Random Thursday: I Can't Wait to See This TV Show...
I've never done this meme before but I thought it could be fun! It's hosted by the lovely ladies above, but I found it on Linny's Vault first. Every week, you are given a new topic that you then discuss on your blog! This week, the topic is...
There are shows that I already watch and can't wait to come back on the air, like Elementary and Glee, but I figured I'd use this post to talk about new Fall TV shows that I think look good.
-I own none of these photos, and all information about the shows comes from TV Guide here!
Back in the Game on ABC, airs Wednesday, September 25 at 8/7c
Batter up! Psych's Maggie Lawson stars as a divorced single mother and former all-star softball player who moves in with her estranged father, Terry "The Cannon" Gannon Sr. (James Caan), a beer-swilling ex-baseball player. Father and daughter reconnect when they start coaching a Little League team together. The comedy comes from Las Vegas' Mark and Robb Cullen, and also stars Ben Koldyke and Lenora Crichlow.
I'll be honest; I wouldn't normally want to watch this, but it stars Maggie Lawson (who I love on Psych - my favorite TV show) so I have to give it a shot! I'm hoping it will surprise me.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Fox, airs Tuesday, September 17 at 8/7c
Parks and Recreation's Dan Goor and Michael Schur bring you TV's newest odd couple: Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher as an immature detective and his tough, by-the-books captain, respectively. Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio, Melissa Fumero, Chelsea Peretti and Stephanie Beatriz co-star. No matter how the comedy does, it's already a winner: Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a way better title than The Artist Formerly Known as The 2-2.
Andy Samberg was one of my favorite comedians on SNL so it's exciting to see him in something new. I'm always a sucker for a good comedy, so I'm hoping this one will live up to the clips I've seen.
Dracula on NBC, airs Friday, October 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.
I think Jonathan Rhys Meyers is a fantastic actor, and while I didn't watch him in The Tudors, I'm still excited for him to be on another TV show...and it's primetime as well, so hopefully more people will watch! Love the premise of this one.
There are other shows on the TV Guide list that I want to check out, and they might end up being more of a favorite than the ones on this list, but I didn't want to overwhelm you with everything that looks good to me! This would be a long post if I did that. Plus, I work nights a few times a week so I tend to miss a lot of shows, and I'm always taping things to watch later (though I often don't have time) so that's another thing that might keep me from watching some of these shows. I'm excited that Dracula is Friday night so I can hopefully keep up with it!
