Manifest delves into the lives of the people who were not on the plane
October 22nd, 2018 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

For the last four episodes of Manifest, the show focused on the backstory of the people who were on flight 828. Tonight at 10p on NBC, we get to see what happened when the flight Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) and Ben’s (Josh Dallas) family landed.

Their parents, his wife Grace (Melissa Roxburgh) and Olive (Luna Blaise) go to check the board to see when the other plane is going to land, only to be to told to come to the gate. For the next five years, they waited but life happened in between. You see how Michaela’s boyfriend and her best friend got together and eventually got married. How Grace met her boyfriend. And how Olive handled not being with her twin brother.

Talking about Cal (Jack Messina), we have not seen how being on that doomed flight affected him. Tonight we will. How will his father handle it? Because Ben wants nothing to do with the voices in his head. It is even worse now that he realizes his son can hear them too.

I know I keep saying this, but there is a reason this is the #1 new show of the fall, It is because it keeps getting better with each episode.


Eric McCormack does a spot on Freddie Mercury!
October 19th, 2018 under Freddie Mercury, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday on Will & Grace, we got a quick glimpse of Eric McCormack doing a Freddie Mercury impression. After the episode ended, he posted a behind-the-scenes video of him performing Queen’s We Are the Champions for the audience.

Forget Rami Maleck, McCormack should have played the singing legend in Bohemian Rhapsody. I could totally see Mercury’s moves through the actor. Did you see it too?


Several of the Glindas and Elphabas take part in A Very Wicked Halloween
October 18th, 2018 under Kristin Chenoweth, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

NBC announced that they are airing A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 Years on Broadway on October 29th with the original Glinda and Elphaba. That means we knew that Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth are going to perform on the magical night.

What we did not know, until after last night’s taping, is that several of the actresses, who have played the role throughout the musical’s run, will also be part of, what I am sure will be, the very Popular broadcast. A notion that I think is a really smart move. One that I will be looking forward to.

Ariana Grande, Pentatonix and Adam Lambert will also be performing songs from the hit musical that has been Defying Gravity for 15 years and counting.


Lots of secrets revealed on Manifest and The Good Doctor tonight
October 15th, 2018 under ABC, NBC, Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 10p on NBC, we get to know two more passengers on Flight 828 on Manifest. One, who we knew was on the plane, and one we did not know about. What secret does that person have?

While we get to know more about the passengers, we also get to know Olive (Luna Blaise). She gets in trouble and calls her mom boyfriend to bail her out instead of her dad. When her dad (Josh Dallas) finds out about his daughter, he goes to rescue her. Only to run into Olive and the man she also thinks of as a father. Can we say awkward?

Talking about awkward, Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh), is assigned to a stakeout with her ex-boyfriend (Alfredo Narciso). When she gets one of her visions, it puts both of them in harm’s way. What will this vision cost them?

All of this leads up to next week’s episode that shows us what happened to people who were not on the plane during those 5 years. There is a reason why this show is the #1 new show, it is that good. If you have not seen it, then catch up on the NBC app.

Also at 10p but over on ABC is The Good Doctor. Tonight, we get to know more about Dr. Glassman (Richard Schiff) as he talks to the ghost of his dead daughter. Since he is sleep deprived after his surgery, his conscience has brought her back to him. The two did not have it easy when she was alive and Shaun (Freddie Highmore) is part of the reason why. Is she there to help her father or to help him break on through to the other side.

Shaun and Dr. Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez) are assigned to a case that tells us a lot of new things about the two doctors. We get to meet the woman that raised Shaun before he moved in with Dr. Glassman. She had an impact on him and that will help him tonight. But not as much as what we are going to learn about Dr. Melendez.

That foster mom is not the only woman who has been in Shaun’s life, Lea (Paige Spara) is the other one. She tells Shaun she is moving out, and he does not know how to handle that. He does something shocking to win her back.

The first three episodes of this season were a letdown, but tonight more than makes up for them.


The first new show to get a full season pickup is…
October 10th, 2018 under Fox, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

We are just three weeks into the fall season and we already have a new show that got a full season pick up. NBC announced today that they ordered the bottom nine from New Amsterdam. Is the news a surprise? Only in I thought that Manifest was going to get that honor.

Other than that, I am excited that the medical drama, which is not all about scaring the crap out of us with scary medical diagnosis, got the title. Out of all of the new shows, this was the first one that I liked and made me cry. In other words, my favorite new show of the fall. As much as I love the medical drama as a whole, I do not think it would be as successful without Ryan Eggold as the lead. He is so endearing in the role as the medical director of the hospital, you cannot help but to adore this show.

New Amsterdam is not the medical drama to be asked to do 22 episodes this season. Today, Fox asked the same of The Resident which is doing well in its second season. My only complaint is there is not enough screen time for Malcolm Jamal Warner. He is my favorite part of the show.

I guess we can say that diagnosis for the 2018-2019 is that is all about the doctor shows. A prognosis I can live with since I watch them all, but Grey’s Anatomy. When it comes to that medical soap opera, they added Josh Radnor to the show. He can do so much better than this.
