Five Shows We Need To Watch This Fall

The dog days of summer is upon us. Nobody likes it. Maybe I do. I know for sure I won't be missing cutting my grass in this hot summer heat. God loves Georgia so much that he blessed us with too much sun. With the end of the heat comes the cold nights of being inside. No traveling for me. Just so happens that all the new shows come out at this time as well. This is shaping up to be one good winter. Let's jump in. 

 NCIS (CBS - September 22, 2015 8/7c)
Remember when I used to be hooked on this show? I would live for each marathon. You just couldn't pull me away. Fast forward to today. I have miss the whole last season. I haven't been into the show since Ziva left. I was kinda protesting. I got around to watching the season before last  and it was cool. I started to catch this season. Watched one episode. The problem being, when I switch from AT&T, I also lost the episodes I had saved. I see that it's now on Netflix. Hopefully they update with the new season soon.  

 NCIS follows a fictional team of Naval Criminal Investigative Service Major Case Response Team (MCRT) special agents based at the Washington, D.C. field office in Washington Navy Yard, Washington, D.C

 Update: Wow, I'm stupid. I was actually watching the last season. I seen 10 of the episodes. So I can take the last 14 and knock them out this weekend. I can't believe it only been 12 seasons. Seem like it's been more. 

Modern Family(ABC  September 23, 2015 9/8c)
Most of the shows that you watch nowadays, you end the 30 minute sitcom and wish that it was an hour long. The story is never rushed but you really would loved more. Modern Family just seems to hang at that 30 minutes and it's enough for everybody.  It's just the way they lay out. They get you in, give you the food and get you out. Cause you never want to feel as if you need too much more from a show. Modern Family never really follows a story line. You can miss an episode and still watch the new one and not be lost. I love that. 

Modern Family follows the lives of Jay Pritchett and his family, all of whom live in suburban Los Angeles. Pritchett's family includes his second wife, his stepson, and infant son, as well as his two adult children and their spouses and children

Empire (FOX  Wed, Sep 23, 9/8c)
I won't be watching this as it comes on as the same time as Modern Family and Black ish again this year. Actually, I might will. I don't know yet. I feel like Black Ish needs the view but I'll have to think about this for awhile. Actually, I'll watch Empire. I enjoy the live tweeting. I can catch Modern Family and Black ish on the DVR. Yeah, I really just work that out as I typed it. 

Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), a former drug dealer now turned hip hop mogul and CEO of Empire Entertainment, learns he has ALS. His life begins to cave in around him after his past sins come back to haunt him following his diagnosis. Lucious, looking to groom one of his three sons (Andre Lyon (Trai Byers), Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett), and Hakeem Lyon (Bryshere Y. Gray) to take over the family business, pits them against each other. Empire also stars Taraji P. Henson as Lucious' ex-wife Cookie Lyon, the mother of his three sons who somehow is released from prison

Fresh Off The Boat (ABC September 22, 2015 8:30/7:30c)
The story follows the course of Eddie Huang's Taiwanese family as they make their way from Chinatown of Washington, D.C. to Orlando, Florida to open up a cowboy-themed steak restaurant in 1995 (with the first season being set between 1995 and 1997). His mother struggles with the culture clash of her Chinese upbringing with a Florida community that doesn't have a large Chinese population,  his father embraces the "American Dream", and Eddie struggles with assimilating into school. Eddie's brothers are the stereotypical Asian over-achievers, in an over-the-top way, but have no problems fitting in.

 How to Get Away with Murder (September 24, 2015 10/9c)
  Annalise Keating is a prominent criminal defense attorney and a law professor at Middleton University. She selects five students to intern at her firm: Wes Gibbons, Connor Walsh, Michaela Pratt, Asher Millstone, and Laurel Castillo. They work with Annalise's employees, Frank Delfino and Bonnie Winterbottom, an associate lawyer. As Season 1 introduces occasional clients for Keating, it explores two significant murders through flashbacks: Lila Stangard, mistress of Annalise's husband Sam Keating and a student at Middleton; and then Sam Keating at the hands of Annalise's interns.
