Last week something very exciting happened for loyal fans of CBS’s 2 Broke Girls: Candy Andy and Bobby came face-to-face! Whew. That was a lot of hotness in one screen! It was the press junket for Caroline’s movie, and Max and Caroline were invited, along with Andy, who was also featured in the movie. The movie itself got a bit of a change-up from Caroline’s real life. She did indeed lose her money, then meet Max. But she and Candy Andy fell in love instead of breaking up like in real life. The actress playing Caroline was Australian. The Han character was played by a 12-year-old girl. The Oleg character was…well, very Oleg-like. And instead of having a Sophie AND an Earl, they combined them to make it a full-figured black woman playing a Polish woman. Bizarre! LOL A now-divorced Andy told Caroline he missed her and wanted to get back together, but Bobby, who’d told Caroline earlier in the episode that he wasn’t jealous, burst in and hit Andy – well, hit the actor playing Andy – who was kissing Caroline – well, the actress playing Caroline. Turns out he really was jealous. Of course, both Caroline and Bobby were wistful when Andy later on mentioned that he was now rich after an accident at Six Flags. He had a helicopter and everything. And Max finally got to meet the actress who was playing her – a young woman who went very method when preparing for the roll. Maybe a little too method, since she asked Max, “How are you still alive??”

Tonight is the season finale. It hasn’t been renewed yet, and TV Line has it listed as “Could go either way.” So I’m not sure what’s going to happen. Will we get a satisfying conclusion in case this is the end of the series? Caroline and Bobby are happy. Oleg and Sophie are married with a baby. But Max needs to find love… I want her to get back together with Randy! Since he’s listed as being back for the finale, maybe that’ll happen? Guess we’ll have to watch to find out!

On tonight’s episode, “And 2 Broke Girls: The Movie,” as the big premiere of the film about Caroline’s life arrives, the girls and the diner gang prepare for their night on the red carpet. Also, Caroline and Max contemplate their future at the diner and the states of their love lives. Celebrity fashion stylist Brad Goreski guest stars as himself, who helps the girls choose dresses for the big premiere. Ed Quinn also guest stars as Randy.

See how the season (series?) ends tonight on CBS at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Kevin Can Wait, Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, APB, Help My Yelp, Scorpion, & Taken.

Tonight, Better Call Saul kicks off its third season on AMC. When we last left off, Jimmy had purposely altered his brother’s legal documents in order to steal Mesa Verde as a client. Chuck blamed his electromagnetic hypersensitivity for his absentmindedness; however, he suspected that Jimmy had something to do with the error. Chuck quit his job at the firm, had a panic attack that sent him to the hospital, and was back to wearing his tin foil hat around his darkened house. Jimmy felt bad and confessed to his brother what he had done, but he was unaware that Chuck had arranged the situation and had recorded the conversation. Meanwhile, Mike’s plan to execute Hector Salamanca was interrupted by a blaring car horn, and when he went to stop the noise, he found the word “Don’t” written on his vehicle.

Who left the note for Mike, and why didn’t the author want Hector killed? The general theory is that it was Gus Fring – are we going to see how those two first partnered up? How does Chuck plan to use this recording against his brother? Now that he knows that there was nothing physically wrong with him, will he abandon his paranoid ways and become the top lawyer he once was? And how will the existence of this tape affect Kim and Saul’s relationship, which is ultimately doomed, given where Breaking Bad picks up? I have been thoroughly enjoying this prequel series, and I’m looking forward to seeing where things go this season and what connections to the original series will pop up.

On tonight’s premiere, “Mabel,” Jimmy and Chuck’s relationship deteriorates; Kim feels the pressure of running her own firm; and Mike investigates the note left on his car.

If you missed any of the second season, AMC will be running a marathon of the entire second season starting at 11:30AM ET today. Otherwise, catch the start of the new season tonight on AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, Bates Motel, Young & Hungry, Baby Daddy, and Angie Tribeca.

Scorpion is a show I watch every week with my 11-year-old daughter. She loves it because I feel like she identifies with the characters. She’s in a program for kids who are advanced for their age, but she definitely struggles with the social aspect of life. When she watches this show, she tells me things like “I get that” and “wow, it’s nice to see people I understand on television.” It may not seem like a big deal to some people, but to her it’s a huge deal. All of that positive connection stuff aside, this show never fails to amuse and still emotionally touch us.

Last episode, the team traveled to the rainforest to find a monkey that may carry the cure to a deadly disease that’s spreading through the area. It turned out that the cure was in the fruit that the monkey ate, which was on a tree that now needed to be protected from the illegal loggers. I was glad it all worked out, but what was really great about the episode was watching Walter at the end. He showed Cabe some true empathy, which made Paige realize that she actually hurt him when she was with Tim. That may be just the turning point we need for her to admit that she is in fact in love with him.

On tonight’s episode, “Broken Wind,” while on a mission to repair a turbine at a wind farm, Team Scorpion must race to save Paige and Happy before the cable holding the gondola they are in snaps and sends them plummeting to the ground.

To see if the team can save them before it’s too late, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching 24: Legacy, Man With a Plan, The Voice, Kevin Can Wait, APB, and Taken.

I loved the previous new episode of Scorpion. When an online friend of Happy’s disappeared in the middle of a conversation and never returned, Happy hacked in and found where the address the IP was coming from. She went to the nearby town and found a house surrounded by police and fire trucks. Turned out the girl had to live in a “bubble” because she was so immune compromised that she couldn’t be exposed to anything. Unfortunately, a bad storm knocked a tree and power lines into their roof, which was threatening her power supply for the oxygen and air purifier, and debris was about to crash through the hole in the roof and puncture the “bubble” (enclosure made of plastic sheeting-type stuff) she lived in. Of course, Scorpion made the trip and figured out a way to save her, but it was crazy – involved her first in a fireman’s Hazmat suit, then in a vat of fresh honey when she had an allergic reaction in the suit, finally coming out into an industrial freezer right after they burned off all the germs using cans of Sterno. Once again, you had to go with suspension of disbelief, but that’s a norm for this show. LOL

On other notes… Cabe broke up with Allie after she posted a damning video of Sly on the internet, of him wiping his palm on his sweater after shaking a military veteran’s hand. He was doing it with everyone, not singling out the veteran, but when Allie’s boss told her to do that, she did it. Cabe understood that it was her job and she needed her job, but he couldn’t be with someone who attacked one of his “family.” Sylvester ended up losing the election, but he saved the comic book store, as they found out from one of the veterans that the building had been around long enough to qualify as historic and therefore couldn’t be torn down. And finally (FINALLY!), Paige and what’s-his-face (LMAO) broke up when…okay, okay…Tim extended his time overseas because it wasn’t working out for them long distance. Yay!

On tonight’s episode, “Monkey See, Monkey Poo,” to stop a dangerous virus from spreading, Team Scorpion must locate a rare endangered monkey in the Amazon that has the antibody for the cure. Also, Toby and Happy see a counselor to prepare for matrimony. Guest star Penn Jillette returns.

See if the team can find the monkey in time tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 24: Legacy, Kevin Can Wait, Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, APB, & 2 Broke Girls.

Tonight, Bates Motel returns for the start of its fifth and final season on A&E. As the fourth season came to a close, Norman had gone full-on Psycho, blocking up the furnace vents in order to try to kill himself and his mother via carbon monoxide. Romero happened to stop by the house shortly afterwards and tried to save them, but it was too late for Norma. Norman had left a suicide note from Norma, but Romero figured out what must have really happened. He had a gun ready and was planning to kill Norman but was arrested for perjury, which delayed those plans. After the funeral, Norman dug up his mother’s body and brought it back home, but he still seemed confused and hadn’t really accepted that Norma is actually dead.

As we head into the final 10 episodes of the series, I’m curious to see what stories the writers have left to tell. We’re almost to the point in Norman’s journey that took place in the original Psycho film. Are we building to that moment? Will they re-create the events of the film in the series? Will Dylan learn about his mother’s death, and if so, how will he react and will he return home? Will Romero get his revenge on Norman, or will he ultimately become one of his latest victims? I’m looking forward to seeing how this creepy final chapter plays out.

On tonight’s premiere, “Dark Paradise,” a troubling discovery surfaces and Dylan and Emma get a surprise guest.

Check out the beginning of the end tonight on A&E at 10/9c.

And in case you need a refresher going into the final season, A&E will be airing a 30-minute “Quickie Catchup” before tonight’s premiere, at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Quantico, Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, Timeless, APB, Jane the Virgin, Humans, and Beyond.
