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, Disney Channel launches the new series Tangled: The Series, a follow-up to the hit 2010 animated feature film, with Mandy Moore (This Is Us) & Zachary Levi (Chuck) reprising their roles as Rapunzel & Eugene Fitzherbert. A couple weeks ago, Disney Channel aired an hour-long TV movie, Tangled Before Ever After, which followed the events of the film and set things up for the series. Princess Rapunzel, who had become a short-haired brunette by the end of the film, was deeply in love with Eugene but wanted to take some time to enjoy their relationship before getting married. However, her parents still wanted to keep her locked up in the castle, safe from the dangers of the world. One night she sneaked out of the castle with her lady-in-waiting, Cassandra (Eden Espinosa), and came across some magical rock spires that caused her ridiculously long blonde hair to grow back, which Rapunzel desperately tried to hide from her parents. The next day, Rapunzel’s coronation was interrupted by the rogue Lady Kane, who was out for revenge on the royal family. However, Rapunzel was able to use her extremely versatile new hair to save the day, along with help from Eugene and his frying pan and Cassandra and her sword skills.

The series looks like it will be a lot of fun, following Rapunzel, Eugene, and Cassandra as they go on new adventures, meet new characters, and encounter mystical new threats. The 2D animation style of the series is very different from that of the original film, but I found it just as delightful. I had a great time revisiting these characters in the recent TV movie, and I look forward to seeing more stories set in this world.

On tonight’s premiere, “What the Hair?!” Rapunzel and Cassandra venture out to a wizard’s cottage to find out what happened to her hair.

Catch the fun tonight on Disney Channel at 7:30/6:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grimm & Sleepy Hollow.

We’re down to the final two episodes of Bones (I won’t say EVER, since stuff seems to come back from the Cancellation Zone quite regularly. LOL), and it’s been quite the roller coaster all the way around. Last week was a fun one, like so many of them are. A body crash landed on a car, shocking the driver into going off-road and plowing into a tree, which made the car catch on fire…which didn’t do a whole lot for the body in the windshield! It turned out to be a mattress salesman turned aspiring writer/director who was killed by his second-in-command at the mattress store because he was coming back to work at the store full-time and she was going back to being second, not the one in charge. But the funniest part of the case was the actual movie (a horrible B-movie plot with even worse effects, acting, etc) and the fact that David Faustino (Bud Bundy from Married… with Children) played himself and was the lead in the movie. I love when actors play exaggerated versions of themselves, and he was no exception. Booth put Aubrey in charge of the case, and while he pushed Aubrey throughout, it turned out that he was doing it to test him because the LA field office was interested in Aubrey for a promotion/move to LA. So it looks like FBI Agent James Aubrey will now be FBI Supervisory Special Agent James Aubrey, but he’ll be moving to LA! (On a side note, Booth and Brennan ran into Betty White – or rather, Dr. Mayer, played by Betty White – and learned that she’s retiring because her passion for the work was gone. That got Brennan thinking, and it seemed like we were supposed to think SHE was losing her passion, when in reality, she confronted Wendell about his true passion not being forensic anthropology. He agreed, but that story kind of…fizzled out. Okay, great. So he’s not as passionate about it as Brennan, and maybe the Jeffersonian isn’t where he needs to be. So we’re going to end the series on that note for him?! Damn…)

There’s still so much story left to tell and only two episodes left to tell it. Will the team be able to get Zack set free? Will Cam and Aristoo get married? Will Angela and Hodgins have another baby? How will the series end? With everyone happy and still at the Jeffersonian/FBI? Or will they quit like they did in the past? I’ve seen both episodes and was both happy and unhappy with how it all goes down. I will say, though, that in true Bones fashion, you won’t want to stop watching till the very end!

On tonight’s episode, “The Day in the Life,” Brennan testifies for Zach; Angela reveals some big news; Aubrey and Jessica come to terms about their future; when the team learns Kovac has escaped, Booth rushes to protect those he loves. Cyndi Lauper guest stars.

Don’t miss the penultimate episode tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Trial & Error, Chicago Fire, & Chopped.

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.

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.
