E: October was good, but November is going to be even better. In fact, I’m not sure even December can beat this November for awesome and exciting looking movies.
M: I know I have movies I’m VERY excited for, and have been waiting for for a long time! Heck, I’m starting the month by going to the theater on the 1st, and will be going to a midnight show later in the month, too. Woohoo!
E: This November has a little something for everyone – animation, documentaries, epic action, biopics, literary adaptations, football movies, the works. It even has the most promising romantic comedy in years. Continue reading →
C: Formerly known as Fringeday, I’m not sure what Friday thinks it has to offer now. Are there even shows on?
E: Yes, there are TV shows on Friday nights. Quite a few, actually, including some bonafide hits.
M: As we’ll note below, Friday seems to be a little schizophrenic these days, serving the dual role of being one step away from cancellation for some shows, and a less crowded home where they can find their audience for others.
E: In past years we’ve included Saturday’s programming here, but it turns out that there’s genuinely nothing this year on Saturdays at all except the college sports game of the week. Here’s a quick key to help you as you read:

E: Gentle readers, welcome to the always highly anticipated Relatively Entertaining Fall Television Previews! It has in the last several years become our custom to present a night-by-night preview of each season’s offerings, including both returning and new shows. We cover the major nets, as well as the better-known cable shows – or at least the ones that pique our interest and conform to network scheduling norms. This year, Monday brings a pleasant mix of old favorites and intriguing new shows; after a few early hours of comedy and reality competitions, the 10pm is quite the log-jam. Wondering which new show to watch? Read on! And as always, if we haven’t included something that you watch or were thinking about watching, please leave a comment and convince us why we’re missing the boat!

E: When did May becomes the best summer movie month? Because the popcorn epics you long to see? They’re in May. Those hot documentaries you want to see to impress your hipster friends? They’re all in May. The sequels? May. May May May May May.
M: Well, given that Star Wars opened in May in 1977, I think it’s been a while.
E: Yes, but it’s not just one movie. It’s at least one every weekend, for five weekends in a row. It’s awesome.
M: As for the “hot documentaries,” as you well know I have little interest in seeing anything to impress any hipsters, friend or foe. I’ll see the documentary if it’s interesting to me.
C: Yeah, hot documentaries seems like a contradiction in terms. And there are some good movies coming in June too. But May is starting off with a bang!
