Young Sheldon, Ghosts, and So Help Me Todd are back with enjoyable episodes

We have not had new episodes of Young Sheldon, Ghosts, and So Help Me Todd, since May. And they are finally back on CBS tonight.

The night starts with Young Sheldon at 8p, and it picks up right after the tornado hits Medford. MeeMaw (Annie Potts) saw that her house was destroyed, and that means she, her future daughter-in-law Mandy (Emily Osment), and her granddaughter have nowhere to live.

Well, they do. They can stay across the street at her daughter’s house. Luckily, there is a little more room there because Mary (Zoe Perry) and Sheldon (Iain Armitage) are in Germany so that he can study at one of their colleges. When Mary finds out about the tornado, she wants to fly home, but Sheldon is insistent they stay. So they do.

Back in Medford, Missy (Raegan Revord) is in charge. Even though she is the youngest person, minus the baby, in the household, she is the most mature. She takes over and keeps the house in order. And they are going to need it while her mother is overseas.

It is not like her father (Lance Barber) or her older brother (Montana Jordan) are up for the job. And they are happy to let her do the job.

Even though their World has been turned upside down, the Coopers have their stuff together.

And they also bring so much laughter and so much heart. It makes me sad that this is the series last season. Enjoy it while you can.

Then at 8:30p, we finally find out who was sucked up on Ghosts! And it has been tortorous waiting this long.

So, who will Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar) and Sam (Rose McIver) find out who has moved on? Is it Thor (Devan Chandler), Sass (Román Zaragoza), Hetty (Rebecca Wisocky), Isaac (Brandon Scott Jones), Nigel (John Hartman), Alberta (Danielle Pinnock), Flower (Sheila Carrasco), Pete (Richie Moriarty), or Trevor (Asher Grodman)?

I am not going to tell you who it is. But I will tell you that despite several ghosts making guest appearances, it is one of the souls I mentioned above.

It is not who I thought it was. But their departure makes sense.

Even though we are losing someone we love, Ghosts still delivers a heartfelt episode that you just want to hug.

I didn’t realize how much I missed this sitcom until I watched the season 3 premiere. I am so happy it is back! Never leave me for that long again.

Then at 9p, So Help Me Todd is back with its best episode to date.

Now that Todd (Skylar Astin) is a licensed Private Investigator again, he has set up shop in his mother’s law firm.

Margaret (Marcia Gay Harden), who has just been promoted to partner, is not going to allow him to do that. If he wants to use their offices, he has to work only for her. But, more on that later.

As soon as Margeret walks into the office, she is assigned her first job as partner. And that task is to lay off some of the staff because they have lost several accounts and need the money.

She doesn’t want to do that, so she takes on the case of a morning anchor (Lisa Rinna) who is accused of killing her co-anchor live on the air.

Together, the mom and son are going to try to find out who really did it. And it is a good thing that Todd put out feelers because the person who might know more about the murder wants to hire him to clear his name.

What does he know? And is he the person they need to solve the case?

And if that is not enough. Margaret has to deal with the fact that her husband, who ran away to Iceland without telling her he was going, is back, just when she found a new man to be in her life.

It is a lot. But this show is a fun roller coaster ride you don’t want to get off of. It is a fast-moving, entertaining show that leaves you guessing until the final reveal. Plus, the characters play off of each other so well that you tune in to watch their chemistry like you did Laurel & Hardy.


BTWF: Marcia Gay Harden in Miller’s Crossing

Before Marcia Gay Harden had a vanilla marriage in Fifty Shades of Grey, she was having affair with two bad men in Miller’s Crossing. She looks the same now as she did when she was 30 in that 1990 movie.

Before Marcia Gay Harden was asking So Help Me Todd, she got help from Man of the Steel in Superman’s 50th Anniversary. She looks the same now as she did when she was 28 in that 1988 mockumentary.


So Help Me Todd is a legal procedural with a family twist
September 29th, 2022 under CBS, Marcia Gay Harden, Skylar Astin. [ Comments: 1 ]

Legal procedurals don’t have to be so uptight, they can be fun like CBS’s So Help Me Todd which debuts tonight at 9p.

Todd (Skylar Astin) is a PI who had his license revoked. He is irresponsible, unlike his mother, Margaret (Marcia Gay Harden), who is a top lawyer. All she wants is for her son to get his life back on track.

However, her life is about to go off track when her husband suddenly goes missing. Todd uses his magic to try to track him down, and that impresses his mom so much so that she decides to hire him at the firm where she works at so she can keep track of him and use his skills.

Not everyone is happy about his hire. Lyle (Tristen J. Winger) already does the firm’s research, and he thinks his way works best. He is very anal and doesn’t agree with Todd’s fly-by-the-seat ways. Can they win each other over?

Todd’s sister, Allison (Madeline Wise), is already on his side. She also has to be a buffer between her mother and her brother. Something that is not easy because she has to remember to keep their secrets and lies from the other one. She sometimes forgets what to hide. That and she gets caught in the middle. It makes it more difficult that her brother lives with her, and his mom wants him to grow up and get his own place.

Now that he is working with her, she is hoping she can get him in check. While he is hoping to get, his mom to loosen up. Little by little, they rub off on the other one. All while making sure that her clients get the best defense due to their skills.

This show is a procedural, but it also has a lot of heart. So it is the perfect dramedy to follow Ghosts and lead into CSI: Vegas. CBS has a must-see Thursday, and I am looking forward to next week and the week after that, and so on.


CBS pulls the plug on Code Black
May 24th, 2018 under CBS, Marcia Gay Harden, Rob Lowe. [ Comments: 1 ]
Michael Saltzman broke the sad news that his show Code Black will not be back next season on CBS. He wrote, “Dear #CodeBlack fans, the sad news came today that we were cancelled. It’s been a true joy to make this show and watch your response every week. Thank you for all of your passion. Truly, our best episodes have yet to air. We hope you’ll watch and enjoy them. We made them for you.”

I have seen the remaining episodes and he is not overexaggerating how good those episodes truly are. Will fans be upset with the, now, series finale? He addressed that and said, “We always suspected this would be the last season. We wrote it to end that way.” Again, having seen that episode, I think fans will be very satisfied with the ending.

I am sad to see this medical drama go because it was a different take than the other shows like it. Because of that, it was a fast-paced enjoyable hour of television. Plus, it had a really great cast that includes Marcia Gay Harden, Luis Guzman, Ben Hollingsworth and Rob Lowe. I wish CBS would have kept it around as a summer show, but at least we have the remaining episodes that air Wednesdays at 10p.
