POWERLESS Preview: Just an Ordinary Person in an Extraordinary World

powerless

No one ever really thinks about the civilians in a world of superheroes — at least, no one thinks about the civilians unless a hero is trying to save them. But after the day is saved, what happens to the civilians who are just trying to live an ordinary life and come home to find out that their apartment has been collateral damage in a hero’s fight againt a supervillain?

That’s the question that POWERLESS is going to answer. Vanessa Hudgens stars as Emily Locke, a young Charm City resident who gets her dream job in Research and Development at Wayne Security. She’s not working for Bruce Wayne, however, she’s just working for his cousin, Van Wayne (Alan Tudyk). Emily and her colleagues are responsible for designing products to keep innocent civilian bystanders safe during superhero battles. Unfortunately, they have a few kinks to work out.

Several DC heroes all get nods in the preview below — from Superman to Batman to Wonder Woman. There’s no telling whether any of the marquee heroes will appear in the show, but one hero that will be prominently featured is Crimson Fox, who can be spotted in the video below.

POWRLESS premieres on February 2 on NBC.

THE GOOD PLACE Season Finale Recap: Where Did Eleanor End Up?

the good place

Eleanor’s death was finally revealed on THE GOOD PLACE and it had to do with margarita mix, an environmental activist and a runaway grocery cart. In another realm, meanwhile, Eleanor, Jason and Janet were traveling to Mindy St. Claire house on their stolen train. The trio eventually found Mindy, who apparently “mostly sucked, but did one good thing” in life. Her neighbourhood was created as compromise between the good and bad things in life. In other words, it’s “eternal mediocrity”. As Mindy explained to Eleanor how she ended up there, she told her that the afterlife is all about survival, not morality.

Back in the Good Place, Judge Shawn was presiding over Eleanor’s case in front of Real Eleanor, Chidi, Michael and Tahani. But Shawn could only deal with cold, hard facts, which would prove difficult when it came to Eleanor’s case. As Eleanor’s friends tried to convince Shawn why Eleanor should be allowed to stay, he told them that Eleanor isn’t in the Bad Place and they had no idea where she was. As Shawn ran through all of Eleanor’s horrible actions, Chidi made a somewhat emotional plea that Eleanor had changed from the person she used to be. But Shawn believed that Eleanor was a bad person — as was Jason — and both belong in The Bad Place.

As Eleanor settled into Mindy’s house, she realized that Mindy’s place wouldn’t be that much fun. Soon Shawn used Janet’s mouth to transmit a message to Eleanor and Jason — they had to turn themselves in or Chidi and Tahani would head to the Bad Place in their stead.

Jason was happy to leave Chidi and Tahani to take his place, but Eleanor was determined to turn herself in. Mindy tried to convince Eleanor that her survival was all that mattered. But Eleanor had genuinely changed and she tried to convince Jason that this was the right thing to do. As we flashed back to Eleanor’s childhood, we started to realize that her parents utter neglect led to her being the person she was on Earth and this explanation helped convince Jason that they should head back.

Eleanor and Jason arrived mere seconds after Shawn’s deadline for return, so he let the group decide which two people would end up in the Bad Place. As Michael left to wallow in his failure in the neighbourhood, Jason tried to use Chidi’s lessons to explain why Chidi and Tahani should take their places. Eleanor eventually convinced Jason they had to go and as they said their goodbyes Real Eleanor told the group she was going to return to the Bad Place because she could hack it there and because her soulmate didn’t love her. Which meant only one other person needed to go with her.

Jason celebrated the fact that he could now stay, even as Eleanor realized that meant she had to go. Meanwhile, we got a glimpse into Michael’s promotion to Architect and saw that he was determined to change things up. Back at Eleanor’s house, the group continued to argue about who should go. As the situation dissolved into an argument, Eleanor had a monumental revelation and declared that she and Chidi would be going to the Bad Place. Completely confident in her decision as she told Michael and Shawn, Eleanor said they would never take them to the Bad Place because….they were already there.

And Michael? He couldn’t believe she had figured it out.

“It looks like paradise, but it’s actually a filthy dumpster full of our worst anxieties…We’ve been torturing each other since the moment we arrived. And everything Michael has done has made at least once of us miserable,” Eleanor told the group. Everyone started to put it together, remembering what Michael had done to them. As Real Eleanor came in to confess her love to Chidi, Michael told her it was time to give up the ruse.

In further flashbacks, Michael told a group of his fellow Bad Place co-workers that he had a plan to trick humans into torturing each other by creating a fake Good Place. He managed to convince his bosses that he could accomplish this for 1,000 years but Shawn, who was in charge, thought it wouldn’t last six months. Meanwhile, Michael revealed that everyone in the neighbourhood besides Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason were all employees of the Bad Place (except for Janet). But Eleanor learning to be good threw a wrench in Michael’s plans.

