the Flash.  (it’s Flashpoint paradox. Weather Wizard, Girder, Gorilla Grod and others. it’s a spinoff from ARROW and there will be cross-overs between the two on both shows. they’ve teenaged the whole Flash Universe & the pilot covers Barry Allen getting his super speed powers, even getting his flash suit, but not contained in his ring. if you like ARROW, then you’ll like the next young justice character).  CW

Supernatural.  (the show ended quite a while ago, but they keep making episodes for some reason)  CW

wed  Oct 8

olARROW.  (“my name is Oliver Queen. for 5 years, i was stranded on a hellish island..” actually just 2 years, because last season we found out you left the island after 2 years & went to Honk Kong. season 3 will feature Oliver being trained by Katana. yes, ARROW has stolen all of the League of Assassins from Batman. this show is full of drama with characters never keeping secrets and always going on drama rants, then flipping to opposite extreme and another drama rant. the show features obvious goofs each episode, but there’s superheroes, & for the most part, it’s a good series, and of course, there’s  felicity  ❤   season 3 of Arrow will feature new superheroes, nope, no longer Ted Kord / Blue Beetle, but Firestorm, Atom and possibly Wildcat. the season2 dvd (release date: Sept 16) will feature a cut scene featuring Harley Quinn, as part of A.R.G.U.S.’s Suicide Squad. ARROW & Starling City (‘Star City’ from the comics) is becoming more & more like Gotham City).  CW

The 100 - New Promotional Poster2

the 100.  (global war destroys civilization. a few thousand people escape to space and survive on a rigged space station for 100 years, but that’s not the 100 from the title. 100 teenagers were jettisoned down to earth as a test to see if the earth was again inhabitable. it’s a post apocalyptic world with mad max warriors, yep, not all life was killed in the war. the verdict: it’s interesting, but the plot doesn’t advance that quickly. also it has the typical teen drama you’ve come to expect from the CW. funniest thing ever was the two-headed deer first episode. this show is good at creating mystery & suspense, but an episode later they dilute the concept or character with normalcy & blah blah, so it is easy to lose interst in this show. the first season aired in summer, with little competition, don’t think it has the right stuff to hold up to fall television.)  CW

fri  Oct 24

Constantine_Show-e1399833122634Constantine.  (if you think you’ve seen this, you haven’t. it’s not Keanu Reeves (the constantine movie), nor is it the leaked pilot. the pilot was reshot without the female lead. this series will be closer to the comic than the movie, but slower moving unfortunately, and spoiler: Dr Fate’s helmet appears in the pilot, so more involved than just John Constantine with the poorly designed business card, this show will introduce the realm of DC comics magic, who knows how far they will go.. i saw the original pilot and it was rather boring; hoping they will amp it up for the premiere.)  NBC

GRIMM.  (well if you made it this far, might as well continue to watch a little more.. i was severely disappointed with the beginning of season 3, after episode 7, it started to pick up again. they are just running out of material & ways to keep it interesting. the whole blindly trusting adeline because she now has a baby was just BS, & big surprise she turned back into her evil self again. bored on fri nights? then yes.)  NBC

Big Bang Theory.  moves to thursdays.

ascension_detail_2560x1450_1280x725_317194819537Ascension  (6 episodes. looks cool.)  SyFy

not mentioned: Revolution (‘cuz too much swash-bucking without any pirates), Falling Skies (‘cuz family drama with an alien/sci-fi landscape & bcuz of too many poor decisions every episode; not worth watching), Defiance (also family drama & very much like Terra Nova, which was so painful to watch). Bitten (season 2 will be on SyFy in 2015. Bitten is like a bad version of the Vampire Dairies, but plot twist, it’s werewolves, instead of vampires). you don’t have to watch bad television just because it’s sci-fi; we have other choices now. your time is valuable, especially to geeks, spend it tweeting about the proper positioning of Spider-Woman’s butt or getting the high score on Destiny; life is too short to waste it on bad television.
