90 Day Fiance: The Single Life (Discovery+)
Yes, the franchise is still expanding, but this new series is probably the most unique spin-off yet.
Featuring the likes of Big Ed Brown, Molly Hopkins, and Brittany Banks, it focuses on these singles as they navigate new relationships.
We’ve watched the first episode, and it’s fun!
8/7c Batwoman (The CW)
Gotham’s getting crowded as the art of “Jack Napier” (aka The Joker) becomes significant in the search for Kate.
Alice’s mission begins to take on a personal twist.
Meanwhile, Ryan is pressured into a team-up she’s not keen on. Will Team Batwoman 2.0 survive the collaboration?
8/7c The Equalizer (CBS)
We’re continuing our journey with the Equalizer.
McCall’s latest mission finds her helping a prisoner who does not trust the law, and we can probably expect lots of action.
The big question is: will you be tuning in again after the premiere?
9/8c When Calls the Heart (Hallmark)
Our favorite Canadian town, Hope Valley, is back to answer the burning question viewers have had since When Calls the Heart Season 7 Episode 10 — What’s everyone been doing since we last saw them?
Oh, of course, we know that’s not the burning question. So, will Elizabeth choose Nate or Lucas?
We sure as heck have picked a side, so we’re crossing all of our fingers until she makes a firm decision.

8/7c Superman & Lois (The CW)
The CW returns to Smallville in this Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch-led spinoff that manages to serve as a unique take on the superhero and his wife.
It could probably be compared to Friday Night Lights in that it’s a family drama, but this is not like anything you’ve seen on The CW before.
The production values alone make this a worthwhile watch.
Wednesday, February 24
Ginny & Georgia (Netflix)
Has Netflix found another hit in Ginny & Georgia? The series has been compared to Gilmore Girls and focuses on the relationship between a mother and daughter.
The series picks up with them moving to a new town, meaning they have new people in their orbit. The cast includes a mix of veterans and newbies, including
Brianne Howey, Antonia Gentry, Diesel La Torraca, Jennifer Robertson, Felix Mallard, Sara Waisglass, Scott Porter, Raymond Ablack, and Mason Temple.
We will have a full review early next week, so stay tuned!
Baroness von Sketch Show (IFC/AMC+)
It’s been hard for you guys to get on board with this hilarious Canadian import, but you get one last chance on cable before you’re down to watching it for the first time on AMC+ only.
The brilliant women of Baroness von Sketch Show had five bonus episodes tucked away in their pockets, and we finally get to see them.

So how do two busy people manage to have a family, too? You’re about to find out. And guys? It’s GOOD!

The United States vs Billie Holiday (Hulu)
This theatrical film is making its bow on Hulu, as we’re all the luckier for it. The benefits of COVID!
Andra Day stars as the sultry blues singer in this biographical piece that goes farther than her music.
After Holiday’s tumultuous affair with a federal agent, she was targeted by the federal government in a quest to racialize the war on drugs. That’s something we don’t often hear about, but we’ll see how it affects her career in this film directed by Lee Daniels.
We’re heading toward the finish line of WandaVision, meaning that we will finally get the answers we’ve wanted all season long.
Yes, we started to get somewhere with the most recent episode, but what’s on tap next?
Tune in to find out.
