Fall TV Premiers: What I’m Watching

493999989It’s fall! And along with chilly air and the Pumpkin Spice Latte, we are given the gift of fall TV premiers. I’m so excited!

Here is what I’m looking forward to:

  • Legends (on DVD, didn’t get to see it this summer)
  • Stalker
  • The Flash

Here’s what I’ve already seen and am excited about:

  • Madam Secretary
  • Scorpion
  • Forever
  • The Mysteries of Laura
  • Selfie

Here’s what I’m most thrilled to see return:

  • The Blacklist (Best new show of last fall!)
  • Doctor Who
  • Hell on Wheels
  • Person of Interest
  • Modern Family
  • Bones
  • Castle
  • Homeland
  • White Collar (sniff sniff, last season)
  • Grimm
  • The Mentalist (sniff sniff, last season)
  • Elementary
  • Downton Abbey
  • Justified
  • Continuum
  • Sherlock

And I’ve seen and am on the fence about Gotham and How to Get Away with Murder, despite having initial high hopes. And I want to be really excited about Gracepoint, but I wasn’t over the moon about the BBC version, even though I am over the moon about David Tennant, my beloved 10th Doctor.


What about you? What’s on your watch list?
