article imageReview: Four new shows worth watching this fall

By Timothy Whitt     Sep 28, 2013 in Entertainment
it's the fall, schools are back in session, pumpkin spice latte is back and the fall television season is in full swing.
it is also the time of year when over 100 shows from the Walking Dead, to The Voice, to Relolution, to In the Middle have returned from summer vacation. There are also several new shows which have already debuted and are DVR worthy. Here are four of them.
Sleepy Hollow on Fox which brings the characters of Icabod Crane and the Headless Horseman into modern day New England. The show has very little to do with the Washington Irving Story except for the two main characters.
Fox's Sleepy Hollow deals with a conspiracy theory which starts during the Revolutionary War, where the British troops are working for the Devil are trying to not only topple the Colonies but bring about Armageddon. General George Washington, enlists Icabod Crane to help him try and thwart the coming Apocalypse while at the same time winning the American Revolution.
Flash forward to the 21st century where Icabod Crane and the Headless Horseman both awake to find the world a much changed place but the age old battles continues. Icabod enlists the aide of Abbie Mills to help him stop the Headless Horseman who is one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse whose mission it is to end the world.
The plot line of the show sounds a little ridiculous but fans of conspiracy theories and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Slayer will find this tale a lot of fun to watch.
Mom, a new show on CBS which stars Anna Faris as Christy a down and out mother and recovering alcoholic who is a trying to get her life back together. Christy also has past relationship issues with her estranged mother current issues with her daughter. The show is sometimes serious but is actually a well crafted comedy.
Faris is great in her role as Christy where she is able to milk each scene for the most laughs. If the rest of the season can live up to the laugh filled pilot this show will a DVR must have.
The Crazy Ones, on CBS, is Robin Williams return to television as Simon Roberts who along with his daughter Sydney run an add agency.
The show is full of Williams usual stick which at times may seem a little forced but overall the show has a lot of laughs and is worth a second watch. Williams also seems to have a true chemistry with Sara Michelle Gellar as his daughter. The show also features James Wolk, Amanda Setton and Hamish Linklater.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is the highly anticipated ABC show which features Agent Coulson from the Avengers movie. While the premiere episode did not live up to the hype, the show is still fun to watch.
The special effects as well as all the comedic interaction between the agents provides enough of a punch to carry the pilot episode along. It will be interesting to see if upcoming episodes are as fun to watch as the first. The show also boasts a surprise at the end of each episode. This weeks surprise was...well watch the episode and see.
All four of these shows seem like they will last, however in the world of television ratings anything can happens.
