What to Watch This Fall
In my last few posts I’ve mentioned all the great reasons to love fall, and in addition to those, there is one more that I think could use some special attention. Next to football season being in full swing, we now have an entire new set of television shows to get completely addicted to. Sorry Netflix, this week is all about the new dramas! Now while many of our favorites are returning for their new season, here are just a few new ones to keep an eye out for.
1. How to Get Away with Murder
This show made its debut last night on ABC, and became a very popular Twitter trending topic, this show follows Viola Davis as Professor Annalise Keating, who teaches a Criminal Law 100 class. So far from what we’ve seen there are two murders looking to be solved, one in which the students are involved to study and learn from; and another in which they are actually involved in. So far, I’m completely intrigued by it and find it to be a show certainly worth checking out!
2.Red Band Society
When I first heard about this show I thought it was a reality show, which seemed strange; but after checking out a little bit of it, I saw it to be a drama show focusing on kids who spend their days in a hospital, and how their lives are always focused around their health, and how they try to live a normal lifestyle with the health conditions they have . While FOX typically goes for a softer side in comedy and dramas, I’m interested to see how it will handle some heavier topics, and how people will react to this.
This show I’m extremely interested in. (For those unaware of the Batman storyline, here might be a good start) Staged as a cop drama, Gotham, follows a young Detective Gordon as he tries to keep order in the very bleak and corrupt city of Gotham. A young Bruce Wayne appears and is taken away in the first episode, letting the viewer’s settle in for a superhero city that hasn’t gotten its superhero yet.
4. The Flash
If you have a love for super heroes, I strongly encourage you give The Flash a try! The CW first launched the idea of The Flash with a back door pilot during their hit series, Arrow (based on DC Comics The Green Arrow). So if there’s one thing you can count on is that there will be some crossover with these two shows. We follow our heroin played by Grant Gustin, who is an assistant police forensic investigator that gets struck by a chemical explosion in the lab during a thunderstorm giving him superhuman speed.
This new series is based on the life of the self-proclaimed computer expert and genius, Walter O’Brien. O’Brien, played by Elyes Gabel, and his team of brilliant-minded individuals, code named Scorpion, work together after being recruited by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, to help solve issues of high-tech threats around the globe.
