    Which fall shows will you watch?

    Unsure of which new shows to watch this fall? Don't fret. Globe TV critic Matthew Gilbert has already done all the work for you, assigning each new show a grade. (Shows without grades were not available for preview.) Take a look at this season's debuts and let us know in the forum below which shows you're excited to watch.

    Re: Which fall shows will you watch?

    Sigh.  Not a lot of new stuff that holds much interest for me in this batch.  I'd like New Girl to be good, I quite like Zooey, but I'll be watching it with painful anticipation for it to disappoint me.  Otherwise.. most of the grades are about what I expected for stuff I've seen advertised.  But I'm bummed Michael brought up Eli Stone--I miss that show!  And I can't believe what garbage the networks are putting out while canceling things like Chuck after its final 13 episode run.  I can't even think what else in the list I'm likely to watch.. I might check out Terra Nova.. Eh, we'll see.  I probably have enough shows that I can afford a lame batch of new stuff I'm not interested in.

    Most of the shows I'm seeing for the fall line up look stupid. The new girl....oh please! This appears to be about as entertaining as watching grass grow. The playboy club?.......more trash tv. I wish they'd make something that rivals the old shows like the old Bob Newhart as the Dr or Mary Tyler Moore in the Newsroom. At least those were funny! It's almost as if a lot of shows have to force humor and it comes off as just that. Forced. Not very entertaining. I predict more than half will fail early on.

    None of the above

    The idea of shows organized around the networks' schedules instead of our own, seems increasingly quaint.  And it is a sure bet that all these will be rendered unwatchable by the quantity of ads. 

    Of course you can spend yet more money for Tivo to allow watching on your schedule with ads zapped, but I don't get the sense that any of these shows are worth it.  I'd rather spend the money on DVD rentals or selectively buying old shows on DVD.

    When you watch or listen to the news, you can't easily skip over the stuff you're not interested in. Add to that the fact the video is slower than reading. News in print, including text-based Internet news is much more efficient, and it takes less time and effort to use a variety of different sources.

    Re: Which fall shows will you watch?

    Playboy Club seems to be an attempt by the foundering Playboy Magazine empire to cash in on its brand and image. Pan Am is obviously set up to compete with Playboy Club or grab some of its viewers. Unforgettable seems to be doing the same thing by ripping off The Mentalist, which ripped off Psych
    I think Playboy Club and Pam Am will suffer from the "ship-in-a-bottle" episode problem that LAX and other shows like it faced. You're stuck in a static main location that has few applications. How many plots can you generate from the thin premise before it goes dry?

    Man Up, Last Man Standing,
    and How to Be a Gentleman are a reverse of the metrosexual bromance comedies like FOX's Stoplights. Allen Gregory seems to be more like Mike Judge's The Goode Family, except it is a straw-man parody that covers intellectual elitism rather than left-wing culture.

    Grimm and Once Upon A Time seem to cover a perceived "fairytale gap" in the fall schedule: the only reason it's getting made is because the competition is doing one.

    This lists new shows for the fall, not renewed shows.

    Once Upon a Time

    Other than The Boston Globe... (but you were critical of "Lost" at times too, no, so I'm going to tune you out)... The reviews of "once upon a time" in a lot of other places online say it's the freshest and most interesting show of the fall, so I'm going to stay optimistic there... It's definitely the most abmitious fall (other than Terra Nova perhaps, the Dystopian Jurassic Park?)...

    Very much pleased by declining to grade shows without previews.


    This is a big help compared with relying on network promotional hype. I will probably watch only one or two regularly.
