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.

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.

What a season it has been on NCIS: Los Angeles overall, and I’m glad we’ve finally got some closure on the mole story. Last episode Callen covered for his father when he found out his father had been following his sister and kidnapped the man she was seeing. He thought the guy was up to no good, but it turned out he was an informant for the police. It was nice to see Callen with his sister because it lets us see a different side of him. Also on last episode, Kensi was given the all-clear to return to regular duty, and she was very happy about that. It’s going to be great to have Deeks and Kensi back together again, which always leads to my favorite scenes because of their witty banter.

On tonight’s episode, “Queen Pin,” Sam assumes a former alias in a risky undercover operation to take down an elusive drug lord. Also, Hetty interrupts Callen and Anna’s romantic night to assign them a prisoner escort mission.

Find out what special assignment Hetty sends these lovebirds on tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago Justice, Time After Time, Spring Baking Championship, Guy’s Grocery Games, and American Crime.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/19/17

SO MUCH happened on the previous episode of NCIS: LA. Way too much to talk about here. So check out my stream-of-consciousness thoughts that are in no particular order: 1) Hetty is the one who set up the team members to be arrested, in order to keep them locked up and safe from the true bad guys (and in Sam’s case, at least, he wasn’t REALLY locked up, as the agent in charge did it as a favor to Hetty). 2) It turned out to be a good thing, since Kensi, who wasn’t arrested and DIDN’T follow Hetty’s instructions to stay there at Ops and be safe, was kidnapped by the bad guys! 3) The CIA is indeed behind the whole mole thing – Sabatino and Sharov, the CIA operative the team rescued from the Russian prison, included. 4) Sullivan (Kensi’s Marine friend from rehab) is actually CIA, and he has a personal grudge against the team and Kensi in particular, as she accidentally shot his leg off in Afghanistan when she thought he was Taliban. 5) Ferris is the one who kidnapped Kensi, and he’s looking for payback. An eye for an eye…or more specifically, a leg for a leg! 6) Hetty blew up the building she was in, which killed Sharov and nearly killed Carl Brown and Sabatino, but Carl Brown got a shot off and hit LAPD Detective Whiting, the woman gunning for Deeks who was actually helping the team look for Hetty and Kensi at the end of the episode. Brown was then promptly killed as the team returned fire. (Good riddance!)

So a lot of questions going into tonight’s episode! 1) Obviously they won’t cut off Kensi’s leg, right? 2) Did Sabatino survive? He was alive when they checked him at the blast site, but… 3) What about Granger? The last we heard, he was alive after being stabbed in prison. Miguel Ferrer passed away exactly a month ago, on January 29, so if they originally had Granger surviving the stabbing, did they have to refilm some of this episode so the character doesn’t survive, or does he survive, only to be written out some other way? Either way, it’s a sad thing! 4) Given the episode description for tonight and the fact that Elizabeth Bogush is guest starring as Joelle Taylor, does that mean Callen’s ex-girlfriend is actually a bad guy?! Gah!

On tonight’s episode, “Payback,” emotions run high for the team as one agent is held in an unknown location and tortured by the mole, while another discovers he was betrayed by someone he least expected.

See how the team finds Kensi and who betrayed whom tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, The Paley Center Salutes NBC’s 90th Birthday, Worst Cooks in America, Cake Wars, & To Tell the Truth.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/29/17

Before I write up my pick for tonight, which is NCIS: LA, I want to take a moment to mention the death of Miguel Ferrer, who played Assistant Director Owen Granger. He passed away last week, I believe due to cancer. He will certainly be missed, both the man and the character. Besides this show, he has starred and guest starred on many shows and movies. I’ll always remember him fondly for both this and Crossing Jordan, where he played Dr. Garrett Macy.

Gah! NCIS: LA is killing me with the break between the episodes of this mole arc! On the previous episode two weeks ago, it seemed like the mole stepped up his or her game and sicced all available alphabet agencies on the members of the NCIS team. A dead body and drugs were found in Sam’s car by DEA. ATF found explosives in Callen’s house. Deeks was once again being held by his own LAPD and Internal Affairs. And Granger was found hovering over Heather Wilson’s severely beaten body and was arrested. Since Hetty was dealing with Under Secretary of Defense Duggan, that left Kensi on her own, and she’s not even back to work yet! Of course, everyone protested their innocence, claiming the mole was setting them all up. Some of them seemed to be making some headway, but then things really went sour. Just as Hetty had convinced Duggan that helping her find and take down the mole would be better for his career than taking her down, especially since she was innocent, he was shot and killed by an unknown sniper when he went out to stall the FBI SWAT team so Hetty and Kensi (who’d kidnapped Heather Wilson from the hospital in order to get info from her) could escape. Fortunately, before they left via the hatch in the floor, Heather mentioned the CIA. Another horrible thing for the team? Granger was stabbed in jail!

So what does all this mean for the team?? Will Granger survive? If he does, I’m not sure how it’ll work, given his portrayer’s death. I can’t wait to find out, but be prepared… After tonight’s episode, the next (and final episode in the three-ep mole arc) won’t air until February 19th!

On tonight’s episode, “Under Siege,” Hetty goes rogue, leaving the NCIS team completely in the dark, and the mole kidnaps one of the agents.

Find out who gets kidnapped tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, To Tell the Truth, & Worst Cooks in America.
