Jenny’s Choice #1

There are so many things on tonight that I want to recommend that I had trouble even narrowing it down to two… So I picked the two that I’m most excited about or knew I’d enjoy the most. First up is the double episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. This show always, ALWAYS makes me laugh. Last week, we first got to see the Nine-Nine go to Cop-Con, which was pretty much what it sounded like: Comic-Con for cops, with presentations, gadgets, etc, all geared toward law enforcement. The group has always used the time to party and let off some steam, but this year, Captain Holt asked them to be on their best behavior since he was trying for a position on some board of law enforcement officers. So the team decided they’d still party (even opting to host it themselves when the group who usually threw the big party was arrested! LOL), but they’d do it on the down-low. Unfortunately, things didn’t go quite as planned. Holt’s laptop was stolen by his biggest rival and his presentation messed with – surprise, surprise!

Then on the second episode, Amy was studying for the Sergeant’s exam, but as always, she was obsessing and freaking out…so much so that she was ready to quit. I loved how Jake tracked her down by getting into her shoes, prompted by Rosa. When he finally cornered her on the rooftop from “The Bet,” she admitted that she was worried because their relationship might change. Jake was very sweet and said even if it did, they’d get through it. And there was also some great stuff with Capt. Holt and Terry, basically competing to see who could build the “best” model train set – best being the operative word. Capt. Holt thought the best one was accurate down to the most minute detail, while Terry let his imagination fly. It was pretty funny to see the little boy come in and scoff at both, asking where the video games were. As the mother of a young man who was a little boy not so long ago, I can totally relate!

I’ve seen tonight’s double episode, and I have to say they’re some of my favorites in a while. For one, we meet Capt. Holt’s mother. Yes, you read that right: WE MEET HIS MOTHER, who is basically a slightly older, slightly more feminine version of Capt. Holt himself. LMAO And second, we get more Jake/Rosa stuff, which is always fun. Finally, we see something we’ve never seen before when Scully and Hitchcock are not only at odds but almost knock-down-drag-out fighting. Fun!

On tonight’s double episode, “Your Honor/The Slaughterhouse,” Captain Holt’s mom (guest star L. Scott Caldwell) seeks support from the precinct after her house is robbed. Meanwhile, Terry, Rosa and Boyle remodel the breakroom and Amy teaches Gina how to change her own car tire. Then, Jake and Rosa try to earn the respect of their idol, Lieutenant Melanie Hawkins (guest star Gina Gershon), while Charles, Terry and Gina test different parenting methods to resolve a conflict between Scully and Hitchcock.

Meet Mrs. Holt tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

Sometimes, there are no words for how much sheer joy television brings us viewers. Fans of Gilmore Girls were certainly that happy when they learned the show was returning. For me? I’m not sure I’ve ever been as happy as I was when I learned they were bringing Prison Break back from the dead, even if it is just a short 9-episode season! I was SO SAD when the series ended after only four seasons, especially with how they left the group from Fox River… Michael was killed, and Sara was pregnant… I mean, come on!

Wait. Michael’s dead? Maybe, maybe not. 😉 I mean, it wouldn’t be Prison Break without Michael Scofield, right? I love that all our favorite characters are back: Michael, Lincoln, Sara, Sucre, T-Bag, C-Note, Paul Kellerman… I really am on the edge of my seat, hoping things will work out with Michael and Sara, since Mark Feuerstein (Royal Pains) is also on the show as Sara’s HUSBAND! What the what??

Kyle got to talk to some of the cast in the press room at SDCC this past summer. Check it out here on NoReruns.net

On tonight’s episode, “Ogygia,” it’s been seven years since Michael was presumed dead, but when clues suggest that he might still be alive, his brother Lincoln reunites with Sara to help track down the truth. The path leads Lincoln to Yemen, as Sucre, T-Bag, and C-Note are pulled back into the action to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever.

