After a 15-month hiatus, Switched at Birth finally returns tonight to kick of the show’s fifth and final season on Freeform. When we last left off, Regina’s love Eric was wanted for a felony, so he fled with his son, leaving Regina once again lonely and alone. Bay was upset to learn that Travis secretly paid an art gallery to give her an art show but was left speechless when Travis kissed her and declared his feelings for her. Daphne and Mingo decided to take a break from one another for the summer as Daphne contemplated a summer internship assisting deaf children in China. John and Kathryn found a buyer for the car wash, but John was upset to learn that Kathryn had resorted to flirtation in order to knock down the price. And Lily went into labor, giving birth to Carlton Summers Kennish. The season finale then jumped ahead ten months to find Bay working as a tattoo artist in China when she receives an urgent call from Daphne, who is working in a nearby clinic, and Bay exclaims that they have to go home.

I’m looking forward to seeing how this final chapter plays out. What were Bay and Daphne doing in China, and what was said on that phone call that has them rushing back home? What is the status of John and Kathryn’s rocky marriage? Will Regina ever find love again? And what about Travis and Mingo? Have they moved on, or are they awaiting the girls’ return?

On tonight’s premiere, “The Call,” Daphne and Bay receive an emergency phone call while in China and return home, where Daphne readjusts to campus life and Bay feels conflicted about her feelings for Emmett. Meanwhile, Kathryn and John argue about her job; and Regina feels guilty about a secret romance.

Find out what sends Daphne and Bay home tonight on Freeform at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Wall, The Mick, Bones, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Face Off, and Teachers.

Freeform’s latest original series, Beyond, centers around a young man named Holden, who awakes from a 12-year coma to discover that he has some unusual abilities and finds himself at the center of a dangerous conspiracy. I’ve been watching week to week, but for those who want to binge all 8 episodes, the network made the entire season available on On Demand shortly after the premiere. When we last left off, Holden discovered that his parents had actually been separated and were only pretending to be together for his sake, and his younger brother headed back to college. Willa convinced Holden to re-enter the Realm and was helping to bring back his memories of this magical place where he “lived” with her during the years he was in a coma. Meanwhile, the mysterious man in the yellow jacket abducted Kevin for questioning and seemingly executed him afterwards. At the end of last week’s episode, Kevin’s brother – who was the one who originally put Holden in a coma – grabbed Holden at gunpoint, demanding to know where his brother was.

Who is this man in the yellow jacket who’s living a double life, what’s his agenda, and what did he want with Kevin? (I assume we’ll find out tonight, based on the episode title!) Is Kevin dead, and does his brother know about the Realm? Was putting Holden into a coma truly an accident, or was there more to it? Is Willa hiding something about why she and her grandfather need Holden to go back in? I’m enjoying the mystery so far, and the series has already been renewed for a second season, so there will be even more time for all of these questions to be properly answered.

On tonight’s episode, “The Man in the Yellow Jacket,” Holden seeks intel about the man who’s after him by teaming up with a former adversary. Meanwhile, the Matthews feel uncomfortable with Jeff’s presence in their lives; Luke struggles to find his place in the family; Willa helps another comatose patient; and Holden asks a girl out for the first time.

See if they can find the man in the yellow jacket tonight on Freeform at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Fan, Man With a Plan, The Celebrity Apprentice, Timeless, Gotham, and Lucifer.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/10/16

chicagopd210smallI love when get crossovers on NBC with the Chicago-based shows, and it’s fun when Law & Order: SVU is included. Tonight, it’s Chicago PD (my favorite of the Chicago series) that the New York City show is paired with. Dallas Roberts is back. He plays the deliciously evil Gregory Yates, who kidnapped and murdered a BUNCH of women, including Nadia on Chicago PD last season. They, along with the detectives from New York, helped catch him, and he was convicted of murder and put in prison. So why is he back? He’s escaped. Eek. It should be a fun ride as they attempt to catch him again in the back-to-back crossover episodes.

On tonight’s Law & Order: SVU episode, “Nationwide Manhunt,” Erin Lindsay and Antonio Dawson join the SVU team in the hunt for two escaped murderers they helped to convict. Dallas Roberts, Jefferson Mays, Sophia Bush, and Jon Seda guest star.

Then on the Chicago PD episode, “The Song of Gregory William Yates,” Intelligence learns that Yates intends to flee New York and is headed for Chicago. The SVU team informs them that Yates has been gathering information on Lindsay, and after Platt calls in a triple homicide likely at the hand of Yates, Benson and Fin catch the next plane to Chicago. Dallas Roberts, Mariska Hargitay, and Ice-T guest star.

Don’t miss either episode of exciting action tonight on NBC starting at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 2 Broke Girls, The Mysteries of Laura, The Goldbergs, Mike & Molly, Criminal Minds, Modern Family, Property Brothers, Hell’s Kitchen, black-ish, Code Black, & Restaurant Startup.

shannarachronicles2016smallIt may seem at times that all I watch is procedurals or cooking shows, but that’s not true. I am also a sucker for a good fantasy show, and The Shannara Chronicles has definitely caught my interest. It has adventure, magic, and unlikely heroes, all of which make for a fantastic series, not to mention it’s based off a bestselling book series written by the talented Terry Brooks.

In case you missed last week’s 2-hour premiere, here’s a brief rundown so you can easily catch up this week. The show takes place in a magical land known as the Four Lands, eons after the fall of humans. There is a special Elvish tree, Ellcrys, which protects the land from the demon world, but unfortunately it is dying. This sets the trio of Amberle, Wil Ohmsford, and Allanon on a quest to find a new, safe home for the tree before the boundary between the worlds is completely dissolved, bringing an unstoppable demon army into the Four Lands.

If you are a fan of fantasy and adventure, then you simply must tune into watch this show!

On last week’s episode, we got to know the characters and watched as the tree was found to be sick and the trio was formed. There were demons and love stories along with great fight scenes. If it wasn’t exciting enough for you, then you need to re-evaluate your idea of excitement.

On tonight’s episode, “Fury,” Wil and Amberle are kidnapped by Eretria and Cephalo while returning to the palace. But the Rovers are the least of their worries. Wil must learn how to use the Elfstones before a bloodthirsty Fury kills them all.

To see if this unlikely group can defeat the Fury, tune in to MTV at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Teen Wolf, Chopped, and New Girl.
