Tonight, TBS kicks off the second season of the dark comedy, Search Party. In the first season, New Yorker Dory (Alia Shawkat, Arrested Development) came across a missing persons flyer for former classmate Chantal Witherbottom. Dory didn’t know Chantal very well, but she quickly made it her mission to find out what happened to the young woman and enlisted the help of her friends. Most of Dory’s friends are a bit self-absorbed and narcissistic, and they don’t understand why Dory has become obsessed with Chantal, but they helped her out anyway. At the end of the first season, this makeshift Scooby Gang had managed to track down the place in Montreal where Chantal was staying. In a moment of confusion, Dory’s boyfriend Drew (John Reynolds, Stranger Things) whacked private eye Keith on the head with a candlestick, killing him. When Elliot (John Early, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp) saw what happened, he told them not to call the police. As they tried to clean things up and hide the body, Portia arrived with a happy and healthy Chantal – her disappearance had just been a misunderstanding all along!

As the second season opens, Dory, Elliot, and Drew must deal with the body hiding in the closet before the others discover what happened. Will they get caught? How will they dispose of the body, and how will they cover their tracks? Now that Chantal is no longer missing, will this group find a new mystery to try to solve, or will they just get back to their old self-absorbed lives is New York City? I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere – who knew covering up a murder could be so funny?!

On the first half of tonight’s double-episode premiere, “Murder!” after finding Chantal and killing the not-so-villainous Keith, the gang is faced with the horrifying task of trying to bury a body before the sun comes up. Then, in “Conspiracy,” the gang goes on a mission to cover up Keith’s semi-accidental murder and return Chantal to her family, with just a few major roadblocks along the way.

Check out the first two episodes of the season tonight on TBS starting at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Ghosted, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, The Walking Dead, Good Behavior, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and SMILF.

Tonight TBS kicks off its new dark comedy Search Party, which centers around a group of self-absorbed twenty-somethings who find themselves mixed up in the mystery surrounding the disappearance of one of their former college classmates, Chantal. Dory (Alia Shawkat, Arrested Development) feels like a doormat – she’s got a thankless job working as an assistant to a rich housewife and is trapped in a relationship with boyfriend Drew (John Reynolds, Stranger Things), who only cares about his own needs. Despite having little memory of the missing girl, Dory makes it her mission to find Chantal in hopes of adding some sort of meaning and purpose to her life. She tries to rile up her friends to help with the search party, but actress Portia (Meredith Hagner, Royal Pains), narcissist Elliott (John Early, Your Main Thing), and boyfriend Drew seem more concerned with their images and dramatically posting to social media about how Chantal’s disappearance has affected them, rather than actually doing something to help. But this search party could be a way for Dory to get closer to journalist ex-boyfriend Julian (Brandon Michael Hall), who still makes her light up when he enters the room.

TBS will be airing two episodes of the 10-episode first season every night this week from 11pm-midnight (ET/PT). In addition, all 10 episodes will be made available for binging via On Demand. I checked out the first episode, and while I didn’t find the show laugh-out-loud funny, I did find some humorous moments, and it made me curious to check out more to learn what’s really going on with Chantal’s disappearance and to see if any of Dory’s self-obsessed friends have any redeeming qualities.

On tonight’s first episode, “The Mysterious Disappearance of Chantal Witherbottom,” when Dory discovers that her friend, Chantal, has gone missing, she becomes obsessed with finding out what happened, even though her boyfriend, Drew, and friends, Elliott and Portia, couldn’t care less.

Then, in “The Woman Who Knew Too Much,” Dory begins to doubt whether she saw Chantal the night before, but an offbeat realtor claims that she has the proof that Dory is looking for.

Check out the first two episodes tonight on TBS at 11/10c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Man With a Plan, Timeless, Gotham, Lucifer, Supergirl, Jane the Virgin, and People of Earth.
