True story from the 19th century about an English actress who marries a US plantation owner. Appalled by slavery, she dedicates her life to oppose it and her husband and help her husband's slaves in any way possible, including escaping.
An Asian-American actor, living in Los Angeles, is forced to reconsider his roots as well as the possibilities afforded him by his present situation after suddenly inheriting his grandmother's home in Shanghai.
"In Case of Emergency" which started earlier this year on ABC, seems to be doing well, it looked good from the previews and I just started watching it I've seen the last two episodes and I'm impressed to say the least. It centers around four friends in their 30's in L.A. that have the you guessed it relationships and just everyday problems of life, but yet this program has plenty of humor and sexy scenes and doesn't try to take things serious. The cast is all A list TV veterans and B list movie veterans, you have David Arquette as a ex business man who's now an emergency room assistant who's love struck on a cute doctor played just fine by Lori Loughlin. The Arquette character has two friends both depressed and just trying to figure out the world as Greg Germann and Jonathan Silverman as corporate guys needing new loves. Also spice and everything nice is added by a female friend from high school who was a brain, but now works in a full-release massage parlor, and wow Kelly Hu is just fabulous as this character. So far the first two episodes have been hot and steamy with sexy love scenes thanks to ageless and sexy goddess Jane Seymour. I just love the story with Seymour guest starring as the mother of Arquette's character who's seducing his younger friend the Silverman character. It's nice to see Jane back at work hopefully she becomes a regular on this series, her stay could make this a hit and make ABC keep it. "In Case of Emergency" is a new show that's very good and young audiences should watch because of the humor and sexy relationships, showing that humor can help friends get over their problems, and that everyday life doesn't have to be so serious.
