Fall Premiers


It is once again fall, and that means that the television has an influx of new TV shows. As is with every year, new TV shows are brought to the attention of the American public as the temperature cools, and we begin to spend more time indoors. During this time we snuggle up to our phones, tablets, computers and lastly TV. We explore and surf the web / channels, looking for something interesting to watch and draw us away from our everyday problems.

This season of new shows seem to be heavy on the super hero genre.  These shows include the return of the refurbished NBC’s  “Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” which is where a team from SHIELD tries to stop terrorist plots against the world. As well as the new series “Gotham,” about  Commissioner James Gordon’s rise to prominence in Gotham City before Batman’s arrival. In addition, the up coming premier of “Constantine,” a show centered around a man struggling with his faith, is haunted by the sins of his past.  However, he is suddenly thrust into the role of defending humanity from the gathering forces of darkness.

At the channel know for its super-natural soap opera “The Vampire Diaries,” the CW has made itself known as the place to get a super hero show started. “Arrow” returns for its third season.  After having been lost at sea, and presumed dead, the spoiled son of a millionaire returns to cleanse his hometown from crime, as a vigilante with superhuman capabilities.  The highly anticipated spin off from “Arrow” is “Flash,” in which the adventures of scientist Barry Allen are centered around his super human speed.

But that’s not all folks!! New sitcoms and dramas are arriving in the fall line-up this year too. With the highly anticipated premier of “How To Get Away With Murder,” a group of ambitious law students and their brilliant criminal defense professor become involved in a twisted murder plot that promises to change the course of their lives. As well as “Selfie,” where after being the subject of an embarrassing viral video, a self-involved 20-something enlists the help of a marketing expert to revamp her image in the real world. There is also “Blackish,” about a family man struggling to gain a sense of his cultural identity, while raising his kids in a predominantly white, upper-middle-class neighborhood. This fall seems to be getting more exciting by the day as we inch closer to more premiers.

As with every year, most of the shows we have committed ourselves to last fall have been moved to the winter line-up to make room for the new shows this fall. Be sure to check out some of these shows. Hopefully, some of them make it to your watch list!!
