The Halloween heist episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine are always fun, and tonight, there’s a special heist episode in the same vein, which is why it’s my pick tonight. Last week, Gina contacted Jake and asked him and Terry to come to her place. She’s become an internet superstar “influencer” and hadn’t been in touch much at all since leaving the 99, so Terry was a little upset about it. Jake tried to convince him to give her a chance. When they got there, they had to wait while she filmed some weird “Gina as Moses” bit, but then she told them that she had an appearance coming up and the people behind it were threatening to close it down if she didn’t get a police presence because she’d gotten some death threats. During the guarding, Jake learned Gina had canceled on drinks with them for work and got upset. But in the end, after Gina was stabbed in the back by the husband of a woman who took Gina’s “advice” and left him because he concentrated more on parkour than her, she and Jake made up. Meanwhile, the side stories were Holt convincing Boyle that his son was a genius (when it turned out Nikolaj was just drawing a superhero logo and not solving a big math problem) and Amy trying to convince Rosa she could ask for help when she was trying to handle everything on her own with both of her hands out of commission. Both were fun story lines.

On tonight’s episode, “Cinco de Mayo,” in order to distract Terry from the stress of his upcoming lieutenant’s exam, Jake, Holt, and the squad decide to hold the annual Halloween heist on a new date, Cinco de Mayo.

See who wins this new heist tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Beat Bobby Flay, Impractical Jokers, & S.W.A.T.

Last week was Gina’s last week at the 99 on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Tying back to the previous episode, she took Jake’s advice and decided to spread her wings and fly. Much to Holt’s dismay, she didn’t have concrete plans for her future – basically anything that would then make her a millionaire. During his time with her, while they played game after game of chess, Holt tried to talk her out of it, but she stuck to her guns. The funniest part of the episode was Gina and Jake trying to get to Mario Lopez at the Manhattan Club and then having him show up at the “hungry monkeys” party only to be turned away. It was a sweet episode, seeing her spend time with all (okay, most…poor Hitchcock & Sully. LOL) of them – or in Terry’s case, giving him a subscription to the Yogurts of the World Club.

I love this show, and I love that the move to NBC didn’t change it. It’s still the same show we’ve always known and loved – funny and quick=witted with a little bit of heart.

On tonight’s episode, “A Tale of Two Bandits,” Terry believes the Pontiac Bandit is stealing cars again, but Jake is convinced his friend wouldn’t do that. The rest of the squad fight to keep Shaw’s a police bar after some firemen stake their claim to it. Craig Robinson & Rob Riggle guest star.

See if Terry or Jake are correct about Doug Judy tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, The Titan Games, Top Chef, Dr. Pimple Popper, Will & Grace, Beat Bobby Flay, & S.W.A.T.

First thing this morning, A Discovery of Witches made its U.S. debut on streaming services Sundance Now and Shudder. The series, which aired on Sky TV this past September in the UK, is based on the bestselling “All Souls” trilogy by Deborah Harkness. Historian Diana Bishop (Teresa Palmer, Hacksaw Ridge) is a witch who refuses to use her magical powers – not that she really knows how to control them anyway. After her parents were murdered, Diana was raised by her Aunt Sarah (Alex Kingston, ER, Doctor Who) and her partner Emily (Valarie Pettiford, Being Mary Jane) in their farmhouse in Madison County, New York. Sarah is upset that Diana denies her magical heritage and wants her niece to embrace being a witch, but Diana is more concerned with her academic career. While she received tenure at Yale, Diana has now returned to Oxford in hopes of obtaining a professorship.

While doing research for a paper on Alchemy, Diana accidentally discovers a bewitched manuscript that had been thought to have been lost for hundreds of years. When she opens the book, she finds herself thrust into a dangerous world of witches and vampires, with many parties eager to get their hands on the manuscript. Vampire/geneticist Dr. Matthew Clairmont (Matthew Goode, The Crown, Downton Abbey) has been trying to figure out why his breed are dying out and are having trouble siring new vampires. He has been looking for The Book of Life for over 100 years and believes the manuscript contains information about how the vampires were created – this information may be the key to their survival. He finds himself inexplicably drawn to Diana after she opens the book but must try to control his urges. Meanwhile, power-hungry witch Peter Knox (Owen Teale, Game of Thrones) is also after the book, but he has other, more nefarious purposes in mind.

