The Mick makes us laugh til we cry, This Is Us is only about Kevin!
November 14th, 2017 under Fox, This Is Us. [ Comments: none ]

If you thought that last week’s sex scene between a blob and a human on The Orville was the strangest thing you were going to see on Fox this month, you were so wrong. Tonight’s The Mick on Fox at 9p, will shock you and shock you again until they do something that will make scream Jesus’ full name. Once you get the “st” out, you will be laughing so hard that you will be in pain. Then you will watch it all over and over and over again.

Before we get to that moment, let me tell what you the episode is about. BTW did I tell you it is the best one of the show’s run so far? It is like they threw caution into wind and whatever the censors let them get away with, they did. And they get away with a lot.

Back to the episode, Mickey (Kaitlin Olson) takes Sabrina (Sofia Black-D’Elia), Chip (Thomas Barbusca) and Ben (Jack Stanton) to their great grandmother’s 100th birthday party, but their grandmother won’t let the 4 of them plus Alba (Carla Jimenez) and Jimmy (Scott MacArthur) in to the party. When their great grandmother sees Mickey, she thinks she is an old friend from Coral Gables. Therefore, she lets them stay for the party. In fact, she asks them all to stay for the weekend. Since evil grandma is going away, they invite themselves over. What is the worst that can happen? It happens and it does not stop happening. You just have to see it to believe because I saw it and I do not believe it. But that does not mean you will not laugh until your pants are soaking wet. It is so wrong and yet so so so right.

In other words, I am preparing you for an episode that is one of the funniest half hours of television so far.

If you want to watch something more serious, then tonight’s This Is Us on NBC at 9p is for you. For the first time in the show’s run, the episode will be just about Kevin.

It has been a few days since Kevin (Justin Hartley) broke up with Sophie at her doorstep. He has been staying at a hotel and has not left his room since he got there. All he has been doing is drinking in that room. Until he gets a phone call that he is getting honored at his high school the next day.

He heads back home, and being their brings back memories with his father (Milo Ventimilgia). The good times they had when he was playing football and the bad one he had when he broke his knee during the game.

That is the past, his present is spiraling down faster than the Titanic went under. He is a star at his alma mater and they have him up on a pedestal. But we can see he is at his lowest. He is calling out for help, but no one is listening. Will anyone finally hear him?

It all comes to a conclusion that will set up for next week’s episode that is all about Kate (Chrissy Metz). Then the Big Three event concludes the following week with an episode that is all about Randall (Sterling K Brown).

One more note about tonight’s episode, I have never seen Hartley act as masterfully as he does tonight. He gives the performance of a lifetime and then some. The Emmy people will have to recognize him for this episode because it is that phenomenal. There is one scene that will rip your heart out as you get to see what his character is all about it. This is a must not miss episode, so don’t miss it.

Maze-cenrtric Lucifer, The Gifted runaways and The Good Doctor kisses and tells
October 16th, 2017 under ABC, Fox, Lucifer, Marvel Comics. [ Comments: none ]

I love Lucifer (Tom Ellis) but tonight at 8p on Fox, the episode is mostly about his even more devilish ally Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt). I do not what took them three seasons to do this, but good things come to those who wait.

Maze is working as a Bounty Hunter and she has to cross over to Canada to catch her guy. Ben Rivers (Chris McKenna) is a very charming murderer, who uses his looks and appeal to get his women. Since she is Maze, she will do a lot illegal things to capture him. Once she does, she sees herself in him. There is a reason why and that reason might be the end of them. Will it be?

Seriously, this episode is so much fun that I could honestly see them spinning off Mr. and Mrs. Mazikeen Smith as a series. Whether you watch the show (which you should) or not, you will enjoy tonight’s show.

Tonight at 9p on Fox, we learn even more about the Mutants on The Gifted.

Blink (Jamie Chung) is still dealing with the after effects of overusing her powers in the pilot. One the drawbacks is that she can no longer create portals. Thunderbird (Blair Redford) and Dreamer (Elena Satine) are going to work with her to help her regain her power.

Something they are going to need sooner rather than later. That’s because the Struckers (Amy Acker, Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White) ran away in order to rescue their patriarch (Stephen Moyer). They will go to Reed’s brother, who’s son accidentally reveals that they are staying with him. That is when a bunch of locals try to take them in. Thankfully, some of the Gifted come to rescue the Strukers at that very moment. Now they are on the run and need their Mutant abilities to save them.

When it comes to Reed (Boyer), he has been recruited to bring in Mutants in order to save his family. Now that he knows his kids are both Mutants, will that cause the District Attorney to change his outlook on them?

It is another adrenaline ride of episode and that is why people are loving this Marvel Comics show.

Finally at 10p but over on ABC, it is time for The Good Doctor. A medical drama so good, people cannot stop kissing and telling about it. Which is something we are going to learn about Dr Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) tonight.

Dr Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez) is assigned a pregnant patient, whose fetus has a tumor that is blocking its flow of blood. The parents-to-be came to Melendez because they know he has done the surgery that can save their baby. The surgeon thinks it is too risky for the mother, but Murphy comes up with a different way. Much to the dislike of his attending.

Therefore, Melendez sends him and fellow Resident Claire Browne (Antonia Thomas) down to deal with another case. An 18-year-old woman who has a boil insider of her vagina. Turns out it is not a boil, but a lesion and they have to operate. Also turns out this teen has an interesting job. One that will tell us more about Dr Murphy’s love life. He almost kissed a girl once and we will see that tonight.

There is a reason why The Good Doctor is TV #1 new show. It is because it is that good. Even if you missed the first three episodes, you can catch up on them after you watch tonight’s episode. You will be as hooked as the millions of people who are already loving this medical drama.


Is The Mick trying to be more like This Is Us?
October 12th, 2017 under Fox. [ Comments: none ]

This season The Mick is up against This Is Us and it has seen a little bit of a ratings loss. Therefore, Fox came up with a plan to improve the funny as hell sitcom’s rating. They released a commercial for it, to make it seem like it is more like the NBC drama. Which it is so the complete opposite. One is wholesome, the other is not. One is about a loving family, the other is not. One makes you cry from sadness, the other makes you cry from laughter. But they do have one thing in common, both of their homes burned down. Since they are alike in at least one way, maybe you will check out the comedy, this Tuesday at 9p, that is about an awful aunt who gets stuck taking care of her extremely wealthy and beyond bratty niece and nephews because their parents went to federal prison. Like I said it is not like This Is Us for the most part, but that does not mean you do not need tissues to watch it!


Rocky causes things to be Rocky on This Is Us, The Mick goes to jail
October 10th, 2017 under Fox, This Is Us. [ Comments: none ]

For weeks we have heard that Sylvester Stallone was going to be on This Is Us, and tonight on NBC at 9p he makes his debut. Let me tell you he is completely lovable on this episode and it will make you want to be friends with him!

But before we get to that, Kevin (Justin Hartley) brings Kate (Chrissy Metz) to the set of his new movie and they meet Mr Stallone. While Kevin works on his lines, Kate talks to Sylvester Stallone and reveals what a fan their dad is of his movies. That causes the actor to bond with her. When it is time to film, Stallone brings that up to Kevin and it throws him off. Now Kevin and Kate are fighting.

While the twins are fighting, 40-somethings Jack (Milo Ventimilgia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) are trying to make love. She wants to get things back to where they were before that night. Will that happen?

Then Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) finally get a foster child, who is more like a teen. She is not that they wanted and they are not what she wanted. Will they send her back?

It is another emotional ride on This Is Us tonight and that is why we love this drama more and more every week.

