SCRIPTED SHOWS

  • AMC+ THE WATCH – Thursday, December 31 Show More
    The Watch follows an unlikely group of misfits, The City Watch, who are forced to find the guts to save the world, surprising even themselves in the process. The comedic yet thrilling series pits trolls, werewolves, wizards and other improbable heroes against an evil plot to resurrect a great dragon which would lead to the destruction of life as they know it. From lead writer and executive producer Simon Allen (The Musketeers), the modern and inclusive series is inspired by the characters created by Sir Terry Pratchett’s famous “Discworld” novels, including the captain of The City Watch Sam Vimes (Richard Dormer, Game of Thrones), the last scion of nobility Lady Sybil Ramkin (Lara Rossi, I May Destroy You), the naïve but heroic Carrot (Adam Hugill, 1917), the mysterious Angua (Marama Corlett, Blood Drive) and the ingenious forensics expert Cheery (Jo Eaton-Kent, Don’t Forget the Driver) together with The Watch’s own idiosyncratic depiction of Death (Wendell Pierce, The Wire). Promo

Likewise, Jenna isn’t sold on her cousin’s proposal but her dance school is struggling and the money from this job would allow her to continue to follow her passion and spread her love of dance. So, Ryan takes up temporary residence in the cozy guest house on her farm and the two get to work. After a bumpy start, Ryan begins to listen to her instruction and when he fully buys in, begins to make progress in his recovery. As Jenna and Ryan spend more time together outside of ballet class – taking in the local Winterfest Arts Fair, enjoying game night with her neighbors and best friends during a power outage on a snowy night – it’s clear there’s a growing attraction between them. But when it’s time for Ryan to go back to New York and lace up his skates again it’s a bittersweet return.

    Airing 1/2/21 (Saturday) (10:00 PM) COULD THE INVESTIGATION INTO WHAT HAPPENED TO A GEORGIA TEACHER AND FORMER BEAUTY QUEEN HAVE BEEN SOLVED YEARS AGO?
    “48 Hours” Investigates in “The Tara Grinstead Mystery” Saturday, Jan. 2 Preview
    Tara Grinstead was a teacher and former beauty queen when she disappeared in October 2005. But nearly 12 years would pass before investigators finally learned what happened – and now recent revelations indicate local law enforcement and state investigators may have been able to solve the case soon after she vanished. Correspondent Peter Van Sant and 48 HOURS investigate the young woman’s disappearance and the quest for answers in “The Tara Grinstead Mystery” to be broadcast Saturday, Jan. 2 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
    John McCullough, who maintains he tried to get investigators a key tip in 2007 that could have cracked the case, speaks out on television the first time on 48 HOURS. McCullough said a buddy named Bo Dukes told him he knew who killed Grinstead. McCullough said he called authorities but they never followed up.
    “He told me that his friend accidentally strangled her and he needed help getting rid of the body,” McCullough tells Van Sant.
    The small town of Ocilla, Ga., has been consumed with suspicion and theories about the disappearance of Grinstead. On the morning of Oct. 22, 2005, Grinstead helped some teens prepare for a local beauty pageant. She later went to a cookout and was last seen heading home.
    “There were people who believed she ran away. Somebody has abducted her and holding her somewhere hostage. And, the one we didn’t want to think about was somebody killed her,” says Jannis Paulk, who started a website to help find Grinstead.
    “I covered this story for 12 years, and hardly anyone thought this case would ever be solved,” Van Sant reports.
    For years the case was a mystery – even when people who said knew something began to talk.
    McCullough says he left a message on a tip line willing to help and no one called back, even when he reached out to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. “I would say from the year of 2007 until 2016, I would probably say I reached out nine or 10 times to the GBI,” McCullough says.
    A decade after McCullough’s attempt to reach investigators, Brooke Sheridan came forward with a similar story from the same Bo Dukes, then her boyfriend. She said Dukes confided to her that his friend, Ryan Duke, no relation, but a similar name, said he killed Grinstead during a robbery. Bo Dukes also told Sheridan that he helped Ryan Duke burn her body at a pecan orchard. Brooke Sheridan says she encouraged Bo Dukes to tell his story to investigators.
    “I said, ‘You need to confess. You need to own what you’ve done and confess,” Sheridan says.
    Was this the evidence investigators needed to move forward? And what really happened? It seems that question is still up for debate.
    Bo Dukes was convicted on charges relating to covering up the crime and sentenced to 25 years in prison. Ryan Duke was arrested in 2017 and is awaiting trial. He has pleaded not guilty and his defense team has made public statements that Bo Dukes killed Grinstead, not Ryan Duke.
    Will Grinstead’s friends and family ever really know what happened to her?
    “I have come to the conclusion that I’m just gonna have to live the rest of my life not knowing,” says friend Maria Woods Harber.
    48 HOURS: “The Tara Grinstead Mystery” is produced by Alec Sirken and Lauren Clark. Michelle Feuer is the development producer. Shaheen Tokhi and David Dow are the associate producers. Greg Kaplan, Phillip J. Tangel and Marcus Balsam are the editors. Anthony Batson is the senior broadcast producer. Nancy Kramer is the executive editor. Judy Tygard is the executive producer.

