Last week’s Valentine’s Day-themed The Rookie was both funny and sad. First I have to touch on Tim’s visit to his wife at rehab. She looked really good, especially considering how she looked when we last saw her after she’d been shot in the head. She’s clean now, and Tim is happy about that, but he came to the realization that he can’t be with her without her remembering back to how she felt at her lowest point, and he’s afraid of that jeopardizing her recovery/sobriety. So he walked away. I would imagine that took a lot of courage and love, putting her health and good welfare above his own feelings. It was really sad.

Then there was the creepy guy (played by the always fantastic John Billingsley) who had dementia but was a serial killer. He attacked both West and the cutie nurse he was flirting with (and wow, who knew he was gay?), nearly getting away until Lopez tackled him in the stairwell. I thought it was going to go bad – worse than it did – but thank goodness everyone was okay. Making Lopez’s day worse, it looks like she and Wesley are done. When she asked him out for Vday after he was arrested for contempt of court, he said he’d already made plans. She sneaked into his things in the locker and checked his calendar, which said he had dinner plans with Melanie. Unfortunately for her, when she got snarky and brought it up with him, he told her Melanie was his stepmom and he’d planned to spend it with her since it was her first one without his dad. Oops. So now he’s angry that she snooped, and it looks like they’re done.

The both funniest and saddest parts of the episode had to do with Nolan and his “stalker,” whom he met on a call about a single-car accident. The woman had hit a power pole and ended up getting shocked by a downed power line. Nolan risked his life to get her and then performed CPR, bringing her back to life. The woman showed up at the station just after being released from the hospital, intending to give Nolan a big basket of muffins. He thanked her but made it clear he wasn’t interested in more. She then made a fake emergency call about an intruder to get him back to her house, and that’s when Nolan saw a photo and folded flag on her mantel. Her husband had died overseas just over a year before, and she was so lonely, she was doing anything to fill that void. She even showed up at Nolan’s house as Ben’s date for their “Anti-Valentine’s Day Party,” (at which it was first only Nolan, Ben, and Lucy). When Nolan went to tell her again that he wasn’t interested, he found her naked in his bed…and quickly realized she’d overdosed on pills. Thankfully they all worked to keep her awake and alert until EMTs got there. (And speaking of the party… After Lucy left to stay with the woman instead of Nolan accompanying her, Bishop was the only one to show up. It turned out she had a love interest who was married, and Lopez urged her to break up with him for good when she admitted he was still with his wife. She must have done that, because then she showed up at the party. And was it just me or were there sparks between her & Ben as they started talking about Nolan’s past?!

On tonight’s episode, “Caught Stealing,” the rookies become the prime suspects after it is discovered a large sum of money used in a drug bust has gone missing.

See if they determine who the real thief is tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Housewife, Ellen’s Game of Games, NCIS, The Kids Are Alright, Chopped, FBI, NCIS: New Orleans, & Miracle Workers.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/12/19

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Tonight, TBS kicks off the 7-episode limited comedy series Miracle Workers, which is based on the book “What in God’s Name” by Simon Rich (Man Seeking Woman). The series in set in the headquarters of Heaven, Inc., where everyone has pretty much given up on humanity. God (Steve Buscemi) has grown bored with his creation and is upset that his number of fans has been steadily declining. Assistant Sanjay (Karan Soni, Deadpool) is getting increasingly frustrated with his omnipotent boss, especially when he announces that he is ready to just blow up the Earth and move on to a new venture/hobby.

The only person who seems to care is Eliza Hunter (Geraldine Viswanathan, Blockers) – she is tired of working in the Dept. of Dirt and requests a transfer. She is excited to join the Dept. of Answered Prayers, where she will be able to do some good. But when she arrives for her first day, she discovers only a single co-worker – low-level angel Craig (Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Potter), who seems content with just resolving a few minor requests to find lost items and marking the rest “impossible,” sending them up to the big boss, where they remain unanswered. Eliza is eager to actually make a difference, and when she learns of God’s plan to destroy Earth, she makes a bet with him – God will spare Earth if she and Craig are able to close one impossible prayer over the next 2 weeks. Their seemingly impossible task? Helping humans Sam (John Bass, Baywatch, Big Time in Hollywood, FL) and Rosie (Lolly Adefope, Damned, Loaded) fall in love.

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere (which TBS has made available online and On Demand). It reminds me of The Good Place crossed with a workplace comedy, with some inspiration from series creator Simon Rich’s previous dating comedy Man Seeking Woman. I like that this is a short, limited series, so it’s not going to be a huge time commitment, and we’ll likely get a complete story in just 7 episodes. The main cast is a lot of fun and are joined by some great guest stars over the course of the series, including Tituss Burgess, Margaret Cho, Angela Kinsey, Tim Meadows, John Reynolds, and Chris Parnell. I look forward to seeing how the rest of the story plays out.

