I’m still really enjoying The Brave. I love all the characters and the story lines. Last week was a tense one, when the team went over to Afghanistan to interrogate a former US soldier turned member of the Taliban to find out which military base the group was targeting next. Patricia actually went out into the field with the team this time because of her skills as an interrogator. Unfortunately, while they were there at the prison, a guard colluded with one of the prisoners, which allowed the prisoners to kill the guards and take over the prison in order to escape. After some trial and error at finding a way out of the prison, they made their own with explosives, taking the American prisoner with them. Thankfully, even though they were chased, shot at, and nearly blown up by some of the bad guys, our guys escaped relatively unharmed – and Patricia was able to get the location of the target from the prisoner.

What I really enjoyed was the episode’s opening and ending, with Patricia gathering dirt from Afghanistan – a physical reminder of her son, who died while serving overseas. I also really enjoyed seeing Jaz set up her sniper position with the motion sensor, and when it went off, she just calmly switched guns and shot without much more than a glance, knowing whoever was coming up without warning was a bad guy. And finally, with Patricia away from the office, Noah was left in charge. And although Hannah teased him about showing up in a suit and tie, he really did a great job filling in for Patricia, making the tough call when needed. It was great to see him stepping up and taking charge. I’m going to be very, very sad if this show doesn’t get picked up for a full season!

On tonight’s episode, “Enhanced Protection,” when Ambassador Charles Webb (guest star Ben Cain) is in danger while stationed in Nigeria, Dalton’s team heads to the region to find a situation different than they expected. Jaz makes a connection with a little girl she meets during the mission, and Patricia receives some personal news. D.K. Uzoukwo, Amanda Warren, and Jimmy Jean-Louis also guest star.

See what situation they find themselves in tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Dancing with the Stars, 9JKL, The Gifted, Halloween Baking Championship, & Scorpion.

Last week’s premiere of Chicago PD was rough. Don’t get me wrong… It was great, and I enjoyed it. But it was tough for several reasons. One was because Erin was gone. Jay seemed…lost…a couple of times. When he walked through the empty apartment (well, almost empty… what was with that stack of books just randomly left there?!) and found the picture of the two of them, my shipper heart broke. I certainly don’t begrudge Sophia Bush for wanting to move on, but Erin Lindsay was one of my favorite characters on TV, and I loved shipping her and Halstead. Poor Voight was dealing with her absence as well, but he seemed to be handling it better than Halstead. I did like seeing Hailey on the team for good. She’s a good fit with the others so far. As for the story line, it was tough to watch, especially Halstead learning he was the one who shot the little girl, but in the end, it worked out okay. I also wasn’t thrilled about Voight’s former partner, Denny Woods (Mykelti Williamson), being back — having been found to be a “good cop,” really?! — and having been given the task of overseeing an internal investigation of Intelligence. Ugh.

Given the state of affairs in the world right now, tonight’s episode is going to hit hard for many people. But I also hope that it opens peoples’ eyes to show that you can’t judge a book by its cover…meaning you can’t judge one person based on what another person does/other people do. Hopefully it’ll be a good teaching episode as well as an entertaining one.

On tonight’s episode, “The Thing About Heroes,” after a van explodes during a Chicago street festival, a Muslim patrol officer Frank Toma (guest star Ben Youcef) goes missing, and evidence quickly piles up pointing to his involvement. Burgess — who helped train Toma — is desperate to prove his innocence, even if that means going against her superiors.

See how Burgess defends her friend tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, SEAL Team, Worst Cooks in America, American Housewife, Best Baker in America, & Criminal Minds.

ABC’s Tuesday comedy block is one of my favorites, and tonight new comedy The Mayor joins the lineup. Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall, Search Party) is a struggling 27-year-old rapper from California who decides to enter his local mayoral race in order to get some free promotion for his forthcoming album. However, when he ends up beating the incumbent (David Spade, Rules of Engagement), his mother Dina (Yvette Nicole Brown, Community) urges him to take the job seriously and use his new position to make a difference for his community. Aiding Courtney in this new political endeavor are his best friends Marcel (T.K. Clifton) & Jermaine (Bernard David Jones, Meet the Browns), and Valentina (Lea Michele, Glee, Scream Queens), the former mayor’s campaign manager.

