I like Kristen Bell, so I watched and enjoyed The Good Place on Hulu.  It's light fare, but decent fun.

Nope. The time travel show piqued my interest until the Globe's reviewer said:

“Timeless” (NBC)

(Time-travel action drama, Oct. 3)

Starring: Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Goran Visnjic

Concept: A historian, a scientist, and a soldier must hopscotch through time to catch a criminal bent on altering history. Can they save the world as we know it?

Am I hooked? Mr. Wiiiizzzaaarrrd! I’m hooked on the idea of not having to watch this amateurish effort to summon the ghosts of “Quantum Leap” and “Time Tunnel.” The rules of time travel and changing history are doomed. The efforts to point out the racism of earlier times are flat.

Alternate title: “Time Mess”

Grade: D

I might give it a chance anyway. My link has similar encapsulations of all the fall shows. Nothing there motivated me to give my DVR new marching orders.

Nothing looks interesting to me either new shows or returning ones.  Just burnt out on TV I guess, I'd ditch it if the wife would allow it and how would rittchard afford a new iPhone if I left DirecTV?

Modes spelled out:

Maps spelled out:

All sounds great but my beta echoes will be getting shot in the face by circle-strafing bunny hoppers and shot in the face by snipers 1,000 yards away I can't even see, people running in random directions from spawn points trying desperately not to get slaughtered etc. etc. etc. I'm unconvinced anyone actually wants to play BF1 as a tight knit team or squad. Why should they when they can just snipe and bunny hop and run people over and spam grenades etc.? I guess it was the same when BF1942 came out way back when. Maybe a bit late to complain about humanity now.  icon_razz

So here we are with another new season of glorious TV.  Admittedly things are much different from the way they were in the past given the emphasis on cable channels and streaming.  Hopefully the big networks still have a few good things up their sleeves. 

The one new (network) show I'm most looking forward to is Designated Survivor.  I would have watched it just for the concept, or just for Kiefer, but I just found out Maggie Q is in it too!  Jack Bauer AND Nikita?!?!?  Count me in!  I do realize they are going to try to neuter Kiefer but I can always hope.  But even the premise seems like it could be a lot of fun.  I guess some of the ground might have been covered in The Last Ship but I'm expecting a lot more from this show.

Other than that, the only show I am considering is Conviction.  Not really sure I need a generic crime show, but the cast has Hayley Atwell, Emily Kinney, Eddie Cahill and Shawn Ashmore, so I will give it a chance.

I know there are some time travel shows (Timeless?) and various sci-fi/horror series (Exorcist, Van Helsing) which I will probably give a chance to as well, but I'm not too thrilled about any of them in particular.

Anyone else keeping an eye on the new season?

They have released the minimum and recommended specs.  Which are kind of surprising, since the Minimum is below what I have and the beta still ran like absolute garbage on my machine with everything turned to Low.  

OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
Processor: AMD FX-6350 or Intel Core i5 6600K
Memory: 8GB RAM
Graphics card: AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB or Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB
DirectX: 11.0 Compatible video card or equivalent

OS: 64-bit Windows 10 or later
Processor: AMD FX 8350 Wraith or Intel Core i7 4790 or equivalent
Memory: 16GB RAM
Graphics card: AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB
DirectX: 11.1 Compatible video card or equivalent

Both minimum and recommended configurations will require 50GB of hard drive space and a 512 KBPS or faster Internet connection.

Oh, and in case you're curious what they learned from the beta that is a short write-up.  Shockingly, they learned that Conquest would be better with the way it always has been.   Roll Eyes

I do have a question. For those familiar with the recent Forza and Forza Horizon games on Xbox One, how bad (or not bad?) would it be running on a 720p 26-inch TV? Would I hate myself? Would I eventually be coughing up more bucks for a better TV?

I don't think you would hate yourself.  I'm sure it would look fine on there, and still have all the fun.  It may not be the absolute most impressive at that size and resolution, but it's not like a step back into SD.  Plus it's a driving game, not a text-heavy adventure game.

Thanks for the answer. I see good reviews for this and the latest Forza Motorsport, so maybe Santa will be bringing me an Xbone icon_biggrin.

£8 extra for getting on Pc and Xbox1 v Xbox only is a no brainer for me.

Plus the loss of the ability to resell it. For a $12 difference I would probably go digital. It's closer to $32 in my mind. I rarely go back to a game when I've decided I am done with it.

My kids would never let me trade it in  icon_lol
