It isn’t very often that I’m super excited about a normal episode of TV (normal as in regular season, not premieres or finales). But tonight’s SEAL Team is coming off a really dramatic one, and I can’t wait for tonight’s. Last week, the team was still deployed, their “Gucci” deployment to the Philippines, where they stay in a hotel while they train Filipino soldiers. It does seem like a cushy deployment – no one shooting at them, lots of downtime eating food from street vendors and drinking in bars. Ray has totally turned a 180 – flirting with a woman who I believe is an American…soldier of some kind? He’s drinking more and more – and hard liquor, not beer. He even lied to Jason about needing to go call Naima, when in reality he went to the bar to drink and talk to the woman. I’m so not liking him right now. Meanwhile, Davis is still at OCS, and last week didn’t go so well for her. It was basically “Hell” training, in which they had to go in a building and put out fires. Something must have happened in Davis’s past, because she clearly froze when she learned about it, and when she got inside and faced the actual fire, ready to go with the hose, she panicked and passed out. I’m wondering if there was a fire when she was a kid and a family member died or something.

But the biggest part of last week’s episode was the end… During their free time at night, the team was at the bar, having a good time, when suddenly there was an explosion. There were dead and injured, but our team and Mandy were all okay, including Sonny, who was outside talking on the phone with Davis. They immediately began searching for survivors and helping the wounded. Clay was all on top of it, running outside to start looking there. He reunited two little brothers, helping find the younger hiding in a truck. But then suddenly, he heard a phone ringing, and he realized it was coming from a backpack near him. Before he could react, it blew, throwing him back and causing severe injuries. He was so critically injured, in fact, that he was airlifted back to the States.

So now the team wants payback, not only for Clay but for the innocent people who were injured and killed. They want to find out who was behind the explosions, whether they were aimed at the team specifically or if it was just a coincidence that they were there. They’ll have to do that while under the watchful eye of Commander Shaw, who it feels like is out to get them – for mistakes made in Mexico, for Clay leaving behind a radio that the Chinese could get their hands on, etc… So hopefully they can find the answers they’re looking for and avoid getting disbanded by the commander.

On tonight’s episode, “Payback,” Bravo Team is out for revenge as they search for the person responsible for the surprise bomb attack that left one of their own in peril.

To see if the team can find answers and revenge tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Battle of the Ages, The Amazing Race, Dinner Takes All, Gone, Guy’s Grocery Games, & Whiskey Cavalier.

It’s taking some time for me to fully like all the characters on the new Whiskey Cavalier. I go back and forth on most of them, depending on the episode. Like last week, I got almost as irritated with Standish as Jai did. He was being pretty disrespectful, having all his trash and crap lying around in other people’s space. I’m no neat freak, but dang. Then again, Standish did well getting the guard to take in the champagne to the bad guy (or rather, the bad guy’s body double. LOL). So it was a tossup. I also got really irritated with Frankie for her crappy attitude toward Will, and going off and kissing the groomsman and then her line about it being the American way for all couples to cheat really ticked me off. I did love the fight in the locker room with the woman from Will’s past! LOL But overall, I’m still enjoying the show, and I think they’re just going to grow and gel as a cast, which will make it even better.

On tonight’s episode, “The English Job,” while investigating suspicious robberies in London, Will hits it off with a sexy British spy, leaving Frankie with some unexpected feelings that she doesn’t know how to process. Meanwhile, Jai competes with Susan over who is more intelligent, and Standish deals with a case of shell shock. Ophelia Lovibond (Elementary) guest stars.

See how Frankie handles her feelings tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

My pick tonight is actually two shows, both family competition shows premiering on BYUtv. First is the comedic game show Battle of the Ages, which pits two multi-generational family teams (grandparent, parent, child/teen) against each other in mental and physical challenges. It looks a little bit like Double Dare but with a few twists and just looks like a lot of fun.

Following that is the premiere of Dinner Takes All, a family cooking competition show hosted by celebrity chef Kelsey Nixon. Like several other shows, one of which is currently airing on Food Network, two teams of family members go head-to-head. In this one, it’s families of five who have to cook their “best Sunday dinner.” Each team uses family recipes to create an entrée, three side dishes, and a dessert while simultaneously playing interactive food-centric games for bonus points. Winning families receive a $10,000 cash prize. So it isn’t just a cooking show. There are fun games as well.

