The fall TV Schedule is beginning and the lineup includes returning shows, new shows and those guilty pleasures we hate to admit we love to watch. Let’s take a look at the genre shows that are upcoming, and some of the non-genre shows that I, for one, love to watch.
All times are for Eastern Timezone.
Castle (ABC) 10 PM Sept 19th.
Who doesn’t love the combination of Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic as author Rick Castle and Detective Kate Beckett? Plus, it really is fun to watch for nods & easter eggs from Fillion to his genre fans.
[NEW!] Terra Nova (FOX) 8 PM Sept 26th.
Terr Nova follows an ordinary family on an incredible journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a small part of a daring experiment to save the human race. In the year 2149, the world is dying. The planet is overdeveloped and overcrowded, with the majority of plant and animal life extinct. The future of mankind is in jeopardy, and its only hope for survival is in the distant past.

I know it’s a little late, but I wanted to share with you the books I brought back with me from WorldCon in Reno (an inevitability at any con with a decent dealer’s room).
The list includes a lot of stuff from smaller presses including Apex and Absolute Xpress – here we go…
