Fall TV and Jason Aldean: 5 things to do this week

old_television-300x201

Monday heralds the beginning of the fall TV season, and judging by the response to our recent TV poll on seattletimes.com, an awful lot of you are looking forward to some quality time with “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Castle,” “The Big Bang Theory” and old friend Michael J. Fox. Listed here are some of the shows premiering this week, plus some other things to do.

1 Fire up the DVR

‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ 8 p.m. Tuesday on ABC.

‘The Michael J. Fox Show’  8 p.m. Thursday on NBC.

‘The Big Bang Theory’  8 p.m. Thursday on CBS.

Agent Coulson, a good guy in the multifaceted Marvel-verse, gets to try some dialog from Joss Whedon in ABC’s superhero spinoff. Sheldon, Leonard, Penny and their friends bring their brand of smart talk back to CBS. And Michael J. Fox is playing a news anchor who goes back to work after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. (Meanwhile, those of us at ArtsPage who like “Sherlock” on the BBC will just wait here, withering away, for our hero to return.)

The Georgia-bred country star behind “Dirt Road Anthem” and “Big Green Tractor” drives his Night Train Tour to Tacoma, and will surely haul out more of his hits, like “Take a Little Ride” and “My Kinda Party.”

3 Ivan Doig

7 p.m. Tuesday, Seattle Central Library, free

Catch up with Seattle-area novelist Doig as he reads from his latest Montana-set novel, “Sweet Thunder.” Read a review of the novel here.

4 'She's Come Undone'

Through Oct. 13, Center Theatre at the Armory, Seattle Center; $23-$38, book-it.org

Kelly Kitchens has adapted Wally Lamb’s best-selling 1992 novel — which got even more attention after being chosen as an Oprah’s Book Club Selection in 1996 — of loss and resilience for Book-It Repertory Theatre’s new production.

5 Byrd Ensemble

8 p.m. Saturday, St. Joseph Parish, Seattle, $10-$20, byrdensemble.com

The vocal group led by Markdavin Obenza opens its 10th anniversary season (the season is called “Big Byrd”) with “The Great Renaissance,” a program of works by White, Tallis, Byrd and Allegri, that includes Striggio’s 40-voice Ecce beatem lucem and his 60-voice Agnus Dei (II). It’s big. And it’s lush. Trust us.
