What to Watch: Sept. 3-9, 2013

Revolution

CHICAGO – The biggest column yet on What to Watch on DVD, Blu-ray, Netflix, Amazon, On Demand, and more is another seemingly random hodge-podge of offerings that you can use to guide your way through the new releases shelf at Best Buy, the On Demand section on Vudu, the store on iTunes, and maybe even Netflix and Hulu. Pick your favorites. This is the way we’d rank these new releases if you have a free night this weekend or money to burn next week.

TV News: NBC Announces Fall Schedule with Six New Shows, Changes to Every Night

CHICAGO – When you’re in as much of a ratings struggle as NBC, it makes sense to shake things up and that’s exactly what they’re doing in the Fall with a new show or an old show in a new time every single night of the week. “Chicago Fire,” “Revolution,” “The Biggest Loser,” “Parks and Recreation,” and “Parenthood” are moving.

TV News: ‘Revolution’ Starts Strong on NBC, ‘The Mob Doctor’ Bombs on FOX

Revolution from J.J. Abrams, Jon Favreau

CHICAGO – The HollywoodChicago.com prediction that “The Mob Doctor” looks likely to be the first cancellation of the new year was proven correct in last night’s overnight ratings as the FOX drama premiered to anemic numbers against only “The Voice” on NBC. Once “2 Broke Girls” and “Dancing with the Stars” enter the timeslot, it’s only a matter of time before the axe swings. Meanwhile, “Revolution” opened very strongly and held its audience well.

TV Review: NBC’s ‘Revolution’ Could Be Next Great Network Drama

CHICAGO – Great television often comes from a “what would you do” premise. What would you do if you were one of the few survivors of the crash of Flight 815? What would you do if you were unable to provide for your family other than to cook meth? What would you do if the zombie apocalypse became reality? There’s great storytelling potential in putting viewers in fantastic situations and then grounding them in reality.

  • Bobby Pin Girls

    CHICAGO – The “breeder years” are difficult on everyone, as the biological imperative becomes overwhelming and the couplings that result yield both discovery and misadventure. Nothing Without a Company’s new play “Bobby Pin Girls” highlight two such Millennial women, roommates who are having man trouble, although the argument can be made that it’s eternally “boy trouble.” The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through December 3rd, 2017. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • Transformers 5 front

    CHICAGO – Knock me over with a feather kids, but I enjoyed “Transformers: The Last Knight.” Maybe it was in comparison to the others or maybe director Michael Bay has beaten me into submission, but this one had the right story elements and casting to make it work, with exceptions of course. It’s goofiness is its charm, and it was released on Blu-Ray/DVD on September 26th, 2017 (Digital HD already available).
