The Hot Mess (that looks to be) NBC’s “Emerald City”

NBC is a network that has as many hits as they do misses – and with the release of the trailer for their January slated Emerald City, I’m going to speculate that they might have another misfire on the horizon. But hey, I thought Once Upon a Time would only last one season, so who am I to judge?

Why Netflix’s “Stranger Things” Is The Show I’ve Been Looking For

Ever since the term “binge-watching” came to be, I had a hard time finding myself a part of the phenomena. Netflix has been considered the cornerstone of said trend, producing some of the greatest TV programming over the past few years – but it sadly never caught on in my household.

I’m watching any and all pilots I want and checking out shows that I wasn’t even sure I wanted to watch based off of the promos. That means deciding whether I want to watch a show is saved for after watching the pilot, while knowing that a show can ultimately change a lot from its pilot episode. How then to decide? I use a few different criteria.

New Fall 2015 TV Shows To Check Out

Now that September has rolled around, it’s hard for me to not start thinking about all the new shows I want to watch. Sure, I get excited about returning shows too, but it’s the potential of finding a new favorite that really makes me love the season (well, that and Halloween. Halloween is my favorite part of fall). Without further ado, I present to you my list of new shows I am excited for in fall 2015!

New Summer Shows: Promo Round-Up

Somehow I managed to be oblivious to most of the new shows that were premiering this summer – I blame the haze of packing and graduating and traveling. But hey, now I have a BA! So for this week’s post I did a round of new shows that have just premiered or will be premiering sometime this summer that I think sound intriguing, or might be of interest to my fellow Geekettes. Lots of promos below!
