Time to have a look at the upcoming Fall season for genre fans and It looks better than last year.

In chronological order.





Nikita [New]

I must say that’s one insane chair and it is probably like the action in this remake of Nikita.

When she was a deeply troubled teenager, Nikita (Maggie Q) was rescued from death row by a secret U.S. agency known only as Division, who faked her execution and told her she was being given a second chance to start a new life and serve her country. What they didn’t tell her was that she was being trained as a spy and assassin. Throughout her grueling training at Division, Nikita never lost her humanity, even falling in love with a civilian. When her fiancé was murdered, Nikita realized she had been betrayed and her dreams shattered by the only people she thought she could trust, so she did what no one else before her had been able to do: she escaped. Now, after three years in hiding, Nikita is seeking retribution and making it clear to her former bosses that she will stop at nothing to expose and destroy their covert operation.

Premieres: Thursday, September 9 (CW)

Vampire Diaries [Returning]

Picking up on the same night as last season’s finale, Elena  arrives home to a nightmare as she discovers Uncle John’s and Jeremy’s fate. At the hospital, Sheriff Forbes is comforted by Matt , Bonnie  and Damon while she waits to hear if Caroline will survive the car accident. After a confusing conversation with Elena about the night’s events, Damon is the first to realize that Katherine has returned. Katherine’s arrival sends Stefan and Damon on a path to find out what she wants, why she’s back, and how much of a threat she is to the people they love. Meanwhile, still reeling from his father’s death, Tyler is surprised when his charming and mysterious uncle, Mason Lockwood, arrives to console the family.

There will be werevolves …

This is a show I record and watch later when the season is over. But I am not sure I will do that this season. I want to know what happens.

Premiere: Thursday, September 9 (CW)

Merlin [Returning]

It has been a year since Lady Morgana disappeared and no trace of her has been found when season 3 begins. She returns under mysterious circumstances and soon the king is having hallucinations; an old enemy attacks and Arthur has to take charge.

Merlin starts to suspect Morgana but she and her evil sister are to fast for him. They capture him and bind him with magic. In desperation he calls the great dragon.

Merlin is a great series and 13 new episodes is better than usual for a BBC production.

Premiere: Saturday, September 11 (BBC One)

Lost Girl [New]

A new sexy supernatural drama about Bo, a Succubus who feeds on the sexual energy of humans. She is the Girl Next doors until she drained her boyfriend to death in their first sexual encounter. Now she has hit the road alone and afraid. Bo’s succubus nature tangles her in a sexy, romantic love-triangle with Dyson, a shape-shifting homicide detective, and Lauren, a human doctor who has found a way through science to help give Bo the sexual self-control she’s been aching for. With the help of her human sidekick, Kenzi, and Dyson, a sexy police detective, Bo takes on a challenge every week helping a Fae or human client who comes to her to solve a mystery, or to right a wrong.

Another supernatural show with nudity and sex is my first thoughts but I can live with that. The concept sounds interesting with a Succubus and the Fae but this in-between kind of detective series have been done before with various degrees of success. Blood Ties where Peter Mohan was Executive Producer comes to mind. It was cheesy but had a certain appeal. The crew and cast make this look like Mutant X the reunion. Cheesy with sex and nudity, count me in but I don’t expect high quality.

Read more about it in my Lost Girl post.

Premieres: Sunday, September 12 (Showcase, Canada)

The Event [New]

What if there was a cover-up so big that even the President was on a need-to-know basis? And what if some average guy stumbled upon the truth – a secret so powerful it could literally change the course of humanity? You think that guy would stand a chance of survival?

The buzz at Comic Con was very positive and that talk for the Event but on paper it looks like yet another fast paced action adventure with character development be damned. Some sources that saw it at Comic Con have said the pilot was fun to watch but all over the place and we have to wait on episode two to get any answers. Much rides on the characters and how much fun it will be to watch. I will give the Event 3-5 episodes to convince me. I am looking forward to check it out but it’s nothing I jump up and down for.

The event is SPOILER! [an alien invasion] at least according to nymag.

Premiere: Monday, September 20 (NBC)

Chuck [Returning]

Chuck will take up his father’s secret work, whatever that is and to search for his mother who will be played by the iconic Linda Hamilton. He promised Ellie to stop being a spy after he stopped Shaw so he has to keep it a secret from her and probably even from Sarah at first. Morgan is the first one he is going to involve according to sources inside the show.

