Tear-jerking commercials have been making me cry as the anticipation for the return of American Idol continues to build. If you don’t know what Idol is it’s quite possible that you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of decades! A really big recent milestone for the show was that two “idols” performed during the live broadcast of 91st Academy Awards! First, Adam Lambert along with the legendary band Queen opened the show with two numbers from the nominated film Bohemian Rhapsody. Adam currently tours with Queen and the film tells the story of the band and its late lead singer, the great Freddie Mercury! Also, Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson performed RBG film’s nominated song. I think it’s fair to say that American Idol is making stars.

The reboot, now airing on ABC (it originally aired on FOX) is beginning its second season with returning judges Lionel Ritchie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan, along with host Ryan Seacrest. I love this show! Not only did it discover Adam and Jennifer, but don’t forget just two of its other stars, multiple Grammy-Award winner Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson! What I find most endearing is the stories of hardship and what it took to get to the auditions that most contestants share upon meeting the judges. Yes, it’s all very dramatic and heartbreaking at times but also extremely addictive. You just can’t help but root for them!

Barry’s Back

Every one’s favorite hitman-turned-actor is back. Barry returns with a second season this month on HBO. The award-winning series follows former US Marine and Midwestern hitman, Barry (played by Bill Hader), who travels Los Angeles to perform a hit, but finds an odd home in the LA theatre arts scene.

The first season primarily focuses on Barry coming out of a runt in his life and finding some sort of sanctuary in the City of Dreams. He develops a crush with a fellow student, Sally (played by your next favorite starlet, Sarah Goldberg), and is able to fool acting coach Gene (the indescribable comedy icon Henry Winkler) into thinking he’s an actual actor. However, Barry soon discovers that he can’t leave his violent, criminal past, in the dark so quietly.

Barry was created by Hader and Alec Berg, who started as a writer on Seinfeld and is currently an executive producer on Silicon Valley, also on HBO. The series skyrocketed to critical acclaim and has been nominated for just about every television comedy award out there, winning two Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Hader and Winkler, respectively. There is no doubt that Barry season two will satisfy your crave for good old fashioned TV comedy.

Season 2 for “Barry” premieres March 31 on HBO.

GOOD GIRLS

Good Girls returns for Season 2 March 3rd on NBC (Starring Retta, Christina Hendricks, and Mae Whitman)

GOOD GIRLS

Three women. Best friends. Money issues. A really sick kid. A cheating husband. Combine all of these elements with great writing and great acting and you get Good Girls, the hour-long primetime series entering its second season this month on NBC. Here’s how it all began: three suburban moms got tired of struggling to make ends meet and decided it was time to stick up for themselves by robbing the local grocery store. But … the manager catches a glimpse of one of them and the loot is far more than the women expected, and it doesn’t take long for the three best friends to realize the perfect getaway will be harder than they thought. Good Girls is a comedy-infused drama that mixes a little Thelma & Louise with a bit of Breaking Bad.

Writer and executive producer Jenny Bans worked on several popular series such as Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy, and Scandal. Fans of Breaking Bad will be happy to know that Christina Hendricks portrays one of the three ‘girls’ of the title. Mae Whitman (Parenthood) and Retta (Parks and Recreation) are the others. Their husbands are Reno Wilson (Mike & Molly),Matthew Lillard (Twin Peaks), and Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights). The show is funny, serious, and poignant and has become one of my favorites! I’m very excited it’s coming back. It’s deliciously entertaining and I highly recommend it!

Good Girls” returns March 3rd on NBC.

The Village premieres March 19th on NBC

The Village

The world can be a scary place, and it’s always good to go about your life with the company of others. It’s reassuring to know you’re not going through whatever you’re going through alone. Like the old saying, “it takes a village..”.

The Village is NBC’s new drama premiering this month. Don’t get it confused with the same-titled horror film from 2004. No, no. This drama series, created by Mike Daniels, is a heartwarming look at the chosen families we are sometimes forced to make. Set in a unique residential building in Brooklyn, The Village follows the lives of the building’s very different residents, who choose to unite rather than stay divided by social and political constructs. Starring in the series are Michaela McManus (Law and Order: Special Victims Unit) as a single mother; Daren Kagasoff (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) as a young law student; and Warren Christie (The Resident) as a war veteran desperate to readjust to life back in the States.

A mid-season premiere, this is Daniels’s first series as a creator; his previous works as a writer and producer include One Tree Hill, Sons of Anarchy, and the Jennifer Lopez cop drama, Shades of Blue. With a resume like that, there’s no doubt that Daniels has the necessary talent to be able succeed narratively and commercially.

The Village” premieres on March 19th on NBC.
