I really enjoyed the last episode of NCIS: New Orleans. A group of street kids were pulling cons and stealing from tourists. But they stole a bag from petty officer who then followed them, only to be stopped by the “leader” of the street kids, the oldest of the bunch, who had a gun. Fortunately the kids didn’t kill him, but the bad guys (who were after diamonds they’d hidden in the petty officer’s camera) who did also killed a couple of the street kids, which was really sad. Percy & Gregorio got close to two of the kids, taking them home with them for the night so they didn’t have to send them into the system. And poor Pride is trying so hard to play by the rules, but then something crops up (like trying to help the kids), where he feels it best to go off-book, and it gets him into trouble, even though things work out for the best. He just can’t seem to win!

On tonight’s episode, “Mirror Mirror,” after Rita Deveraux tells Pride that Hamilton is about to make a deal to get out of prison, Pride and the team rehash the Clearwater case in hopes of locating his mystery partner and spoiling his bargaining chip. Chelsea Field, Steven Weber, & Stacy Keach guest star.

See if Pride can once again take down Hamilton tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, NCIS, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Major Crimes, Chicago Med, & Chopped.

I’m so glad that Chicago Med is back tonight. I hate that we had to wait until late November to get it, especially after the way last season ended! Dr. Charles was preoccupied with his daughter Robin’s health, both mental and physical, after she had what they thought was a psychotic break but really turned out to be a brain tumor. So that was good, at least, since it meant she would be cured after surgery. But because he was preoccupied, he didn’t go down and check on the former patient who ranted and raved in the ER waiting room all day, and when Dr. Charles left the hospital late that night, the man confronted him…and shot him! Eek!

Of course, that wasn’t the only story line shocker of the finale. The gang was together celebrating the fact that Noah got placed there at Chicago Med, and during the party, Ethan (Dr. Choi) & April finally kissed after they’d been dancing around one another for weeks. Not only that, but Will & Natalie (Drs. Halstead & Manning) danced and looked like they were getting closer – thank goodness, because Will FINALLY broke up with Nina, which meant both of them were single. Now, how the show will handle both potential couples, we’ll have to see!

Did the gunshot kill Dr. Charles? How is Robin doing after her diagnosis, and how did it affect her relationship with Connor (Dr. Rhodes)? Will either of the pairings from the finale be together now? How much time has passed since that night? I’ve seen tonight’s premiere, and it answers (or at least starts to answer) some of those questions. It’s an exciting episode, so buckle up, because I have a feeling it’s going to be a great season!

On tonight’s episode, “Speak Your Truth,” the doctors of Chicago Med take their opinions to the extreme as they try to bring justice to the perpetrator in the shooting of Dr. Charles. Dr. Halstead and Dr. Manning work on a heart-wrenching case that forces them to examine their own matters of the heart. Though Robin’s brain tumor was removed and she is discharged from the rehabilitation center, Dr. Rhodes remains on edge that her problems are not quite resolved. Meanwhile, Rhodes gets blindsided by his colleague Dr. Bekker, Maggie sticks up for a patient, and Dr. Choi and April try to navigate their new working relationship.

Catch up with the hospital gang in Chicago tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, NCIS, Dancing with the Stars, The Little Couple, Major Crimes, MasterChef Canada, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Early today, Hulu released all 13 episodes of the first season of the new sci-fi comedy Future Man. Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson, The Hunger Games) still lives at home with his parents, Gabe (Ed Begley Jr., St. Elsewhere) & Diana (Glenne Headly, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels). He works a dead-end job as a janitor at Kronish Laboratories, a sexual-disease research facility. He is obsessed with an unwinnable video game called Biotic Wars – it seems that no matter what he tries, he cannot complete the final level. However, one day he changes up his strategy and manages to win the game. Soon afterwards, he is visited by two characters from the game, Resistance leader Tiger (Eliza Coupe, Happy Endings) and foot soldier Wolf (Derek Wilson, Preacher, Rectify). They have traveled back in time from a bleak future, and Josh is the only person who can help fix things – the video game was a recruitment tool/test to help them find their Savior. After Josh gets over his initial disbelief, he soon discovers that these visitors are a quite crude, violent, and don’t understand proper human behavior. At the same time, Tiger and Wolf are disappointed to learn that Josh is not quite the fierce warrior they expected him to be. This trio must learn to work together to prevent the series of events that led up to the downfall of the planet.

