Its interesting to see the placement of Jane The Virgin, as the network is looking to promote the show on the strength of the popularity of Supergirl.
No Tomorrow is a new entry described as a comedy. Evie Callahan (Tori Anderson), a risk-averse quality-control assessor, appreciates order. Whenever she’s making a list, “make a list” is both the first thing on it and the first thing crossed off. Then Evie meets charming, free-spirited Xavier Holliday (Joshua Sasse), and the attraction is immediate and electric. He brings a jolt of joyful, rollicking romance into her life. Xavier encourages Evie to carpe that diem, because it’s more fun that way and because, well, the apocalypse is, you know, nigh.
Frequency is the tv version of the movie which starred Jim Cavizel and Dennis Quaid. Detective Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) has always wanted to prove that she is nothing like her father. In 1996, when Raimy was eight years old, NYPD Officer Frank Sullivan (Riley Smith) left Raimy and her mother, Julie (Devin Kelley), behind when he went deep undercover, got corrupted, and got himself killed. Or so the story has always gone. Now, twenty years later, Raimy is stunned when a voice suddenly crackles through her father’s old, long-broken ham radio – it’s Frank, somehow transmitting over the airwaves and through the decades from 1996.
While the mid-season line up is set to release The 100, iZombie, The Originals, Reign, along with the premiere of Riverdale, the Archie Comics adaptation. This has sparked my interest in some of the shows.
The new season begins Tuesday, October 8.
