Trailers for most of the new fall series have been spread across the internet in the few weeks since the 2012 Upfronts and they always bring a mixed bag of thoughts and feelings with them. Here is a series of posts of my reactions to the new shows on network television for Fall 2012. These views are based on what I see in the trailers below and remember that I am picky with my thoughts.
Now we come across ABCs set of trailers and they have a lot of them. ABC has 5 new shows for this fall and 4 more set for midseason. ABC has been building themselves as a soapy, female sckewed network, but some of these shows look to be changing that. I watch a good number of ABC shows A) good comedy: Happy Endings, Don’t Trust the B- in Apt. 23, & Suburgatory, B) old school realty: The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, & Bachelor Pad, C) soapy twisty dramas: Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, & Revenge.
The Neighbors – Wednesdays 9:30 PM
Starring Jami Gertz & Simon Templeman
My Thoughts: This show looks horrible! Is this a bad skit or something? I love Jami Gertz from her horrible character in ‘Twister’, but no! The premise sounds stupid and the execution looks bad. Good news is it isnt fighting with much at all in its target and gets a nice Modern Family lead-in, who hopefully leave quickly so they can put Happy Endings or Apt 23 back in that time slot.
