This Is Us: 1×01 – Pilot

The Good Place: 1×01 – Pilot

β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½ I’m not a big fan of comedy but I couldn’t resist checking this out because of Kristen Bell. The pilot was mildly funny but I prefer episodes 1×03-1×04 with the whole Jianyu backstory which made me laugh!

β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½ Agent Luke Alvez joins the BAU team, which is tasked with capturing a killer who escaped prison with 13 other convicts. 13 serial killers escaped and they only have 5 left to catch at the season opening?Β  That’s a bit disappointing.
