So this looks to be my fall schedule as far as Network TV goes...
Monday: The Blacklist Tuesday: Brooklyn Nine Nine, New Girl, Chicago Fire Wednesday: Revolution, Modern Family Thursday: Nothing. Just waiting for Community to return. Friday: Masterchef Junior
I enjoyed Back in the Game as well, but I never remember what night this show is on. I just saw the pilot on Hulu and I'll make sure to catch the next one there too.
Back In The Game is on Wednesday right before Modern Family. The second episode was as not bad as the first for me. I actually liked the second episode of Shield better than the first - the lines were much better and as cheap a move it was to bring Sam Jackson in at the end, I had a smile the whole time. Sleepy Hollow was good but not as good in the second episode, although I loved the main guy's "there were more?" every time I saw it in a promo and still when it came up in the show.
Let's see how many episodes of Revolution I can pile up before I start watching any.
Have you never watched Homicide, or are you speaking of a re-watch?
Booby and I (if I remember correctly) bonded on our mutual love for the much underrated Homicide. I watched EVERY episode and kids that was pre-dvr and the horrible days of setting a vhs program. Story time w/jerseydevil now concludes.
I think the big problem with Shield (not The Shield, which was brilliant) is that four of the actors are just too young. This ultra-important team of government agents is 2/3 college kids. Somehow Whedon managed to cast grown-ups in Firefly, but couldn't bring himself to do it here. One of the scientists can be that young, and then maybe the hacker chick, although she would be better off being five years older. The worst casting by far was the agent guy, who looks like he should be on Gossip Girl and doesn't bring anything special to the table to begin to overcome that. Recast him with Max Martini and act like nothing happened.