Primetime DVD Review: “DC’s Stargirl: The Complete First Season” (Blu-ray + Digital Copy)

DC's Stargirl: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray + Digital Copy) DVD cover

“DC’s Stargirl: The Complete First Season” Review by Suzanne 9/25/20

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this post. The opinions I share are my own.

I never miss an episode of this show. It’s a fun teen superhero show. At first, I thought it was interesting but a bit pedestrian, but it got better as the season went along.  This show is definitely aimed at teens more than the other superhero shows. It’s a little more light and fun than those other shows. Which is not to say that the stakes aren’t just as high.

This is the original season, so it was fun to watch them put together the JSA. The only thing I don’t like is that all of their powers seem to come from objects. I guess it was the only way they could find a way to write teenagers with powers. It would be too coincidental if they all just happened to live in the same town.

The first JSA comics were written in the 40’s, so they were probably wise to update them.  Part of me, though would have loved to have seen a JSA series based on the same ones we saw in “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” with Patrick J. Adams as Hourman.  I used to read about the JSA when I was a kid. This TV show, “Stargirl” is based on a comic book from the 90’s, which is very different.

If you like superheroes, or you have children who like them, you should buy this DVD.  There are no special features on the DVD, though. Perhaps because of coronavirus…a lot of the DVD’s I’m seeing now are lacking in extras. I read that the versions of the show that aired on The CW are shorter than the ones that aired on DC Universe. You would think that would make for an interesting feature.

Primetime DVD Review: “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels – Season One”

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels – Season One DVD cover

“Penny Dreadful: City of Angels – Season One” Review by Suzanne 9/25/20

This show was created by the same writer, John Logan, who created the original “Penny Dreadful” series on Showtime. Fans of that show will be disappointed in this new series because it’s not as supernatural and not as good. The acting is very good, and it’s filmed beautifully. The story is a bit of a mess, though. There are just too many characters and many different things going on, which makes it confusing.

I’m not saying it’s not worth watching — Nathan Lane alone is a reason to watch — but just don’t expect it to be as good as the original series. Also, Showtime canceled it, so there won’t be any more episodes. That’s too bad because Logan created a good time and place for us to enjoy. Perhaps season 2 would have been better.

MORE INFORMATION:

The thrilling drama Penny Dreadful: City of Angels – Season One is coming to DVD on September 29 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment. Follow Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane) as they explore a grim murder that took place in Los Angeles 1938.

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels – Season One

Street Date: September 29, 2020

Format: DVD

Description: 1938 Los Angeles is a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega and his partner Lewis Michener become embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart.

“Rick & Morty Season 4” Review by Suzanne 9/20/20

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this post. The opinions I share are my own.

I’ve never liked this show…. it seems aimed at teenage boys.  The artwork is terrible (and frequently gross). It can be creative as far as the stories, but the jokes are not very funny. I tried to watch this, and I think I laughed once.

There are no features or extras on this disk. That’s disappointing. I always enjoy watching the BTS features.

I know the show is very popular, though, so if you’re a fan of the series, this DVD set is a must-have.  The fans are very loyal. They had to wait two years for new episodes of the series.  The show was renewed for season 5. Let’s hope the pandemic doesn’t make these poor souls wait another two years!

Here’s a trailer.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Fifth Season (Blu-ray + Digital + Bonus Disc) cover

“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Fifth Season” Review by Suzanne 9/20/20

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this post. The opinions I share are my own.

