New shows we might check out next season (still deciding)

  • Mom, CBS: This is a Chuck Lorre sitcom, but we're considering it because of Alison Janney and Anna Faris, two great, funny actresses who are definitely up to carrying this kind of show. It looks better than Two Broke Girls, the only other CBS comedy we can remotely tolerate. We also like that the show is about women and probably won't have as many of the disgusting "boy's club" jokes for players that Two-and-a-Half-Men would have.
  • The Crazy Ones, CBS: It's nice to see James Wolk again after the unjust cancelation of Lone Star. Also, this pilot has Kelly Clarkson! We might watch it for her alone. We don't hate Robin Williams either. We feel like we'll get sick of this show quick, but we might watch the first couple of episodes, if we have time.
  • Intelligence, CBS: We like the idea of Josh Holloway back on TV even if this show is a total rip-off of Chuck. And it is. Meghan Ory is in this too though, and it looks fun and action-packed. We'll watch it to see if it has its own voice. If it's not boring, we'll probably stick with it.
  • The Black List, NBC: We'll probably wait for word of mouth on this one. It looks completely unoriginal. It's like Se7en, Silence of the Lambs, The Following, Hannibal, and plenty of other cop shows where a bad guy helps one or a few cops.
  • The Michael J Fox Show, NBC: Who doesn't love Michael J Fox? He's making light of himself and his condition on this show. The preview looked pretty charming and a little funny, which is good for a preview. It would be unAmerican to not give Marty McFly a few episodes, wouldn't it?
  • Crisis, NBC: We want to see what got Gillian Anderson (X-Files) back on TV. The show itself doesn't look great. Nor does it look bad.
  • Super Fun Night, ABC: We liked Rebel Wilson in Pitch Perfect.
  • Resurrection, ABC: It looks weird. We like that.
  • Surviving Jack, Fox: We'll watch a few for Christopher Meloni, but we're not gonna force it.
  • Brooklyn Nine Nine, Fox: We like Andy Samberg's songs. Maybe his show will be funny too? Maybe not, but we'll want to see for ourselves.
  • Almost Human, Fox: We're watching this for the JJ Abrams brand. He's brought us a few good things (and a few boring things). We're not enthused about the robot angle though. Robots are not people, and thus they are not characters and don't interest us much.
  • Gang Related, Fox: Terry O'Quinn has earned a lot of cred with us, so we'll watch at least three if we're not doing anything else.
  • Rake, Fox: We can't tell if this is good from the trailer, so the only way to know is to watch at least an episode ourselves. If it isn't good, we'll watch the Australian version, which we hear is great.


  1. Am a huge fan of the Australian Rake series, and the second season is just as fabulous as the first. But I find the casting of Greg Kinnear as the lead to be an odd choice. Not a fan of his work, even when stuck on Matt Damon.

    I'm going to give a whirl and see if it is as embarrassing to watch like the US remake of Kath & Kim.


    1. I liked Greg in "As Good As It Gets," but that's it.

      Australia can make some real good stuff. I've seen a few of their movies I liked.
