I forgot to mention in the previous post about CSI. It was cancelled last season and rightly so. The show has been going downhill ever since William Peterson left back after Season 9. It went to Season 15 before the cancellation. The last episode of last season was lame. Great news is that CBS has decided to do a proper send off and bring back both Peterson and Marge Helgenberger. I always stuck around with the show in the off-chance that both would come back. Nice to see that they are. The two-hour movie is set to air on September 27.

I recently read "Limitless" is starting out of the gate mis-stepping. It seems to be positioning itself more of a 'Superhero' type show vs. the movies presentation. I hope it works out for you.

I'm kinda getting psyched for "Into The Badlands". Since this is an AMC production, I'm expecting their stellar track record to continue. I could be wrong. This may be completely different than I anticipate.

Gotham Season 2 Episode 1

Decent episode that shoehorned more villians into the arc, but it came at the expence of The Penguin, who was by far the best thing last year. I hope this was just a small blip in the premiere and that he will be back with more screen time.

Minority Report Season 1 Episode 1

It was okay. It looks great for sure and they excelled there. But I'm not I like the idea of watching yet another procedural. Tack on the fact that MR is using the Sleepy Hollow template, another FOX show. It's kind of odd that they are going more for a comedic bent between the two leads. I will stick around for the time being.

Blindspot Season 1 Episode 1

Of the 3 shows I watched last night, this was by far the best of the bunch. There is a lot of potential here as they use Long Kiss Goodnight and the Bourne movies as their own templates. What I saw here in the pilot was very encouraging. Seems like this would be a great episode for The Blacklist to do a crossover with.

I would hope Blindspot is good... The studio sure spent the time, money and energy to promote it.

Scream Queens Season 1 Episode 1 & 2

This one clearly takes a big page from Scream and a handful of other Horror movies. But it's also pulling from a couple that you wouldn't expect. It's a cross between Mean Girls and.......Naked Gun. Kinda. It doesn't go way overboard like that, but SQ is clearly designed as a comedy. Think along the lines of Scary Movie. This is where I'm having issues with SQ. I'm not sure exactly why they keep shifting the tones between Mean Girls and NG. It's kind of an odd way to do a horror show for me. I really wasn't feeling the 2 hour premiere. I may be still dealing with the lackluster performance of Scream the TV Series and it may be tainting SQ for me. I'll stick around for a couple more episodes and see if I warm up to what they are doing with the Genre.

Scream Queens appeared to me, to appeal to a much younger audience... than me.

The Player (Season 1 Episode 1)

The Pilot of The Player turned out to be quite fun. When the TV Spots said this was going to be action packed, it was exactly that. I was on the edge of my seat for most of the episode. The premise of people betting on the outcome of Good Vs Bad isn't new, but the way it's put together makes it look fresh. You definitely have to check your brain at the door because it does require a big leap of faith in the premise to work. It was fun and I thought Wesley Snipe as the "FBI Lawyer" was hilarious. I'm definitely on board for the series.

It's happening, I'm psyched, Netflix IS making 12 new episodes of Black Mirror.  I don't know if this is gonna be one big release or if it's gonna be 3 at a time for four years, but either way, this is pretty sweet news.

Limitless Season 1 Episode 1

I just got finished watching Limitless and it was a great opener to the series. The main reason why I wanted to check this one out was because Jennifer Carpenter is in it. I've been a fan of hers going back to Dexter so I was curious to see her playing another FBI agent. But what about the show itself? You really do need to suspend your disbelief for this show to work. How else are you going to get on board with the idea that a pill can basically turn people into that of a Superhero. All the stuff I got to see him do during the Pilot was fun and I want to see more. I'm on board for this for sure. I also like that they have built into the opener a mythology relating to the mysterious inventor of the pill. Cool cameo by Bradley Cooper.

The Muppets. Season 1 Episode 1

Liked it. A lot. This isn't the same Muppets of my youth. Wasn't expecting them to use adult humor at all, but it's definitely the right way to go because I don't think a 'Saturday Morning' version of the show would work in this day and age. I'm definitely on board for this for the rest of the season.

Grandfathered Season 1 Episode 1

I had no desire to ever watch this, but given the fact that there was absolutely nothing else on.....why not. Looks like we got a sleeper hit on our hands. It was a fun half hour and much better than I thought it would be. I like the cast of characters. The Bob Saget cameo was a nice touch. I expect to see more in the future. John Stamos could have not one, but two hit series on at the same time. The other of course being Full House 2.0 or whatever it's called.

The Grinder Season 1 Episode 1

Even though I had intentions of checking this out, my enthusiasm was low. It's on FOX and I kinda got the feeling this was going to be a placeholder show for something else. This quite possibly will be my favorite comedy of the season. Loved it! It was damn funny. Rob Lowe has another series on his hands that can go the distance. I hope people give this a chance. Definitely worth checking out. Great to see Fred Savage back on TV again. Based on tonight's episode, I can see each episode ending in grand fashion in the same way you get in Big Screen Movies that take place in the courtroom. I'm down for that.

Was Natalie Morales in the first episode of The Grinder? Love her (she was Lucy in Parks and Rec).

I didn't see her anywhere in the episode. Maybe a cameo or something that I didn't notice at the time.
