The Good Place

Quotes of the Week: October 9-15

These are my favorite quotes from the past week, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Alex: Your cousin smells terrific.

Clark: Being Kara is just as important as being Supergirl.

Lucifer
Lucifer: Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire.

Conviction
Hayes: If you don’t want me to sleep with waiters from Mom’s campaign events, don’t hire hot ones.

Hayes: Next time you want to check up on me, find a different spy, because I’m never sleeping with someone already in bed with my mother.

Timeless
Wyatt: An actor.

New Girl
Jess: You can’t be mad at these people.
Schmidt: But they were all horrible to me, Jess.

Schmidt: I sure did.

The Real O’Neals
Jodi: I’ll make you a deal. I’ll do the modeling gig if you go out with VP Murray on a real date.

Eileen: Of all the fabrics in all the world, he had to wear that one.

Quotes of the Week: September 25-October 1

These are my favorite quotes from the past week, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

New Girl
Jess: Let’s get ready to Rodham!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Director Mace: There’s so much S.H.I.E.L.D. history that Agent Carter herself didn’t know it all.

Mack: Why? Why are you doing this?
Fitz: Because she’s turned her back on us, Mack! Because something terrible happened, and she didn’t want our help getting through it!
Mack: Slow down, Turbo.
Fitz: Well, we’ve all been through terrible things, all of us, and we’ve never turned our back!
Daisy: I…I’m doing what I need to do.
Mack: And it still affects us. Like it or not.

This Is Us
Kevin: What did I ever do those first two minutes without you?
Kate: Uh, you cried and you crapped a lot.
Kevin: Sounds about right.

Toby: I heard that Deadpool was her idea… or maybe it was Hamilton, I get those two confused.

Rebecca: Hey, how do you think we’re doing so far? At parenting?
Jack: I…
Rebecca: ‘Cause I think we’re at a six. On a sliding scale, one through ten, I think we’re at a six, and I think I’m being generous.
Jack: Bec…
Rebecca: Seven, fine, but only because there are three of them.
Jack: Baby, I…
Rebecca: And the thing is, I’m trying really hard to get us to a nine. Because they are cute kids, and they deserve nine-parents. And the thing is, I feel like I’m there, Jack. I feel like I’m operating at a nine. Because I do individualized lunches, and I do individualized tuck-ins for each kid so nobody feels gypped. And… when you’re home, and you’re you, you’re way better than I am. You’re a ten when you’re you, Jack. But you’re getting home later and later, and when you do come home, you’re…
Jack: Bec, what are you saying?
Rebecca: The drinking has to stop. You have to reign it in, baby, because I won’t have it in my house.
Jack: You won’t have it in your house.
Rebecca: I won’t! So, if it’s a problem, fix it. Be a man, and fix it. Because I’m done letting you lower our score.

The West Wing
Ron: It wasn’t your fault. It wasn’t Gina’s fault. It wasn’t Charlie’s fault. It wasn’t anybody’s fault, Toby. It was an act of madmen. You think a tent was going to stop them? We got the President in the car. We got Zoe in the car. And at 150 yards and five stories up, the shooters were down 9.2 seconds after the first shot was fired. I would never let you not let me protect the President. You tell us you don’t like something, we figure out something else. It was an act of madmen.

8 New Fall Shows…

Last week, I shared the returning shows that I am most excited about, so here are the eight new shows that I will be checking out this Fall. Please let me know in the comments which new shows you are looking forward to watching!

1. Queen Sugar, premieres September 6th at 10/9c on OWN, stars Rutina Wesley, Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Kofi Siriboe, Nicholas L. Ashe, Dondre T. Whitfield, Omar J. Dorsey, Timon Kyle Durrett, Greg Vaughan, Tina Lifford, Ethan Hutchison, Henry G. Sanders, Bianca Lawson, Glynn Turman, and Marycarmen Lopez. Based on the book by Natalie Baszile, and Executive Produced by Ava DuVernay and Oprah Winfrey, this show tells the story of estranged siblings coming together to run their family’s struggling sugarcane farm in Louisiana. The story itself sounds interesting, and the cast looks fantastic, but I am also interested in this series because DuVernay hired all female directors and she made sure that the crew was inclusive of all races and genders, which is, sadly, still very rare.



2. The Good Place, premieres September 19th at 10/9c on NBC, stars Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, D’Arcy Carden, and Manny Jacinto. Bell plays a woman who has entered into the afterlife and ended up in the Good Place, but soon realizes that she has been mistaken for someone else. So that she does not get found out and sent to the Bad Place, she is determined to change her ways and become a good person. Veronica Mars and Sam Malone together in one show?! I’m in. Also, it looks forking hilarious.



3. This Is Us, premieres September 20th at 10/9c on NBC, stars Sterling K. Brown, Justin Hartley, Ron Cephas Jones, Chrissy Metz, Mandy Moore, Chris Sullivan, Milo Ventimiglia, and Susan Kelechi Watson. This series will follow a group of people whose lives intersect and who all share the same birthday. In fact, they may have more in common than they think. It has a great cast, and looks like it will fill the Parenthood sized hole in my heart. Me and my box of tissues are ready!



4. Pitch, premieres September 22nd at 9/8c on Fox, stars Kylie Bunbury, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Ali Larter, Mark Consuelos, Dan Lauria, Mo McRae, Meagan Holder, and Tim Jo. Bunbury plays a pitcher, known for her screwball, who becomes the first woman to play Major League Baseball. Even though she has made it to the big leagues, she still has to prove herself to her teammates and the fans. Fox has teamed with MLB for the show allowing production to film at Petco Park in San Diego, as well as the use of various MLB marks, logos, uniforms, teams, stadiums, and game footage. I was fortunate to see the first episode of this at a Round Rock Express game last month, and it is fantastic. I will say, as a Philadelphia Phillies fan, I am hoping for at least one cameo from the greatest mascot of all time.
