Along with the new shows cluttering my schedule and taking away time well spent on school work, writing, and video games there are a few shows that I will always stay true to. There are also a few shows that I just can’t admit to anyone else that I watch. For years my two cats, Shu-Shu and Dushka, were the only living creatures in this world who knew of my “Why in the heck would you watch that?” list. Now, I share that list with you. Consider yourself extremely lucky. Shows I love dearly Supernatural Premieres: Oct. 7th I honestly STILL don’t remember what season the show is in. What I do remember was how bad ass the season finale was! I’m curious on what’s going to happen with Dean and how Sam is going to react to his transformation. Every time I think that the show can’t go on another season, it surprises me. Sons of Anarchy Premieres: Sept 9th I’m a sad kitty knowing that this is the finale season of SOA. As I mentioned in my previous Fall TV Schedule post, I started watching the show when it was in its third season. I still think it’s one of the best shows on T.V. (along with Game of Thrones.) Jax is one hell of a character. Arrow Premieres: Oct. 8th This show had its ups and downs for me. I wasn’t a fan of the second season. In fact I absolutely hated it. At least it’s no Smallville. That show gave me migraines. Last time I posted about Arrow, I was curious if the developers were going to include Speedy and they did! I just hope that Arrow doesn’t go down the same annoying path as Smallville did. So far I don’t think it will. It took eleven seasons for Clark to fly. At least in Arrow, Oliver is already doing what he does best. Grimm Premieres: Oct 24th What can I say about this show? It’s very “Buffy” like in terms of characterization and plots and I was and still am a huge Buffy fan. Last season left us with Nick losing his Grimm abilities. We were also introduced to another female Grimm (besides Nick’s mother) who goes by the name Trouble. The Originals Premieres: Oct. 6th Yes, this is a vampire show which caters to the teenage demographic. I can attest to that. What keeps me watching is the fact that this show is entirely different from Vampire Diaries. There is a little love triangle underneath all the whoopla but the main focus seems to be on who gets to control the city of New Orleans. Will it be the vampires, werewolves, or humans? Not only is there violence (and heart ripping) but the show also deals with characters and their interaction with the modern world. Personally, I’m a fan of Elijah and I don’t like the fact that Rebekah is no longer on the show. Regardless, The Originals is a lot better than The Vampire Diaries. Maybe it’s CW’s way of apologizing to the viewers who had to sit through countless seasons of dopplegangers and the Salvatore Brothers’ ever growing and annoying affection for lame Elena. American Horror Story: Freak Show Premieres: FX is starting to become my favorite station on cable. Not only do they have Sons of Anarchy and The Strain, they also show American Horror Story (and recently every episode of the Simpsons that were created.) I still think the first season of American Horror Story was the best. I didn’t like the second season (Asylum) but I loved the third season (Coven.) Just by watching the previews for this upcoming season, I already know that I’m going to enjoy it immensely. The Strain Ahh, there’s something about a picture involving a worm slithering through the white part of an eye which catches my interest. Actually, the picture makes me itch and squirm. I want to rub the crap out of my eye until it bleeds…and I like it. I like it a lot! The Strain is different from the regular ol’ vampire tales you’ve probably seen on television. These vampires remind me more of zombies. Once these icky looking white worms invade the bodies of their victims, their transformation is almost instant. They go after the ones they love. They can die from either being beheaded or burned by artificial light or sunlight. A long, thick looking thingamagig shoots from their mouth, latching itself onto the necks of others and in turn, transforming them into these creatures as well. Spooky. Of course there is a Master (who looks reeeeaaallly creepy) and there is a hunter (a Jewish man who survived the Holocaust.) My only problem with the show is how long it’s taking for certain plots to come to fruition. I keep wanting more. Maybe that’s a good sign. Vikings Premieres: Sometime next year Okay, so this show doesn’t start up again this fall season. It’s starting sometime next year. Last season was brutal, unforgiving, and interesting. The Vikings are raiding what we now know as the country of Britain. Along with their raids, they’re fighting among themselves to establish hierarchy. