A TO Z 5/10 - It would have been better if the entire plot of the pilot wasn’t in the trailer. The show has a cute premise, but for a comedy, it needs to be funny! We didn’t laugh once!
ABOUT A BOY 7/10 - This show came out in July, but got renewed for a second season that already premiered as well. The pilot is better than the episodes following it, but if you like the book and movie, chances are you’ll like the show. The pilot is just a compressed version.
AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW 5/10 - Didn’t seem as enthralling as other AHF seasons. Maybe it’ll get more interesting, but the premiere was just okay.
BAD JUDGE 2/10 - Lack of Story, fully not believable, bad acting from the kid, and cheap jokes! Definitely will get Cancelled!
BLACKISH 5/10 Needs to be funnier for a family sitcom, but there are some good jokes. And who doesn’t like Anthony Anderson? He’s a great lead!
CRISTELA 8.5/10 - May be the Funniest show of the season, and it’s really a shame ABC chose to put it on Fridays, the night TV is watched the least. It had some great laugh out loud moments and jokes for a multi-camera comedy. Cristela Alonzo, the main character is super likable and this show has the lovable, hilarious, and fluffy, Gabriel Iglesias. Worth Watching!
FOREVER - 7.5/10 - Another murder mystery show, but what makes this unique is the main character and his ability to come back to life after he dies. They play with this more in the pilot than other episodes, but the use of flashbacks to tie into Henry’s present day story is pretty intriguing. Jess has become a fan and I watch it just to spend time with her. (It’s a hell of a lot better than “Vampire Diaries”)
GOTHAM 8/10 - This is one that we disagreed on. I actually really enjoyed this and plan to keep watching more episodes, while Jess fell asleep during the pilot, but still managed to give it a 5.5. It’s not really about Batman if that’s what your expecting. It’s more of a cop show with bold imagination.
JANE THE VIRGIN 8/10 - A lot better than most shows on The CW. And the cast is pretty likable. Seems like the underdog show you hope will make it.
MANHATTAN LOVE STORY 5/10 - Likable female lead, unlikeable male lead. Had some cute moments, but failed to be cute or interesting most of the time. And there’s way too much voiceover. The exposition after the cold open was boring and not needed. They need to learn to Show not Tell.
MARRIED 9/10 - Another show that premiered over the summer, but it’s worth checking out if you have F/X. The pilot was fantastic! If you’re in a relationship, then you can relate to the pains of having a spouse. Although, we marathoned through this and the first 5 episodes were great, but the last 5 episodes got horrible as the characters lost their morals and the show lost it’s funny.
THE McCARTHYS - 8/10 - Surprisingly Funny! I didn’t laugh at every joke, but the jokes that got me made me laugh really hard out loud. Only saw the pilot, but I’d watch this again.
THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA 3/10 - It’s a mystery how this show got picked up?
RED BAND SOCIETY ZER0/10 - GOD AWFUL Writing, BORING, not realistic, and unlikeable characters! We had high hopes, but it’s a complete let down. You know a show is bad when you’re watching kids fight cancer and you start rooting for the cancer.
SELFIE - 5/10 Seemed more like an indie film than a TV show. And the overuse of pop culture references annoyed us. John Cho is likable, but the lead actress, Karen Gillian, needs to speak louder and not so fast. It’s not funny when you can’t understand what she’s saying.
STALKER - 7/10 Not as bad as the title makes you think it will be. Badass female lead and interesting male lead. It’s another NCIS/CSI mystery type show, but it was pretty captivating.
