Forever debuts on ABC tonight at 10p and this Sci-Fi procedural that is eternally great.
Dr Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd) is a medical examiner and he knows a lot about death. Not because of his job but because in the last 200 years he has died almost as many times and he doesn’t stay dead. Ever since he died, the first time, almost 2 centuries ago, he returns a few hours later, naked, in a nearby body of water. He has died in so many different ways, and that’s what makes him the foremost expert on death.
Tonight, he will die again and this time someone will take notice. That person is Detective Jo Martinez (Alana De La Garza) and she was called in to investigate the crime scene where he died, but his body is no longer there. Martinez will come to him as a cop going to see a ME, but as the case goes on she realizes he was on that train and then he wasn’t. Now she thinks he is the prime suspect, but the evidence he brings to her, clears his name. Since the evidence was so beneficial, she asks for his help to solve the crime. This will be the first of many times they will work together, and that is the premise of the show.
As of now, he doesn’t tell her his secret, but there is one guy who does know it. His roommate, Abe (Judd Hirsch), and you will find out his connection to Morgan at the end of the episode. You don’t want to miss it because it is one of the sweetest moments from all of the new fall pilots.
Sweet is a great word to describe this show. It is a Sci-Fi procedural with a lot of heart and it will win over your heart by the time the credits roll tonight. If not sooner, like it did mine.
After this week, it moves to its regularly scheduled date and time of Tuesdays at 10p on ABC.
Nathan Fillion posted that picture on WhoSay and said, “I keep hearing an echo, but of things I haven’t said. Weird.” Maybe if he wasn’t watching himself that wouldn’t be a problem. Although, let’s be honest, it hard not to watch him when he is on TV.
We know that Nathan Fillion is a little hammy and now we have photographic proof of that. While most of us look like we’re posing for a mugshot in our identification photos, Castle gets super sexy for his. Now that we have seen his studio ID picture, I wonder how he appears in his passport and driver license ones. I bet they are more like headshots than anything else.
Castle is back September 29 on ABC.
Two weeks ago, ABC aired the season finale for the medical drama Black Box. Today, ABC is saying that was actually the show’s series finale according to Entertainment Weekly.
The news is not really surprise because it wasn’t doing well in the ratings and it really didn’t connect with the audience. The latter part is my own opinion. I wanted to like the show but it was so over the top that it was hard to like it. So in a way I am glad it won’t be back.
Rookie Blue is back on ABC tonight at 9p with two episodes and you don’t want to miss this police drama.
The show picks up after almost immediately after the season finale and Sam Swarek (Ben Bass) is being wheeled into the operating room after being shot. Chloe (Priscilla Faia) meanwhile is out of surgery and she is recovering with her husband by her side. Dov (Missy Peregrym) and Andy (Gregory Smith) are told to take a break from the hospital and they go to eat the 24 hour diner nearby. While they are there in plain clothes, the place is robbed and the robbers hold them hostage not knowing they are cops. When something goes wrong, their lives are put in jeopardy. Will they make out of there alive and uninjured?
Then at 10p, spoiler they do, because Andy becomes a TO to a new Rookie. He is over excited about his first day on the beat and because of that he risks his life and Andy’s. Will he learn his lesson or will he quit the force after just one day?
You just have to tune into a drama that gets more arresting each season.
Yesterday on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Rising Star‘s host Josh Groban and experts Ludacris, Brad Paisley and Kesha were on the ABC late night show to talk about their singing competition that debuts on Sunday night. Since the eliminations are live, there has been some confusion how it will all work. So they explained it on the show and Kesha might’ve gotten them in trouble. As she was describing that the audience’s Selfies will appear on the wall, she said that they could take interesting photos. Kimmel made the mistake of asking her what she meant. She responded by saying, “I just, I can’t wait to see a d!ck pic on that wall!” She is not alone because I wouldn’t mind that all. The ABC censors might, but not me. In fact I am going to use a picture of my pussy as a Selfie when I vote on the show. And before your stars get rising, I am referring to my cat!
Seriously, seeing how the three experts and the host interacted with each other on JKL makes me want to watch Rising Star even more. How excited are you for this show?
This Saturday at 9p, Jon Lovitz is going to perform as Billy Idol on ABC’s Sing Your Face Off and do you think he is on the Mony, Mony with his impersonation? I am sure the real rocker will let out a Rebel Yell when he watches the performance and wishes he had a face without eyes.
