Not too much nerdiness, but I am happy for the return of The Night Shift.

Midnight, Texas starts up July 25, based on Charlaine Harris' bestselling book series. I may have to check this one out.

Chris Hardwick continues his path to TV World domination-his game show The Wall will air over the summer.

Sorry for the consecutive posts, but this is a different subject. Amazon has dropped their new pilots for review/voting

Descriptions from this article:
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

"The Legend of Master Legend"
Length: 30 minutes
Amazon Description: "The Legend of Master Legend" is a dark comedy about the life of Frank Lafount, a.k.a. Master Legend - a homemade superhero whose mission is to protect the people of Las Vegas from evildoers. Master Legend juggles the demands of justice with the even more complicated demands of his real family, who don’t see him as a hero at all.

"Budding Prospects"
Length: 30 minutes
Amazon Description: In 1983, three hapless city boys move from their comfort zone of the San Francisco counter-culture to Mendacino to grow marijuana. Their expectations of the experience being a back-to-the-land, nurturing adventure in a beautiful rustic setting run up against the harsh truth prior to their arrival at "The Summer Camp" — a miserably run-down shanty out in the middle of nowhere, where they are bedeviled by rats, snakes, mosquitoes, and harsh, unfriendly growing conditions, noisy neighbors, dangerous locals, and menacing law enforcement. The pilot stars Adam Rose ("Veronica Mars"), Joel David Moore ("Bones"), Will Sasso ("MADtv") and Brett Gelman ("Fleabag").

"The New V.I.P.’s"
The show stars Ben Schwartz
Length: 30 minutes
Amazon Description: Amazon’s first adult animated comedy show, "The New V.I.P.’s" follows a group of low-level employees who seize control of a major corporation after accidentally murdering their boss. The pilot stars Matt Braunger ("Agent Carter"), Ben Schwartz ("Parks and Recreation"), Missi Pyle ("Gone Girl") and Jonathan Adams (Last Man Standing).

"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"
Length: Hour
Amazon Description: It’s 1958 Manhattan and Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan, "House of Cards") has everything she’s ever wanted - the perfect husband, two kids, and an elegant Upper West Side apartment perfect for hosting Yom Kippur dinner. But her perfect life suddenly takes an unexpected turn and Midge discovers a previously unknown talent - one that changes her life forever. She charts a course that takes her from her comfortable life on Riverside Drive, through the basket houses and nightclubs of Greenwich Village as she storms the world of stand-up comedy…a course that will ultimately lead her to a spot on Johnny Carson’s couch.

"Oasis"
Length: Hour
Amazon Description: Based on the cult-hit novel The Book of Strange New Things from Michel Faber, "Oasis" follows a chaplain (Richard Madden, "Game of Thrones") who is sent into space to help establish a colony on a distant planet. What he ends up discovering not only puts his faith to the test, but life as we know it.

I want to check out Oasis-it looks very promising. I watched "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" yesterday, and it was, as the title says marvelous! I hope it gets picked up. Since "The Legend of Master Legend" is only 30 minutes, I may give it a try. I haven't filled out the survey yet-I want to watch the ones I am interested in first.

If it hadn't been for two small children busting into their dad's BBC interview, the Supergirl/Flash musical would be the funnest thing I've seen so far this year.

Ha, love it!

A little off topic, but if you have Turner Classic Movies, they are showing a big marathon of classic monster/horror films, mostly from the 30s and 40s. The original King Kong is on now  ;D

Oh, a lot of us have been there  ;)

Right now enjoying The Thing from Another World. (It amuses me that John Carpenter was 3 years old when this came out.) If anyone and their DVR isn't on this already it's not too late for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Nosferatu, the original Cat People, the first Hammer Horror Dracula film, plus the original Frankenstein, Mummy and Wolf Man.

I'd say I'm totally not geeking out right now, but you all know better.

We stuck around and watched Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Seen Thing from Another Planet many times so went to bed. Yep, Carpenter loved that one. In addition to The Thing, he paid homage to it in Halloween too.

I had hoped to catch up on Star Wars Rebels today, been hearing good things. But TCM is still making it impossible. Right now the the first Pink Panther is on, then Arsene Lupin (1932), The Haunting (1963) and the completely insane Japanese movie House (1977.)

What's the word on the new 24? Worth getting into assuming TCM gives me a break?
