I've been watching Mr. Robot (USA) and Humans (AMC). Both are pretty good (although Mr. Robot is edgier).

MONDAYS

The Civil War

TUESDAYS

Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris
NBC, 10 p.m. (Sept. 15)

The Bastard Executioner
FX, 10 p.m. (Sept. 15)
From Kurt Sutter, the creator of Sons of Anarchy, comes this story of a warrior (Lee Jones) who swears off killing only to pick up a sword again when he’s forced to become an executioner. Sutter’s muse Katey Sagal co-stars as Annora of the Elders. To no one’s surprise, the show is reputed to be astoundingly violent. —M.Z.S.

The Grinder
Fox, 8:30 p.m. (Sept. 29)
Rob Lowe, who’s also in NBC’s You, Me & the End of the World, plays a preening actor who, after his Law & Order–esque show goes off the air, has to join the family law practice with his younger brother, played by fellow familiar face Fred Savage.

The Muppets
ABC, 8 p.m. (Sept. 22; It’s shaping up to be a strong Tuesday this fall.)
The late Jim Henson’s beloved troupe of felt actors has undergone an excellent revival in recent years; the process continues on this mock­umentary that gives the characters the reality-show treatment. —M.Z.S.

Scream Queens
Fox, 8 p.m. (Sept. 22)
Ryan Murphy’s latest, set at a mean-girl sorority besieged by a serial killer; the all-star cast features original scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis, Abigail Breslin, pop starlet Ariana Grande, and Murphy veterans Emma Roberts and Lea Michele, the latter in some serious headgear.

Limitless
CBS, 10 p.m. (Sept. 22)
What happens when you take a pill that helps you access 100 percent of your brain? Perhaps you create a TV-show reboot of a surprisingly well-remembered movie.

Grandfathered

Another full house for star John Stamos, who plays a perfectly content bachelor and restaurateur who learns he’s actually not only a father but, gulp, a grandfather.


WEDNESDAYS

Moonbeam City
Comedy Central, 10:30 p.m. (Sept. 16)
More Rob Lowe! This animated Miami Vice parody — with voices by Lowe and Elizabeth Banks — spoofs everything ’80s, from the pastel outfits to the synth-heavy soundtrack.

Code Black
CBS, 10 p.m. (Sept. 30)
Marcia Gay Harden does her part to keep CBS prime time out of intensive care with this drama set in a busy ER unit.

Casual
Hulu (Oct. 7)
A comedy for cord-cutters involving online dating, intrafamily role reversals, and Jason Reitman (who’ll executive-produce the show and directed its pilot).

Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson are complete opposites who form an unlikely friendship when Lynch reveals she’s Lawson’s guardian angel.

Saints and Strangers
National Geographic (Thanksgiving)
Vincent Kartheiser serves up the heartwarming tale of the first Thanksgiving. (Presumably, nobody was eager to eat the cranberry sauce that came from a can that year either.)

The Wiz Live!
NBC, 8 p.m. (Dec. 3)
This one-night adaptation of the 1978 film, featuring Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, David Alan Grier, and newcomer Shanice Williams as Dorothy, follows in the divisive footsteps of Allison Williams’s Peter Pan Live! extravaganza.

FRIDAYS

Hand of God
Amazon (Sept. 4)
The charismatically rumpled Ron Perlman plays a grizzled, cursing judge who, when he isn’t doing such wholesome, law-abiding things as visiting prostitutes, believes his recent visions will help bring his daughter-in-law’s rapist to justice.

Dr. Ken
ABC, 8:30 p.m. (Oct. 2)
Ken Jeong, the scene stealer from Community, stars as a House-like doctor. That is, an excellent pathologist with no social skills. —M.Z.S.

Master of None
Netflix (Nov. 6)
Aziz Ansari stars in this quasi-autobiographical (his real dad will play his fictional dad) comedy about a man in his 30s who, as these things often go, suddenly realizes he’s got some growing up to do.


SATURDAYS

The Last Kingdom
BBC America, 10 p.m. (Oct. 10)

Flesh and Bone
Starz, 8 p.m. (Nov. 8)
Black Swan meets Center Stage meets real-world accuracy in this ballet-world mini-series, stocked with ABT dancers. Center Stage’s Charlie and Cooper — Sascha Radetsky and Ethan Stiefel — act and choreograph, respectively.

Into the Badlands
AMC, 10 p.m. (Nov. 15)
A warrior and a young boy seek enlightenment (consider it a helpful psychological reprieve after The Walking Dead).

I watched the 1st episode of "Blunt" starring Patrick Stewart. I don't think the shtick of seeing Captain Pickard loaded and sucking on hooker titties is going to carry this show through more than a couple episodes.

I hate septuagenarian Patrick Stewart. He's insufferable. He seems to think he's cute.

Coming soon in 2016...
The titular Westworld—originally created in 1973 by Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton—is a futuristic theme park where instead of lab-created dinosaurs running amok, you have terrifying robotic cowboys. So it’s not a stretch to imagine some boundary-crossing depravities going on when god complexes and compliant androids are in the mix.
But don’t expect those androids to stay compliant for long. The original Westworld film features a robotic revolt, and if the trailer is any indication, it could very well be Evan Rachel Wood’s abused android leading the charge.

I thought the Homeland and The Affair premieres were boooooring. But I thought The Leftovers was really good. I'm excited for that season.

That's my detailed tv analysis.

I can't believe we're not behind this season (re: Homeland). I'm finally enjoying it without missing Brody. I really liked the first episode. I haven't had time to catch up with The Leftovers. You can spoil this for me creep. In one paragraph, what is it about?

really nothing to spoil. no one knows what the fuck is going on. all we know is that one day a bunch of people everywhere disappeared.

you don't really need to know the first season to watch the second. just start with last weeks episode and you will be fine. don't let the first ten minutes throw you though.

s1
Three years after "The Sudden Departure," where two percent of the world's population disappeared suddenly, the townspeople of Mapleton struggle with life including Police Chief Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux), who has to deal with mysterious happenings in town, his two rebelling teenaged children, as well as a cult called the Guilty Remnant that includes Laurie (Amy Brenneman), a self-proclaimed prophet named "Holy Wayne" (Paterson Joseph), Rev. Matt Jamison (Christopher Eccleston), and Mayor Lucy Warburton (Amanda Warren) in this drama series based on Tom Perrotta's novel of the same name. Collapse


s2
Season two finds Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) retired and moving with Nora Durst (Carrie Coon) and his daughter Jill (Margaret Qualley) to the Jarden, Texas, a town untouched by The Departure. Also coming to town are Matt Jamison (Christopher Eccleston) has moved with his wife, Mary (Janel Moloney).

Anyone watch Bloodline on Netflix? I think it's on par with any Showtime or HBO series. I don't know anyone that's watched it, my wife and I blazed through the season in a week.

We started watching Luther a couple of weeks ago, good little show. Nothing too deep, but the performance of the main actor is quite good and the storylines can be intriguing. We already finished season 1, I'd recommend it.

How good was the acting? I love how season 1 went from dark family drama into a suspense type thriller. John Leguizamo ( I probably butchered the spelling) is in season 2, last I read is out this March. Danny was such a great character, I loved how the story unfolded and he got more and more scummy but you somehow kept rooting for him. The actor that played him stole the show
