Watch Live+Local on PureFlix

My Review of Live+Local
Review written by Alexis A. Goring

Live+Local is a fun new series that is available for viewing online via PureFlix. 

The series is about KHUGG which is a radio station that features “TnT In the Morning” which is a local radio program with very high ratings. The show explores the tensions between Tommy and Tina as they try to survive the ups and downs of working in the radio industry and trying to trust Jerry who is their new program director. Tommy is a veteran radio talk show host and Tina is the new star.

Dave Coulier (Americans may know him from the popular 90s show “Full House”) plays Tommy and Emily Pendergast plays Tina. They are excellent actors with perfect comedic timing. Pat Cashman plays Jerry and Kendra Ann Sherrill plays Lucy. Their roles are not as prominent but they make great supporting actors in this series.

For the purposes of this review, I watched Episode 5 of Live+Local. First, I’d like to describe this episode in the words of talking points from Momentum then I’ll share my thoughts (review).

According to Momentum, in this episode, “Tina gets a courtesy car from Integrity Motors, one of her sponsors dueling with Tommy’s sponsor Legacy Auto. The owner of KHUGG, Mr. Wilmont, decides to retire and Jerry’s search for a new owner begins. Tommy’s contract is expiring as ownership changes loom. Lucy discovers that Jerry Graves is Johnny Griffiths. He purchased another radio station and turned it into a sports station and is known as the “station killer.” Tina confronts Jerry over his alias and the sponsors. He admits that he was hired to tighten things up at the station. Jerry pressures Tina to sign her contract and calls her the future of KHUGG Jerry outs Tommy’s broadcasting past that he hasn’t shared with Tina.”

Now for my review:

While the storyline was definitely intriguing, it was the acting that won me over—especially the professional relationship between Tommy and Tina as they co-hosted the show! They were really funny together and while light-hearted, they also weren’t hesitant to be real with each other. They addressed conflict head-on and made sure they truly heard each other and worked together to create a solution to maintain their working relationship in a positive light.

Faith played a role throughout this episode with emphasis on the importance of prayer when you’re making big decisions and starting new projects. The pressing issue of worship styles—what’s acceptable and what’s not—was also addressed in this episode after a caller was seeking answers about where they should worship because they didn’t like the rock band concert style at their current church. I like how Tina handled that one.

Even the weather girl was in on sharing faith over the airwaves! Since it was a rainy day, she shared a Bible verse with her weather report: “I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.” Genesis 9:11 (NIV)

Overall, Episode 5 of Live+Local was a joy to watch! If you want a glimpse of what it’s about, watch this trailer: and if you want to watch the entire series, join PureFlix now to watch all of Live+Local.
