Fall TV

Tis the season for new shows that I either love or hate and for new episodes of shows that I already love.
Arrow:
What is there to say about this show, except  that it's awesome for so many reasons. I like that it is a superhero show but the Arrow is still human and can get hurt (and does frequently, which means Stephen Amell spends a great deal of this show shirtless). Sounds like a "win win" situation! Plus, there are no stupid damsels in distress; all the girls are either smart or can pack a punch in this show.
One of the things that I really like is the fact that Stephen Amell is so involved with his fans and really gets excited about every episode and he shares that. Of course, there is Felicity who makes it all even more enjoyable because she is so inappropriate.

Chicago Fire:
I have to admit that I am a whole season behind on this show because, as much as I love this show, it really gets me emotional every time I watch it. For a while there, I couldn't really handle anymore feelings along with the ones I already had this past year. I am going to catch up though, because this is just a wonderful show with a great cast and really good stories.
And you can't ignore the serious eye candy.

Forever:
This one just started. I have only watched 3 episodes but I can tell you I really hope it gets a full season.  I think the idea is cool and it is hilarious to watch the main character die in the weirdest ways and wake up butt-ass-naked in public afterwards. 
I recommend checking it out if you are into supernatural/crime drama.
Haven:
This show is on it's fifth and last season right now. I think it's time to bring it to an end, even though up until this point I have really enjoyed this story.  It is based on a Stephen King book, so if you like sci-fi, weird, supernatural and funny, this is the show for you. 
The Originals:
If you got sick and annoyed watching Elena dyingand coming back for the umpteenth time on Vampire Diaries then this is the show for you. It's like Vampire Diaries for grown ups. The first season almost gave me a case of the vapors with something absolutely ridiculous happening every single episode. If you like vamps, werewolfs and witches this is a fun show to get into.
Madame Secretary:
This show just started and till now, I can say I really like it.  I think Tea Leoni does a great job in this role. I hope this gets a full season because I want to see her weed out the douchebags who work with her.

Modern Family:
This is a no brainer; every single episode is hilarious and it's something we can watch together. 

Reign:
Oh, hello beautiful costumes and beautiful people. This show has it all. Of course, it is nowhere near accurate as far as the real Mary Queen of Scots goes but this is so much more entertaining. It has STDs, the plague, illegitimate children, whores and all types of people keeling over dead from poison -- I love it!   If it wasn't for the non-existent indoor plumbing, I would probably have wanted to live there. 
Scorpion:
So, this just started and it is based on a real person; so far I think it's entertaining. I don't know about it getting a full season because sometimes it's so unbelievable while trying to be believable.
I like the characters and the stories but every time I see federal agent Cabe Gallo I see the terminator, and he scared the shit out of me.

Of course, other than these shows I also watch The Big Bang Theory, Downton Abbey, Teen Wolf, Supernatural, New Girl, The Mindy Project and a bunch more, but these are shows that I binge watch. I let a bunch of episodes build up and then watch several back-to-back while doing something else. It usually just depends on what is going on and what the weather is like. I like to watch tv when I have a lot going on during the day and I don't want to talk at night so we turn on a show and just get involved in someone else's life.
