TV Check-In: Returning Shows on The CW

by Matthew Thompson

Time to check in with some more of the shows I’ve been watching during the new Fall TV Season. I find myself viewing a surprising amount of shows on The CW these days. It has become a haven for various types of genre television and for that I appreciate the network. Today I’m going to chime in on the seasons so far for the non-rookie shows I’ve been keeping up with (I already talked a bit about The Flash and I hope to chime in on another freshman CW drama next week some time in my next batch of pilot reviews). Well here it goes (these contain spoilers for up to their most recent episode, so beware!) Continue reading

My Most Anticipated Returning TV Shows of the Fall

by Matthew Thompson

Last week I talked a bit about the new shows I will be checking out this Fall. This week is all about the returning TV shows I’ll be tuning into in the next few months. Once again I’ve picked out the ones I’m most excited to see for the first section. Then I will run down everything else I’ll be watching briefly afterwards. Each list is in the order they will premiere this season. This is also just Fall stuff, so nothing that is coming back next year some time. Here it goes Continue reading

TV Show Power Rankings: March 30, 2014

by Matthew Thompson

I’m back with another set of TV Power Rankings where I check in with what I believe are the five best shows going at the moment. These are very much a “what have you done for me lately” kind of thing, so they put the emphasis on the past month or so while still looking at the season as a whole. A bad week or short hiatus is enough to drop you a few spots while one spectacular episode can give you a boost. With that said here are my latest rankings (Note: The number in parentheses is their rank in the previous rankings. If they were not ranked, I put NR for Not Ranked. If you’d like to see my previous TV Power Rankings they are compiled here. I’ve also added a “Dropped Out” feature at the bottom to explain why some shows from last time didn’t stay in) Continue reading

TV Show Power Rankings: March 2, 2014

by Matthew Thompson

I decided to take the month of February off from these power rankings due to the Olympics sidelining so many of the shows I watch for the bulk of it. But with a huge slate of returning and new shows airing this past week, it was time to jump back in. With a busy month ahead, I may move to doing these every other Sunday, but I will see how I feel in a couple of weeks. As I spoke about in the first installment, these rankings take in the current season as a whole with a greater emphasis on what they’ve done lately particularly since the last rankings. With that in mind, here are the top five shows for me airing at the moment (Note: These descriptions contain spoilers for recent episodes, so if you haven’t watched the show in question, it might be best to gloss over it. Also in parentheses next to their current rank is their previous rank, if they were not ranked last time I put NR for not ranked) Continue reading
