legendsoftomorrow24smallI’m really enjoying DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. It’s just a fun action superhero show that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Last week, the gang was still in 1975, where they infiltrated a nuclear-missile auction. However, Vandal Savage figured out who they were and offered the various villains in attendance a discount if they killed the Legends. A big battle broke out, and in the aftermath, part of the Atom’s suit was left behind. The group had to get this piece of future tech back ASAP in order to stop Savage from using the technology to create a massive weapon. While Stein, Sara, and Jax went looking for young Stein to borrow a device they could use to locate the missing piece of the suit, Heat Wave, Captain Cold, and Ray went to find an ancient dagger that had the power to kill Savage. By the end of the episode, the gang had another face-off with Savage, where Carter stabbed the villain with the dagger but unfortunately discovered that it only had the power to kill him if Kendra was the one who wielded it. Savage turned the dagger back on Carter, killing him, and then also wounded Kendra, but she and the rest of the group were able to get away to fight another day.

Where/when will the group head next, and what will their next plan to take down Savage involve? Will they jump ahead 20 years to pick up the next incarnation of Hawkman to join them once again, or is he really gone for good? There are so many fun combinations of these characters, and I look forward to seeing who they pair up for next week’s adventures.

On tonight’s episode, “Blood Ties,” Rip tries to weaken Vandal Savage by going after his financial assets. Rip and Sara infiltrate Savage’s bank but are discovered by his men. Meanwhile, Snart and Rory talk Jax into taking the jump ship back to Central City so they can steal a valuable emerald; and Professor Stein guides Ray on a dangerous mission.

Find out if Rip and Sara can escape Savage’s men tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Life in Pieces, Angel from Hell, Madoff, You, Me and the Apocalypse, The Blacklist, The 100, Baskets, Top Chef, Recipe for Deception, Workaholics, and Idiotsitter.

tbbt1217smallLast week on The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon had an earworm stuck in his head and annoyed Penny and Leonard as he constantly tried to figure out what song it was. Meanwhile, Raj and Howard discovered their band already had a fan after just one performance. They stalked and tracked him down but quickly changed their minds about meeting him after witnessing him picking his nose at the coffee shop. And finally, Amy decided to move on, begrudgingly calling Dave – Sheldon’s number one superfan – for a second date, this time dinner at her home (with the possibility of more). Sheldon unknowingly interrupted the date, professing his love and kissing Amy. However, Amy’s date didn’t seem to mind. He was thrilled to finally meet Sheldon and lived the moment vicariously through her.

I was really happy to see Sheldon and Amy get back together last week. They make a really great couple. (Though I have really enjoyed guest star Stephen Merchant, and I hope they find a way to bring Dave back in a future episode.) If the gossip is true, tonight’s episode should be a big one for Amy and Sheldon, with the couple taking a gigantic leap forward. So I’m anxious to see how their relationship progresses from here.

On tonight’s episode, “The Opening Night Excitation,” Prof. Proton visits Sheldon in a dream and gives him Obi-Wan Kenobi-like advice about whether to go see the new Star Wars film or spend the time with newly reunited girlfriend Amy on her birthday. Meanwhile, Leonard, Howard, and Raj try to decide who will get their extra ticket to the movie premiere.

To see what step Shamy takes and who goes to the movie with the guys, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Life in Pieces.

bones1210smallIt’s been several weeks since the last episode of Bones. A political journalist was killed after publishing an article exposing corruption in the NSA. After lots of twists and turns, it was finally revealed that the journalist’s source was actually her killer. It was a complicated case, and while it was good, the best part of the episode was the personal stuff, from Booth and Brennan discussing what food they should have for Thanksgiving dinner, then deciding to invite their friends from the Jeffersonian and FBI, and finally having dinner all together – including Booth’s surprise…a very grown-up-looking Parker!

There are two episodes tonight, including the fall finale, which makes me very sad! I have to admit that I caved and watched both on the FOX press site, and I will say they are two very, very good episodes. The first is fun, funny, and a nice episode to whet your appetite before the second, which is much, MUCH darker, scary, intense, and one of my favorite Bones episodes to date. Every single person did an amazing job. I plan to rewatch both episodes at least once.

