Hellcats is truly awful
The new television season sort of started last week with the series premieres of Hellcats (barf) and Nikita (cool) on The CW and Terriers (good for Veronica Mars fans!) on FX, but really kicks into gear next week, when new series start popping up all over the place. I gotta tell you: there’s a lot that appeal to me. Sure, I’m glad that Glee is back (but I could really do without Artie or Finn rapping, know what I’m saying?), but so many new shows look awesome that I’m not sure how I’m gonna fit my life around them!
Shockingly enough, ABC seems to have the most interesting line-up this season: No Ordinary Family, a show about superheroes (!) doing their day-to-day thing, the courtroom drama with a twist The Whole Truth, which shows both the prosecution AND the defense as they prepare for trial. My Generation satisfies the narcissist in every Gen Y-er, being a faux-documentary about a group of people who graduated high school in 2000 (I’m sure you’ve seen a preview if you’ve gone to the movies at all in the past two months). Finally, Detroit 1-8-7 has an opportunity to restore ABC’s former cop show glory with a gritty look at Detroit and the homicide detectives and people who live there. I’m not one for cop shows, but hey—sounds interesting!
The aforementioned Terriers on FX is an excellent offbeat P.I. show, similar in tone to the late, great Veronica Mars. Blue Bloods, a new cop show on CBS, stars Tom Selleck and has been getting great buzz. Finally, the new show I’m most excited for? Most looking forward to? Can’t wait ‘til Halloween to see? AMC’s The Walking Dead. YES. ZOMBIES ON YOUR TV SCREEN. Based on the comic book of the same name, The Walking Dead tells the story of life after a zombie apocalypse. Check out the trailer below, and tell me it is not the most awesome thing you’ve seen! Hooray for fall!
