The X-Files has It, and an explosive Chicago PD/Fire crossover starts tonight
March 7th, 2018 under Dick Wolf, X-Files. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on Fox, The X-Files does their take on It. A young boy goes missing in a small town in Connecticut and then his body is found in the woods. Because his father is a cop, Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Mulder (David Duchovny) are called into investigate. The locals thinks it is an open and shut case because they think an animal did it, but Fox knows it is something more.

He is right because the kids favorite television characters are showing up and they are killing them. But why? Wait until you see the first creepy character, he has been giving me nightmares for days. He makes Pennywise look lovable. It really something you don’t want to miss out on.

Tomorrow night Chicago Fire celebrates its 100th episode at 10p, but the celebration begins tonight on 10p on NBC with Chicago PD. Platt (Amy Morton) is being interviewed live at a local new station at the same time someone decides to blow it up. She is knocked out, but she survives. She tries to help the few survivors there are until Chicago PD and Chicago Fire to help even more.

Once everyone is out, Chicago PD gets their first lead. As they call him out to him, someone put a bomb in his mailbox and it goes off. He is OK and now he is a suspect for the bombings. There’s only one problem, another bomb goes off. Now, Chicago is on high alert and it is all hands on deck to find this person before they kill again.

That is when Voight (Jason Beghe) asks the Chief (Eamonn Walker) if he can use Dawson (Monica Raymund) and Brett (Kara Killmer) to help him distract a suspect in his house so that can put something on his computer. He refuses because he does not want to put them in danger. But you know these ladies will do anything for the job.

That is where tonight’s episode ends and tomorrow night’s begin. And that is when things really get explosive, so you do not want to miss the two-night crossover.


This Is Us’ Kate lost the baby, Did Chicago Meds’ Dr Charles survive?
November 21st, 2017 under Dick Wolf, This Is Us. [ Comments: none ]

Last week, This Is Us revealed that Kate (Chrissy Metz) suffered a miscarriage and tonight at 9p on NBC, she and Toby (Chris Sullivan) deal with the news in different ways.

Kate chooses to stay busy and go on with her life, but is she really ready to do that? She isn’t and it is causing her to slowly break down. Meanwhile, Toby is taking it really hard and wants to talk to his fiance’ about it. Since they are both handling it differently, it is taking a toll on their relationship. Can their love survive this?

One thing Kate has that Toby doesn’t, is her mom. Rebecca (Mandy Moore) also lost a child and she shares with her daughter and us what she went through for the first time. Making her the most understanding and caring mom on television. She always seems to know what to say at the right time. Although, Kate is not always willing to listen. We will see that when we flash back to the night that Kevin broke his leg when she was a teen. The mom and daughter go throw that typical teenage angst as they wait to find out how Kevin is.

This Is Us delivers another powerful episode as we learn more about Number Two aka Kate.

Then at 10p, Chicago Med is back and it picks up where it left off. Dr Charles (Oliver Platt) is bleeding out after being shot outside the hospital and it does not look like he is going to make it. Will he? It is an intense episode you do not want to miss.

Can I tell you how happy I am that this medical drama is back? It keeps getting better.


Did NBC just announce it cancelled Law & Order: True Crime?
November 7th, 2017 under Dick Wolf. [ Comments: none ]

Matt C noticed in the promo for the season finale of the anthology series Law & Order: True Crime, NBC referred to it as the series finale twice. Since it was supposed to be an anthology series, they could be referring to the case. But then again, the show did OK after This Is Us, and fans of Chicago Fire and Chicago Med (like me) are pissed the former has a new night and we had to wait for the latter.

But here is the biggest problem, The Menendez Murders are not worth 8 hours of television. They are barely worth the 2 hour telemovies they have gotten in the past. It is not NBC’s fault, it did OK when the real case was airing. But it was no OJ. There are not many cases that can keep a viewers interest for 8 hours these days.

It was nice try, trying to copy Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story. But even he is going to hit the wall big time with the Versace murder. That story is barely even a telemovie.


It is unethical how Must See TV tonight’s NBC lineup is!
October 19th, 2017 under Dick Wolf, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

NBC’s night starts off at 8p with Superstore and it will steal your attention. Jonah (Ben Feldman) walks in on a man robbing the store’s backroom of money and does nothing about it. As the crook is running away, Dina (Lauren Ash) tramples him and he is arrested. She thinks she did a good thing until the Jeff (Michael Bunin) the district managers says she did the wrong thing and Jonah did the right one. That causes tension between the two. Even more so, when Jonah tells Jeff that Dina has been bullying him. Jeff writes up Dina and she challenges Jonah to fight. Who wins? Let’s just say one person comes up on top!

Then at 8:30p, it is unethical how good The Good Place is tonight. Chidi (William Jackson Harper) is teaching Michael (Ted Danson) ethics. Something that is very hard to do when the student is an evil demon. Feels like it will never happen until Michael comes up with a solution. He decides that they should live the ethical problems that Chidi has been giving him to study. Like what happens if are driving a runaway trolley and you can switch tracks, would you stay on the track with 5 workers or the one with only one person on it. What if you knew that one person? And so on. Therefore, Michael puts Chidi and Eleanor (Kristen Bell) on the track in that trolley and now that have to make that decision as we do the unethical thing and laugh until we hurt. They go through several scenarios each funnier than the last. However, is it enough to teach Michael to be ethical?

