Opinion: New fall shows to watch

The fall lineup is coming soon,  here are a few of the series premiers to look out for:
“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Some of the greatest superheroes ever created fighting villains in one action-packed movie. What could be better? Apparently, ABC has the answer with their new show, Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Sure, the show won’t be the same without some iron or red, white and blue spandex, but “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is sure to rock the ratings.
The Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division is a government organization created to protect the earth from otherworldly threats.
However, “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”  is not quite  so bold. Instead of stopping worldwide destruction, the show instead seems to be about this super secret branch of the government which has agents mostly with no extraordinary powers, aside from their ability to throw a punch or two.
The shows stars Agent Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, a man who at the very least had a cameo appearance in most of the superheroes films.
Compared to many of the new shows premiering this fall, “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is a show that actually has some sustainability because not many people seem to get sick of watching heroes save the world.
Why else would there be a second and third round of films for most of the Avengers?
Needless to say, ABC has a habit of creating big budget shows, such as “Once Upon a Time,” which has completely paid off for them. Hopefully their newest show will do the same. “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will premier on ABC on Sept. 24 at 7 p.m.
“Once Upon a Time in
Down the rabbit hole Alice goes, and apparently that’s exactly where her father thought she went in another one of ABC’s newest shows, “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.” Finally, someone had the sense to tell Alice that caterpillars do not actually smoke hookah.
Based off of English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson’s novel “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” which has since been adapted into a few films over the years, “Once Upon a Time” creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have decided to create a show centered around when Alice made it back from Wonderland.
Basically, Alice got herself locked up in an asylum for telling her father a rabbit opened up a portal to another world called Wonderland.
While there, she also fell in love with a genie, who then comes and rescues her from the asylum with the famous rabbit, pocket watch included.
While this show does have a lot of potential, what is worrisome is its sustainability.  What eases this worry is that I felt the same way after the first season of “Once Upon a Time,” and its creators were able to keep the show going to a third season, so hopefully Horowitz and Kitsis will be able to keep their newest show lasting multiple seasons as well.  “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” premiers on ABC on Oct. 10 at 7 p.m.
“The Crazy Ones”
Any show that has a star like Robin Williams is bound to attract attention, but pair him with Sarah Michelle Gellar and CBS might have a hit on their hands. Willams and Gellar play father and daughter in the high-stakes world of advertising in their new series “The Crazy Ones.”
The comedy centers on their relationship as a family, with Willams being the one cracking all of the jokes and Gellar having to be the rational part of their relationship.
The show has a lot of potential, with Kelly Clarkson guest starring in the first episode, and probably many other celebrities to come. “The Crazy Ones” seems to finally step away from this awkward documentary-style humor that networks have become accustomed to, like NBC’s “The Office” and Fox’s new show “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” and on to bigger and better versions of slapstick humor.
Needless to say, the stars of the show alone are enough to excite most.  “The Crazy Ones” premiers on CBS on Sept. 26 at 8 p.m.
