We're nearing the end of this new Fall television season with only a scarce few premiers left. And so far, all the hype made over the new show choices just hasn't been warranted.
We've had the rehashes, the new concepts and the just plain idiotic on our screens since the season began last month. But also, with just a few times occurring, we've also had the brilliant and wonderful.
We're sure you, our fellow viewer can agree with these statements.
However, since the majority of us on the MSTv staff are opinionated, bossy and just plain intense TV junkies, we feel compelled to watch every new show and express our feelings about them - just really short, brutally honest and to the point. So, let's do a few to start, K?
Ready to do this? Trust me, you'll probably get pissed off on some of our choices for "misses."
1) Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
- ABC began Sep. 24 (huge miss so far)
Bottom line: its rife with Marvel's trademarked, "I'm a flawed human, but will overcome" subtext. And as such, this just makes the episodes boring as hell. So unless something changes soon, you might wanna avoid this one. That is unless you want an hour nap in front of the TV.
2) Almost Human
- Fox begins Nov. 4 at 8/7c (not feeling it)
Bottom line: Cop shows are a dime a dozen and this one really isn't bring anything new to the table. Its like Robocop without the cool armor and guns and no humanity, palling around with a guy. I just don't care, nor will I be watching.
3) Back in the Game
- ABC began Sep. 25 (seriously???)
Bottom line: Do we need another feel-good show with lovable quirky characters? Hell no!! Pass!!!!
- ABC began Sep. 29 and airs on BET as well. (not bad. where its going, no idea)
Bottom line: This show is well set for drama in intensity, but it doesn't seem to have longevity or a staying power. If this was a British drama, which sometimes only run for one season then out, I could give it a better recommendation. But, for what it is I can only say, "watch, enjoy and wait for its cancellation."
5) The Blacklist
- NBC began Sep. 23 (not another one?!)
Bottom line: I had better hopes for Hannibal last season. Plus, it was a better show all-around. Pass..
Think this is all? No, there's lots more to come so let us know yo
