The Returned debuts on A&E tonight and it is worth checking out. The drama is something we’ve seen before, but that doesn’t mean it is not worth watching.
The Returned is based on a French version of the show and it is about a small town where the dead are suddenly coming back to life. It sounds a lot like ABC’s Resurrection and it should because it feels the same. There are differences and that is why I say it is worth watching.
Teenager Camille (India Ennenga) is the first person to return and the series starts with her death four years beforehand. She was on a school trip when the bus she was on crashes through a guardrail and goes down a mountain, killing everyone on board. She suddenly wakes up years later with no memory and returns home. Her parents (Mark Pellegrino and Tandi Wright) have split since her death and they are reunited when she returns. Camille has a twin sister, who did not go on the school trip, and she no longer looks like her sister. Not only don’t Lena (Sophie Lowe) and Camille look alike, the twin wants nothing to do with her returned sister. Tonight’s episode is about her story and by the end of the episode you find out what really happen when the bus crashed and what ties it has to another Returned.
Another one of the Returned is Simon (Mat Vairo), and he died on his wedding day. He wants to be reunited with his fiancee Rowan (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) but she has moved on and wants nothing to do with him.
Then there is Julie (Sandrine Holt), a doctor, who finds a boy (Dylan Kingwell) on her way home. She takes in the 8 year old, but he doesn’t say much. She doesn’t know who he is and what his ties to the town are, but soon she will find out.
The town slowly watches their loved ones come back to life each week and now they will have to find out why they are back.
Unforgettable was cancelled not once, but twice by CBS. The unforgettable drama has found a new home, and that place is A&E according to The Hollywood Reporter. No word when the fourth season will air or if they will have to once again hide another one of Poppy Montgomery’s pregnancy, time will tell on those answers.
While me may not know that information, we know this is great news. CBS messed up by cancelling this show for a second time because it was the strongest drama they had on the air during the summer.
Hopefully A&E will give this police procedural about a woman who never forgets anything the respect it deserves.
We know who Donnie Wahlberg and his younger brother, Mark are. Well tonight at 10:30p, we will get to know their mother, Alma, and their old brother, Paul, who owns Wahlburgers.
Wahlburgers, is a successful restaurant in Boston that Paul manages and his brothers help fund. Their mother, Alma, helps to run Alma Nove, Paul’s other restaurant, which is less than a block from the burger joint. Paul goes back and forth between the two and his mother is worried it is too much for her son. She decides to get him a assistant and he hires her because he knows not to defy his mom.
Especially if he wants to remain her favorite. Although she tells Donnie and Mark that they are her favorite too. I enjoy this part of the show because it is so sweet. No matter how old, rich or famous they get, they still act like the little boys they were in Dorchester trying to win their mom’s affection over from their brothers.
While the show is mostly about Wahlburgers, it’s also about getting to know The Wahlbergs. They are much different than the tough guys we see them play and because of that you will adore this show and them a little more.
Wahlburgers is one of the rare reality shows that actually gets it right, but then again with Donnie and Mark’s producing track records, it would be hard for them to mess it up!
The only negative, is there is not enough Nacho on the show for my likings.
Tune in tonight and every Wednesday, so you can get to know a different side of The Wahlbergs on Wahlburgers.
We all know the names Bonnie & Clyde, but do you know their story? Well tonight and tomorrow at 9p on Lifetime, A&E and History, their tale is being told and you get to see why they are so legendary!
The two-part mini-series starts off with Clyde Barrow’s life before he met Bonnie Parker and her’s before she met him. He was always a bad boy and she always wanted to be star. So when these two meet, it was like bang bang this not going to be good for anyone else but them.
Shortly after their first meeting, he was sent off jail, but when he was freed Bonnie & Clyde were born. This telemovie takes you through their journey from robbing banks to eventually killing people, and finally how they lost their lives on during that fateful ambush on May 23, 1934. But there was a lot that happened in-between and those gaps are filled in tonight and tomorrow. Like how they got their name, the female reporter that covered their crime spree, the people that were part of their gang, the Texas Ranger that sought them out and their love story that was unlike any other. They were soul mates destined to be together and their story was meant to be told like it is told in this two-part television event.
