Sci-Fi & Fantasy TV 2017-2018

Recommended Posts

The 2017-2018 network television season started yesterday. That means the return of the Arrowverse on The CW and various other sci-fi/fantasy TV shows in the coming weeks.

The Orville has already premiered on FOX. Three episodes have aired. I'm enjoying it. The promos made it look like a Galaxy Quest spoof. It's really more of an homage to Star Trek. The music is especially spot on. Anyone else watching?

I'm looking forward to The Gifted on FOX. I'll watch Marvel's Inhumans, or at least the two-hour premiere. It doesn't look good. I'm also going to watch Ghosted on FOX. I've given up on Once Upon a Time.

I can't decide whether to keep watching Supergirl. The first season on CBS was hit or miss; the second season on The CW was mostly miss. I will keep watching Arrow, The Flash, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow. Also, Supernatural. I'm still watching The Walking Dead but I did give up on Fear the Walking Dead.

I watch all the Arrowverse shows, so I'm looking forward to their return. I'm still watching The Walking Dead but only gave Fear TWD one season. I caught parts bits and pieces of it since, but nothing that suggested I made a mistake in walking away. I've also long-since given up on Once Upon a Time, Gotham, The Expanse and Marvel's Agents of SHIELD. The only new show I've picked up (or expect to) is The Orville. It's just OK. It's not really funny enough to be a comedy or interesting enough to be a drama. Very few shows have managed to be a successful one-hour dramedy, and I think they'd do better to either shorten to a half hour and punch up the funny or put more effort into being a serious sci-fi show.

Oh yea, Fear TWD is horrible.  Had to force myself to watch season 1, and only seen pieces of season 2.  

I met Scott Wilson (Hershel) at a comic con back in February.  He's an extremely cool person.  

I also met Terry Farrell, René Auberjonois and Walter Koenig.  They all were extremely nice.

I watched the first season of Fear the Walking Dead, hoping it would get good. Then I suffered through all of Season 2 before finally throwing in the towel.

I'm still watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 was a mixed bag. The first arc (Ghost Rider) was awful. The second arc (LMD) was pretty good. The third arc (Agents of Hydra) was great. I'm tentatively excited for Season 5.

Anyone watch Marvel's Inhumans last night? It wasn't as bad as reviews made it sound. But it wasn't very good. I think there are only 8 or 10 episodes. I'll probably watch them all. I'm a sucker for Marvel TV.
