The Mick has turned out to be one of my favorite new comedies this season. Last week, Chip got caught with a lewd photo on his phone and had to go in front of the school’s honor-board. Sabrina was overseeing the trial and wasn’t going to let her brother get off easy. Chuck refused to give the names of the students who sent the photo…until he realized that the photo he had pleasured himself to was of his sister. After puking several times, he immediately gave up the names. Meanwhile, Mickey had a scared-straight speech with Ben about what happens to “rats,” so when he witnessed a man keying the family’s expensive car, he refused to tell Alba what he knew.

This show is so hilarious. Every week I find myself laughing out loud. The writing also seems to be getting better each week, as the writers find new and clever ways to intersect the various story lines and pair up the characters. I can’t wait to see what crazy, messed-up antics the family gets up to tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “The Mess,” Mickey dumps the “cool aunt” persona and decides to lay down the law when the kids ignore her attempts at disciplining them.

See how Mickey stands up to the kids tonight on FOX at 8:31/7:31c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Wall, Bones, Imposters, Detroiters, Switched at Birth, Face Off, and Teachers.

Last week’s NCIS dealt with a congresswoman who was receiving threats, including a dead rat left in her car with a note saying she was next. The woman didn’t seem to take them seriously at all, until her assistant was killed. She annoyed me the entire episode. I guess you have to admire her “can do” attitude, but it was “must get elected, no matter the consequences, and that irritated me. I did call who the killer was. Shame on the assistant’s girlfriend! And I was kind of shocked to see Vance and the congresswoman flirting and agreeing to go out on a date. (Again, she annoyed me there. She was way too…take-charge, too…I dunno…something, for me. LOL)

I love holiday episodes on my procedurals, and I have loved all the episodes of NCIS where we see a young Ducky. So combine those two things, and I know I’m going to love tonight’s episode! Plus, Fornell is back, and he’s a riot, especially his interactions with Gibbs.

On tonight’s episode, “The Tie That Binds,” after the NCIS team tracks evidence from the murder of a Navy captain to Ducky’s deceased mother, Ducky looks back and questions a pivotal life choice he made 37 years ago. Also, the team exchanges holiday gifts, and Gibbs spends Christmas dinner with Fornell. Adam Campbell returns as Young Ducky, and Juliette Angelo returns as Emily Fornell.

Find out what choice Ducky questions tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chopped Junior, American Housewife, Bull, MasterChef Canada, Aftermath, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

ncis1122smallLast week’s NCIS was a sad one, case-wise. The witness in a murder case was a former Marine, but when the team looked into him as a suspect before they knew he was just a witness, it caught the attention of Immigration, who came for him, as the guy had never formally become a citizen after moving from Mexico with his mother as a young child. He assumed like many do that when he served in the military, citizenship was automatically granted. So Bishop and Torres were sent to get him from where he’d been spotted and picked up and bring him back to NCIS to turn over to Immigration. He begged to visit his mother first, so Bishop and Torres agreed, even lying to his mother about who they were and where he was going, saying he was rejoining the Marines and being sent overseas again, rather than being deported. I didn’t really understand that… What, is he just never going to tell his mother?? Seemed a little silly, but whatever. I’m hoping that we’ll revisit this story line again later, with Gibbs finding a way to help the guy and bring him back legally to the US.

On a personal front, Tony’s father was in town to sublet Tony’s apartment, since he was staying in Paris with his daughter for an unspecified length of time. Senior couldn’t figure out who to give the apartment to, since McGee, Bishop, and Abby wanted to sublet it. In the end, he and Jimmy drew names, and to everyone’s surprise, Torres won the draw. He gave it to McGee & Delilah. I guess that’s fair, given that McGee and Tony worked together and were friends for years, but…whatever. 🙂 It was fun to see McGee, Bishop, and Abby compete to win Senior’s affection. McGee tried to appeal to his romantic/family side, showing him a photo album he’d put together of himself and Delilah, telling him about their engagement. Bishop wrote a long, wordy essay. And Abby tried to show him how much she loved spending time with him by having him come to the lab, etc.

On tonight’s episode, “Enemy Combatant,” after NCIS Agent Bishop is sent to Gitmo to gather evidence for a Navy chaplain murder case, she questions her previous work at the NSA. Also, Bishop’s brothers, George, John, and Robert (Ryan Doom, Jesse Bradford, and Jesse Johnson), visit for the Thanksgiving holiday and pester her co-workers to find out who she is dating.

