AHS, The Walking Dead and Arrow

The three series I’m most excited for, this fall.

At this point, I have to recant my assessment of Revolution as “interesting and good” because it really, really isn’t. The lead actress makes me want to burn my PC and everything around it, just to be sure, every time she’s got screen time. And she’s got a LOT of screen time. Continue reading

Oh, Merlin!

BBC One’s season 5 premiere of Merlin was incendiary! Awesome! Amazeeeebaaaalllssssss!

From the looks of the first episode, it’s going to be a better, very interesting – maybe Merlin finally confesses to Arthur? – season. It’s darker, sexier and we get more of the Arthurian legends and mythology.  You can easily see that the characters are more grown up and there’s a slight change in the relationship between Merlin and Arthur, too.

Merlin’s no longer a mere servant who walks by Arthur’s horse, he’s a trusted friend. The way these two tease and mock each other is hilarious.

I noticed better special effects as well.

Morgana is to be feared, as always – she’s such a nasty, delicious, great villain, and Gwen looked positively gorgeous in that velvety red gown. So glad we’ll get to see more of her, what with being a queen now.  And Mordred! Ohh, isn’t he a creepy one? Lovely!

If it were possible, I’d watch all the episodes right now. Now, now, now.

 

Fall 2012: New Series

Obviously not all of the new tv shows part of the 2012-13 network TV season have premiered, with some scheduled as late as Midseason, but I’m going to update the list as they come out so keep checking back. 

American Horror Story Asylum

Who here is excited about the incoming second season of AHS? I know I am!

The show is set to premiere on Oct. 17 and this time the story will take place in an insane asylum with nothing to do whatsoever with the Harmon house or the story line of the first season.

Jessica Lange is one of the main characters and she’s playing a twisted nun, Sister Jude.  Zachary Quinto, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson are all coming back as main cast members. We’re also going to see Adam Levine ( Maroon 5) . For now, IMDb is crediting him only for the first episode so it’s unclear if his character is there to stay or not.

In case you haven’t seen it yet, take a look at one of the first promos:

 

Don’t forget, Oct. 17 on FX!

 

*I don’t own nor do I claim ownership of either the promotional poster or video.

True Blood Season 6

Aaaand it’s official!

HBO has renewed True Blood for yet another season. Alan Ball is stepping down though, due to other projects he’ll be busy with for both HBO and Cinemax. He is staying as executive producer only.

Seasons’ 5 premiere had aprox. 6.7 mil viewers with roughly 4.5 for the rest of the episodes so far aired. If that wasn’t reason enough for a renewal, I don’t know what would’ve been.

Anger Management Tv Show

“Charlie Sheen died…and went to FX!” Winning!

If you were a fan of Two and a Half Men, the original Wall Street and know that Hot Shots I and part Deux are two of the best comedies ever ( add Top Secret and Airplane and you’re set), then you’ll definitely want to tune in tomorrow, June 28, to watch Anger Management’s premiere. Continue reading
