Burden of Truth is the summer drama we so desperately need
July 25th, 2018 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]


Let’s be honest, this has not been a good summer for television. But that is all going tonight at 8p on The CW with Burden of Truth.

Joanna Hanley (Kristin Kreuk) grew up in Millwood, but her father suddenly and quickly made them move away 17 years ago. She does not know why he did that. But that was then, now she is a high powered lawyer in his law firm and a case is going to cause her to go back to the small town she grew up in.

The girls at the high school are sick with a mysterious illness. They have convulsions, twitch uncontrollably and cannot concentrate, and no why knows why. They believe that the shot they got for the HPV virus is what is causing their symptoms because it is the only thing they have in common. Joanna does not believe it is the cause and she goes there to protect the pharmaceutical company.

Much to the displeasure of the town. But that is not the only reason why they hate her. That reason has to do with her father and she does not know why.

As she is going around town offering settlements to the girls, another girl becomes sick. Unlike the other victims, she did not get the vaccine. That clears her client, but not the girls.

Even though this is an unwinnable case Joanna is going to do everything in her power to find out what is going on in her hometown. She will have the help of Billy Crawford (Peter Mooney), a childhood friend and a lawyer to help her out. This case is important to him because his niece (Sara Thompson) is also sick.

Each week, they will come closer to finding out why only the girls are getting sick. But it does not offer them a solution. To make matters worse people are going to try to stop their investigation, including her own father (Alex Carter) and boyfriend (Benjamin Ayres). Will she give up or will she keep on trying to get to the Burden of Truth?

When I started to watch the first episode, I was like, great another case of the week legal drama. Which is something I am so over. But as the episode went on, I realized there is so much more to this story and they will be sticking with throughout the first season. I immediately watched the next episode and the one after that and then I was mad when I reached the end of the four screeners they supplied for review. This show is so well done, you will be wanting to know what happens next with each episode. It is like a good book that you cannot put down. It is the type of drama we have been craving to be on broadcast TV in the summer. Most of America is under a heat wave, so tonight, put on the AC and watch Burden of Truth on The CW. I promise you will be instantly hooked. That is my judgement, case closed.

Who revealed they will not be back for Dynasty’s second season?
June 22nd, 2018 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]


When Dynasty ended their first season, several of the characters’ lives were left in peril. Today, one of the actors told E! News that they were not invited back for the second season.

Nathalie Kelley, who played Cristal Carrington, said, “I haven’t read anything for season 2.” Then she explained why, “I know that I end up with a gunshot wound and in a fire at the end of season 1, and I know that I won’t be filming season 2.” She cannot reveal any more than that because she honestly does not know what happens next.

All she said is, “I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying here [in L.A.], and I’ve got my life back.” Wonder what that means? I might be reading too much into that but then again I know I could not wait to get out of Atlanta when I lived there.

Back to her departure, because it is not all about me. I hated her at the beginning of the nighttime soap, but by the end of it, she was my favorite character. I wish they would have killed off Blake instead because his character is so useless and a waste of time. He really does not add anything to the revival like everyone does.

What do think of this spoiler? Are you sad to see her go too?

The CW’s Fall Schedule is…
May 17th, 2018 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]


Monday
8-9 p.m. — Legends of Tomorrow
9-10 p.m. — Arrow

Tuesday
8-9 p.m. — The Flash
9-10 p.m. — Black Lightning

Wednesday
8-9 p.m. — Riverdale

Friday

9-10 p.m. — Crazy Ex Girlfriend

Sunday
8-9 p.m. — Supergirl
9-10 p.m. — Charmed

The CW announced their fall schedule today and there is some stability and some changes. Monday starts off with Legends of Tomorrow, and then Arrow gets another new night. Tuesdays are this same as the midseason. Wednesdays start with Riverdale but ends with the new show All American which is about a football player. Supernatural stays as is, but it gets the new show Legacies. Fridays will include Dynasty and Crazy Ex Girlfriend, which even though I watch, will have a hard time finding an audience. Then there Sunday night a female-driven night with Supergirl and the Charmed reboot.

Now comes the sad news for me, Crazy Ex Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin and iZombie are all going into their final seasons next year and the latter 2 will not debut until the midseason. I am going to miss them, especially Crazy Ex that gave us a lot of songs no one else would attempt to do. Having said that, I wish they would have aired Jane in the fall because I need to know what happens next after that season finale.

Lots of not so Great News today for the evil networks
May 11th, 2018 under ABC, Fox, NBC, The CW. [ Comments: none ]


Fox is doing a big FU to his fans. Yesterday, they cancelled The Last Man on Earth, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mick. Today, they followed it up by doing the same to Lucifer and Exorcist. I could care less about the latter, but the former really hurts. It was a thrilling show with a great ensemble cast that played off each other well. To top it off, the show’s EP Joe Henderson wrote, “We created a season finale with a huge cliffhanger so that there was no way Fox could cancel us. Instead, we’re going to frustrate the hell out of you fans. I’m so sorry for that. #Lucifer.” I think of all of the shows this is the one that has the best chances of getting picked up by someone else. On a positive note, they revived Last Man Standing.

The CW was very nice to me today because they picked up iZombie for a fifth season. Which completes all of their renewals and cancellations. CBS, on the other hand, did not pick up or cancel anything today.

Over NBC they cancelled the heartfelt Rise that they did not do enough to promote. They also gave bad news to Great News. They were also not brave enough to renew Brave.

ABC like every year goes cancelling crazy because I do not think they know what they are doing. They picked up Speechless, Black-ish, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, Splitting Up Together, For the People, Station 19 and How to Get Away Murder for another season. But they cancelled Designated Survivor, Deception, The Crossing, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, The Inhumans, Quantico and Alex, Inc. Basically, they cancelled all the dramas that are not produced by Shonda Rhymes. What type of world do we live in that the fake president gets impeached before the real one? Kiefer Sutherland is a much better president than the one we have now.

As my DVR has a huge party, I am crying tears for all the shows I lost today. Doing a Marlon Brando, “Stella” scream but replacing it with all the shows I lost. And there were a lot.
