Some TV Shows that Sound Interesting....  

  • Premieres: Monday, Nov. 4 at 8/7c

Not to be confused with Syfy's Being Human, in this futuristic cop drama from Fringe's J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman, human LAPD officers (like Karl Urban's John Kennex) are partnered with highly evolved androids (like Michael Ealy's Dorian). Yes, it's like Mac and C.H.E.E.S.E., except with more lifelike robots and without the awkward dude to remote-control them.

  • Premieres: Friday, Oct. 25 at 10/9c

Why create new vampires when you can just revisit the most famous one of all? A reimagining of Bram Stoker's Dracula, the horror thriller, from Carnivale's Daniel Knauf, stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the classic vamp who comes to London posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to introduce Victorian society to modern science (how steampunk!). Of course, Drac is just there to seek revenge on those who've wronged him. Along the way, he falls in love with Mina Murray (Jessica De Gouw), who seems to be a reincarnation of his dead wife. The show was ordered straight-to-series for 10 episodes.

  • Premieres: Tuesday, Sep. 24 at 8/7c

Coulson lives! Clark Gregg reprises his Avengers role in the Joss Whedon drama — despite his death at the hands of Loki in the film — as Agent Phil Coulson, who assembles a team of top-secret agents, including Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge. Cobie Smulders makes a cameo in the pilot as Agent Maria Hill, who knows exactly how Coulson was resurrected. Oh, and Coulson has a sweet new ride named Lola.

Premieres: Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8/7c

The Once Upon a Time spin-off is, duh, based on Alice in Wonderland. But this Alice (Sophie Lowe) finds herself in an asylum, after her father catches wind of her tales about falling down a rabbit hole to Wonderland, where she met all the usual suspects: The White Rabbit (John Lithgow), The Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha), The Queen of Hearts (Barbara Hershey) and Aladdin's Jafar (Naveen Andrews). There's also a genie named Cyrus (Peter Gadiot), who also happens to be the unrequited love of Alice's life.

The Originals

  • Premieres: Thursday, Oct. 3 at 9/8c

Big Easy living is fun when you're undead. The Vampire Diaries spin-off tells the story of the world's original vamps, Klaus (Joseph Morgan), his brother Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and sister Rebekah (Claire Holt), as they return to New Orleans, the city they built, to reunite with Klaus' former protégé Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), who now rules the city with an army of obedient vampires and witches. Klaus chooses to stay after he learns that Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) is pregnant after their one-night stand, and their child could one day be king of the city. Take that, royal baby!

Premieres: Monday, Sep. 16 at 9/8c

Tom Mison stars as Ichabod Crane in this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving's classic short story, from Fringe's Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Frozen in time for 250 years, Crane awakes to partner up with Sleepy Hollow's sheriff Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) to solve the mysteries of a town ravaged by evil forces, including Death, aka the Headless Horseman, who's also found his way to the present. Don't lose your head over this show!

Want to check out all of those except The Originals. Never got into the Vampire Diaries so there's no need.

See and after watching TVD I'm looking forward to that one the most.

Lots of new shows coming. I'll probably check all of them out. I didn't know about the Once Upon A Time spin-off. Looks interesting too. Only one I'm not sure about is Sleepy Hollow, but we shall see.

The more I hear about Sleepy Hollow the less interesting it sounds. I'm afraid it will be awful and that is one I really want to be good.
Angelserenitysangel on August 21st, 2013 04:53 pm (UTC)
Hmm doesn't sound hopeful does it? ;/
Jill aka Josireesanwar on August 23rd, 2013 06:28 am (UTC)
Not really.
Phoenixburned_phoenix on August 19th, 2013 08:08 am (UTC)
ohh awesome!

Definitely checking out Almost Human, SHIELD and Sleepy Hollow

The vid for Alice wouldn't play for me so I'm gonna go see if I can find something on youtube

Daniel Gillies is tempting, but I think I'll pass on The Originals anyway :D
Jill aka Jo: TVD: Caroline and Klaus dancingsireesanwar on August 20th, 2013 06:20 pm (UTC)
I can't wait for SHIELD. That one is just so high on my list. I love Super Heroes.

See I'm so looking forward to The Originals it isn't even funny.
Phoenixburned_phoenix on August 21st, 2013 07:46 am (UTC)
Yeah, I'm really looking forward to it too :)

Hehe, maybe once it started and I get bored with something else... I won't say I'll never watch it, there's always a chance :D
Jill aka Josireesanwar on August 22nd, 2013 10:02 pm (UTC)
Yeah that is me too. I tend to want to watch things after the fact. I started Fringe in the 3rd season and had to catch up which I'm very happy I did because I love that show.
Phoenixburned_phoenix on August 26th, 2013 07:49 am (UTC)
I think I watched Fringe til the start of s3, I do still plan on finishing that at some point though :D
Jill aka Jo: Fringe: Alta Oliviasireesanwar on September 3rd, 2013 05:18 am (UTC)
It was really good. If you don't remember what was happening you might want to rewatch it.
Phoenixburned_phoenix on September 3rd, 2013 07:27 am (UTC)
yeah, I probably should. I think the last thing I remember was something with a bomb with tons of lights set in a square on a wall?

I could be completely off though, either that it wasn't a bomb, or that I watched more after that :D
Jill aka Josireesanwar on September 4th, 2013 07:22 pm (UTC)
That was the first season I'm pretty sure. So yeah you don't remember what was happening.
Phoenixburned_phoenix on September 5th, 2013 11:03 am (UTC)
Nah, I don't :D

I'll catch up at some point. I do remember liking the show. The problem was just that we were watching it on German TV and they either stopped or changed the time slot or whatever and we didn't pick it up again.

I think Andy actually finished watching it in the mean time. Or planned to. Have to ask him :D
Jill aka Josireesanwar on September 11th, 2013 06:04 am (UTC)
Ah well it was good.
