What can we expect from this new TV season? Well … a lot of everything.
There will be an overload of scary sci-fi creatures and of scary, real-life killers. There will be new batches of soldiers and singers and such. And there will be quirks; for instance:
•The new “Star Trek” show doesn’t look much like a “Star Trek” … but another show (Fox’s “The Orville”) DOES look and feel like “Trek.”
•Most networks are trying fantasy shows; Fox has three new ones this fall, plus an “X-Files” return at mid-season. But the CW — which has been sci-fi obsessed – has no new ones. It’s adding

Brian Barton had everything going for him, or so it seemed until he vanished
Vanished in Seattle looks at the case of rising rock star Brian Barton, who vanished just before he was due to embark on a tour with his band.
Brian Barton was up and coming musician in the punk rock band as Fate Would Have It, when just before his first big tour was due to take place he vanished.
Brian was in love and his band were on their way up and possibly headed for the big time.
Then in 2005 the 25-year-old simply disappeared, leaving friends and fellow band mates equally baffled and suspicious of each other.
John Krebs was barton’s best buddy told the Huff Post that he thought Barton’s girlfriend Breanna Duvall knew something about his disappearance, but others are not so sure.
The founder of the band Barton played

150 years ago there was no International Women’s Day. There wasn’t even a vote for women. So what chance for a poor illiterate, indigent Irish woman facing a murder trial before an all-male jury in New Jersey?
What chance then, what chance now?
The case of Bridget Deignan (sometimes written as Durgan) was once open and shut.
Author Sheila Duane opened it again.
Now it is about to be opened and shut a second time by a TV show.
With the same result as before.
Bridget would begin her short life in Sligo.
That life would be ended at the end of a hangman’s rope in New Brunswick, New Jersey, on August 30, 1867.
According to Sheila Duane, author of “Bridget’s Hanging,” Bridget was executed for a crime she did not commit, and by citizens who despised the Irish, the impoverished, and feared and distrusted Catholics.
That hanging is soon to be recreated on a TV show,

Rumors of Alaskan Bush People being cancelled have been circulating for weeks now, mostly because Discovery Channel has not announced its renewal. It seems that those rumors are not true, however, as reports of filming crews working in and around Hoonah, where the Alaskan Bush People family spend a lot of time, have surfaced in recent days on various websites, including the Bitbag. Other news about the Browns has recently emerged, specifically about Joshua (aka “Bam Bam”) Brown. Between the developments in Joshua’s life and the issues that Matt Brown is dealing with, Season 6 of Alaskan Bush People will likely see many changes from last year.
Let’s talk about the second eldest Alaskan Bush People child first — Joshua. There is talk that he is in love and may even be married. Who’s the recipient of his affection? Allison Kagan — one of the producers of ABP. As reported
