Life in Pieces

Show: Life in Pieces

Verdict: Pretty Good

How much I’ve seen: All of season 1, 13 episodes of season 2 (everything to date)

You should watch it if you like: Family sitcoms (Modern Family especially), Parenthood

Where you can stream it: The show’s on CBS, which is like FX and makes stuff impossible to stream. As far as I can tell, you can watch season 2 episodes 9 through 13 on CBS.com for free or you can sign up for their subscription service and watch the whole second season but not the first?

Battle Creek

Show: Battle Creek

Verdict: Pretty Good

How much I’ve seen: Everything (Cancelled after Season 1)

Where you can watch it: The last 4 episodes are on CBS.com

I really wanted to like this show and I did eventually. The first 4 or 5
episodes were not very good, but it picked up a bit towards the end.
Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough to save it; it’s already been cancelled.

You’d think if the creators of House and Breaking Bad made a show together, it’d
be a massive hit, but it just didn’t work in this case. I was disappointed to
find out that, beyond the opening credits and some B roll, none of the show was
actually filmed in Michigan.

I will say that the casting of the two main characters is absolutely perfect.
Dean Winters as a guy envious of the FBI agent next door, and Josh Duhamel as
squeaky-clean “Mr. Perfect” FBI agent is just exactly right. I can’t imagine
anyone being better for either part.
