Summer series like Outlander and Under the Dome are nearing their end, meaning it’s time to find something else to populate your DVR queue. Thankfully there’s plenty to chose from this week, so you should be able to find plenty of excuses to vegetate in front of your TV screen, regardless of your tastes.
Craving some comic-book action on the small screen? You’ve got Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returning to ABC and hopefully not squandering the goodwill it earned at the end of an uneven first season. More of a DC kind of person? Don’t worry, you won’t have to wait for the premieres of Arrow and Flash to get your fix. You can check out a pre-Batman Gotham in, well, Gotham. The pilot isn’t bad, but it seems like a concept that doesn’t have the legs to sustain itself in the long run. We shall see.
Fox’s Sleepy Hollow was a surprise hit last season, and while it isn’t science fiction, it does involve time travel, and it’s had our goodwill ever since that scene where Ichabod consoles an Onstar operator. If you prefer artificial intelligence to headless horsemen, CBS’ Person of Interest has improved hugely since its first season, and it’s back for another round Tuesday night.
