I was a big fan of the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, which last aired in 2007 (not counting the reunion special in 2013). In that show, Carson Kressley (fashion), Jai Rodriguez (culture), Kyan Douglas (grooming), Ted Allen (food & wine), & Thom Felicia (design) teamed up to take straight men and turn them into…well, just better groomed & dressed straight men in better living conditions. Men who lived in messy houses and ate ramen or mac n cheese every night, had scraggly hair or unkempt beard, who wanted to clean up some for a special woman in their life (or to FIND a special woman) or their families, etc. Jai has been in some movies (& maybe TV?), Carson is everywhere it seems, I see Kyan all the time giving makeovers on the Rachael Ray Show, and Ted Allen is all over Food Network. The only one I haven’t seen anything of is Thom. But regardless, the show was a breakout hit and definitely launched a few careers.

Now it’s back as Queer Eye season six, taking place in and around Atlanta, Georgia, instead of New York. The show will touch on everything from LGBTQ rights to making farm-to-table foods and more. With this new season comes a new Fab Five: Tan France (fashion), Karamo Brown (culture), Jonathan Van Ness (grooming), Antoni Porowski (food & wine), & Bobby Berk (design). I don’t know anything about these guys, but I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be as entertaining as the original five!

Early this morning, Netflix dropped the entire sixth season, which means you can go now and binge-watch to your heart’s content.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Librarians, 9-1-1, Guy’s Grocery Games, Law & Order: SVU, Property Brothers, The Amazing Race, Chicago PD, Corporate, & Match Game.

On last week’s episode of The Flash, Barry discovered that Big Sir had been framed and found some forensic evidence that would have cleared him. Barry asked Joe to work on Big Sir’s case, but the gang was busy trying to take down a Meta who was wreaking havoc in Central City with his ability to shrink things. However, it turned out that Barry’s suspect and the new Meta were one in the same, and during the confrontation, the Meta managed to shrink Ralph and Cisco. Meanwhile, Cecile discovered that her pregnancy had given her temporary telepathic powers — the ability to hear other people’s thoughts — which made Joe a bit uneasy, but she was able to help with the case. In the end, the group managed to catch the Meta, but he refused to confess to the crime Big Sir had been framed for. So Barry took matters into his own hands, speeding Big Sir out of the country, to freedom. However, when Barry returned to his cell, he learned that the warden had installed an extra security camera and now had visual proof that Barry was The Flash. The warden drugged Barry, took him to a secret location, and called Amunet to let her know he had a new metahuman for her.

Why does Amunet want Barry? What other metahumans does she have in her possession, and what does she plan to do with them? Will the gang discover what has happened to Barry, and can they save him? And even if Barry does escape, how will he clear his name and prevent the warden from revealing the truth about The Flash?

On tonight’s episode, “True Colors,” after hearing that Amunet has struck a deal to buy all of the metahumans in Iron Heights, Barry must decide if he should expose his powers in order to save his cellmates. After a visit from an old friend, Ralph is reminded of his shady past and wonders if he’s really a changed man.

See what Berry decides tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, This Is Us, LA to Vegas, The Mick, Black Lightning, and The Detour.

Tonight, Cinemax’s over-the-top action/adventure spy drama Strike Back returns for its fifth season on the network, with an all-new cast. The series follows the exploits of Section 20, a top-secret branch of the British Defense Intelligence service that takes on risky missions around the globe. This isn’t the first time the series has changed things up. The protagonist of the first season – which Cinemax aired as Strike Back: Origins several years after the current series premiered – had a different protagonist, and he passed the torch to Sergeants Stonebridge and Scott in the first season of the Cinemax series. Now, with Strike Back: Retribution, it’s time for the torch to be passed once again to new cast of characters.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every iteration of this series thus far. When the series moved to Cinemax, they really amped up the action and also added some humor. I look forward to meeting the new team, seeing what threat Section 20 must take down, and what exciting missions await the soldiers this season. It looks as though the series will be keeping the same US/UK dynamic of the previous four Cinemax seasons – partnering up US Joint Special Operations Command Sergeant Samuel Wyatt (Daniel MacPherson, The Shannara Chronicles) with British Army/ex-United Kingdom Special Forces Sergeant Thomas “Mac” McAllister (Warren Brown, Luther) – while also expanding out the team a bit this season. The rest of the main characters include British Army Captain Natalie Reynolds (Roxanne McKee, Dominion); Lance Corporal Gracie Novin (Alin Sumarwata, Neighbours) of Australian Army Special Operations Command; British Army Colonel Adeena Donovan (Nina Sosanya, W1A, Marcella), the leader of the revived Section 20; and Lance Corporal Will Jensen (Phil Dunster, Murder on the Orient Express) of the British Army Intelligence Corps.

