Monday’s catch-up news



British TV


  • I see other sites claiming that “No Ordinary Family” is still on the bubble, but who would know better than Michael Chiklis that it’s cancelled if he’s joined the pilot for a new show?
    If “Lost And Found” makes it to series, I’ll check it out, if only because I’m a big fan of Jordana Spiro.
    “17th Precinct” sounds exciting and that’s a great cast lined up so far. But on a personal level – it doesn’t sound like main Toobworld…..
    Michael Boatman as the hospital chief of staff in “The Doctor” sounds like a variation on the TV trope in which the black character is the boss, usually seen in cop shows like “Law & Order”, “Castle”, “Homicide: Life On The Street”, “NYPD Blue”, and “Martial Law”. And of course in its own genre, there’s “Grey’s Anatomy”…….

    Julie Benz has just signed up for a pilot too so…

  • Yeah, saw that after I checked a few other fave TV sites and I thought – “Yep, that seals it!”
