    Lost never "lost" me; I'm still rewatching my dvd set whenever the mood strikes. I haven't yet seen the Revolution pilot and will check my On Demand to see if it's there, but my concern would be in they put storytelling behind violence and special effects. It's J. J. Abrams, which is enough for me to give it a chance, and I hope Fox also gives it a chance.

    Oops, sorry for the error. Revolution is, of course, on NBC, not Fox. What does bother me as I rechecked the schedule is that it airs opposite both Castle and Hawaii Five-0, so I'm going to have to figure out how to catch all three.

    Different strokes, I guess. If I need a schematic to keep track of what's going on with a show (or if, God forbid, I miss an episode), then I'm done. I got bored with Lost by season 3.

    I'm hearing good things about Arrow. I'm looking forward to some eye candy, including John Barrowman!

    Ok, is Arrow a superhero? The name sounds kind of superhero-y but I guess I only know the main ones (Spiderman et al) so I don't know if he is one of the pantheon?
    Revolution looks interesting.

    I watched The New Normal tonight, simply because Andrew Rannells is in it; I loved him in The Book of Mormon and I wanted to see what he left Broadway for. It seemed like a spin-off of Modern Family, with Ellen Barkin playing the same bitchy real estate agent she did on that show and another, wise beyond her years, young girl with glasses. That's not to say I won't watch it--I probably will in the same half-attention way I watch Modern Family.

    I've been back and forth on watching The Mindy Project; I like her, and I want to still like her, but the previews look terrible.

    I like her too, but the first episode was not great. I'm going to give it a chance though. I was pretty unsure about New Girl early on and ended up loving it.

    It's the Green Arrow. I believe he is a real comic book superhero (Justice League?) but one who is a real human person without any actual superpowers. If you watched Smallville at all, there was significant use of the Green Arrow character. I loved Justin Hartley as the Green Arrow on SV but after seeing the trailers for the new show will definitely be giving it a chance because it looks to be darker/grittier and of course, as Critical mentioned, the eye candy

    I watched the pilot episode of Revolution last night On Demand and quite liked it. The pilot drew me in and I think it shows promise. I hadn't realized that Giancarlo Espositp was one of the stars, which for me is a definite plus.

    It had a definite J.J. Abrams feel to is. Laughingly, I found myself wondering at the beginning of the show if

    Saw The New Normal On Demand yesterday. Nice premise but where does it go. As for housewife NeNe her scenes felt a bit forced as we all know she is not a "real" actress she is a "reality" actress.
