New and Returning Shows 10/19 and Beyond
100 (CW) - Last season was really good. Now we needs to know who is the real bad guys is, the Grounders, the Mountain Men, or maybe the Arkers.
Constantine (NBC) - Originally I wasn't going to watch this because it is clone of Supernatural, it has been getting a lot of nerd buzz so I will give it a try.
Grimm (NBC) - Nick lost his abilities as a Grimm. How will the new season play out?
Millers (CBS) - I didn't watch the first season but now that Sean Hayes is joining the cast I'll be adding this to my watch list.
Two and a Half Men (CBS) - Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher's characters are getting married even though the are straight. This might be an interesting season but I probably still won't watch it.
McCarthys (CBS) - This new comedy about a close family with a gay brother looks pretty good. I'll be watching this.
Elementary (CBS) - I enjoyed the Mycroft story arc last season. This show has been consistently good so I look forward to a third season.
State Of Affairs (NBC) - Katherine Heigl returns to TV as a CIA analyst attached to the White House. This is still a bit away so I can still decide if I want to watch this.
Ascension (Syfy) - This new Syfy show looks compelling. A large generation ship was launched into interstellar space 50 years ago and now in 2014 they are half way to their destination. I'm hopeful this will be good.

Today me and @happyfunmatt had a gaygasm at lunch when we heard that @eileen_davidson is joining S5 of #RHOBH.
The best Simpsons episodes from the last ten years
All's Fair In Oven War
What's it about: Marge enters cooking competition
Why I love it: Well the title alone is genius. The other competitors are so completely over the top mean to Marge you want to see them all fail. Then there is the fact that the kids don't age during the two year kitchen renovation.
This episode is on FXX on Friday 10/24
The Seemingly Never-Ending Story
What's it about: Homer gets wedged in a cave and the family tells stories.
Why I love it: The story is very well integrated and incredibly well written. Also the cave they visit is called Carl's Dad's Cavern. That joke alone is worth watching the entire episode.
The Haw-Hawed Couple
What's it about: Bart becomes friends with Nelson
Why I love it: The final joke alone is worth it. But also it is the introduction of the Harry Potter spoof book series Angelica Button.
What's it about: A documentarian returns to Springfield every seven years.
Why I love it: Burn's lake house and the back story of Crazy Cat Lady
Any Given Sundance
What's it about: Lisa makes a film about the family and submits it to Sundance
Why I love it: Homer's Shia LaBeouf wig, Skinner's other films, and the joke that there should only be one Simpsons film.
Smoke on the Daughter
What's it about: Lisa becomes a ballerina and a second-hand smoker
Why I love it: The final Angelica Button book has the best title ever: Angelica Button and the Deadly Denouement. Also Chazz Busby.
Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind
What's it about: Homer forgets what he did the night before and get suicidal
Why I love it: It's a very complicated story with great writing.
That 90's Show
What's it about: When Marge and Homer were dating, Homer was in a grunge band called Sadgasm
Why I love it: The constantly changing history of the family always amuses me.
Gone Maggie Gone
What's it about: Homer needs to find Maggie before Marge knows she missing
Why I love it: It's a bizarre spoof of puzzle movies like The Da Vinci Code. I love things that are different.
Angry Dad: The Movie
What's it about: Bart's short film about Homer gets nominated for an Oscar.
Why I love it: Lots and lots of movie and Oscar jokes.
What's it about: The family finds keys to every door in the city
Why I love it: Everyone has their own different adventure with the keys.
What's it about: Moe's Tavern transforms into a gay bar called Mo.
Why I love it: It's the third best gay episode.
Holidays of Future Passed
What's it about: In the future, the kids and their future families return to Springfield for Christmas.
Why I love it: This is the best future episode and the best Christmas episode. Homer is a much better grandfather than he is a father.
A Totally Fun Thing That Bart Will Never Do Again
What's it about: The family goes on a cruise.
Why I love it: The cruise devolves into a post-apoc landscape.
The Day The Earth Stood Cool
What's it about: Homer becomes a hipster
Why I love it: Homer becomes a hipster
What's it about: Burns becomes a crime fighting super hero
Why I love it: He's Fruitbat Man and Smithers pays Homer to masquerade as a villain so Burns can catch him over and over again.
The Saga of Carl
What's it about: Carl goes home to Iceland
Why I love it: Wait what? Carl is from Iceland?
Steal This Episode
What's it about: Homer shows pirated movies in the back yard.
Why I love it: Lots of guest stars and great jokes about piracy.
Brick Like Me
What's it about: Homer has a Lego fantasy dream
Why I love it: A great father daughter story with more than half the episode made from Lego bricks.

So disappointed in @ChrisLHayes for giving time to debunked author @rezaaslan. What's up next Anti-vaxers and climate deniers?

The Frozen mystery deepens on #OnceUponATime. This might be the best season yet.
I really love #AtoZ. Much better than #ManhattanLoveStory which only gets one more chance
New and Returning Shows this week 10/12-10/18
Affair (Showtime) - Well I don't have showtime so I guess I'm not watching this
Walking Dead (AMC) - Yay, new season. Are the people in Terminus cannibals? We will find out tonight.
Jane The Virgin (CW) - Why does CW keep trying to make comedies. This comedy about a virgin impregnated by technology sounds awful. However it does point out how unmiraculous the Virgin Mary myth is.
Marry Me (NBC) - This is my top new comedy I have been looking forward to this year. It has two of my favorites Casey Wilson and Ken Marino as the leads in this RomComSitCom. It is also was created by the creator of Happy Endings. I will happily watch it.
Things You Shouldn’t Say Past Midnight (DirecTV) - This is a comedy I don't know much about. It's about dating or something.

New and Returning Shows this week 10/5-10/11
The new shows are continuing this week. Here's what's debuting and returning.
Bob’s Burgers (Fox) - This show has finally hit the popularity it deserves. My favorite recurring joke is Tina's love for zombies. "They're dangerous, but I love their swagger"
Flash (CW) - I watched the leaked pilot and this show looks great. Unlike Arrow, this show will have meta-humans including Wentworth Miller as my favorite Flash adversary Captain Cold.
Supernatural (CW) - I'm glad Crowley is a full cast member this season. I'm looking forward to Demon Dean also.
American Horror Story (FX) - As much as I loved last season, the Freak Show really freaks me out. I just can't watch this season.
Arrow (CW) - I hope we see more of Amanda Waller. She's my favorite DC non-villain villain.
Star Wars Rebels (DXD) - Yay and new Star Wars show! This is about the time between episode 3 and episode 4.
Cristela (ABC) - I'm not that excited about this new comedy but I'm happy to see more diversity in sitcoms.
