New shows this week 2017-10-01
Ghosted - Fox
A new paranormal comedy with two of my favorite comic actors? Sign me up!
Wisdom of the Crowd - CBS
I have an unexplained hatred of Jeremy Piven. Plus this idea of crowd sources crime would never work. There would be more fake and fraudulent leads than real ones by far.
Ten Days in the Valley - ABC
I'm not exactly sure what this show is about. It's about a kidnapping that mirrors the story of a TV show the main character works on. It sounds interesting but my list is really full right now. I can't take on too many new shows.
9JKL - CBS
The preview had nothing funny in it. What is it with comedies not being funny? I know it can happed, just look at Will & Grace and The Good Place. Both are laugh out loud funny. CBS doesn't know what it is doing anymore.
The Gifted - Fox
If this is half as good as the other X-Men TV show, Legion, then it will still be worth watching. The creator is the guy who did Burn Notice so I have high expectations.
The Mayor - ABC
I still haven't decided if I want to watch this. It does have Rachel from Glee and Shirley from Community so that might change my mind.

Three changes @CBS could have made to make me watch #StarTrekDiscovery
- Set it in the future. The ship and tech already look like its past the Voyager level. Only some minor tweaks to the script and it could have been 100 years past Voyager at a point when the alliance between the Klingons and Federation had fallen apart. That would also explain why the Klingons look different, again. That would explain why we never saw the science officer's species before. That would explain why there is a robot or AI as a bridge officer when Data had been the first in Starfleet. That would explain why the Klingon's tech look like the Michal Bay Transformers. All the things that ruined my suspension of disbelief while watching it would have turned into surprise and great interest. But no, for the third time in a row, Star Trek went backwards instead of forwards. No one wants to go backwards.
- Drop all the season at once. Maybe if I knew I could see how this whole season arc played out this week, I might sign up. Some people might watch it and cancel but lots of people wouldn't bother. I subscribed to Netflix years ago to watch Arrested Development and four years later, I'm still a subscriber.
- Just show it on CBS. I watched every episode of Enterprise even though it started out really bad. The last season was much better than the first three. If they show it, people will watch. As it is now, I just don't even want to illegally download it.
