The New Season continues!!!

As our son’s wedding is happening on Sat Oct 3, I am working to a Friday deadline this week. We will be having a rehearsal dinner, lots of overnight guests, and a post wedding Sunday brunch. Not to mention a very big day on Sat.!  We will be leaving Oct. 7 to spend a week in the UK where we will attend the wedding of the daughter of very good friends. As a result, this will be my last blog for a couple of weeks as I will be unlikely to be watching much TV while we are going to be touring around London.  I hope to see lots of plays while we are there and will report back.

Premieres this week:

Code Black – CBS Wed nights at 10; a by the numbers medical show with an ensemble cast that includes Marcia Gay Hardin. Cliche ridden and all stuff we’ve seen before.
The Widower –  PBS Sunday nights; a true story about a British nurse who controls his wife with sedatives
Home Fires on Masterpiece –  PBS Sun nights; pre-WWII period drama about a Women’s Institute in a rural British town
