Jenny’s Thoughts: I have to admit, when I first started watching the trailer, I wasn’t at all sure I’d enjoy it. I’m not always a big fan of guys like the Ben character, who are irresponsible and just don’t seem very smart or adult. But through the end, I grew to really love it, and now I’m hopeful that it’ll be cute enough to hold my interest and not just irritate me. – Curious
Megan’s Thoughts: I was laughing so hard at this trailer. The relationship between Ben and Kate is awesome, and we all have that one family member that we love regardless of how crazy they are. This looks like a really fun, quirky new comedy. – Excited
Kyle’s Thoughts: This trailer had me laughing out loud. I like that the main characters are a brother & sister who seem to get along great. The show looks like it will be a lot of fun, with elements of a romantic comedy. – Excited

Jenny’s Thoughts: Yes yes yes. This show is right up my alley. Kevin Bacon looks SO sexy, and it’s a part thriller/part cop show that had me glued to the trailer from beginning to end. SO anxious for this one! – Excited
Megan’s Thoughts: What an amazing cast! Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy were enough to make me tune in, but the story looks thrilling, and I’ll be glued to my TV weekly, I’m sure. – Excited
Kyle’s Thoughts: Great cast! This looks like it could really be the next big serialized drama for Fox. – Excited
Link to The Goodwin Games on FOX.com.
Jenny’s Thoughts: This may be my favorite new comedy for next season. I love the cast (Scott Foley, Becki Newton, & Jake Lacy as the siblings are all fantastic) and the premise is great. I love the idea of a father trying to bring his kids back together as a family after he dies, and the Trivial Pursuit game using questions from their lives is brilliant. Plus, it’s by the guys behing How I Met Your Mother, which I love, so… – Excited
Megan’s Thoughts: This looks like one of those feel-good comedies that you walk away from feeling better because you watched. I’m looking forward to seeing them reconnect as a family and seeing what challenges they have to face to win. Scott Foley is also so adorable that I can’t help but be happy he’s back on a series. – Excited
Kyle’s Thoughts: This show looks like a great mix of comedy and heart. I really like the cast and the premise. Looks like it will be a lot of fun discovering each new game the siblings must compete in. – Excited
Link to The Mob Doctor on FOX.com.
Jenny’s Thoughts: Gah! Part thriller, part cop show, part medical drama…it all adds up to one intense and fun show. I love the cast, too, which doesn’t hurt one bit. – Excited
Megan’s Thoughts: I really like the premise and it looks intense, but I’m going to have to agree with Kyle and say that it looks more like a movie. My concern is that making it a weekly drama will take away from the intensity. Time will tell. – Curious
Kyle’s Thoughts: I could see this as a movie but not sure about a weekly series. I liked Jordana Spiro on My Boys, but I’m not sure that’s enough to make me watch this show. – Curious
Link to The Mindy Project on FOX.com.
Jenny’s Thoughts: I wasn’t sure about this at the beginning of the trailer, but by the end, I think I’m going to enjoy it a lot more than I first expected. I’m not quite excited, but I am cautiously optimistic. – Curious
Megan’s Thoughts: This is a “girls” comedy, and I loved it. There is nothing better than seeing one girl make all the classic dating mistakes that we have all made at one time or another. The fact that she’s a doctor makes it even more hilarious. – Excited
Kyle’s Thoughts: Didn’t find this trailer funny at all – it felt like a bad SNL movie. I like Mindy Kaling in small doses on The Office – not sure if I want to watch a full half-hour of her. – Most likely 1 and done