Now I am basing this review on just this photo, who knows he might be the best Billy Idol impersonator we have ever seen. We will just have to tune in to find out.
On Saturday night, ABC decided to finally air the much delayed Sing Your Face Off and I don’t know why they held this show until now and bury it on a Saturday during the summer. I bet you a penny if they aired it on a weekday during the regular season this show would be huge. It is cheesy and because of that is wonderful!
Each week 5 celebrities dress up as a famous singer and sing like the person they are imitating. So picture Jon Lovitz as Elton John or Lisa Rinna as Britney Spears or better yet Sebastian Bach as Lady Gaga. That’s right the Skid Row singer had a Bad Romance with Gaga! Not only does he have to sing and dance like her, but he also had to wear those heels. How he didn’t fall in them, I just don’t know. But Lisa Rinna can’t say the same thing because when she sat on judge Darryl Hammond’s lap as Britney, the two fell off of the chair and landed on the floor. Something he didn’t mind.
Another plus about this wild and wacky reality show, is John Barrowman is a great host and interacts perfectly with the judges and the celebrities.
I hope more people find this show on ABC this summer, so they will realize their mistake and bring it back in the winter. I’d love to see more celebrities try to do their best Tina Turner or Lionel Richie.
And you don’t want to miss the show this Saturday when Rinna does Katy Perry, Sebastian is Billy Idol and Lovitz gets high as Willie Nelson. Seriously, the show is just that crazy!
What wasn’t shown in the above clip, is judge RuPual teaches Bach how to sashay, and the rocker actually had a rockin’ walk. But as good as Ru and Bach’s walks were, the Arrow star has the best one of them all. So if you want to see it, make sure to watch it on ABC.com. the WatchABC App or on OnDemand. I promise you will laugh your a$$ off when you watch the first 2 episodes. And don’t forget to watch it Saturdays at 9p on ABC.
Tonight at 8p on ABC’s The Middle, The Hecks are leaving Indiana and traveling to Disney World in Orlando for their 1 hour season finale. Since it’s The Hecks they are not going to fly, instead they are going to spend two days in the car together. So imagine what that is going to be like for them with all 5 of them trapped in an automobile for 2 whole days. Especially since they are going out of their way to stop off in North Carolina, so Brick can meet his girlfriend. That’s right Brick (Atticus Shaffer) has a girlfriend, (and he finally uses his Whoop properly) and wait until Frankie (Patricia Heaton) and Mike (Neil Flynn) meet her parents. It goes as bad as you think it would.
Now since it is a long drive, Axl (Charlie McDermott) will take some of the load off of his parents and sit behind the wheel for a bit. So when Sue (Eden Sher) hears this, she asks if she can drive for a part of it too and they make the mistake of her letting her do that. Will they ever get to Disney World?
Well, of course they do, and once they get there, they find out their tickets are for Disneyland in California, not Disney World in Orlando. Will they be able to get in to the wrong park?
You just have to tune into this endearing season finale to find out. There are so many sweet moments in this episode, you will want to hug it as hard as you can.
Last month Josh Groban and Brad Paisley appeared on the cancelled-to-soon-sitcom The Crazy Ones and next month they will reunite on ABC’s reality show Rising Star. Unlike on the TCO where Groban was a contestant on a singing competition that Paisley was judging on, Josh is hosting this one. But just like TCO, Brad is judging the one that debuts on June 22nd. Funny how a TV show becomes a reality…show.
The Country singer will not be alone at the judges’ table, he will be joined by Kesha and Ludacris. And with those names, they already have better panelists than American Idol. And since I am big fan of Groban’s humor, I will say they also have a better host. Sorry, Ryan Seacrest.
So what is Rising Star? Here’s the description from an ABC press release:
ABC’s new reality series “Rising Star” completely reinvents the traditional singing competition as–for the first time ever–the audience has the final say in real time. The show follows a group of aspiring singers as they audition in live performances. During the performances, viewers vote via an App in real time to determine if the singer will advance in the competition. If the voting reaches a certain threshold, the performer moves on, and the performer can see how the voting is going during the performance, so the feedback is immediate and dramatic.
That should be interesting. That is if us West Coasters don’t get screwed in the deal!
