    Broadcast TV Law & Order: Organized Crime (NBC)

    I was really surprised and impressed with this premiere. While the cast of characters are all right out of the Law & Order catalog of archetypes, it completely obliterates the investigated, tried, and convicted conceit of the other series in the franchise. Going completely serialized, telling...

    Broadcast TV Debris (NBC)

    I'm a sucker for broadcast TV science fiction mysteries, and another debuts tonight on NBC at 10/9c. "When wreckage from a destroyed alien spacecraft scatters across the Western Hemisphere, it soon becomes apparent the pieces are messing with the laws of physics, changing lives in ways we can’t...

    Peacock Transplant (NBC)

    This is a Canadian medical drama originally made for CTV, which NBC picked up for its fall schedule when COVID-19 meant that it wouldn't have enough of its own programs to air. The story centers around Bashir Hamed, who proved his mettle as a wartime doctor back home in Syria, before he and his...

    Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist (NBC)

    Well, that was the best pilot I've seen in quite some time. While none of the songs are originals, the show understands what the point of songs in musicals is: to express the characters' inner thoughts and feelings. Strange choice by NBC, though, to air the pilot on a random Tuesday in early...

    Netflix Manifest (NBC/Netflix)

    The latest attempt at a high concept thriller to recapture the hold "Lost" held over audiences, NBC's new drama clearly owes a great debt to the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers...

    Rise (NBC)

    NBC looks to build on its "This Is Us" success with the latest feel-good drama from Jason Katims ("Friday Night Lights", "Parenthood") I'll be sticking with it because this premise is like catnip to me, but it was a pretty rough start. First, the good: This is a superb cast. There wasn't a...

    "Timeless" on NBC

    Well we thought it looked interesting when we saw the previews and it didn't let us down. It was a bit cheesy, but still, it's a lot better than the usual blah procedural crap that's on TV these days. Several twists and it's fun seeing the historical side of each story and how they weave it into...

The main cast is split roughly 50/50 between US and UK actors and characters. The UK side...