The series comes from executive producers/directors Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg (Preacher). I recently binged the first seven episodes, and I would have watched the entire season had it been made available. Each episode blends right into the next, making the season feel like one long, epic movie. This show is hilarious, and I found myself constantly laughing out loud. It’s got physical humor, witty dialogue, and fun movie/pop-culture references strewn throughout. At the same time, it’s an action-packed sci-fi series. I also really enjoyed the fish-out-of-water aspect of Tiger and Wolf clashing/trying to fit in with modern culture and morals. It is so great seeing Eliza Coupe back on my TV in a comedy – Tiger is easily my favorite character on this series!

While the show may sound like a family friendly sci-fi action/comedy, there is a lot of adult language and situations, so parents may wish to check it out first before allowing younger viewers to watch.

Check out the entire first season now on Hulu!

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, This Is Us, The Mick, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Flash, American Horror Story: Cult, and Damnation.

I’m of mixed emotions about tonight’s Major Crimes season premiere. I’m excited because it’s back and it promises to be another great season…but I’m also sad because it’s the final season. After 7 seasons of The Closer and now starting the 6th season of Major Crimes, these characters couldn’t feel more like family if they tried. I’ll miss them all – but Provenza and Flynn will always have a spot on my favorite characters of all-time list.

When we last left off six months ago (our time – I have no idea how long it’ll have been on the show…), the squad was chasing the bomber who was blowing up people in a case of romance gone bad. He then began targeting the Major Crimes squad…finally ending up causing an explosion that took out their entire squad room. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem like anyone was hurt, and they got the guy. But this means we come back tonight to a whole new set, which should be a lot of fun, especially since this is the last season of the show. Phillip Stroh is back this season, and in December the show will hit its 100th episode just before the series finale in January. So it’s going to be an action-packed, fun final season, and I can’t wait to get started tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Sanctuary City, Pt 1,” when three fifteen-year-old boys vanish from a Catholic school field trip, new Asst. Chief Mason orders Major Crimes to treat their disappearance as a critical missing. Meanwhile, Sharon receives more evidence that Phillip Stroh may be returning to Los Angeles.

See if the boys can be found safe tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRIng NCIS, Impractical Jokers, The Little Couple, MasterChef Canada, The Mayor, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Last week’s NCIS: New Orleans was all about the haunted aspect of New Orleans, when a murder turned out to be a copycat to an unsolved case from 150 years before. Ghosts, mediums… The episode had it all, including a freaked-out Gregorio, who was spooked beyond belief but claimed she didn’t believe in ghosts…until we saw her meeting secretly with the “medium” at the end of the episode, wanting him to speak to a ghost in her past. The case itself was sad, but the ghost/spooky stuff was the fun stuff. Sadly, we got some Lasalle/Percy talk about their…non-relationship issues, and for a while it seemed like they might be split up, but when he saved her from the killer, things got back to normal. I hope this doesn’t mean the writers are going to be just shoveling everything between them under the rug, never to be heard about again, like Criminal Minds did with Morgan and Garcia’s “thing.”

On tonight’s episode, “Viral,” Sebastian is placed on administrative leave after his response in a foot chase to apprehend a high-value fugitive is questioned by the FBI. Also, while Pride and the team continue to track the high value target, they attempt to find a way to clear Sebastian’s name.

See if the team can clear Sebastian’s name with the FBI tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, NCIS, The Little Couple, MasterChef Canada, The Mayor, Chopped, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, & Snoop Dogg Presents the Jokers Wild.
