Your Fall Television Line-up (S&T 10/1)
If you know me by now, you know that I'm a T.V. snob. This is what I'm excited for in October.
+Once Upon a Time. I've discovered that OUAT is a show I have to binge-watch, not watch week by week. I gave up on season 4 by last December and finally caught up on Netflix this week. My intelligence can be questioned because, admittedly, I get distracted with my multi-tasking while watching and I seriously thought the season was over at episode 20 and then a new episode started and I thought it was looping back to the beginning of the season and then I thought "oh, I don't remember this" and assumed I'd been doing something else of the multitasking variety when I'd "watched" it the first time. Well, no. There were two more episodes. Which I was delighted with. What a nice surprise for someone who wasn't paying attention.
Anyway, the new season, season 5, began on Sunday on ABC.
+The Leftovers. Did you watch this last summer? We really enjoyed it. I love Justin Theroux and I think it will constantly keep you guessing. Season 2 starts this Sunday on HBO.
+The Walking Dead. I have a prevailing theory that if you don't watch TWD by now, you probably don't have an interest in such things and probably never will. Season 1 is still my favorite (long live Shane), but I do like to see where the characters and the story go with each season. Fear the Walking Dead is something Scott has been watching (it's a spin-off) and I'm not caught up on that as of now.
Season 6 starts on Sunday, October 11th on AMC.
+The Affair. On Showtime. We became enthralled with this saga last summer. I'm glad they moved it to fall. If you're interested in a stellar cast, telling stories from multiple POVs, check it out.
+Homeland. This show is why we still have DirecTV. No DirecTV = No Showtime = No Homeland.
We love Homeland. Season 5 premieres Sunday.
+Grimm. I'm currently watching season 4 on Amazon Prime so I can be ready for season 5 on NBC on October 30th. Exciting times..
Anyway, yes, if you haven't watched Grimm yet, give it a try. And make yourself stick with it for at least 6 episodes. That's how long it took for me to like it. It's addictive. Scott doesn't like it and that's because he didn't follow my 6-episode-theory.
What are YOU watching this fall? Excited for any shows to come back?
