Fall TV Warning Part 5

I could run 4 links in a row, but do you really need me to tell you where parts 1 through 4 are at this point?

Ironside: I saw star Blair Underwood say that while his character is in a wheelchair, in no way, shape, or form does that define him. Uh, I understand what he's getting at here, but isn't the whole POINT of "Ironside" that he's in a wheelchair? This isn't "Delvecchio," for crying out loud.

Almost Human: Man teams with robot to stop crime, from what I gather. Two things prevent me from making fun of this: 1) It stars Karl ("Dredd," "Star Trek") Urban, whose work I quite enjoy; and 2) it doesn't actually premiere until November, so we'll have plenty of time to make fun of it later.

Trophy Wife: Well, I guess Malin Ackerman has gone from ingenue to "other woman" in romantic comedies to...this. Good for Bradley Whitford's character for nabbing her, I guess, but the show looks to be about Ackerman finding herself in awkward situations and looking like an ass. Maybe it'll be funny--though the preview doesn't give me confidence--but I just kind of feel bad for her.

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland: Spinoff of "Once Upon a Time," only this time featuring Alice in Wonderland. Considering I don't watch the original show and considering I feel asleep 5 different times watching the Tim Burton/Johnny Depp "Alice," this one isn't high on my list.

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD: I guess I need to finally see "Avengers," huh? I hope this is good, but I kind of worry that the characters are more types than anything--the stock wise-ass already annoys me. Still, I'll give this a chance. I like how it's called "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD," by the way, so we don't confuse it with Archie Comic's The Shield.
