Since we talked all about our conventional adventures yesterday, I didn't get a chance to talk about this year's Fall TV shows that I'll be watching. So I get to do it now! Woooo!
When this show debuted, I was immediately interested. I love me some Batman, so seeing this "origin story" of sorts was definitely on my list. It started slow, but business picked up (especially last year). I was worried that it would meet an abrupt end, but I am glad they are getting one final season to wrap their story. It looks like we'll finally meet The Dark Knight!
I have been watching this show from the beginning and it has always made me laugh. Even though I grew up in the next decade, I can appreciate the references and movie tributes. This Wednesday, the crew tackles Sixteen Candles for Adam's birthday. If past episodes are any indication, this should be wonderful!
Much like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a superhero show starring a cast of unknown actors was a big hit in our house. I know that Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker are "names," but most of the mutants were not. I keep saying that this show might make more sense if we'd seen X-Men: Apocalypse, but that's still sitting on my hard drive unwatched. Still, the story this year should be great - mutants vs mutants!
We randomly found this on Hulu last spring, and I think we finished the first season in two days. Glenn Howerton crushes it as a philosophy professor-turned biology teacher who uses his students to get back at the people who have wronged him. Patton Oswalt is great as the principal, and the kids are hilarious. I am excited to see what wacky schemes the class gets up to this year!
Splitting Up Together
This quietly became a favorite show of mine last year. I admit I started watching this because it starred Jenna Fischer (yeah, Pam!), but I grew to really enjoy it. I didn't know a lot of the cast, but they have been delightful carrying out a neat premise: co-parenting with your ex-spouse. What could possibly go wrong? Catch the new season Tuesday, October 16 on ABC!
Last Man Standing
I've talked about this on the show, so I won't go too deep here. But I am very excited that this gang is back. And by the time it comes on Friday, I will be all caught up on Season 6! Woooo!
My supervisor sent me the trailer for this show, and I am interested to see this story. After a turbulent flight lands safely, the passengers and crew are relieved. But in those few hours of panic, the world aged five and a half years. What happened? How will these passengers re-enter a world that presumed them dead? Will any of them have special powers? Find out Monday at 10 on NBC!
I remember always laughing at this show when it was on, even if I was too young to really get all of the jokes. So I am looking forward to seeing this reboot - someone call Dan Quayle!
