Fall TV


My fall TV viewing has already begun. NBC got the excellent Grimm off to an early start back on August 13. Sophomore years always frighten me as they can be quite the letdown (I’m looking at you Falling Skies) but thus far Grimm Season 2 has proven as darkly magical as Season 1. It’s on a brief break until September 28th but this show is on my must record/watch list for the year.

Not in any way in second place is Major Crimes. This spin off of The Closer has proven to be almost as good as the original. While I don’t like the new twist re making deals and sentencing, I love just about everything else about it. I especially appreciate the character of Rusty. It would have been easy to have Raydor in a romantic relationship that matched Brenda’s but this adds a refreshing twist.

On my eagerly awaiting list are Season 2 of Once Upon A Time and the next season of Being Human. Being Human has amazed me with outstanding story lines and great acting. As for Once Upon A Time the charming tale of story book characters living in Storybrooke, Maine had me completely entranced last year. The brilliant Robert Carlyle should win an Emmy for his work, he is that good as Rumplestilskin. Both series ended with big cliff hangers and I can’t wait to see what the writers have come up with.

Family viewing means Person of Interest and Psyche at our house. Psyche is getting zanier and more out there every year but that’s OK. I’m still loving it. It ended on a major cliff hanger last season and I am curious to see which direction they go with. It has some show changing potential but I think the producers will play it safe. Person of Interest also ended on a cliff hanger but I already know which way they are going with that. The only question will be how.

Revolution on NBC looks like the best thing coming out this fall. In Revolution, our power driven world loses, well, power. From batteries to nuclear reactors, everything shuts down. The world becomes much, much smaller breaking down into territories, many of them run by warlords. At the heart of the series is the Matheson family, who possess a device that is crucial to learning how the power went out and which just may have the potential to reverse whatever caused it. Cool! Can’t wait to see the sword wielding Billy Burke.

So those are my shows for the upcoming season. What are yours?

    You know I only watched The Closer this summer and then switched to Major Crimes. I don’t even know what is out there. And honestly didn’t realize it was the new season.

    I need to find out what new shows are being introduced.

    I actually just watched the first episode of Revolution last night online even though the premiere isn’t until 9/17. And it seems sort of weird that while watching it that after each commercial, there would be a mini-ad for the premiere at the bottom of the screen for 15-30 seconds. Like, seriously, I’m watching the show it’s advertising right now!!!!

    I’m looking forward to the return of Revenge.

    I love Grimm and Once Upon a Time as well. I also love (love, love) American Horror Story.

    This fall I’ll try Revolution to see if that catches my attention. That Sherlock Holmes remake with Jonny Lee Miller might also be interesting. I haven’t really made a decision on anything else yet.

    ABC’s Last Resort with Andre Braugher (love him) and Robert Patrick – nuclear sub attacked by their own country and they become outlaws.

    Revolution because of it’s end of the world kind of feel – Terranova from last year was a show I wished they kept going but it’s gone and I’m hoping Revolution lasts longer.

    The Walking Dead – just caught up on Season 2 last week and am ready for the new season.

    Dexter comes back on Sept 30 – killer season finale last year and they were going to make this the last season but they were asked to another season – I hope it works.

    Another show called Mindy I think – comedy that looks good.

    I’m always excited when the TV season gets up and going again – hopefully there will be great shows.
