Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 10 Review: Beat the Press

Media attacks were on Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 10. That's what was on the menu. Once again, a preachy episode and it's getting old. Frank's attack was a ridiculous storyline. Liking the United States to the level of dangerous and violent third world nations around the world is taking their message way too far. People in politics have been disagreeing since the beginning of politics. Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of Movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video. WATCH ANYWHERE. CANCEL ANYTIME! People will disagree about politics until the end of politics, which is never. That is nothing new. No big deal, I'm just milking this for the jello and sponge baths. Frank Permalink: No big deal, I'm just milking this for the jello and sponge baths. Added: November 29, 2018 There isn't a band of Amazonian burley women taking swings at reporters. Come on. What was the point of this episode? What was the bottom line? I suppose they were trying to convey that the media isn't trusted and that Trump followers are meatheaded Neanderthals with only two brain cells to rub together. And one of them is on vacation. I wouldn't be surprised if Murphy Brown lost a lot of viewers after this episode and I have to wonder what the endgame was in that strategy? Avery: This coming from a woman with a basement full of TV Guides? Murphy: I haven't finished all the crosswords yet. Permalink: I haven't finished all the crosswords yet. Added: November 29, 2018 If they only want viewers who agree with their political point of view, then I think they may get their wish. And before you say their fanbase is only from the Democratic party, you're wrong. People on both sides of the political fence enjoy Murphy Brown. She's funny, damn it! She doesn't NEED heavy as syrup political laden messages in her program. As I said from Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 1, if they pepper the political jabs throughout and sandwich it in a heaping helping of delicious comedy, people will eat it up and come back for more. And for a while there they were toeing the line. Related: Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 9 Review: Thanksgiving and Taking Now, with these last two episodes, they're losing it, and the ratings are going to show it. Don't get me wrong. I love Frank and to think of him being attacked for merely doing his job is upsetting, but that's not what's happening out there. Take my blessing, leave the cannoli. Frank Permalink: Take my blessing, leave the cannoli. Added: November 29, 2018 The way they painted it, the President himself put a hit on Frank, and that's just a bunch of bunk. Pure and simple. The Republican Party isn't a bunch of mindless goons anymore than the Democratic Party is a bunch of holier than thou snobs who think they're better than everyone else. It's not only insulting to pretend otherwise, but it&..

Supernatural Season 14 Episode 7 Review: Unhuman Nature

You've come a long way, Baby! Sam took the words right out of my head on Supernatural Season 14 Episode 7 when he verbalized how Jack's sickness was affecting Dean. When Jack was born, Dean wasn't keen on keeping Lucifer's son around and fought Sam tooth and nail about it. He wanted him dead. Sam wanted to give him a chance. It's taken time, but Dean has definitely warmed up to the kid in a much bigger way than we could have ever expected. Letting Jack drive Baby was a huge moment -- and a much better option for Jack than taking off to Tahiti by himself. Jack has always looked up to Dean. From the very beginning, he took to Dean more than he did Sam. And it wasn't just because he wanted to change Dean's mind about him. It could be that he thought Dean was the cooler brother and wanted to be like him, but sometimes people just take to one person over another, and Dean was his guy. Related: Get True Crime Files by ID via Prime Video Channels for Over 1,000 Real-life Mystery & Suspense Shows! It annoyed Dean, but he realized that Jack was trying really hard to not be like his father. Jack was genuine about it. He wasn't trying to fight some evil inside him. He wanted to be a good person and prove that the apple could fall very far from the tree. Jack has become like a brother to Dean so watching Jack basically fight for his life wasn't something Dean wanted to witness. Dean might not be quick to admit it, but Jack is a lot like him. He figures things out on his own, and he doesn't want to be a burden to anyone. He also came to the conclusion that if he didn't have a lot of time to live, he wanted to at least live which is why he came up with the Tahiti idea. Dean wasn't going to let Jack go anywhere, but he also understood how Jack felt which is why Dean took him out for the greatest day of his life. I'm getting that life isn't all about these big amazing moments. It's time together that matters. Jack Permalink: I'm getting that life isn't all about these big amazing moments. It's time together that... Added: November 29, 2018 And while Jack got his fill of a fast car and fast food, he also turned the tables on Dean by choosing to go fishing instead of a night of boozing and women. Dean learned something from Jack at that creek -- it's not where you are that makes you happy but who you're with that makes all the difference. Words of wisdom. I got the feeling that the shaman knew that Gabriel's grace wasn't going to heal Jack. The guy seemed shady from the start, but desperate times call for desperate measures and the gang was all out of ideas. The shaman had ulterior motives for wanting Jack to ingest Gabriel's grace. There's something bigger going on here, and I'm wondering if it has something to do with Lucifer rising. Maybe the shaman can see the future. He may be a healer, but..

