Happy Endings Season 3, Episode 1: Cazash Dummy Spillionaires

Published October 22, 2012 by tiradical20s

I love this show. SO MUCH.  It takes sitcom to a whole new level.

In the season premiere, we see the gang in new places.

  • Penny, after a tragic accident where she fell down many flights of stairs, is in an entire torso cast.
  • Max, who is taking care of Penny and advantage of her physical therapist, “miserys” her so he can get closer to her physical therapist.
  • Dave and Alex tried to casually date but realize they can’t move backwards from where they once were so they move in together.  No one thinks it’s a good idea.
  • Brad lies about not working to Jane, which angers her.  He also tries some hobbies including his marionette.

Love the song that Brad and his marionette sang at the end.

This is going to be an interesting season.

Chicago Fired from my blog

Published October 7, 2012 by tiradical20s

Sorry for the sad attempt at humor there….

I made it about 10 minutes in and then I decided Chicago Fire isn’t for me despite it’s extremely attractive cast.

I had cop dramas and it turns out, firemen dramas are pretty much the same except things are on fire sometimes.

Yeah, so no.

Sorry, guys.

Emily Owens M.D Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

Published October 2, 2012 by tiradical20s

First Impression:

Dear God, this looks just terrible….wtf is wrong with The CW for putting 2 doctor shows on in the SAME night???? Seriously???

Last Impression:

Okay, I overreacted.  The show is certainly NOT horrendous and is different enough from Hart of Dixie to be acceptable, but I still wonder why The CW decided to have 2 doctor shows.  I think that creates a lot of distension and a general battle between the two shows.  Just don’t come crying to me when Hart of Dixie or this show gets cancelled soon! Just saying.

I like Emily’s inner voice.  She’s funny, sweet and very relatable.  I also love that she isn’t a beauty queen and she is even just a little bit crazy/paranoid like the rest of us girls! Hence, relatable.  While I think this show will either be a hit or miss, it’s okay in my book…..for now.

3/5 stars…I’d even go as far to say 2.5/5 for now just because I’m worried about its ratings.

Last Resort Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

First Impression:

Not my kind of show.  What is this, LOST with army warfare???

 

Last Impression:

Still not sure if this is my kind of show, but it is certainly well acted.  The whole situation surrounding this show (Americans firing at and attempting to kill their own people, a conspiracy theory come to life) really freaks me out.  I am not sure how long I am going to give this show, but I will at least give it one more episode to figure out if I actually like it or not.  Right now I am on the brink.

The Mob Doctor Season 1, Episode 2: Family Secrets

Published September 24, 2012 by tiradical20s

Guys, it’s official.  I legitimately like this show.

Of course, I can’t really give a reason why I like it, considering it completely goes against my rule of “no doctor shows!!!”

I don’t even like Jordana Spiro that much.  I like her character, Grace, a lot, but I do NOT like Jordana Spiro.  Like, who names their kid Jordana and lives to see another day??? Honestly, people. Do you want your kid to get beat up in high school?

Right, so, in this episode, we see Grace trying to save the live of a convicted murderer and dealing with a “meet and greet” with Brett and her mom.  Obvs, Grace misses her dinner date but saves a life.  Oh, that Grace.

Looking forward to next week and fingers crossed for better ratings!!!

Raising Hope Season 3, Episode 1: Not Indecent, But Not Quite Decent Enough Proposal

Published September 24, 2012 by tiradical20s

 

I was lucky enough to preview the season premiere of Raising Hope‘s third season and I must say that I am not sorry I did!

I really like that all the shows are stepping it up this year.  After a mediocre at best second season, it’s fun to laugh again with Raising Hope.

In this episode, we see Jimmy trying to ask Sabrina to marry him! Cue the awwws and shocked gasps!  It’s a little soon for them to be getting married, I think, but they inherit Sabrina’s dead grandmothers house if they do.  Jimmy then goes through a shocking amount of trouble to find out what Sabrina’s ideal proposal would be.

Maw Maw had some good lines in this episode.  “At my funeral, fill my bellybutton with ranch dressing!”

I look forward to the rest of the season and obviously it’s premiere on October 2nd!

Guys with Kids Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

Published September 13, 2012 by tiradical20s

 

First Impression:

Looks cute.  That’s about it though….cute.  Looks like another baby comedy, nothing horribly special.

 

Last Impression:

Wrong! It wasn’t just cute, it was ADORABLE.  Jesse Bradford has been melting my heart since Bring it On, I don’t know about you guys, so it was equally as adorable to see him with a baby nearly as cute as him.  Although there was some predictable humor and dialogue in the pilot episode, I think this show is going to be different than other baby dramas we have seen.

NBC has really been exploring different outlets of comedy this season.  With the groundbreaking The New Normal, we see a surrogate/homosexual couple relationship and in this show we are exploring the against the grain stay at home dad/dad demographic.  I think this is a good thing because families are definitely not black and white like they used to be years ago, and NBC is really doing a good job to convey that to its audience.

The mix between humor and touching moments is really splendidly done in this show.  I loved the “Titanic” scene and the bathroom scene between Anthony Anderson’s character and his wife.  “WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THERE?!” Hahahaha.

Another notable line “You need to chill out, Kareem Abdul Jabbar.”

I am very pleased with this show. 4/5 stars!