I love this show and never miss an episode. I’ve loved it even more since Constantine (Matt Ryan) joined the cast because I love him and his NBC series that was canceled far too early. This show is constantly changing characters and actors, which I don’t really like. I was sad to see Ray leaving at the end of the season. I hope they bring him back. I didn’t like the new version of Zari or “Charlie” too much, but her brother was a great addition. I wasn’t too happy to see that Nick was in fewer episodes, either. I liked seeing Astra and them pursuing more of Constantine’s history and story.

The stories were good, and fun as usual. I would have liked to have seen them involved in the crossover episodes, though.  I’m really looking forward to next Spring when we have the new season!

If you love this show, you should definitely buy this DVD.  The features are slim, but they do have them.  Many DVD’s and their features have been adversely affected by the coronavirus. At least this show did manage to get all of their episodes filmed. I think they would have had better DVD features if not for the pandemic.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow follows a group of misfit heroes as they fight, talk, and sing their way through protecting the timeline from aberrations, anomalies, and anything else that threatens to mess with history. After saving the world via the power of song and themed entertainment in last season’s finale, the Legends are major celebrities. Some struggle with the transition from lovable losers to A-list stars, while others start letting fame go to their heads. When a documentary crew decides to film the Legends in action, distracting them from their original mission, Astra Logue frees history’s most notorious villains from Hell in a bid for power. It’s up to the Legends to forgo fame and stop these reanimated souls (who they quickly dub “Encores”) from wreaking havoc on the timeline, whether it’s Rasputin popping out of his coffin and trying to become an immortal tsar or Marie Antoinette (and her head) turning the French Revolution into a deadly, non-stop party.

The Good Fight: Season Four DVD cover

 

“The Good Fight: Season Four” Review by Suzanne 9/20/20

I love this show and always enjoying watching it. They took some interesting chances this season, but they worked. The first episode was an alternate reality (a dream by Diane).  Most of the season is about Diane and company trying to find out what the mysterious “Memo 618” is.

The season was cut short (as it was for most TV shows). Episode 7 was the unintended finale for the season, so they had to add some scenes that were intended for later episodes.  They usually have 10 episodes per season. I don’t think it’s all that noticeable, though. They did a good job with it.  I guess that’s why there are no features. That’s too bad.

Still, it’s a great season of this show and worth buying or renting.  Don’t miss it!

MORE INFORMATION:

The Good Fight: Season Four

Street Date: September 22, 2020

Format: DVD

Season four of The Good Fight finds Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart navigating a very different landscape. After they lost their biggest client, Chumhum, and their founding partner’s name was tarnished, Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart was forced to accept an offer by a huge multinational law firm, STR Laurie, to become a small subsidiary. Suddenly, all of their decisions can be second-guessed by the giant firm that is literally on top of them. While STR Laurie initially seem like benevolent overlords, we find Diane Lockhart and her colleagues chafing at their loss of independence while simultaneously investigating the emergence of a mysterious “Memo 618.”

Cats & Dogs 3: Paws Unite! (Blu-ray+ DVD+ Digital)

“Cats & Dogs 3: Paws Unite!” Review by Suzanne 9/10/20

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this post. The opinions I share are my own.

This is a fun family movie. I enjoyed watching it. It has a lot of humor and action. I didn’t see the first two movies, but it didn’t matter at all.

This is a live action movie, not a cartoon. The human drama involves two single-parent families who live in an apartment building. One family is a mother and her teen boy. He’s a tennis phenom, and she’s a bit of a stage mother.  He owns the dog named Roger (voiced by Max Greenfield).  The other family is a musician and his teen daughter.  She owns a cat, Gwen (voiced by Melissa Rauch). The cat and dog are secretly members of a worldwide organization that makes sure that cats and dogs stay out of trouble.

A criminal mastermind causes cats and dogs to start fighting again, despite a decades-long truce. It’s up to Roger, Gwen and their friends to figure out who’s doing it and stop them.  There are some other animals in this one, including a parrot (George Lopez), an alligator, a frog, a spider, snakes and more.  It’s a very enjoyable movie.

There is a “behind the scenes” feature on the DVD, a short “deep animal thoughts” feature and a gag reel that really isn’t a gag reel. I was very glad to see that the closed-captioning is available in the extras as well as the movie itself. That isn’t always the case with DVD’s.

You should rent or buy this DVD if you love animals or have children or grandkids.

