In light of all the mandatory sitting at home by ourselves that’s happening right now, I decided to try something I’ve never done before: I actually watched all those cookie cutter crime shows that TV networks renew for decades on end and grandmas watch during daytime reruns for some reason. I often say I “watch […]

The new TV season is upon us! As we mourn the slaughter of all the great shows that had to die so these ones could live (RIP, For the People and Whiskey Cavalier; you were too good for this world), it’s time to give the new kids a shot. I gave each new show at […]

The new TV season is upon us! As we mourn the slaughter of all the great shows that had to die so these ones could live (RIP, Speechless), let’s see if there’s anything worth watching in this new crop. I gave each new show 2 episodes to win me over and listed them below in […]

All in all, there actually aren’t as many new shows this fall as you might expect. Networks seem to be playing it a little bit cooler with the cancellation trigger (or at least trying to) and a startling number of shows making their season debuts this month already have at least a year of existence […]

The five major broadcast television networks arranged in a list in order of how appealing the previews for their new fall shows are, overall… LEAST: NBC NBC has historically been my favorite of the broadcast networks. Not only were they the home of The West Wing, E.R., Cheers, Friends, Frasier, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, […]

I’m all in on FOX’s new sports drama about the first woman to play Major League Baseball. There’s something about the recipe of non-procedural, non-genre, non-soap dramas that network TV hasn’t gotten right in years outside of the work of Jason Katims. Creator Dan Fogelman has offered up two possible solutions this fall and, though […]

“Successful” Canadian comedians Colin Munch and Chris Wilson discuss the season premiere of Season 28 of The Simpsons, how weird The Simpsons is now, what shows are similar to but better than The Simpsons, and how old they are/feel. Colin Munch can be found on Twitter @ColinMunch and Instagram @ceemunch, he writes the weekly video […]

Since its premiere, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has consistently been one of the best ensemble comedies on network TV. Which made its decision to start Season 4 focusing on only two of its main characters incredibly gutsy. By mixing up the usual formula and taking Jake and Holt out of New York, and putting them in suburban […]

That’s it, the network TV season is over. I would ask how you felt about it but, let’s be honest, you don’t watch network TV anymore. You watch Game of Thrones and, if you’re really cool, you maybe downloaded Horace & Pete (if you haven’t, you should). You’re a young, busy, hip person; you don’t […]

Was that the most fun I’ve had watching television in a really long time? Honestly, maybe. I usually don’t watch the NBC live musicals because the little I’ve seen of them has trended disappointing with too much stunt casting and boring musical choices (not only was Carrie Underwood terribly suited to Maria but The Sound […]

I still have high hopes for The Grinder but I found episodes two through four to be disappointing after the premiere. I still think Rob Lowe is killing it, but I was hoping the other characters would be more fleshed out at this point and I am getting a little tired of the constant comparisons […]

After a strong second season, Brooklyn Nine Nine is back – to a disappointingly uneven start. Despite a lot of good individual scenes or one-liners, the episode overall felt unfocused and rushed. (A few light spoilers ahead). Last season, Holt was reassigned to the NYPD’s PR department, and Gina volunteered to go with him. Watching […]

The Grinder was really good! To be honest, I had some reservations about The Grinder. With Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock off the air, The Mindy Project and Community going online, and failed new comedies like Bad Judge and more in recent years, I’d kind of lost hope that we’d see many good, new […]

Smart self-awareness and a charming cast help Grandfathered stand out despite being a very standard formula network sitcom. Paired with the far-funnier Grinder in the new FOX Tuesday lineup (remember the 2012 FOX Tuesday lineup? Those were the days), the two shows form a strange 90s heartthrob-fuelled nostalgia block with both Rob Lowe and John […]

I am going to be brief, Scream Queens is garbage. Queens was created by Ryan Murphy (Glee, American Horror Story), Brad Falchuk (Glee), and Ian Brennan (Glee). The show starts in 1995 with a young woman giving birth in a tub at a sorority house. When her sisters find her bloody in the tub, they […]

FOX’s beloved hipster comedy once reigned as my favourite show on TV, without competition. In 2012- the year that encompassed the last half of the first season, when the show really hit its stride, and the first half of the second season, when it really took off- it nearly swept the My TV Awards, winning […]

This was a great year of TV. It was a massively terrible year for network TV with few new hits and tons of stupid cancellations (6 shows on this list have already been cancelled or are in their final season) but it was still a great year of TV because, while the executives were making […]

Brooklyn Nine Nine (FOX) After binge-watching this comedy series over the summer, I eagerly awaited the second season. It did not disappoint. The characters are zany without being obnoxious. The strong ensemble cast was only enhanced by some brilliant guest stars (including Kyra Sedgwick, perfectly cast as Captain Holt’s nemesis). There wasn’t an episode so […]

1-Fargo (F/X) I was hesitant to start this show, and after the first episode was a mirror image of the events from the film, I stopped watching. After hearing some buzz to the contrary, I pushed forward as the show had come to an end, and boy was I glad. Fargo was a fantastic twist […]

How great has The Mindy Project been this season? Seriously. It’s settled down into the actuality of the Mindy + Danny relationship with aplomb. They’ve even managed to eke out a bit of a workplace comedy vibe – using the considerable talents of Adam Pally (as Peter) to amp up everyone else from dragging supporting […]

This week’s Sleepy Hollow had a lot of potential to move the story forward, which it unfortunately didn’t take. While the episode was still very entertaining, the show is starting to feel like it’s stalling. (Spoilers ahead). One of the problems this episode encountered was the death of Caroline, a colonial reenactor, and apparently very […]

So literally everyone’s been telling me to watch Bob’s Burgers. I’ve heard how smart and funny it is. So I finally decided to give it a try. And I honestly really liked it. Though I want to give myself some time to really get into and see what it’s all about, I thought it was […]

I wanted to like Mulaney. I really, really wanted to like it. John Mulaney is one of my favorite comedians out there at the moment, and so it pains me to say that I didn’t enjoy the pilot of his new sitcom. It was awkward, the characters were underdeveloped, and the pacing was weird. The […]

Gracepoint is a gripping examination on how a small town reacts to the tragic murder of a young boy. It’s well written. It features gorgeous scenery. And it has an amazing cast, led by David Tennant and Anna Gunn, and including an impressive ensemble cast. Its biggest problem is it’s a remake of the BBC’s […]

I really wanted to love Fox’s Gotham. It’s about Batman! It stars Ryan Atwood! It takes a unique look at the city that built the man! And there are things to love here. It’s visually stunning. Like… really awesome. In a comic book landscape that runs the gamut from cheesy to realistic to hyper realistic, […]
