Tonight, the hilarious TBS comedy, The Detour, returns for its third season. Last season, the Parker family moved to New York City, where they ran into Robin’s con-man father, J.R., who managed to get them involved in one of his seedy plans. J.R. was illegally obtaining pieces of an infamous statue of Saddam Hussein that he planned to reconstruct on one of his properties. At the end of the season, J.R. had kidnapped Delilah & Jareb and took them with him to Cuba. After rescuing their children, Robin, Nate, and the kids accidentally found themselves in a boat with Cubans who were defecting to America. However, the Parkers were still wanted by the FBI for the questionable import/exporting business J.R. got them mixed up in.

As the third season begins, the Parkers have been on the run for the past year, traveling from state to state, trying to keep a low profile from the USPIS. They now find themselves in Alaska, during the period when it is sunny 24 hours a day. They are tired of running and decide to try make a home there, but as usual, nothing ever really goes as planned for the Parkers!

This show constantly has me laughing out loud. I love how the series manages to completely reinvent itself each season (even down to the theme song). Each year the Parkers find themselves in some new setting/predicament, and despite their best intentions, things only get worse for them as the season progresses. However, dumb luck always seems to prevail with the Parkers. I also really enjoy the show’s no-holds-barred humor. The writers don’t worry about being politically correct, and no situation is too inappropriate. The cast is fantastic and really play well off one another. Jason Jones & Natalie Zea make Nate and Robin feel like a realistic couple, and the actors who play their children (Ashley Gerasimovich & Liam Carroll) are hilarious. This season, Graham Greene (Longmire) joins the cast as one the Parkers’ new Alaskan neighbors.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Run,” the Parkers finally settle in Alaska after a year on the lam, believing it to be the last place anyone would look for them, but their lies and deceits soon come back to haunt them.

Catch up with the Parkers in Alaska tonight on TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording This Is Us, LA to Vegas, The Mick, The Flash, Black Lightning, and Mosaic.

Tonight, FOX kicks off the new comedy LA to Vegas, which follows the exploits of the passengers and crew aboard the Jackpot Airlines weekend flights between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Piloting the plane is Captain Dave (Dylan McDermott, American Horror Story, The Practice) – a thrice-divorced guy who’s more in love with himself than anyone else and who puts having fun above everything else. He’ll hit on passengers and joke about getting high in the cockpit. Flight attendants Ronnie (Kim Matula, The Bold and the Beautiful, UnReal) and Bernard (Nathan Lee Graham, Zoolander) aren’t that much better and don’t put a whole lot of effort into doing their jobs properly either. Some of the flight’s regular passengers include Economics professor Colin (Ed Weeks, The Mindy Project), stripper Nichole (Olivia Macklin, The Young Pope, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll), and gambler/con man Artem (Peter Stormare, American Gods, Prison Break).

I thoroughly enjoyed the few episodes I’ve seen of this series – it had me laughing out loud quite a few times. The cast is hilarious and really play really well off one another. The writers have done a great job of coming up with witty dialogue and fun situations and characters. The show’s setting allows for both ongoing developments with the recurring characters, as well as crazy new stories each week with new passengers or temporary crew members who pop in as guest stars. This is one of my favorites of the new midseason shows, and I am really looking forward to seeing more episodes!

Tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” introduces the shoestring budget airline crew and its eccentric passengers who, every weekend, take the roundtrip flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas with one goal in mind: to come back a winner. It won’t be easy, but this unlikely group of miscreants and dreamers will eventually go from being strangers on a plane to a supportive, if unconventional, family – well, at least from Friday to Sunday.

Check out the new show tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, and The Mick.

Early today, Hulu released all 13 episodes of the first season of the new sci-fi comedy Future Man. Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson, The Hunger Games) still lives at home with his parents, Gabe (Ed Begley Jr., St. Elsewhere) & Diana (Glenne Headly, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels). He works a dead-end job as a janitor at Kronish Laboratories, a sexual-disease research facility. He is obsessed with an unwinnable video game called Biotic Wars – it seems that no matter what he tries, he cannot complete the final level. However, one day he changes up his strategy and manages to win the game. Soon afterwards, he is visited by two characters from the game, Resistance leader Tiger (Eliza Coupe, Happy Endings) and foot soldier Wolf (Derek Wilson, Preacher, Rectify). They have traveled back in time from a bleak future, and Josh is the only person who can help fix things – the video game was a recruitment tool/test to help them find their Savior. After Josh gets over his initial disbelief, he soon discovers that these visitors are a quite crude, violent, and don’t understand proper human behavior. At the same time, Tiger and Wolf are disappointed to learn that Josh is not quite the fierce warrior they expected him to be. This trio must learn to work together to prevent the series of events that led up to the downfall of the planet.