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this show, especially if you’re a fan of anything history, like I am. Plus the into theme in the show’s intro is beautiful and relaxing on the ears. Game of Thrones Premieres: Sometime next year I have no words to describe how EPIC this show is. If you haven’t heard by now, you must not be paying attention to epic shows! I’ve never read the books. Someday I’ll get around to it. But for now I’ll take comfort in knowing that I can watch my favorite characters on television participating in this game for power, wealth, and the throne. Shows I have a hard time keeping up with and/or watching Boardwalk Empire Premieres: Sept 7th I almost want to cry. I’ve stayed true to Boardwalk Empire. I use to love the show. My desire to watch the show died when Jimmy, my favorite character, was killed off. I guess I should be thankful that it’s currently in its final season. I don’t think it could go on for much longer. Sleepy Hallow Premieres: Sept. 22nd The first season started out okay but to me everything went down hill. How long will they fight these four Horsemen of the Apocalypse? I keep looking beyond what’s happening, wondering if this plot can resolve itself or if the plot was never meant to resolve. I love Ichabod but that’s really about it. I just…I just can’t. The Blacklist Premieres: Sept. 22nd I really want to continue to like show. It’s got to the point that I’m forcing myself to watch it and that is the wrong thing I should do. Spader is a fantastic actor and I love his work. However, I feel myself falling out of love with this show. Maybe it’s not for me anymore. Law and Order: SVU Premieres: Sept 24th I’m trying to think of something snarky to describe how I feel about Law and Order in general. I don’t know how many times they can go the child abuse route. It gets tiresome. I guess the show will never run out of ideas as long as humans are out there in the world, doing something stupid and irrational. I miss Stabler. Bones Premieres: Sept. 25th Bones was a hit and miss for me. I watched the show religiously during the first three seasons. Fourth season I missed a show here and there and by the fifth season…well, did I watch the fifth season? Oh, I heard they killed off Sweets. Shame. Shows I don’t won’t admit to watching Vampire Diaries Premieres: Oct 1st Shhhh. Don’t tell anyone. Bitten Premieres: Sometime next year?? Sharknado anyone? Just kidding. I watched the first episode of Bitten on Netflix. I found myself skimming through some of the episodes while others had my full attention. This show is based on the Women of the Otherworld novels by #1 NY Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong. I’ve never read the books nor have I heard of them but this show has peaked my interest. The first season was decent and I will continue watching. I still want to watch Sharknado. Dominion Premieres: Sometime next year?? Like Bitten, Dominion is another Syfy television show. Angels came down to heaven and instead of being the sweet little figures we associate with everything good, they basically create hell on earth. With humans being decimated, they’ve created refuge in enclosed towns to fight off the angel’s threat. One human is the chosen one who will bring something good to mankind. I haven’t figured out what that “good” actually is. Pretty much you have the chosen one theme being played again like a broken record. In this case the creators decided to incorporate angels and different types of angels into the fray. I haven’t seen what I would consider to be a “demon” yet. Teen Wolf Premieres: Sometimes next year ??? Allison is dead replaced by a Kistune. The twins are no longer on the show. Isaac left the show to go to The Originals. Another cast member left the show and is now playing Speedy on Arrow. Kate somehow survived a werewolf’s claws ripping into her neck so now she’s a werewolf (I didn’t even know if she is one.) There’s a fox on the show. There’s no explanation as to how Kate was able to control these huge, big walking Goliath looking warriors that seemed to have no weaknesses until *gasp* the last episode of the season. I don’t know where this show is headed. I NEVER knew where the show was headed. Questions aren’t answered. Things are left in the wind. What the hell Teen Wolf?!? So there you have it. These are the shows I love and shows that…well, I don’t want to admit that I do or have watched. So what shows do you find yourself addicted to? What shows will you refuse to admit that you have watched until your last dying breath?
