While rarely laugh-out-loud funny, Ghosts is actually pretty entertaining and clever. Like those colorful characters of sitcom pasts, this new series is full of personality and really fun to watch.
The new show is shiny featuring those incredible camera shots and the familiar “Who Are You” theme song. The show features characters from the past working alongside new characters working in a new and improved lab.
Boasting of being founded by serial entrepreneurs and pop-culture obsessives who have led or built for leading brands, RecSpot promises to make sharing and receiving recommendations easy, convenient and fun.
While the hour of “La Brea” plays out with a few exciting scenes, there’s no real tension. One character says, “Something strange is going on.” You’re just now realizing this? You know that the people in jeopardy are going to be okay. It’s actually quite boring.
Sure, “The Big Leap” is goofy at times (like dancing in the bowling alley), but the script is full of likeable characters and with it competing with “Dancing with the Stars” timeslot, it makes a good excuse to take a breather from the real dancing competition show this season.
Clearly, NBC is banking on it’s new high-concept drama, “Ordinary Joe”, to be the network’s next This is Us success story. Like “This is Us”, “Joe” has a unique storytelling device but I’m not sure that it is on par with the former show.
Frogger’s hosts are Damon Wayans, Jr. and Kyle Brandt who seem capable enough, but they don’t speak with any authority at all, their commentary is flat and frankly, they aren’t funny. They appear as if they just stumbled onto the set and are pretending to commentate the proceedings instead of actually doing the job.
While a dream come true for some families, it can be a perceived nightmare for others. Dr. Phil McGraw is now making house calls courtesy of CBS. House Calls with Dr. Phil, the one-hour primetime series which debuted earlier this week, takes what you know and love about the good doctor and places him in a home setting or an extended time.
One of my complaints about some modern late night talk shows is that the “talk” parts have been reduced down to just mere minutes while the rest of the show is filled with goofy games or self-indulgent song numbers. Not so here. “Hart to Heart” is closer in style to Dick Cavett’s show than Jimmy Fallon’s, which is both good and bad.
