Last week, we finally saw the resolution to the winter finale on The Brave, when Jaz was captured by the bad guys at the hotel in Tehran. Of course the team didn’t abandon her. They figured out where she was being held, but because there was no way to get in to get her, they decided to have Patricia leak the fact that Jaz was indeed a US spy. Then when the bad guys moved her to where they would publicly execute her, the team stopped the van, killed the bad guys, and rescued Jaz. Unfortunately, when the border crossing they thought would be empty was actually heavily guarded, Hossein sacrificed himself, thereby letting the team cross safely.

Patricia is in big trouble… It’s quite illegal to give out the names of US operatives, and even though she did it to save Jaz, and it did exactly what they’d hoped, she’s still in trouble. I haven’t heard about Anne Heche leaving the show, though, so she can’t be out that long… Of course, the show has only been given 13 episodes, meaning tonight’s plus two more, so there isn’t much left for her to be in or out of unless they renew it for season two, which we’re still waiting to hear. This is such a great, fun show, and it needs all the eyeballs it can get, so please, please tune in tonight, and share the word!

On tonight’s episode, “Grounded,” with Patricia out of commission, Noah is at the helm of the D.I.A. when FARC revolutionaries take control of a flight in Colombia. When negotiations mean life or death for the passengers on board, Hannah must make her return to the field.

See how it goes with Noah in charge and Hannah back in the field tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Man With a Plan, Kids Baking Championship, Superior Donuts, 9JKL, & Scorpion.

Desperate Housewives Would Be a Huge Hit if Revived

Source: Desperate Housewives via Twitter

Desperate Housewives is one of the best-loved and most successful American comedy-drama series of the 21st century. It ran for eight seasons from 2004 to 2012 and is still on reruns in several countries around the world. The comedy-drama and mystery series followed the lives of a group of married women and their daily successes, trials, and tribulations as seen through the eyes of their late friend and neighbour – thus the name Desperate Housewives.

The show had some well-known and talented cast, including Teri Hatcher and Marcia Cross, and one of them recently admitted that they would love to see the revival of the series. Eva Longoria, who played the role of Gabrielle Solis in Desperate Housewives, has been quoted by E!News as saying that she misses everything about the show and is very open to it being revived. The 42-year-old American actress did admit that it is unlikely that there will be a Season 9 of Desperate Housewives on the television screens, but fans of the show must now be more optimistic than ever about the revival of the series.

Kevin (Probably) Saves the World continues to be a fun, entertaining series. Two weeks ago, Kevin finally found the first righteous soul. However, while this was going on, Yvette had made herself visible to Tyler, and the two shared a romantic evening of dinner and dancing. Ever since, Tyler had been desperately trying to reconnect with her. Last week, fate led Kevin to help a lonely single guy get back into dating. However, he had chosen Kristin as his first date, and he wanted Kevin to join him on a double-date. So Kevin brought his sister Amy along, and things got a bit awkward. In the process, Kevin and Kristin realized they still had feelings for one another. Later, Kristin saw how well Kevin interacted with her students when she stepped out of the classroom for a few minutes, and so she submitted his name for the substitute teacher job at her school. Meanwhile, Reese, inspired by Kevin, befriended the odd new girl at school but regretted her decision after the girl became a bit too clingy. And Amy finally asked Nate out on a date.

While Kevin’s progress toward finding the righteous souls has been a bit slow this season (only 1 in 10 episodes!), the series has still done a great job of both evolving the main characters while also giving Kevin interesting souls of the week to help. It seems like everyone’s lives are moving in the right direction… Amy is finally going on a date with Nate, Kevin has a job (which also gets him closer to Kristin), and Kevin’s good activities are also wearing off on Reese. When will Kevin find his next righteous soul, and what other people in need will he help along the way? I look forward to finding out!

