A couple weeks ago, TBS added the fun new animated sci-fi series Final Space to its Monday night lineup. Gary has spent the last 5 years alone on a prison ship Galaxy One for impersonating a captain. Gary was starting to go stir crazy with only the ship’s computer and maintenance robots to keep him company. However, that all changed when a mysterious green alien, whom Gary named Mooncake, found its way on board. Despite its friendly looks, Mooncake is actually a planet-destroying super weapon that is being hunted down by the evil Lord Commander. When his ship came under attack, Gary captured and befriended a cat-like bounty hunter named Avocato.

In last week’s episode, Gary and Avocato tracked down a bounty hunter named Terk, in order to stop him from telling Lord Commander about Mooncake’s whereabouts. However, Terk used Avocato’s missing son as bait to lure them into a trap. They came face-to-face with the Lord Commander but managed to get away, though Gary’s arm was torn off in the process. Once they got back to the ship, Kevin was fitted with a robotic arm. Meanwhile, on Earth, Quinn found evidence that a cosmic disaster—a tear in space-time—may have caused the Imperium T3 to crash, but her superiors refused to listen to her, so she decided to take things into her own hand and set off into space in a stolen ship. And back on the Galaxy One, KVN and Mooncake received a visit from a mysterious woman named Nightfall, who looked an awful lot like Quinn.

TBS has been turning out some great comedies lately. I’m really enjoying this serialized space adventure. It is both action-packed and filled with lots of adult humor. The show has fun characters, an interesting ongoing story/mystery, and each episode ends with some new twist or cliffhanger. This show will make a great binge once the entire season is over, but I’m also enjoying it week-to-week. If you haven’t yet started watching, the first three episodes are available to binge on TBS’s app/website.

On tonight’s episode, “Chapter Three,” Gary tries to hide Mooncake safely away on the planet Yarno; Gary and Avocato are trapped in a terrifying mind-puzzle; Mooncake is forced to fight in a combat arena called the Deathcropolis; Quinn investigates the gravitational disturbance.

See the crazy space fun tonight on TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Good Doctor, Good Girls, The Resident, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, iZombie, UnREAL, and The Alienist.

I am very happy that we are getting a new episode of The Good Doctor before so many shows go on break for the Olympics. This show continues to push the boundaries of what is expected from a medical show, and I love the way it is changing minds about what is normal.

Last episode, Shaun insisted that his patient was lying about how she got her burns and was sure that she was actually a terrorist. It turns out he was right. She was lying, but she wasn’t a terrorist. She was making perfume. They managed to save the patient, and once again Shaun proved he is learning more about people every day.

On tonight’s episode, “She,” Shaun learns that his young cancer patient identifies as a girl while being biologically male. He must quickly learn to understand his patient, her medical needs, and how to work with her family.

To see if Shaun can once again adapt for the sake of his patient, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Scorpion, Lucifer, The Wall, Man With a Plan, and The Resident.

A couple months ago, HBO and director Stephen Soderbergh teamed up to produce the Mosaic app, which provides a unique interactive story experience on iOS and Android devices. The mobile app allows users to interact with the cinematic murder mystery by selecting which character’s perspective to follow at various points in the story. Soderbergh has now taken the footage that was shot for this joint venture and has edited it into a more traditional, linear TV format. The 6-part Mosaic limited series will air on HBO across the next five nights.

The psychological thriller tells a story of love and murder in a small town, where each character has his or her own version of the events to tell. As the series opens, popular children’s book author/illustrator Olivia Lake (Sharon Stone, Agent X, Basic Instinct) crosses paths with potential suitor Eric (Frederick Weller, Banshee, In Plain Sight) and handyman/aspiring artist Joel (Garrett Hedlund, TRON: Legacy). The series also stars Jennifer Ferrin (Time After Time, Falling Water), Beau Bridges (Bloodline), Paul Reubens (aka Pee-wee Herman), Devin Ratray (The Tick), James Ransone (Bosch), Jeremy Bobb (Godless, The Knick), Michael Cerveris (Gotham, Fringe), and Maya Kazan (Sleepy Hollow, The Knick).

I was a huge fan of Soderbergh’s previous cable series, The Knick, and so I’m really looking forward to seeing his latest work. Mosaic has a stellar cast, and I’m always down for a good murder mystery! I have already set my season pass to check out this limited series.

On tonight’s premiere, “Meet Olivia Lake,” children’s author Olivia Lake attends a lavish party, during which she notices handsome bartender Joel and offers him a place to live; wealthy financier Michael O’Connor enlists a con man to convince Olivia to sell her picturesque property.

Catch the series premiere tonight on HBO at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Good Doctor, Better Late Than Never, The Resident, Supergirl, and The Alienist.

Last week, we finally saw the resolution to the winter finale on The Brave, when Jaz was captured by the bad guys at the hotel in Tehran. Of course the team didn’t abandon her. They figured out where she was being held, but because there was no way to get in to get her, they decided to have Patricia leak the fact that Jaz was indeed a US spy. Then when the bad guys moved her to where they would publicly execute her, the team stopped the van, killed the bad guys, and rescued Jaz. Unfortunately, when the border crossing they thought would be empty was actually heavily guarded, Hossein sacrificed himself, thereby letting the team cross safely.

Patricia is in big trouble… It’s quite illegal to give out the names of US operatives, and even though she did it to save Jaz, and it did exactly what they’d hoped, she’s still in trouble. I haven’t heard about Anne Heche leaving the show, though, so she can’t be out that long… Of course, the show has only been given 13 episodes, meaning tonight’s plus two more, so there isn’t much left for her to be in or out of unless they renew it for season two, which we’re still waiting to hear. This is such a great, fun show, and it needs all the eyeballs it can get, so please, please tune in tonight, and share the word!

On tonight’s episode, “Grounded,” with Patricia out of commission, Noah is at the helm of the D.I.A. when FARC revolutionaries take control of a flight in Colombia. When negotiations mean life or death for the passengers on board, Hannah must make her return to the field.

See how it goes with Noah in charge and Hannah back in the field tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Man With a Plan, Kids Baking Championship, Superior Donuts, 9JKL, & Scorpion.

It’s been too long (November 20!) since we last saw a new episode of The Brave, so let me catch you up in case you somehow have forgotten! The team learned the name of the man behind the truck bombing on the beach at the end of the series premiere: Fahim Jarif, an ongoing & known threat to the US and world security. The team went on the first mission we’ve seen of them meant for one purpose only…to track and kill a specific human being. So Dalton and team went to Tehran, Iran, where Jarif was living and working without worry about being stopped. Things didn’t go as planned at all…and the worst happened. Jaz was able to go undercover as the sister of a “friend” of Jarif’s and met with him. She was supposed to poison him, but a phone call from “her brother” made Jarif realize she wasn’t who she was pretending to be, so a fight ensued and she strangled him. The team worked to get her out of the hotel she and Jarif had met in, but Jaz was captured just before jumping out of the third-floor window. Then the screen went black. What a cliffhanger! Any of the US operatives captured in Iran would’ve been bad, but being a woman? That’s even worse. Especially since they aren’t supposed to even be there, which means they’re on their own and can’t expect the US to rescue Jaz or any of them.

So will the team just leave her there? If not, how will they rescue her…and if they do, will everyone survive? I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and it’s a great resolution to the huge cliffhanger. I’m so glad the show is back tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Desperate Measures,” Dalton and what remains of his team try to escape with their lives as they process a devastating loss. Meanwhile in D.C., Patricia will stop at nothing to make things right, even if it means putting her career at risk.

To see if the team can rescue Jaz, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Kids Baking Championship.
