Many moons ago I felt challenged to make a list of "good" modern horror movies. For the sake of simplicity I limited that mostly to films made since 2002, IIRC. You can view this and the resulting discussion by clicking #jezhorrorlist

After a discussion with Chris where he mentioned he could only think of 5 "good" horror movies from the 90s I felt challenged to make a new list. This time, of 90s films.  The 90's is pretty widely considered a wasteland of good horror, but I don't think that's entirely true. I just think that the ratio of good to bad is very heavily skewed towards bad. To my shock I came up with exactly 100. Admittedly, some of them are "guilty pleasures" and not good on any critical level, but ones I enjoyed nonetheless. A couple I included that I don't enjoy but are generally considered to be good. The List, for your perusal. At the end I'll separate out the ones that would probably be considered objectively good. Or at least widely regarded as good within the community.

I was relatively conservative with my estimation of what most people would be considered "good" as that's a pretty personal opinion. I think most genre fans (if not necessarily critics) would agree with me. Probably even including Chris! Even with this in mind I came up with over 40 "good" ones! Even if I'm only half right that's a large jump from just 5! Basically I have too much time on my hands (t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-too much time on my hands)

Fox – you are the original We Cancel What You Love station. Even though NBC has stolen that crown from you, I am still skittish about any new shows you put out.

Renewals

American Dad
Bob’s Burgers
Bones
Family Guy
The Following (ayfkm???)
Glee (sigh)
The Mindy Project
New Girl (Woo!)
The Simpsons
Raising Hope




Really? Okay, whatever. Sure

Enlisted - 3 brothers that are all very different live and work together on an Army base! I bet they don’t get along really well!!! LOLOLOLOL

Us & Them - based on a UK series. Two people fall in love before meeting and are in a LDR.

Rake Greg Kinnear is a lawyer WHO IS OFF THE RAILS OMG OUT OF CONTROL. Shut up.

Wayward Pines - M. Nigh Shymalan was given a tv show with Matt Dillion who is a secret service agent and goes to Idaho to find lost FBI agents.

Oh goddamnit Okay, I’ll watch

Dads - Seth MacFarlane ep’s (meeeeeh). Two guys in their 30s (Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi!!!!!) have their lives flipped turned upside down when their crazy dads move in!!! Sounds terrible but. Will watch.

Surviving Jack The good: Bill Lawrence (Scrubs) the bad: written by the guy that wrote the horrible tv show Shit my dads says. The Meh: The twitter feed was funny and Justin’s writing is pretty good. The OMG – Christopher Meloni!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brooklyn Nine-Nine - Comedy starring Andy Samberg, Chelsea Peretti, Andre Braugher and others about a far away police station. Hmmm.

Gang Related A gang member is sent to infiltrate the SFPD. But what side is he really on??? Terry O’Quinn, RZA, Jay Hernandez

Sleepy Hollow - set in modern day but Ichabod is a detective?? Questionable. Stars John Chu who is super cute.

Almost Human - LA based buddy cop show WITH ROBOTS. Karl Urban stars. EP is JJ Abrams. Cautiously hopeful?

WTF 24 IS RETURNING FOR 13 MORE EPISODES GOT HOS IN ALL THE AREA CODES WHAAAAAAT

Gang Related: Official Trailer | GANG RELATED | FOX BROADCASTING This seems like it would be pretty good and I love Terry O'Quinn. I don't know if I will watch it or not though. 

Surviving Jack: Official Trailer | SURVIVING JACK | FOX BROADCASTING - Okay, I'm totally going to watch this but I doubt it will last more than a season. 90s nostaglia ftw also I love Meloni.

CBS UPFRONTS (more like only old people watch this station amiright??? HAHAHA LAUGH ALL THE WAY TO BANK NUMBER ONE RATED STATION ALL THE TIME HAHAHA JOKE ABOUT JAG)

Can you tell I don’t really like CBS? Well, anyway here’s what’s happenin’ with these losers.

Renewals:

2 Broke Girls
Big Bang Theory
Blue Bloods (wtf is this even)
Criminal Minds
CSI
Elementary
The Good Wife
Hawaii 5-0
How I Met Your Mother
The Mentalist
Mike & Molly
NCIS:
NCIS: LA
Person Of Interest
Two and a Half Men

This list isn’t final, CBS is still undecided on some pilots so there might be more stuff to not look forward to.

