Which New Show Are You Looking Forward To?

Yay!!! It is almost here. The Fall 2014 TV season is about to begin and there are some potential greats in the mix. Now of course we have the return of some of our favorites; Arrow, Castle, Doctor Who, Sleepy Hollow, and more.  Then the return of some we hope can hold their momentum and not fizzle out again – I am talking to you Agents of SHIELD. The other part that is exciting is being able to see what new shows the networks have decided to throw at us. Now I know there is no way for all of these shows to survive (Almost Human), but it is still fun to see, hopefully, fresh ideas make it to the small screen.

I think overall we have gained more shows than we lost so we will see how they can hold up against the new show runners. Last year we dropped Bones and NCIS because they just could not hold our attention in comparison. We lost HIMYM and Believe, but overall I think that is going to be overpowered. As I did last year I will be doing a verdict post for each of the new shows that David and I are interested in.  What I want to know is what show are you most looking forward to with the new slate of shows? Vote in the poll and leave a comment!

As you can see Agent Carter is not listed as that is going to be a mid-season premier in January so technically is not a new FALL show.

Verdict: Selfie, Early Release Pilot

Okay, so this was a show that from the previews I had basically already written off. Now I had heard that the pilot for Selfie had been released, but just could not see watching it. Then David and I found it on Hulu looking for something else and we decided we would give it a shot and see if it completely annoyed us after 5 minutes. Amazingly we made it through the entire episode and I have to say I don’t know if I had such low expectations that the only way to go was up, but it was not that bad. I am even willing to give it another chance and watch the next episode when it comes out in a month.

I have to say the trailer honestly showed the most annoying moments of Eliza and we miss some of the more human moments that we can all relate to. I think the two things this show has going for it are the two leads, Karen Gillan and John Cho, and an overarching commentary on the overuse of technology.