On tonight’s premiere, “2 Weeks,” frustrated with the mess that Earth’s become, God contemplates the end while two determined angels try to change his mind.

Go to Heaven and meet with God and his angels tonight on TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording American Housewife, The Kids Are Alright, black-ish, The Rookie, This Is Us, and The Flash.

The episode of FBI before the winter break was one of my favorites so far because we focused a lot on OA (plus there was the return of Billy Burke to TV, yay!). When an illegal arms broker turned informant was killed, OA assumed his identity and went undercover to stop the sale of danger weapons. OA rocked the undercover gig, so much so that at the end, he visited the FBI academy to talk to a class of recruits about undercover work. I loved how calm, cool, and collected he was each time he was with the bad guys (or girl…). One of my favorite moments was when he was meeting with the bad guy’s daughter (who turned out to be even more of a bad guy, killing her father and taking over the deal herself) for the first time and she asked about when he went to school with another player on the board. Maggie remembered the info just in time to feed it to him, and it all went smoothly.

I’m enjoying this show a lot. Sure, it’s not perfect, but it’s a lot of fun, and I love the cast.

On tonight’s episode, “Identity Crisis,” when a judge and her daughter are murdered after she sentenced a man to life in prison, Maggie and OA search for the killer behind a possible retaliation. Dana has a vested interest in this case as she has a history with the victim.

Find out who killed the judge and her daughter tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Conners, Ellen’s Game of Games, NCIS, NCIS: New Orleans, The Kids are Alright, & Chopped.

[I originally wrote this up last week, but CBS pulled it to air this week due to all the political crap that aired during primetime Tuesday. So if this seems familiar, that’s why. 😉 ]

Tonight, History kicks off the new scripted drama Project Blue Book. It is set in the 1950s, when there is a general sense of fear of impending doom with the Cold War and a nuclear threat looming. So when people start reporting UFO sightings, Air Force General James Harding (Neal McDonough, Legends of Tomorrow) wants to squash the reports before they cause even more public unrest. He assigns Captain Michael Quinn (Michael Malarkey, The Vampire Diaries) to a new clandestine operation, Project Blue Book, and has him recruit Dr. J. Allen Hynek (Aidan Gillen, Game of Thrones) to help him spearhead the operation.

Harding is interested in closing the cases as quickly as possible and just wants Captain Quinn to write up the reports and Dr. Hynek to help add scientific reasoning to give the reports legitimacy. Dr. Hynek is a brilliant professor of astrophysics at Ohio State University who had assisted the government during the war. Now he is settled down with wife Mimi (Laura Mennell, Loudermilk, Van Helsing) and their son, who is obsessed with sci-fi comics like Flash Gordon. Dr. Hynek wants to be thorough in his investigations and not necessarily provide the quick answers Harding is looking for. However, during his first case, Allen finds some mysterious and explainable things, uncovers what appears to be a larger conspiracy, and discovers that he’s being followed by a mystery man in a hat. What exactly has he gotten himself into?!

The series mixes sighting-of-the-week cases—based on real cases that Dr. J. Allen Hynek was involved with the 1950s and 60s—with several larger conspiracy/mysteries that are set up in the premiere. The series also stars Michael Harney (Orange is the New Black) as General Hugh Valentine, a man who is colluding on some secret project with General Harding; and Ksenia Solo (TURN: Washington’s Spies, Lost Girl) as Susie, a newlywed woman who is new to town and befriends Allen’s wife, Mimi.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Fuller Dogfight,” astrophysicist Dr. Allen Hynek is recruited by the U.S. Air Force into a top-secret program investigating UFOs; Dr. Hynek joins Capt. Michael Quinn to investigate the case of a military pilot who survived a dogfight with an alien craft.

Check out the fun new sci-fi drama tonight on History Channel at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Kids Are Alright, black-ish, The Rookie, and The Gifted.

TVx3 Podcast – Jenny & Kyle Joined Jason to Talk TV!

Last week, I spoke with Jason (@theTVaholic) & Kyle (@kyool) on Jason’s TVx3 podcast. That’s always a lot of fun, especially when I’m feeling pretty passionate about a show or two! This time, we talked not only cancelation and renewal news, as well as our own TV recommendations (hint: mine was this season of SEAL Team!), but also about recent episodes of 9-1-1, The Big Bang Theory, FBI, & The Rookie plus the first episode of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Be sure to check out the podcast and see what the three of us thought. As always, it’s entertaining because of how awesome we are similar or differing our opinions can be, depending on the show! Find the podcast here on TV times Three.
