Forever

Imagine what it would be like to be granted everlasting life, to witness the rise and fall of kings and queens, and see the inauguration of various presidents.  What if someone had the opportunity to save lives, solve murders and become a world-renowned doctor in the process; these are a few things Dr. Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd) experiences.  ABC’s new Fall show Forever, chronicles the life of Dr. Morgan as he solves murder after murder, while also trying to discover what gave him the gift of immortality for over 200 years. As his friendship with his new detective partner Jo Martinez (Alana De La Garza) grows, pieces of his past are revealed, and viewers learn bit by bit what led Dr. Morgan to become one of New York’s top medical examiners. Forever runs on Tuesdays at 10:00 p.m. on ABC.

Red Band Society

Fox’s new show Red Band Society follows the lives of a group of friends, Leo Roth (Charlie Rowe), Dash  Hosney (Astro), Jordi Palacios (Nolan Sotillo), Emma Chota (Ciara Bravo), and Kara Souders ( Zoe Levin), who experience the ups and downs that come with being a teen while living in Los Angeles’s Ocean Park Hospital. Each friend has a condition that places him or her in the hospital. Leo has cancer, Jordi has osteosarcoma in his leg, Emma has bulimia and Dash has cystic fibrosis. The show is displayed in an unusual perspective.  It is narrated by 12-year-old coma patient Charlie (Griffin Gluck). He introduces the group of friends and lets the audience know that although he is in a coma, he can hear everything that goes on around him. Octavia Spencer portrays Nurse Jackson who is a caregiver to the teens. She tries to help them live as normal of a life as they can. Although these teens live in a hospital, they still struggle with the normal teenage problems, such as first dates, bullying, and the pressure to fit in. This coming-of-age drama promises to engage viewers and warm their hearts through the stories of its characters. It runs on Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. on Fox network.

Gotham

Fans of DC Comics’s Batman story will love the action, suspense, heartbreak, and romance that are a part of Fox’s new show Gotham. Everyone knows the original story of how batman came to be; the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents pushes him to create his alter ego that would transfigure into “Batman” as he ages. Batman is known for fighting for the sake of justice and putting criminals behind, but this is just half of the story. The years leading up to the creation of Batman are all but unknown to those that are not DC Comic fans. Gotham, however, tells the story of a young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), who becomes the sole heir to the Wayne fortune after the untimely death of his parents. With only his faithful butler Alfred to raise him, Bruce forms an unlikely friendship with the young detective Gordon (Ben McKenzie). He will play a key role in helping Bruce become one of the world’s most famous masked heroes. Viewers will also learn about the beginnings of some of Gotham’s most famous criminals, including how the brilliant forensic scientist, Edward Nygma, became The Joker. Fox’s Gotham runs on Mondays at 8:00 p.m.