MORE INFORMATION:

About Cats & Dogs 3: Paws Unite!
It’s been 10 years since the creation of the Great Truce, an elaborate joint-species surveillance system designed and monitored by cats and dogs to keep the peace when conflicts arise. But when a tech-savvy villain hacks into wireless networks to use frequencies only heard by cats and dogs, he manipulates them into conflict, and the worldwide battle between cats and dogs is BACK ON.

Primetime DVD Review: “Ben 10 vs. The Universe: The Movie”

Ben 10 vs. The Universe: The Movie DVD cover

“Ben 10 vs. The Universe: The Movie” Review by Suzanne 10/20/20

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this post. The opinions I share are my own.

“Ben 10” is a long-running animated TV series. There have been 5 different TV series and 5 movies. This is the latest film. Ben is a kid who acquires a wristwatch known as the Omnitrix. It uses alien dna to transform him into different creatures with armor, powers etc. He uses it to fight villains and defend his family.  It’s not just an action show, though. Ben learns many things, with the help of his uncle, grandfather and cousin – it’s educational and family-oriented; it’s won many awards.

In the movie, Ben goes to space to thwart a meteor and ends up being taken by aliens. He has a few adventures. Meanwhile, an evil alien is trying to take over the earth.  Ben is bored and impatient at the beginning of the movie, but he gets more adventure than he bargained for and learns a few things along the way.

While it’s definitely a kid’s show, it has a lot of humor in it. Adults might enjoy that – especially those who like cartoons. Of course, there are also many “Ben 10” action figures and other toys that tie in with the show and movie.

This would make a great gift for any child. Also, you don’t have to have seen any of the previous shows or movies to know what’s going on. It’s pretty easy to pick up and start watching.  The DVD doesn’t have a lot of features. It shows some of the scenes before they were colored and finished, and it it has some static artwork.

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.

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.

The Good Doctor - Season Three DVD cover

“The Good Doctor – Season Three DVD cover” Review by Suzanne 8/10/20

I enjoyed watching all the episodes of this DVD. I don’t watch the show regularly, so I haven’t seen the first two years.  It was easy to watch, even though I missed all of those episodes.  It’s basically like any hospital show you’ve seen before, such as Grey’s  Anatomy, ER, Chicago Hope, Chicago Med, et al.  From what I’ve read, they’re very accurate with the medical scenes.  It’s mostly a soap opera with medical stories…a little bit like “General Hospital” used to be, before they brought in spies and mobsters.  If you buy the foremost conceit of the show, which is that a high-functioning autistic person (Freddie Highmore, who plays Shaun) could become a surgeon, and you don’t think the main character is irritating, then you’ll probably enjoy the show.

The show was developed by David Shore (“House” – another medical show), based upon a Korean series.  The stories are very good, and the acting is fabulous. Sure, some of the things that happen might be a little cliché.  For instance, every single medical show I’ve ever watched has a scene where some person is trapped under or beneath something, and they seem fine, but then the doctor discovers that if that thing holding them down is lifted, they’ll bleed out and die.  That happened in the two-part finale of this season.  The ending of the season, and that two-parter, was also pretty predictable.  Another story, about a main character dying, did surprise me, though.

In general, it’s very entertaining. Just don’t expect the stories to astound or shock you too much.  It’s worth watching, especially if you like hospital dramas, and it has some great actors, and some very attractive people. It’s not the best show on TV, though. It’s a good ensemble show.  Even though Highmore is the star, he has a large cast of talented actors to support him, including Hill Harper, Richard Schiff, Nicholas Gonzalez, Antonia Thomas, Christina Chang, Paige Spara, Fiona Gubelmann, Jasika Nicole and Will Yun Lee. They have some great guest-stars, too.

The DVD only has two features: a gag reel, and some deleted scenes. That’s pretty disappointing. Perhaps we can blame the scarce features on the Coronavirus.  The series wasn’t cut short for that, though. It has 20 episodes – 2 more than it had the first two seasons. It always ends in March. I was very grateful that they had great closed-captioning and that they had the “Play All Episodes” choice. Some DVD’s don’t do that, which I find annoying.  I hope that next time, they can come up with some better extras for the DVD set.

Primetime DVD Review: “Batwoman – The Complete First Season on Blu-ray”

Batwoman - The Complete First Season Blu-ray cover

“Batwoman – The Complete First Season” Review by Suzanne 5/20/20

This is a great comic book show, and a good entry into the “Arrowverse” (or whatever they’re calling the superhero shows on The CW now). I’ve enjoyed watching every episode each week. They do a great job with balancing the action and the character development, with a little bit of humor. At first, I tried to compare it with “Gotham,” but it’s a very different show. However, it does have certain qualities that are similar to that show.  It can be very twisted, bizarre and wacky at times (particularly the villains).

