The big story yesterday was how different Renee Zellweger looks and Selfie already had a joke about it. That’s right, ABC’s best new fall comedy, predicted what the joke of the day was going to be weeks before anyone else did.
Eliza (Karen Gillan) went over to Charmonique’s (Da’Vine Joy Randolph) house to help her get ready for her high school reunion, and the phone addict had some sage advice for her friend who was thinking of looking radically different for the big event. She said, “I understand that instinct. But when you completely reinvent your look, you run the risk of people not knowing who the hell you are, i.e. Renee Zellweger, who still looks good.” Then Charmonique added, “But doesn’t look a damn thing like Miss Renee Zellweger. I see what you mean.”
Who knew the writers of this genius show were psychic. We knew they had their finger on the social media pulse, but who knew they would know what the big story of the day would be before even the day knew what it was going to be? Kind of Nostradamusy.
And that, is why, you need to be watching this show, so that you know what is going to happen before it even happens. Well after, but you know what I mean.
Seriously, you should be watching this sitcom because it is sweet, funny and so relatable. The Voice is been there, seen that, same with NCIS, so why not try something new and exciting like Selfie on Tuesdays at 8p. I promise you will love it as much as Eliza Dooley loves herself.
And talking about loving herself, People had a face to face chat with Renee Zellweger. To read what she said, then click here!
Every Monday night at 10p on ABC, we get to see Nathan Fillion play the macho crime writer Castle. It looks like we are going to see a softer side of him coming up on the procedural. Finally, the Firefly star has earned his wings and a tiara too!
Hopefully, this will be his new style from now on because he is due for a change. I mean, how many episodes can he wear a sports jacket, button down shirt and loose pants? He totally needs a makeover. Who wants to see his style begin a new chapter?
Cristela debuts on ABC tonight at 8:30p and you want to watch this funny family show!
Cristela lives with her sister, Daniela (María Canals Barrera), her brother-in-law, Felix (Carlos Ponce) and her mom (Terri Hoyos) and let’s just say the house is crowded. The reason why Cristela hasn’t moved out is because she has been in law school for like ever and now she is looking for an internship so she get a job as a lawyer if/when she graduates. Which at the rate that she has been going, doesn’t seem like it will ever happen. Felix wants her out, but his wife won’t let him. That is until Cristela does something that pisses off Daniela that she too wants her sister out of the house.
Meanwhile it looks like Cristela found the perfect internship, but if she takes it she won’t be able to move out. Since her sister wants her out, will she have to get a real job instead. You will have to tune in to find. That and to laugh a lot and who doesn’t need that on a Friday night after a long hard week?
ABC is the first network to either pick up or cancel a show, and they picked up two of them. TV’s most watched new drama How to Get Away with Murder and TV’s most watched new comedy black-ish will be around for the full season, and the news is not really a surprise. Both shows started off with a bang and they are still going strong.
The only shocking thing from today’s announcement is that Forever wasn’t given a full season too. It’s not the show’s fault it airs after Agents of SHIELD. Hopefully next week, ABC will order the bottom 9 because it truly deserves it.
Tonight at 8p Selfie debuts on ABC, and you will want to take a picture of it so that you can remember how you felt as you watched it. Then you are going to want to post it on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, so everyone can tell you how much they like it too. And if they comment, you can so comment back.
Eliza Doolittle (Karen Gillan) loves to take Selfies and she also loves that she has thousands and thousands of followers who love to see those photos of her. She is all about her outside even if all of it isn’t real. Even her best friend isn’t real because it is her phone and no one can come between them.
Then one day her whole life will change. She finds out the guy she has been dating at work is married. She discovers this when she is on a plane with most of her co-workers, so let’s just say she has to use the plane’s airbags. Yes, that is plural. She decides to go to the bathroom with the full bags and as she makes the trek from first class to the back of the plane, they break open all over her. Now she is covered with her puke, embarrassed and stuck in the bathroom until they land.
When she gets home, she realizes that she doesn’t have any friends who don’t have an @ before their name. To make matters worse when she goes to work the next day, she is the office joke.
During a meeting, her boss praises Henry Higgs (John Cho) for turning things around for a product. He took something that was so heinous and made it OK again.
So Eliza thinks if he can do that with that product, why can’t he do that with her. Therefore, she asks him to help her out by making her a better person. Reluctantly this uptight guy who is the complete opposite of her offers to help her out. A job that won’t be easy for him.
Even though they are polar opposites, they actually have something in common. Both of them are alone and don’t have any friends in their lives. But working together will help both of them out even it seems like an impossible chore.
What it isn’t an impossible chore is watching this endearing show that is a snapshot of today’s viral world. You’d think we should hate Karen Gillan and John Cho because their characters are so reprehensible, but you can’t help but to love them. Just like the romantic comedy.
Then at 8:30p it is time for the sweet Manhattan Love Story on ABC.
Dana (Analeigh Tipton) just moved across the country to Manhattan for her dream job and she is once again living with her college roommate. Since they were in school together, Amy (Jade Catta-Preta_ has gotten married. Amy arranges it so that her brother-in-law, Peter (Jake McDorman) takes Dana out on a date.
