The Emmy-nominated reality series opens its 10th addictive season with a two-hour premiere devoted to Andy and Becky, a couple who defiantly declare their right to live as they choose, even when that takes place inside a hoard that weighs about 250 tons (not a typo). Now they’re both embroiled in a battle with their local city government that could end with them both in jail and losing their colossally cluttered home.
“American Garage” is the first of a new two-part episode that “Garage Rehab” fans have been looking forward to this season, because it packs an unusually strong emotional wallop. The situation finds Richard Rawlings and his team taking on what is almost certainly their most meaningful project to date: rehabbing a floundering non-profit garage where military veterans receive training for new careers in automobile repair.
This new six-episode docu-series takes viewers inside the world of Canadian chiropodist Jonathan Tomines, a foot specialist whose wildly successful YouTube channel follows him as he treats a range of sometimes shocking foot problems for patients who come to him from far and wide. Tomines, who follows in his father’s professional footsteps, says he has treated roughly 5,000 patients suffering from problems ranging from toe fungus and ingrown toenails to warts and embedded foreign objects. Each episode features four such patients.
Max (Ryan Eggold) starts to form a bond with the other patients who are undergoing chemotherapy with him, but a conversation triggers something that leads him to struggle with his own reality in a new episode called “Croaklahoma.” Elsewhere, Reynolds (Jocko Sims) has a hard time handling a personal matter involving a patient’s family, while Iggy (Tyler Labine) struggles with an epiphany regarding his daughter. Janet Montgomery, Freema Agyeman and Anupam Kher also star.
In a new episode called “Abduction,” Dr. Hynek (Aidan Gillen) is drawn into an offbeat case when a man arrives at Blue Book headquarters with this wife, claiming that they were abducted by aliens. Moreover, the man intends to hold Hynek and Quinn (Michael Malarkey) hostage until they’re able to provide some answers. This episode is inspired by the Betty and Barney Hill abduction case, which previously was made into the 1975 TV movie “The UFO Incident” starring Estelle Parsons and James Earl Jones.
