TV Line-up: Top 5 Action/Adventure Shows

It’s only a few months or less before all of our favourite shows will be coming off hiatus, and there are quite a few new shows coming to our screens. I thought I’d let you know what shows you should be looking out for. Or the ones that I’ll definitely be checking out.

1. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  (Sep 24)

Joss Whedon’s Marvel television series is highly anticipated, and I mean, its Whedon, so you know its already going to be amazing. The pilot was aired at comic con, where it apparently had a positive reception. The series is going to pick up where The Avengers left off, but focusing on the Agents (as the title suggests) as they work together to handle superhuman individuals and strange cases. Agent Phil Coulson is returning, along with Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill. This is the show I’m definitely the most excited about. Check out the trailer for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. here.


2. The Originals (Oct 3)

If you’re a fan of The Vampire Diaries, however cheesy it might be, this show is a definite must. If you’re not, then I don’t know if this show is for you. I recommend watching The Vampire Diaries and seeing how you feel about it (it is cliché vampire love triangle, be warned, although a pretty fun show to watch). The Originals is a spin-off of the show, focusing on the original vampire family. Sound tacky already? Watch the trailer here.


3. The Tomorrow People (Oct 9)

A guy who teleports unwillingly in his sleep has actually got superhuman abilities – and so do a whole bunch of other people. It looks a lot like X-Men crossed with Heroes, and who doesn’t like people with superpowers fighting evil? The main protagonist is played by Robbie Amell, Stephen Amell from Arrow‘s younger brother. Of course, It’s the CW, so it’ll probably be cancelled after a few episodes if it turns out to be a flop, or if not enough people are watching. Check out the trailer here.


4. Once Upon A Time In Wonderland (Oct 10)

If you’re a fan of Once Upon A Time, or if even you’ve never watched an episode, this show could be for any lover of Alice in Wonderland, Disney and fairytales. The show is a spin off from Once Upon A Time, and already looks set to impress, moving away from the world of Storybrooke, Maine into Wonderland. Alice is a girl trapped in a mental asylum, I presume for believing in Wonderland and all her adventures there, and falls in love with a genie? Something like that. Trailer trailer TRAILER.


5. Almost Human (Nov 4)

Finally, this show starring Star Trek‘s Karl Urban explores a futuristic world in which humans and robots live side-by-side, and human cops and androids are partners. The main character John Kennex who disapproves of the robots, gets paired up with an android named Dorian, who is one with actual emotions. Then it looks like they fight crime, or something. I’m really pumped for this show. Not as pumped as I am for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but something starring Karl Urban is bound to be awesome. The trailer also looks really promising, check it out here.


So ultimately, as always, I’ll probably spend most of time locked up indoors watching all of these shows. Some of them may not be to your liking, but I hope I’ve given you a little bit of insight as to what’s coming to your screens this Spring. Or Fall if you’re American.

Happy procrastinating,

Lauren 🙂
