Thursday Thirteen – What I’m Watching This Fall

Welcome to this week’s Thursday Thirteen 🙂

I love Fall.  Cooler weather, school starting, Halloween and the holidays fast approaching …. and new TV shows to be discovered.

I vividly recall waiting anxiously for each network’s special programs teasing new Saturday morning offerings when I was a kid.  I remember begging to watch them on the Thursday and Friday nights before the debut on Saturday.  And gleefully marking up the Saturday page in the TV Guide to plan my precious morning hours of cartoon watching.  Oh, the agony when things were scheduled at the same time!

Thankfully, the invention of the DVR, streaming services and all the other technological wonders of our time make it possible to keep up with three (or four) shows on at the same time 😉  Woot!

Here’s what we (kids and I primarily) will be watching this fall… both old favorites and new discoveries (hopefully worth the time) in no particular order:

1 – Sleepy Hollow  We watched the first episode already this week.  I rather like the twists and turns and incorporating a few unexpected elements (Four Horsemen, anyone?).  Of course, I also have an overwhelming desire to start Glendon Place’s Sleepy Hollow design for stitching while watching… think the show will be on long enough to finish it if I work on it an hour at a time?

2 – Haven  One word: Duke.  Yum.

3 – Castle Two words: Nathan Fillion Oh, yeah.

4 – Arrow We tried the first couple episodes when the series started last year.  It kept falling down the priority list and we abandoned the show.  But then they added John Barrowman and, by all accounts, it found its stride and got much better.  This will need a catch up and we should be up to date by the end of the year.

5 – Dracula I can’t resist a sexy vampire and Jonathan Rhys Myers should make a good one.

6 – Once Upon a Time Last year, we were in catch up mode ahead of the start of season two.  We are now fully invested and ready for the return!

7 – Once Upon a Time Wonderland Seems like a no-brainer to give this a try.

8 – Grimm Part of the reason we didn’t start Once Upon a Time from the beginning was the similarity to Grimm (yes, I know, they aren’t alike at all….mea culpa).  The cries of “Oh no! Monroe!” will be heard again at the Acre this fall.

9 – Supernatural One of our “catch up” shows from a couple years ago.  I just want to bake Dean a pie and give Sam a hug.  Oh, and I miss Bobby 🙁

10 – Dancing with the Stars Still undecided on the changes made for this season… but the cast is pretty entertaining!

11 – Almost Human Another show that captured my attention due to its star… hello Karl Urban!

12 – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Coulson Lives!!

13 – Ironside I watched the original Ironside, so I have to check out the reboot 🙂

I foresee quite a bit of stitching time in the coming weeks….we’ll see how many are still around at the end of the year.

  1. Clearly we were on a mutual wavelength today. 🙂

  2. We’re watching most of the same shows – just caught Sleepy Hollow last night, and we’re going to have to play catch up on Haven and Supernatural. Hopefully it will be an awesome season of television!
