In less than two weeks, it will officially be fall, and with that comes a fresh crop of television series. With summer bringing us such gems as The Glass House and The Choice, there has never been a more crucial need for those tried and true fall programs.

Between all of those reruns of last year’s breakout comedies and the never-ending saga that is The Secret Life of the American Teenager, is it too much to ask for something new? You know, some original show with an interesting plot and enough good acting to spare. Luckily for me (and we the general population), with fall comes the promise of something worth watching.

With all of the dreary Syracuse weather to come, let’s hope that all of the television networks are feeling generous and there are enough entertaining series to give us something to look forward to when we’re running back to our rooms.

Top Picks for fall:

American Horror Story: Asylum (FX/ Wednesday, October 17th at 10pm)

Say what you will about Ryan Murphy and the slow decline of Glee, but no one can deny how great American Horror Story was. This season, the series takes place in a mental institution run by a sadistic nun. Pretty sure this won’t be your grandparents’ horror story about nuns using rulers in Catholic school.

Revolution (NBC/ Monday, September 17th at 10pm)

With all the talk of the world ending in December, the perfect show for fall has to be the one that deals with how humans survive after the world loses all technology. Sure, it might not be the most cheery series on television, but at least we can learn some fun facts about what to expect in the off chance that those initial interpretations of the Mayan calendars were right.

New Girl  (Fox/Tuesday, September 25th at 8pm)

While she’s not technically the “new girl” anymore, Zooey Deschanel’s breakout hit will be back for another season. I can’t deny that I dream of having a spacious loft apartment with three male roommates turned best friends, but alas, I know that that life only exists on a studio lot. Nevertheless, I can’t wait for Tuesdays, so I can live vicariously through the quirkiest teacher to ever exist.

Do, re, me, Glee!

Do, re, me, Glee!

Man hug between the two hottest actors on Glee? CHECK!
The president of the Celibacy Club getting preggers? CHECK!
Teaching a football team Beyoncé’s Single Ladies dance? CHECK!

FOX’s scorching hot new show, Glee, aired its’ fourth episode this past week, and what an episode it was. If the title “Preggers,” didn’t make you crack a smile, the opening scene with Kurt (Chris Colfer) dancing in a leotard to Beyoncés Single Ladies must have done the trick. The whole episode was set to the theme of Beyoncé’s music, but no, Kanye West did not interrupt once with, “Yo Kurt, I’mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best dance moves of all time!”

Along with a catchy selection of music, which included tunes from West Side Story, Celine Dion, and of course Beyoncé, there were so many interwoven storylines packed into 43 minutes of airtime. Fake pregnancies, real pregnancies, “auditions” to be William McKinley High’s new kicker, club competitiveness, football players patting their own butts to the music, Internet blackmail that did not involve sex tapes, a football team’s dramatic first win, and even coming to terms with one’s sexual orientation evoked laughs, gasps, and sighs of relief this past week. The writers introduced and pulled all the stories off beautifully, but I personally loved the baby mama drama. (more…)
