Fall Premiers Fail to Impress
Fall is just around the corner and with it comes the usual line-up of new TV shows.
However, this year, despite numerous amounts of premieres, only one show really looks like it’s worth any attention.
There is a new comedy from the CW network about a new doctor at a tough Denver hospital. The show is called Emily Owens M.D. and has drawn comparisons to Ally McBeal.
The show features similar insecurities, monologues and charm as found in the law comic-drama.
Dr Emily Owens is played by Mamie Gummer who is known for her role as Nancy the young attorney in The Good Wife.
Despite being the daughter of Meryl Streep, her acting is so enjoyable it deserves to be judged on its own merits.
The show doesn’t begin until October 16th but until then there are some other things to have a look at.
NBC’s new Matthew Perry series has already started; it appears to have a solid cast and a good basis.
Next week the show 666 Park Avenue premiers on ABC, it’s quite fun and features Terry O’Quinn playing a role similar to Al Pacino’s in The Devil’s Advocate.
Overall things don’t look too great this year, but you never know, there may be a surprise on the way.
