thewalkingdead329smallTonight, AMC will be airing a special 90-minute season finale of The Walking Dead. In last week’s episode, Glenn and Nicholas each recounted his own version of the events that transpired — Nicholas basically told Deanna that her son’s death was all Glenn’s fault, but it remains to be seen if she saw through these lies. Outside the walls, Carl and Enid had a brief romantic moment in the woods while hiding in a tree as walkers roamed by; Sasha was overwhelmed by her grief over the loss of Noah and headed out to kill some walkers; and Darryl and Aaron came across a tied-up walker with a W carved into her forehead. Meanwhile, back in town, Rick confronted Pete about the domestic abuse, which didn’t go over well — the conversation quickly turned to violence, with bodies flying through glass windows and a fist fight in the middle of town. Michonne was forced to punch Rick out to stop him from killing Pete.

What will be the fallout of this fight in the middle of town? Will Deanna banish Rick — and possibly some/all of his group? Who is carving these Ws into the walkers, and what does it mean? Darryl and Aaron seem to be heading right toward whomever is responsible — will they be friendly, or are Darryl and Aaron in danger? Are we finally going to see Morgan reappear and learn what he’s been up to? (Could that W actually be an M for Morgan?) It should be another exciting episode, and I would wager we are going to lose someone we know and care about tonight and be left with a huge cliffhanger for the next season!

On tonight’s episode, “Conquer,” Daryl experiences trouble on a run. Meanwhile, Rick and his group continue to feel like outsiders in Alexandria, where trouble is creeping in through the gates.

To see who makes it out alive tonight, tune in to AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time, The Last Man on Earth, The Talking Dead, The Royals, and Shameless.

thewalkingdead322smallWhat a great episode of The Walking Dead last week! The power grid at Alexandria was having issues, so a team went on a mission to look for replacement parts. While in the warehouse, the group was overrun by walkers—Aiden was impaled and eventually eaten alive; Tara was badly wounded but carried to safety by Eugene (who finally grew a pair); and Noah, Glenn, and Nicholas got stuck in a revolving door—which didn’t end well for Noah, who was gruesomely ripped apart by walkers as Glenn looked on. Before Aiden died, he revealed that the Alexandrians had an “every wounded man left behind” policy.

This policy was also evident at the work site as walkers attacked and a woman fell and hurt her leg. While the rest of the Alexandrians took off, leaving the woman to die, Abraham put his own life on the line to save her. Back in town, Carol realized that Pete was being abusive to Jessie (and possibly her cookie buddy Sam as well) and told Rick that Pete needed to die. And finally, Father Gabriel went to Deanna’s house to tell her Rick’s group can’t be trusted—but Maggie overheard the whole conversation.

Does Deanna believe Gabriel’s story, or will she chalk it up to crazy ramblings? Once Maggie relays this to the others, what will Rick do? I really hope Father Gabriel meets the walkers soon—his own self-loathing and guilt is now affecting Rick and the gang! Also, how is Rick going to handle this Pete thing? Deanna is already a bit wary of giving so much leadership control over to Rick’s group, and if he does something without consulting her, it’s only going to make things worse. Plus, with her son killed in the warehouse run, is she now going to suspect something nefarious happened instead of the truth, that it was just an accident?

On tonight’s episode, “Try,” Rick and the group face setbacks as existence within the walls starts to mimic life outside.

To see what Rick and the group face tonight, tune in to AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Battle Creek, Once Upon a Time, Bob’s Burgers, The Last Man on Earth, The Royals, Looking, and Shameless.

theroyalssmallIt’s probably been at least a decade since the last time I watched anything on E!, but tonight they kick off their first scripted series, The Royals, and I’m looking forward to checking it out. The series follows the lives of a fictional royal family in modern-day London. Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley, Gossip Girl) loves her title and all the power that comes with hit, but her husband Simon (Vincent Regan, A.D.), who’s coping with the loss of his eldest son, is contemplating abolishing the monarchy before it ruins his family—including wild 21-year-old daughter Eleanor (Alexandra Park, Home and Away) and her slightly-older twin brother Liam (Wiliam Moseley, The Chronicles of Narnia). Liam, who is now heir to the throne, is a bit of a playboy but falls for commoner Ophelia (Merritt Patterson, Ravenswood), the American daughter of the King’s head of security. Meanwhile, Cyrus (Jake Maskall, EastEnders) feels like he should be the one sitting on the throne.

The series is filmed on location in London, and the sets and scenery look breathtaking! The show seems like it’s going to be a fun, soapy drama filled with stories of love, hate, lust, revenge, scandals, and power struggles, all set in a world of opulence and majesty. I’m looking forward to seeing all the craziness and drama that goes on with this royal family behind the palace gates!

On tonight’s premiere, “Stand and Unfold Yourself,” Prince Liam and Princess Eleanor struggle with their new roles following the abrupt death of their older brother, while Queen Helena works to maintain the family’s image, and King Simon questions the monarchy’s future.

To see behind the public face of this new royal family, tune in to E! at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, The Walking Dead, Looking, Shameless, and Episodes.

thefollowing32smallI’m really excited for tonight’s third season premiere of The Following! When we left off last season, Joe Caroll had finally been caught and arrested (again) after he teamed up with Ryan to save Claire from the evil Luke and Mark. During the cat-and-mouse game with the twins, Mike revealed that he was the one who killed their mother, which sent them into a rage as they both attacked Mike. Max arrived in time to help, killing Luke. However, Mark managed to get away, dragging the body of his brother with him, and was picked up by someone in a car who seemed to know him.

Who is this mysterious driver? Where is Mark hiding out, and will he be coming back to get his revenge on Ryan, Max, and Mike? What kind of crazy cult will Ryan and the gang face next? Will Joe manage to escape yet again, will they let him out to help apprehend some worse killer, or will he actually be put to death? I’m looking forward to another season of creepy, suspenseful goodness!

This summer I was in the press room for the series, where we got to interview the cast/producer of the series. Check out my videos at NoReruns.net.

On tonight’s premiere, “New Blood,” Joe Carroll is on death row and his followers are no more, but a fresh series of brutal killings reopens old wounds for Ryan Hardy and a terrifying new nemesis awaits him and the team.

Learn who the new nemesis is tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Night Shift, Gotham, Chasing Life, and Better Call Saul.

sirens127smallTonight, the USA Network comedy series Sirens is back for the start of its second season. The series follows the exploits and misadventures of three Chicago EMTs on the job and in their personal lives. When we last left off, Johnny’s girlfriend Theresa had decided to take a job with the FBI in Washington, which made Johnny realize how much he would miss her, so he proposed. The two attempted to get married, but everything that could have gone wrong did — there was bickering in-laws, an illegal cock-fighting ring in the church basement, a priest who couldn’t stop quoting Kevin Costner, and Hank fooling around with the priest’s son! In the end, Johnny and Theresa decided not to go through with the wedding and instead took the smaller step of moving in with one another.

Will Johnny and Theresa’s relationship last this time around? And how will their new status affect the dynamic of the group? This show is always a lot of fun, and I especially enjoy the scenes when the guys are giving each other a hard time. I’m looking forward to another season of raucous, politically-incorrect fun and humor.

On tonight’s first episode, “Superdick,” Johnny finds a perfect apartment to share with Theresa thanks to a landlord with a nut allergy. In other events, Brian struggles with his platonic love affair with Voodoo; Billy begins dating Theresa’s sister; and Hank wonders if he’ll ever find love. And then in “Johnny Nightingale,” Johnny deals with an overly grateful patient; and Brian agrees to take an injured young woman to her prom.

Enjoy the start of the new season tonight on USA Network at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording CSI, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Parks and Recreation, Marry Me, About a Boy, MasterChef: Junior, The Flash, Supernatural, Switched at Birth, Justified, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Cougar Town, Face Off, Sons of Liberty, and Kroll Show.
