Angie Tribeca is back on TBS tonight at 10:30p and in the first two episodes they make fun of the CBS cop shows. I am not going to tell you how, but you will have to see the brilliant way they do it.
The episode starts off with Tribeca (Rsahida Jones) retiring in order to be a full time mom to her child with Giles (Hayes MacArthur). What will happen that will bring back? Let’s just say the reason is crappy.
Now that she is back, she needs to investigate someone who is kidnapping wealthy men who are gamers for fun. On tonight’s episode, the killer takes his newest victim (Timothy Omundson). Just when you think the actor can’t top himself, he does again. And he does it at one point just wearing underwear!
Tribeca and Giles have very little to go ojn, so she has to go to a past collar played by Chris Pine. That’s right, the newest Captain Kirk actually does comedy and does it well. After she gets a lead from him, they are off to next week’s episode where this killer storyline ends.
In the next few weeks, they look into a local college “sports” star accused of hit and run. There’s a reason why sports in quotes. Then the following week, a robotics expert is killed by one of his robots. Be prepared for one of the weirdest sex scenes ever. Heather Graham returns for this episode, but is she the on involved in that sex scene. On May 8th, the sky is falling and a person falls out of the sky. Where did he come from? They will go farther than they have ever gone before to find out.
Angie Tribeca has found a perfect way to mesh procedurals with slapstick humor and because of that this show gets more addictive with each season. Season 3 is so addictive, I might have to check into rehab!
Tonight at 9p on TNT, Sasha Alexander directs her first episode of Rizzoli & Isles and the show came up with an interesting way to take her off the case and give her a little less camera time for an episode.
Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) is called out to a murder at a park, but the victim is missing his phone. When they call the guy’s number, the phone leads them to a second victim who is alive. Not only is he alive, but he has a connection to Isles (Alexander) that no ones about. The two of them were married. Shock and awe!
Since she was married to him, she has to excuse herself from the case. But that doesn’t mean she is excused from her past with him and his evil mother.
Will Isles get back together with her college sweetheart? More importantly who tried to kill him? The latter Rizzoli will be working on. Just when you think you figured it, you find out you didn’t.
It is sad that the police procedural is ending because Alexander proved she is just as good in front of the camera as she is behind it. I would like to see her direct more often because she definitely proved herself with tonight’s episode.
Tonight at 9p on TNT, Rizzoli & Isles celebrates its 100th episode with Jane (Angie Harmon) going to jail.
Before you freak out, she is doing so because she is going undercover to solve a crime. In order to be believable, she gets a tattoo and puts her hair in a braid. She really looks the part as she goes from good cop to bad a$$ prisoner, but will the other inmates believe she is really one of them? Will one of them recognize her as their arresting officer? Did Jane get herself into a situation she can’t get out of?
One thing is for certain, the experience will change her forever. That change is setting up for the series finale on September 7th.
Even though Uncle Buck did better in the ratings than some of ABC’s other shows like The Real O’Neals, the network decided to cancel the summer sitcom. The show’s star James Lesure broke the news on Twitter this morning, hours after the season, now series, finale aired.
I think they made a huge mistake because the remake based on the John Hughes’ film, was actually really well done and funny. Much stronger than O’Neals, Black-ish and Modern Family. They would’ve been better off keeping it as a back up for the midseason because they are going to need it when O’Neals and Downward Dog fail.
Maybe Freeform, Aspire, BET or TV One will consider saving this show. I doubt they will, but this fan is hoping they consider it.
UPDATE: While the news is gloomy over at ABC, TNT and TBS had some sunny news for their viewers. TNT renewed Animal Kingdom for a second season, and TBS picked up both of their sitcoms Angela Tribeca and Wrecked. While I still miss Sullivan & Son, Ground Floor and Clipped, I am happy that TBS is is keeping those comedies on their lineup. They are not as good as the other three, but they are definitely entertaining.
Murder in the First is back for its third season tonight at 10p on TNT and it is going to be an interesting season.
Terry English (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson) are called in to investigate a shooting at a nightclub, but it is no ordinary murder. Normandy is the Quaterback of today and it is 30th birthday. While his girlfriend Popstar Alicia Barnes (Sara Paxton) is singing Happy Birthday to him, someone shoots and kills him. Now everyone is San Fransisco wants to know who killed him and why. The pressure is growing on them to solve this case yesterday, but there is not enough evidence to arrest anyone. Heck there is not even enough evidence for anyone to be a suspect.
If that is not enough for them to handle, Hildy gets news that will change her life forever.
Finally, Chief Prosecutor Mario Siletti (Currie Graham) is arguing with his wife as they drive home from his birthday party. He takes his eyes off the road to fight with his wife and he hits and kills a woman. He knows the system better than anyone else. Will that knowledge be enough to get him off from the DUI and murder? Will homicide be smarter than him?
We will just have to tune in every week for what looks another great season of Murder in the First.
