The Busch Family Brewed (MTV) Rated TV-14

The next generation of the Busch Family Brewing company is ready to take over. Starring Billy Busch Jr., Billy Busch Sr., and Abbey Busch.

They really need to figure out what this reality show is about. Is it about the hard partying of the children, the mother who’s being a helicopter mom, or is it really about the children taking over the family business? It mostly shows the kids partying and drinking all the time, with little to no responsibility. This is to be expected from a family that makes beer. I would have liked to see that they were responsible adults rather than a partying family. They say they are a hard-working family that plays hard, but we don’t see any hard work. This is not worth the watch.

Blindspot (NBC) Rated TV-14

A Jane Doe is found in New York city, nude, and with a body full of tattoos. Starring Sullivan Stapleton, Jaimie Alexander, and Rob Brown.

Surprisingly, I was not overly impressed with this series. I thought the premise wasn’t as thrilling as promised, and I struggled to identify with the characters. It was nice to see Alexander, but I always feel that she chooses different roles than how we see her. I’ve enjoyed her acting, but I’m not sure I enjoy her as this character. I’m not even sure where this show would lead. It could go down the mystery route or the “let’s just fight crime” route. The show really can’t make up its mind. It’s a mediocre show that I give a pass to, making it worth a watch.

The Funny Dance Show (E!) Rated NR

Celebrity comics compete in a dance competition for the charity of their choice. Starring Heidi Heaslet, Justine Marino, and Carly Jibson. 

This show is supposed to be a funny comic take on dance competition reality shows. To do that, they tend to be very raunchy in their jokes and dancing. So, obviously, I did not find it humorous. Although, I do agree that the performances were amazing in both dance and comic timing. The personalities were well-matched, and they all had great chemistry. I think it would have been funnier if their comedy hadn’t been so raunchy. That said, I have to say this isn’t worth a watch.

Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris (NBC) Rated TV-PG

Neil Patrick Harris hosts a variety show  based on the British show Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. Starring Neil Patrick Harris, Nicole Scherzinger, and Nathaniel Motulsky.

Neil Patrick Harris knows how to entertain. It was also fun to see all the guest stars. There is a variety of different segments: games, hidden cameras, and audience play alongs. The two segments I enjoyed the most were Sing Along Live and Get Lucky. The show seems like it’s live, but I highly doubt it. I think this was a great twenty-first-century variety show. Neil knows how to keep the energy up and come up with more shticks. It’s worth a watch.

Queen & Slim (2019) Rated R

A couple’s first date takes a turn for the worst when they are stopped by police.  Starring Daniel Kaluuya, Jodie Turner-Smith, and Bokeem Woodbine.

This is the worst film. We have a couple that escalates the traffic, causing the police to act with force. It turns bad. Then you have the fictional storyline of how the police would react in each situation. This film makes me so mad at the couple because they just kept making matters worse rather than turning themselves in and putting an end to all the problems. It’s an unrealistic look and makes people think they can be immortal. They aren’t heroes. This film is not worth a watch.

Benders (IFC) Rated TV-MA

Friends bond over their obsession with the local hockey team. Starring Andrew Schulz, Lindsey Broad, and Chris DiStefano.

This show was just stupid. There is nothing interesting about it, and you would think hockey and men drinking would have some storylines. Alas, the show has neither. The show isn’t funny. The casting is fine, but the writing really needs work to bring the characters to life. So far, they are annoying or one dimensional. The show as a whole isn’t very interesting. I could be better, but it’s not very memorable. It’s not worth a watch.

Puppy Dog Pals (DisneyJr.) Rated TV-Y

Two puppy brothers have appetites that take them on adventures. Starring Issac Ryan Brown, Sam Lavagnino, and Harland Williams.

This is a show made and geared for kids. It’s a couple of cute dogs that go on adventures over the world to try and help those around. The series teaches kids about geography, animals, and friendship. What I found most annoying about the show is the unrealistic storyline. Bob, the human in the show, is also bothersome with his constant frustration when things don’t go his way. I know that this show is cute and enjoyable for kids, but I wish it didn’t have all the negative humans while the dogs are so perfect. It’s not worth a watch.

Malcolm & Eddie (UPN) Rated TV-PG

Malcolm is a sensible twenty-something who shares an apartment and business with a charming fast talker named Eddie, who always has a scheme. Starring Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Eddie Griffin, and Karen Malina White. 

This is a typical sitcom; it has the straight man against the quirky guy who always means well but gets in trouble anyway. Griffin is the perfect quirky guy. Warner is the straight guy. It’s the perfect duo. The show is just a typical sitcom. There’s nothing too interesting or entertaining. There’s nothing special about the show but the laughs. It’s a fun watch but not really worth a watch.
