What’s on TV this fall? Apparently the retro 60’s are still big post-Mad Men, with premiering shows like PanAm and The Playboy Club. Horror is also in, with American Horror Story and Grimm enticing audiences.
There are the golden oldies like yet another iteration of Charlie’s Angels and critics’ new favorites like Homeland and Up All Night. And how could we round-up this season’s premieres without a moment to reflect on the final episode of the day-time soap All My Children, after 10,707 episodes. Patt reviews the good, the bad, and the ugly.
What are you looking forward to this season? Anything not worth changing the channel for?
