Two terrific shows wrap their seasons

In the midst of TV’s fall-season fuss, two of the best summer shows have season-finales.
Each show wraps up its second season Wednesday (Sept. 28) and has been renewed for a third. Each is worth catching … and worth finding previous episodes, via streamers. They are:
— “Resident Alien,” at 10 p.m. on Syfy, and then on Peacock. Now that he’s rescued the alien baby, Harry must decide whether to destroy all Earthlings. He kind of likes some of them.
— “Reservation Dogs” (shown here) on Hulu. The friends are finally ready for their pilgrimage to California. Read more…

Life transforms, among the wooly mammoths

(Interesting little story about the amputee actress from Michigan who co-stars in “La Brea,” which starts its second season Tuesday, Sept. 27, on NBC. This works any time, print or Web. As with any of my stories, feel free to share it with other Gannett papers in Michigan.)

As the second season starts (9 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27, on NBC and then on Peacock), some of that has changed. Izzy and her dad plunged into an alternate sinkhole, ending up in prehistoric Seattle.
“It was really weird just thinking about, like being in 10,000 BC and having a fake leg and all of the garbage that goes with it,” Gorecki said. Read more…

Best-bets for Sept. 27: a bright start for “Feds”

1) “The Rookie: Feds” debut, 10 p.m., ABC. A former guidance counselor, Simone (Niecy Nash, shown here) became the oldest grad at Quantico, the FBI school. After helping Nolan (who shows up briefly here) in two “Rookie” episodes, she’s ready something big. Instead, she’s pointed to a desk job. Naturally, she ducks it. This is a brisk, bright-eyed episode that lets Nash have fun, while catching some bad guys. Read more…
