What To Watch: 04/14/2022

The Schuriverse expands to Florida as the latest from the braintrust behind Brooklyn Nine-Nine travels to the Sunshine State to find Claudia O’Doherty (Love) as an alligator hunter who recruits a down-on-his-luck schemer played by BNN‘s Doug Judy himself, Craig Robinson. There’s also a docu-series about beauty, the return of a fictional family we are excited to have back and a reality one that we’re less enthusiastic about its return.

KATHERINE’S PICK:
Killing It [Peacock]
Craig Robinson and Claudia O’Doherty star in a comedy I wish I thought of first: a man with a lot on the line teams up with an Australian woman to capture Florida pythons in hopes of gaining a $20,000 prize. 

JASON’S PICK:
Not So Pretty [HBO Max]
Narrated by Keke Palmer, this four-part docu-series examines the hidden dangers and costs of the personal care industry–looking at cosmetics and beyond.

FIONA’S PICK:
Legacies [The CW, 9p]
Tonight is a special one! As Hope continues to struggle with her humanity she must face the people who mean the most to her, her family. It’s going to be a big reunion episode with lots of fan favorites from The Originals

BRAD’S PICK:
Welcome to Flatch! [Fox, 9:30p]
Every small town in Ohio needs a vape and magic shop, and lo-and-behold, Flatch gets one! Meanwhile, Dylan rediscovers his passion for magic. I’d say what could possibly go wrong, but it’s a given at this point that something will. I love this show almost as much as I love Reservation Dogs’ first season. More people should be watching, especially as we should all know anything with Aya Cash is worth the time.

BUT, WAIT, THERE’S MORE:

  • Most of the cast of the groundbreaking Nickelodeon 2000 teen sitcom The Brothers Garcia are back approximately 20 years later for a series with a somewhat different vibe for The Garcias, which finds the extended clan sharing a summer house for two months.
  • If it’s a skill, there’s a reality competition for it (we mean, there’s even a special show for people who make cakes that look like things). For skills in a clay medium, it’s The Great Pottery Showdown returning on HBO Max.
  • The fear of liminal spaces has apparently inspired a whole line of horror video games. The new Discovery documentary Mysteries of the Abandoned taps into the hard-to-pin-down emotion.
  • In your heart you had to know the family K weren’t gone, even if they didn’t implore us to keep up with them anymore. The Kardashians starts (or returns) on Hulu.
  • The Mexican family drama Cecilia examines a family so dependent on the titular character that they fall apart when she suffers a breakdown. Presumably those around her will be down on their knees, begging her please to come home. And with that, the Screen Scholars staff (the royal we) apologizes and will suggest no more.