That really sweet but not very bright girl you work with will love these, also dude bros:

Mom - newly sober single Mom (Anna Farris) tries to pull her life together. Awesome! Good for you! I learned it from watching you, Mom!

We are Men - are you kidding me with this. A young man learns how to be Awesome and Wise and Manly from the older men that live in his complex. Tony Shalhoub (you are better than this), Jerry O’Connell (you aren’t) and Kal Penn (you are cute) star.

Intelligence - They finally give Sawyer from Lost another tv show and this is it? Something something US Cyber Command, guy with a chip in his head can access the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Destined to make Hackers seem like a documentary.

Friends with Better Lives 30 something group of friends that all think everyone else has it better. Multi cam but stars James Van Der Beek so…. Hmm.

Reckless - Set in South Carolina it’s about two lawyers that are opposed and yet attracted to each other!!! Sex Scandals!!! Don’t recognize the names.

Okay, fine. I’ll give these a shot

The Millers Greg Garcia (writer, executive producer) stars Will Arnett, Margo Martindale, JB Smooth, Michael Rapport.

Amazing cast + Greg Garcia + Will Arnett = seriously do you expect this to last? Description is vague but a divorced guy has parents that also have marital problems.

Crazy Ones - David E Kelley teams up with Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar. An advertising exec works with his daughter and I bet that causes some friction!!!

Hostages - EP’d by Bruckheimer, Toni Collete is a DC surgeon picked to operate on the POTUS. Conspiracy??? Hostages??? How can this last more than a season??? Tate Donovan and Dylan Mchandsome, I mean McDermott also star.

I bounced off Elementary initially, but eventually gave it another shot and found it had improved enough to be something I'll keep up with probably. I wasn't worried about its future exactly, but at the same time it seems like an odd fit to me for CBS and afaik hasn't been a ratings smash. But then unlike some of the other networks (NBC in particular), CBS has gobs of money and can afford to stick with shows they believe in but which haven't been setting the ratings world on fire. The benefits of having a bunch of hits!

As promised elsewhere, here are the new and returning shows from the upfronts. (more like upchucks amiright??)

Just NBC for now because I have work to do. The rest of the networks later!

NBC

Returning Shows:
Chicago Fire
Community
Grimm
L&O: SVU
Parenthood
Parks & Rec
Revolution

(Note: Hannibal is not on the list BECAUSE THEY HAVEN’T EFFING DECIDED YET.)

New Shows that will only last a season so why bother:

The Blacklist – Some criminal guy that’s really famous offers to turn himself and all his cohorts in but ONLY if he can work with some newbie FBI person that is all lolwtf I don’t know this guy. Stars James Spader. I like him so I might give this a shot.

Ironside - reboot of a show from the 60s of the same not. Not about Michael Ironside. Disappointing. Detective Drama about a detective that ends up in a wheelchair but probably still kicks ass and takes names? Unsure of goodness. Don’t recognize any of the names.

Welcome to the Family - single cam dramedy about a white family and a latino family. High school aged White daughter and Latino son make a baby together and shenanigans. This could be pretty decent or super racist. I might give it a shot. Stars Mike O’Malley and others

Sean Saves the World - multi camera (barf) comedy about a single (gay) dad raising a 14 year old daughter. I might give this a watch because that basically describes my upbringing minus the gayness. Stars Sean Hayes. I expect a lot of “lady business is grosssssssss” but who knows

About a Boy – Single camera comedy that’s the same premise as the movie, basically. Man-child moves in next to a single mom. Hilarity ensues. Stars Minnie Driver, Al Madrigal, other people

American Dream Builders - Home improvement show or something I don’t care.

Crisis - Set in DC, follows a Secret Service agent that gets into some crazy business on his first day. Mysteries. Intrigue. Conspiracy! Stars Dermon Mulroney.

Undateable - multi cam comedy about loser friends that meet a guy that isn’t a total loser. Sounds unspeakably bad. I don’t recognize any of the names.

This might actually has a chance because it would be cruel to cancel a show about a guy with Parkinsons and America loves MJF:

The Michael J Fox Show - this is basically one of those based on true life events but not completely autobiographical type of shows. I am super looking forward to this. I think it got picked up right away for multiple seasons, but I might be hallucinating that/wishful thinking.

