superstore1110smallLast week on Superstore, it was election day, and Cloud 9 served as a polling station. Dina and Glenn accidentally destroyed a bunch of the ballots and then bickered a lot while trying to figure out a way to cover it up. Meanwhile, Amy and Jonah were having fun creating an alternative election pamphlet, but this came to an abrupt end when Jonah’s new girlfriend Namoi showed up – Amy seemed a bit jealous when she learned Jonah had a girlfriend. And Mateo realized he was an illegal alien and desperately tried to get a hold of an “I Voted” sticker in order to stop people from questioning him as to why he hadn’t voted yet.

Tonight we get a double dose of episodes for the fall finale. This show is a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to see how Cloud 9 deals with Black Friday! While I really like Amy and Jonah together, it seems odd that the writers are still pursuing this will-they-wont-they storyline. They sort of wrote themselves into a corner by making her married with a child – who wants to root for a homewrecker in a comedy?!

On tonight’s first episode, “Seasonal Help,” unruly seasonal employees are hired to help over the holidays. Among them is Amy’s husband, a development that exposes her in unexpected ways. Also, the temps frustrate Jonah and Garrett, and Glenn seeks the perfect person to play the store’s Santa.

Then, in “Black Friday,” the staffers all fall ill with food poisoning on the busiest shopping day of the year, yet a frantic Amy suspects her nausea is morning sickness. Also: Glenn’s demeanor changes following a pharmacy trip; and Mateo and Cheyenne embark on a side business.

Catch the double episodes tonight on NBC at 8/7c & 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, The Great Indoors, Life in Pieces, The Blacklist, Pitch, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and 60 Days In.

tbbt1017smallLast week on The Big Bang Theory, Amy’s apartment flooded, and Penny suggested she and Leonard stay in her apartment while Amy moves into Sheldon and Leonard’s apartment with Sheldon. It took some convincing – where Leonard told him he could count it as a scientific experiment – but Sheldon finally agreed, although he decided that, to be in neutral territory, he and Amy would stay in Penny’s apartment instead. After words of wisdom from their friends and a proposal from Amy that all sex stays off the table (much to Sheldon’s relief), they (temporarily) moved in together. Of course, it wasn’t that easy. Sheldon had to put up with Amy coughing up phlegm in the bathroom while brushing her teeth, and in no surprise, Sheldon was kind of a bear to live with… He snores – bad – and ended up sleep-pushing Amy off the bed. The next day, Sheldon said he’d slept like a baby, while Amy was ready to quit, but they traded barbs and burns back and forth, which actually turned them on. So silly!

And can we talk about how weird Raj is? LOL He went with Howard and Bernie to her OB-GYN appointment, which was strange enough, but then he made a comment about how perfect Bernie’s cervix is, which took it over-the-top weird. Annnnnnd he’s the only one of the three who knows the sex of the baby because his father’s a gynecologist and he saw the sex on the ultrasound. LMAO

On tonight’s episode, “The Hot Tub Contamination,” Leonard and Penny must separate a quarreling Sheldon and Amy when their cohabitation does not go as planned, and Sheldon threatens to break off their relationship when Amy refuses to adhere to the bathroom schedule. Also, Howard and Bernadette find unexpected guests at their house when they decide to stay home from a planned vacation.

Find out who the unexpected guests are tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Cake Wars, Kevin Can Wait, 2 Broke Girls, Halloween Baking Championship, Scorpion, & Conviction.

tbbt512smallTonight is the season finale of The Big Bang Theory. It’s been a season of big changes for our favorite nerds. Penny and Leonard finally tied the knot. Sheldon and Amy broke up, tried to date other people, and then got back together and ended up consummating their relationship for the first time. Howard and Raj formed a band. Stuart moved out of Howard and Bernadette’s house. Raj dated both Emily and new girl Claire, and then he and Emily broke up and he is now sort-of dating Claire. Leonard, Sheldon, and Howard invented…something (some new guidance-system thingy. LMAO I’m no scientist!) and are considering the applications and getting it patented. Amy learned that Sheldon is a secret hoarder… And finally, Howard and Bernadette found out they were pregnant! Like I said, big changes!

