What I'm Watching...{Fall 2014}

***Everything said in this post is 100% my opinion and I encourage you to make your own opinions of these shows***

Hello All,

One of my favorite things about this time of year, other then all the cliche things that make it my favorite time of year, is that new TV starts. I'm a TV nerd and I love getting engrossed with as many shows as I can. Like when I binge watch on Netflix I don't have one show I normally have 3 to 4 to bring in some variety. I figured that because everyone seems to be doing a post like that I would jump on this bandwagon as well, please don't judge how much TV I watch though because I ALWAYS have it on in the background. LOL

Returning Fall Shows
I'm going to start by sharing the shows that impressed me enough last year for me to return to their stories again this year.

-New Girl
Who doesn't love Jessica Day and her four lovable roommates. I know I do! This season opens with Jess trying to move on after her relationship with Nick. Although I don't watch this show every week I do enjoy the stories and find that in some situation Jess is my spirit animal. You can watch Jess and the gang Tuesdays at 9/8c on Fox.

- Awkward
After Jenna inspired me to blog how could I not follow her back for senior year? This year opens after the dramatic senior year ski trip and brings out the final semester for the Palos Hills High School Seniors that I have grown to love. Plus who doesn't want to  Matty McKibben every week? You can catch Awkward Tuesdays at 10/9c on MTV.

-Faking It
Hester HIgh is the high school everyone wished they went to because everyone is accepted and love but Karma just doesn't see that. So, excited to see this back and see what happens next for these characters. Faking it airs Tuesday at 10:30/11:30c on MTV.

-The Middle
I have loved the Hecks from the moment I met them and can't wait to see what can go wrong for them this year. Plus I might have a small crush on Axel. You can catch the Hecks Wednesday at 8/7c on ABC.

-Modern Family
This family is the family that we all probably wish we were from and I love that! This much like New Girl isn't a show I watch every week but when I do I totally enjoy it and can't wait to see what messes they get into. You can catch this family Wednesday 9/8c on ABC.

-Grey's Anatomy
Meredith is back with a whole new group of patients, problems and new sister. This stories may have begun to repeat themselves a little but I love to see these character grow and I will continue to return year after to year just for the characters like I will this year. You can check out these doctors on Thursdays 8/7c on ABC.

I always said when this group of seniors, the ones who were "new" when I started watching Degrassi graduated I would move on and stop watching. Well this is their senior year and I am preparing for my last semester/year at the Canadian high school that I feel in love with. Plus I need to know who Claire's Baby Daddy is (#TeamDrew). 

New Shows:
This year seems to be bring some new interesting characters to our TV screens and I can't wait to meet some and others I could live without. In this section I'm going to tell you about all the pilots I watched and whether I will be continuing through the season. 

This seems like a great concept for a TV show. It shows the back story of all these different super heros plus it has Ben McKenzie A.K.A. Ryan Atwood from the OC so I was up to give a shot. Although about 10-15 minutes I realize I know nothing about Super Heroes and figured that I would be lost trying to watch this show. Those who do have knowledge of super heroes though should watch it because the act was great. It airs Mondays on Fox at 8/7c.

-Jane the Virgin
Jane the Virgin is about a young women, around 23 years old, who is a virgin. One day she goes to her lady doctor for a regular check up who is going through a really hard time in her personal life and accidentally insemented her with sperm and she becomes pregnant. Now the show is going to follow her pregnancy and making everything work. This show has a lot of characters so I'm a little worried that it will hard to keep up with a lot of this. I probably will return and watch this show for at least the next few episodes but I'm not sure it will be one I'll stick with for good. If you want to check out the show you can watch Mondays at 9/8c on the CW. 

The concept behind this show seemed stupid but on Hulu it had a advance preview of the pilot over the summer and I thought what the Hell let me check it out and let me tell you, I LOVED it. I realized soon off the bat that it was a play on My Fair Lady but with social media image being the issue rather then the way she talked but it was funny, sweet and mindless. Do I think it will get a season 2? After one episode, probably not but I am going to watch season 1 and see what the writer's can do about it. If you want to check Selfie out you can on ABC on Tuesdays at 8/7c.

-Manhattan Love Story
This show I was a little worried about. I feel like sometimes it can be hard to watch a show that uses the off screen voices multiple time throughout the episode instead of at the end and the beginning. The main part thing that drew me in was the fact that Jake McDorman who is cute and Evan Chambers from Greek who I may have totally loved. I was happily surprised by how much I like this show. Its starts when the main characters Dana (Analeigh Tipton) and Peter (McDorman) meets and you can't hear what they are thinking throughout the experience. You can watch this love story untold on ABC, Tuesday at 8:30/7:30c. 

-Red Band Society
Before getting the advanced screen on Hulu (*I am in no way being sponsered by Hulu, I just happened to be playing around on it a few weeks ago to see these advance screenings***) I saw this advance screening for a show that I hadn't heard of but it looked interesting, so I hit played and with in minutes was in love with it. This story is told from the point of view of Charlie (Griffin Gluck) who is coma but knows everything that is going on in the hospital. But what makes this show not just another ER rip off is that its all about the Kids in peds section of the hospital. Plus you know its going to be good because it has Octavia Spencer in it. If you ask me this show has a long bright future ahead of it. You can check them out Wednesday on Fox at 9/8c.

-How to Get Away with Murder
This show drew me in instantly. I just couldn't figure out how a whole show could revolve around a 1 law class. Was going to be told in flashbacks or was it going ot be told in the presence. It intrigue me so of course I watched the pilot and it sucked me in faster then any other show that has premiered this season. You can catch this awesome new show on Thursdays at 10/9c on ABC.

Another show that had an advance screening on Hulu, A to Z falls the whole relationship of two people, from the minute they first see each other until the day that the "dating" part ends. Anyone who believes in fate and that everything happens for a reason or that somewhere out their is the one person you are meant to be with has to watch this show. You can check this cute couple out on Thursdays on NBC at 9:30/8:30c.
