Life UneXpected
(Monday 18th)

I loved Gilmore Girls so this looks promising.

He takes Lux to meet her Mother. Then a judge grants temporary joint custody to Baze and Cate and try to give Lux a loving home that she has longed for

Spartacus
(Friday 22nd)

New 300-esque Series that promises plenty of graphic violence, nudity and sex. Already renewed for a 2nd season in 2011.

It will among others star Lucy Lawless, famous from Xena – Warrior princess, nudit is said to have forced Lawless to hit the gym. “I do have to work out,” she said. “Being naked on-screen is no fun.”

Survivors
(Friday 22nd)

New Series built on one with the same name from the 70s. I remember seeing it then. I am afraid I might spoil some fond memories if i watch this.

Set in the present day, this BBC drama follows the survivors of a devastating virus which has killed most of the world’s population.

From TV.com:
