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.

switchedatbirth2015smallSomehow, Switched at Birth has done the seemingly-impossible—they have made me care about Daphne again! At the end of last season, she had gone off the rails and gotten into drugs. Bay (stupidly) took the fall for her vandalizing so that Daphne wouldn’t have to go jail, and now Bay is stuck wearing an ankle bracelet, doing community service, and had to cancel plans to join Emmett in California. Meanwhile, Daphne is having a hard time at school due to her deafness. Even though she hired a translator, she couldn’t keep up with her study group’s fast-talking, so they bailed on her. However, they had a sudden change of heart after they found out she received advanced notes for the class due to her disability—but since they would both using each other for something, I guess that makes it all okay now.

I find the relationship between Daphne and her translator really interesting, and I hope they explore this more. Why doesn’t this guy just take the chemistry class himself since he’s already there? Why doesn’t he just finish his degree?! Why did he have a breakdown the first time he attended this school, and can he overcome whatever issues he had? And what’s up with this musical Katheryn wants to do? Will she somehow pull Toby into helping her with this project? He’s hardly been in any episodes since the show returned.

On tonight’s episode, “I Lock the Door Upon Myself,” Daphne deals with a prankster in her dorm. Elsewhere, Bay interviews with the Kansas City Artist Showcase; Regina takes a liking to an Easter Riverside coffee house—and its owner; and John ponders his future as he celebrates a big birthday.

To see what the prankster pulls, tune in to ABC Family at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Parks and Recreation, MasterChef: Junior, The Flash, Supernatural, Justified, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Cougar Town, Face Off, and Kroll Show.

Kyle’s Choice #1

12monkeys116smallTonight, Syfy kicks off 12 Monkeys, inspired by the cult 1995 film of the same name, about a man from a post-apocalyptic future who travels back in time to our present try to stop the spreading of a deadly plague that will ultimately wipe out almost 94% of the world’s population. The main cast includes Aaron Stanford (Nikita) as James Cole, the man trying to save the planet; Amanda Schull (Suits, One Tree Hill) as virologist Dr. Cassandra Railly who reluctantly aids Cole in his mission; Kirk Acevedo (Fringe, Oz) as Ramse, Cole’s best friend; and Noah Bean (Nikita, Damages) as Aaron Marker, Cassandra’s boyfriend and political insider. The recurring cast also includes Emily Hampshire (Rookie Blue), Barbara Sukowa, Tom Noonan (Manhunter), Zeljko Ivanek (Madam Secretary, Damages), and Todd Stashwick (Warehouse 13, The Originals).

While I wasn’t a huge fan of the original film, I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere. While the general premise is the same as the film, the series sets up a larger world, mystery, and conspiracy. It looks like the show is going to be a fun action-adventure thrill ride with lots of time-whimey things to try to wrap your head around. Things are constantly jumping backwards and forwards in time, events are occurring in the past before they are actually known in the present, and so on. So you are constantly piecing together the puzzle of a story and working things out at the same time as the characters are. I can’t wait to see how more of this story unfolds!

Syfy held panels for 12 Monkeys and Helix at the Syfy Digital Press Tour a few months ago. You can find my videos and coverage at NoRerruns.net.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” using a dangerous and untested method of time travel, a man from a decimated future travels to present day on a mission to locate and eliminate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually all but annihilate the human race.

Jump back in time with this new series tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/17/14

Christmas is just over a week away, and I’m actually pretty much done with my Christmas shopping—just waiting for all of the packages to arrive in the mail. However, I haven’t even started on my Christmas cards yet. Tonight, Syfy’s big three-night Ascension event comes to a close, but if you didn’t heed my advice on Monday and watch part one—or part two last night—don’t fret, because I’ve got another suggestion for tonight’s TV watching. Megan & Jenny are taking the night off, but Jenny said to watch Hot in Cleveland (their first Christmas episode) and The Exes if you’re missing the Wednesday-night comedies.

survivor2014smallTonight, another season of Survivor comes to a close with the show’s traditional 3-hour season finale/live reunion combo. Last week, we were down to the final 6, when it looked like Missy might have to exit the game due to an injured foot. However, she decided to stick it out, and despite her protesting, the group was finally able to pull off the big blindside orchestrated by Natalie. The group split the votes, causing a tie between Keith, Jon, and Jaclyn, and in the re-vote, Jon was sent packing, with an unused idol in his pocket. It’s unclear if he actually passed the idol to his girlfriend Jaclyn before he walked away, but I guess we’ll find out tonight. So we are down to the final 5, which includes the final pair—mother/daughter Missy and Baylor—and individuals Natalie, Keith, and Jaclyn. Will the individuals go after Missy and Baylor first, or will someone try to make a final 3 deal with the last remaining pair? I’m rooting for my Amazing Race “Twinnie” to win tonight.

On tonight’s finale, “This Is My Time,” the final five castaways compete for a spot in the final Tribal Council, where they are questioned by the jury.

To see who takes home the prize, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The 100, American Horror Story: Freak Show, Top Chef, Chrisley Knows Best, and Ascension.
