Fall Schedule Pick ‘n’ Mix

By Sara Da Silva


 

With Autumn rearing its head around the corner (although by this weather, it seems like it’s already here) I thought I’d give you a list of shows that you could attempt to catch up on. Well obviously not all of them, it’s more of a pick ‘n’ mix situation.

Side note: only one of these shows is British so, like me, you’ll have to stream the others online if you’re outside of the US. Sucks to be so far away from good television.

Doctor Who – August 23rd (BBC)

If you have been living under a rock for the past 51 years and have no clue what Doctor Who is then let me explain. Doctor Who is a British science-fiction show that follows the Doctor, a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey, who travels through time and space in his time machine, the TARDIS, that is disguised as a 1960’s police box.

Sounds pretty weird, right? It’s weird and it’s brilliant. Definitely worth a watch.

If you don’t feel like watching all 800 episodes then I’d suggest starting on the ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston). Never skip nine. Never.

Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D – September 23rd (ABC)

As I said in a previous article, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is, in my opinion, one of the greatest shows on television. It links perfectly with the Marvel universe whilst having its own gut wrenching story lines and plot twists. For more information, and if you need further convincing to watch this show, click here.

Thank heavens it’s back soon, I need my weekly Marvel fix.

Bones – September 25th (FOX)

You know something is a good when you google Bones and the first things that comes up is the television show and not the skeletal system.

Bones pretty much has it all: comedy, romance, excitement, as well as gruesome and disgusting corpses. Just how I like it. Each series tends to have an overall plot with smaller storyline intertwined. Without giving too much away, the most recent season focused on the “Ghost Killer”, Bones and Booth’s relationship, identity theft and the illness of one of the interns. Some seriously heart breaking stuff.

With the season 9 cliffhanger looming over us, this season is bound to get very exciting. So stay tuned, this is definitely a show that you don’t want to miss.

Brooklyn Nine Nine – September 28th (FOX)

This show is definitely one of the funniest on television, and it has only had 1 season so far. I was overjoyed when I heard that it was renewed for another season, and even more thrilled when I remembered that it comes back next month.

The show is based around a series of detectives working at Brooklyn’s 99th Precinct.
First there is Jake Peralta, played by Andy Samberg, who is a talented but immensely immature detective. Next is Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) who is an awkward and clumsy detective with a very big crush on fellow detective Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz), a tough and mysterious badass.

Then there’s Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews), the precinct squad leader, Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), the teacher’s pet of the precinct, and Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti) the unbelievably hilarious administrator and assistant to the strange and strict Captain, Raymond “Ray” Holt (Andrew Braugher).

Each character brings something different and special to the show. In fact, without any one of them the show just wouldn’t work as well as it does. Definitely add this to your list.

The Flash – October 7th (CW)

I am very, VERY, excited for this show. As a massive fan of Arrow, which is coming back on October 8th (HALLELUJAH), I cannot wait to finally see The Flash.

After being struck by lightening and entering a coma that lasted nine months, Barry Allen (played by the very gorgeous Grant Gustin) discovers that he has the power of superhuman speed. Ladies and gentlemen, there’s a new superhero in Central City.

From what I have seen, this show looks like it’s going to be a wild ride. And this is one ride that I can’t wait to throw up on. Wait, what?

Supernatural – October 7th (CW)

Supernatural is back for it’s 10th season. Yes, I said 10th. There’s a reason that this show has been running for such a long time, and yes you guessed it: Sam and Dean and just both so devilishly handsome. We can’t seem to get enough.

Kidding aside, this show is brilliant. I have been watching it for 5 years and it has not disappointed me yet.

Sam and Dean Winchester are two supernatural-hunting brothers who travel around America saving people from the most horrendous things. That alone should convince you to watch. The story lines are thrilling, the acting is unbelievable and the cast is just so beautiful. Wait, have I said that already?

There was a pretty massive cliffhanger at the end of the last season involving a certain someone becoming a demon. I expect big things from this season. So, here’s to ten seasons more.

The Walking Dead – October 12th (AMC)

I don’t think I need to explain why you should watch The Walking Dead. If you haven’t been watching then I need to have a word with you. Because seriously, it’s incredible. I could go on for hours explaining how perfect the characters are and how intense the plots are. But I shan’t. I’m just going to say: watch The Walking Dead. If you’re disappointed then I will take all the blame.

Click here for the full autumn schedule (of American TV).

Happy watching.

Happy Monday everyone, just a quick bit of admin to get out of the way; last month I mentioned that I’ve taken a bit more work at my night job, well this has left me with less time than I would prefer to dedicate to Axby.

I’m hoping that this will allow me to do a bit more behind the scenes to make Axby a better site for you guys.

Film

Horrible Bosses was a fantastically unexpected comedy, and when I heard it had a sequel I was even more excited, well that sequel has a trailer, and it looks like it’s going to be most excellent.

Kevin Smith, who is just as excited about Star Wars Episode 7 as the rest of us, was out discussing the new film and kind of definitely confirmed Stormtroopers sort of.
