I've been recording several of the midseason shows on my DVR - Alcatraz, The River, Terra Nova. But I didn't watch more than one or two of any of the shows - they just failed to grab me in any real way like some other serialized shows such as Lost or 24.
And now that the shows have come to a close, it appears I haven't missed much. Terra Nova - already cancelled. The River - not likely to be renewed. Alcatraz - apparently not making much of an impact.
Were there any new shows this year worth keeping up with? Is it really this hard to make even one good television show?
It's kind of sad that the newest show I've been interested in is Storage Wars.
