Oh snap! Last week’s Chicago PD might have been the most perfectly titled episode to date: “Breaking Point.” The case itself was okay – a prominent alderman was killed, and of course the team solved the case. But the bigger story in my opinion was when Woods came after Olinsky. Apparently a hair of Olinsky’s was found on the dead body of Voight’s son’s killer, and a witness saw a woman in the area as well. Woods, of course, is trying to get to Voight through Olinsky, and it seems like Olinsky is going to hold steady…but when he went to Voight with the news about the witness being credible and said they should talk to Erin to get their stories straight, he may have run into Voight’s “breaking point” in terms of his loyalty to Olinsky: Erin. He said no, they didn’t want to do that yet, or something to that effect. And right then is when Olinsky realized that if it came down to Erin or him for Voight’s loyalty, he would not come out on top. Voight better do something quick if he wants to keep Woods from hearing the whole story from Olinsky!

I’m so excited about tonight’s episode. We get to learn more about Upton’s past, AND Bosch…I mean Titus Weller is guest starring! I love him, and it makes the time until the new season of Bosch starts next month!

On tonight’s episode, “Ghosts,” Upton brings back an old undercover identity to help take down a meth ring spearheaded by a former criminal contact. And with pressure from Woods mounting, Voight calls in a favor for Olinsky.

Find out what favor Voight calls in tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

Last week’s Chicago PD was tough on Burgess especially. A vigilante was going around killing rapists, and that brought up all of Burgess’s feelings about her sister’s attack. Even though they got her attackers, Burgess knew they wouldn’t be in prison nearly long enough for what they’d done. That meant she was pretty conflicted inside about tracking down the killer and putting them away. The killer turned out to be the female leader of a gang, and they caught her, but not before she killed another bad guy right under their noses (literally with a wire on trying to catch the guy, she shot and killed him). Burgess later admitted to Voight that she’d seen the gang lady get the gun, but of course Voight didn’t get angry. He understood more than anyone about wanting revenge.

Tonight is part one of a two-episode crossover with tomorrow’s Chicago Fire. This one should be a little different because instead of just having one cast member getting a scene or two in the other show or coming into it in the last five minutes, this will feature multiple characters throughout both episodes. It sounds so exciting and the previews have looked great, so I can’t wait to see how it goes!

On tonight’s episode, “Profiles,” Intelligence investigates a string of bombings targeting members of the media. Racing against a ticking clock, the team enlists Firehouse 51 to help examine the devices and prevent the next attack.

See how/why Intelligence and Firehouse 51 get involved tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, 9-1-1, Guy’s Grocery Games, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Property Brothers, SEAL Team, American Housewife, & Criminal Minds.

I was a big fan of the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, which last aired in 2007 (not counting the reunion special in 2013). In that show, Carson Kressley (fashion), Jai Rodriguez (culture), Kyan Douglas (grooming), Ted Allen (food & wine), & Thom Felicia (design) teamed up to take straight men and turn them into…well, just better groomed & dressed straight men in better living conditions. Men who lived in messy houses and ate ramen or mac n cheese every night, had scraggly hair or unkempt beard, who wanted to clean up some for a special woman in their life (or to FIND a special woman) or their families, etc. Jai has been in some movies (& maybe TV?), Carson is everywhere it seems, I see Kyan all the time giving makeovers on the Rachael Ray Show, and Ted Allen is all over Food Network. The only one I haven’t seen anything of is Thom. But regardless, the show was a breakout hit and definitely launched a few careers.

Now it’s back as Queer Eye season six, taking place in and around Atlanta, Georgia, instead of New York. The show will touch on everything from LGBTQ rights to making farm-to-table foods and more. With this new season comes a new Fab Five: Tan France (fashion), Karamo Brown (culture), Jonathan Van Ness (grooming), Antoni Porowski (food & wine), & Bobby Berk (design). I don’t know anything about these guys, but I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be as entertaining as the original five!

Early this morning, Netflix dropped the entire sixth season, which means you can go now and binge-watch to your heart’s content.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Librarians, 9-1-1, Guy’s Grocery Games, Law & Order: SVU, Property Brothers, The Amazing Race, Chicago PD, Corporate, & Match Game.

