Fall TV Preview 2014

Television will rot your brain—and here’s True TV’s guide to blissful oblivion

Fall TV 2014: Cable

Returning series and new debuts on cable for fall 2014

Intruders, Doctor Who

More Reviews: True Blood, Rising Star, Legends
This supernatural-murder-conspiracy-horror production from Glen Morgan (The X-Files) doesn't have a breakout star like Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany, but it does sport an even creepier premise than cloning: "A secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodiesof others."

The Dogs of Summer

You're failing at watching all of the TV this season
The Summer of Too Much TV is nearly over and, besides Sharknado 2: The Second One and True Blood: The Finally Final Season, nothing has made much of a splash in 'Merica's above-ground pool.

Garfunkel & Oates, Outlander

More reviews: Black Jesus, The Knick, 4th & Loud
New Zealand musical-comedy duo Flight of the Conchords self-canceled their quasi-autobiographical HBO series partially because it was difficult to write so many songs for each episode—since Garfunkel & Oates (Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci) already have twice as many funny tunes to choose from than FOTC, maybe they'll last longer than two seasons.

The Quest, Partners

More reviews: The Killing, Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda, Bachelor in Paradise
The biggest fantasy of The Quest is that the producers think they've invented a whole new genre in combining reality TV and scripted storytelling—that's Every! Reality! Show! Ever! Made!

Sharknado 2: The Second One

Chum of All Fears: Take the Sharknado 2: The Second One quiz!
The Only TV Column That Matters™ has seen the glory of Syfy's Sharknado 2: The Second One in advance and can definitively report that it's even more ridiculous than 2013's surprise ... hit? ... Sharknado.

Married, You're the Worst

Also premiering this week: Rush, Satisfaction, The Lottery
Series Debut: Judy Greer, Nat Faxon, Jenny Slate, Brett Gelman, Regina Hall, John Hodgman, Michaela Watkins—any one of the players of Married is funny enough to headline their own series; thankfully, they've been assembled for a grownup cable comedy instead of wasted separately on more network filler (as they all have been before).
