Walker: Independence and The Winchesters

Prequels of other shows.

Walker: Independence (Season 1)

After an ambush Abby Walker (Katherine McNamara) makes her way to the town of Independence to try bring justice to the criminals that killed her husband, the only problem is her suspicions mostly fall on the little town's new sheriff!

This Western's first season is much better than the series that spawned it. Thumbs up for likeable characters, decent acting, nice sets, and most importantly an interesting plot. I'm hoping it gets a season two.

The Winchesters (Season 1)

After returning from war, John Winchester (Drake Rodger) gets entangled into the life of hunting monsters and other things that go bump in the night which sets up the Supernatural series - but does it really?

Good on them for trying to use creatures mostly not used in the original show, but its telling of the budget that most of them are either person shaped or "possess" people. It's also very strange that there's a notable absence of firearms but it's alright. I'm neither here nor there if this one gets a second season as its fine to end it where it did.
