It’s taking some time for me to fully like all the characters on the new Whiskey Cavalier. I go back and forth on most of them, depending on the episode. Like last week, I got almost as irritated with Standish as Jai did. He was being pretty disrespectful, having all his trash and crap lying around in other people’s space. I’m no neat freak, but dang. Then again, Standish did well getting the guard to take in the champagne to the bad guy (or rather, the bad guy’s body double. LOL). So it was a tossup. I also got really irritated with Frankie for her crappy attitude toward Will, and going off and kissing the groomsman and then her line about it being the American way for all couples to cheat really ticked me off. I did love the fight in the locker room with the woman from Will’s past! LOL But overall, I’m still enjoying the show, and I think they’re just going to grow and gel as a cast, which will make it even better.

On tonight’s episode, “The English Job,” while investigating suspicious robberies in London, Will hits it off with a sexy British spy, leaving Frankie with some unexpected feelings that she doesn’t know how to process. Meanwhile, Jai competes with Susan over who is more intelligent, and Standish deals with a case of shell shock. Ophelia Lovibond (Elementary) guest stars.

See how Frankie handles her feelings tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

Tonight, TNT kicks off the new limited series I Am the Night, a noir thriller set in 1965 Los Angeles and inspired by true events. After making a startling discovery that her mother lied to her about her lineage, naive teenager Fauna Hodel (India Isley, The Secret Life of the American Teenager) decides to head from Reno, Nevada into Los Angeles, in search of her grandfather George (Jefferson Mays, Law & Order: SVU) she never knew about. However, Fauna’s mother had good reason to keep her daughter in the dark, as there is a deadly mystery surrounding George Hodel. Meanwhile, former marine-turned-hack reporter Jay Singletary (Chris Pine) finds himself looking into the gruesome murder of a young woman. At age 18, Singletary had a promising career as a full-time reporter for the LA Times, but he messed up and told a story he shouldn’t have, which ruined his career. This story still haunts him years later and has left him a shell of the man he used to be: depressed, taking drugs, having thoughts of suicide, and doing grunt work for the LA Examiner. The subject of that fateful article was George Hodel, so it’s only a matter of time before Fauna and Singletary cross paths.

I checked out tonight’s premiere, and it’s a bit of a slow burn but in a good way. The pilot establishes the characters, poses a lot of questions, and whets the appetite for the larger mystery to come. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing more of the series and seeing how this mystery plays out. I’ve seen the trailer for this miniseries at least a half-dozen times in the theater, and so I’ve been anxious to see the show and learn how the famous unsolved 1947 Black Dahlia murder plays into the story.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” Fauna Hodel, a teenage girl who is given away at birth and grows up outside of Reno, Nev., makes a discovery that leads her to question everything about her origin; as Fauna begins to investigate the secrets of her past, she meets a ruined reporter.

Don’t miss the beginning of the story tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be recording The Good Doctor, Big Brother, Manifest, The Resident, The Passage, and Arrow.

Tonight, TNT’s family crime drama Animal Kingdom returns for its third season. Last season, the guys started to wonder why they were doing all the work and their mother, Smurf, was taking a huge cut, so they decided to do things on their own. This left J in the middle – he felt loyalty to both his uncles and his grandmother. Meanwhile, Baz was convinced that it was Smurf who killed his wife, so he planted evidence and arranged for Smurf to get arrested for another murder. He also stole all of the money that Smurf had been hiding from her sons and stashed it behind the walls of his home. While in prison, Smurf gave J the power of attorney over her affairs, as he was the only one she trusted. As the season ended, Baz and his girlfriend Lucy were about to take a trip to Mexico when someone approached their truck and put four bullets through the windshield and into Baz. As Baz lay on the ground bleeding out, Lucy ran away and cleared out all of the hidden money.

Will Baz survive his attack, and who arranged the hit? Did Lucy do it to get her hands on the money, and where did she move it to? Did Smurf arrange this as retaliation from jail? After all, Baz is her adopted son, while the others are all blood relatives. Did Pope, Craig, or Deran arrange the hit on their brother? Or was J responsible for getting the man he thinks might be his father shot? Who will step up to be the new leader of the group if Baz is out of commission? And how will Smurf manage to get herself out of prison? Also, Denis Leary joins the cast for season three, so I’m looking forward to seeing what awaits the Cody crime family this season!

