Back at the end of July I made a list of the TV shows I was loving. Now, the Fall TV season is here and there are so many new shows coming out! I’ll be watching a bunch of my returning TV shows (including The Walking Dead of course!) but there are a few new ones that I’m excited about.
Marvel’s Luke Cage
This is the show I’m most excited for! Marvel’s Luke Cage is Netflix’s latest Marvel TV series. I’m a big Marvel fan so of course I’m psyched for it! I really love Daredevil and Jessica Jones so I know I’ll love this.
Insecure is a new HBO comedy show created by Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore. It’s partially based on her web series Awkward Black Girl, which I loved. I’m a big fan of Issa’s and I’m so happy that she was able to make her own way into TV by starting out on Youtube.
This show has already started and it is FANTASTIC. Created by Oprah and Ava DuVernay, it’s a beautifully shot drama about 3 siblings who come together to run their father’s failing sugar cane farm after he falls ill. There’s lots of drama but it feels very real and not over the top. It’s definitely a tear-jerker.
This show also already started (on the same night as Queen Sugar). It’s called Atlanta, and it was created by Donald Glover. This is a hilarious comedy about 3 guys trying to make it in Atlanta’s hip hop scene. The way this show is made–the music, the style of comedy, and the cinematography–is unlike anything I’ve ever seen on TV before. Very good show.
This Is Us
I think everyone is interested in this show…it’s a drama about a diverse group of people all born on the same day. It’s a pretty simple concept, but I think it draws people in because the characters are so relatable.
Pitch is a drama about the first woman to to play in the MLB. I’m not a big baseball fan but I’ll definitely give this a try. It stars Kylie Bunbury, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, and Ali Larter.
This is a TV adaptation of the classic horror movie. I’m really not sure about this one because I’m not sure if they could pull it off, but I might give it a try.
Frequency is about a woman who discovers she can talk to her deceased father on his old ham radio back in 1996. When she warns him of his impending death, it changes things in the present time and creates a butterfly effect that only she knows about. It’s a really interesting concept!
