Last week’s The Big Bang Theory was really great. Sheldon was stressing big-time as he tried to plan the perfect wedding, starting with the wedding date. He couldn’t settle on one because everything he tried turned out to be the birth or death date of a famous scientist, a “con” of some sort, or something similar. It was so bad that he was working it out through his subconscious while he slept, becoming completely unlike himself – laid-back, unopinionated, etc. And when he showed up at home looking like something wet the cat dragged in after pulling it through the mud, he just looked pitiful. In the end, he agreed gratefully to let Amy take control – again unlike him but showing his growth through the series. The other story line was Bernie’s new coworker, who both Raj and Stuart wanted to pair up with. Raj’s thought that he should get her because they were both Indian was hysterical, but poor Stuart is just…well, pitiful. In the end, they both acted like asses and neither got the girl. Surprise, surprise. LOL

On tonight’s episode, “The Explosion Implosion,” Wolowitz and Sheldon bond when they drive to the desert to shoot off a model rocket. Also, when Leonard’s mom, Beverly (Christine Baranski), finds a new best friend in Penny, it rubs Leonard the wrong way.

Find out why Leonard gets upset tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Dancing with the Stars, 9JKL, The Gifted, Halloween Baking Championship, Halloween Wars, Scorpion, & The Brave.

I think my favorite pilot that I got to watch over the summer was NBC’s The Brave, which is why it’s my first pick tonight. Avi Nir, an executive producer of Homeland, is also the executive producer of this one, and even though I didn’t watch Homeland, I know that at least the first handful of seasons it was very popular and a lot of people considered it a great show. So I have high hopes for this one as well. Considering it’s a procedural about the “complex world of America’s elite undercover military heroes,” (in NBC’s words), it’s going to be right up my alley. Also, trust me when I say you don’t want to miss a minute of the action…including the very last minute of the episode!

Anne Heche plays D.I.A. Deputy Director Patricia Campbell. She and her team of analysts in Washington, D.C., have at the fingertips the world’s most advanced surveillance technology. Adam Dalton, played by Mike Vogel (Under the Dome) leads a Special Ops squad of highly trained undercover specialists. Their unbreakable bond and commitment to freedom helps them to save the lives of innocent people and execute missions in some of the most dangerous places in the world. It also stars Tate Ellington (Noah Morgenthau), Demetrius Grosse (Ezekiel “Preach” Carter), Natacha Karam (Jasmine “Jaz” Khan), Noah Mills (Joseph “McG” McGuire), Sofia Pernas (Hannah Rivera), and Hadi Tabbal (Amir Al-Raisani).

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” when American doctor Kimberley Wells (guest star Alix Wilton-Regan) gets kidnapped by a group with terrorist ties, Captain Adam Dalton and his squad must take action and stop at nothing to save her. Across the world, D.I.A. Deputy Director Patricia Campbell and her team of analysts guide Dalton along the way through as the group learns that Wells’s disappearance might have ties to something that could be catastrophic.

Don’t miss the exciting premiere tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

We’re at the end of season 10 of The Big Bang Theory. It’s been a big year for the characters, from their relationships to the work the boys did for the military. One big change was Sheldon moving out of the apartment and living with Amy across the hall in Penny’s old place. Unfortunately, now Sheldon is on his own for the summer, since last week, Amy left to go to Princeton for a position as a visiting researcher. I was amazed at how maturely Sheldon handled it. Amy was excited to go but was reluctant about leaving him, but together they decided it was something she couldn’t pass up. Of course, we’ll see how well that works out when he’s either living on his own or shacking up with Leonard and Penny again!

Also last week, Sheldon, Leonard, and Howard showed up at the lab, only to find it completely empty. The military had gotten what they wanted from the boys and taken control of the project with no warning. My favorite part of the episode, though, had to be when they got back to the apartment building, walked into an empty apartment, and thought they’d been wiped out completely, that the military was erasing their lives. Come to find out they were just on the wrong floor. Too funny that the apartment looked exactly like theirs without stuff in it! The whole season’s been fun, and I’m sad to see it end, but we have a lot more of the show coming over the next couple of years, so there’s something to look forward to!

On tonight’s episode, “The Long Distance Dissonance,” the gang is concerned when Sheldon’s former admirer, Dr. Ramona Nowitzki (guest star Riki Lindhome), resurfaces while Amy is away at Princeton.

Find out how Sheldon reacts to Ramon’s reappearance tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef: Junior, Chicago Med, Beat Bobby Flay, Farmers’ Market Flip, & Impractical Jokers.

“In the not-too-distant future, next Sunday A.D., there was a guy named Joel, not too different than you or me…”

Mystery Science Theater 3000 aired from 1988 to 1999, immediately becoming a cult hit. My husband was a HUGE fan. Joel Robinson (played by show creator Joel Hodgson) was shot into space and forced to watch bad movies while a mad scientist and his crony monitored his mind. Joel built some lovable robot sidekicks to help him keep his sanity. What made it seriously unique was just the way the characters watched the movies and the commentary we got to watch/listen to. Really funny stuff.

In 2015, fans of the series donated to a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign to reboot the show for a brand new, 14-episode season. Original creator Joel Hodgson will be joined by comedian Jonah Ray (also known as Jonah Heston) as the new host and Felicia Day (Geek & Sundry) as “Kinga Forrester.”

If you’ve never seen the show before, Netflix has Season One up if you’re interested!

The complete new season comes out on Netflix tonight at 3:01AM/2:01AMc.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, MasterChef: Junior, Trial & Error, The Great Indoors, Chicago Med, The Amazing Race, Beat Bobby Flay, & Impractical Jokers.

Tonight, The Amazing Race returns to CBS as 22 new contestants start their adventure around the globe in hopes of taking home the $1M prize. However, for this 29th season, there is a big twist: all eleven teams will be comprised of complete strangers! This race is already difficult enough when you can plan ahead for your partner’s strengths and weaknesses, but meeting your teammate on the starting mat adds even more stress to the game! A while back there was a season where half the teams were “blind dates,” and it actually worked out surprisingly well for the teams that just met. It will be interesting to see if that’s the case again. Will the lack of a history to bicker about actually help these newly formed teams? At least there isn’t necessarily a forced pretense of a love connection between the teammates this time around.

On tonight’s premiere, “We’re Coming for You, Phil!” twenty-two strangers meet at the starting line in Los Angeles and then pair up to form eleven teams who then fly to the first destination: Panama City.

Meet the new teams tonight on CBS at 10/9c.
