Fall TV Preview: What to Watch

We’re back from summer hiatus along with some of our favourite shows. Here is our fall tv preview and what we think of some of these new additions. Basically this is our ‘if you’re not watching you should definitely be watching’ list.

Westworld

HBO

Probably the most talked about show this fall, it premiered on HBO last Sunday, and everyone’s dubbing it ‘the new Game of Thrones’ Okay, it’s probably the farthest thing from the Game of Thrones world, but it’s an HBO production, and let me tell you they did not cheap out on this one. If you were a fan of the Matrix movies, you’ll most likely be a fan of Westworld. I, however, was not a Matrix fan nor am I remotely interested in anything sci-fi. BUT, I enjoyed every second of the premiere and I am officially obsessed. If you’re down for a show that requires attention but pays it forward with a boat load of Easter eggs, this is the show for you.

 

 

Pitch

FOX

Okay we’re leaving HBO for cheaper television, but hey, there’s still some good stuff on here. Pitch is the story of the first female baseball player to enter the male professional baseball world. I know it sounds so cheesy and I was so not going to watch this show, but I was pleasantly surprised.

They put you right into the world of ‘her’ on her first professional game day experience, and it all seems so wild you’re intrigued by this new world. The writing is witty and empowering. It’s a feminist show without being a feminist show – does that make sense ? ‘Her’ name is Ginny Baker played by Kylie Bunbury and she slays (sorry I couldn’t find another word okaaay), she finds the perfect balance between cocky sports player and vulnerable rookie.There’s also a lineup of good actors, Ali Larter plays her agent and is basically the female version of Ari Gold. Mark Consuelos plays the manager of the baseball team and he’s meh.  Then you have bearded Zach Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) playing the A-list sports star of the team. He looks really old compared to her. In typical fashion, she’ll probably have a romance with him but I’m really hoping she doesn’t because this is 2016, there’s a girl playing baseball with a bunch of guys and we’re doing something different! So no more predictable storylines – I’m looking at you deceased family members!

Scream Queens

FOX

I’m someone who considers Ryan Murphy and his crew Jesus and his disciples. Seriously, that crew just know how to make relevant and good TV. Scream Queens was one of my favourite shows last fall, and with a promise that each season will be a different ‘setting’ you naturally stick around to see what’s next. This season we find all our favourite peeps plus some new ones at C.U.R.E  – a medical institution that Dean Munsch opens because she’s basically filthy rich and wants to change the health care system. But also you know she’s got some secret plan. Oh and there’s a green monster this time around haunting the halls of the hospital. My favourite security enforcement solutions officer is back (Niecy Nash), newly graduated from Quantico (I died) she’s all about finding the killer, who she still thinks is Zayday (Keke Palmer). I was laughing through this entire write up, they kill me.

Rob and Blac Chyna

E!

I feel like I’m just going down the TV totem pole here, but considering half of television is reality television and half the universe is Kardashian, it’s only fitting Rob’s new show is on here. Seriously, I loved Rob, and then he got all sad and disappeared and I missed him! But now he’s back, he definitely still has issues and I have no idea how he’s about to be a parent but hopefully Scott can give him a few pointers. (Sarcasm) Also, Chyna’s pretty cool. Here’s to hoping Kylie does in fact realize things this year and actually makes a mends with both her boyfriend and brothers’ baby mama. Guys don’t judge me, I want to see him win! (Oprah voice)

 

How to Get Away with Murder

Like I feel like at this point we pretty much know how to get away with murder, now in its third season the drama seems to be repeating itself just a tad but we’re giving V-Davis and crew  a chance. Frank is crazy – let’s just call it like it is. He’s friggin hot as hell but he crazy, and with his new haircut he looks even crazier. Honestly, sometimes the drama is just too next level on this show, but now I kinda wanna see Laurel and Wes have a thing. Also, more flashbacks from the season premiere, V’s house gets burned down and someone doesn’t make it. My money’s on Billy Brown. Stay tuned, because if you don’t you’re gong to get confused with all those time jumps.

Let us know of your favourite shows this Fall season and we will get on them!
