I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to the weekend because this week has been a little insane; school functions, doctors’ appointments, and sick kids — this mom is ready for a break. What better way to start this weekend off right than to check out some great television, so check out our recommendations.
Constantine is a show that I do not watch by myself or in the dark because it is incredibly freaky in my opinion—good but freaky. The demons and spirits are quite unnerving, so I’m more than willing to DVR this and wait to watch with someone. Last week, we watched as John investigated the death of a music producer after he listened to the record Acetate, which turned out to be cursed by the sounds of the leagues of demons claiming a soul. It was some pretty creepy stuff, but in the end, Constantine did an exorcism on the record and sent the demons back to hell. We were also introduced to Papa Midnite, a voodoo priest who was out for his own personal gain and no other reason. At one point, he even cuffed John up, cut him, and left him to bleed to death. I sense that Midnite is going to be an ongoing thorn in John’s side, but I look forward to more battles like these ones.
On tonight’s episode, “A Feast of Friends,” when Constantine’s old friend Gary Lester accidentally releases a powerful demon in Atlanta, John is forced to determine exactly what he is prepared to sacrifice in his battle with the underworld.
To see how John decides what’s worth giving up, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching Hollywood Film Awards, Grimm, and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.
Last week on Z Nation, it was all about Mack and Addy. The couple had found a peaceful spot in the woods, and Addy wanted to stay there, but Mack wanted to get moving for the rendezvous location. They hit the road but soon ran out of gas and ended up making camp in an industrial area. They dozed off to sleep, and Mack soon found himself stuck in a Groundhog Day-like nightmare, reliving a loop where a seemingly-unstoppable zombie attacked and killed him. Meanwhile, Addy kept reliving her her own nightmare—the moment she struggled to kill her own zombified mother. It turned out that the whole thing had been a dream, a way for Addy to come to terms with killing her mother, and that Mack and Addy were still at the creek by the woods.
There are just 4 episodes left to the season, and now we’ve gotten backstories on most of our survivors. I like that they’ve been mixing these in throughout the season, though there are still a few who we don’t know much about—like Doc and 10K, and also why Murphy was in prison in the first place. Will Mack and Addy find their way back to the rest of the group this week? Will the survivors get Murphy to his destination before he completely changes into whatever he is (d)evolving into?
On tonight’s episode, “Going Nuclear,” the survivors square off against radioactive zombies when they arrive in a South Dakota town that’s on the brink of nuclear disaster.
See if the survivors can escape the zombies and the nuclear fallout tonight on Syfy at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Cristela, Grimm, Constantine, and Haven.
