Mid-Season New and Returning Shows (2013)


The holidays are here and all your shows are in reruns or got cancelled (I’ll miss you Emily Owens, M.D). I know you are pretty anxious for their return. Don’t fret, you can find the dates of every single show’s return date as well as new shows that will be premiering this Winter at the bottom of this post. Shows return as early today, the 1st of the year. Here are some the returning and new shows I’m looking forward to.

The Americans (FX) Series premiere January 21 @ 10/9c.

Keri Russell back on television?? YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! And playing a bad ass?? Double YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! FX has stepped up their game when it comes to their programming (Sons of Anarchy, Justified, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia,etc) and this show looks like it will be no exception. This show set in the Cold World era stars Keri Russell (Felicity, Mission Impossible 3) and Matthew Rhys (Brothers & Sisters, The Edge of Love) as KGB officers, who are working as sleeper agents trained to impersonate American citizens in Washington D.C. This is going to be great. Hopefully this show will do well and keep Russell on TV where she belongs.

The Good Wife (CBS) Season 4 resumes January 6th @ 10/9c

Season 4 hasn’t been the best but it’s still been better than half the shows on television. This season we are in the middle of has been very hit and miss, mostly because everything is not in sync. The storyline with Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) and her husband, played by Marc Warren (Doctor Who, Mad Dogs) is one of the biggest missteps that has happened to this show. The show creators, Robert and Michelle King, told TV Guide recently, they are going to fix things. They stated:

“You don’t give James Bond a girlfriend. Some characters you actually don’t want to see that much backstory. We’re adjusting. No matter where we went, this was not a place where the audience wanted to go.”

Hopefully the ship gets righted with the rest of the season. Check out the promo for the next new episode, “Boom De Ya Da.”

Footloose


Footloose is another wonderful remake that Hollywood is blessing us with this year.  It stars former Justin Timberlake back up dancer Kenny Wormald and former Dancing With the Stars pro Julianne Hough. The movie is about a kid from Boston (Kenny Wormald) who moves to a small town in Georgia called Bomont, where loud music and dancing has been outlawed. He comes and rebels against the town authority and tries to gain his right to dance. Hahahahahahah omg I just burst out laughing typing that last sentence. The movie sounds so ridiculous and it is. I can’t say if this version was better than the 1984 original with Kevin Bacon because I barely remember it but I’m sure the original was better because what I watched was awful. The acting, the dancing ughh AWFUL. My gosh why is Julianne Hough trying to be an actress. She’s not good. There were supposed to be some tearful and emotional scenes happening and she couldn’t even cry in them. I mean I just think if you are going to be an actress, one of the basic skills you have to master is crying when the scene calls for it. I mean use an onion  to get the tears going or something. Even if Hough could master that she still wouldn’t be a good actress. Dennis Quaid also stars in the movie playing Julianne Hough’s preacher father and the main reason dancing is banned from Bomont. I have been reading the reviews for this movie and they are all saying how great and wonderful it is and I just don’t get it at all. At first I thought well maybe I need to watch it again to see if I am wrong but I just can’t see putting myself through that torture for a second time so my original opinion stays. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY!! If you do want to see for yourself, Footloose hits theaters Friday 10/14.
