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.

Tonight, NBC kicks off the new drama The Village, which follows the intertwining lives of the residents of an apartment building in Brooklyn. Those living in The Village include single mother/nursing home physical therapist Sarah (Michaela McManus, SEAL Team, Aquarius) and her social activist teenage daughter Katie (Grace Van Dien, Greenhouse Academy), who seems to be making the same mistakes her mother did; law school student Gabriel and his grandfather, Pops (Dominic Chianese, The Sopranos), who recently lost his lifelong friend; immigrant Ava (Moran Atias, The Resident, Tyrant) and her young US-born son Sami, who are facing trouble with ICE; and wounded veteran, Staff Sergeant Nick Porter (Warren Christie, The Resident, Alphas), The Village’s newest resident and bartender. Taking care of the building and its residents are Village super Ron (Frankie Faison, Banshee) and his wife of 32-years, Patricia (Lorraine Toussaint, Into the Badlands), as well as neighborhood cop Ben (Jerod Haynes, Southside with You).

Based on tonight’s episode, the series looks like a solid “family” drama, with some emotional and unexpected twists. This isn’t your conventional family – this group of neighbors have formed their own family, coming together to help one another through the good times and bad. The Village seems like a perfect fit in the post This is Us time slot, as I suspect there will be a lot of crossover in the audience.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” Sarah, a single mom, navigates life with her teenage daughter; Ava is thrown into crisis when she’s arrested by ICE; Nick returns home from war to discover everything he’s left behind; Ron and Patricia work to keep the Village family intact.

Meet the residents of The Village tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/recording American Housewife, The Kids Are Alright, black-ish, The Rookie, This Is Us, MasterChef Junior, Mental Samurai, The Flash, and Miracle Workers.

On last week’s episode of New Amsterdam, we got to see a bit more of how Max was dealing with his diagnosis and how he is trying to relate to the other patients receiving chemotherapy. It was funny watching Max trying to find his sense of humor and how bad some of his puns were. On a different note we saw Bloom at her group counseling session when she admitted that having Reynolds come by actually gave her hope and the will to keep going. I really would like to see Reynolds and Bloom eventually as a couple, because despite the fact that Reynolds is in a relationship, these two belong together.

On tonight’s episode, “King of Swords,” when a history-making blizzard hits New York, Max and his staff must work together to keep their patients safe with little resources, even if it means taking to the streets of the city and braving the storm.

To watch these doctors go back to basics and save lives, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Flash, NCIS, MasterChef Junior, Ellen’s Game of Games, This is Us, FBI, and Roswell, New Mexico.

Tonight, the NBC comedy A.P. Bio returns for its second season. Last season, we were introduced to disgraced former Harvard Philosophy professor Jack Griffin, who had reluctantly moved back home to Toledo, Ohio, and taken over as the Advanced Placement Biology teacher at Whitlock High School. However, Jack doesn’t actually do any teaching – he told his students that he will give them all A’s as long as they don’t report him. Instead, Jack is constantly putting his students to work to help carry out his own personal schemes, such as plotting ways to get revenge on the rival who stole his tenure. As the first season progressed, Jack’s projects also branched out into schemes involving some of his students’ personal lives. And while Jack continued to put on this rough, selfish exterior, it was clear that he was warming up to the students and actually cared about someone other than himself. The series also follows the misadventures of the rest of the school’s inept staff, including Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt), secretary Helen (Paula Pell), and the rest of the staff.

The new season starts off with things pretty much the same, picking up in the same school year with Jack “teaching” the same class of students. Jack is once again enlisting his pupils to aid in his latest scheme that will hopefully allow him to quickly achieve financial and professional success and get out of Toledo and back to the real world. Meanwhile, there’s plenty of other craziness ensuing in the main office and in teacher’s lounge.

On tonight’s premiere, “Happiness,” Jack tries to unlock the secret of what makes ordinary people happy, leading him to a new book idea that he believes will be his ticket out of Whitlock High and Toledo; Mary, Stef and Michelle celebrate a special day.

See what Jack comes up with for his book idea tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c.

Tonight, NBC’s dramedy Good Girls returns for its second season, picking up immediately where the first season cliffhanger left off. In the first season, we met a trio of friends who had come on hard times and turned to desperate measures to get some quick cash. Seemingly perfect Detroit housewife Beth (Christina Hendricks, Mad Men) discovered that her husband Dean (Mathew Lillard, Scream) had been cheating on her and had mismanaged their money, putting their car dealership in deep financial trouble. Beth’s sister Annie (Mae Whitman, Parenthood) learned that her ex Gregg (Zach Gilford, Friday Night Lights) wanted custody of their teenage daughter, so she needed money for a lawyer. And their friend Ruby (Retta, Parks and Recreation) needed money fast in order to pay for medical treatments for her seriously ill daughter.

The three women staged an armed robbery at the grocery store where Annie worked but discovered afterwards that the store was being used as a front to launder money for a street gang. The women then found themselves at the mercy of gang leader Rio (Manny Montana, Graceland) and were forced to get involved in even more illegal activities in order to pay him back. Meanwhile, neighbor Mary Pat (Allison Tolman, Fargo) figured out what the ladies were up to and started blackmailing Beth, Annie’s sleazy boss Boomer (David Hornsby, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) was desperately trying to find hard evidence that the woman were behind the robbery, and Ruby’s police officer husband Stan (Reno Wilson, Mike & Molly) learned the truth about what the women were up to. In an attempt to fix their problems, the women decided to once again rob the grocery store, but this time Beth left a folder of evidence for FBI Agent Turner (James Lesure, Men at Work), which implicated Rio and the street gang. However, the plan backfired. The gang was released on bail, and Beth arrived home to find her husband beaten and tied up. Rio was there – he slid a gun to Beth, stating, “You want to be the king, you gotta kill the king.”

Will Rio kill Dean and/or Beth? Or will Beth have the guts to shoot Rio before he has a chance to? How will the women get out of their predicament – they’ve got the gang, blackmailers, the FBI and Boomer all after them? Will Boomer find the evidence he is desperately looking for in order to get revenge on the women for robbing his store and tying him up in the treehouse? And how will Stan deal with his wife’s illegal activities? Most of those questions will be answered in tonight’s season premiere, which contains the same blend of humor and drama that made the first season so great. The writers also find fun new ways to get the women involved in new capers as they try to prevent themselves from getting caught. I’m looking forward to the rest of the season to see what other crazy twists and turns lie ahead.

On tonight’s season premiere, “I’d Rather Be Crafting,” Beth must live with the fallout after her plan to get Rio arrested fails; the women’s crimes finally catch up with them when evidence surfaces that puts them on a collision course with Agent Turner.

See how the cliffhanger resolves tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, Supergirl, The Walking Dead, Worst Cooks in America, Crashing, Black Monday, and SMILF.
