FALL TV 2015 what to watch what to avoid..
Aug 23 Sun
Fear The Walking Dead (AMC)
YES! WATCH! spinoff of ‘The Walking Dead,’ also by Robert Kirkman. ‘Fear..’ takes place in Los Angeles and is at the onset of the zombie, I mean, Walker, Apocalypse, during the time that Rick (‘The Walking Dead’ pilot episode) is in a coma. We’ll get to see the spread of the disease and how hospitals, the police and the military try to deal with it. The Walkers will be “fresh,” not decomposing, and not always recognizable as Dead. People will also not know what is going on or how to kill a Walker. ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ promises a different perspective and will be a scary, thrilling ride.
Aug 25 Tues
From Dusk Til Dawn (El Rey Network)
SKIP! AVOID!! Burn your eyes. This show is a joke. Season 1 had Don Johnson who was great, but the best parts of the series were when the actors mimicked scenes from the movie. Beyond that, it was just really, REALLY bad. After episode 6, they renewed it for season 2. Why? Because Robert Rodriguez created the El Rey Network. after episode 6, the plot stopped culminating towards the climactic end and was really just filler so they could make a season 2. The movie itself was not that great of a movie. Everyone agrees the best part of the movie was the crime spree of George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino, before they made it mexico. They tried really hard with this series, but the last few episodes are laughable, AND now there’s another whole season..ugh.
Sept 9 Wed
The League (FXX) watch. even non-football fans find it hilarious.
Sept 11 Fri
Continuum (SyFy). watch. if you got hooked in the first 2 seasons, season 4 will offer more of the same.
Z Nation (SyFy). Nope. Skip this one. How did this get renewed? oh right, from the network that brought us Sharknado. If Z Nation was cheesy on purpose, I would watch it, but it’s trying too hard to be a real show. Attn SyFy, make it hilarious and people will watch, oh right, that’s a different show, called, ‘Ash vs The Evil Dead.’
Sept 19 Sat
Dr Who (BBC America). Yes! Watch, if you are a Whovian.
Sept 21 Mon
Gotham (Fox). YES! WATCH! more villains, more Nygma, more Joker and definitely more Cobblepot..
The Big Bang Theory (CBS). YES! WATCH!
Minority Report (Fox). watch. maybe. (may not make it to season 2) It’s really boring. It takes place after the movie “Minority Report,’ where Pre-Crime has been abolished. One of the psychic twins teams up with a cop and together they try to stop crime before they are committed. It is very similar to iZombie and is yet another cop show with little sci-fi ..
Sept 22 Tues
Limitless (CBS). watch maybe. (just like the movie. watch if nothing else is on)
The Muppets (ABC). watch maybe. (the last Muppets reboot on television, ‘Muppets Tonight’ was a disaster. this new one will be ok, but nothing will ever bring back the magic of Jim Henson).
Sept 24 Thur
Heroes Rebored (NBC). skip. just like The Mutant Registration Act from the X-Men comics and a little like The 4400. NBC has not shown me ‘Heroes Reborn’ is any different then the last season of ‘Heroes;’ I am already disappointed before it has even begun. You can watch ‘Heroes: Dark Matter’ found footage web series to see what I mean. If you’ve never forgiven them for the final season of ‘Heroes,’ skip this one, there are plenty more superhero shows airing this fall. If you really, REALLY loved ALL seasons of ‘Heroes,’ be honest, then go ahead, get sucked in and watch, but don’t blame me when there are too many shows to watch..
Sept 27 Sun
Once Upon a Time (ABC). some people really love this show. for me, the idea is just like the Vertigo comic book ‘Fables’ and too Disney to watch, but if that’s your thing, go for it.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC). Yes! Watch! Agent Coulson! Have you been eating your fish oils? The Inhumans are coming..
Oct 1 Thur
Sleepy Hollow (Fox). watch, only if you have watched all the previous seasons and somehow are still hooked.
Oct 6 Tues
The Flash (CW). YES! WATCH! Barry destroyed the timeline, Who is speedster Wally West? Catelyn becomes Killer Frost and everything is different..
iZombie (CW). YES! WATCH! “The universe of the mystical gets a little larger,” that may mean vampires or mummies, but it does mean “wereterriers,” not yet anyway. The iZombie comic universe has a huge array of mythical creatures, zombies are just one of them. will Gwen ever show in the series?. eat brains, solve crimes. Liv has made being a zombie adorable.
Oct 7 Wed
Arrow (CW). watch. Season 3 was difficult and many viewers just stopped watching. There are more Batman villains promised in season 4, like Anarky, and many crossovers will happen with ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ and ‘The Flash.’
Supernatural (CW). they just keep making episodes.. actually, seasons 1 thru 5 were great. skip season 6 and most of 7, season 8 is better (apparently) and I have no idea about seasons 9 and 10.. BREAKING: Eric Kripke, the creator of Supernatural has signed with Sony, who is launching their version of Netflix original shows on the Playstation Network (yes, that means you watch original tv shows on your game console, like last season’s ‘Powers.’). I can only assume this is the last season of Supernatural, hope it’s the best season yet.
Oct 8 Thur
The Vampire Diaries (CW)
The Originals (CW). Watch if you love The Vampire Diaries.
Oct 11 Sun
The Walking Dead (AMC). YES! WATCH!
Oct 26 Mon
Supergirl (CBS). YES, Watch! see full review here.
Oct 30 Fri
Grimm (NBC). watch, only if you have watched all the previous seasons and somehow are still hooked.
Oct 31 Sat
Ash vs The Evil Dead (Starz). YES! WATCH! for the love of “Groovy” Bruce Campbell. a much needed zombie comedy.
Jessica Jones Jessica Jones (Netflix) Nov 20 2015. YES! WATCH. ‘Jessica Jones,’ starring Krysten Ritter, is the second Netflix series set in Hell’s Kitchen, of the Daredevil universe, leading up to ‘The Defenders,’ which includes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. In ‘AKA Jessica Jones,’ Jessica will not use her superpowers (at first) and will be trying to fit in as a private detective.
