Fall TV Season is upon us. Even though quite a few shows got an early start this month, this week is the official season premiere week. Beware, this post will be huge!
Season Finales: Top Gear, Warehouse 13
Pick of the Week
Dexter Channel: SHO Time: 9/8c Starring: Michael C. Hall, Julie Benz, Jennifer Carpenter, Desmond Harrington, C.S. Lee, Lauren Velez, David Zayas, James Remar Premieres: Sunday, September 27 Trailer
Synopsis: Dexter got married and found out he had a kid on the way. Can a serial killer really have the perfect life? This season also stars a very successful serial killer for Dexter to admire, played by John Lithgow.
My Take: I keep wondering how long the show can last before it’ll burn itself out since he can’t keep killing forever, can he? But I’ll continue to watch it as it continues to be so very excellent.
No one wanted to compete with Watchmen this weekend so it is the only major release. None of the limited releases are very buzz worthy, even though a few of them look good.
Watchmen Directed: Zack Snyder Starring: Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Carla Gugino, Jackie Earle Haley Trailer
Synopsis: Set in an alternate 1985 where Nixon is still president and masked superheroes are seen as vigilantes, someone has killed one of them, but no one knows why.
My Take: The comic book is awesome and I’m curious to see how it has been translated to screen since it has been said to be “unfilmable.”
RT Score: 65% RT Consensus: Gritty and visually striking, Watchmen is a faithful adaptation of Alan Moore’s graphic novel, but its complex narrative structure may make it difficult for it to appeal to viewers not already familiar with the source material.
Synopsis: They will travel to new locations this 13th season, such as Cambodia and Kazakhstan. Also, one team will make a huge mistake that will keep them for making it to the finish line.
My Take: This is my favorite reality show. I love to see the destinations and the challenges are usually related to something specific about that culture. Also, the people that know each other already have the built-in mechanisms for arguing, which is fun to see heightened with lack of sleep.
