Tonight is the series premiere of The Code on CBS. Half drama, half procedural, this new legal thriller is about the active-duty Marines who are also attorneys working out of the Judge Advocate General Headquarters in Quantico. They are trained as a prosecutor, a defense lawyer, and an investigator and choose to serve their country in pursuit of military justice at home and overseas. Luke Mitchell (Blindspot, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Tomorrow People) stars as Captain John “Abe” Abraham, a driven prosecutor who comes from a family of Marines. Anna Wood (Falling Water, Deception, Reckless) plays his colleague and friend, Captain Maya Dobbins, the lead defense attorney not afraid to go up against one of her own but also a team player if the situation calls for it. Ato Essandoh (Chicago Med, Altered Carbon, Blue Bloods, Copper) plays Major Trey Ferry, Abe’s superior officer and friend. One of my favorite actresses, Dana Delaney (Hand of God, Body of Proof, Desperate Housewives) stars as commanding officer Colonel Glenn Turnbull, one of the highest-ranking female officers in the Judge Advocate Corps. She’s tough but fair and demands an excellence in herself and her staff. And finally, assisting the team is Lt. Harper Li (played by Phillipa Soo, Smash), a highly capable lawyer who is eager to take on bigger cases, and tech-savvy, efficient Warrant Officer Rami Ahmadi (played by Raffi Barsoumian, The Vampire Diaries), the Marine equivalent of a paralegal.

I’ve seen the first episode quite enjoyed it. It’s a bit too much drama for me, but I love the cast so much (Besides the ever delightful Delany, I loved Mitchell on Blindspot, Wood on Reckless, & Essandoh on Chicago Med & Blue Bloods) and the military and procedural aspects of it that I’m in for at least a few more episodes.

On tonight’s episode, “Blowed Up,” when a soldier in Afghanistan murders his commanding officer, Capt. John “Abe” Abraham and Capt. Maya Dobbins, working out of the Judge Advocate General Headquarters in Quantico, Va., are assigned to the case as prosecution and defense lawyers.

Meet TV’s newest attorneys tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

Last week on SEAL Team, Bravo headed to the Afghan side of the Afghanistan/Iran border in order to take out the financier/mastermind behind several terrorist attacks, who was going to be in a little “town” just on the other side of the border. It was supposed to be a quick in/quick out visit for the team, with no one laying eyes on them, because they didn’t have permission to be in Iran and certainly didn’t get permission from the Iranians to kill a man in their country. It was quite a dangerous situation to be in, and unfortunately, two kids from Iran were flying a kite that went down right on top of Jason and Ray, and they were spotted. Ray took the shot just after the kids made it back to the town and notified the men there, and our guys came under fire. They were able to fight back until our waiting Marines from inside Afghanistan came to the rescue, laying down fire so our guys could load up on the waiting transport, and everyone got out safely. Unfortunately, we learned then that Ray just clipped the guy he had taken the shot at and the guy was still alive. That was a blow to both Ray, who is having a crisis of faith, and to Clay, who believed he should have been the one to take the shot.

Ray’s not doing so well lately. He’s taking something (Pain pills? Depression meds? I don’t know…), and he’s going to the bar instead of being home with Naima and the kids. I’m not really liking his character at the moment. So we’ll see where things go with him. And now Davis has told the others about OCS… She has their support, but I’m worried. Is she leaving the show?! I haven’t heard anything about that, but since she said that was her last mission with the team… It’ll be interesting to see how that story line goes! And Jason met up with Adam’s wife/widow, Victoria, at the store, and she basically asked him out to dinner. Unfortunately, at dinner, he admitted that he can’t see her right now as anything but Adam’s wife, letting her know things wouldn’t be going further for them (for now…). He then went to the bar and found a woman who’d come on to him previously, and they went back to the back and had sex. He needs to get back out there, but I don’t like that that’s how he did it. LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Dirt, Dirt, Gucci,” as Bravo Team prepares for what they expect to be a “cushy” deployment with the luxury of staying in a hotel in the Philippines, Jason tries to find a way to pay for Emma’s college.

See if the deployment’s as “cushy” as the team thinks it will be tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chicago Med, The Goldbergs, Battle of the Ages, Schooled, Chicago Fire, Dinner Takes All, Gone, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Single Parents, Chicago PD, & Whiskey Cavalier.

