I have been looking forward to this TV Fall season, as there were many hyped scripted shows arriving, and some favorites returning. While there were some disappointments, I have come across some pleasant surprises.
The Crazy Ones
Robin Williams little over the top acting reminds me of a kid on a sugar high, but we expect this type of fast paced, hyper comedy from this fantastic actor. While I am not a fan of most comedy shows currently on television, The Crazy Ones has potential, even if it at times seems like an half an hour commercial for the company they supposed to write ads for.
Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
I am a big Joss Whedon fan, and this show just proves again that he can deliver. Witty, faced paced, and placed well into the Marvel Universe, this show might be too much for anyone not familiar with the characters, but for fans of anything comic book related, it is a must see. Love Agent Colson, portrayed by Clark Gregg, as well as new addition, Skye, played by Cloe Bennet . Still waiting to connect with the rest of the cast. The potential for something great is there.
This new show is well done, the characters believable and easy to connect with, the special effects neither cheesy nor overboard. Ken Olin and Len Wisemen’s (directors) take on the classic brings in new and unexpected twists, that make me want to see more. Tom Mison does a great job as the long haired, handsome Ichabod Crane.
After leaving us with a cliff hanger last season (spoiler alert!) She said yes! – the season start left us with another cliff hanger, that put my entire family on the edge of the seat. There is much potential to this fast past story line, which keeps the banter and relationship of the two main characters – Castle and Beckett -alive and fresh. A must see, again, this season. Love Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic.
I almost missed this fast paced show with an incredible amount of plot twists. Interesting and very fresh story about a criminal master mind who surrenders himself to the FBI, volunteering information about his criminal colleagues, while exploiting the situation to connect with an particular FBI agent, Elizabeth Keen (played by Megan Broone) . Superbly written, this show is an instant hit. I am expecting many seasons of exiting and unexpected crime fighting, while exploring the hidden agendas of Raymond “Red” Redding ton (James Spader).
