Last week was the 9-1-1 season premiere we should have gotten. Granted, it would have had to run long because they had to set it up, which is why we got the premiere we did, but boy, did the action they promised us deliver. At the end of the premiere, Buck was at the pier with little Christopher, when he realized the water had all been sucked out to sea and was rushing back to land, forming a tsunami, thus bringing us to last week’s episode. While Buck was having fun at the pier with Christopher, Athena and her daughter, May, were spending time together getting manis and pedis. Because there was so much action, there’s not enough time her to do a full recap. But Buck proved how much he’s grown and how quick-thinking he is by trying to save as many people as he could, piling them all up on top of the firetruck (having been driven by the fire crew stuck now on the Ferris wheel). Unfortunately, when he was trying to rescue a few more who were floating (sort of…) by, Christopher yet again went into the water, ending the episode. Elsewhere, Athena and May got caught up in a huge traffic pileup after the tsunami caused some issues with the power lines and traffic lights. They were okay, but a woman was pretty badly injured, and May was left to handle it on her own when a downed power line cut her off from her mom, who finally was able to get rescue crews and a power guy to the location to turn off the power and rescue the woman.

Possibly the saddest, most moving story line of them all, though, was Maddie, who was on the phone with a young man trapped in his attic, with the water rising. Unfortunately, no matter what they tried, the young man drowned while on the phone with her. It was so sad, and Maddie broke down. But then her supervisor asks her to help triage – not the callers but the 9-1-1 personnel themselves, since more would be handling calls like Maddie herself had. Horrifying for all those involved, and it really makes you think of that end of things when tragedies hit.

Meanwhile, the rest of our gang was out on boats to help find & rescue people, not knowing that Buck and Christopher were in horrible danger…which leads us to tonight’s episode. They obviously can’t kill off the kid. This isn’t Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead here. LOL But that doesn’t mean we won’t get a lot of drama on tonight’s conclusion!!

On tonight’s episode, “The Searchers,” Athena, Maddie, Bobby and the 118 races to save lives after a massive tsunami hits the Santa Monica Pier and Buck fears the worst when Christopher goes missing. Rhonda Rousey guest stars.

See if Buck can find Christopher in time tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Bob Hearts Abishola, All Rise, Halloween Baking Championship, Prodigal Son, & Halloween Cake-Off.

The return of the “Arrowverse” continues tonight when the flagship show, which launched it all, returns for Arrow season seven. After a long-winding series of battles and betrayals, last year’s finale found Team Arrow storming Star City Police Department in pursuit of the evil mastermind Diaz. While the FBI, Arrow, and all his active teammates beat the crap out of the goons occupying the building, Diaz managed to escape. Fortunately they still had Oliver’s old Bratva pal Anatoli Knyazev in custody, and he gave up Diaz’s location for immunity on some charges. It turned out to be a trap though, and Maddog almost died!

Police Chief Lance cut a deal with Diaz after that, desperate to get Black Siren – his daughter’s doppelgänger from Earth2 – back from the gangsters alive. He was ready to order the FBI out of the investigation but only if Diaz showed him proof the alternate Laurel was alive. Since Lance had a pacemaker in his heart, Felicity was able to track him, and they sent in a rescue team. During this action, there were hints that Oliver cut some secret deal with the FBI. During the rescue, Diaz gut-shot Lance, bringing him near to death. Artemis saved Black Siren & Lance both, though. She also blasted Diaz off a roof into the river while he was fighting Oliver.

While Captain Lance was in surgery, his daughters from alternate worlds met each other. The exchange was cold, as they’re both kinda cold-hearted killers. Sadly Lance died. Even worse, Oliver had to admit that he was the real Green Arrow and then surrendered into FBI custody. He was sent to a SuperMax prison. That’s the deal he cut, in exchange for help from the FBI against Diaz. In the public confession speech, he also encouraged his team to remain vigilant in their fight to keep the city safe. The very last scene of the season was Oliver entering prison.

I read some of Stephen Amell’s recent interviews, and from what I gather, Oliver “Green Arrow” Queen, whom Amell plays in the series, will be in prison for a much longer time than fans may be expecting. This signals that the show runners may have adapted a Green Arrow movie script, which was based on Oliver having to face old enemies in a Super Max prison into the general arc of Arrow season seven. Tonight is just the start though, and I can’t wait to see where the show goes, as long as Felicity is in it!! Also: Bring back Ragman!!!

On tonight’s episode, “Inmate 4587,” at Slabside Maximum Security Prison, Oliver is determined to keep a low profile to shorten his sentence; Oliver is tested when he runs into old foes; Diggle and Dinah have taken on new jobs and left their costumes behind.

See how Oliver is handling prison tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

Other than this premiere, I’ll also be watching an episode of my The Man In The High Castle slow binge that has been happening for a week.

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.
