Fall 2012 TV What I am excited about

29 Aug

I can’t believe it has been a year since I was going all weak in the knees for Ringer, Revenge and Once Upon A Time.  It’s that time again, what to watch this year.  

So what am I excited about this year? Quite a bit actually, and as always the 3 episode rule applies, its rare when a pilot nails it, you have to give a new show at least three episodes to settle and give the viewer some indication of where it is headed.

So which shows get at least three episodes?

666 Park Avenue – Terry O’Quinn and Vanessa Williams star, it looks pretty campy and the premise sounds silly. Click on the title to read it. But, I will give it 3, who knows it could be the big break out of the fall. But I doubt it.

Revolution – Bill Burke and the electronic apocalypse. Interesting premise, no more power, simpler times, maybe maybe not. Created by Eric Kipke (Supernatural),  it plays on a basic fear and a simple desire, to return to a quieter time, a slower pace.  Lets see how it plays out, its either Lost or The Event.  

Vegas – Dennis Quaid and Michael Chklis star in this period drama, its sheriff vs mob in old school Vegas. Expect lots of Rat Pack references. 

Go On – Mathew Perry sitcom, he is getting over the death of his wife with the help of a support group.  We’ll see sitcoms are tricky.

Emily Owens, MD – I loved Mamie Gummer on The Good Wife, lets see how she does on her own. It looks like Ally McBeal meets Grey’s Anatomy meets Mean Girls,  but I will give it a shot.

Nashville – Connie Britton, that’s all I needed to hear and I was in.

Chicago Fire – This is all about the eye candy for me Exhibit A and B.

Arrow – And more eye candy, based on how succesful Smallville was and how pretty Tom Welling was, I am all set to watch this al season. CW knows how to bring the pretty boys to my screen.

Elementary – The BBC Sherlock re-boot airing on Masterpiece Mystery is fantastic, and Benedict Cumberbatch‘s take on Holmes is genius.  SO why do we need this version, I guess we will have to tune in to find out if we really need another “quirky” detective series. Just like lawyers before them, they seem to be all the rage lately.

Beauty and The Beast – Curiosity factor only, I wan to see if Kristin Kreuk can play anything besides Lana Lang. I doubt I will stick past three, but The CW could shock me and make this nonsense work. Note to CW, how can a beast be a beast with one huge scar, that’s not much of a beast.

Returning Favorites, Once Upon A Time, The Good Wife, Revenge, 2 Broke Girls, Bones, Smash (mid-season), Happy Endings, Hart of Dixie, Supernatural, Scandal, Big Bang, Glee, Blue Bloods.

And the biggies, my favorites, the reason I love Thursday and Friday, The Vampire Diaries and Fringe.  Dude, Elena’s a vampire and this is Fringe’s last season.  Can’t f’ing wait, its on!!!

    “It’s either Lost or The Event” – SO TRUE! Revolution could be awesome and I really want it to be; I’d love to have a show to theorize about again. I also totally agree with you about Nashville. Connie Britton can do no wrong in my eyes. I just got onto the night shift at my job at Dish, so I sadly won’t get to watch any of my shows live this fall. That’s why I’m relieved I have a Hopper to record everything for me to watch as soon as I get off work. I love coming home to a full DVR! Here’s hoping all the new shows live up to their hype.

      The Hopper sounds cool, can you really by pass commercials?
