FallTV2016: 10 New Series I'm Checking Out
With the re-installment of our DSL connection, and just in time for fall TV, the series junkie that I am is once again on a high as I watch new seasons of the shows I religiously follow. Top it off with new ones that replaced cancelled or ended series and I'm on cloud nine. #ThisIsProbablyWhyImSingle
Here are 10 new series I'm interested in checking out.
*Stranger Things not included coz I've already seen it.
Victoria (Aug. 29)
Okay. I'm a little late with this one because I only found out about it last night and they just aired the last episode, but it still counts. I've been into European history lately, sparking interest in the genre from watching Reign and The White Queen. Another reason why I want to see this is because is Jenna Coleman.
Van Healing (Sept. 24)
Yep. Another vampire story. But it's a female Van Helsing. It is interesting. It could be good. Check the trailer and judge for yourself.
Timeless (Oct. 4)
I wasn't entirely sure about this one but it involves time travel. That's an instant 'yes' in my book. I like watching shows like this to spot the plot holes in the timeline. Hehehe.
Westworld (Oct. 3)Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.
Not entirely sure what this is about but I'm sold on the casting alone. Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Ben Barnes, AND --- Anthony Hopkins.
The Crown (Nov. 4)"The Crown" reveals the political rivalries and romance behind Queen Elizabeth II's reign and the events that shaped the 2nd half of the 20th century.
Another European monarch show I'm going to check out. I'm interested in finding out how Queen Elizabeth II's life was and how it came to be.
Pitch (Sept. 23)Talented baseball pitcher Ginny Baker immediately rises to fame when she is called up by the San Diego Padres and becomes the first woman in Major League Baseball. She immediately sets in on the task of proving herself to her teammates, starting with team captain and catcher Mike Lawson. The two share an immediate chemistry, putting Mike in the middle of tensions between the beautiful new player and certain teammates who don't appreciate a woman out on the mound. Not all of her fellow Padres are so averse to change, with center fielder Blip Sanders providing support through her journey.
I was having second thoughts about this show only because I'm not that much into sports but after seeing the trailer, I was sold! It's a black woman playing a man's game. It's just perfect! It also kinda reminds of A League of Their Own, which I love, LOVE, L-O-V-E.
Notorious (Sept. 23)Follows the professional and personal relationship between a charismatic attorney and a powerhouse television producer as they attempt to control the media, the justice system, and ultimately - each other.
I only checked the this out because of Piper Perabo. Loved her from Coyote Ugly and I also liked Covert Affairs. Based on the trailer it seems exciting, a conspiracy and manipulating the news. I'm thinking Scandal and UnReal mashed together. Watch the trailer and tell me what you think.
MacGyver (Sept. 24)A reimagining of the classic series, is an action-adventure drama about 20-something Angus "Mac" MacGyver, who creates the Department of External Services (DXS), a clandestine organization within the U.S. government where he uses his extraordinary talent for unconventional problem-solving and vast scientific knowledge to save lives. Joining his team on high-risk missions around the globe is maverick former CIA agent Jack Dalton; Patricia Thornton, an ex-field agent turned director of operations; and Riley Davis, an unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder. At home, MacGyver is entertained by his ambitious roommate, Wilt Bozer. Under the aegis of the Department of External Services, MacGyver takes on the responsibility of saving the world, armed to the teeth with resourcefulness and little more than bubble gum and a paper clip.
My memory of MacGyver was my stepfather watching it when I was a kid. I may have seen a few episodes but don't remember anything about it. I'm excited to watch this retelling now that I'm an adult. Lucas Till looks good and so happy to see George Eads with him.
Frequency (Oct. 6)A female police detective in 2016 discovers she is able to speak via a ham radio with her father (also a detective) who died in 1996. They forge a new relationship while working together on an unresolved murder case, but unintended consequences of the ‘butterfly effect’ wreak havoc in the present day.
Another promising show, I can't wait to find out how the changes in the past affects the future/present of the lead female. I love her face too. I first saw her on Tomorrow People. Glad she has a new show again.
Bull (Sept. 21)Dr. Jason Bull is the charming and cocky founder of successful trial consulting firm Trial Analysis Corporation, where he and his team of experts employ psychology, human intuition and high-tech data to understand jurors, lawyers, witnesses and defendants, and construct effective narratives to help their clients win.
The first time I heard about this show was from James Corden when I was watching a very funny video of him offended that the network changed his show's tarpauline to Bull. And then I watched the trailer and it looks like a great show.
Have you seen any of these shows yet? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
