Tonight, the TBS comedy, The Detour, returns for a second season. The first season was very similar to National Lampoon’s Vacation – the Parker family was on a road trip to Florida under the guise of a family vacation, but patriarch Nate was really on a mission to expose his employer’s deadly plans. Everything that could have gone wrong during the trip did go wrong…and so much more! Nate ended up missing his whistle-blowing opportunity, but it actually worked out for the better, as he was wrong and would have just ended up looking like a fool. However, Nate did learn that partner Robin had some major secret that she was hiding, and twins Delilah and Jared learned that their parents weren’t actually married.

The second season picks up a short time later. Nate is still out of a job, and the family is living in a trailer park in Syracuse. However, a new job opportunity in New York City will send the family on a whole new series of misadventures and Robin to a city that holds many secrets she’s been trying to hide. As I watched the first half of tonight’s double-episode premiere, I was quickly reminded of how much I missed this show! I was laughing out loud throughout. I just love this show’s irreverent humor that doesn’t worry about being politically correct. I am so excited to see what craziness awaits the Parkers in New York City!

On tonight’s first episode, “The City,” Nate is offered a new job in New York City, triggering the family’s move from Syracuse to the Big Apple. Then, in “The Club,” Robin’s ex lures her back to her wild side by visiting a club from their past, sparking Nate’s jealousy in the process. Meanwhile, the kids meet Nate’s new boss.

Find out how the move to NYC goes for the Parkers tonight on TBS starting at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Wall, This Is Us, New Girl, The Mick, Bones, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Switched at Birth, Face Off, Teachers, and Chrisley Knows Best.

Tonight, Bates Motel returns for the start of its fifth and final season on A&E. As the fourth season came to a close, Norman had gone full-on Psycho, blocking up the furnace vents in order to try to kill himself and his mother via carbon monoxide. Romero happened to stop by the house shortly afterwards and tried to save them, but it was too late for Norma. Norman had left a suicide note from Norma, but Romero figured out what must have really happened. He had a gun ready and was planning to kill Norman but was arrested for perjury, which delayed those plans. After the funeral, Norman dug up his mother’s body and brought it back home, but he still seemed confused and hadn’t really accepted that Norma is actually dead.

As we head into the final 10 episodes of the series, I’m curious to see what stories the writers have left to tell. We’re almost to the point in Norman’s journey that took place in the original Psycho film. Are we building to that moment? Will they re-create the events of the film in the series? Will Dylan learn about his mother’s death, and if so, how will he react and will he return home? Will Romero get his revenge on Norman, or will he ultimately become one of his latest victims? I’m looking forward to seeing how this creepy final chapter plays out.

On tonight’s premiere, “Dark Paradise,” a troubling discovery surfaces and Dylan and Emma get a surprise guest.

Check out the beginning of the end tonight on A&E at 10/9c.

And in case you need a refresher going into the final season, A&E will be airing a 30-minute “Quickie Catchup” before tonight’s premiere, at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Quantico, Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, Timeless, APB, Jane the Virgin, Humans, and Beyond.

SO MUCH happened on the previous episode of NCIS: LA. Way too much to talk about here. So check out my stream-of-consciousness thoughts that are in no particular order: 1) Hetty is the one who set up the team members to be arrested, in order to keep them locked up and safe from the true bad guys (and in Sam’s case, at least, he wasn’t REALLY locked up, as the agent in charge did it as a favor to Hetty). 2) It turned out to be a good thing, since Kensi, who wasn’t arrested and DIDN’T follow Hetty’s instructions to stay there at Ops and be safe, was kidnapped by the bad guys! 3) The CIA is indeed behind the whole mole thing – Sabatino and Sharov, the CIA operative the team rescued from the Russian prison, included. 4) Sullivan (Kensi’s Marine friend from rehab) is actually CIA, and he has a personal grudge against the team and Kensi in particular, as she accidentally shot his leg off in Afghanistan when she thought he was Taliban. 5) Ferris is the one who kidnapped Kensi, and he’s looking for payback. An eye for an eye…or more specifically, a leg for a leg! 6) Hetty blew up the building she was in, which killed Sharov and nearly killed Carl Brown and Sabatino, but Carl Brown got a shot off and hit LAPD Detective Whiting, the woman gunning for Deeks who was actually helping the team look for Hetty and Kensi at the end of the episode. Brown was then promptly killed as the team returned fire. (Good riddance!)

