If you’re anything like me, you’ve got your TV shows that you watch religiously. For me, that’s shows like Survivor, Dance Moms, and The MTV Challenges. But I have so many shows that I like to watch, thank goodness for DVR, huh? When I have a day off, I binge watch a bunch of TV!
Well, Fox Network came out with a bunch of new shows for their Fall line up this year, and one that caught my attention was a show called “Red Band Society”. If you’ve read/seen “It’s Kind of a Funny Story”, it’s similar to that.
“Red Band Society is about a group of teens in the pediatric ward of Los Angeles’ Ocean Park Hospital find comfort in one another. Mexican-born Jordi, 16, crossed the border for treatment. His roommate, Leo, at the hospital for over a year, is starting to lose his way. Cystic fibrosis prompts Leo’s best friend, Dash, to live each day as though it’s his last. Emma, Leo’s off-and-on girlfriend, has an eating disorder. Kara is a cheerleader with a heart problem, and her roommate, Charlie, is 12 and in a coma. Dr. Jack McAndrew and Nurses Jackson and Dobler make up their medical team.”
The first episode premiered on September 17, 2014.
Red Band Society has quickly become one of my favorites and I’m only on the fifth episode. It’s pretty close to Freaks and Geeks as far as my favorites go. I think it’s one of the best shows that Fox has aired in quite awhile, and it seemed as if they may have thought so too considering they cancelled a few of the shows on their Fall line up after only two or three episodes aired. But, to my dismay, it has been brought to my attention that Red Band Society has been chopped. Fox cancelled it, with the 10th (and “final”) episode airing on December 3, 2014. Fox actually ordered 13 episodes, so fans are hoping the final three episodes will air sometime this year!
You can stream all 10 episodes of RBS online here at fox.com, and there is a petition to “Keep RBS on the Air” but maybe if there are enough signatures, Fox will decide to air the final three episodes and bring it back for a second season? You can sign that here.
Let me know if this sounds like your kinda show, and if you watch it/have watched it, let me know what you think down below in the comments, or hit me up on twitter @x0gabby!
Until next time – stay glamorous y’all. xo
