For the last four years, I have affectionately referred to Gotham as my favorite #SlowMoSharkJump, and it has been a great cheeky ride, but tonight our allegorical Arthur Fonzarelli crashes down to the water on those jet skis when the series finale airs. From the start this has been a tale about a select set of Batman characters: Bruce Wayne, Alfred, Jim Gordon, The Penguin, The Riddler, & Selina Kyle…who will become Catwoman. This core crew lasted from the pilot to now as we saw in last week’s penultimate episode, wherein they united to face down Bane and Nyssa al Ghul and the army they have co-opted control of.

Bruce tried to use the Joker’s old bombs to corner the army, but that did not cut them off from the Green Zone. Jim & Selina rescued Barbara and the baby from Nyssa, and he tried to have them all escape through tunnels. When Bane’s army showed up to kill Jim, the refugees stood in the way and the army refused to kill innocents. In the aftermath of this battle, Gotham was ready to rebuild. Penguin & Riddler vowed to be great villains again as Gordon was finally made Police Commissioner. Bruce left Gotham, seeking some sort of solace, leaving Selina only a note. She tried to head him off at the airport but failed.

Honestly, this could have been the last episode, but they wanted to fast forward the tale to when Bruce is fully Batman, hence tonight. I think we move into the future a few years, so maybe now the same gawky teen Bruce Wayne we’ve endured for years. I can’t wait either way and am mega-sad to see this show go. Guess we have Batwoman to look forward to at least!

On tonight’s episode, “The Beginning…” the series flash-forwards 10 years into the future, as Bruce is set to return to Gotham for the opening of the new Wayne Tower. A series of crimes leads Gordon to believe Penguin and the Riddler are up to their old tricks. However, when Bullock is framed for a murder, Gordon begins to piece together an even more sinister plot targeting the city, and a new figure emerges from the shadows to be the hero Gotham desperately needs.

Meet the new Batman on tonight’s series finale on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching the season finale of The Orville, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.

It’s another night of fun cooking shows for me, and first up is the season premiere of The Great American Baking Show on ABC. Last season was scrapped after the season premiere when judge Johnny Iuzzini came under fire for sexual harassment (unrelated to this show). Because of that, we missed out on watching this show last year. So it’s been almost a year now since we last saw it, and now we get to meet a new cast as well as a new host and judge!

Ayesha Curry won’t be back as host. Alongside Anthony “Spice” Adams will be Emma Bunton…otherwise known as Baby Spice in the Spice Girls group. And joining last season’s judge (& judge on The Great British Baking Show!) Paul Hollywood is fabulous pastry chef Sherry Yard, who also judged Halloween Baking Championship. I don’t know if I care about either of hosts – I don’t know them well enough yet to – but I really enjoy both judges, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what they have up their sleeves for the bakers this season.

On tonight’s 2-hour premiere, “Cake and Pastry Week,” it’s on your marks, get set, bake…slices of cake, and sweet and savory pastries.

Meet the contestants and new judge and host tonight on ABC starting at 9/8c.

Tonight, one of the best comedies of the last two years returns when The Good Place airs on NBC at 8pm. It’s a special hour of the show, which follows the afterlife of 4 morally dubious humans, one demon torment architect, & the lovely and polite robotic helper Janet. In case you forgot what happened at the end of last year’s rollercoaster ride of a season, let me remind you! After escaping from the fake “Good Place” to the central city that all angels, demons, and judges live in, the human stars Elanor, Chidi, Jason & Tahani get their moment before Judge Gen.

Played by Maya Rudolph, the judge was ready to have them all sent to “limbo’ style” Medium Places until a more formal decision could be made. Michael made an impassioned speech on behalf of the humans, and instead of the Medium Place, they instead re-inserted them all back into life, at the moment of death. They saved them all with a slight “push” to prevent their disastrous deaths. Struck by her near-death experience, Elanor decided to get her shit together. She quit her job and started working soliciting money for saving the environment. She even became a vegetarian. But after a half year, she grew bored of being good and opted for a Taylor Spliffed concert instead of work. (Yes, that’s a reggae band that covers Taylor Swift songs!)

