CW Fall Season

Here you can find longer trailers for all the new CW fall shows.

Strange they only picked The 100 as mid-Season because it looks the most interesting out of all. Tomorrow People can go either way, thematically it looks like a cross between Jumper and Mutant X and I hope that is where the similarities will end.

Unfortunately with Reign the bad acting practically leaps at you, even in this 4-minute trailer. Shudders. Star-Crossed looks to be a mixture of Roswell and I am Number 4 and not a good one at that. And I liked Season 1 of Roswell.

The Originals is basically just scenes from the backdoor Pilot so at this point you don`t really get a feel for this show.

I give the CW credit for trying to develop some genre fare and go back to their WB roots but either I`m gettting too old (entirely possible) or TV truly just isn`t what it used to be. God knows the golden-day-WB-shows had their trash factor, too, but somehow they seemed more sophisticated.

Hmm... thanks for the link but there was nothing to keep me interested. I think i'll check The 100 for the theme but the lead girl is already too annoying for my taste.
Do you have any links for trailers of new shows from other networks?

Sorry, no other networks in general. I did see trailers for both Dracula and Sleepy Hollow on youtube, though. Don`t have the links anymore but if you search those on youtube, you should be able to find them.

Thanks, i'm not a fan of anything vamp. Ans is Sleepy Hollow made by original story or it's some sort of adoptation? I think i'll check it out.

Sleepy Hollow is basically the same story but set in the present, Ichabod Crane is transported through time and teams up with a present-day Sheriff to defeat the Horseman (and various other ghosts).

I wasn`t keen on the time-travel bit but the trailer looked really fun.

It may be interesting then.
It might be aging cause watching all those CW trailers made me think *aw, cool idea but bad casting, too many nakkid teens*, LOL.

Probably the aging factor. I know I cringe at things that I'm sure would have rocked my world when I was younger.

Heh. Could be. I still love lots of shows from my teenage time but I think that might be the rose-tinted glasses of nostalgia because I do see the problems more nowadays.

Man, depressing to think I`m probably getting too old for certain shows. :/

I am pretty sure I would have loved Star-crossed as an early teen, but right now it just makes me laugh out loud from the silliness. Aliens? And the only thing that makes them different is some big tattoo on their face?

Hard to say about Star-Crossed, the concept I would have loved but the actors left me cold somehow.

Prosthetic noses/foreheads are copyrighted by Star Trek. *g*
The looks don`t bother me too much even, I expect as much from the CW where the motto is "pretty young people who will hopefully not run into the camera". They would never go for a look like for example Irisa on Defiance even though it can be classified as "exotic beauty" because it is too out of the norm for young teens.

Eh, I will likely give all of them a try. After all, if I go in with low expectations I can`t be hit with the epic whiplash of "dear god, did this Season turn to ultra-suck after the winter break" like SPN.
