    Episode Also Tackles Bisexuality, Gender Stereotypes in Sports, and More
    Two- Hour ‘What Would You Do?’ Event Airs Tuesday, Sept. 8 (9:00-11:00 EDT), on ABC
    ABC presents a two-hour television event beginning with the powerful season finale of ABC’s hit show “What Would You Do?,” followed by a compelling new hour that confronts the moral dilemma of lying. Inspired by the classic “WWYD?” scenario involving a woman asking a stranger to pretend to be her boyfriend to please her nosy mother, the new hour asks the provocative question, when is it okay to lie? Kicking off the night, “What Would You Do?” with anchor John Quiñones features emotional scenarios on bisexuality, gender stereotypes in sports, and more. Then, ABC News’ Gio Benitez hosts “Would You Lie For Me?” which captures with hidden cameras jaw-dropping moments as real people are asked to lie for complete strangers. Will bystanders lie to help protect a boy from being bullied? Will people pretend to be a marriage coach for a husband whose relationship is on the rocks? The two-hour “What Would You Do?” event airs Tuesday, Sept. 8 (9:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.
    “What Would You Do?” scenarios airing at 9:00 p.m. EDT include the following:
    · A young man comes out to his friends as bisexual. His friends question his sexual orientation saying, “You can just say you’re gay. You don’t have to hide behind bisexuality.” What will bystanders do? How will people react when we twist the scenario and the friend questioning his bisexuality is gay?
    · At the batting cages, a girl is trying to better her baseball game. Her father disapproves, telling her, “Girls don’t play baseball.” The girl is determined to prove to her dad that she can compete with the boys. Will others come to her defense?
    · A newly engaged woman is out to lunch with her friend, showing off her ring. The friend is appalled at how small the diamond is. Will fellow diners step in to stop the bullying?
    · Two grandmothers are out to lunch with their granddaughters. As the grandmothers start posing for photos and posting them to social media, the granddaughters become embarrassed and beg them to act their age. The grandmothers refuse. Whose side will fellow diners take?
    “Would You Lie For Me?” scenarios airing at 10:00 p.m. EDT include the following:
    · A young boy at an ice cream shop needs help fending off bullies. After bystanders agree to help him, the boy tells his bullies, “This is my karate instructor.” Will they go along with the fib? Will they still support the boy later when he takes a bolt cutter to a locked bike?
    . A focus group is reviewing a product that does not work. When they overhear the other participants lying about the product’s effectiveness, will they lie too? The salesman then asks if they will pretend to be a marriage coach for an uncomfortable meeting with his wife. Will anyone agree? If they do, will they give marriage advice?
    · A woman in a restaurant is waiting for her meddling mother who is in town for the weekend. To keep her mom off her back, the woman asks total strangers to pretend to be her boyfriend. Will they say yes? If they agree, how far will they take the lie when the mother asks them about their job as a cardiologist? This scenario originally aired on “What Would You Do?” and inspired the primetime special.

Twelve “Holey Moley” finalists return to the course to face off on four of the toughest holes, but at the end of the night, only one will emerge victorious and be crowned the grand champion of “Holey Moley.” On The Distractor, the distraction is none other than Michael Winslow of “Police Academy” fame, AKA “The Man of 10,000 Sound Effects,” where he uses self-made sound effects to prevent the contestants from making their 12-foot putts. Plus, the outrageous, never-before-seen hole, Clowning Around, makes its debut as competitors attempt to make a shot from upside-down, or else be faced with a pie in the face.

Primetime DVD Review: “Supergirl: The Complete Fifth Season”

DVD Review!

Supergirl: The Complete Fifth Season Blu-ray cover
“Supergirl: The Complete Fifth Season (Blu-ray)” Review by Suzanne 9/3/20

I grew up reading “Supergirl” comics, as well as all the male DC comics like Superman, Batman, Justice League, The Flash, et al. I enjoyed the 1980’s movie they did about Supergirl as well. When the series first started, I wasn’t sure if I would like it because I didn’t like all of the changes they made, particularly with regard to her origin story. However, the show quickly won me over with great stories and good acting.  It’s hard to believe that they’re about to enter their 6th season. They ended with 19 episodes this season, due to the pandemic.  Let’s hope they can film the next one and debut in the spring.

The only thing I don’t like about the show is that the characters change so often. I really miss Wynn (at least he did return this year for a few episodes), Jimmy and Mon-El.  The stories are still very good, though. Lena and Kara’s friendship breaking up this year was horrible, but they got back to a good place.  I’m still not sure yet if I like this new post-Crisis universe with Lex pretending to be a good guy. It takes some getting used to.  They do like to keep us – and their characters – on our toes.

This DVD (Blu-ray) doesn’t have a lot of features. DVD’s, too, were affected by the pandemic. They just have the usual deleted scenes and gag reel, plus “The Best of DC TV’s Comic-Con Panels San Diego 2019.”  I’m surprised they couldn’t cobble together some kind of season-specific feature.

This would make a great gift for any superhero fan or any fan of fantasy/scifi/drama. I can’t wait until the show returns!

Primetime DVD Review: “Magnum P.I.: Season Two”

DVD Review!

Magnum P.I.: Season Two DVD cover

“Magnum P.I.: Season Two” Review by Suzanne 8/30/20

You can’t compare this to the original series, so you shouldn’t try. Tom Selleck is just too hard to replace.  However, it’s a good, solid drama in its own right. The stories are compelling.  There aren’t many private eye shows around on TV, so it’s good to have one.  Also, now that “Hawaii Five-0” has been canceled, this is the only show set in Hawaii as well. Having lived there for 3 years, I enjoy watching this show to see glimpses of places I recognize.  It’s also great to see Tim Kang (Detective Gordon Katsumoto) again…I loved him on “The Mentalist.”

The DVD is fun to watch.  It has many good features, including “Better Together: The Story of Magnum, P.I. Season Two”, deleted scenes, the Hawaii Five-0 Crossover episode, gag reel and a fun video diary from actor Stephen Hill (T.C.).  This DVD would make a great gift for any drama fan.

MORE INFORMATION:

Coming to your home screen this September is a  hit TV show from CBS Home Entertainment.

Action-packed crime drama Magnum P.I.: Season Two will be arriving on DVD this year on  September 1. Starring Jay Hernandez as Tom Magnum, an American hero and Navy SEAL returning from war who uses his military skills to become a private investigator in Oahu, Hawaii.

Magnum P.I.: Season Two
Street Date: September 1, 2020
Format: DVD
Description: MAGNUM P.I. is a modern take on the classic series centering on Thomas Magnum, a former Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. A charming rogue, an American hero and a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, Magnum lives in a guest cottage on Robin’s Nest, the luxurious estate where he works as a security consultant to supplement his P.I. business. The “majordomo” of the property is Juliet Higgins, a beautiful and commanding disavowed MI:6 agent whose second job is to keep Magnum in line, with the help of her two Dobermans. When Magnum needs back-up on a job, he turns to his trusted buddies and fellow POW survivors, Theodore “TC” Calvin, a former Marine chopper pilot who runs Island Hoppers, a helicopter tour business, and Orville “Rick” Wright, a former Marine door-gunner-turned-impresario of Oahu’s coolest nightclub and the most connected man on the island. Suspicious of Magnum’s casual attitude and presence at his crime scenes, Detective Gordon Katsumoto finds that he and Magnum are more alike than either of them care to admit. One of Magnum’s biggest supporters is Teuila “Kumu” Tuileta, the unofficial “House Mom” and cultural curator of Robin’s Nest.With keys to a vintage Ferrari in one hand, aviator sunglasses in the other, and an Old Düsseldorf longneck chilling in the fridge, Thomas Magnum is back on the case!

