    I have been pleasantly surprised by The Big Bang Theory so far and the latest episode was fantastic. I found the Scandal premiere the most disappointing but it really picked up this week thankfully. I have strong fears AHS will be my biggest disappointment when it premieres.

    Most IMPROVED:
    – Nashville: I don’t know what happened, but these first two episodes have really changed the tone of this show for the better. They have refreshed the storylines and I think there is a lot more potential with the Highway 65 trouble and for Layla to have a second chance career.

    – How To Get Away With Murder: I wasn’t sure how they would keep the show’s theme going another season, but what the story is leading up to is so interesting. Also throwing in Jean Grey wasn’t a bad thing either.

    – Survivor: loving the concept behind this season and the players are great.

    Most DISAPPOINTING:
    – Empire: too much going on

    Most Improved: Empire – I love that they’ve slowed down this season. Most disappointing: How To Get Away With Murder – not feeling it.. Everything feels repetitive and I find myself only caring for Connor’s storyline.

    I had decided not to continue watching after last season, is it worth picking up again?

    I think HTGAWM is so much more coherent this time around. I remember I was completely lost and confused during the first half of the first season due to all of the flashbacks that have no context. Now that I know what’s happening, I love the concept, but without any context in the first season-it was impossible to follow and understand.

    It’s from the summer but I had to jump ship from Married. I held on because I adore Judy Greer and she’s the best part of the show but the show just isn’t doing anything for me. 
    Also I haven’t finished but this season of Ray Donavan was quite boring
    The Strain was a tad better than Season 1
    None of the Fall shows yet have upset me or made me enjoy them more than I already did but there is still more to come

    Disappointed: The Middle

    Funny, I’m having the exact opposite reaction so far. I think Sue going to college has reinvigorated the series after a lackluster season last year.

    So far How to Get Away with Murder has been pretty awesome. To me it still feels a like camp version of Damages, but the characters seem deeper, new murder storyline looks more promising that “Who killed Lyla?” arc, and they have added Jean Grey&Analise romance. I have a feeling though, that it is going to end up being twists for the sake of having twists. 

    As for the dissappointments, I have to say Masters of Sex.( I know it has started in July) Season three was a mess! Watching it has become sort of a routine by the end.  

    Also, I am kind of scared that “The Good Wife” is going to become a huge disappointment as well.

    Almost everybody on here has said it already. The first couple of episodes of How to Get Away with Murder have been great and it just makes me want to see more!

    I completely agree with you about last season and I feel like this season thus far is more of the same. The Sue in college stuff is falling flat for me. Don’t get me wrong, it has its moments (the poster on the wall and her reaction lol) but I’m still going to give this season a shot until I just get entirely bored by the show.

    IMPROVED: Is it bad that I’m not floored by anything returning from the summer or fall yet?
    DISAPPOINTED: True Detective, Masters of Sex, Orange is the New Black
