Young Sheldon finds love, There’s Johnny is as lovable as Johnny Carson
November 16th, 2017 under Chuck Lorre, Hulu. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at 8:30p on CBS, Young Sheldon falls in love with something that he didn’t know he loved.

The episode starts off with Young Sheldon (Iain Armitage) choking on a piece of sausage and nearly dying because of it, and because of that he is afraid to eat solid food. After a few weeks, his mom (Zoe Perry) and dad (Lance Barber) decide he needs to go therapy. While his parents are talking to therapist, he has to wait in the waiting room. He picks up a comic book, something he thought was stupid, and is immediately hooked. So much so, he walks out of the office to find more, and his parents don’t know where he is gone. Where did he go? How will his parents react? You just have to tune in to find out.

That and to see the toll Sheldon’s quirkiness causes for his older brother (Montana Jordan) and twin sister (Raegan Revord). Thankfully, they have Meemaw (Annie Potts) to talk to about it.

This show has proven to be a sweet comedy that CBS has so desperately needed since they cancelled Still Standing. I still miss that show.

Over at Hulu is There’s Johnny. This is the story of 19-year-old Andy Klavin (Ian Nelson) who lives in Nebraska with his parents who are big fans of The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. He decides to do something special for them and writes a letter to the talk show host asking for an autograph photo and a job.

Then the strangest thing happens, he gets both in the mail. Therefore, he gets on bus and travels to Burbank, Ca. When he gets there, he finds out the show doesn’t actually tape at 11:30p when he arrives at the gate. In his hand he is holding the letter he got from the show, and by some chance of fate the wind blows it into the show’s soundstage. He goes inside and falls asleep.

The next day, he is woken up by Roz (T’Keyah Crystal Keymáh) who tells him the job was all a big misunderstanding and they will pay for his bus ticket back to corn country. Thankfully Joy Greenfield (Jane Levy) walks in at that exact moment and tells Roz she needs a runner. The feisty 24-year-old, whose dad is a big agent, takes him under wing. While introducing him around, he meets the writers who ask him a question that makes it on to the show. Freddie the Executive Producer (Tony Danza) sees something special in the kid, and offers him a real job this time.

From that moment on, luck keeps on working out for this wholesome kid. Joy finds him an apartment and a car. Even when it seems like he is screwed, his niceness seems to save him from the worst predicaments. It is those screw ups that make this sweet kid find a way into your heart instantly. Same for everyone around him.

There’s Johnny takes place in 1972 and they use file footage from the original talk show. On the premiere episode, we see Johnny interview the late great George Carlin and in episode 2 he chats with a young Albert Brooks. Not only that, you see Johnny save Ed McMahon’s butt when a segment goes wrong. They intertwine the current filming with the file footage so smoothly, you almost think they are actually happening at the same time and not 45 years apart.

If you love late night television, you will adore seeing the behind the scenes madness. If you are not a fan of the genre, you will enjoy a show where the little guy keeps on winning. It is the feel good retro show about comedy you have been longing for and did not know it. It is worth subscribing to Hulu just for There’s Johnny. A show I read that EP Paul Reiser says cancelled the network SeeSo where it was originally set to air before Hulu thankfully saved it.

You can binge watch the whole first season on Hulu now.

Castle Rock’s trailer has the most accurate tagline!
October 8th, 2017 under Hulu, Stephen King. [ Comments: none ]


Hulu just released the first look at Stephen King’s series based on his beloved characters all living in one town, Castle Rock.

In the trailer, I saw references to The Green Mile, It, Cujo, Christine and Carrie, but the latter one is only because it was Carrie herself, Sissy Spacek. Anyways when a voice is finally heard in the promo, it says, “You have no idea what is happening here. Do you?” I was like you totally read my mind because I have absolutely no idea what is happening here. Yet, I cannot wait to see it.

Will Making History be history as Time After Time becomes just that
March 29th, 2017 under ABC, Arrested, DC Comics, Fox, Hulu. [ Comments: none ]


While I have been enjoying Leighton Meester on Making History, I am one of the just over 1 million people that has been watching it. Yet even though the sitcom is one of the lowest rated programs on broadcast TV, Fox is still airing it.

But that might be changing because the show’s star was arrested today. According to TMZ, Adam Pally was arrested in NYC on suspicion of smoking marijuana from an e-cig and possessing a small bag of cocaine. Why do I think his arrest will cause the show to be cancelled? If history repeats itself (no pun intende), then Fox will try to separate themselves from Pally because of his arrest. In the past they have not been fans of their stars getting in trouble with the law. But they don’t even have to justify the cancellation because the ratings for this show are beyond a disaster. Barely over 1.5 million people watched the show on Sunday in the overnight ratings and those are some very painful numbers for a show on the Big 4.

Talking about Pally, his other show The Mindy Project was picked up for a 6th and final season over at Hulu today.

Back to time traveling shows, sad news over at ABC. Starting this Sunday, Time After Time has been replaced by Match Game. While the ratings for the Kevin Williamson drama have not been good, they have been doing about twice that of Making History. I was loving the show because I was a fan of the movie, so I am upset that they pulled it from the lineup indefinitely. Why can’t they get rid of American Crime that has been doing worse than Time After Time? Oh yeah, it gets ABC award nominations, and they barely get any.

Finally some good news, Powerless will be back with an all new episode on NBC tomorrow at 8:30p. It had been replaced by Trial & Error repeats for the last two weeks, so I was getting nervous that it was never coming. Thankfully tomorrow, it will be flying back onto our TV screens.

If you have not seen DC’s first sitcom, then you are missing out on a show that is truly Super, man!

Hulu finally has a commercial free option!
September 2nd, 2015 under Hulu. [ Comments: none ]


If you are like me, then you have not subscribed to Hulu because it seems like that have more ads than actual show. Well today, they announced for $11.99 you can get a commercial free version of their site. It is more expensive than Netflix, but they just acquired Epix from Netflix and that might make the cost worth it. For me it is the TV shows that they have that makes me want to pay the extra bucks to have their service without ads. Are you thinking of joining Hulu or is the cost too high?