Daredevil Canceled After Three Seasons at Netflix

Daredevil will not return for a fourth season at Netflix. The streaming giant has confirmed the hit Marvel drama series has been canceled after three seasons. "Marvel’s Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix. We are tremendously proud of the show’s last and final season and although it’s painful for the fans, we feel it best to close this chapter on a high note," Netflix said in a statement. "We’re thankful to our partners at Marvel, showrunner Erik Oleson, the show’s writers, stellar crew and incredible cast including Charlie Cox as Daredevil himself, and we’re grateful to the fans who have supported the show over the years. Related: Iron Fist Canceled at Netflix "While the series on Netflix has ended, the three existing seasons will remain on the service for years to come, while the Daredevil character will live on in future projects for Marvel." The cancellation comes just weeks after both Iron Fist and Luke Cage were canceled following their second seasons. Given that the two series were not as popular as Daredevil, the original entry into Netflix's Marvel Universe was widely expected to snag a fourth season renewal. The move leaves just Jessica Jones and The Punisher as the shows left in the Netflix-Marvel franchise. It's certainly a worrying trend to cut shows off too soon, and it appears that there are issues between Marvel and Netflix as negotiations seem to be falling apart left, right, and center Production on Jessica Jones Season 3 is currently underway, while The Punisher Season 2 has already completed production, but there's now a good chance these will serve as the final seasons of both series if the relationship between Marvel and Netflix continues to deteriorate. There's no word yet on whether any of the canceled Marvel dramas could pop back up down the line via Disney's new streaming service, Disney+, which is slated to launch during 2019.

Preacher Renewed for Season 4 at AMC

Preacher fans can breathe a huge sigh of relief. AMC confirmed Thursday afternoon the hit drama will return to the network for a fourth season, and there's a big twist accompanying the news: Production on the series is moving down under. By that, we mean the cast and crew are headed to Australia. “’Preacher’ is a show unlike any other on television,” said David Madden, president of programming of entertainment networks for AMC Networks. “A passionate base of fans found their way to Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy and have followed along with their adventures, at times indescribable adventures, for three seasons." Related: The Walking Dead: How Is It Holding Up Without Andrew Lincoln? "We are thankful to our partners at Sony and to Seth, Evan and Sam for everything they have brought to this series, which we are pleased to renew for a fourth season." "Like the superfans of Preacher, we can’t wait to see where this journey leads next.” Fans have been waiting for word on the show's fate ever since Preacher Season 3 concluded in August. That said, the show turned in diminished ratings with its most recent season. It dipped almost 40 percent to a 0.25 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. That's a considerable drop, and likely contributed to the uneasy nights fans faced as they awaited word on the fate of the show. Related: GCB Reboot in the Works at The CW Also not helping matters: Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg left Sony TV behind, and are currently looking for a new pact elsewhere. Preacher follows Jesse Custer, a preacher who finds himself possessed by a demonic force and forced to take part in the ultimate battle of good vs. evil. It stars Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, and Ruth Negga. AMC has yet to make a decision about the future of Humans which wrapped in the summer. Humans Season 3 averaged just a 0.08 rating in the demo. However, it is a co-production with Channel 4. Its future will likely hinge on whether the U.K. broadcast wants to go ahead with future installments. Given the long time that has passed, it is likely dead, but time will tell. What are your thoughts on this news? Hit the comments below.

