The Fall TV Season is right around the corner - and, if you are like me, you may need a quick refresher on the various finales and cliffhangers from your favorite returning shows.
Some shows have been re-running their finales recently, and some are available in various streaming forms, but here is a quick recap of some of the returning shows we follow here at GG Inc.
Today, Sunday through Tuesday Shows...
When we last left Storybrook, it was 'happy endings' all round - at least for a minute. The Wicked Witch was defeated, the Charming's baby was born safely, Rumple and Belle got married, Emma and Hook finally got to smooching, and Regina and Robin Hood's flirting turned into a full-on romance. Then Maid Marion turned out to be the girl Emma saved from the past - oops, sorry Regina, no happy ending for you. (BTW - I love Regina and was totally miffed by this turn of events!) Also, in case you haven't missed the ridiculous amount of clips, stories and ads this summer, Elsa and Co. are bringing a Frozen theme to the upcoming season. I'm not sure how I feel about milking that cash cow so blatantly, but as long as they give me enough Hook for my trouble, I'm still in.
This has been a staple of my Sundays for many a year even though the line-up is changing, I'm still all in. My favorite, Bob's Burgers, is now at 7:30, followed byThe Simpsons at 8. The sophomore sitcom hit Brooklyn 99 at 8:30, Family Guy at 9pm, and new sitcom Mulaney at 9:30pm rounds out this night of comedy. This season will bring us Family Guy/Simpsons and a Futurama/Simpsons cross-over episodes - and any Bob's Burgers is great Bob's Burgers. More Tina! More Louise!
The first three seasons are currently available for streaming on Netflix. Season 4 will be available for your binge-watching pleasure starting Sunday, Sept. 28 - leaving approximately two weeks for new and old fans to watch all 16 episodes before the premiere on October 12th.
The show will still be followed by Chris Hardwick's The Talking Dead aftershow at 10pm.
First off, let me tell you that they are re-running the 2-hour season finale this Thursday night (9/18) if you really need to catch up - I know I do! This show is bat-shit nuts in the best way possible. Hulu Plus is your only option to watch all of season one if you are late to the game on this one. I recommend watching it live and cuddling up to your smartphone and follow Orlando Jones as he live tweets the episodes. He is hilarious.
Though not technically a genre show, it has Captain Tightpants, and that is good enough for me. The finale brought us the day we'd all been waiting for - Beckett and Castle's wedding. Of, course on the way to the wedding, Castle is driven off the road by a mysterious vehicle and disappears. The final image of Kate in her wedding dress watching his car burn (she thinks with him inside) would hold more angst if we didn't all know he isn't dead - the show is called Castle after all...
After the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, this show went from hit-and-miss to must-see TV in a hot second. Hopefully you all stuck with it like I did and made it to the epic season finale, with a major guest spot by the man himself, Nick Fury! There are too many plot threads to detail, but here are a few highlights: May kicking Ward's HYDRA ass. Did I mention May kicking Ward's ass? Yeah. It was worth mentioning twice.
Ah, Supernatural. The cult classic of modern American TV cult classics. Welcome to season 10, boys. The finale episodes brought us the end of (the fabulous) Abbadon, (the annoying) Metatron, and the beginning of life as a demon for Dean.
