Pick of the Week
Scrubs Channel: ABC Time: 9/8c Starring: Zach Braff, Donald Faison, John C. McGinley, Eliza Coupe, Kerry Bishe, Dave Franco Premieres: Tuesday, December 1 Trailer
Synopsis: The series ended last season and then it was renewed. It will be back, but different. J.D. is only set to be around for six episodes while he fades out and the show focuses more on Turk and Cox running a teaching hospital.
My Take: I really think they should have changed the name since it seems like it’ll be a different show, but I like the cast and creator Bill Lawrence, so I’ll give it a shot.
Who thought doing a reboot of Star Trek would be such a good idea? I thought it’d might good when J.J. Abrams was attached so I’m glad it has turned out so awesome. I think the stoner comedy Next Day Air was a wasted opportunity of a good comedy. The limited releases involve a family mystery, closeted gay Republicans, Mexican soccer-playing brothers, an alcoholic kidnapper and a biopic about Salvador Dali.
Next Day Air
Star Trek Directed: J.J. Abrams Starring: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg Trailer
Synopsis: How the original crew of the Star Trek got together.
My Take: I love J.J. Abrams, Zachary Quinto looks so much like Spock, Chris Pine is very good looking and I find Simon Pegg hilarious. I want to see it.
RT Score: 96% RT Consensus:Star Trek reignites a classic franchise with action, humor, a strong story, and brilliant visuals, and will please traditional Trekkies and new fans alike.
January used to be a dead month for new shows. It used to just be reruns, but now filled with midseason replacements and reality shows.
Season Finales: Lipstick Jungle, Stargate Atlantis, Sanctuary, Crash
Pick of the Week
Scrubs Channel: ABC Time: 9/8c Starring: Zach Braff, Donald Faison, Judy Reyes, Sarah Chalke, Ken Jenkins, John C. McGinley, Neil Flynn Premieres: Tuesday, January 6 Trailer
Synopsis: The show moves to ABC where it gets to finish out its final season properly. In the final season, J.D. and Elliot might get back together again, Dr. Kelso has retired as the Chief of Medicine, but he still hangs around since he gets free muffins for life from the coffee shop, and Courtney Cox guest stars for a few episodes as the new Chief of Medicine.
My Take: The show is hilarious and it was given the shaft at NBC so I’m glad it gets to finish off its final season properly.