Also at 9p, but on Fox is The Mick. Sabrina’s (Sofia Black-D’Elia) mom (Tricia O’Kelley) is trying to get in touch with her daughter, but she keeps ignoring the calls. So Mickey (Kaitlin Olson) takes the family for a day trip to the prison where their parents are. Sabrina and Mickey go to visit Poodle. While Chip (Thomas Barbusca) and Ben (Jack Stanton) go with Jimmy (Scott MacArthur) to visit their dad (Laird Macintosh). Prison has not been good to him and Chip wants to fix things. Meanwhile, Poodle wants to fix things with her daughter, but Mickey is the one who wants things to be fixed between her sister and her.

What happens next, is something you will only see on The Mick. Therefore be prepared to laugh at things you should not. That and to declare that Jack Stanton is the cutest kid on television!


Lucifer and The Gifted are our gift! 9JKL is throwback to funny comedies!
October 2nd, 2017 under CBS, Fox, Lucifer, Marvel Comics. [ Comments: none ]

Lucifer is back on Fox tonight at 8p and so are his wings. Lucifer (Tom Ellis) wakes up alone in a desert after being kidnapped and now he needs a way back to Los Angeles. Once he gets there, he goes to see Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) and she did not even know he was missing. Turns out he is was not the only one who was kidnapped, but he was the one who survived. Now they have to investigate the other victim’s murder.

Meanwhile, Lucy and his brother, Amenadiel (D. B. Woodside), have a heart to heart about who is their father’s aka Gd’s favorite son. This will make things awkward for them and they don’t have mom to bring peace between them since she is in her own universe.

Back to the force, there is a new sheriff in town aka lieutenant and his name is Marcus Pierce (Tom Welling). He does seem to like Decker, Lucifer or Detective Dan (Kevin Alejandro) and you can tell he is going to give the three of them trouble.

Oh and did I mention that Lucy finally decides to show his true face to Decker?

I seriously cannot express how much I love this show. It is one of the very few shows I must watch live because I cannot wait to for each new episode. It has everything you desire!

Then at 9p, The Gifted, based on the Marvel comic, debuts and it will quickly become one of your favorite shows. In the world of The Gifted, there are people who are just people and people who are mutants who have powers. Those abilities cause them to be on the run because the government wants to lock them up and throw the key.

They have abilities like Blink (Jamie Chung) who can transport herself by opening a whole in the air. Polaris (Emma Dumont) who can control magnets. Eclipse (Sean Teale) who can manipulate protons. Because of their abilities, they have a knack of running from the law and protecting their own kind.

Something the Strucker family is going to need. Reed (Stephen Moyer) the patriarch is a district attorney who puts the mutants away. He is going to be confronted with the fact that his son and daughter are just like the people he locks up. Andy (Percy Hynes White) can bend metal. When he is confronted by the school bullies, he loses it and exposes himself in a Carrie at the prom type of scenario. His sister, Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) can control air and water to protect herself and uses that get her brother out of the school. When they get home, they finally tell their mom (Amy Acker) the truth. Just as they do, the cops come knocking on their door. Instead of turning them in, she flees with her family. Now they are run from the law and the other mutants team up with them.

Remember how good Heroes was its first season, this is very comparable. It is suspenseful and full of action. It is a perfect fit with Lucifer and because of that Fox has a very strong Monday night. Stronger than the mutants.

Then over at 8:30p on CBS, Mark Feuerstein’s real life comes to on 9JKL. Back when he got the job on his last show Royal Pains, he moved back to NYC and lived in between his parents and brother. His family did not have boundaries then and they are not going to have them now.

His mother (Linda Lavin) and his father (Elliott Gould) love having their son home. So much so they are not going to leave him alone. They will be there when he wakes up, comes home and basically anytime he is in the apartment. His brother (David Walton) and sister-in-law (Liza Lapira), who live on the other side of him, are just as bad. Good thing have a cute baby because so he cannot remain mad at them.

In fact, he cannot remain mad at any of them because afterall they are family and family is always there for you. But they sure as hell can be annoying as hell. And for us, as funny as hell. I can see this being my family which is why I live 3,000 miles away from them. It is that relatable factor that will have you enjoying this show and laughing with them. That and it is truly hilarious.
