Last week on 9-1-1, there was a lot going on with multiple people, and I am impressed at the way the writers have kept the stories evolving this season. Buck, Diaz, and Chimney helped Maddie move into her new place, and sparks flew between Maddie and Chimney! I originally thought she’d make a cute couple with Diaz, but after this episode, I can see there is definitely a promising relationship for her with Chimney. He’s older, more stable, and I think he can give her the emotional support she needs right now, especially as she deals with handling the trauma of her abusive marriage.

Buck found himself attracted to a reporter doing a piece on the firehouse but questioned it after seeing she cared more about a juicy story than the people it affects.

Bobby was struggling to deal with the fact that his daughter would have been 13 years old and his guilt over his failure to protect her. Athena was there for him, and it is touching to watch him be welcomed into her family by both her kids and her ex-husband. I think these two should head toward marriage because they are perfect together. I’m looking forward to seeing where all of these relationships go.

On tonight’s episode, “Haunted,” Halloween finds the first responders racing to the rescue at a cemetery, a haunted hayride, and a spooky Hollywood parade; meanwhile Maddie thinks she has received a “ghost” call from a missing hiker; Hen finds herself facing a life-or-death situation with the father who abandoned her; Eddie reconnects with his estranged wife.

Find out how Eddie handles this blast from the past tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Resident, The Voice, The Good Doctor, The Neighborhood, Happy Together, Magnum PI, Bull, and Halloween Baking Championship.

The “Arrowverse’s” epic return continues tonight when DC’s Legends of Tomorrow comes back.

This is another show that ended on a crazy cliff hanger last year, which left us some hint of what this year’s season 4 might be about. In last spring’s finale, Damien Darhk sacrificed himself to become the demon Malice instead of his daughter, Nora. (Why are Darhk & Flash’s daughters named the same??!?!) Mya and Ray meanwhile took some shaman drug to commune with the ancestral totem bearers to learn how to use the totems to defeat the demon.

The team was hiding out in temporal anomalous zone: Salvation Montana in the 1860s. They met up with Johna Hex once again & also got to see Jefferson Jackson, who used to be Firestorm. Jefferson had aged five years since they last saw him, and he had a wife & child now. Unfortunately undead armies of Roman soldiers, pirates, & vikings showed up soon enough, representing Malice’s agenda. In the “High Noon” battle with the undead legions, they at first defeated them all, but Malice just reanimated them again. So the Legends had to pool the powers of the totems to become the champion that could defeat the demon. They formed into a giant “Bebo” stuffed doll and promptly kicked Malice’s butt!

In the celebrations that followed, though, mystic warrior John Constantine showed up and told them that by destroying Malice, they had cause massive repercussions through the world of the supernatural. That set the tone for what we have to look forward to in this next year. Also Mya returned to her own timeline, and she and Ray broke up, but we knew that was coming. She only was on the waverider to complete this totem arc. We know that Legends will not be part of the Elseworlds crossover that The Flash, Arrow, & Supergirl will be doing (a crossover which will launch the upcoming CW show Batwoman!!!). But looks like they will be teaming up with Constantine. This show is always funny and has so much heart. Here’s to hoping for four more years!

On tonight’s episode, “The Virgin Gary,” after the Legends defeated Mallus and wiped the final anachronism from time, they find themselves in unfamiliar territory with the Time Bureau. All that changes when Constantine informs Sara of a new magical threat that leads the team to Woodstock. Constantine thinks he knows how to defeat the new threat but will need the help of the team and their special klepto talents to help with his spell. Meanwhile, Nate and Rory go on an adventure, leaving Nate facing someone from his past.

Find out what threat leads the team to Woodstock tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Arrow.

One of my favorite things about October is that it brings the Halloween-themed TV episodes, and tonight Halloween hits the FOX Sunday lineup. The Simpsons opens the night with its annual “Treehouse of Horror” episode, which features homages to Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Split, and Jurassic Park. This was originally going to be my recommendation for the night, until I checked out tonight’s episode of Bob’s Burgers. I always enjoy this series, but the Halloween episodes especially so. No other show seems to bring me back to the fun times of trick-or-treating as a child like this one does. Though the Belcher kids always have far more creative costumes and always get mixed up in some crazy adventure during their annual quest for candy. Tonight’s may be my favorite Halloween episode since the show’s first one back in season 3. Besides the ingenious costumes that pop up throughout, Gene has some hilarious one-liners, and there’s a really fun side plot involving Bob and Teddy.

On tonight’s episode of The Simpsons, “Treehouse of Horror XXIX,” Homer wins an oyster-eating contest against the mythical Cthulhu; Springfield is overrun by plant body-snatchers; Lisa finally snaps; Mr. Burns opens a retirement home with some Jurassic upgrades.