On tonight’s episode, “Solo,” as the newest substitute teacher at La Salle High School, Kevin tries to help an introverted student named Adam become more self-assured and popular. However, to do so, he must first pull off the second greatest freshman prank in the school’s history. Meanwhile, Yvette contemplates life after the mission, and Amy and Nate struggle to plan the perfect first date.

See how Kevin does as a substitute teacher tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, This Is Us, LA to Vegas, and The Mick.

It’s been too long (November 20!) since we last saw a new episode of The Brave, so let me catch you up in case you somehow have forgotten! The team learned the name of the man behind the truck bombing on the beach at the end of the series premiere: Fahim Jarif, an ongoing & known threat to the US and world security. The team went on the first mission we’ve seen of them meant for one purpose only…to track and kill a specific human being. So Dalton and team went to Tehran, Iran, where Jarif was living and working without worry about being stopped. Things didn’t go as planned at all…and the worst happened. Jaz was able to go undercover as the sister of a “friend” of Jarif’s and met with him. She was supposed to poison him, but a phone call from “her brother” made Jarif realize she wasn’t who she was pretending to be, so a fight ensued and she strangled him. The team worked to get her out of the hotel she and Jarif had met in, but Jaz was captured just before jumping out of the third-floor window. Then the screen went black. What a cliffhanger! Any of the US operatives captured in Iran would’ve been bad, but being a woman? That’s even worse. Especially since they aren’t supposed to even be there, which means they’re on their own and can’t expect the US to rescue Jaz or any of them.

So will the team just leave her there? If not, how will they rescue her…and if they do, will everyone survive? I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and it’s a great resolution to the huge cliffhanger. I’m so glad the show is back tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Desperate Measures,” Dalton and what remains of his team try to escape with their lives as they process a devastating loss. Meanwhile in D.C., Patricia will stop at nothing to make things right, even if it means putting her career at risk.

To see if the team can rescue Jaz, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Kids Baking Championship.

Kyle’s Choice #1

Early this morning, Amazon Prime Video launched the action/comedy series Jean-Claude Van Johnson. The series stars action movie icon Jean-Claude Van Damme playing a parody of himself. Van Damme is out of shape and has been retired for a couple of years but previously worked as a highly talented international black ops agent, using his movie sets as cover while performing undercover missions as Jean-Claude Van Johnson.

After a chance meeting with ex-partner/ex-lover Vanessa (Kat Foster, The Goodwin Games, ’Til Death), JCVD decides it’s time for him to get back in the game and asks handler Jane (Phylicia Rashad, The Cosby Show) to assign him to Vanessa’s mission. So he heads to Bulgaria to help stop a group of drug runners. For his cover, JCVD is starring in an action re-imagining of Huckleberry Finn. And supporting him on the mission are Vanessa – doing recon as his on-set hair stylist – and weapons expert/tech guy Luis (Moises Arias, Hannah Montana), who’s been inserted into the production crew. However, the team soon discovers that they have stumbled upon a plot much larger and more sinister than they imagined.

This series is so entertaining – it is equal parts comedy and solid action/thriller. Much of the humor comes from the overly dramatic acting, witty dialogue, and absurd situations that arise. Jean-Claude is hilarious and does a great job of poking fun at himself. His character is so in love with himself and never misses an opportunity to mention his previous work. However, sometimes JCVD starts to believe that all of the movie magic is real and overestimates his own abilities, getting himself into trouble. Jean-Claude also plays a second character in the series, one who literally had me laughing out loud.

The show is very self-aware, making fun of the tropes you see in all of those action films of the late 80s/90s. The first season follows a serialized story, with interesting and unexpected twists and turns that keep you guessing. While the show is quite funny, it also provides some incredible action sequences. Jean-Claude proves that he’s still got it – using kicks, spins, splits, and punches to take out the bad guys.

I can’t recommend this series highly enough. It’s a really fun and exciting romp that is definitely worth checking out. The first episode is available for free to everyone, but the rest of the season requires an Amazon Prime subscription.
