Some of our favorite Monday shows are still on hiatus but not our most favorite new show, The Brave. The Brave returns tonight to pick up right after the fall finale and Jaz’s abduction. Also new, The Good Doctor.
Today, First Look is focused on Syfy’s new show Krypton (set to premiere March 21). We got the first look at pics yesterday which in turn, we are bringing to you. Because, that’s how we roll. Gotta say, love the idea of the pre-Superman origin story.
Here is the official info on Krypton, “What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, “Krypton” follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, who is faced with a life and death conflict – save his home planet or let it be destroyed in order to restore the fate of his future grandson. With Krypton’s leadership in disarray and the House of El ostracized, Seg finds himself in a difficult position. He must redeem his family’s honor and protect the ones he loves while being challenged by familiar DC characters Brainiac (Blake Ritson) and Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos).
“Krypton” is from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and is executive produced by David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “The Dark Knight Trilogy”) through his Phantom Four banner, alongside Cameron Welsh, who serves as showrunner. In addition to Cuffe, Sipos and Ritson, the show also stars Georgina Campbell (“Broadchurch”), Elliot Cowan (“Da Vinci’s Demons”), Ann Ogbomo (“World War Z”), Rasmus Hardiker (“Your Highness”), Wallis Day (“Will”), Aaron Pierre (“Tennison”) and Ian McElhinney (“Game of Thrones”). Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
TGIF, not just because the weekend is starting but because MacGyver is back and all new tonight!! And, we get to learn how Mac and Jack met! Also on the docket, a new game show from Ricky Gervais (and hosted by Fred Savage) premieres on ABC. Ricky and Fred are reason enough for me to watch!
Today, we’re looking at a few different items including a quick trailer for The Flash (returning in 2 weeks); Netflix’s method of confirming/announcing the Bright sequel; the new music video from Bruno Mars (feat. Cardi B), and the Slender Man trailer which dropped yesterday. After the jump …
Other than the series premiere of the newest singing show, The Four: Battle for Stardom, there isn’t much doing on the tube tonight. So, I guess I’ll check it out. I like Fergie and DJ Khaled enough to warrant at least a looksie. Otherwise, check out the Costner classic, The Untouchables, stroll down Waco memory lane or watch a new S.W.A.T.
I don’t like combining news into the daily “What To Watch” but it happens over the course of a day, something gets published or released that I want you to experience with me. I am going to try to gather those items into a separate daily post which I am calling, for right now, “The Daily Download.”
Today’s offerings include 3 minutes worth of The Brave, which returns next Monday, and a trippy trailer for The Magicians (ahead of Season 3’s premiere next Wednesday).
Interesting night of TV with 2 series premieres, 1 season premiere and a bunch of new episodes of regular TV. Its almost as if we’re not in the cold wasteland of rerun hell. While I’m not particularly hot on 9-1-1, WAGS Atlanta or the X-Files, I know someone is out there (though doubtful, they like all 3 of those shows, that’s a pretty broad taste in TV).
No, for my time and money, I am The Librarians into Vikings into Knightfall and catch SEAL Team on DVR in the next day or so.
While there is still no new The Flash or DC’s Legends of Tomorrow to watch, there are new CBS procedurals so NCIS and Bull have clawed back into our What To Watch, for this week anyway. But, the thing we’re most exctied about is the series premiere of LA to Vegas, a ridiculous looking comedy starring Dylan McDermott that looks so bad its good. Also, Hunting Hitler returns for a season 3 premiere. Yes, there have been 3 seasons of people looking for an undead Hitler.
Happy New Year, Pop Culturists! Welcome to 2018. Thank goodness for The Gifted which returns tonight with new episodes. Also on tap, Season 22 of The Bachelor premieres, if that’s your thing (why is that your thing?!?), as well as college football bowls, great Twilight Zone and Breaking Bad marathon episodes.
Our final TV post of 2017 ends with recommendations of some of our favorite movies which happen to be on tonight. We are recommending Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (note the early 7:30pm start time), John Wick: Chapter 2, and for late night viewing, Apollo 13.
Thanks for joining us on our abbreviated 2017 ride and we look forward to venturing through the Pop Culture landscape with you in 2018!!!
