Will You Watch Scoundrels?

at . Comments

The television season might be winding down, but that doesn't mean all new programming will soon be off the air.

And, no, thankfully we're not just referring to reality TV.

More and more networks are debuting new shows over the summer, many of which have critics and viewers excited. For example, The Good Guys on Fox will star Colin Hanks, Bradley Whitford and Bradley Whitford's mustache.

Then, there's Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family and, as ABC has just started to advertise, Scoundrels.

The latter series centers on a family of small-time criminals. When the unit's father is sentenced to a long prison term, his wife - played by Oscar nominee Virginia Madsen - takes over the enterprising brood.

Watch a preview for Scoundrels below and chime in: Will you give it a chance?

I plan to keep watching--I think this show has really good potential. I love the strength of Virginia Madsen's character, and look forward to see what she does.


I thought it was smart and funny. I definitely will be watching.


This show looks like absolute rubbish when compared to the original series from New Zealand. The New Zealand show was awesome and I don't know why they just don't show it here. Why do the studios continue to remake overseas TV shows and movies when they are never as good as the originals. Do they think we are stupid and won't get non-traditional American humor. This show will have its funny moments but it will never reach the levels of drama, action and comedy that the New Zealand one did. This is one of a few shows that had me in fits of laughter one minute and in tears the next. I recommend people get their hands on the original and watch it.


I will watch it for Patrick Flueger, can't wait to see him doing comedy.


Since Neal McDonough is out I will not watch this show.


I might've given it a chance if Neal McDonough had stayed...but when he left and was replaced with Elliott forget it...can't stand him, and the rest of the cast isn't enough to make me and my family want to tune this in....


I will watch David James Elliott in anything. Can't wait to see this.