There are many awesome new and returning guest stars lined up. Dolph Lundgren and Olivia Munn will guest star in the premiere.

Read more about the new season in my Chuck Season 4 post.

Premieres: Monday, September 20 (NBC)

Undercovers [New]

What is it with NBC and spy shows? Do they need another, they have Chuck. It looks like fun CSI-level scifi action.

Outwardly, Steven Bloom and his wife, Samantha, are a typical married couple who own and operate a small catering company in Los Angeles – with help from Samantha’s easily frazzled handful of a sister, Lizzy. Secretly, the duo were two of the best spies the CIA had ever known, until they fell in love on the job five years ago and retired.

When fellow spy and good friend Leo Nash goes missing while on the trail of a Russian arms dealer, the Blooms are reinstated by boss and agency liaison, Carlton Shaw  to locate and rescue Nash. Following leads that take them to cities spanning the globe, Steven and Samantha quickly realize that perhaps this supercharged, undercover lifestyle provides exactly the kind of excitement and romance that their marriage has been missing.

Premiere: Wednesday, September 22 (NBC)

Fringe [Returning]

A little Fringe science is never a bad thing. I am a big fan of this show. At the end of season two the team returned to their original universe. But they don’t know they have the wrong Olivia with them. I am all psyched about having another Fringe team to get to know now.

The first half of the new season will be every other episode in the alternative universe. It starts with Olivia imprisoned in the other universe. Spoiler fairies also told me that it will take until the mid season finale before Bolivia will be unmasked.

New this season is Amy Madigan in the pivotal role of Olivia’s mother. And in episode 2 a powerful female government agent becomes and adversary to the Fringe team for 3-4 episodes.

Premiere: Thursday, September 23 (Fox)

$#*! My Dad Says [New]

$#*! MY DAD SAYS (pronounced “Bleep My Dad Says”), based on the popular Twitter feed by Justin Halpern, stars Emmy Award winner William Shatner as Ed Goodson, a forthright and opinionated dad who relishes expressing his unsolicited and often wildly politically incorrect observations to anyone within earshot. Nobody is safe from Ed’s rants, including his sons, Henry, a struggling writer-turned-unpaid blogger; and Vince, the meek half of a husband/wife real estate duo with domineering Bonnie. When Henry finds he can no longer afford to pay rent, Ed reveals a soft spot and invites Henry to move in with him. Henry agrees, knowing that the verbal assault will not abate and now there will be no escape. Describing their father/son relationship is tricky, but Ed will easily come up with a few choice words.

Thursday, September 23 (CBS)

The Big Bang Theory [Returning]

I can’t wait on the return of ‘Beautiful Minds’. They left us a real cliffhanger last episode – Sheldon meets a girl!

TBBT used to light up My Mondays but this season it moved to Thursdays.

In the premiere The Robotic Manipulation – Penny finds herself along for the ride on Sheldon’s first date ever; while Wolowitz finds a new use for a robotic arm.

Premiere: Thursday, September 23 (CBS)

Supernatural [Returning]

The sixth season of the show will focus on the brothers’ relationship. The season will steer towards the format of the early seasons with “lots of meat-and-potatoes closed-ended episodes, and…a season-long story arc to weave in”. Heaven and Hell are now in “complete disarray”, forcing Sam and Dean to reunite to “beat back the rising tide of creatures and demon-spawn” that “roam across a lawless and chaotic landscape”.

Misha Collins will return as series regular Castiel, as will Jim Beaver as Bobby Singer. Mitch Pileggi will make multiple appearances as Sam and Dean’s grandfather. The recurring role of Christian, the maternal cousin of Sam and Dean, was given to Corin Nemec; he is described as “capable, calm under pressure, and very good at his job”. Kim Rhodes will return as Sheriff Jody Mills, as will Fredric Lehne as Azazel.

Premiere: Friday, September 24 (CW)

Medium [Returning]

Medium is kind of solid entertainment and I like Allison and her normal family with normal family problems. Beside all the supernatural stuff. Medium returns with a ‘Freaky Friday’ premiere this year.

I usually watch this as a filler when I have time.

