(even though some of my faves r cancelled or has ended, there are a few more that im lookin’ forward to, hoping they’ll live up to the expectations, lol..)
here’s the lineup of the Fall season…
(雖然有些我喜歡的已經被取消或演完了, 但是也有些新的是我期待的, 希望這些新影集可以跟我希望的一樣好囉, 哈…)
– CBS: Hawaii Five-O (9/20, 10pm-11pm): Lost裡的Jin (Daniel Dae Kim)的最新影集. This action-packed remake of the hit procedural stars Alex O’Loughlin as Steve McGarrett, a top Naval intelligence officer who heads back to the Aloha State to investigate his father’s murder. The governor (Jean Smart) enlists him to form an elite task force that has complete immunity and authority to expunge the scum by any means possible. On his team, McGarrett recruits Danny “Dano” Williams (Scott Caan), a displaced detective from New Jersey, Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim), who left the force under suspicion of wrongdoing, and Kona Kalakaua (Grace Park), a young but tough rookie who’s also Chin Ho’s cousin.
– NBC: The Event (9/20, 9pm- 10pm): A presidential assassination attempt, a missing person and a CIA cover-up are among the events that aren’t the event of this mystery thriller’s title. ‘The Event’ is a hard one to pin down. The story flashes back and forth in whatever increments it needs in order to explain what’s going on in the present. What we know is that in the span of eleven days, Sean Walker (Jason Ritter) has gone from a happy guy who’s about to ask his girlfriend Leila (Sarah Roemer) to marry him to a desperate man who pulls a gun as a plane is taking off from Miami. In the meantime, the new president (Blair Underwood) is finding out about an Alaskan prison run by the CIA, whose mysterious prisoners are led by the equally mysterious Sophia (Laura Innes). By the end of the episode, an event happens which might very well affect the fate of mankind.
Chase (9/20, 10pm- 11pm): Kelli Giddish stars as a tough-talkin’ U.S. marshal in this adrenalized action series from Jerry Bruckheimer. The job of a U.S. Marshal is to chase down fugitives. And Houston-based Marshal Annie Frost (Kelli Giddish), is as good as anyone at doing that. She’s a Texas native with a checkered background; both aspects of her life allow her to get in the heads of the convicts that try to run through the Lone Star state. Aided by a crack team of Marshals with their own special skills, Frost is determined to keep violent criminals from either doing more harm or running for the border.
– CW: Gossip Girl (9/13, 9pm-10pm)
– FOX: House (9/20, 8pm- 9pm)
– ABC: No Ordinary Family (9/28, 8pm- 9pm): The Powells are a family that are flying apart. Jim (Michael Chiklis) is a police sketch artist that feels like a failure and also feels like he can’t communicate with his super-busy scientist wife Stephanie (Julie Benz). Their kids, Daphne (Kay Panabaker) and JJ (Jimmy Bennett), are embroiled in their own teenage problems and dramas. Then, on a bonding trip to Brazil, the family is involved in a plane crash that dunks them in a phosphorescent lake. When they get back, they slowly start realizing they have super abilities: Jim can jump great distances and stop bullets, Stephanie has super speed, Daphne can read other people’s thoughts, and JJ has super-intelligence. How will they deal with these powers — while still keeping their family together?
Detroit 1-8-7 (9/21, 10pm-11pm): Michael Imperioli stars as a respected but misunderstood homicide detective. In the style ofSouthland, the show follows the cops as they police the streets of Detroit, the city with the country’s highest murder rate. Jon Michael Hill, James McDaniel, Aisha Hinds and Natalie Martinez also star. It’s the story of tough homicide detectives on the super-tough Detroit streets. Among the detectives is Louis Finch (Michael Imperioli), the best on the force, even though he has a tendency to get too emotionally involved in his cases; Sergeant Jesse Longford (James McDaniel), who’s as experienced as they come but is facing retirement; and Ariana Sanchez (Natalie Martinez), a young detective from a checkered upbringing who’s making her mark in the department. It’s a large ensemble cast in a show where — despite the cliched notion of it — the city of Detroit is a character all by itself.
– CBS: NCIS Los Angeles (9/21, 9pm-10pm)
– CBS: The Defenders (9/22, 10pm-11pm): Nick Morelli (Jim Belushi) and Pete Kaczmarek (Jerry O’Connell) are attorneys in Las Vegas who are not only brash — they just unveiled a huge billboard near the Strip — but are inclined to take chances with their clients. If they need to skirt contempt in order to get a judge to inadvertently help them out, they will. If it takes sleeping with the prosecutor to get a kid’s charges dismissed, they will (at least Nick will). As they get more notoriety, their client list becomes more eclectic. At the same time, Nick is separated from his wife, Pete is living at the Planet Hollywood hotel and bedding flight attendants, and they’re both trying to break in a new associate (Jurnee Smollett) who has to constantly fight against her reputation as a former stripper. This is a legal dramedy.
