If you grew up in or had kids in 2003-2007, chances are you watched That’s So Raven. The show starred Raven-Symone as a Raven Baxter, a teenager who had psychic powers and often froze, starring off into space, when she would get a vision. Her best friends on the show were Chelsea and Eddie, and we also regularly saw her parents, Victor and Tanya, and brother Corey. Now, Raven-Symone is back in Raven’s Home, which centers around adult Raven and Chelsea, both newly divorced with kids of their own. Much like Fuller House, the two women decide to come together to help raise their kids: Raven’s 11-year-old twins, Booker (Issac Ryan Brown, black-ish, Miles from Tomorrowland) and Nia (Navia Robinson, Being Mary Jane), and Chelsea’s 9-year-old son, Levi (Jason Maybaum, Superstore). Their house is also frequented by the twins’ best friend and neighbor, Tess (Sky Katz, America’s Got Talent). Raven’s still seeing the future, but so is her son, Booker, which should make for a fun family dynamic.

I haven’t heard anything about whether or not we’ll see Victor, Tanya, or Corey around, but I do know Eddie (Orlando Brown) won’t be showing up. I’ll be interested to see if the spinoff has as much fun with just Raven, Chelsea, and their kids as the original series did.

On tonight’s episode, “Baxter’s Back!” Booker enlists Levi and Tess to help him convince Nia of his newfound abilities to see into the future. Meanwhile, Raven’s latest vision involves a family disagreement that leads her to meddle in her kids’ life at school.

Catch up on Raven’s & Chelsea’s lives tonight on Disney Channel at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Great British Baking Show.

Tonight, Disney Channel launches the new series Tangled: The Series, a follow-up to the hit 2010 animated feature film, with Mandy Moore (This Is Us) & Zachary Levi (Chuck) reprising their roles as Rapunzel & Eugene Fitzherbert. A couple weeks ago, Disney Channel aired an hour-long TV movie, Tangled Before Ever After, which followed the events of the film and set things up for the series. Princess Rapunzel, who had become a short-haired brunette by the end of the film, was deeply in love with Eugene but wanted to take some time to enjoy their relationship before getting married. However, her parents still wanted to keep her locked up in the castle, safe from the dangers of the world. One night she sneaked out of the castle with her lady-in-waiting, Cassandra (Eden Espinosa), and came across some magical rock spires that caused her ridiculously long blonde hair to grow back, which Rapunzel desperately tried to hide from her parents. The next day, Rapunzel’s coronation was interrupted by the rogue Lady Kane, who was out for revenge on the royal family. However, Rapunzel was able to use her extremely versatile new hair to save the day, along with help from Eugene and his frying pan and Cassandra and her sword skills.

The series looks like it will be a lot of fun, following Rapunzel, Eugene, and Cassandra as they go on new adventures, meet new characters, and encounter mystical new threats. The 2D animation style of the series is very different from that of the original film, but I found it just as delightful. I had a great time revisiting these characters in the recent TV movie, and I look forward to seeing more stories set in this world.

On tonight’s premiere, “What the Hair?!” Rapunzel and Cassandra venture out to a wizard’s cottage to find out what happened to her hair.

Catch the fun tonight on Disney Channel at 7:30/6:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grimm & Sleepy Hollow.

hawaiifiveo107smallHawaii Five-0 is off to a strong, exciting start to the season. They’ve chased a bad guy all over town on foot, and then last week they worked with a British MI6 agent to find a terrorist looking to cause nuclear reactors across Europe to meltdown. Thankfully they stopped it JUST before it happened – and then followed the agent to find him about to kill the bad guy responsible for killing his wife with a terrorist bombing. I personally didn’t find it fair that someone else got to kill the guy, but they only shot him when he started to shoot at them, so… This week, Alicia Brown (Claire Forlani), the former FBI profiler Steve asked for help with the serial killer in the first episode of the season, is back, so it should be fun!

On tonight’s episode, “He Moho Hou (New Player),” when FBI Profiler Alicia Brown (Claire Forlani) finds a body in her bed, she is forced to join McGarrett in the hunt for the chess-piece killer. Also, Kono reconnects with a former surfing competitor (Kanya Sesser), who is now a disabled and homeless war vet. Elizabeth Rohm (Law & Order) also guest stars.

See if Alicia, Steve, and the team can catch the chess-piece killer tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, Last Man Standing, MacGyver, & Blue Bloods.

thelionguardsmallTonight, the Disney Channel is airing an all-new animated special set in the world of The Lion King. The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar is the one-hour preview for a new animated series coming to Disney in January. Simba (Rob Lowe The Grinder) and Nala’s (Gabrielle Union, Being Mary Jane) cub Kion (Max Charles, The Strain) is growing up and wants to prove that he’s ready to follow in his father’s footsteps. The Lion Guard has been protecting the Pride Lands for ages and has always been comprised solely of lions. However, now that he is the leader of the group, Kion wants to assemble a more diverse group of animal friends, each with his or her own talents, to protect their home land from hyena Janja (Andrew Kishino) and his sidekicks, Cheezi (Vargus Mason) and Chungu (Kevin Schon).

The new Lion Guard consists of cheetah Fuli (Diamond White, Haunted Hathaways) who brings her speed, hippopotamus Beshte (Dusan Brown, About a Boy) who brings his strength, cattle egret Ono (Atticus Shaffer, The Middle) who brings his excellent sight, and honey badger Bunga (Joshua Rush) who brings his bravery. Some other familiar faces will also return – Kion’s sister Kiara (Eden Riegel, Youthful Daze), wisecracking meercat Timon (Kevin Schon) & warthog Pumbaa (Ernie Sabella), baboon Rafiki (Khary Payton, Teen Titans Go!), red-billed hornbill Zazu (Jeff Bennett), and the ghost of Mufasa (James Earl Jones). The cast of characters also includes Kiara’s lioness cub friends Tiifu (Sarah Hyland, Modern Family) and Zuri (Madison Pettis, The Fosters), and Janja’s minion vulture Mzingo (Jonny Rees, Hawaii Five-0).

While I never watched Disney’s previous Timon and Pumbaa animated spin-off series, I am really looking forward to checking out this new spin-off. I was a big fan of the original Lion King movie, and watching the trailer for tonight’s special, I was quickly reminded of why. It looks like this new show recaptures the humor, drama, and action that made that film franchise so great.

See if this new show will take you back to your childhood tonight on Disney Channel at 7/6c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, The Librarians, The Walking Dead, Into the Badlands, and Getting On.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/10/14

Today is a special day around my house, as my hilarious, awesome, and fantastic stepson Andrew turns 15! I am blessed daily that these kids have come into my life, and Andrew is one of the best kids a mom could ever want. After a day filled with birthday surprises for him, let’s see what we’re recommending on TV.

girlmeetsworldsmallA couple of weeks ago, I was sitting and watching Girl Meets World with my daughter Chloe, and the nostalgia hit me full force. I remember being young and watching Cory and Topanga on Boy Meets World, as well as falling in love with Ryder Strong—oh my, I had such a crush. Watching my daughter fall in love with the characters makes me so happy and gives me all those happy feelings that come with a show that you love. Ben Savage is still just as amusing as ever, and he really is a great teacher. Makes me miss Mr. Feenie. If you haven’t given this show a watch, you should, simply for the moment of remembering your youth. Pure awesomeness.

On tonight’s episode, “Girl Meets the Forgotten,” when the kids are assigned a special lesson on appreciation, Riley and Maya are forced to work in the school cafeteria while Lucas and Farkle are assigned janitorial duty.

To see why this show isn’t just for your kids, tune in to Disney at 8/7c.
