Don’t know which new SF, fantasy & horror TV shows to check out this fall? We help you decide . . .

Grimm TV showNo shows with starship captains this fall, alas, now that StarGate: Universe is floating aimlessly between galaxies, but loads of other fantasy & horror shows heading our way.

Many of them are aiming to cash in on the enduring popularity of Twilight and its photogenic teens (yes, we’re looking at you here Kevin Williamson’s The Secret Circle).

Others follow the X-Files template as earth-bound “unofficial” law officials investigate strange goings-on in shows rich in their own mythology.

In this article we only look at shows new on air and in part 2 we’ll look at returning shows.

Sadly of the new shows only two can be vaguely classified as sci-fi:  executive producer Steven Spielberg’s Terra Nova (time travel) and Alcatraz, the new J.J. Abrams show (also time travel). The rest are either horror or fantasy.

So check out the trailers and promos below.

(Check your local listings for TV show times.)

ONCE UPON A TIME – SEASON 1

 

THE SECRET CIRCLE – SEASON 1

    Eh, lost all the Disquss comments when I fixed a bug with the WordPress template. Sorry everyone. But it seems to be working right now. God helps those who edits their own PHP files as they say . . .

    “Grimm” was not impressive.  I gave it two episodes and quit.  Haven’t watched “Terra Nova”, yet feel compelled to point out that Poul Anderson’s 1958 story “Wildcat” had exactly the same premise; I don’t suppose they’ve given him a credit?
