Continuing our look back at my thoughts on the new fall season, with the offerings that I found myself interested in for Tuesdays.
The Conners – After a season of nostalgia and a season of curiosity, can the show finally stand on its own two feet? Time will tell.
To be honest, I don’t know how I feel about this show. I mean, it’s comfortable, like an old robe, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s any good or well worth my time.
The Flash – The gang returns for their sixth season, with Heroes alum Sendhil Ramamurthy onboard as the big bad.
Now that the Flash has survived the Crisis that had been foretold since the earliest days of the series, we’ll see how things change.
Bless This Mess – After a short run in the spring, Dax Shepard and Lake Bell return for season two, hoping to keep the momentum up for a full season.
I can pretty much take or leave this one, so I guess the decision on whether or not I continue to watch falls on ABC.
Mixed-ish – Another spinoff of Black-ish, this time focusing on Bow’s adolescence growing up with a white father and a black mother.
Well, I’ve stuck with this longer than I did Grown-ish, but that’s not particularly saying anything. I think there’s a pretty good show in there somewhere, but I’m not sure anyone, including me, knows how to get it out.
Arrow – The show returns for a short, 10 episode final season, without Emily Bett Rickards.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths is over and, while the multi-verse is safe, Oliver Queen is dead. If I’m counting right, the show will be wrapping up its run tonight.
This Is Us – The emotionally manipulative hit is back for a fourth season, assuming I ever go back and finish the previous two.
I still haven’t watched since midway through season two. At what point do I admit that I don’t watch the show and free up some space on the DVR?
Black-ish – While it is putting spinoffs on the air, I don’t know if moving back to the half hour timeslot is a good sign for a sitcom heading into season 6.
Some weeks, the show still seems like it’s firing on all cylinders. Others, it seems so tired that you can see all the seams.
Now, let’s see what interesting tidbits are coming this spring:
DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow – Coming in at the tail end of the Crisis, there will be some additional turnover this year as Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford will be leaving the show this season.
