I’m really enjoying having Philip Winchester on my TV each week, and Chicago Justice has been a great fit for him, even though he’s mostly been doing action shows/characters up till now. Last week was a tough one. An ex-Navy SEAL was killed shortly before he was supposed to get married. It turned out the killers were two of his best friends, his SEAL teammates, who killed him because he was writing a tell-all book about a botched mission they went on while on active duty and the fact that the Navy had covered up what really happened. During the investigation & subsequent trial, Stone was ordered by his boss not to offer the video (of the failed mission) the victim had kept secret, but he was able to skirt around that when one of the two killers mentioned the mission while on the stand. So instead of the video, the guy told what had happened, which got Stone around his boss’s orders – barely. Jefferies wasn’t happy, but he didn’t fire Stone, so…

One thing I don’t understand is the purpose of the DA’s investigators. Don’t get me wrong… I love Antonio and like Laura Nagel. But what do they do that the other police (the non-DA’s investigators) don’t? And like, on the description for tonight’s ep, why are they on scene of an apparent suicide? If it’s suicide, it wouldn’t be a case for the DA, so why are the DA’s investigators there? Ah well. Just a thought I had.

On tonight’s episode, “Dead Meat,” thirty miles outside of Chicago, the cancer riddled body of Chicago PD Officer Tim Cody is found dead in a bathtub. An apparent suicide. But when Antonio and Nagel arrive on scene, they quickly determine his death was murder. The trail leads to an old nemesis of Stone, and he has to make a new law to put him away. Michael Rispoli and Sofia Milos guest star.

Find out how Stone gets the bad guy tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Little Big Shots, NCIS: LA, Spring Baking Championship, & Cake Wars.

Scorpion is a show I watch every week with my 11-year-old daughter. She loves it because I feel like she identifies with the characters. She’s in a program for kids who are advanced for their age, but she definitely struggles with the social aspect of life. When she watches this show, she tells me things like “I get that” and “wow, it’s nice to see people I understand on television.” It may not seem like a big deal to some people, but to her it’s a huge deal. All of that positive connection stuff aside, this show never fails to amuse and still emotionally touch us.

Last episode, the team traveled to the rainforest to find a monkey that may carry the cure to a deadly disease that’s spreading through the area. It turned out that the cure was in the fruit that the monkey ate, which was on a tree that now needed to be protected from the illegal loggers. I was glad it all worked out, but what was really great about the episode was watching Walter at the end. He showed Cabe some true empathy, which made Paige realize that she actually hurt him when she was with Tim. That may be just the turning point we need for her to admit that she is in fact in love with him.

On tonight’s episode, “Broken Wind,” while on a mission to repair a turbine at a wind farm, Team Scorpion must race to save Paige and Happy before the cable holding the gondola they are in snaps and sends them plummeting to the ground.

To see if the team can save them before it’s too late, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching 24: Legacy, Man With a Plan, The Voice, Kevin Can Wait, APB, and Taken.

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.

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.
