Prime Picks

NCIS (CBS): New. The team investigates after a Navy lieutenant is murdered while on his way to a secret meeting with the president.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC): New. Coulson does whatever he can to save his team from multiple enemies. A doctor has a secret that could cause harm to one of the agents.

Sons of Anarchy (FX): New. The crew deals with problems arising for an ally from an old favor. Runs 76 minutes. Plays twice and again later.

Solid Selections

Selfie (ABC): Series Premiere. A top salesperson at a pharmaceutical company is hugely popular on social media, but lacks a lot of in real life friends. So, she goes to the marketing guru at the company for help changing her image. This show suffers from having the worst title for a new show this fall, but the problem is that the show isn’t much better. There are some things to like, like Karen Gillan (Doctor Who), even if she is doing an American accent of sorts. John Cho is okay, but don’t particularly like his character. The show seems to present anything social media as kind of bad, so not sure who they are trying to attract with this show. People attracted to the title or topic, will be taken aback by what it puts forth. Also, while she could use some help, it is presented as she needs to be fixed and he is the person to do it. It minorly sets forth that she may change him too, cause he not exactly a winner. There are a few funny bits and some small potential, but not really sure what the show is going to be. I mean, he can’t still be fixing her if the series were to go multiple seasons. I’ll probably give it a couple more episodes. Will you be checking it out tonight?
Manhattan Love Story (ABC): Series Premiere. A woman new to the big city begins dating a native New York City guy and we get to hear the inner thoughts of both of them as they begin a relationship. This show is terrible. The female lead is likable, but the male lead is an ass. There could be something in the basic premise, if they didn’t have the excessive inner monologues. They add nothing funny to the situations. Most of them actually make the characters even less likable. And, it is weird that they are the only ones that you get to hear from in this way. I did watch the second episode as well, and it is even worse in that one. Sometimes you even get inner dialogue followed by them then saying it out loud. It’s not the worst new comedy this fall, but it is definitely in the conversation.

New Girl (FOX): New. Jess deals with a visit from her dad and his new girlfriend, whom was her and Cece’s rival in high school.
The Mindy Project (FOX): New. Mindy comes up with a plan to get Cliff to help her out with some tax problems that could put the practice in trouble.

Person of Interest (CBS): New. Finch reluctantly helps when Reese tells him who the latest number is. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 59 minutes.