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere — this show has that perfect blend of humor and heart that the ABC comedies are known for. It’s just a fun, family friendly comedy. I’ve always enjoyed Yvette Nicole Brown’s work, so I’m happy to see her in yet another sitcom — and the same goes for Lea Michelle. This series looks like it will make a great addition to ABC’s Tuesday comedy lineup.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” Courtney runs for mayor as a publicity stunt and unexpectedly wins the election.

Cast your vote tonight on ABC at 9:30/8:30c.

Tonight, FOX kicks off the new paranormal comedy Ghosted, starring Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) and Craig Robinson (The Office) as mismatched partners recruited by a top-secret government agency to search for a missing agent. Max (Scott) is a brilliant but disgraced astrophysicist who now works at a bookstore. The former Stanford professor lost his credibility after he started making claims that his wife had been abducted by aliens. Meanwhile, Leroy (Robinson) was the best missing persons detective the LAPD ever had, but now he’s a divorced dad working as a mall cop. Heading up the Bureau Underground is Captain Ava Lafrey (Ally Walker, Colony, Longmire), technician Barry Shaw (Adeel Akhtar, Unforgotten, The Night Manager), and Agent Annie (Amber Stevens West, The Carmichael Show).

The series has a bit of an X-Files/Mulder & Scully vibe with the believer and the skeptic partnered up to investigate paranormal cases. Adam Scott and Craig Robinson have great chemistry and comedic timing, which makes this show a lot of fun. There is also a bit of an 80s throwback vibe to the show, especially in the soundtrack and score. The end of tonight’s premiere definitely leaves you wanting to see more, and I look forward to seeing what strange cases and misadventures these two get involved in in future episodes.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” a key member of a top-secret government agency goes missing, so cynical former detective Leroy and genius “true believer” Max are recruited to find him. The two polar opposites must work together to find the agent, while uncovering possible alien activity and chilling “unexplained” paranormal events in their own city of Los Angeles.

See if this new comedy’s for you tonight on FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

It’s going to be a big season of change on Hawaii Five-0. Last season ended with the team shutting down as much of the human trafficking ring and rescuing as many young girls as they could, but Kono couldn’t leave it alone. It hit her hard, and she decided she was going to go to the mainland and see if she could take out some more of the traffickers and rescue more of the kidnapped girls. Also, Chin Ho was offered a job by Federal Prosecutor Robert Coughlin (who originally went after Five-0 using Abby as his inside man): to lead his own Five-0-type team in San Francisco, where Abby used to live. Over the summer, we learned that both Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park had been let go from the show, so we know that Kono is still off trying to shut down the traffickers and Chin accepted the job, taking him, Abby, and Sarah to San Francisco. As much as I hate to see them go (and I do TRULY hate to see them go, both the actors & the characters), this is much better than killing them off or putting them in WitSec (looking at you, Criminal Minds!).

The show was quick to fill their spots. First, Kono’s husband, Adam, will stick around, as Ian Anthony Dale has been upped to a series regular. Despite his past and family history, Steve will recruit him to help with a specific case later in the season, and I believe he stays. Meaghan Rath (Being Human) joins the cast in the premiere as a lifeguard who was kicked out of the police academy, despite being a strong contender. Think of her as the female Steve McGarrett — not afraid to bend or even break the rules to get done what needs to be done if it’s something that is right. And finally, relative newcomer Beulah Koale will join as a Navy SEAL who just returned (like, DAYS before) from serving and asks McGarett for a job. It’ll be interesting to see how Steve, Danny, and the others handle the newbies and having Adam around more! (Especially how Steve & Danny handle having a female Steve there. LOL)

On tonight’s episode, “’A’ole e ‘olelo mai ana ke ahi ua ana ia (Fire Will Never Say That It Has Had Enough),” McGarrett and Danny recruit Tani Rey to join the task force when diabolical hacker Aaron Wright (guest star Joey Lawrence) releases a dangerous arsonist from prison. Also, Randy Couture and Andrew Lawrence also return as guest stars.

Don’t miss the exciting premiere tonight on CBS at 9/8c.