I had an entry like this similar to the one I posed on my now closed blogspot page. Just when I gave up on watching television, the arrival of a few new shows this season peaked my interest. It’s not like my schedule is already booked. Don’t believe me? Well, this is what my schedule looks like. Supernatural Season Premiere: October 8th, 2013, Tuesdays I honestly don’t remember what season the show is in. The season finale showed angels falling from heaven and Sam’s failed attempt on Crowley. Kept me on the edge of my seat! This is one show that I rarely miss. Vampire Diaries Season Premiere: October 3rd, 2013, Thursdays I have to admit. I was getting tired of evil b*tch Elena so I was somewhat happy to see her return. For me, the episodes have its ups and downs. Maybe because I still don’t understand the fascination with vampires and high school. Oh well, I’ll still tune in and watch this season. However, with the Originals airing and my love for Klaus . . . Sons of Anarchy Season Premiere: September 10th, Tuesdays http://www.fxnetworks.com/soa No supernatural, high school drama here. Just a good old fashioned biker gang creating mischievous. Okay, well that’s a weak synopsis of the show. I started watching SOA when it was in it’s third season. I spent an entire week catching up on Netflix. This show is one of the best shows on TV hands down (along with Game of Thrones.) Last season finale, Tara was being arrested and hauled away by the cops and Clay was going to jail. I think this season is going to be too crazy to not miss. Plus I love Juice! Boardwalk Empire Season Premiere: September 8th 2013, Sundays There’s something about HBO shows that keep me entertained for a very long time. I watch Game of Thrones early in the year, TruBlood in the summer, and I finish it off with Boardwalk Empire in the fall. But this year I might stop doing something different. I might have to stop watching the show. The first few seasons were awesome and fantastic. I really like Steve Buscemi’s character, Lucky, and how he struggles to keep his spot as the most important and respected person in his area. But the show has started to slow down for me and this started with the death of Jimmy. Afterwards I honestly didn’t care about much about the other characters and what they were up to and how important they were to the story. Depending on how this season goes, if it doesn’t pick up anytime soon I might have to drop the show. Being Human Season Premiere: 2014 http://www.syfy.com/beinghuman Okay, so I don’t REALLY have to worry about this show until then, but I just wanted to say that UK Version > US Version hands down. Still the US version is a pretty good show. Arrow Season Premiere: October 9th 2013, Wednesdays http://www.cwtv.com/shows/arrow I love comic books. I hate when movies/shows don’t stick to comic books, but I understand how troublesome that could be for production. I watched Smallville until I couldn’t take it anymore, praying to the CW gods to end the show. They finally listened in, what- season 11 or something? I don’t remember. The only thing I do remember is that the show went on for too damn long and Lana annoyed the heck out of me. I hope Arrow doesn’t go down that path. So far it’s pretty entertaining. I wonder if we’re going to see Arrow’s sidekick, Speedy? The only thing that gets to me is Oliver Queen’s sister. Oh, and also how most of the characters talk in whispers. Other than that, it’s a great show with a plot that well . . . sometimes makes you scratch your head and think “What in the heck is going on?” Vikings Season Premiere: ??? http://www.history.com/shows/vikings All I know is that there will be a season 2, according to the History Channel. I saw the season two sneak peek vid and it looked like everything I expected season two to be. It shows Ragnar standing with a group of men across from his brother, Rollo, who also has his own group of men. The two groups charge at each other and a bloody fight ensues. I’m also interested in the Vikings’ conquest to England and how that’ll play out. I HIGHLY recommend this show. Grimm Season Premiere: October 25th, Fridays http://www.nbc.com/grimm/ Nick is a descended from a long line of Grimms, those who have the ability to see creatures disguised as humans. I like the show’s premise and the characters are very interesting, including the Wesen (creatures.) Last season showed Nick being captured and contained in a box to be shipped to somewhere unknown. Whew. I think that about covers it. So there you have it. The MAIN shows I currently watch in the Fall. Yes, only MAIN shows. Now, on top of that, these are the new shows I’m looking forward to this fall season. Originals Season Premiere: October 3rd 2013 The season premieres right after The Vampire Diaries’ season premiere. Go figure. Dracula Bringing it back to basics with no high school teen drama involved. I can’t wait. Sleepy Hollow Season Premiere: September 16th Set in a modern city with a modern day Ichabod Crane. No wonder I can’t get anything done.
The new trailer for this Season 6 of TruBlood was just released! This season should be good! Oh my God. My T.V. schedule is hectic, even during the summer. SpringGame of ThronesBates MotelVikings SummerTruBloodTeenWolf Fall/ WinterSons of AnarchyBoardwalk EmpireVampire DiariesSupernaturalBeing HumanArrowGrimm Oh I know I’m missing a few shows. Actually, I hope I’m not missing any shows.
I’m delighted to see that one of my favorite T.V. shows on at the moment is back.GrimmWatching last night’s episode made me realize one thing. I’m tired of the “Juliette spell” story line. I want that story line to end so badly. I think it’s taking away from the main purpose of the show; Grimm taking down big bad baddies.However, I’m thrilled of the show’s return. Just to give a brief explanation of the show, Grimm is about a detective, Nick Burkhardt, who discovers that he’s a Grimm, a person descended from those who try to keep a certain balance between creatures (Wesens) that no other human can see, and humans themselves. He’s married to Juliette who comes under a spell, falls into a coma, and his awakened by Nick’s boss, Captain Sean Renard. By waking her up, Juliette and Captain Sean Renard start this love affair that’s out of their control. While I enjoy the show immensely and I can’t wait for next week’s episode, I hope that they resolve this Juliette spell issue as soon as possible. It’s stealing the light away from the show’s main theme.
