Early this morning, Netflix dropped all 10 episodes of the first season of its new zombie comedy, Santa Clarita Diet. Husband and wife realtors Joel (Timothy Olyphant, Justified) and Sheila Hammond (Drew Barrymore) live a very boring, straight-laced life in the suburbs of Santa Clarita, CA, along with teenage daughter Abby (Liv Hewson, Dramaworld). They tend to keep their frustrations bottled up inside to keep from ruffling any feathers. That is, until Sheila undergoes a dramatic change that (ironically) gives her a new zest for life and an insatiable hunger. As they try to understand Sheila’s new condition, the Hammonds seek the advice of the nerdy teenager next door, Eric Bemis (Skyler Gisondo, Psych), who has a crush on Abby. Keeping Sheila’s hunger under control is of utmost importance, especially with Eric’s stepfather – L.A. sheriff’s department cop Dan (Ricardo Chavira, Desperate Housewives) – keeping a watchful eye.

I checked out the first two episodes, and I was instantly hooked. I found myself laughing out loud throughout, both from the writer and situational comedy as well as the hilarious physical humor. Drew Barrymore is so delightful and has great chemistry with Timothy Olyphant – the two of them are a perfect comedy duo and are joined by an equally-fun supporting cast. Just in the first two episodes, there were a lot of recognizable guest stars, and I look forward to seeing who else pops up throughout the rest of the season. I can’t wait to see how the rest of this unique and hilarious story plays out!

In the opener, the Hammonds are having trouble selling one of their listings, which continues to upset their boss (Andy Richter). New realtor Gary West (Nathan Fillion) moves into town and takes over the listing after Sheila has an extremely embarrassing incident in front of some potential buyers.

Check out the entire first season now on Netflix!

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Grimm, Emerald City, Sleepy Hollow, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

I’m always amazed at how much is on TV these days, and there’s no sign that things are slowing down anytime soon. Between Amazon and Netflix, entire seasons of four different shows are dropping today alone! I’m really looking forward to checking out Netflix’s new reality series, White Rabbit Project. “MythBusters” Kari Byron, Tory Belleci, and Grant Imahara have been reunited to investigate weird and wild events from history and pop culture in their fun, creative way. Some of the topics include jailbreaks, superpower technology, heists, and unconventional world war two weapons. The trio will devise experiments and build crazy contraptions, all in the name of uncovering the truth. The final season of MythBusters just didn’t feel the same without Kari, Tory, and Grant, so I’m thrilled to see that Netflix got the gang back together for more crazy, scientific fun!

Check out the fun investigations now on Netflix!

I’ll also be watching/recording Fuller House, Medici: Masters of Florence, MacGyver, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, LEGO Frozen Northern Lights, and Z Nation.

bluebloods1118smallI should have known it would work out on Blue Bloods last week, when the woman who’d been raped a few episodes before killed her rapist. When his new girlfriend (her former friend) wouldn’t listen to her warnings, she went to his place to warn him away, but he grabbed her by the throat and held her against the wall, so she shot him with the gun she’d brought with her. The current girlfriend said she didn’t see anything but later recanted when Erin emotionally blackmailed the rapist’s former attorney into representing the rape victim/killer. The guy got what he deserved, thank goodness. The other police story line was the sergeant who was at the bodega with his 10-year-old daughter before school, and a couple of guys came in to rob the place. Rather than confront them, which would have put his daughter in danger because there was no good place for her to hide, he kept himself and his daughter hidden from the bad guys. When they shot the kid working the register, he didn’t confront them, which earned him modified duty. But then later, he rushed into a dangerous situation, unarmed. He did a brave thing, but unfortunately, it got him shot. He was going to be fine, thankfully.

In other huge news (for shippers at least!), Eddie was jealous when Jamie offered his spare room to a young woman who got evicted from her apartment. Eddie denied being jealous, but then later, she came to Jamie’s apartment, admitted she has strong feelings for him, and after he admitted he has strong feelings for her as well, they kissed…twice! Finally! Unfortunately, they also don’t want to screw up their partnership and friendship, so I’m not sure where that story line will go. I want them to be partners so we can see them together, but I want them TOGETHER. Argh! Hopefully tonight we’ll see where it’s headed!

