Tonight, AMC’s martial arts drama, Into the Badlands, returns for its second season. As the first season came to a close, Sunny had become close with MK and didn’t want to kill the “Dark One,” so he tried to pass off another severed head as proof of death to the River King to get passage out of the Badlands. Elsewhere, Veil had been captured by the Widow, who was forcing her to tend to her wounds from an earlier battle with Sunny. At the same time, Quinn chained Sunny in the dungeon under the suspicion that he was the traitor to his father. As Quinn took MK to a brothel, they quickly realized that it was a trap – Jacoby was waiting to kill the boy, and so Quinn sliced the boy’s hand with his sword in order to activate his blood rage. While they were fighting, Sunny showed up and stabbed and seemingly killed Quinn. But the main event that was going on at the same time was interrupted when the Brothers showed up with their glowing fists, and they easily took charge of the waking up a prisoner on a boat heading to who-knows-where.

I ended up really enjoying the short first season of this series. It provided both interesting characters and drama as well as some great fight scenes. I’m looking forward to seeing where the story goes in the second season and how they bring this group back together. Where is Sunny headed? Will Veil realize her love has been kidnapped and try to rescue him? What do the Brothers want with MK? Do they just want to train him and help him control his powers, or do they have more sinister motives? Is Quinn dead, and if so, who will become the new Baron? And will the Widow stop looking for MK?

On tonight’s premiere, “Tiger Pushes Mountain,” Sunny finds a new foe, as well as a new, unexpected ally. Meanwhile, MK learns about his gift in a mysterious place.

If you missed the first season, AMC is airing a marathon of all six episodes today, which started at 9:30am ET/PT. Otherwise, tune in tonight for the new episode at 10:05/9:05c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Time After Time, American Crime, Madam Secretary, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Making History, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, The Walking Dead, Feud: Bette and Joan, Big Little Lies, and Crashing.

Sleepy Hollow is starting to weave the story that will lead us to what truly evil plan Dreyfuss has planned. We’ve seen that Dreyfuss is incredibly crazy and believes in creating a new world, but now we’re learning that he’s trying to reassemble the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. I’m not sure if they are going to be able to stop this man before it’s too late, but if anyone can, it’s this new team. Crane, Jenny, and Diana all work great together. Add Alex, Jake, and Molly, and we may just have a winning combination. Speaking of Alex and Jake… I’m glad the writers have decided to have Alex realize her feelings for Jake now so that we can work towards them becoming a couple. They would be adorable as an official couple.

On tonight’s episode, “The Way of the Guns,” when a mysterious woman finds her way into the vault, the team struggles to understand who she is and with whom her allegiances lie. Meanwhile, Alex must come to terms with her complicated feelings when she finds herself in a tight spot. Can Team Witness handle what might be revealed?

Find out tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Grimm.

I’m so excited for tonight’s third/final season premiere of Review with Forrest MacNeil. In the first season, critic Forrest MacNeil decided to review life experiences, but his mistake was leaving the choice of those experiences up to his viewers. Forrest takes his job very seriously and commits himself fully to every review. While some of the suggestions were harmless, like eating pancakes, things quickly escalated when viewers started suggesting things like having an affair and killing someone. By the end of the first season, Forrest’s wife had left him and his life had pretty much been destroyed. It seemed like there was nowhere else to go in the second season, but Forrest returned to his job and tried to create some additional guidelines to prevent horrible things from happening again. However, things still escalated quickly, and Forrest found himself joining a cult and caused both of his father’s homes to burn to the ground. Forrest started to suspect that his producer Grant had been the person who destroyed his life, giving him these insane experiences to review. At the end of the second season, he confronted Grant, and the two of them wound up going over the edge of a tall bridge into the rough water below, presumably dead.

