My Take On…ABC’s DIRTY DANCING

  ABC’s DIRTY DANCING is an almost shot-for-shot re-do of the classic 1987 movie of the same name.  Down to almost the exact same dialogue (watermelons included), the movie doesn’t re-boot so much as re-hashes a film we’ve already seen, and seen done way better.  Where the original featured an awesome soundtrack and creative original choreography, this new version finds the cast singing the songs instead, and the dancing? Original maybe, boring yes. Still the story of the coming of

First Look: CBS New Fall 2017 Series Trailers 

CBS released their Fall schedule earlier today and not much changed.  But they do offer us a few new shows, and they released trailers for those shows today. Quick reactions?  Zoe Perry was the PERFECT decision for YOUNG SHELDON (though I’m not sure making the show was a good decision); lots of dramas look the same as other dramas we’ve seen again and again on CBS (and in the case of the Piv’s new show, ON FOX, THIS SEASON).  Check
