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!
Tonight, FOX kicks off the new comedy LA to Vegas, which follows the exploits of the passengers and crew aboard the Jackpot Airlines weekend flights between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Piloting the plane is Captain Dave (Dylan McDermott, American Horror Story, The Practice) – a thrice-divorced guy who’s more in love with himself than anyone else and who puts having fun above everything else. He’ll hit on passengers and joke about getting high in the cockpit. Flight attendants Ronnie (Kim Matula, The Bold and the Beautiful, UnReal) and Bernard (Nathan Lee Graham, Zoolander) aren’t that much better and don’t put a whole lot of effort into doing their jobs properly either. Some of the flight’s regular passengers include Economics professor Colin (Ed Weeks, The Mindy Project), stripper Nichole (Olivia Macklin, The Young Pope, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll), and gambler/con man Artem (Peter Stormare, American Gods, Prison Break).
I thoroughly enjoyed the few episodes I’ve seen of this series – it had me laughing out loud quite a few times. The cast is hilarious and really play really well off one another. The writers have done a great job of coming up with witty dialogue and fun situations and characters. The show’s setting allows for both ongoing developments with the recurring characters, as well as crazy new stories each week with new passengers or temporary crew members who pop in as guest stars. This is one of my favorites of the new midseason shows, and I am really looking forward to seeing more episodes!
Tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” introduces the shoestring budget airline crew and its eccentric passengers who, every weekend, take the roundtrip flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas with one goal in mind: to come back a winner. It won’t be easy, but this unlikely group of miscreants and dreamers will eventually go from being strangers on a plane to a supportive, if unconventional, family – well, at least from Friday to Sunday.
Check out the new show tonight on FOX at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, and The Mick.
