Cane: Series Premiere & Video Clip

CANE, a newbie in the CBS fall lineup is off to a good, if slow, start. The series debut tonight wasn't above expectation, but CANE promises to add some much needed color to the Fall Season.

The acting in tonight's episode wasn't terrifically riveting and some of the lines were underdeveloped -- but the Spanglish-style-soap served up a refreshing "ethnicity" to the dominating "white" population of shows this Fall -- and it did so with a lot of twists and turns.

Following the premiere, we previewed a disturbing quantity of clips from future-episodes, but like with any freshman series, garnering new viewers is the flesh and bones of Television. Watch it here:

Cane plays Tuesdays 9 p.m. Central on CBS (Sunflower Broadband channel 13).

My mom said that they're making Cubans look like thugs, but I see the homage ot Spanish telenovelas here, and I figure, if there wasn't drama, there wouldn't be a show. So it wasn't the "thuggishness" that bothered me... I'm just not sure about it. I'll keep watching, though... for now...

And as I told mom, after last night's show about rich, corrupt Cubans, tonight we get to watch a show about rich corrupt white people. Good times!

Yes: Heroes a bit flat for a season premier.

I will definitely keep tabs on your blogspot: I have a feeling we'll have a lot to talk about as I also watch too much television.

You a fan of Bones? The season premier presents a whole illuminati (and cannibalistic) conspiracy plot. Which always cracks me up. I'm looking forward to this season a lot.

I watched a little of Cane and it didn't grab me. But I know Beth is interested in how they're going to portray Cuban(s)/culture in the states. I'm keen to hear her first impressions.
