It’s still really cold here, but at least we haven’t gotten any more snow! I’m already missing some of my favorite shows this week, although there are enough on to keep me busy! *laugh* Check out our recommendations below. 🙂
I’m so mad that Killer Women isn’t getting more episodes than it is. I adore the chemistry between Trisha Helfer’s Molly and Marc Blucas’s Dan. Last episode, it looked like they were breaking up, when he told her it would be easier if she just went to the court-ordered counseling and faked her way through it, and she told him that he wasn’t a long-running relationship kind of guy. But in the end, he sent her a picture of new running shoes, confirming that he was all in, and…after he was “shot” (ie: grazed by a bullet and then concussed by stuff falling on his head), they ended up together-together. In the case, the killer was loco… She murdered women who reminded her of her mother. She ended up kidnapping and almost killing Molly’s sister-in-law, Becca, but Molly rescued her just in time.
On tonight’s episode, “In and Out,” Molly is on the case when a famous basketball star is murdered in his home. Meanwhile, Becca plans a date night to let Billy in on some life-changing news, and Dan receives a credible tip leading to an arrest of an unlikely suspect.
Find out what life-changing news Becca gives Billy tonight on ABC at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chopped, & Cougar Town.
Megan, Kyle, & I have gotten a chance to watch the trailers & clips for all the new network shows, and we’re here to give you our opinions on what might be worth watching—based on the trailers alone. Our opinions may (most likely WILL) change after we get a chance to view the pilots, but for now, this is what we’re thinking. Check out our thoughts on the ABC trailers now, and then come back over the next few days to check out our responses to the other networks.
Let’s start off with the dramas…in alphabetical order:
Jenny: Honestly, this is probably one I’ll skip even watching the pilot, simply because I know my tastes. This is a drama through and through—much like Nashville and Scandal have turned out to be. I don’t mind a little drama for drama’s sake if it’s in a cop, law, or medical show, but when it’s all about drama, no thanks. – Most Likely 1 and Done.
Megan: This trailer left me wanting more. I’m sure there are going to be a lot of people who say that the infidelity angle has been done too many times. I am not one of those people. This a mom who feels alone in her marriage and a man that sparks something in her that she thought was gone. It’s a difficult place to be, and I’m not sure what I would do, but I do know that watching this woman’s life change around her is going to make for good TV. – Curious.
Kyle: This looks more like something that belongs on Lifetime. Seems to be very thin on plot and heavy on the sex scenes. I would have thought this was another Shonda Rhimes show based on that trailer. – Most Likely 1 and Done.
The networks just rolled out their programming for next season. To start out, check out the trailers for ABC’s new shows, and then head on over to The Futon Critic to see their schedule & read all about the new series. Let us know what you think of each trailer by voting and commenting below!
