The warning is there, spoilers are always possible.
So, I don't only watch Doctor Who and I found myself doing what a lot of others are doing this week and catching some of the new shows that have come out.
Scream Queens – Funny, campy, a lot silly can’t say it’s going to last. Though they swiftly killed off some of the more annoying characters, and for that I was grateful, I still don’t know if it has that something. Plus it’s on KILL-EM Fox, think Firefly, so it basically is wearing a Red Shirt before heading out on an Away Team.
Blindspot – I want to like this, I really do. It was pretty cool, but not awesome. I kept joking “Chefs do that” if you have ever seen The Long Kiss Goodnight you’ll get the joke, amnesiac Gina Davis regains her memories after playing housewife for 5 or so years, previously she was a killer assassin. Yeah, it was like that sort of. But, it seemed lacking, they lacked a character build that made my husband and I care about it. We’ll give it another episode or two but if they don’t step it up a bit I’ll be deleting it from my DVR rotation.
Heroes Reboot – Again, want to love it, really do but they didn’t do enough Hero’y stuff that is going to make the public stay. You have to come back swinging. We watched the first season and when that writer strike hit we cursed them for ruining our show. We loved Heroes. Heroes Reboot sort of feels like Heroes Lite. Hopefully it’s just working on a slow boil.
Limitless – Finally! Edge of seat interesting! I cared about that loser, first I was irritated by Brian Finch, come on dude you’re nearing your 30s…give up the “band back together” thoughts, at least get a real job in the straight world and keep that dream alive on the weekends. I want to watch the next episode. Though yes I have already figured out that 1 he will solve her father’s death and 2 I have a bad feeling that his father will be dying.
We DVRed The Player but haven’t watched it yet. I hate to look at a show and instantly think it’ll be canned but both my husband and I are leaning toward that feeling. But hey, I just am doing this for fun so if you love it, maybe I’m wrong.
Regarding a season premier but not a series premier – The Backlist comes back next week! Love that one! Even if Ms. Keen can be downright annoying. Red more than makes up for it for sure!
What did you think about the new shows?