The season ending with some shockers – especially the reveal of Bruce Wayne’s lookalike. After the season ended, it was revealed that star Ruby Rose would not be returning as Kate Kane. This is a terrible disappointment because she did such a great job in the role.  She will definitely be missed. I hope that the person that replaces her as Batwoman (not as Kate Kane) will be just as good. I have to wonder how this will affect the rest of the show, which was built around Kate’s father, sister, enemies, girlfriends, etc.

The DVD is just as good as the series. I’m  reviewing the Blu-ray here.  There is a lack of extras, however. Perhaps that’s because of the pandemic? I don’t know. The only features are “The Best of DC TV’s Comic-Con Panels San Diego 2019” and deleted scenes. That sure isn’t enough. I hope that future versions (perhaps the complete set) will have a lot more than that.

Primetime DVD Review: “NCIS: The Seventeenth Season”

DVD Review!


NCIS: The Seventeenth Season DVD cover

“NCIS: The Seventeenth Season” Review by Suzanne 8/8/20

There’s a reason that NCIS is always at the top of the broadcast ratings chart.  It has solid stories and interesting characters.  The cast changes sometimes, but they always have other fun or interesting people to fill in their places.  Of course, Tony and Abby are greatly missed by the fans. Ziva is, too, but we see her a few times this season. It’s great to have her back. I wish Ducky wasn’t retired, but we still see him occasionally. Mark Harmon is getting up there, but he’s still a fine actor.

It’s the 17th season, but in some ways it seems like this show has been on for 25 years. I can barely remember before it started.  It’s a reliable series that shows us great drama as well as laughs and mystery.  You really can’t go wrong watching any episode of the show.  I used to watch it regularly, but I was watching too many shows, which made it hard to keep up, so I stopped watching all the NCIS series (among others).  It doesn’t matter, though, because you can start watching again any time and not feel like you missed anything. Maria Bello (Jack) and Wilmer Valderrama (Nick) are fine recent additions.   I’m glad that they added some more people of color, like Walderrama and Diona Reasonover (Kacie).  NCIS always changes with the times and keeps up on what’s new in the world – even though it’s audience is most likely to be seniors over 50, they do get a fair share of people 18-34 watching.

I really like the teasing romance between Gibbs and Jack. I hope they carry that further.  His friendship with the neighbor kid was also very heartwarming.  Nick and Eleanor (Emily Wickersham) also have a fun will-they-or-won’t-they kind of friendship. There was a lot of great action this season, too, of course.  You can easily watch this without having to “catch up” on previous seasons.

The extras are good. They have two episode-specific features and two main ones.  “Other Times. Other Lives” is about the episode “Epherema” in which they go through an old man’s letters and other things to learn the origin of a coin. The actors play the parts of the man and others in the 70’s, which is fun. It’s great to see them as other characters, and it’s clear they had fun with it.  “Hallowed Ground: The Arizona” is about the last episode of the season, “The Arizona.”  Christopher Lloyd plays an eccentric old guy who steals a couple’s purple heart (from their late daughter).  He wants to be buried among the dead at the Pearl Harbor monument. One of the things  that makes this episode interesting is how Gibbs makes him face what happened way back then. It wasn’t planned to be the series’ last episode of the season, but it worked out to be, due to the coronavirus.  There is a feature about the making of the season, and another one about Ziva’s return.  Make sure you watch the episodes first because the features will have spoilers.

This would make a great gift for anyone! Put it on your holiday gift list.

MORE INFORMATION:

Description: NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) is more than just an action drama. With liberal doses of humor, it’s a show that focuses on the sometimes complex and always amusing dynamics of a team forced to work together in high-stress situations. NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, a former Marine gunnery sergeant whose skills as an investigator are unmatched, leads this troupe of colorful personalities. Gibbs, a man of few words, only needs a look to explain it all. The team includes NCIS Special Agent Timothy McGee, an MIT graduate with a brilliance for computers; NCIS Special Agent Eleanor “Ellie” Bishop, a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fierce determination and idealism who specializes in international threat assessment and global preparation; the charismatic, unpredictable and resilient NCIS Special Agent Nicholas “Nick” Torres, who has spent most of his career on solo undercover assignments; and NCIS Special Agent Jacqueline “Jack” Sloane, who built her reputation as the agency’s premier forensic psychologist and enjoys challenging Gibbs. From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines, these special agents investigate all crimes with Navy or Marine Corps ties.

