Showtime... New Shows....  
Time traveler James Cole (Aaron Stanford) travels from the year 2043 to the present day to stop the release of a deadly virus by the enigmatic organization known as "The Army of the Twelve Monkeys". That virus, in Cole's original timeline, caused the death of 93.6% of the world population. Cole will be helped by the brilliant virologist Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) and a math genius with mental issues, Jennifer Goines (Emily Hampshire).

I forgot to add this to yesterday's post. Okay so this is a show I watched all the way through and I don't know how to describe it really except to say it is a fantastic and unpredictable show. More than once I was totally surprised and all the time travel. I loved it!

Just saw the first episode. This show might have potential if done correctly but I have a feeling it won't. Well have to see.

Right from go I was bored and really sadden by the acting. Drop.

I loved it last season and this season doesn't seem to be changing my mind. I was routing for these characters the entire time. I love a good Service Men story that is all about the heroes.

Felt like a rip off of Firefly and Andromeda. I haven't nixed the show but I don't know if I'll be able to stick it out unless it gets really interesting.

An alternative history set in 19th-century England around the time of the Napoleonic Wars, it is based on the premise that magic once existed in England and has returned with two men: Gilbert Norrell and Jonathan Strange. Centring on the relationship between these two men, the novel investigates the nature of "Englishness" and the boundaries between reason and unreason, Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Dane, and Northern and Southern English cultural tropes/stereotypes.

Really good. At first, I wasn't sure I was enjoy the show but everytime it ended I would be so upset by that. So good. A must watch. I really love Jonathan Strange. Mr. Norrell pisses me off and the whole Fae aspect is sooo hard to deal with but then it is neat to see and the effects on this show are so cool especially when Strange gets going.

Odd but intriguing though they are bugging me with the idea that the adults can't handle what is happening and are instead indoctrinating the children. Not okay. I suspect if they would tell the truth then the Reckonings wouldn't have to happen. I think if people really knew what was happening they'd be able to work together a lot better and there would be none of this secrecy and subterfuge but then I guess that is what the show is about. I do like the show seems to move rather quickly. There isn't months of wondering what is happening.

I have no idea if I want to keep watching this one. It seems interesting enough but I thought it was going to be about ghosts and it is about aliens, I think. I am a little curious to see what is going to happen but I'm still on the fence with this one.

Got to see the preview episode of Supergirl which I actually really liked. It reminded me of the early Smallville episodes with a little of the rose color glasses and some silliness but I think it might be good. Hopefully they won't stay too fluffy but I'm ready to watch a woman superhero who is coming into her own.

I watched all of 12 Monkeys too and while I couldn't say I loved it, I did find myself surprisingly hooked. I don't like Cole or Cassie, to be honest, and a lot of the story lines made me uncomfortable but I did want to keep watching to see what happens. I'll be tuning in next season to see where it goes.

Haven't tried any of the others, though serenitysangel recc'ed a couple of them so I might yet.

I can't say I love any of the characters either. Which is why it surprises me that I love the show. I really want to be on Cole's side but he makes terrible decisions.

The only one I would say is totally worth it is Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. SOOOOO Good.

I'm really enjoying these "new show" posts, hun :)
I've tried watching Dark Matter, the first two eps, and yeah, I don't think I'll be following that one. Sad, because there are very few Space shows out there right now. I tried Killjoys too, but nope.

I'm going to give Poldark and Eureka a go, but really, all I'm doing is biding time till my favourites return from hiatus.

I really loved Poldark so let me know what you think.

Eureka is hard to find, unless you have Netflix, because it is kind of old.

Yeah, I don't think I'm going to stick it out with Dark Matter either and I couldn't even watch Killjoys.

haven't tried Twelve Monkeys, but now I might.

After one episode, I'm still keeping an open mind about Proof. I'm not sure which way it will go though, either. It could drop so fast from where it's at now.

I like a few of the characters on Stitchers, so I'm keeping with it. There seems to be more to some of them than you can first see. Not sure if they can pull it of though.

I didn't even stay with the last ship for one season. I was just soooo bored!

Gosh, dark matter. I didn't even make it though episode one. I gave it two tries, but just couldn't make myself sit through it.

Yes, Supergirl does feel a bit like early Smallville. I'm looking forward to see where it will go.



Killjoys is surprisingly a lot better than I expected! (I admit I expected something reeaaaaaly bad) The first images looked so very trashy, but it caught me a lot more than most others lately. (could be the ashmore factor though)

Also, unReal is a lot better than I thought it would be. It's 'behind the scenes of a reality show' so I was like ... eeek, I don't think I want to watch that. But I like the actress who plays the main character so I gave it a go. It's a fun disaster.

I really loved 12 Monkeys but it is a little confusing at first because you only get basic facts but what I love is that the series wasn't super long and by the end of the first season you have a pretty good idea what is going on.

Yes, Proof is up in there air. I need to watch the second episode.

You were bored with The Last Ship? Oh man I love it. I feel like it is action packed... admittedly some of the first season was stupid but overall I was totally interested.

I just watched episode 2 of Dark Matters and I really think I need to drop it. It really isn't that interesting but I love the guy on it... Roger Cross... I want to cuddle that man. He was on Continuum but I didn't love that show and he was a bad guy I didn't like so...


Doesn't it. I hope Supergirl doesn't become so whiny and annoying though. I really liked Kara. She was kind of a newbie and enjoying herself. I want that to continue. And I LOVED Jimmy. Can't wait to see more of him.

I wanted to watch Killjoys for Ashmore but I just could not do it. So sad.

I haven't seen that... interesting.

Ohh, look what I found :D I thought I had answered this already :s


I somehow missed that Proof has actually started, they are a bunch of episodes along already! I'll have to look into that :D

Yes, I stopped somewhere in the first season with The Last Ship. I didn't want to because Eric Dane! But it was really hard to keep watching. Maybe I'll give it another try if you say it picked up like that :)

I just saw that guy on The Strain! Just started that one this week, he doesn't have a big part but I was all 'ohh, look, we just talked about him' :D

Oh, yes, please not another whiny female. I hope they'll keep her the way she was in the pilot. There are enough whiny and nagging females on tv as it is. We're not all like that, are we? :D

I'm quite good with Killjoys now, it's fun to watch, not too deep and not overly complicated, but entertaining in a relaxing way to me :D Also, Ashmore :D Yes, I have no idea when I got so attached to those boys :D
Jill aka Josireesanwar on July 29th, 2015 09:58 pm (UTC)
Yeah it is a few episodes in. I'm intrigued by Proof but now overly so. It is so ambiguous to me.

I loved the first season but I'm really starting to want to dump the show with the second season. It isn't interesting anymore.

I loved her in that Pilot so I'm really hoping for Supergirl.

I couldn't watch Killjoys. Sad.
