You know, it doesn’t even matter what happened on the previous episode of NCIS: LA, although there were some great moments, such as Deeks and Roberta at the bar with the health inspector…and Deeks dancing with his mom, convincing her that he didn’t care how good or bad she was, that he wanted to dance with her at his wedding regardless. Another interesting thing was having Nicole DeChamps back…and seeing how things seem to be going between her and Sam. I like that he’s beginning to show some interest. He loved his wife and has grieved for her, but if he’s ready to move on, I’m not going to be unhappy.

But we all know that if you’re a fan of the show – or probably even if you aren’t now but were – then you’re going to be glued to your TV tonight because finally, FINALLY, Kensi and Deeks are getting married! Yes, I’m fangirl squee-ing right along with you guys. It promises to be such a huge episode, with not only the wedding itself but also a couple of unexpected guests (we know one, although I won’t spoil here in case you don’t know and don’t want to know, and there’s strong evidence to support the assumption of the second) AND finally the return of and the long-awaited opening of “the box.” I can only hope it doesn’t turn out to be a letdown – either the wedding or the contents of the box! I don’t have ANY thoughts on what could be in there, but I really hope it’s worth the seasons-long buildup! Besides all that, we finally get to meet all of Kensi’s friends: Cat, Mindy, Mandy, Tiffany, and Tiffany! LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Til Death Do Us Part,” after months of planning, the NCIS family celebrates the wedding of Kensi and Deeks. Also, an old acquaintance pays Deeks a surprise visit on his wedding day, and he isn’t alone.

Celebrate with me tonight as we watch Kensi and Deeks say their vows tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Family Food Showdown, Buddy vs. Duff, & Private Eyes.

It’s been a few weeks since the last new episode of NCIS: LA. In “Smokescreen Pt I,” the team was partnered with the FBI to stop what was believed to be a terrorist cell in Los Angeles. And they did indeed stop a van from blowing up near a military ship anchored at the harbor. (It’s been so long, I can’t remember. Might be a decommissioned ship used as a tourist museum of some sort?) Anyway, long story short, there’s still some terrorists out there, and they had a guy in a suicide vest at a movie theater, and it went kaboom with Sam and Callen inside. Fortunately, Sam and Callen are relatively unhurt. Unfortunately, they and all the other people are trapped inside the theater because the bad guys have explosives on all the outer doors. So Kensi and Deeks are outside dealing with the crowd and the few people who were hurt in the first blast, hoping they don’t suddenly get attacked by sniper fire, while Sam and Callen try to attend to the wounded, even though some people died when the bomb went off and some have since died of their injuries sustained in the explosion. It was a tense episode, and I have no doubt the tense excitement will extend into this week’s new episode as well.

On tonight’s episode, “Smokescreen Pt II,” as the team continues to search for a terrorist cell in Los Angeles, Callen and Sam remain trapped in a movie theater after multiple bombs have detonated and every remaining exit is wired with explosives.

See how Sam and Callen make it out of the theater and if they can all stop the terrorists before more lives are lost tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

Tonight, FOX continues its annual tradition of bringing Broadway to broadcast, with a brand-new, live performance of the Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Rent. The play is a re-imagining of the Puccini opera La Bohème, set in more modern times, following the lives of a group of struggling artists living in New York’s East Village during the peak of the HIV/AIDS crisis. The original Broadway production opened in 1996 and ran for 12 years, making it one of the longest-running Broadway shows. This is probably the most mature production that FOX has taken on so far, so it will be interesting to see how much they will need to change for network television – though they did manage to do Rocky Horror a couple years ago.

The special will be directed by Alex Rudzinski (Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, Grease: Live, Dancing with the Stars), and the star-studded cast includes actress Kiersey Clemons (The Flash, Angie Tribeca), Emmy nominee and Tony Award winner Brandon Victor Dixon (Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, Power), singer/songwriter Jordan Fisher (Dancing with the Stars, The Secret Life of the American Teenager), actress and singer Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical, Powerless), newcomer and singer/songwriter Brennin Hunt, R&B/Pop superstar Mario (Empire), recording artist Tinashe, and performer Valentina (RuPaul’s Drag Race). Plus there will be a “Seasons of Love” solo by Keala Settle (The Greatest Showman).

