There’s a whole lotta Hill going on tonight as two-time Oscar nominee Jonah (that still feels weird to say) takes his fourth turn at saying “we have a great show for you,” this time Future is there. Also it’s the final episode of one of … Continue reading What to Watch: 03/05/2016
Friday’s aren’t always eventful, but tell that to President Frank Underwood who returns to Netflix in complete House of Cards season style (is he bingeworthy? we think so). Otherwise, there’s the usual supernatural suspects, as well as a PBS take on a country music legend. NAVANI’S … Continue reading What to Watch: 03/04/2016
An unexpected tragedy strikes the post-apocalyptic landscape of The 100 and the resultant spectacle propels the CW program to its first Thursday night win. The night is packed with dramas — both well-received and ones that fall flat — with a pair of unconventional comedies in the … Continue reading Thursday’s Best Reviewed: The 100
Tonight’s got aliens and vikings, cops and stoners, designers and cooks, not to mention the endless drama of a synced-up Shondaland, so let’s go right into our suggestions: KATHERINE’S PICK: The Family [ABC 9p] In the pilot of this new…thriller?…a Maine politician, who made her … Continue reading What to Watch: 03/03/2016
Ok, did not see this coming. On a day when most reviewers and recappers seem to be sleeping off a bender (except for all the procedural scribes on TV Fanatic), the winner of the night comes at us from a galaxy far, far away. Animated Star … Continue reading Wednesday’s Best Reviewed: Star Wars Rebels?!?!
Deadpool remains on top as Gods of Egypt is the year’s “first bomb.” Maybe a Scholar cried her way through the inspiring, cheesy, Eddie the Eagle. This week sees the new Terrence Malick film, Tina Fey, and animals who think they’re people. Zootopia is Disney’s latest release, about … Continue reading This Weekend In Movies: 3/3/2016
This Wednesday is all about the new, as we have new characters from the actors who brought you such classic television characters as Omar Little, Joe Carroll, and Virginia Slim Chance.
Hap and Leonard [Sundance, 10p]
Based on the novels of Joe Lansdale and starring James Purefoy and Michael Kenneth Williams as the titular characters (and with Christina Hendricks!), this Southern drama (which looks hysterical) follows two friends working for a private investigator in East Texas.
Hap and Leonard [Sundance, 10p]
This quirky comedic crime drama featuring an oddball cast looks like a good time.
The Real O’Neals [ABC, 8:30p]
It’s with mixed levels of anticipation that I welcome The Real O’Neals. Its description makes it sound appealingly quirky and edgy, while its promos look ghastly and unoriginal. But Martha Plimpton is the family’s matriarch, so there’s some hope.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- Astronaut Scott Kelly (part of a pair of astronaut twins) spent well over 300 days launched into the atmosphere, a time documented by PBS in tonight’s A Year in Space
- Did you hear about the Morgan? Criminal Minds‘ heart throb investigator was nabbed by mysterious masked men at the end of last week’s episode, so now BAU takes on the search. On CBSsssss.
- ABC’s gripping, gritty American Crime has been at or near the top of every one of our Wednesday round-ups in the short time we’ve been doing the feature. Its penultimate episode should fare no different.
