Securing Crime Scene Kitchen, Investing In Small Fortune

Brittany Luse on Crime Scene Kitchen, Small Fortune, a Derry Girls Canon entry, and much more.

Writer and co-host of The Nod Brittany Luse joins us for a double shot of summer TV fare, starting with NBC’s well-hosted but incorrectly constructed Small Fortune. We like the dioramas; we’re not sure about the durability of the games (or future guests). Then we ducked under the yellow tape to look at FOX’s Crime Scene Kitchen, which isn’t as bad as Sarah expected, but also isn’t as good as it could be. Will any of us keep watching either of these? Is Curtis Stone the Joel Kinnaman of celebrity chefs? And did we actually invoke Quibi…favorably? Next we went Around The Dial with the Friends reunion, Legendary, Married At First Sight, Love After Lockup (instead of Who Killed Little GrΓ©gory?, but watch ’em both!), and Bad Batch. Kimberly hoped her Derry Girls Canon submission would have the luck of the Irish before Firefly Lane won and Alec Baldwin lost (…twice), and then we transitioned between scenes with a few bars of Game Time. Pour yourself a cup of lemon chiffon pie — it’s an all-new Extra Hot Great!
