USA’s show Shooter, a small screen version of the Mark Wahlberg movie, was supposed to debut tomorrow, but due the shooting of several officers in Dallas that left 5 dead, they decided to postpone it a week. Now after yesterday’s shooting of 6 cops in Baton Rogue that left 3 dead, they have decided to postpone the show indefinitely. A decision I think is wise because American needs a break from it.
Something I don’t think TNT understands as they continue airing Murder in the First that has been dealing with issues close to recent horrible events. First, they dealt with a huge football player being shot and killed by an unknown person at a club. That fake murder aired just two weeks after Christina Grimmie’s murder and the Pulse Shooting. Then over the last few weeks, they have been dealing with Taye Diggs shooting an unarmed African American man around the same time that Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. Sometimes when life imitates art, we don’t know need to see it. Now is one of those times.
When Suits ended its fifth season, I didn’t know how they were going to continue on with the show. With Mike (Patrick J. Adams) in prison and Pearson Specter Litt gutted, it seemed more like a series finale than a season one. Well, those plot points gave the show a chance for a reboot.
Tonight’s episode at 9p on USA, starts off with Mike being processed for his new home of two years. He will get his hair buzzed, stripped down and left in a room alone until they ready to place him in his cell. Once he is in new room, he meets his roommate who gives him to low down on prison life.
While he is adjusting to his new life, Jessica (Gina Torres), Louis (Rick Hoffman) and Donna (Sarah Rafferty) are dealing with the fact that they came back to an empty office after Mike and Rachel’s (Meghan Markle) failed wedding.
Harvey (Gabriel Macht) goes to console Rachel when he gets a call from Louis that everyone quit the law firm. Now the five of them have to figure out how to save their a$$es and their jobs. Every time they think they got it figured out, something comes along and sets them back. Eventually they think they have it all worked out, but do they?
If they did, what would this season be about? That is something this episode has done really well, they set things up for a really intense season. Not only for Mike, but for all the people he thought he was helping out by going to prison and admitting he faked being an attorney.
I can’t say anymore because Pearson Specter Litt made me sign a confidentially agreement and they are better lawyers than me. But there are two things I will tell you about the 6th season premiere. First off, it will keep you on the edge of your seat the full hour. You will never know what is going to happen next, so you will be surprised over and over again. Because of all of that you are going to be very enthralled with the episode. The second thing I will tell you is that Hoffman has a moment that will have you laughing so hard, you will be crying. Therefore, have the remote ready because you are going to want pause and rewind that scene a few times before you move on.
Basically, my verdict is that Suits is back better than ever, so you don’t want to miss it.
After 8 summers of vacationing in The Hamptons, we say goodbye to Royal Pains tonight at 10p on USA.
Just over 100 episodes ago, we were introduced to Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein), a NYC doctor who was just fired and dumped by his fiancé’. Fate brought him to The Hamptons and luck made him a concierge doctor there. He is the perfect mix of House and MacGyver and he used that combination to help over a hundred people in the upscale Long Island community.
He didn’t do this alone, he had help from his younger brother Evan (Paulo Costanzo). When we got to know him, he was an immature wise a$$, and he never changed. Well he grew up a little when he met his wife Paige (Brooke D’Orsay), who saw past all of that to make him a man.
Divya (Reshma Shetty) was Hank’s right hand (wo)man, a doctor without the MD after her name. Even though she was his assistant, she was so much more to him.
As their business HankMed grew, they needed more help and they got that with Dr. Jeremiah Sacani (Ben Shenkman). What he didn’t have in social skills, he made up for with his medical knowledge.
Royal Pains wasn’t only a show about medicine, it was also about family. While Hank and Evan are brothers, they made Divya and Jeremiah their siblings. We saw them go through the good times and the bad times together. They all had many loves, but they also found someone special. Evan and Divya married their lovers; will Hank wind up with his soulmate? That you will have to tune in for to find out.
Tonight’s episode starts with Boris (Campbell Scott) missing and Hank and Evan looking for him. Someone wants his DNA and we will find out why. Boris knows he can’t stay in The Hamptons any longer, so he asks Hank to join him. The timing is perfect because with Divya moving to Baltimore (did she get into John Hopkins Medical School?), Jeremiah is opening his own lab and Evan is busy with the hospital, it is time for HankMed to take an extended break. Hank is ready for his next move, but what is it? Like I said Boris wants him to join him and then Evan asks him to run the ER at Hamptons General. Is this the change that he has been yearning for?
