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.

Last week, Superstore took a week off, but tonight it returns for the first of the final three weeks of the season. In the last episode, Glenn brought all of his past and present foster kids to the store to take a family photo for wife Jerusha. Cheyenne offered to watch toddler Bobbie Sue but almost immediately lost sight of her. So Garrett and Dina helped build a baby trap out of a plastic container and a toilet plunger, with some black licorice for bait, and shockingly, it worked! Meanwhile, Mateo tricked some of the kids into doing his work for him, while he used them as a sounding board to deal with his breakup blues. And when Jonah made a connection with 25-year-old Kristen, Glenn asked Amy to take the fall as he tried to break them up.

This show has such a great ensemble of characters. No matter how they are paired up each week, there’s always so much chemistry and so many laughs. That said, I’m a little nervous about tonight’s episode, as it marks the return of Cheyenne’s fiancé, Bo, who was easily my least favorite part of the first season. I’m hoping that somehow having a new baby has mellowed him out a bit. I’m also interested to see how the whole Jonah and Amy “will they or won’t they” plays out in these final three episodes of the season… Will they build to some kind of cliffhanger in the season finale?

On tonight’s episode, “Spring Cleaning,” a “spring cleaning” day is initiated by Glenn, and Amy and Garrett snoop into abandoned photos during the cleanup. Also, Jonah tries to gain Glenn’s approval, and Cheyenne’s fiancé begins working at the store to make fast cash for their wedding.

See what Amy and Garrett find in the pictures tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Catch, The Amazing Race, Powerless, The Blacklist, MasterChef: Junior, and Kicking & Screaming.

Tonight, I’m both excited to see how the first season of Trial & Error will come to an end but also sad that these could be the final two episodes of this hilarious NBC series. Last week, Larry’s trial got underway, and the prosecution spent almost 28 days making their case. By the time it was finally the defense’s turn, Summer was starting to look like a suspect, and Josh wanted to put her on the stand in order to cast reasonable doubt for Larry. However, when Josh went against Larry’s wishes and called Summer to the stand, Larry exclaimed that he was guilty of killing Margaret, which was met with cheers from the prosecution and a horrified look from Josh.

Is Larry really guilty of killing his wife? And if not, who is the real killer and what was their motive? Will the judge take Larry’s outburst as a legal admission of guilt, or will Josh find some other way to try to clear Larry that doesn’t involve Summer? This show has been thoroughly entertaining and delightful. Every week the episodes have had me laughing out loud. I can’t wait to see how this trial ends and learn who was responsible for Margaret’s murder. I really hope this series gets picked up and we get to see this misfit defense team work on another case in this hilarious backwoods town!

On the first half of tonight’s 2-episode finale, “The Defense Rests,” Josh focuses on making his final case before closing arguments and takes a huge gamble by putting Larry on the stand. Despite hiring the best witness coach in the South to train him, Larry’s testimony leads to a shocking discovery about Larry’s past that may be too difficult to overcome. Then, in “The Verdict,” the trial is over and the verdict is announced. In other events, a key piece of evidence is found that answers the question of who killed Margaret Henderson.

Catch the two episodes and find out once and for all who killed Margaret Henderson tonight on NBC at a special time of 10:01/9:01c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, Imaginary Mary, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Prison Break, iZombie, The Americans, Cosplay Melee, and The Detour.

Grey’s Anatomy has been getting back to its old self lately as week after week it has been making me tear up, but last week had me in full ugly cry mode. Watching Maggie deal with her mother’s illness and try to fix it was heartbreaking. The worst part was at the end when her mother died. the anguish on her face was intense and very moving. I’m not sure where she’s going to go now, but I’m concerned about the speech her mother gave her about letting go and making mistakes, because there are a lot of complicated relationships on the show she could end up making even more complex. One of those is April and Jackson. Rumor has it she may end up with Jackson, and that will really make me sad because I am a fan of Jackson getting back together with April officially. Regardless of which path she takes, one thing for sure is that it’s going to be a very bumpy emotional ride.

On tonight’s episode, “What’s Inside,” when Maggie takes on a big case, many of the doctors are worried she’s not the right one for the job while Stephanie makes a mistake, treating one of Grey Sloan’s own.

To find out if Maggie can handle the case or crash and burn, tune in to ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Chicago Med, MasterChef: Junior, Kicking and Screaming, The Amazing Race, and The Catch.

Tonight, Archer moves to FXX as the series kicks off its eighth season. This show is constantly finding fun, unique, new ways to reinvent itself to keep things fresh and interesting. The sixth season’s “Archer Vice” put the gang in the drug business, and in the seventh season, the group moved to Los Angeles to start a private detective firm, The Figgis Agency. Last season ended in a bit of a cliffhanger – Sterling Archer was seemingly dead, floating in a pool, with blood running out of bullet holes in his body.

So how will the show reinvent itself this year? The new season, titled “Dreamland,” picks up three months later, with Archer in a coma. As he lies sleeping in his hospital bed, there is an elaborate story taking place in Archer’s dreams. It is 1947, and Archer is a hardboiled private eye who discovers that his partner, Woodhouse, has been murdered. As Archer looks for the killer, he crosses paths with all of his real-world acquaintances, each with a new role to play in this noir fantasy world inside his head. [Note from Jenny: So…sort of like Bones? LOL]

I appreciate how the series creators are willing to shake things up each season and give viewers something fresh and new, while also maintaining the same fun and spirit of the show that fans are used to. I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere, and I’m looking forward to seeing how this mystery plays out and how they have fun re-purposing characters in Archer’s dream world. It looks like there are going to be lots of twists and turns to Archer’s dreamland case.

There’s also a fun new interactive element to the show this year. There’s a newly released augmented reality app for phones/tablets that fans can use while watching the series to solve cases like Archer or enter giveaways to win cool prizes. More information on the free app can be found here: NoReruns.net

On tonight’s premiere, “Archer Dreamland: No Good Deed,” Archer tries to find out who killed his partner but accidentally gets in bed with Mother, a notorious L.A. crime boss.

Meet Mother and see Archer’s dream world tonight on FXX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, black-ish, Designated Survivor, Survivor, Criminal Minds, Brockmire, Schitt’s Creek, Hollywood Darlings, The Magicians, The Expanse, Major Crimes, and Nobodies.
