LUCIFER: Our devilish hero continues to search for 'The Sinner Man'
while being sidetracked by the case of the week involving a comedian
with puppets. To prove the danger of guns, LUCIFER accidentally puts
his hand on a gun and then accidentally fires it at a suspect...with no
repercussions at all for shooting the guy. Meanwhile, the new police
chief from SMALLVILLE is starting to look like he must be The Sinner Man
as his plotline of secretly investigating the case makes very little sense.
THE GOOD DOCTOR: For some reason our main protagonist and his female
cohort have to go across town to pick up a liver so that it can be
transplanted into an elderly alcoholic. Is this a DALLAS remake? Along
the way, there is all kinds of stupidity involve a grounded helicopter,
a slow driving police car, open liver emergency surgery, and slushies.
Setting aside all that horrible plotline, we also find out that our main
protagonist's Autism largely takes the form of being a control freak who
hates JEOPARDY and thus simply refuses to answer any phrase put forth in
the form of a question. Meanwhile, back at the hospital, we see the
juxtaposition between some rich guy with mouth cancer who keeps smoking
anyway and gets his surgery and some (presumably) poor guy with a dying
liver who keeps drinking (but not really, except when he does) and
doesn't get his new liver. Bad episode all around.
SUBURRA: LA SERIE: The first episode of this Netflix crime drama
series. I had a lot of trouble figuring out how/if this series fit into
the world of the 2015 movie, SUBURRA. On one hand, the events opened
with a political situation that suggested that this series picked up the
next day. On the other hand, the only character I recognized was one
that didn't logically fit with this being future events. After watching
the episode I checked on line to find out that this series is supposed
to be a prequel to the film. I suppose that makes sense. In any case,
this series has the same large cast of characters: evil Catholic church,
evil politicians, evil gangsters, evil gypsies...and lots of people who
party, take drugs, and have orgies. This all leads to a convoluted
alliance between three unlikely linked characters...one and done for me,
BONUSFAMILJEN: The first episode of this Netflix family dramedy series.
The premise here involves two people, each with kids, hooking up and
trying to raise those kids together...with both their exes still in the
parenting mix. The characters are all realistically flawed and the
situations are 'everyday' such as dealing with birthday parties and
school dynamics. I'll probably watch another episode, at least, but I'm
not sure this is my cup of tea.
