Superheroes and Revivals

As another season of TV comes to a close I am noticing a trend for next year’s shows. Superheroes and revivals will be in abundance. Unfortunately the good shows from this season, ones that make you think or are more complex were of course axed while every reality show and many crime shows are sticking around.

Here’s a quick rundown:

Superheroes
The CW (heaviest on the heros)
– Legends of Tomorrow
– Arrow
– The Flash
– Supergirl

FOX
– Gotham
– The Gifted (new 2017-18)

ABC
– Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
– Inhumans (new 2017-18)

These are just off the top of my head, there might be more. Well I know there’s more on Netflix which I don’t have. (insert gasp here)

Revivals
– American Idol (why?! It was awful the first time)
– Will & Grace
– Friends

While they’re reviving old 90s sitcoms they should bring back Dharma & Greg, both actors are out of jobs right now, so might as well get on the train while its moving forward.

So many shows…

Not much new here, I am only about a month behind on TV though. Been keeping up pretty well. I’ve been more disappointed in the shows that are getting canceled fairly quickly. I’m not sure that writing about them would save any of them. Unfortunately that would be my way of “saving” a show since I watch them so late they don’t get credit for me even seeing it.

A couple notable exits this season are Bones and Grimm. Both are doing their “Final Chapter.” I’m not disagreeing that these shows are going to be over this year. It was time for both of those shows.

I have not forgotten about this blog, and it is on my mind and to do list so I hope to begin again writing about the various shows I watch for those that are interested.

Sleepy Hollow is making me sleepy

This show was great for the first half of the first season. It’s been going downhill since then. Some episodes seem to drag more than others. Most shows you at least skip a little time between (traditionally a week), but this one feels like you get an hour by hour account of what is happening to the characters.

Now that I have seen the fall finale (finally), I’m not even sure why the show is coming back. It seems to me they destroyed Moloch and then the show no longer has a purpose. Once you kill the bad guy and fulfill whatever prophecy I can imagine a happy ending for the characters. I guess I’ll continue to record it, but if there’s a next season I probably won’t be joining.

The best part about this show is Icabod and his commentary, reactions, and general “old” use of the English language. But now I’m able to get something similar from Forever.
