The Voice All Rise Songland

“Dancing at Los Angeles”– With Los Angeles under a mandatory shelter-in-place order and trials piling up, Judge Benner authorizes Judge Carmichael to preside over a virtual bench trial, a case regarding a dispute between brothers over a car, on the virtually produced, timely episode of ALL RISE, Monday, May 4 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. While Emily represents the defendant, Kurt Beto (Mo McRae), Mark represents the prosecution, marking the first time he tries a case in Lola’s “court.” Also, Mark and Quinn (Lindsey Gort) explore how to continue their romantic relationship while quarantined in separate homes; Judge Benner oversees court from afar and learns to cook; Sara finds temporary work as a food delivery driver; Luke and Emily’s relationship is taxed by separation; and germaphobe and type-A Sherri contends with the new world (dis)order. Throughout it all, unknown dance party DJ Tailwind (Dorian Missick) offers a comforting, irreverent voice for all Angelenos in lockdown by sharing his music and thoughts via his laptop at home.

Let’s talk about Monday night’s TV!

THE VOICE: I’m really impressed with the video quality of the show, and it did feel like the singers were performing relatively unpolished. It was a nice touch to see the coaches reacting to the performances as they happened.

However, yikes to the filters. The singers are talented enough and didn’t need the weird—distracting—extra elements. I really hope next week’s performance show is more stripped down.

ALL RISE: I can’t believe Mark and Lola’s first time facing off wasn’t even in-person! In some ways, it’s absolutely perfect/fitting (and probably led to a little less shenanigans than in-person), but it’s also crazy it happened this way.

It was an incredibly ambitious, but believable episode. Not many shows could fundamentally pull off a believable quarantine episode—so many are set in essential fields, so the characters wouldn’t be home—but the show was fun and felt naturally in the world.

SONGLAND: There were other good songs, but it was very clear “Girls Like Me” was the right song for Martina McBride. But I really do hope the songwriters get to work with her in the future, like she indicated she wanted.
