Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Kyle’s Choice #1

Tonight two very different shows return to kick off new seasons.

First up, airing on both Syfy and USA Network, is the second season premiere of Krypton. In the first season, present-day Earthling Adam Strange traveled back in time to the planet Krypton to warn Seg-El – the future grandfather of Superman – of a pending attack by time-traveling super-villain Brainiac. If this Devourer of Worlds managed to destroy the planet, causing Superman to never be born, the Earth would be doomed. However, Kandor City was currently too distracted by a religious and political war that was going on – an underground rebellion known as Black Zero had formed against those in charge.

As the season came to a close, Brainiac finally arrived and started his attack on Kandor City. Dru-Zod, the future son of Lyta-Zod and Seg-El, had also traveled back in time to stop Braniac, but he had his own ulterior motives, desiring to rule over Krypton. He joined Black Zero, rising up the ranks, while awaiting Braniac’s arrival. Meanwhile, Seg-El’s grandfather Val-El, who was presumed dead, was actually alive and was rescued from the Phantom Zone by Dru-Zod; Jax-Ur revealed to Nyssa that she was in fact just a clone of the original Nyssa; and Doomsday escaped containment. During the big final showdown, Seg-El managed to trap Brainiac in the Phantom Zone, but he was pulled in as well. Dru-Zod destroyed the Phantom Zone gateway, trapping them both in there. He then seized control of Kandor City as well as most of the other Kryptonian City-States, declaring himself the leader. When Adam returned to Earth, he discovered a ruined city, with a giant statue of Zod.

The second season picks up 6 months later, as Zod continues to expand his empire. The others believe Seg-El is dead and don’t want his sacrifice to have been in vain. Even though Braniac has been stopped, the Earth still appears to be doomed. Can Adam and the resistance stop Zod’s evil plan to take over the world and fix things back to how they should be? Will they find a way to save Seg-El from the Phantom Zone? What does Nyssa’s revelation that she is a clone mean? And what does Doomsday’s escape pose another big danger? It looks like this will be another exciting season.

On tonight’s premiere, “Light-Years From Home,” Seg-El is stranded far from home, where his grandfather leads a rebellion against General Zod.

To see if Seg-El makes it home, tune in to Syfy and USA Network at 10/9c.

Tonight, I’m looking forward to quite a few premieres. In addition to new seasons of Big Brother on CBS and Broadchurch on BBC America, I’m really looking forward to the return of Younger on TV Land. As the third season came to a close, Josh had made his way to the Hamptons to propose to Liza, only to see her kissing Charles. Needless to say, he didn’t go through with his plans. Liza tried to explain that she made a mistake and that she was in love with Josh, but he didn’t want to hear it. When she got home, Kelsey was there, depressed over her breakup with Colin. Liza introduced Kelsey to her 26-year-old daughter and finally admitted to the fact that she was almost 41 years old.

That was one of the moments fans have been waiting for for a long time. There was only so long that Liza could continue to lie to Kelsey and still be her friend. But how will Kelsey react to all this news? Will she keep the secret, or will Liza be out of a job? Will Liza move on to Charles now that things have ended with Josh, or will she continue to try to have her cake and eat it to? I have thoroughly enjoyed the first three seasons of this show, and the series has already been picked up for a fifth, so there’s a lot more to come! I look forward to seeing how this latest chapter kicks off tonight!

On tonight’s premiere, “Post Truth,” Liza deals with the aftermath of coming clean with Kelsey, and Charles tests their synchronicity; Kelsey and Josh become unlikely allies.

See the repercussions of Liza’s actions last season tonight on TV Land at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Okja, To Tell the Truth, Big Brother, The Carmichael Show, MasterChef, Broadchurch, Blood Drive, Big Star Little Star, and Kingdom.

