Last week we reviewed our top picks for new comedies premiering this fall season.  Now we’re looking at some of the best dramas hitting the small screen in just a few weeks.

There are a few favorites that we already covered earlier this year including Once Upon A Time’s spinoff Wonderland and Marvel Agents of Shield.  Both could have easily made our list.  So here is numbers 3-5 of the best dramas of the 2013 fall season.

Sleepy Hollow

Premiering on FOX on Monday, September 16th at 8 pm CT

Supernatural TV shows continue to be a big trend this year with the addition of shows such as Dracula on ABC and Sleepy Hollow on FOX.  What makes us highlight Sleepy Hollow is the inventiveness of its plot.  Thrust nearly 200 years into the future a particularly badass Ichabod Crane is still pursuing the murderous Headless Horseman.  With a ridiculously good looking cast, high production value, and instant chemistry between the leads, this is a sure fire hit for FOX.

The Blacklist

Premiering on NBC on Monday, September 23rd at 9 CT

James Spader is coming back to television.  We could end this review right there and have made our case for The Blacklist.  However, if you need further convincing, then take a look at the plot – Spader plays a criminal mastermind who turns himself into the FBI on the condition that he works with a rookie profiler.  The trailer shows Spader at his devilish best.


Premiering on CBS on Monday, September 23rd at 9 CT

Hostages is a political spy thriller set in 13 episodes.  Toni Collete plays a doctor set to operate on the President of the United States, but is waylaid when she is taken hostage and told to kill the president.  This may be the most gripping show debuting this fall and we can’t wait to see how it plays out.  We also can’t wait to see the return of The Practice’s Dylan McDermott to TV.
