Here at New Fall TV we are usually covering the new fall TV series that are promising and will please a certain audience. We cover comedies, dramas, reality TV, and action shows equally, but what we always focus on is the new fall TV shows that look promising. We don’t pay too much attention to other seasons or to returning shows. But every so often we do want to give some information and advice to our readers about other seasons, especially given the fact that sometimes a promising new fall TV show will get pushed to a later season, or a series will be aired in a different season in order to boost some of the new fall TV series that are already on. In this post we want to review a couple of winter TV shows in 2015 that have caught our eye, and we hope you will also share your own favorites as the winter TV season unfolds.
The first new winter TV show that we are looking forward to is “Fresh Off the Boat”. Scheduled to start on Wednesday, February 4 at 8:30pm but then moving to a regular Tuesdays at 8pm slot, this new TV series is based on popular chef Eddie Huang’s memoir. A simple premise looks to lead to a lot of hilarity and some poignant moments: A Vietnamese family moves from Washington, D.C. (where they lived within a neighborhood that was a cultural match), to Florida (where the cultural match is non-existent). The family opens a restaurant. There is a wonderful diversity in the characters that play the family and some surrounding neighbors and co-workers, and critics loved the pilot. The story is told from the boy’s point of view, centering around the cultural comedy but also including some humor that is inherent in the family relationships. These characters and the plot lines have the potential to be highly memorable and could vault this new winter show into strong popularity.
