Escape real life with sci-fi TV

Considering how difficult this year was, it’s no wonder primetime hastaken on a sci-fi tinge, offering escapism through supernatural plotsand otherworldly characters.

Considering how difficult this year was, it’s no wonder primetime has taken on a sci-fi tinge, offering escapism through supernatural plots and otherworldly characters. Here is a look at some of those shows premiering this fall:

FlashForward
Everyone in the world blacks out for two minutes and 17 seconds. (What better way to forget all the money you lost in the markets?) In that time, each person catches a glimpse of the future. A team of FBI agents (headed by actors Joseph Fiennes and John Cho) tries to piece together what happened and what’s unfolding.

Dollhouse
Eliza Dushku and the other “Actives” — operatives in an ultra-exclusive, illegal escort service who have had their personalities wiped clean — are back. Maybe creator Joss Whedon can wipe away our memories from this year.

Smallville
Young Superman “embraces his Kryptonian side.” Need a better reason to get lost in Season 9? Clark Kent dons the iconic “S.”

Medium

After suffering a stroke and winding up in a coma last season, Allison (Patricia Arquette) wasn’t talking to too many ghosts. Maybe the change of scenery — the series moves from NBC to CBS — will help.

Ghost Whisperer

Star Jennifer Love Hewitt sees dead people opposite her boyfriend and castmate Jamie Kennedy, who plays “ghost listener” Eli.