Michael, who was monitoring them all, sneaked down to Earth to leave her a hint that led her to Chidi. After a night drinking together, Michael asked her, “What do we owe each other?” which led her to a YouTube video of Chidi lecturing on ethics & morality. And like totally sane people do, she tracked him down and flew to Australia to meet him. Cue season three!

On tonight’s episode, “Everything is Bonzer,” Michael intervenes in the near-death accidents of Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani, and Jason on Earth, in hopes that a second chance at life allows them to become better versions of themselves.

Catch up with the gang tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching the premiere of the Murphy Brown reboot, because that’s just weird.

Last week was a very different sort of Chicago Fire. The alarms went off and both trucks and the ambo rolled out, only to be stopped by black SUVs squealing into the parking lot. It was the FBI, and they were taking over the firehouse, so they needed the trucks and ambo out of the way so they could park their vehicles inside, out of the way of prying eyes. They were going after a guy who killed one of the FBI agents, and they knew he was going to be in the apartment building across from the firehouse. The same apartment building where the father and his young daughter lived who the guys at the station met when the dad ran his daughter over when she was choking on a bite of hotdog.

In the end, Severide and Casey volunteered to go over as firemen and see what they could learn about the apartment the FBI was interested in. Then when the killer showed up, they went in with the FBI behind them dressed as firefighters after getting the father to pull the fire alarm to give them an excuse to come over. It worked, although one of the FBI people caught a bullet to the vest and two bad guys were killed. One sweet thing was Casey got Boden to let Otis drive the truck over to the apartment building. And Severide’s parents broke up again after Severide told his dad that she deserved better.

After seeing the preview for this week, I’m excited because it looks like it’ll be a good episode. Do they suddenly have a way to get rid of the annoying new guy, Cordova? Or is that going to be too easy? Hmm…

On tonight’s episode, “Where I Want to Be,” after responding to a residential fire at a property belonging to a Mexican drug cartel, Casey is skeptical of Cordova (guest star Damon Dayoub) after a hefty amount of money was found missing from the crime scene. Elsewhere, Kidd makes a big decision.

Find out who, if anyone, took the money tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Beat Bobby Flay, & S.W.A.T.

Tonight, The Good Place returns for the first of its final 5 episodes of the season. When we last left off, Michael was worried that Janet’s dimwitted new boyfriend Derek was going to go blab to Vicky, so he sought advice from Eleanor and Chidi on how to handle the situation (besides just killing Derek). Meanwhile, Jason and Tahani went off on a weekend getaway, where Jason proposed to Tahani. The two planned to get married later that day on the beach, but the rest of the group rushed to stop them. Eleanor told Tahani that in a past iteration, Jason had been married to Janet, and that was enough for her to call off the wedding. Janet was then forced to confront her feelings for Jason, and this caused her to dispose of Derek herself. Finally, Eleanor showed Chidi the VHS tape of the two of them professing their love for one another in a past iteration, and both of them agreed they didn’t have feelings for one another. And the episode ended with Michael returning to his office, where his angry boss Shawn was waiting.

Can Michael really become a good guy, or is he up to something? Does Shawn know about Michael and the others? And if so, does this mean Michael is going to be permanently terminated, or is there some other twist that we don’t know about yet? What is our gang’s ultimate plan? Will Eleanor and Chidi admit they do have feelings for one another? Will Jason and Tahani end up together, or is there still a chance for Janet and Jason? (And how does that even work?!) This is one of the shows I really look forward to each week, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the season plays out, and what kind of new cliffhanger they leave us with 4 weeks from now!

On tonight’s episode, “Leap to Faith,” Michael receives a surprise visitor. Meanwhile, Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani, and Jason attempt to solve a riddle.

Find out if the group can solve the riddle tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Life in Pieces, Superstore, Will & Grace, Van Helsing, and Damnation.
