OK, so these next few days, weeks or months I will be doing Bishop’s Top 3. Part 1 will be my 3 favorite new shows from last season. So here we go!
Once Upon a Time was epic at some points of the season, but others felt too soap-opera-y. It still was an enjoyment to watch, though. Terra Nova was a fun show to watch, too bad it was cancelled. Same goes for The River. All of these shows were new, different and deserved being mentioned in this category. Terra Nova and The River will surely be missed.
3. New Girl
New Girl was one show where I hated it when I saw the commercials on TV. It looked stupid and unfunny, so I avoided it. Eventually, I was able to watch the 2nd episode, which I sort of enjoyed. As the show progressed, I began to enjoy the majority of the characters. The stupidity changed to quirkiness, and I was eventually engrossed in the series. My two favorite characters would have to be Nick and Schmidt. I can’t wait to watch next season, which will hopefully be as good as the last half of the season. Now on to #2!
2. Person of Interest
What can I say, I love a good action show. This stars Jim Caviezel, also known for playing Jesus in Mel Gibson’s film, The Passion of the Christ. In the show he sort of reminds me of Batman, which may be due to the series being created by Jonathan Nolan, writer of those epic Batman movies. Each episode is like a mini-movie, a trait that made me love the short-lived series, Human Target. If you were unable to watch this show and you love action movies, I strongly recommend that you find a way to watch this. The finale may not have been the greatest one of the year, but it was still a great episode that set up many possibilities for next season. I can’t wait to see more.
No one is probably surprised by this. It is the only TV series that I have reviewed twice. At least, I think it is. I have been doing this for quite some time now. Anyways, this show has everything I love. It is creepy, funny and has action. I know this isn’t everyone’s favorite show, but I love it. If you loved Buffy, Angel or any creepy, campy supernatural shows, you might just fall in love with this show too. It has great characters, episodes and progression. The first episode differs greatly from the last, to a point where it is evident that the show found its own identity. Grimm’s best feature is that there is nothing like it on TV. Yeah, yeah, Once Upon a Time deals with fairy-tales, but to a different extent than Grimm.
All shows mentioned here were great, but what were your favorite shows? Be sure to speak your mind.
