Today marks the official start of the Fall TV season and the return of the Solid Selections section of the daily picks post, which gives you our second favorite show for each hour of primetime.
Alphas (Syfy): New. It looks like Hicks has gone to work for Parrish, who is trying to cause a huge blackout. Plays again later two times.
Warehouse 13 (Syfy): New. Brother Adrian begins sending dangerous artifacts to the family members of the team to try and get Artie to reverse things. Mrs. Fredric and Steve find something out at the Vatican. Plays again later.
Castle (ABC): Season Premiere. Castle and Beckett keep things to themselves as they get information about who was ultimately responsible for her mother’s death. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 59 minutes. In a word, awesome! Opens up the morning after where season four ended. It looks like they will have some fun with trying to keep things a secret while they figure things out. This episode looks to do something that I’ve been saying needs to happen besides putting the leads together.
The L.A. Complex (The CW): New. Abby is in a panic. Beth is worried about losing Simon. Nick’s career continues to falter. Sabrina gets some potentially big news.
The L.A. Complex (The CW): Season Finale. Connor needs solace after things get weird with Charlotte. Sabrina and Nick are having some problems. Abby makes a decision.
Revolution (NBC): New. They go in search of some help in rescuing Danny. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 59 minutes. Looking forward to seeing more and finding out if this show will at least maintain and begin to grow or start to falter. Hoping for the former.