Sounds like the dream situation? It isn’t. The publishing company that hired Dana to work for them is going through some financial problems and they are letting people go. The employees that are still there, think she is there to take their job so they make her life hell. That is just her first day.
Now after an awful day, she has to go out with a complete stranger. She’s tired, she looks like crap and she is super emotional.
Peter is one of those guys, you know the one that dates around. He is not used to a girl like her. So when she breaks down during their dinner date, he doesn’t stop her when she leaves and takes her home. Something that would be much easier on him if his brother (Nicolas Wright) wasn’t living with her and his sister-in-law wasn’t so controlling.
Now he has to do it all over again, but will it work out better this time?
You will just have to listen to their thoughts to find out. That’s right, this sitcom is narrated by both leads so you know what is going through both of their minds.
So you get the his and her perspectives on life, love and work in the land of the Big Apple. Which makes this show a must watch because it will make anyone feel good.
Remember that feeling you got when you watched Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks together in movies like Sleepless in Seattle? Well that is the feeling you will get when you watch Analeigh Tipton and Jake McDorman share the screen together. Watch out for Tipton because she is a star if the future.
Last week America fell in love with Scorpion and tonight at 9p on CBS, they will adore it even more.
The team is called in to investigate a case that seems out of their jurisdiction, but it isn’t. The Governor’s daughter has come down with a mysterious virus and only has hours to live. Turns out the virus is manmade and the person who made it is not only targeting the Governor’s daughter but also a few other kids too. Why? That is what they are going to have find out before it is too late.
While that is the case of the week, the episode is so much more than that. You will also see how the members of Scorpion look out for each other as they try to solve the case. While they are all business, Paige (Katharine McPhee) is showing them how to be a little but more caring and basically human. Her ways are starting to rub off them and that is a good thing for them.
Tonight, we also learn more Gallo (Robert Patrick) and it explains a little more about why he is the way that he is. You will have a change of heart towards him when it is revealed.
Scorpion is a fast-paced procedural that keeps you on the edge of your seat and makes you care about its characters. There is no other drama on CBS quite like it and that is why it’s the smart choice on television tonight.
Then at 10p switch the dial over to ABC to find out what happened to Castle.
The episode picks up where the season finale ends and Beckett (Stana Katic) sees Castle’s (Nathan Fillion) car on fire. Once the fire has been put out, they realize that he wasn’t in the car. So where is? There will be clues to his whereabouts, but they aren’t really helpful. They will make him look he is part of whatever it is. Did he have cold feet? Did he stage his disappearance? Will Castle go on without Castle?
You are just going to have to tune in to find out the answers to those questions. And to see what other questions they ask because they ask a few.
To be honest if they are carry on with this storyline for too many episodes, I am not sure how fans will feel about the show. I am going to give it another episode or two, but I am starting to have my doubts. It’s kind of like Sweets’ death on Bones, it might be the final nail in the coffin for some fans. I am not trying to discourage you from watching. I am trying to give you a warning because I would know I would want one.
Resurrection is back on ABC tonight at 9p, and the second season opener doesn’t disappoint.
The episode takes place a week after the season finale, and Agent Bellamy (Omar Epps) has been gone for just that amount of time. He doesn’t remember anything since that day he went missing.
The first thing that he does when he gets back to Arcadia is tell the Langstons, he doesn’t know what happened to their Resurrected son, Jacob (Landon Gimenez). To his surprise, Jacob is there and he is allowed to stay at his home with his parents.
You see, since that day a week ago, all the Resurrecteds, who still have family in Arcadia, are allowed to stay with them. The rest of them were taken away to a mysterious place and we don’t know where that is.
Something Agent Bellamy can’t find out because he has been shut out from his job. The reason why has something to do with what happened to him since he disappeared a week ago. What happened? You just have to tune in tonight and every Sunday at 9p to find out. You also don’t want to miss the interesting twist that the show’s producers added for the second season. A twist, some will see coming and others will need to see for themselves at the end of the episode when it is revealed.
The Middle is back on ABC tonight at 8p and it is a HUGE day for Sue (Eden Sher)! She is finally getting her braces off after 8 years. Which is perfect timing for her because she gets them off just as school starts. Therefore, she can start off her Senior year with the biggest non-metalic smile ever. Does this mean things are finally going to change for her?
She isn’t the only one going through a change, Brick (Atticus Shaffer) and Axl (Charlie McDermott) also have some changes going on too. Brick has a new hobby and Axl has big father/son moment. A moment that will change his relationship forever with his dad (Neil Flynn).
Oh and did I mention they have a total Heck moment when they realize that they didn’t know school started Monday and it’s now Friday? Yeah, that goes just as you think it will. And that is why we adore The Middle.
Then at 9:30p it is time for Black-ish, that is more than funnyish.
Andre Johnson (Anthony Anderson) is an African-American man living in a predominantly White neighborhood with his wife, Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross), and their four children. He feels that his family is losing their racial identity and he will do anything to help them regain their roots. Something that isn’t as easy as do as he thought. Will he learn to make a compromise or just accept the fact that his family is different than him? Each week, he will be tested and we will be in hysterics.
ABC is adding a lot of races to its lineup this season, and everyone of these sitcoms are ones that people of all races and religons can enjoy. So mark your calendars for all of them starting tonight with The Goldbergs and Black-ish.
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.
