2009 has come and within the next few weeks we'll see the continuation of favorite shows as well as some promising new entries.  A few of these shows ended the first part of their season run several months ago so their return is much anticipated, while others took a shorter break-though some longer than others-for the holiday season.

Season 5, Episode 15
"Ronnie Chase"
January 6, 2009

30 Rock
Season 3, Episode 7
"Senor Macho Solo"

Battlestar Galactica
Season 4, Episode 11
"Sometimes a Great Notion"

The United States of Tara
Season 1, Episode 1
January 18, 2009 
*A dark comedy, starring Toni Collette, about a woman with multiple personality disorder who tries to keep it together for her family. Created by Steven Spielberg and written by Diablo Cody of Juno fame.

Season 5, Episode 1
"Because You Left"
January 21, 2009
*This one I plan on adding to my Netflix queue soon.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Season 2, Episode 14
Title Unknown
February 13, 2009

And a few moments after Sarah Connor Chronicles ends that Friday evening on FOX comes the show we've all been waiting for:

Season 1, Episode 1
Written and Directed by Joss Whedon
February 13, 2009

It's going to be a good night.  And I'm not at all thinking about how that was the date five years ago that Angel was cancelled.  Nor the fact that it's FOX.  Nor the production delays.  Nor the script rewrites.  Stopping now.

Bring on the dolls!

And the month after that, a project featuring another Whedon alumnus:

Season 1, Episode 1
March 9, 2009
Starring Nathan Fillion
*I think this was the pilot directed last year by the Associate Artistic Director at Taproot Theatre for whom I have been known to lend a writing hand a few times a year.  She showed me a picture of her and Nathan Fillion on her phone-so envious!

Season 1, Episode 1
March 9, 2009
*A modern-day soap about a
 hero who rises to become the
 king of his nation, based on the biblical story of King David.  
I wrote about this with keen interest awhile back here.
