Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on September 4, 2013

Fox will start it’s fall season on Monday the 16th, so I guess it’s time to figure out what the hell I’ll be watching this year. Tuesday looks crowded but it will thin out once a few of those shows turn out to be lousy. Wednesday and Sunday, however, will be disasters throughout the fall, no matter what. Which is just mean, since Sunday is the furthest removed from Friday/Saturday, when I’ll likely have time to catch up, and Wednesday is new comics day.

Info from here, here, here.


8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30 10:00 10:30
Almost Human* Sleepy Hollow The Blacklist
We Are Men** Castle

* – Bones will be in this timeslot until after baseball.
** – This will probably be awful, but I like Tony Shalhoub and Kal Penn.


8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30 10:00 10:30
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Trophy Wife* Lucky 7
Dads* Brooklyn Nine-Nine* Person of Interest
Sons of Anarchy

* – These all look pretty lousy, but again I like the casts.


8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30 10:00 10:30
Arrow The Tomorrow People* It’s Always Sunny The League
Back in the Game Law & Order: SVU South Park Key & Peele
Modern Family

* – Probably awful, but scifi and Peyton List is enough to get me to try it out.

Also, The Bridge keeps running for a while and I think Mythbusters might start up at some point soon (but I can’t confirm that anywhere), so this could be a nightmare, scheduling-wise.


8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30 10:00 10:30
Parks and Rec The Millers The Crazy Ones The Michael J. Fox Show Elementary
White Collar Covert Affairs*

* – Weirdly, Covert Affairs runs for 2 more weeks on Tuesdays, then takes a 3 week break, then starts up on Thursdays for like 6 episodes. Though I am pretty well checked-out of the series, I could easily drop it if all these other shows turn out to be good.


8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30 10:00 10:30
Bones Raising Hope Enlisted** Dracula*

* – Probably awful, but it does have some hot actresses in it.
** – This apparently got bumped to January


Squat, except for SNL


8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30 10:00 10:30
The Simpsons Family Guy American Dad Betrayal*
Homeland Masters of Sex
Lost Girl Hello Ladies
The Walking Dead

* – It has the hot girl who played Kelsey Grammer’s junkie daughter on Boss, but will probably suck.

    […] breakfast. What a hilarious and never-thought-of-before situation! So, anyway, I can cross one off the schedule […]

    […] Sleepy Hollow is like a combination Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle, in which Ichabod Crane takes a nap and wakes up in the 21st century, still pursuing (and pursued by) the headless horseman. Which is not that interesting a concept to me. There was one scene where it looks like no one’s in a room, but it’s just that the headless horseman is sitting in a chair facing away, and since he has no head you can’t see him at all. Which was pretty clever. But otherwise nothing inspired me to watch episode 2, not even the Bones cross-promotion where Hodgins was excited to DVR Sleepy Hollow. The cast for the pilot is pretty solid, but two of the actors I liked were killed in the pilot. Normally I’m a fan of character death because I’m a heartless bastard, but when you kill off your most interesting people that just ruins any chance of me liking your show. So I can cross another show off my list. […]

    […] a good time to get out on a show I’d been losing interest in for a while). This has left me a schedule with lots of holes in it (Monday 9-10, Tuesday 9-10, Thursday 8:30-9, Sunday 8:30-9) and then tons […]
