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.

Tonight, I’m both excited to see how the first season of Trial & Error will come to an end but also sad that these could be the final two episodes of this hilarious NBC series. Last week, Larry’s trial got underway, and the prosecution spent almost 28 days making their case. By the time it was finally the defense’s turn, Summer was starting to look like a suspect, and Josh wanted to put her on the stand in order to cast reasonable doubt for Larry. However, when Josh went against Larry’s wishes and called Summer to the stand, Larry exclaimed that he was guilty of killing Margaret, which was met with cheers from the prosecution and a horrified look from Josh.

Is Larry really guilty of killing his wife? And if not, who is the real killer and what was their motive? Will the judge take Larry’s outburst as a legal admission of guilt, or will Josh find some other way to try to clear Larry that doesn’t involve Summer? This show has been thoroughly entertaining and delightful. Every week the episodes have had me laughing out loud. I can’t wait to see how this trial ends and learn who was responsible for Margaret’s murder. I really hope this series gets picked up and we get to see this misfit defense team work on another case in this hilarious backwoods town!

On the first half of tonight’s 2-episode finale, “The Defense Rests,” Josh focuses on making his final case before closing arguments and takes a huge gamble by putting Larry on the stand. Despite hiring the best witness coach in the South to train him, Larry’s testimony leads to a shocking discovery about Larry’s past that may be too difficult to overcome. Then, in “The Verdict,” the trial is over and the verdict is announced. In other events, a key piece of evidence is found that answers the question of who killed Margaret Henderson.

Catch the two episodes and find out once and for all who killed Margaret Henderson tonight on NBC at a special time of 10:01/9:01c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, Imaginary Mary, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Prison Break, iZombie, The Americans, Cosplay Melee, and The Detour.

They blew up the lab!! Did that freak anyone else out at the end of last week’s Bones, when the lab at the Jeffersonian literally got blown to smithereens?? What a way to take down a set when a show is ending, huh? LMAO Anyway, through the viewpoint of four different characters, we followed each of them from the wedding reception up until the bomb went off. I’m totally going out of order, but here were the highlights: Cam’s purse was messed with at the wedding reception, and her keycard for the lab platform was stolen, which is ultimately how the bombs got smuggled into the lab in the middle of the night. Two prisoners escaped from prison, and Kovac (who was after Booth and his family and killed Max) was one of them – he then killed the other man and escaped. At the reception, Avalon warned Booth that Bones was in significant danger. He started to shrug it off but ultimately took the warning to heart. Bones and Angela had a sweet moment of friendship at the reception. Aubrey asked Jessica to move to LA with him when he goes for his new job. She not only turned him down but she broke up with him completely. Oh, and Angela’s pregnant! I figured that out as soon as she started puking her guts up at Zach’s trial. Speaking of Zach… Caroline did all she could to sway the judge in his favor, even though she was the PROSECUTION. It was sweet. And it worked. Between the evidence and all the testimony, Zach is a free man – as soon as he finishes serving the 13 months for helping the killer in the first place. Finally, back to the bomb… Bones had an epiphany moments before the bomb was discovered to be at the lab, and she ran off to grab the evidence, and that left her, Booth, Angela, and Hodgins (who was slower to get out because of his wheelchair)…TRAPPED IN THE LAB WHEN IT EXPLODED! What the what?!

Obviously they can’t all die, right? I trust Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan and their crew more than that. But will they all come away virtually unscathed? And will they find Kovac and whoever was helping him? Is Cam really leaving the Jeffersonian like she said, at least for six months while she and Arastoo do some traveling? Will Angela’s baby be named Pookie Jr.? I know all (okay, most…) of those answers, since I’ve seen the finale. But you’ll have to find out for yourself. If you’re a fan of the show, I urge you not to miss tonight’s episode. It was made for the fans by the biggest fans of the show, Hart and Stephen, and it’s definitely not-to-be-missed!

On tonight’s episode, “The End in the End,” with Kovac still at large, the team searches for evidence to track him down. After Brennan experiences a setback, the rest of the team must figure out how to find Kovac without her, putting everything she has ever taught them to the test. When all signs point to Kovac having outside help, as well as a hideout, Booth and Brennan go searching for him.

Catch the final episode of a terrific series tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, Trial & Error, Chicago Fire, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.
