Tonight, FOX kicks off the fourth season of the gritty Batman drama Gotham. As the third season came to a close, there was a bit of a power struggle, with Barbara, Penguin, and even a resurrected Fish Mooney, all looking to gain control of the city. The Tetch virus was running through the city, and whichever one of them located Strange’s antidote first would control Gotham. Jim Gordon had become infected with the virus, so he, too, was after the cure to save himself and Lee. With Harvey’s help, he managed to procure two vials of the antidote, but Lee was less than thrilled to receive the cure — she had been enjoying the sense of power the virus had given her. Meanwhile, Bruce was off on his own journey of self-discovery, being brainwashed by Ra’s al Ghul. And Penguin was a bit distracted by his rivalry with Ed Nygma, which ended with Mr. Freeze putting The Riddler on ice. Penguin placed his frozen rival in his tavern as a centerpiece as he debated the most advantageous way to make use of a thawed Nygma.

The first half of fourth season is subtitled “A Dark Knight.” That means we’ll finally be seeing Bruce don a costume and heading out into the streets of Gotham to dole out vigilante justice. It looks like we’re in for another exciting season with the introduction of some more familiar villains, such as Scarecrow. I’m looking forward to seeing how the season plays out as Bruce finally becomes the masked hero we’ve been waiting for!

On tonight’s fourth season premiere, “Pax Penuina,” Gordon fears Jonathan Crane is still alive and back in Gotham when the Scarecrow’s signature MO is used in a series of robberies. Meanwhile, Penguin’s “licensing” of crime in the city backfires during the grand opening of his new Iceberg Lounge; and, in the aftermath of his encounter with Ra’s Al Ghul, Bruce begins his vigilante watch.

Don’t miss tonight’s premiere on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Orville, Flipping Out, Nathan for You, and The Guest Book.

blindspot229smallWe haven’t had a new episode of Blindspot since this time in NOVEMBER! Crazy that it’s been just over three months. So here’s a hopefully quick recap of where we left off. Patterson’s (ex-)boyfriend David was killed after following a woman he saw look at and do something with the book he and Patterson had found in the library. That woman turned out to be a sleeper agent – a Russian spy who’d lived quietly as an American for years until she was called up, who was able to surprise him and kill him, despite the man following David (who turned out to be an agent assigned by Mayfair to keep him safe). There were two other Russian sleeper agents. Ultimately, the team was able to take them down, including the woman who’d killed David. Jane then sneaked out of her safe house and went to Weller’s place, where she proclaimed she wanted a time that was just them, and then they kissed. And all the shippers cheered until his nephew interrupted them. Damn kids! LOL

Then Jane left to walk home, but she was kidnapped…by Carter’s team, we realized when she woke up to find herself tied down in a basement somewhere. He started torturing her by pouring water over her face and asking her who she is and what she knows about Project Daylight. She swore she didn’t know and finally asked him about Orion, which infuriated him even further. He picked up a drill, but before he could harm her further, the guy with the tree tattoo from Jane’s flashback memories swooped in and killed him. Then he showed Jane a video on his phone of her, before the tattoos and the FBI, saying to trust Oscar and that…dun, dun, dun…it was ALL her idea! Meanwhile, Zapata decided she was done playing ball with Carter, and rather than putting the bug in Jane’s place, she decided she would resign from the FBI.

Okay, so a lot of people kind of guessed that Jane had done it to herself. Now we know for certain that she did. What does that mean going forward? Why did she do it? Was she a good guy then too, or was she a bad guy and has she changed now that her memories were wiped? Is Carter really dead, or did he somehow survive three bullets to the chest? Did Zapata already turn in her resignation, or did Carter’s death save her career? And what about Jane & Weller? Did the kiss – or Jane’s new knowledge of her past – change things? I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and we will get answers to some of those things but not all! I have a feeling some of it will play out the rest of the season, if not series!

On tonight’s episode, “Cease Forcing Enemy,” Jane reels from a series of massive revelations about her tattoos and grapples with whether to trust Oscar (guest star Francois Arnaud). Meanwhile, a tattoo leads the team to a shocking discovery in the Black Sea.

