Let’s talk about Monday night’s TV!

THE VOICE: Look, sometimes Blake doesn’t know super popular songs or references, but I think we’ve found a new benchmark—he didn’t know John Legend’s OSCAR-WINNING SONG “Glory.” HOW?????

Victor Solomon was my favorite performance of the night, and one of the only contestants to really justify the risk of singing a coach’s song for them in the Blinds.

Outside of that, I was a little underwhelmed with many of the contestants? (And that’s not normally my feeling with a premiere for this show.) It felt like a couple of contestants quasi-fell apart once they knew they were through. Alas. Here’s hoping the next group is stronger.

DEBRIS: Yeah, so I loved this show. Of course, there’s the basic element: it feels like FRINGE + X-FILES, which, duh, that is of course entirely in my wheelhouse.

But I also thought Jonathan Tucker and Riann Steele were fantastic together; plus, I appreciated that Bryan and Finola had a comfortable partnership, not immediately infused with mistrust or butting heads. There are secrets being kept, but it feels relatively fresh to find a pair like this already deep into their investigation rather than just starting out. I’m so curious to see where they go from here.

And, boy, it was gorgeous. The woman floating away to the vortex of bodies? Incredible. (Okay, maybe it looks weird when it’s written out. If you saw the episode, you know what I mean.)

I’m also really intrigued to see what the show feels like week-to-week. This piece was clearly impacted by grief, but the promo indicates some insane shenanigans are to come…
