Kyle’s Choice

timeless1031smallI’ve been really enjoying NBC’s fun time-travel series, Timeless. Last week the gang headed to Nazi Germany, where they had to stop Flynn from giving Wernher von Braun, the Father of Rocket Science, to the Soviets. Along the way the team ran into James Bond author Ian Fleming, who took a liking to Lucy. And when the group returned, they were excited to discover that there was a brand “new” Sean Connery Bond film based on their adventure! Meanwhile Flynn was able to use a nuke to create a long-lasting battery for his ship, which may make it more difficult for the team to keep up with him and track his location.

What I really enjoy about this show is its blend of action, mystery, history, and fun. Each week we get some tiny clues as to the larger mission Flynn is on and how Lucy is a part of that. I don’t know how they are ever going to fix history, as Flynn keeps causing small things to change here and there – though most of them seem to affect Lucy the most.

On tonight’s episode, “The Alamo,” the team gets stranded at the Battle of the Alamo, a pivotal event in the Texas Revolution. They learn about trust and sacrifice as they face insurmountable odds and no hope of rescue.

See what gets turned around in history tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Man With a Plan, Gotham, Lucifer, Supergirl, Jane the Virgin, and People of Earth.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/3/16

Jenny’s Choice #1

conviction103smallTonight is another new drama that I’m excited to see: ABC’s Conviction. Hayley Atwell (Marvel’s Agent Carter) plays lawyer and former First Daughter Hayes Morrison, is caught using drugs and is offered a job from her sexy nemesis, NY District Attorney Conner Wallace (played by CSI: New York alum, Eddie Cahill). If she works with his team at the new Conviction Integrity Unit, which reexamines cases where there is a credible suspicion of wrongful conviction, she’ll avoid jail time and will avoid hurting her mother’s Senate campaign. She’s a party girl with a privileged upbringing who is offered a chance to turn her life around.

I was really excited about this show when I saw the trailer. I haven’t seen the pilot, so I have no idea if it’ll be any good or not, but I love the premise, and I love the cast. I didn’t watch Agent Carter, but Hayley Atwell is adorable and I’ve heard she was great in that. Eddie Cahill was one of my favs on CSI: New York, and the others are good too: Daniel Franzese (Looking & Recovery Road), Emily Kinney (The Walking Dead), Manny Montana (whom I recognize from Graceland), not to mention Merrin Dungey (Alias, Once Upon a Time) and Shawn Ashmore (The Following).

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” after joining the Conviction Integrity Unit, Hayes pushes the team to consider the case of Odell Dwyer, a handsome former high school football player who has been in prison for eight years for murdering his girlfriend.

Follow the leads tonight on ABC at 10/9c.