Primetime DVD Review: “Blue Bloods: The Tenth Season”

DVD Review!

Blue Bloods: The Tenth Season DVD cover

“Blue Bloods: The Tenth Season” Review by Suzanne 8/15/20

This is such a reliable and solid show. It’s basically a police soap opera.  The focus is on the family: the Reagans, who stand by each other, even when they’re fighting. Even though this is their 10th season, they’re still going strong.  The stories are always intriguing.  The audience for this show skews older and more conservative, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a good show that anyone can enjoy.

The best feature is one that celebrates the 200th episode.  There are also deleted scenes “Dinner with the Reagans,” which they have on every DVD. This year, they had to do the dinner remotely. It was very interesting to watch. I think any fan of police shows would enjoy this. Even though it’s a soap opera, you shouldn’t feel too lost if you start watching with this DVD.

MORE INFORMATION:

Blue Bloods: The Tenth Season

Street Date: August 18, 2020

Format: DVD

Description: Blue Bloods is a drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement. Frank Reagan is the New York Police Commissioner, and heads both the police force and the Reagan brood. He runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family, even when dealing with the politics that plagued his unapologetically bold father, Henry, during his stint as Chief. A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son, Danny, a seasoned detective, family man and Iraq War vet who on occasion uses dubious tactics to solve cases with his partner, Detective Maria Baez. The Reagan women in the family include Erin, a New York Assistant D.A. who also serves as the legal compass for her siblings and father, as well as a single parent to her teenage daughter, Nicky. Jamie is the youngest Reagan, a Harvard Law graduate and the family’s “golden boy.” Unable to deny the family tradition, Jamie decided to give up a lucrative future in law and follow in the family footsteps as a cop. He’s found a friend and ally in Eddie, his female partner who keeps him on his toes, and has very different reasons than the Reagans for joining the police force. After several years of working together, Jamie and Eddie finally succumbed to their strong feelings for one another and tied the knot.

Primetime DVD Review: “The Flash: The Complete Sixth Season”

The Flash: The Complete Sixth Season DVD cover

“The Flash: The Complete Sixth Season” Review by Suzanne 8/30/20

This is my favorite superhero show, and that’s saying a lot because there are many of them (and I watch them all). Every season has been fantastic. The characters and relationships are very well-defined.  They sometimes kill off characters and sometimes bring them back (just like most shows nowadays). This year we got a little less of Cisco and a little more of the other characters.

The season was cut a little short, by 3 episodes, thanks to the coronavirus. That makes sense because it didn’t really feel like a typical “Flash” ending at the end of the year. It will be great to see what happens in Season 7 (especially to Iris and Ralph). The show never disappoints with good acting, drama, action and occasional humor.

This is a pretty good DVD collection. There is a special noir version of one of the episodes, and commentary. There is the usual gag reel and deleted scenes, and last year’s San Diego Comic Con panel. It’s worth having if you’re a fan of the show.

Primetime DVD Review: “SEAL Team: Season Three”

DVD Review!

SEAL Team: Season Three DVD cover

“SEAL Team: Season Three” Review by Suzanne 8/30/20

I don’t watch this show regularly, but it’s a solid show with good performances and stories. I love David Boreanaz, who stars as Bravo, the team leader. He’s always great. I watched him in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel,” and “Bones,” but “SEAL Team” is just not my type of show. It’s a good action show with lots of drama and angst. It doesn’t have the humor and romance of “Bones,” and it’s not a fantasy or scifi show. I prefer Scifi and Fantasy shows.  There are so many shows to watch, and I can’t watch them all.

If you like good drama and action, you should enjoy this show. The show also stars “Mad Men”‘s Jessica Paré and “CSI: NY”‘s A.J. Buckley, among others.  The show reminds me a bit of “NCIS: Los Angeles” because of its military bent and what the SEAL team members go through.  This season, Bravo is divorced and trying to cope with the lives that have been lost in his team. From what I’ve read, the show is very popular with vets because it’s realistic and shows what military personnel go through.

I’m glad to get the DVD, so I can watch the show at my leisure.  Like most shows right now, it was cut short by a few episodes because of the coronavirus. There are quite a few special features on the DVD set. However, the menu is somewhat confusing, so it can be hard to find the special features if you’re not looking on every single disk, and every episode. I hate when they do that. They should put all of the features on one disk at the end, to make it easier.

MORE INFORMATION:

The action packed TV series SEAL Team: Season Three is coming to your home screen on DVD August 25 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment. Follow the story of Bravo Team, a United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group, on the challenges they face professionally and personally through their dangerous missions. 

SEAL Team: Season Three

Street Date: August 25, 2020

Format: DVD

Description: SEAL Team is a military drama that follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan, and execute the most dangerous, high-stakes missions our country can ask of them. Jason Hayes is the respected, intense leader of the Tier One team whose home life has suffered as a result of his extensive warrior’s existence. His team includes his trusted confidant, Ray Perry, the longest-tenured operator with whom Jason shares an ingrained shorthand; Sonny Quinn, an exceptional, loyal soldier with a checkered past who still combats self-destructive tendencies; and Clay Spenser, a young, multilingual, second-generation SEAL with insatiable drive and dedication. Vital to the team‘s success are troop commander Lt. Cdr. Eric Blackburn, who serves as a leader and confidant both on and off the battlefield; CIA analyst Mandy Ellis, who has sacrificed everything in her drive to root out evil and take down terrorists; and Ensign Lisa Davis, a no-nonsense, take-charge officer. Deployed on clandestine missions worldwide at a moment’s notice, and knowing the toll it takes on them and their families, this tight-knit SEAL team displays unwavering patriotism and fearless dedication even in the face of overwhelming odds.

Primetime DVD Review: “Gunsmoke Movie Collection”

DVD Review!

Gunsmoke Movie Collection DVD cover

“Gunsmoke Movie Collection” Review by Suzanne 8/30/20

If you enjoy the classic “Gunsmoke” TV series, then you’ll probably enjoy these movies as well.  Even though the cast is older, they still do a great job on these later movies. The stories are solid. It’s not my favorite show, but I’ve seen many of the episodes because my dad used to watch it.  It’s fun seeing Matt Dillon with long hair and acting like John Wayne in these films. Sadly, the actress who played Kitty (Amanda Blake), died after the first movie.  Michael Learned stepped in to play an old romance of Matt’s.

There are 5 total Gunsmoke movies, but this collection only has the first three. It doesn’t appear as if the last two movies have come out yet. I wish I knew why. At any rate, if you’re a fan of the show, you’ll enjoy these movies. They have twice the action of the Gunsmoke TV series.

I wish they had more features on the DVD set. It has none. This set was clearly done cheaply.

MORE INFORMATION:

The classic ‘Gunsmoke: The Complete Movie Collection’ featuring James Arness in his  Emmy®️ -nominated role as Marshall Matt is coming to DVD, featuring all three movie sequels: Return to Dodge, The Last Apache, and To The Last Man on August 25 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment.

Gunsmoke: The Complete Movie Collection

Street Date: August 25, 2020

Format: DVD

The Gunsmoke Complete Movie Collection will feature all three movie sequels, starting off with the Return to Dodge, where Will Mannon (Steve Forrest) is released from prison and looking for revenge on Marshal Matt Dillion and Miss Kitty (Amanda Blake) for putting him there. Following the second film, The Last Apache, Matt Dillon responds to a letter from “Mike” Yardner (Michael Learned), an old friend where they discover a ranch has been raided by Apaches and Mike’s daughter, Beth, is kidnapped by ‘Wolf’, a rogue Apache. The film follows Dillion as he begins his search and rescue for Beth. Lastly, To The Last Man, retired Marshal Matt Dillion finds trouble in regards to rustlers stealing his cattle. Dillion tracks down rustlers in Pleasant Valley, Arizona, where a land-grab war arises.