And then THE GOOD PLACE revealed why Chidi and Tahani had ended up in the Bad Place: Chidi had hurt people in his life with his rigidity and indecisiveness, while Tahani’s philanthropy motivations were entirely selfish. As Eleanor pointed out that the only thing Michael accomplished was bringing the group together, Michael revealed that he was going to erase their memories and then start all over again.

The group desperately tried to figure out a plan as Michael tried to convince Shawn they should try another take. He eventually gave Michael permission to reboot, so Eleanor wrote a note and put it in Janet’s mouth for safekeeping.

And then Eleanor was back in the room outside Michael’s office, being told she was dead. As he walked her through the neighbourhood we saw some changes: the biggest being that a man named Chris Baker was Eleanor’s soulmate. As Chris headed off to work out, Janet came by with the note Eleanor had written to herself. What did it say? “Eleanor, find Chidi”. As Eleanor wondered out loud “what’s a Chidi?” we faded to white.

THE FLASH Extended Preview: The Future Looks Bleak

flash

Barry Allen has a problem. Before THE FLASH went on its winter hiatus the speedster learned that his one true love — Iris West — was fated to die.

But this is a man who has changed the past before (although, not in a way that made anyone happy, including himself). So now, with an Iris-less future ahead of him, Barry is once again looking to mess with the timeline.

Instead of keeping his plan a secret, Barry is honest — with Iris about her impending death and with the rest of his team about his desire to change the future. His plan is to figure out everything that leads up to Iris’ demise and somehow change the outcome of one of those events….thus changing the future in the process. When the show returns, a criminal named Plunder shows up in Central City. Barry recognizes the villain from his vision of the future and he’s hesitant to catch him, afraid that doing so will cement Iris’ fate. Seeing that Barry is uneasy about stopping Plunder, Wally steps up as Kid Flash. But will Wally ensure his sister’s death or will there be another opportunity for Team Flash to stop the future?

THE FLASH returns with all new episodes on Tuesday, January 24 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

THIS IS US Renewed for Second and Third Season

this-is-us

NBC has given a *two* season renewal to critically acclaimed freshman drama THIS IS US. The show has been renewed for a minimum 18-episode second and third season.

“We all got our wish that this is a hit show,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “THIS IS US is as good as anything we’ve ever had, we’re thrilled to renew it for two seasons and there’s no doubt it will have a long life on NBC. On behalf of everyone at NBC, we’re grateful for the artistry of the cast, crew, and producers assembled by our gifted creator, Dan Fogelman. In a world where there are literally hundreds of television dramas, we’re proud to have one of the very best that is also one of the highest-rated.”

So far this season, THIS IS US originals are averaging a 4.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 14.6 million viewers overall in “live plus seven day” results from Nielsen Media Research, making it the #1 new show of the season in 18-49 and television’s #4 entertainment series in that key demographic.

NBC Orders WILL & GRACE Revival Series

o-WILL-AND-GRACE-facebook-1

NBC has officially announced a revival series for WILL & GRACE, the long-running comedy series starring Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally. NBC has ordered a 10-episode limited run of WILL & GRACE during the 2017-18 season.

All four stars will be returning and original series creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan will act as showrunners and executive producers. Legendary director James Burrows, who directed every episode of the show during its initial eight-year run, is on board to direct and executive produce.

“We’re thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back,” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt. “This groundbreaking series for everything from gay rights to social and political commentary — all disguised as a high-speed train of witty pop culture — is coming back where it belongs.”

Jennifer Salke, President of NBC Entertainment, added: “We started talking with Mutchnick and Kohan about producing new episodes right after they shot the secret reunion show back in September, and the fact that all four of the original stars were excited about getting back into production is a testament to the joyful experience they had doing nearly 200 episodes for eight seasons. Few things cut through the clutter these days, especially in comedy, and WILL & GRACE is one of the best.”

E! Announces Premiere Date For THE ARRANGEMENT

the arrangement

E! has found success with THE ROYALS and soon the network will be launching its second scripted series, THE ARRANGEMENT.

The 10 episode, one-hour series stars Josh Henderson as Kyle West, a wildly popular Hollywood Star. One day, young actress Megan Morrison (Christine Evangelista) auditions for the female lead in a summer blockbuster opposite West. The audition leads to a date and then a relationship between West and Morrison, but she’s thrown for a loop when she’s presented with a contract that has the potential to increase her fame, but she has to question whether her relationship is about love or an arragement.

West, meanwhile, is covering up a big secret. His mentor, Terence Anderson (Michael Vartan), runs a self-organization called the Institute of The Higher Mind and is married to Kyle’s producing partner Deann. So the question becomes: is West entering into this relationship to help his reputation?

THE ARRANGEMENT will premiere on Sunday, March 5 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on E!