This series is beautifully shot, with some really great production value. The pilot quickly establishes the main characters and some of the rules of this world, where vampires, witches, and other demons hide in plain sight among the humans, always fearful of being discovered. The first season is 8 episodes and covers the events of the first book of the trilogy. The series has already been renewed for two more seasons, and the plan is to cover one book per season, so there’s plenty more to come for fans! I’m not sure if there are plans to eventually air the series on the linear Sundance TV network, but today the entire season is available on both the Sundance Now and Shudder streaming services.

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, I got the chance to speak with some of the cast and creators of the series and hold the actual book itself! Check out my interview videos at NoReruns.net.

Check out the entire first season streaming now on Sundance Now and Shudder!

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, A Million Little Things, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Fam, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Good Place, Gotham, and The Orville.

Tonight, NBC’s The Good Place returns to kick off the first of its final three episodes of the season. When we last left off, Shawn and his demons from the Bad Place had found Michael and the others. The group managed to escape into Janet’s void. However, this killed the humans in the process. While in the void, the humans all took on Janet’s appearance. Eleanor and Chidi confronted their romantic past and feelings, and Jason and Tahani learned that Janet and Jason had been married at one point in their Good Place iterations. Meanwhile, Janet and Michael headed to Accounting to see if they could figure out what was going on. Michael was shocked to discover that in the past 521 years, no one had made it into the Good Place. If even the Doug Forcetts of the world weren’t getting into the Good Place, something fishy had to be going on! So Michael transported everyone into an empty office in the Good Place so they could investigate things further.

This show is constantly throwing all kinds of unexpected twists and turns at the viewer so that you never know where it will go next! Will Michael figure out how the Bad Place is manipulating the point system so that no one gets into the Good Place? What will Jason and Tahani do with this news about Janet’s feelings for Jason? And what other adventures and twists await our group as they return once again to the Good Place (the real one this time)? It’s sad to think that there are just three episodes left this season!

On tonight’s episode, “The Book of Dougs,” Michael presents his case to the Good Place Committee; Chidi tries to calm Eleanor down; Tahani struggles to help Jason and Janet.

Learn what the Good Place Committee decides tonight on NBC at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Fam, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Gotham, The Orville, and Top Chef.

Last week’s NCIS: LA wasn’t one of my favorites, for several reasons. Mainly because it was basically an extension to a previous episode with little bits and pieces of new stuff thrown in. Nicole DeChamps, who recruited Sam into an undercover op dealing with Peruvian counterfeiter Alfonso Marca in the episode that tied into this one, was back. She had left the Secret Service and was now a member of NCIS in the San Diego office. (NCIS: San Diego just doesn’t have the same ring, does it? LOL) Turned out Marca’s sort-of daughter was killed in prison and NCIS was asked to determine whether or not she’d been assassinated or if it was just a regular prison killing.

The most interesting parts of the episode were the non-case stuff. Callen went to talk to Anna (for the first time since she shot Sokolov) when he was called by ATF to give his statement about what he saw or didn’t see at the time. Anna was clearly not happy that Callen hadn’t come to see her before then and told him to tell the truth, that Sokolov was already dead when he got there and he hadn’t seen anything. Things are not all right in the Anna/Callen relationship.

Tonight’s double-episode season finale should be interesting…mainly for Kensi & Deeks (given the preview, so I won’t spoil) and for Mosley, who gets the chance to rescue her son. I’m excited for that part!

On tonight’s episodes, “A Line in the Sand/Ninguna Salida,” Sam is shot during a firefight with a cartel, and a suspect reveals new information on the whereabouts of Spencer Williams, the man who kidnapped Mosley’s son five years ago. Despite several team members having grave reservations, NCIS travels to Mexico for a daring mission to locate and rescue Mosley’s son.

To see if the rescue mission is successful and where the team is left at the end of the season, tune in to CBS starting at 8/7c.