So a lot of questions going into tonight’s episode! 1) Obviously they won’t cut off Kensi’s leg, right? 2) Did Sabatino survive? He was alive when they checked him at the blast site, but… 3) What about Granger? The last we heard, he was alive after being stabbed in prison. Miguel Ferrer passed away exactly a month ago, on January 29, so if they originally had Granger surviving the stabbing, did they have to refilm some of this episode so the character doesn’t survive, or does he survive, only to be written out some other way? Either way, it’s a sad thing! 4) Given the episode description for tonight and the fact that Elizabeth Bogush is guest starring as Joelle Taylor, does that mean Callen’s ex-girlfriend is actually a bad guy?! Gah!

On tonight’s episode, “Payback,” emotions run high for the team as one agent is held in an unknown location and tortured by the mole, while another discovers he was betrayed by someone he least expected.

See how the team finds Kensi and who betrayed whom tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, The Paley Center Salutes NBC’s 90th Birthday, Worst Cooks in America, Cake Wars, & To Tell the Truth.

NBC’s Superstore is always one of the highlights of my Thursday night TV watching. Last week it was Valentine’s Day at Cloud 9, and Amy and Glenn tried to play matchmaker for Myrtle, but their attempts to set her up with another elderly employee resulted in a sexual harassment investigation. Meanwhile, Garrett learned about Mateo’s secret relationship with Jeff and tried to push his jealousy over Sandra’s pretend relationship to the boiling point. And Jonah went undercover to help Dina catch a shoplifter, but he ended up falling for his mark. So Dina made sure to burn that potential relationship to the ground by pretending that Jonah was the deadbeat father to her children. But in the end, Jonah was back to joking and having a good time with Amy as the two cleared the store of its Valentine’s Day decorations.

Earlier this week, NBC announced the wonderful news that Superstore had been picked up for a third season. This series just keeps getting funnier and funnier – this ensemble cast just works so well together and has really found their groove. When I was watching the show last week, I couldn’t help but be reminded of The Office, when that show was really firing on all cylinders. I’m so happy there are plenty more crazy adventures to come for the Cloud 9 crew.

On tonight’s episode, “Super Hot Store,” angry tensions magnify when the store’s thermostat breaks, leaving the staffers miserably hot inside Cloud 9. Meanwhile, Dina and Garrett find a way to pass the time, and Cheyenne helps Glenn through an existential crisis as he tries to fix the heater.

See how Dina and Garrett occupy themselves tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, The Great Indoors, Life in Pieces, Training Day, Powerless, The Blacklist, MasterChef Junior, My Kitchen Rules, Riverdale, Top Chef, and Colony.

On last week’s Criminal Minds, bodies (well, torsos…) were being found without the heads, legs, and arms. It was a creepy case of an abusive husband turning into a serial killer, but the team did catch up to him – just in time, too, before he could kill his husband. And poor Reid… He has his mom at home with him, trying to take care of her, but it’s a big job. He finally found someone who could handle helping him while he was out of town for work, but he’s keeping her in the dark with the mysterious drugs he’s giving his mom. He finally admitted at the end of the episode last week that trying to take care of her at home may be too much for him to handle. So what are the drugs he didn’t tell the caregiver about? And is he really going to move his mom to a home? And given the description for tonight’s episode, what in the world happened between last week and this?! I’ve read several places that this episode changes Reid’s life in a drastic way. I don’t think the actor is going anywhere, unless it’s the biggest secret the show’s ever kept. So…

On tonight’s episode, “Spencer,” when a BAU member gets in trouble in Mexico, the team enlists the services of the International Response Team for their help. Alana De La Garza & Daniel Henney from Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders guest star.

Find out why Reid is in Mexico tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, The Goldbergs, Hunted, Lethal Weapon, Cooks vs Cons, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, black-ish, Bakers vs Fakers, Chicago PD, Match Game, & Six.
