September is a great time of year. Baseball's in the hunt for October, football is back, and new fall TV shows. 

There's the tried and true TV shows like Modern Family that I've watched for years... Gotham season 3, where they hopefully don't fly off the rails again... The Blacklist... 

Along with new shows such as "Designated Survivor" with Kiefer Sutherland, "The Good Place" starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson, or "High Maintenance" on HBO. 

What's on your radar for Fall TV shows?

Returning for a 2nd year is 'Life in Pieces' starring Dianne Wiest and James Brolin. The first season was quite funny. Looking forward to the new season.

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. But a skunkweed will always be a skunkweed and instantly recognizable.

I don't know how they're going to top Naked and Afraid Africa, but I can't wait to find out.

Agents of SHIELD, Walking Dead, The Flash; I'll see if the new MacGyver is any good.

 

Lotsa Netflix; headed up by Luke Cage.

 

Curious about Star Trek: Discovery but that's not until January and I'm not sure if I'll pay CBS extra money to watch it.

 

Doctor Who series 10 isn't until April, I think.

'The Crown' and 'Luke Cage', both from Netflix. Then I eagerly await Season 3 of Fargo next spring :-)

 

Goliath looks like it has potential.

I've seen commercials for MacGyver... I'm crossing fingers it's good. 

Heard good things about Luke Cage. I'll add that to the list.

Wasn't Fargo a winter TV show? Sad that we have to wait until the spring.... I'll patiently wait for greatness, though.

Have you watched Daredevil (both seasons) and Jessica Jones?If not, I'd watch them first.

I'd suggest watching them in order.Daredevil Season One, Jessica Jones, Daredevil Season 2.These are extremely well done shows, not just well done superhero shows.

We tried watching that show and stopped after 2 episodes. It must have gotten better for it to start a 3rd season.

We had a thread here on Jessica Jones. I remember Daredevil also being talked about ... maybe on that thread as well?

Jessica Jones is the logical prerequisite for Luke Cage, as he's introduced in that series.

The books were certainly good.

Nah, I don't think very many people like it. I'm pleasantly surprised that it's been given a 3rd season.

Luke Cage and Westworld top my list.

 

And if you're not watching The Get Down right now, you're missing out.

Luke Cage and Westworld are atop my list.  Eagerly awaiting Legion, Fargo, Game of Thrones, and American Gods coming out later.

 

Gotham went so far off the rails I gave up last season.  I wanted, so badly, to like that show.

 

Walking Dead won't get my audience until some Sunday afternoon replay.  That show needs to figure out it's bad trolling crap before I'll tune in again in their primetime slot.