Find out why Bishop questions her work at the NSA tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

aftermath927smallTonight, Syfy kicks off the new supernatural apocalyptic thriller, Aftermath. The people of Washington State find themselves under a constant barrage of catastrophic weather and phenomenons of biblical proportions. The news is overrun with stories of earthquakes, storms, rampant disease with zombie-like side effects, and missing people, plus warnings of approaching meteorites, a solar storm, and a Category-5 hurricane on the way. As the state issues an evacuation order, the Copeland family decides to bunker down and wait out the storm in their home. Patriarch Joshua (James Tupper, Men in Trees) is a university professor of religion, archaeology, and myth, his wife Karen (Anne Heche, Men in Trees) is a former member of the Air Force, and the couple has three children. Son Matt (Levi Meadon, Olympus) was a star high school athlete sidelined by a torn ACL, who now wants to join the Peace Corps. Seventeen-year-old fraternal twins Dana (Julia Sarah Stone, The Killing) and Briana (Taylor Hickson, Deadpool) couldn’t be more different – the latter being much more of a wild child than her more practical sister.

As the storm clears up, the Copelands exit their home to discover that all is not well – their front lawn is covered in dead fish like a Biblical plague; they are visited by some strangers whose strange behavior quickly becomes violent; and daughter Briana is abducted by a supernatural force. As Joshua tries to make sense of what he just witnessed, the family hops into their RV and heads toward the Army Reserve-controlled Quarantine Zone in neighboring Yakima, hoping to be reunited with their daughter there. But the more they witness, the more the Copelands realize the end of the world is upon them.

What is going on? Is there any hope for humanity? I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere – just as you think things are already weird enough, they get stranger and stranger! The action-packed series is like a blend of The Walking Dead with its zombie-like threat, Fear the Walking Dead which follows a family trying to survive at the outset of an outbreak, and Invasion of the Body Snatchers where you can’t really tell who has become one of the dangerous Feverheads. And add to this entertaining mix lots of other elements from apocalyptic, end-of-days, disaster, and survival films. The cast is great, and it was especially fun to see Men in Trees love interests (& real-life husband/wife) James Tupper and Anne Heche reunited as a married couple. I’m really looking forward to seeing more of this series, as it looks like it’s going to be a wild ride!

On tonight’s episode, “RVL 6768,” in the face of natural disasters, supernatural creatures, and a horrifying plague, the Copeland Family fights to survive the end of the world.

Witness the beginning of the end tonight on Syfy at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., This Is Us, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, Scream Queens, Halt and Catch Fire, and Chrisley Knows Best.

ncis517smallTonight is Tony’s last hurrah on NCIS. I do hope he’ll be in it more than he’s been the previous three episodes! Last week, the manhunt for Jacob Scott continued, but there were a lot of twists and turns. First, an old “friend,” CIA agent Trent Kort (who worked undercover with La Grenouille, blew Tony’s cover to Jeanne, and lost his eye to the Port-to-Port killer), showed up at the latest victim’s house. He and new-guy-next-season Clayton Reeves, thought the other was the killer. Scott was shown on video searching for…Ziva David, which of course freaked out Tony and the rest of the team, especially when Tony tried calling her and her cell phone had been disconnected and she didn’t respond to his emails. Then…Scott showed up at NCIS, saying he’d been framed and hadn’t killed anyone. He said he was looking for Ziva because his dead wife had left a note at the safe house saying that Ziva’s father had files proving Scott had been set up. After Abby analyzed blood found on the latest victim’s clothing, it proved that the REAL killer was…Trent Kort! THEN, the episode ended with the team thinking they needed to follow Kort to Israel to warn Ziva, only to see on the news that there was an explosion…at the David farmhouse. Eek!

So will Ziva make a surprise appearance? It happened on ER. George Clooney, who swore he wasn’t returning for Julianna Margulies’s final episode, as did the show itself, turned up as a total shocker to fans. Both the show and Cote de Pablo herself have sworn that she won’t be back, but…will she? Personally, I want Tony with Jeanne, but I know a TON of fans want him to ride off into the sunset with Ziva. Whatever happens, I just hope it’s worthy of his 13 years on the show. (Just FYI… The episode description for tonight is VERY vague and…well, wrong, but it’s literally the only description I could find on my DVR and four different websites!)

On tonight’s season finale, “Family First,” NCIS, FBI and MI6 continue an international manhunt for an escaped British spy who is targeting current and former agents. Robert Wagner, Sarah Clarke, & Duane Henry guest star.

See Tony’s final episode tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, The Real O’Neals, Chicago Med, NCIS: NOLA, Chicago Fire, Chopped, & Person of Interest.
