Upcoming TV Shows To Look Out For

Scream Queens (Fox)

This is about a collage campus that is disrupted by a series of violent murders. It created by the same force behind Fox hit Glee. It stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Emma Robers, Keke Palmer, Nick Jonas and many more. Expected debut is fall 2015.

The Devil You Know (HBO)
IMDB describes this as ‘A drama set in 17th century New Englad during the infamous Salem Witch Trials’. This sounds amazing, and with a cast that includes Karen Gillan, Damien Molony, Eddie Izzard and Julian Rhind- Tutt this should be a sure fire hit.

Supergirl (CBS)

This is obviously about the cousin of the Man of Steel, Supergirl. She will be played by Glee alum Melissa Benoist. Expected debut is fall 2015.

Studio City (Fox)
This is a drama about a wannabe singer who discovers that her father is a ‘drug dealer to the stars’. It stars Heather Graham, Eric McCormack, Riley Smith and British newcomer Florence Pugh. Can this follow the musical success Fox has had with Empire? I certainly hope so.

Fear The Walking Dead (AMC)
I’m probably one of the few people in the world who doesn’t watch The Walking Dead and that is because I’m far too lazy to catch up on all that I’ve missed, so I’m going to make sure that I watch its spin-off right from the get-go so I don’t get left behind again. It has already been given a season 1 and 2 renewal. It stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey, with a few other roles either yet to be cast, or simply unannounced.

Ballers (HBO)

It stars The Rock. Need I say more? Probably not, but I will anyway. Judging by the trailer, it looks like this series is about (American) footballers and the agents and families. This will premiere on HBO on June 21st.

Flash/Arrow Spin-off (CW)

Not even the title of this show is known yet; how secretive! The show will obviously include Flash and Arrow, as well as some other recognizable faces as shown above. Curiously the original Black Canary, Sara Lance (played by Caity Lotz) is in this series, which is awfully odd considering the fact that she was killed in Arrow’s season 3 premiere. The show will also introduce the audience to new superheroes like Hawkgirl.

WILDCARD: Rocky Horror Picture Show (Fox)
News broke recently that Fox was planning on making a 2 hours TV movie based on the 1975 film which has now become a cult classic. I put this as a wildcard because 1) it doesn’t really count as a TV show, and 2) If they cast it wrong all my interest is gone. Get this right Fox and you’ve done a miracle.

Btw, I feel like I should mention that I don’t own the pictures used above- they were all sourced from the Internet.

My Pointless Week Round-Up

You’d think a week without school and with sunny weather would be relaxing; think again. I’ve done very little in this past week that was overwhelmingly interesting and now you get to hear all about it (aren’t you lucky!)

A-Level revision is now officially in full swing, which means fun is on a temporary hiatus until the end of June. I spend hours a day at a table writing and rewriting notes, doing exam practice. I try to think it’ll all be worth it in the long run, all this boredom and suffering will lead me on a path to my dream job; which is extra hard to believe because I myself have absolutely no idea what that dream job is. When I was a kid I was absolutely certain that I would become a chef and I felt that way up until a few years ago when I went off that idea completely. Since then I’ve been completely lost trying to figure out what the hell I want to do with my time on earth. I considered film directing (and I am still interested in it) but it just felt like an impossible dream to achieve. So, again, back to square one. I just realised that I went waaaaaaaaaaay off topic there, but hey I’m allowed to because this is my blog, not my damn English A-Level!

I’ve decided with probably 85% certainly that I’ll be taking a gap year after year 13, but more on that in a later post (I’m such a tease!)

This week I’ve discovered the wonderful music of Sleeping with Sirens. They’re not normally my type of music at all, I like the generic crap that floods the charts, but the lead singer has such an awesome voice and it’s soooooo good! Listen to their cover of ‘Iris’ by The Goo Goo Dolls if you don’t believe me. Click here- you won’t regret it!

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson aka the coolest man on the planet released the trailer for his new HBO show ‘Ballers’ on his Twitter. That was pretty cool, because the show looks funny as hell. I think this’ll be my top summer show. Here’s the trailer if you’re interested. What else happened in TV? Hmmm, Kathy Bates was confirmed to return to ‘American Horror Story‘ this fall, which is awesome because she was one of the highlights of both ‘Coven‘ and ‘Freak Show’. She joins a cast that includes Lady Gaga, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer and hopefully some more of the originals like Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson.

That’s about it…

Heads Up guys!

Have you heard this song? It’s catchy as hell!
LunchMoney Lewis- Bills

That is all.

An Introduction

I know that nobody is actually going to be reading the content I post here, but I going to do it anyway; mainly because I really love the sound of my own voice- in case you’re wondering I’m English and I speak in Standard English with a reoccurring but not overtly prominent Jonathan Ross style lisp on my ‘r’ sounds.

Anyway, I called this blog ‘mattsdullramblings’ simply because I’m literally going to use this to write about things that interest me. That could range from comic books to politics; movies to moaning about the stress of A-Levels. Whatever takes my fancy I’ll right about it.

That’ll do for an introduction, I’m actually going to try and post regularly, but we both know that’s not going to happen.
