Even Punky Power couldn’t save Punky Brewster

When NBC Universal announced that they were launching the streaming network Peacock, they revealed that they were doing a revival of Punky Brewster. Kids of the ’80s were like super excited to have her back.

But unfortunately, I found it to be a letdown. It felt like a completely different show that was not loyal to the original.

I guess I am not alone because Variety is reporting that Peacock cancelled the sitcom after 10 episodes.

Do you find this news grossaroo, or do you think they made the right choice?


The Frogger game show looks frogging amazing
August 19th, 2021 under Peacock. [ Comments: none ]

When Peacock announced that they were making a live-action game show based on the Frogger videogame, I was like, how are they going to do that? Today, we got a glimpse of it in the trailer.

It is Frogger meets Wipeout meets American Ninja Warrior, and I am all for it. As a viewer, not a competitor.

Are you going to be watching on September 9th as contestants get injured all in the hopes of winning $100,000? I will be there! But then again, Frogger is one of my favorite videogames.


Dr. Death will make you question all of your doctors
July 18th, 2021 under Alec Baldwin, Christian Slater, Dawsons Creek, Peacock. [ Comments: none ]

Peacock tells the true story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch (Joshua Jackson). He is known as Dr. Death for a reason. That reason is the surgeon has killed or maimed over 30 of his patients. They went to him because they thought he could cure them, but he makes them a lot worse.

When neurosurgeon Robert Henderson (Alec Baldwin) and vascular surgeon Randall Kirby (Christian Slater) find out about him, they decide to do everything in their power to stop him. However, there are going to be a lot of obstacles that will try to stop them. So along with Dallas prosecutor Michelle Shughart (AnnaSophia Robb), they will build a case against Dr. Death.

Will they win when they finally have their day in court? You will just have to stream the 8-part series to find out.

The first four episodes start off slow, but stick with the series because it picks in up in episode five and never slows down again.

The only other complaint I have is I think Slater and Jackson should have switched roles. Slater is just better at playing narcissists and sociopaths.

Other than that, I was intrigued to find how doctors can get literall6y away with murder.

It is the summer; there is nothing else to watch. So why not watch something that will keep you captivated.


Ted is coming to Peacock without Marky Mark!
June 10th, 2021 under Peacock, Seth MacFarlane. [ Comments: none ]

There is some f*cking good news in the teddy bear world today. Ted is coming back. Not as a full feature movie with Mark Wahlberg, but as a 10-episode prequel on Peacock.

“Seth has a superpower of creating fandoms and Ted is a shining example of his ability to create beloved characters that we can’t get enough of,” NBCUniversal Entertainment Content chairman Susan Rovner said in a statement to THR. “We are so lucky to bring this project to Peacock viewers who will have an opportunity to see their favorite foul-mouthed teddy bear once again.”

MacFarlane will reprise the voice of the foul-mouthed stuffed animal, along with writing and directing the first episode.

However, when that will be, is anyone’s guess. That is because we are still waiting for him to finish the third season of Orvillefor Hulu. He better hurry up, or we will be in the same year as the year the show takes place.


Punky Brewster is still spunky
February 25th, 2021 under Peacock. [ Comments: none ]

Punky Brewster is back with all-new episodes on Peacock after a 36-year hiatus. Punky is all grown up with a family of her own.

Punky (Soleil Moon Frye) is recently divorced from her husband, Travis (Freddie Prinze Jr.), and she is raising their three kids. They have a teenage daughter, Hannah (Lauren Lindsey Donzis), who is raising her parents and brothers, Diego (Noah Cottrell) and Daniel (Oliver De Los Santos), who are adopted. She is trying to get her life back to normal, but her BFF Cherie (Cherie Johnson) throws a wrench into that plan.

Cherie asks her to foster a little girl named Izzy (Quinn Copeland), who is trouble just like Punky was back when they were kids. Cherie says it will only be for a short time, but it turns into a full-time living arrangement.

Punky’s kids are not sold on Izzy. Her husband Travis is back home and thinks he is still married to Punky. She is trying to get her photography career back on track. She is also going to try dating again. Dating is never easy. Nothing in Punky’s life is easy, but that won’t stop her.

That is because she has Punky power! Just like the sequel. It is a fun binge for fans of the OG series and people who have never seen it.

We all need something like this series in our life, so add it to your must binge list now.