Primetime DVD Review: “Evil – Season One”

DVD Review!




EVIL: Season One DVD cover

“EVIL: Season One” Review by Suzanne 6/25/20

This is a good show, which isn’t surprising, since it’s written by the same writers that make “The Good Fight” and made “The Good Wife” (husband and wife team Michelle and Robert King)  You might be surprised that the writers, who are so good with legal and political shows, would do a horror show.  That means you forgot their previous CBS show “Braindead,” which was a horror-political-satire back in 2016.  Sadly, that one didn’t last longer than a year. In part, I think it’s because it was a little gross, and in part, it tried to do too many things at once. Not say that there isn’t some humor in “EVIL” because there is plenty. It’s mostly serious, though.

“EVIL” is about a team of three – David, an ex-journalist, now training to be a priest (Mike  Colter); Kristen, a psychologist (Katja Herbers) and Ben, the tech guy (Aasif Mandvi).  The team investigates events that may be spiritual, such as possessions or miracles.  David is a believer, of course.  Ben is a skeptic.  Kristen is somewhere in between. She isn’t sure what to think. Most of the show is seen through her eyes. The Catholic church pays for them to investigate these possible demon- or angel-involved events. The marvelous Christine Lahti plays Kristen’s mom.  The show gets more interesting when we see the flaws of the characters. It can also be creepy and scary, like any good horror show.

Make no mistake, this is a show about the supernatural. In the very first episode, we meet Leland (the wonderful Michael Emerson), who is either the devil or working for him.  Kristen is visited by a demon named George in her dreams.  Each episode has its own event, but there is also a larger story arc here, involving 60 demons.  As you watch more episodes, you learn more about the story arc.  I’m not saying it’s a perfect. There are some things in the show that don’t make a lot of sense. For instance, in the first episode, Leland steals her therapists’ notes and then uses them against her with the criminal she’s been analyzing (in her previous job, working for the D.A.). So why doesn’t she press charges against him? Her therapist saw the guy and could identify him.  They merely glossed over it in the second episode, with the D.A. saying that Leland explained his account was hacked. At the end of another episode, a man they have been investigating jumps off the roof. They never mentioned that again. Sometimes the characters do things that just make me scream at the TV, “Why are you doing that? Stupid!” but not too often.

It’s compelling drama, fun horror (and sometimes very scary), and well worth watching, despite a few flaws. I’m very glad to have the DVD because I didn’t watch the show regularly when it was on TV. I’m glad it got renewed for a second season, too.  If you’re very religious, especially Catholic, then you may not like it.  You’ll have to watch it and judge for yourself.  I’m sure it would be extra fun to watch this during Halloween.  Some of the episodes are  very scary, such as the Christmas episode, or the one where David is in the hospital. The show really exploits our fears, like things in our ears, or creepy children, or being in the hospital.

There are a few great extras. First, they have deleted scenes for many of the episodes. There are also two nice features. One is “Season One: Genesis” and the other is “Does Evil Exist?”  The first talks about the show and its background. The second is very interesting and a bit philosophical. You should definitely watch this DVD.

MORE INFORMATION:

Coming to DVD on June 30 is the new hit series Evil: Season One from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment.

The supernatural drama Evil: Season One stars Dutch actress Katja Herbers (Westworld) and Mike Colter (Luke Cage). The new series follows skeptical female psychologist Kristen Bouchard (Herbers) who joins carpenter and priest-in-training David Acosta (Colter) as they investigate the Church’s backlog of unexplained mysteries, including supposed miracles, demonic possessions, and hauntings.

Street Date: June 30, 2020

Format: DVD

Description: Evil is a psychological mystery that examines the origins of evil along the dividing line between science and religion. The series focuses on a skeptical female psychologist who joins a priest-in-training and a carpenter as they investigate the Church’s backlog of unexplained mysteries, including supposed miracles, demonic possessions, and hauntings. Their job is to assess if there is a logical explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work.

Primetime DVD Review “Amazon Empire”

DVD Review!




