SHOWBUZZDAILY Season Premiere Review: “Younger”

Posted June 29, 2017 by Mitch Salem

  YOUNGER:  Wednesday 10PM on TV Land TV Land’s flagship original series YOUNGER began to shake itself up at the end of Season 3, and the Season 4 premiere fruitfully continued that process.  Stories about Big Secrets, whether they’re being kept by superheroes or 40-year old publishing employees pretending to be in their 20s, reach […]

SHOWBUZZDAILY Season Premiere Review: “Broadchurch”

Posted June 29, 2017 by Mitch Salem

  BROADCHURCH – Wednesday 10PM on BBCAmerica One of the first things shown in the Season 3 premiere of BROADCHURCH is a looming close-up of a tear rolling down a crime victim’s face, so we know little has changed in that perpetually brooding Dorset town.  However, while Season 2 of Chris Chubnall’s series was a direct […]

SHOWBUZZDAILY Season Premiere Review: “Preacher”

Posted June 27, 2017 by Mitch Salem

  PREACHER:  Monday 9PM on AMC Think of PREACHER as American Gods without the aspirations to greatness.  Both shows detail the gory interactions between (more or less) ordinary humans and supernatural beings; both tackle religion as an integral part of their pulp action; both feature jet-black humor.  Under Bryan Fuller’s supervision, though, Gods is painterly […]

SHOWBUZZDAILY Season Premiere Review: “Power”

Posted June 25, 2017 by Mitch Salem

  POWER:  Sunday 9PM on Starz American Gods and Outlander may lean more to the Prestige end of Peak TV, but Starz’s only true original hit is the gangster soap POWER, which brought the network to new ratings heights when it moved to Sundays last season.  Tonight’s Season 4 premiere, written by series creator Courtney […]

SHOWBUZZDAILY Series Premiere Review: “The Mist”

Posted June 23, 2017 by Mitch Salem

  THE MIST:  Thursday 10PM on Spike – Change the Channel THE MIST is far from the most imaginative or robust of Stephen King’s works.  King has rarely been accused of too much concision, but he was only able to wring out enough material from this premise for a novella; the title conveys just about […]

  BLOOD DRIVE:  Wednesday 10PM on Syfy – If Nothing Else Is On… Syfy is in the midst of a rebranding, the focal point of which seems to be a new font for its logo.  Creatively, if the premiere of BLOOD DRIVE is to be taken as a guide, the network intends its model to […]

SHOWBUZZDAILY Series Premiere Review: “Claws”

Posted June 12, 2017 by Mitch Salem

  CLAWS:  Sunday 9PM on TNT – If Nothing Else Is On… There’s a reason that CLAWS,  TNT’s latest foray into original programming, feels like the offspring of a multi-camera sitcom, a paycable hour and Orange Is the New Black.  The project, created by Eliot Laurence, was originally developed as a HBO half-hour, and then taken […]

SHOWBUZZDAILY Season Premiere Review: “Orphan Black”

Posted June 11, 2017 by Mitch Salem

  ORPHAN BLACK:  Saturday 10PM on BBCAmerica A somewhat meta line of dialogue about “consolidation” is a sign that ORPHAN BLACK has commenced its final (and 5th) season.  Series creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett (Manson is credited as writer of the season premiere, Fawcett as director) have started to move their pieces toward the […]