This is one of my all-time favorite series. I love how completely Forrest commits to his job and always maintains his integrity, even if the situation that results is dangerous and detrimental to his own well-being. I constantly find myself both laughing out loud and horrified at the same time while watching this show. Tonight the series is back to wrap up Forrest’s story with a shortened third season. How did Forrest survive the fall, and did Grant survive as well? What is next for Forrest – is it too late for him to repair and rebuild his life? Was Grant really the mastermind behind the destruction of Forrest’s life, or maybe A.J. was sick of being pushed into the background by her co-star? I can’t wait to see how this final chapter plays out!

If you want to relive Forrest’s past adventures or need to catch up before the final season, Comedy Central has made all 19 episodes of the first 2 seasons available at ComedyCentral.com.

On tonight’s premiere, “Locorito, Pet Euthanasia, Dream,” Forrest reviews a new product at a Mexican restaurant; experiences putting a pet to sleep; and learns what it’s like to fulfill a dream.

See how Forrest made it out of the river alive tonight on Comedy Central at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Snatch, Grey’s Anatomy, Superstore, The Blacklist: Redemption, MasterChef: Junior, Kicking & Screaming, and Colony.

Tonight, after seven crazy seasons, the Comedy Central series Workaholics comes to an end. Over the years, co-workers/roommates Blake, Adam, and Anders have found just about every excuse to avoid actually doing their telemarketing jobs and just spend their time partying or getting up to wacky schemes. They often show up to work drunk or high or engage in totally inappropriate workplace behavior. It’s a wonder how they haven’t been fired. But as much as they claim to hate their jobs, their coworkers – including always-angry boss Alice – have become a dysfunctional family. Last week, motivational speaker Bianca threatened to disrupt the annual workplace Darwin Awards ceremony, and the guys made it their mission to get rid of her. As she was leaving, Bianca offered Alice a job at her company. Even though the job was probably a lot better, Alice ultimately couldn’t bring herself to abandon her work family. It’s like they’re all trapped there for life.

I’m looking forward to seeing how this series comes to an end. The creators have known about this end date for a long time, so I really hope there is some kind of definitive end to the show. Will the guys finally get a little maturity and act like adults? Will the guys go out in a blaze of glory, Thelma & Louise style? Or will it just be not-no-much-business as usual, with the guys up to yet another off-the-wall scheme? Pretty much anything could happen!

On tonight’s series finale, “Party Gawds,” the guys become party gods after an energy drink company starts paying them to throw ragers.

To see how the series ends, tune in to Comedy Central at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, black-ish, Designated Survivor, Survivor, Criminal Minds, Arrow, The 100, Jeff & Some Aliens, Legion, The Magicians, The Expanse, and Major Crimes.

It has been a season for emotional rollercoasters all over the television front this year, but the biggest roller coaster has been brought to us by This Is Us. What an incredible show this has turned out to be, although I knew it would be starting from the very first episode. The writers have gone above and beyond to draw the viewing audience in to the world of this family, leaving us all better for it. My weekly cry fests have been split between this show and Code Black, both shows that play on your heartstrings consistently.

This season has shown us the evolution of a couple, Jack and Rebecca, from the beginning of their marriage and as it evolved when they became parents of triplets. I have been cheering this couple on from the very start, but unfortunately we were told that Jack died along the way. Last episode, Kate finally told Toby that the reason she doesn’t discuss her father’s death is because it was her fault. Not sure where that’s going, but I am sure that wherever it ventures, it will leave us all in tears with more questions. Also on the last episode, Randall and his adorable family bid farewell to William, Randall’s biological father. It was a fun-eral… Instead of the usual depressing stuff at funerals, William wanted the family to celebrate his life. It was a moving and heartwarming episode.

Tonight’s season finale is bittersweet because, while I’m excited to get another new episode, I am also upset that there won’t be any new episodes after this one until next season.

On tonight’s episode, “Moonshadow,” Jack heads to Cleveland to make things right with Rebecca on the night of her first big gig with the band. Randall, Kate, and Kevin make big decisions about their futures.

Find out the big decisions tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, NCIS, NCIS: New Orleans, Bones, Chopped, and Trial & Error.
