Dear ladies and gents,
in the interest of science (not really, I just had some spare time) I checked all of the trailers for all of the new shows that are due to air in September and October.
Remember way, waaay back when Fringe premiered? I was like
Sadly there was no similar reaction this time around. I did see a trailer for a Dallas rip off (Blood and Oil), 2 shows based on movies (the Minority Report and Limitless), a Dexter rip off (Wicked City) and honestly just a bunch of lackluster stuff. Given it’s kinda hard to judge anything based on the trailer alone. And any one of these might be a sleeper hit. So here is some stuff that kinda looked interesting? Please do let me know if there is anything you are terribly excited about that I might have missed.
This one gives me Parenthood vibes, but it seems heavier on the comedy rather than drama.
This seems like a cross between dunno Memento and the Whispers? It must be all the tattoos.
I *think* this is suppose to be an alternative to Castle/Bones? A police procedural with some romance thrown in?
Based on the trailer alone… well, meh. This is suppose to be another big hit for NBC (like Blacklist was/is). Hm, have they seen Chosen? This is kinda the same thing only with higher production values.
Ok this seems like it might be funny? And John Stamos because obvs I watched the Full House way back in the day. On the side note – how is it possible he still looks exactly the same all these years later? Plastic surgery? A magnificent skincare routine? Or there is a picture in the attic somewhere that reveals his true aging self? Lord knows but I do know I don’t understand it.
Another new TV show that looks like it might be funny. Another reason to watch? Rob Lowe (LITERALLY) and Fred Savage.
Based on the trailer alone and if I had to guess, if there is one show that might be a Blacklist contender (although Blacklist has James Spader so it’s kinda futile to compete with that) than it is Quantico. It seems hm interesting? But again as I mentioned above, it’s not like there is tons of exciting stuff.