Primetime DVD Review: “G-LOC”

DVD Review!

G-LOC DVD cover

“G-LOC” Review by Suzanne 8/30/20

I really wanted to like this movie because it stars Stephen Moyer, who was so great in “True Blood” and “The GIfted.”  Also, I like scifi. However, the movie is a mess. If you like action, maybe you’ll like it, but it has a lot of slow, boring parts as well.  The name of the movie is based on what happens when you lose consciousness in space, due too much G-force.

The basic “universe” the movie is set in was interesting.  Earth is facing a new ice age in the future. A mysterious worm hole dubbed “The Gate” appears over the Earth, so humanity builds space ships to fly through it, to get to another world, Rhea.  Time is different on the other side, however. By the time the remaining humans decide to go through, the earliest human settlers of Rhea have decided not to take any more refugees. That part is interesting (and, of course, timely).  The hero, Bran (Moyer), is stranded in space on a dying ship, with just his A.I., Edison (who sounds a bit too much lik C-3PO).  They board another ship, but most of the crew is dead.

At this point, I was thinking, “How many times have we seen THIS scenario before?”  Answer: a lot, especially on “Doctor Who,” but also in many movies.  Then Bran (dumb name) meets a Rhean woman named Osha. Now, “Bran” is bad enough, but Osha? As in, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration?? No. Terrible names. Bran and Osha spend a lot of time trying to kill each other.  Throughout the movie, we can’t figure out if they’re going to have a romance or not.  The problem is, Moyer looks a lot older than her.  She seems closer to the age of his daughter.  In the end, though, they never become more than friends.  That question remains unanswered, and it’s not the only one.

One of the interesting parts of the movie is when Bran is thinking back to his family on Earth.  Unfortunately, that’s a pretty sad story.  John Rhys-Davies has a small part as his father-in-law.  The movie has a good ending, except we never get to see Rhea.  Most of the movie happens on a claustrophobic spaceship set.

I think this could have been a good movie in the hands of an experienced filmmaker.  Unfortunately, it moves too slowly and has a little too much going on at once.  It seems to be trying to be a dark, grim movie, but it has a facile ending that doesn’t match the tone of the rest of it.

    Nearly three decades ago, then 17-year-old Amy Fisher—dubbed “Long Island Lolita” by media —shot Mary Jo Buttafuoco on her front porch following an affair with her husband, Joey Buttafuoco. “20/20” takes a look at the story through the eyes of Mary Jo, Joey, and their daughter, Jessie, just nine-years-old at the time of the shooting in May 1992. Jessie reflects on her journey, including how she learned to understand the tabloid glare that dominated her childhood and how she survived the scrutiny. She also reveals intimate details about life after the incident, including her mom’s excruciating recovery; the family’s move to California to try and escape the media frenzy; her battle with drugs, alcohol and depression; how she turned her life around; and her current, perhaps surprising, relationship with her parents.

The two-hour program also features Buttafuoco family home videos and the first on-camera interview with confessed accomplice Steven Sleeman, who says Amy hired him to kill Mary Jo.

    Airing 9/5/20 (Saturday) (10:00 PM) “48 HOURS” GOES INSIDE THE TWISTED CASE OF A MAN WHOSE MURDER WAS ORDERED IN “DEAD RINGER”
    Ramon Sosa Tells Peter Van Sant: “I’m the Only Person Alive that Has Ever Walked Out of His Own Grave” Preview
    Peter Van Sant and 48 HOURS go inside the twisted tale of a man whose murder was ordered – and who lived to talk about it – in “Dead Ringer” to be broadcast Saturday, September 5, (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Re-run from Oct. 13, 2018.
    Ramon Sosa, a former professional boxer, was a family man and the popular owner of Woodlands Boxing and Fitness in Montgomery County, Texas, when his world began to unravel. He seemed to have it all: a beautiful wife, Lulu; a healthy family; and a booming business. And then, suddenly, someone wanted him dead.
    “I would have never thought that anyone would want to kill me,” Sosa tells Van Sant.
    Van Sant and 48 HOURS take viewers inside the twists and turns of a complex sting operation to catch the person who wanted Sosa dead. The sting is unique because, to make it work, Sosa had to become an undercover operative.
    At the time, Sosa was seemingly living a good life. Still, nothing would prepare him for the way his life changed next. Sosa learned through a friend who goes by the alias Mundo that someone was trying to hire a hit man to kill him. Sosa thought his friend, a former gang member, was joking.
    “He said, ‘No, man, I’ve seen that look in people’s eyes before they want to kill somebody,’” Sosa recalls Mundo saying.
    What Sosa and Mundo did next is unbelievable, stunning, and all true. Together, they set up the groundwork for a sting to uncover the plot.
    “It’s like a screenplay, something straight out of Hollywood,” says Lt. Mike Atkins, of the Montgomery County Constable’s Office. “It would fit in with every other horror flick that we’ve seen in the past.”
    That was just one part of this crazy tale. Sosa and Mundo took their information to Atkins, who then urged Mundo to keep pushing his source. Reluctantly, he did. And to make it look like Sosa’s hit actually happened, Atkins and his team staged Sosa’s death – complete with makeup to make it look like he took a bullet to the head. They photographed Sosa in a grave.
    “I saw myself in the grave, dead,” Sosa says. “Literally, I was supposed to be dead. I’m the only person alive that has ever walked out of his own grave.”
    But would the images be enough to catch the person who wanted Sosa dead?
    Van Sant and 48 HOURS report the story through interviews with Sosa, his daughter, Atkins, Mundo and more. 48 HOURS: “Dead Ringer” is produced by Susan Mallie, Jennifer Terker and Claire St. Amant. Jason Schmidt, Marcus Balsam and Mike Baluzy are the editors. Anthony Batson is the senior broadcast producer. Nancy Kramer is the executive story editor. Susan Zirinsky is the senior executive producer.

    ‘WHAT WOULD YOU DO?’ FEATURES SCENARIO INSPIRED BY THE DEBATE OVER THE US-MEXICO BORDER WALL
    New Episode Also Features Professional WWE Wrestler Nia Jax on Bullying
    ‘What Would You Do?’ Airs Tuesday, Aug. 25 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC
    “What Would You Do?” films along the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso, Texas.
    With the Trump administration promising to build a 450-mile border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border by the end of 2020, a new episode of ABC News’ “What Would You Do?” features a scenario inspired by the wall debate. Filmed in New Jersey and El Paso, Texas, hidden cameras capture both sides of this hot topic. Professional WWE wrestler Nia Jax also joins the episode behind the scenes to discuss bullying, which she’s personally experienced. “What Would You Do?” airs Tuesday, Aug. 25 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.
    Tuesday, Aug. 25, scenarios include the following:
    · A couple of Latino men are in a restaurant speaking Spanish as they wait to order their food. A customer nearby overhears them and questions their immigration status. He tells the men that until there is a border wall, there is no way of knowing who is in the United States legally. How will others who witness the conversation react in New Jersey? What will the reaction be in El Paso, Texas, just a few miles from the U.S.-Mexico border?
    · A group of teen girls is verbally bullying a classmate at a park. What will witnesses do? Will they defend the young woman or ignore the situation? Jax joins Quiñones behind the scenes and opens up about her own story of overcoming bullying and finding self-confidence.
    · A woman and her son are waiting at a diner for her ex-husband to pick up the child. While waiting, the woman repeatedly says negative things about her ex. As the child becomes visibly upset will others do something? What will fellow diners say if the scene switches and a father criticizes his ex-wife?
    · A customer in a barbershop falls asleep in the chair, making it impossible for the barber to do his job and delaying other customers’ appointments. How will people react? What will bystanders do if a customer falls asleep in a nail salon while getting a pedicure? How will diners respond if a child falls asleep in his food while his mother takes a call?

