Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
Tonight, NBC kicks off the new drama The Village, which follows the intertwining lives of the residents of an apartment building in Brooklyn. Those living in The Village include single mother/nursing home physical therapist Sarah (Michaela McManus, SEAL Team, Aquarius) and her social activist teenage daughter Katie (Grace Van Dien, Greenhouse Academy), who seems to be making the same mistakes her mother did; law school student Gabriel and his grandfather, Pops (Dominic Chianese, The Sopranos), who recently lost his lifelong friend; immigrant Ava (Moran Atias, The Resident, Tyrant) and her young US-born son Sami, who are facing trouble with ICE; and wounded veteran, Staff Sergeant Nick Porter (Warren Christie, The Resident, Alphas), The Village’s newest resident and bartender. Taking care of the building and its residents are Village super Ron (Frankie Faison, Banshee) and his wife of 32-years, Patricia (Lorraine Toussaint, Into the Badlands), as well as neighborhood cop Ben (Jerod Haynes, Southside with You).
Based on tonight’s episode, the series looks like a solid “family” drama, with some emotional and unexpected twists. This isn’t your conventional family – this group of neighbors have formed their own family, coming together to help one another through the good times and bad. The Village seems like a perfect fit in the post This is Us time slot, as I suspect there will be a lot of crossover in the audience.
On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” Sarah, a single mom, navigates life with her teenage daughter; Ava is thrown into crisis when she’s arrested by ICE; Nick returns home from war to discover everything he’s left behind; Ron and Patricia work to keep the Village family intact.
Meet the residents of The Village tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.
I’ll also be watching/recording American Housewife, The Kids Are Alright, black-ish, The Rookie, This Is Us, MasterChef Junior, Mental Samurai, The Flash, and Miracle Workers.
