quantico927smallJoining ABC’s Sunday lineup tonight is the new drama Quantico. There has been a major terrorist attack on New York City, and the FBI suspect that it may have been initiated by a sleeper agent within the organization. As the investigation happens in the present, the show jumps back nine months earlier as a diverse crop of new trainees enters the FBI academy in Quantico, VA. Could one of these new recruits be the terrorist who masterminded the attack?

In the opener, we meet all the trainees, learn some of their secrets, and see some shifty behavior that makes all of them look like potential suspects. At the heart of the series is Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra), a tough, independent young woman who has a knack for reading people and noticing small details. The other agents include former Marine Ryan Booth (Jake McLaughlin, Believe), Mormon Eric Packer (Brian Jacob Smith, Stargate Universe), devout Muslim Nimah Amin (Yasmine Al Massri, Crossbones), girl-next-door Shelby Wyatt (Johanna Braddy, UnREAL), former CPA Simon Asher (Tate Ellington, The Mindy Project), golden boy Caleb Haas (Graham Rogers, Revolution), and instructors Liam O’Connor (Josh Hopkins, Cougar Town) and Miranda Shaw (Aunjanue Ellis, The Book of Negroes).

When I first saw the ads for the series, I had written it off as Grey’s Anatomy meets How To Get Away With Murder. However, I was pleasantly surprised by tonight’s premiere – it introduces some interesting characters, premise, and central mystery. It mixes some humor in with the drama and gives viewers some very unexpected and exciting twists. I look forward to seeing how it all plays out in the coming weeks as I try to figure out which of the recruits is hiding the biggest secret of them all!

On tonight’s premiere, “Run,” the new recruits arrive at the FBI Academy, where they are tasked with discovering a redacted secret about one of their classmates.

Meet the new recruits tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording CSI, Once Upon a Time, Blood & Oil, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, The Strain, The Great Food Truck Race, Fear the Walking Dead, Project Greenlight, and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

snl40thspecialsmallLive from New York, it’s…err…Sunday Night! Tonight, NBC celebrates four decades of Saturday Night Live with a huge, live SNL 40th Anniversary Special. There have been so many great sketches and characters over the years, and the series has launched the film and TV careers of so many hilarious men and women. Dozens of former cast members and guests will return for tonight’s special—thirty or so have already been confirmed, with likely even more celebs making surprise appearances. The confirmed former guests include Justin Timberlake, Emma Stone, Derek Jeter, Paul McCartney, Kanye West, Melissa McCarthy, Robert De Niro, Paul Simon, Jerry Seinfeld, Jack Nicholson, Peyton Manning, Jim Carrey, Alec Baldwin, Taylor Swift, Christopher Walken, Tom Hanks, and Betty White. And the confirmed former cast members include Jimmy Fallon, Chevy Chase, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Molly Shannon, Steve Martin, Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Amy Poehler, Dana Carvey, Kristen Wiig, Dan Akroyd, Chris Rock, Garrett Morris, Andy Samberg, Maya Rudolph, Martin Short, Bill Murray, and Sara Silverman.

With so many talented folks involved, it should be one amazing show! Will the special feature the returning folks doing the same characters and routines that made them famous? Or will they just take advantage of this amazing cast and come up with all new material? Or will they find a way to mash up the SNL world, bringing old and new characters together into fun new scenarios? And will there be some sort of tribute to cast members who are no longer with us, like John Belushi, Phil Hartman, Chris Farley, and Gilda Radner?

The night kicks off at 7/6c with a 1-hour red carpet special, followed by a three-and-a-half-hour show! I feel bad for the West Coast, who will need to try to avoid the live tweets and spoilers!

