It’s that time of year when ALL the new TV shows are coming out. It’s a good year to be a geek when it comes to TV shows.
This time for Entertainment Weekly, I’ll be recapping Selfie on ABC.
It stars Karen Gillan (Amy Pond/Nebula) and John Cho (Harold/Sulu/MILF Guy #2) and is an updated version of My Fair Lady and Pygmalion. I know that the name and premise of the show turns people off but it’s actually not that bad. Though I watched the pilot online and then rewatched it when it aired this past Tuesday. And well…they changed things which I’m not sure why because I thought that they did not help the story. But we’ll see what happens. My first recap is up and if you’re watching it too, follow my Facebook page to get links to all season (or however long this show manages to stay on) as I recap the show. I will say that I DO love John Cho and think he’s fantastic.
I would totally like to watch Gotham but as I have already have Monday nights busy, I can’t watch it live. Hopefully I can catch it on On Demand. I would also really love to watch The Flash on the CW but I haven’t even gotten around to watching Arrow yet so that will probably have to wait.
Last year I started watching Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but then I got busy on Tuesday nights and missed the second half of the season. Which is a bummer because I know there was that whole tie in with Captain America: The Winter Solider (Hail Hydra!) Therefore sadly I cannot watch new episodes until I catch up from last year. Luckily one of libraries ordered the first season on DVD so I’m on the holds list for it. I’m annoyed this isn’t on Netflix or Amazon Prime. I hope I can catch up because I DO want to watch this show as well as the Peggy Carter spin-off that is coming.
I WAS able to catch the premiere of Gracepoint on Fox last night.
I haven’t seen the original show that it’s a remake of, Broadchurch, so I can’t compare but so far I am planning on watching as much as I can. I will admit, David Tennant’s American accent was the real reason why I tuned in but the show is actually good. I am trying not to look at spoilers of the original series.
I’m still watching Doctor Who. Peter Capaldi is GREAT as the Doctor and the episodes have been pretty good so far. He’s VERY different from Matt Smith but I think that’s a good thing.
The other show I can’t wait to come on again is The Walking Dead. I’m both geeked and terrified at what is going to happen in this season. It also doesn’t help/hurt that with the news about the Ebola virus coming to America that the zombie apocalypse might very well become a real thing one day…..
So yeah. That’s what I’m watching on TV this fall. What about you?
One thought on “Fall means ALL the TV, ALL the time”
We’ve already discussed Selfie on facebook… so. Doctor Who – It took me a while to get into this season, but I’m finally there and I loved last week’s episode. Broadchurch was amazing, so I have extremely high hopes for Gracepoint, but I haven’t been able to watch it yet. Love David Tennant, so I probably wouldn’t say anything bad about it anyway 🙂 I’m with you and looking forward to The Walking Dead. I’m so surprised that they’ve been able to keep us all watching and guessing this long – what a great series!
The other show I’m really loving is Chicago Fire. I’m a huge fan of Dick Wolf (his books area amazing too) so he’s the reason I started watching it. But it’s fabulous and you never know which emotions are going to pop up week to week. I’ve literally been on the edge of my chair before watching it. The Walking Dead is the only other show that does that to me.
