TV Addicted? – What to Watch This Fall

Almost Human

“In a not-so-distant future, human cops and androids partner up to protect and serve.”

Karl Human and Michael Ealy! With the addition of Lili Taylor, Almost Human is headed by a great cast. The creator, J.H. Wyman has great credentials (Fringe) and am excepting great things from this show.

Brooklyn Nine Nine

“A diverse group of detectives at the very edge of New York City.”

I’ll watching anything with Andre Braugher.

Tomorrow People

“The story of several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers, including the ability to teleport and communicate with each other telepathically.”

Tomorrow people based on a 40 year old British show. Mmm, I am on the fence with this one. The first strike, It’s on CW. The second strike is that source material is so old that it may appear dated.


“Series introduces Dracula as he arrives in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who maintains that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. In reality, he hopes to wreak revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier”

Vampires tales never get old especially one geared towards adults. No sparkling vampires here, only Jonathan Rhys Meyers looking dandy as an American Vampire in London. Series produced in conjunction with the BBC so at the very least it should look sumptuous.

There is a whole host of new shows coming slated for the coming months and although TV has under gone a renaissance in the last few years, not a lot of shows are exciting this season.

Quick Movie Review – Dredd

Some movies purely exist to showcase 3D technology and Dredd was clearly one of them. Set in the future, a population explosion and the unrest that comes with it pushes the justice system to its limits. Since law enforcement can only respond to 6% of all reported incidences, the result is a Justice League which ordains its officers to represent a jury and a judge at the scene of each crime. In cases in which guilt is determined, the officers can sentence and execute as well on the spot. In Peach Trees, a housing complex that accommodates 75,000 people, a drug lord named MaMa is running the show from the 200th floor. When Judge Dredd and his rookie enter the complex and threaten MaMa’s tiny empire, she seals the doors of the complex and orders her foot soldiers to kill the judges. Instead of putting effort into the storyline and characters, Dredd focused on the explosions, violence and objects moving through the air. All of those effects were wasted since I saw the movie without 3D and expect a little meat with my potatoes.

Note: I really wanted to see Dredd in the theaters and was surprised to discover that it was pulled so soon.  With all of the hype, I thought it would do really well – Scifimaven
