I was really hyped when I heard that MacGyver and Hawaii Five-0 would be doing a crossover, because I love both shows and think it could be amazing. After reading details in an interview with one of the producers or whatever, I’m not as excited. It should still be fun, but they could have done SO MUCH MORE. Regardless, it looks like a fun episode of MacGyver, and I always love the gang in Hawaii, so… Just FYI… Other than a mention of Mac (& the team?) on Hawaii Five-0, the crossover ONLY happens in MacGyver.

On tonight’s episode of MacGyver, “Flashlight,” when Mac and the team travel to Hawaii to aid in earthquake relief efforts, they team up with Chin and Kono from the Five-0 task force to rescue a group of government scientists trapped in a building. However, as they work on the complicated rescue, a group using the chaos as a distraction aims to steal the top-secret weaponry from the scientists. Taylor Willy also guest stars as Kamekona.

Then on Hawaii Five-0, “Puka ‘ana (Exodus),” McGarrett and Kono suspect that an abused young girl may be the victim of a sex trafficking ring on the Island. Also, Chin and Grover investigate a murder at a sober living facility.

Get two hours of fun in Hawaii tonight on CBS, starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Grimm, Last Man Standing, & Blue Bloods.

Last week’s Wesen on Grimm was creepy – and that’s saying something, considering how many different, creepy Wesens we’ve seen throughout the series! A guy living at a rundown hotel was freaking out because he swore a monster was attacking him when he went to sleep, so he’d driven himself crazy by staying awake as much as possible. Turns out it was the hotel’s owner, who couldn’t sleep unless she stole it from others. And she did that by turning into this monster-looking thing with a huge, gaping mouth with lots of teeth-looking/sucker things and basically swallowing the person’s face as she siphoned out the sleep pheromones or whatever. It was creepy. LOL Meanwhile, back at the Spice Shop, Monroe, Rosalee, and Eve figure out that the symbols Eve carved in the tunnel are a calendar – a mix of different centuries and civilizations, such as Sumerian and Mayan – but instead of being a date in the far-distant past…it’s a future date: March 24, 2017! What the…?? I guess we’ll find out!

I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and it’s honestly one of the funniest ones of the series. I laughed out loud so many times. Hank, especially, was hysterical. Russell Hornsby kills it in this one. My favorite Hank episode ever, I think. Plus, we get more Diana creepiness but with an amusing twist.

On tonight’s episode, “Blind Love,” Rosalee surprises Monroe with a getaway for his birthday and invites most of the gang to join them. Things take a shocking turn when a hotel employee targets Nick in an effort to avenge his father. Meanwhile, Eve gets a visit from a dark force that she has seen before. Elsewhere, Capt. Renard spends the weekend with Diana when a former ally decides to get even.

See what happens on the birthday getaway tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, MacGyver, Rosewood, Hawaii Five-0, & Blue Bloods.

Last week on Hawaii Five-0, a teenager was undergoing hypnosis therapy after being diagnosed with PTSD, only for him to tell his therapist he’d witnessed a murder. At first he was worried that he’d been the one to commit it, but after investigating and getting him under hypnosis a couple more times, come to find out it was his mother who did the killing. One night, after she’d been drinking and fighting with his father, she took the boy and planned to go stay at a hotel. Unfortunately, she ran into the victim, a teenage girl, and scared about the consequences, she killed her by bashing her head in with a rock and then buried her. Her son got out of the car to find her in time to witness it. Man, that had to have been a shock to learn his mother had done that and he’d witnessed it! The kid’s father didn’t know either, poor guy. But at least that meant the kid still had his dad. Elsewhere, Danny’s sister was in Hawaii on a work conference, and Danny realized she was close – too close – to a guy she worked with. He convinced her that cheating wasn’t going to be good for her and that he was always there for her, no matter how far apart they lived. It was sweet, and I loved seeing Missy Peregrym, even though I don’t like her hair as much that short!)

Tonight’s episode should be outstanding. My heart broke for Chin when his niece, Sara, had to go live with her grandparents in Mexico after he’d really begun feeling like a father to her. He was worried that they were involved in the same dealings their son Gabriel had been, but nothing turned up with his investigation, so he had no choice but to let her go. Fortunately, that story line is being revisited tonight, and I’m hoping he (& we) get a much more positive outcome this go round!

On tonight’s episode, “Ka’ili aku (Snatchback),” Five-0 races to Mexico where Chin puts his life on the line after his niece Sara is kidnapped. Duane “Dog” Chapman returns as himself and George Takei returns as Chin’s Uncle Choi.

See if Chin and the rest of Five-0 can rescue Sara and bring her back to Hawaii where she belongs tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

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

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.

macgyver923smallThis season, I was looking forward to two new shows in particular: Lethal Weapon, which everyone seems to have enjoyed more than they thought they would…and the other? Tonight’s premiere of MacGyver. I was a big fan when I caught the original series on repeats years ago, and Lucas Till is adorable. So I had high hopes – and after seeing a screener for the first episode a couple of weeks ago, I have to say I wasn’t disappointed in the least. In case you don’t know…

Angus “Mac” MacGyver is a young special agent in a clandestine organization within the US government, and his specialty is basically being able to do almost anything with almost nothing – like disarming a bomb with nothing but a paperclip. In the original series, MacGyver is a bit older and has been around a while. So this iteration is us seeing Mac in his younger years, before he turns into the MacGyver from the original series. In this one, Mac works with former CIA agent Jack Dalton (George Eads, CSI) and Riley Davis (Tristin Mays), a computer hacker they “break out” of jail to help with their case but who ends up an integral member of the team. Their boss Patricia Thornton is played by Sandrine Holt, and Mac’s roommate, Wilt Bozer, who doesn’t know what Mac really does, is played by Justin Hires (from TV’s failed Rush Hour drama).

On tonight’s episode, “The Rising,” Angus “Mac” MacGyver and Jack Dalton, special agents for the Department of External Services (DXS), join forces to recover a missing bioweapon that has the ability to destroy hundreds of thousands of people with one single drop.

Meet Mac, Jack, and Riley tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

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