Last week was the exciting season premiere of Blue Bloods, but it seemed like there was conflict all over the place within the family. Not only were Jamie and Frank still at odds about Jamie and Eddie choosing to continue to ride together after getting engaged, but Erin got a promotion at work (taking over Monica’s position after Monica was killed last season), and she was very hesitant about showing any sort of favoritism toward Danny and Jamie when they came to her for help. Then of course there was drug cartel member Louis Delgado (played by one of my favorites, Lou Diamond Phillips), who we know was responsible for burning down Danny’s house – and maybe, just maybe, for somehow causing Linda’s helicopter to crash?! Danny was so gung-ho about taking Delgado down after working a case where the victim’s head was cut off that he basically set the guy up to be killed himself by making it seem like Delgado was in bed with the cops. Ouch.

I was glad to see things calm down a little between Jamie and Frank at the end. Both Jamie and Frank had to realize that Frank was so against it because he just wants his kids to be safe. He’s already lost one son on the job. The thought that Jamie partnering with Eddie now that they’re engaged could make him a little distracted and could get him killed really had Frank worried. In the end, though, Eddie talked to Jamie about not being partners because they were now partners off the job, and she didn’t want it to come between him and his dad. And really, it’s all moot now anyway because we finally found out the results of the sergeant’s exam, and while Jamie said Eddie did fine, it was Jamie himself who got the top spot in the results! He did end up taking it without telling Frank (or us), and now we’re going to have Sergeant Jamie Reagan. That should be fun… It’ll be interesting to see how they’ll work the Jamie/Eddie scenes in now that they won’t be riding together!

On tonight’s episode, “Meet the New Boss,” Gormley looks to Danny and Baez for help tracking down a former NYPD detective he believes may be a threat to Frank’s safety. Also, Erin navigates office politics when she chooses to reopen a closed case; Jamie and Eddie are transferred to a new precinct with a lot of problems; and Frank and Baker team up to investigate a complaint about an SVU detective. Bebe Neuwirth guest stars.

See how they keep Frank safe tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, MacGyver, The Cool Kids, Child Support, Hawaii Five-0, & Hell’s Kitchen.

Friday night is finally here, and I am so excited I could burst! Tonight my television will be tuned into CBS all night for three of my favorite shows: MacGyver, Hawaii Five-0, and Blue Bloods. First up, let’s discuss MacGyver.

Last season we left off with Mac learning that his dad was actually Overwatch and had been in charge of him all along. This didn’t make him overly happy. He was incredibly upset that Maddy had lied to him and that his father had been hiding in plain sight this whole time. After saving the day together, Mac decided he could no longer work for his dad or Maddy because he didn’t trust them. I understand where he’s coming from because how could you just move on after learning that your father had basically been controlling your future your whole life from the shadows? Hopefully Mac will decide to come back to Phoenix, because obviously nothing will be the same without him.

On tonight’s premiere, “Improvise,” three months after quitting the Phoenix Foundation and moving to Nigeria, Mac puts aside his differences with his father and returns when he hears Jack is the target of a murderous dictator he double-crossed.

To see how this homecoming goes, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’m sad that it’s the season finale for MacGyver, because my Friday nights are better because of this show. Last week’s episode had Mac and Riley going to Area 51 to deal with an unidentified weapon that was found in the desert. After some intense investigation and gunfights with the men who were looking for the weapon, they managed to save the day and keep the weapon out of enemy hands. In this episode, Riley also used the security clearance that she was given for this case to look up the files about Mac’s father that Matty had and gave him the USB drive with the information to look at if he sees fit. I’m very anxious to hopefully finally learn what Matty has to do with Mac’s father.

On tonight’s episode, “MacGyver + MacGyver,” MacGyver gets a shocking surprise when he tries to tell Matty that he’s quitting the Phoenix Foundation. Tate Donovan guest stars.

To find out if Macgyver actually quits, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five-0, MasterChef: Junior, and Blindspot.

Last week’s Blindspot seemed to be a turning point in the new “relationship” Roman had with Jane and the FBI to take down Crawford. Jane, Weller, & Zapata were attending a gala hosted by Crawford and Blake. Avery left the van and sneaked in to confront Crawford. They were able to get her out of there without alerting Crawford as to who they really were, and Roman explained how he would turn off the security that would then allow their cameras to record the meeting Crawford was going to have with a big bad guy, which should allow them to get him. Unfortunately, after Blake gave him a heartfelt speech about love and family, Roman changed his mind and raced into the meeting to turn back on the security and tell Crawford the FBI was on its way. In the jet after Crawford, Blake, Roman, and Crawford’s attorney escaped the gala ahead of the FBI raid, Crawford gave his own heartfelt speech about family, etc. The attorney then brought up the question of how Roman knew. He sidestepped the issue, but Crawford seemed suspicious. He mentioned the task he’d set “Tom” on, killing the FBI team, and this time, Roman seemed to do what he was asked to do. He contacted someone (multiple someones, it seems) and now Jane, Weller, and the others are in immediate danger. Eek!

We’re coming up on the end of the season. Only five more episodes, including tonight’s. NBC has yet to renew it, so either they need to wrap the Crawford/Roman story line up in these five episodes or we’ll be left with a huge cliffhanger at the end of the season. I’ll be very unhappy if that happens and the show isn’t renewed!

On tonight’s episode, “Clamorous Night,” the team faces a deadly threat on all of their lives. Roman’s allegiances are tested.

See if everyone makes it out alive tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MacGyver, Hawaii Five-0, & MasterChef: Junior.

Danger Will Robinson! Early this morning, Netflix released the first season of a new reboot of the sci-fi series Lost in Space, which updates and modifies some things from the classic 1965 series. The Robinson family — Marine John Robinson (Toby Stephens, Black Sails), his wife aerospace engineer Maureen (Molly Parker, House of Cards, Deadwood), and their three children, Judy (Taylor Russell, Falling Skies), Penny (Mina Sundwall, Freeheld), and Will (Maxwell Jenkins, Sense8) — is part of the 24th colonist group, which has left Earth in search of a better life on a new planet. They are aboard the Resolute space station, when they are forced to evacuate. Their Jupiter 2 escape ship crash lands on a mysterious planet. Everyone in the family has gone through rigorous training for this mission, and each brings some sort of skill to the table, but are they really prepared for what lies ahead?

Immediately upon their arrival, the Robinsons face one danger after the next, until Will befriends a strange robot with special abilities. Meanwhile, another Jupiter ship also crash lands on the planet. This one containing a roughneck/smuggler named Don West (Ignacio Serricchino, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Bones), and a mysterious woman secretly assuming the stolen identity of Dr. Smith (Parker Posey, Search Party). It is only a matter of time until this ragtag group will eventually come together and must work together in order to survive their new environment. But who can really be trusted? Everyone seems to have secrets they are hiding from one another, including the robot!

As the series opens, viewers are immediately thrust into the thick of the action as the Robinsons struggle to survive their harsh new environment. Through flashbacks, the series slowly reveals the characters’ backstories and pieces together the events that ultimately led up to the Robinsons’ crash onto this unknown planet. Where are they? How did they end up here? Who is “Dr. Smith”? Where did the robot come from? And what happened on the Resolute that caused the crash? The first two episodes of the series have some really tense moments and unexpected twists. I look forward to seeing what other turns of events, mysteries, and adventures await in the rest of the 10-episode first season!
