November 4th, 2019 under Angela Bassett, CBS, Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on CBS’s The Neighborhood, it is Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer) and Tina’s (Tichina Arnold) 30th anniversary. As soon a Gemma (Beth Behrs) finds that out, she convinces them to have the wedding they never had. They got married the first time around in a courthouse.

Gemma gets so excited; she is spending their money like it grows on trees. Something that the very cheap Calvin does not like. He does something that causes Tina to call off the wedding.

Will Calvin and Tina get married or get divorced? You have to tune in to find out. There are definitely a lot of funny twists and turns throughout the episode.

Also at 8p but over on Fox, we learn Athena’s (Angela Bassett) backstory on 9-1-1. Before she was a police officer, she wanted to be a lawyer. Then one day, she met Emmett, a cop, and she fell in love. Not only did he convince her to become a cop, but he also asked her to marry him. She said yes.

Before they said I do, he was killed on the job, and his killer was never caught. That was until now. The gun that killed her first love has just been found, and she is going to do everything she can to trace back who had it on that fateful night. She will do things that will put her risk.

How far will she go to find her fiance’s killer? You are going to watch this episode that finally explains why she is the way that she is.


Will Buck win his case or lose his friends on 9-1-1?
October 21st, 2019 under Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Last week on 9-1-1, Buck (Oliver Stark) decided to sue the city, the fire department and Bobby (Peter Krause) to get his job back at LAFD Station 19. While the lawsuit is going on, he cannot talk to any of his friends at the firehouse. Which is something they will be OK with. That is because tonight at 8p on Fox, the depositions begin. His friends will see how far he is willing to go to get his job back including revealing a lot of their secrets. How will they handle his betrayal?

That is just one part of the episode. We want to see the wild and crazy calls they are sent out on. Two best friends go to one of those places where you can destroy things to get out all of your anger. One friend finds out that her BFF has been sleeping with her husband. Probably not a good time to get caught when the wife of the man you are sleeping with is holding a sledgehammer. What will she do to her ex BFF?

The station house goes for a food run. You would think it would be uneventful, but it is not. They just cannot get away from trouble.

Finally, Athena’s (Angela Bassett) ex-husband, Michael (Rockmond Dunbar) takes their kids for a trip. On the way back, they are stopped by two overzealous white cops who threaten to harm him and his daughter (Corinne Massiah). They only leave when he tells them that Athena is his wife. How will she react when she finds out what happened to her family? No one wants to mess with her. She is scary. This is the storyline you do not want to miss.

9-1-1 gives us a little bit of everything. Tonight’s episode really delivers in all departments.


A Tsunami hits 9-1-1
September 30th, 2019 under Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

At the end of last week’s episode on 9-1-1, Buck (Oliver Stark), Eddie’s (Ryan Guzman) disabled son Christopher (Gavin McHugh) and thousands of people watched as the water disappeared from the Santa Monica Pier back into the ocean. Tonight at 8p on Fox, we find out why, a Tsunami.

The lifeguard tried to warn them as fast as he could, but there was not enough time. They ran as fast as they could, but they were caught up in the wave that took out Santa Monica.

As the wave settles, 9-1-1 in inundated with calls of trapped people asking out to get out of their cars and homes that are rapidly filling up with water. Several calls go dead because the person on the other end is, well, dead.

Even though those calls get disconnected, their system is still full. People cannot get through. People like Athena and the dozens of others who were involved in a pile-up further inland with her. She is trying to keep everyone calm and get the injured help. However, there is no one available that can help them. They need immediate assistance because there is a downed power line and the sewer system is backing up due to the excess water.

There is no one to help because all first responders are being sent to Santa Monica to rescue whatever survivors there are. LAFD Station 118 trades in their firetrucks for rafts. The first group of people they come across are a wedding party in a boat that what was in the ocean when the Tsunami hit. They only have a limited time to help them because the boat is filling up with water.

