The Best Looking New Fall TV Shows


HIEROGLYPH (FOX)

hieroglyph

The world of ancient Egypt – a time of magic, Pharaohs, gods and thieves – lives again in HIEROGLYPH, an exciting action-adventure series from creator/executive producer Travis Beacham (“Pacific Rim,” “Clash of the Titans”).
When a dangerous scroll, The Book of Thresholds, is stolen from Egypt’s most secure vault, master thief AMBROSE (Max Brown, “Beauty and the Beast,” “MI-5”) is plucked from prison to track down the perpetrator. Having spent the past five years in the darkest of pits, Ambrose quickly learns that his prison cell might be safer than the dangerous new world in which he finds himself: Atum, the empire’s capital.

HIEROGLYPH starts out looking like an ancient Egypt set story of love and betrayal against a backdrop of palace intrigue and then it makes a sharp turn into WTF? land by introducing vampires. I am still trying to figure out what exactly the main objective of this show is but I can’t deny that I am intrigued as hell about where the showrunners plan on taking things. It also helps that the show looks great…I don’t know the budget per episode but just from the trailer things look pretty expensive. So I’ll be watching if for no other reason to see if the show embraces the silliness of ancient Egyptian vampires.

    The Whispers will be on my recording schedule. Why? Two words: Lily Rabe.

      Rabe is great and the show looks like it will be really good. And considering ABC gave that Resurrection show a second season has me optimistic that they’ll give The Whispers a decent shot.