See what the team discovers in the Black Sea tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Cake Wars, Lucifer, Major Crimes, Scorpion, NCIS: LA, & Castle.

ncisla928smallLast week was the season premiere of NCIS: LA, still one of my favorite shows, seven seasons in. The episode was almost all about Callen, which I’m kind of getting tired of. Don’t get me wrong… I love him. But isn’t it time to focus on one of the other members of the team? Kensi, Deeks, and Sam all have stories to tell too! But back to Callen… He was searching for Arkady, who we last saw in the season finale, after he’d been shot and the team had to leave him in the parking garage. To do that, Callen was lone-wolfing it, trying to do it all alone, and the others weren’t happy about it – especially Granger and Hetty. In the end, it all calmed down, and while Callen is still looking for Arkady, he’s not going to be going it alone as much. In addition to that, we got to hear the first (to us) “I love you”s from Kensi and Deeks, and Anatoli Kirkin was back to embarrass Deeks every time he mentioned the naked bath from last season.

This should be another good episode for fans of Deeks and Densi shippers, as we get to meet Deeks’s mom! And with Talia back, it should be fun!

On tonight’s episode, “Citadel,” DEA Agent Talia Del Campo (Mercedes Mason)
turns to the team for help after her partner is murdered. Also, after Kensi grows suspicious that Deeks is hiding something, he surprises her by introducing her to his mother (Pamela Reed).

Meet Deeks’s mom and see if the team can solve the murder and keep Talia safe tonight on CBS at 9:59/8:59c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Rachael Ray’s Kids Cook-Off, Life in Pieces, Minority Report, Scorpion, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Blindspot, & Castle.

gotham54smallTonight, the first season of Gotham comes to a close. Last week, Gordon and Bullock continued their search for the psychopath known as the Ogre, who had kidnapped and chained up Barbara. During his search for Barbara, Gordon was forced to make a deal with the Penguin and agreed to owe him a favor. When Bullock and Gordon finally did track down the Ogre, Gordon took the kill shot. Meanwhile, Penguin set up an attack on Maroni, making it look like it came from Falcone, fanning the flames for a huge mob war; Kristen walked in on Ed Nygma while he was disposing of Doughtery’s chopped-up body — fortunately the head was not around or she would have realized it was her missing boyfriend; and Bruce learned the truth about Wayne Enterprises — that it was full of deceit and corruption…and that his father knew about it.

So how will this season come to an end? Who will fall victim to the full-scale mob war that’s about to break out? And who will rise to rule over what’s left afterwards? Is Gordon going to get back with Barbara? He still seemed to have some feelings for her last week — so much so that he made a deal with the Penguin. And speaking of that, will the Penguin call in his chip? Will Bruce figure out what his father was hiding, and will it help him clean up the company? I’m looking forward to an exciting finale that will likely leave us anxious for the second season!

On tonight’s episode, “All Happy Families Are Alike,” the Gotham City gang war reaches its boiling point with Fish Mooney battling Maroni and Penguin. In other events, Barbara and Leslie Thompkins are brought together; and Bruce searches Wayne Manor for any clues as to what his father might have left behind.

Catch the exciting season finale tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Castle, Gotham, The Following, Jane the Virgin, Bates Motel, The Returned, and Turn.

gotham15smallTonight, Gotham finally returns from a 6-week break. When we were last in the city, a group of would-be assassins made their way into Wayne Manor—while Alfred confronted the assailants, Selina and Bruce escaped out the back. Elsewhere, Falcone threatened Cobblepot to identify the mole in his organization and later executed one of his men in front of Fish and the other bosses as a show of force. Meanwhile, Dent admitted to Gordon that he leaked the information about Selina being a witness. Gordon confronted Lovecraft—who ordered the hit—but as he was in the middle of telling Gordon that the Wayne killings were just a small part of a much bigger conspiracy, he was killed by an assassin. Gordon was blamed for allowing the murder to happen and was demoted from police detective to security guard at Arkham Asylum.

Someone seems to have it in for Gordon—first he was basically handed over to armed assailants inside the precinct, and now this. Is this all part of the larger conspiracy hinted at in the last episode? Who is behind all of this? How and when will Gordon get his old job back? Or will he find a way to use this new position to investigate what’s really going on in Gotham?

On tonight’s episode, “Rogues’ Gallery,” a guard is murdered at Arkham Asylum as Det. Gordon begins his assignment there. Meanwhile, Cobblepot continues to build his army. Morena Baccarin, Drew Powell, Allyce Beasley, David Zayas, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Christopher Heyerdahl, & Kyle Massey guest star.

See if Det. Gordon can solve the guard’s murder tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording State of Affairs, Sleepy Hollow, and Major Crimes.
