When I was younger, I always looked forward to the fall television season. It was fun seeing my favorite shows return and to check out some new ones. Now that the television landscape has changed and shows return at different times throughout the year, it’s more exciting.
Usually, I don’t get too excited about new shows. The ones I like usually get cancelled (“Commander In Chief”, “Invasion”, and “Eli Stone” to name a few.)
However, last weekend, we checked out the series premiere to “Red Band Society” (Fox), “Getting Away With Murder” (ABC), and “Madam Secretary” (CBS).
After just a couple of episodes, I gave up on “Red Band Society” and I don’t think I’m alone. It might be the first cancellation of the fall season and all shows haven’t even debuted!
Tea Leoni was great in “Madam Secretary” and it is well written and acted. But, Oscar nominee Viola Davis is incredible in “How To Get Away With Murder” and it’s my early favorite — so intelligent and sexy.
I’m still waiting to see “Gotham” (Fox), “Transparent (Amazon), “Stalker” (CBS), and “Gracepoint”(Fox).
Of course, I can’t wait for the new seasons of “The Walking Dead”, “American Horror Story”, “The Following” and “Hannibal”.
Whether it’s cancelled or renewed for a third season, I’m done with “Under The Dome” after the season two finale. Sorry, Chesters Mill!
With summer behind us and the days getting shorter, I’m making a list of the movies and the Oscar contenders that I want to see this fall and winter.
Here are the ones that I plan on seeing on the big screen with a large popcorn!
“Gone Girl” (October 3)
“Exodus: Gods And Kings”
“Into The Woods”
I’m really intrigued by this Nicole Kidman thriller, but I haven’t decided if it’s a theater movie or one that I’ll wait to see at home.
“Before I Go To Sleep”
And, here are the ones that I’ll likely be curled up on the couch and popping my own popcorn to watch when they come out on DVD.
“This Is Where I Leave You”
“Maps To The Stars”
“The Best of Me”
“Horrible Bosses 2”
“The Imitation Game”
Which ones are you interested in seeing and what new shows are you excited about this fall?
