As a lot of the attention recently seems to be focusing on Constantine, Arrow and The Flash, here's a little bit of a preview of one of this year's other new series from The CW, iZombie.

This is the official blurb from The CW about the show: 

Olivia “Liv” Moore was a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out…until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. As one of the newly undead, Liv is doing her best to blend in and look as human as possible. Her appearance now passes for “Goth,” with shockingly pale skin and nearly white hair, and her demeanor has gone from exuberant to exhausted. The change in Liv is baffling to her mother, her former fiancé, Major, and her best friend and roommate, Peyton, who still has the high-energy, Type-A personality that Liv has completely abandoned. Despite her post-traumatic ennui, Liv has devised a way to resist her baser urges...

We kick off this week with another wonderful back and forth between Tyrion and Jaime. Somehow I get the feeling that these two had immense fun recording all these prison scenes as Tyrion, despite his precarious position, lists all the things Jaime has managed to get up to over the last few years and is still somehow the best boy. Jaime takes himself out of the running as Tyrion's champion and promises to go and get Bronn after dropping the bombshell that Cersei has named The Mountain as her champion.

There's a nice few shots of The Mountain making offal out some some prisoners/slaves. I'm not really sure what they are, but they aren't around long enough to discover why he's chopping them into little bits. At this point we really want The Hound to come back and face The Mountain as Tyrion's champion, but he's still off with Arya in the wilderness somewhere. Precisely where I'm still not entirely sure of either, there seems to be a lot of looting and pillaging going on in the...

Okay... First off... It's just plain wrong seeing Jack in a typical London boozer. Furthermore, it's even more wrong when Jack and Chloe actually refer to it as a pub. It just sounds weird. Bauer finds the poor sap who had his head blown off in the toilets on last week's episode and gives chase to his murderer. After once again letting their only lead escape, Chloe drops a figurative bomb on the proceedings. It appears that her husband Morris and son Prescott were killed and it all seems to tie in with the fact that she was in the loop on Jack's disappearance at the end of last season. 

The suits make preparations to hand Jack over to the Russians which is about as likely to happen as William Devane and Stephen Fry sealing their special relationship with an on screen smooch. Boudreau is so intent on making sure that Audrey and Jack's paths never cross that he fakes Heller's signature on the executive order, thus sealing his...

With the release of the 2014/2015 primetime schedule ABC has released details of some of the new shows due to be hitting our screens this year. A couple of these shows have definitely caught our attention and we're eagerly looking forward to seeing more. So here's a round up of a the ones we're excited about.

THE WHISPERS

Aliens have invaded Earth by using our most unlikely resource to achieve world domination—our children. As the kids unwittingly help these unseen enemies, the clock counts down in this suspenseful race to save humanity. 

The Whispers stars the awesome Lily Rabe of American Horror Story fame as Claire Bennigan, British actor Barry Sloane as Wes Lawrence and Heroes' Milo Ventimiglia as John Doe/Drew Bennigan. The show is executive produced by Steven Spielberg so will hopefully be a high budget shiny affair that lasts for more than one season.

Well then. So this week we finally get to lay eyes on the much talked about Iron Bank of Braavos. It's really not that far removed from my vision of a Gringotts-esque operation after all. Although rather than Warwick Davies being in charge, we seem to have a rather beardy Mark Gatiss. Stannis and Ser Davos manage to persuade the bearded banker that they should get all the money instead of Tywin Lannister and Tommen based on the fact that the Onion Knight chopped off his own fingers. Next week, Jaime will be trading in his missing hand for a new suit of armour and a shiny belt.

Speaking of having things chopped off we're back with what's left of Theon! His sister mounts a rescue attemps but to no avail and, during the battle, we get to see exactly how hard Ramsay Snow is as he partakes in a nice bout of post coital stabbing without even bothering to get dressed properly. Reek then gets his birthday bath as Ramsay plots to send him under cover as .... Himself.

It would...

Straight in with episode 2. I love that 24 does big season openers with multi episodes.

The hunt for Jack begins and there's dissention in the CIA ranks as not everyone is happy with Kate being re-instated to help with the search. We're reminded that, not only was she the only one who knew Jack was up to something, but also that she didn't see whatever was wrong with her ex partner/lover/whatever he was. So she's basically a human being.

The Girl with the Many Tattoos returns to her nerdcave and who should be there, but good ole gravelly voice himself: Michael Wincott who appears to be some kind of King of the Nerds, Adrian Croft. We find out that Jack's plan is to find a hacker type who was formerly party of Chloe's group and is now plotting to assassinate Heller. The troops are mobilised and set to work. Go Team Nerd!

Oh look... Catelyn Stark appears to be this season's big baddie. At least she's managed to finally move on from The Red Wedding, unless of...

And we're back. Split screen action from the outset as we're wandering around an East London market until it cuts quickly into a CIA field office. I'm immediately confused as to what Agent Sarah Walker is doing in London... Especially without Chuck. The show wastes no time throwing Jack straight into the middle of a fight. The years off screen don't seem to have dulled Jack in the slightest. If anything he seems even more kick ass than I remember. 

James Heller is now President of the US, which is awesome as he's one of my all time favourite characters in the 24 verse so It's fantastic to see him back. Seeing Michael Wincott's name in the credits sends a shiver down my spine since he's one of my favourite actors and I can't wait to see what he's up to in this.

Everyone seems a bit on edge that Jack is there as he's obviously never been cleared of the...
