Fellow white people, we really need to talk about One Day at a Time. Honestly, we need to talk about a lot of things; but I think I’m going to start here because Netflix just fucked up. Big time. And, given what I know about some of our/y’all’s viewing habits with other great television series that weren’t about or “for” us — wtfever that even means — so did we.
Whenever a new series is announced, it’s always difficult to decide whether or not to fit it into our increasingly busy schedules. One of ABC’s latest dramas, The Rookie, was on some of our watch lists. According to the network
Starting over isn’t easy, especially for small-town guy John Nolan (Nathan Fillion) who, after a life-altering incident, is pursuing his dream of being a Los Angeles police officer. As the force’s oldest rookie, he’s met with skepticism from some higher-ups who see him as just a walking midlife crisis. If he can’t keep up with the young cops and the criminals, he’ll be risking lives including his own. But if he can use his life experience, determination and sense of humor to give him an edge, he may just become a success in this new chapter of his life.

Whenever a new series is announced, it’s always difficult to decide whether or not to fit it into our increasingly busy schedules. One of NBC’s latest dramas, New Amsterdam, wound up on some of our potential watch lists, so we decided to give it a shot. So, what’s this show all about? According to the network,

One of our writers mentioned Take Two in our summer tv roundtable; but at the time, we didn’t have much to go by other than “created by Terri Edda Miller and Andrew” Marlowe — affectionately called “MilMar” by fans of their previous series, Castle. Now that ABC has released screeners of the first two episodes, we have a little bit more to go by than, “well, MilMar did it, so obviously.” Without giving too much away — we want you to watch and enjoy for yourselves, after all — we present to you the reasons why Take Two is definitely going to be a must-watch series on our summer schedules.
Kids these days don’t know how good they have it: Rather than spending all summer watching reruns and wishing for new content, they now get to leap from one series’ hiatus to another’s premiere. With so many ways to watch television, there’s never such thing as downtime; and while it sometimes gets overwhelming, it’s much more preferable than the old way of doing things. So, with most of our favorite “regular season” shows either on hiatus or soon to be there, if you’re actually wondering what to watch next, check out our humble suggestions.
Every year, early May is a stressful time for TV fans. If your favorite show ended up on the bubble, this is the time when the anxiety sets in. You’re waiting on pins and needles to hear if your show has been renewed and will live on to see another season.
This year, there are a lot of series on the bubble. Some deserve to be there after a shitty season, but some of them still have us scratching our heads in confusion as to how they ended up there at all — yes, we’re talking about Timeless.
So, we gathered a few writers and TV fans to discuss which shows deserve to die a painful death and which ones absolutely need another season, lest we be the ones who might die of a broken heart.
Meghan Markle and Patrick J. Adams are leaving Suits at the end of season 7. With just one last chance to visit their characters, Rachel Zane and Mike Ross, we decided to take some time to look back at their past contributions to the Pearson Hardman/Pearson Darby/Pearson Darby Specter/Pearson Specter/Pearson Specter Litt/Specter Litt universe and share our hopes for their futures. As will probably be obvious to any Suits viewer, these two talented actors and beloved characters will be sorely missed.
