2012 Fall Premiere Shows...The Top 5 I'm Looking Forward Too

I know most of you can't wait for the new fall line up, thanking god that the dull summer season is finally over.  Every new season brings in a few shows that we look forward too, hoping they do well enough too last for a second season.  A few of my favorites from last year won't return, like The Finder starring Micheal Clarke Duncan who recently past away, and Alcatraz.  With those shows that aren't returning we have new ones to take their place.  Here's my top five picks for this coming fall.

5. The Neighbors
The Neighbors, a new show from ABC starring Jamie Gertz and Lenny Venito are a mother and father who move into a gated community with a few odd neighbors who turn out to be aliens.  The show is different and puts a new spin on a show, closesly resembling 3rd Rock from the Sun but showing it from the humans point of view in knowing their whole community is filled with little green men and women.  The Neighbors premieres Wednesday, September 26th at 8:30/7:30c.
4. Beauty and the Beast
Yes I know, its another show based on the popular tale of a woman who falls in love with a man, not for his looks but for his heart.  Beauty and the Beast is a remake of a popular television series that aired in the eighties, this time starring Kristen Kreuk and Kiwi Jay Ryan.  The beast is less of a beast and more of a man with just a scar on his face and the beauty, is well, still beautiful.  The show intrigues me because I did like the original and I liked Smallville which Kreuk starred in.  I don't think it will last but I bet it will have a cult following.  Beauty and the Beast airs on Thursday, October 11th at 9/8c on the CW.
3. Elementary
A different spin on the Sherlock Holmes story with Holmes, played by Johnny Lee Miller, now a recovering addict who consults with the NYPD.  Watson, played by Lucy Liu, a woman and former surgeon who helps her friend in solving the unsolvable cases.  I like the new take on the story and look forward to how it will progress.  Elementary airs Tuesday, September 25th at 10/9c on CBS.
2. Revolution

Another show from the mind of J.J. Abrams set in a post apocalyptic future.  The world is now dark and its now 15 years after the event that changed the world.  The series stars Elizabeth Mitchell, Tracy Spiridakos, Billy Burke and Giancarlo Esposito as a group of people trying to figure out what happened to the worlds technology and how to get it back.  Revolution airs Monday, September 17th at 10/9c on NBC.

1. Last Resort

The shows premise is different.  A nuclear submarine that goes rogue after defying an order to fire nuclear missles.  The crew goes on the run and finds sanctuary at a NATO base.  The submarine and crew declare themselves the worlds smallest nuclear station.  I'm not sure from the premise of the show that it will hold up but the commercials for it really gets me energized to watch it.  We shall see.  Last Resort airs September 27th at 8/7c on ABC.

There are many other shows airing this fall but I like the looks of the shows I just posted above.  What shows are you looking forward too?