On tonight’s premiere, members of Section 20 are called back into action when a new threat puts the world in danger.

Check out the season premiere tonight on Cinemax at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Absentia, Altered Carbon, Child Support, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and The Graham Norton Show.

Chuck Lorre Hints at The Big Bang Theory/Young Sheldon Crossover

The Big Bang Theory may potentially be looking to end its series, but Young Sheldon is still very much in its infancy and already enjoying a lot of success. The original series is the no.1 comedy in terms of viewership, while Young Sheldon is the no.1 new comedy. The problem with a crossover is the 30-year time difference between the two shows. So it would be a tricky task indeed to transport characters from a small Texas town three decades earlier to modern-day Pasadena. That doesn’t mean that adult versions of Young Sheldon characters couldn’t show up at all, of course.

Lorre says no

Being a spinoff show, Young Sheldon has a lot to thank its predecessor for, so it would be a treat to see a crossover between the two series before The Big Bang Theory drifts off into the sunset. Chuck Lorre, creator of both shows, had previously insisted that a crossover would be unlikely to happen. Fans shouldn’t be too surprised to see some of their favourite Young Sheldon characters make the occasional appearance in Pasadena, however.

Tonight, the fourth season of the hilarious Canadian comedy Schitt’s Creek makes its U.S. debut on Pop. The series follows the misadventures of the self-obsessed Rose family, who suddenly found themselves broke and were forced to leave their lavish life in a mansion and move to the small backwoods town of Schitt’s Creek. Johnny (Eugene Levy) comanages the dingy roadside motel where the Roses now live. Meanwhile, his wife, former soap-star Moira (Catherine O’Hara), is constantly dreaming of returning to their former luxurious lifestyle. The couple’s spoiled twenty-something year-old children, David (Daniel Levy) and Alexis (Annie Murphy), were forced to make the best of their situation, though not without a lot of complaining. Alexis went back to school to get her high school diploma while also working at the local veterinary office owned by Dr. Ted. Meanwhile, David opened an eclectic shop in town with business partner Patrick. As the third season came to a close, Alexis had decided to quit her job as she prepared to graduate and head to college. Meanwhile, David and Patrick admitted that they had feelings for one another and shared their first kiss.

The new season picks up the following day and doesn’t miss a beat. I had forgotten just how much I loved the Roses, as well as the town’s many other offbeat characters, such as unmotivated motel clerk Stevie (Emily Hampshire, 12 Monkeys) and dimwitted town mayor Roland (Chris Elliott). I look forward to seeing more of Moira and her crazy wigs and misguided attempts at fitting in with the townsfolk; seeing how David balances his business and romantic lives with co-worker Patrick, and how he deals with the demons from his dating past; seeing how Alex deals with college, and if there’s a possibility of a reunion with Dr. Ted; and seeing what kind of craziness at the motel that Johnny and Stevie have to deal with. This show is such a light, fun watch that always leaves me wanting to immediately binge more episodes.

On tonight’s premiere, “Dead Guy in Room 4,” Moira feels responsible for a hotel guest’s death; David and Patrick make their romance official.

See how the hotel guest died and why Moira feels responsible tonight on Pop at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, American Housewife, Match Game, The Amazing Race, The X-Files, 9-1-1, Riverdale, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, Let’s Get Physical, Waco, The Magicians, Happy!, The Librarians, and Mosaic.
