Nuns! Bikes! 1950s London! What More Could You Want in a Show?

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | September 30, 2012 | Comments ()


"Call the Midwife" on PBS at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. Well, US series premiere. This series has been around in the UK for about a year. It's a period drama set in East London in the 1950s that follows the work of midwives in the Nonnatus House, a nursing convent.

"Dexter" on Showtime at 9:00pm Et. Seventh season premiere. From what I hear, the television series hasn't gone off the deep end with the bizarre "Dexter's lost his killing mojo" storyline the third book featured so they've got some good ideas.

"Revenge" on ABC at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere. More shenanigans in the Hamptons!

"666 Park Avenue" on ABC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This looks, I don't know. Like it should be a made for TV movie or a miniseries rather than a full season length show. Also sort of like a slightly more network appropriate rip off of "American Horror Story" but maybe they'll do their own thing. We'll see.

"Homeland" on Showtime at 10:00pm ET. Second season premiere.

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