Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC): Series Premiere. The world is dealing with finding out that aliens and superheroes exist. Agent Phil Coulson begins to assemble a small group of very skilled agents. The team gets their first assignment, which is to find a man with potentially dangerous powers. Runs 61 minutes. This is the one network fall show that I haven’t gotten to see yet and am very much looking forward to doing so. How about you?
New Girl (FOX): New. Jess goes to Nick for help in trying to fit in with the other teachers at her new school. Winston thinks Daisy is cheating and begins to plot his revenge.
The Mindy Project (FOX): New. Mindy sets out to get her old life back, but has to deal with the new Dr. L to do so. Danny begins a new hobby.
Sons of Anarchy (FX): New. Jax works to put together a new alliance for the club. Clay attempts to make some moves from inside to get protection. Runs 73 minutes. Plays twice and again later.
Whose Line Is It Anyway? (The CW): Season Finale. Comic Nyima Funk joins the panel and Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson joins in for a couple of games. A repeat episode follows.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (FOX): New. Jake believes he is above the case he is working on until he finds out who is the culprit. A friend of Gina’s bothers Charlie.
The Goldbergs (ABC): Series Premiere. It’s basically The Wonder Years set in the 80s. The family structure is very much the same, as is the voiceover. I liked it and look forward to seeing more, but it may just be my tendency to like things set in the decade I grew up. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 30 minutes.
Trophy Wife (ABC): Series Premiere. Kate offers to go to a parent-teacher meeting in the midst of still feeling like she has to prove herself to her husband’s ex-wives and her three stepchildren. Starts a minute after the half hour and runs 29 minutes. This is one of my favorite new comedies this fall. The title of the show isn’t doing it any favors, as it is about a woman that is much more than a trophy wife. The cast is fantastic and there is lots of area’s to explore with this family dynamic. I talked about The Goldbergs, Trophy Wife and the rest of the ABC Fall Schedule with @mytakeontv and @raelee on the TV times Three Podcast.
Person of Interest (CBS): Season Premiere. Reese and Shaw find some difficulties attempting to locate a naval officer during Fleet Week. Carter puts goes ahead with a plan to root out who set her up. Root begins to tests things at the hospital she is at. Check out some video interviews with the cast about the new season and a photo gallery from Comic-Con 2013.
