Life Sentence is a feel good story even though things aren’t perfect
March 7th, 2018 under Bill Lawrence, Lucy Hale, The CW. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at 9p on The CW, get to know Life Sentence on The CW because you will not regret it. For the last 8 years, Stella (Lucy Hale) was prepared to die and now she is being told her cancer is in remission. Seems like that would be the best thing ever for her and her family? Guess again.

When Stella was diagnosed with cancer, her doctor told her family to make her life perfect for her. That positivity could help her possibly help her beat it and that is exactly what they did for her. When she finished chemo about a year beforehand, they sent her to Paris. While she was there she met her husband, Wes (Elliot Knight). He too did everything for her like giving her candle sex every night because it might be her last.

When she finds out she is going to live, she tells her family and they are all excited for her. It is the next day that she finds out the truth. Her mom (Gillian Vigman) and dad (Dylan Walsh) have not been happy for ages and they decide to split. In fact, her mom has been in love with her best friend, Poppi (Claudia Rocafort), and now they are finally acting on their feelings. Her married sister (Brooke Lyons), hates her kids and her job. She only had kids because she wanted her parents to be happy while her sister was dying. Her brother (Jayson Blair) gave up on life when he thought his sister was not going to have one. To make matters worse, her dad says they are going to have to sell the house to pay for her all of her medical bills.

That is a lot for Stella to handle and you thought dying was the worse thing she ever had to deal with. Now that her family and her husband can be themselves around her, they are all going to have to adjust to her life sentence. Can they do it?

You will not want miss this sweet drama that no matter how bad things get, they are still a family. Which is why I say it is a feel good show. But then again, Hale’s huge puppy dog eyes make everything seem like it is going to be OK in no matter what role she plays.

A mini Scrubs reunion!
July 20th, 2017 under Bill Lawrence, Zach Braff. [ Comments: none ]



Zach Braff, Donald Faison and Sarah Chalke got together for a steak night yesterday and we got a mini Scrubs reunion out of it. Not only that, it proves that JD and Turk had the best bromance ever to grace our televisions.

You know with Will & Grace coming back to NBC and Roseanne (with Chalke) returning to ABC, plus Scrubs repeats on Comedy Central; why hasn’t anyone given this show a revival order? People want their Scrubs and I am one of them. Do you want Scrubs back?

Is there a Scrubs reunion in the works?
May 19th, 2017 under Bill Lawrence, Zach Braff. [ Comments: none ]


While it seems like almost every show we loved, that was cancelled too soon, is getting a reunion special, there is one we have been anxiously waiting for. That program is Scrubs.

The show’s creator Bill Lawrence teased us that one might be happening when he posted the above photo with his stars Zach Braff and Sarah Chalke and said, “Reunion show plans: all we have so far is that drinking tequila is fun. #Scrubs #MissJohnnyKenDonaldJudy.”

Why don’t they just get everyone together in an abandoned hospital (since the place where they shot the show was torn down), drink some Tequila and Improv the whole the whole thing. He is used to doing things by the seat of his pants thanks to Undateable. I am sure this cast could have a lot of fun with no script. Although, if they have too much fun, then maybe they are better off filming it in a mental institution? Now that would be totally cray cray.

But in all seriousness, I don’t know if the reunion show is in the works, but I am sure Netflix would be interested in it. After all, fans of the sitcom let them know they were upset when they were going to remove it from the streaming service. Plus, if it is on the Netflix they can do things they couldn’t do when they were on NBC and ABC. Just imagine what madness and hilarity would ensue.

March 8th, 2017 under Before They Were Famous, Bill Lawrence, Kal Penn. [ Comments: none ]


Before Kal Penn was partying in college with Van Wilder, he was doing that with Charlie Sheen on Spin City. He looks the same now as he did when he was 23 in that 2000 episode.

NBC breaks up with Undateable
May 13th, 2016 under Bill Lawrence, Fox, NBC. [ Comments: none ]


NBC had a great comedy with Undateable, but they just didn’t know how to promote it. They tried to by making it live, but then buried it on Fridays. The show just never had the support it needed. One season, it’s launched in the summer, then the next midseaon and finally the fall. People just didn’t know when to tune in because there was no consistency and no other strong sitcoms to pair it up with.
I am sure that everyone, who worked on the show, will land on their feet. I will just miss them. Someone give Bill Lawrence another show ASAP because he is the most caring Executive Producer out there who really cares about his show and the show’s fan. That and he knows humor!
Although, Lawrence just Tweeted that he will be shopping the show around and I pray someone buys it.
Undateable wasn’t the only show NBC broke up with today. They are no longer seeing Heartbeat, Crowded, Telenovela and Game of Silence. Heartbeat is their biggest loss of that bunch, another great show that was on the wrong network.
Talking about other networks. While ABC listened to the outraged fans and cancelled Castle after they lost one of the people who made up the show’s duo, Fox didn’t. Sleepy Hollow was renewed for a fourth season, even though the viewers were pissed that they killed off Nicole Beharie. That show, more than Castle, was built on the chemistry of the leads. Without that, the show will be deader than the Headless Horseman. I can’t wait to see how horrific the ratings will be for it.
