So there are quite a few new shows that I am looking forward to and will give a first impression of all of those shows. Along with all the new shows we also have all the shows that we will be continuing to watch. Some of the shows we are pretty sure what we are going to get; Castle, NCIS: LA, Blacklist, etc. These are shows that I feel like I know the way that they operate and while they can still surprise me I know what I am getting into. There are a few shows that I am either excited or hopeful about because the direction that the seem to be going, but I am not quite sure what is going to happen; Arrow, Agents of SHIELD, and Sleepy Hollow. Each of these shows has something different that makes me excited or nervous for the next season of the shows story.

There have been a couple shows that David and I have recently dropped because they just were not holding our attention. It can be hard to decide what new shows to watch. If they do not hook me at the first episode do you try a couple more or do you just give up because there are so many other things to watch. Last year Elementary was a show that I tried one episode and just really did not care, even though I like the actor. Some of that came down to the fact that the BBC Sherlock Holmes is just so good another Sherlock show had a lot to live up to.
So now we come to another round of new shows to entertain and dazzle trying to grab our attention. So here are some shows coming out that I want to give a chance and one that I am already sold on. Continue reading →
