*Rises from the grave* Hellloooooo!!!!!
This blog’s been pretty dead since the first half of Teen Wolf’s third season ended. But that’s all about to change, because fall is here!
As many of you know, I’m on the market for a new show to obsess over since I’ve ended my severely unhealthy relationship with The Vampire Diaries. I’ve seen the stills for the season premier. I only plan on watching the Bonnie/Jeremy scenes, because I can’t take everyone else anymore. I will sometimes blog about the Beremy scenes if something really good happened (but we all know that it’s more likely that something very bad will happen).
But I’m going to be focusing on greener pastures! First up: Sleepy Hollow premieres next Monday, the 16th at 9pm Central on FOX! (Does this mean it airs at 10pm for me? I’m live in the EST. That would actually be perfect. I’d be home in time to catch it). Anyways, this is the show I’m hoping will take TVD’s place on my roster. Fingers crossed that it’s very good and the network keeps it! I’ve never watched a FOX show, but I hear they have a reputation for canceling shows without really giving them a chance?
Next is a show called Witches of East End. It will start airing on October 6th at 9/8pm Eastern Time. One of the producers worked on Eastwick. I gave that show a chance, but the plot wasn’t going anywhere 6 episodes in, so it got cancelled. A lot of you know I’ve been starving for a show about witches since Charmed ended. This one features, what else, a whole bunch of White women. It’s centered on a White family of witches. I hope the characters are great and that the plot is great so that it can last. The effects look good enough for me! And this airing on Sundays means I’ll be able to catch it every week.
I’ll need a couple of episodes to decide which of the above two shows will get podcast reviews and which will get written reviews, because I do want to review both. I think I’ll be doing written reviews for both until I decide (or until they get canceled :(, whichever comes first).
Speaking of witches, I’m going to watch American Horror Story this season because, hello, this season is about witches. I’m as predictable as Julie Plec’s writing. I tried watching the show when it premiered, but the plot wasn’t interesting enough for me, and then I heard it got gross. Kathy Bates is playing Madame Lalaurie. Like, she’s playing the actual person who existed in the real world. This woman (Madame Lalaurie) tortured and killed her slaves on the 19th century. So. We’ll see :/. The season premieres on October 9th at 10pm on FX. Teaser number 6 looks incredible! I don’t plan on officially reviewing this one. That would be too much on my plate.
And of course, I’m going to tune in to Scandal, which comes back on October 3rd, and review it with the fabulous Sabrina.
And these are my Fall TV plans. There’s also Almost Human, but it’s a cop show set in the future. It has an angsty White dude (Karl Urban), and a Black guy (which, yay! He’s played by Michael Ealy). Michael Ealy’s character is an android. Aside from one of the leads being a man of color, I have no interest in this show. I’m not into androids, or cops, there’s nothing supernatural, and it’s about testosterone. I am going to give it a chance, though, in support of Ealy. The title seems to have something to do with his character, I’d say. I’ll just make it my “Watch it When I Have Time” show.
Et vous? What are your Fall TV plans? Do they look anything like mine? What other interesting shows are on their way to the small screen? I didn’t even know about Witches of East End until maybe three weeks ago. I almost missed out!
As always, I will change the blog’s current theme as soon as the new shows start airing. So next Monday!