    Airing 8/29/20 (Saturday) (10:00 PM) “48 HOURS” INVESTIGATES THE DEATH OF A HOLLYWOOD THERAPIST AND POPULAR AUTHOR IN AN ENCORE OF “THE LIFE AND DEATH OF AMIE HARWICK” Preview
    In life, family therapist and author Amie Harwick devoted herself to helping others work through their personal struggles. Her shocking death put a spotlight on domestic violence. Her former fiancé, Drew Carey, is among those calling for updated laws that will ensure the safety of victims, something Harwick was passionate about in her practice. Erin Moriarty and 48 HOURS go inside the investigation of what happened leading up to Harwick’s death, and talk with those who were closest to her in the final weeks of her life, in an encore of “The Life and Death of Amie Harwick” to be broadcast Saturday, August 29 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
    In the early morning hours on Feb. 15, Los Angeles police officers responding to a call of a “woman screaming” found 38-year-old Harwick lying on the ground, battered and unresponsive beneath the third-floor balcony of her Hollywood home. According to police, inside her apartment there was evidence of a struggle and forced entry. Harwick was transported to a hospital, where she later died from blunt-force injuries to the head and torso, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner. The medical examiner also indicated that Harwick had been strangled before falling over the balcony. A trail of evidence soon led homicide investigators to Harwick’s ex-boyfriend, 41-year-old Gareth Pursehouse. Four days after Harwick’s death, Pursehouse was arrested and charged with murder. He has pleaded not guilty.
    The hour features Moriarty’s revealing, emotional interviews with friends who opened up about her fears of abuse and how her work deeply helped others. The broadcast also included people who knew Pursehouse and have first-hand knowledge of how he felt about Harwick.

Interview with Crystal Hunt

TV Interview!

Crystal Hunt

Interview with Crystal Hunt of “Mood Swings” on PureFlix by Suzanne 8/14/20

It was great to speak with Crystal!  She’s a lot of fun. I used to watch her on “Guiding Light” and “One Life to Live”  She’s good at playing the villain, but she’s very sweet and down-to-earth in real life.

Here is the audio version of it.  Here’s the transcript!

Suzanne: So, when did you create the series? And when was it filmed?

Crystal: We shot it the year right before Christmas, year before last, and I created it when Donna Mills and Vanessa Marcil and I did that show “Queens Of Drama.” We were given a challenge. So, I create a treatment for a series that we think should be on the air. And so, my name is chosen, but Donna loved the concept of doing a female ensemble comedy and always loved “The Golden Girls,” and, you know, her favorite’s “I Love Lucy” like me. She loves Lucy a lot. So, we have a very similar sense of the style of comedy we like. And I just didn’t let her down. I was like, “Oh my God, I can’t believe we’re actually doing this.” She’s like, “You realize how big of a deal this is.” And she’s like, “There’s nobody in our industry that says they’re actually gonna do something and they actually follow through.” I’m like, “Well, I’m from Florida. I think it’s different.”

Suzanne: So had you done any writing before this?

Crystal: I had never, but I didn’t really have much of a choice once I saw what the budget was, and also timeframe before production needed to start by. And I didn’t realize just how many – because I’m not a writer, I didn’t realize just how – okay, I take it back. I did take poetry writing and things like that. I’ve always enjoyed that growing up. I’d just never formally written. So, I never really knew about writers rooms and all these different components and all these other people that add to the mix that actually makes up each episode. So, I realized really quickly, that yeah, this is too much work for anyone person in the time frame we need it. So, I happen to be friends with one of the writers of “The Golden Girls,” and I said, “Listen, I know that you [don’t want?] to do this for a long time, but it’s happening, but here’s the deal. It has to be done in this amount of time.” He’s like, “Okay, so possible.” I’m like, “Yeah, and here’s what it is. You’ll have me and one of my friends and we will -“ She has written some things. I was like, “So, she has a little bit of experience.” I said, “And I’m watching Judd Apatow Masterclass first.” I said, “So, while I finish up wrapping up the shooting the season on this other show.” I was like, “I will be watching a masterclass, so I know I can at least have an idea that I can make notes” I’m like, “And then lets beat board the whole thing out, and then let us create some female heavy content, and then you can run with it.” He’s like, “Okay, this sounds nuts but I think that it might actually be doable if you guys can do that.” He’s like, “That’s the key, like that’s where the writer room comes in, is you get to get ideas from a bunch of different heads, and a lot of different visions and takes on everything and that’s kind of what makes comedy so great.” So, it was a lesson and also opened up the doors to a lot of work right at the tail end of wrapping up season two of our show.

Suzanne: Wow. So, so, so it was difficult, but you figured out how to get help and get it all together.

Crystal: 100%. Tons of notes, tons of calls for questions and whatnot, but we got down to a really good rhythm. Some episodes, that will seem the most daunting to do, because they seem like they had the most content, turned out to be some of the easiest, and the ones that we thought were going to be the easiest, we’re like, “What? I don’t know, what do you mean?

Suzanne: So I know you’d worked for Pure Flix before, did that make it easier to sell it to them?

Crystal: Oh, it had already been sold. They had actually asked when I was actually negotiating my deal for season two. [Unintelligible] asked, “What happened to that show you pitched on, ‘Queens of Drama’?” “I mean, I do plan to do it at some point, but I just haven’t gotten around it yet.” He’s like, “Can you give me a rough pitch?” And I’m like, “Well, I haven’t even looked at the treatment in years, but yes.

Crystal: Like twenty minutes later, he’s like, “Let’s do like eight or ten episodes. Let’s just figure out like, what the beat board is and let’s do it. Like the episode, like what’s the season’s going to comprise of, and let’s do it.” So, just a treatment

Suzanne: Great. And so, did you first meet and work with Donna Mills with the “Queens of Drama,” or her did you know her from before?

Crystal: No, we actually have friends in common. One of the first executive researchers to ever hire her was a gentleman named John Conboy. He [unintelligible] “Santa Barbara” and “Capitol.” And he actually gave her one of my first jobs. He hired me for my first job on “The Guiding Light.”

Suzanne: Oh, good.

Crystal: Yeah, so, we had a lot of paths that crossed, but yes, we didn’t formally meet until “Queens of Drama.” And we’ve been like, yeah, there might be an age difference, but she and I, like you couldn’t find too closer pals. I love her pieces. She’s like family, as is her husband and daughter. They just didn’t realize they were gonna gain family from Florida, but they did…Joan Collins is a good friend of hers and Joan worked on “Guiding Light” with me. There’re just a lot of crossovers in our industry that you really don’t think of until that happens and you’re like, “Oh, oh, that’s where we know each other.” There’re so many times the things like that happen and it’s like, “Okay, now I’m not surprised anymore. Just go with it.”

Suzanne: Yeah, I read about that all the time. You’ll hear about somebody being cast and they’ll be like, “Oh, I know so and so, because we used to meet each other in the same auditions, or we took an acting class or something like that. And you’re like, “Oh, okay.”

Crystal: That happens a lot. Where like you used to, you know, do some sort of like workshop whatever with an actor and you run into them again, and then there’s like some sort of crossover.

