Meteor is crashing in to NBC tonight at 9p and you want to be there to watch this 2 Sunday night 4 hour event! Meteor is an action packed suspenseful 4 hour event that also has heart. I am sucker for disaster movies, and I really loved this one. It really is a thrill ride, that you don’t want to end but it has to because otherwise it would be the end of the world.
Meteor starts off tonight with comet crashing into one of the largest Asteroids, Kassandra sending her straight towards us. Christopher Lloyd and Marla Sokoloff are in Mexico and they have the coordinates that can stop her, but they have to get from there to JPL where the meteor specialists are meeting to help stop Kassandra. As they travel north they will deal loss signals, cars dying and death all while pieces of Kassandra are coming down around them and the world. Meanwhile back at JPL they are trying to stop the incoming smaller rocks while waiting trying to figure out when is the best time to hit Kassandra without the help of the two scientists who can stop it. Jason Alexander is at JPL mapping out the best plan and he is great in this dramatic role.
Outside of JPL there is a small town that was one of the first places hit by meteor rock and through this town we see how people deal with this disaster. We see the good, the bad and the ugly come out as they face impending doom. Stacy Keach is great as the town sheriff trying to keep his town together as they lose it. There are few scenes with him that really touched me because it was great to see the people help each other through the crisis. Also in this town is a family that trying to make it through. The mom is a doctor who has to try to save all the people that have been injured by the rocks including a school bus full of kids that included her son. When a meteor strikes the hospital and it falls down around them they are trapped inside but apart from each other because of debris. Her husband and a firefighter risk all to get them out. Kenneth Mitchell plays the dad and he is used to playing end of the world roles after starring in Jericho and he is just as good in this role!
The one storyline I was not in love with is the one where Billy Campbell is a cop who tries to get his crocked ex-partner to turn himself in, but instead of going to jail he plans to hurt the people closest to Billy, his daughter and his dad the town sheriff of that small town, Stacy Keach. Although I didn’t care that much for this part of the movie it all fits together by the end of the movie.
Tune into the beginning of Meteor at 9p on NBC for a movie that will really make an impact!!! And make sure to set your Tivos for next week to see how it all ends because you are not going to want to miss that.

But Kate, who is caring for an ailing father (Dean Stockwell) and finishing up a teaching degree, needs this job and she resolves to stand up to whatever tricks and pranks the Chandler kids can dish outÃ¢â‚¬â€and to help them cope with the death of their mother.

The feeling is mutual, but a bitter Emily is determined not to let Kate into her lifeÃ¢â‚¬â€or her fatherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s. Emily doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t realize that Kate understands exactly what sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going through because Kate lost her own mother as a teenager. Somehow, Kate must find a way to reach the angry and isolated teen since EmilyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s happinessÃ¢â‚¬â€and KateÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s as wellÃ¢â‚¬â€depends on it.
The Nanny Express is a cute story about a woman who is taking care of her sick father takes on a job as a nanny to two kids who recently lost their mother. The kids do not want a nanny and they terrorize them as much as they can, wait until you see what they do to Kate.

Also there is another romantic story within this movie about a bus driver, played by the suave Peter Dobson, who has a crush on Kate’s friend who doesn’t seem interested him. Will he be able to win her heart driving Kate and her friend around or will he rides be a lonely one. Personally I wish Hallmark would give this plot its own movie because I really loved it and wanted more!!!
Vanessa Marcil is great the nanny who is not going to let the kids she is taking care of get her down. I also loved the kids play by Uriah and Emily who I bet had a lot of fun making some of the scenes of the movie! It was also nice to see Dean Stockwell and Stacy Keach back on TV! All in all it was a fun innocent movie!
So let The Nanny Express take care you tonight on Hallmark at 9p!!!
In “Rita Rocks,” Nicole Sullivan stars as Rita Clemens, an overworked wife and mother in the middle of a full-blown identity crisis Ã¢â‚¬â€ which includes trying to maintain romance with her husband Jay (Richard Ruccolo), juggling the demands of her nine-year-old daughter, Shannon (Kelly Gould), and disciplining her defiant teenage daughter Hallie (Natalie Dreyfuss) and her ever-present boyfriend Kip (Raviv Ullman). After being passed over for a promotion at work, Rita is at her witÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s end. In search of “youthful” Rita, she dusts off her old guitar and forms a garage band with her nosy postal carrier Patty (Tisha Campbell-Martin) and unemployed neighbor Owen (guest star Ian Gomez), in the hopes of putting that spark back in her life.
Lifetime who has had huge success with the drama Army Wives, is branching out to sitcoms tonight with Rita Rocks. Rita Rocks fills the hole the networks have left by not doing traditional sitcoms. It is funny and just has that good old family sitcom feel. You know with a married couple trying to make it work as they raise their 3 kids. Their oldest daughter is dating a loser who basically spends all his time at their house and is in Rita’s band! The show deals with all the same sitcom family problems that the other sitcoms have, but you know what that never grows old and they are always funny. The one thing that shocked me is Nicole Sullivan can really sing and the band is really good. I think I might have to go to a show taping just to hear them play!!!
So tune into Rita Rocks at 8:30p every night this week for a show that will make laugh out loud and boogie on down!!!
