Its only so often that you catch the first episode of a series and realize you just landed on one of your future favourite shows. It happened 2 years ago with ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and last year with ‘Happy Endings.’ I didn’t really get there this year, but I’m too hopeful to count these out.
3. Up All Night/The New Girl
The New Girl has the potential to be a little annoying, so lets just get that out of the way right now. I hope it doesn’t.
I so believe in the power of Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph. Only 2 episodes in and we’ve been given some Will Forte and Jorma Taccone. How can it lose? I’ll watch it until its off the air, even if it eventually falls flat. Of course, I said that about ‘Running Wilde’ and didn’t make it to the third episode (did Fox?)
2. The Secret Circle
I sincerely and unironically love Kevin Williamson teen dramas, The Craft and clever YouTube promos. I can look past the annoying theme song and the awful Fairuza-Balk-meets-Lucy-Hale actress because this show is guilty pleas’ at its best.
1. Pan Am
Pan Am is my favourite new series of the season!*
* Its not perfect. I’m really hoping that whole FBI/spy/unnecessary addition gets lost or killed off along the way because I love the fun, silly vibe of this show. I’m crossing my fingers that this show makes it and doesn’t go all ‘Bridget’ on me. Look at us! Inside jokes already – we’re so in love.
