Since my last post, I've picked up some shows and dropped some. An update:
Once Upon a Time (ABC)
Pan Am (ABC)
Being Human (Syfy)
There has only been one episode of Smash, sure, but the writing very much impressed me. Which is to say, the dialogue wasn't very good, but the pace of the episode, the characters, and the premise were all quite good, and I will watch again.
And there's more where that came from.
