hellskitchen33smallIt’s time for another season of Hell’s Kitchen, and even though this show is in its 14th season, I can’t get enough. I love cooking competition shows, but no matter how many new ones come out, this one is still at the top of my list because of the crazy antics that get brought out with all the chefs. The group of chefs this season appears to be quite the smorgasbord, but it is definitely going to be a hot season with drama, because this bunch looks feisty. I’m going to start a count of how many times someone messes up scallops in the season premiere.

On tonight’s episode, “18 Chefs Compete,” Chef Ramsay asks 18 new contestants to present their signature dishes in front of an audience, and the winning team earns a night with William Shatner; one team gets kicked out of the kitchen during the first dinner service.

To see how this group of 18 handles the heat in Ramsay’s kitchen, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Fresh Off the Boat, Pretty Little Liars, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Mindy Project, Chopped, Chicago Fire, and Gangland Undercover.

hawaiifiveo227smallI’ve really been impressed with the stories on Hawaii Five-0 this season, and I continue to be amazed at the character growth weekly. Last week’s episode was an incredible nail biter, while we watched McGarrett and the team track down an arsonist with the help of a suspended ATF Special Agent Kathy Millwood (Melina Kanakaredes, CSI: NY), whose husband was killed by the arsonist. They managed to track him down to a hotel, but he took Agent Millwood hostage and planned on burning them down together in the hotel room. I was actually a little concerned we were going to have to watch yet another burn victim scene in this episode, but thankfully Steve saved the day and got to Kathy before the gas she was doused with was lit, turning her into a human torch. The subplot of this episode was really good with Danny and Amber going away for the weekend, but little did Amber know her abusive ex-husband, Frank, was on the island looking for her. Turned out that Frank was sent to jail for almost killing Amber, whose real name is actually Melissa. No matter what you call her, she was not looking to see him again. Unfortunately for Danny, who didn’t know anything about Frank, the man tracked them to the cottage and he knocked Danny out in the kitchen. When Danny came around, he saw Frank holding a knife to Amber. Always the hero, Danny jumped into motion, and while he saved Amber, he got stabbed himself. My favorite part came when Amber was leaving to drive Danny to the hospital and Frank jumped in front of the car. Amber hit him and then proceeded to run him over—karma at its finest, if you ask me. In the end, Danny survived, Amber told him everything, and of course Steve rushed to the hospital to check up on his partner. I’m really looking forward to where this season is headed, but wherever it is, you can be sure it’s going to be fantastic.

On tonight’s episode, “Kuka’awale (Stakeout),” McGarrett and Danny work on their relationship while they stakeout a woman’s apartment after she escapes following a diamond robbery. Max Weinberg, Cloris Leachman, Charlie Saxton, Jon Lovitz, & Jessica Lowndes guest star, and Daniel Dae Kim makes his directorial debut.

To see how this bromance couple works on their relationship, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Amazing Race, 12 Monkeys, and Glee.

bluebloods220smallThank goodness it’s Friday! It has been a ridiculously long and hectic week around my house, which is making my anticipation for an all-new Blue Bloods tonight even greater. Last week’s episode, Jamie and Eddie spend their dealing with a civil volunteer officer, Andy, who took his position a little too seriously. He was staking out people and kept logs, but it was those crazy surveillances that got him shot. He called Jamie and Eddie to say he had a drug dealer in sight. The two cops headed out, and just while Eddie was trying to talk the dealer into putting his gun down, Andy ran at him, which ended up in Andy getting shot. The dealer then turned the gun on Jamie and Eddie, but Eddie shot the perp and he died. Jamie assured her it was a clean shoot, but she was having problems dealing with it, which eventually led to Jamie holding a sobbing Eddie at her apartment. I really hope that this brings these two closer together and even closer to them finally officially hooking up. It was a great episode, and I’m really liking where they’re going with the whole cast this season.

On tonight’s episode, “Only in New York,” an emotionally distraught man holds Baez hostage at gunpoint in an interrogation room after she served him with a restraining order. Danny must try to meet his demands before he harms her. Meanwhile, Frank is faced with a personal and moral dilemma when Garrett asks for help in dropping charges filed against his son.

To find out if Danny can save his partner, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, Hart of Dixie, Undercover Boss, Glee, and 12 Monkeys.

chicagopd211smallI’m not sure about everyone else, but I was on the edge of my seat watching last week’s Chicago PD episode, especially seeing as it was a crossover from Chicago Fire. Robert Knepper was perfectly creepy as the arsonist, Gish. What a great casting choice… He always manages to give me chills when he’s being the villain on a show. Antonio went with his sister, Gabriella, who was sure that Gish was the arsonist responsible for Shay’s death (the paramedic on Chicago Fire), and while they didn’t have any hard evidence, Antonio believed his sister enough to bring Gish in for questioning. Voight knew he was the guy after talking with him, but Gish’s lawyer got him off, which led to a wild episode of cat and mouse, including Gish blowing up Roman and Burgess’s squad car. Later, we found out that Gish was now targeting Gabriella, and he ended up luring her to a building with a fake text message. Just as he was about to light the elevator on fire, intent on burning her alive, Antonio swept in and saved her. It was an intense moment. On another note, Lindsay was happy to be back with her old unit and was enjoying her secret relationship with Jay. Unfortunately, her mother called at the end of the episode and ruined her happiness by revealing she may know a murderer—her mom really knows how to cause stress and drama in Lindsay’s life. I’m looking forward to this week’s episode immensely, and I hope that we get to see more of Lindsay and Jay together.

On tonight’s episode, “Erin’s Mom,” Bunny comes to Lindsay, concerned about a suspicious repeat customer at her husband’s rental company. This lead brings Intelligence into a case which Robbery-Homicide has been working for months. Detective Gina Gawronski downloads their intel to the team. She also happens to be Antonio’s former co-worker from Vice. Voight doesn’t trust Bunny’s motives for the tip.

To see how Lindsay and the team handle this “tip,” tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, black-ish, The Mentalist, Arrow, Empire, Wahlburgers, Donny Loves Jenny, and Law & Order: SVU.

janethevirgin29smallLast week on Jane the Virgin, Jane got a job writing for The Passions of Santos but quickly discovered her first assignment was to write her father’s death scene. Rogelio’s assistant had manipulated events in order to make Rogelio look bad so he could become the new star of the show. Meanwhile, Petra faked her own murder in order to trick her mother into revealing that she could walk. And Rose was revealed (to us) as Sin Rostro as she murdered Emilio, burying him alive in fresh cement.

Will Michael and the others also discover Rose’s secret? What will Rafael do when he discovers his father is dead? Has Petra buried the hatchet with Milos now that she knows her mother was actually the target of his acid? What will Rogelio do now—Santos must have an evil twin or identical cousin they could write into the show, right?! Or is he headed to Hollywood to try to make it on the big screen? I hope Rogelio sticks around because he is my favorite character!

On tonight’s episode, “Chapter Thirteen,” Jane learns the baby’s sex, but a medical issue arises and may interfere with Jane’s graduation. Meanwhile, Alba refuses to tell Xo about something she finds too embarrassing to discuss; and Michael believes he’s uncovered Sin Rostro’s real identity.

To see if a medical issue does indeed interfere with Jane’s graduation, tune in to The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Castle, Gotham, Sleepy Hollow, Jane the Virgin, Chasing Life, and Better Call Saul.
