This week, we’re taking a look back at the best TV Premieres so far this fall, including Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Grinder, Casual, Red Oaks, The Last Kingdom, Quantico, and Indian Summers (and also a bonus look at Supergirl). Check out the video to see where they rank, and how to get caught up on all of them!

Over 30 new shows debuted since the start of the fall TV season last month, but not all of them are Fresh — in fact, the majority of them did not fare so well with critics. And then there was Dr. Ken

Now that we’re a month into the madness, we’ve compiled a list of the best-reviewed new TV shows of the fall, including where you can see every episode right now to get on track!


Red Oaks: Season 1 (2014) 79%

What It’s About: It’s the 1980s in New Jersey and a middle-class college kid (Craig Roberts) works as an assistant tennis pro at a fancy country club owned by a rich jerk (Paul Reiser).

What Critics Think: Red Oaks offers an affectionate nod to 1980s sex comedies that — largely thanks to a talented ensemble cast — finds fresh humor in its familiar premise.

Airs: The entire first season is currently available on Amazon Prime.

Number of Episodes You’ve Missed: 10 episodes.

Where to Catch Up: Amazon Prime.

 


Quantico: Season 1 (2015) 80%

What It’s About: Priyanka Chopra is Alex Parrish, a recruit rigorously trained at the Quantico FBI base, who finds herself the top suspect in the worst terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11.

What Critics Think: Obvious copycatting aside, Quantico provides ludicrously entertaining thrills from a well-balanced cast.

Airs: Sundays on ABC at 10 p.m.

Number of Episodes You’ve Missed: Four

Where to Catch Up: ABC.com (with cable subscription), AmazonHulu, iTunes, PlayStationVudu, and Xfinity (with cable subscription).

 


Indian Summers: Season 1 (2015) 79%

What It’s About: This miniseries from Masterpiece captures the twilight era of the British Empire and the friction between the English ruling class and their Indian subjects.

What Critics Think: Indian Summers gathers intrigue slowly but effectively, building into an addictive political thriller with exotic overtones.

Airs: Sundays on PBS at 9 p.m.

Number of Episodes You’ve Missed: Four episodes.

Where to Catch Up: Amazon and Vudu.

 


The Grinder: Season 1 (2015) 93%

What It’s About: Rob Lowe plays a famous (fake) TV lawyer, who — after his show gets cancelled — moves home to work for the (real) family law practice with his brother, played by Fred Savage.

What Critics Think: The Grinder‘s humor is buoyed by Lowe and Savage’s chemistry as a hilarious new odd couple.

Airs: Tuesdays on Fox at 8:30 p.m.

Number of Episodes You’ve Missed: Four

Where to Catch Up: AmazonFox.com, Google PlayHuluiTunes, PlayStation VideoVudu, Xbox Video, and Xfinity (with cable subscription)

 


Casual: Season 1 (2015) 92%

What It’s About: Casual is a new Jason Reitman comedy about a bachelor (Tommy Dewey) whose sister (Michaela Watkins) moves in with him after divorcing her husband — and brings her teenage daughter (Tara Lynne Barr) along with her.

What Critics Think: Reitman’s Casual is a funny — albeit very specific — look at modern dating, sharpened by edgy dialogue and self-assured performances.

Airs: Wednesdays at 12:01 a.m. on Hulu

Number of Episodes You’ve Missed: Three episodes.

Where to Catch Up: Hulu

 


The Last Kingdom: Season 1 (2015) 87%

What It’s About: Based on The Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell, The Last Kingdom is set in the 9th century where Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of northern Europe face attacks by Viking forces.

What Critics Think: The Last Kingdom fuses beautiful cinematography and magnificent action sequences to create highly gratifying historical drama.

Airs: Saturdays on BBC America at 10 p.m.

Number of Episodes You’ve Missed: Two episodes.

Where to Catch Up: Amazon, Google Play, iTunesPlayStation VideoVudu, and Xbox Video.

 


Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 1 (2015) 97%

What It’s About: Rachel Bloom stars as Rebecca Bunch in Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, a musical comedy about a young woman who moves across the country to be near her high school boyfriend from camp.

What Critics Think: Lively musical numbers and a refreshing, energetic lead make Crazy Ex-Girlfriend a charming, eccentric commentary on human relationships.

Airs: Mondays on The CW at 8 p.m.

Number of Episodes You’ve Missed: Two

Where to Catch Up: Amazon, CWTV.comGoogle Play, Hulu, Vudu, and Xbox Video.

 


Supergirl: Season 1 (2015) 92%

What It’s About: Melissa Benoist is Kara Danvers, who, after 12 years of keeping her superpowers a secret, decides to finally embrace her true identity: Supergirl.

What Critics Think: Benoist shines as Superman’s plucky little cousin in Supergirl, a family-friendly comic-book adaptation that ditches cynicism for heart.

Airs: Mondays on CBS at 8:30 p.m.

Number of Episodes You’ve Missed: None

Where to Catch Up: Premieres Monday, October 26 at 8:30 p.m. and then moves to its regular time (8 p.m. to 9 p.m.) on Monday, November 2 on CBS.

 

 

Emmy nominations are out for last season, but it’s already time for a new one. Television continues to rival, and sometimes surpass, the quality and success of film industry releases, with more networks than we ever thought possible 20 years ago. And, with the growing number of cable networks, we witness the capability of catering to more adult-oriented content. This fall, we will continue to see television grow, for better and for worse. Which new shows will achieve Fresh, or even Certified Fresh, status? Which will quickly go Rotten? And which of your favorite returning shows made the cut this year? Here’s the list as we know it, and we’ll continue to update it as premiere dates continue to be broadcast.
