criminalminds107smallLast week was the premiere of Criminal Minds, and I was so glad to see it back. I missed JJ, who is out on maternity leave with a beautiful little baby boy, but it was fun meeting Aisha Tyler’s character, Dr. Tara Lewis, who was applying for a position with the BAU. The team had to track down a serial killer who they figured out pretty quickly was actually a contract killer who was going back and killing the people who’d hired him because one of them – he didn’t know which one – had tried to kill him. He’d been shot in the face, which meant he couldn’t speak or eat, so he had to inject a liquid nutrition into a port in his stomach…and he was using that liquid diet injected under the skin to make his victims helpless before he killed them. It was pretty gruesome. Tara Lewis happened to be in the right place at the right time and got on the phone with the killer’s next victim – the cop husband of a woman who’d hired him – to pretend to be his wife in order to let him know they knew the killer was with him and they were going to stop him before he could kill him. It was that performance that sealed the deal for Hotch, especially after Garcia almost begged him to hire her.

I was also glad to see some cute interaction between Morgan and Garcia. Not really lovey-dovey, but sweet and cute, and when he kissed her on her cheek and she said that never gets old, it was adorable.

On tonight’s episode, “The Witness,” when a Los Angeles bus is attacked with sarin gas, the BAU must act quickly to find the suspect before a larger-scale incident occurs. Guest stars include Marisol Nichols (NCIS, 24) as FBI Agent Natalie Colfax, who assists the BAU with the investigation, and Tim Kang (The Mentalist) as Charlie Senerak, a medical supply worker.

See how the team catches the suspect tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Mysteries of Laura, Rosewood, Steampunk’d, The Goldbergs, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Property Brothers, Worst Cooks in America, black-ish, Chicago PD, Code Black, & Mystery Diners.

svu107smallLaw & Order: SVU has been having a very strong season so far, with two intense episodes that have kept us on the edge of our seats. Last week’s episode was very emotional and had me in tears. A couple of boys decided to tease a transgender girl, named Avery, calling her a “he/she” and a “tranny.” They took her camera and played keep-away until one young boy, Darius, pushed Avery away from him when she was grabbing at her camera and Avery stumbled on her heels and fell off the bridge. The boys admitted to the situation, but even though there were two other boys involved, Darius was made to take the blame because he was the one who started it and because he pushed her. It was all an accident, and halfway through the episode Avery forgave Darius after he sent an apology in the form of a sketch. Unfortunately, this was all too happy of a moment for this show, so then Avery died, changing the charge from assault to manslaughter. Avery’s parents fought to have Darius only tried as a juvenile because they wanted Avery’s death to be a message of forgiveness as well as not wanting to see another young life ruined. The new District Attorney didn’t see it that way and went after Darius for manslaughter and a hate crime as an adult. Even after a very well-fought case, the judge decided that she too must make an example of this case and sentenced Darius to three years in juvenile hall then four years in the adult prison. I was in tears because it didn’t need to be like that. Darius really didn’t mean to kill or harm Avery. He made a bad decision, and it caused so many tragic things. This was a very poignant episode, especially with the talk of transgender being discussed more and more lately. I’m hoping this level of writing keeps up for the rest of the season, because it’s the best in a long time.

On tonight’s episode, “Institutional Fail,” a starving toddler found wandering the streets alone leads detectives to the home of Manuela Ozuna (guest star Jessica Pimental) and another child in grave condition. The police question Department of Child Services caseworker Keith Musio. Whoopi Goldberg guest stars as Keith Musio’s supervisor, and Peter Gallagher guest stars as Chief Dodds.

To watch this riveting episode unfold, tune in to NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, The Mysteries of Laura, Rosewood, Empire, Chicago PD, and Code Black.

americanhorrorstory107smallTonight, FX kicks off the latest chapter in its spooky anthology series with American Horror Story: Hotel. This installment takes place at the Hotel Cortez in Los Angeles, California, where owner/proprietor the Countess (Lady Gaga) plays host to the strange, bizarre, and deadly. When homicide detective John Lowe (Wes Bentley, The Hunger Games) arrives, he finds himself investigating murderous threats such as the Ten Commandments Killer and the Addiction Demon.

Returning again this season are the talented Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare, and Finn Wittrock. And joining the series for the first time are Matt Bomer (White Collar), Chloë Sevigny (Bloodline), and Cheyenne Jackson (30 Rock). After Murder House, Asylum, Coven, and Freak Show, how will the series out-creep itself for this fifth season?! This show just seems to get better and better each season, so I can’t wait to find out! I’m also interested to see how the series fares without mainstay Jessica Lange, who won’t be appearing for the first time.

On tonight’s premiere, “Checking In,” Detective John Lowe investigates a series of murders in Los Angeles, and a peculiar tip indicates the Hotel Cortez as a place of interest.

Check out the creepy fun tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, Code Black, The Middle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, black-ish, Empire, Arrow, Supernatural, Kevin From Work, The League, You’re the Worst, and Worst Cooks in America.