Then, in Bob’s Burgers, “Nightmare on Ocean Avenue Street,” the kids set out for their regular Halloween shenanigans, but when everyone’s candy bags start mysteriously disappearing, it’s up to Tina, Louise, and Gene to find the culprit.

To see the Halloween fun, tune in to FOX starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording God Friended Me, Family Guy, Supergirl, The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, You, Camping, and Kidding.

If you were a big fan of the original Charmed like I was, you’re either really excited about or really dreading tonight’s premiere of the “reboot” or whatever they’re calling it. It’s a little confusing because it’s not the same characters, but it is the same premise, yet one trailer does mention one of the characters from the original…so who knows!

Sisters Mel (Melonie Diaz, Laughs Unlimited) and Maggie (Sarah Jeffery, Shades of Blue) are dealing with the tragic death of their mother when they suddenly learn they have an older sister named Macy (Madeleine Mantock, Into the Badlands, The Tomorrow People). Then comes an even bigger shock: they find out they’re witches and each suddenly exhibit impossible new abilities. They speak to Harry Greenwood (Rupert Evans, Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond, The Man in the High Castle), who explains about their mother and now the three of them being powerful witches and that he’s their “Whitelighter,” or advisor/guide. Together, the three of them must decide to accept their new destiny as the Charmed Ones and their new duty to hunt down the demons that walk among humans – including the one who killed their mother. Charlie Gillespie, Ellen Tamaki, and Ser’Darius Blain also star.

I can’t go into this show prepared to compare it to the original. That version (along with Prue, Piper, Phoebe, & Paige, not to mention Leo, Chris, & Darryl) will always hold a special place in my heart. So I have to watch and think of it as something new or else I know I won’t return for a second ep. What about you? Are you planning to watch?

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” after the tragic death of Mel and Maggie’s mother, the sisters are shocked to discover they have an older sister; the three sisters begin to exhibit strange new abilities.

Find out what abilities the sisters have tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Halloween Wars, NCIS: LA, & Haunted Gingerbread Showdown.

Last week on Blue Bloods, we watched Jamie tackle his first day in his new position as a sergeant at a new precinct – which, from what we observed in the couple of scenes we got, needs a lot of help. His new boss told him to go in hard, with a firm hand, which is against Jamie’s natural instinct. He surprised me and did that well, by performing a spot uniform check. He’s already found a young officer who he (& we) can tell has the makings of a good cop, but when Jamie tried to get him to explain what was going on to cause the locker room fight, the guy balked, saying he couldn’t become a snitch. It seemed like he didn’t want to squeal because he needed to fit in, not because he just didn’t want to be a snitch. It’ll be fun seeing if/how Jamie can break down his walls. Oh, and one of my favorite parts of the episode was Sunday dinner. Eddie was still on her best behavior, trying to be sweet and nice and overly complimentary. So the family did something they do when someone new joins the family. They picked out a single topic (in this case, the wedding and everything to do with it) and started piling on about it until Eddie finally broke. She put her foot down and basically said she appreciated it, but it was her wedding and she would handle it and all they had to do was show up and smile. Her reaction when the others reacted was great.

Another part of the episode dealt with Erin bucking her supervisor, who she believes gave preferential treatment to a wealthy friend by not charging him with domestic violence. Fortunately, the DA agreed with her and was going to take care of it himself, rather than Erin having to do it. We’ll see how that goes! Meanwhile, Frank and Baker (who is probably my favorite character on the show – she cracks me up, the way she handles Frank) dealt with Kelly Peterson, the corporation counsel who handles civil complaints against the department, who came to him with a complaint from a sexual assault victim who said the SVU detective had treated her poorly. Frank was unsure of what to do, and Baker took it upon herself to go undercover, so to speak, as an assault victim. And it turned out, the SVU detective was indeed very insensitive. He didn’t do anything illegal, but he certainly needed to be out of SVU, which is what Frank decided, and in the end, Frank said he was starting basically an oversight-type committee, and he asked Baker to be on it. It was a sweet moment.

Finally, although Frank was unaware of it, Gormley went to Danny and Baez and asked them to look into threats against Frank. He believed it was a former detective who’d been fired after money went missing during drug cases, and he was right. In the end, though, the former detective wasn’t the one who went after “Frank” (who turned out to be an undercover detective/officer) with a gun. It was the guy’s adopted son who was trying to get revenge for his father. I felt bad for the former detective, who wised up in the end but felt responsible for his son’s actions.

On tonight’s episode, “Mind Games,” while investigating a case involving a woman who shot her husband while she was drunk, Danny’s instincts tell him there is more to the story. Also, Anthony ignores Erin’s orders to drop an assault case; Frank holds an emergency drill for his inner circle; and Jamie and Eddie navigate their changing work-life dynamic.

Find out what the rest of the story involves tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, Last Man Standing, MacGyver, The Cool Kids, Hawaii Five-0, & Hell’s Kitchen.