Talking about filling up with water, several of the nearby hospitals are flooded. Therefore the ones inland have no room for any new patients. It is up the Mandy (Jennifer Love Hewitt) to come up with a solution because there is nowhere for the injured to go.

If that is not enough to handle. What comes in, must go out. Just when they thought the levels settled, the ocean wants its water back.

I don’t know why I still watch 9-1-1 while I live in Los Angeles. It is scary as hell for me because what happens on the show can happen here and it does. Like they did a major earthquake last season and we had two in July. Even though the drama scares the crap out of me, I am too addicted to stop watching. It is too exciting for me to say no more. Who else feels the same way?

Especially when they do an episode like this one. The actors and crew did such a great job with a production, you feel like you are watching a movie and not a television show.


9-1-1 is back saving lives, Prodigal Son tries to stop murders
September 23rd, 2019 under Fox, Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Fox is ready for a new season and they are starting it off with 9-1-1. The episode starts with a car being chased by police. Maddie (Jennifer Love Hewitt) gets a phone call from the guy being chased and he has a good reason for not being able to stop. He can’t. The brakes are not working. Now, everyone has to figure a way to get him to stop the car and get out of it alive. I recently saw an old telemovie about this just scenario because it has actually happened.

That is what Ryan Murphy does. He brings real-life scenarios to his show and gives it his spin of things. Sometimes I wish he didn’t because I still have not been able to use my car wash that was featured on one of his episodes and my car is really dirty.

Back to the show, it takes place months after the season finale and Buck (Oliver Stark) is finally ready to get back to work. That is if he can pass the test. While he waits, he takes Eddie’s (Ryan Guzman) son to the Santa Monica Pier for a nice day out. That is until a tsunami ruins their day. Well, maybe not everything is ripped from the headlines.

Oh and did I mention that LAFD Station 118 go to a nursing home to check out an elderly man who has an unusual STD! Let’s just say we are all going to have the sex talk with older family members after tonight. Condoms prevent more than pregnancy.

I always forget how much I miss 9-1-1 until it is back. And it is back baby.

Then at 9p, it is time for Prodigal Son. When Malcolm Bright (Tom Payne) was a little boy, his father was arrested for being a serial killer. Ever since then he wants to distance himself from his dad. However, he has become an FBI profiler. When they fire him, Gil Arroyo (Lou Diamond Phillips) from the NYPD hires him to work for them.

The first case is a copycat of his dad’s murders. What better source of information than his father. Thus, he goes to his dad for help. Which might not be a good idea because Dr. Martin Whitly (Michael Sheen) gets into his head. That makes him go even deeper into his profiling.

His mother Jessica Whitly (Bellamy Young) and sister Ainsley Whitly (Halston Sage) are going to try to stop him from talking to his father. However, he can’t even he wanted to. His dad knows has his number and he is not going to stop calling.

The more he deals with his dad, the more he remembers his childhood. He starts to remember things that he locked away which will make him question if the people around him knew more than they told him and how much more.

As he is going through all of this, he still has to deal with his job. Getting into the minds of serial killers. Each week, he will solve the modern-day murders as the ones from his past come back to haunt him in this dark thrilling drama.


9-1-1 reveals what disaster they take on in the season premiere
August 15th, 2019 under Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Ryan Murphy likes to up the ante with each season premiere of 9-1-1. For the midseason premiere of the Fox drama, LA suffered a major earthquake. Now for the 3rd season premiere on September 23rd, they are hit with tsunami. Santa Monica has not seen such a devastating natural disater since they were struck by a Sharknado in 2013.

Seriously, if Murphy keeps doing stories like this in the city where I live in, I think I am going to have to move. They had a quake in February and then we had one in July. I don’t want a tsumani in 6 months. Granted, I am in inland enough, but still. It is bad enough they shot an episode at the place where I get my car washed. Is he trying to run us out of LA?

You would think I would have learned my lesson by now, but I have not. I cannot stop watching. Can you?
