I was so excited for Nancy Drew but the first episode threw a bucket of cold water on my expectations. The CW version of Nancy Drew is basically Veronica Mars with supernatural elements. I like Veronica Mars, but we don’t need two of her! I’m not super happy with this moody, loner, snarky Nancy. I’ve got some other thoughts on fall shows after the break, and let’s chat about our weekends!
The Unicorn, a sitcom about Walton Goggins dating after his wife dies, is okay. He’s great but everyone on the show is overacting and hamming it up. Although there have been some nice moments of support and friendship which I really like in a show.
I’m really enjoying Stumptown, the Cobie Smulders vet-turned-PI show with Jake Johnson as her sidekick. Jake did an interesting interview about why turned down leading roles to be a supporting character on a female-led show.
Emergence is this year’s weird ABC mystery drama. I think the network is contractually obligated to attempt a new version of Lost every year, and I always watch them even though they inevitably last just one season.
What I’m really looking forward to is some of the Apple TV shows coming out in November, and I plan to check out Treadstone, the Bourne show that starts tomorrow. Otherwise my TV backlog currently consists of new seasons of returning shows. I really need a free weekend to get through the new seasons of Goliath and Riviera.
What are you watching? Any new shows caught your fancy? And how was your weekend???
