LA Finest is no longer Spectrum’s finest
October 15th, 2020 under Gabrielle Union, Jessica Alba, Spectrum. [ Comments: none ]


Spectrum announced today that it is not moving forward with a third season for LA Finest, according to The Hollywood Report. The Bad Boys spinoff, which stars Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union, has quite an interesting history. The pilot was made for NBC, but they turned it down. Spectrum decided to get into the series business and picked it up. When Fox needed some programming for the fall, due to the coronavirus pandemic, they picked up the first season to fill their airtime. The show’s second season premiere was delayed due to the Black Lives Matter movement after George Floyd’s death.

It was the little show that could until it couldn’t.

L.A.’s Finest’s season two will not debut today
June 8th, 2020 under Gabrielle Union, Jessica Alba, Spectrum. [ Comments: none ]


L.A.’s Finest was supposed to debut its second season today on Spectrum Originals. However, they decided to hold off on premiering the Bad Boys spinoff, that stars Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, until later this year, according to Variety.

The cable provider did not explain why they are delaying the cop drama, but it is assumed because of the current climate of protests against the violence and systemic racism towards black people by corrupt cops. It is just not the best time to air a show glorifying police officers.

Even though L.A.’s Finest is a Spectrum Original show, the first season is slated to air on Fox in September. I have a feeling the cable provider will debut season two right after season one finishes on broadcast. Which would be smart. Why wait for season two, if you can watch it immediately? They might even get a few subscribers to uncut the cord.

Are Jamie and Paul in trouble on Mad About You?
December 18th, 2019 under Helen Hunt, Paul Reiser, Spectrum. [ Comments: none ]


The second half of Mad About You’s first season of the revival debuted on Spectrum today, and it feels like it did when it originally aired.

Jamie (Helen Hunt) and Paul (Paul Reiser) are having a hard time dealing with Mabel (Abby Quinn) moving out. So much so, it is causing problems in their marriage. They go for counseling, and she tells them their marriage is over. Is it?

They are not the only ones having trouble; Mabel is getting into trouble in school. In fact, NYU has had it with her, and they kick her out. What will she do now that she is no longer a student?

Maybe she can housesit celebrity homes like her aunt Lisa (Anne Ramsay). Although she might be out of work soon because the celebs find out she has been wearing their clothes.

Those crazy Buchmans can’t stop getting in trouble. Even the dog finds away to do it.

Do you know what is not in trouble? The sitcom. Even though it is supposed to be a limited run, it feels like it could go for a few more seasons.

You will still be mad about Mad About You
November 20th, 2019 under Helen Hunt, Paul Reiser, Spectrum. [ Comments: none ]


Back in 1992, we got to know Paul (Paul Reiser) and Jamie Buckman (Helen Hunt), two New York newlyweds, trying to make their marriage work. In 1999, we said goodbye to the new parents. Or so we thought.

Twenty years later, they are saying goodbye to their daughter Mabel, who is going to college. Starting today, you can watch the 12-episode event on Spectrum TV as the Buckmans adjust to being empty nesters.

The revival starts off with Paul and Jamie getting their only child ready to leave for college. Sadly for Mable, she chose to go to school in Manhattan, so her parents will stop by all the time unannounced. Which, of course, she will not like. There will be growing pains for their parents, they will learn to adjust.

They are not the only ones adjusting, several of the original cast members are back and their lives are different too. Jamie’s sister is still single and Lisa (Anne Ramsay) has a really cool job. Ira (John Pankow) has a woman in his life and they run a restaurant together. Mark (Richard Kind) and Fran have gone their different ways and he is married to someone new.

Like real life, their lives changed over the last two decades. What hasn’t changed is the feel of the show. Like Will & Grace, it feels like no time has passed since the first run and this one. If you are a fan of the original, then you are going to love this update. I know I am loving it after watching the first six episodes.

Helen Hunt is Mad About Cloris Leachman
October 3rd, 2019 under Cloris Leachman, Helen Hunt, Spectrum. [ Comments: none ]


We already know that Spectrum Originals is doing a revival of Mad About You. What we did not know until today is that Cloris Leachman is going to guest star on the show. However, we do not know what she is going to be doing on it. What we do is the 93-year-old legend looks amazing with her co-star Helen Hunt.

This casting makes me more even excited for the series’ debut on November 20th. Who doesn’t love watching Leachman do her thing?
