The 15 Most Promising TV Shows of the 2016/17 Season

The 15 Most Promising TV Shows of the 2016/17 Season
This week the networks announced their new schedules for the next TV season and I have done the hard work of watching every single trailer and reading every single synopsis to put together this comprehensive list of all the shows you might care about. You’re welcome. Take a look at the list below and let... Read more »

Series Premiere: The Grinder Review

Series Premiere: The Grinder Review
FOX really upped their comedy game this season. After hitting it out of the park with Grandfathered, they followed it up with The Grinder, another solid sitcom. Now, The Grinder might not have the same heart as Grandfathered, but it does boast its own, unique draw: the comedic stylings of Savage and Lowe. The premise... Read more »

Series Premiere: Grandfathered Review

Series Premiere: Grandfathered Review
Networks have long pined for the definitive formula for what makes a successful show. Hence the reason so many lame shows look like carbon copies of far better shows. But, if you showed up at a network with the formula of John Stamos+a baby+that kid from Drake and Josh, no not that one, the other... Read more »

Series Premiere: Scream Queens Review

Series Premiere: Scream Queens Review
Lets just get this out of the way before we get started; yes, it appears that Ryan Murphy and Co. sat down and said, “hey, lets just combine our two most successful shows into one show and then go dive into our piles of money.” And thus, Scream Queens was born; with all the campy... Read more »

Series Premiere: Minority Report Review

Series Premiere: Minority Report Review
First things first, I went into watching Minority Report as a pretty big fan of the movie. And I don’t know if that helped our hurt in my overall assessment. Or perhaps it didn’t effect it all. It stunk pretty bad all on its own. For those who haven’t seen the movie (which you should... Read more »

Series Premiere: The Last Man on Earth Review

Series Premiere: The Last Man on Earth Review
What would you do if you were the last person on earth? If you’re Phil Miller (Will Forte), the answer is destroy stuff and swear off pants. Also, lots of drinking. But, accepting the fact you are the living person would come with its own set of steps. Step one, denial. Step two, utter insanity. The... Read more »

Series Premiere: Empire Review

Series Premiere: Empire Review
I will preface this review by reminding everyone that I am a white woman with limited expertise of the hip-hop mogul community. Unfortunately, I have the overwhelming suspicion that the creators of Empire don’t either. Its like the creators made a list of all the most stereotypical black clichés and then made sure they packed... Read more »

Series Premiere: Mulaney Review

Series Premiere: Mulaney Review
I really wanted to like this show. I’m a fan of John Mulaney, I respect the idea of making an old-school (if you consider 90s “old” which actually really depresses me) and I believe Nasim Pedrad was greatly underrated during her time on SNL. But Mulaney isn’t quite the sum of its parts. Clearly Mulaney... Read more »

Series Premiere: Gracepoint Review

Series Premiere: Gracepoint Review
It seems impossible to talk about Gracepoint without discussing that it’s (allegedly) an exact replica of the British series Broadchurch. I have never seen Broadchurch so I can’t speak to that, but its fair to point out that people who have seen Broadchurch are (loudly) wondering why it needed to be remade at all. Those... Read more »

Series Premiere: Gotham Review

Series Premiere: Gotham Review
Full disclosure, I don’t know a lot about Batman. In fact, all I do know is courtesy of Christopher Nolan and my boyfriend. But thankfully Gotham has been created to be easily accessible for Batman novices. Oh, I’m sure there are little nods to the more invested Batman fans (or at least there should be... Read more »
