We have reached the part of the year when our favorite shows go on hiatus for the holiday season, and tonight is the fall finale for 9-1-1. I can’t describe just how much I love this show and what an amazing job the writers have done casting it.

On the last new episode, we got to learn a lot about Hen and how she started off at the fire department. It was heartbreaking to watch how she was treated when she first started – the racism, sexism, and judgement. Her captain was verbally abusive, and yet she fought hard to be an extraordinary firefighter. Chimney was there for her, and eventually the powers that be stepped in and fired her captain. It was a beautiful episode, and I loved how it was focused on Hen only so we could learn more about her. Hopefully they do similar episodes for other characters eventually as well.

On tonight’s episode, “Merry Ex-Mas,” the holidays are naughty and nice for the first responders, who must deal with a stampede at a toy store, a mistletoe stunt gone awry, and neighbors competing in a Christmas-light showdown. Meanwhile, Bobby contemplates his future with Athena, Chimney and Buck attempt to lift Maddie’s spirits, and Eddie must decide if he wants to give his son what he really wants for Christmas: a visit with his mom.

To see how Chimney and Buck help Maddie, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, The Resident, Bull, Manifest, Holiday Baking Championship, and The Good Doctor.

Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are geniuses, and the show 9-1-1 is another prime example of what can be produced and created in the hands of this creative team. The characters are funny, yet they still manage to be deep and relatable. Buck is one of the most relatable characters right now because he’s working on getting back into the dating scene without sleeping with whatever girls throw themselves at him. The funny thing is now that he’s developed a conscience, he is more aware of when someone is using him for sex…which his reporter lady friend is definitely doing. Watching Buck realize that his old moves are being used on him was hilarious, but in the end I hope Buck can find real love again because he deserves it.

Elsewhere, Chimney and Maddie realized they are moving along into a relationship without actually labeling it. I completely support this and think they need to move forward with the relationship fully. I’m just waiting for Buck and Chimney to have to save Maddie when her ex-husband shows up, because we all know no one can escape their past on this show.

On tonight’s episode, “Hen Begins,” Hen relives her evolution into the firefighter she is today as she recalls the first times she met Chimney and Athena.

To take this stroll down memory lane, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Resident, The Voice, The Good Doctor, Magnum PI, The Neighborhood, Happy Together, Holiday Baking Championship, Arrow, and Manifest.

TVx3 Podcast – Jenny & Kyle Joined Jason to Talk TV!

Last week, I spoke with Jason (@theTVaholic) & Kyle (@kyool) on Jason’s TVx3 podcast. That’s always a lot of fun, especially when I’m feeling pretty passionate about a show or two! This time, we talked not only cancelation and renewal news, as well as our own TV recommendations (hint: mine was this season of SEAL Team!), but also about recent episodes of 9-1-1, The Big Bang Theory, FBI, & The Rookie plus the first episode of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Be sure to check out the podcast and see what the three of us thought. As always, it’s entertaining because of how awesome we are similar or differing our opinions can be, depending on the show! Find the podcast here on TV times Three.

Last week on 9-1-1, there was a lot going on with multiple people, and I am impressed at the way the writers have kept the stories evolving this season. Buck, Diaz, and Chimney helped Maddie move into her new place, and sparks flew between Maddie and Chimney! I originally thought she’d make a cute couple with Diaz, but after this episode, I can see there is definitely a promising relationship for her with Chimney. He’s older, more stable, and I think he can give her the emotional support she needs right now, especially as she deals with handling the trauma of her abusive marriage.

Buck found himself attracted to a reporter doing a piece on the firehouse but questioned it after seeing she cared more about a juicy story than the people it affects.

Bobby was struggling to deal with the fact that his daughter would have been 13 years old and his guilt over his failure to protect her. Athena was there for him, and it is touching to watch him be welcomed into her family by both her kids and her ex-husband. I think these two should head toward marriage because they are perfect together. I’m looking forward to seeing where all of these relationships go.

On tonight’s episode, “Haunted,” Halloween finds the first responders racing to the rescue at a cemetery, a haunted hayride, and a spooky Hollywood parade; meanwhile Maddie thinks she has received a “ghost” call from a missing hiker; Hen finds herself facing a life-or-death situation with the father who abandoned her; Eddie reconnects with his estranged wife.

Find out how Eddie handles this blast from the past tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Resident, The Voice, The Good Doctor, The Neighborhood, Happy Together, Magnum PI, Bull, and Halloween Baking Championship.

The “Arrowverse’s” epic return continues tonight when DC’s Legends of Tomorrow comes back.

This is another show that ended on a crazy cliff hanger last year, which left us some hint of what this year’s season 4 might be about. In last spring’s finale, Damien Darhk sacrificed himself to become the demon Malice instead of his daughter, Nora. (Why are Darhk & Flash’s daughters named the same??!?!) Mya and Ray meanwhile took some shaman drug to commune with the ancestral totem bearers to learn how to use the totems to defeat the demon.

The team was hiding out in temporal anomalous zone: Salvation Montana in the 1860s. They met up with Johna Hex once again & also got to see Jefferson Jackson, who used to be Firestorm. Jefferson had aged five years since they last saw him, and he had a wife & child now. Unfortunately undead armies of Roman soldiers, pirates, & vikings showed up soon enough, representing Malice’s agenda. In the “High Noon” battle with the undead legions, they at first defeated them all, but Malice just reanimated them again. So the Legends had to pool the powers of the totems to become the champion that could defeat the demon. They formed into a giant “Bebo” stuffed doll and promptly kicked Malice’s butt!

In the celebrations that followed, though, mystic warrior John Constantine showed up and told them that by destroying Malice, they had cause massive repercussions through the world of the supernatural. That set the tone for what we have to look forward to in this next year. Also Mya returned to her own timeline, and she and Ray broke up, but we knew that was coming. She only was on the waverider to complete this totem arc. We know that Legends will not be part of the Elseworlds crossover that The Flash, Arrow, & Supergirl will be doing (a crossover which will launch the upcoming CW show Batwoman!!!). But looks like they will be teaming up with Constantine. This show is always funny and has so much heart. Here’s to hoping for four more years!

On tonight’s episode, “The Virgin Gary,” after the Legends defeated Mallus and wiped the final anachronism from time, they find themselves in unfamiliar territory with the Time Bureau. All that changes when Constantine informs Sara of a new magical threat that leads the team to Woodstock. Constantine thinks he knows how to defeat the new threat but will need the help of the team and their special klepto talents to help with his spell. Meanwhile, Nate and Rory go on an adventure, leaving Nate facing someone from his past.

Find out what threat leads the team to Woodstock tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Arrow.
