Burden of Truth is back for another captivating legal season
June 2nd, 2019 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]


If someone told you that a legal drama that takes on one case a season could be one of the most interesting shows on television, then you probably would not believe them. Well, Burden of Truth is just that show, so you will want to watch it on The CW starting tonight at 8p.

Last year, Joanna Hanley (Kristin Kreuk), a big city lawyer, returned to her small town to represent the company that supplied the HPV vaccine to the teenage girls who were suddenly stricken with a mysterious illness that left them with the seizures and loss of memory. When one of the girls, who did not get the vaccine, gets sick, Joanna’s company is found innocent. She now has to look into what is the connection between the girls and their uncurable illness. Eventually, she finds out the mill is at fault and they are forced to pay the girls $2 million each. That causes the mill to shut down and now her old town is dying.

Joanna did not fight the case alone, Billy (Peter Mooney) is a lawyer in that small town and now they have turned against him because so many people lost the jobs.

When Joanna was back in Millwood she befriended Luna (Star Slade), one of the teenage girls, who did not get sick. The two women will find out they have a connection they never knew about. Her mom, Gerrilynn (Jessica Matten), had an affair with Joanna’s father when she was minor and she got pregnant. David Hanley (Alex Carter) denied he was the dad and never told anyone about the affair and the baby including his own daughter.

Did I mention everyone hates David and he was forced out of town taking his daughter with him? Even Joanna does not really like her dad and now she hates him just as much for lying to her for all of those years.

Which catches you up to the season premiere. It has been a year since Joanna won the case of a lifetime and she changed her last name to Chang. She works for another big city law firm and is given a big case to handle. Noah (Varun Saranga) is a hacktivist who created an app that can spy on your privacy. Lovand, the company he created it for, wants him to take it down. He does not want to do it, so they sue him to do just that. They win, but he refuses to do it. Now, he not only puts his life in danger, but he also puts Joanna’s in trouble too. Will she continue to defend him or will she walk away?

Meanwhile back in Millwood, Joanna’s father is acquitted of any negligence from his affair with Gerrilynn. Something that upsets her and her daughter. They vow to make him pay, but how far will they go to do so? That will be revealed in the third episode and that is when the show gets really good this season.

Summer TV used to be where networks used to dump their unwanted shows. Not anymore. Burden of Truth is better than all those regular season legal shows put together. Tune into the 8-part miniseries that reminds us that a show can tell one story for a season and still be interesting to watch week-after-week.

Don’t believe me? How about the fact that The CW already picked it up for a third season and the second on did not even premiere yet.

Here is The CW’s 2019-2020 season!
May 16th, 2019 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]


The CW announced their 2019-2020 schedule today and they made some smart moves.

The first smart move is pairing Batwoman with Supergirl. The second being is letting Arrow go out after The Flash. I wish Supernatural was paired with Nancy Drew for purely selfish reasons. I am curious about the new sleuth show, just wish it was on a night that I watched the show before it. However, I will not check out Charmed after Dynasty. That is a really weird matchup. Then again, The CW does not have anything else like the nighttime soap opera.

SUNDAY
8:00-9:00PM BATWOMAN (New Series)
9:00-10:00PM SUPERGIRL

MONDAY
8:00-9:00PM ALL AMERICAN (New Night)
9:00-10:00PM BLACK LIGHTNING

TUESDAY
8:00-9:00PM THE FLASH
9:00-10:00PM ARROW (New Night)

WEDNESDAY
8:00-9:00PM RIVERDALE
9:00-10:00PM NANCY DREW (New Series)

THURSDAY
8:00-9:00PM SUPERNATURAL
9:00-10:00PM LEGACIES

FRIDAY
8:00-9:00PM CHARMED (New Night)
9:00-10:00PM DYNASTY

The CW picked up all of its renewable shows
April 24th, 2019 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]


Back in January, The CW picked up ten of its show and today they picked up the rest. All American, In The Dark, The 100 and Roswell, New Mexico join Arrow, Black Lightning, Charmed, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Dynasty, The Flash, Legacies, Riverdale, Supergirl and Supernatural for the 2019-2020 season. Although it has already been announced that Arrow and Supernatural will be ending next season, I would not be surprised if more shows join them in TV hell.

To be honest, I cannot make sense of this decision, but I am just a viewer. I also wonder if this is the first time in television history that a network picked up all of their shows that could be picked up. Crazy Ex Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin and iZombie announced last year this would be their final seasons.

Want to see the new Alexis Carrington on Dynasty?
April 22nd, 2019 under Nicollette Sheridan, The CW. [ Comments: 1 ]


Back in February, The CW announced that Nicolette Sheridan was leaving the role of Alexis Carrington to be with her dying mother. Which left us wondering how Dynasty was going to handle her absence on the show.

A few episodes ago, her son with Blake, who was kidnapped when he was a toddler, finally came back home and you can say he has some mental issues. When he found out that his mother hired someone to impersonate him, he got very angry with his mother, understandably. Therefore, he forced her face first into the fire in her fireplace and held her down.

She did not die and she needed facial reconstrunction because of her injuries. On Friday, they took off the bandages and we found who will be playing the role of Alexis Carrinton from now on. To see who it is, then click here!

Riverdale remembered Luke Perry tonight
March 6th, 2019 under Archie Comics, The CW. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight was the first episode of Riverdale to air on The CW since Luke Perry’s shocking death due to a massive stroke on Monday. They made sure to let everyone know that he might be gone but he will never be forgotten.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the drama’s creator, declared earlier today, “Tonight’s episode of #Riverdale finds Fred doing what he does best–helping Archie. It is dedicated to Luke, as all episodes will be for the rest of our run. 💔❤️🏆” Which is a sweet way to remember their dad on the show.

No word yet how they will handle his death on the show, but I am sure Fred Andrews will get a proper send off. Right, now we just need to let them all mourn because they lost a dear friend.
