List-O-Rama: 4 New Fall Television Shows That Might Not Suck
You may have noticed that we kind of love television around here. And, no, there’s nothing incongruous in liking both books and television—I swear. Stories are awesome in any medium.
I was perusing my beloved Entertainment Weekly on Friday (yay! my mailman didn’t “borrow it” this week) and while most everything looks atrocious (I’m looking at you New Matthew Perry “Comedy”), a few of the shows piqued my interest.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t really even understand what this show was about before I added it to this list, but it’s starring Tami Taylor, so I’ll watch it regardless. But, it’s gotten really good buzz and sounds like it’ll be a pretty interesting show. Whatshername from Heroes plays an evil Taylor Swift-type, so what could go wrong?

Revolution - NBC, Monday at 10:00p.m.
Revolution appears to be The Hunger Games-meets-Jericho but with crossbows, so what could possibly go wrong? Plus, it’s a J.J. Abrams vehicle and I keep hoping he’ll recapture that Lost magic.

This is another one that’s going to suck, I’m sure, but I’m a sucker for the premise that Watson is female because Sherlock Holmes is so weird with women in the books. And the fact that they’re dealing with Holmes being an addict is intriguing.
I have to admit, I also may accidentally watch Arrow, because, you know archery and the CW have got to be a match made in Heaven, right? And that firefighter show could be “entertaining.” Ahem. But there is not enough money in the world to pay me to watch the WTFery that’s destined to be Animal Practice. I mean, how is that a real television show?
Are you looking forward to anything from fall’s new television offerings?
