Jenny’s Choice

I’m really enjoying Bob Hearts Abishola. Two episodes ago, Abishola started having romantic (not quite sexual, but going in that direction) dreams about Bob. Last week, she and Bob were chatting on their bench, in the snow, talking about the differences between America and Nigeria, and he asked her out to dinner in a really sweet moment. I loved how her family all dressed up before Bob picked her up. LOL The restaurant was kind of a snooty place, and when an older white couple looked askance at them for a moment, Bob made the joke that it was okay because they were from California. Abishola smirked and leaned over to tell them, “We’re also Jewish.” It made no sense really, but she got a kick out of it, and that made me laugh. Of course, then Bob tried to order steak and Abishola said no because of his heart. She shot down all of his decisions, and he ended up getting fish and spinach. It was totally something I could see an old married couple doing. LOL But then just as they were talking about doing something else instead of her going straight home, Bob’s sister called and said something weird was going on with their mother. After hearing the symptoms, Abishola said it sounded like their mom was having a stroke and to call 911. Sure enough, that’s what had happened. So the end of their date didn’t go like either of them thought it would, for sure! But even with such a serious topic, the show kept up the humor, sending Bob’s brother everywhere BUT the waiting area where Bob, Christina, and Abishola were waiting.

On tonight’s episode, “Tough Like a Laundromat Washing Machine,” Bob hires Abishola to take care of Dottie in his home while she recovers; Dottie has a hard time dealing with her limitations and takes it out on Abishola.

See how Abishola handles Dottie tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching 9-1-1, All Rise, Holiday Baking Championship, Rock the Block, Prodigal Son, & Christmas Cookie Challenge.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/23/19

Welcome back, fall TV! We’ve sure missed you around here! Because there’s so much on this week, we have multiple picks almost every night. Mostly we’ll feature some new shows, but some returning faves may or may not make the list as well. So check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice #1

My first pick tonight is the new drama on CBS, All Rise, although I’d coin it almost a dramedy, rather than a straight drama. I’ve seen the first couple of episodes, and there’s a lot to laugh about in addition to the courtroom drama action. The show stars Simone Missick (Misty Knight on Marvel’s Luke Cage & Marvel’s The Defenders) as Lola Carmichael, former deputy district attorney turned newly appointed judge. Despite what her new judicial assistant Sherri (Ruthie Ann Miles, probably most famous for her roles on Broadway, but she was also in a few episodes of The Americans as well) advises her, Lola is determined to push the boundaries and challenge the expectations of what a judge can be. Unlike the older, stuffier judges who push cases through in rapid fire, Lola is determined to give each case her all, no matter how backed up her case files are. It’s that caring concern mixed with the humor she brings that makes her fun to watch.

Also starring are Wilson Bethel (Hart of Dixie) as Mark Callan, a deputy district attorney who has been best friends with Lola since college; Marg Helgenberger (CSI) as Supervisory Judge Lisa Benner, an influential, powerful woman tasked with overseeing Lola’s transition into her new job; Jessica Camacho (Taken, The Flash, Sleepy Hollow) as Emily Lopez, a young, empathetic public defender; J. Alex Brinson (Travelers) as Luke Watkins, a court bailiff by day, law student by night who takes a liking to Emily; and Lindsay Mendez (best known for her roles on Broadway) as Sara Castillo, a court reporter and reliable source of intel and advice.

I really loved this pilot. It’s funny, but it’s got heart too, and I can’t wait to see more.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” newly appointed Judge Lola Carmichael works to get justice for people amidst a flawed legal process.

Meet Lola, Mark, and the others tonight on CBS at 9/8c.
