I just watched the first two episodes of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath and it was f*cking riveting each episode. By the end of Episode 1, it will have you in tears. So heartbreaking to see families being torn apart just because of their blind devotion to what amounts to nothing more than a Ponzi scheme. You guys know that this thing that they call a "religion" fascinates me because of how easily people are manipulated and I'm just curious to find out more about their mindset and why they chose to got down this path when the evidence was clearly staring them in the face that it's a cult.  Her tell-all book was just the start. Now her new series taps into former high-ranking members that tell their own personal stories. I'm definitely on board for what Season 1 will serve up. I highly recommend checking this out. The two episodes that have aired are put together extremely well.

Just checked out the first episode of Jon Glaser Loves Gear and I like it. The TV Spots with his "Geeeeeaaaar" tagline sucked me in. But when the episode started, I wasn't sure if I'd stick around. By the end of the episode, I was hooked. I'm definitely on board for this season. I get to binge watch most as I think there is only 1 episode left to air.

Binged-watched the first 4 episodes of Incorporated and I'm digging it so far. It's a cross between Minority Report in the Green Zone with his uses of the Tech that dominates that movie as well as Blade Runner in the Red Zone of town at night. During the day it reminds me of District 9 when time is spent in the shanty town. I learned of this shows existence when I heard that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck were the producers of the series. I have 2 more episodes to watch and then I'm all caught up with the airing schedule.

Just finished watching the remaining episodes for Good Behavior and this is without a doubt the best new show for 2016. This show is insanely good and insanely addicting. There are so many moving parts happening at once and yet it all feels incredibly organic in how everything meshes up. So many great characters. Even the lesser (smaller roles) turned out to be bonuses for me. Love love love the series. Can't wait for Season 2. Also, please please please release the soundtrack for Season 1. So many amazing songs that I've never heard of before until now. I say about 95% of it was all new and one amazing cover version of Fleetwood Mac's "Go Your Own Way". I want this on CD and / or Vinyl right f*cking now.

So, I just watched the premiere for Season 2 for Colony and THIS is the episode they should have started with last season. THIS is how you engage and get viewers into your series. It's such a shame that the show runner chose to run with what we got last season. My biggest gripe for Season 1 was that the entire season was wrapped and kept in a mystery.We are so behind the 8 Ball that I was constantly fighting to find something to hold on to. Now fast forward to tonight, we have an episode still in the dark, but we are seeing everything unfold on Day 1. We are right along for the ride with the characters because they are in the dark as well. Even footing. I wasn't looking forward to giving the series another chance, but with this episode, I'm back on board for the time being.

I checked out APB. It was alright. Nothing memorable about it. They clearly are following the blueprint of RoboCop, minus RoboCop. Although the lead female actress is named Murphy and that had to be intentional. Not sure if I will stick around for the series though. It doesn't scream "must-see-TV" for me. I may just let it build up a backlog of episodes and come back to it later if nothing else is on.

Ok then... I just saw an ad for it the other week... thought, hmmmm, looks interesting. Not enough effort to bookmark it. Looks like you saved me some time.

So, I just watched the Pilot for Training Day and my concerns were verified. I just couldn't see how this would work as a series and still be connected to the film of the same name. Bill Paxton is stepping into the role that Denzel Washington owned and therein lies the problem with the series. Sure, it's just one episode, but Paxton is a likable guy and the way he is written in the series just further complicates the character. He never comes off threatening like in the movie with some serious f*cked up sh*t. In the Pilot, he just comes across as more mild-mannered, but willing to do what needs to get the job done. But at no time does he feel like he is plotting something sinister or that he would set up his new partner. The twist at the end is that his partner will be "training" Paxton. So, it just feels very confusing at the moment. Since I'm a huge fan of Paxton, I will stick around for the time being and see how things shake out. But honestly, I don't see this surviving based just on the first episode.

I just checked out the first episode of Powerless. I knew that this was a Superhero series, but I had no idea that it was a DC Comics property or that it was set in the world of the biggest names in Comics. The show is anchored in the city adjacent to Gotham City with Van Wayne running Wayne Security. A lot of references to Batman, Joker, Superman, etc....So, they aren't shy about going there. I doubt we will ever see the AAA Characters on the show any time soon,,,,,if ever. The show isn't perfect. It's not a dark and brooding series either. It's a straight up comedy. In spite of some flaws, the fact that they have Alan Tudyk playing Van will keep me around for the foreseeable future.
