4 New Mid-season Shows You Should Be Watching

Almost all of the mid-seasons shows has been aired and we can now all tell the stand outs from those who are going to get the ax of cancellation. There are a lot of new TV shows for the mid-season to check out from the LOST writer J.J. Abrams to a remake of a 90’s hit Tarantino movie.

If you don’t know which mid-season to watch first this 2014, let this top 4 be your guide:

4. Believe – A new Sci-fi show produced by LOST creator J.J. Abrams featuring the story of a young girl with supernatural gifts and her protector, a man recently escaped from prison and death row.

Why you should watch it: J.J. Abrams. Enough said? Actually, not, since some of his previous TV projects received lukewarm reception. Believe is from different the current roster of 2014 mid-season TV shows for it is the only show which combines family drama, secret agents and supernatural powers.

3. Klondike – A man versus nature story based on real life events. Klondike is based on the best selling book which chronicles the lives of two friends who journeyed to the harsh and freezing lands of Klondike to find their fortune during the gold rush era.

Why you should watch it: Klondike is the first scripted show from Discovery Channel and it stars Richard Madden of Game of Thrones. Yes. The King of the North lives. Klondike is a 3 part mini-series so you can watch the gritty series in it’s entirety in one sitting.

2. The 100 – Planet Earth’s civilization has been destroyed by a nuclear war and no longer habitable so humanity lived in the space. After 97 years, 100 juvenile delinquents were sent back to earth to determine the possibility of re-populating back their former home.

Why you should watch it: You should watch The 100 for this may be the best TV show to be aired in the teen oriented station, maybe next to Buffy. The 100 features teen criminals sent back to Earth so that means no parental guidance. You do the math.

1. Intelligence – The cyber-themed show chronicles a man with a chip installed in his head and can tap to any information grid including the internet and communication lines. Of course, he works with the government which makes it more fun.

Why you should watch it: It’s been done before, remember Jack 2.0 and Chuck? This one is different though. I like the idea where Gabriel, played by LOST’s Josh Holloway can render and re-create events from his mind which makes it live a mesh of CSI and Person of Interest. Intelligence is also one of the most watched shows right now in the US.

Runner Up:

From Dusk Till Down – The TV adaptation of the popular George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino movie. Although the pilot is a little bit lackluster, we could expect more from the following episodes and also, it just premiered last week so you can still catch up.

Why you should watch it: Vampires, guns, beautiful women and mexico!

Don’t put too much salt in your popcorn and diet soda is not healthy!

  1. Thank you for this list! Now that Walking Dead is nearing its end…it’s about time to search for some interesting shows. Glad I visited your blog.

  2. Curiosity got the better of me. I wanted to see the shows you recommend.

    I’ve seen the previews on Believe but I’m always busy with something to pay full attention, but you got mine, I just might go check it out. And well, what do you know, Robb Stark’s got himself a new series, good for him. Perhaps that would be worth checking out as well. 🙂

    I’ve watched the original Quentin Tarantino flick, I’m not sure I want to watch a TV series version though…..

    Thanks for your list. Quite interesting!