“Bring Your Daughter to Work Day” – When they have the same dream about a missing homeless man who is the subject of Allison’s most recent case, Bridgette and Allison swap personalities, causing mayhem at home, at school and with the investigation.

Premiere:Friday, September 24 (CBS)

Smallville [Returning]

Time for the final season of Smallville, or so they say.

“Season 10 promises the classic reuniting of the timeless romance between Clark and Lois, and brings Clark face-to-face with his destiny as he overcomes his final trials and forges the iconic identity that will be known for all time.”

There will be lots of characters from the previous nine seasons coming back for a session.

Smallville is a show I usually record and watch when the season is over.

Premiere: Friday, September 24 (CW)

No Ordinary Family [New]

This looks like extra cheesy entertainment and I love Michael Chiklis.

The Powells are about to go from ordinary to extraordinary. After 16 years of marriage, Jim and Stephanie’s relationship lacks the spark it once had, and their family life now consists of balancing work and their two children, leaving little time for family bonding. During a family vacation set up by Jim in an attempt to reconnect, their plane crashes into the Amazon River. But this is where the fun starts for the Powells, as they soon discover that something’s not quite right. Each of them now possesses unique and distinct superpowers. But saving and savoring their family life will be equally important, as they try to find purpose for their new powers and embark on a journey to find out what defines and unifies them. The Powells are a totally relatable family who happen to be a little bit amazing.

Premiere: Tuesday, September 28 (ABC)

Stargate Universe [Returning]

Those three are going to be joined by Lt James and at least one Lucian hottie (Elli’s new love interest) for season 2 of SGU.

Destiny isn’t just out there to boldly go where no Ancient has gone before. It  has a destination of cosmic importance, so important that it overshadows the desire for the crew to get home, and that by fulfilling this new mission, it may in fact allow them to get home.

At least the first episodes will be dark for Young and the original crew of destiny. Young goes to a dark place before emerging stronger. The young members of the crew has to step up and take more responsibility.

Dr. Rodney McKay and Richard Woolsey from SGA will make an appearance. Robert Knepper (Heroes, Prison Break) and Julie McNiven (Supernatural, Mad Men) will guest star as members of the Lucian alliance.

Premieres: Tuesday, September 28 (Syfy)

Sanctuary [Returning]

The giant earth shattering spider slash hot indian chick cliffhanger of last season will get its resolution soon.

Looks like the new season will center around the search for a lost city Dr. Helena Magnus father left clues about.

It is conveniently paired with SGU this season.

Premiere: Tuesday, September 28 (Syfy)

Human Target [Returning]

It looks like they listened to me last year, they needed more females.

Picking up from the heart-pounding first season cliffhanger, Season Two of Human Target kicks off with a bang as Chance and Guerrero race to rescue their kidnapped associate, Winston. Vowing to retire from the security business, Chance is lured back to work by billionaire philanthropist Ilsa Pucci (new series regular Indira Varma), who needs his protection after the mysterious murder of her husband. While on assignment, the team encounters Ames(new cast member Janet Montgomery), a beautiful, chameleon-like thief who has a past connection to Winston.

Based on the DC Comics comic book and graphic novel, Human Target is a full-throttle action drama centered on a unique personal security expert hired to shield those in danger from an imminent threat that cannot be solved through normal means of protection.

Premiere: Friday, October 1 (Fox)

The Walking Dead [New]

The Walking Dead is a six-episode series based on the comic book written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics.

The Walking Dead tells the story of life following a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, traveling in search of a safe and secure home. Andrew Lincoln (Love ActuallyTeachersStrike Back) will portray the lead role of Rick Grimes while actor Jon Bernthal (The PacificThe Ghost Writer) will portray the character Shane, who worked with Rick in the police department before the zombie disaster. Other cast includes Laurie Holden (The Shield), who plays Andrea, one of two sisters who join the survivors of the zombie plague, Steven Yeun as Glenn, an expert scavenger and Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break), who plays Rick’s wife Lori.

Also looks promising and I know there are many fans out there waiting for this one.

Premiere: October 31 (AMC)

Outcasts [New]

This is the one new series I am absolutely most excited about. It has been portrayed as something of a western in space and that got my juices flowing plus it is a British/American production which hopefully mean there will be some mighty unexpected stuff happening here.

