    The "Sleepy Hollow" premiere and "Under The Dome" season finale did really well.

    I loved Sleepy Hollow and only watch Under The Dome because it came right after and wasn't impressed. Hope Sleepy Hollow can hold on to a 3.0 ish ratings and then maybe Fox wouldn't cancel it mid-season. LOL

    I enjoy Murdoch. I'm about halfway through the sixth series on Acorn TV. It is light-weight and sometimes silly, as you said, but I like the way historical figures are often brought in. I don't know if they're accurately portrayed, but it doesn't matter to me. And I love the blustery boss.

    ^This. Really liked the main characters, but so much was tossed at us in the pilot that it feels like they will burn through every historical/fictional trope they can possibly pull in to the story in a very short amount of time.

    I'm also a bit suspicious that Crane wasn't more freaked about taking orders from a woman - and a black woman to boot. That's such an obvious plot point for someone who's been awakened after 250 years.
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    Wait until Crane finds out about same sex marriage. He just might like the 21st century.

    I didn't watch the first two American Horror Stories because I'm not all that into horror, but I'm looking forward to this one because I've always been interested in witches. I can't wait!

    Enjoyed the Bones premiere last night. Officially, the character of Angela is so on my nerves. I can't stand her self-righteous snarkiness. But I'm glad Booth and Bones are back on track, even though the wedding has been postponed.

    I really enjoyed it too. Thought it was the best episode they've had in a while. Even Daisy amused me. I liked the new characters, too.

    Daisy is totally cray-cray.

    I think the payoff for getting Pelant is going to be BIG!!

    Anyone else watch Brooklyn Ninety-Nine? I thought it wasn't bad -- or at least it had enough in it that I think it could be quite good once it finds its groove. It wasn't quite satirical enough to be a satire, or wacky enough to be a screwball comedy, but I think that will even out. Andy Samberg is entertaining (for now, anyway -- that act could get tired), and I've always liked Andre Braugher.

    The only thing that really bugged me was the "necktie as team uniform" bit. Hello, you have 2 women detectives on the "team" -- how does that fit in? That was just bad writing. What's the point in being gender balanced if you go and screw it up like that?

    The whole rushed feeling is a typical Fox pilot. Can't have it take time you know, can't have it be two hours. (see Firefly)

    I'd like them to back off on Crane being so accepting as well. It's not that he can't get there, but it should take time. Let's put it down to the stress of the situation...yeah...that'll work.

    As for the mish-mash, at least we know the players. Remeber - this is only the 1st Horseman of the Apocalypse, we've got 3 to go.

    btw - if anyone is interested in the Jeff Jensen treatment - here it is: http://popwatch.ew.com/2013/09/16/fox-sleepy-hollow/

    I have yet to see all of the stories. It started out not on CBC - don't know the other network (CTV maybe?), so I didn't get it. I've seen the first 3 seasons on Netflix, but didn't get to see four or five. Although I spoiled myself on them. When 6 started, I thought I'd hold out to see if the other seasons would be on Netflix, but gave in about 1/2 way through. So I'm totally ready for 7 - which is going to be 18 eps long!

    I've also been enjoying the books, which are different, of course. (So far no Tesla, or Houdini in sight!) But I think having seen the show before reading the books, is why, although Yannick Bisson may aslo have something to do with it!

    I used to watch Murdoch not anymore. I gave up on the series after he, who is supposed to be so straight laced, set free a serial killer who also tried to kill him. Haven't watched it since, because the Murdoch character i liked would have arrested her anyway. JMVHO

    I liked it. Very sharp writing. And it's a good lead-up to New Girl. My hope is that a bit more warmth between the characters develops. If they become more antagonistic, they'll lose me.

    Thanks for these links. All of these are mid-season shows, so we probably won't get to see them until 2014, but it's nice to have a sneak peak. My thoughts:

    Resurrection. Wow, this looks AMAZING. Looks brilliantly done, had to get a hankie! Frances Fisher is a plus, even makes up for the fact that Brad Pitt is one of the producers.

    Believe looks more like a motion picture trailer than a TV promotion. Maybe that's because it's created by J.J. Abrams and directed by Alfonso Cuarón (Harry Potter, Pan's Labyrinth, Gravity, etc.). They went with the less is more method for the trailer though, so I'm not yet hooked but certainly hope to be!

    Intelligence: Great cast! (Josh Holloway and Marg Helgenberger) Not really my kind of show, but I'll give it at least a one (or two because of Holloway!) episode shot.

    Star-Crossed has a great premise, but it's been doused mercilessly in CW-ness...

    The 100...see above. How does the CW get these great premises and then fills up their shows with moronic, two-dimensional characters? Cast plus: Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond from Lost). Cast negative: homophobe Isaiah Washington (Grey's Anatomy).
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I am intrigued by Resurrection but not sure if the show is a drama, sci-fi, mystery, horror or what. Guess I should read the book before watching the show.