Tell Me a Story Season 1 Episode 5 Review: Madness

We really need to find out where they're training hotel owners and substitute teachers these days. We've already realized that Jordan might go to surprising places after being pushed to his limit, but on Tell Me a Story Season 1 Episode 5 Nick trumped him. Something tells me he isn't your ordinary substitute teacher. How many big, bad wolves are we going to encounter on this show, anyway? Let's talk about The Three Little Pigs first. Jordan is cracking. No, that's wrong. By the time you read this, he will have already cracked. All "ing" was done while we watched, and by the time "Madness" was over, so was his chance at recovery. Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of Movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video What a shame, too. Jordan was fighting himself so hard for clarity on whether or not he should go through with is plan to turn into a violent man that he conjured Beth after his beatdown from Eddie. And poor Eddie! Eddie is a rarity on television. We don't often get to see the side of a bad guy who truly regrets his actions. But with each dirty act Eddie makes, he loathes himself more. Eddie: I don't want anyone else to die! No one was supposed to die! I can't take this shit anymore, Mitch. Mitch: We're gonna be fine. Permalink: We're gonna be fine. Added: November 29, 2018 That's what makes The Three Little Pigs saga my favorite of the three. If there wasn't a genuine push and pull between the antagonists, it wouldn't be nearly as intense. But knowing how deeply both Jordan and Eddie are affected by their actions against one another makes all the difference. Mitch didn't want to believe things were as dire as they seemed until he was experiencing them himself. It took Jordan appearing at his home and an actual bloody (ringing) pig's head breaking through Eddie's window to get his attention. Just how unreliable has Eddie been in the past that Mitch wasn't willing to give him the benefit of the doubt? Let's assume the jewelry heist was Eddie's first major crime. It could have driven him to paranoia. But they did kill someone, and Eddie was already taken in by the police so that paranoia was warranted either way. Jordan becoming some kind of Spiderman jumping onto rooves with what appeared to be an easily secured pig's head and burner phone is crazy pants, though. As far as we know, he was the sedate side of a normal couple who runs a hotel until just a few days ago. WTH is happening?? Beth appearing as the angel on his shoulder trying to persuade him to let the authorities handle things was heartbreaking. Can you imagine wanting to stifle your actions so badly that your internal struggles invented the hallucination of the person for whom you were acting just to stop you?

Marvel’s Runaways Season 2 Trailer: A Classic Character Debuts!

The teenagers of Marvel's Runaways are on the run, and it looks like the Hulu series is about to give us the high-octane drama we were expecting from Marvel's Runaways Season 1. We hate to say it, but the first season was filled with meandering plots, but the official trailer for Marvel's Runaways Season 2 makes it clear that the show is looking to rectify that issue. With the youngsters on the run from their parents as they try to get to grips with their powers, they have to learn to fend for themselves, and that involves some crazy fight scenes. The parents are the enemy in this narrative, and the teenagers have to stick together if they want to take down the villainous company that is PRIDE once and for all. Related: Runaways, Future Man Renewed at Hulu There's even a vampire thrown in for good measure because the powers that be seem to think the bloodsucking creatures are as relevant as they were a few years back. Jan Luis Castellanos is joining the cast as Topher aka the vampire. The positive about this is that Topher was a character in the comics on which the series is based on. Hulu is taking a different approach with its rollout plan for the new episodes. Instead of airing weekly, the streamer will launch all 13 episodes on December 21. That means fans will be in for a holiday binge right around the holidays. In addition, there's even a colorful that touts the teenagers holding the power. Yeah, it's doubtful they will be able to hold that for long with their parents trying to wipe them out. Watch the full trailer below and hit the comments with your thoughts on it.

