What To Watch – Friday, January 12, 2018

We love Friday TV because we love MacGyver and Marvel’s Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D. but otherwise, we struggle to fill the night.  So, we are going to give Taken a chance and see what happens.  Otherwise, not much to look at here, friends.

What To Watch – Thursday, January 11, 2018

Not a great night for TV, friends.  We’re going with The 23rd Annual Critics Choice Awards, mainly because the remarkable Gal Gadot is being given an award from her Wonder Woman director, Patty Jenkins.  The only other thing that kind of interests us tonight, Inside The Actors Studio, wherein James Lipton will pepper Ted Danson with questions in his slightly hushed, trademark style. I am curious what Ted’s favorite curse word is.

First Look: The Brave – Grounded (Ep 111)

Today, NBC posted pictures for next week’s The Brave episode, “Grounded.”

This is the episode description given: “With Patricia (Anne Heche) out of commission, Noah (Tate Ellington) is at the helm of the D.I.A. when FARC revolutionaries take control of a flight in Colombia. When negotiations mean life or death for the passengers on board, Hannah (Sofia Pernas) must make her return to the field. Also starring Mike Vogel (Adam Dalton), Demetrius Grosse (Ezekiel “Preach” Carter), Noah Mills (Joseph “McG” McGuire), and Hadi Tabbal (Amir Al-Raisani). Guest Starring Brett Tucker (Dr. Xander Martin), Jonathan Medina (Lalo Mahecha), Idara Victor (Elena Bernal), Vannessa Vasquez (Mari Calera) and Jos Viramontes (Edgar Triana).”

From the pictures below, it seems like Jaz is undergoing some kind of rehabilitation and Campbell, from the description, isn’t quite cleared from outing Jaz’s identity in the last episode. Like we said in our recap of “Desperate Measures,” there will be consequences and ramifications! Continue reading “First Look: The Brave – Grounded (Ep 111)”

What To Watch – Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Magic Wednesdays are officially a thing.  With The Librarians still chugging along for a few more weeks and season premiere of The Magicians tonight, we don’t even know what to do with ourselves. Add in more Vikings and Knightfall and Wednesdays are over flowing with watchable TV right now!

First Look – Photos for Rise

(Photo by: NBCUniversal)

Rise, the new NBC drama set to premiere on Tuesday, March 20 at 9pm, will blow your doors off.  Featuring heartfelt, sincere and impassioned performances from its leads, in particular Josh Radnor who stars as English teacher turned school theater director, Lou Mazzuchelli, Rise will make you experience highs and lows and all the feels in between.

While not packed wall to wall with songs like some may be anticipating (this is NOT Glee), when the young cast members do open their mouths, their voices are amazing; keep an eye out on Auli’i Cravalho (Moana), Damon J. Gillespie (Inside Amy Schumer but basically this is his first acting gig), Amy Forsyth (The Path) and Ted Sutherland (this looks like his first regular series but he’s had several one shot appearances including on Law & Order: SVU), as the breakout young cast members.  Below are the first look photos from the Pilot Episode.

The official show info from the release … “From Jason Katims, executive producer and showrunner of “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood,” and “Hamilton” producer Jeffrey Seller comes a heartening new drama about finding inspiration in unexpected places. When dedicated teacher and family man Lou Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor) sheds his own self-doubt and takes over the school’s lackluster theater department, he galvanizes not only the faculty and students but the entire working-class town. Inspired by a true story.

The cast includes Josh Radnor, Rosie Perez, Auli’i Cravalho, Damon J. Gillespie, Marley Shelton, Rarmian Newton, Ted Sutherland, Amy Forsyth, Casey Johnson, Taylor Richardson, Joseph Tippett, Shirley Rumierk.”

What To Watch – Tuesday, January 9, 2018

We’re still a week away from the return of new episodes from the Arrow-verse so in the meantime, we’re soothing ourselves with a repeat viewing of the Crisis on Earth-X crossover event, which is really worth a second viewing.

Also tonight, the 24th Cycle of America’s Next Top Model premieres, featuring the return of Tyra Banks who has come to save her signature show.  Also premiering tonight, Undercover High, a thought piece on A&E that asks, “if given the chance, would you go back to HS  to see what kids are facing today?”
