And so it begins (the Fall 2015 Season Thread)

The fall season officially begins tonight with a whole host of new Network shows (I get that some stuff already started on cable channels). I thought we could use this thread to talk about shows we like and dislike without going into spoilers.

Have at it.

I'm planning to watch Blindspot and Minority Report tonight (well, I can't guarantee I'll get to either tonight, but they both premiere tonight). Reviews haven't been great for either, so I don't have high hopes, but I'll at least give them a chance.

So many shows ended last season, and some of my favorites are starting later this season. I was hoping for some new goodies, however the reviews for the new shows have made me reluctant to be excited for anything. Also there's the fact there's so many new shows based from movies it has me worried that the networks have thrown in the towel on creativity.

Currently catching up on Veep (good thing too since it swept the emmy's) enjoying Narcos on Netflix, excited about Jessica Jones since I liked Daredevil. Netflix has become the new HBO.

I don't know if it is just me, but there are fewer new network shows that I am interested in this year than ever before.

For NEW shows, what are people checking out?

For me, so far, I have Muppets, Scream Queens, and Supergirl

Many of the TV critics that I follow say this is the worst slate of new network Fall TV they can ever remember. Most will agree that there aren't any obviously terrible shows. There are just a whole bunch of mediocre, not-that-inventive shows, and no standout shows.

Quantico, Supergirl, Muppets, and Minority Report are the only new network stuff that's on my radar.

I don't really have high hopes for any of them. Hopefully I'll get surprised.

I'll check out some new shows but almost everything I finished up watching last season is coming back so I am not looking to add many new shows, although I will try a few.

I will try Blindspot tonight but Mondays are my heaviest recording day (The Voice, Big Bang Theory, Gotham and Scorpion) so I am not sure I want to add anything else to Mondays. If anything gets added it will probably be Supergirl when it airs.

As usual, I'm trying out more than I actually expect to end up watching. Shows I'll give a chance to:

Blindspot
Minority Report
Life In Pieces
The Muppets
Limitless
Grandfathered
The Grinder
Heroes Reborn
The Player

That's what I do, and I expect maybe half I'll stick with more than a couple of episodes. As the TV landscape has gotten crowded and I actually have too much to watch (complicated by the start of the hockey season and baseball's postseason) a show is at least has to show promise in the pilot. If the pilot is a complete dud, I'm gone. That's the new reality for me. I'm also feeling less and less like I'm missing something if I don't watch it (despite you guys trying to talk me into watching things ).

I'm passing on those as I'm kind of burned out on Medical dramas and nothing in the previews speaks to me.

This week, I set Limitless and Minority Report to record but its 50/50 if I'll actually watch them as I didn't like the movies they are based on that much.

I'm also ambivalent about Heroes Reborn but I set it to record anyways and will most likely watch the first episode.

I'm willing to check out Scream Queens and Blindspot (for Jamie Alexander) and I'm checking out the Muppets.

I am taking a pass on The Player. The previews don't do anything for me.

I haven't seen any previews for The Player. The reviews I've read/heard say it's awful. The only reason I'm giving it a shot is because I like the lead actor from Strike Back (which is one of two reasons, along with naked Jamie Alexander, that I'm giving Blindspot a chance as well).

I don't think I have really watched one since ER went off the air. At least, not ones that weren't real documentary/reality shows.

Plus, I really like Chicago Fire and I think 'Chicago Med' is set in the same universe.

I'm only going to check out Blindspot, The Grinder, Heroes Rebort, and Supergirl. Nothing else sounds even remotely interesting.

The last medical dramas I watched were Mercy (which I liked but bombed in the ratings) and Saving Hope (which bombed faster in the ratings in the US.)

I'm passing on Chicago Fire and PD and Med because I've already done enough with the Wolfverse in terms of the Law & Order series.

Right now, I only watch "Fire". When t hey came out with "PD", I didn't watch it. Were there stories that started on 'Fire' that I never got to see resolved? Yeah.. There were. But I found those were mostly limited to a single week and didn't cause major continuity issues for me through the season.

I saw Big Bang Theory on my DVR this morning. I'm not ready for all the shows to start up again. I've only got like 45% free space on my DVR. I did not do a very good job of watching TV over the summer. I'm afraid that 45% is going to disappear quick.

We haven't added any shows this year.

I'm considering not starting Scorpion back up. It is a pretty ridiculous show.

New Girl's schtick got old too. And they kinda ended the season in such a way it could be seen as a series ender.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It is just as ridiculous as last year. You really need to shut off your brain and veg, to enjoy it.

Minority Report

That's it! That's easily the smallest number of new shows I've been interested in in a new season. Many of the shows I do watch are/have recently ending/ended with nothing worthwhile to replace them. It's almost like the networks have given up and are allowing the streaming media to take over creativity wise.

Bad news for Tivo too, although looking to become a one stop media source, a $40 streaming stick does a much better job than a $400+ Rovio on the streaming side IMO. I find myself using the AmazonTV or Roku more and more often, tivo less and less. I certainly see no reason to upgrade the older premier and HD I currently have.

I usually try to record all new network or cable scripted shows, that I may be the slightest bit interested in, but many don't last long.
Bastard executioner,limitless and Minority Report are already deleted. I think that's 3 of the 4 I recorded. Haven't watched Life in Pieces. I hope that is good, I like James Brolin and Dianne Wiest.

I'm recording just about all the new shows, as I usually do just to check them out.

The exception is The Muppets. I didn't even like The Muppets when I was a kid let alone now as an adult.

I bailed on Scream Queens and The Bastard Executioner after about 30 minutes. Hanging in there with Minority Report and Limitless so far.
