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.


Code Black is back with an action-packed, emotional season!
April 25th, 2018 under CBS, Marcia Gay Harden, Rob Lowe. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 10p, Code Black checks in for a third season on CBS. Mama (Luis Guzman) and Papa (Marcia Gay Harden) have their hand fulls at one of the busiest ERs in the country.

The episode starts off with the new interns and they are going to have a busy first day ahead of them. Col. Ethan Willis (Rob Lowe) is a field doctor this season and he is going to ride along with Rox Valenzuela (Moon Bloodgood). Their first case together is a shootout at a house where they have powder Fentanyl. They have to save the victims of both the gunshots and the ones who inhaled the drug. Both are equally as fatal.

While they are out in the field Dr. Leanne Roris (Harden) brings her foster daughter (Emily Alyn Lind) into work as a candy striper. Ariel will meet a boy with cancer and fall in love. Not only that she will learn a lot about life while she works at the hospital.

In the coming weeks, they will deal with a warehouse collapse, a road rage incident, a 12-year-old girl who is alone on a plane with her mom who is passed out, deadly wildfires, an accident at a step competition, a boat explosion, a kid who drinks boiling water, one of their own who is injured in a hit and run, and finally a plane crash.

If that is not enough to deal with, they have to deal with their personal lives too. There will be loss, love and so much more. They are a make-shift family in all of this madness.

Be prepared to laugh and cry with each episode. And next week get ready to dance along with a musical number that opens the show. There is a reason for it and the cast and crew went all out for this song and dance number.

Code Black is the perfect mix of medical and personal drama rolled into one great show. One that heats up our summer nights and gives us the adrenaline to get through the rest of week.

Whether you have seen this show before or tonight will be the first time, you will quickly be hooked on this thrilling medical drama that has a lot of heart as they are saving lives.
