I know, I'm not AliasJohnDoe ;), who I'm sure will come and launch this thread properly ... I just wanted to get it started because I spotted that two new "fall" comedies are piloting tonight. I'm particularly interested in Go On (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2300923/), because I figure that one of these days Matthew Perry has to have some good luck with a series!

That's followed by Animal Practice (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2246569/), which could be hilarious or could be really stupid.

Go On is on NBC (and Global in Canada) at 10:00, Animal Practice at 10:30. (The NBC site actually has the Go On pilot listed for Sept 11, so tonight is probably a sneak peak.)

In terms of returning shows, circle Sept 30 on your calendar: that's when Revenge, Once Upon a Time, and The Good Wife all come back. (Though, again, why on earth did they have to move Revenge to Sundays? There's already a ton of good stuff on that night!)

I just discovered that Grimm returned last week - I almost missed it! Luckily my PVR got it. :)

SyFy is commissioning two pilots, one from Bryan Fuller and one from M Night Shyamalan. The one from Fuller, called High Moon, looks more interesting to me.

Syfy is greenlighting Reunion Pictures’ new series pilot High Moon, an adaptation of John Christopher’s best-selling novel The Lotus Caves...

High Moon creates a future where the countries of Earth have established colonies to mine the Moon’s resources. When a new life form is discovered, chaos erupts as various factions race to uncover and exploit its powerful secrets.

In Proof, after the tragic accident and sudden death of his parents, the son of a billionaire tech genius offers a large reward for anyone who can find proof of life after death.

I watched about 10 minutes of the preview episode and turned it off. Ugh!

I watched the preview of "Go On" during the Olympics, and while it could probably get old after a while, I was amused enough to watch the whole thing.

I'm just sitting here waiting for the season premiere of NCIS, what with the cliffhager. Now, it helps to know the whole cast has had their contracts renewed and in particular that "Word of God" is Ducky is not dead but I'm still on tenterhooks.

Where are the polls?

You know--normally you see a lot of previews during the summer but I must have missed them. The one show I'm not thrilled about---Elementary---is the one that I see regularly. CBS must be banking on that one.

Go On wasn't bad. A bit clumsy and rushed to introduce everything, but the ending was a good pay-off. (Though I'm thinking I'm being more charitable toward it because I like Matt Perry so much.)

I gave Animal Practice about 5 minutes before turning it off. I did record the whole thing though so I might go back to it to see if there's anything worthwhile there.

But I'm very excited about a "new" (to me) series coming to Knowledge Network in BC: Miss Fisher Mysteries (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1988386/). I've read a few of Kerry Greenwood's novels and thought they would make a good TV series. If for no other reason than I love drooling over the 20s fashions and decor.

Flashpoint is being moved to fall... and it is going into its last season. :fragile: :wuzrobbed This is by far the show I am most anticipating.

Grimm is finally available on OnDemand and I'm watching it right now. :cheer2:

I'm looking forward to Chicago Fire. I love cop/fire dramas and have been so disappointed in every new one I've watched since my favorite Third Watch (Best.Show.Ever) was canceled. Please please please let Chicago Fire be a good show!!

And can't wait for the return of Scandal.

I want to see Revvolution because I am a huge sci-fi fan but have to admit that the trailer does nothing for me. Plus they allot canceled after a few episodes anyway so why bother.

^ That's funny. I actually want to watch Revolution because of the trailer. :lol: When I read about it, it didn't interest me, but then I saw the trailer and got excited about it. I'm interested to see how/why the lights go out and never come back on. I'm hoping the story won't get too crazy that its loses it initial plot.

New season 2 photos from Person of Interest here (http://www.cbs.com/shows/fall-previews-2012/photos/166628/person-of-interest) and here (http://www.tvrage.com/news/1681/person-of-interest-new-photo-shows-finch-s-hostage-situation). I'm freaked out for poor Finch -- you can see a cut on his hand in one photo, and bandages in a couple of the other photos. Root is clearly not a very nice kidnapper, as kidnappers go! Hope Reese shoots her full of holes.

I had no idea this was a Canadian show (or set in Canada!). I remember when it was introduced as a CBS summer series, and I liked it well enough, but it wasn't brought back...but then it seemed there would be new episodes to fill in whenever there was a break or a cancellation, so I knew it had continued but it was so random :lol:

I remember Enrico Colantoni from back in the Just Shoot Me days, but he'll always be Keith Mars to me :cheer2:

I saw the premiere ep of Go On during the Olys...it was ok, but I wouldn't bother watching it again.

I just got caught up on the first 2 eps of Grimm :cheer2: I don't entirely trust Nick's mother...was wishing he hadn't showed her the trailer and given her the coins, but I guess she's on the up and up. Don't like the growing distance between Nick and Hank, wish Juliette hadn't woken up, and love that Rosalee is now a regular character!

Renard's reaction to the potion :rofl: I'm not convinced that my response to intense pain or whatever would be to thrash myself over to every single table, bureau, cabinet, whatever and to sweep all the contents to the floor, but hey, I'm not a barely human member of the "royal family" ;)

The one new show I'm excited about is Revolution, but like Buzz, I have to assume it'll get cancelled right away so I shouldn't get too attached.