I might actually watch this:

Dracula This is a 10 episode series so no worries on it being canned. This will be paired with Grimm on Fridays. Yes, they are moving Grimm back to Fridays. Stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Chicago PD - spinoff of Chicago Fire, a show I don’t watch. I like Chicago so I’ll watch.

Believe - Um. Okay. What. Directed by ALFONSO CUARON. Executive Produced by JJ ABRAMS. About a girl with special powers and an ex con sent to protect her. This will probably be really good and last a season if we are lucky. Starring people I don’t immediately recognize by name.

Crossbones - JOHN MALKOVICH STARS AS BLACKBEARD THE PIRATE WTF TAKE MY MONEY AND TAKE IT NOW. Created by the dude that created Luther which I’ve heard is wtf good.

Night Shift - Army docs return to work at a hospital in San Antonio. I predict cowboy hats GLAORE. Stars Freddy Rodriguez and other people. Will probably watch for that reason + texasness.

Family Guide Single Camera sitcom about a blind dad and his family and there’s a divorce or something? Stars JK Simmons??? That is a fact but one that I’m confused about because lol what. Parker Posey was going to be involved, but backed out. Her replacement hasn’t been announced as far as I know.

I watch Revolution because I want them to get to the damn tower. I knew it was bad after a few episodes when, regarding the character they were trying to save, 'just die or hurry up and get saved'. I didn't care about the result.

I want to think its one of those shows where they have a real story to tell, but they're mucking about too much with the setup. I'm probably wrong.

Also, engines don't require electricity. They work with combustion. Flint to light a fire and explosives shouldn't work. Their altered physics don't work, SAYS THE BUSINESS MAJOR.

I'll get pissed and quit eventually, show's infuriating nature reminds me of Lost.

Moving on to ABC (more like Already Been Canceled amiright?? Just kidding that’s NBC.)

ABC upfronts haven’t aired yet (will tomorrow) so some of this might change. Probably not, though.

Renewed

Castle
Grey’s Anatomy (seriously?)
Last Man Standing
The Middle
Modern Family
Nashville
The Neighbors
Once Upon a Time
Revenge (meeeeeeeeeeeeh)
Scandal
Suburgatory

Are you serious with this?

The Goldbergs – Family comedy set in the 80s. Probably terrible. “Inspired by” the creators upbringing. Starring a bunch of ???

Mixology –wtf are you serious, okay. NYC singles in search of love in a bar. I don’t know any of these names.

Untitled Cullen Bros - Was originally She’s got balls and then Safe at Home. Divorced single mom moves in with her estranged baseball star father. I’m yawning just writing this. Stars James Caan and Maggie Lawson.

Betrayal - this is basically another show about secrets and revenge or whatever I don’t care. It might be good because it’ stars James Cromwell but it seems like a total retread. Based on a Dutch series. A lady has an affair with a defense attorney that is defending a client her husband is prosecuting!!! Omg

Influence this is an odd couple drama about a Psychologist and his brother ex con!!! Oh my! Christian Slater and Steve Zahn. Hope you like the one season this will get. Same guy responsible for Awake is behind this. I will probably watch later IF it gets a second season.

Killer Women a sassy female Texas Ranger!!! In 2013???? Oh boy I bet she ruffles some feathers.

Once upon a time in Wonderland -spinoff of Once Upon a Time. Not sure if miniseries or what though.

I will watch probably

Super Fun Night - I’m listening! 3 nerdy ladies and their adventures. Rebel Wilson stars, Conan O’Brien executive produces.

Trophy Wife - former skank ho meets a man with 3 kids and two ex wives. Stars Malin Akerman, Bradley Whitford (crap! I have to watch this now!), Marcia Gay Harden

Lucky 7 - much like American Horror Story this will change each season. The core idea is 7 employees win the lottery. Each episode focuses on one person (and I guess there are other episodes or else it’s a super short series??)

The Returned - Dead people in a town come back to life but not as zombies as if they had never died. Omar Epps is in this so cool cool cool.

SHIELD - not using the periods between each letter because that’s super dumb. You know what this is, some nerdy marvel stuff.

+Ashley Gandy If this bird took a kitty, would only be a very small payback against the number of birds each year killed by domesticated cats, which kill between 1.4 and 3.7 Billion birds a year in the US.
