Looks pretty good, but seems like the cable tv stations for the most part will continue already running shows. My guess is that maybe 1-2 of these will get renewed more than one season MAX. 

I think Vegas will have a good shot, and Arrow. The rest seems like very expensive productions and reuse of known formulas like Lost and American Horror Stories.

But should be interesting, of course there will also be Copper, BBC USA, which will start next week.

I really want Revolution to be the next big post apocalypic drama series, but i am afraid it might be more like Terra Nova.

Shockingly, some of those don't sound half bad.   I could use a few new things to watch, as going outside scares me. 

I watched an episode of the new Matt LeBlanc series ("Episodes," is that right?) on my plane-ride to Sweden.  I thought it was pretty damn good.  No idea what network it's on, but it's probably a safe bet that I don't get it.  Also saw an episode of Modern Family on the plane - the one where Cam tries to pick up a woman to prove that he can - which was simply brilliant.  Great show.

Saw the commercial yesterday for Last Resort. I think Andre Braugher is good so I'll check it out or that reason. Liked him in Men of a Certain Age...a show no one saw & somehow lasted 3 seasons. (2 or 3, I think 3 seasons.)

I love a good story about the apocalypse...I'll tune into Revolution.

Men of a Certain age, that was the Ray Romano show right? I actually liked it quite a bit.

Yeah, Mikael, Ray Romano was either the producer or creator of the show...

Just noticed your blurb on Copper. I'll try that out but some shows on BBC don't have the close captioned subtitles. I can't make out the words if the accents are too thick. There's an English show about superheroes, I wanted to see it but couldn't understand a damn word...

Oh, I see Copper takes place in New York in 1864. For some reason, I thought it took place in London.

Vegas will either be great or abysmal all depends on the writing. The acting talent is definitely there.with Dennis Quaid, and Michael Chiklis.

Well they did say it is from the same writer of Casino, and Goodfellas. Not a bad thing.

I want to watch Revolution, but I've sworn not to allow NBC to suck me into another drama (i.e. The Event, The Firm).  I friggin hate when I get into these and they cut it off midstream.

Also in the mold of Falling Skies.  Is anyone watching that?  I friggin love Falling Skies.  It started a little slow, but keeps getting better and better.  Love where it's headed.

Yes i watch falling skies.  I think it is okay, but not up to the standards of The Walking Dead.

I also think the Last Resort, looks pretty good.

I also watch Falling Skies.

Saw Copper yesterday...very cool. The BBC commercials reminded me about a show I wanted to see but completely forgot about...Luthor. A Show about a detective who is...I dunno...bat garbage insane while solving crime? BBC is rerunning the series so I gotta remember to watch it in reruns.

depeche...great point about NBC. They should stop putting sci-fi dramas on the air if they keep pulling the plug after one season. It's becoming predictable with them...
