Pilot Review: Manhattan Love Story

Of the four new half hour shows I have tried on this autumn this is my third favorite. It is pretty far behind Selfie and A to Z but miles ahead of Mulaney in that I will still be watching it.

The first thing I noticed is that the lead male looks short. I know, I know, I’m a heightist. But I own that flaw. And granted, the lead female is a tall model in control of her angles making momma Tyra proud. I like him as a character though.

The mortician from Psych found work pretty quickly and I’m happy to see him. The rest of the supporting cast is somewhat lackluster. They need to begin to become necessary as individuals and not just as a blob plot device machine if I am going to stay invested in this show.

Give it a chance. The pacing is nice. And since the main couple is already together it might not be too long of a commitment.


Episode Review: Bachelor in Paradise, Week 6

Don’t skip to the last chapter in this book! Catch up on episodes 1, 2, 3, 4.1, 4.2, and 5. We start with 6 couples (In order of most real seeming and least real seeming)

  • Marcus and Lacy whom I will be referring to as Macy
  • Sarah and Robert
  • Michelle and Cody
  • Zack and Jackie
  • AshLee and Graham
  • Christy and Tasos

They split up by gender and start discussing things and Michelle decides that Graham needs to dump AshLee. Michelle runs off to tell him as much and AshLee thinks she is going to talk to him about Cody because her best friend couldn’t possibly have any issues with the perfect couple in the house. Delusional, crazy chick. Continue reading
