ABC Fall 2018 Shows, my impressions...

The upfronts were last week. Let's start with ABC.


Single Parents
An ensemble comedy about a group of single parents with kids in the same class. SNL's Taram Killiam looks hilarious as the over zealous dad dealing with the other jaded parents.

The Kids are Alright
A family comedy set in the 70s. It's Eight is Enough meets That 70s Show. I'm more of an 80s guy myself. The trailer looks funny. There might be too many characters to follow.

The Rookie
I might be the only one who remembers a one season late 80s drama called The Oldest Rookie. It was a cop who had worked in the public relations department since the academy who transfer to become a beat cop. This is basically the same story but with Nathan Fillion. Considering I love Nathan Fillion and love LA based cop shows with a twist, I'm sure I'll give this a chance.



A Million Little Things
A group of friends deal with the suicide of one of their friends. I'm not sure what the long term story is going to be or if the guy from Office Space who is dead will pop up on flashbacks. I'll consider this more in the fall.

The Alex Baldwin Show
Alec Baldwin had a short lived weekly interview show on MSNBC a few years ago. I found it refreshing and intimate. I remember know what happened to it. But this show seems like a similair concept.


Midseason
Grand Hotel
The last non-corporate family owned hotel in Miami is staffed with sexy waiters and maids. I love the sexy Latinx cast, but this looks like it might suffer from the Dynasty problem. Everyone is too focused on the one property instead of doing what is best for themselves. It's classic sunk costs mentality.

Whiskey Cavalier
I'm not sure if this is a comedy or not. It is an action romance between an FBI agent and a CIA agent. Not sure how this is going to turn out.
