Watch Jim Parsons go bald for Hollywood
May 7th, 2020 under Jim Parsons, Netflix, Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Jim Parsons plays Henry Wilson, a sleazy agent, in Ryan Murphy’s Hollywood on Netflix, and the man he portrayed had a receding hairline. That means that the Big Bang Theory star had to do the same.

How was he going to get that look when he has a full head of hair? Is he going to shave the top of his head? Nope. The makeup department is going to give him a bald spot.

The actor showed us how they did it, and it takes a lot more effort than you would think. So much so, I think he should have just shaved it off.

When it comes to his character, I didn’t see Sheldon Cooper. That is the good news. The bad news is all I saw was Pee Wee Herman. Actually, it was more like Paul Reuben when he was on Murphy Brown.

When it comes to the mini-series, it is an enjoyable binge. It really captured the feel of the era even though the drama took a lot of liberties with the truth. Then again, who hasn’t? After all, that is what Hollywood is all about.


9-1-1 and 9-1-1: Lonestar don’t have to call 9-1-1
April 13th, 2020 under Fox, Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

We are a month away from the possible upfronts, but Fox is not going to wait that long to announce that they picked up two shows for next season. 9-1-1 and 9-1-1: Lonestar will both be on the lineup whenever the new seasons starts up.

Is this news a surprise? Far from it. They are both the network’s top scripted shows behind The Masked Singer. The latter is the perfect show during this time since everyone is wearing masks now.

Back to the dramas, I hope Lonestar is wilder like 9-1-1 when it comes back for its second season. It was too serious and too much about their lives. I want them to take on some crazy crap like the original show. That is what makes 9-1-1 so much fun. You never know what Ryan Murphy is going to pull out of his ridiculous hat.


There’s a wedding on The Neighborhood, Get to know Athena on 9-1-1
November 4th, 2019 under Angela Bassett, CBS, Ryan Murphy, Tichina Arnold. [ 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.