See what clues lead Lincoln to believe Michael’s alive tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, NCIS, American Housewife, Trial & Error, Imaginary Mary, Chicago Fire, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

gameofsilence412smallTonight is the series premiere of Game of Silence on NBC on a special premiere night. The show follows best friends who have a dark secret they thought was buried 25 years ago, but they soon discover that you can’t run from your past for long. Jackson Brooks is a successful attorney who seems to have it all. He’s engaged to his boss, Marina, and he’s on the fast track to becoming partner at his firm, but his world is turned upside down when his long-lost childhood friends unexpectedly reappear after 25 years. An incident from their past is coming back to complicate all of their lives, so now they need to work together to overcome the issues.

It’s getting mixed reviews, but I’m an optimist and willing to give it the benefit of the doubt for the first few episodes at least. There’s always time for a new drama to spice up the TV schedule.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Jackson Brooks has it all – a gorgeous fiancée, a beautiful house, and a red-hot legal career. However, when his childhood friends reappear one day seeking his help to avenge a 25-year-old wrong, his perfect life is turned upside down. With the news that their friend Boots has been murdered, they are forced to confront a terrible secret from their past.

Find out if this drama is going to be on your must-watch list tonight at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..

izombie69smallTonight, the first season of iZombie comes to a close. Last week, Liv entered her apartment to discover that Sebastian, the guy she infected, was inside and trying to attack Peyton. She went into full zombie mode and killed Sebastian. Afterwards, she explained the truth of her condition to Peyton, who fled the apartment as quickly as possible. Meanwhile, Major continued to pursue his zombie theory — he purchased some black-market weapons and brushed up on zombie-killing techniques via YouTube. He pretended to be a health inspector in order to get a closer look at Meat Cute, but Blaine soon discovered who he really was and tied him up in the back. Soon afterwards, Major heard Liv’s teenage brother in the front of the shop being offered a job by Blaine.

What are Blaine’s plans for Liv’s brother and Major? Will he turn them, kill them, or will they manage to escape? And will either of them learn the truth about Liv’s condition? It was great to finally see Peyton and Liv bonding so well this week — I really hope Peyton isn’t gone for good, although I don’t really blame her for not wanting to live with a zombie! I’m looking forward to seeing what tonight’s fun and exciting finale has in store!

On tonight’s episode, “Blaine’s World,” season 1 ends with Liv and Clive discovering new evidence in the Max Rager case. They then pay a visit to Vaughn Du Clark at Max Rager headquarters. Meanwhile, Ravi continues his search for a cure; Blaine makes Liv an offer she can’t refuse; and Major gets involved in an unbelievable situation.

See what offer Blaine makes and what Major gets involved in tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording I Can Do That, Stitchers, Younger, Your Family or Mine, Chrisley Knows Best, and Royal Pains.

izombiesmallAnyone who knows me knows I’m a huge Veronica Mars fan, so when I learned that Rob Thomas had created a new show called iZombie, I was in, regardless of the subject matter. Thankfully, the story itself seems like it’ll be a lot of fun. Rose McIver stars as Olivia “Liv” Moore (*snicker* Live more?), a medical resident who was suddenly turned into a zombie. She transfers to the city morgue for the easy access to brains, breaks things off with her soul mate (played by the sexy Robert Buckley from One Tree Hill), and tries to “live” her life as best she can. Then she figures out that with every brain she eats, she gets “visions,” which turn out to be the corpse’s memories, so with the encouragement of her boss, she works with a newbie homicide detective, using those “visions” to help solve the murders of those people whose brains she consumed.

Sounds fun, right? I hope so… I’m not a huge fan of shows on The CW. The only ones I watch every episode of are Whose Line Is It Anyway and Penn & Teller: Fool Us—I haven’t watched a non-reality show on The CW since One Tree Hill. So I’m *hoping* I like this one enough to stick with it. If anyone can make me do that, it’s Rob Thomas. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that Robert Buckley and David Anders (who will always be Julian Stark from Alias to me) are on the show as well. Hellooooo, eye candy! 😉 I really love them both in everything I’ve seen them in, so…) Also starring are Aly Michalka, Malcolm Goodwin, Molly Hagan, & Rahul Kohli.

Kyle did a press room interview for the show, which you can view on his site, NoReruns.net.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” an overachieving medical resident who recently became a zombie transfers her residency to the city morgue, where she feeds on brains, but every time she does, she experiences some of the corpse’s memories, sometimes providing clues to how they died.

Meet a new kind of zombies tonight on The CW at 9/8c.
