Extant is out of this world |
| July 9th, 2014 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]
Extant debuts on CBS tonight at 9p and you don’t want to miss one of the biggest television events in recent broadcast TV.
Extant takes place in the near future and Oscar winner, Halle Berry, plays Molly Wood, an astronaut who just spent 13 months in space all by herself. When her doctor (Camryn Manheim) does some tests, she finds out Molly is pregnant. How can someone who has been alone in space for over a year, with no human contact, be pregnant? That is the mystery. A hint of what might’ve happened is revealed in flashbacks throughout the episode, but does that really explain what happened up there?
Now, back on Earth, she gets to spend time with her husband, John (Goran Visnjic), and their “son”. I put son in quotes because the couple has been infertile up until now. Their child, Ethan (Pierce Gagnon), is an experiment that John has been working on. He is a life-size android that is being taught how to feel like you and me. He is being raised as a child, who will become an adult (his data will switch bodies throughout time), so he will learn right from wrong just like us humans.
Since Molly has been gone, he has changed. What does that mean? Can we really raise robots to be just like us?
These are two major plot points in the 13-episode event that’s produced by Steven Spielberg.
Personally, out of all of the things that Spielberg has done on television, I think this one feels the most like a movie. You don’t feel like you are watching TV between the acting, the cinematography and the story; you feel like you’re in a movie theater. Because of that, you will want to see what happens next.
CBS put a lot of money into this show, and it shows. Just because you throw a lot of money towards a production doesn’t mean it’s going to be good. Extant is not good, it is excellent. So tune in tonight and every Wednesday for the rest of the summer for a series unlike any other.
Kat Dennings breasts will light up your life! |
| June 30th, 2014 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]
Thanks to Kat Dennings‘ 2 Broke Girls waitress uniform, we know that two parts of her body are not broke. Those 2 things are her left and right boobs.
Now, thanks to Instagram, we know that they are special too. That’s because her nipples light up and they can lead you wherever she wants you to go. Because let’s be honest, you will follow her beams anywhere.
I wish my breasts did that, but sadly they don’t. Do yours?
Reckless is Unforgettable |
| June 29th, 2014 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]
Reckless is so hot, that the CBS legal drama that debuts tonight at 9p could only air in the summer.
Jamie Sawyer (Anna Wood) is a Chicago lawyer who recently moved to Charleston, SC and she has her work cut out for her. Her main opposition is recently divorced father of two, Roy Rayder (Cam Gigandet), who is just as good in the courtroom.
While their first case is kind of ordinary, the second one will play out throughout the season.
Lee Anne Marcus (Georgina Haig) is married and she works for the police department, and she is having an affair with another officer. One night when she was drunk, she was videotaped on top of a car sleeping with that officer and a few of the others on the force. The video is somehow sent out to the department and she loses her job. So now she hired Sawyer to sue the force because she is the only one who lost her job. Her lawsuit exposes the fact that the police department has corrupt officers working in it and some will do anything to keep her quiet. How far will they go? We will just have to tune into this steamy show each week to find out.
Then at 10p Carrie (Poppy Montgomery) is back to solve cases on Unforgettable in a way only she can.
Tonight she goes undercover in a counterfeit ring to capture a murderer. Even though she knows everything, will it be enough to fool the mystery woman who doesn’t care who she kills? You will have to watch this suspenseful episode to find out.
Kat Dennings gets banged! |

Kat Dennings decided it was time for a new look, so she decided to try some bangs. You know what, I hope she keeps them for the new season of 2 Broke Girls because she looks gorgeous with the new do. What do you think of her new hairstyle?
CBS’s new fall schedule is… |
| May 14th, 2014 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]
CBS announced their fall schedule and they made a lot of changes. Gone on Monday is the second hour of sitcoms and NCIS: LA leaves the mothership to join Mondays. NCIS: LA is being replaced by CSI: New Orleans on Tuesday. CSI moves from Wednesdays to Sundays. After Thursday night football, the night pretty much stays the same except with the addition of The McCarthys. The big news is that Two and a Half Men will be ending this season. So it is 12 and out, which is still very impressive. Friday sees a big change with Amazing Race starting the night off. Finally, Sunday sees The Good Wife at the same time, but it will be sandwiched between two dramas including CSI at 10p.
Missing from the schedule is The Mentalist and The Odd Couple with Matthew Perry and I am sure they will be on before we know it.
When it comes to How I Met Your Dad, we won’t be meeting him. CBS was not happy with pilot and the producers would not reshoot it. Personally, I think they made the right choice because How I Met Your Mother was not that good its final seasons.
What do you think of the CBS schedule? I think it will be interesting to see what happens because this is the most changes they have made in a while.

It doesn’t take a Mentalist to know CBS is The Crazy Ones for cancelling this show |
| May 10th, 2014 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]
CBS announced the fate of all of their bubble shows today and only one of them got picked up. The Mentalist will be back next season, but Hostages, Intelligence, Friends with Better Lives, Bad Teacher and the lovable and brilliant The Crazy Ones won’t be. Even though the latter was one of the top 10 most watched comedies on broadcast TV this season, CBS didn’t see what I and so many others saw in it. Which is a shame because it was so nice to have Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar back on TV in a show that suited both of them perfectly.

Shemar Moore’s butt exercises leave me wanting moore! |
| April 16th, 2014 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]
We all know that Shemar Moore has some of the most arresting abs in show business, but did you know that his butt is just as criminal. The actor shared some videos of himself working out today on Instagram, and I couldn’t stop watching the one where he does Spiderman Push-ups. There is just something so hypnotic about it. Don’t you agree?

Get your tissues ready for tonight’s The Good Wife |
| March 30th, 2014 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]
Tonight at 9p on CBS The Good Wife continues what they started after last week’s shocking development.
The episode actually backtracks and starts with Eli (Alan Cumming) getting that call from Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) telling him that Will (Josh Charles) had been shot and killed. So we see how Alicia (Julianna Margulies) reacted when she heard the news. Then we see Diane (Christine Baranski) tell the office about Will’s death and how they handle it. Now that Alicia grieving, she goes back to Lockhart & Gardner to get comforted by the people she knows who know him. While she is there, she checks her messages and finds out that Will left her one final message. The call was interrupted, so she doesn’t know what she wants. She goes on a mission to find out what he wanted to tell her. Will she be OK with what she finds out?
You will have to tune into this heart-wrenching episode to find out. I don’t watch the show, but I saw last week’s and tonight’s episodes; and I can tell you I got so emotionally involved I couldn’t stop crying. So imagine how you will react if you are a fan of the drama.
