TV Recap: Last Man Standing – Welcome Baxter …

Last Man Standing
“Welcome Baxter” (Episode 701)
September 28, 2018

Welcome Baxter!

The Baxter family is back!!!! I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of season 7 of Last Man Standing since it’s return to television was announced earlier this year. Last Man Standing was a show I caught every week without fail and I was utterly heartbroken when ABC cancelled it after its 6th season.

I may have been in the sea of the angry mob crying their outrage to ABC. Tim Allen and the cast bring laughs through a conservative view and the juxtaposition of their democratic neighbors and business partners. Every week this show pokes fun at politics and hot topic issues without making one side or the other the unfair butt of the joke.

There isn’t a lot of shows that can create comedy out of today’s issues without things turning ugly towards one side. I believe that is in part why Last Man Standing did so well on the air and will continue to do so on its new network. The announcement that Fox picked up Last Man Standing for a 7th season after the show had been off the air for a year was a joyous surprise to many. Not only did the show return after being cancelled over a year ago but it also switched networks, a feat that is not easily reproduced.

TV Recaps: New Amsterdam – How Can I Help You?

New Amsterdam
“Pilot” (Episode 101)
September 25, 2018

New Amsterdam is the Fall show you didn’t know you needed in your life. When I first saw a trailer for New Amsterdam, I thought, “this looks interesting, but it’s another medical drama. Do I really need that in my life?” The answer was, yes. This will be the show that keeps me begging for more and leaves me satisfied at the end of each episode.

I grew up watching ER with my family and Grey’s Anatomy has easily gotten me through the last 14 years. I didn’t think I needed another medical show in my weekly lineup, but New Amsterdam is so refreshing, it’s like a breath of fresh air. From the very beginning, I found myself cheering on the characters and sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for what happens next.

Dr. Max Goodwin’s (Ryan Eggold, Blacklist) simple statement, “How can I help you?” resonates throughout the entire episode. You can already feel that it’s the mantra, the heartbeat of the series. In a broken medical system, Dr. Goodwin tries to reinvent the wheel; only time will tell if he will succeed. In the meantime, audiences will root for the new Medical Director and the doctors ready to turn the system upside down.
