Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
I really enjoyed ABC’s new series American Crime when I first saw the pilot last summer and have been anxiously waiting for it to air. Rewatching the series premiere last week, I was quickly reminded why. In the opener, divorced couple Russell and Barbara learn that their son has been killed and his wife raped during a robbery at their home. Barbara quickly put herself in the spotlight, contacting a reporter to tell her story. Meanwhile, the police followed a lead that a Hispanic male was seen leaving the scene—and arrested Tony Gutierrez, who couldn’t have been more cooperative and seemingly innocent. Meanwhile, Russ learned that his perfect son was actually a drug dealer, and that was likely what lead to his death.
This series is very thought-provoking and shows how people’s biases and stereotypes can be completely wrong and that drug addicts and dealers come in all shapes and sizes. When young, blonde, white Aubry is battered and beaten, the police immediately ask her if it was her black boyfriend, Carter, who did this to her. Barb has also proven herself to be quite racist and predjudiced, so I’m really looking forward to seeing how she reacts when the truth about her son comes out and what she does when she confronts her son’s killers. I’m also interested to see if Tony will be a victim of circumstances and profiling—he certainly doesn’t seem like he would last a day in prison—or if will he be cleared and set free.
This show has a great cast giving some stellar performances, and I’m looking forward to seeing how all the drama unfolds.
On tonight’s episode, “Episode Two,” Barb and Russ face Carter and Aubry, who are reunited for the first time since being arrested more than a day ago. Meanwhile, a terrified Tony lands in juvenile detention, testing the resolve of his father, Alonzo; investigators find an existing warrant for Hector’s arrest in Mexico; and emerging facts about Matt and Gwen strain the relationship between their parents.
Learn what facts come out about Matt and Gwen tonight on ABC at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The Odd Couple, Grey’s Anatomy, The Blacklist, The Slap, Archer, Dig, and Wizard Wars.