Suzanne: Yeah. And I guess you see that a lot on Twitter too. Some actor that you know from one thing and then you’ll be talking to another actor, and you’re like, I wonder how they know each other? It’s always something like that.

Crystal: So true. And it does; it happens a lot. That’s because there’s not that many, especially in New York, there weren’t that many really reputable coaches that did workshops and whatnot. So, you had to have at least some credits on your belt to even get in there. So, if you were part of it, chances are you’re gonna see people that you’ve seen either on auditions or have worked with. [dog is barking]

Suzanne: Is that your dog?

Crystal: No, it is not. It’s my mother’s unruly dog. He is right next to me, barking next to me. I’m like, “What is she barking at?” We’re here in Florida for my mom’s birthday. So yeah, her dogs, though I love them to pieces. I got them for her, so obviously, I think they’re beautiful and I love them, but holy moly. They bark at everything

Suzanne: Yeah, that’s we always try to get dog that doesn’t bark if we can help it.

Crystal: Mine does not. I am very proud to say that.

Crystal: I’m answering a text; I have to get to an appointment that my mom’s at. Sorry I was asking on my dad’s [unintelligible] because they were walking in. My mom’s like – I told her, I’m like, “I have an interview to do on my drive over there.” Like I didn’t realize the time it was, because I was like, “I know I’ll be getting a call at that time. So I’ll head over there.

Crystal: I told him too, I was like…I surprised my mom got like this whole like, UV filtration system in their house and stuff like that, because she’s a cancer survivor…and really good it gets all the crap out of the water and stuff but also doesn’t have that water. So, I don’t know if you have long hair, but it doesn’t have that water softener feel that makes you feel like you can’t ever get your shampoo out of your hair. Because we hate it but also don’t want to have her breathing in carcinogens like they clean water with. So, I do that and the guy didn’t know what he was doing exactly, and it flooded a quarter of my parents’ house.

Suzanne: Oh, no.

Crystal: Yeah, this all happened in the last 48 hours, so it’s been fun.

Suzanne: You’ve been having a week.

Crystal: Yeah, exactly. I was like, “Friday might be a little hectic, but don’t worry. Even if I’m talking on the road, I’ll be talking.

Suzanne: Well, that’s good that you can multitask.

Crystal: [unintelligible] disaster.

Suzanne: Did you know any of the other people in your cast? You have a great cast for the show. Did you know any of them before they were cast?

Crystal: Oh, 100%, yeah. Well, obviously, Donna wrote the role for, and then Dyan Cannon she called me, and I was just like, that was beyond a pinch yourself moment. I mean, her her manager called a couple times, and I was explaining that the character that would be great for her would be be – She wanted to roll of Wanda, but I said I’ve written that for Donna, but the roll of her sister would be fabulous for her. She’s wild and crazy and a blast. But she wasn’t set to come until season two. Well, a couple of calls later, I get a call from Diane pitching me to have her come in a little bit in season one and then full time in season two. And I’m sorry yeah, it was a week before production, but you can’t get a call like that and not make it happen.

Suzanne: Right. Right. Wow. That’s great. Yeah, she’s wonderful.

Crystal: And I couldn’t have met a more unbelievable human being. She’s just incredible. Such an angel.

Suzanne: And what about Robin Riker? Did you know her before?

Crystal: Robin Riker, I actually know her through “The Golden Girls” writer; he wrote for her on “Mash.” It was so much crossover. It was crazy. And then several of my former cast mates from other soaps that are on there too, like the guy who plays my ex husband, Scott Bailey. We worked together since I was seventeen on “Guiding Light.” And a lot of people, because ultimately, I mean, Joan Collins has come out and said, “You know, soap opera stars are about the hardest working people in the business.” Because the thing is, there is no other workload like it. Like it’s the only thing that you see five days a week, every week that [unintelligible] training, and so it’s less of a series in the way that when people watch series, they watch ten, twelve episodes of something, and then they have to wait for another season to come out. Whereas it develops a totally different relationship with your fan base. Because it’s no longer like, “Oh my god!” It’s not that; it’s legitimately like they’ll come up to you and give you a piece of their mind and tell you, you know, “You need to stop giving this person a hard time,” and blah, blah, blah, bla, blah and are totally 100% in it, but like there is no like, “Hi, nice to meet you.” It’s like,”Why don’t you leave your your stepmother alone and give her a break.” And because it creates such a real family type relationship, that people forget that they don’t actually know you as a person, and also that you’re portraying a character. So, the separation is a little off, but there’s never a dull moment, I can tell you that.

Suzanne: So did you get more people coming up to you when you were playing Lizzie or when you’re playing Stacy?

Crystal: Oh, that’s a good question. I think just as much but just different, because I was so young when I was playing Lizzy. I had a lot of people like concerned, like there are a lot people waiting outside the studio tracks, like trying to introduce me to Christianity, even though if they ever looked up anything that I had said set about myself – I grew up Pentecostal Church of God and went to a bad Baptist school. So like, there’s really not much you can tell me that I haven’t heard ad nauseum, because I had to learn absolutely every single subject every kid learns in school, only the subject and how it relates to the Bible. But like they truly are concerned that I came from like a very sweet sort of nurturing side, whereas with Stacey, I think they are like, “She’s old enough to know better!” And they would give me an earful. It’s funny; it’s just different fans, because the fans – I feel like it sounds crazy, but the fans for CBS, it’s like they’re just 100% away from ABC fans. They’re just totally different types of people and demographics. It’s so weird. You would never ever think that a network would change, you know, what your fan base is going to be. Like, for instance, like “Guiding Light,” I would say, it’s definitely more of a legacy show. Like there was a lot one people that watched it, because it was like passed down to them like it was like an heirloom or something. Whereas I’d say ABC, it was the first time I actually had a lot of young fans.

Suzanne: That makes sense.

Crystal: Because there was such a broad demographic for ABC shows. ,So it was just it was it was crazy to see, because you don’t really know it until you experience it.

Suzanne: Right. Well, I watched you a little bit on “Guiding Light” and when you were on “One Life to Live,” and I liked you. You did a good job on both, but I didn’t like Stacy, because I liked Gigi and Rex together

Crystal: Yeah, nobody likes breaking up of the couples.

Suzanne: No, no, exactly…Do you still do you still know Ron? Didn’t Ron Carlivati write your character?

Crystal: My character, yes he did. He wrote my character for “GH.” No, not “GH,” for “One Life to Live.” He is at “GH” now. Yeah, he wrote my character for “One Life.” He’s such a sweetheart.

Suzanne: Yeah I thought I had read that he wrote all that, because I was like, well okay hope he does better now….Like I said you did a great job, you know, I just didn’t like Stacy. You know, it’s hard to like somebody who was so awful all the time.

Crystal: I hear you.

Suzanne: So I was wondering why – I’m sure you get a lot of flack from fans for that.

Crystal: Oh, for sure, but yeah, but that’s the one thing is I think that it probably helps that I already had covered some ground in daytime, because then there are at least enough people out there that knew that Crystal isn’t like that.

Crystal: So, I think that it saved me a little bit. I think a lot of people are trying to figure out how much of Lizzie was really me and how much of it was just the character. And because they didn’t know me from anything, because I was in the middle of my senior year of high school when I got cast. So, I think that since it established that I was not alone and doing all these crazy things, that I must not be so bad. There wasn’t like terrible hate mail. I like that. There has been, but not really as much for Stacey anymore, just because they like them together, you know, and they get used to that. And I completely understand it, but every show has to have that person.

Suzanne: Well, it probably helped you too, if you weren’t just thrown in as that being your first first character. You might have had a lot of trouble with how people treated you.

