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.

NBC’s Superstore is always one of the highlights of my Thursday night TV watching. Last week it was Valentine’s Day at Cloud 9, and Amy and Glenn tried to play matchmaker for Myrtle, but their attempts to set her up with another elderly employee resulted in a sexual harassment investigation. Meanwhile, Garrett learned about Mateo’s secret relationship with Jeff and tried to push his jealousy over Sandra’s pretend relationship to the boiling point. And Jonah went undercover to help Dina catch a shoplifter, but he ended up falling for his mark. So Dina made sure to burn that potential relationship to the ground by pretending that Jonah was the deadbeat father to her children. But in the end, Jonah was back to joking and having a good time with Amy as the two cleared the store of its Valentine’s Day decorations.

Earlier this week, NBC announced the wonderful news that Superstore had been picked up for a third season. This series just keeps getting funnier and funnier – this ensemble cast just works so well together and has really found their groove. When I was watching the show last week, I couldn’t help but be reminded of The Office, when that show was really firing on all cylinders. I’m so happy there are plenty more crazy adventures to come for the Cloud 9 crew.

On tonight’s episode, “Super Hot Store,” angry tensions magnify when the store’s thermostat breaks, leaving the staffers miserably hot inside Cloud 9. Meanwhile, Dina and Garrett find a way to pass the time, and Cheyenne helps Glenn through an existential crisis as he tries to fix the heater.

See how Dina and Garrett occupy themselves tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, The Great Indoors, Life in Pieces, Training Day, Powerless, The Blacklist, MasterChef Junior, My Kitchen Rules, Riverdale, Top Chef, and Colony.

Recap/Review – This Is Us – 2/14/17

This week’s episode of This Is Us (titled: “Jack Pearson’s Son”) was another emotional rollercoaster that put all of the Pearsons in tough spots.

Recap:

The past timeline
The Big Three are teenagers at this point, and Rebecca is about to leave for her tour with Ben and the band. Jack plans a special night for himself and Rebecca at O’Shannon’s for after her show on Valentine’s Day night. And while Jack seems very supportive, he admits to Miguel that he really doesn’t want her to go but also doesn’t want her to think he’s holding her back.

That afternoon, Rebecca overhears the Big Three talking about Kevin having sex with Sophie. When Rebecca and Jack sit down with Kevin to have “the talk,” Randall is having an anxiety attack about his Hamlet paper. Jack calms Randall down, ending the conversation with Kevin. Rebecca is worried that this isn’t the time for her to go on tour, and Jack reassures her, saying he can handle it.

On last week’s Criminal Minds, bodies (well, torsos…) were being found without the heads, legs, and arms. It was a creepy case of an abusive husband turning into a serial killer, but the team did catch up to him – just in time, too, before he could kill his husband. And poor Reid… He has his mom at home with him, trying to take care of her, but it’s a big job. He finally found someone who could handle helping him while he was out of town for work, but he’s keeping her in the dark with the mysterious drugs he’s giving his mom. He finally admitted at the end of the episode last week that trying to take care of her at home may be too much for him to handle. So what are the drugs he didn’t tell the caregiver about? And is he really going to move his mom to a home? And given the description for tonight’s episode, what in the world happened between last week and this?! I’ve read several places that this episode changes Reid’s life in a drastic way. I don’t think the actor is going anywhere, unless it’s the biggest secret the show’s ever kept. So…

On tonight’s episode, “Spencer,” when a BAU member gets in trouble in Mexico, the team enlists the services of the International Response Team for their help. Alana De La Garza & Daniel Henney from Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders guest star.

Find out why Reid is in Mexico tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, The Goldbergs, Hunted, Lethal Weapon, Cooks vs Cons, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, black-ish, Bakers vs Fakers, Chicago PD, Match Game, & Six.

Recap/Review – This Is Us – 2/7/17

This week’s episode of This Is Us (titled: “I Call Marriage”) explores the stages before, during, and after marriage between all of the Pearson clan, showcasing the good and the bad.

Recap:

Randall
Randall has a terrible dream, where he finds William dead at the piano. Something is off since having that dream, and everything seems to be going downhill for him this week. At work, the new guy, Sanjay, is slowly taking over Randall’s accounts. When he confronts his boss about it, it seems that Randall’s home life is starting to affect his previously long work hours. Then when Beth “called marriage,” telling Randall he had to go to Tess’s chess tournament over the work dinner, it seemed this was the last straw for Randall. His final scene showed him unable to hold on to a glass of water because his hands were shaking so much.

Kate
Kate is doing well at her immersion weight-loss camp. After one of her classes, Toby texts her with a message about a package waiting for her at the front desk. Turns out, the package is him! He wants to take Kate to a hotel for the day so they can catch up. Kate doesn’t want to leave because of the rigorous schedule of the camp, and Toby understands (sort of). And then there’s Duke. He’s continuing to hit on Kate, and then when he meets Toby, he makes an innuendo about Kate that doesn’t sit right with Toby, which is part of the reason he decides to stay. Later, Toby shows up at her sticks class with new threads and light-up sneakers. He treats the class like a joke, and Kate gets angry with him about it afterward. He tells her he misses her and his incisions aren’t healing like they are supposed to and he’s a little scared. When Kate tries to apologize, Toby gives her his grandmother’s ring and leaves. Later that night, Kate ends up outside of Cabin 13 (Duke’s cabin) with her finger hovering over Toby’s name in her cell phone.
