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.

In the new season, Joe has created a new life for himself in London, where he’s naturally become obsessed with yet another beautiful woman, an art gallery director named Kate (played by Charlotte Ritchie). And yes, he’s still pursuing his quest of finding Marienne (Tati Gabrielle).

And from experience, expect things to get very, very, very complicated. 

See you Feb 9!

Everything We Know About 'Christmas With You' Star Freddie Prinze Jr.

Freddie Prinze Jr., the ’90s heartthrob, is back on our TV screens in Netflix’s newest holiday rom-com, Christmas With You. 

In the film, Prinze Jr. stars as a Latino single father, Miguel Torres, who teaches music class at his daughter Cristina’s (Deja Monique Cruz) school when his path unexpectedly crosses with Angelina (Aimee Garcia), a burnt out popstar looking for her next Christmas hit.

The actor, who starred in hits like She’s All That and I Know What You Did Last Summer, admitted he felt pretty nervous getting back into the swing of things, but thankfully, it seems to be paying off as the film is being well-received by audiences for it’s heartwarming and important message. 

And now, we’re answering some of your burning questions about the leading man!

 

What Ethnicity is Freddie Prinze Jr.?

Since Prinze Jr. stars as a Hispanic father, the question of his ethnicity has come up quite frequently. The star reportedly embraces his Latin ancestry as his paternal grandmother was Puerto Rican, from Boquerón, so he is fluent in Spanish. His mom is of Italian descent, along with German, English, and Irish.

 

Does Freddie Prinze Jr. Have Kids?

Prinze Jr. shares two children with his wife, Sarah Michelle Gellar—13-year-old Charlotte Grace Prinze and 10-year-old Rocky James Prinze. 

In fact, the actor told TODAY that his return to acting has a lot to do with his daughter, stating, “My daughter has taken an interest in acting and performing, dance and things like that. So both my wife and I wanted to take a more active role to show her the way, so to speak, because we have very different processes (with) the way we deal with success and failure, rejection and acceptance and all those things.

“We wanted to give her an opportunity to see that it’s not just being famous, limousines and millions of dollars and all that. It requires a lot of sacrifice and a lot of hard work, time away from the people you love,” he added. 

 

Freddie Prinze Jr. Age

Since many of us grew up watching Prinze Jr. in the ’90s and early ’00s, we still think of him as this teen actor, but the truth is that he is 46 years old.

 

Freddie Prinze Jr. Wife

As mentioned before, Prinze Jr. wed his Scooby-Doo co-star, Sarah Michelle Gellar, in 2002. In fact, the couple met on the set of 1997’s I Know What You Did Last Summer, but didn’t start dating until a few years later in 2000. 

They recently celebrated their 20th anniversary together, with Gellar sharing a sweet photo from the nuptials in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on Instagram.
