It is less than a month until Fall TV really kicks into gear. If you are like me, then you like to watch at least the pilot episode of every new TV show. And believe me, it is a lot of work. Not the hard kind of work - but that type of work that is incredibly fun, yet it takes a long time. If you are not like me, then you are lucky. You can just wait for the reviews to come in, and then watch whatever looks like it has a chance of making it.
Either way, here are three ways you can start preparing yourself for Fall TV now.
1. Do Your Research
Another good option is from TVLine. It doesn't have show descriptions as part of the same article, but it does provide a nice calendar. The calendar starts September 8th and doesn't end until October 25th, making this a great scheduling tool.
If you aren't interested in watching all new shows, you can find several lists of most anticipated shows. In fact, my last blog post is a list of MY most anticipated shows. Here is another from TV.com. Here is a Ranker list, which surprisingly puts Dracula before Shield. Personally, I don't think that list is very good, but who knows?
2. Catch Up
Here is a list of shows available on Netflix, and why you should consider watching them:
Once Upon A Time
And, like Once Upon A Time, it is getting a spin-off in the Originals, which is on many people's most anticipated shows list. So give it a shot; it is pretty addicting.
There are many, many more available on Netflix. These are just some of my suggestions.
Here are some that are already available:
- The Goldbergs, ABC
- Trophy Wife, ABC
- Back in the Game, ABC
- Ironside, NBC
- Welcome to the Family, NBC
- The Mindy Project, Fox (though technically not a pilot, it is the season two premiere, and it is excellent)
And just keep your eyes peeled for more to be posted soon! I will update when I find more.
