Week after week, the tragicomic lives of the Pickles family have been making my fall this year on Kidding, the new Jim Carey vehicle that airs Sunday nights on Showtime. Last week things revolved primarily around Jeff’s relationship with cancer-stricken Vivian and the visiting Pickle-san, a Japanese version of Mr. Pickles who has come to learn under the originator of the brand.

It starts lighthearted with Will & Jeff flying to California to record voice work for a new line of Mr. Pickles dolls going into production. They even get to show Vivian the ocean via some Facetime app, while she remains back East doing more chemo. Meanwhile, Deidre, who was still struggling with her husband’s gay affair, bonded with Pickle-san, who only spoke English when he was communicating through a puppet.

Vivian had put her cancer into remission by the time Jeff & Will got back, and they decided to throw a big party, and that’s where things got cringey to grating. Vivian mentioned she wanted to go ziplining in South America, and Jeff and the rest of the family all started to make this collective big plan to all go together next year. But she cut them off to break up with Jeff, saying that he would always remind her of the time she thought she only had five weeks to live. This hilariously turned into everyone in the family yelling “fuck you!” at her as one angry family. Even Will and Deidre’s young daughter pumped middle fingers as the cancer survivor left sadly. Then, Deidre’s husband walked in on Pickle-san as he puppeted a puppet with his penis. Awkwardddddddd. In the last scene, after paying off all of Vivian’s hospital bills, Jeff flipped out and smashed everything in his office as he screamed like a raving lunatic. He lacks coping skills.

On tonight’s episode, “Philliam,” Jeff meets the son of his pen pal, an inmate on death row, and decides to help him.

I’ll also be watching Shameless, Supergirl, & Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

Things have been a little tense on NCIS: LA since the team returned from Mexico. There was a hit put out on Mosley and her son by the cartel, but the team managed to intervene and they survived. No one knows where Hetty is, but last week she contacted Callen using a voice simulator to let him know things are complicated, there are things to come, and to stay aware. I’m not sure what is coming, but given the history on this show, it is going to get worse before it gets better for sure.

On tonight’s episode, “Pro Se,” while assisting NCIS with an undercover operation, informant Elizabeth Williams is arrested, and the team is unable to provide her with an alibi. Also, Callen meets with ATF Agent Anna Kolcheck who remains on suspension following her last joint case.

To see how the team gets Elizabeth out of this situation, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching God Friended Me, Charmed, Supergirl, Halloween Wars, and Haunted Gingerbread Showdown.