Talking about lessons, Janet (D’Arcy Carden) is learning how to be a therapist so that she can help Jason (Manny Jacinto) and Tahini’s (Jameela Jamil) relationship work. Even though it is working, there are consequences for Janet. Huge problems.

Make sure to record this episode because you are going to want to rewatch it several times.

Talking about an episode you will want to keep on your DVR, you are not going to want to erase tonight’s Will & Grace at 9p. There is a knock on Will’s (Eric McCormack) door and it will forever change Jack’s (Sean Hayes) life. A young boy tells Jack, he is Elliott’s (Michael Angarano) son. In case you forgot, Elliott is Jack’s son, so that means Jack is a grandfather. Let that sink in! That is all I am going to tell you about the episode because I want you to enjoy it as much as I did. Because after all, Jack is a grandfather!

NBC closes the night with Great News at 9:30p and Chicago Fire at 10p. On the latter Gabby (Monica Raymund) is out picking up a gift for her husband, when she notices that construction above an underground parking lot is causing it to collapse. She runs inside to warn the people what is about to happen, and then it happens. The lot collapses on top of her and several other people. Now they are in a race against time to get out of there if they want to get out alive. Only problem is is there no way out, no one can hear them and carbon monoxide is starting to pollute the limited air they have. Will they be able to get out of there alive or will they be crushed by all of the concrete above them? You don’t want to miss a single second of this thrilling episode that feels like a throwback to the disaster movies from the ’70s.


Must see TV is back on NBC tonight!
September 28th, 2017 under Dick Wolf, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

After a few years off, Must See TV is back on NBC starting tonight at 8p with Superstore. Since they did not send out a screener, I cannot review how the devastating tornado effected Cloud 9 and all of the store’s employee’s lives. I will be watching it live and so should you!

Then at 8:30p, Michael (Ted Danson) gets to reintroduce Elanor (Kristen Bell) to The Good Place all over again and again and again and again. That is because she keeps figuring out that they are really in the bad place. Well one time, someone else does. But you will have to watch to see who. Anyways, will the Bad Place Four finally figure out a way to get Michael to stop erasing their memories or will they be living Groundhog’s Day in Hell over and over and over again? You have to see tonight’s twist to find out because there is always a twist!

Then at 9p, the most anticipated show of the Fall season makes its debut or should I say redebut? That is because Will & Grace is finally back!!!

I did not watch the sitcom the first time around, so I have been binging it on the NBC app for the last week. I love this show and I wish someone would have told me how funny and enjoyable it was back when it aired originally. Since I have a new love for the beloved show, that means I am going to be very critical of the revival.

And I LOVE it more that Will (Eric McCormack) & Grace (Debra Messing) & Jack (Sean Hayes) & Karen (Megan Mullally) love each other. They found a way to make everything old, new again. In fact, like a good wine, it got better with age. The chemistry between these fours is so rare and comes off so naturally on camera. The things the writers give them to, you can tell they love these so much characters so much that they wanted to do them justice and they did. It is a love fest all the way around from them to us and back to them.

Tonight’s series second-time-around premiere starts off, eliminating all of the changes from the series first-time-around finale. Very quickly we find out that Will & Grace are single and childless, Karen is still rich and Jack is still Just Jack!

Once we get that all cleared up, Grace, who is still a designer, gets the job of a lifetime, thanks to one of Karen’s other girl friends. That is decorating the Oval Office. When I heard the show was going to get political, I was nervous. I get so much politics already on social media that I do not want it my scripted television. That is supposed to be my escape from it all. If that is how you feel, then do not worry because the show touches out in a way that will make you laugh and not get pissed off. In fact, of the three episodes that I watched, tonight’s is the only one that touches it. But they do deal with other issues in the next two weeks that proves that are 11 years older than they were when the show ended. Like cancer and dating way younger.

No matter what they do, they make us laugh. So touch bellies with someone you love and then watch Will & Grace with them for a big ole belly laugh!

Then at 9:30p, I have some great news for you about Great News. Tina Fey goes from behind the camera to in front of it. After the news team screws up beyond belief thanks to Katie’s (Briga Heelan) mom, Carol (Andrea Martin), they get a new boss (Fey). She is a tough no nonsense boss, who wants to change things up. Gone is the traditional newscasts and hello to the one full of opinion and talking heads. Portia (Nicole Richie) is OK with the new format, but Chuck (John Michael Higgins) loses it on air. Will Greg (Adam Campbell) be able to get his anchor team back on track? And what is going on with him and Katie? Carol wants to know to and so do you?

Great News might be fake news, but unlike the real news it is even zanier than what the President watches even though he says he does not. And that says a lot.

Then the night closes out with Chicago Fire on its new night, and we find out who survived the warehouse fire. Did Casey (Jesse Spencer) say I love you to Gabby (Monica Raymund) for the last time? Did Mouch (Christian Stolte) survive his heart attack and the fire? Will Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker) risk the lives of his other firefighters to rescue the ones still inside the fire? All I will say is have the tissues ready. I wish I can tell you more about this episode, but you do not want to know? You want to see it for yourself on the original Chicago show that’s get better with each passing season. That’s right, the show is still on fire. I guess you can say literally!