A group of courageous pioneers face a unique opportunity: the chance to build a new and better future on another planet. Outcasts is an epic new eight-part drama series created by Ben Richards for BBC One/BBCA.

They are led by President Tate and his core team of Stella, Cass and Fleur – they took charge and settled here first alongside Expeditionaries Mitchell and Jack.

They are a diverse group of individuals who left their old lives behind in extraordinary circumstances; promised a second chance at life they created a society, far away from their home, friends, family… and their pasts.

Settled in the town of Forthaven on Carpathia, they are passionate about their jobs, confident of their ideals and optimistic about the future. They work hard to preserve what they’ve built on this planet they now call home, having embraced all the challenges that come with forging a new beginning.

The planet offers the possibility for both corruption and redemption; while they try to avoid the mistakes made on Earth, inevitably our heroes cannot escape the human pitfalls of love, greed, lust, loss, and a longing for those they’ve left behind.

As they continue to work and live together they come to realise this is no ordinary planet… is there a bigger purpose at work? Mystery lurks around them and threatens to risk the fragile peace of Forthaven.

We meet our characters at a moment of incredible anticipation, they’ve lost all contact with Earth but the arrival of the last known transporter signals fresh hopes and dreams. Will Stella’s husband and daughter, who she heartbreakingly left behind, be on board? Why does Tate seem anxious about one particular passenger, Julius Berger? Most nerve-wracking of all, will it land safely and bring a fresh perspective on the new world with it?

Premiere: October/November (BBC, UK), December 5 (BBCA)

That was all for now. I will update this with Midseason series like The Cape and V later. Do you have any other genre show to recommend?

May 032010
 

It is still a bit early for the networks to announce their cuts, renewals and orders but that is planed to happen mid May unless the news leak out early. Rumors last week say that Heroes has been renewed for a final season already, personally I couldn’t care less

Last weeks sad news is that Legend of the Seeker and 10 Things I Hate About You have been canceled. The later might not upset many of you but LOTS will be missed by many.

I put the videos at the end.

Monday April 3

Monday is a good day for us genre viewers in sheer quality.

Chuck vs the Role Models (NBC) takes the newlyweds into training with another married pair of Agents, but they hate each other which screws up Chuck and Sarah’s mushy minds. Meanwhile Casey is supposed to train their new agent, Morgan. I am already smiling in anticipation. [Video below]

The Big Bang Spegetti Catalyst (CBS) features Sheldon as the in between. Leonard and Penny aren’t speaking and Sheldon tries to keep them both happy which is sure to amuse, a lot.

Castle (ABC) has Food to Die for when a high profile chef is found Frozen to death in the Kitchen of a hot NY resturant. Complications ensure as Castle and the restaurant owner, an old high school girlfriend of Beckett, share an attraction. Meanwhile, Beckett’s relationship with Detective Demming continues to grow. This looks like a great episode, the whole dynamic between Beckett and Castle is what makes Castle such a enjoyable show. [Videos below]

Of the non SF series you might want to check out Romantically Challenged (ABC) or Rules of Engagement (CBS). They go to a high school reunion respective look for a surrogate mother.

Tuesday May 4

It’s sad that the genre shows on Tuesdays don’t hold as much for me as the non-genre shows do.

In V the aliens tries to win the Hearts and Minds with the creepy live aboard program, Anna invites Tyler to join. Time for the freezers? The V sends a shuttle load of deadly V trackers after the fifth column and they have to stop it before it can land, unfortunately they might have been missinformed. V is on the bubble for renewal/cancellation and I don’t care about the numbers as much as the networks do but so far V has failed to hook me in, I hope that it will soon. It worries me I couldn’t find any action shots in the promotional photos. [videos below]

Lost shows the Candidate but I am not following that show. All the fans are excited about the series finale that is coming up now in May.

In NCIS (CBS) Anthony DiNozzo finds lady trouble in Obssesion.

Glee (FOX) is about Bad Reputation as a certain list  circulate the school and Sue’s private music video of Olivia Newton-John’s classic ‘Physical’ surfaces.

Peter’s electronic monitor goes off as he chases The Good Wife (CBS) out of the apartment and her kids  are covering for him. Alicia has her job cut out for her, again. This redemption thing works so well and the talented cast is a joy. [videos below]

In Justified Raylan invest the apparent suicide of a financial wizard, Owen Carnes. The widow Caryn knows more than she is letting on, making the case hard on Raylan.

