Summer is ending, which is sad. But new TV is back, which is wonderful.
So quit sulking, turn on your TV (or computer, if you're not 100), forget about your own life, and start thinking about sexy, sexy doctors. Here are the best new fall shows for you to live vicariously through.
1. Limitless, Tuesday 9/22 on CBS
The main character in this show has super cognitive abilities. He solves FBI cases like it's no big deal. And most importantly, he knows Bradley Cooper. Sure, there are a lot of dark and dangerous downsides to using brain-enhancing drug NZT, as we learned from the Limitless movie when all those people violently [spoiler]ed. But who cares? He knows Bradley Cooper.
2. Flesh and Bone, Sunday 11/8 on Starz
If you want to imagine that you're a talented ballerina at the American Ballet Academy, you'll need to commit to the details, like a sociopathic mentor and bleeding feet. This show, from Breaking Bad writer Moira Walley-Beckett, really paints a picture. Hopefully they'll do Swan Lake in season one and everyone will glamorously freak out and/or embrace their dark side.
3. Grandfathered, Tuesday 9/29 on Fox
To be clear, the character in this show with the best life to steal is the baby, because then John Stamos would be your grandpa and your family would be the coolest. This is a show about a guy finding out he has a kid he never knew about, who grew up and had a grandkid he never knew about. From the trailer, it also looks like there are restaurant shenanigans, dope apartments, and cute children.
4. Minority Report, Monday 9/21 on Fox
The best part of the Minority Report movie was the huge futuristic touchscreen that would do whatever you wanted if you waved your hands around. Thankfully, the screen is back for the TV adaptation. If I were a character on this show I would just be playing around on the touchscreen for 40 minutes having the time of my life, and there wouldn't be a plot, but it would be fine. The actual show, which takes place 10 years after the film, focuses on a guy who can see the future and tries to stop crimes before they happen.
5. Supergirl, Monday 10/26 on CBS
Finally, a female superhero. A young, female superhero. A young, female, empowered superhero. A young, female, empowered superhero who sasses misogynist male aliens. Kara Zor-El, aka Superman's cousin, is my new role model. (And like all my other role models, she is younger than me.)
6. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Monday 10/19 on the CW
The world could use more choreographed dance numbers, especially spontaneous ones with synchronized clapping. It seems like that happens all the time for the main character of this show from YouTube star Rachel Bloom.
7. Best Time Ever, Tuesday 9/15
We all want to steal Neil Patrick Harris' life and we always have. He has an awesome family. He's inspirational AF. And now, on top of all that, he's having the best time ever? This show looks to be some kind of mish-mosh of late night comedy, pranking, singing, and famous people. Maybe we can at least Freaky Friday this situation for one perfect day.
