It's September, and that means a new slate of television shows to watch.

And it all begins next week.

September 10

Flash Forward
ABC, Thursdays
When a mysterious event causes the entire world to black out, humanity is given a glimpse into its near future, and every man, woman and child is forced to come to grips with whether their destinies can be avoided or fulfilled. Adapting award-winning author Robert J. Sawyer's revolutionary novel, executive producers David S. Goyer (visionary co-writer of "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight") and Brannon Braga ("24," "Star Trek: Enterprise") invite you to embark on a journey to answer the question, "if you knew what your future held, what would you do?"

Stargate Universe

Faced with meeting the most basic needs of food, water and air, the group must unlock the secrets of the ship's Stargate to survive.

The long anticipated remake of the 1980s mini-series "V." Aliens finally make contact, appearing in large ships over many of earth's largest cities (never a good sign).
