Next Week in TV 10/8: DC Heroes return in force

By Mario Wario, DRWHO42, & Alyssa

Oh boy, this week is going to be fantastic! Even with New York Comic Con happening right now and the blog team busy covering this event, no way we would forget the world of television. So, have those DVRs ready, because you are going to need it.

For instance, over at The CW, we have the return of Supergirl, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, Riverdale, and Supernatural. (Yay!) Plus, we can’t forget about Crazy Ex-girlfriend and Jane the Virgin, as they are coming back as well. Meanwhile, staying with the network, a new series called Valor (starring Christina Ochoa) is making its debut. Now, will it be able to compete with the other new military shows going on right now? That is the question and we shall find out very soon. Going to Amazon, if you want something spooky, how about checking out the new series called Lore.

Want some robot action? How about getting ready for the fourth season of Voltron: Legendary Defender on Netflix! Will these new episodes be fun to watch on a lazy afternoon? We think it will. Speaking of ‘robots’, USA’s Mr. Robot will try to hack the planet once more as it returns for it highly anticipated third season. Checking in on Cartoon Network/ADULT SWIM, The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special looks like it is going to be a treat to watch. Good thing to have with Halloween almost here. Fan favorite Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency on BBC America. Moving away from that theme, The Shannara Chronicles – which has changed networks to Spike TV – will be coming back for a second time. We had the privileged of interviewing the cast and producers this week and have major hints, no spoilers though, for the amazing looking season two. Keep an eye out for an article shortly.

Finally, The Last Ship (TNT), Mr. Mercedes (Audience), Dice (Showtime), and Room 104 (HBO), all four will be are having their season finales this week. But Episodes will be coming to an end with its series finale on Showtime. But as always, there are too many to point out, so please do look at the list down below and our picks as well.

THE CW Valor: Pilot [Series Premiere]

Valor “This is a female-driven military drama, which sets it apart,” said Valor EP Anna Fricke. Valor isn’t all about the missions but the characters, and in the case of this CW series, there’s a soapy element to it. The series comes at a pivotal time when, according to Fricke, “female pilots are being taken into a combat position.”
“Most of the time there are rules to follow (in the military) and they have to be buttoned up. Nora (Christina Ochoa’s lead character) and her boyfriend can’t touch each other on base. So we get to see how these people fall apart when they’re at home versus at work,” Fricke said. Deadline link Click for more information

From inciting treason to telling poop jokes, Sarah Silverman has created her fair share of online chatter. With I Love You, America, she’s looking to connect with people who may not agree with her personal opinions through honesty, humor, genuine interest in others, and not taking herself too seriously. While it’s great to connect with like-minded people, Silverman feels it’s crucial, now more than ever, to connect with the un-like-minded.
