loved the Lucifer season premiere

I gave 'the good place' a few mins... i gotta admit... well maybe the entire show ... LOL... it's funny

"who got it right?'
"well, every religion got about 5% right, except for Doug Forest"
"who's Doug Forset?"
"Doug was a stoner kid who lived in Calgary in the '70. one night he got really high on 'shrooms and his friend asked him 'what do you think happens when we die.'
"Doug launched in to a monologue where he got about 92% right."

i don't know if the premise will carry it through a few eps but I found the first one funny. the writing is decent, total surprise.

remember I'm the world worst reviewer because i like everything
LOL


anyone else catch any of the new shows?

I am enjoying The Good Place. I don't know if it will make the regular rotation, but I am liking it for now.

We watched Lethal Weapon and really liked it. I'm not a good reviewer either. The leads had good chemistry, and I am a big fan of the Wayans.

We saw Frequency at Dragon Con (the local CW screened it and then asked for volunteers to take a survey-we didn't, but I was super happy that they showed it). I thought it was pretty good. We will check it out when it comes out. I do hate that the CW is waiting so long to start up.

We are loving Better Things on FX. Pamela Adlon is amazing!

Not a new show, but the new season of American Horror Story has really drawn me in. So great! (I told you guys I wasn't a good reviewer)

eta-I finally got caught up on my TV Guide reading, and now have a bunch more new shows I want to check out.

Only thing I've watched so far is Agents of SHIELD. Am cautiously optimistic. Having the Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider worked better than I thought it would, and I liked how we got a more mature version of the character than we (not to long ago) got in the comics. Have to see how the season goes :)

I'm also not the best reviewer but here goes for what I've watched so far:

The Good Place-pleasantly surprised! It was funny and had a plot that wasn't just a rehash of other shows. I'll stick with this one for at least the first season.

Designated Survivor-very good first episode. I knew I was going to like this initially just because I love 24 and Jack Bauer, but the show made me like it on its own merits. Judging from the season preview they showed at the end of the episode it will probably go down a slightly predictable plot line but I'm A-ok with that because they seem to be doing a good job.

Scream Queens (season two)-I love this show even though it's really not that great-ha! I had problems with season 1 as it got later in the season so I'm cautious, but the first episode of this season was good. Set up the characters, provided some backstory to what happened in between seasons, and the new characters should be funny (Stamos and Lautner)

NCIS:NO-I hadn't kept up with the news so I didn't know Brody wasn't coming back. I really don't like the new girl. Ugh. I'll stick with it a few more eps to see if she gets better.
On that same note, the new cast in regular NCIS are alright for now, I don't hate them.

(Mr. Robot finale was also on my watch list this week. I feel like I have no idea what is going on but at the same time love it)

I didn't know abt NCIS:NO..... oh my.  I've been so focused on the new shows i haven't had a time to catch up on my second string returning shows. I did watch the flagship NCIS show & was ok with the casting.

I suppose I should post here that I saw the pilot of Timeless at the panel at SDCC. It seemed like a good premise before I saw the show, but the pilot itself was just blah for me. I guess it was just a little too predictable, and I could easily see the way the show was going. They tried to set up an intriguing long-term plot, but it didn't draw me in. The romantic tension between the two leads felt a bit forced too. I'm hoping they punched it up a bit between SDCC and now, because I think the idea has potential.

Not sure where to put this, since its streaming, but this is great news:

Amazon Orders ‘The Tick,’ ‘I Love Dick,’ Jean-Claude Van Damme Comedies to Full Series:

Also known as the group of shows most likely to get mentioned on "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!" this weekend.

So excited about the Tick. Still going to miss Patrick Warburton no matter how good Peter Serafinowicz is.
