Re: New TV Season - Fall 2013

I just saw Sleepy Hollow, which had an OK start. The premise looks good enough to keep me interested in the next episode (time travel, the Four Horsemen). My only gripe is that there's hardly any chemistry between the two main characters - Ichabod Crane and Abbie Mills (Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie, respectively). But this was only the first episode; it's too soon to tell what direction the show is going.

Nice to see John Cho.

I like what I've seen so far. It is really nice to see so many networks giving sci-fi/fantasy genre shows a run again. Seemed like a long stretch where everything was cop, law, or medical shows. That or 24.

I was missing the 90s when TNG was king and you had the x files, seaquest, space:above and beyond, earth 2, Babylon 5, mantis, the flash, viper, and many more syndicated and lower budget shows on tv.

Re: New TV Season - Fall 2013

Only returning shows I'm interested in:

Parks & Recreation
Survivor
Amazing Race
Whatever premium network shows have fall premieres this year

New shows:

I'm open minded. Want to hear word of mouth and critic reviews first. I'm not going to camp out on premiere week and watch every interesting show. Blacklist looks like it's going to be another one of those quality episodic procedurals like Person of Interest. I'll check it out.

Plenty of shows have actors I'm interested in but I could care less if they don't have quality writing, and you can't tell quality writing from the promos.

Re: New TV Season - Fall 2013

A couple of other shows that I like are currently on hiatus: Being Human on SyFy and MTV's Teen Wolf, which just wrapped up its third season.

Actually, there is one other series I like: SyFy's Defiance, which viewers won't get to see until June of next year.

I saw Brooklyn 99, and I also thought it was funny too (also surprised abot that). I haven't really followed The Office, but doesn't it kinda have that vibe? (I..e people missing the Office can enjoy this show).

Interesting to see how it lasts...but the seemed to set it up pretty good for the season

Re: New TV Season - Fall 2013

New Shows that I'll be trying out:

Sleepy Hollow (already watched the premiere, looks like it has potential)
Once Upon a Time in Wonderland
Hostages (not sure about this one)
Lucky 7
Super Fun Night (doesn't look great but I'll give it a chance)
Tomorrow People
Michael J. Fox Show

This is actually a shorter list than usual. Normally I try out most of the new shows, but this year there were a lot of really bad looking comedies and premises that I just have no interest in.

I would list the returning shows but that would take forever. I watch a lot of TV!

I am also looking forward to the new season of American Horror Story. I really liked the first season's storyline, did not like the second season's at all and stopped watching after about 4 episodes, and the new story looks intriguing.

Brooklyn 99 was created by Mike Schur, who was an Executive Producer (and played Mose on screen) on The Office, so I think that's a pretty reasonable observation.

He also created Parks and Rec, and anything even remotely like that show is welcome.