TV Ratings Report: A Million Little Things Returns Up

ABC's attempt at a TV show that hits viewers right in the feels might be starting to pay off. A Million Little Things returned from a mini hiatus and built to a 0.8 rating in the demo (3.5 million total viewers). While the live numbers are still soft, the show has leveled off, and packs a punch with delayed viewing. If it can stay steady throughout the rest of the season, it has a good chance at landing a second season. Elsewhere on ABC, The Goldbergs (5 million/1.2 rating), American Housewife (4.4 million/1.0 rating), Single Parents (3.4 million/0.9 rating), and Modern Family (4.8 million/1.3 rating) were all down. Riverdale (1.3 million/0.5 rating) inched up a tenth at The CW, while All American (0.8 million/0.3 rating) was steady as a rock. A two-hour installment of Survivor (7.6 million/1.5 rating) was up two tenths from last week's pre-Thanksgiving numbers. Empire (5.1 million/0.5 rating) returned up a tenth, while Star (3.7 million/1.1 rating) was steady. 86th Annual Christmas in Rockefeller (8.4 million/1.3 rating) turned in solid ratings for NBC, while A Legendary Christmas (4.4 million/0.8 rating) matched AMLT in the demo.

Legacies Sneak Peek: Can Landon Trust Hope?

Hope Mikaelson has her work cut out for her on Legacies Season 1 Episode 5. Alaric Saltzman's prized student steps up to the challenge of helping Landon find out more about what he is on Thursday's new episode of the hit drama series. Fresh off their argument on Legacies Season 1 Episode 4, Langdon refuses to allow Hope to be the one to administer the tests. If you watch Legacies online, you know that Hope hasn't been the most welcoming person to Landon ever since he stole the dagger from the school. Hey, the stolen dagger is what kickstarted all of the random creatures showing up in Mystic Falls, so it makes sense that Hope would be a little pissed. Landon also has an ulterior motive here: He does not want to leave Rafael alone at the school, but Alaric has been open about the establishment not being a place for non-supernatural beings. If the tests Hope has up her sleeve prove Landon is a human, then he will be sent back to the streets to fend for himself. Despite Hope and Landon going back on forth about the best course of action, Hope admits that she only wants to help him get the answers to what's going on. The official promo already confirmed Landon accepts the help, and it's difficult to imagine the truth not coming out sooner or later. Have a look at the sneak peek below. Legacies continues Thursdays on The CW.

GCB Reboot in the Works at The CW

The CW is well and truly looking to the past for some new hits. The young-skewing network is developing a brand new series based on Good Christian Bitches, the best selling novel from Kim Gatlin which was used as the basis for the short-lived ABC series, GCB, according to Deadline. ABC's iteration of the series debuted as a midseason replacement in 2011 and focused on a former high school bully returning to Dallas following a huge scandal that made her go from riches to rags. It starred Leslie Bibb, Jennifer Aspen, Marisol Nichols, Miriam Shor, David James Elliott, Mark Deklin, Brad Beyer, Annie Potts, and Kristin Chenoweth. Related The 4400 in the Works at The CW The second take on Good Christian Bitches will focus on the people who frequent Flock, a church in Austin where “prayers and worship music cover up a multitude of sins and secrets.” ABC's take on the series stirred up controversy before it even aired with many claiming that it mocked Christians, prompting the show's name to be changed from Good Christian Bitches to Good Christian Belles to simply GCB. Deadline reports that Darren Star and Andrew Kaplan have been looking for the best destination to bring the show back ever since it went off the air. Related: Roswell Reboot Ordered at The CW Given how much time has passed, and the fact much of the cast have moved on, this might be a case in which a reboot is actually necessary. It's not like the original series got much time to cover all of the stories that should have been covered. GCB joins The LA Complex and The 4400 has reboots that are in development at the network for the 2019-2020 TV season. Reboots and revivals are becoming the norm nowadays as networks seek to premiere projects that could have built-in fanbases. The CW already has Dynasty and Charmed on its schedule as reboots, while Roswell, New Mexico will join in the fun when it launches in January. Okay, GCB Fanatics! What are your thoughts on this news?
