Why Us comedy Reaper deserves more love

21 August 2015 2:44 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

American comedy Reaper was the slacker Supernatural. With great writing, great jokes and Ray Wise, what more could you want?

At the time of writing, the American television networks’ ‘fall’ season of 2015 is a month or so around the corner. It’s still a month until Doctor Who comes back, and worryingly close to that time of the year when The X-Factor is gobbling up Saturday nights around the UK. Essentially, we reckon you could be looking for a new show to binge-watch right about now.

To help you out, the Article Ideas Team here at Geek Towers fired up their Underappreciated TV Shows That Need More Love Machine (patent pending) and cooked you up a recommendation - Reaper.

‘What the frick is Reaper?’, you may or may not be thinking. To the former camp – those with a joyous first watch ahead of them – Reaper was a supernatural comedy hosted »

The Astronaut Wives Club: Season One Ratings

19 June 2015 1:28 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The last time ABC tried a retro series revolving around a group of ladies -- Pam Am -- it was a ratings disappointment and was cancelled after one season. Will The Astronaut Wives Club be a different story or the same old tune? Cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.

Review: Style and performances keep ABC's 'Astronaut Wives Club' watchable

18 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Too little too late, but ABC has finally found the perfect companion piece for "Pan Am." A bright-and-glossy dose of '60s nostalgia mixed with easily digestible proto-feminism, ABC's "Astronaut Wives Club" premieres on Thursday (June 18) night, more than three years after "Pan Am" was cancelled and I suspect they're likely to be remembered in the same way: Period dramas with high production values, a fantastic cast that ABC will look back at yearningly and unrealized creative potential obscuring otherwise solid storytelling. Is there a hypothetical TV series about the wives of the Mercury astronauts that's more than a slightly superficial, slightly choppy and slightly misfocused showcase for fine performances and some snazzy retro-style? Absolutely, but there's still some virtue to this sort of watchable, somewhat nourishing summer entertainment, even in a landscape that's overflowing with summer viewing options. Thursday's exposition-heavy premiere episode begins in 1961 with Louise Shepard (Dominique McElligott »

The Astronaut Wives Club Review: The Mercury 7’s Desperate Housewives

17 June 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

What makes a great summer series? Something flashy, breezy, easy to Dv-r and binge at a later date, perhaps. Beach reading, but on your TV. In fact, it really deserves a separate scale. The epitome of a great summer show may be Fox’s The O.C., which ran in the mid-aughts, and came (in part) from Stephanie Savage. Savage also has developed ABC’s new drama The Astronaut Wives Club, and with it, another well-suited summer show (though one that's still looking to ignite). The series, based on a book by Lily Koppel, details the home lives of the Mercury 7, a true-to-life group of men (including John Glenn, played here by Sam Reid) who were chosen by Nasa for their fledgling space program in the early 1960s. The families were also heavily managed for appearances, with deals made with press outlets like Life magazine to convince the American public that »

Jessica Simpson Shares Sweet Snap with Hubby Eric Johnson on Anniversary

22 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Jessica Simpson has a lot to celebrate!  The blonde beauty shared a ton of new photos via Instagram on Thursday, from her five year anniversary celebration with hubby Eric Johnson.  In one photo, the mother-of-two is pictured with the former footballer while the pair is out to dinner.  "The sexiest day of my life was 5yrs ago when Johnson came into my home #MAY21," Simpson captioned the candid snap.  In a second photo, Jess and Eric pose with their two pals, Bret Harrison and Lauren Harrison. "Fortunate for these two @laurenz422 and @bretharrison for the unexpected intro #MAY21 #Johnson," the 34-year-old posted with the pic.  The fashion mogul was a bridesmaid at Lauren and Bret's 2012 nuptials -- Harrison was also Jessica's assistant at the time.  Jess and Eric said "I do" last July, and the cute couple already has two adorable kiddies together, Maxwell, 3 and Ace, 22-months.  "Back home to »

Jessica Simpson's Latest Instagram Photo Poses So Many Questions

22 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jessica Simpson is in love, and she doesn't care who knows it. The singer celebrated an anniversary with her husband, Eric Johnson, on Thursday by posting a sexy photo on Instagram. And while it's just the latest in her usual steamy social media snaps, it was what she said that really caught our attention. In the black-and-white photo, captioned, "The sexiest day of my life was 5yrs ago when Johnson came into my home #MAY21," Jessica cozies up to her man in a restaurant booth. It's unclear exactly what significance May 21 has to the couple, but Jessica's caption implies a number of things. Is it a metaphor for the first time they met? Did Eric just walk up to her house and go inside? Was it the first time they kissed? Was it their first date? There are so many unanswered questions! While we may never know what Jessica meant, »

Astronaut Wives Club” is finally ready to blast off at ABC, with the network announcing on Monday a summer premiere date for the new drama.

Originally scheduled to bow last summer and then pushed to spring for retooling and some cast changes, “Astronaut Wives Club” will air Thursdays at 8 p.m. starting June 18. That launch date will allow the network to promote the series during coverage of the NBA Finals, which will occupy Thursdays earlier in the month.