Crystal: I’m not gonna lie. I have pretty thick skin. I have a huge family that all think that they are like practical jokers and standup comics. I think there’s 99.99% sarcasm in our family. And they’re always pulling pranks on you and all that stuff. So, I feel like they’re so full of crap anyway, all the time that I just have gotten such thick skin to everything that I’m always ready to have a great response, to where I feel like I was already seasoned to handle anything at that point.

Suzanne: They prepared you for life.

Crystal: Oh, yes. No, it’s a good thing. I recommend it. Huge families are fabulous.

Suzanne: What else can you tell us about the series? It comes out in October, right?

Crystal: it came out the end of last October.

Suzanne: Okay.

Crystal: You know, like right before the whole world went on pause.

Suzanne: Crazy.

Crystal: Back when you could go to the movie theater.

Suzanne: Well, it’s a good thing it’s not a movie then.

Crystal: It’s funny though. It’s funny, because I there were so many films I did want to see. And I’m like, what’s gonna happen? Like they gotta put it on streaming somehow, but I guess they have to make a deal. And next thing you know, all these deals are being made with the shows and films that I wanted to see at the theater. They’re now streaming on streaming services. It’s so weird. It’s so weird.

Suzanne: It is weird, because all of a sudden, the definition of a movie has completely changed, hasn’t it?

Crystal: Yeah, I mean, it’s strange though. I mean, I know this has been going on for a long time now, but it still feels like if I were to wake up tomorrow, and this is all just some wacky dream, I wouldn’t be surprised. Like, it just feels so surreal. You know what I mean?

Suzanne: Yeah, I know exactly what you mean.

Crystal: it’s just too many things and too much negativity all at once. It’s just you hate seeing like, you know, this is all because of COVID and it’s messing with people brain chemicals, keeping them like the you know, sheltered up in their homes all the time and all that stuff. I mean, it’s not healthy, and then all the stuff that’s been happening in the media, the police forces and different things. It’s just like, really? Like right now? Like come on.

Suzanne: And then you’ve got what was it? Murder hornets. I don’t know what else, so many things. And then we’ve got an election coming up, so everything’s all amped up anyway in the news.

Crystal: Yeah, it’s true. It’s too much, and I refuse to watch the news. I’m not that person. If I flip on the news, it’s really hard to give me any kind of like, remote anxiety about something, but I just don’t understand. Like, it just puts you in a bad mood.

Suzanne: Yeah, it’s depressing.

Crystal: It takes you from a good mood to just being like, “blah,” so quick.

Suzanne: I know, even on a good year, it’s depressing. And this is not a good year.

Crystal: I feel like you watch it for five minutes and know what they’re gonna talk about for the next few hours. It’s like it’s cyclical. Everybody kind of rehashes certain things.

Crystal: But like, my mother loves my watching the news, and she was actually quarantined with me in LA, because she just had spine surgery. And I’m like, “Listen, Lady, I’m making some hard rules here. You can watch ten minutes a day, and if there’s something big happening, that there is some special thing that night, that there’s like some sort of thing that you feel like you need to get updated on, then we’ll see.” But it already is awful that we were in the hospital for as long as we were and then now we’re going to be trapped in this condo for as long as we are going to be and we don’t know when we are going to be let out, but then to actually have some depressing material to watch. No, thank you.

Suzanne: Yeah, that’s an older person thing, I think, watching the new over and over and over.

Crystal: It is; it really is. I’m like, if it’s important I’m sure I’ll get some sort of like, alert on my phone or something.

Suzanne: Yeah, my mother-in-law lived with us for five years, and all she watched was the news and reruns of “Law & Order.” That was is.

Crystal: Oh my God. That was my mother’s favorite. She loves that. What’s the one that Mariska Hargitay’s on?

Suzanne: Oh, “SVU.” Yeah.

Crystal: She loves that. [imitating] “Oh, I just love her, and she looks just like her mother.”

Suzanne: Yes, that’s true. She does.

Suzanne: “Just like her mother.”

Suzanne: And it’s funny, because there seems to be like, no matter what time of day you turn on the TV, there’s a “Law & Order” playing somewhere.

Crystal: It’s so true. There’re so many of them. I don’t know how they keep up with all those. Same with “CSI.” It’s like, what time is in?

Suzanne: The original “CSI” was in Vegas, and then they had one New York and one in Miami.

Crystal: Hold on “CSI” in Vegas was before New York?

Suzanne: Oh, yeah.

Crystal: See, I never knew that.

Suzanne: Yep.

Crystal: Unreal.

Suzanne: If you have any TV questions, you can always ask me. I know these things.

Crystal: I love it. I knew nothing about current television until the pandemic, because I then binged watched the first time every bit of content I think that’s probably out there.

Suzanne: There’s a lot.

Crystal: I’m a huge documentary fan, so I definitely hit those pretty hard.

Suzanne: Oh, that’s good. Yeah, there’s a lot of those. They have a lot more of those I think now too. It seems like it anyway.

Crystal: They do, and I feel like I’m seeing a lot more of those still like being made too, because I think they might fall under, well, non-union I imagine, so they probably don’t have as many laws that they have to abide by.

Suzanne: Yeah. Is that your phone?

Crystal: No, that was just the car let me know that I’m close to the curb.

Suzanne: Okay, so –

Crystal: It’s nice when the car talks to you, you know?

Suzanne: Well, you know, we’re not too far off from the whole talking car thing.

Crystal: I know right? There’re actually cars out there there, or are going to be cars out there, I think there already are, that drive themselves. That scares the crap out of me. Like there’re already enough bad drivers on the road. We don’t need any driverless cars.

Suzanne: Well, I like the idea, actually. I don’t I don’t like to drive, so it’s great for me.

Crystal: I love the idea, if it was like “The Jetsons.” I always say, that’s like the ultimate car-

Suzanne: Wait, wait, wait, wait. You want a car that drives itself, but in the air?

Crystal: Yeah! See, that’s just it. I love the concept. The problem is that I just feel like nothing ever works the way it’s projected to, so that’s my only fear, is that as a realist, it sounds fabulous, but let’s be honest, what’s the safety rating on this?

Suzanne: I think most people probably wait until they’ve been out for a while, and we all know exactly how safe they are, hopefully.

Crystal: Yes, I hope so. I do hope so.

Suzanne: I’m just giving you a hard time, I hope you know,

Crystal: Yeah. I will wait until I see how they fare, because I know there were a lot of different little things kind of like that that they were testing out, like Uber Eats and Postmates and things like that, like robotic things, and they didn’t work out so hot. So, it’s a great idea, but if it works seamlessly, if it’s flawless and great.

Suzanne: Right. Well, probably most accidents are caused by people, so, you know, if the cars are working okay and the people are not getting in the way then –

Crystal: That’s true, and as long as there is that then they’re won’t be any people falling asleep at the wheel, so that’s good.

Suzanne: Yeah, exactly, or are getting drunk or whatever.

Crystal: Very true. Uber will go out of business.

Suzanne: Yeah. So anything else you can tell us about the series for people who haven’t watched it yet?

Crystal: It is my personal modern take/twist on “The Golden Girls,” me coming from a huge, huge family of diverse ranges of ages, because all of the people in our family have kids in their early 20s and do it again their 40s, so there’re a lot of big age gaps. So, the one thing I wanted to do differently with my spin, because I know how interesting it makes things, is have someone from each decade. Because there is something that you don’t even need to write when you have women of every decade dealing with all different levels of estrogen and lack thereof, having to cohabitate and dealing with their randomly different issues. You know, it’s already fun. There’s already gonna be something entertaining there.

Suzanne: And you said you’re working on the second season now?

