Quick! What’s it About? Girl meets Galavant. Galavant goes full nut-job. She’s into it.
Whose Involved? GALAVANT ! (Aka Joshua Sasse) and a bunch of people who aren’t Galavant.
When will it Air? Tuesdays at 9 (After The Flash)
First Impression: Alright, cards on the table, I took all of one minute for me to realize I was going to watch every second of No Tomorrow and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. The trailer hits so many of my guilty pleasure buttons it was kind of scary. (I will never not love TV Characters doing Karaoke) Plus, Galavant is in it! Scientifically speaking, No Tomorrow features one more Galavant than every other show on TV, which means that No Tomorrow is now the best show on TV. That’s just science.
In all seriousness, No Tomorrow looks like a charming and funny, if forgettable show. Best case scenario, it fills my Pushing Daisies void for a few seasons, and worst case it becomes a member of the prestigious “Shows Only I loved” club*
Will I Watch? Every. Goddamn. Episode.

Quick! What’s it About? A police detective in 2016 discovers she is able to speak via a ham radio with her estranged father who died in 1996. Together, they solve crimes and f*ck up the timeline.
Whose Involved? The show stars Peyton List, Riley Smith, Devin Kelley and Mekhi Phifer. It’s apparently based on a movie that came out 16 years ago.
When will it Air? Wednesdays at 9.
First Impression: This looks really interesting. The show it reminds me most of is NBC’s Awake (An under-appreciated gem you should definitely check out). These types of stories are very tricky, and though the trailer does a nice job, I’m not convinced that Frequency has what it takes to pull it off. That said, there’s a ton to like in here, plus no one ever went wrong casting Mekhi Phifer.
Will I Watch? I’m on the fence, but a couple of good reviews would definitely get me on board.
*Other members include NBC’s Bent, A to Z, Hulu’s Battleground, Galavant (Obviously), USA’s Suits, and Netflix’s Sense8 and a whole bunch more.
