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.

Tonight is the conclusion of the 5-episode “Sanctuary City” arc on Major Crimes. It’s been an eventful arc so far with surprises happening every episode. Last week, we not only found out Sharon had been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy (and I loved how she turned Rusty’s question about what he can do to help into him agreeing to a protection detail! LOL), but Lucas’s drug-addicted father was found dead in his office. Everyone believes it was an overdose. Was it self-inflicted – and if so, then on purpose or accident? Was it murder? I think the other two doctors or whoever they are in his practice have been hiding something, so…maybe it was them? And we learned from the remaining two boys that Lucas had taken them to a limo and then they’d been sprayed with something that knocked them out and made their throats hurt, and then they woke in Mexico. Chloroform was found on their clothes, so maybe? But they were also found with opioids in their bags in Mexico, so…I’m still as confused as ever.

Tonight wraps up this arc, thank goodness. It’s been a fun and interesting case, but I honestly have no idea what the truth is, and I’m ready to move on!

On tonight’s episode, “Sanctuary City: Part 5,” as the case of the St. Joseph’s Three leads to its unexpected conclusion, Commander Sharon Raydor attempts to balance the case, her family arriving, and her fast approaching wedding to Lt. Andy Flynn.

Find out the truth to all the unanswered questions tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, Chopped, MasterChef Canada, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, & Chicago Med.

Happy Halloween! Have a safe & fun holiday, from all of us here at TV Is My Pacifier!

I’m of mixed emotions about tonight’s Major Crimes season premiere. I’m excited because it’s back and it promises to be another great season…but I’m also sad because it’s the final season. After 7 seasons of The Closer and now starting the 6th season of Major Crimes, these characters couldn’t feel more like family if they tried. I’ll miss them all – but Provenza and Flynn will always have a spot on my favorite characters of all-time list.

When we last left off six months ago (our time – I have no idea how long it’ll have been on the show…), the squad was chasing the bomber who was blowing up people in a case of romance gone bad. He then began targeting the Major Crimes squad…finally ending up causing an explosion that took out their entire squad room. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem like anyone was hurt, and they got the guy. But this means we come back tonight to a whole new set, which should be a lot of fun, especially since this is the last season of the show. Phillip Stroh is back this season, and in December the show will hit its 100th episode just before the series finale in January. So it’s going to be an action-packed, fun final season, and I can’t wait to get started tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Sanctuary City, Pt 1,” when three fifteen-year-old boys vanish from a Catholic school field trip, new Asst. Chief Mason orders Major Crimes to treat their disappearance as a critical missing. Meanwhile, Sharon receives more evidence that Phillip Stroh may be returning to Los Angeles.

See if the boys can be found safe tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRIng NCIS, Impractical Jokers, The Little Couple, MasterChef Canada, The Mayor, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Tonight, TNT kicks off a double-episode premiere of the new series Will, which follows the early adventures of William Shakespeare (Laurie Davidson) as he tries to make his way as a playwright in 16th century London. As the series opens, Will leaves his wife and young children back home in the country to go to London to try to sell his plays. His wife is skeptical that anyone would want to buy his plays, but Will wants to see if there is a fortune to be made in his writings. The London theatre crowds seem to be getting bored with the same old tired tropes, and Will sees an opportunity to step in, but some don’t appreciate the competition. Will is used to the slower life of the country, and in the city he becomes a bit wide-eyed, finding himself the target of both thieves and temptations. This is also a dangerous place for him — the Protestants are torturing and killing the Catholics on sight, so Shakespeare must keep his religion a secret. The series also stars Olivia DeJonge, Ewen Bremner, Colm Meaney, Mattias Inwood (The Shannara Chronicles), Jamie Campbell Bower, William Houston, Lukas Rolfe, Max Bennett, and Jasmin Savoy Brown.

While I wasn’t blown away by tonight’s premiere, it did show some promise. It sets up several different threads to explore over the course of the season. Not only does the series look at what inspired Shakespeare to write some of his most famous plays, but it also explores the political and social climate at the time. The execution of the series kind of reminded me of A Knight’s Tale. It blends a modern soundtrack with a not-so-modern setting.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Play’s the Thing,” in 1589, a time of religious turmoil in England, Will Shakespeare arrives from the small town of Stratford to the wild streets of London with little more than a dream and a treacherous letter. Then on the second episode, “Cowards Die Many Times,” Will is racked with guilt over the arrest of the rival playwright, Baxter, and he makes a dangerous confession to the beautiful and rebellious Alice. The future of the theatre is threatened when the crowd-pleasing actor, Kemp, is tempted by another playhouse.

Go back in time to the 1600s tonight on TNT starting at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Superhuman & Dessert Games.

I know… What we don’t need is another reality competition show – especially singing or dancing. But World of Dance is a little bit different in how the competition works, and the first episode – which I’ve seen – at least, is a lot of fun. There are three divisions to the competition: Junior (any size act, 17 years old & under), Upper (groups of 1-4, 18 years old & over), & Team (groups of 5+ dancers, all 18 years old & over). There’s no limit to the kind of dancing, from hip-hop, ballet, ballroom, stomping, & more. The judges use a point system created by the dance brand World of Dance (which is in partnership with the show and obviously where the name for the show itself came from), in which they score performance, technique, choreography, creativity, and presentation. In the first four rounds, dancers compete within their division, but in the fifth and final, the World Final round, the winner from each division will compete against each other for the grand prize of $1 million and the title “Best in the World.”

So the competition itself is a little bit different and going to be very fun. Jennifer Lopez, NE-YO, and Derek Hough (mega-winner pro dancer from Dancing with the Stars) will be at the judges’ table, with Jenna Dewan Tatum set as host/mentor. I actually really enjoyed all three in the premiere. They all have good, constructive criticism and seem to know what they’re talking about, which doesn’t always happen on some competition shows. All in all, I have hopes that the judges, along with how they score the dancers and how the dancers are split into divisions will make this an enjoyable series.

On tonight’s episode, “The Qualifiers 1,” elite dance acts from all ages and dance genres enter the arena to showcase their artistry, precision, and athleticism to move forward in the competition.

Check out the start of this new competition series tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Got Talent, Chopped Junior, Prison Break, & Chopped.
