From 2002-2007, the Disney Channel animated action comedy-adventure series Kim Possible followed the adventures of teenage crime fighter Kim Possible, who balanced saving the world with dealing with the normal problems of a high school student. Helping her on her missions was clumsy best friend Ron Stoppable and his pet naked mole rat Rufus. Providing them with remote technical assistance was 10-year old computer genius Wade. While Team Possible came up against many different criminals, their biggest foe was super-villain Dr. Drakken and his sidekick Shego (who was often the more grounded and sensible of the pair).

Tonight, these characters return in a brand new live-action Disney Channel Original Movie, Kim Possible. In the film, Kim (Sadie Stanley) and Ron (Sean Giambrone, The Goldbergs) enter high school and become friends with Athena (Ciara Riley Wilson, OMG!). With Kim’s guidance, Athena transforms into the newest member of Team Possible and soon starts to eclipse Kim. When Drakken (Todd Stashwick, 12 Monkeys) and Shego (Taylor Ortega) resurface in Middleton, the team must stop them. The movie also stars Issac Ryan Brown (Raven’s Home) as Wade, Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother) as Kim’s mother Dr. Ann Possible, Patton Oswalt (A.P. Bio) as Professor Dementor, and Christy Carlson Romano (the original voice of Kim) as Poppy Blu.

I was a huge fan of the original animated series and can’t wait to check out tonight’s film to see how these characters translate into the real world.

Go back to your childhood (or in Jenny’s case, her son’s childhood…she sighed sadly…) tonight on Disney Channel at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Doom Patrol, The Umbrella Academy, Fresh Off the Boat, Proven Innocent, and Strike Back.

I love the dynamic on MacGyver, and given the widespread news that Jack is leaving after tonight’s episode, that’s about to change. Hopefully the rest of the team can help fill in the obvious void that is going to be left, but it is bound to take some adjustment. It is unfortunate that George Eads had personal issues behind the scenes that led to this change, but I have faith the rest of the cast will pull through regardless.

On tonight’s episode, “Father + Bride + Betrayal,” an international crime boss offers Matty a deal she can’t refuse: he’ll surrender himself into her custody if he’s allowed to return to the United States to watch his daughter walk down the aisle. MacGyver and team crash the wedding to ensure the crime lord doesn’t run, only to discover they’re not the only ones lying in wait at the event.

To watch this pivotal episode, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, Hell’s Kitchen, and Blue Bloods.

Last year, I raved about how Future Man was a possible successor to Rick and Morty for scifi comedy. I didn’t expect a second season, but last night at 3AM/2AMc, Hulu dropped a full second season for our binging excitement! The delightful oddity that is Future Man features geeky Josh Futterman as a chosen warrior destined to save earth from the evil Bionics that his boss Dr. Kronish was destined to create. Josh was recruited to perform this task by two time traveling warriors from the future: Tiger and Wolf. Their wild time traveling meandering eventually brought them to a second timeline in which Josh was a douchebro who legally changed his name to Joosh. After accidentally killing him, Josh assumed his place. Without any other ideas on how to beat Kronish, they decided to try to beat the video game again, the game that started it all in the pilot. Josh beat the game, and at the start of last year’s finale, two more warriors come through from the future: Owl & Dingo.

We soon discovered most of their tribe of warriors also got wiped out. There was some initial tension between the two timelines, and they resolved that with an orgy. Soon after, they were plotting a way to work together to infiltrate Kronish’s building. Once they had started though, Tiger adjusted the plan to save a child. Dingo discovered that Tiger traveled back to the 1940s and raised Kronish. She was betrayed and instantly attacked Tiger. Because Owl’s brain started to crap out from some weird future STD, Josh volunteered for a suicide run that would guarantee Kronish was finally killed. Josh confronted Kronish in his office. When he was convinced that he must die, the doctor eventually did himself in with a combination of 100 virulent diseases in a hypodermic. Owl regained control of his brain long enough to help Josh get out alive, but all future people died in the process. Josh got out and took all the credit, eventually seen in an asylum one year “later.” In the closing seconds, his cell crackled with the familiar electricity that preceded a time traveler.

So here we go. Time to binge all of Future Man season two NOW on Hulu!

Early this morning, Netflix gave its viewers an early holiday treat…more of the hilarious baking competition Nailed It!. This new program, Nailed It! Holiday, has all the fun of the regular series but with holiday-themed tasks. I absolutely loved the first season of this series. Host Nicole Byer is a riot as she jokes around with the contestants and keeps things light. She often breaks the fourth wall, talking to the producer and teasing her more straight-laced co-host, professional chef Jacques Torres. The series pits amateur bakers against one another in a competition to win $10K. They are given far too little time to try to recreate ridiculously intricate desserts and more often than not fail to nail it! But watching them try to do so is so much fun. I can wait to see what new celebrity guest judges and holiday-themed challenges are in store!

Check it out now on Netflix!

I’ll also be watching/recording Fresh Off the Boat and The Cool Kids.

MacGyver was very interesting last week watching Murdoc and Mac work together to save Murdoc’s son. Of course, Mac wasn’t doing it by choice but because Murdoc had kidnapped his girlfriend and was holding her hostage until he got his son back. We got a detailed look into Murdoc’s past when we met his ex-wife, who turned out to be working with the man who kidnapped her and Murdoc’s son. In the end, Murdoc realized that his son would be safer without him, so he agreed to go into prison if Mac put his son into protective custody. I think this situation also showed Mac how dangerous it may be for him to have a girlfriend in the line of work he’s in, but I hope he gets over his fears, because he deserves happiness as well.

On tonight’s episode, “Scavengers + Hard Drive + Dragonfly,” Matty sends MacGyver and team to Ghana to recover a hard drive from an e-waste landfill that is run by a powerful and violent man. But when Matty refuses to reveal what’s on the drive, other than a mysterious file called “Dragonfly,” the team speculates about what could be so important to her.

To find out what Matty is hiding, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, Hell’s Kitchen, Blindspot, and The Cool Kids.
