    New Fall Shows

    Just wondering how others are viewing the newest batch of fall shows on tv.

    Here are the ones I've checked out

    CBS

    We are Men - decent cast but not sure if it has staying power

    Mom - like it, Glad Anna Faris is doing network tv, thought she would be pigeon holed as the scary movie chick the rest of her career.

    Crazy Ones - Robin Williams is very good but not really liking Sarah Michelle Gellar's character

    The ones I have yet to see are We are the Millers and new Michael j Fox show. Heard that the fox show isn't very good.

    Re: New Fall Shows

    Brooklyn Nine Nine (Fox) - always like the silliness of Andy Samburg

    The Blacklist (NBC) - James Spader is good. 1st 2 shows have been intriguing. Haven't totally decided yet.

    Hostages (CBS) - Not sure yet. Only seen 1st 2 shows. Not sure where it's going yet.

    Crazy Ones/Michael J Fox Show - 1st couple shows of each have been OK. Unsure of staying power in long run.

    I'm digging We Are Men right now. But solely because I am recently divorced and can relate.

    Pretty funny so far but I can see it tailing off after a season or so.

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine is great. Please start watching it so it doesn't get cancelled. It's not their fault it got saddled with a piece of **** like Dads as its lead-in.

    Re: New Fall Shows

    Brooklyn 99 has promise. Terry Crews steals the show IMO.

    Dads is o.k. I don't see myself sticking with it unless it really picks up on the funny.

    Caught the last 10 minutes of The Goldbergs last night. Will try to watch it again. I always liked Adam Goldberg and Jeff Garlin plays his dad.

    Re: New Fall Shows

    Completely agree on Blacklist love James Spader as an actor and was made for this role.









    I realized that we are just tough young men. Resilient, really, Morris adds. A lot of people probably would have tucked their tail and tried to make moves but this group stuck together. Everybody is on the same page and that really told me a lot about the type of season we can have.

    Re: New Fall Shows

    Watched Dads the other night. Awful and has a laugh track to boot. How do you not capitalize on Giovani Ribisi and Seth Green? Awful.

    I do like Sleep Hollow, The Goldbergs (80s stuff cracks me up), Hello Ladies (HBO), and SHIELD. I havent really bought in to much else yet.

    Re: New Fall Shows

    The only new network show I've checked out so far is Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, which I'm enjoying a lot so far.

    My sister really enjoys Brookly 999, so I might have to give that a gander, although right now I don't have a whole lot of time for TV watching.

    I have watched "Hello Ladies" on HBO, pretty funny stuff so far.

    The Goldbergs is decent, I'll stick with it for a bit.

    I had high hopes for Dad's as well with the cast, but it is god awful. I may give it one more chance, but I don't watch much tv so it will more than likely get cut.

    The Black List is solid so far, only seen the first two though.

    Haven't seen We are Men or nine nine.

    Still mad they cancelled don't trust the b, that was pretty funny.

    By relying on all the cheap, lazy (and I'm assuming a little racist?) humor that keeps the Family Guy dollars rolling in?

    I watched Agents of Shield for the first time the other night. I enjoyed it quite a bit. I haven't got to see any episodes of Sleepy Hollow yet, but may watch a few episodes online tonight to see what I think.

    Ha, yeah, forgot about Brooklyn, I like that one too. Its mindless cheese humor. I dig it.

    Hello Ladies isnt necessarily gut busting humor, but I love the awkwardness of the main character trying to score. Reminds me a bit of Family Tree which is also a good HBO show.

    The first episode of Sleepy Hollow may lose you a bit, but the following ones get you hooked.

    I've only seen an episode and a half but Sleepy Hollow is now on the DVR along with The Black List. Fox has got a solid track record with "sci-fi"ish shows so I have high hopes for Sleepy Hollow