Crystal: No, I’m actually waiting for anybody to get back to the office to even hear anything. I know our ratings are the top show, so that’s good. But nobody’s at the office. So, it’s kind of hard.

Suzanne: Okay, but you you wrote the second season already?

Crystal: I have a list, yeah. Bob and I [unintelligible] started sorry, actually making notes of stuff as we were shooting of stuff that we want for episodes for the second season. So yes, we have a rough outline of it.

Suzanne: Cool. And do you think that the first season will be out on DVD?

Crystal: That’s a good question. I haven’t really given it much thought, because, I mean, we can sell it as a DVD, we just haven’t really gone into that, because the people who buy, it’s a different type of distribution. So, the people who would buy to do that aren’t in their offices to even have those calls yet. So, it kind of makes it hard in that way. But it is definitely a possibility. It’s just a bridge that hasn’t been crossed yet, because it is a different kind of distribution all together.

Suzanne: Yeah, I think it would work. I mean, I haven’t seen it, but I think it sounds like it would work for DVD, because you have people of all ages, and those of us who watch DVDs are older, so it would work.

Crystal: Yeah, absolutely, of course. If Netflix works, then a DVD would work. Yeah, exactly. Ultimately, it’s handy, so you have them all there readily available.

Suzanne: Right, and not everybody – there’re so many streaming services and you know, you can’t you can’t buy them all.

Crystal: You are not kidding. That is so true.

Suzanne: Well, anyway, I appreciate you calling me, and I enjoyed it. Like I said, I used to watch you all the time on the soap, so I do feel like I know you. See, like those other fans.

Crystal: Thank you, I appreciate it.

Suzanne: But you’re nicer than, you know, either of your other characters.

Crystal: Thank you. I hope so. Otherwise, I think I’d be creating some crazy publicity if I was. If I was anything like them, I can assure you, I’d probably be emulating it.

Suzanne: That’s right. All right. Well, thanks very much, and I look forward to check it out the show.

Crystal: Me too. Same here. I’d love to hear what you think.

Suzanne: Thank you.

Crystal: Thank you.

Suzanne: Bye bye.

MORE INFO:Crystal Hunt

Emmy-nominated actress Crystal Hunt, who first captured America’s attention at age 17 when she was cast as the troubled teenager ‘Lizzie Spaulding’ on the iconic CBS daytime series “Guiding Light.” Now Crystal is the writer, creator, producer and star of the new TV series “Mood Swings” that gives a modern spin on “Golden Girls.” The comedy airs on streaming service Pure Flix and follows four generations of women thrown together by circumstance to live under one roof and survive in Los Angeles. It is directed by Emmy nominated comedy director Sean Lambert (“The Larry Sanders Show,” “Freaks and Greeks”) and features Crystal’s fellow soap stars Donna Mills (“General Hospital”) and Robin Riker (“The Bold and the Beautiful”), and Oscar-nominated actress Dyan Cannon.

Mood Swings castDisillusioned with the pace of Hollywood and feeling there was a need for a great female ensemble comedy such as “Golden Girls,” “I Love Lucy,” and “Designing Women” which she grew up watching, Crystal took her career into her own hands to embrace the legacy of these female driven shows, while adding her own modern twist. Crystal Hunt is the creative and comedic force behind the series which follows ‘Farrah’ (Crystal Hunt) who after being recently divorced deals with an enormous mortgage on a Malibu mansion and so takes on roommates to earn money to support herself and her eight-year-old son ‘Ryder.’

Crystal’s new roommates include ‘Coco’ (Robin Riker), a disgruntled working woman, ‘Dani’ (BAD MOMS’ Christina DeRosa), a Canadian-Italian “culinary wizard” and aspiring actress, and ‘Emilia’ (“Ballers'” Sophia Gasca), a Dominican entrepreneur trying to secure U.S. citizenship. Jason Earles (Disney’s “Hannah Montana”) stars as ‘Farah’s’ live-in, slacker handyman.

After being spotted by an agent at the Actors Workshop in New York as a teenager, Crystal was quickly offered a role on “Guiding Light” that would last four years and earn the teenage actress an Emmy nomination. Coinciding with her rigorous television schedule, Hunt got her break into motion pictures, appearing opposite Zac Efron in the feel-good family movie THE DERBY STALLION.

Crystal returned to her television roots in 2009 when she was cast as the devious stripper ‘Stacy Morasco’ on the ABC daytime series “One Life To Live”, where she would stay for three years. She also starred on the docuseries “Queens of Drama” that followed a powerful cast of former daytime and primetime stars as they work in front of and behind the cameras to create, develop, pitch and produce a new steamy, serialized, primetime drama.

Enjoy Crystal’s remarkable behind the scenes Hollywood journey from developing the concept, writing the scripts, selling the series, casting and so much more.

    According to the CDC, more than 5 million Americans have contracted COVID-19. As the race to create a coronavirus vaccine continues, a new Gallup poll says, “many Americans appear reluctant to be vaccinated, even if a vaccine were FDA-approved and available to them at no cost. Asked if they would get such a COVID-19 vaccine … 35% would not.” A new episode of “What Would You Do?” features a teenager begging his anti-vaccine mom to let him get a vaccine. “What Would You Do?” airs Tuesday, Aug. 18 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.
    “What Would You Do?” with anchor John Quiñones reveals how people behave when they think no one is watching by using hidden cameras to record real reactions to thought-provoking scenarios created by actors.

    An unvaccinated teenager, worried he’s going to get sick, pleads with his mother to let him get a vaccine, but she is against it. How will people react when she refuses to give him permission?
    A mother at the checkout line tries to come up with the cash to buy baby formula and diapers. When the cashier steps away and the till is left open, the woman steals money out of the register.

    A pageant coach is berating her contestant and harshly criticizing her appearance. How will bystanders react?
    A child at an alligator farm in Gibson, Louisiana, tells his father that he is too afraid to hold a baby alligator. The father is disappointed in his son and tells the boy he should “act like a man.” How will others visiting the farm react?
    An older man is eating alone at a restaurant he frequently visited with a friend. When the waitress notices he’s alone, she learns that the man’s friend recently passed away. Will other diners who overhear the sad news sit with him and keep him company?

  • CBS 48 HOURS – Saturday, August 22 Show More
    Airing 8/22/20 (Saturday) (9:00 PM) VICTIMS OF A SERIAL KILLER AND RAPIST CONFRONT THEIR TORMENTOR IN AN UPDATED ENCORE OF “48 HOURS: THE GOLDEN STATE KILLER”
    Survivors of heinous sexual crimes and the loved ones of victims face their tormentor in an updated encore of 48 HOURS: “The Golden State Killer,” to be broadcast Saturday, August 22 (9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Sneak Peek
    48 HOURS was there this week for the dramatic moments and raw emotion as victims of 74-year-old Joseph DeAngelo, known as the Golden State Killer, got their chance to confront him in a Sacramento, Calif. courtroom and tell their stories at his sentencing hearing.
    “The Golden State Killer” features Tracy Smith and 48 HOURS’ investigation into the serial killer, who has pleaded guilty to having raped at least 50 women and killing 13 people between 1975 and 1986 before he vanished. He had been dubbed the Golden State Killer by late true-crime writer Michelle McNamara, who was hoping to crack the case and write a book when she died on April 21, 2016. At the time, McNamara was married to comic Patton Oswalt, who opened up to Smith about McNamara’s work and the care she had taken in digging up clues on the case.
    A former police officer, DeAngelo was arrested in 2018 after police used DNA technology to tie him to some of the crime scenes.
    48 HOURS: “The Golden State Killer” is the first part of a Saturday night double feature.
    At 10:00 PM, Erin Moriarty and 48 HOURS investigate the murder of Dr. Teresa Sievers, the police’s search for what happened, and the stunning conclusion, in “The Plot to Kill Dr. Sievers” to be broadcast on the CBS Television Network. Did a Florida man hire a look-alike to kill his wife? That’s what prosecutors say happened in the mysterious murder of Sievers, who was found bludgeoned to death in the kitchen of her Bonita Springs, Fla., home in 2015. There were no immediate suspects, and her husband, Mark Sievers, had an airtight alibi. The investigation took police on a 1,100-mile trek and turned up unlikely suspects: career criminal Jimmy Ray Rodgers and Curtis Wayne Wright, Mark Sievers’ best friend, who also happened to look just like Sievers. Wright even shaved his head when Sievers started losing his hair. The case would be far from closed with the initial arrests. Instead, the arrests led to more questions about what happened and another unexpected twist.

