The Masters of Sex (SHOW)-A
The best new fall series, Showtime has a great show on their hands with great acting writing, and a solid premise.
There is promise here, Farris and Janney are great, but the premise writing could use a little work. Great one liners, but tries too hard sometimes. Give it time, and it will find its groove.
Sleepy Hollow (FOX)-B+
Probably my second favorite fall show, and this past week's episode with ties to Dante's Inferno helped set a great direction for this show. Keep up the great work.
The premise is thin for me, and while I think its good drama with solid acting, I can't imagine this show stretching into a long running series.
The Blacklist (NBC)-B
James Spader is just plain fun, and while this is merely procedural, procedurals with great characters can have a long lasting impact.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC)-B-
Yes I have let go of my fan boy mentality with this show, they got a full season pick up, was their any doubt? I think the show is standing on solid ground, but needs to move quick, or fan boys will disappear into the gravity machine from last weeks episode.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (FOX)-B
Great potential, with a solid ensemble, maybe too many characters? If you are not a fan of Andy Samburg you will hate this show; he can be very grating. Andre Braugher is fantastic.
Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (ABC)-B
ABC should make this last one or two seasons, then close the loop between this and the mothership (Once Upon a Time), I have a feeling because of production costs this will be the case. The show is intriguing, and intrigued to see where this goes.
The Crazy Ones (CBS)-A-
This is my favorite new comedy of the season, I think the ensemble is great, and while Williams vamps well, so does the rest of the cast, and they have great chemistry.
The Michael J. Fox Show (NBC)-C
This show has the talent, but has a long way to go, I think this will be the first show removed from my TiVo, the way The Mindy Project was removed last year, never fulfilling the expectations of the build up.