Tonight, USA Network kicks off the new reality series Growing Up Chrisley. This spin-off finds two of the Chrisley children heading from Nashville to L.A. to try to launch their own careers. Todd had been trying to get Chase and Savannah to follow in his footsteps in the real estate business, but neither of them is interested. Chase wants to pursue a career in acting, while Savannah wants to launch her own cosmetic and fragrance line.

The new series feels very much like the original – tonight’s premiere is pretty much a normal episode of Chrisley Knows Best, with the kids trying to convince their father to let them go on their adventure. He ultimately agrees to a 90-day trial period, with the stipulation that their grandmother join them on their road trip. And so the second episode is more of the same, with Chase and Savannah on a road trip with Nanny Faye. It’s not until the third episode that the new series really kicks off, and Chase and Savannah move to Los Angeles and start on their quest to launch their careers.

The new series is worth a look for fans of the original show, but it may take a few weeks until you see what the new series is really going to be like.

On tonight’s premiere, “Chase & Savannah Fly the Nest,” Chase and Savannah Chrisley embark on a cross-country move to prove they’re independent grown-ups.

See how Chase and Savannah convince their dad of their plans tonight on USA Network at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording black-ish, The Rookie, This Is Us, and The Village.

Tonight, TruTV launches the 10-episode first season of the new firehouse comedy Tacoma FD, starring and created by two of the “Super Troopers,” Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme. Terry McConky (Heffernan) was recently made chief of his firehouse, but he’s having trouble transitioning from being one of the guys to being the more responsible one in charge. His brother-in-law and best friend of 25 years, Captain Eddie Penisi (Lemme), doesn’t make this task any easier. He’s always encouraging his buddy to participate in the firehouse shenanigans. Meanwhile, Councilwoman Linda Price (Suzy Nakamura, The Goldbergs) tries to get the chief back on track before the firehouse gets shut down but is often shocked and appalled by the antics she witnesses whenever she arrives unannounced. The rest of the crew includes Andy Myawani (Eugene Cordero, Black Monday, The Good Place), Granny Smith (Marcus Henderson, Get Out, Homecoming), and the dim-witted Ike Crystal (Gabriel Hogan, Heartland, Condor). And shaking things up at the testosterone-filled firehouse is new probie Lucy (Hassie Harrison, Southbound).

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere – it had me laughing out loud quite a bit. This show definitely has a similar feel to Super Troopers and the other Broken Lizard comedies. There’s a lot of downtime at the station, so the guys need to find ways to amuse themselves, which usually results in playing pranks on one another or coming up with crazy, stupid competitions. When the bell actually does ring and the guys are called to help someone in need, it’s not typically a matter of life and death, so the fun and games also continue on the job. I’m looking forward to watching more of this show – it looks like a fun, comedic alternative to those more serious first responder dramas.

On tonight’s premiere, “On the Hot Seat,” Tacoma FD’s newest chief, Terry McConky, is under scrutiny by the city council to get serious about his station’s ratings; Terry’s crew puts his job in jeopardy by engaging in a ridiculous competition for a super “sawft” prize.

Join the newest TV firefighters tonight on TruTV at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, Superstore, A.P. Bio, Will & Grace, Abby’s, and The Other Two.

It’s taking some time for me to fully like all the characters on the new Whiskey Cavalier. I go back and forth on most of them, depending on the episode. Like last week, I got almost as irritated with Standish as Jai did. He was being pretty disrespectful, having all his trash and crap lying around in other people’s space. I’m no neat freak, but dang. Then again, Standish did well getting the guard to take in the champagne to the bad guy (or rather, the bad guy’s body double. LOL). So it was a tossup. I also got really irritated with Frankie for her crappy attitude toward Will, and going off and kissing the groomsman and then her line about it being the American way for all couples to cheat really ticked me off. I did love the fight in the locker room with the woman from Will’s past! LOL But overall, I’m still enjoying the show, and I think they’re just going to grow and gel as a cast, which will make it even better.

On tonight’s episode, “The English Job,” while investigating suspicious robberies in London, Will hits it off with a sexy British spy, leaving Frankie with some unexpected feelings that she doesn’t know how to process. Meanwhile, Jai competes with Susan over who is more intelligent, and Standish deals with a case of shell shock. Ophelia Lovibond (Elementary) guest stars.

See how Frankie handles her feelings tonight on ABC at 10/9c.