On tonight’s episode of Battle of the Ages, “Sanchez vs. Perkey,” grandparents get hints from pilot Lucky Lindenburger in a race to name the state he’s flying over.

Then on Dinner Takes All, “LoRusso Family vs. Castleberry Family,” the LoRusso and Castleberry families cook meals while playing games to win $10,000.

Catch all the fun tonight on BYUtv starting at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Schooled, Gone, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Single Parents, Whiskey Cavalier, & SEAL Team.

My pick for tonight is the series premiere of Gone on WGN America. As of last month, there’s a chilling statistic in the US, according to WGN America: 83,957 people are missing in the US at any given moment. Chris Noth (Law & Order, Sex and the City), Leven Rambin (The Path, True Detective), & Danny Pino (Law & Order: SVU, Mayans M.C.) star in a missing person’s detective procedural that follows the story of Kit “Kick” Lannigan (Rambin), the survivor of a famous child-abduction case, and Frank Novak (Noth), the FBI agent who rescued her. Years later, Novak is running a special task force dedicated to solving abductions and missing person’s cases, and he recruits Lannigan to join. She’s paired with former Army intelligence officer John Bishop (Pino) and uses her intuitive wit and martial arts skills to solve cases and bring victims home. The show also stars Tracie Thomas (UnREAL, 9-1-1) and Andy Mientus (The Flash, Anger Management).

I love detective procedurals, and I love Chris Noth and Danny Pino. I’ve liked Leven Rambin in everything I’ve seen her in (guest starring spots for me, mostly), so hopefully I’ll enjoy her in this. I hope the show focuses on cases (like a case of the week) more than a dramatic story about Novak or Bishop suddenly being a bad guy. I guess we’ll have to wait and see!

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” FBI Agent Frank Novak seeks out former abductee Kick Lannigan and asks her to join him in a special task force that solves abductions and missing persons cases.

To meet Novak and Lannigan, tune in to WGN America at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chicago Med, The Goldbergs, Schooled, Chicago FIre, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Single Parents, Chicago PD, & a repeat of Whiskey Cavalier.

Tonight, The Magicians returns for its fourth season on Syfy. In the third season, magic had gone away, and everyone lost their powers…except for Julia. The group went on an epic quest to obtain the seven keys and made their way to Blackspire Castle in hopes of restoring magic. Alice was afraid of what she would become when magic returned, so when the group was about to restore magic, she turned on them and destroyed the keys and any hopes of restoring magic. However, Julia was able to use her powers to bind Alice and recreate the keys.

Just as they were about to restore magic, Dean Fogg, Irene, and the Order showed up to stop them – the dean had been working with the library all this time! The library attached a siphon so they could control the flow of magic. Instead of killing the students, Irene used Fogg’s mind-wiping potion on them. As we jump ahead, classes have resumed, magic is being rationed by the library, and Alice (whose mind wasn’t wiped) has been locked up. The rest of the group has no idea who they are or that they have powers. They all have new personalities and professions. However, Eliot does seem to know who he and Quentin are, and we discovered that the monster from the castle has escaped and has taken over Eliot’s body.

Tonight we pick up right where we left off, in a strange new world with lots of “new” characters. Will our group ever get their memories restored and figure out who they really are? How will Alice, the only one with her memories intact, play a role in that? What does this monster inside Eliot want? Do Irene and the Order have a larger plan now that they control magic, and how do Fogg and Brakebills fit into that? It looks like we have another crazy and exciting season ahead, where anything could happen!

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, I got to talk with the cast and creators of the series, where they teased the upcoming season. You can check out my videos at NoReruns.net.

On tonight’s premiere, “A Flock of Lost Birds,” Brian takes a friend out for ice cream; Sam is one week away from retirement.

To catch up with the group of magicians, tune in to Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Schooled, Modern Family, Single Parents, Match Game, Big Brother, The Masked Singer, Schitt’s Creek, MythBusters Jr., Deadly Class, I’m Sorry, and Pure. (Wow, that’s a lot!)
