Revolution - This one is highest on my list. Takes place 15 years after an event wiped out all advanced technology on the planet. Car engines, jet engines, batteries, and computers all turned off permanently. A world without technology, collapse of public order, areas ruled by warlords and militia. Centers around the Matheson family who are in possession of an item that is the key to discovering what happened, and possibly a way to reverse it. Airs Mondays starting September 17.
Vegas - Set in the 1960's and centered around Sheriff Ralph Lamb and his dealings with mobster Vincent Savino who has moved west to set up operations. Dennis Quaid, Michael Chiklis, Jason O'Mara, Carrie-Anne Moss. Interesting cast, but I'm not sold on the drama-western. Airs Tuesdays starting September 25.
Arrow - The Green Arrow finally gets his own show. I'm not really a fan of The CW since they ruined Veronica Mars, but I'll attempt to watch this one. Airs Wednesdays starting October 10.
Chicago Fire - The name tells you all you need to know. It's a drama, set in a fire station, set in Chicago. My expectations for this one are high, but that's because I loved Rescue Me so much. Since this one's on NBC, I doubt it will be anything close to Rescue Me. So, DVR it is. Airs Wednesdays starting October 10.
Elementary - A contemporary update of Sherlock Holmes and set in New York City. They've also updated Watson to be female (Lucy Liu). I went to see a movie at the cinema, and they had a five-minute preview for this one before the trailers. I wasn't too psyched about the show until I saw that segment. Now I'm interested, and will be checking in on this one. Airs Thursdays starting September 27.
Doctor Who - Okay, so this show already started. I'm holding off for a few episodes to be on the DVR before catching up on them all at once. Airs Saturdays.
Alphas - Already returned on SyFy and airs on Mondays.
The Walking Dead - October 14 is way too far away.
Castle - It has Nathan Fillion. Of course I'm watching it. It airs the same time as Revolution. Decisions, decisions. Returns Monday, September 24.
How I Met Your Mother - I know quite a few people have given up on this show for dragging things out too long. To be honest, I can understand that sentiment. However, I've already invested seven seasons into this show, and there's room on the DVR. I really hope they don't renew it past nine seasons. Returns Monday, September 24.
Parks and Recreation - Should be a great fifth season. Airs Thursdays starting September 20.
Community - I'll watch it, but they've been losing my interest since season two. It had a few good moments in season two and three, but I've been distracted while watching. Moves to Fridays returning October 19.
So, what are you watching?
