It’s September, and that means it’s time for all my shows to come back on air. For anyone who was wondering, here are the ones I’m planning on watching, at least to start off. I’ll be writing a premiere review at least for each show.
- Gotham Season 2 – While I probably won’t be talking about it on here much, I’ll be watching. Season 2 is titled “Rise of the Villains” and will feature more of a focus on the villains, including Eddie “The Riddler”
Nygma, Jerome “The Joker”, and the newly introduced Victor “Mr. Freeze” Frieze . This show plays on Mondays at 8pm and premiers today. I’m actually watching it as it premieres with a bunch of people from my dorm… if they show up at least. EDIT: Nope, no one showed up. I was beat out by “Big Bang Theory” a floor up.
- Minority Report – A loose sequel to the 1956 story by Philip K. Dick and the 2002 Tom Cruise movie, takes place in 2068, ten years after the end of precrime (the act of police arresting citizens before they commit a crime), one of the PreCogs (people with the ability to see the future and predict coming crimes) tries to live a normal life, but is still plagued by visions of the future. I enjoyed the movie, and the concept is still good, so I can’t wait to see how this turns out. This show plays on Mondays at 9pm and also premiers today, right after “Gotham”.
- Lucifer – Based on the Vertigo comic of the same name, this show is about Lucifer Morningstar, the devil himself, played by Tom Ellis, becoming bored of ruling Hell and leaving it to run a nightclub in Los Angeles. After the death of a close friend, he starts using his powers to help the LAPD solve a number of cases. The pilot leaked a while back, and it got some pretty good reviews, so I’m excited for it. This show plays Mondays at 9, and I have yet to find a premiere date.
- Agents of SHIELD Season 3 – Continuing on about the Inhuman team set up by Coulson and the combined SHIELD at the end of last season, SHIELD season 3 will be very different from its predecessors I feel… it’s kind of exciting. I wasn’t overly enthused about last season, but I feel like this one will be much better. I talked a little more about it in another article, seen here. Plays Tuesdays at 6pm and premieres on September 29th.
- Agent Carter Season 2 – “Agent Carter” was a surprising addition to the slate last season, and I enjoyed every moment of it. This season follows Haley Atwell’s spy into Los Angeles, where she’ll be dealing with matters concerning the Dark Force, which will probably tie into the upcoming Doctor Strange movie. I also talked more about this show in the previously linked article. It plays Tuesdays at 9pm, and, while I don’t have a premiere date yet, it’ll probably be in late December or early January.
- Arrow Season 4 – The fourth season of the oldest show on this list, I’ve been watching Arrow since the start. This season is about adding mysticism and magic into the show, featuring crossovers with Constantine, as well as following Oliver as he finally becomes the Green Arrow and leads into “Legend of Tomorrow”, all the while fighting against Damien Darhk. The show returns on October 7th, and plays Wednesdays at 8pm.
- The Flash Season 2 – Probably my favorite show on television last season, I trust the Season 2 will continue that trend. I’m looking forward to what happens after the season 1 finale, how they’ll use Tom Cavanagh’s Harrison Wells. Plus, Season 2 adds huge amounts to the contonuity, including the introduction of the multiverse, as well as such well-known characters as Jay Garrick, Wally West, Doctor Alchemy, Mirror Master, Atom Smasher, and Zoom. This show will also work towards “Legends of Tomorrow”. “The Flash” returns October 6th, and plays at 8pm on Tuesdays.
- Legends of Tomorrow – The ultimate CW-verse crossover, this show will contain characters and elements from both “Arrow” and “The Flash”. The show starts a team made up of Green Arrow, The Flash, Firestorm, Captain Cold, Heatwave, White Canary (a reanimated Sara Lance/Black Canary), The Atom, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, and introducing Rip Hunter, played by Arthur Darvill, and the immortal and villainous Vandal Savage (even the name sounds bad), played by Casper Crump. It premieres in January 2016.
- Vixen – An already-running animated series, Vixen takes place in the same continuity as “The Flash” “Arrow” and “Legends”. It’s about a woman, Mari McCabe, with the power to mimic the abilities of animals.The show is put online Tuesdays, and is four episodes in.
- Marvel’s Jessica Jones – “Jessica Jones” is about a retired superhero, Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), aka Impulse, who quit after she was mind-controlled by the Purple Man (David Tennant) to become a private detective. I’ve already talked some about this show in the previously linked article about Marvel’s Season 3. I enjoyed “Daredevil”, and the same will probably go for “Jessica Jones”. The show is released on Netflix on Friday, November 20th.
- Marvel’s Daredevil Season 2 – As previously mentioned, I very much enjoyed “Daredevil” season 1… probably the best show Marvel has so far. This season, unofficially titled “Daredevil vs. Punisher”, introduces Jon Bernthal as The Punisher, a popular Marvel antihero, and will be focused on the difference between their ideologies. This is the final show this season I mentioned in the above article. I’m assuming this show will be released on Netflix in April 2016.
- Supergirl – Another show by “Arrow” and “The Flash” producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, I sadly don’t think this show will cross over with the others. I explained why in this article. It’s about Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), the cousin to Kal-El, aka Superman, who landed on Earth twenty years after her cousin, who grew up and eventually became her own hero. The pilot leaked a few months ago, and I enjoyed it, though I’ll be watching it again when it officially comes out. This show features such characters as James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), The Toyman (Jeremy Jordan), and Red Tornado (Iddo Goldberg). This show premieres (officially) on October 26th, and plays on Mondays at 8:30.
So there’s what I’m considering watching. What are you watching? Tell me in the comments.
