    So, we are a few weeks away from the new TV season. We've seen commercials for the new shows and some of us have gone and read some reviews I would imagine. So what intrigues you?

    Me? Nothing really, and that's sad. I'll take a look at the Robin Williams show, just because he's in it, but really, nothing has really caught my eye as must watch. At least not yet.

    Also. Anyone know the best place for decent reviews? Who has made up their grid for the new season and can share?

    Nothing really stands out as a "must see" show for me.

    The one show that MAY peek my interest is the James Spader show but time will tell if it's a gem or a turkey.

    There seems to be some fun stuff on Fox with Sleepy Hollow, the one about the android cop, a silly army comedy etc.

    Funny, I had the same but opposite thought. Will avoid that one because on Robin Williams. :)

    What's a commercial? ;) Seriously, between my FFing past most ads, and the sparseness of my current TV, I don't see a lot of ads, and most of what I do see goes in one eye and out the other. I vaguely remember a Sleepy Hollow ad, which didn't seem like my type, but I might try it just because it's not a sitcom, reality, legal/medical show. I even more vaguely remember seeing other ads that I don't really remember, but when I look for them I can't find them among the countless sitcom, reality, legal/medical until I see a thread here after missing the first 20 eps, just before they go on a 6 month hiatus. Yes, I'm depressed about trying to find anything good. :p

    I'm curious about The Tomorrow People because it was a YA show back in '70s England, although I'm sure the CW will ruin the memories.

    yeah, I don't see a lot of commercials either, but occasionally a few slip past the goalie. I've had on a couple of sporting events I've watched live, so there's that.

    Anyone have a good Fall Preview link? I know it's too early for the TV Guide preview.

    SHIELD - Joss Whedon, nuff said.
    Brooklyn Nine-Nine - From the Parks&Rec guys.
    Trophy Wife - I like Malin Ackerman
    Michael J Fox Show - C'mon!
    The Goldbergs - Feels kind of Wonder Years/Malcom-ish.

    I appear to mostly be interested in the half hour comedies.

    I had an opportunity to watch both premieres of Blacklist and Almost Human at Sdcc in July.

    Blacklist with James Spader was excellent! Spader was great and it set up a good base for an ongoing series! Perhaps a bit dark but suspenseful.

    I also liked Almost Human with the actor who played Bones in Star Trek. It was interesting and IMO, worth the season pass. I liked the action adventure aspect and the interplay between the two main characters is great.

    I spoke with a bunch of folks who saw the SHIELD premiere, they *loved* it, granted it is a friendly audience but speaking from personal experience, that audience is not shy about giving the thumbs down on a dog.

    I could be wrong but I think someone reported seeing 100 and didn't have good things to say...<sigh> I could be miss remembering tho and they could have been speaking abt Tomorrow People. Regardless, I will give them both a chance.

    I can recommend giving Blacklist and Almost Human a chance tho

    I watched the set of 6 minute previews Fox aired the other night.

    Sleepy Hollow looks interesting--hope they don't drive the fish out of water (think Barnabas Collins expecting horses because he doesn't know about cars) aspect into the ground.

    The one that's a cross between Robo-Cop and the TV version of Total Recall (which was pretty good and almost completely unrelated to the movie) might not be too bad.

    The comedies look to be not my cup of tea (so I'll go outside and yell at clouds and kids on the lawn instead), with one of them promising to be a waste of a perfectly good Andre Braugher, and another perhaps not the best use that could be made of Martin Mull.

    I wouldn't say this is complete or even in a general way good but I did put something together for new shows on my forum
    http://www.friendsofcci.com/forum/index.php?topic=1812.0

    I've only got September shows done. I'll be adding Oct shows in a couple of weeks

    Thanks cool.

    I used to rely strictly on the TV Guide reviews to see is something interests me (not necessarily the review of the show, but the premise, minus the network marketing banter). These days I welcome all reviews.

    It should be easier to give more shows a go now that I have the 5 tuner Genie and a working DVR share in the house. I could theoretically record about 11 shows at one time :)
