Chicago One delivers one hell of a three-hour crossover episode
October 16th, 2019 under Dick Wolf. [ Comments: none ]


Starting at 8p tonight, Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD all join together to stop a highly-contagious, deadly virus from spreading all over Chicago. The three-hour event will keep you on the edge of your seat from the beginning until the end. Therefore you might want to drink some coffee with your dinner because you are going to want to be awake to see how it ends.

The episode starts off with our first responders doing a tailgate at a football. They are enjoying the food and friendship until a man suddenly collapses. Brett (Kara Killmer) looks at his bloodied leg and realizes he has flesh-eating bacteria. They rush him to the hospital and think that is the end of it.

It is not. Brett and Emily (Annie Ilonzeh) are sent to a house and discover a couple who died from the same thing. They are not the only ones, a woman and her baby are found in a car at a gas station with their flesh decaying away.

One case of it necrotizing fasciitis is rare, five is an outbreak. Now One Chicago needs to find out how this thing is spreading, how these people are connected and how to make it stop.

Fire gets their first clue in a major fire. There is a laboratory that has the same initials that patient zero kept repeating when they were working on him. What is the connection?

Just as things seem to calm down, three sets of paramedics are all sent to the same building but to different apartments. They discover several people who all have the same symptoms as the others. Now there are 30 more possible victims and the hospital has to prepare to quarantine them all. Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) needs to make space for all of them because they are not prepared for an influx of people like that.

No one, even the CDC, knows what is going on and the death toll is climbing. Everyone in Chicago is afraid to leave their homes because they do not want to catch whatever this thing is.

Will they be able to find out what this is before they need to find a new city to live in? You just have to tune in to find out.

Out of all of the crossover events they have done with this franchise, this one is by far the best. Instead of having three different episodes telling the same story, it feels like one telemovie. The three shows flow very well together as one entity.

Plus, the story is a really good one. Then again, I am biased because I love all things plague related. Some shows and movies get it right and some get it wrong. One Chicago got it very right. They all did Dick Wolf proud.

Death comes to Chicago Med and Fire, Masked Singer is ready to unmask
September 25th, 2019 under Dick Wolf, Fox. [ Comments: none ]


Chicago Med is back on NBC tonight and not everyone is going to make it to the credits tonight. The episode starts off with Will (Nick Gehlfuss) rushing a bloodied Natalie (Torrey DeVitto) into the ER after their car accident. She is unresponsive and doctors are doing all they can to save her. Will looks like he is OK, but turns out he was more injured than anyone thought.

Dr. Rhodes (Colin Donnell) is dealing with his dad’s death and the hospital thinks it is murder. Because of the relationship he had with his father, they think he did it. They start an investigation and he is their #1 suspect.

Maggie (Marlyne Barrett) is not dealing with the fact that she has cancer and it has metastasized. Sharon (S. Epatha Merkerson) insists that she gets it looked at. Turns out nurses are just as bad patients as doctors.

Finally, Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt) comes back after his wedding to his dying ex-wife to help everyone through the madness. Little did he know he was going to also help everyone deal with a death of one of their own.

Who dies? You know I cannot tell you! But I can tell you it is worth the watch.


Then at 9p on Chicago Fire, the show picks up with them still fighting the fire from the season finale. One of their own is critically injured and they are not going to survive. That person’s death is going to rock the firehouse. Their death will mean something different to all of them, and they will all handle it differently.

To make matters worse, headquarters is going to see if Casey (Jesse Spencer) acted criminally during the fire. They will launch an investigation, what will they find out?

Get the tissues ready because you are going to need them for a heart-wrenching episode.


If you want to laugh, then you are going to want to tune in for The Masked Singer. Tonight at 8p, the first 8 singers are going to sing and two will be unmasked.

The competition starts off with the Butterfly vs the Egg and the Skeleton vs the Thingamajig. The loser of each battle will go up against each other and one will be revealed.

After that reveal it is time for the Ladybug vs the Rottweiler (my cat’s favorite) and the Tree vs the Ice Cream. Like the first round, one of them will take off their costume for the last time.

While the 8 of them show us that they can really sing, the judges: Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong, Nichole Scherzinger and Jenny McCarthy try to guess who is underneath those totally awesome masks. At one point, someone guesses Marshmallow and the other judges are like how would we know what he is looks because he already wears a mask.