On tonight’s episode, “Confessions,” Frank is left with minimal information to find a missing boy when a conflicted priest who could help won’t break the seal of confession. Also, Danny and Baez investigate the death of a prominent New York City socialite with a secret life, and Jamie and Eddie attend a wedding together. Frankie J. Alvarez (Looking), Tim Guinee (Revolution, The Good Wife, Hell on Wheels), Stacy Keach (Crowded, Prison Break, Titus), & Chelsea Spack (Gotham) guest star.

See if they can find the missing boy and solve a murder tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, Last Man Standing, MacGyver, & Hawaii Five-0.

macgyver1111smallLast week on MacGyver, Mac had to go undercover in prison to help break out a Mexican drug kingpin in order to track the guy back to his cartel’s secret location so they could shut his organization down. Unfortunately things were a lot tougher than they anticipated. While Jack was undercover as a guard and was able to get Mac some of the things he needed, Riley was unable to connect up to the prison’s system because they’d recently done an update that blocked her way in. So Mac was pretty much on his own and had to get creative real quick. He was able to break himself and the drug guy out, but the drug guy then figured out Mac wasn’t on the up-and-up (or is that the down-and-down? LOL) and started to torture his identity out of him, but Mac started to fight back and then Jack and the good guys burst in right in time.

I had two favorite parts to this episode. We got to see Riley be vulnerable, remembering her time in prison and worrying about Mac. That was great. And when Mac was trapped in the bad guy’s trunk, he started flashing Morse code using the tail lights, hoping someone would pick up Jack’s name and phone number and call him and Jack would get the message that Mac was in trouble. That was pretty awesome!

On tonight’s episode, “Corkscrew,” when MacGyver comes face to face with Murdoc, an international assassin hired to kill him, Mac must defend both himself and Bozer, armed with only a corkscrew and paper towel rolls. Also, Bozer feels completely betrayed when he finally learns Mac’s true identity. David Dastmalchian guest stars.

See how Bozer deals with the truth about Mac tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

hawaiifiveo114smallLast week was the big Halloween episode for Hawaii Five-0, and there were some definite tricks and definite treats for viewers. On the treat side, seeing Jerry be so great with Grace and Charlie was a lot of fun. He went out of his way to make Halloween fun, especially for Charlie, since Danny had to work. Grace has turned into a snotty teenager, which is kind of fun to see, but I did love that she ended up dressing up and going trick-or-treating with them in the end. Another treat was seeing the gang get scared by the tricks hidden in the “haunted” house, as well as seeing Kono and Adam kicking ass and taking names as they got loose from the kidnappers – which brings me to the “tricks” part of the episode. How many times can one or both of them get taken? And are they EVER going to get some down time to just relax and enjoy being married?? I mean, really. Come on!

Tonight is the even bigger 150th episode, and it’s the return of some of the bigger names from the show’s previous 149 episodes. Michelle Borth is back as Catherine Rollins. Catherine last left Steve just before he was planning to propose, saying she was going for more relief work or whatever, but instead she was doing some undercover work. Christine Lahti is back as Doris McGarrett, Steve’s mother. Who knows what she’s been up to! And finally, Sarah Carter is back as Lynn, Steve’s latest love interest. Who knew they were still a thing?!

On tonight’s episode, “Ka makuahine a me ke keikikane (Mother and Son),” Five-0 must free McGarrett’s mother, Doris, when Catherine informs them that she was captured and is about to be executed after attempting to free Wo Fat’s imprisoned father. Also, Chin loses his appeal to have Sara’s adoption delayed, and she must move to Mexico. Emma Schlamme (Christine Lahti’s real-life daughter) is also guest starring as a younger Doris McGarrett!

See if Five-0 can save Doris and how Catherine’s return affects Steve tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, Last Man Standing, MacGyver, & Blue Bloods.
