saving the world...


Just in case you’ve been fretting about this: TLC and I still love a few of the same television shows. Grey’s Anatomy. This Is Us. American Housewife. Fixer Upper. Of course Fixer Upper.

But as has happened with My Sweet Hubby (MSH), the shows TLC and I don’t share a mutual love for or interest in are on a mucho bigger list. Sigh. Frankly, I’m too pooped to even try to remember all the cRaZy, useless, RIDICULOUS stuff she watches. She’d just be offended. (And, possibly, a bit embarrassed for Y’all to read what those useless shows are. Winky. Wink.)

I did ask her last week if she was watching a show called Kevin (Probably) Saves the World. “No,” she says. (Kind of snotty-ish.) “I didn’t think that looked like a show I’d be interested in.”

Well, Friends, I’ve watched two episodes (I did miss the first one and I haven’t had a chance to check to see if I can catch it On Demand.) and I REALLY LIKE IT.

Here’s how ABC describes it:

Kevin Finn is struggling. Directionless and cluelessly self-serving, he seems to be drifting ever closer to total despair. With his life spiraling further and further out of control, he heads home to seek refuge with his widowed twin sister, Amy, and her young daughter. On his first night there, life takes an unexpected turn when he receives an unlikely celestial being named Yvette, who has a mission for him: to save the world. It’s going to take a lot of trial and error, but maybe a bigger purpose is exactly what he’d needed all along.

So Jason Ritter is Kevin. RITTER. John Ritter’s son! He looks so much like his Dad! I think he’s as good an actor/comedian as John was, too.

His sister is JoAnna Garcia. TLC and I ADORE HER. We have treasured her since we watched, faithfully, Reba, and she played Cheyenne. Reba’s oldest daughter. She is CUTE. And, IMHO, quite the talented actor.

I’m not familiar with the other actors but they are all GREAT. The show is clever. Funny. Interesting. Charming. I’m happy to have something like this to look forward to each week. I don’t expect to cry. At least, not during every show. (You understand what I mean. This Is Us and Grey’s tears/sobs/breakdowns. Sheesh.) I believe I’ll continue to enjoy it for the delightfully different entertainment I feel it is.

Remember: Me liking a television show? One that’s a bit out of the ordinary? Yep. That usually means it won’t last past one season. I hope this one does! I’m simply getting too old for heavy, scary dramas. The Blacklist is still a show MSH and I watch together. It’s about as violent as I can do/go. However, I’m recording a new show for us to try. Seal Team. A military drama. Duh. We’ve watched one. It's going to be super iffy for moi. Challenging. (I had to look away a couple of times and ask MSH when it was safe to look back.)  I’m sure it’s quite realistic. It's SUPER INTENSE. I’m not convinced I can stick with it. Time will tell…

Hey, I’ve got to scoot! My davenport is calling my name. I think this is a night of comedies and I HEART MY COMEDIES. (More about them in another post, perhaps…)

Have a Terrific Thursday, Fantastic Friday and Wonderful Weekend, Sillies Everywhere!

ta-ta for now,
