new spring and summer shows 2019

I enjoyed the first two episodes of American Princess on Lifetime very much. It was a much more lighthearted program than most of the shows on Lifetime.
It's the story of a rich bride who discovers her fiancé with another woman on their wedding day. The bride runs off and ends up at a Renaissance Festival.
I had some problems with the script. The only Renaissance Festivals I know of are temporary things. The one in Ohio has a permanent site, but the organizers and players are there for only six weeks in late summer and fall. Then they move to another location.
Also, the fairs have an admission cost.
The bride wanders into a permanent festival location and just walks in without paying anything. She has no money on her because she is in her wedding gown.
My other complaint was the cursing. Although it was only occasional, it was too foul, especially for basic cable. If I'd been watching a violent murder mystery, it wouldn't have bothered me. But the F word is inappropriate for this show.
Despite those two problems, I will continue watching the show, as it was very amusing.
The story of a bride on the lam is not a new one: It Happened One Night, Smoky and the Bandit and Runaway Bride are three that come to mind.

The Red Line on CBS was horrible. The new Blood and Treasure is just as bad.

grand hotel

Grand Hotel began on ABC last Monday. It's trashy and had too many look-alike characters but I enjoyed it. Being filmed in Miami, it's also very pretty to look at it.
I don't recognize any of the cast. The man who plays the father seems to channeling Edward James Olmos and the actress who plays the daughter who just came home from college reminds me of America Ferrera, and I have to wonder if those roles were originally written for those two actors.

just roll with it

Just Roll with It is the latest annoying kids' show on the Disney Channel. It sounded different so I thought I would watch it.
It's a semi-scripted show about a husband, wife and their two children. The premise is that there is periodically a buzzer, and then the audience (who you get to see and hear) votes on three choices of what happens next. It's basically a cross between your average sitcom and the old Nickelodeon series about getting slimed.
If it were just a family sitcom, I might enjoy it, since there as much emphasis on the parents as there is on the children. But the interruptions are annoying and sometimes gross and I couldn't tolerate more than two episodes.

the in-between

The In-Between on NBC is much like Jennifer Love Hewitt's The Ghost Whisperer show, about a psychic who helps the police find missing people. The Ghost Whisperer was too creepy and scary for my taste, and two episodes of The In-Between was enough. Not only was it nerve-wracking, it was much too violent for my taste.

reef break

I had a hard time following the plot of the pilot of Reef Break on ABC, but so far I will continue watching it. It's set in Hawaii and is largely about surfing, so of course I HAVE to watch it! It's about a former detective who was also a con artist who's now out of jail and is helping the local police solve crimes.
The surfing I "got"--the characters I haven't yet "got."
