TV shows come and go, but a few that I previously mentioned are still going strong. Madam Secretary (CBS) has Tea Leoni as a former CIA agent who takes on the role of Secretary of State after an accident claims the life of the office’s previous occupant. A recent episode that just aired was filmed in Massapequa and Massapequa’s Nautilus diner!
Another hit The Affair (Showtime) has been renewed for a second season. The show is based on an extramarital relationship between two troubled married people a New York City teacher and a young waitress. The best part of the show is how it is told. It is split into two perspectives, one from the teacher’s side and the other the waitress’. If you are a fan of drama and romance tune in!
The last show I recommended State of Affairs (NBC) just premiered this Monday night. According to several media outlets, Katherine Heigl is notoriously difficult to work with and doesn’t have many fans in the film industry. How will this bad press affect the popularity of the show? Time will only tell.
I would like to announce another TV show you should check out, The Librarians (TNT)! TNT ordered a 10-episode weekly series version of The Librarian, following the original cast that includes Noah Wyle, Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin, as well as four new characters who work for The Library. Here are some new characters:
- Eve Baird (Rebecca Romijn), who is a counter-terrorism agent who protects the group.
- Jake Stone (Christian Kane), who has an IQ of 190 and extensive knowledge of Art History.
- Cassandra (Lindy Booth), who has the special gift of auditory and sensory hallucinations linked to memory retrieval.
- Ezekiel Jones (John Kim), “a master of technologies” and fan of classic crimes who enjoys playing the role of international man of mystery.
- Jenkins (John Larroquette) will serve as the reluctant, caretaker; he’s worked at The Library’s branch office “for longer than anyone knows” and has extensive knowledge of ancient lore.
The series is set to premiere on December 7th. You can see the trailer here:
