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.

It has been a very tumultuous season on Hell’s Kitchen. Having all these All-Stars come back and compete against each other was a brilliant idea. I was sad to see Robyn go last week because I love her craziness, but I’m hoping that Michelle can win the season in the end.

On tonight’s episode, “Families Come to Hell,” when the families come to visit, the four remaining All-Stars are feeling extra-motivated to succeed. For this week’s challenge, the chefs must choose a gift, each of which contains a secret ingredient on which they must base their dish. They will then anonymously serve their dishes to each family, and whoever gets the most votes wins a day in Malibu with Chef Ramsay and his/her family. Then, actresses Gabrielle Dennis and Anna Konkle join dinner service, during which each contestant will have the opportunity to run the kitchen but will be tested, as certain dishes will have the wrong ingredient.

Find out who makes it to the top three tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Taken and Blindspot.

Tonight The CW sees the return of musical comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. As the second season came to a close, Rebecca and Josh were preparing for their wedding, though it was Rebecca who was doing most of the planning. Rebecca’s father returned, but instead of giving her the nod of approval she always yearned for, he was just there to ask for money. Meanwhile, Josh started to have doubts and ultimately decided to call off the wedding. He then made the extreme choice to become a priest. Rebecca, distraught from this news, was about to jump off a cliff when Paula talked her down. Now the only thing on Rebecca’s mind is getting revenge on Josh Chan.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend can be soapy, campy, and over-the-top, but that’s what makes it so much fun – along with the hilarious musical numbers in each episode. I’m really looking forward to tonight’s premiere to see what Rebecca has in store for her revenge plan. Will Josh really become a priest? Will Rebecca finally move on and find someone else to obsess about? What other crazy situations will these people get up to? And what kind of extremely inappropriate song topics/lyrics can we look forward to this season?

On tonight’s premiere, “Josh’s Ex-Girlfriend Wants Revenge,” Rebecca plots revenge against Josh after he abandoned her at the altar. Meanwhile, White Josh and Darryl work on some problems; and Paula and Scott confront some unusual issues in their marriage.

Catch up with Rebecca and her friends tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Inhumans, Jane the Virgin, Room 104, and Mike Judge Presents: Tales From the Tour Bus.

Tonight, NBC launches Powerless, the first sitcom to be set in the DC Comics universe. Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens, High School Musical) is a bright-eyed young woman who is sick of her boring job in the suburbs and decides to move to Charm City to work for Wayne Security as the new Director of Research and Development. Her new boss is Van Wayne (Alan Tudyk, Firefly), the black sheep of his family, who just wants to be noticed by his famous cousin Bruce and to run the family business in Gotham City. Wayne Security creates products to help regular human beings protect themselves from all the crossfire damage caused by battles between super heroes and supervillains. The business has been failing due to a lack of innovation, so Emily was brought in to hopefully inspire and motivate the staff — Chief Design Officer Teddy (Danny Pudi, Community), Lead Software Engineer Wendy (Jennie Pierson, Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23), Head of Engineering/Chief of Childlike Wonder Ron (Ron Funches, Undateable), and Van’s disillusioned assistant Jackie (Christina Kirk, A to Z).

I had been really excited for this series ever since it was first announced last summer. At the time, the series was to be an office comedy about an insurance company that dealt with the damage left behind by superheroes. Shortly after San Diego Comic-Con, the series got a new showrunner and the premise was changed somewhat. I was a little concerned at first, but I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere. The series reminds me a lot of Better Off Ted with the office politics and crazy lab workers. It’s got some great office humor but also has a lot of fun with the tropes you see in superhero shows, movies, and comics. There are already so many superhero shows on TV these days, but this is a fun new take on the genre that’s worth checking out!

While the premise of the series has changed slightly since the original pilot, the cast hasn’t, and you can find my fun video interviews with the cast from Comic-Con at NoReruns.net (http://www.noreruns.net/2016/08/18/powerless-press-room-san-diego-comic-con-2016/).

On tonight’s premiere, “Wayne or Lose,” a woman begins her new job with a company specializing in products that make everyday citizens feel safer around damage caused by super heroes and villains that live among them.

Check out the different take on the comic-book world tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, Superior Donuts, Life in Pieces, Training Day, Superstore, The Blacklist, My Kitchen Rules, Riverdale, Top Chef, and Colony.

hawaiifiveo422smallThere were two main story lines on last week’s Hawaii Five-0. The main case dealt with a stolen…well, basically Iron Man suit. It was virtually indestructible. After some legwork, the team was able to find a woman who was involved with the heist – the thief was after a gun she had as evidence – and she told them where she was supposed to meet the thief to give him the gun. Of course he showed up in the suit of armor, which meant any bullets they shot, even Kono on the sniper rifle, wouldn’t hurt him. So Steve let him go and then rammed into the SUV he was driving with one of the police SUVs. That did it.

The other story was Jerry and his crazy beautiful sister, who breezed into town, saying she wanted to say hi to her brother. It turned out that she had hooked up with an animal-rescue organization and was there to free a circus elephant. Unfortunately, when she was loading it into the truck they had, a car alarm went off and scared it, and it took off in a rampage. Although it did some damage, no one was killed, and she was able to recapture it and keep it someplace safe. With Jerry’s help, along with Kamekona & Max, they were able to get the animal safely on its way away from Hawaii. Steve knew Jerry was involved and needled him about it, but Jerry didn’t get it trouble because of it.

I love this show. It’s so much fun because of the stories and the characters. And this week is going to involve one of my favorite characters – Adam Noshimuri, Kono’s husband. He’s in prison after killing one of the men who had kidnapped him and might have killed him. He could have gotten away with it, but he’s such a good man that he turned himself in to the police. Kono is worried, though, because she just found out from someone else that the current big-bad, Gabriel Waincroft, visited Adam in prison and offered him a job. Adam said he didn’t take it, but since he didn’t tell Kono about Gabriel himself, she’s worried he isn’t telling her the whole truth. Given the description for tonight’s episode, I’m guessing he wasn’t.

On tonight’s episode, “Ka Pono Ku’oko’a (The Cost of Freedom),” Five-0 goes on a manhunt when a deliberate chemical spill enables six dangerous inmates to escape, including Kono’s husband, Adam. Randy Couture guest stars as serial arsonist Jason Duclair.

Find out why Adam runs tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, Grimm, Hell’s Kitchen, & Motive.
