Editor Picks: Top 5 Fall TV Shows You Need To Watch

Published

on


Fall TV season is upon us! Check out our list of top 5 shows, you need to tune into this season! 

1. Gotham is going to be Fox’s new hit. The tale looks at some of the most iconic villains through the eyes of Detective James Gordon. It’s a time when there is no Batman, because the man who will become Batman, is just a young boy, who has lost his parents. It’s risky to do a Batman show, without Batman, but the lineup of villains and the backstory to one of our favorites heroes of all time, seems promising.  It premieres Sept 22.

2. How To Get Away With Murder rounds out TGIT- Thank God It’s Thursday. Let’s be honest, Thursday is Shonda Rhimes night and it’s the beeeest night of television. Murder focuses on Professor Annalise Keating, a Criminal Law 101 professor at a prestigious Philadelphia university. She becomes intertwined in a murder scandal, along with her students. Scandal, murder, and mystery? Um, we’re in. Murder premieres Sept. 25 on ABC.

3. Jane the Virgin is really about a brilliant hotel receptionist and soon-to-be teacher, who finds out she’s pregnant after a mix up at the doctor’s office. Can you say artificial insemination? Becuase that’s the only explanation since Jane is a virgin, who values and treasures her virginity.  Imagine the shock of waking up one day pregnant! It’s based off a Venezuelan telenovela, but it does have moment so charm. Plus, didn’t the title make you want to tune in?

4. Vampire be gone, because 2014 is all about kids with incurable diseases.. apparently. Red Band Society is about unruly kids, who are being mentored by adolescents. It’s set in a Los Angeles pediatric hospital. It’s a little bit Glee, a little bit The Breakfast Club, with a hint of The Fault in Our Stars. The whole story of the group of youngin’s and their mentors is told by Griffin Gluck, starring as a coma patient. Downfall of this show might be the fact that glamorizing kids with diseases isn’t something Hollywood should be proud of. Anyone who has ever been sick can tell you, it’s nothing like it’s portrayed on TV. But maybe the emotionally substantial moments will be enough to save it? It premiere Sept. 17 on Fox.

5. Another 2014 theme…. DC superheroes. Cause everyone needs a hero in these times. It’s a spinoff of Arrow, so it also already has quite a good amount of fans. Seeing his mother get murder (just like Batman) and his father wrongly accused, Barry Allen gets taken in by Detective West and his family. Hoping to find out what really happened to his mother, and clear his father, he stumbles upon an accelerator which causes an explosion and puts him in acoma. Nine months later, he wakes up with superhuman speed. But there are also other superhuman created in the explosion, and Allen becomes the Flash, protecting Central City.

 
That wraps up our Top 5 Must See Shows of the Fall. Here are our “Give it A Shot” nominations.

They have potential… but they also have potential to be super cliche and fail miserably. Only time will tell.

  • There’s something so thrilling about summer affairs, right? Showtime’s The Affair is a provocative adult drama about two couples whose marriages are seriously put to the test by an affair. The series shows us the affair from all angles, and point of views, so it’s fun to make your own conclusion based on which character’s story you believe. West, is a novelist and father, who is happily married, until he falls into bed with a young waitress. Potential? Definitely. Especially with the Maura Tierney and Joshua Jackson. The tension is there. The story is there. But are the viewers there? It premieres Oct 12.

  •  The new Sherlock-Holmes-y inspired Forever has an immortal twist. But can the show stay immortal? Forever focuses on Dr. Henry Morgan, a gifted and intelligent medical examiner who happens to be immortal. He dies in the first episode, and somehow always returns naked, in water. He’s not sure if he can die, why he keeps coming back, and that’s why he studies the dead. He wants answers. It’s an interesting concept, but the execution is pretty bland compared to all the other good shows out this season. Do we even want to begin trying to solve the mystery? Do we want to get involved? It stars Ringer’s Ioan Gruffudd, which gives it a 50/50 chance and makes me skeptical, since I got involved last time and was left hanging! It premieres Sept 22.

‘This Is Us’ Season 5 Trailer Teases New Beginnings, Kevin & Randall’s Fallout, Kevin’s Fiancee, and Face Masks

This Is Us Season 5 Premiere Trailer Teases Coronavirus

The 2-hour premiere of This Is Us is closer than ever!

Just a few days after NBC revealed the first trailer for the drama that reunites us with the Pearson family, they’ve given us a second, longer trailer that is more focused on the fallout between Randall Pearson (Sterling K. Brown) and Kevin Pearson (Justin Hartley) following their blow-out confrontation. 

Will they find their way back? Will Kevin attempt to become a better brother? It may be a long road ahead, but it sure seems like it. 

While there’s minimal new footage since the series just began shooting a few weeks ago due to COVID delays, it teases “a new chapter” for the family. 

We see Randall celebrate his 40th birthday with wife Beth estranged from the rest of his siblings, who are celebrating together at the family cabin.

Kevin is seen walking to his car wearing a mask, which reveals that the series will be embracing the real-life coronavirus pandemic. It’s unclear how it’ll affect the family, but considering there’s a scene showing Kevin caressing Madison’s (Caitlin Thompson) growing baby bump, maybe the series will navigate pregnancy in a COVID-19 world. It’s likely easier to film certain scenes with more cast members if mask-wearing is permitted and deemed normal.

