Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
My favorite new show of the season by far is The Brave. I love the cast and their chemistry, I love the cases and story lines, and overall, it is just the one show that most makes me want to sit and watch ASAP each week – even more so than most of the returning shows! Last week’s episode was a lot of fun. A Russian drone crashed near the Mongolia/China border, and they quickly figured out that it was so technologically advanced that it had been flown over the northwest corner of the US without our notice, only able to realize it after. So Dalton’s team was deployed (they had to parachute in because they were going to be there in secret, not alerting the Mongolian authorities) to get to it before the Russians could retrieve it, in order to allow us to get a sample of the “skin” used so we could update our systems so things using the “skin” would be seen by our radar.
When they got there, they came across the village that the Russians had already beaten them to – killing many and burning out their huts. After gaining the villagers’ trust and helping tend to a wounded young man, they learned where the drone had gone down. Unfortunately, it was on the China side of the border, which meant they had to go in dark – no comms, etc. After a lot of action and Dalton nearly getting caught and shot, they were able to make it back with a good-sized sample of the skin, no worse for the wear. It was pretty awesome. I especially liked how Patricia faked out the Russian guy who was spying on her when she went to meet with her friend – who he assumed was from the Chinese government.
Back early in the season, at the end of the episode, we watched a man drive a truck onto the beach where the team had been hanging out with and playing soccer with a bunch of kids and families. We didn’t hear much in the next episode, although it was mentioned, but I knew that had to come up again. Then in a later episode, the team was up against a bad guy and rather than kill him, they bugged him in order to gain future intel. Both of those things come up again this week in the fall finale. It should be exciting!
On tonight’s episode, “Desperate Times,” after embarking on mission after mission to keep the world safe, the team is confronted with a task that hits close to home. When things go sideways, the only option is to risk one of their own for their final shot to settle the personal score.
See if the entire team makes it out alive tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Dancing with the Stars, Man With a Plan, Holiday Baking Championship, Superior Donuts, 9JKL, Christmas Cookie Challenge, & Scorpion.