    20/20
    Airing Friday, August 21, 2020 (9:01 PM-11:00 PM EST) OVER 30 YEARS AFTER THE VICIOUS ATTACK ON A JOGGER IN CENTRAL PARK, ‘20/20’ PRESENTS A TWO-HOUR PROGRAM ON THE CASE THAT FOREVER CHANGED THE LIVES OF ALL INVOLVED
    Features Rare Interview With Jogger Trisha Meili and the Only Interview With Matias Reyes From the ABC News Archives, Who Confessed to Assaulting Meili
    Has Interviews With Police Involved in the Case, Speaking Out Following a Lifted Gag Order
    On the evening of April 19, 1989, 28-year-old Trisha Meili was viciously beaten, raped and left to die inside New York City’s Central Park. The series of events that followed triggered a media frenzy and forever changed the lives of all involved, including the five African American and Hispanic teenagers – Raymond Santana, Antron McCray, Yusef Salaam, Kevin Richardson and Korey Wise – who were convicted in connection with the attack due to their confessions, which they said were coerced by police. Their verdicts were later set aside after Matias Reyes confessed to and was convicted in the attack. A reinvestigation of the case against the five teenagers/men by a former federal prosecutor found that there was no police misconduct. Now, over 30 years after the attack, a two-hour “20/20” re-examines the brutal crime and its aftermath, and features a rare interview with Meili, the victim of the Central Park attack; interviews with police involved in the case, speaking out following a lifted gag order; and the only interview with Reyes from the ABC News archives, during which he confessed to raping Meili. “20/20: One Night in Central Park” airs Friday, Aug. 21 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

    When a driven Florida doctor is savagely murdered with a hammer in her home, police, as expected, immediately suspect her husband. But he has an airtight alibi. A tip, however, led police on a 1,100-mile trip that took the case in unexpected directions.
    Erin Moriarty and 48 HOURS investigate the murder of Dr. Teresa Sievers and the police search for what happened in “Eleven Hundred Miles to Murder”.
    “This beloved woman in our community had been brutally killed inside her own house,” says Jessica Lipscomb, who reported on this case for the Naples Daily News. “And then once you started to unwrap it a little bit, it was nutty. It was weird. And it was hard to keep track of it all.”
    Indeed, the investigation into what happened in the Sievers’ Bonita Springs, Fla., house that day would give police a case with more twists than the Missouri river and as much intrigue as a Hollywood mystery. Sievers and her husband Mark seemed to have a great marriage to those on the outside, but police – and reporters – would learn along the way that all was not as it seemed. Investigators would learn the couple had money issues and an open marriage, and their work would lead to potential suspects.
    Mark Sievers, who was away from home with the couple’s two daughters when his wife was murdered, immediately spoke to police without an attorney. His stepmother, Jennie Sievers Weckelman, tells Moriarty in her first TV interview that her stepson wasn’t worried about being arrested.
    “He thought, ‘Why would they? What kind of evidence could they possibly have, because I didn’t do anything,’” Weckelman recalls Mark saying.
    The murder gripped Bonita Springs. Who would want the doctor dead – and in such a vicious fashion? There was speculation on the internet that Sievers was somehow tied into a series of other suspicious deaths of other doctors around the country. Weckelman says Mark Sievers believed there could be a tie.
    Two months after the murder, however, police made a stunning announcement: Two men were arrested in Missouri and charged with murdering Dr. Sievers. One of them was nicknamed “The Hammer.”
    The case would be far from closed with the initial arrests. Instead, the arrests led to more questions about what happened and another unexpected twist.
    Was this a plot to get insurance money? Did someone hire a killer? Or was Sievers targeted by a killer out for doctors?
    “Dr. Sievers lived dramatically, and she died dramatically,” says The News-Press reporter Amy Bennett Williams.

George Baluzy, Mike Baluzy, Marlon Disla, Jud Johnston and Michael Vele are the editors. Patti Aronofsky is the senior producer. Susan Zirinsky is the senior executive producer.

Brooke on B&B

BEST LINES by Lori

Officiant: Ridge?
Ridge: Uhm-hmm?
Officiant: Was there anything else? That was more of a ‘poem’, I guess you’d call it, than vows.
Ridge: I’d like to buy an ‘A’, please, because it’s a vowel, and I would like to solve a puzzle.

————————————————————————————-

Shauna: I should be over the moon right now. I mean, the man of my dreams pledged to love me forever.
Quinn: And, he will love you forever. But, let’s just put that aside for one second and talk about something just a little bit more important. So, did you HAVE the HONEYMOON?

Recap written by Lori

As Shauna and Quinn are still celebrating the new “Mrs. Ridge Forrester,” Shauna recalls the phone call and events that led her and Ridge to the wedding chapel in Vegas. Quinn thinks it was “a good thing” that Shauna knew the guy who ran the wedding chapel, although Shauna admits he really did not want to perform the ceremony. The officiant suggested postponing the wedding, but Shauna told her friend not to ruin her wedding night and insisted he just do it, so he pronounced them husband and wife. Shauna tells Quinn she believes can still make Ridge happy as his wife but is still concerned about how it all played out. When asked about the wedding night and if she and Ridge made love, Shauna tells Quinn that the Forrester pilots barged in and dragged him away before it could happen. Quinn assures Shauna that Ridge married Shauna because he loves her and all they did was made it legal; no one needs to know, and it will always be their secret.

At Brooke’s house, Brooke has just learned that Ridge is now married to Shauna. Brooke doesn’t understand how it’s possible when their divorce papers were never filed, and Ridge can’t explain it because he doesn’t remember anything about that night; he only knows what Shauna told him, and there’s a marriage certificate. He tries to tell a devastated Brooke how sorry he is, that he loves her and wants to spend his life with her. Although they signed their divorce papers, Brooke said they were never filed. Ridge doesn’t know how it happened but thinks they must have been filed before he and Shauna got to the chapel, and Carter wouldn’t have done it if he hadn’t told him to. Ridge tells Brooke that he doesn’t want to be married to Shauna and “it’s just paperwork,” but Brooke sees it as being more than “just paperwork” – this is a betrayal. She doesn’t want to hear that he was drunk and that he doesn’t remember – she doesn’t care. She yells at him and orders him to leave. Ridge tells Brooke he loves her and always will. At Forrester Creations, Hope and Zoe talk about what a great team they make, especially the way they were able to take down Thomas together. They brainstorm on fine-tuning their messaging for the diversity and inclusion campaign and come up with a Hope for the Future Scholarship, which they will work on together. In Eric’s office, Eric and Donna are discussing Ridge marrying Shauna. Donna can’t believe it happened because Ridge never filed the divorce papers and is still married to Brooke, but Eric sadly assures her it’s real because there are pictures and a wedding certificate, and Ridge had Carter execute the divorce papers before the wedding.
