Humans returns Tuesday for its Season 3 debut. The AI robots are revolting!!
The Americans ended its 6th and final season this past week, but will live on through On Demand and via Netflix for many years to come. With our newfound interest in Russian influence on the US political scene, this series couldn’t be more timely. I will miss it very much for its subtly layered story of two Russians embedded in Washington, DC who pose as a typical American married couple while living next door to an FBI agent.
Pose is the latest Ryan Murphy show to hit FX and debuts tonight. Murphy is the producer of several TV series including Glee, American Horror Story, Feud, 9-1-1, American Crime Story, Scream Queens, etc. Highlighting the LGBTQ community in 1980’s NYC, we are introduced to the world of Ball culture where “houses” of gay and transgender performers compete for trophies in events called balls. Great cast of Murphy stalwarts, includes Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek, etc.
TV Land (probably Much in Canada at some future point)
Younger This wonderful series about a 40-something masquerading as a 20-something in order to succeed in publishing is returning for its 5th season on Tuesday. This season will concentrate on Liza’s relationship with her boss Charles. Can’t wait!!
My usual addictions
Of course, Samantha Bee (Full Frontal)has been in the news lately because of her disdain for Ivanka Trump. Bee can be depended on to always go for the jugular. Perhaps too far in this case, but hopefully TBS (she’s seen on Comedy Network in Canada) will accept her apology, despite the loss of sponsors, and not cancel her show. I continue to watch Bill Maher, Trevor Noah, Jim Jeffries, John Oliver and Stephen Colbert for my giggles at the news of the day.
We just had a week of unusually hot weather here, so we’ve been hitting the golf course whenever possible. We’ll be spending lots of time with my mother-in-law who is in hospital as a result of a fall and we are looking for a spot in an assisted living facility for her as she can no longer return to her retirement residence. Looking forward to the upcoming Tony Awards next Sunday Night June 10 on CBS hosted by Sarah Bareilles and Josh Groan. Set your recording devices!! Hugs to all my friends who are facing medical challenges. Enjoy the week!!