While I’m watching 4.5 hours of SNL, I’ll also be recording CSI, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, Worst Cooks in America, The Walking Dead, Togetherness, Looking, Shameless, and Episodes.

galavant125smallTonight, ABC’s hilarious four-week musical comedy event Galavant comes to a close. When we last left off, Galavant and his crew had made their way to the castle but were captured and thrown in the dungeon. Galavant’s big reunion with Madalena didn’t go as he had hoped—he professed his love, but she returned the favor by ordering Gareth to kill Isabella and torture the rest of them. However, Galavant seemed to have finally realized his feelings for Isabella, which gave him to the revived spirit to storm out of the dungeon, declaring he would save the day. Meanwhile, we learned that Richard was actually the second choice for king, as his brother didn’t want the job when they were young children. However, Kingsley has now returned to reclaim his throne.

How will it all end? What is Galavant’s big plan? Will Richard keep his kingdom, or will Madalena move on and marry Kingsley to maintain her lifestyle? Will Galavant save the day and live happily ever after with Isabella? With just 2 episodes and 4 songs left, I’m really excited for tonight’s big conclusion but also sad that tonight’s episode is the (hopefully just “season”) finale!

On tonight’s first episode, “My Cousin Izzy,” Galavant finally gets his chance to be a hero when King Richard challenges his brother to a duel and requires someone to fight for him. Then, in “It’s All in the Executions,” a plot to kill Kingsley is hatched before his duel with Richard.

See who takes (or keeps) the crown and if Galavant gets his woman tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording CSI, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, Downton Abbey, Worst Cooks in America, Sons of Liberty, Togetherness, Looking, Shameless, Episodes, and Mike Tyson Mysteries.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/23/14

We’re getting so close to Thanksgiving now. I’m so excited. My dad is coming up to Kansas from Oklahoma to celebrate with us, and we’re cooking everything (turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, corn casserole, stuffing—okay, we’re taking a shortcut and doing Stove Top. LOL—salad, and rolls), and it’s just gonna be a fun week. But we have a few days before that happens, so check out our recommendations for what to watch tonight on TV.

csi1123smallLast week’s CSI was all about the Gig Harbor Killer. Detective Shaw’s partner escaped and was recovering in the hospital. I knew immediately when she and Det. Shaw saw one another that there was something off…and it was confirmed when he met with Paul. He’s clearly working with the twins, but why? Is he really a bad guy? Or is Paul holding something over him? Whatever the case…it was creepy and not surprising!

I’m really excited for tonight’s episode specifically because of the guest stars. It’s an Alias reunion, with Greg Grunberg & Merrin Dungey both appearing. Love Greg. It’s been too long since I’ve had him on my TV regularly!

On tonight’s episode, “Road To Recovery,” the CSI team investigates the death of a woman full of alcohol and drugs in a pool at a rehab facility. Greg Grunberg, Merrin Dungey, Marc Blucas, Larry Sullivan, Marielle Jaffe, Chris Browning, Lea Moreno, & Brandon Quinn guest star.

To see why a drug and alcohol-related death at a rehab facility is suspicious, tune in to CBS at 10:30/9:30c. (But who knows, at this point… It could start earlier, could run way over. I always record the show before and record it an hour over, just to be safe. *rolls eyes*)

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Holiday Baking Championship, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/9/14

I’m having a busy weekend—family in town and all that—but a good one. And it’ll end great, since there’s some good stuff on tonight. Megan’s busy with her family, so it’s just Kyle & me tonight, so check out what we’re recommending.

csi1026smallI wrote this up for two weeks ago, but because football ran over so late both that week and last, it didn’t air. So you get my lovely view again because I’m still recommending it. 😉 And I’ll continue to recommend it each week until it FINALLY airs. LOL

CSI is my pick for tonight because I do love it, and tonight looks like it’ll be a fun episode. The last new ep was great too—a chemistry teacher was killed accidentally when the killer—another teacher at the school and a mother to one of the students—was trying to kill a student. She was part of a group of Wiccans and hoped (believed?) that she could cast a spell using the other kid’s blood that would heal her son, who was very, very sick. It was an incredibly sad but a really great episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Girls Gone Wilder,” Morgan, Sidle, and Finlay try to relax at a forensics conference when a mass shooting occurs on site.

See the women go wild tonight on CBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Funniest Home Videos, Guy’s Grocery Games, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Holiday Baking Championship, Catch a Contractor, & Cutthroat Kitchen.
