Tonight, FOX kicks off the new family adventure series, The Gifted, which is set in the Marvel universe of The X-Men. Reed Strucker (Stephen Moyer, Shots Fired, True Blood), the tough district attorney in charge of prosecuting crimes committed by mutants, suddenly finds himself on the other side of the law when his teenage children, Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind, The Goldbergs, Gotham) and Andy (Percy Hynes White, Night at the Museum 3) discover they have mutant powers. Reed and separated wife/nurse Caitlin (Amy Acker, Person of Interest, Angel) take their kids on the run, where they encounter the mutant underground, led by John Proudstar/Thunderbird (Blair Redford, Satisfaction). The other mutants include Marcos Diaz/Eclipse (Sean Teale, Reign), who uses his powers to help smuggle mutants into Mexico; Clarice Fong/Blink (Jamie Chung, Gotham), who has the ability to teleport; and Lorna Dane/Polaris (Emma Dumont, Aquarius), who has magnetic abilities (wonder who she could be related to!). The series also stars Coby Bell (Burn Notice) as a man who struggles with the cold-blooded requirements of his job of rounding up the mutants.

This is one of the few new fall shows I haven’t had a chance to check out, but at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, I got to talk with some of the cast about the series, and they got me really excited to check out tonight’s premiere. (You can find the videos from those interviews at NoReruns.net) The series is written by Matt Nix (APB, Burn Notice), the pilot was directed by Bryan Singer — who also directed several of the X-Men films — and the executive producers include Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb, and Jim Chory, all of whom have had extensive experience with other Marvel TV shows and X-Men films. So there is a lot of great talent both in front of and behind the camera for this series, which makes it very promising. Also, FX recently did an excellent job with its X-Men universe series Legion, so I’m hoping for more of the same with FOX.

On tonight’s premiere, “eXposed,” a suburban couple’s lives are rocked by the discovery that their children possess mutant powers, forcing the family to go on the lam from a hostile government and seek help from an underground network of mutants.

Meet the newest mutants tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Good Doctor, The Big Bang Theory, 9JKL, Me, Myself & I, and Lucifer.

Lucifer has been heating up episode by episode, and it’s all about to come to a head. Last week’s episode, we watched Maze and Lucifer fight it out about how Lucifer has not been honest with Maze concerning the reasons behind him trying to get back to heaven. Maze was hurt because Lucifer didn’t come to her with the plan and her part in it. They fought in the streets, and both of them ended up pretty banged up.

Also in the episode, Charlotte was slowly coming unraveled, quite literally, where light was spewing out of her body. She accidentally killed someone when he stabbed her and the light came pouring out. Hopefully, her sons can get her under control before she kills anyone else.

On tonight’s season finale, “The Good, The Bad, and the Crispy,” after Charlotte accidentally charbroils a man to death in self-defense, Lucifer must try and keep Chloe from figuring out the truth. Lucifer puts Maze in charge of finding Charlotte and Amenadiel, who have both gone missing in light of recent circumstances, while he finds a permanent solution for the ticking time bomb he calls Mom.

To see how Lucifer deals with his mother, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Still Star-Crossed.

Last week on Better Call Saul, we got the genesis of one of Breaking Bad’s key relationships – Mike met Gus Fring! Gus didn’t want Mike to kill Hector Salamanca but said he was free to mess with him all he wanted. So Mike hatched a clever plan involving sneakers and a rifle to make sure there was drug residue on the outside of Salamanca’s delivery truck when it tried to cross the border. Meanwhile, the police showed up at Chuck’s to arrest Jimmy, and one of his former public defender coworkers gave Jimmy a hard time when he saw him in the holding cell. Jimmy made bail and, despite Kim’s protests, decided he wanted to defend himself.

I like how the series is quickly moving toward Breaking Bad, setting up the pieces and the relationships that were in place when that show began. Can Jimmy get himself cleared of the charges levied by Chuck? If not, is this what is going to ultimately lead him to become Saul Goodman? What is Salamanca going to do in response to Mike’s actions? And how close are we to learning how he became the wheelchair-bound, mute, bell-ringing guy we saw at the start of Breaking Bad?

On tonight’s episode, “Sabrosito,” Jimmy calls in a favor from Mike. Meanwhile, new complications disrupt the Salamancas’s business; and Chuck and Jimmy struggle to compromise.

Find out what favor Jimmy calls in tonight on AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Quantico, Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, The Great Indoors, Gotham, Supergirl, Jane the Virgin, Young & Hungry, Baby Daddy, and Angie Tribeca.

Last week, Lucifer made me cry because Lucifer realized his feelings for Chloe are real and she was very interested. Then they solved an intense case involving poisoning and a poison that essentially boils people from the inside out. Unfortunately, even though they stopped the guy responsible, somehow Chloe ended up infected at the end. I’m not sure how they’re going to save her now that the doctor who created it died during Chloe’s trying to capture him. It’s going to make me incredibly upset if they don’t let these two finally be together without some huge disaster happening for at least a few weeks. Although knowing television, it’s all going to tumble down sooner than later.

On tonight’s winter finale, “A Good Day to Die,” Lucifer must find the antidote to the Professor’s poison, so he travels to hell to find the Professor’s soul. While he’s there, he is forced to confront his guilt about Uriel’s death. Mom heads to hell to get Lucifer back, but Lucifer still feels betrayed by his parents because of something he discovers.

Find out if Lucifer can get the antidote before it’s too late tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Timeless and Beyond.

supergirl1128smallTonight, The CW kicks off its epic four-night “Heroes v Aliens” crossover event, beginning with Supergirl. Last week, Mon-El had been abducted by Lillian Luthor, and when Kara tried to save him, she was confronted by the real Hank, who had been turned into a cyborg by CADMUS. In her efforts to save Mon-El, Kara lost her powers. Lillian utilized this opportunity to collect a sample of Kara’s blood and then took off, leaving Kara and Mon-El in their cells to die. However, Jeremiah Danvers made a surprise re-appearance just in time to rescue them. Meanwhile, Guardian was being blamed for evil happenings in the city, and James had to clear his alter-ego’s name; and J’onn discovered that M’gann was really a White Martian (the Green Martians have a longstanding feud with the White Martians) and that the blood she transfused into him will eventually transform him into a White Martian as well.

What does Lillian plan to do with Kara’s blood? How will becoming a White Martian change J’onn, and is it too late to stop the process? I’m really excited for this week’s massive 4-series crossover. These crossovers are the main reason why I’m still watching all of these series. In the past we’ve seen Supergirl interact with Barry, but that was in Earth 3, so I’m curious to see how her world will collide with the other series. I’m also interested in what this “Heroes v Aliens” title means, especially given that Kara is herself an alien. The action starts tonight and then continues the following three nights with The Flash, Arrow, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

On tonight’s Supergirl midseason finale/crossover premiere, “Medusa,” a superhero crossover event begins with Barry Allen and Cisco Ramon from The Flash seeking Kara’s help with an alien invasion; at the same time, Eliza comes to town to celebrate Thanksgiving with her daughters, which seems like the perfect opportunity for Alex to come out to her mother. Meanwhile, Winn and James consider telling Kara the truth about the Guardian; and Kara wants to team up with Lena Luthor to combat a deadly virus unleashed by CADMUS.

Check out the start of the crossover event tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Timeless, Gotham, Lucifer, Jane the Virgin, and People of Earth.
