My favorite genre of TV has to be the procedural – cops, detectives, crime scene, & the like. So when I got an email about screeners for a new lighthearted detective comedy/procedural on WGN America, Carter. Jerry O’Connell stars as Harley Carter, an actor playing a detective on a hit TV show who retreats to his hometown after an embarrassing public meltdown in Hollywood. (Yes, it sounds similar to Take Two, with the actor/public meltdown/becoming a detective in real life. But I’m okay with that. LOL) Once there, he uses what he’s learned on set to help out his childhood best friend, Sam Shaw (Sydney Poitier Heartsong), a police detective. He also ropes in their third best friend, Dave Leigh (Kristian Bruun), who reluctantly goes along with Harley’s sometimes crazy, sometimes dangerous schemes.

I’ve seen most of the first 10-episode season, and while it isn’t perfect, it’s a fun, enjoyable show that is an escape from the real world, which is just kind of what we want sometimes, isn’t it?

On tonight’s episode, “Koji the Killer,” Harley Carter returns to his Ontario hometown after a public scandal, only to find that his housekeeper has been accused of murder.

Check out this fun new comedic procedural tonight on WGN America at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Got Talent, Chopped, & Making It.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/20/17

Tonight, TBS’s island survival comedy Wrecked returns for its second season with two back-to-back episodes. In the first season, a plane crash-landed on a deserted island, leaving a group of strangers to band together in order to survive. However, this bond between the group quickly started to devolve. As the season came to a close, a ship was approaching the island, and everyone was excited that they were going to be saved, but Steve didn’t want to leave. He pulled out a gun and killed Kurt and afterwards took Danny hostage. Owen and Danny managed to overtake Steve and threw him and his supporters into the pit. Afterwards, the boat arrived on shore, but the survivors soon discovered that the men were actually pirates and they were here to kidnap Danny…who is the son of a billionaire!

Tonight we finally get a continuation to that cliffhanger! How is the group going to react to the news that Danny is actually the son of a billionaire? How did the pirates find him, and how do they plan to claim their ransom? What will the pirates do to the rest of the survivors? And will this development cause the group to let Steve and his crew out of the pit?

I really enjoyed the first season of Wrecked. It’s like a wacky, fun version of Lost, with a great blend of parody, pop-culture references, sight gags, and just witty dialogue and fun characters. I checked out tonight’s first episode, and I’m really happy we get two tonight, because that first half just flew by way too quickly. I am really looking forward to the rest of the season!

On tonight’s first episode, “Ransom,” the newly arrived pirates try to ransom Danny while marooning the others; Steve tries to make amends for murdering a survivor. Then, in “Poison,” Pack tries to negotiate a truce with the pirates; Steve pitches Danny on a new business venture.

Catch the two-episode season premiere tonight on TBS starting at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording iZombie, The Bold Type, and Animal Kingdom.
