Fall TV – Quick Judgement

Dear ladies and gents,

can we talk about how there was nothing to watch this summer? And when I say nothing, I do mean nothing. Well apart from Stranger Things. I LOVED Stranger Things. Even with all the bad men and creepiness factor, it was one of the most delightful things I’ve seen.

At any rate – no TV means I could read more. And read I did. I went through 10 out of 13 Mark Billingham’s Tom Thorne novels (among other things).

As much as I enjoy reading (and I do, a lot) by mid-September I was itching for something interesting to watch. Thank heavens for the Great British Bake Off.

So like a gluttonous cow I wanted to watch EVERYTHING. Here are my first impressions (I can also be a judgemental cow, so bare with):

BullLie To Me knock off. Without Tim Roth. No offense to Michael Weatherly, but he is not Tim Roth. I prefer Tim Roth in all of his twitchy glory.

The Good Place – tries too hard to be quirky. And I normally like Kristen Bell.

Designated Survivor – Jack Bauer on Prozac.

Timeless – created by Kripke. I thought I’d be ALL OVER that. It’s like Stargate Atlantis and Back to the Future mated. A bit meh if I’m honest.

ConvictionHayley Atwell is in it. And she is supposed to be this bad-ass lawyer who is also a bit of a mess. Yeah, not really buying it. Viola Davis knocked that one out of the park.

Westworld – obviously this was hyped like crazy. I get it, the cast list is stellar. First time around I switched it off after the opening credits. I saw it was long and there was no way I’d make it through the end without falling sleep (it was late, ok?). Gave it another go and it was a bit touch and go in the beginning. I thought it’d be some rape-y sh*t and I don’t have time for that. In the end, it was fine. But I’m reserving my judgement until I’ve seen at least one more episode.

Luke Cage – now I love me some Marvel. Jessica Jones is one of the best things I’ve seen in years. I love Daredevil. I *thought* I’d be all over Luke Cage. ALL OVER IT. I saw 4 episodes so far. I managed to fall asleep 3 times. Yeah, I’m all

It’s LUKE CAGE.

So tell me dear ladies and gents, have you seen anything interesting of late?
