Jenny’s Choice

I’m still not feeling great, but I did want to highlight the premiere of
68 Whiskey
tonight on Paramount. This comes from Ron Howard’s Imagine Television Studios and follows a multicultural band of Army medics stationed in Afghanistan on a base nicknamed “The Orphanage.” Together, the medics navigate a dangerous and sometimes absurd world, relying on comradery, various vices and, occasionally, a profound sense of purpose to carry them through. I really like the cast – most especially Beth Riesgraf (Leverage, Lovestruck, Insatiable, Complications) & Derek Theler (Baby Daddy, Marvel’s New Warriors).

It also stars Sam Keeley, Jeremy Tardy (Dear White People, Marvel’s New Warriors), Gage Golightly (Red Oaks, Heartland, The End of the World As We Know It), Cristina Rodlo (Too Old to Die Young), Lamont Thompson (Hell on Earth), Nicholas Coombe (Imaginary Mary), Aaron Glenane (Snowpiercer), Artur Benson, Jade Albany (The Naked Director, The Right Stuff), Linc Hand, & Usman Ally (Lovestruck, On Becoming a God in Central Florida).

This should be a mix of intense drama and irreverent humor, which usually makes for good TV. And I like the premise of the Army medics stationed overseas. I wonder if this will be a bit like a more dramatic version of M.A.S.H. from the 70s, which was set during the Korean War. I didn’t watch that one – I was only born in 1976, and I never did watch reruns – but it was hugely popular. We’ll see if that similar premise goes over well now.

On tonight’s episode, “Buckley’s Goat,” Roback convinces Davis to join him in a get-rich-quick scheme, which lands them in serious trouble; Alvarez gets some upsetting news; Roback and Durkin continue their secret affair; Petrocelli finds a new friend in a lost goat.

Meet these new Army medics and see their temporary home of the Orphanage tonight on Paramount at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago Med, The Goldbergs, Schooled, Chicago Fire, Criminal Minds, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Single Parents, Chicago PD, S.W.A.T., & Stumptown.
