With the November 4 premiere pushed back thanks to the World Series, Almost Human is finally premiering on November 17 and 18 with a two-night premiere event. The recently released eight-minutes of sneak footage (which you can watch here), but without context it was kind of hard to follow and get excited
It’s been a busy couple of days as most of the major U.S. television networks have started making decisions on which shows will grace the small screen next season.
One of the best things about television is the variety of content and subject matter that is available for consumption. It is so wide-reaching, there are so many channels, genres and series to choose from that pretty much anyone can find something they enjoy. Add to that options like Netflix and Hulu to get caught up on shows you may have missed or as an introduction to new series and there is no end to the possibilities for viewing enjoyment. As it turns out, television in 2012 is so varied that there was little to no agreement on any of our writers’ favorites.
The Screen Invasion Team watches a lot of television. (Something you may have guessed from the many, many recaps posted daily.) As we watched our Fall TV faves, we noticed a trend: namely, female characters who are kicking ass and taking names (literally, in some cases). Ladies so successfully dominating their respective TV-universes that nothing keeps them down for long. And we wanted to do a little something to show these kick-ass TV chicks the R-E-S-P-E-C-T that is so rightly theirs.
New Girl totally outdid itself with this episode and this season. “Santa” is one of my favorites for sure. I can’t tell you how happy I am that this show found it’s footing and has taken off to become such a fantastic success. Everything works, the cast, the guests, the
No, I have not abandoned New Girl and have been very disappointed by the sequence of events that led me to miss out on the last few weeks of reviews, but I’m back and just in time! This episode was rife with guest stars of exceptional caliber and nostalgia inducing
Thankfully New Girl, “Neighbors” did not delve further into Jess and Nick’s admission that they are attracted to one another…occasionally. Maybe the writers can pull this part of the story off this early without becoming clichéd or irritating, but only time will tell. No mention of one or the other dating
New Girl, “Fluffer” continues this season’s beginning theme of a “new Jess” who can randomly have sex with no emotional attachment. How long did we really think that would last? Jess just can’t become another version of the myriad of Sex in the City-esque characters that seem to be everywhere.
New Girl is back and is changing things up for Jess, keeping things fresh to start Season Two by throwing her a curve ball of life changing proportions. Fox was clever about bringing the show back in not one but two installments on the same night, but thirty minutes apart
Dear Readers, They say that little girls are made of “sugar and spice, and everything nice.” Assuming that grown-up women are made of the same, at least to some extent, I wonder: Do women also look for and/or need these qualities in our movies? In other words, what ingredients does the
It was another busy week in TV thanks to the major networks’ Upfront presentations, so it’s another jam-packed episode. We talk about the new fall schedules, which pilots we’re excited for, which night will be our busiest, and of course what we’ve been watching and what we’re looking forward to.
