It's that time of year again!

We've done this before (here, here, here, here, and here), but now it's time for this year! This is a place for comments about any and all shows, but especially for shows that don't generate their own threads.

I'm remiss in starting this thread so late this time around, as we're about a month into the new season. We've already seen the return of The Flash (see "Flash Season 3 -- SPOILERS"), Gotham (see "GOTHAM SEASON 3 !!SPOILERS!!"), and the welcome debut of Luke Cage (see "Luke Cage Season 1 (Spoilers)" ). We're also looking forward to the return of Supergirl at its new home on the CW (see SUPERGIRL SEASON 2 !!SPOILERS!!)

For my part, I was glad to have Suits over the summer to tide me over until Chicago Fire, Empire, and Grey's Anatomy came back.

I'm still following The Big Bang Theory, which started off pretty well -- Leonard and Penny had a renewal of the vows ceremony so their families could attend, which meant we met Leonard's dad and Penny's mother, father and brother. Apparently, they forgot that Leonard also has a brother and sister, who went completely unmentioned in the episode.

I've become a belated convert to New Girl and to Superstore, which is a lot like The Office, but in a more downscale setting -- a big-box store much like Wal-Mart or Kmart or Target. The manager and assistant manager are direct clones of those characters from The Office, but I don't mind.

I gave a try to The Good Place, but it didn't bowl me over.

I'm caught up. This is Us is my new favorite show.

[SPOILER] Every episode so far, as good as each is on its own merits, has had a little twist at the end which draws me back. That's the "spoiler" I didn't want to reveal last week. I'm not telling you what the twist is, but sometimes just kowing there is a twist is a spoiler.

Although this is technically not part of the fall season (both of these shows debuted in the summer), CBS canceled BrainDead and American Gothic"CBS Sends BrainDead and American Gothic to an Early Grave, Cancels Both After First Season"

Sorry to hear BrainDead is cancelled; it's a fun show. (Then again, we've still got several episodes yet to see, so it's not like we were doing the ratings any good.)

BrainDead was a fun show. I got the impression it wasn't going to be back. I'll miss looking at Mary Elizabeth Winstead every week and I've always enjoyed Tony Shalhoub in everything he's ever done.

TV Line already starts handicapping prospects of renewal or cancellation. To be updated as the season goes on: "2017 Renewal Scorecard: What's Coming Back? What's Getting Cancell...

TBS has made Episode 1 of People of Earth available for preview on YouTube, and I have to say it tickled my funnybone.  No huge laughs, but lots of moments that made me chuckle.  The more bickering aliens, the better.

It's debuting (two episodes) on Oct 31. I'll give it a look.

Regarding BrainDead: How can you cancel a show that already had an ending? I don't see how it could have gone on anyway.

I think people are mistaking "not renewed" for "canceled."

If Speechless lasts more than 13 episodes, it will probably outrun its premise.

So far we've watched the first two episodes and we love it!

We liked it a lot, too!

Rounding the corner into the post-holiday season, I am (to my surprise) enjoying Emerald City. A "re-imagining" of Oz struck me as a truly horrible and misguided idea, and I tuned into the pilot just to watch the train wreck.  But ... it wasn't. 

It wasn't and isn't a perfect show, but I'm being drawn into the story and want to know more about how this fantasy world works.  It's not "my" Oz -- Oh Hell No! -- but it manages to be very, very different without feeling disrespectful of the source material.  (And it's full of Easter eggs for fans who know more about Oz than the Judy Garland movie, which shows that the creators know that source material, even if they're taking liberties with it.)  That's a worthwhile kind of re-imagining.
