What I’ll be watching new next season (CBS)

CBS has released the trailers for their new shows coming this fall. From the bunch, I only intend to check out 4 of them.

Supergirl

There’s no way to escape this, the trailer looks cool, and I’ll give it at least a try 🙂 !!!

Kara Zor-El escaped her home planet of Krypton amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she has concealed her powers. But at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Starring Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Laura Benanti, Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, David Harewood and guest stars Helen Slater, Dean Cain and Jeremy Jordan.

Angel from Hell

I’m not sure about this one, and I’m afraid I’ll get attached to it only to find it cancelled prematurely. But I really like Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson, and I hope that this one sticks.

When Amy enters Allison’s life and claims to be her guardian angel, they form an unlikely friendship and Allison can’t be sure if Amy is an angel or just nuts. With Jane Lynch, Maggie Lawson, Kyle Bornheimer and Kevin Pollak.

Life in Pieces

This just looks like a lot of fun, and I adore the cast (fingers crossed!).

A comedy about one family told through the separate stories of its different family members.Starring Colin Hanks, Betsy Brandt, James Brolin, Thomas Sadoski, Angelique Cabral, Dianne Wiest, Dan Bakkedahl and Zoe Lister Jones.

Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders

I really liked this planted pilot and I’m really glad that Anna Gunn has stepped out…

The Criminal Minds spinoff focuses on a division of the FBI that helps American citizens who find themselves in danger abroad. With Gary Sinise, Tyler James Williams and Daniel Henney.

Supergirl first look

Yesterday, CBS released the first look into its new series Supergirl, and man, it actually looks SUPER.

This really took me by surprise, I didn’t have really high hopes for this show, and I was definitely not convinced by Melissa Benoist as Kara, but she actually looks and sound great. She’s adorkable… I do see a bit of Felicity Smoak on her (CBS, you shouldn’t rip CW content!).

It’s feminist all the way. I mean, you have 2 guys helping the girl to fulfill her destiny and not the other way around?! Groundbreaking from the start (for a Superman-ish point of view).

What do you think is so bad about Supergirl?

I’m a girl. And your boss. And powerful. And rich. And hot. And smart.

So, if you perceive Supergirl as anything less than excellent, isn’t the real problem YOU?”

– Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart)

I love Cat Grant already!

It’s not a bird, or a plane, or a MAN! It’s Supergirl! I only wished they had toned down on the references of her “cousin”. People, we get it! She’s Superman’s cousin, she knows it, the whole world knows it, there’s no need repeating it to exhaustion.

Supergirl first look

The first look at Kara Danvers née Zor-El is finally here! Supergirl just got herself a costume and it looks pretty cool! I’m honestly still not convinced about this show, but we’ll see.
