I’m so freaking excited about this premiere – one of the shows I’ve been most excited about this new season. Based on the Jason Bourne books by Robert Ludlum and the movie franchise, Treadstone is an action-packed thriller set amidst the CIA black ops program Operation Treadstone. For those who’ve seen the movies, Treadstone is the program that turned Jason Bourne into…well, Jason Bourne. The show explores the origin story and present-day actions of the infamous covert program that uses behavior modification protocol to turn recruits into nearly superhuman assassins. It follows sleeper agents across the globe as they’re mysteriously “awakened” to resume their deadly missions.

The show stars Brian J. Smith (Sense8, Stargate Universe), Michael Gaston (Blind Justice, The Leftovers, Strange Angel, Unforgettable), Michelle Forbes (Wonderland, Snitch, The Killing, Berlin Station), Omar Metwally (Line of Sight, Virtuality), Patrick Fugit (Outcast, Reckless), Tracy Ifeachor (Quantico, The Originals, Crossbones), Tess Haubrich (Pine Gap), Emilia Schule (Berlin Station), Gabrielle Scharnitzky, Hyo Joo Han, Jeremy Irvine, & Shruti Haasan. Treadstone was developed by and executive produced by Tim Kring (Heroes, Touch, Crossing Jordan).

The show should be completely full of action and intrigue, I’m hoping like a 1-hour movie each week. Woohoo! So can’t wait for this one!

On tonight’s episode, “The Cicada Protocol,” superhuman assassins created during a covert operation are reactivated to resume their deadly missions.

Don’t miss the exciting premiere tonight on USA Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Conners, NCIS, Chopped, FBI, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Last week, The Resident returned for its third season on FOX. In the opening moments, we learned that it was Nic’s sister Jessie who didn’t survive the surgery, while her father did. Nic was taking the loss hard, and even though it had been a month, Nic was still not ready to scatter to her sister’s ashes and say goodbye. Mina tried to convince Nic to come back to work, letting her know that Red Rock Mountain Medical had cut the funding for her free clinic – this conglomerate that purchased Chastain Park only cares about the bottom line and profits over patients.

Back at the hospital, a young patient had run away at the sight of a needle, and Conrad tracked him to the basement. However, there was a gas leak and the proton beam accelerator exploded, sending shrapnel into Conrad and particle physicist Annie. While treating their injuries, the doctors discovered that Annie had Stage 4 cancer, which she was determined to fight. There was some suspicion that the explosion might not have been an accident and that someone at Red Rock may have wanted to eliminate the costly machinery that was hardly being utilized, in favor of the insurance payout.

Meanwhile, Kit got wind that Red Rock was thinking of not renewing her contract due to her low billing rate of just $2M per year. However, they were excited to bring in rock star neurosurgeon Barrett Cain, with his $80M per year in billings. Plus, last season’s miracle triple transplant patient, Eloise, was now an intern at the hospital but must take extreme precautions when seeing sick patients due to her cystic fibrosis.

The series is back in full form, and the new staff shake-ups at the hospital should make for some interesting new dynamics this season. It seems so long ago that we were holding our breath every time that Dr. Bell entered the operating room. Now it seems like he should be the least of the patients’ concerns – they should be more worried about the hospital administrators who see them as a number and whose sole goal is to maximize profits, even at the expense of their needs.

On tonight’s episode, “Flesh of My Flesh,” intending to garner publicity for the hospital, Cain tries to recruit Bell and Kit on a dangerous surgery; the Raptor develops an emotional attachment to a patient; Mina’s friend arrives with shocking news.

Find out what Bell and Kit decide about the surgery tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Bless This Mess, mixed-ish, black-ish, Emergence, and This Is Us.

Tonight ABC kicks off the new mystery/thriller/family drama Emergence. While ABC didn’t provide a screener for the series, they did make the first 9 minutes of the series available to watch on their web site, and I was hooked after checking it out this short preview. I am looking forward to seeing the full episode tonight!

