Don't Call it a Comeback

Well, apparently I took the entire summer off writing. To say nothing interesting happened, would be to lie. Wifey and I took a few fantastic trips. My baby boy transformed into a human being with, personality and everything. We saw couples get married, neighbors act the fool, my Dad jumped out of a plane, and I had my first Father's Day as a Dad. It was a good summer. I am also on the verge of winning my division in fantasy baseball. So that's cool.

But my passion as a writer, is usually about television. So, my first new post in a while, fittingly, has to be about all of the television I'm excited to watch next month during premiere week.

Above is mine and Katie's Fall schedule (mostly mine). I'ts kind of a weird list for a number of reasons.

1. A bunch of shows that we (I) watch during the summer aren't on it. #RoyalPains #Suits and #UnderTheDome won't be back for a while. It was easier to just leave them off.

2. A few shows don't have air dates assigned yet by their respective networks. #BetterCallSaul on #AMC, #Glee on #Fox, #Community now on #Yahoo, #OrangeIsTheNewBlack and #HouseOfCards (both on #Netflix), aren't yet listed. Some time during January or February of 2015 is the best guess, but really, who knows.

3. There are some shows that have been out, that I just haven't watched yet. #RookieBlue and #Motive are at the top of that list.

4. #DoctorWho, episode #DeepBreath was the first premiere of the season. It deserves its own blog post. It was that bloody brilliant. I watched it with my father-in-law, at his house, which should tell you my level of anticipation.

Wrapping up, I'd like to mention the shows I am most excited about returning, or debuting. #Flash, a spinoff of #Arrow will be insanely good. #NCISNewOrleans brings #ScottBakula #StarTrekEnterprise #QuantumLeap back to our small screen, and I can't wait. I've missed #BenMcKenzie from #TheOC and I think #Gotham is going to kick major ass.Who's going to die on #ChicagoFire? I dunno, but it'll probably blow my mind. And #AndySamberg might be the funniest person on tv, on the funniest show on tv #BrooklynNineNine.

As always, thank you for reading. I'll be right back tomorrow. Or next week. Or whenever.
