The Goldbergs is hands down my favorite new comedy of this current season. It's a warm hearted but still very funny look at a family in Philadelphia in the early to mid 1980's. The whole cast is a winner but standouts are Wendi Mclendon-Covey as the mother who loves her kids a little too much and the high strung middle son, Troy Gentile. I love this show.
I just started watching thi s show my the PBS Roku channel and I love it all ready. It's a British show about a young country gal who goes to work in a department store and all sorts of interpersonal dramas develop. We're treated to all the usual British class struggles, male/female struggles, and business antics. I'm looking forward to seeing how it all plays out.
The first two episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. kicked ass. I hope the rest of them live up to the promise of the first two. And Ming Na-Wen, hubba hubba to infinity and beyond.
Sleepy Hollow is bat shit crazy, in a good way. It's campy, over the top, and full of good old fashion gonzo storytelling. And it's got Nicole Beharie, what more could you want?
I really loved the second series of the British import The Syndicate. I enjoyed the first series too but it was a bit melancholy, this series has it's dramatic moments, lots of them in fact, but it ends on a happy positive note. It's on HuluPLUS.
We're finally getting around to watching Treme. We've blown through the first season and are into the second and we're liking it very much. It's what we've come to expect from HBO, it's compelling interesting well done drama. I love the locations and the music. And Kim Dickens and Lucia Micarelli, double hubba hubba.
