I saw a review that called it a Tasmanian Twin Peaks, and while after four episodes I see what they mean, I'd also say it's a much less blatant weirdness than Twin Peaks...
'filthy rich' - fox
'Deadwater Fell' - U.K.
Stars David Tennant.
The first episode is available by wizardry.
68 Whiskey - Paramount Network - Jan 15
All returning or returned this week for a new series (available via alternate means):
Death in Paradise
Sounds like close to the premise of the 2011 TV series "Combat Hospital," a joint US/Canada combat hospital in Afghanistan. It only lasted 13 episodes.
Sounds like a modern version of M*A*S*H. My son was a 68 Whiskey Fobbit in Afghanistan and I've only heard a few of the stories. I'm sure he'll be watching this.
'The Outsider' - HBO
Based on the novel by Stephen King.
Medical Police on Netflix. The cast intrigued me (although the big names are all listed as shearing in 1 episode each). Strange spoof, but not clear of what. Reminded me a lot of Angie Tribeca. If that's not your strike zone I'd pass.
It’s a spin-off of Children's Hospital so if you like this you’d probably like that as well.
As far as I can tell after watching a few episodes, I would say it's simply a continuation of "Children's Hospital" under a different name. To be a spin-off it would have different characters, location or something else significantly changed. It's pretty much like when "These Friends of Mine" became "Ellen", "Love and Curses" became "She-Wolf of London", or "Madame Secretary" (almost) became "Madame President".
Angie Tribeca would be a good comparison. I haven't seen the new one yet, but i enjoyed Children's Hospital which was goofy and silly, AND, made me laugh. First rule of comedy for me is that it's supposed to make me laugh. It's in the Airplane / Naked Gun vein.
I was totally ignoring this because I thought it was some medical drama like CSI. Thanks for the trailer. I'm totally IN!
Never heard of Children's Hospital. I have to check that out as well.
It was (I believe) on Adult Swim maybe 5 or 6 years ago.
sorry. what's an adult swim?
Cartoon Network's nighttime programming.
Children Hospital has some AMAZING episodes. Only like 12 minutes each. Got a little long in the tooth towards the final 2-3 seasons but I recall a few early on episodes having some amazing laugh out loud moments.
"Children's Hospital" is available on Hulu as well as Adult Swim. I find the 15 minute format works really well for this kind of comedy. (The Dumont network had a few 15 minute shows back in the early days of broadcast TV, but I don't think the economics worked out.)
Wow, that's really going back some! Before my time, but if I recall, weren't the original Honeymooners episodes on Dumont in the mid 50s?
