Re: New TV Season - Fall 2013

I'm watching the Brooklyn Nine-Nine premiere.

Seems ok. Seems like the sort of show we won't know if it's good for a season or two. Parks & Rec first season sucked and now it's the best comedy on TV.

Re: New TV Season - Fall 2013

My first impression of The Blacklist:

Buh. You cast James Spader, give him Hannibal Lecter treatment, and his crime is he sold classified information? You promised me a murdering psychopath!

This show seems well produced as a procedural but if you want to convince me this guy is terrifying give him something to be afraid of in his past. And now the female protagonist is acting neurotic like the woman from Homeland.

I like this topic, I hope to get some more good shows from here!

I actually did a blog post on this subject last week. My list isn't really that long for this fall, and there's only two new shows on it, but I'm open to suggestions.

new shows:
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Almost human

returning:
How I met your mother (Season opening now downloading)
Big Bang Theory
Arrow

Just about to watch "Blacklist" though great to hear it scored just under 12 million and a whopping 3.8 in the 18-49 demo

Man, Spader really knows how to chew the scenery. He chews it so much he may get obese doing this show.

Can't wait for the series premiere of Agents of SHIELD tonight.

RE: Sleepy Hollow, I thought last night's episode was more interesting than the pilot. Abby is starting to see more of the supernatural stuff. I liked how Clancy Brown's character mentored her and is now communicating with her from beyond!

Have you seen Boston Legal? He wasn't obese then?

Re: New TV Season - Fall 2013

I don't think I'll be following Blacklist.

If they're going to copy the Hannibal/Clarys relationship they need a guy with a violent past. This guy is on the most wanted list but (According to what the audience knows so far) has never committed a violent crime.

And then there was that scene jammed the pen into the guy's neck. Seriously? This show glosses over brutality in the name of stopping terrorist attacks worse than 24. They roughed up those two guys off screen and didn't even draw attention to it.

And police vehicles with no bullet proof glass, right.

Re: New TV Season - Fall 2013

I liked Agents of the Shield.

Preposterousness is okay when the dialog is this fun and lively. And it's refreshing to see some heroes who don't hold that obnoxious Jack Bauer ends justify the means attitude.

Re: New TV Season - Fall 2013

I liked what I saw of SHIELD. My son's homework drama kind of ruined the evening, so I was pretty tired when I finally got around to watching it and I think I nodded off a couple of times.

Re: New TV Season - Fall 2013

I watched the second episode of Sleepy Hollow and I'm not sure whether to continue with it. To be honest, I found a lot of the supernatural stuff kind of cliche and cheesy. The part that interests me is seeing how a guy from the 18th century deals with the historical changes that have occurred over 250 years to the present. When he jokes about the price of the levy on baked goods, its things like that that really intrigue me.

But, I'm a history nerd, so what can you expect. Sadly it looks like that won't be a major focus of the show for much longer, so I feel ambivalent about continuing with it. The characters haven't grabbed me enough to keep me intrigued.