Last week, Leonard’s mother, Beverly, came into town and Penny volunteered to pick her up from the airport and spend some time with her in order to make a connection. Unfortunately, that didn’t go as planned. Beverly was more interested in Amy and Bernadette and their relationships with Sheldon and Howard. When Penny confronted her, Beverly expressed her displeasure about Penny and Leonard getting married without her. That was a little confusing, since she sure didn’t act like she cared when she first learned about it! But whatever… Penny offered to have a second private ceremony for Beverly now that she’s in town. Beverly agreed, so it looks like we’ll get to see a second Penny/Leonard wedding tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “The Convergence Convergence,” Chaos ensues when Leonard’s recently divorced parents, Alfred (Judd Hirsch) and Beverly (Christine Baranski), and Sheldon’s devoutly religious mother, Mary (Laurie Metcalf), come to town. Also, Wolowitz and Koothrappali think the government is out to get them when they are contacted about their guidance system.

Attend Penny and Leonard’s second wedding in the season finale tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Bones, Man vs Child: Chef Showdown, 2 Broke Girls, Beat Bobby Flay, & Impractical Jokers.

tbbt428smallI love The Big Bang Theory as much now as I ever have, and last week had me laughing for most of the episode. The gang decided to watch an episode of Game of Thrones together, but right beforehand, they started arguing and two sides were drawn. Leonard got tired of Sheldon’s bologna and stood up to him, saying he wasn’t going to the roommate meeting. Penny took Sheldon’s side for who knows what reason – she said it was because they’d made a deal… Whatever…), and then Amy took Leonard’s because she doesn’t like that Penny and Sheldon are always turning to one another. Howard, meanwhile, is irritated with Raj, who keeps spouting lines about being a ladies’ man because he’s seeing two women at once, so Howard stayed with Leonard, Amy, and her spinach dip, while Raj went with Sheldon and Penny to Penny’s old place.

The fights continued when Amy let it slip to Leonard that Penny uses her wile ways to shift the roommate agreement against Leonard when she wants something. He confronts her, and she confronts Amy about spilling the secrets. It seems to be heading toward a major argument between everyone out in the hall, when Howard yells out from the apartment, asking if there were nuts in the party sub Leonard bought. Obviously there were, as they figured out when he came stumbling into the hall, blowing up like a balloon. Nothing like an emergency to bring the friends all back together.

On tonight’s episode, “The Fermentation Bifurcation,” the gang goes to a wine bar and runs into Penny’s old boyfriend, Zack. Also, Bernadette gets stuck spending the evening with Sheldon when she can’t go wine tasting with the group, and things don’t go as planned when Koothrappali introduces his new girlfriend, Claire. Brian Thomas Smith & Alessandra Torresani guest star.

See what happens when old and new boy/girlfriends meet the gang tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Bones, Man vs Child: Chef Showdown, 2 Broke Girls, Beat Bobby Flay, Impractical Jokers, & Rush Hour.

fullerhousesmallI’m so excited because late tonight/early tomorrow morning, Netflix is putting out the entire first season of Fuller House, the continuation of the hit show that began in 1987, Full House. The original focused on Danny Tanner, a widow raising his three daughters with the help of his brother-in-law Jesse and best friend Joey. By the series end, Jesse was married to Rebecca and they had twin boys. The new series focuses on widow – oldest Tanner daughter – DJ, who moves back into the family home with her three boys after her firefighter husband dies. Middle Tanner daughter Stephanie and DJ’s best friend Kimmie move in with her, along with Kimmie’s daughter, to help DJ raise her boys. Other family members will guest star throughout the series, but the show will focus on DJ, Kimmie, Stephanie, and the kids.

Full House was a simple, feel-good, family show that I still love well into adulthood. So even though critics are already saying some not-so-nice things about it, I’m looking forward to it simply because I loved the original so much and am excited to see where all the characters are now, some twenty years later. If you go in expecting perfection, you’ll be disappointed. Hopefully you can go into it like I am and expect some silly, heartwarming, cheesy fun.

Don’t miss the complete first season premiere tonight on Netflix at 3:01AM/2:01AMc.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory (200th episode!), Top Chef, 2 Broke Girls, Beat Bobby Flay, Colony, & Recipe for Deception.
