Monday Memos: Top 3 TV shows that left us to soon in 2014 & 2015

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we’re going to talk about everybody’s favorite pastime…watching T.V.! January is an interesting time for T.V., because this is when new seasons premiere, new shows are added to the list of thing’s we’re obsessed with, and our hearts are broken when our fav shows are cancelled. So let’s take a look at some of the shows in 2014 & 2015 that were taken from us far too soon. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
crisis3) Crisis (NBC):
This high action drama was another show that had the potential to be so great. It told the story of what happens when the nation’s most powerful people’s children are kidnapped and held for ransom. We not only got to see the drama that the adults went through as they struggled with their parental love and civil duties, but we also got to see the drama that the kids went though as they tried to survive. This is a show that always kept its’ audience on their toes, so I would have liked to see how it would have continued.

2) Red Band Society (FOX):red band society
This show was able to perfectly balance, romance, drama, tragedy, and comedy in an amazing story of terminal ill teenager who live in a hospital. Even though the show only had a 13 episode run, they did a great job of developing their characters, and it’s obvious that we would have fallen even more in love with these characters as the series continued.
 
twisted 21) Twisted (ABC Family):
This was was another drama that always had us on our toes. This show told the story of a boy named Danny who returns to his hometown after 5 years in a juvenile detention center after being convicted of murdering his aunt. When he returns he reunites with his 2 childhood best friends and soon finds himself accused of committing another murder after a popular girl from his high school dies. In the rest of the season we get romance, lots of drama, and more questions about whether or not Danny really killed his aunt, and if he didn’t what secrets is his family hiding. It’s such a shame that this show ended before we could really dive into the story, and explore these complex characters.

Monday Memos: Fall shows you can’t miss

Hello people of the internet!!! With summer quickly coming to an end (insert sad face), we will soon say hello to all of2015 new fall tv our favorite things about fall, such as: warm sweaters, all of the holidays were we eat things that we will regret in the spring, pumpkin spice everything, and FALL TV! So to celebrate, on today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to discuss 3 new shows that will be hitting our TVs this fall. that you CAN’T miss out on (on a side note, by the time I post this blog 1 of the shows will have already premiered, also I didn’t mean to only feature shows that will begin in September, it just sort of worked out that way). Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

3) Muppets (September 22nd 8/7c, ABC):

In this show, we will see the everyday lives of The Muppets as they struggle to balance their personal and professional lives. We will also see all of the drama that happens behind the scenes as The Muppets produce the late night show ‘Up Late with Miss Piggy’. This show is going to be a parody of a mockumentary (which is a fake documentary style show such as The Office or Modern Family), and will definitely feature A LOT of drama and comedy. It has been said that this show will have a morn “grown up” flair to it that new and old fans will definitely love. Personally I can’t wait to see the drama that unfolds between Kermit and Miss Piggy after their breakup this summer (oh the drama!).

 

2) Game Shakers (September 12th 8:30/7:30c, Nickelodeon):

This new Nickelodeon show is sure to be a hit with kids and those who are still kids in their hearts. Game Shakers is the newest show from veteran hit maker Dan Schneider who previously brought us: All That, Kenan and Kel, Drake and Josh, iCarly, and so many more. This show is about two BFFs named Babe and Kenzie, who create a video game app for a school science project, and from this start a successful gaming company. Along the way they get their best friend Hudson to serve as their test dummy, and receive an investment from a successful rapper known as Double G. This show is going to include guest starring spots from various YouTubers and some stars from Dan Schneider’s other shows, and will co-star Kel Mitchell from Kenan and Kel (which older fans will fangirl/fanboy over).

 

1) Grandfathered (September 29th 8/7c, FOX)

This show stars John Stamos who is a recently divorced restaurant owner who finds out that he has a son (Josh Peck) he never knew about, and even more surprising, a granddaughter. This will definitely be a comedic sitcom that will have everyone talking. Personally I’m really excited to see Josh Peck (who we loved from Drake & Josh) and John Stamos’ comedic talents collide. This is definitely a show we will be talking about all fall.

Monday Memos: Harry Shearer’s Top 5 Best Simpsons Characters

simpsons_harry-shearerHello people of the Internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to talk about one of TV’s longest running shows, ‘The Simpsons’. For more than 25 years, this show has entertained us with hilarious story lines, and unforgettable characters that we love re watching again and again. Sadly as I’m sure y’all have heard, Harry Shearer, one of the voice actors behind several of the characters we love is leaving the show. Even though we will most likely get new voice actors for these roles, it only seems appropriate to honor the work Harry Shearer has done to shape so many of the characters we love on the show. So, we’re going to count down the ‘Top 5 Harry Shearer Simpsons Characters’. Ready? Let’s go!!! 5) Reverend Lovejoy: So let’s kick things off with Reverend Lovejoy. Now who doesn’t love the hilarious situations that this character has helped create. Not only is this character a reverend of the church that our favorite TV family attends, but he’s also a cool character that hangs out at Moe’s bar sometimes, and plays guitar. When you add him in a situation with Homer (who is definitely not what most people picture when they think of a religious guy), then you have the perfect recipe some really funny moments (check out one of these funny moments below).

When you add him in a situation with Homer (who is definitely not what most people picture when they think of a religious guy), then you have the perfect recipe some really funny moments (check out one of these funny moments below).

 

4) Waylon Smithers:
Now what would Mr. Burns be without Smithers? All great character have their loyal sidekicks, but luckily for us, we also get to see who Smithers really is as an individual. I’ve always thought of Smithers as what Milhouse could be as an adult. Think about it, they’re both submissive, and they follow the lead of a character that can be a little selfish. Even though some people might feel like Smithers gets overshadowed by Mr. Burns, honestly I don’t think we would love Mr. Burns as much if we didn’t have everyone’s favorite sidekick along for the ride (it’s clips like this that show just what a perfect setup character Smithers is).

 

3) Principal Skinner:
Ok it’s time to talk about everyone’s fav stick in the mud…Principal Skinner. Now why exactly do we love Principal Skinner? Well he’s funny (of course), he’s a HUGE pushover (complete with an overbearing mother who he lives with), and he’s the perfect setup character for Bart to torment. Honestly without Skinner we wouldn’t have such hilarious Bart moments, and then what would we do? Oh and you gotta love when Superintendent Chalmers gets frustrated and yells SkinneeEEEEERR…so funny (check out a clip of this below…you know you wanna!)

 

2) Mr. Burns:
Now we’re getting to one of our all time favorite characters! No other character has had us feel so many emotions towards them (love, hate, confusion…anyway, moving on…). Mr. Burns has definitely added fun storylines, and sometimes even surprises us by showing that he can be kind, and then he goes back to being the greedy, selfish Scrooge like character that we all love. So whether you love him or love to hate him, Mr. Burns is a character that Springfield would be lost without (check out a Mr. Burns clip below, I promise that it will be excellent…if you don’t like that joke please don’t release the hounds).

 

1) Ned Flanders:
Now we’ve reached one of the characters that is completely engraved in Simpsons history…Ned Flanders! Without Flanders, we all know that Homer’s character just wouldn’t be the same. Flanders is the neurotic, religious, incredibly strange character that we all are all either thankful we don’t have in our lives, or wish we did live next door to. It’s clear that the Simpsons’ just wouldn’t be the same without this character, and hopefully the next actor who voices Flanders will be able to capture everything that makes this character so iconic (you know we gotta finish this off with a Flanders clip…I think this is probably one of the best Flanders moments ever…enjoy!).
