TV Gord Reviews Black-ish

It sometimes can be frustrating to review a series based solely on the pilot.  That’s what I found while watching Black-ish.  The first episode tries a little too hard to set up the basic premise for the series, which revolves around the frustration of an African-American father who is raising his children in a predominantly white community while trying to instill the cultural values with which he was raise ...

TV Gord Reviews The Odd Couple

I had low expectations for this revival of The Odd Couple, and as I sat down to watch the pilot, I was in for an unexpectedly pleasant surprise.  First, I’ll outline my misgivings, and then I’ll explain why I love this new version.  ...

TV Gord Reviews About A Boy

About A Boy has a pretty impressive pedigree for a half-hour comedy that’s just starting out.  First, it’s loosely based on Nick Hornby’s best-selling novel and the 2002 Hugh Grant film, which was nominated for Golden Globes, BAFTAs and an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.  Second, it is tied to another NBC show (not exactly a hit, but a critical darling), Parenthood.  What gives this series a fighting cha ...

TV Gord Reviews The Millers

There’s a perception being bandied about in the entertainment news stories about this new Will Arnett sitcom that he hasn’t had a successful series because he typically plays smarmy characters (Gob Bluth in Arrested Development, the husband on Up All Night, even his recurring role on 30 Rock).  Regardless of whether that’s true, there is a concerted effort on this new series to tone down his antics.  You mi ...

TV Gord Reviews Super Fun Night

Rebel Wilson is funny.  She has shown that in the movie Bridesmaids and on various talk show and awards show appearances.  I went into the pilot of her new series, Super Fun Night, rooting for her and for the show.  Unfortunately, the show itself just doesn’t live up to the reputation Wilson has built for herself.  ...

TV Gord Reviews Betrayal

Betrayal is a good companion show for ABC’s Revenge, which precedes it, because they both tackle their titles in a few different ways.  Betrayal—at first glance—is about two people who are married to others, but who are drawn to each other by an undeniable attraction.  It’s a dicey topic to handle, especially since neither of the married couples are particularly troubled, so the affair is all about being at ...

TV Gord Reviews Lucky 7

Now, here’s an example of a show that I expected not to like that turned out to be a pleasant surprise.  The premise of a show about a group of co-workers who win the lottery sounds boring and predictable.  While there are some predictable situations, there’s a freshness to the story that took me by surprise.  By the end of the first episode, I wanted to visit with these characters again, which is the best ...

TV Gord reviews Mom

Anna Faris gets off on the wrong foot (or, rather, the writers do) when her character, Christy, cries and sniffles for the first three minutes of the show.  It’s supposed to be funny, but it’s more annoying (especially because it has been featured in promos for the show, so we’ve seen it over and over again).  The second annoying thing about this series is the laugh track.  The “audience” (or, rather, the b ...
