Such a busy time of year when it comes to new shows.

Atlantis
It's pretty much as trashy as I expected. I just can't decide yet if charmingly or annoyingly so. The 'great destiny' part has me extremely cautious. Not sure I'm willing to deal with that again.
Unless I find myself bored on my weekends, I think I'll wait and maybe catch up sometime.
Oh, but if you're into gratuitous shirtless scenes you might want to check it out. It's pretty good with that.

Witches of East End
It could just as well be called Charmed reloaded. Even the house looks so similar that I'm not entirely certain it isn't the same one. It's not the exact same story. There are only two sisters, and their mother is still around. But it is the same idea of these sisters not knowing they are witches because their mother put them under a spell so they could grow up normal until, when they are in their 20s, something happens and they find out and have to start battling evil and curses while trying to continue with their normal lives. And as much as I loved Charmed back in the days, I don't think I need another version if it.

The Tomorrow People
You know the story: Troubled but kind teenager figures out that all his problems stem from him growing up not knowing he has special powers. He is found by a group of people just like him, who live underground and are each other's substitute family. There is an organisation hunting them while claiming they only act in everyone's best interest. Troubled teenager turns out to be some sort of chosen one and there are "unexpected" blood relations making everything even more complicated. So far it all looks very cliché, but there is always potential that this show may take some interesting turns once it has found its footing. So if I find the time, I might stick around to see where it goes.

Once Upon A Time In Wonderland
It's very obvious very quickly that this is a OUAT spin-off. It's actually even sillier than the original show. But it's fun silly, and Wonderland is such a great place to play in.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
It's exactly what you expect. I'll need a few more episodes to really get to know and properly warm up to the characters, but I'm very happy to have this show on my list for this season, and I hope it gets to stick around and fully explore its potential. Because it does have a lot of potential, and with the name Joss Whedon attached to it, I have little doubt that this potential will be put to work sooner rather than later. Welcome to Level 7.

Hostages
Promising start. It's not exactly my type of show but the pilot has convinced me to give it at least a few more episodes. I think the most interesting aspect is that you don't quite know if the hostage-takers are bad guys or somewhat good guys with questionable methods. Right now I'm leaning towards the latter but that's something only time can tell when, hopefully, things start to get more clear.

The Blacklist
Another one that's pretty good but I'm not sure it'll make the cut because there are just too many other shows I like more. My main problem is that I find Reddington rather annoying and see no chemistry between him and Elisabeth. Unfortunately that's one of the main keystones this show tries to build on. Then again, I do like Elisabeth. Not sure if that's enough.

Lucky 7
I don't know. It's and interesting idea, it's kinda sweet, and the characters feel real but it's just not for me I guess. I had a few "d'awww" moments but I can't really see myself getting invested in the show or the characters.

Masters of Sex
It's an interesting topic and I really like how sex positive the show is, but I don't think I want to watch an entire (or even several) season(s) about it. Personally, I feel it would work better as a movie.

First pilot of the season.

It's not perfect and it doesn't re-imagine television, but it is scary, it's gory, it's funny; it has a strong female lead; it has a fish out of the water male lead who brings both comedy - without being treated as a joke - and a unique perspective; it has magic and ancient evil; it has a "Book of Revelation" based mythology and it is definitely going on my to watch list.

Because [livejournal.com profile] rinnus complained that I'm not doing these posts anymore, and because there are a few new very promising shows this summer.

Twisted
An ABCFamily show that has quite a bit of a Pretty Little Liars feel to it. The basic story is, that 16-year-old Danny returns to his home town after he has spend five years in juvenile prison for killing his aunt. No one knows why he did it, and he is not telling anyone. so when there is another murder in town he very quickly becomes the prime suspect.

Under The Dome
A small town suddenly finds itself trapped under an invisible force field. No one can get out, no one can get in, and some people seem to have a few secrets. Whether those secrets have anything to do with this mysterious event remains to be seen.
The show's concept kinda feels like something we have all seen before but that's no necessarily a bad thing. After all, that doesn't mean that you have any idea what's really going on in this version of the story.
It also has Colin Ford and, guys, he's all grown up.

Siberia
Siberia is about a reality tv show gone wrong; mostly because they picked the wrong place, a place were strange things are happening. It was supposed to be a game, until the strange noises started and people ended up dead.
Again, not exactly a new concept, but entertaining. If you've seen The River: It reminds me a lot of that show.
gwaevalarin: (Crowley)
It's always weird when May comes and goes and my ridiculously long tv schedule is suddenly mostly empty. But there are still a few shows on my list that are currently taking up the task of getting me through the summer:

Teen Wolf, Saving Hope, and Continuum )

2. I will give you a letter.
3. Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each. The characters can be from books, movies, or TV shows.

Winter seems like the perfect time of year for the warmth and fuzziness (and sometimes raw sexual tension) of some of tv's best couples, don't you think?

I just watched the pilot of The Fades.
The entire soul, Heaven, death, moving on (or ascending, as they call it on the show) or being stuck plays right into my interests. The apocalyptic prophecies look pretty awesome too, even though the music they use for them is rather annoying.
Unfortunately, a few good scenes aside, the characters and the storytelling isn't too great so far. But with such an interesting topic, I'm going to give it a few more episodes.
Natalie Dormer, on the other hand, is simply awesome. Even if it doesn't get better, I'm seriously considering watching the show solely for her.

Other pilots I have watched so far this season:
Ringer didn't convince me after the pilot, but the second episode has me a lot more intrigued. Still not entirely sure if I will continue watching, but there is a good chance.

The Secret Circle is rather predictable and The CW-ish. But it's entertaining enough.

Did you know that our favourite decadent angel, shapeshifter and soon to be vampire hunter is also a vampire himself?

Me neither, until I looked through Sebastian's filmography and found a show I had never heard of. It turned out to be a web based show.

It's funny, it has Sebastian, what more do you want? )
