The CW’s new hit series The Flash, based on the DC Comics’ character of the same name had its first season finale this past Tuesday; ending with some unexpected and surprising outcomes. The Reverse-Flash, Eobard Thawne was thwarted thanks Eddie’s sacrifice/suicide, but Flash was still left to save Central City and the rest of the world from a growing black hole! We have no doubt he will wipe the black hole out of existence, but what does the Season 2 hold for The Fastest Man Alive? According to the show’s creators, Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti, there will be more Speedsters and Super Villains to see and contend with.
If Loving You Is Wrong begins with a drive by from hell as Julius’s goons shoot up the Burger Joint and hit Edward in the process. Lushion manages to take two of them out as they crash into another car. Quan walks aways from the crime scene smirking at Joey. Natalie and Joey find Lushion applying pressure to Edward’s wound. They call the police and Esperanza responds. She immediately becomes distraught and heads to the hospital to see him. Elsewhere, Travis stops by Kelly’s job to surprise her with a basket of lunch. She rebuffs his advances, so he decides to try and serenade her. She agrees to have lunch with him to keep her from getting fired over his shenanigans.
From the pages of a Neil Gaiman comic (creator of Sandman) comes a different twist on a tale concerning the Prince of Darkness in the form of Fox’s new show, Lucifer. Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) has become dreary of and uninterested in Hell, and its workings, and opts to move to Los Angeles in his “retirement.” He seems to be living the high life until one of “belongings” is gunned down in front of him. Oddly, he cares for the woman and begins to help an LAPD detective (Lesley-Ann Brandt) track down her killers. However, his one good act and retirement seems to have upset the powers of Hell, and in his absence are threatening to invade the Earth. Will evil incarnate finally do the right thing? After all he is Satan…
This show looks amazing. The casting for Lucifer is nothing short of awesome. This is how you would/should expect The Devil to look and be like–handsome, charming, tempting, and seemingly flawless. He has a pivotal role to play in the battle between good and evil and seems to be sitting it out. I have never seen a Lucifer you would dare to like or even empathize with. Good writing and excellent story lines are the key to making this show a hit. It is definitely another “unnatural creature who falls for a policewoman” show. However, this one will do what Supernatural, Sleepy Hollow, Forever, and Bones failed to do–outright engross us!
You can catch Lucifer when it debuts sometime in 2016. Let’s shoot for midseason on another show’s Winter Break. Until then!
Veteran actress Meagan Good has signed on as the female lead in Fox network’s drama pilot “Minority Report” which is a sequel to the Steven Spielberg-directed movie set 10 years after the end of Precrime in D.C. One of the three Precogs, Dash, struggles to lead a “normal” human life, but remains haunted by visions of the future, when he meets a detective, Lara Vega (Good), who’s not afraid to break a few rules. Haunted by her past, Vega just might help him find a purpose to his gift.
I am so excited for this new show to air – one because I think Meagan Good is a great actress and two because I still have not gotten over the end of Deception. Who’s going to be watching Minority Report with me? Show of hands!

Morris Chestnut just keeps at it! The serial heart throb gets better with age and keeps climbing the latter of success. The television world is a-buzzing with news of Fox picking up a new drama for its 2015-2016 television line up, Rosewood, starring Mr. Chestnut himself! According to Lovebscott.com, the series is described as a medical procedural, Morris will play Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, Jr., a gifted pathologist who can read living and dead bodies like a book. Jaina Lee Ortiz will play the cynical female detective he often works with.
The show sounds intriguing, but is reminiscent of Bones, iZombie, Forever and a number of other medical/mystery/drama shows. It will be interesting to see the spin they put on this duo. Side note, did anyone else think racial drama when they heard of the title? Think of the movie Rosewood! Yeah, Fox might never want to go there. Nevertheless, Morris is an amazing actor and I am sure he would not be tied to any project that is a cliche, or one he does not believe in. He is joining Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard on Fox, and honestly it is a good look. Lord knows the network, and television in general, could use more diversity. Be sure you tune in! #BlackTVMatters
