REVIEW: Prime Suspect – (NBC – Thursday, 10:00 p.m.)

Regular readers of The ‘Tastic know that we have a long list of types of shows that we simply hate and ranking high on that list is the police procedural . They are all the same (which is why they’re referred to as procedurals… duh) and it’s incredibly rare that any of them really stand out from one another. And then there’s NBC’s Prime Suspect which is really one of the best procedurals we’ve seen in years. Continue reading

REVIEW: Pan Am – ABC (Sunday, 10:00 p.m.)

Passion, jealousy and espionage… They do it all – and they do it at 30,000 feet. The style of the 1960s, the energy and excitement of the Jet Age and a drama full of sexy entanglements deliciously mesh in this … Continue reading

REVIEW: Last Man Standing – ABC (Tuesday, 8:00 p.m.)

Last Man Standing literally is a complete redo of Home Improvement and even the wife (played by nancy Travis) is the exact same character as Jill Taylor (Patricia Richardson) fromhome Improvement. And truthfully, as much as you’d think we’d have a problem with this lack of originality, we don’t. Continue reading

REVIEW: Suburgatory – ABC (Wednesday, 8:30 p.m.)

There are some shows that we know are going to be a complete piece of $#*!-My-Dad-Says before ever seeing one episode, such as Whitney, for example, and then there are some shows that we know are going to be a complete piece of $#*!-My-Dad-Says before ever seeing one episode but then they pleasantly surprise the complete $#*!-My-Dad-Says out of us by turning out to be actually very funny. Suburgatory would be the latter and so far is the best new comedy we’ve seen this year. Continue reading

REVIEW: Terra Nova – FOX (Monday, 8:00 p.m.)

Regular readers of the blog know that as much as we like the concept of Terra Nova, we have been very skeptical about whether or not it would be able to find an audience on a prime-time network (especially FOX) to justify the largest budget in television history, because quite frankly, prime-time audiences don’t watch serialized science fiction for the most part. And, yes, despite what writer/exec. producer Brannon Braga claims, Terra Nova is indeed a science fiction show. Continue reading
