I spent most of this week watching movies but I did catch a few shows. Here’s some thoughts on them:
Abbott Elementary (Wednesday Night, ABC)
Ava is such a cool principal! This week’s episode wasn’t as strong as the previous three episodes but the scenes in which we saw how Ava dealt with disciplinary problems were entertaining. “I want to go to the principal’s office!”
The Amazing Race (Wednesday Night, CBS)
I reviewed the latest episode of The Amazing Race here!
Atlanta (Thursday Night, FX)
Another crazy day at the mall. I’m glad Al survived. Earn and Darius got their shoes. The Crank Dat Killer was taken off the streets. Some Guy Named Doug finally got to collaborate with Al. Another day in Atlanta.
Bachelor in Paradise (Monday and Tuesday Night, ABC)
Eh. This season is too complicated for me. The scenery’s nice.
Baywatch (Weekday Morning, H&I)
I watched an episode of Baywatch on Wednesday morning. After an accident left him paralyzed, Manny had a crisis of confidence. Meanwhile, Neely and Mitch continued to argue on the beach. This was an episode from Baywatch’s final season. It was all a bit silly but the scenery was nice.
Fantasy Island (Tubi)

Full House (Sunday Evening, MeTV)
In the first episode, Aunt Becky went back to work and Danny panicked because it meant his new girlfriend would be leaving Wake Up, San Francisco. Fortunately, she got hired to do weather so I guess that all worked out. Becky going back to work reminded me of how little Jesse actually does.
In the second episode, a singer was hired to perform at Stephanie’s birthday party. Stephanie had a crush on him but he had a crush on DJ. The singer was like 30 so he really shouldn’t have had a crush on either of them.
Ghosts (Thursday Night, CBS)
Poor Jay! He just wants some friends, like his wife has with the ghosts. Unfortunately, he always seems to end up finding the worst possible friends around. This week, he nearly got sucked into a cult. Perhaps Jay should follow the ghost’s advice and become a snake oil salesman.
Hell’s Kitchen (Thursday Night, FOX)
O’Shay being eliminated was not a huge surprise. It really should have happened last week, when he tried to send out raw chicken. The episode ended with Chef Ramsay announcing that the 20s vs. 40s competition was over and the show was reverting back to its usual women vs men format. Again, this wasn’t a huge surprise. Hell’s Kitchen, unlike several other reality shows, has pretty much stuck with its original format and I don’t see it changing any time soon.
Interview With A Vampire (Sunday Night, AMC)
I’m still struggling to get into this one, for whatever reason. I’ll give it another try next week and maybe rewatch the first two episodes as well.
Law & Order (Thursday Night, NBC)
This week, the criminal was a serial killer who was also a famous actor. The episode wasn’t anything special but at least it wasn’t obnoxiously political.
Law & Order: Organized Crime (Thursday Night, NBC)
I watched it but I’d be lying if I said I remembered a thing about it, beyond Stabler looking like he was about to give himself a heart attack with all of his pent-up rage.
Law & Order: SVU (Thursday Night, NBC)
Again, I watched it but I don’t remember much about it. By broadcasting all of these Law & Order shows on the same night, NBC is causing them to blend together in my mind.
The Love Boat (Paramount Plus)
I reviewed what I watched here!
Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head (Paramount Plus)
I honestly thought last week’s episode was the season finale but it turns out I was wrong! A new episode dropped on Thursday. Beavis and Butt-Head building their own dinosaur was hilarious and also sad. “Why did we do this?”
The Real Love Boat (Wednesday Night, CBS)
Who cares? The old Love Boat is more fun.
Survivor (Wednesday Night, CBS)
I reviewed the latest episode of Survivor here!
Talking Dead (Sunday Night, AMC)
I didn’t pay much attention. Chris Hardwicke seemed kind of bored with it all.
The Walking Dead (Sunday Night, AMC)
I hate to admit it but I have yet to find the time to write out full length reviews of the past two episodes of The Walking Dead. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to do it next week. As for last week’s episode, it was an improvement on the episode that came before it. I’m kind of bored with the downfall of the Commonwealth, though. I think the show made an excuse taking that long break before starting the final half of season 11. I was really into the show before that break but now I’m struggling to get reinvested.
