Default What new TV shows are you looking forward to?

I think it's fair to begin a new thread for this. It's different to "what shows are you watching", and should only feature shows that have not yet aired (or only begun to air) either side of the Atlantic.

As with most TV threads, I think it would be appreciated by all if you would kindly check your spoilers at the door with your coat, or at least wrap a SPOILER tag around them. Thanks.

Personally, the following look interesting:

Sinbad (I know they've done it before, but I'm anxious to see how they handle this one)

The Newsroom (Sorkin. Need I say more?)

Awake (is this showing already?)

Nikita season 2 (Loved the original, the remake is pretty damn fine too)

Revenge (Not sure, but it looks good)

NOT looking forward to:

Falling skies season 2
(first few eps bored the hell out of me, which is kind of odd for a Spielberg-fronted drama, but I just couldn't care about the characters, the story or, well, anything about it)

Don't get your hopes up about Awake. They axed it after 13 episodes.

I lost interest in Revenge after the first few episodes. I guess it just wasn't my kind of show.

Great. Could my week get any worse?

I HATE it when they axe shows on the first season, particularly good ones: Brimstone, The Crow: Stairway to Heaven, The Chicago Code, Studio 60... damn them all! Just when you're getting into them, BANG! they're gone.

Does Awake end on a cliffhanger? If so I won't bother. I hate being left, um, hanging, with no resolution ever going to show its head.

PS I finally got to see Farscape: the Peacekeeper Wars. Now THAT'S the way to wrap everything up neatly, after the series ended so badly!

It does.

Shame, because I was very fond of the series.

I'm kind of hoping this new CW show Arrow doesn't suck. I've always liked Green Arrow as a character and it was fun in the '70's when they teamed him up with Green Lantern so they could fight crime and debate their political philosophies (GA is liberal while GL is conservative). I'm not holding out too much hope that this will be a show worth watching, but I'll still watch the pilot episode. Other than that I really have nothing else lined up at least until Boardwalk Empire starts back up again.

Dude, that was easily my fav show this year. Like a cheesy soap opera, but with at least halfway decent acting and production values, so it's not as ridiculously goofy as so many soap operas. Of course I also do not have Cable, so I'm not saying it was actually the best show this year.

Well, it's not new, but I'm pretty amped for this:


I'm not sure where they'll go after the way season four ended (it could easily have been the series finale), but if season five holds even a weak burning candle to the rest of the series, then I'm sure I'll be satisfied and then some.

I always look forward to a new series of Dexter and the first ep of The Newsroom was pretty good. Except for the woman putting on the overly English accent. I can't stand that.
