Why Aren’t You Watching Trophy Wife?


The best comedy of the fall is………. Trophy Wife. What? Trophy Wife, really? Yes, this is the best new comedy that no one is watching. I would put it up there as one of the top comedies on television right now.

Trophy Wife is a show about a newlywed couple, played by Malin Akerman (Rock of Ages, Wanderlust, Children’s Hospital) and Bradley Whitford (West Wing, Cabin In The Woods). The series delves into their daily lives dealing with his two ex-wives, Marcia Gay Harden (The Newsroom, Mystic River) and Michaela Watson (Saturday Night Live, Afternoon Delight, Wanderlust) and the three children from his previous marriages.

5 Shows To Watch This Fall


Fall première dates are coming up and there are too many things to watch. No worries. It was extremely difficult but I have narrowed it down to the 5 shows that you must watch.

1. Brooklyn Nine-Nine (FOX) Premieres Tuesday, September 17 @8:30/7:30c.

I have a thing for André Braugher (Men Of A Certain Age, Gideon’s Crossing). I think he’s absolutely wonderful. So when I saw that this show got picked up by Fox, I was excited. The show is a comedy about is about how members of a Brooklyn squad deal with a new very straight-laced and tightly wound police chief played by Braugher. The comedy for most of the show comes from the interplay between Braugher and the squad’s lead cop, played by Andy Samberg (Saturday Night Live), who just can’t seem to adjust. This show looks hilarious and I have read nothing but good things about it. Samberg had many great moments on SNL so he will bring the funny.  I just really want them to let Braugher be great. I need him to be on a show that people give a chance. Hopefully this one is it.

2. The Michael J Fox Show (NBC) Premieres Thursday, September 26 @9/8c.

Michael J. Fox hasn’t been the star of a show since he left Spin City in 2000 because of his Parkinson’s disease. He has done a lot of guest stints on different shows since then; my favorite being his arcs on The Good Wife. It’s nice that now he is returning to television full-time and in something that is really good at, comedy. The new show emulates the actor’s life a bit in that it is about a news anchor at the top of his game who decided to leave his job to spend more time with his family. After being at home for 5 years, his family is ready for him to leave the house and return to work. The cast also includes Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad) and Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Treme, Suits). I saw part of this pilot in one of my classes last semester and I really liked it so I can’t wait to see the finished product.

Trailers Galore


A ton of trailers for different movies and shows came out in the past few days. Here are some of the big ones.

Tom Cruise in the musical Rock of Ages

The movie has a whole hell of a lot of people in it from Mary J Blige, Julianne Hough, Alec Baldwin to Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti and Malin Akerman. Its just looks like a huge disaster and I’m not sure how this is going to pan out especially with Julianne Hough in the mix. She’s just such a bad actress. See for yourself.

Rock of Ages opens June 15, 2012.

True Blood Teaser Clip

The residents of Bon Temps will be returning this summer and in order to whet your appetites before the premiere, HBO sent out this teaser clip. It looks even crazier than last season’s and last season was nuts. Hopefully it be a great one since it’ll be Alan Ball’s last one as showrunner.

Season 5 of True Blood premieres June 2012 on HBO Continue reading Trailers Galore