In a shocking twist, Kevin also calls her his “fiancee,” which prompts Kate Pearson (Chrissy Metz) to inform him that he needs to explain to use of the word fiancee.

Everything We Already Know About ‘YOU’ Season 3 on Netflix Including New Cast Members

Everything We Know About You Season 3

Hello, you.

Joe Goldberg, Will Bettelheim, or whatever we’re calling him these days, is only just getting started with you. 

WARNING: stop reading if you don’t want spoilers for YOU Season 1 and Season 2! 

The second season of the Lifetime-turned-Netflix series left on a pretty major cliffhanger: Joe is expecting a child with Love. Oh, and despite being confronted by someone equally as insane that made him realize his behavior and actions are completely unacceptable, he cannot help himself when he notices his new neighbor and his stalker-senses start tingling again.

Given all of that, it’s no surprise that the upcoming third season (which was renewed in early January) is highly-anticipated. It’s shaping up to be even more intense than the first two seasons combined.

The stakes are much higher now that a child is involved, Joe is being held accountable for his actions by Love, and much to his dismay, he’s stuck in a relationship with someone he’s not even in love with.

So, here’s what we know about the third season of YOU.

  • You’re going to binge-watch it – HA, okay, that was just a joke to see if you were paying attention. Of course, you’re going to binge-watch it.
  • It will premiere in 2021 – Netflix has confirmed that. In other words, you have about a year to recover from the insanity that was season 2.
  • Production has already kicked off – Showrunner Sera Gamble took to Twitter to share that “We’ve started work on season 3. Just thought you’d want to know.” And yes, we did want to know, so thank you, Sera.

  • It will be 10 episodes – Both seasons have consisted of 10 episodes so why fix something that isn’t broken, am I right?

  • You’ll see some familiar faces – Badgley will obviously reprise his character as stalker Joe, while Victoria Pedretti will return as his psycho baby momma Love Quinn.
  • Who are the new cast members? – Shalita Grant joins as Sherry, a “Mom-fluencer” who appears down to earth but is really a mean girl pretending to invite Love into her circle. Travis Van Winkle will play Cary, a wealthy guy who invites Joe into his circle. Sounds ominous. And if we know anything about Joe and Love, this isn’t going to end well for either Sherry or Travis.
  • Will Ellie be back? It’s not confirmed, but I’m crossing my fingers that we’ll also see Jenna Ortega return because we need a wellness check on that girl!

do-do you have a first aid kit handy??

A post shared by YOU (@younetflix) on

  • The dream team is returning – Not Joe and Love… never Joe and Love. We’re talking about Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti who delivered some twisted television magic.
  • Can I crush on Joe? – Seriously, no. He’s a narcissistic murder no matter how great his jawline is. You all saw what happened to Delilah.
  • The neighbor will be explored – Not much is known about the plot of season 3, but I reckon the object of Joe’s attention in those final moments is going to play a vital role. Even the season 3 announcement teased “see you soon, neighbor.” There are plenty of theories about who the mystery woman could be (Badgley debunked that it’s his mother, but do we believe him?), but I really want it to be Candace again. She can be like “hey, I’m still not dead.” Or maybe it’s Beck’s sister? Whoever it is, I don’t think it’s going to be anyone random.

  • Is it based on a book? Maybe. The first two seasons were based on novels by Caroline Kepnes, although, the plot did stray from the book ever so slightly. Kepnes is currently writing her third book and close to being finished, but there’s no word if it will inspire the third season.
  • Will Joe finally get what’s coming to him? I mean, I hope so. Whatever happened to the pee cup? How can no one tie any of these murders to him? Why does he keep getting away?

As you wait for the new season, you can binge-watch season 1 and 2 on Netflix.

And don’t forget to check out the funniest memes inspired by our dear Joe and his murderous tendencies.

Nostalgia Alert: ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ Reboot Ordered at Amazon

Published

I Know What You Did Last Summer reboot coming to Amazon

Amazon has officially ordered to series a reboot for I Know What You Did Last Summer.

Now, if the reboot was based off of 2020, the premise wouldn’t be all that thrilling because no one did anything this summer. Thanks, COVID. 

But thankfully, the magic of television doesn’t have to abide by the real-world face mask and social distancing rules. 

The reboot, like the 1997 slasher classic, will be loosely based on Lois Duncan’s 1972 of the same name. 

In the young adult adaptation, it will focus on a group of teenagers who are stalker by a mysterious killer a year after a fatal accident on graduation night. 

“The best horror franchises always have another scare coming, and this I Know What You Did Last Summer series from Sara Goodman is a perfectly twisted update to the iconic slasher movie,” said Albert Cheng, COO and co-head of television at Amazon Studios, per Deadline. “Any way you slice it, our global Prime Video customers will love this modern take on the fan favorite film.”

While we’re all for a modern retelling, we can’t help but yearn for some of the original cast members to reprise their roles. 

After all, the thriller featured a star-studded cast of 90s heartthrobs including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr.

We know Phillippe is busy working on the upcoming ABC mystery drama, Big Sky, but could we at least get 2 out of 4 to sign on for the reboot? Wishful thinking, we know.
