Let’s talk about Monday night’s TV!

L.A.’S FINEST: This show has had such a weird journey from NBC pilot to Spectrum series to now a second run on Fox.

Cop procedurals are going to be an interesting thing to witness when television comes back with actually new content, because things will have to change. In many ways, this pilot, which is only a couple of years old, feels like a relic both in the sheer amount of people together in LA (my goodness, I miss going out) and the cop-gone-rogue narrative.

But it’s also great to have two women of color front and center, being badass, and supporting each other. We still aren’t getting enough of that on television.

FILTHY RICH: I love a good soapy drama, but this wasn’t quite campy enough for me? I’m hoping episode 2 draws me in more.

LOVE ISLAND: Oy, what a mess. Cely believing Johnny is going to backfire, either with the game itself or when she gets out of Vegas and actually sees what happened in Casa Amor. And even if he convinces her to not watch, hopefully people in her life tell her HE WAS LYING TO HER. Ugh.

I’m curious how these two new girls shake things up. Caleb is the only one right now I’d place an actual bet to not be intrigued at all, but this season has certainly showed that the strongest couples can break with the smallest bit of actual pressure.

(I AM surprised the producers didn’t keep Mackenzie around to reunite with Connor in person since it was so, so, so clear they were going down that path.)

MANHUNT: DEADLY GAMES: This is another Spectrum series that wound up on TV thanks to COVID shutting down the industry for months, but in many ways it feels chillingly timely with how a life can be absolutely turned upside down due to law enforcement overreach/an incorrect assumption. The sequence around the bombing was genuinely upsetting, but Cameron Britton is so good.
