Finally there's actually some major entertainment coming your way in March. No, I'm not talking about that endless college basketball tournament, but the gaggle of new television all blooming in this month. Add in the fact that the sun is still up at 5pm, and March is looking far more alluring than ever before.
Here are 4 new TV shows premiering in March that you cannot miss.
My mancrush this Monday is television’s best-kept secret on one of this season's best new shows, Pitch (seriously, watch this show!): Mark-Paul Gosselaar. You may or may not be aware that Zack Morris has returned to television. Thanks to his character’s beard that's authentic as it is epic, Gosselaar is nearly unrecognizable as veteran baseball player Mike Lawson.
In addition to his new facial hair, MPG shows off some serious talent both on the field and in front of the camera.
For the last five months I’ve been wishing I was blessed with the Speed Force, so I could either run into the future and dive into The Flash's “Flashpoint” arc or book it to an alternate universe so I could slap Barry Allen upside the head for even considering running back in time to save his mother’s life and thus creating an bizarrely different universe. Sadly, I just had to wait for the season 3 premiere like everyone else.
The Flash finally races onto television screens this Tuesday at 8/7c on The CW, but if you’re anything like me, you’re still craving spoilers. Here are 5 spoilers for The Flash’s third season...
Pumpkin spice is in the air, and that means the arrival of the latest crop of new television shows is right behind this seasonal treat. While this year’s harvest will yield a disappointingly high amount of time travel (NBC’s Timeless, The CW’s Frequency and ABC’s mid-season Time After Time) and remakes (Fox’s Lethal Weapon, The Exorcist and CBS’s MacGuyver), don’t be discouraged. Queen Sugar’s early debut has already raised the bar to stratospheric levels.
There’s still a bushel of delicious new shows that could be your next favorite, contain the next ship-worthy OTP or take pleasure in destroying your feels in new and exciting ways.
Here are the 5 Can’t-Miss New Shows of the season…
Every year, amidst the heat of summer, blerds, cosplayers and geeks make the annual trek to California for the ultimate celebration in all things sci-fi and spoilery. It’s the nerd nirvana known as the San Diego Comic-Con.
The only thing that numbs the pain of not being about to attend this Superbowl of Nerdom is the spoilers and trailers that now, thanks to social media, are almost instantaneously shared with the sad and ticketless. I’ve waded through all of the TV trailers from this year’s convention, and here are my four favorites...
With just a few weeks into summer and a promising stack of new and returning summer shows just beginning, is it a little TV-greedy to petulantly whine: “Is it fall yet!"?
Not if you’ve watched the recently released and stirring teasers for HBO’s Insecure and OWN’s Queen Sugar. These new series are made by and for black women, and look like the TV shows I've been fantasizing about for years...
To borrow from a popular Titanic Tumblr meme, it’s been 84 years since we’ve gotten a new episode of Empire.
The powerful Fox hip hop tragedy is finally returning for the back half of its second season. We finally get to learn what happened to Andre and Rhonda’s baby after she was cruelly shoved down the stairs by a masked attacker (expect grim news); and how Lucious is handling the loss of his cherished company (expect crazy).
In order to celebrate the epic return of Empire, we must appreciate the most important thing about the show. It’s not the Emmy-nominated actor, Taraji P. Henson and or Oscar nominee Terrence Howard. It’s not the scene-stealers, Jussie Smollett and Ta’Rhonda Jones. It's not even the music.
It’s Cookie Lyon’s sublime fashion.
The only thing more exciting than what will come out of the mama Lyon’s mouth is what comes out of her closet. From furs to fringe to feathers, nothing is off-limits for the matriarch of this empire. Check out my favorite season 2 ensembles, check out the preview below, and don’t forget to tune into Empire on Wednesdays on Fox at 9/8c.
The arrival of spring means warmer weather, brunch outdoors and a field-fresh harvest of guilty pleasure television. Bravo is kicking off their summer season with their fan-favorite reality show, Shahs of Sunset. The squad is back, and a new preview finds Reza, MJ, Gigi, Asa and new guy Shervin gearing up for another summer of partying, jet-setting, fighting.
Does the of television really need another cop show? If it’s a shady drama starring the multi-hyphenate superstar Jennifer Lopez and Emmy winner Ray Liotta, then of course!
In "Shades Of Blue," the NBC drama debuting next year, Jennifer Lopez triumphantly returns to the small screen as Harlee Santos—a single mother and a dirty cop who turns informant for the FBI to take down her mentor, Matt (Liotta), and his clan of criminals hiding behind badges.
The official trailer teases a suspenseful and complicated game of cat-and-mouse between Harlee and Matt as the FBI closes in. “Shades Of Blue” is a murkier hue for Lopez, who has portrayed everything from slain musician Selena Quintanilla her break-out movie, “Selena” to a modern Cinderella in “Maid In Manhattan” to a divorcee who has an affair with a student in this summer’s “The Boy Next Door” but has yet to play a truly corrupt character (or go without her luxurious extensions). Watch the intense trailer below.
Will “Shades Of Blue” be arresting television? Find out when "Shades Of Blue" premieres on January 7, 2016 on NBC.
Last week’s episode of “Jane The Virgin” found Jane and her hilarious hallucination “Bachelorette Jane” struggling to choose between her two loves: Rafael, the handsome hotelier and father to her newborn son and Michael, her former fiancé. The CW’s telenovela has successfully created a perfectly confounding love triangle with both Michael and Rafael being major contenders for Jane's heart. Normally, it’s completely lopsided, with one person being far better than the other. We all remember “Scandal’s” Jake-Olivia-Fitz federal fiasco, don’t we? (Spoiler Alert: They’re both married). Don't get me started on "Parks And Recreation's" April vs. Ann disaster.
Last week’s episode found Jane testing the waters with both Michael (Brett Dier) and Rafael and making a pretty strong case for both.
Jane (Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez) approaches everything with logic and organization, so let’s review the pros and cons for both contenders for Jane’s very organized and imaginative heart.