Since this is the last episode, we will find out what he chooses. He chooses correctly, because of that he gets the perfect ending, and we get the perfect series finale for Royals Pains.
This medical drama with heart never lost its touch throughout its 8 seasons. I am so sad to see it go, but I am glad it is going out in a style fitting for the show. It has been a great run and I am thankful we had it as long as we did.
So I must say thank you to the cast and crew for a show that only got better with each passing episode. Royal Pains might be gone, but it will never be forgotten.
Tonight at 10p on USA, it is time for the 2nd to last episode of Royal Pains. To make the pain of the show ending next week a little easier, tonight’s ep is a musical one! Therefore, it will have you singing and dancing because it is so wonderful.
It is finally time for Eddie (Henry Winkler) and Ms. Newberg’s (Christine Ebersole) wedding. She has invited her friend Annette (Cloris Leachman), who is legendary actress, to attend her fifth nuptials. Annette hasn’t being feeling well and Hank (Mark Feuerstein) is going to trying to figure what is wrong with her. As he works his medical magic on her, Hank, Evan (Paulo Costanzo), Paige (Brooke D’Orsay), Divya (Reshma Shetty), Ms. Newberg, Eddie and Jeremiah (Ben Shenkman) will be singing and dancing all around The Hamptons. For one number, Hank will be serenaded by several of his past patients, reminding him of the great job he has done on them througout the years.
Finally, it is time for the wedding with a beautiful toast followed by a spectacular performance. When it is all done, we will find out why this musical episode came about.
I am a sucker for musical episodes, and this one is my favorite so far because the story and the music are so phenomenal. Not only can these actors act, they can also sing. The show starts off with a lullaby by Divya that is so gorgeous, and it just keeps getting better from there.
Tonight, don’t only watch this episode live, make sure to record it too. You are going to want to watch it again and again. I know I have already watched it twice and I just got the screener this morning. Off for a third time is the charm viewing because it is just that charming.
Seven years and four days after Royal Pains debuted on USA, the medical drama is hitting a major milestone. Tonight at 10p, HankMed celebrates it’s 100th episode and what an episode it is.
When Hampton Heritage is suffering from a doctor shortage in the ER due to a summer cold outbreak, Hank (Mark Feuerstein) convinces his brother Evan (Paulo Costanzo), who is CEO of the hospital, to let him fill in for the day. At first it seems like a challenge for Hank to once again deal with the hustle and bustle of fast-paced Emergency Room, but then his knowledge of being a Concierge Doctor helps save a patient’s life.
Just when it seems like things are on the up and up for everyone; Evan quarantines a man, that recently visited Sierra Leone, who came into the ER with a fever. Does he have Ebola? How will the hospital deal with being on lock down? The decision will lead to Hank and Evan getting into a much needed, heated argument.
Meanwhile Divya (Reshma Shetty) is dealing with a case from the past. A patient she thought was better, turns out to be sicker than she thought. But that isn’t the only problem that she has with her patient.
While she is having it kind of rough with her patient, Jeremiah’s (Ben Shenkman) is a dream come true. One that gives him better insight into himself through her.
Finally, you can’t have a 100th episode without a blast from the past. One that seems to be setting things up for the series finale in a few weeks.
Royal Pains has been such a wonderful heartfelt show that it is great to see one of the good ones hit this magical milestone. In cable it is rare, but this show deserved it. And it got an episode fitting for its celebration.
So tune in for an episode that doesn’t disappoint, not that any of their episodes ever do.
Complications checks into USA tonight at 9p and you don’t want to miss this heart pounding drama. Dr. John Ellison (Jason O’Mara) is your normal ER doctor, but his whole life is about to change.
His daughter recently died from cancer and his wife and him are dealing with her death differently. One day, his dog finds a squirrel and it looks like he injured it. John’s wife insists that he brings the squirrel to animal control to try to save. As he is driving there, he pulls over and finds out that the rodent died. As he is parked, he hears some gun shots and young boy is left bleeding to death. He runs over to save the kid, and the people who shot him are coming back to finish the job. John sees a gun and she shoots at the two people in the car and kills them. You would think that would be enough to change his life, but that is just the beginning.
The father of the boy he shot is in jail and he is a gang leader. The people who shot the kid, will do anything to finish the job. So now the doctor has to try to hide him, but he doesn’t know where. Gretchen (Jessica Szohr), a nurse at the hospital, offers to help him out, but now John owes her. What John doesn’t know is that she has a crazy life, and he is going to regret getting mixed up with her.
She isn’t the only madness added into his life, the boy’s father’s gang is also now a big part of his life.
