5 Shows After Dark: More of This Sort of Thing

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | October 10, 2012 | Comments ()


"Arrow" on The CW at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. The year of the archer continues with a new version of the Green Arrow showing up on The CW. The actor playing Arrow/Oliver Queen looks like a budget version of Henry Cavil and the backstory sounds like Batman with a touch of Castaway mixed in. Still, year of the archer!

"Modern Family" on ABC at 9:00pm ET.

"Chicago Fire" on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new show about a fire house and there's been several shows about fire houses and emergency responders that have come and gone over the years. I wonder why hospital shows and cop shows are so successful but emergency responder shows don't work out.

"Nashville" on ABC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. Tami Taylor is a country star, y'all! You know that's the only reason you're thinking of watching.

"The Soup" on E at 10:00pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess Is thrilled to have worthwhile television to write about again. At least for the moment.

    The music on Nashville is shockingly good. (Also, totally watching it for my Tami Taylor fix.)

  • Eeeeeep Oooooop Aaaank Hoooonk... Squad 51 Station 51... Structure fire. 1436 Sepulvada. Cross street Topanga. Time out 11:37...

  • BierceAmbrose

    I never knew how to spell that, but ... of course, that's it right there.

    I w0onder, is there some computer "text to bleepage / bleepage to text" thing? Seems more Android than iPhone.

    We're on our way, Rampart!

  • My favorite thing about Emergency was when the eep oonk honk would go on and on. Then you knew that some major shit was going down, like a fire at a oil refinery or an airliner crash.

    And Nurse Dix instilled in me the appreciation of older women that has served me well all of my life.

  • Mr_Zito

    I thought Arrow was a spin-off of Smallville. It being a new show means it has a chance of being good?

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Gods, I hope it's not a spin-off. Granted, it could mean more Allison Mack in my life, but the chance for that would be the same for the rest of the actors of Smallville.

  • I'm afraid Chicago Fire needs to be cancelled because I will require there to be more seasons of Battleground, and thus Teri Reeves cannot be committed to another series.

  • JenVegas

    I'm afraid it needs to be cancelled because it was better when it was a movie called Backdraft.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    And even better when it was Backdraft: The Musical.

  • 724wd

    he should relax his grip. way too much torque with a death grip like that.

  • Groundloop

    Father McNeely used to tell me to relax my grip.

    Oh..I'm fine. Why do you ask?
