2013 NBC Fall TV Preview: The Michael J. Fox Show, The Blacklist, & Jonathan Rhys Meyers is Dracula
First up, The Michael J. Fox Show premieres September 26th at 9pm. Fox, who has Parkinson's disease in real life, stars as a former New York City anchorman who is driving his family crazy now that he left his job to spend more time with them and to focus on his health. Luckily for them, the station wants him back. Fox's comic timing is as sharp as ever and the pilot script is witty and touching without being too sentimental. Next up is The Blacklist, which premieres September 23rd at 10pm. James Spader stars as Raymond Reddington, an ex-government agent who landed on the FBI's 10 most wanted list. But after years in hiding, Reddington gives himself up to help the Bureau catch a notorious terrorist. The action-fueled pilot is stuffed with satisfying twists and turns, and Spader gives an eerie performance that constantly keeps viewers off balance. Lastly, NBC's most anticipated new fall drama, Dracula, debuts on October 25th. Jonathan Rhys Meyers is perfectly cast in the vengeance-seeking title role, but unfortunately the script plods along and fails to quicken the pulse as any vampire-centric show should.
