and production of others has been shut down, which means the end is in sight.

I’m thrilled that Men in Trees will continue through the winter, but I’m already missing The Office. Thursday nights won’t be the same without it.

But in the midst of this, a bit of good news. The second season of October Road starts tomorrow night! Happy Thanksgiving! I don’t know if this was planned or if it’s a coincidence, but I hadn’t expected to see the new season until sometime in 2008. It will be on tomorrow night after Grey’s Anatomy, then move to what will be its regular timeslot on Monday nights at 10 pm.

I loved the first season of this show because it has all the story elements I love—family, friends, community, romance, and wonderful characters. If you missed the first season you can catch it this Saturday on SOAPNET because they’re having an October Road season one marathon! Six back-to-back episodes! Hope you have a chance to tune in.

I've never seen OCTOBER ROAD. I usually watch MURDER BY THE BOOK on Court TV but I plan to record it and try OCTOBER ROAD.

I hope you enjoy OCTOBER ROAD, Ellen. It reminds me of the books I love to read, especially Harlequin American Romances. Everyday people hoping to find love and happiness, even though they have obstacles to overcome.

I've never seen MURDER BY THE BOOK, but I love murder mysteries. And this season's line-up features several of my favorite authors. Thanks for recommending it!
