We can't wait for some of our old favorite shows to return! Here's a list of the ones we are most looking forward to, along with links to my past reviews and start dates for this fall:
- Scorpion, season 4 begins 9/25 - a fun show about a group of genius misfits helping the government - not always believable but fun, suspenseful, a good sense of humor, and even a bit of geek romance. We've been watching it for 3 years, but I guess I haven't reviewed it yet!
- Blacklist, season 5 starts 9/27 - we still enjoy this fast-paced thriller starring James Spader as the mysterious Red. Can't believe I haven't reviewed that one yet, either!
- Designated Survivor, season 2 starts 9/27 - and we can't wait! We loved the first season of this political drama crossed with an action thriller starring Keifer Sutherland as a former HUD Secretary who becomes President when the rest of the country's leadership is killed in a bombing.
- Grey's Anatomy, season 14 (!!) starts 9/28 - yes, we still watch this long-running medical drama!
- How To Get Away With Murder, season 4 starts 9/28 - this complicated legal thriller
- Madam Secretary, season 4 starts 10/8 - we are huge fans of this political drama starring Tea Leoni as Secretary of State.
- Good Behavior, season 2 starts 10/15 - we loved this new show last winter, based on a series of novels by Blake Crouch (of Wayward Pines fame) about Letty, a con woman, trying to hold onto her beloved son, who hooks up with a killer-for-hire boyfriend. Here's its IMDB page.
- Travelers, season 2 starts 10/16 - we watched season 1 of this time-travel show starring Eric McCormack on Netflix last year with our son and loved it!
- Blindspot, season 3 starts 10/27 - this intriguing thriller features a
- Stranger Things, season 2 starts 10/27 - we binged this 80's sci fi Netflix show with our son last year and all loved it! Can't wait to see what happens next.
New Shows To Try
I went through a LOT of trailers and narrowed it down to these that look like we might enjoy them:
The Good Doctor (ABC) starting 9/25 - about a young genius surgical resident who is autistic (and whose hiring is controversial)
Ten Days in the Valley (ABC) starting 10/1 - a 10-episode thriller starring Kyra Sedgwick as a TV producer whose daughter goes missing
The Crossing (ABC) starting in October - I think I am most excited about this new sci fi thriller, about a group of refugees who appear in an American town seeking asylum - from 250 years in the future!
Deception (ABC) starting in October - a new suspense thriller about an illusionist/magician working with the FBI
Wow, so many good shows to look forward to this fall!! It all starts next week...get ready for some binge-watching!
