We’re officially in the midst of TV’s fall season and series premiere schedule. And over the past few weeks, we’ve covered the latest episodes of “New Girl”, “The Mindy Project”, and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”, among others. Now, we’d like to shed some light on other shows that we’re looking forward to in the coming weeks as the best time of the year to own a TV continues on. Let’s get to it!
If you’re a frequent Pop City Life visitor, then you already know how excited we are for the five of “Glee”. We’ve even already heard a preview of what to expect in one of the episodes. Lea Michele’s stirring rendition of the Beatles’ “Yesterday” was shared with fans prior to the Sept. 26 season premiere. We’re still not sure how it will fit into the overall context of the show, but we can’t wait to see how the “Glee” writers make it work.
Before season five of ABC comedy “Modern Family” starts up on Sept. 25, fans have been speculating how a promo for the episode will pan out. The purposefully dramatic clip shows nearly every character on the show saying the word “Yes” before asking the viewer, “What’s the question?” Hmm, could it be related to the recent legalization of gay marriage in California? That is where the show takes place. We’ll have to wait and see!
“Parks & Recreation”
The “Parks & Recreation” crew is doing something a little different for the premiere of season six on Sept. 26 on NBC. Instead of the hour-long episode taking place in the town of Pawnee, Leslie Knope and company will be seen traveling overseas to London. Judging by this preview we just watched, it promises to be just as clever and quick-witted as ever. Also, no, Andy, Hogwarts isn’t real.
“The Michael J. Fox Show”
Admittedly, “The Michael J. Fox Show” is geared toward an older audience that grew up watching Michael J. Fox on shows like “Family Ties” and in the “Back to the Future” movies. But it’s important for younger viewers to get acquainted or at least introduced to such a revered actor. Michael has always been a fantastic actor and he has long held a special place in the hearts of many. And for those unfamiliar, this is his first time in a leading role in quite some time. He’s spent most of the past decade focusing on voice acting, cameos, and, most importantly, finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease. He was diagnosed with the disease in 1991.
“The Big Bang Theory”
It’s not terribly clear what exactly we should expect going into the season seven premiere of “The Big Bang Theory” based on this preview clip, but maybe that was the point. The show’s content tends to revolve heavily around the relationships between the show’s character—namely Leonard and Penny—so they’re probably throwing us all for a loop to make sure tune in to the season premiere. We will, of course, and you can, too, on the night of Sept. 26 on CBS.
While you’re watching these shows (and others, we’re sure), we found a pretty cool way to make your viewing even more entertaining.
