You may know Jason Biggs from American Pie and Maggie Lawson from Psych but put them together as parents in this funny mid-season show Outmatched? I’m here for it. It may seem a little like Big Bang Theory but set now and in Atlanitic City, Mike and Cay are trying to raise three certified geniuses and one “normal” child. What are these parents going to do when your kids can actually change the world but your parenting skills are seriously “Outmatched.” This looks funny and I hope it does well.
NOT JUST ME
This is the one that made me cry. I love Brittany Snow and Timothy Hutton. And it’s brought to you by the people who have brought you some of the best TV, Friday Night Lights and Parenthood. Brittany plays Julia Bechley, the daughter of a renowned fertility doctor who as it turns out used his own sperm to conceive hundreds of other children. Julia had been an only child but through this process she discovers she has sisters. Whoever did the music cues and editing on this got me crying! This looks just like my type of show Wednesdays after the Masked Singer.
Have you seen those creepy videos of Alexa laughing at nothing? Do you have an Alexa? I bet after watching this trailer you’d get rid of your Alexa. Leave it to Howard Stark to create rogue AI that has invaded our lives on every level. All kidding aside, when you have a Jeff Bezos/Steve Jobs type join forces with a Homeland Cyber Security to stop rogue artificial Intelligence the show could provide the type thrill seeking adventure missing from your weekly TV line up.
But if nostalgia is more your game, Fox has you covered there too. For six episodes check out BH90210 and original Beverly Hills, 90210 cast members Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling. Following their current everyday lives or the 40-something lives (I know this because we graduated the same year) of Kelly Taylor and Brandon and Brenda Walsh or Donna Martin and David Silver? Steve Sanders and Andrea Zuckerman and of course, I’m hoping a nod to Dylan McKay. Airing in August, I can’t wait to see what they do.
While this seems ripped from the headlines and almost exactly the opposite of “Not Just Me,” Filthy rich stars Kim Cattrall as the grieving widow of the wealthy CEO mega-church network who died in plane crash, with his mistresses. She’s shocked to find out those weren’t his first indiscretions and in fact, there are three other children in his will. What lengths will they go to protect the name, the church, and the family in this steamy drama?
You guys! it’s an #EGBTT moment! Michael Sheen plays a serial killer! On Monday nights, this creepy thriller is for those of you who will miss Criminal Minds. Malcom Bright saw his father locked away when he was caught for being the serial killer “The Surgeon.” Now, he’s a criminal psychologist and Lou Diamond Phillips works for the NYPD and wants him on the case, a copy-cat case of his fathers. He knows his father is crazy, yet he still wants to impress him. and Michael Sheen sure can play the crazy.
I’m not going to lie, I watched this and went “Are you kidding me?” Also I didn’t recognize Stephen Dorff. Living in Los Angeles County and knowing how we elect a sheriff and then I have suspend reality that there is some weird rule that when the sheriff dies, something done in the 1800s puts someone in charge bypassing the election? The premise of this show is literally the Wild West meets the unincorporated streets of LA while navigating politics? This is a bad idea. It looks like a mid-season replacement and I hope it only has a small order.
