Tuesday September 11th – What You Should Watch

11 Sep

Finally – Premieres Begin Tonight.

NBC is first out of the gate with Go On, The New Normal and Parenthood.

Did you catch the pilot of  “Go On” this summer during the Olympics? As I said I give all new shows three episodes, this one has 2 more and its a goner.  I love Mathew Perry, but this show isn’t really that funny and the premise wore thin by the end of the pilot.

I watched the pilot for “The New Normal” on Hulu last week, it has it’s moments, but somehow it just feels like on big PSA for gay couples and their right to have babies. Which isn’t surprising since it is from Ryan Murphy, the same man that turned Glee into one long PSA last season.  2 more and its a goner. Ellen Barkin is the Sue Sylvester of this Murphy production.

Parenthood, loved the movie, can’t get into the show, but I am setting the DVR and giving it another chance.

The Voice continues tonight on NBC at 8, and the top 4 perform on So You Think You Can Dance on FOX at 8.

The Closer – The Leak revealed

7 Aug

If you have been a faithful viewer of The Closer like I have, then the last few weeks have been difficult, last week Mama Johnson died, this week the leak was revealed and next week is the end. 

Brenda Leigh has been one of my all time favorite characters, Kyra Sedgewick was made for this role.

The reveal of the leak, was, as expected, it was Gabriel via his girlfriend, but that didn’t make it any easier to take. 

Gabriel was new to his role when Brenda Leigh came to Los Angeles, he was assigned to drive her around and quickly became her staunchest supporter. He helped her when budget cuts threatened the department, she protected him when he was wrongly accused of shooting an unarmed man.

Brenda didn’t accept his resignation, and we know Corey Reynolds, the actor who plays Gabriel is not continuing onto the spin off Major Crimes.  So how will the character be written out, will he die in the line of duty next week? Will he quit when Chief Johnson leaves?

Has the departure of a TV character bummed  you out? If so, which one?
