TV Discussion Thread

Figured with the new fall season about to start, we can't go long without this thread!

I'm most excited for S.H.I.E.L.D. and the return of Elementary. I will probably try to keep an eye on The Crazy Ones and Super Fun Night, as well as Almost Human and Blacklist.

Also, of course, we should mention older shows we're catching up on. Now that my fall quarter looks to be very relaxed, I will be trying to watch a looot of Netflix. I see Xena in my future.

I'm also watching Arrested Development right now. Honestly, I tried to watch this show and I was absolutely underwhelmed -- didn't laugh, didn't care about anyone, thought all the hype was nonsense. I caught snippets of season three on IFC and found it more entertaining, and have been catching episodes on and off on Netflix. I'm enjoying it a lot more now, though it's not my favorite.

Basically I am about two months behind on *all* of my summer shows and need to catch up on them before Doctor Who and Downton Abbey come back and I add two more on which to fall behind.

You reminded me, of course Doctor Who is also on my list. Luckily for you, it's just the 50th Anniversary and the Christmas Special you have to catch up on for now -- I don't think they've even started filming Mr. Capaldi's 8th series yet. =)

And THAT reminds me, I will be trying to watch The Thick of It soon, too.

I can't wait until the new season of Downton Abbey. A friend if mine introduced me to the show several months ago and now I am enjoying watching the previous seasons on DVD. I love this show!

Sleepy Hollow starts Monday night. I'll give it a shot, since I like the material AND it's filmed here in North Carolina--at least parts of it. They're using Tryon Palace in New Bern, near where I went to college, as one of the sets :D

I really could clog this thread up with the stuff I watch. I'm looking forward to the following new shows:

Sleepy Hollow
The Originals (spin-off to The Vampire Diaries)
Dracula (starting to see a theme here and stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers of The Tudors)
Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Rein (probably won't catch on but I will watch)
Super Fun
The Tomorrow People
Hostages

I know I'm gonna have to give up something. LOLOLOLOL But the ratings will decide most of that.

I finally just started watching 24 on Netflix. I never watched it when it was on TV, so it's completely new to me.

So, what I want to know is... how the hell am I supposed to sleep when I have all of the episodes available to me back-to-back?!

I watched the Burn Notice series finale this morning.
