What now?

Now that Battlestar Galactica has released us from her amazing grips, how can we get our TV fix? A few recommendations for easing the withdrawal:

Dollhouse


dollhouseJoss Whedon's latest creation has been put back in the claws of the Fox network. Echo is just one of the playthings in The Dollhouse, a secret illegal facility where human slaves are programmed to fulfill the fantasies, needs, and whims of the rich and powerful. But something is wrong with Echo. She is remembering flashes of the lives that she has lived and the games she has played.

Caprica


caprica3The next series in the BSG universe, Caprica is set 51 years prior to the events of Battlestar Galactica (2003), this prequel will explore the lives of two families: the Graystones - include father Daniel, a computer genius, mother Amanda, a brilliant surgeon and their daughter, Zoe - and the Adamas.

However, Richard has grown weary of it all, leading him to kill of the legendary character who has been the basis of the millions of books he has sold. When a copycat murderer begins to kill people in manners and scenes straight out of his novels, NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) goes to Richard for help. But their personalities don't mesh -- Richard's fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants detective style greatly clashes with Beckett's more conservative and methodical approach to the crimes, but the new life that Richard Castle has begun couldn't have been scripted better himself.

The Beast


thebeastA&E Network will premiere the original scripted drama series, “The Beast” on January 15th at 10PM ET/PT. “The Beast,” starring Patrick Swayze and Travis Fimmel, centers on an unorthodox but effective FBI veteran, Charles Barker (Swayze), who takes on a rookie partner, Ellis Dove (Fimmel), to train in his hard-edged and psychologically clever style of agenting. Soon, though, Ellis is contacted by other FBI agents to investigate his partner for turning and Ellis has to decide whether Barker has turned to a double agent.

The Listener


the-listenerIn this one-hour drama, Toby Logan (Craig Olejnik, The Runaway) is a 24-year-old paramedic living with a secret: he can read people's minds. This telepathic procedural takes viewers into the heart of a tortured hero who struggles to solve crimes with his unique gift. Week-to-week, The Listener balances high-stakes drama with irreverent humor and sends Toby on an intellectual and emotional adventure. Ennis Esmer (The Path to 9/11) also stars. This series has gotten off to a slow start, but shows promise.
