Fall is a huge season for all the shows we love to start their new seasons. Based on popularity, I wanted to give a little insight on each show and my opinion on how they compare to last season or if it is new, how it starts. Almost every day from Tuesday the twentieth to Sunday the twenty-fifth multiple shows aired, these are just a few.
● This is Us: A show that has been building up for weeks, This is Us did not disappoint. Starting off a little confusing with lots of storylines to follow, it seems to come together at the end of episode one in an emotional twist.
Wednesday the twenty-first was a big day for new seasons of popular shows to be starting up, the six who seem to be the most popular are: Designated Survivor (season one), Speechless (season one), Black-ish (season three), The Goldbergs (season four), Modern Family (season eight), and Law and Order: SVU (season eighteen).
● Designated Survivor: Starting its first season with a lot of hype around it, Designated Survivor seemed to hold up its end of the deal. Tom Kirkland the new president, played by Kiefer Sutherland, has more drama thrown at him everytime he walks around of corner of his new home. Wondering how he is going to control the entire country, Kirkland seems to stay calm, but as more problems keep arising who knows what is going to happen to our beautiful country?
● Speechless: Starring Minnie Driver, Speechless is one hilarious show. Trying to get rid of multiple equality gaps, the DiMeo family knows all the tricks to keep their special needs son/brother to get the best care he can and live a normal life. The family keeps trying to solve one problem at a time while simultaneously creating more problems for themselves.
● Black-ish: Season three of Black-ish has come back funnier than ever. The entire Johnson family takes a trip to Disney world --with a new baby on the way-- and Dre indulges his kids with the “VIP” passes. For seven hours everyone can cut to the front of the lines and get around the park faster than anyone, but what happens after that seven hours is up? Chaos.
● The Goldbergs: With the twist on the classic movie The Breakfast Club, The Goldbergs seem to keep getting better and better. Beverly finds another way to invade her kid’s life, without “failing as a mother” while her kids are just trying to make it through the first week of school without making a fool of themselves. While spending a Saturday in detention, they bond over the fact that they are all nerds in their own way, and they are willing to accept it.
● Modern Family: It’s Father’s Day to start season eight of Modern Family; the kids are older and rebellious, and they couldn't be more relatable. Claire (Julie Bowen) and Phil (Ty Burrell) take a little “road trip” while their kids decide to have a little fun themselves, and they learn the truth about lies. Gloria’s (Sofia Vergara) sister is in town, and Cameron’s (Eric Stonestreet) grandma is dying, and as we all know, along with family comes drama.
● Law and Order: SVU: Beginning season eighteen, Law and Order: SVU continues to keep everyone in awe. Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay), after having a gun pulled on her by a child, discovers a couple suspected to be terrorists. After finding out more about this couple, Benson begins to realize the woman is a victim of rape and acts against her will, which leads to being her advocate.
On Thursday the twenty-second, three popular shows aired: Notorious (season one), How to Get Away With Murder (season three), and Grey’s Anatomy (season thirteen).
● Notorious: Starring Piper Perabo and Daniel Sunjata as Julia George and Jake Gregorian, Notorious will be one popular show. Full of cliffhangers and plot twists, it can keep any audience watching through the entire hour. It also gives us a question to think about: is this what really happens? Are we all being lied to every time we watch the news?
● How to Get Away With Murder: This season starts by continuing the ending of season two's storyline, and someone is plotting a smear campaign against Keating (Viola Davis). After being flash forwarded two months into the future, like in previous seasons, you're hooked and guaranteed to stay along for the ride.
● Grey’s Anatomy: Emotional and dramatic, Grey’s Anatomy always leaves everyone in disbelief. That is exactly what happened in season thirteen’s first episode; Karev (Justin Chambers) starts major drama because of a girl and could possibly ruin his life and someone else’s because of it. With lots of secrets, this season is already full of cliffhangers and is sure to hold plenty of suspense.
● Quantico: This season Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra) is going undercover as a CIA trainee with her “good friend” Ryan Booth (Jake McLaughlin). Episode one may be a little gruesome for some viewers while they start their mission to find out if the CIA is creating their own anarchy.
After getting a taste of all of the popular shows that have aired in the past week, hopefully new doors have been opened and those shows may have more viewers!
