Fall TV Talk

Friday's is when I usually post YA Movie News, but it's been pretty quiet lately with not a lot of rumblings about YA Books and Movies. So instead I thought I'd talk about one of my other favorite things (after books of course!:) Fall TV! Every year I get so excited for the new TV season. I'm such a dork about these things. I research all the new shows, buy the Fall TV Preview of Entertainment Weekly, and circle the shows I want to watch. Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan and I don't always agree on what shows to watch and he would rather wait a season to see if a show sticks around, where I would prefer to get in on a new show from the start. So here's what made my DVR list and what I'm excited about this year:

Ringer-I really wanted this show to be good, but so far it's not exciting me as much as I thought. I really thought this last week's episode had scenes that looked and sounded like they were straight out of a soap opera. Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan would say "it's on CW, what did you expect? I know, I should know better. I had hopes this would fill the Veronica Mars-sized hole in my heart. I'll still watch it though-because it is Buffy after all.

New Girl
Thanks Jana for reminding me I forgot this one! I think this one could be very funny. My favorite part of the pilot was the Lord of the Rings reference. But I do hope the characters get developed more. I don't think a show can only be about how nerdy the girl is.

Once Upon a Time
I love fairy tales and this one looks like it has the right amount of epic fantasy and fairy tale-plus amazing costumes and you know I love me some pretty dresses!:)
OK, for some reason in my head this show seems like BBC's Sherlock. I don't know why-I think it's the dectective thing and I hope this one has the same amount of witty snark to it. If it does, I'm sold!

I'm also watching The Sing Off, my favorite reality competition (after Project Runway, which I'm way behind on this season!) And I think I'm going to give Pan Am a try, although I fear it too will be too soapy.

What's on your watch list? Anyone else excited about fairy tales being the next big thing?


  1. I can't wait for Once Upon a Time, it looks great. And I am going to try Pan Am as well. I adored The New Girl, probably my favorite new show so far!

  2. I'm on the fence about New Girl. I think it has a lot of potential, but the pilot relied on quite a few base jokes for a laugh. I need more wit!

  3. Oh, and Once Upon a Time looks cool. I'm also a sucker for a pretty dress. :-)

  4. I hear ya- I have a Sherlock-sized hole in my heart! I miss Veronica too. What do they both have in common? Excellent writers!

  5. I'm going to try Once Upon a Time too. Ringer better improve really, really quickly else not even SMG can save it for me. It's pretty awful. I'm enjoying The Secret Circle and Up All Night is hilarious.

  6. I'm looking forward to Once Upon a Time and Grimm. New Girl was okay. I watched the pilot of The Secret Circle and am going to watch more.

  7. I'm like dorkishly excited about Once Upon a Time and Grimm!

  8. These are all on my list too! Though I've heard that Grimm and Once Upon a Time are both not starting until at least October. I did enjoy New Girl but found Ringer to be a bit meh. Will be interested to hear what you thought. Oh, and I'm watching Sing Off as well. Delilah is my current fave followed by the group from Howard University.

  9. I never even HEARD of Once Upon a Time or Grimm, but am so excited that I caught this post...definitely going to check them out! (I have a five year old, and she usually controls the remote...I watch a lot of Phineas and Pherb!) And I also loved New Girl, but am wondering how it will sustain. Hopefully they'll be able to keep it hilarious!

  10. I think New Girl has potential, so I'll keep my eyes on it. I also watched Whitney, which was kind of funny. And of course, I'm super excited to have Parks & Rec back and Modern Family!!
