Tonight, one of the best comedies of the last two years returns when The Good Place airs on NBC at 8pm. It’s a special hour of the show, which follows the afterlife of 4 morally dubious humans, one demon torment architect, & the lovely and polite robotic helper Janet. In case you forgot what happened at the end of last year’s rollercoaster ride of a season, let me remind you! After escaping from the fake “Good Place” to the central city that all angels, demons, and judges live in, the human stars Elanor, Chidi, Jason & Tahani get their moment before Judge Gen.

Played by Maya Rudolph, the judge was ready to have them all sent to “limbo’ style” Medium Places until a more formal decision could be made. Michael made an impassioned speech on behalf of the humans, and instead of the Medium Place, they instead re-inserted them all back into life, at the moment of death. They saved them all with a slight “push” to prevent their disastrous deaths. Struck by her near-death experience, Elanor decided to get her shit together. She quit her job and started working soliciting money for saving the environment. She even became a vegetarian. But after a half year, she grew bored of being good and opted for a Taylor Spliffed concert instead of work. (Yes, that’s a reggae band that covers Taylor Swift songs!)

Michael, who was monitoring them all, sneaked down to Earth to leave her a hint that led her to Chidi. After a night drinking together, Michael asked her, “What do we owe each other?” which led her to a YouTube video of Chidi lecturing on ethics & morality. And like totally sane people do, she tracked him down and flew to Australia to meet him. Cue season three!

On tonight’s episode, “Everything is Bonzer,” Michael intervenes in the near-death accidents of Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani, and Jason on Earth, in hopes that a second chance at life allows them to become better versions of themselves.

Catch up with the gang tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching the premiere of the Murphy Brown reboot, because that’s just weird.

Poor Otis on Chicago Fire. Boden went to him and offered him a (temporary) job of helping in admin at the station house while he recovers. He showed up to work, and it looked like it would be fine…and then the team got a call-out, and he had to wistfully watch as they left the building without him. He kind of rocked it, though, providing Connie with a super organized list of numbers she needs regularly and then getting info out of a young boy the team brought back after their call at the local swimming pool. And wasn’t THAT a fun one? A live wire had electrocuted the lifeguard and a man trying to rescue her and all the kids in the pool were in danger. They got all the kids to come to them at the edge…except one little boy. Kidd and the new guy (Cordova) had to jump in to get him, and all three BARELY escaped being shocked themselves. And just when Casey started to come around with Cordova, he learned by accident that Dawson had dated him for a little while years before. He was understandably ticked off that Gabby hadn’t told him herself, but he’s a good guy and he got over it — at least, that’s what it seems. Time will tell if that continues! LOL

But the highlight of the episode had to be Otis, who got the boy’s dad’s name (the kid said his mom’s name was Mommy. Too cute!) and their street name, and then he called Dad to come pick him up. Mom stormed in later, claiming Dad wasn’t supposed to have access to the kid. It looked like the CFD was going to be sued, even though they later found the boy safe and sound, but when Otis went to the house to apologize, he realized the couple was actually still a couple and had been scamming the CFD. Otis was pretty awesome in this one. And of course, we can’t forget Kidd trying to impress Severide’s mom… That went over like a lead balloon. His mom seems off somehow, especially since she acted so damaged by Severide’s dad (her ex-husband) but then at the end of the episode, they’d apparently slept together after she went to see him and face her past…and now they say they’re getting back together. Eek! Oh, and Gabby and Brett caught up with two paramedics who used to work for the fire department but who now work for a private ambulance company. Gabby was considering it…until they got caught in the middle of a gang gun battle and the other two hurried away because their company forbids them from taking “high-risk” patients (ie: ones who probably don’t have insurance). Luckily their friends from the firehouse got there in time to keep them safe, since the police showed up slow and late!

So how long will Otis be sidelined? Will it be permanent and he decides he can stay in the office instead? Would that even be possible? And what about Severide’s parents? Somehow I don’t see that one working out.

On tonight’s episode, “When They See Us Coming,” when the FBI takes over Firehouse 51 for an undercover mission, Casey and Severide volunteer to assist with the investigation. Kidd attempts to help Severide come to terms with recent developments he’s been managing.

Check out the FBI investigation and Casey & Severide’s help tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Station 19, Beat Bobby Flay, Impractical Jokers, & S.W.A.T.

