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, ABC premieres the new series The Crossing. Sheriff Jude Ellis (Steve Zahn, War for the Planet of the Apes) is called to investigate when hundreds of bodies start washing ashore in his small fishing town in the Pacific Northwest. The bodies are not wearing any lifejackets, and no ship or aircraft can be found. It’s like these people just appeared out of nowhere. As Homeland Security Agent Emma Ren (Sandrine Holt, Homeland, Mr. Robot) interviews the 47 survivors, they all have the same story — that they are refugees from a war that takes place in America nearly 200 years in the future. Are these people telling the truth? How is this even possible?
The series also stars Natalie Martinez (Secrets & Lies, Kingdom), Georgina Haig (Once Upon a Time), Tommy Bastow (Harley and The Davidson), Rob Campbell (Chicago Med), Rick Gomez (Band of Brothers, Justified), Marcuis W. Harris (Animal Kingdom), Grant Harvey (The Secret Life of the American Teenager), Jay Karnes (The Shield), Simone Kessell (Of Kings and Prophets), Kelley Missal (One Life to Live), Luc Roderique, and Bailey Skodje (A Christmas to Remember).
I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere, which ABC had made available early online. The series wastes no time jumping right into the mystery of where/when these refugees have come from and why they are here. It also launches some new questions as to what exactly they are running from and how that threat may be linked to the present time. The pilot introduces some of the main characters, and we start to get a glimpse into their various relationships, which will no doubt be explored in more detail in future episodes. I really liked the small, remote fishing town setting, as that adds a level of mystery and creepiness to the events. I look forward to seeing more of this show, and I hope they continue this trend of both giving viewers answers, while also spurring on new questions.
On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” Sheriff Jude Ellis and DHS agent Emma Ren team up to investigate 47 refugees who wash up in a small fishing village, claiming to be fleeing a war taking place 180 years in the future.
Check out this new haunting drama tonight on ABC at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Good Girls, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Terror, and UnREAL.