The clues are harder, but I suck at guessing. Although, I think I know who one of them is. However. I am sure I am wrong because I never get it right until midway through the show.

Will you do better than me? Tune in for a show where the singers are just as amazing as what they are wearing. On that note, host Nick Cannon is wearing diamond shoes that are worth $2.4 million. The contestants who can barely see anything in those oversized heads, better make sure not to step on his feet. It will cost them more than to fix his shoes than what they are getting paid to be on the show.

The Resident, Empire and FBI have explosive season premieres!
September 24th, 2019 under Dick Wolf, Empire, Fox. [ Comments: none ]


The Resident moves to its new night tonight at 8p on Fox and it takes place a month after the season finale.

Nic (Emily VanCamp) is still dealing with the loss of her family member. In the season finale, her father gave her sister his kidney. The surgeries did not go as smoothly as expected. Therefore, only one survived and we find out who. The loss is so devastating to her that she cannot even step into the hospital. Tonight she goes back for the first time.

Not on a good day. As soon as she walks in, there is an explosion in the basement. Little does she know that Conrad (Matt Czuchry) went down to the basement looking for a lost little boy. Together the two of them and another person are caught in the explosion. Will Nic lose someone else she loves?

Meanwhile, Dr. Bell (Bruce Greenwood) is dealing with the hospital being sold to a conglomerate. They made him take on Barrett Cain (Morris Chestnut) neurosurgeon, who has an ego that puts them all to shame. As we know, no one has a bigger ego than Bell. At least we used to know.

Chastain General is going through a lot of changes this season. I cannot wait to see them play out.


Then at 9p, Empire begins its final season. It will be a figuratively explosive one. The show picks up months after the season finale.

Lucious (Terrence Howard) is in hiding and has a new look. Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) is on a View like show. Andre (Trai Byers) is running Empire but someone comes in claim their stake. He does not want this person there.

The Lyons are trying to figure out who they are without their leader. However, how long can he stay away? Do they need him?

You are just going to have to tune in for a season where anything can happen. Anything but Jussie Smollett coming back to the show this season.


Also at 9p, is FBI that starts off with a Muslim restaurant getting bombed. The case hits close to home for Omar (Zeeko Zaki) who used to eat there all the time as a kid. This is his community in more ways than one.

When an FBI agent comes to him and tells him that there is going to be another attack, he has to go undercover to stop it. Since this is close to him, he will make a mistake. One that could cost him his job.

The episode also looks at what Muslims in America have been dealing with since 9/11. Something they handle very responsibly.

Tune in for an emotional season premiere that really makes people think.

Law & Order: SVU is old enough to drink
March 29th, 2019 under Dick Wolf. [ Comments: none ]


NBC announced today that it picked up Law & Order: SVU for a 21st season. That makes it the longest-running primetime live-action series in television history. Beating the record that Gunsmoke held since 1975. This is the second record that Gunsmoke lost this year, The Simpsons took the title of most episodes produced by a scripted show away. Poor Gunsmoke, their records are going up in, well, gunsmoke.

But this is not about the Western, it is about the Special Victims Unit of the New York City Police Department, an elite squad of detectives who investigate crimes of sexual assault, child abuse and domestic violence.

One of those detectives is Lt. Oliva Benson and she is the longest-running female character in a primetime live-action series. Which is hard to believe because Mariska Hargitay has not aged a day since the show debuted in 1999. What is her secret?

Congrats to all involved. Celebrate it like you just turned 21 all over again. Which means ending the night worshiping the porcelain Gd.

Ice T and Snoop Dogg, 2 West Coast Rappers shooting on the East Coast
March 25th, 2019 under Dick Wolf, Ice-T/ Coco, Snoop Dogg. [ Comments: none ]


Two of the biggest West Coast Rappers are working on a project together on the East Coast. Ice T revealed today that Snoop Dogg is guest starring on an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU. Ice T did not say if Snoop is a good guy or a bad one on the NBC procedural, but he says it is titled Diss. I am sure it will be the shiznit and nothing to diss.

It is amazing that the two men, who have had their run-ins with the law, are working on a cop show. The irony is not lost on me. It also shows people do change.

It just dawned on me, when I was trying to figure out if they worked together before, that I interviewed both of them on the red carpet for Flavor Flav’s Comedy Central Roast.