I usually enjoy these live musical productions, and this one has some memorable songs in it, so I’m looking forward to checking out tonight’s live production.

Don’t miss the performance tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be recording Big Brother, Supergirl, Worst Cooks in America, Crashing, Counterpart, Black Monday, and SMILF.

There were a lot of good moments in the final 2018 episode of NCIS: LA. NCIS Special Agent Nicole DeChamps (Marsha Thomason) was back, filling in for Callen, who spent all episode with Anna in the hospital. The case itself was okay, some parts of it better than others – I really enjoyed Sam sort of bonding with the guys from the Army and Marines who were originally thought to be the bad guys but who’d been drugged so they weren’t exactly in charge of their actions when they ran their vehicle through a Christmas tree lot and shot up the place. I also really enjoyed Nicole and Sam at the rich drug dealer’s party.

Outside the case, there were some great moments. Rogers being a Grinch, even banning the company party and decorations. Callen spending Christmas with Anna, who was in the hospital after being beaten up very badly in prison…and Arkady maybe finally realizing that Callen does truly care about her. Deeks freaking out about hosting the company holiday party at the bar – he was so funny about the food, going so far as to getting a bunch of cakes or bread or whatever from the girlfriend of one of the “suspects” of the case. The team toasting to the people they lost in the previous year, remembering Granger and Hidoko, even mentioning Hetty, who is off on some mysterious project (in reality, Linda Hunt was in an accident over the summer and is apparently still not better enough to get back to work…).

I still want Kensi & Deeks to pick a wedding date and name the bar! (Hello! I have two: Fern’s or The Golden Shark! Duh!)

On tonight’s episode, “The Sound of Silence,” after the chief of logistics for a naval weapons station collapses on the job, the NCIS team must determine if this is a terror threat or a stress-induced breakdown. Also, Kensi and Deeks research different honeymoon locations.

To see if there’s a terror threat and find out where we’re (I mean they’re) going on the honeymoon, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Worst Cooks in America.

Tonight Starz kicks off the second season of Counterpart. The series is an espionage thriller with a sci-fi twist. In the first season, mild-mannered Howard Silk (J.K. Simmons) found himself thrust into a dangerous new world when he learned the truth about the United Nations agency he worked for in Berlin. In 1987, East German scientists had created a door between two parallel Earths, and it is the agency’s responsibility to oversee this crossing point. Up until that point in 1987, the two worlds were exactly the same, but over the 30 years that have passed, they have become much more divergent. In Howard Alpha’s world, his wife is in a coma, but in the Prime world, she is still well – though Emily Prime is involved deeper in the agency and has a strained relationship with her husband. Howard Alpha and his Prime counterpart swap places so that Howard Prime can track down an assassin from his world who made her way into the Alpha world. Meanwhile, we learn that there is some deeper conspiracy going on and a mole inside the agency. By the end of the first season, travel between the worlds is off-limits, and the Howards are stuck living each other’s lives, just as Emily Alpha awakes from her coma.

J.K. Simmons is phenomenal in this series. The two Howards have very different personalities, and it is easy to tell which is which simply by the way they act. However, when the Howards are pretending to be one another, there is this added layer to the performance that is just amazing. I’m looking forward to seeing where the series goes this season, if we’ll get more information on how and why this door was originally built, and what’s really going on with this conspiracy. Also, how much does Emily Alpha knows about all this parallel universe stuff, and was her coma a result of someone trying to silence her?

On tonight’s premiere, “Inside Out,” while hiding in Howard’s life, Howard Prime must avoid detection at home and at the OI; Quayle and Clare struggle to adjust to their new arrangement.

Catch up with Howard and the other Primes and Alphas tonight on Starz at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, The Flash, Doctor Who, and Nightflyers.
