I am avoiding the next two days of the Vampire Diaries meme because they require a bit too much thought, since I want to come up with some good rec lists that aren't dominated by Caroline/Klaus =P
So instead, let's talk more about the new TV shows.The Blacklist
This continues to be my favourite new show and the only one that I rush to watch when I see it is airing/recorded. Yes, it's pretty bad guy of the week but it's been interesting, plus the dynamic between Reddington and Elizabeth has me hooked. I really can't see the reveal being anything different than the obvious, that he's her father, but I definitely think that story has some awesome potential to it so it would work.Sleepy Hollow
This one is growing on me, mainly because the two leads are really good. And the whole twist of making the Headless Horseman one of the Four Horsemen is a pretty interesting one. I don't think it's episodicness works quite as well as The Blacklist's but OMG Ichabod is awesome and I love him. And Abby is pretty kickass too.
Please no romance.
Please.Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. (aka show with too many periods in its title)
Finally started watching this one and I like it okay so far. It probably has the strongest start of any Whedon show I've seen (with the exception of Angel, which, as a spin-off, doesn't really count). I wouldn't say I love it yet but I'm engaged enough to want to see more. I still have a few episodes to catch-up on.
Interestingly though, while I do like the team so far ... I really don't like Coulson. He seems to be just there to spout clever Whedon lines, which makes them less clever in the end.
Also, this show may finally get me to put an effort into seeing The Avengers, finally. That, and the fact that the trailers for the next Thor movie have make me think I might be invested enough in those characters to care about things.The Originals
I am definitely getting into this show. I am pretty sure the main reason is Marcel because he is a pretty awesome character. And, of course, I love Klaus and Rebekah. And am definitely growing to love Haley, now that she is actually getting some decent character development and stuff like that. Very interested to see where things go next ... though not so interested in seeing a love triangle form with Marcel, Klaus, and Cammy. I am still far too invested in Klaus/Caroline to be happy to see either of them have new love interests. Cross-over time, now!Trophy Wife
This is probably my favourite of the new sitcoms so far. It's pretty fun and I do enjoy the characters. I just wish it was perhaps a bit less sitcom-y. I doubt it will go there though so I'll take some fun and be happy with it.The Michael J Fox Show
This one is ... still just okay. I probably wouldn't watch it if not for MJF but he's still a solid reason to keep at it.The Crazy Ones
The last episode showed promise for this to develop into something better. But I think right now they really need to tone down Robin Williams a bit. Or maybe more than a bit. Don't get me wrong, he's a funny guy, but sometimes less really is more.
Though I do still like the past tense line: "Past tense. We have a past and now it's tense."
I recorded Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, which I will probably watch soon-ish (as well as catching up with regulare Once Upon a Time). I also plan to check out Dracula, because of Jonathan Rhys Meyers and I'll be watching Almost Human. I don't currently have plans to watch any other new shows, though if I'm missing something good, let me know.
Also, I have been enjoying the trial I signed up for with Crunchyroll, that is finally letting me see last season's big hit, Attack on Titan. In case you haven't seen it, here's the AMAZING, MADE OF AWESOME OPENING.
