“In the not-too-distant future, next Sunday A.D., there was a guy named Joel, not too different than you or me…”

Mystery Science Theater 3000 aired from 1988 to 1999, immediately becoming a cult hit. My husband was a HUGE fan. Joel Robinson (played by show creator Joel Hodgson) was shot into space and forced to watch bad movies while a mad scientist and his crony monitored his mind. Joel built some lovable robot sidekicks to help him keep his sanity. What made it seriously unique was just the way the characters watched the movies and the commentary we got to watch/listen to. Really funny stuff.

In 2015, fans of the series donated to a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign to reboot the show for a brand new, 14-episode season. Original creator Joel Hodgson will be joined by comedian Jonah Ray (also known as Jonah Heston) as the new host and Felicia Day (Geek & Sundry) as “Kinga Forrester.”

If you’ve never seen the show before, Netflix has Season One up if you’re interested!

The complete new season comes out on Netflix tonight at 3:01AM/2:01AMc.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, MasterChef: Junior, Trial & Error, The Great Indoors, Chicago Med, The Amazing Race, Beat Bobby Flay, & Impractical Jokers.

Tonight, The Amazing Race returns to CBS as 22 new contestants start their adventure around the globe in hopes of taking home the $1M prize. However, for this 29th season, there is a big twist: all eleven teams will be comprised of complete strangers! This race is already difficult enough when you can plan ahead for your partner’s strengths and weaknesses, but meeting your teammate on the starting mat adds even more stress to the game! A while back there was a season where half the teams were “blind dates,” and it actually worked out surprisingly well for the teams that just met. It will be interesting to see if that’s the case again. Will the lack of a history to bicker about actually help these newly formed teams? At least there isn’t necessarily a forced pretense of a love connection between the teammates this time around.

On tonight’s premiere, “We’re Coming for You, Phil!” twenty-two strangers meet at the starting line in Los Angeles and then pair up to form eleven teams who then fly to the first destination: Panama City.

Meet the new teams tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’m so excited for tonight’s return of The Good Place on NBC. This was my favorite new show of the fall, and tonight it returns to kick off its final 3 weeks of the season. When we last left off, the folks from the Bad Place had arrived to collect fake Eleanor, but she pleaded with Michael to let her stay and continue to prove she could change and justify her place there. So he decided to bring the matter before the great and powerful Shawn. Meanwhile, Chidi and the real Eleanor really hit it off – it was easy to see why they were originally paired together as soulmates. And in the episode’s cliffhanger, Tahani discovered the truth about Jianyu and his “meditation den.”

Will fake Eleanor be kicked out of her home now that real Eleanor has arrived? Which Eleanor will Chidi choose? (Not to wish ill will on real Eleanor, but I really liked the growing relationship between Chidi and fake Eleanor, so I hope she’s out of the picture soon.) What will Tahani do with the news about Jianyu, and will we learn about how he ended up in the Good Place? And who is this Shawn who will decide fake Eleanor’s fate?

On tonight’s episode, “Chidi’s Choice,” Eleanor makes a surprising personal discovery. Meanwhile, Michael tasks an indecisive Chidi with coming to an important decision, and Jianyu makes a big announcement.

See the return of the double Eleanors tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Great American Baking Show, The Big Bang Theory, The Great Indoors, Life in Pieces, Superstore, The Blacklist, and Top Chef.

On the last new episode of The Big Bang Theory, we watched our favorite couple get divorced. Or rather, that’s what it seemed like, when Sheldon, Amy, Leonard, and Penny decided to make the move permanent by splitting up all the things from Sheldon & Leonard’s apartment. Sheldon being Sheldon, of course, assumed he’d get everything he wanted, as if he knew what mattered to Leonard and what didn’t. It became so personal that Leonard ended up claiming the apartment’s flag and ended up wearing it completely naked to do his laundry, nearly giving Sheldon a heart attack. Of course, Sheldon ended up renting his room in the apartment to some stranger (Christopher Lloyd!), much to Leonard and Penny’s dismay. My favorite part had to be Leonard shipping off his underpants from underneath the flag.

And of course, we’re down to the wire on Bernadette’s pregnancy. Stuart and Raj were at each other’s throats trying to be the most helpful to her and Howard in the final few weeks. And at the end of the episode, Bernie went into labor. Yay! Oh, and in case you didn’t see… TV Line posted a thing from the powers that be for the show, who explained about Bernadette’s pregnancy. She’s actually been pregnant for like 11 months in the show’s timeline, so they had to speed it up or fans would begin to notice. LOL

I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and it’s really fun. It takes place on Amy’s birthday (which means the annual birthday sexy times for her and Sheldon! LOL) – and, in case the episode title doesn’t give it away – the baby’s birthday as well. And for those who are hoping not to “be” inside the delivery room during the birth, rest easy. We get the befores and afters, not durings. There’s a great, great moment about Howard’s mom, too, which was very poignant, since the actress passed away just over two years ago. All in all, this is one of my favorite episodes this season.

On tonight’s episode, “The Birthday Synchronicity,” Howard and Bernadette welcome their new baby, and Sheldon and Amy celebrate Amy’s birthday. (I couldn’t resist throwing up a second picture for it. Please do click on it to see the full version. It’s totally worth it. LMAO)

To see how the joint birthday goes, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Great Indoors, Chopped, The Great American Baking Show, Beat Bobby Flay, & Top Chef.

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.
