Coming soon ....

A new year means new TV series, and that always makes me happy!

Here are some of the new series starting this month:

Marvel's Agent Carter
We have been watching all the other Marvel shows (movies and tv series) so we will for sure watch this

I saw the first episode of this series and Loved it! This should be really good.

I love Amanda Peet

Man Seeking Woman
I think Jay Baruchel is really funny so I hope this show does not disappoint

I'm going to watch the first episode of this and see what I think, I mean it has Stanley Tucci in it, but still, not 100% confident that I'm going to like it

Galavant - you can read my post about it here

Donnie Loves Jenny
I'm quite a big fan of all things Wahlberg so I'm happy to watch these two. Plus I think they make a totally cute couple

I watched the first episode of this and it really is quite an interesting question. I mean, what would I change if I could go back and change one single thing?

This English series is directed by Danny Boyle who is quite a controversial comedian and looks like it could be fast paced. I'm also a fan of  James Nesbit

Eye Candy
I must admit that I was rather surprised that this was a MTV production cause it looks really good.


I know I'm going to enjoy this one!

What new shows will you be watching this January?

Sing his name!

Okay, I just had to watch the first two episodes of this new abc series cause it is just too strange not to.

I mean, Vinnie Jones in a medieval musical????

What is it all about? A hero who has lost his spark in life after losing the love of his life to the evil King Richard. But is King Richard really evil? Or is the love of his life actually a bitch? Oh and did I mention that is a musical.

This new series is the brain child of Dan Fogelman (Crazy Stupid Love, Tangled, Last Vegas …) composer Alan Menken (A Whole new world, Aladdin, Kiss the girl, the Little Mermaid) and lyricist Glen Slater.

It stares Timothy Omudson as King Richard, Vinnie Jones as Gareth the kings right hand man, Mallory Jansen as Madalena the love quest and Joshua Sasse as Galavant.

I can’t tell you if it is going to be good, bad, or terrible yet. Regardless I'll probably end up watching the whole series just cause, well it is a medieval musical starring Vinnie Jones. Oh and John Stamos was in the second episode.

Have you seen it?

If not, take a look at the trailer:
