I’m loving seeing the Scorpion team stranded on the deserted island after their plane crash landed while on the way to a job-slash-honeymoon for Happy & Toby. Unfortunately, the pilot was injured – his arm was trapped, which led to compression syndrome. If they simply pried his arm loose from the wreckage, the poison that had built up would be free to travel through his bloodstream and would kill him. So Toby “MacGyvered” his way to building basically a filter using things from the plane and the island, and they were able to save the pilot’s life and his arm. The team tried to get the attention of a passing ship, but even with the flare they sent off, the ship didn’t see them or turn around. And since they figured out the EMP sent the plane off course without the pilot realizing, they know they’re VERY far from where they should have been and not in a highly trafficked area, and help may not be coming anytime soon, if at all.

Sylvester is having the hardest time with their situation. He was actually very un-Sly-like last week, much less scared and anxious, since he was sure they were going to die and therefore wasn’t afraid of it since he felt it was a foregone conclusion. And one of the funniest parts of the episode was Walter trying to be all lovey-dovey with Paige. He kept calling her different pet names and basically just being too sugary sweet. At first it kind of annoyed Paige, but she realized that it was just the only way he knew to react to his feelings, since they’re new to him. It was all very sweet and funny.

Tonight is the season finale. The team’s been stranded for three weeks. I can’t wait to see how it’s affecting everyone, especially Sylvester. The previews for him look awesomely funny!

On tonight’s episode, “Scorp Family Robinson,” three weeks after they crash land on a deserted island, tensions run high for Team Scorpion when they must battle to overcome their relationship obstacles in order to be rescued.

Find out how the team overcomes these obstacles tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Kids BBQ Championship & Man With a Plan.

I’ve really enjoyed the first season of Superior Donuts. Judd Hirsch is always great, and he has a lot of chemistry with Jermaine Fowler, who plays Franco. The rest of the cast is a lot of fun too. The always racist Fawz might be my favorite character, though. He’s so wrong it’s hysterical. Last week, Franco decided he should show his art. He tried to get into a real gallery, but the gallery owner said no way, so the gang rallied and turned the donut shop into a gallery to show just Franco’s art. The gallery owner even came and gave Franco some advice, telling him he had a long way to go but it would be worth it for him to continue. Unfortunately, Arthur took it upon himself to invite Franco’s father, who always said pursuing his art wasn’t worth the time. In the end, his father still isn’t supportive of his art, but Franco stood up to him and said that was fine. He wouldn’t continue his art without his father’s support since he had the support of Arthur and all his friends there at the donut shop.

Like I said, I really loved the entire season and all the characters. I’m sad tonight is the season finale, but thank goodness it’s been renewed for another season already, so I don’t have to worry about whether or not it’s coming back!

On tonight’s episode, “Secrets and Spies,” when Maya momentarily leaves her open laptop unattended, the gang discovers she’s been studying them all year for her dissertation. Also, Franco and Randy become determined to learn the truth about where a tight-lipped Arthur really spends each Sunday.

Find out where Arthur’s been going on Sundays tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Kevin Can Wait, Kids BBQ Championship, Man With a Plan, The Great Indoors, Help My Yelp, & Scorpion.

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.
