Supernatural TV successes

I know I’ve fallen behind with nongaming blog posts, but I do hope to catch up on genre entertainment reviews, food observations, and more in 2014.

I just caught up on the half-season finales of the supernatural trifecta of Sleepy Hollow, Grimm, and Dracula. I’m pleased that all three have been firing on all cylinders lately!

NBC’s fantasy/horror

High melodrama, plot twists, actual character development, and sprinkles of violence have made all three must-watch shows in a crowded genre TV season.

 I’ve also been enjoying Almost Human, Person of Interest, and Arrow, and I was happy with the return of Sherlock as a counterpoint to Elementary.

I’ll be catching the premiere of Black Sails this weekend. I also look forward to the eventual return of Orphan Black, Continuum, Vikings, and Doctor Who.

I’m still hanging in there — just barely — with Agents of SHIELD, Revolution, and Atlantis in the hopes they’ll improve. Psych and Warehouse 13 should wrap up OK, but Castle and White Collar may have jumped the shark with forced conflicts.

In animation, Dragons: Defenders of Berk is entertaining while I wait for How to Train Your Dragon 2 and the return of Avatar: Legend of Korra, but superhero representation has dropped with the untimely cancellation of Beware the Batman and the weak representation of Avengers Assemble.

We’ll see if there’s room for Defiance, Da Vinci’s Demons, or other newer shows in my busy schedule. So much to watch, so little time!

  1. thanks — I’ve been enjoying Grimm and new shows Sleepy Hollow and Dracula. I’m still catching up on recordings from when I was out, but I’m enjoying what I’m seeing — with some shows now done for the season, that frees up some space for me. I haven’t given up on Defiance, yet :-)