Emile Hirsh and Holliday Grainger bring these infamous criminals to life and they are so believable that they transcend you back to 1930’s when the two people they are playing were very much alive. So tune in to see a miniseries that give their subject’s tale justice even if Bonnie & Clyde never really saw justice, tonight and tomorrow at 9p on Lifetime, A&E and History.
The guys from Duck Dynasty are in New York City to promote their A&E show and one of the bearded members of the group was escorted out of the hotel for “facial profiling”. Jase Robertson was on Live with Kelly and Michael this morning and he told Michael Strahan how when he asked a clerk at the hotel he was staying at where the bathroom was, that employee escorted out him of the hotel and pointed in the opposite direction. Instead of being all upset about it, he handled it very well. If he was a New Yorker by birth, then he would’ve gone back in the hotel and demanded for that guy to be fired. At least that is what this NYer would’ve done.
But then again you can’t necessarily blame the guy who threw him out because after all the guys admitted that during duck season the longest they have gone without a shower/bath is 60 days. Although I am sure they cleaned themselves up when they left Louisiana for the Big City.
After 7 seasons A&E has decided they no longer want to rock with Gene Simmons Family Jewels. Shannon Tweed Tweeted the sad news today by saying, “I just got word that our show Gene Simmons Family Jewels will not be picked up.” I guess after Gene and her finally tied the knot, there was not much for the network to do with them.
I will miss Gene, Shannon, Sophie and Nick on our TVs all the time, but Mrs Simmons promises this won’t be the last of them! For some reason I don’t think it will be.

Shannon Tweed will be on The Joy Behar Show tonight with her long time love and looks like she is ready the give father of her two children the KISS off. When the singer made a joke about his Family Jewels, she walked off the set. Joy Behar being the b!tch, that she seems to be, kept pushing him leading to Tweed being even ore frustrated.
I have to admit that is one of the most uncomfortable interviews I have ever seen. You can tell that Shannon Tweed just wants to be done with him and move on, but can’t because of the show obligations. I don’t know why A&E is letting (making) them do press together for their reality show because you can feel tension through the TV screen and makes you want to turn away. I seriously felt the chill between them and I am sure I am not alone. Brrrrrr.
It is sad that a couple that has been together for almost 30 are falling victim to reality show curse.
BTW I wonder how much of that HNL will actually air on the show tonight? Because there is a lot that needs to be edited out.
We have seen some scary homes on Hoarders, but I think this season’s finale that airs on A&E Monday at 10p will be the scariest one of them all. I say that because Glen’s place seems like a real house of horrors as he hoards over 2,500 rats. You read that right, he shares his space with over 2,500 rodents and doesn’t see a problem with that. I am totally freaked out by this episode just from the promo, I don’t know how I am going to be able to watch the full show. Having said that for some reason I am drawn to watching it like a mouse is to cheese.
A&E teamed up with Dee Snider to give us a behind-the-scenes look into the family life of the lead singer of Twisted Sister and what it is like to be Growing Up Twisted with the Sniders. The We’re Not Going to Take It singer has been with his wife for 34 years, since she was 15 and he was 21. Together they have 4 kids and their oldest son Jesse Blaze recently made them grandparents. Sounds like a normal family, but when you watch the reality show you will find out they are anything but. But the one thing they are, is very loving. At one point in the season premiere episode Suzette decides to do something special for her husband and dye her heart shaped pubes hot pink. Well she made the mistake of telling her girls and they tell her 3 sons. Well when they hear the news, they confront her on it and find an interesting way to tell her they think it is gross. Gotta love a family that can laugh at stuff like that.
BTW can you believe his wife is almost 50 years old and can still look and move like that? I wish I can say the same when I am her age.
So tune in to Growing Up Twisted tonight and every Tuesday at 10p on A&E for a family you wish you could be Growing up Twisted with!
On March 21st A&E will debut their latest train wreck of a reality show and this one belongs to Kirstie Alley and her Big Life. After watching the trailer for that show, I can’t wait for it to premiere like she can’t wait for the cookies to come out of the oven.