Tonight, FX kicks off the second installment of its award-winning American Crime Story series, American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace. This time, the limited series is based on Maureen Orth’s book “Vulgar Favors” and follows the events of the brutal 1997 murder of international fashion icon Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramirez, Bright, Carlos) in front of his Miami Beach mansion, at the hands of deranged psychopath Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss, Glee). The series takes a look at the manhunt for Cunanan – which actually started long before he claimed his fifth victim – and the cultural biases that allowed his killing spree to go on for so long. The series also stars Penélope Cruz as Gianni’s sister Donatella and Ricky Martin as Gianni’s longtime boyfriend Antonio D’Amico, as well Judith Light (Transparent), Mike Farrell (M*A*S*H), Dascha Polanco, Max Greenfield (New Girl), Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Cody Fern, and Jon Jon Briones.

While I was extremely familiar with the details of the O.J. Simpson case portrayed in the show’s first season, I don’t really know anything about the Versace murder, so I look forward to some unexpected twists and turns this season. Tonight’s premiere is really well done, opening with operatic-like recreation of the murder before jumping back to 1990, where we see Cunanan first meet Gianni, followed by the first glimpse into investigation of the murder. I expect that over the course of the season, we will learn more about what led Cunanan to go on his killing spree, while also seeing how he was ultimately apprehended. I was extremely impressed by Darren Criss’s portrayal of this psychopath. Cunanan is a poor con-man who is constantly making up stories about himself, his family, and his wealth. While he comes off as a pompous ass at times, he somehow still manages to win people over and weasels his way into exclusive invite-only situations. There is one moment in tonight’s premiere where I was really blown away by Darren Criss’s performance – he manages to convey Cunanan’s complete lack of emotion, empathy, and any guilt for what he has done, with one simple gesture. I am really looking forward to seeing more of Criss’s performance, learning more about Cunanan’s motives, and seeing how the manhunt plays out.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Man Who Would Be Vogue,” the eyes of the world turn to Miami Beach, Fla., following the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace.

Follow the investigation into Versace’s murder starting tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Modern Family, American Housewife, Match Game, The Amazing Race, The Blacklist, The X-Files, 9-1-1, Riverdale, Corporate, The Magicians, Happy!, and The Librarians.

Tonight, the third season of The Magicians kicks off on Syfy. As the second season came to a close, Penny learned that he had “cancer plus” and was dying and only had three weeks to live. Meanwhile, in Fillory, Eliot and Margo started to execute their plan to take back their kingdom. However, in exchange for helping her re-enter Fillory, the Queen of Fairies took Margo’s right eye. Eliot and Margo threw a party to lure brother gods Umber and Ember into their trap. After Ember killed his own brother, Quentin, with Julia’s help, used a sword to kill Ember. They believed they had saved magic, but when Alice heard the news, she was concerned that Ember and Umber’s parents, the creators of the universe, would send something to avenge the death of their children. Sure enough, the literal plumber of the gods cut off the supply of magic to Brakebills, the library, and Fillory.

In Fillory, the fairies used this lack of magic as their opportunity to forcibly seize and occupy the castle. At Brakebills, Dean Fogg resorted to teaching his students magical theory, in hopes that magic might still return. Meanwhile, Julia sneaked onto campus and showed Quentin that she could still create a small spark, which gave him hope. Finally, Joseph the monk appeared to Alice, warning her that The Lamprey was coming after her.

Will the group find a way to restore magic to Brakebills, Fillory, and the rest of the world? Can Julia’s spark of magical ability be harnessed into more? How long can Penny survive by staying in the library, immune from the passage of time? And will magic return in time to find a cure for his cancer? What is after Alice, what does it want, and can it be stopped? And how are Eliot and Margo going to take back Fillory from the Queen of Faries? I’ve already checked out tonight’s wonderful season premiere. I had forgotten how much I had missed this show’s great mix of humor, sarcasm, action, and drama. There is an especially fun scene between Eliot and Margo that made the TV fan in me so giddy. The premiere sets up several interesting quests for the characters that are sure to intersect over the next few weeks. It looks like we are in store for another thoroughly entertaining and magical season!

This past summer I got the opportunity to talk with some of the cast/creators of the series at San Diego Comic-Con. You can check out my press room Q&A videos at NoReruns.net. http://www.noreruns.net/2017/08/17/magicians-press-room-san-diego-comic-con-2017/

On tonight’s premiere, “The Tales of the Seven Keys,” Quentin tries to find someone who can bring magic back; Julia explores her small, but significant, gift; Eliot and Margo struggle under the hostile fairy occupation; Kady searches for a way to heal Penny.

See how the season starts tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Goldbergs, Modern Family, American Housewife, Match Game, The Amazing Race, The Blacklist, The X-Files, 9-1-1, Happy!, and The Librarians.
