Resident Troll: Five New TV Shows I'm Looking Forward To

I watch too much TV. This may have to do with the fact that I'm home all the freaking time. I love a good story, but I also love a good laugh. So here are five new TV shows I'm looking forward to.

THE NEW NORMAL: It's a TV show about two gays and their surrogate. I watched the pilot with my mum, and it's actually really good. And yeah, go put your homophobic comments at the door. It's funny. The only thing I'm kind of iffy about is that it attempts to drag out the dreaded flamboyant gay man stereotype. Either way, I'm hoping this is better than Glee in the long run.

REVOLUTION: Another one I saw the pilot of. It definitely have the potential to be great, or it could end up being like Terra Nova, crippled by the whole 'family appeal' of it. It's an interesting premise, and I do love  when media destroys the world then reinvents it.

ARROW: I just keep thinking please let this one be good. It's what I'm most looking forward to. Katie Cassidy bothers me, but the rest of it looks really good. I don't really fancy the CW (most of their programming is really mindless) but... fingers crossed? If not, there will be many angry Green Arrow fans, and Arrow will be that-thing-that-doesn't-exist-shh. Kind of like what I'm hoping Korra season one will become if season two is good.

LAST RESORT: Last Resort definitely has a Lost-ish feeling, but I kind of like the idea of taking over an island by force. It brings about an anti-hero feeling, which is something that's hard to find with television these days.

THE MINDY PROJECT: After hearing a lot about it, I watched the pilot and it actually made me laugh. That's basically my requirement for a comedy, and here we are. Not a big fan of the romcom obsessed aspect of the main character, but you win some, you lose some.

And there you have it! If you'd like to see a post on returning TV I'm looking forward to, let me know in the comments!