Chuck Lorre Hints at The Big Bang Theory/Young Sheldon Crossover

The Big Bang Theory may potentially be looking to end its series, but Young Sheldon is still very much in its infancy and already enjoying a lot of success. The original series is the no.1 comedy in terms of viewership, while Young Sheldon is the no.1 new comedy. The problem with a crossover is the 30-year time difference between the two shows. So it would be a tricky task indeed to transport characters from a small Texas town three decades earlier to modern-day Pasadena. That doesn’t mean that adult versions of Young Sheldon characters couldn’t show up at all, of course.

Lorre says no

Being a spinoff show, Young Sheldon has a lot to thank its predecessor for, so it would be a treat to see a crossover between the two series before The Big Bang Theory drifts off into the sunset. Chuck Lorre, creator of both shows, had previously insisted that a crossover would be unlikely to happen. Fans shouldn’t be too surprised to see some of their favourite Young Sheldon characters make the occasional appearance in Pasadena, however.

Tonight, The Good Place returns for the first of its final 5 episodes of the season. When we last left off, Michael was worried that Janet’s dimwitted new boyfriend Derek was going to go blab to Vicky, so he sought advice from Eleanor and Chidi on how to handle the situation (besides just killing Derek). Meanwhile, Jason and Tahani went off on a weekend getaway, where Jason proposed to Tahani. The two planned to get married later that day on the beach, but the rest of the group rushed to stop them. Eleanor told Tahani that in a past iteration, Jason had been married to Janet, and that was enough for her to call off the wedding. Janet was then forced to confront her feelings for Jason, and this caused her to dispose of Derek herself. Finally, Eleanor showed Chidi the VHS tape of the two of them professing their love for one another in a past iteration, and both of them agreed they didn’t have feelings for one another. And the episode ended with Michael returning to his office, where his angry boss Shawn was waiting.

Can Michael really become a good guy, or is he up to something? Does Shawn know about Michael and the others? And if so, does this mean Michael is going to be permanently terminated, or is there some other twist that we don’t know about yet? What is our gang’s ultimate plan? Will Eleanor and Chidi admit they do have feelings for one another? Will Jason and Tahani end up together, or is there still a chance for Janet and Jason? (And how does that even work?!) This is one of the shows I really look forward to each week, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the season plays out, and what kind of new cliffhanger they leave us with 4 weeks from now!

On tonight’s episode, “Leap to Faith,” Michael receives a surprise visitor. Meanwhile, Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani, and Jason attempt to solve a riddle.

Find out if the group can solve the riddle tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Life in Pieces, Superstore, Will & Grace, Van Helsing, and Damnation.

I really enjoyed last week’s S.W.A.T. because the case-of-the-week was really interesting. Because Street went off book during a training exercise, he was “killed” and his team lost, which meant when four inmates escaped during transport, the two worst offenders were given to Mumford’s team to find, while Hondo’s team had to go after a local bad guy and a weird guy who was arrested flying back into the US with illegal turtles strapped to his legs. Mumford’s team quickly found the lessor bad guy of their two, but then Hondo’s team found their two, and the race was on to find the worst of the four…who was a violent criminal Jessica had helped put away. She explained to Hondo that a woman had testified, the only witness who would – and her son suffered for it. The word “rata” (Spanish for rat) was carved into his back.

Thankfully, Hondo and his team took the guy down after he kidnapped a 16-year-old young girl he said was “his.” Not only that, but the cousin who helped him escape went after the female witness and her kids, and Street and Chris took him down. The only thing that was a bit too silly for me was the way Hondo took the guy down – by standing outside a helicopter as it hovered outside the cabin the guy holed up in with his kidnap victim.

I’ve seen tonight’s episode as well as next week’s already, and I have to say, Street is growing on me. Even at the beginning of last week’s episode, I wasn’t sure about him, although I did like how he had learned and grown a little by the end. We learn more about him and his life in tonight’s episode, which is a great one!

On tonight’s episode, “Pamilya,” newcomer Jim Street jeopardizes his spot on Hondo’s team when he agrees to do a favor for his incarcerated mother that endangers his SWAT career. Also, the SWAT team searches for the ruthless mastermind behind a drug trafficking ring that forces immigrants to be mules. Sherilyn Fenn guest stars as Karen Street.

Find out what Street does for his mother tonight CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, & Beat Bobby Flay.
