Tonight, HBO’s high-tech comedy, Silicon Valley, returns for its fourth season on HBO. As the third season ended, the guys had realized they had only beta tested their new Pied Piper app with engineers, and even though it was a great program, it was too complicated for the general user to understand, so the adoption rate was extremely slow. So Richard hired a foreign click farm in order to fudge the numbers. Once Laurie got wind of this, she decided it was time for her to take her money out of the company. When she said she was selling her shares to the despicable person who made her the best offer, the guys feared she meant Gavin Belson. However, they were thrilled to learn that it was Erlich and Big Head who bought her shares, who had just barely outbid their overly confident competitor. But Gavin has hired former Pied Piper CEO Jack Barker at Hooli, and it seems like the pair has hatched some sort of revenge plan.

I just really enjoy this show. Having worked in the high-tech industry for a long time, I find these characters and situations so relatable and fun to watch. I love the quick pace of the series and how each episode always ends with some kind of big twist or reveal that makes you want to immediately see what happens next. I’m really curious to see how things play out now that Elrich is sort of in charge. Who will be the CEO of Pied Piper, what kind of crazy new characters will we meet, how will Gavin mess up things again at Hooli this season, and what do he and Jack Barker have planned?

I’m giving away a copy of the third season of Silicon Valley on Blu-ray at NoReruns.net, and today is the final day to enter. You can find the giveaway at: http://www.noreruns.net/2017/04/03/giveaway-win-silicon-valley-season-3-on-blu-ray/

On tonight’s premiere, “Success Failure,” the guys struggle to find funding for Pied Piper’s video-chat app to keep up with their rapidly growing user base. Meanwhile, Erlich encounters resistance from Big Head’s dad; Gavin clashes with Jack Barker at Hooli; and Richard hatches a revolutionary idea that could change his future.

See if the guys can find the funding they need tonight on HBO at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, Bob’s Burgers, Making History, The Last Man on Earth, Into the Badlands, Mary Kills People, The Leftovers, Veep, and Guerrilla.

Tonight, the seventh season of AMC’s The Walking Dead comes to a close. In last week’s episode, Sasha had been captured by the Saviors and was given the choice to join Negan or die. While Eugene hoped that she would give in like he did, he offered her the poison pill he had created a few episodes back in case she wanted to take the quick way out. Meanwhile, in the Hilltop, Gregory contemplated killing Maggie while her back was turned but ultimately couldn’t bring himself to do it – in fact, despite all his talk, he’s never even killed a single walker. And elsewhere, Rick and his crew raided Oceanside, as peacefully as possible, getting the guns they need for the forthcoming battle. When the group returned to Alexandria, Rosita revealed that she had brought back Dwight with her and that he wanted to help Rick take out Negan.

Can Dwight really be trusted? Will Gregory reveal Rick’s plan to Negan when he visits the Sanctuary? Or will we finally see all of these various groups of survivors band together and make their move against the Saviors? It should be an exciting season finale, and I’m looking forward to seeing if Rick and the gang will finally avenge the deaths of Glenn, Abraham, and the others who were brutally murdered by Negan or else see what kind of dangerous predicament they will be left in for next season.

On tonight’s 90-minute finale, “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life,” the stakes keep mounting higher and higher as different stories clash, while the group enacts an intricate plan.

See if Negan gets his comeuppance tonight on AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Match Game, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Making History, The Last Man on Earth, Into the Badlands, Big Little Lies, and Crashing.

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.

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.

I love when franchises/shows do crossovers. We’ve seen it a lot in the #OneChicago universe, but tonight, we’re not only getting the biggest crossover to date, but they’re introducing the new Chicago Justice, as well! The action will start off in Chicago Fire and move from there into Chicago PD, finishing off in the courtroom with Chicago Justice. But don’t think that just because Chicago Med isn’t on the list that we won’t see the docs and nurses there. There will be plenty of action taking place at the hospital, so as the exec producer said in a recent TV Line interview, it’s like four shows taking place in three hours. But be aware… Tonight’s case is based on the headlines…on the Bay Area warehouse fire from just a few months ago. I trust that the show will treat the memory of those affected with respect, but if it’s something that is sensitive for you, you might want to skip tonight’s crossover.

As for the newest in the strong Chicago lineup, Philip Winchester stars as prosecutor Peter Stone, the Assistant State’s Attorney and Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Bureau. His character has a fantastic tie-in to a great Law & Order character: he’s the son of renowned New York City District Attorney Ben Stone (played in Law & Order by Michael Moriarty). Carl Weathers plays Mark Jefferies, the Cook County State’s Attorney who is more into politics than Stone is. The prosecution’s team also includes Assistant State’s Attorney Anna Valdez (Monica Barbaro), Laura Nagel (Joelle Carter), a tough-as-nails State’s Attorney Investigator, and Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda, who moved over from Chicago PD), a level-headed and by-the-book detective turned Chief Investigator.

On tonight’s episode of Chicago Fire, “Deathtrap,” fire and rescue are called when an old warehouse-turned-work space turns into a firestorm, trapping countless victims; the doctors and nurses of Chicago Med deal with a barrage of patients as victims of the disaster are brought through the doors.

Then on Chicago PD’s “Emotional Proximity,” Olinsky’s daughter is in critical condition following a massive warehouse fire; Voight investigates the fire’s potential origins; intelligence examines connections between the building owner, those who were inside, and potential arson suspects.

Finally, on Chicago Justice’s “Fake,” Peter Stone and his team, including investigator Antonio Dawson, try to bring a warehouse arsonist to justice, and the suspect’s high-powered attorney tries to get his client acquitted.

Catch all the action and drama tonight on NBC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, Criminal Minds, Major Crimes, Property Brothers, Bakers vs. Fakers, & Six.
