“Mother Nature” | Black-ish
Once again fall TV continues to be extraordinary with Outlander hitting us all right in the feels, Madam Secretary debuting its fourth season with an amazing premiere, Chesapeake Shores ending its second season in the loveliest way, This is Us with another emotional episode, Brooklyn Nine-Nine tackling vital issues while remaining hysterical, The Mayor continuing to be a real treat, Riverdale premiering with an epic episode, and Superstore once again being the absolute best. On Once Upon A Time we said our final goodbye to Emma Swan as we watched her get her happy ending with Killian and their new baby. But Black-ish took me by surprise when it tackled postpartum beautifully with an exquisitely powerful episode filled with inimitable performances.
I appreciated Chesapeake Shores in its freshman year, but the show took an incredible turn this season making it that much more unforgettable and inimitable. Normally, while I’m under the belief that TV shows tend to flop in their second season making it the weakest one, Chesapeake Shores did the exact opposite, and I’m thankful for the team of writers who’ve chosen to tell stories through the eyes of the characters. I’ve always said that a TV show is much stronger when episodes are driven by the characters as opposed to the plot and in season two, we were given the chance to love the O’Brien clan even more than before as they told their realistic, encompassing stories through tremendous heart and innate growth.