– NBC: Undercovers (9/22, 8pm- 9pm): Think Mr. & Mrs. Smith, the TV show. Married former spies (Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw) get back in the family business together in the J.J. Abrams-produced action series. Steven and Samantha Bloom (Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw) run a catering company in Los Angeles. But at one time, they were a pair of crack agents for the CIA. They fell in love on the job, but never worked together or discussed each other’s missions; they left the spy life in order to enjoy their lives together. But they are called back to duty by CIA liaison Carlton Shaw (Gerald McRaney) to find their old agency friend Leo Nash (Carter MacIntyre), who might have gone rogue. The Blooms criss-cross the globe, joined by staff agent/ Steven Bloom fanatic Bill Hoyt (Ben Schwartz), in search of Nash, and in the process they find that they’re attracted to each other all over again.
Law & Order Los Angeles (9/29, 10pm- 11pm): By now, we all know the premise. Nevertheless, NBC promises that this won’t be your grandfather’s Law & Order, as it’ll feature a comely, youthful cast squeezed between that signature sound effect. First up: Skeet Ulrich has signed on in one of the detective roles.
– ABC: Cougar Town (9/22, 9:30pm- 10pm)
– CW: Nikita (9/9, 9pm- 10pm): Nikita (“Maggie Q” from Mission: Impossible 3) plays the titular assassin, who used to be a top assassin for a secret government agency called the Division and now wants to bring down the secret government program that turns at-risk youth into killers. After breaking away from their control, she’s come out of hiding in order to defeat them. The Division, led by agent recruiter/ trainer/ mentor Michael (Shane West) is leading the chase to take her out, but she’s using all the knowledge that she’s gained in her years in the Division — including her personal knowledge of Michael — to get the upper hand. In the meantime, Michael has found a new deadly recruit in Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca — the daughter of Old Ted in ‘How I Met Your Mother’ … all grown up!), whom he hopes will be the next Nikita.

– CW: The Vampire Diaries (9/9, 8pm- 9pm)
– FOX: Fringe (9/23, 9pm- 10pm)
– ABC: Body of Proof (TBD, 9pm-10pm): While we’re going to miss Delany as Bree’s clone-turned-colleague Katherine on Desperate Housewives, and learn to do without Ryan as Leverage‘s ball-busting con artist Tara, they’ll both be back as crime-solving medical examiners in ABC’s Body of Proof.
Dr. Megan Hunt (Desperate Housewives‘ Dana Delany) plays a feisty neurosurgeon whose career ends after a car accident. She takes a job as a medical examiner in Philadelphia, where she helps cops solve murders by “reading the body.” Tough and driven, she’s always put her career first, which is why she is divorced and not a big part of her daughter’s life. But in her new role, she’s determined to let the body she’s examining tell the entire story of how that person died, much to the annoyance of the cops she works with. She’s constantly being told where her boundaries are by her partner, investigator Peter Dunlop (Nicholas Bishop), a former cop. Her boss, De. Kate Murphy (Jeri Ryan) tries to keep Hunt in line while admiring her new hire’s determination and the fact that she gets results.
– CBS: Blue Bloods (9/24, 10pm- 11pm): Crime-fighting meets family squabbling in this procedural about the Reagans, a multigenerational clan of New York cops. Frank (Tom Selleck), is the chief of police, just like his dad was. Frank’s eldest son, Danny (Donnie Wahlberg), is a gruff detective and Iraq War vet; his youngest son, Jamie (Will Estes) is a rookie cop fresh out of the academy. Bridget Moynahan rounds out the testosterone-heavy cast as Frank’s daughter, Erin, an assistant district attorney and single mom. The Reagans are a family of New York City cops. Patriarch Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) is the city’s chief of police, who tries to keep the department on the straight and narrow, but he’s running into the same political landmines that sunk his father Henry (Len Cariou) when he was chief.
– NBC: Outlaw (10pm- 11pm, Premiere 9/15 Wed): Supreme Court Justice Cyrus Garza (Jimmy Smits) suddenly resigns when he realizes the system is flawed. The playboy and gambler returns to private practice to help the little guys take on the system. Cyrus Garza (Jimmy Smits) isn’t your typical Supreme Court justice; he gambles, womanizes, and has a more public persona than any justice has ever had. He’s also very conservative, a position that’s been wavering ever since the death of his activist father. While ruling on a death penalty case, Garza abruptly quits the court and starts fighting for the cases just like the one he ruled on… in fact, that convict’s plight is his first case.
– FOX: Human Target (9/24, 8pm-9pm)
– ABC: Desperate Housewives (9/26, 9pm-10pm): Vanessa William’s new role as Renee Perry, the newest housewife to shake up Desperate Housewives‘ Wisteria Lane could run a very close second.
