January 2014 is going to be packed with new and returning seasons. The long-awaited season four of Downton Abbey starts in January along with the PBS series Sherlock… not to be confused with the Sherlock inspired CBS series Elementary.
Over on the Syfy channel we will see a return for season four of Lost Girl, which premieres Monday, January 13th, at 8 p.m. Check your local listings. The same night, Being Human returns for a fourth season as well. In a brand-new series called Rake, on Fox, Greg Kinnear returns to television playing a criminal defense lawyer whose wife has gotten out of control. I don’t know much about this one, but based on the commercials alone, it looks bad. Now I know I often say that you have to look at something before you can make a judgment, but the problem is that Greg Kinnear isn’t all that great.
The new seasons look quite interesting with all the shows returning after a break. I am looking forward to the return of Lost Girl and Hannibal most of all. Initially, I did not enjoy Hannibal, but it’s grown on me.
