Gone (NBC) – Premieres TBA 2018

Procedural crime drama that is centred on Kit “Kick” Lannigan, who as a kid was abducted for 5 years before the FBI saved her. 15 years later Kick is running self defence classes in a building she shares with another abductee survivor James who spends his time hacking various government agency sites.

After one of her classes Kit is offered the chance to help on an abduction case by the FBI agent who found her, as he has formed specialist a team to work on abduction cases, and is in need of her knowledge on how the kidnappers operate. After tentatively agreeing to help Kick and James get brought onto the team where their skills help solve the case.

The show is the usual lightweight CSI style bit of programming that is watchable enough to waste 45 minutes. Though it’s something you don’t have to follow it that closely to know what’s going on, and isn’t something you’d go out of you way to watch.

Barry (HBO) – Premieres TBA

Comedy about ex-marine Barry who after leaving the military works as a low rent hitman where he’s becoming disillusioned with his life, and is looking for something he feels worthwhile.

After being given a job in LA to kill the lover of an Armenian gangsters wife, Barry accidentally befriends him as he followed him into a drama class and ended up having to perform a scene with him. This makes Barry that believe that acting is his calling much to the dismay of his handler Fuches.

As a comedy it’s a pretty gentle going affair where it occasionally mixes it up with some dark moments. It’s a solid opener.
