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

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?

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.