The series comes from executive producers/directors Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg (Preacher). I recently binged the first seven episodes, and I would have watched the entire season had it been made available. Each episode blends right into the next, making the season feel like one long, epic movie. This show is hilarious, and I found myself constantly laughing out loud. It’s got physical humor, witty dialogue, and fun movie/pop-culture references strewn throughout. At the same time, it’s an action-packed sci-fi series. I also really enjoyed the fish-out-of-water aspect of Tiger and Wolf clashing/trying to fit in with modern culture and morals. It is so great seeing Eliza Coupe back on my TV in a comedy – Tiger is easily my favorite character on this series!

While the show may sound like a family friendly sci-fi action/comedy, there is a lot of adult language and situations, so parents may wish to check it out first before allowing younger viewers to watch.

Check out the entire first season now on Hulu!

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, This Is Us, The Mick, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Flash, American Horror Story: Cult, and Damnation.

Last week’s NCIS: New Orleans was all about the haunted aspect of New Orleans, when a murder turned out to be a copycat to an unsolved case from 150 years before. Ghosts, mediums… The episode had it all, including a freaked-out Gregorio, who was spooked beyond belief but claimed she didn’t believe in ghosts…until we saw her meeting secretly with the “medium” at the end of the episode, wanting him to speak to a ghost in her past. The case itself was sad, but the ghost/spooky stuff was the fun stuff. Sadly, we got some Lasalle/Percy talk about their…non-relationship issues, and for a while it seemed like they might be split up, but when he saved her from the killer, things got back to normal. I hope this doesn’t mean the writers are going to be just shoveling everything between them under the rug, never to be heard about again, like Criminal Minds did with Morgan and Garcia’s “thing.”

On tonight’s episode, “Viral,” Sebastian is placed on administrative leave after his response in a foot chase to apprehend a high-value fugitive is questioned by the FBI. Also, while Pride and the team continue to track the high value target, they attempt to find a way to clear Sebastian’s name.

See if the team can clear Sebastian’s name with the FBI tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, NCIS, The Little Couple, MasterChef Canada, The Mayor, Chopped, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, & Snoop Dogg Presents the Jokers Wild.

Tonight, the fourth season of The Flash begins on The CW. As the third season came to a close, Team Flash had its final showdown with speedster Savitar, who turned out to be a future version of Barry. In the process, H.R. sacrificed himself to save Iris, Caitlin learned there’s a cure for her condition, Cisco modified Savitar’s stolen Speed Cannon so that it would release Jay Garrick from prison, and Gypsy returned from across the multiverse to save Cisco. During the final altercation, Barry couldn’t bring himself to kill Savitar, but Iris was more than willing to do the deed, shooting him dead. Afterwards, Central City was being rocked by earthquakes. The Speed Force was unstable and the prison needed a replacement, so Barry volunteered to go, since all of this mess was due to his selfish acts. Meanwhile, Caitlin refused to take the cure, as she wanted to figure out who she really was.

Who will step up to protect Central City in Barry’s absence? How and when will Barry return from the Speed Force, and how will his time there have affected him? With Caitlin refusing to take the cure, is there a danger of her becoming evil again? With H.R. dead, will we see another version of Dr. Wells appear to take his place?

The third season was a bit of a downer, with Barry constantly moping about something or further messing things up due to his selfishness. Also, it was the third year in a row where the big villain was yet another speedster. The producers have promised to address these issues this season, getting this back to a more chill Barry and the lighter, more fun show people loved in the first season. Also, this year the big bad will not be yet another speedster! The Flash still remains my favorite of The CW’s superhero shows, and I’m looking forward to another season.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Flash Reborn,” a powerful armored villain threatens to level Central City if the Flash doesn’t appear, so Cisco makes a risky decision to break Barry out of the speed force. But the Barry that comes out isn’t the same Barry that went in.

Find out what’s different about Barry since his return tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, The Mick, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, American Horror Story: Cult, and Chrisley Knows Best.
