TVx3 E020: Lightning in a Bottle

This week we’re talking about the shows that come out of nowhere each season and surprise us by becoming huge hits. We try to dissect what several of these shows have had in common but all agree that there’s no surefire formula at work. We briefly touch on some of the latest TV news and then move on to our usual primetime talk. Rae and I quickly make ourAmazing Race bets and then the focus is on shows we’ve been ignoring lately like The L Word, Heroes, Life, Bones, Grey’s Anatomy, Friday Night Lights, and Dollhouse.

Our next episode we’ll be analyzing how we feel about networks who spoil show cliffhangers and plot twists in their previews and promos. If you’d like to chime in on that topic or any other topic, give our listener line a call at 213-985-3176, leave a comment below, or email us.
