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.

The last new episode of Chicago PD was part of the #OneChicago crossover, where Olinsky’s daughter was one of the victims in the warehouse fire started by a guy who was angry at a girl who he felt ignored his attentions. He thought they had something special, but she didn’t really know him. He just friended her on social media. He was wackadoo, and lots of people were killed, including Olinsky’s daughter, who died from her injuries. It was a crazy intense night of episodes and really sad but a great crossover.

Chicago PD is my favorite of the #OneChicago shows, and I’m so glad it’s back tonight. As a Linstead (Lindsay/Halstead) shipper, I am a little nervous about the guest star who starts tonight for a small arc, but the producer’s said that she won’t be a romantic rival for Erin, so I’ll keep my hopes up that they don’t screw up my favorite couple! Also, we haven’t had a lot of time to focus on Adam being back yet, so it’ll be interesting to see how the story line with him and Burgess goes!

On tonight’s episode, “Remember the Devil,” after being tipped off about a woman running barefoot through the woods, Intelligence is led to a kidnapping victim locked up in a shipping container. The bizarre scenario leaves Voight questioning the legitimacy of the case and sends the team on a twisted trail to get to the bottom of it. Meanwhile, a former relationship of Halstead’s comes back into the picture, much to the surprise of Lindsay.

See how the team solves the case tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, Chopped Junior, Cooks vs. Cons, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Major Crimes, & Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.

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’m so excited for tonight’s third/final season premiere of Review with Forrest MacNeil. In the first season, critic Forrest MacNeil decided to review life experiences, but his mistake was leaving the choice of those experiences up to his viewers. Forrest takes his job very seriously and commits himself fully to every review. While some of the suggestions were harmless, like eating pancakes, things quickly escalated when viewers started suggesting things like having an affair and killing someone. By the end of the first season, Forrest’s wife had left him and his life had pretty much been destroyed. It seemed like there was nowhere else to go in the second season, but Forrest returned to his job and tried to create some additional guidelines to prevent horrible things from happening again. However, things still escalated quickly, and Forrest found himself joining a cult and caused both of his father’s homes to burn to the ground. Forrest started to suspect that his producer Grant had been the person who destroyed his life, giving him these insane experiences to review. At the end of the second season, he confronted Grant, and the two of them wound up going over the edge of a tall bridge into the rough water below, presumably dead.

This is one of my all-time favorite series. I love how completely Forrest commits to his job and always maintains his integrity, even if the situation that results is dangerous and detrimental to his own well-being. I constantly find myself both laughing out loud and horrified at the same time while watching this show. Tonight the series is back to wrap up Forrest’s story with a shortened third season. How did Forrest survive the fall, and did Grant survive as well? What is next for Forrest – is it too late for him to repair and rebuild his life? Was Grant really the mastermind behind the destruction of Forrest’s life, or maybe A.J. was sick of being pushed into the background by her co-star? I can’t wait to see how this final chapter plays out!

If you want to relive Forrest’s past adventures or need to catch up before the final season, Comedy Central has made all 19 episodes of the first 2 seasons available at ComedyCentral.com.

On tonight’s premiere, “Locorito, Pet Euthanasia, Dream,” Forrest reviews a new product at a Mexican restaurant; experiences putting a pet to sleep; and learns what it’s like to fulfill a dream.

See how Forrest made it out of the river alive tonight on Comedy Central at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Snatch, Grey’s Anatomy, Superstore, The Blacklist: Redemption, MasterChef: Junior, Kicking & Screaming, and Colony.

Recap/Review – This Is Us – 3/16/17

In this week’s episode of This Is Us (titled: “Moonshadow”), Jack headed to Cleveland to meet with Rebecca at her first gig. In the past, we learned the circumstances about how Jack and Rebecca met.

Recap:

Jack is newly home from Vietnam and is working as a freelance mechanic for chump change so he can move him and his mom out of his parents’ house where his dad continues to berate him every chance he gets. He and his friend, Daryl, have high hopes of purchasing an auto shop. When Daryl asks how much Jack made that day, Jack tells him he made a fiver from Mrs. Peabody (the owner of his future Chevelle), and he ended up with a blind date.

Rebecca is with her friends, who seem to be on the “right” path while she is singing at open mic nights and recording a demo. The girls encourage Rebecca to have a backup plan while harping her about her “plus one” for the upcoming wedding. She tells them that she will probably come alone and turns down the offer for a blind date. Later, Rebecca receives a rejection letter about her demo, then calls her friend to now accept the offer for the blind date.
