In case you haven’t heard, it is back with new people.

I will freely admit I was expecting a train wreck, but to the credit of the producers, they have done a good job not deviating from the main idea of the old show too much or injecting wokeness. The principle of the island providing what you need rather than what you want remains as the backbone of the show’s script.

Roselyn Sanchez play Elena Roarke and she is the grandniece of our esteemed Mr. Roarke played by Ricardo Montalban. The dress code remains the eternal white and while by the time of the old series Mr. Roarke had embraced and accepted fully what the island demands, Ms. Roarke still has some lingering issues she is dealing with about the Island picking her as caretaker.

It is not a life-changing series, but surely a good one for a nice bowl of popcorn and sharing with your significant other.

  1. Seriously? You watch ‘The Bachelor’ too? LMAO!
    I recommend ‘Banshee’, ‘Hannibal’ or ‘Bosch’. 😉

      1. Yeah, I heard about it before, never got to watching since every single season show I ran into was always a pile of guano. But exceptions confirm the rule. 😛
        Looks like ‘Third Watch’ kind of thing, which I really liked, so might check it out in full. 😉
        And I recognize almost all the mugs from 1st 5 minutes. Haha.

  2. Banshee is a trite series copying the old and tired premise of pretending to be who you are not. Hannibal is one last squeeze for bucks on Manhunter and Silence of the Lambs. And you may not be a regular reader of the blog because I have already categorized Bosch as a breathrough Cop show to be placed alongside Hill Street Blues, Homicide: Life on the Streets, Brooklyn South and The Wire.

    You may now return to watch you PBS British imports.

    1. Miguel, watching that show made you a bit emotional it seems, I think you need a dose of ‘Kojak’. 😉
      Maybe, but ‘Banshee’ is fun, has great music, acting etc. It’s more like a cinematic comic book rather than a serious crime drama series.
      ‘Hannibal’ is way better than any of the movie adaptations in every aspect, especially the 1st season which from the start was originally intended to be the only one, though the last episode of season 2 is probably the best in whole series.
      Regular, but a recent, I’ve been scrolling through the older post as well, didn’t stumble on a ‘Bosch’ review yet. 🙂
      It’s a great show, was, with a lot of amazingly acted, written and directed episodes that suck you right into the next one. But it has some low points, the lowest being the final season which seems like almost a different show, the last episode especially.

    1. Naah, I threw mine out like 20 years ago and didn’t look back, the only stuff I watch since then is what I want, not what’s in the program, and without commercials. 🙂

        1. TV productions, yeah, but not TV broadcast. 😉
          Never watched anything except some short clips on a phone or a tablet, it’s F retarded, 17 inch minimum if you want to actually watch a movie. David Lynch put it best:

  3. I’ve watched 5-6 episodes of Bosch. Stopped – I’m not impressed. Usual detective tough guy “fighting the system, man!” tripe. It’s episodal Dirty Harry with silly writing and acting.
