Prime Picks

Haven (Syfy): New. Nathan attempts to protect Mara, who he believes is still Audrey. Dwight and Duke have to deal with a deadly trouble on their own. Plays again later.

Scandal (ABC): Season Premiere. Fitz and Cyrus have set out to make positive changes to the country. Everyone struggles with Olivia not around.

Parenthood (NBC): Season Premiere. Sarah takes her father to Las Vegas for his birthday. Amber deals with change. Adam and Kristina are attempting to get their charter school opened in time.

Solid Selections

Bones (FOX): Season Premiere. Booth remains in jail waiting for his trial to start. The squints investigate the remains of someone murder 16 years ago and they think it may have something to do with the conspiracy that put Booth in prison.

Sleepy Hollow (FOX): Repeat. This past Monday’s second season premiere episode, “This Is War,” replays.

How to Get Away With Murder (ABC): Series Premiere. Annalise Keating, played by Viola Davis, is a tough criminal lawyer and law professor who presents her students with a set of challenging cases to solve and then brings the smartest and most promising candidates to be interns at her firm. Also, the students that made the cut get caught up in covering up a murder. There is a duel timeline where we see things in the future and now. This is a solid show that I will probably give a couple more episodes to, so I can see how episodes will play out on a weekly basis. The main problem is that I didn’t like anyone of the characters. There doesn’t seem to be any good people hear. Nobody I wanted to root for. The murder mystery that the show will be leading up to didn’t really grab me either. Viola Davis is great, when she is on screen, which isn’t as much as you might think. Will you be checking out tonight’s premiere?
