Bogner’s TV Guide No. 16

After month of sweating, getting sunburnt the minute I stepped out of my darkened room, and making shorts part my daily clothing routine, I cannot wait for the downfall of the yellow monster and for nature to wilt and die once more. But apart from the relief that comes with shortening days, there is another great joy: fall comebacks! Here are the ones that have me counting down the days to their triumphant return on air.


Homeland

 Without doubt Howard ‘24′ Gordon’s show about CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) and her wild theory that a decorated war hero (Damian Lewis) has been turned and is now an Al-Qaeda sleeper agent, was last years best. Homeland Season 1 had it all: a weird jazz theme that perfectly illustrated Carrie’s mental health issues, thrills that sometimes brought you to the edge of your seat, and a setting that was as up-to-date as the new Batman wished to be. The Golden Globe for Best Drama Series in 2012 was more than deserved, and if season 2 is only half as great as the first one, Homeland will without a doubt win it again in 2013. And the chances are good… just take a look at the trailer.

Season 2 premieres on Sunday, September 30 on Showtime.


The Walking Dead

When I first heard about Frank Darabont turning The Walking Dead comic into a TV show, I came directly into my nerd pants (worn up to my waist, naturally). And while Season 1 turned out to be really great, Season 2 was, to put it simply, so-so. I don’t really know what to expect from the zombie apocalypse survivors around Rick after Herschel’s farm was ran over, but I’m sure as hell going to watch every season they make (until the dead come alive in the real world, that is).

Season 3 premieres on Sunday, October 14 on AMC.

Revenge

A few weeks ago I told you about my favorite guilty pleasure, Revenge. After more than twenty episodes I swore to myself that I wouldn’t waste a minute more watching this show, but now I find myself waking up in the middle of the night wondering who Emily’s mother might be (ok, I already spoiler’d that for myself, it’s Jennifer Jason Leigh) and if she will ever ride with her puppy love Jack through the Hamptons. Cheesy as fuck, I know, but sooo addicting… nd a lot better than Gossip Girl, which will be going into its last, ten-episode season.

Season 4 premieres on Sunday, September 30 on ABC.

Modern Family

Al Bundy is one of the greatest characters in TV history, and I still don’t get why it wasn’t him instead of Chuck Norris who became the internet’s number one hero (this is a good point, actually – Ed.). After all, Married with Children had everything you could ask for in a meme. So as you may have guessed Ed O’Neil is the number one reason for me to watch Modern Family, which shouldn’t discredit the rest of the cast who make this show extremely funny and make me really look forward to the upcoming fourth season, which brings a new baby to the show.

Season 4 premieres on Wednesday, September 26 on ABC.

(by the way, I know this trailer sucks, but you get the idea, right?)

 

Wait for next week to find out about exciting new shows to come up this Autumn.
