Fall TV Thread 2017-18
 
Well, here we go again.

Summer TV is just about wrapping up. And pretty soon, fall television will be starting right back up. How time flies.

Use this thread to tell us what you're going to try watching, what you're returning to, place your bet on which show gets cancelled first, what are you giving up on, etc.

I know there's a lot of hype going around for the new Star Trek show, The Deuce over on HBO, and some of ya are hyped for the new American Horror Story. Meanwhile, The CW continues it's DC monopoly with another superhero show on the way.

I'm not going to put together a list. But, I'll provide a link from TV Guide to give you an idea of what to expect this season.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND GO!

Hyped for the return of Curb Your Enthusiasm

Might check out The Deuce, but also might forget

Dunno if I will check out Black Lightning or The Gifted..... feel like there are already so many superhero TV shows for me to watch........

screech 09-03-2017 08:55 PM

Gonna be watching Gotham, Agents of SHIELD, and The Goldbergs, and Designated Survivor.

I haven't looked into any new shows yet.

Lock Jaw 09-03-2017 08:56 PM

Also hyped for season 2 of Legion

I never finished last season of Gotham..... probably didn't watch the majority of it..... I just fell way too behind and decided to delete it all from my DVR for the sake of space. I'll probably check it out when it comes out on Netflix.

Destor 09-03-2017 10:33 PM

Legion is what im most hyped for. Tbink Runaways is this fall season too...if that counts.

Lock Jaw 09-03-2017 10:46 PM

Oh yeah...... even though I have more than enough superhero shows, I'll probably try to check Runaways out

Lock Jaw 09-10-2017 09:59 PM

Watched the pilot of The Orville...... humour fell kind of flat for me, but the more serious aspects of the show were alright....... mainly it just made me want to watch the new Star Trek show. Or an old Star Trek show.

Droford 09-11-2017 01:32 AM

If it wasnt Seth McFarlane it wouldnt get a 2nd episode

The pacing was a bit off and the window washer bit at the end took away fron the scene but I am hoping for some improvements and at th moment hope it gets picked up.

I think his heart is in the right place for this

Big Vic 09-11-2017 11:08 AM

I doubt it lasts longer than the Cleveland show.

Clevland show had 88 episodes...just shy of syndication...


(still shocked they didnt order a 12 ep season...lost money by canceling them early imo...)

Destor 09-11-2017 11:30 AM

Think that was the most perplexing cancelation in recent years...

Lock Jaw 09-11-2017 11:53 AM

See the Cleveland Show on all the time on Much Music. Never watched an episode, though.

Destor 09-11-2017 11:58 AM

>100 eps brings in considerably less revenue...course it is changing with the impact streaming services are having...but somethign like the clevland show @88eps will allow for networks with fewer dollars to spend to grab it on the cheap.

Big Vic 09-11-2017 01:19 PM

why do you need a hundred eps for syndication?

Big Vic 09-11-2017 01:23 PM

This is why I guess

They show Cleveland Show on FOX Comedy here. At like 4am.

I didnt know that actually, good info. Makes the cancellation make more sense.

Big Vic 09-11-2017 02:13 PM

Back on topic I am quite excited to watch Survivor despite its awful gimmick this season.

Lock Jaw 09-11-2017 02:33 PM

What is the gimmick

Are there zombies on the island

Destor 09-11-2017 03:08 PM

I would watch that

Big Vic 09-11-2017 03:37 PM

That would be better

Survivor: Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers is the upcoming 35th season of the American CBS competitive reality television series Survivor. This season will feature 18 new players divided into three tribes based on dominant perceived trait: "Heroes" (courage), "Healers" (helping others), and "Hustlers" (tenacity).

Just call it Survivor Fiji zzzzzzzz

DEAD ISLAND, MOTHERFUCKER!

ClockShot 09-12-2017 03:54 PM

I know this is for fall TV.

But I know some of you watch a few shows during the Summertime. So, I'll posts the fates of a few notable ones.

FX: Snowfall renewed for a 2nd season.

HBO: Insecure, Ballers, and Room 104 all picked up for another season. Veep will wrap it up with a final 7th season.

Netflix: GLOW, Ozark, Friends from College, Last Chance U all get another season. Gypsy has been cancelled.

Syfy: Dark Matter and Blood Drive cancelled. Killjoys gets 2 more 10-episode seasons (4th & 5th) to wrap things up.

TNT: Will cancelled after 1 season.

BBC America: The Doctor Who spinoff Class axed after 1 season.

Amazon: Transparent picked up for a 5th season before the 4th begins. Z: The beginning of everything and The Last Tycoon both cancelled.

History: Vikings picked up for a 6th season.

Anything I might have missed, or something specific you're looking for, Metacritic keeps good track of this stuff.

Slik 09-12-2017 04:17 PM

All the new shows for ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX look really bad so far from what I've seen.

Destor 09-12-2017 04:25 PM

Z and the Last Tycoon were both excellent and Im really bummed about this

Destor 09-29-2017 05:52 PM

Inhumans is very nearly cancelled

ClockShot 09-29-2017 06:04 PM

CBS gives Big Bang Theory spin-off Young Sheldon a full season.

Spike cancels the Stephen King television adaption of The Mist after 1 season.

RP 09-29-2017 08:22 PM

This Inhumans is pretty terrible. But Ramsey Bolton is good.

RP 09-29-2017 08:37 PM

It's not that terrible though. The costumes are terrible.

RP 09-29-2017 08:54 PM

Rofl just shaved Medusa bald.

Destor 09-29-2017 09:01 PM

CG cost $$$

Destor 10-01-2017 06:15 PM

Watching inhumans. Not as bad as the word of mouth ive heard but i wont mourn its loss when it gets canned. Very average.

Destor 10-01-2017 06:24 PM

Medusa has huge tits

Lock Jaw 10-02-2017 08:36 PM

Just watched Inhumans as well. It was indeed average, but not as bad as all that. I'll check it out again.

The whole thing just probably would have worked better as a storyline in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. where they discover Inhumans on the moon.

Medusa looks better bald. Was a pretty bad wig or whatever.

They also had Karnak hit his head and lose his smarts, so they have pretty much taken away two of the main character's abilities right off the bat.

Destor 10-02-2017 08:54 PM

Would have made a great shield arc

Destor 10-02-2017 08:56 PM

Karnak getting power anesia is "pretty bad" arc wise especially when you now have 3 charactersnkt able to use their powers...medusa is bald (Obviously thats impossible to comic fans but whatever) karnak is stricken retarded and black bolt nerfs himself.

Destor 10-02-2017 08:56 PM

3 characters with the same arc...

Destor 10-02-2017 08:56 PM

But i will give it 7 eps.

Destor 10-02-2017 10:05 PM

Watched the premiere of gifted. Not wow but solid. Polaris and Blink were rad. Ill give it my usual 7 before i make judgement.
