The Good Place – s03 ep 01-02 “Everything is Bonzer!” – SEASON PREMIERE

I love this show.

I love it.

I love the writers, Mike Schur, the cast, the production team, the producers. I love everybody.

No, I’m not stoned.

These are my actual feelings about “The Good Place”. If you haven’t check it out, go listen to “The Good Place: The Podcast“, hosted by Marc Evan Jackson. It is wonderful, amazing and super interesting. You really get the sense of how a network television works.

In this premiere, we see how Michael (Ted Danson) managed to get on Earth and save the four humans from their death, shoving Eleonor (Kristen Bell) out of the way and unlocking the sae where Jason was hiding with his snorkel.

Michael is now forced to interfere again: several months later, they haven’t improved and he pulls some strings so at least Chidi (William Jacson Harper) and Eleonor can meet.

In the meantime, Chidi has met a neurology professor, Simone (Kirby Howell-Baptiste) who helped his almost (emphasis on almost) overcome his indecisiveness and Eleonor pushes them together, literally helping them asking each other out.

Back in “The Bad Place”, Shawn (Marc Evan Jackson) is trying to bypass the Judge’s authority (MAYA RUDOLF IS BACK AND I LOVE HER!)

Finally, Chidi seems to have found a topic for this thesis:

he will explore the effects of near-death experiences on ethical decision making.

This brings him to find people who have had near-death experiences.

Hint: It’s Tahani and Jason.

Tahani’s life after Michael saved her is hilarious. Camila, her sister, is praised for saving her. Tahani then gives away all her material objects and puts some distance between her and her old life. She decides to go live in a buddhist monastery and after a while, she rises to stardom again by writing a book called: “Get out of the spotlight”.

Jason, on the other hand, is trying to win dance competition after dance competitions and his life is absolutely ridiculous.

Finally the humans are all back together but Shawn finds a way to interfere and sends someone on earth…

TREVOR!!

Adam Scott is back!!!! I love him. So. Much.

Jokes I loved:

  • “I’m a trash bag from Arizona, which is saying something. Our biggest exports are racist sheriffs and HPV.”

    “I once got 12/12 on a Buzzfeed quiz called “Do you know all the slang words the Kardashian invented?”

Chidi is a living meme. I love him.

  • […] when I first read Aristotle I thought I was pronounced like “Chipotle”.

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/_UQD6rjQBvE/maxresdefault.jpg

  • “My name Zac Pizzazz!”, said by a douch bag leather jacet wearing Ted Danson. It was hilarous.
  • “I want you thinking about dance 24/7, that means every day you think 20 thoughts about dance for (4) 7 minutes.”

“Claustophobic? Who would ever be scared of Santa Claus?”


This show is the best. I loved the way this new season was connected to the previous ones. I’m interested to see how they are going to explore this new opportunity!

And I can’t wait to listen to the new episode of the podcast!

And can we talk about The Doorman’s obsession with frogs? And The Judge watching NCIS?

I cannot wait for next week!!!

Did you see the episode? Did you like it? Was there a joke that made out laugh like crazy?

The Resident – s02 ep 01 – “00:42:30” – SEASON 2 PREMIERE

Let’s kick off the start of my season premieres / pilot series of reviews!!!

I am so excited! This is gonna be fun!

I have written quite a lot about “The Resident”, despite it not leaving that of a great first impression on me. I also reviewed season 1 in its entirety but I wasn’t sure I would be back for season 2.

And guess what?

I am!

To recap what happened in the first season, Condrad (Matt Czuchry), Nic (EmilyVanCamp) and Devon (Manish Dayal) uncovered Dr. Hunter’s illegal overdose of chemotherapy on her patients, Dr. Bell’s rise to President of the hospital despite his drinking, drug usage and inability to perform surgery. On top of that, Nic was being framed by Dr. Hunter for the murder of one of her patients, Lily and Conrad’s powerful father disrupts the fragile equilibrium keeping his son’s life together.

so…. DRAMAAA!!!


And season 2 starts off with Conrad and Nic having steamy sex in the shower!

You go girl! Go get it!

Dr. Hunter is actually being accused of murder, fraud and so many other things! She might even face the death penalty! I did not know the state of Georgia still had it! (Which is barberic, by the way. I’m so against this.)

We see these two little newborn babies with heart problems, their mother in the ICU and their father barely hanging on and… of course the power goes off in the middle of surgery!

