I’m a little hesitant when it comes to spin-offs, mostly because I am still ticked with some of the paths Angel’s story took post Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but I have to admit Once Upon A Time In Wonderland looks like it could far surpass the show that spawned it. [Read more...]
The premiere of Happy Town starts the series off with a bang… Well, not really a bang. There was a gun involved, but it didn’t go off… Okay, let’s start this again:
The premiere of Happy Town starts the series off on a really interesting foot, and though this mystery show didn’t lean as far towards the horror genre as I was hoping it would, hopefully it is going to head that way in the future considering we’ve got ourselves a murderer to find and the memory of a serial kidnapper still haunting the town.
Because this is an unraveling mystery, a whole bunch of questions were presented with this first episode. I figured because my memory is that of a goldfish when it comes to these things (don’t even get me started on Lost), I am going to take note of anything and everything that may come into play later on. If you couldn’t give an insignificant penny about these things then skip the list. [Read more...]
Just got done watching the series premiere of ABC’s new mockumentary family comedy and I was very impressed. Focusing on a family with just about everything, the Dad has just married young and she is a fiery Latino with a young romantic son, a gay couple that just adopted a baby girl from Vietnam, and a more traditional family with three kids and a “cool” dad.
The jokes are edgy, the pacing is quick, and the writing is super sharp. The show has a little bit of something for everyone and can appeal to a diverse demographic range. All the actors are also quite good, including the kids, with Julie Bowen and Ed O’Neill being the most recognizable leads.
I really hope this makes it, as it is as funny as Glee and even easier to relate with; even if it is a tad over the top. Let’s hope ABC keeps their heads on straight and gives it a chance, it is going head to head with the biggest hit of the year so far the fore mentioned Glee, and doesn’t cancel it early like they did to the exceptional Sons & Daughters which is of the same ilk.
