Quick Take: THE DETOUR S2 on TBS is still amazing

TBS’ THE DETOUR was the biggest surprise for me last season among a 5-comedy surprise that was their whole line-up of new shows. The Jason Jones / Natalie Zea comedy followed the misadventures of The Parker family after a vacation is derailed by Nate’s (Jones) secret unemployment and plan for revenge. As they made their way from upstate New York to Florida, by van, each week chronicled a new misstep while Nate faced scrutiny in a windowless-room. The big surprise

My Take on…IN BED WITH SIMON on FYI

On IN BED WITH SIMON, airing Tuesday nights on FYI, Simon Marcel Badinter (the French romance expert who co-hosts “The Rendezvous” on iHeartRadio) pulls couples off the street and into his bed to chat about relationship and romance issues faced by singles and couples in today’s dating world. “Was it love at first sight?” he asks people. “Who is your hall pass?” is another question he’s tackled. After a career in radio that started with Simon picking up the phone

Kalama Epstein talks Noah, Jude, and THE FOSTERS

One of the highlights of THE FOSTERS over the seasons has been watching Jude grow up – and all the struggles that come with it.  We watched his first love with Connor fall apart when Connor left town. While it was hard for Jude, he seems to be recovering from that loss pretty well as his relationship with Noah (Kalama Epstein) grows deeper. The teenage boys are finding themselves, experimenting with recreational drugs, causing headaches for Jude’s moms Lena and

My Take On…THE GOOD FIGHT on CBS All Access

When THE GOOD WIFE came to an end at the end of the 2016-2017 TV schedule, I was ready to see it go – not because the Kings had run out of ideas or I was ready to say good bye to this cast, but because it had functioned on high cylinders for 7 seasons and I never wanted it to overstay its welcome. When I heard that the Kings (Michelle and Robert, two incredibly smart humans that I trust

Quick Take: DOUBT on CBS

Katherine Heigl returns to TV in CBS’s DOUBT (2/15 10/9c), a show about a tough as nails lawyer who kind of screws things up a bit by falling in love with the guy she’s defending, who may or may not be guilty.  Coming from Tony Phelan and Joan Rater, most recently of Shondaland, the series also stars Elliout Gould, Dule Hill, Dreama Walker, Kobi Libii, Stephen Pasquale, and Laverne Cox. Heigl is lovely and believable as Sadie Ellis, the lawyer

First Look: UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT S3 Teaser

To announce the release date of the third season of UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT (May 19), and to celebrate Bey’s Grammys performance last night, Netflix released a teaser video featuring Titus Andromedon putting on his best Beyonce-in-LEMONADE. I am so excited for this show to come back – Season 1 was a surprise favorite, Season 2 was hilarious, and I’m sure Season 3 will be amazing!

Marvel Is Kung Fu Fighting with IRON FIST

Marvel’s crop of streaming exclusives for Netflix have been a big hit that have expanded the reach of the Marvel Cinematic Universe well beyond the big screen. With the ability to have the creative freedom often only afforded by premium cable channels, the company can tell new tales of less well-known heroes without the same stakes of a big-budget motion picture. As a result, the publisher has managed to make typically second-tier characters like Luke Cage and Jessica Jones into

LEGION’s Amber Midthunder previews FX’s ambitious new series

I’ve already expressed my undying love for LEGION on FX, which premieres tonight at 10/9c. When presented with the opportunity to chat with series star Amber Midthunder about her mysterious character, Kerry, I jumped at the chance.  Having been mind-forked by the first few episodes, I was having trouble wrapping my head around just what to say about the show beyond “hey I love it,” so I took the chance to put it in her hands.  Asked what LEGION is,
