Sleepy Hollow was ridiculous. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Also, the Brooklyn 99 show was pretty funny so I will keep with that, even if the lead makes Shawn Spencer look mature.

SeeKITW, you watched Sleepy Hollow with the right eyes. It is ridiculous...and that is what makes it fun.

The lead really sells it, which keeps the show from being inane. Poor Clancey Brown, always losing his head over things.
Do I try out Le Blacklist or Hostages?

I'm gonna do both. Can someone tell me, I thought I heard that Hostages was a finite show. If it isn't I do not want to waste my time. No way the conceit of the show can be manipulated for more than 13 episodes or so.

I say it starts out finite, but if ratings are good, they add a 2nd season and beyond.

I liked Sleepy Hollow for what it was. Solid for a pilot too. The case files can provide loads of variety for MOTW themes. I started getting a Darksiders (videogame) vibe when you-know-who was revealed to be a you-know-what.
Hopefully FOX doesn't ruin it like all the other famous FOX shows of yore.

I enjoyed the premiere of Brooklyn Nine Nine quite a bit. It has a very likeable ensemble cast and a lot of potential. I found myself chuckling and smiling quite a bit. Combined with New Girl, it gives Fox two solid shows on Tuesday night. The Marvel superheroes show premieres opposite it this week which also looks good.

I thought Brooklyn Nine Nine was pretty good. I didn't think too much of the pilot though because they took so many clips from the trailers/commercials from that episode. So it wasn't as funny as it should have been. But I agree, it does have a ton of potential and I love the pairing with New Girl.

One of the shows I enjoyed last season was Chicago Fire, and that's moving to Tuesdays at 10 PM. Can't wait. Same for Revolution, which airs on Wednesdays now at 8 PM. I hope their ratings don't tank without help from The Voice. I would hate to see it canceled.

Fall TV Reviews: Mom, Hostages & The Blacklist
Hrm. Badger and French Stewart are both on Mom. I'm still not gonna watch, but if you are on the fence, there is a bit of motivation. Always liked French Stewart. Never understood why he kinda disappeared into drek.

I was kind of interested in Mom for Allison Janney, but... not enough to bother watching it.
