what to watch?

A new television season is nearly upon us!

(Do I need to mention that the only reason I’m excited it’s September already is that The Walking Dead will be back in October? :may3 )

So anyway, there are some new shows coming on, & I’m trying to decide what’s worth watching—if anything.

What’s on your To See list?  For me, there’s only a handful I’m contemplating…

Legends (TNT) — Though I haven’t actually watched an episode yet, I’ve been recording them.  On the one hand, I love Sean Bean, & the concept for this one reminds me a little of the too-soon-canceled Missing or maybe Taken.  On the other hand, I can’t stand Ali Larter, so I’m not sure I’ll be able to handle her floating around on the show. :may4

Stalker (CBS) — Dylan McDermott, yes.  Maggie Q, not so much.  I sort of like the sound of this one, but I’m not sure I like it enough to watch.  Chances are I’ll record an episode or two & give it a try, then decide as it moves along.

Bad Judge (NBC) — Don’t judge me for this (no pun intended :may39 ) but this one looks moderately amusing, so I might check it out.  I’m not sure it will be all that good & it may not even last very long, but maybe it will be good for a couple of laughs.

NCIS:  New Orleans (CBS) — We’ve talked about this one before.  Despite the slight annoyance of Scott Bakula’s bad New Orleans accent, I am going to record this one.  I’m hoping it’s good, & since I’ve always liked the original NCIS (& NCIS: Los Angeles isn’t terrible) I want to give it a shot.

Salem (WGN) — Okay, so this isn’t a new show, but thanks to a Season 1 marathon over the summer, I managed to catch up & am now ready for the Season 2 premiere.  From this point on, I’ll be able to watch this one like the rest of you—one episode at a time. :mat27

Sleepy Hollow (Fox) — Another not-new, but new-to-me show that many of you have said is really good & that I should check out.  I didn’t catch the first season, of course, but I have been recording the repeats they’ve shown over the past several weeks.  Unfortunately, they aren’t playing them in order & I’m not sure they’ll have time to show them all before Season 2 begins, so this may be a hit-or-miss one for me.  I’ll record what I can & hope I’m able to catch up, but I may not be able to start fresh when the rest of you do. :may4

A few…& I mean a very few…that I might check out, but am really on the fence about include:  NBC’s Constantine…ABC’s Forever…& Syfy’s Z Nation—but only because it contains zombies; Syfy’s track record isn’t great, though, so I’m not expecting much. :may24

How about you?  What new &/or returning shows are you looking forward to?

    • Heidi says:

      Oh, yes, I’m pretty much in it for Lucas Black, too. :may2

      I *love* The Strain! Have really been enjoying it & I’m sure I’ll miss it when it goes on break. :may4

    I saw the episode of NCIS New Orleans where it was on NCIS and they introduced the cast of characters. I pretty much knew there was gonna be a spin off but it just doesn’t look at good as the original show and Bakulas accent is awful.

    • Heidi says:

      Can’t disagree with you, Mary. I’m going to watch it because I didn’t like NCIS: LA at all until Deeks joined the crew, so I feel there’s potential for NCIS: NO to be decent…either from the start or down the road. Plus, I <3 Lucas Black enough to overlook Bakula's awful accent. I'm just hoping I can *put up* with the accent long-term. :May37

    About the only show I watch now is Supernatural, which doesn’t start again until October.

  4. Yazmin R. says:

    I can’t wait for Supernatural, Once Upon a Time, The Vampire Diaries, Star Crossed, Sleepy Hollow and many more I’m sure I’m forgetting (thank God for DVR, lol) :may39

    • Heidi says:

      Ditto on the DVR thing!

      But are there any *new* shows you’re planning to watch?

      I’ve never heard of Star-Crossed…what’s it about?

      • Yazmin R. says:

        I know there were new shows but I forget the names, there is one called “The Messengers” in the CW that I’m looking forward to. They still haven’t said when it will air but just the preview is enough to get me interested. :may4

        Star-Crossed kind of reminds me of Roswell, don’t don’t f you watched it. But this one is based a few years in the future. Basically it’s about this group of alien that were looking for a new planet to live in and crash landed on earth. As soon as they arrived a battle between humans and them happened, many died and the rest are controlled by the government. After many years the 5 members of the younger generation is being allowed to interact with the humans. But there is a pot within the aliens to take over earth, which not all of them agree on. And then there are the hum as plotting to destroy all aliens too. Here is the link for more info just so I don’t make this super long… :may33

    There are so many I think I have to order the new xFinity dvr so I can record them all and still watch something. I am looking forward to Revenge coming back on and for the new shows I want to check out Stalker, NCIS:New Orleans, and now my mind went blank. LOL Also looking forward to the return of Arrow, Sleepy Hollow, Castle, and so many more. I actually made a spread sheet of days and times and channels. How pitiful is that? I printed out the line-ups from all the channels and made a list. Sheesh. Hello, my name is Holly and I am a tv junkie.

    Hope all are having a good Super Moon night.

    As far as new shows: Stalker, Forever and we will see what else.

    As far as returning favorites: Castle, NCIS, Criminal Minds, Once Upon a time, Resurrection, Suits season 4 (second half I think)

    Those are off the top of my head.
