Kevin: Stay occupied?
Dave: Sure. You know, I mean, the busier we are doing stuff the less questions we ask. “Why are we here?” “What are God’s plans?” You know, in the short time that I’ve been in this place, I’ve uh… I’ve realized something. I don’t think there is a plan.

Makes sense you should have it. Lord knows you’ve been eyeing it for years. Honey, I’m not going with you to the cemetery, so don’t get mad, okay? I just can’t watch ’em put you in the ground. I have to remember you my way. So, if it’s alright, I’m just gonna sit here with you for a while. Te amo, Mommy.

Star Trek: Discovery
Captain Lorca: Starfleet didn’t start this war.

Maze: I’m great at dismembering humans. How hard can it be to fix one?

8 Baseball Figures…

Major League Baseball playoffs are in full swing (Go, Astros) and, there are not nearly enough shows about baseball, or that even include characters that at least play baseball. Here is my list of players, and really just anyone baseball adjacent (coaches, announcers, etc.). I did not include episodes in which regular characters play a random game of baseball, but I did include guest stars who only appeared in one episode of their particular show.

1. Samuel “Mayday” Malone – Cheers
played by Ted Danson
Sam was a relief pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but had to retire early due to his alcoholism. Sam now owns a Boston bar. This is still one of my favorite shows of all time.



2. Edmund Gonzales – Necessary Roughness
played by Adam Rodriguez
Eddie is a baseball slugger who suddenly cannot hit, and seeks help from psychotherapist Dr. Dani Santino. The show usually centered around football, but I always enjoyed when they explored other sports.



3. Genevieve “Ginny” Baker – Pitch
played by Kylie Bunbury
Ginny is a pitcher, and the first female player in Major League Baseball. She is a starting pitcher for the San Diego Padres. I am still not over the cancellation of this awesome show.

4. Joe, The New Yankee – Sex and the City
played by Mark Devine
Carrie catches a fly ball at a New York Yankees game, and uses her press pass to score a date with the new Yankee. They go on a few dates but, she ultimately breaks up with Yankee Joe. Considering the show was set in NYC, which is a big sports town, I am actually surprised that the girls did not date any other professional athletes.

8 Returning Fall Shows…

Summer television is always fun (and if you did not watch The Bold Type, you should get on that), but I am very excited for my Fall shows to return. Here are the ones that I am most excited about.

1. Outlander, season 3 premieres September 10 on Starz, stars Sam Heughan, Caitroina Balfe, Tobias Menzes, Sophie Skelton, and Richard Rankin. At the end of season 2, Jamie was about to head into the Battle of Culloden, so he sent Claire and their unborn child back through the stones, where she was reunited with Frank. I have read the third book, I know what is going to happen (for the most part), and I am still so excited for this to start. Each season the story and performances get better and better.



2. The Good Place, season 2 premieres September 20 on NBC, stars Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, D’Arcy Carden, and Manny Jacinto. If you did not watch the first season of this show, go do it immediately. It is hilarious. I have now watched it three times. I do not want to ruin anything for anyone who has not watched it, but I am very excited to see how they move forward going into season two. I also just need more Janet in my life.



3. Lethal Weapon, season 2 premieres September 26 on Fox, stars Clayne Crawford, Damon Wayans, Keesha Sharp, Kevin Rahm, Michelle Mitchenor, Jordana Brewster, Johnathan Fernandez, Richard Cabral, Dante Brown, and Chandler Kinney. I have to admit, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the first season of this show. I figured it would be a pretty cut and dry cop show, but it was a lot more fun. I am very much looking forward to more adventures with Riggs and Murtaugh.



4. Lucifer, season 3 premieres October 2 on Fox, stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Rachael Harris, Kevin Alejandro, D.B. Woodside, Aimee Garcia, Tricia Helfer, Scarlett Estevez, and Tom Welling. Last season ended with Lucifer waking up alone in the desert having had his wings restored. The new season will pick up right where we left off. Lucifer is trying to figure out how he got his wings back, a human Charlotte is putting her life back together, and newcomer Marcus Pierce shows up as a Lieutenant in the LAPD. One of the reasons that I love this show so much is that it really leans in to the ridiculous premise of a crime-solving demon. What can I say? The Devil is charming and sexy.
