Fall TV: New CW Shows

cwfall2014

The CW is a network that isn’t really my demographic. It is usually aimed at teenage girls, but I seem to find myself watching a lot of shows on it anyway. Most of the shows are guilty pleasures, even among the critics that regularly watch the shows. This year though, they seemed to be genuinely excited about these two new shows. I’m going to be checking both out.

The Flash

Premieres Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at 8/7c

Cast: Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Rick Cosnett, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin

A spin-off from Arrow about a man who becomes super fast after a lab explosion where he works as a forensic investigator.

My Take: This looks like a lot of fun. Critics have also fell in love with the pilot so it gives me high hopes for yet another superhero show.

Jane the Virgin

Based on a telenovela, Jane is a virgin with a boyfriend who is about to proposed to her when she finds out that her gynocologist accidentally artificially inseminated her with sperm from her new boss. It’s all a bit complicated.

My Take: It all sounds incredibly ridiculous, but I still want to watch it. It does make me feel better than critics loved this show very much too so I think I’m going to try the ridiculousness out.

  1. Have you been watching Flash’s spinneroff Arrow? The first season was at best a very guilty pleasure, but in the second it’s actually become quite good. There’s a solid supporting ensemble (variously of scifi and soaps, of course for CW) and all the main players but one have achieved a respectable depth of characterization.
