What's your favorite season (of television)?

I love autumn. The leaves fall to the ground and die and that reminds of my favorite BBC characters.

Yes, it's that time of the year again. Despite lacking a TV, I've been watching a few shows, just to see how they go.

Legend of Korra (Nickelodeon)
Season two is receiving mixed reviews online, mostly due to romantic entanglements. I really enjoyed the previous show Avatar: The Last Airbender, but if twelve to sixteen-year-olds can win a 100-yr-long war with minimal adult support, older teens should be able to cope with civil unrest, especially with the mentor figures they have. Tenzin and his children are cute, but my problems with Korra really go back to her first words onscreen
 (after she Earthbends  a wall across the room and bending three elements at once.) 
I'm the Avatar. You gotta DEAL WITH IT!
Yeah, I'm not exactly a fan of that kind of attitude.

Agents of Shield (ABC)
 It's a sequel to the Avengers. With Agent Coulson. Enough said.

Once Upon a Time (ABC)
I quit season two after "Lacey," and a lot of the concerns I had are still there. But I'm willing to give it another try. The new villain has potential, though I hope all the family bickering comes to an end.

Waiting for:

Sherlock (BBC on PBS)
No air date known yet.

Wizards vs Aliens  (CBBC)
A spiritual successor to The Sarah Jane Adventures, this show struggled to find its feet, but there were some good characters and funny moments, so I have high hopes for season two.

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (ABC)
Maybe the spinoff format will help keep the sprawling characters in check.

Watching on DVD

Warehouse 13
Kinda cool, acknowledges that people exist between California and DC.

Dresden Files
Didn't even finish one episode. Sorry, creepy monsters just work better as a book. The skinwalker just reminded me of the Slitheen.