Small-town police chief Jo Evans (Allison Tolman, Fargo) is at home with her 14-year-old daughter Mia (Ashley Aufderheide, The Slap) and father Ed (Clancy Brown, Earth 2) when there is a sudden, short, town-wide power outage. The outage also temporarily knocks out all electronic devices, causing a small plane to crash. When Jo heads to the crash site to investigate, she finds a mysterious young girl named Piper (Alexa Swinton), who has no memory of who she is or what happened. It’s unclear if she was part of the crash, but she doesn’t have a scratch on her. Jo brings Piper to the hospital to get her checked out but soon discovers that there are people posing as government agents who are looking for the girl. Jo decides to take Piper in to protect her until she can figure out more about this conspiracy surrounding who this girl is and what’s happening. But while the two are in the car, they start to experience some strange phenomena, and it seems like Piper may be the source.

Every year, at least one of the networks seems to have one of these high-concept mystery/thrillers in their new fall lineup, always trying to recreate the magic of Lost. And while many of them don’t make it, I always end up watching and enjoying these shows. This one has an interesting premise and a great cast, and I hope it sticks around. The cast also includes many recognizable TV faces, including Owain Yeoman (The Mentalist) as Benny Gallagher, Robert Bailey Jr. (The Night Shift) as Officer Chris Minetto, Zabryna Guevara (New Amsterdam) as Abby Fraiser, and Donald Faison (Scrubs) as Alex Evans.

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, we got a chance to talk about the series with the executive producer and some of the show’s amazing cast. Check out our videos from the press room at NoReruns.net.

Don’t miss tonight’s premiere on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Bless This Mess, mixed-ish, black-ish, This Is Us, The Resident, and USA Network’s preview of Treadstone.

Last week’s FBI hit way too close to home for Maggie in a couple of different ways. First up was the victim of the case-of-the-week, another FBI agent who was also married to an FBI agent. Maggie had been at Quantico with the victim’s wife, so she was friends with the couple. So his murder hit her hard, and she knew how his widow was feeling, since her husband had also been killed. But during the case, in which they figured out the lawyer killed him and a gang member and caught the gang leader who in turn killed the lawyer, they also figured out that the victim had been cheating on his wife. Only, when Maggie finally told her at the end, it turned out she already knew. That’s when Maggie learned from Kristen that Maggie’s husband had been exchanging late-night phone calls with a woman before his death. Kristen couldn’t tell her if those calls were business or personal, but we know that Kristen told OA that there didn’t seem to be any business reason for him to have called her. Right at the end, we saw Maggie go to the woman’s work and ask to see her. What we don’t know is what Maggie learned. I don’t know if we’ll find that out in tonight’s season finale or if we’ll just be left to speculate. Given the episode description, I think we’ll find out… Either way, it’s been a fun first season, and I can’t wait for season two already.

On tonight’s episode, “Closure,” a woman with information about the death of Maggie’s husband is abducted leading the team to uncover a criminal operation larger than anyone imagined. Also, Dana puts her career in jeopardy by standing by and allowing Maggie to work on the case, which has such a personal connection to her.

Don’t miss the chance to get more answers to Maggie’s husband’s death tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Housewife, MasterChef Junior, NCIS, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Max has been having a rough time lately on New Amsterdam because Sharpe has stopped being his oncologist due to her trying to save their friendship, but his new doctor isn’t accepting his way of putting his treatment schedule off. The new doctor is adamant that he will not survive if he keeps putting hospital business above his own health, and she is very right. He has to start making the hard decisions for his own sake because his wife and daughter need him to be around.

On tonight’s episode, “Preventable,” Max is forced to reckon with his diagnosis in a new way, as things become more difficult for him. Meanwhile, Reynolds is forced to address what could have gone wrong in a recent surgery.

To see if Max can find a new way to fight his cancer, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching FBI, The Voice, NCIS: New Orleans, NCIS, The Flash, MasterChef Junior, The Village, Mental Samurai, and Chopped.