2018-09-25 (2).png

Dr Okafor and Dr Austin have one of the tiny tiny babies on their table, performing heart surgery.

HEART. SURGERY. IN. THE. DARK.

Resident evil old white man Dr Bell is trying to make decisions but of course, money is his first concern and it seems like he only wants to maintain his and the hospital’s reputation.

What a dick.

But turns out, it wasn’t the storm that caused the power to go off! The hospital has been attacked by hackers!

A kid, victim of a gun show wound comes into the ER and even though they are at full capacity, Conrad decides to open him up right there and then build a makeshift O.R. in the middle of the floor.

2018-09-25 (4).png

Cool and completely reckless. Conrad Hawkins’ style.

 

But this hacker isn’t a foreign attacker! The hit came from inside the hospital! Even more drama! I knew it was the girl, the college drop out, Nic’s patient. I knew it was her.

2018-09-25.png

Power was restored, all patients were saved and all was well! (Well… almost… Dr Bell is plotting something as ush.)


I think I would have liked this story a lot more, had I not seen a similar episode on Grey’s Anatomy last season.

Although the stakes are much higher here and I was stressed for all 40 minutes. It’s a good season premiere, I was entertained.

There is still this lingering feeling that there is always something shady and carefully hidden in the background and that makes me come back to the show.

What are your thoughts on the premiere? What do you think this season is going to be about? Will we know more about Conrad and Nic’s past relationship? Will Dr Bell be exposed?

Why Would Anyone Make This? – 2018 Fall TV Preview

Super weird shows with ridiculous tag lines. In this list you will find shows I think should not have been made and some shows that do not sound that interesting to me.

I loooooooove this time of year, when the 2018-2019 shows are announced, new pilots are coming out and new series are born.

What an exciting time.

Now, let’s get into it!

[Check out the complete article with all the information on TvLine.com.]



God Friended Me, CBS

Bear with me, this is the synopsis:

An outspoken atheist’s life is turned upside down when he is “friended” by God on social media. Unwittingly, he becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him.

WHAT?!

No, like… WHAT!?

God Friended Me

I’m watching this and a review will most definitely come out.

PREMIERE DATE: Sept. 30th


Happy Together (CBS)

A couple, tired of their mundane life, starts hanging out with a young pop star who moves in.

It’s so trashy and I won’t watch it.

I can already hear the “old people jokes” and various easily predictable laugher. (There are backing laughing tracks. This is not 2005.)

PREMIERE DATE: Oct. 1st

 


LEGACIES, The CW

I don’t really get it but is this the spin-off of the spin off of the Vampire Diaries?

Do we really need any more that this? Does the world need more magical creatures, vampires in a glossy and polished setting trying to be dark and edgy?

NO.

legacies

PREMIERE DATE: Oct. 25th



THE NEIGHBORHOOD (CBS)

The nicest guy in the Midwest moves his family into a tough neighborhood in L.A. where not everyone appreciates his extreme neighborliness.

What is this synopsis? No really. I want to know.

Should I read this and think: “Oh, this sounds interesting! I should check it out!”?

Did you read it? Like, did you?

Finally some diversity on CBS! I don’t like how fake it all looks, especially the houses. I don’t think I’ll watch it.

PREMIERE DATE: Oct. 1st


THE ROOKIE (ABC)

No no no. Why? This is basically Castle, but Nathan Fillion is a cop now. No. I’m tired of seeing him on TV.

NO

Especially after all the rumours on the “Castle” set and the ugly way the show ended.

There are so many stories you can told and this topic has been thoughtfully exhausted.

PREMIERE DATE: Oct. 16th


ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO (The CW)

Seriously, The CW? Come on.

the daughter of undocumented immigrants discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush who is now a police officer: he’s an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life. She protects his secret as the two reconnect and begin to investigate his origins, but when a violent attack and long-standing government cover-up point to a greater alien presence on Earth, the politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him and destroy their deepening romance.

Ehm… What? Like…. what? Is this for real?!

An alien? Government cover-up? WHAT?!

PREMIERE DATE: Midseason



CHARMED (The CW)

Charmed

Why! No Seriously. Why reboot this show? I watched the trailer and no. I like that they’ve cast a diverse cast and it seems more modern and progressive, as it were.

Still, no.

I am perfectly aware that I’m saying I won’t see it but… who has two thumbs and will definitely watch at least the pilot?

THIS GIRL!

PREMIERE DATE: October 14th.



Do you plan on watching any of these shows? What is your first impression of them?
