As if we needed another singing competition show?
July 3rd, 2017 under Fox. [ Comments: none ]


We have The Voice on NBC, ABC stole American Idol from Fox and now Fox reportedly wants back in the singing competition business.

According to Variety, they are working with Armoza Formats to bring yet another show with people vying to be instant Rock Stars. The trade described the show as, “one in which the show’s four finalists are selected in the premiere episode. New contestants then challenge the finalists each week to steal one of the four slots. The winner is named in the season finale.”

I just cannot care. I am so over all of these singing shows that are the same thing but with different faces. The contestants sing, the judges try to be funny and then a winner is chosen only to never be heard from again. We do not need another program of this type. I hate to say this, but I am also learning from ABC’s retro lineup that not everything old is new again nor should it be. Therefore, I do not know what the solution is, but I do not think a singing and/or dancing competition is the answer.

Do you think it is time for the fat lady to sing or should she keep belting it out?

Christina Milian talks about SuperHuman
June 12th, 2017 under Fox. [ Comments: none ]


While shows like The Voice and American Idol are looking for people who use their voices to wow us and So You Think You Can Dance seeks people to amaze us with their feet, SuperHuman showcases people’s talents that come from the use of their brains. Tonight at 9p on Fox, be prepared to be blown away by the extraordinary things people can do with their brilliant minds. Things like look at 2 huge walls full of the same matching colored tiles and figure out which of the three of those thousands of squares are not the same. That is just one of the amazing things that someone can do that you never thought was possible.

Each week, five people with skills in memory, hearing, taste, touch, smell, sight and more than that will show off their mind blowing talents, be judged by Mike Tyson, Dr. Rahul Jandial and Christina Millian and finally the audience will decide who will go home $50,000 richer.

While their pockets are getting bigger, so are our brains as we try to understand how they do the SuperHuman things that they do. It is a reality competition show unlike any other and you don’t want to miss the show hosted by Kal Penn.

Back when they were filming the show, I visited the set and spoke with Christina Millian. We talked about the show and what she has learned from it.

What attracted her to SuperHuman?
CM:
I thought there was something special about it because it highlights our average every day person that realize they have these special skills. It is their underrated skills that put a spotlight on them.
Just to see these special skills that people have is pretty incredible and fascinating to be part of and watch in person.

What SuperHuman abilities stood out to her?
CM
: I am learning that there are a lot people with great photographic memories. But I have seen some people do some interesting things with binary codes.
This young boy, he had all of these 4X4 squares and he added everything up to 182 with a bunch of random numbers. They said for over 3,000 years mathematicians have been having problems with the 4X4 box and getting a specific number. To see a kid 15 years old to do that like it was nothing is pretty fantastic.

What is her SuperHuman talent?
CM
: I think my SuperHuman talent and what puts me on that stage is my ability to multitask. I focus on my passions and have no limit to do what I want to do and create full and complete strategies, teamwork, go from point a to point b. Of course, there is some difficulty but there is a lot of drive behind it.

Has she learned anything by doing the show?
CM:
I am learning that actually there is a lot of different ways my memory could be used. I can actually associate something I normally would forget with something that is personal to me that way it is easier for me to remember.

Therefore, use your memory association to remember to watch SuperHuman every Monday for the next 8 weeks.

The clock stop for 24: Legacy
June 7th, 2017 under Fox. [ Comments: none ]


Even though Fox debuted the 24 reboot after the Super Bowl and it should have been a hit, it was not. Therefore, their decision to cancel 24: Legacy should not come as a surprise. Granted according to Entertainment Weekly, this is the first show to be taken out in the first quarter since 1995. The last show that premiered after Football’s biggest night to not be renewed for a second season was a show called Extreme. Don’t remember it? That is why it only lasted for one season.

When it comes to 24’s legacy, the network says it is not dead yet and might come back at a later date.

Are you sad the show bombed? I am not because I could not even finish the pilot. It was too boring and confusing for me.

Lucifer ends the season with a bang
May 29th, 2017 under Fox. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at 9p on Fox, it is time for the Lucifer season finale. It is an episode that was a whole season in the making.

Now that Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and his brother Amenadiel (D. B. Woodside) finally have all the pieces of the sword, will they return to Heaven? To make matters worse, their mom (Tricia Helfer) is ready to explode, literally. Her human shell is falling apart and her time on Earth is expiring faster than a carton of milk. Charlotte goes to Dr Linda to fix her up, so that her illumination won’t kill any more people aka instantly burn them to death. The doctor comes up with a temporary fix, but how long will that last? Especially since she is the lead suspect in a murder that Chloe (Lauren German) is investigating. Time is of the essence and there isn’t much time left and desperation is kicking in for all of them.

Someone will take matters in their own hands to get the truth and sacrifices against their wills be made. All leading up to an epic conclusion and cliffhanger that will leave you saying WTF? As in can someone explain to me what just happened and what is going to happen?

Even though, I don’t understand the final few seconds, Lucifer has grown to be one of my favorite current shows on television. While so many shows have gone down hill, this one gets better with each episode. They know how to use the chemistry with the leads and not screw it up as they add more characters like some other shows aka Sleepy Hollow. As long as they keep that up, I will continue to watch this show live every Monday at 9p when it returns in the Fall.