On tonight’s premiere, “The Killing,” Baz fights for his life as the Cody boys figure out their next move in the aftermath of the shooting; Smurf gets some surprising news in jail and fields an offer from Pearce.

Catch up with life with the Codys tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Arrested Development, Legion, Chrisley Knows Best, and 100 Code.

I’m enjoying this second story arc of the final season of Major Crimes more than I did the first, which seemed to drag out forever. Maybe because so far we’ve only had two episodes and I know we wrap this one up tonight with the double ep. Last week, another woman who was suing the Hooters (I mean Tackles… LOL) guy was murdered. Everyone thought she’d committed suicide because she’d been depressed. Turned out she’d been drugged and raped, and although the squad thinks the Tackles guy did it, she didn’t tell anyone who it was, so they have no proof. They did figure out that the SA beside the cities in the lawyer’s notes didn’t stand for what they thought it did. Instead, it stood for sexual assault. They believe that’s why the attorney was killed, because she was finding other victims and was going to go after the Tackles guy for the rapes, not just the lawsuit that was public knowledge. Of course, now they have to prove it.

Then there were the B stories… Sharon had another health scare, where she swooned and nearly went down at the crime scene. In the end, she and Andy walked in to see another specialist. Eek. And Rusty gave Gus the check and letter of recommendation from his former boss, but Gus didn’t react how Rusty thought he would. There was a lot of yelling, etc. And Gus finally admitted that they’d only slept together twice. Personally, I don’t think Gus was fired because he slept with the boss. I think he got fired because after he slept with him, he felt guilty and started performing badly at work, which then got him fired. But I guess we’ll see! We get two episodes tonight to wrap up the Tackles story, but I’m sure we’ll see some of Sharon’s health and the Rusty/Gus saga as well!

On tonight’s first episode, “Conspiracy Theory, Pt 3,” while working two seemingly connected murders, the division suddenly uncovers a series of sexual assaults against servers from Tackles. As a new theory about the killer gathers steam, however, an unexpected twist throws Major Crimes off course and Sharon off-balance.

Then in the second episode, “Conspiracy Theory, Pt 4,” Sharon must make decisions related to her ongoing health problems while arriving at the solution of a series of murders and sexual assaults.

To learn the outcome of the investigation, tune in to TNT starting at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Married at First Sight: Jamie and Doug Plus One & Chopped.

Last season of The Librarians was tense, with both DOSA and Apep going against the Librarians – DOSA wanted the Library, while Apep just wanted to cause chaos. Baird was working with DOSA, or so we thought, but in the end, it turned out that she and Flynn had their own plan to secure the Library. And it turned out to be a good thing, since the woman in charge accidentally let loose Apep once again. Thankfully they took care of Apep and convinced DOSA that they weren’t equipped to handle the care of the Library and to leave it in the hands of Flynn, Baird, Jenkins, & the Librarians.

Tonight is the season premiere, so it’ll be interesting to see where they go from there. The “big bad” is gone, but I’m sure there will be another one. Regardless, I love this show and can’t wait for the new season, starting with the two-episode premiere.

On tonight’s first episode, “…and the Dark Secret,” when a secret sect of the Vatican Church unearths an ancient map detailing the locations of the four cornerstones of the Library of Alexandria (the original Library), it’s up to Flynn and the Librarians – with the help of an unexpected ally – to stop them before the stones can be used to destroy the Library.

Then on the second episode, “and the Steal of Fortune,” when people begin getting hurt in the unluckiest of ways, the Librarians are led to a casino where the owner appears to possess an artifact capable of stealing people’s luck. Despite falling under the bad luck curse themselves, the Librarians must turn the tables before the plague of bad fortune spreads to the wider world.

See how they save the Library tonight on TNT starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Iron Chef Showdown, Modern Family, & American Housewife.