His normal life is being turned upside down and it is a thrill ride you want to get on. I don’t think I can properly explain how awesome this show is because it is complicated to describe, but it is surprisingly addictive.
I was not expecting to like this show, but within in a few minutes you will be as hooked as I am. USA sent out the first 5 episodes and I have wanted more ever since I binge watched it. Complications is this summer’s most exciting show, so tune in for it tonight and every Thursday at 9p.
It is lucky 7 for Royal Pains tonight at 10p on USA and it looks like it is going to be another exciting year for HankMed!
When we last saw our Hamptons crew they were asked by Boris (Campbell Scott) to be on the Hamptons Heritage’s board and they agreed. Tonight’s episode picks up a little after that and they are adjusting to their new responsibility. Hank (Mark Feuerstein) feels like there is one thing he needs to do and that is propose to Charlotte. He isn’t the only make some life changes, Evan (Paulo Costanzo) and Paige (Brooke D’Orsay) just bought a new house and she finds out she has a baby on the way. Talking about babies, Divya (Reshma Shetty) is trying to work out a custody deal with her ex-husband and things are looking good in favor.
Things seems to be going their way, but how long will that last? Be prepared for several shocking moments that will set up the rest of the season.
If having all of that wasn’t enough for them, they are still working on cases and tonight’s is one that a lot of viewers will be able to guess the diagnosis just from her symptoms. It will hit close for a lot of the audience. Be prepared to have the tissues ready for this one.
Summers are always a little hotter when Royal Pains comes back to TV, so get ready for the temperatures to start rising again after tonight!
Tonight at 9p on USA, White Collar bids Au Revoir. So do the two stars of the show think that the series finale will leave their dedicated fans happy? Tim DeKay said, “Iâ€™m very satisfied with the ending of the series.” Then he added, “One can never be satisfied with the ending of a project that they loved but creatively since we had to end it I feel that we gave a great exciting twist and ending that will surprise I believe everyone.” Does his co-star Matt Bomer feel the same way? Neal Caffrey said, “I was really satisfied in some ways and in some ways I would have been interested to explore other avenues as well.” Then he explained, “I mean I think there was still directions to go. But I think the way they wrapped it up was really well done in the sense that they didnâ€™t try to tie everything up into a nice bow. They really left some things open ended and left a lot up the viewer’s imagination which I always think is more potent than anything you could put down on a piece of paper.”
And talking about things being wrapped up really well, what about those suits? Peter Burke got to take some home with him, while Bomer did not but he will miss being dressed up in them.
So what did DeKay and him take home from the set? Matt took home a painting of a Harem and an old map of Manhattan that was in his character’s apartment. He also grabbed the bust of Socrates and gave it to the show creator Jeff Eastin. Tim also took a painting that was just outside of his partner in crime’s apartment that was barely seen and two badges that belonged to his character.
What will we take away from White Collar? A lot of great memories about two men who conned our hearts into loving them. Thanks for the memories; I just wish you could’ve stayed around a little longer. Til we meet again, Au Revoir.
Chrisley Knows Best is back on USA tonight at 10p with 2 new episodes and they are just as crazy as ever!
Tonight at 10p, Julie goes back to work and she leaves Todd in charge of the house. Which isn’t the best idea. She tells him to make some lasagna for dinner, but he has no idea what he is doing. Will they have a homecooked dinner or will they be going out to eat.
On that note, 16 year old Savannah was asked to go on a date by Spencer, 19, who is a former American Idol contestant. Todd will do everything in his power to stop this from happening. When he can’t, he insists that his mother goes on the date as their chaperone. How does it go? You just have to see it, to believe it.
Then at 10:30p, Julie and Todd leave the kids alone overnight because she has some business to do in South Carolina. Well when the parents are away the kids will play. Eight year old Grayson sees this as a money opportunity, so he bribes his older brother, Kyle, for his silence. Reluctantly Kyle gives in and now it is time for them to have some fun. That is until Julie and Todd call the kids to them that their plans changed and they will be home in 45 minutes. Will the kids be busted or will they get away with daring to disobey their parents?
Chrisley Knows Best is a reality show, but it is so over-the-top you would think it is scripted. That is why this show is so much fun to watch.
I also think that families should watch this show together because it will make you appreciate them a little more. I honestly don’t know if I would be able to handle Todd as my father, could you?
Matt Bomer is the latest celebrity to take part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Instead of pouring the freezing cold water on his head, he had his three sons, Henry, Walker and Kit, do the honor. Between their giggling and his shock, this is the cutest one of them all.