On tonight’s first episode, “The Cowboy in the Contest,” To solve a murder, Brennan and Booth go undercover at an Old West-style shooting competition, while Angela and Hodgins discuss the future of their family and Cam gets close with photographer Sebastian Kohl (guest star Gil Darnell). Then on the second episode, “The Doom in the Boom,” the team investigates the murder of a police officer that sends shockwaves through both the Jeffersonian and FBI teams. Behavioral analyst Leslie Green (guest star Sara Rue) is assigned to work with Booth on the investigation and lends her professional assessments on who the cop killer could be, while Cam must make some decisions in her personal life and the entire team re-evaluates what is truly important to them.

See all the fun and excitement tonight on FOX starting at 8/7c.

tbbt1119smallOn last week’s episode of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon was finally ready to re-enter the dating world and posted an elaborate scavenger hunt on Craigslist to find his new Amy. The clues would test any potential mate’s intelligence and the fact that she had nothing better to do on a Saturday night. Raj and Howard counted down the seconds to the deadline, but it seemed that no one had solved the clues. A couple minutes later, there was a knock on the door, and Sheldon answered. The young woman who had solved his riddle seemed absolutely perfect for him, and they had great chemistry. However, Sheldon closed the door on her, saying that she had not completed the task in time. And that was it. Meanwhile, Leonard, Penny, and Bernadette had a stakeout to get a glimpse of Amy’s dinner date. Her date seemed like a great guy. However, once he discovered that Amy knew the famous Doctor Cooper and his colleagues, that’s all he wanted to talk about.

Amy and Sheldon haven’t really spoken much since the breakup, and I’m interested to see how Amy reacts when she learns that Sheldon had planned to propose. I think it’s only a matter of time before Amy and Sheldon get back together, and while I’d really like that to happen, I think it would be a lot of fun to see more of Sheldon trying to date other people.

On tonight’s episode, “The Platonic Permutation,” now just friends, Sheldon and Amy spend Thanksgiving at the aquarium; a reluctant Wolowitz volunteers at a soup kitchen with Bernadette, Raj, and Emily; and Penny realizes that Leonard knows a bit more about her than he’s let on. Elon Musk guest stars.

To see what Leonard knows about Penny, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Life in Pieces, Grey’s Anatomy, Heroes Reborn, The Blacklist, Bones, Sleepy Hollow, Haven, Spotless, and Nathan for You.

scorpion1026smallLast week on Scorpion, Sylvester darn near made me cry. It was the case of his life – infiltrating the “Super Fun Guy” movie and even having to dress in costume to do it – but because Megan (Walter’s sister and the woman Sly is in love with) was getting ready to have a procedure done, and a dangerous one at that, Sylvester opted to stay home. Megan asked him not to tell Walter, so he didn’t. He obviously wanted to be with the team, but Megan was more important, especially since he was able to help them from there at home. The team had to stop some bad guys from selling a nuclear missile to even more bad guys. There were a lot of fun moments: Happy getting stuck in the silo, Toby going in after her and freeing her…by making her lose her pants, Walter setting off the weapon into the mine tunnel way underground… All of it was just a lot of fun, even if some of it is incredibly far-fetched.

That’s what I love about this show. It forces me to let go of real-life and just enjoy. Tonight’s a super-sized 90-minute episode following the premiere of Supergirl, so it should be a lot of fun. I can’t wait to see what kind of hijinks the team will be up to this week.

On tonight’s episode, “Tech, Drugs, and Rock ‘n Roll,” Walter’s attempt to “normalize” goes horribly wrong when a nefarious virus is uploaded to his computer, turning Team Scorpion’s new “smart” building project into a burning death trap with people locked inside. Andy Buckley, Doug Savant, & more guest star.

See what goes wrong tonight on CBS at 9:31/8:31c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Supergirl, Halloween Baking Championship, Beat Bobby Flay, & Blindspot.
