Hot New Fall Television Series

There is now an unfortunate coolness to the air as fall is fast approaching. While I don't particularly enjoy cold weather, which is pretty avoid living in Canada (and no, we don't live in igloos), there is one thing that helps to keep me from a tailspin from summer.

While my summer is filled with a reading list (that I have not quite completed), my fall is filled with new T.V. series. And I am especially excited about three new that I will be adding to my "Must Watch" line up.

Here is the T.V. Guides write up on the shows that I won't be missing:

Premieres: Wednesday, Oct 10 at 8/7c
This is not your older brother's Oliver Queen. Stephen Amell stars as Queen, aka the Green Arrow, a wealthy playboy by day and a vigilante crime-fighter by night, in a gritty, brooding retelling of the famed superhero. Queen honed his archery skills on a deserted island for five years after surviving a boating accident that killed his father and girlfriend's sister, with whom he was having an affair. He returns to civilization to take down his dad's enemies to clear his family name (how Revenge-like!). Katie Cassidy co-stars as Queen's girlfriend, Dinah "Laurel" Lance, who may or may not be the Black Canary.

Beauty and the Beast  
Premieres: Thursday, Oct 11 at 9/8c
Kristin Kreuk and Kiwi Jay Ryan star in the titular roles, but don't expect dancing candelabras or even a hairy beast. Ryan's Vincent Keller/beast will have nothing more than a scar on his face, though his actions will get "beastlier," as the producers put it, as the series progresses. The show is a remake of the 1987 procedural starring Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman. Hamilton sent Kreuk and Ryan notes and photos wishing them good luck.

Premieres: Monday, September 17 at 10:00/9:00c
Leave it to J.J. Abrams (Lost) and Eric Kripke (Supernatural) to come up with a mythology-heavy drama. Set in a post-apocalyptic future where there is no electricity, the series stars Elizabeth Mitchell, Tracy Spiridakos, Billy Burke and Giancarlo Esposito as a group of people struggling to figure out how the technology vanished and who holds the figurative power among the survivors. We don't think this is what people meant by going green.

Any new fall shows that you are excited to see?

Ooooo. Forgot about Green Arrow! Since I don't do Apocolypses Revolution is out for me. I will check into Beauty and the Beast just to see what they do with it. I loved the world building of the old series and Perlman is still one of my favorites to follow.
