My first pick tonight is the new episode of NCIS: LA. Last week, Callen got news on Anna’s whereabouts from Joelle of all people, and they, along with Sam, Kensi, & Deeks, traveled to Cuba. Anna was apparently working with Joelle to find and take down Volkoff, who also had Callen’s father. Anna, Joelle, and Callen ended up being held by Volkoff, and at first it seemed like Anna and Joelle were killed by him right in front of Callen, but that turned out to be faked by Volkoff. In the end, Anna was shot but was going to be okay. She couldn’t return to the States, though, because even though the CIA & Joelle would clear her name, her face would still be known everywhere. So she went with Joelle and would continue working with her. Callen’s father was shot as well, and though he lived long enough to get back to LA and see both his daughter and grandson, as well as visit the grave of his other daughter who died when she was a child, he ended up dying from an infection. It was a little heartbreaking, watching Callen put the coin on his father’s headstone, but at least they all had a chance to see one another and say goodbye. And finally, a more fitting end couldn’t have come for a better person. Volkoff, who was shot after setting off chlorine gas in the bunker they were all in, which our guys barely escaped from, ended up being trapped in the bunker and dying from the gas.

I’m so excited about tonight’s episode (and next week’s finale) because we’ve got a huge JAG reunion. If you didn’t watch the show when it was originally on, it starred David James Elliott as Harmon “Harm” Rabb Jr., a former pilot turned lawyer who was now working for the military’s Judge Advocate General (ergo: JAG) division. Catherine Bell played alongside him as Lt. Col. Sarah Mackenzie. It started off on NBC, which canceled it after a single season, and then moved to CBS, where it aired for nine more seasons…and saw the spinoff of NCIS, which of course led to all the spinoffs after. Bet NBC is kicking themselves now, aren’t they? LOL Tonight’s episode will feature David James Elliott back as Harm, while Catherine Bell will return in next week’s finale.

On tonight’s episode, “The Guardian,” Callen and Sam travel to the USS Allegiance in the Persian Gulf to work with Navy Captain Harmon “Harm” Rabb, Jr. (David James Elliott)
when the NCIS team uncovers ISIS sympathizers who are targeting military locations. Mercedes Mason returns as DEA Agent Talia Del Campo.

Don’t miss the return of two familiar faces tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

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.

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

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.
