Top 5 TV Shows for Fall 2013
So, out of all the latest TV shows to air, there are a few that really stand out as the best of the best, with Emmy award winning potential. Here is a little bit more about these excellent TV choices.
Marvel’s Agents of the S.H.E.I.L.D.
Brought to you by super producer, director, creator genius Joss Whedon, who also brought you The Avengers, Agents of the S.H.E.I.L.D is based on the secret intelligence agency that appears in most Marvel Comics. S.H.E.I.L.D stands for Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate. It stars Clark Gregg, Ming Na, Elizabeth Henstridge, Chloe Bennet, and Brett Dalton.
If you ever wondered what happened to James Spader post Boston Legal, the answer is here! He is the star of a brand new, intense psychological drama, The Blacklist, where he plays a criminal mastermind, who comes forward and gives himself up to the authorities. Strangely, he also offers to give up everyone he has ever worked with – his only request is to deal exclusively with a new FBI agent played by Megan Boone. The Blacklist was created by John Eisendrath who also created his award winning hit series, Alias.
J.J. Abrams has done it again, producing this futuristic action packed police drama, Almost Human. 35 years from now, human like androids have integrated themselves into society and the show tells the story of a police officer who does not particularly like the robotic race, who is unexpectedly partnered with an android who has unique emotional responses. Together they solve crimes and form a unlikely bond. The show is created and also produced by J.H Wyman who also did Fringe.
With a talented cast and creative team, Hostages is set to be one of the most suspenseful series of 2013. From the creators of Homeland and Law & Order, Hostages tells the story of a top notch surgeon, played by award winner Toni Collete, who is suddenly thrown into the middle of a political conspiracy, and her family is held hostage by Duncan Carlisle, played by Dylan McDermott, a rogue FBI agent.
Once Upon a Time in Wonderland
A period TV series based on the Adventures of Alice in Wonderland, where Alice’s strange visions and tales of a special land beyond the rabbit hole, has her family worried and wondering about her mental well being. From the creators of Lost, this story takes the traditional fairytale and turns it upside down as doctors try to cure the seemingly troubled girl. Starring Sophie Lowe and John Lithgow.

I live in Canada. I am a fan of films and books. I am also addicted to Korean Dramas and Bollywood films.
I spend most of my spare time with my family, but if I have a moment, you’ll always find a book in my hands. Yes, I read ebooks too:)
