According To Chrisley (USA) – Premieres 12th September

Chat show hosted by Todd Chrisley, a man brought to fame by the reality show Chrisley Knows Best, chats to his one guests after going through a few drawn out segments where he offers advice to the audience, pranks one of his family members and chats to them about what has just gone on.

It’s pretty much a low budget version of Kocktails With Khloé, where someone with no apparent skills in presenting, hosts a programme by awkwardly bumbling their way through something that shouldn’t be near.

It is awful.

The Sinner (USA)

TheSinner

The Sinner (USA) – Premieres 2nd August

A mystery thriller centered on Cora, a married mother of one, who during a family trip to the beach performs an unprovoked attack where she stabs and kills a fellow beach goer.

As Cora instantly pleads guilty to what she did, the detective working on the case is perturbed that there’s no motive behind the attack. So as he begins to look into what happened he starts to find that what happened has more links to Coras past than what was originally thought.

The show is a slow burner, but drip feeds enough to keep the story going without ruining the mystery of it all. It’s a decent bit of viewing.

Big Star Little Star (USA) – Premieres 31st May

A comedy game show hosted by Cat Deely, where three teams of a celebrity and their child go against each other, with the winner receiving $25k and the runners up $5k to put towards the charity of their choice.

In the show the teams go through 4 rounds of Mr & Mrs / That Awkward Game Show style multiple choice, lightly embarrassing family questions and a final round of charades where each round gives out increasing higher scores. Though the main focus of the show is to go through the answers allowing the kids reveal too much info in a kind of Little Big Shots style chat to get the laughs.

It’s pretty much a show playing on the kids say the funniest things premise, while being the lightest of light entertainment.

Inside The FBI: New York (USA) – Premieres 27th April

A show that documents the agents that work in the New York FBI field office as they go about their business profiling possible terrorists and look into possible threats.

As they follow certain agents they reveal why they joined the FBI and how their role has changed since the 9/11 attacks, along with watching them as respond to incoming information.

It’s very similar to other law enforcement shows like Nightwatch, American Takedown, Keeping Canada Safe and the like. A programme where only if you have a proper interest in the subject it would appeal to you.

It’s a watchable enough first ep with has the slow build feel of other Scandinavian dramas like The Killing and Those Who Kill.

Falling Waters (USA)

Falling Waters (USA) – Starts 13th October – Renewed

Three strangers – a trend spotter who believes that she had a baby taken from her, a cop with a vegetive wife who is working on a homicide case, and a fixer for a banking firm – begin to have lucid dreams about events in their life they don’t recollect. Things are explained when the trend spotter meets up with an Icelandic entrepreneur, who reveals that everyone is connected in a mass collective dream, and that some people have the ability access anywhere within that state.

Barring the very final scene it does little to explain why the ability to access the complete dreamscape would be useful, it instead concentrates on explaining the premise, which is like a mix between Sense8 and Inception.

Probably worth another watch just to find out what the hell is going on.
