    But… did it have to be the PADRES? 🙂

    Probably the pilot that surprised me most – excited to see everyone’s reactions!

    Very excited for this. Every review (good, in between & negative) single out Bunbury’s performance. Gosselaar is also getting some good ink. Regardless of its awards prospects this feels fresh and I’m ready to stan.

    I am wondering if they chose the Padres because San Diego hosted the All-Star Game, also broadcast by Fox, where the character was “introduced.”

    Maybe. I was sort of joking… since I’m a Giants fan. The Padres are last in our division. But I may check it out, being a baseball fan, and all.

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/pitch-how-dan-fogelman-is-892653 Dan Fogelman quote “Petco is such a beautiful stadium and a great place to be shooting. We wanted to do it locally. The team felt like a team that would be friendly toward us and they’ve been incredible thus far. MLB had suggested numerous teams and the Padres was one that we thought would be really excited to have us and a good partnership for us.”

    Okay, Mr. Fogelman. That’s a plot twist you actually earned for a change. Best new pilot of the season and full-season watch.

    I don’t know…okay, it’s only the pilot, so it has to set everything up, but it seems that it’s getting away from the core subject (for example, the owner telling somebody else (the general manager?) to draw up a short list of candidates to replace the manager). This, in my opinion, is what condemned shows like Terra Nova.

    I also wonder how many times Ginny is going to be seen pitching in away games – and how many of those won’t be at Dodger Stadium or Chase Field (Phoenix).

    Then again… Whatatwist!

    I know nothing about Baseball, but this is my favourite new show of the season so far.

    Kylie Bunbury gives the best performance of any newcomer so far too. The premise offers a great potential which can air on the non-‘soapy’ side of drama.

    There are some clunkier moments (sacking the boss already, the Gerard Butler comment), but the rest carries it through nicely.

    I hope it doesn’t descend into a show where Ginny sleeps with the captain of the team and that’s what it becomes focused on. It is a show that is being bold in its statement, and it could have a great powerful message if handled correctly.

    Above all, it is also brilliant entertainment.

    Very emotional game night on Monday as the Marlins pay tribute to their fallen pitcher, José Fernandez. Tough, but necessary to watch.

    Episode Title: “The Interim”

    Synopsis: Ginny tries to fit in with the team, but a sexist comment that Al made about her years ago resurfaces; Mike accepts the death of his career and the end of his marriage; Blip deals with the repercussions of Evelyn defending him to the media.
