Do you miss going to camp? Freeform’s Dead of Summer will make you get over that. The mysterious drama that debuts at 9p tonight is what campfire tales are all about.
It is the summer ’89 and Camp Stillwater is open again after being closed down for 5 years. Several of the past campers are now counselors. Just because they went to camp there, doesn’t mean they know the true history of the place. It is dark, it is scary and it is coming for them. What it is, we don’t know just yet.
Each week we will get clues to the camp’s past and also that of the counselors. They might look like an innocent teens, but each week we will learn their backstory. They each have done something bad and now they might be punished for it. At least that is how it seems.
Deb (Elizabeth Mitchell) is the new owner and she wants everything to go well for the grand reopening. Amy (Elizabeth Lail) is the new girl there, so it makes sense we start with her story first. Alex (Ronen Rubinstein), Jessie (Paulina Singer), Cricket (Amber Coney), Joel (Eli Goree), Blair (Mark Indelicato) and Blotter (Zachary Gordon) are the returning campers. If only they knew what they signed up for…
While they don’t, we do and we will be excited to see what happens to them every week.
Young & Hungry takes flight with a new episode tonight and you don’t want to miss the series’ funniest episode to date. The episode picks up right where it left and Gabi is stuck on the plane with Josh and his psychiatrist. When Gabi sees the two of them together, she assumes the worse and decides not to tell him that she is in love with him. Now she has no alternative but to go to Australia because she doesn’t have enough miles or cash to fly back to San Fransisco.
She calls Sofia from the plane and tells her everything that happened. Adam (Tyler Ritter) overhears the conversation and makes Gabi an offer she can’t refuse. His fiancee left him at the alter and he is on his way to his honeymoon in Hawaii. The hotel where he is staying is couples only. If Gabi pretends to be his wife during the stay, he will buy her a ticket back to San Fran. Of course she says yes! Will this fake couple become a real one?
Also staying at this couples only hotel is Elliot (Rex Lee), his husband Alan (Brian Safi) and Yolanda (Kym Whitley). When they find out the hotel’s policy, they pretend to all be a couple. The hotel is trying to bring in that demographic, so they give them three nights free if they can use them to promote the hotel. Will they get away with it?
So much more happens in this episode that you don’t want to miss. Plus is a laugh riot and who doesn’t need to laugh?
Then at 8:30p, Baby Daddy is back and they make a strong case to watch it. The episode starts off shortly after where it left off.
Ben (Jean-Luc Bilodeau) is dealing with Zoey’s baby daddy coming back in to her life and her dumping him for her former boyfriend. Something that will lead to both men going to jail.
But it is Danny (Derek Theler) who will wind up in court. Riley (Chelsea Kane) is suing him for not telling her that he slept with Sam when they were in high school.
Will the Wheeler brothers get their women back or will their mom (Melissa Peterman) be the only woman in their life? Tune in for another episode that will have you laughing from the beginning until the end.
Then at 10p, The Night Shift is back on NBC with an intense two parter.
The episode starts off with a man looking for his young son that he says his wife brought in. When the hospital doesn’t have any record of the boy, they realize the mother was brought unconscious and the boy is missing. Now they have to find him before it is too late. Then when they do, there will be a reveal you will never ever see coming.
They were not the only ones in the accident, a Lesbian couple, who were fighting at the time, were also injured. One woman is OK, but the other one is not looking like she is going to survive. Doctors finally diagnose what is wrong with her and it has nothing to do with the accident. Can they save her?
Dr. Drew Alister (Brendan Fehr) is stationed over in Afghanistan when a very young pregnant woman comes in with complications. Her husband is an Afghan soldier and he refuses for her to be looked at by them. Dr. Syd Jennings (Jennifer Beals) tries to convince Drew to release her, but it doesn’t work. Now the two of them are in trouble with not only the Afghan military, but their own. What are their consequences?
Then when all of this is resolved next week, the following week’s episode is very powerful. When a White man, who is on trial for killing a Black man, comes in for treatment, the hospital is plagued by protestors. The whole city is filled with riots and several of our doctors will take it to the streets trying to help the injured. An injured White office shot a Black teen and now they have to decide who will go to the hospital first. After they decide, the remaining victim and the doctors will be trapped with no help in sight. Can they save that life and more importantly their own. It is a must not miss episode.
Actually all of The Night Shift episodes are must not miss, so watch it tonight and every Wednesday this summer.
Even though Lucy Hale said that this upcoming season of Pretty Little Liars would be its last, the network has neither confirmed or denied it.
Then today they sent a press release about production beginning on the 7th season of their biggest show and said, “In this upcoming season, the Liars will band together to unearth answers to the last remaining secrets and take down ‘Uber A’ for good in the most romantic season of PLL yet.” While the network didn’t say it is the final season, I think that by saying “last remaining secrets” kind of does. What do you think?
There was one other reveal made in the press release, they announced that Troian Bellisario will make her directorial debut this season. I can’t wait to see what she does when the show ends because she truly has a bright future ahead of her.
Switched at Birth is filming its 100th episode; and as a present to the show, Freeform cancelled it. The network announced yesterday that they are not picking up the show for a 6th season. Which I find surprising because the drama has been doing well and has gotten them a lot of buzz during their run.
Now with this show and Pretty Little Liars ending, not only we will not recognize the network because of its new name, but we also won’t recognize it because none of the shows we know them for are still on the air. Is there any way Paul Lee would consider coming back and saving them?
While I am not taking the news that great, the show’s stars Lea Thompson, Constance Marie, Katie Leclerc and Vanessa Marano seem to be taking it better than me.
Not only does Lea Thompson star on Freeform’s hit show Switched at Birth, she is directing its 100th episode. How is she going to get the male stars to listen to her direction? She is going to do it dressed in sexy black lingerie. Well, at least that is what her character is supposed to be wearing when she is telling them what to do.
When it comes to how she looks in her Director’s uniform, she looks phenomenal. Can you believe she is the mother of 2 women in their 20’s and she’s 54 years old? She looks more like she is her daughters’ ages than her own. She still looks like she did when she played Michael J Fox’s mother when she was a teen in Back to the Future. Seriously, doesn’t she look outstanding for any age?
