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.

Jenny’s Choice #1

Last week’s Lethal Weapon was all about the grass being greener on the other side, at least for Murtaugh. When he and Riggs were up against a Koreatown gang and a drug war, they had to work with a detective who knew more about that culture, and Murtaugh got along well with the guy, who was all about following the rules, calling/waiting for backup, etc. In the end, though, I think he realized working with Riggs has been good for him. The funniest part was when Riggs was drugged by the woman who turned out to be the killer. Riggs sober (well, at least not high on drugs…) is pretty amusing. But Riggs high on drugs? Hysterical. I loved him riding on top of the car (according to the MythBusters, that’s impossible. LOL) and saying hi to Roger, who went by going the other way. The saddest part of the episode was Trish trying to set up Riggs with a friend. I loved Riggs’s telling her that someday he’ll have to move on, but not yet.

On tonight’s episode, “Lawmen,” Murtaugh and Riggs are pitted against the LA Sheriff’s department when the killing of a Texas Ranger leads them to believe a possible misuse of power is at play. Just as the partners are sure they’ve found their culprit, the case becomes even more complicated when a dark secret is dug up from Captain Avery’s past. Malcolm-Jamal Warner (Major Crimes) and Scott William Winters (Law & Order: SVU) guest star.

To learn Captain Avery’s dark secret, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

Tonight, the surreal comedy Man Seeking Woman returns for its third season on FXX. This highly-creative series follows the adventures of hopeless romantic Josh Greenberg (Jay Baruchel, How to Train Your Dragon, Undeclared) as he tries to find love again after being dumped by his longtime girlfriend. As the third season opens, Josh meets Lucy (Katie Findlay, How to Get Away with Murder), and while the pair immediately find love, Josh is not really a hit with Lucy’s roommates.

I had forgotten just how much fun this show was until I checked out tonight’s premiere. While this is the show’s third season, those who have never seen the series before can easily jump in and thoroughly enjoy tonight’s premiere. (Though I would highly recommend checking out the hilarious first two seasons.) The series is so cleverly written. I love the way that the writers depict these universally familiar aspects of relationships through seemingly ridiculous and surreal storylines. For example, tonight’s episode starts off as a timely parody of border security/illegal immigration as Lucy’s roommates try to keep Josh out of their apartment. Tonight’s premiere had me smiling throughout. Katie Findlay is an adorable and fun addition to the cast, and I look forward to seeing how Lucy and Josh’s relationship plays out over the upcoming episodes.

On tonight’s premiere, “Futon,” Josh and Lucy fall in love but struggle with the living arrangements.

See if Lucy and Josh can make things work tonight on FXX at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, black-ish, Match Game, Criminal Minds, Blindspot, Lethal Weapon, Frequency, and Incorporated.

blindspot1012smallLast week on Blindspot, the team followed a tattoo to a corrupt Homeland Security employee who has been building video games that turn out to be plans for thieves on how to execute perfect robberies. In the end, the team unraveled the clues like they always do, reunited a mother (a CIA agent) with her daughter, who she thought was dead, but then the woman went to prison for murder and the daughter got sent to live with other family. It all tied in to Jane’s story, as well as Reade’s. Reade is still dealing with the fact that Freddie insinuated that Reade himself was also a victim of their coach, who’d sexually abused boys under his care. And Jane learned that the (supposed) reason Sandstorm is doing what they’re doing is that Shepherd’s family (parents and brother) all died as a result of the contamination of a lake they always went to. You could tell the story affected Jane, but I hope it doesn’t make her waver on whose side she’s on!

No one knows about Weller’s ex-girlfriend’s pregnancy yet, but that is going to have to come up this week, as Allie is back this week, working with the team to catch the bad guys. Eek!

On tonight’s episode, “Condone Untidiest Thefts,” after a prominent politician is almost killed during a rally, Weller and the team must work with U.S. Marshal Allie Knight (guest star Trieste Kelly Dunn) to take down a mob leader.

See if Allie can stay safe tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Lethal Weapon, Speechless, Criminal Minds, Frequency, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Property Brothers, Worst Cooks in America, black-ish, Chicago PD, Cutthroat Kitchen, & That Awkward Game Show.

This season of Criminal Minds is going to look a little different than the past eleven. For one, Derek (Shemar Moore) retired from the FBI last season after his wife had a baby and he was held hostage by a bad guy. And second, after an altercation on set with a writer, Thomas Gibson was put on leave and then quickly fired, which means Hotch will only be in a couple (or few, I don’t know…) episodes. On a great note, though, the show rehired Paget Brewster as a series regular, which means Prentiss is back full-time! Also on board full-time as a series regular is Aisha Tyler (playing Dr. Tara Lewis) and new agent Luke Alvez, played by CSI: Miami vet Adam Rodriguez, who I loved on that show.

So who is taking over Hotch’s job as team leader? Some fans are suggesting Prentiss…and while that might work, I don’t see why Rossi isn’t the perfect person for the job – unless he doesn’t want it. Regardless, this season should be exciting as the team learns to work together and try to re-capture the serial killers who escaped from prison in the finale last season.

On tonight’s episode, “The Crimson King,” Agent Luke Alvez joins the BAU team, which is tasked with capturing a killer who escaped prison with 13 other convicts.

See how well the team works together tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, The Goldbergs, Lethal Weapon, Speechless, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Whose Line is It Anyway?, Worst Cooks in America, black-ish, Chicago PD, & Cutthroat Kitchen.
