Thank God it’s Friday. It’s been a long week, so I’m more than ready for the weekend. To start that off, there’s a great night of television, so check out our recommendations. 🙂
Grimm was great last week. A female soldier was raped overseas by some men from a private military contractor. She suddenly showed up in their lives years later, and then suddenly, the men started turning up dead. It was one of the coolest Wesen’s we’ve seen, in my opinion, kind of a lion/scorpion hybrid thing. In the end, it turned out the woman’s commanding officer was dying and decided that he was going out on a high note and making up for not being able to protect her by killing the men who’d assaulted her. Then he put himself in the line of fire with the last man, who killed him just as Nick and Hank came in. On a much more fun note, Rosalee went to visit her mom for the first time in a long time, and she took Monroe with her. It was pretty awkward, given that her relationships with her mom and sister are very strained, but it was cute, too—especially when she started to ring the doorbell, but hesitated, and Monroe physically took her finger and helped her push it.
On tonight’s episode, “The Wild Hunt,” Nick and Hank investigate a cop killer who scalps his victims. Meanwhile, Juliette begins to communicate with Nick’s mom via email and Adalind finds herself much closer to delivering her baby than she previously thought. Elsewhere, Monroe’s parents (guest stars Dee Wallace and Chris Mulkey) decide to surprise him and Rosalee with an early arrival to Portland after learning some exciting news.
Find out how the other “meet the parents” goes tonight on NBC at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Bones, Last Man Standing, The Neighbors, Enlisted, & Raising Hope.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.
Bones is still one of my favorite shows, and it continues to deliver for me this season. Last week’s episode was super emotional, when Brennan examined Wendell’s x-rays of his broken arm and found that he had a rare form of bone cancer. After Wendell found out, his first instinct was to leave and travel the world, but after taking a moment to think, he decided he wanted to stay and fight. Brennan and Bones told him that they’d be there for the whole process. I’m very invested in this story line because Wendell is by far one of my favorite interns.
The case of the week followed a struggling country singer that was murdered just after learning that he was indeed a big star, but only in the Philippines. There were lots of suspects, from his landlord to the head of his record label who had been ripping him off, but in the end, it was actually the landlord’s bed buddy. He killed him because he was jealous that she had feelings for the struggling artist. Sweets gave her a copy of a song that the victim had been writing for her, and it was so special.
On tonight’s episode, “The Master in the Shop,” the team discovers the body of a disliked chess player laying amidst pig slop, and Sweets goes undercover as a champion chess player.
To see if Sweets can help the team get a checkmate, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching Grimm, Helix, and Enlisted.
The Neighbors continues to be a lot of fun in its second season—it’s a shame the ratings aren’t reflecting that. Last week, it was the Weavers’ 25th high school reunion, and Marty’s old band was asked to play the event. When one of the members couldn’t make it, Marty had plans to take center stage, but Larry’s surprisingly amazing musical talents outshined him. Meanwhile, the kids tried to get Amber and Reggie back together.
Friday is a tough night for TV—I really wish The Neighbors was back on Wednesdays, instead of Super Fun Night! I really hope the writers get Amber and Reggie back together soon, because if the ratings don’t get any better, the season finale could likely end up being the series finale.
On tonight’s episode, “Man, Actually,” Debbie goes back to school, but struggles to fend off a flirtatious professor. Meanwhile, Amber mourns her relationship with Reggie, who has emotional problems of his own when his and Larry’s Zabvronian male cycles are synchronized.
See how Debbie handles the naughty professor tonight on ABC at 8:31/7:31c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Grimm, Bones, Enlisted, Raising Hope, Helix, and Banshee.
