Single Parents – The Beast – Review: The Gang Pursues Their Passions

This week, the gang pursues their passions, Angie with her love of death metal music and desire to learn guitar, and Will with his urgency to rediscover what made him love weather and chasing storms. Plus Douglas gets another chance with Big Red and Poppy tries to find love with a musician!

This week’s episode was written by Lamar Woods and directed by Josh Greenbaum.

This is a great episode for fans of Angie and Will, both if you ship them romantically or just as friends. Leighton and Taran get to have so much fun and in turn, I had just as much fun watching them.

Single Parents – They Call Me DOCTOR Biscuits! – Review: Hyper-Banquetitis-Phrenia

WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS.

Apologies for not getting a review up last week, I was out of town and by the time everything settled down a new episode was airing so I figured I’d just miss a week and jump back in fresh! Though trust me I definitely enjoyed seeing Hannah Simone pop in and I’m hoping she’ll be sticking around for a little while.

Also I definitely squealed last week when we got that admission from Douglas about his crush on Poppy! How cute.

Review: Happy Together – Pilot

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

The 2018 Fall TV season is officially underway and two more new CBS sitcoms hit the airwaves tonight. Happy Together being the latter of the two.

A new sitcom is almost a rarity on a network stuffed with reboots and revivals, and while maybe not wholly original in the sense that we’ve certainly seen this premise before, I found it a lively debut and a breath of fresh air as far as CBS sitcoms go.

Review: Single Parents – Pilot

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Single Parents has been on my horizon ever since I discovered Elizabeth Meriwether would be at the helm. I was a big fan of New Girl and I’ve missed it since it wrapped its seven season run this past May, but based on this pilot, I’d say Single Parents is the perfect remedy. Not to mention the fact the show was co-created by J.J. Philbin who worked on another favorite of mine, The OC.

Advance Preview: Happy Together

It’s that time of year again folks! Fall TV. All the networks are flexing their latest new series, and we’re in that great, sometimes awkward, period of trying on pilots to see which ones fit.

CBS has a bundle of new sitcoms launching this fall. I’ve sampled all of them and Happy Together is one of the stronger contenders in the bunch. It’s not a wholly original premise, we’ve seen this type of found family, set-up before (and I’ll admit that is one of my favorite television tropes so maybe I’m biased), but I find that it induces a nostalgic factor that makes this show something akin to comfort food. I felt warm and fuzzy watching and I genuinely enjoyed myself. It doesn’t hurt that I’ve nursed a soft spot for Amber Stevens West since her Greek days either.
