Kelli Giddish (“Past Life”) stars as U.S. Marshal Annie Frost, a cowboy boot-wearing deputy whose sharp mind and unique Texas upbringing help her track down the violent criminals on the run.

The Event green rate Fall TV 2010: New Shows Preview & Premiere Dates

the event 2010 fall television preview Fall TV 2010: New Shows Preview & Premiere Dates

Premieres: Monday, September 20, 9:00pm

Plot (courtesy of NBC): “The Event” is an emotional, high-octane conspiracy thriller that follows Sean Walker (Jason Ritter, “The Class”), an Everyman who investigates the mysterious disappearance of his fiancee, Leila (Sarah Roemer, “Disturbia”), and unwittingly begins to expose the biggest cover-up in U.S. history. Sean’s quest will send ripples through the lives of an eclectic band of strangers, including: newly elected U.S. President Martinez (Golden Globe nominee Blair Underwood, “Dirty Sexy Money”); Sophia (Emmy Award nominee Laura Innes, “ER”), who is the leader of a mysterious group of detainees; and Sean’s shadowy father-in-law (Scott Patterson, “Gilmore Girls”). Their futures are on a collision course in a global conspiracy that could ultimately change the fate of mankind.

Mini Review: The Event may very well be the series to replace Lost in the hearts of viewers. While the pilot leaves many questions unanswered, there are enough reveals to know that we won’t need to wait six seasons to understand what’s going on.

Outlaw green rate Fall TV 2010: New Shows Preview & Premiere Dates

outlaw 2010 fall television preview Fall TV 2010: New Shows Preview & Premiere Dates

Premieres: Friday, September 17, 10:00pm

Plot (courtesy of NBC): “Outlaw” is a new drama from executive producer John Eisendrath (“Alias,” “Felicity,” “Playmakers”). Cyrus Garza (Smits) is a U.S. Supreme Court justice who abruptly quits the high-level position. A playboy and a gambler, Garza had always adhered to a strict interpretation of the law until he realized the system he believed in was flawed. Now that he’s quit the bench and returned to private practice, he’s determined to represent “the little guy” and use his inside knowledge of the justice system to take on today’s biggest legal cases — and he’s making plenty of powerful people unhappy along the way.

Mini Review: While Outlaw could be labeled as just another legal procedural, Jimmy Smits, along with an extremely talented ensemble, prove that no matter how stale the genre may be, if done correctly, it’s still thoroughly entertaining. Outlaw is one of the more solid, completely realized, new series of the season.

Outsourced (have not seen)

Premieres: Thursday, September 23, 9:30pm

Plot (courtesy of NBC): “Outsourced” is a comedy where the Midwest meets the exotic East in a hilarious culture clash. The series centers on the all-American company Mid America Novelties that sells whoopee cushions, foam fingers and wallets made of bacon — and whose call center has suddenly been outsourced to India. Todd Dempsy (Ben Rappaport, off-Broadway’s “The Gingerbread House”) is the new company’s manager who learns that he’s being transferred to India to run the operation. Overwhelmed, Todd discovers that his new staff needs a crash course in all things American if they are to understand the U.S. product line and ramp up sales from halfway around the world. But as strange as America seems to his eclectic sales team, Todd soon realizes that figuring out India will be more than a full-time job.

Undercovers yellow rate Fall TV 2010: New Shows Preview & Premiere Dates

undercovers 0 2010 fall television preview Fall TV 2010: New Shows Preview & Premiere Dates

Premieres: Wednesday, September 22, 8:00pm

Plot (courtesy of NBC): Acclaimed writer/producer/director J.J. Abrams (“Star Trek,” “Fringe,” “Lost,” “Alias”) serves as co-writer, executive producer – and also directs – his first direction of a TV series pilot since “Lost” in “Undercovers” with executive producer/writer Josh Reims (“Brothers and Sisters”). “Undercovers” is a sexy, fun, action-packed spy drama that proves once and for all that marriage is still the world’s most dangerous partnership. Outwardly, Steven Bloom (Boris Kodjoe, “Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion,” “Soul Food,” “Resident Evil: Afterlife”) and his wife, Samantha (Gugu Mbatha-Raw, “Doctor Who,” “Bonekickers”), are a typical married couple who own a small catering company in Los Angeles and are helped by Samantha’s easily frazzled younger sister, Lizzy (Jessica Parker Kennedy, “Smallville”). Secretly, the duo were two of the CIA’s best spies until they fell in love on the job five years ago and retired. When fellow spy and friend Nash (Carter MacIntyre, “American Heiress”) goes missing while on the trail of a Russian arms dealer, the Blooms are reinstated by boss Carlton Shaw (Gerald McRaney, “Deadwood”) to locate and rescue Nash. The pair is thrust back into the world of espionage as they follow leads that span the globe — and Steven and Samantha realize that this supercharged, undercover lifestyle provides the excitement and romance that their marriage has been missing.

