5 Shows After Dark: More Pretty People Pretending to be Teenagers. Mysterious Teenagers.

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | October 22, 2013 | Comments ()


Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD on ABC at 8:00pm ET.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Fox at 8:30pm ET. Sometimes I list shows that people love to pop up and mention in the comments just to see if I can catch someone who’s not actually reading the list and just dropping in to mention the show they ASSUME I missed. This is one of those times.

Ravenswood on ABC Family at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new spin off from Pretty Little Liars, according to the internet. And here’s the thing: I realize we all like to make a lot of noise about original shows and recycling and argle bargle, but spin-offs seem to have been a thing basically since television started. The Jeffersons was a spin off of All in the Family, Frasier was a spin-off of Cheers, and all those other ones that weren’t as wildly successful that I’m too lazy to look up. Besides, a lot of original concept shows blow. So, you know, I’d rather focus on what’s good television then how, exactly, it came to be.

The Mindy Project on Fox at 9:30pm ET.

Sons of Anarchy on FX at 10:00pm ET.

  • Kevin McHargue

    Spinoffs go back even farther than television - arguably to Shakespeare. After Queen Elizabeth saw Henry IV, she reportedly asked for a play featuring "Falstaff in love," which led to The Merry Wives of Windsor. Falstaff was the Rhoda Morganstern of his time.

    Is that Barry Watson in his 7th Heaven heyday up there? Because it sure looks like it

  • Chad Bradbury

    My friend just named his newborn son Jax...short for Jaxon. He always said he'd name his son after Son of Anarchy, I just never thought it would actually happen.

  • Ian Fay

    Is his full name Xmas Jaxon Flaxon Waxon?

  • F'mal DeHyde

    That warning about how being a "douche" can get you banned kind of confuses me. Is that the same thing as being an asshole? Asshole I understand.

  • firedmyass

    Well, crap. Considering that I've trademarked the phrase "Accidental Asshole," I am soundly boned.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    Okay, I'll try to behave.

  • Repo

    Sons has come back STRONG this season, something I didn't think possible. I've gone from grudge watching it out of loyalty off the dvr to actually being excited it's on tonight.

  • I'd still like them to go back to regular episode length but it is otherwise shockingly good.

  • Even Stevens

    DAMMIT, this seems to happen every time I drop a show. I just couldn't deal with it for the first couple of episodes so I deleted it and now all I hear is how good it has gotten. Dammit dammit dammit.
