Trial & Error pleads its case tonight and will win your heart!
August 9th, 2018 under NBC. [ Comments: 1 ]


After a week off, Trial & Error is back with two new episodes on NBC at 9p tonight and there is going to be a big development in the case.

Things are not looking good for Lavinia Peck-Foster (Kristin Chenoweth) when Dwayne Reed (Steven Boyer) breaks down on the stand and declares to everyone that she killed her husband. She then tells lawyer aka Josh (Nicholas D’Agosto) that he needs to fire his right hand that fingered her in the courtroom.

Now Josh has to fire him and prove his client did not kill her husband. Will he be able do it? When new evidence presents itself to him, he might be able to get her off. And in more than one way if she has her way.

What happens next you won’t see coming. And that gets us into the second episode, but I cannot tell you anything about it. Well, I can tell you it is funny.

I like shows that make me laugh. When they make me think about why I am laughing and Trial & Error does just that. It is so witty and stupid at the same time, and that is why it is so brilliant. It is in the vain of movies like Airplane and Naked Gun. You will never get all the jokes during the first viewing, so you have to watch it a few times to get them all.

Earlier this week, NBC made the mistake of not ordering a third season of the comedy. That means, it is up for grabs and the show’s creator told me he wants to shop it around to streaming sites like Netflix, Amazon Prime or Hulu. If ever a broadcast show was perfect for binge viewing, it is this one. You can hit that 10 seconds back button and catch that joke you just missed. That or play it again to see if they really said that. They did, FYI.

So tune in tonight for the best comedy you are not watching. If more people watch, then we will get a season 3 and 4 and…

NBC makes time for a Timeless series finale
July 31st, 2018 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]


Out of all of the shows that were cancelled last season, Timeless has the biggest and most vocal fanbase. Clockblockers fought really hard to save our show and it worked! NBC announced today that they will give the beloved time-traveling drama a 2-part series finale during the holidays to give us closure! But be prepared because they warn it will be an emotional goodbye.

Executive producers Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke wished the show could have gone for as many years as the team traveled, as in centuries. Then they added, “We’re thrilled to take the Lifeboat out for one last spin and bring closure to our story. The studio, network, cast and crew are all doing this for one reason only: the fans. Because they deserve it. Because the fans made this happen and we thank them for their passion, support and helicopters. So? You guys want to get Rufus back or what?”

We want Rufus back. While like the EPs said, it is a not another season. It is still better than nothing.

I am going to do a happy dance to Robert Johnson. If you do not get why I said that, then you are not a Clockblocker!

Sincerest thanks to everyone who made this happen. The power of the fans! Now can someone let The Last Man on Earth do the same thing because I want to see how Will Forte’s description of what was going to happen next, happen?

How excited are you that the show will get a proper ride off into time?

UPDATE: Abigal Spencer recorded a thank you message for the fans. To see it and her spill coffee all over herself, then click here!

Trial & Error is back with another trial and a lot more comedic errors!
July 19th, 2018 under Kristin Chenoweth, NBC. [ Comments: none ]


After what seems like forever, Trial & Error is back on NBC tonight at 9p and you do not want to miss the first two episodes.

Josh Segal (Nicholas D’Agosto) is no longer a North Easterner because he has moved to East Peck. What is the best housewarming present you get for him? How about a new murder case for him to work on?

Lavinia Peck-Foster (Kistin Chenowth)is town royalty. Everyone loves her because she uses her money to spoil them. She can literally get away with murder. Or can she? That is the question we will all be asking after her husband’s dead body is found in the trunk of her car. Out of all the lawyers in East Peck (there is no one else), she asks Josh to defend her.

He is more than excited to take on her case, but his employees are not. If he gets her off, they are heroes. If she is found guilty, then they will all become North Easterners before you can say North Easterners.

Carol Anne Keane (Jayma Mays) is still the opposing counsel and she has other stuff on her mind and someone else in her belly. Is it Josh’s? We do not know, but we do know that these two will still have their hot and cold relationship that is extremely hot in the courtroom.

Josh’s coworkers Dwayne Reed (Steven Boyer) and Anne Flatch (Sherri Shepherd) are also back and they are really nervous about this case. Will the murder board get them excited? Murder board, murder board, murder board! Yes, we still have the murder board. Anne still has her odd idiosyncrasies while Dwayne still has his mishaps.

And then there is East Peck, it is a city like no other. Which is why we love it so much!

Trial & Error is the type of show you need to record and watch a few times to get all the jokes. I am pretty quick on catching jokes and even I don’t get them all the first time. They are very smart, but they do not make you feel stupid. They make you think and laugh at the same time. It is what a real comedy needs to be! So watch the first two episodes tonight for the first time. Then watch them over and over again until the next two episodes air next week. Rinse and repeat until the second season finale.

The last show to get cancelled from the 2017-2018 TV season is…
July 1st, 2018 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]


In May 2017, the networks announced which shows they were bringing back and some new ones that were joining them. Several heard their names again a year later, some did not and a few others were left waiting to find out their fate. The last one to find out if had a future or not, found out on Friday. That show might have been called Champions but it did not win a second season from NBC.

And now we move on to the new season that starts in less than 3 months. There are some good shows, some bad ones and one that is so depressing you will need to make a therapist appointment right after you watch it. And that was not the show that made me cry…

Timeless’ time ran out
June 22nd, 2018 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]


NBC wanted to cancel Timeless after its first season, but the fans rallied hard to get it a second one. The show changed things up for the second season and it was for the better. Sadly, the ratings were worse. Therefore, NBC decided that they had no more time for the show about time.

The show’s creator Eric Kriptke wrote, “Gutted by this, guys, I know you are too. Behind the scenes, Sony has been trying hard to set it up elsewhere, but no luck so far. I think this 2 hour movie is our best shot. We’re ready to make it if @nbc really wants it. Let ’em know how you feel. #clockblockers.” And they he added, “THANK YOU cast, writers, crew and most all all, the #clockblockers for your brilliance & passion. I love you all. I was proud to bring a little positivity & inclusion into this f-d up world. I will keep my personal thoughts about network TV private until we get this movie made. One last thing: whether there’s a show or not, we’re all family now. We’re all #clockblockers, baby.”

The show’s other creator Shawn Ryan had this to say about the cancellation, “This is a sad day for the writers, actors, crew and especially the viewers of Timeless. We are all extremely proud of what we made and know that it was more than just a show for so many of our fans. It became a passion and a cause for many of them.We’re proud of the impact @NBCTImeless had on so many people – the students who embraced history as a result of our show, the people who were inspired by our stories of inclusion and acceptance. We saw your tweets and were inspired by you. If NBC is sincere in wanting a 2 hour movie to give much needed closure to our amazing @NBCTimeless fans, we are ready to make it. We don’t want the journeys of Lucy, Wyatt, Rufus and the others to end yet. #ClockBlockers.”

When it comes to how I feel about it, I really hope they get the two-hour movie. The show’s second season was educational besides being fun. They taught me about Robert Johnson and I have been listening to his music ever since. And that is just one of the many examples of why I loved Timeless so much. The cast, the writing and the history lessons. I learned more from Timeless than I did in high school. Granted I didn’t take history in HS, but you know what I mean.
