Nothing starts off a week on a better note then
Sadly, we at theTVaddict.com are still trying to figure out why America didn’t fall in love with ANDY RICHTER CONTROLS THE UNIVERSE (oh wait, it was on FOX — see FIREFLY, PROFIT, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT etc.) Here’s hoping love-able Andy has better luck on NBC.
Looking for yet another hour long procedural crime drama to fill your week between the eighteen CSI’S and LAW & ORDERS? The Jeff Goldblum vehicle RAINES is now streaming over at NBC.com. But before you press that play button and waste an hour of your valuable time on a series that will no doubt be cancelled in three weeks, may we suggest checking out a far superior drama that truly needs your support. FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS is the best drama you’re not watching. Give it an hour and you’ll be hooked. You can see it online by clicking here.
Can’t wait for tonight at 10PM to catch FX’s newest offering THE RICHES? You can catch it for free right now courtesy of AOL. THE RICHES stars Eddie Izzard and Mini Driver as two gypsy travelers from rural Lousiana. An unfortunate accident provides a great opportunity when they obtain the identity of a well-to-do “normal family,” becoming “Doug and Cherien Rich.” Seduced by the idea of a bigger life for themselves, and armed with the keys to a new house in a posh neighborhood, they soon find that suburban life is more twisted and challenging than any of their previous stings.
Joanne Ostrow of The Denver Post hails THE RICHES as TV’s “most promising new heavyweight” of the midseason, and praises Izzard’s performance as “phenomenal” and calls Driver “a wonder” to watch. The TV Addict couldn’t agree more and predicts THE RICHES will join THE SHIELD and NIP/TUCK as true breakout hits for one of the most daring networks on TV.
And now my dear readers where you come in. What have you seen? What do you like? What’s worth our time and what’s going to soon join the ranks of SMITH (ie. quickly cancelled). Post away with your thoughts.