Mini Review: While Undercovers is entertaining, it feels as if we’ve seen this type of series before – not only on television, but specifically from J.J. Abrams (read: Alias). For those that tune in, you won’t see any groundbreaking television or sub-plots hinting that there’s something “larger” going other than what’s being shown – what you see is what you get.

  1. Looking forward to No Ordinary Family. Event sounds cool too!!! There sure is a whole lot of green dotted shows on this list though. Not sure if I can make all those lol :)

  2. Was Running Wilde really that bad? Arrested Development was amazing. What a let down.

    • i liked it.. terrible supporting cast in the main female character and the 12 year old is plain boring too. but will is right on the money

  3. Yur positive review of The Event is the only thing that may get me to watch it.
    As for the rest I will try to check out Most Of ABCs new lineup ,
    Although Right now I am leaning toward The Defenders as my new wenesday at 10pm show .
    The Whole Truth seems shaky to me.
    Nikita interests me, butI already feel those continuity issues your talking about.
    Its all ovr the commercials “6 years ago I was abducted,”3 years ago I got out”.
    All in all, a spot on review of the season to come.

  4. no Event for me, sorry. as for wednesday nights 10PM..Terriers takes that slot up for me.

  5. Great review of “Raising Hope” (best new show!!!).

    It made me forget I was going to rip you one giving Shatners show a red light, and for green lighting the Hellcats,,,
    :-)

  6. No Ordinary Family – Been looking forward to this for awhile.

    The Whole Truth – Based on your review I’ll give it a shot

    Blue Bloods – Based on your review I’ll give it a shot

    The Defenders – Same as above

    The Event – Been annoyed out of my mind with previews, but I’ll admit they peeked my interest a little. I was on the fence, but with the positive review I’ll check it out.

    Outsourced – Been looking forward to this

    Lone Star – Been on the fence I’ll give it a shot now though.

    Raising Hope – Been really looking forward to this show. The cast is hard to look at not trying to be mean it’s better than super models being cast. The show has looked hilarious for a long time. Waiting for it.

    Terriers – Crap just relized I missed the premier as soon as I saw your review and noticed the air date I cursed my self for forgetting to DVR it been planning to see it for weeks. Just opened guide and set the 1am showing to record.

    Thanks for the preview

  7. The Defenders looks the most interesting here, will watch that for sure.

    As giving the Shat’s new show a red light! Boo! Everything he does is great!

    • Drsam just got done watching Terriers it’s great. Very good show. I honestly loved every minute of it. Highly recommended.

      • I’ll give it a try then. It’s not a show I’ve heard anything about other than reading this article.

      • its filmed in san diego daniel, of course its a good show :)

  8. If I were doing this list, I say ‘skip everything’ except for “Smallville”, “V”, and “Supernatural”.

    “Nikita’s” main star looks too ugly, thin, and old. I will not bother to try.

    “Hawaii Five-0″ reminds me of my grandfather’s generation, so I will end up skipping that series. I will not bother to try.

    “Lone Star” reminds me of my parent’s obsession with “Dallas”, so I will skip that show entirely.

    Majority of the NEW series plainly stink. Yawn. Looks like Fridays and Tuesdays are the only days I will watch tv.

    • Why does Hawaii Five-0 remind you of you Grandfather’s generation? I don’t get it.

      • When I was around 5 years old in 1981, my grandparents use to watch “Hawaii Five-O” all the time. It made me cringe with each episode.

        “Hawaii Five-O” originally ran from September 20, 1968 – April 4, 1980, but my grandparents use to watch the reruns.

        Even though they have modernized the series for 2010, I will never-ever get over how horrible the original series was.

      • Best example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AepyGm9Me6w

    • Watching T.V. at your house must be boring as hell.

  9. Hawaii Five-0, was pretty boring for kids.

    I remember the opening theme, how the tidalwave would come before every commercial and the famous, “Book em Danno!” line that seemed to end every show.

    • See the link above your post. Hehehe…

    • its still a classic no matter how it gets bashed lol

      • Yup it’s a classic. I used to love watching reruns of it when i was a kid, along with the A Team, Knightrider and Airwolf.

        Airwolf needs a remake!!!

  10. what happened to the cape? I thought that was coming this fall!

  11. Undercovers was a refreshing change in television. To interest me, there has to be a plot in which I cannot tell what is going to happen next. I was mystified. I never knew what when why how or where. It will be sorely missed in the 2011 lineup. Well I guess I have to loo for it on Netflix or a DVD or the series at the store. PS Mini Review. Everything I saw was new to me, expecially the trips to the foreign countries. A couple of color at the top of their game was new and refreshing.
