Kyle’s Choice

thecatchsmallTonight, ABC adds another Shondaland series to its Thursday-night lineup: The Catch. Alice Vaughan (Mireille Enos, The Killing) runs one of LA’s top private investigation firms, with extremely rich and powerful clients. However, things get personal when her fiancé Benjamin Jones (Peter Krause, Parenthood, Six Feet Under) cons her out of millions. She begins a thrilling cat-and-mouse game of payback and revenge, with the assistance of her partner Valerie Anderson (Rose Rollins, Bosch), resourceful PI Danny Yoon (Jay Hayden, Battleground), and newest/youngest member of the firm, hacker/in-house counsel Sophie Novak (Elvy Yost, Oldboy). Meanwhile, FBI Agent Jules Dao (Jacky Ido, Inglorious Basterds) is also after Jones and his team – mastermind Margot Bishop (Sonya Walger, Parenthood) and partner-in-crime Reginald Lennox III (Alimi Ballard, CSI).

I enjoyed tonight’s premiere way more than I expected to. It has a very slick, fast-paced style, with lots of split-screen action and makes great use of music. While Shonda Rhimes is an executive producer, I’m not sure how involved she is in the actual show – it didn’t feel like a typical Shondaland show in the writing. In either case, I’m looking forward to checking out more of this fun thriller, seeing how it plays out from week to week and if they can keep up the same kind of caper fun and excitement.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Pilot,” Alice is conned out of millions by her fiancé and begins her mission to get payback in the series premiere of this drama about a top-notch private investigator who experiences life from her clients’ perspectives when she becomes the victim of fraud.

See how Alice gets conned tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, You, Me and the Apocalypse, Recipe for Deception, and 60 Days In.
