We’ve made it through the vast new televised choices, but wait… There’s more!
Wednesday, October 19
Hulu rolls out another series on their streaming network. ‘Chance’ stars Hugh Laurie as a forensic neuropsychiatrist that gets wrapped up in all kinds of wrong.
Friday, October 21
‘Black Mirror’ is back on Netflix. I understand that the series is well-liked by the majority of critics, but I found the first episode slower than Danica Patrick on a tricycle at Talladega and never investigated further.
The CW rolls out ‘The Vampire Diaries’ at 8pm and ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ and 9pm on an evening that generally means “we’re putting you out of your misery”. So things aren’t looking up for those two series.

‘Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency’ debuts on BBC America at 9pm. The name pretty much sums up the plot, but the detective investigates things involving the supernatural. It’s good to see Elijah Wood working again after FX’s take on ‘Wilfred’.

The show that EVERYONE has been waiting for returns to AMC at 9pm, ‘The Walking Dead’. Who gets a taste of Negan’s bat named Lucille?
I’ve got my theory just like everyone else. We’ll finally learn which character or characters will be written out of the series.

Since we needed another failed series starring Matt LeBlanc, CBS has answered the call with ‘Man With A Plan’. Mom joins the workforce after being a stay-at-home mother for thirteen years and Dad gets a taste of what he’s been missing with his little angelic offspring. The series is touted as a comedy, but since CBS is broadcasting the offering I don’t expect a single chuckle.
And that does it for this week.