Wednesday May 5

When his father chops off his hand Deputy Tommy Conroy is reluctantly forced to take over as the new sheriff of Haplin, the Happy Town. He has to investigate the recent murder and the return of the little towns dirty little secret serial killer, the Magic Man. Meanwhile perky Henley is determined to get to the secret third floor of the Boarding house.

You might want to check out Cougar Town where they consider friends with benefits.

Thursday May 6

After last weeks ‘musical’ episode Fringe is back to normal. Peter helps local law enforcement with a serial killer investigation with ties to Newton. Meanwhile Walter have to deal with maybe having to go back to the loony bin. Someone from the ‘other side’ pay’s a visit using the Northwest Passage? I wonder if we get any Peter – Walter resolution this episode? Do you know?

Supernatural (CW) is Two Minutes to Midnight when Bobby sells his soul to Crowley to avoid the Apocalypse and the Winchesters tangle with Pestilence who puts a deadly virus on them forcing Castiel to intervene. Dean goes head to head with Death and forms an unholy alliance at a high price for himself, in the hunt for the four rings they need to put the devil back into his underworld cage. Mark Sheppard who plays Crowley is such a glorious bastard, I can see where this is heading.

FlashForward goes on my save-to-watch pile, in the hope they will be better if I watch them all together. Someone is murdering the people that think they survived their flash forward fates and Mark helps Simon track down his missing sister.

Isobel returns to Mystic Falls in Vampire Diaries (CW). Mother and daughter finally meets, but Isobel refuses to answer most of Elena’s question but reveals she isn’t going to stop at nothing to find the mysterious invention Johnathan Gilbert has been searching for. Isobel’s dangerous actions lead Stefan, Damon and Bonnie to step in and help Elena deal with the situation.

Friday May 7

Friday is still SciFi Friday, but that might change next season. Syfy has allready decided to move it’s SciFi shows to Tuesdays when they return in autumn.

SGU is about Sabotage when one of the twelve FTL drive modules on the Destiny explode due to an overload, the crew calls upon a brilliant scientist from Earth to help find a solution. Nothing about what happened to Eli, Chloe and Scott? They where stranded at the end of last episode I would like to see how that play out.

Much to Clark’s surprise Martha Kent returns to Smallville with her new boyfriend Perry White. Perry and Lois get into trouble perusing a story about the Red Queen while Clark and Chloe search for the Book of Rao, which they think contains information they need to stop Zod. As the episode is named Hostage I think you can see where this is going.

Take a look at Gravity on Starz if you have the possibility.

Ariel becomes alarmed as she starts to loose large chunks of time in her life on Medium.

Melissa investigates an unresolved kidnapping that put her at more danger than anticipated in Ghost Whisperer.

Saturday May 8

We are lucky to have Legend of the Seeker on Saturdays, this week Rhal capture Cara and turn her against Richard as the Series Finale approach in Eternity. Richard and Kahlan discover the Stone of Tears is in a magical land from which they cannot leave; a surprise reunion lures Cara and Zedd into a deadly confrontation… I always thought Goodkin’s books where on the kinky side and this looks like another kinky episode.

The Doctor is recruited by Father Octavian to track the last of the Weeping Angels through the terrifying Maze of the Dead in this weeks on BBCA Doctor Who. As the Time Lord faces the Lonely Assassins, last seen in Blink, River Song is by his side. But can she be trusted?

Sunday May 9

No science fiction on Sundays, yet. Try Treme you might like it.

May is a month of season finales and renewal and pilot-to-series announcements. Not much new at least not scripted and science fiction. The only new non-reality series I found was this drama-comedy The Good Guy from FOX. It’s a a new action comedy about what happens when an old-school cop and a modern-day detective expose the big picture of small crime. It looks promising (more of it at the end of the post).

Returning tv series. Ashes to Ashes season two premieres May 11, but thats not a show I am following. Past Life is expected to return with the remaining episodes after it’s first run was prematurely canceled, expect it to suck.

Legend of the Seeker has its Series Finale Saturday May 22 since it’s been canceled (Read the post). I have really enjoyed the series even if it wasn’t perfect all the time. Richard, Kahlan and Zed, you will be missed.

It’s time for Season Finales now as spring hits nature here on the northern hemisphere. Supernatural, Vampire Diaries, Smallville, Chuck, Castle, V, Ghost Whisperer, Medium, Lost, The Big Bang Theory and FlashForward all spring their’s season finales in May. Most of them are expected to return but I doubt that FlashForward will and some other shows are still on the bubble Chuck and V for example.

Of the finales I am especially looking forward to the Apocalypse on Supernatural.

A few non SF shows I follow is also ending their season NCIS, House, Cougar Town, Bones, Gossip Girl, The Good Wife, Two and a Half Men and The Mentalist. Hmm, wonder if Two and a Half Men will be back, Charlie Sheen might want to get out according to the papers?

Recaps of April: Many of my favorite series returned after hiatus. Fringe came back with the truth about Peter arc, it’s better than ever. SGU picked up the pace and returned with aliens and a whole new positive beat, worth watching. Chuck and Sarah are finally together, and yes they are still spies (so are Morgan and Casey – on a mission together). Chuck has been fantastic this season. Two new shows you should try are Romantically Challenged, a comedy of four friends staring the talented and funny Alyssa Milano and Gravity, a comedy show about suicide and two star crossed and quirky people that meet through a suicide support group. Treme on sundays is also new and worth a non SF watch, great music. Happy Town is not a comedy, I am watching the premiere as I write this. It was okay, I will watch a few more episodes before I write a review. I also watched the first two episodes of Miami Medical but wasn’t impressed. Did I miss anything good?

The God Guy – A New Comedy on FOX

Premieres May 19, looks promising enough for me to give it a try.

From Matt Nix (“Burn Notice”), comes THE GOOD GUYS, a new action comedy about what happens when an old-school cop and a modern-day detective expose the big picture of small crime.

Once upon the 1970s, DAN STARK (Bradley Whitford) and his partner, Frank Savage, were big-shot Dallas detectives. So big, in fact, that they were lauded as American heroes after saving the Governor’s son. Thirty years later, Dan Stark is a washed-up detective who spends most of his time drunk or re-hashing his glory days. A stranger to modern police work who would much rather trust his old-school police instincts, Dan has the reputation as being a bit of a wild card. Able to skate by on the heroic deeds of his yesteryear, he is still a semi-active presence on the force, and with the help of his liquor of choice, occasionally comes through to solve a petty crime.

Dan’s new partner, JACK BAILEY (Colin Hanks), is an ambitious, by-the-book and overall good detective, but is sometimes a bit too snarky for his own good. His habit of undermining himself has earned him a dead-end position in the department, and he is stuck solving annoying petty theft cases that nobody else wants. Worse, he’s been given the thankless task of babysitting Dan, the drunk pariah who can never keep partners for long. Jack may not see it, but he has little chance of getting out of his situation; his knack for making enemies at the station has assured he is not going anywhere.

His only ally is ASSISTANT DISTRICT ATTORNEY LIZ TRAYNOR (Jenny Wade), a quick witted former girlfriend whom Jack hasn’t quite gotten over and the one person he turns to for help with his current professional predicament. Until Jack finds his way out of this situation, he is stuck awaiting the day when he can turn everything around, get back to solving actual cases and return to being a real detective.

On one fairly typical day, as Jack and Dan are pursuing a Code 58, the Dallas police code for routine investigations, which puts them hot on the case of a stolen humidifier, they inadvertently become engaged in a shootout over a stolen golf bag belonging to a notorious drug smuggler. This starts Jack and Dan on a wild chase to retrieve the bag, recover the contents inside and go after the drug smuggler – all while dodging his hired assassin!

The excitement of the case reminds Dan of the way he and Frank busted punks back in the good old days, and he convinces Jack to go along for the ride. Needless to say, many departmental rules are again broken in the reckless pursuit, showing their boss, LIEUTENANT ANA RUIZ (Diana Maria Riva), that Jack and Dan will be spending many more days in the Property Crimes Division, assigned to investigate seemingly minor crimes in order to keep them out of major trouble.

It”s going to be a fantastic month with all these season finales!

Feb 212010

Not very surprising that this happened, I am always expecting bad shows to get better, and it had some small potential. But not much.
