Mad About You fans have something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving
September 5th, 2019 under Helen Hunt, Spectrum. [ Comments: none ]


For over a year, Paul Reiser tried to find a home for Mad About You. Finally, Spectrum decided to save the day and picked up the show as a limited series.

Today, they announced that the first 6 episodes of the show will debut on November 20th and the latter six will come out on December 18th. Not only that all 164 episodes are available now to watch on Spectrum OnDemand.

What can we expect from the 12 episodes? “The series will explore the fertile ground of modern marriage through the eyes of the Buchmans as newly minted empty-nesters after dropping their unpredictable, hard-to-control daughter Mabel (Abby Quinn) off at college.” John Pankow and Richard Kind reprise their roles as Ira Buchman and Dr. Mark Devanow.

With all the blood, sweat and tears that Helen Hunt and Reiser put into this revival, I hope it is good. Which I am assuming it will be.

LA Finest is the finest LA cop show!
May 13th, 2019 under Gabrielle Union, Jessica Alba, Spectrum. [ Comments: none ]


Bad Boys was good, but they have nothing on the television spinoff LA Finest. Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union bring their sass to Spectrum OnDemand today. The networks might have rejected it, but Spectrum was smart to make it their first scripted show.

Syd (Union) moved from Miami to LA to have a calmer life as a detective after being shot and left for dead. That past makes her the tough cop that she is, but she does not share her former life with anyone including her partner.

Nancy (Jessica Alba) also has a troubled past, but she turned her life around. She is now married to Patrick McKenna (Ryan McPartlin) and together they are raising his teenage daughter Izzy (Sophie Reynolds). Patrick just got offered the job to be the District Attorney and that is going to affect the McKenna household

You don’t care about that. You want to know if they are going to be explosions, car chases, shoot outs, fights and all those other things that come with Dick Flicks. The leads might be females, but they have bigger balls than most of their male competition.

They are women hear them roar on Spectrum.

Are you happy about Mad About You coming back to television?
March 6th, 2019 under Helen Hunt, Paul Reiser, Spectrum. [ Comments: none ]


After a year of pitching a Mad About You revival, the show finally has a home. Spectrum Originals announced today that it picked up the sitcom for a limited event series to air later this year.

So far the only original cast members returning are Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt aka Paul and Jamie Buchman. I am sure that will change as they ramp up production. When they do start filming, Hunt will direct the first episode along with starring in it.

Katherine Pope, Head of Original Content, has this to say about it, “Two decades ago, fans fell in love with this show, and this time will be no different as Paul, Helen and Peter [Tolan, EP] explore modern marriage through the eyes of two people who have just become empty-nesters. We can’t wait for everyone to fall in love with the Buchmans all over again.​”​

How much do you want to bet that they have an episode dealing with them trying to figure out how to use social media and how to do esex? I can just hear his NY accent whining about it now.

This is Spectrum’s second original series. LA Finest, a spinoff of Bad Boys with Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, will debut on May 13th.

Forget Bad Boys 3, it is all about L.A. Finest now!
February 7th, 2019 under Gabrielle Union, Jessica Alba, Spectrum. [ Comments: none ]


So Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are filming Bad Boys 3 as you read this, but that movie is not going to come out for another year. Plus, it is a one-time showing.

Its spinoff, L.A. Finest starring Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union will debut on Spectrum OnDemand May 13th. Not only that it is 13 episodes. If this trailer is just a tiny glimpse of what we can expect from the show, then who is going to want to see that movie? These actresses will show them who is boss! They are.

Boys might like their explosions and car chases, but they like it even more when there are two sexy women causing them. Thus, what is not to like about L.A. Finest?

Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union’s Bad Boys spinoff gets a home
June 26th, 2018 under Gabrielle Union, Jessica Alba, Spectrum. [ Comments: none ]


Back in May, NBC passed on LA’s Finest, a spinoff of Bad Boys starring Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union. Then a few weeks later, Canada’s Bell Media picked it up. Today, Alba revealed it will be airing here in the states.

The actress wrote, “We are here to kick ass and take names!!! LA’s Finest has been officially picked up by Charter Communications— marking their first major series order for Spectrum. @gabunion and I are coming at you guys hot with 13 episodes in 2019. It’s going down. 👯🤜🏽💥.”

This is the third cancelled/not picked up show to find a home. Brooklyn Nine-Nine was taken into custody by NBC, Netflix signed a deal with Lucifer and now this. Who is going to save The Last Man on Earth? Someone, anyone, please let me know what happens next because I need to know.

When it comes to LA’s Finest, it better do well. We need as many outlets to save the shows we love that the network’s do not.
