So apart from the releases of such games as Spore and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, I have been looking forward to this month of months for another reason;
The return of some of my most beloved television shows.
First things first. I watch a rather unhealthy (in my mind) amount of television. Not necessarily on the actual TV though; since Australian free-to-air television is not only months behind American networks in most case, I just simply cannot stand an incredibly tense situation being busted up by an ad about the latest fatty super maximum gigantic burger guaranteed to kill you if you eat more than 2 in one sitting. Oh, and the superior quality imports that they do purchase are normally slotted in at some abormal time-slot, such as 11:30pm at night.
Anywho, I watched the Gossip Girl season opener the other day, which I loved; I'm surprised at how much I enjoy GG, when I was first told about it I had my own pre-conceptions about what it would be like, and how I'd probably hate it, but I freely admit I really enjoy the show, and hope this season is as wild as the last.
As much as I enjoy GG, I think my most anticipated show return is probably the marvellous Entourage, considering how long it's been between the last episode and the shock of Medellin bombing I am simply dying to find out what's happened since, and what is up with Adrian Grenier's beard! I wonder if we'll find out what Turtle's name is.
I suppose the new season or chapter or whatever they call them of Heroes is also shaping up quite nicely, the sneaky peaks I've peaked at gave me the impression that Heroes: Villians will redeem the show after a rather lack-lustre second series.
But that's not all. A second season of the surprisingly engaging Californication, the return of our favorite doctor House, and shows like Life and Supernatural returning makes September the month of rebirth for quality TV, and with shows like The Office, 30 Rock, Lost and BSG waiting in the wings, TV is finally back to it's best. For now, anyway.
Of course, all of this will help ease the pain of a year without a full season of my beloved Doctor Who, seeing as how we only have a few specials this year before the 2010 series, and with David Tennant's future as the doctor still not secure, only time will how season 5 shapes up, after the departure of RTD and Phil Collinson.
