The Worst Looking New Fall TV Shows

So I did a “The Best Looking Fall TV Shows” post the other day so it only makes sense that I do a post for which shows look pretty terrible from their trailer/preview clips. Now this doesn’t mean that these show will actually be bad because in previous years a couple of the shows that I thought looked pretty awful ended up securing spots on my weekly DVR list. That doesn’t change the fact that as afar as first impressions go these shows are not putting their best foot forward.

The Best Looking New Fall TV Shows

The fall TV season is almost upon us and as a result the networks are revealing more and more of their line-ups so I figured I would take a gander at some of the trailers being put out for public consumption and see which ones hook me based on their 2 to 5 minutes of video. In the long run I may end up hating all of these shows but for right now these are the best looking shows based on just trailers.

My Name Is Derek And I Am Still A Hate-Watcher

It has been 2 years since the last time I wrote about my hate-watching habit and try as I might I still can’t seem to get this monkey off my back. Sure most of the shows I was hate-watching have mercifully gone to the TV show graveyard in the sky yet other shows have popped up to fill that hole in my soul that only a good hate-watch can satisfy.

The Justice League Movie Needs More Women…ASAP!

While I am over the moon with excitement for the JUSTICE LEAGUE movie (especially after the clip shown at this year’s San Diego Comicon), I did notice while looking at the team pic that WB released that the League is basically a sausage party with Wonder Woman as the lone female presence on the team. And that is something that really needs to be rectified as quickly as possible which shouldn’t be hard since DC Comics has some really cool women heroes to choose from (as the image above, wonderfully drawn by Peter Nguyen certainly proves).

Let’s Take A Moment To Appreciate The Greatness Of Amanda Waller

The SUICIDE SQUAD movie is right around the corner (and I have already bought my tickets!) and even though I have already done a post giving a glimpse into just who the members of The Squad are, the release of an Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) centered trailer got me to thinking about just how great Davis is going to be in the movie. And that got me to thinking about just how great Amanda Waller is as a character.

6 Reasons Why The 2009 Friday The 13th Reboot Sucked

There is a lot not to like about the 2009 FRIDAY THE 13TH reboot, it was awfully written (by a cadre of writers no less) and mundanely directed and had the unmitigated gall to actually have Jason Voorhees running. Running I say!!! Jason doesn’t run; he walks at a brisk pace but that is about it. But those are not even the things that I am most bothered by. So with that in mind I present to the world on this Friday the 13 of May in the year of our Lord 2016 my top 6 reasons for why the FRIDAY THE 13TH Reboot sucked.

My 5 Favorite Things About The Star Wars Holiday Special

Ah, the STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL. It is something that stirs angry feelings of resentment and revulsion in diehard Star Wars fans while to others it is just a reminder of how the TV landscape in the 1970s was a truly kooky time where anyone and everything seemed to be ripe to be given a variety show. And while I certainly do admit that the special was a horror show with some truly terrible parts (like the fact that the Life Day ceremony looked like a Glamour Shots photo), I also have some pretty fond memories of certain things that I actually enjoyed (for any number of reasons from thinking it was unintentionally hilarious to my own innate love of kitsch and camp). And it is with the holiday spirit in mind and a desire to be nice and not naughty that I compiled this little list of the 5 things I love about the STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL.
