Nerd Fight: Most Anticipated New Fall Shows
Hello to all you Geek Enthusiasts and Nerd Aficionados!
We are back with another poll for this week. Last week saw the fight for the best Bill Murray Movie. Ghostbusters just barely squeaked by Groundhog Day to pull off the victory. Apparently Groundhog Day got stuck in the remnants of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man at the finish to fall out of first. But it was a fun debate, and really capped off celebrating the great Icon that is Bill Murray. So thanks to everyone who came out and participated, you made the week a lot of fun! We are doing this week’s Nerd Fight to celebrate the arrival of the new fall TV shows. If you watched our podcast last night you know that we had some wonderful discussions about some of the shows that have recently debuted. So check that out, and check out this weeks contestants!
Star Trek: Discovery
This begins roughly a decade before Captain Kirk’s five-year mission, and a century before the events of Star Trek: Enterprise. The series follows the crew of the USS Discovery as they encounter new worlds and civilizations, delving into familiar themes and expanding upon an incident that has been talked about within the franchise’s universe, but never fully explored. It is off to a great start, full of great writing and an awesome cast. I am excited to see if this will last the whole season.
This show has a lot riding on it. A spin off from the wildly popular Big Bang Theory, this has some big shoes to fill. The actor though is solid, and has already established a lot of heart. I see some good things coming from this show if the writing stays strong.
Me Myself and I:
This is a crazy unique show. It follows the life of Alex Riley and his mom at 14, as they relocate after getting remarried. But it’s his life at 3 different points in time. In present day, 40-year-old Alex’s life has hit both a personal and professional standstill. In 2042, at 65, Alex has a realization that to be truly happy, he has to step away from his successful company and get back to his passion… inventing. Me, Myself & I follows him through each of these pivotal periods, revealing where the past informs the future, and the moments where he learns that his story isn’t defined by what happens to him, but by how he decides to deal with it. Give it a shot, we think you will love it.
The One I am most looking forward to coming to television. Marvel brings us a new family adventure series about an ordinary suburban family. Whose lives change course forever when they discover their children have developed mutant powers. When the threat of hostile government forces the family go on the run to protect themselves, then they join the ranks of an underground network of mutants. Together, the group fight to survive in a world where fear and misunderstanding put them at constant risk. It’s got a solid cast heading it, and hearkens back to the days of season 1 of Heroes. Please God let it be as good as that season was.
The Good Doctor:
