Part 2 of 2

In the first part of this series, I wrote about upcoming shows. Now let's check out the returning ones this season. Some of the series I'm watching have already started like Doctor Who (3 episodes), Boss (5 episodes), and Grimm (season 2 episode 1 in a few hours) so this post is actually a little late. I've also been offline the past couple of weeks so I'm not sure if the details here are up-to-date so feel free to reply with corrections in the comments.

Alright then, I think we're all set. My returning TV shows picks, after the jump!

 

2 Broke Girls (season 2 starts September 24)
Why am I still watching this?
I started losing interest in this show halfway through the 1st season, but Beth Behr is just too darn cute to ignore.

How I Met Your Mother (season 8 starts September 24)
Why am I still watching this?
Unlike a lot of people, I am not too pissed anymore about the non-reveal the past 7 seasons. As long as they put out great episodes, I'll keep watching it. (But yeah please, throw us a bone this time.) Also, they're teasing TWO weddings this season. DUNDUNDUNNN

 

Modern Family (season 4 starts September 26)
Why am I still watching this?
This show has been consistently funny the past 3 seasons and I don't see anything changing anytime soon, especially since the cast's salary dispute issue was settled already.

Person of Interest (season 2 starts September 27)
Why am I still watching this?
I don't know, really. I am WAY behind the series (last one I saw was episode 4 I think) and I haven't had time to catch up. I liked what I saw though so I'm keeping this one.


Fringe (fifth and final season starts September 28)
Why am I still watching this?
I've been a loyal fan since the show started, and I'd like to see this through. Based on the promos I've seen, I think we're in for a fantastic finale.

Once Upon A Time (season 2 starts September 30)
Why am I still watching this?
Same shit with Person of Interest, but I think I got to episode 16 before I put this on the backburner.


Homeland (season 2 starts September 30)
Why am I still watching this?
After the events of season 1, I'm excited to see where they'll take the story next. Also, I hope Claire Danes has put on some weight since then because damn girl, you too skinny.

Revenge (season 2 starts September 30)
Why am I still watching this?
Emily Vandercamp Beats me. It's a guilty pleasure, that's for sure.


Bob's Burgers (season 3 starts September 30)
Why am I still watching this?
Still one of the funniest cartoons on my TV shows list.

Raising Hope (season 3 starts October 2)
Why am I still watching this?
Usually, shows slow down when they reach the 3rd or 4th season but it seems untrue in the case of this show. I just wish they'd change the cast dynamic a bit. A new girl for Jimmy to chase around, perhaps?


The Vampire Diaries (season 4 starts October 11)
Why am I still watching this?
I think I've gone past the point of giving a fuck when people laugh at me for following this show. The plot is interesting, the mythology is well-written, and I enjoy it, dammit. Anyway, Elena's a vampire. Let's see how that goes.

The Walking Dead (season 3 starts October 14)
Why am I still watching this?
Season 2, except for a few brilliant moments, was a big letdown for me. With the Governor/prison storyline coming up though, I'm expecting the show to kick it into high gear.


Suburgatory (season 2 starts October 17)Why am I still watching this?
It's one of those shows that I keep watching because it's light and uncomplicated.

American Horror Story: Asylum (season 2 starts October 17)
Why am I still watching this?
The first one wasn't as creepy as I expected, but it was still disturbing. Let's see what else Ryan Murphy has up his sleeve.


Nikita (season 3 starts October 19) 
Why am I still watching this?
Percy is dead, and Nikita and her team are now Division's head honchos. What's next?

Community (season 4 starts October 19)
Why am I still watching this?
I still can't get over the fact that Dan Harmon is out of the show. Go away.


Don't Trust the B-- in Apartment 23 (season 3 starts October 23)
Why am I still watching this?
Staying for Krysten Ritter. And that Dawson guy.

Happy Endings (season 3 starts October 23)
Why am I still watching this?
One of the funniest shows I'm following, and it just keeps getting better and better.

 

Touch (season 2 starts October 26)
Why am I still watching this?
Yep, still trying to catch up.

Game of Thrones (season 3 starts March 31)
Why am I still watching this?
No brainer, really.

Also, for those who are interested, here are the shows I've dropped from my list:
  • New Girl
  • The Big Bang Theory (lulz)
  • Glee (louder LULZ)
  • Hart of Dixie
Plus, the cancelled ones:
  • The Secret Circle
  • Awake (NOOOOOOOOOO)
  • The Killing
  • Breakout Kings
  • Alcatraz
  • Missing
  • Terra Nova
There you have it! Of course, I've yet to start on some shows that I've been dying to see (Breaking Bad, Firefly and Dexter come to mind) so I hope I find time for those too. If you have any other recommendations for me, I'd really appreciate it.

Cheers!
