The first episode of Backstrom finally airs on Thursday on FOX, and we’ve got a few clips from the pilot! Is anyone excited about this one? I usually love mysteries in general and Nordic mysteries in particular, but I am just . . . not feeling this. At all. I get that the character is supposed to be unlikeable, and that’s fine, but if that’s the case the audience needs another reason to get invested, and I’m not seeing that so far. (And the various offensive jokes just in these few clips don’t help.) Maybe it will be better as a whole? Maybe?
I See the Everyone in Everyone:
Any Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell fans out there? We’ve got the first clip from the upcoming BBC miniseries, and it looks interesting, but I don’t know enough about the book to know whether it looks right. It feels like it would make a good winter read, though.
CBS has shared a preview and three sneak peeks for tonight’s new episode of Elementary, “Bella.” And . . . wow. That is one creepy doll thing. But Clyde is back! And has a complicated custody arrangement!
Ready for a new episode of Sleepy Hollow tonight? Fox has released two clips from the hour, entitled “Mama.” Sounds like it’s time to learn some more about Abbie and Jenny’s mother . . .
“Do What It Takes:”
“We Do This Together:”
Ooh, this is a fun, tense sneak peek of Friday’s new episode of Haven, “Reflections.” Dwight finally tells Dr. Cross about the Troubles . . . by demonstrating on himself. The episode airs Friday at 7/6c on Syfy.
Here’s a clip from tonight’s new episode of Sleepy Hollow, “Heartless”! Looks like there’s a succubus in town . . .
Eee, we’ve got our first real look at a scene from Agent Carter, featuring Hayley Atwell, Dominic Cooper, and James D’Arcy. I am pretty much beside myself with excitement about this one. The show premieres in January on ABC.
Here’s a clip from tonight’s new episode of Haven, “Exposure.” Looks like Nathan is trying to get back in touch with his fellow “ghosts.” The walking-through-walls effect is pretty nifty, at least. Haven airs on Syfy tonight at 7/6c.
Anyone else excited about the conclusion of Death Comes to Pemberley on PBS this Sunday? Can’t wait! Confession: I read and really liked the book, but I don’t remember off the top of my head what the solution to the murder wound up being and I haven’t gone back to look. I’m guessing I’ll remember partway through, as clues start to stack up, but for now it’s fun treating it like a mystery I haven’t seen/read before! Here’s the preview for the second half:
And a clip from what seems to be the inquest in the second episode:
Happy Thursday! Here’s a clip from tonight’s new episode of Bones, “The Corpse in the Convention.” Dear Brennan, don’t listen to Booth. I laughed out loud at your joke. Use it.