FRONTLINE: Amazon Empire: The Rise and Reign of Jeff Bezos DVD cover

“FRONTLINE: Amazon Empire: The Rise and Reign of Jeff Bezos” Review by Suzanne 5/20/20

I have to confess that I love Amazon. I started online in 94 and started shopping as soon as I could, on Amazon and other places. I also started in their affiliate program (I’m still on there, although it doesn’t pay that much). I’ve been shopping on Amazon in 1997 and spend hundreds of dollars there every week. I even wrote a paper for my class this past spring about it. I knew about some of the drawbacks of the site; how they treated their employees. This documentary, however, shows me that there is even more to know.

One thing that Amazon does well is take care of its customers. They are rare in that sense. As it says in the doc, Amazon puts customer care over everything else. This is why they have that customer loyalty. I think some people might be shocked if they watch this documentary, though.  Some of their business tactics are pretty underhanded. Part of the reason Amazon thrives is that they always try new things, and they treat their customers well. If more companies did that, then they would give Amazon more competition.

You should enjoy watching this. Some of it the stuff they claim about Jeff Bezos is scary. You have to decide for yourself whether it’s worth it to keep shopping there or not.

MORE INFORMATION:

Frontline: Amazon Empire: The Rise and Reign of Jeff Bezos

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos build a business empire that is unprecedented in the history of American capitalism–delivering endless products, entertainment services and technology innovations to customers with just a click of a button. But what is the cost of Amazon’s convenience?

FRONTLINE examines Amazon and Jeff Bezos’ ascent to power–and his ability to shape everything from the future of work, to the future of commerce, to the future of technology. From award-winning filmmakers James Jacoby and Anya Bourg (The Facebook Dilemma), the documentary draws on interviews with current top executives and former insiders, as well as regulators and critics, raising tough questions about Bezos and the empire he built. Through these interviews, Jacoby and Bourg’s investigation presents an inside look at who Bezos is, and how he transformed a tiny company run out of a garage into a staple of American consumerism that critics contend is willing to dominate the market at all costs.

“East Lake Meadows – A Public Housing Story” Review by Suzanne 5/20/20

This is very educational. As someone who grew up in the 70’s, I enjoyed watching their old films and hearing about life in the public housing. I had heard about Cabrini Green and some other public housing places before and always wondered how the residents could let their homes get so filthy and filled with drugs and graffiti. Now after watching this, I know how wrong I was to think that way. The residents had no money, and the city was supposed to be taking care of the grounds and repairs of the houses. They didn’t, so the places went to ruin. That’s just sad, and another disgusting part of our history when it comes to treatment of the poor (especially poor and black).

They did a good job showing what went on back then, with photos, testimony and some videos. It’s too bad that so many people were forced out. This was done by Ken Burns, but it’s not one of his really long documentaries. It’s definitely worth watching.

MORE INFORMATION:

Ken Burns Presents: East Lake Meadows

In 1970, the Atlanta Housing Authority opened East Lake Meadows, a public housing community on the edge of the city. Over the next 25 years, many thousands of low-income Atlantans, mostly African American, would call it home. Shoddy construction and a lack of funding left the project and surrounding landscape in disrepair and led to a rapid decline in the quality of life. As public housing in America became increasingly stigmatized, and a crack epidemic overwhelmed East Lake Meadows, the neighborhood became nearly uninhabitable, but residents nonetheless found ways to overcome violence and neglect, raise kids, find work, and create moments of joy. In the mid-1990s, Atlanta bulldozed East Lake Meadows to make way for new mixed-income housing, as government and philanthropic funds poured into the area in an effort to create a thriving community.

Through the stories of the former residents, East Lake Meadows: A Public Housing Story gives voice to some of the most marginalized people in our society and raises critical questions about how we have created concentrated poverty and limited housing opportunity for African Americans, and what responsibility we have as a people to ensure decent housing for our most vulnerable citizens.

Primetime DVD Review “Blood Sugar Rising”

DVD Review!


Blood Sugar Rising DVD cover

“Blood Sugar  Rising” Review by Suzanne 5/20/20

This was very interesting and informative. I think everyone who is pre-diabetic or loves someone with diabetes should watch it. For those of us who already have diabetes, we probably know most of the information already. Still, I did learn some things. I didn’t know that you could be thin and young, and still get diabetes. I knew diabetes was an epidemic in this country, but I didn’t realize how bad the numbers are. I didn’t know that 10% of us have it. That’s very sad and disturbing.

