Still, we wouldn't want anyone to accuse us of being unpatriotic, so let it be known that we're also looking forward to very English illusionist Derren Brown's Apocalypse show (Friday, October 26 at 9pm on Channel 4) and the return of A League of Their Own (Friday, October 26 at 10pm on Sky1), again featuring plenty of stars from the world of British comedy and sport having a laugh.
Arrow: Monday (October 22) at 8pm on Sky1
Sorry Superman, you've had your moment in the sun with Smallville. It's about time another hero took centre stage on our TVs. Stephen Amell is the man beneath the Green Arrow's hood, and he certainly looks like he could do some damage, which bodes well for Sky1's newest acquisition.
If you're not au fait with the story of the DC character, don't worry. The premiere will bring you up to speed pretty quickly with how billionaire playboy Oliver Queen, presumed dead after a shipwreck that claimed the life of his father, turns into the titular vigilante upon his return to Starling City years later. It's gritty, grounded and features plenty of people getting punched in the face... what's not to like?

Grimm: Monday (October 22) at 9pm on Watch
Fairy tales are hot stuff in the world of movies and TV at the moment, and of all of the projects out there we'd say that Grimm is probably the one that's the least sparkly and shiny - which therefore makes it badass!
The supernatural police procedural returns for its second season this week with a stonker of an opening episode, in which cop/secret Grimm Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) tries to save comatose girlfriend Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) and reconnect with the mother he thought dead while something beastly lurks in the shadows.

Girls: Monday (October 22) at 10pm on Sky Atlantic
Let's get this straight - Girls is not Sex and the City. It just happens to be about four ladies having sex in the city. And it's bloody funny. Writer, director and actress Lena Dunham has been heralded as one of comedy's brightest new stars for her frank, semi-autobiographical account of what it is to be young and struggling in New York.
Dunham plays Hannah, an aspiring writer who's just been cut off by her family and seeks comfort in the arms of her friends - sensible and serious roomate Marnie, virginal Shoshanna and well-travelled British girl Jessa. Their adventures aren't exactly as glamorous as those of Carrie, Samantha et al - as the executive producer credit for Judd Apatow suggests - but wouldn't you rather see a girl faceplant off the front of a bike than swoon over a pair of Jimmy Choos?

Elementary: Tuesday (October 23) at 9pm on Sky Living
It's the moment Sherlock fans have been looking forward to and dreading in equal measures. Elementary, the controversial US adaptation starring Jonny Lee Miller as Holmes and Lucy Liu as a bustier than usual Watson, finally hits UK screens.
Relocating from the iconic character's traditional home of London to a New York setting, the show is more of a procedural with a twist than a series of epic mysteries like the BBC adaptation. But it's still a lot of fun to see Miller bounce around, slowly piecing together the murder of a doctor's wife in this premiere episode.

Chicago Fire: Wednesday (October 24) at 9pm on Sky Living
Curious what Jesse Spencer's been up to since House finished? Well, wonder no more - turns out he's been hitting the gym and playing firefighters with Lady GaGa's bit 'o' stuff.
The former Neighbours star heads up an ensemble class including the aforementioned Taylor Kinney in new drama Chicago Fire, which centres around life at a firehouse in the great American city. The team unfortunately aren't seeing eye-to-eye at the beginning of the series following the death of a colleague, but all is forgotten when they are called to a dangerous blaze at a multi-storey building. It's like London's Burning, only sexier...