Until the federal and state governments really work together on this, nothing is going to change. There needs to be free diabetes medicine and supplies for everyone. There needs to be much more nutrition information in the schools, especially with regards to sugar. Schools should not have soda and candy machines on campus; nor should the cafeterias be selling junk food. Schools should have plenty of money, too, for making nutritious food for their students. They also need to bring back home economics for all students and really teach them about growing, cooking and eating healthy food. Since most parents today don’t know how to cook or eat in a healthy manner — the schools need to fill in those gaps. Also, the schools could have programs for the parents to learn about these things as well.

Anyway, it was a good program, although hard to watch in some ways. There is also a very good short film with it, all about diabetes in Native American reservations and in Hawaii. I found this particularly interesting, since I used to live in Hawaii.

MORE INFORMATION:

Blood Sugar Rising

Diabetes is hidden epidemic that affects over 100 million people in the US, costing close to $350 billion each year. It’s now predicted that one in three children born in this century will likely develop the disease.

Blood Sugar Rising puts human faces to these statistics, presenting intimate stories of Americans living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and personal voices from the battle against the disease. Their struggles and successes showcase the dramatic impact of this national public health crisis. The two-hour special also reveals new hopes for diabetes management and prevention–from the rise of new medical treatments to exciting discoveries about lifestyle and environmental factors–and asks a provocative question: Why isn’t there a war on diabetes?

World on Fire Season One DVD cover

“World on Fire” Review by Suzanne 4/20/20

This is a great wartime series, which I started watching on PBS. I love Helen Hunt, and she’s outstanding in this. I love Sean Bean and Arthur Darvill from their previous work, too. All of the actors do a great job. One of the young actors looks like a young John Cusack, only more handsome.

It’s got everything you’d want in a wartime drama, plus a little romance and fun. This is what they used to do as miniseries, back in the 70’s and 80’s, with “Winds of War” and things like that. This is more realistic than those were, though. The war still rages by the end of the season, though, so I can’t wait for season 2 to see what happens to the characters.

Make sure that you watch this with the closed-captioning on, especially if you’re American or older because it’s hard to understand, otherwise, with the thick accents.

Summer 1939. Harry, a translator at the British Embassy in Warsaw, is falling in love with Polish waitress Kasia. When German tanks roll into Poland, and Britain declares war on Germany, Harry and Kasia face terrible choices. With her life in grave danger, can Harry help her–and if he can, how will he ever explain himself to Lois Bennett, the girl he left behind in Manchester? As the Nazi threat spreads across Europe, Kasia must choose between love and fighting for her country, Harry must find his place in the world, and Lois must seize new opportunities the war presents.
The conflict overturns everything for Harry’s snobbish mother Robina; for Douglas, Lois’ pacifist father; and for her younger brother Tom, who joins the Navy and finds himself under fire in one of the first major battles of the war. In Berlin, outspoken American journalist Nancy risks her life trying to help her neighbors; while in Paris, Nancy’s nephew, medic Webster refuses to leave the city and the man he loves.
World on Fire traverses the first year of WWII, from ordinary life in England to the beaches of Dunkirk, diving deep into the hearts and minds of those living their lives during this extraordinary time as they grapple with the unthinkable: a world in flames.

Star Trek: Short Treks DVD cover

“Star Trek: Short Treks” Review by Suzanne 5/20/20

I’m a huge “Star Trek” fan, and I had just gotten around to watching “Star Trek: Discovery,” so I was very happy to get this DVD collection of “Short Treks.” I hadn’t seen them before. They’re very good. Some are funny, and some are cute, and some are very poignant. After watching all of these, I had to track down the last one, “Children of Mars,” which is not on this DVD. It aired much later, so that’s probably why. It’s very good and should win an Emmy, IMHO. Scifi rarely wins Emmys, though.

You should definitely watch “Star Trek: Discovery” before watching these because otherwise you might be a little confused because the characters are from that show. Too bad they didn’t make any Short Treks for all the other Star Trek series!!! Those would have been fantastic to watch.

There are a lot of features on the DVD’s, too, such as “The Making of Short Treks.” I especially enjoyed the tribbles episode and behind-the-scenes feature, not only because I’m a long-time Star Trek fan, but also because I’ve interviewed David Gerrold before.

This DVD would make a great gift for any Star Trek fan. I hope they come out with more of them next season.