"Younger" (Airs 11/9 at 10pm ET/PT)Last week on Younger, Charles decided he’d had enough of Bryce’s drastic changes and told him he no longer wanted him to invest in the company. This meant that they had to quickly find some new authors or Empirical would really be in danger of shutting down. Redmond brought Liza and Kelsey a manuscript for an erotica novel from a first-time author who they loved, but its female author wanted to remain anonymous. Liza and Kelsey didn’t like the idea of not knowing who the author was, so they decided to pass. However, after some investigating, they realized that their young fresh “female” erotica voice belonged to Empirical’s cash cow Edward L.L. Moore, who was writing under a pseudonym. After hearing about this, Charles told Liza to offer Moore whatever he wanted because the company couldn’t afford to lose its biggest author to another publishing company. So now, in addition to keeping up her own lie, Liza has to keep the public from finding out that the new young woman writing about the female experience is actually an obese 68-year-old man who drives around on a scooter.

I’m still really enjoying this series, but I really wish that Liza would tell someone at work the truth about her age. If she told Charles, he’d probably be more apt to try to rekindle a romance – you can tell he still has feeling for Liza, and knowing the truth would help him understand why she has been so distant. And Kelsey might feel a bit betrayed at first, but she would probably get over that quickly and it would be back to the status quo.

On tonight’s episode, “Ladies Who Lust,” a women’s erotica event threatens to expose the author’s secret while Liza and Kelsey try to preserve it.

See if Liza and Kelsey can keep the author’s secret tonight on TV Land at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, black-ish, Designated Survivor, Survivor, Criminal Minds, Blindspot, Lethal Weapon, Empire, Arrow, Frequency, Worst Cooks in America, You’re the Worst, Stan Against Evil, and Impastor.

This season of Criminal Minds is going to look a little different than the past eleven. For one, Derek (Shemar Moore) retired from the FBI last season after his wife had a baby and he was held hostage by a bad guy. And second, after an altercation on set with a writer, Thomas Gibson was put on leave and then quickly fired, which means Hotch will only be in a couple (or few, I don’t know…) episodes. On a great note, though, the show rehired Paget Brewster as a series regular, which means Prentiss is back full-time! Also on board full-time as a series regular is Aisha Tyler (playing Dr. Tara Lewis) and new agent Luke Alvez, played by CSI: Miami vet Adam Rodriguez, who I loved on that show.

So who is taking over Hotch’s job as team leader? Some fans are suggesting Prentiss…and while that might work, I don’t see why Rossi isn’t the perfect person for the job – unless he doesn’t want it. Regardless, this season should be exciting as the team learns to work together and try to re-capture the serial killers who escaped from prison in the finale last season.

On tonight’s episode, “The Crimson King,” Agent Luke Alvez joins the BAU team, which is tasked with capturing a killer who escaped prison with 13 other convicts.

See how well the team works together tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, The Goldbergs, Lethal Weapon, Speechless, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Whose Line is It Anyway?, Worst Cooks in America, black-ish, Chicago PD, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

"Younger" (Ep. 212 - Airs March 23, 2016)Tonight, the second season of Younger comes to a close. Last week, Liza threatened Thad that if he didn’t tell Kelsey he was cheating on her, she would do it for him. Meanwhile, Empirical was busy trying to prepare for the launch of the latest fantasy novel from their biggest author – an obvious nod to George R. R. Martin and his “A Song of Ice and Fire.” They were auditioning actresses to portray the heroine at the launch party when Liza walked in, and the lecherous author immediately wanted her to be the one to wear the Slave Leia-like costume. Meanwhile, Thad showed up to Liza’s apartment to try to convince her not to talk to Kelsey, when he ran into Liza’s daughter – and knew he now had a bargaining chip. He met with Liza in the city and threatened to go public about her age, but Liza told Thad that she was going to tell Kelsey the truth and that she didn’t care what he did. However, she soon didn’t have to worry about any of that, because as she walked away, a steel girder came falling from the sky and landed right on top of Thad!

What a shocking, unexpected, but totally effective turn of events! It looks like Liza’s secret is safe for a little longer, but how is Kelsey going to take the news of her fiance’s untimely death? And what about Liza – how will this brush with death affect her? Will she finally just come clean on her own? And what about her love life – will she get back with Josh, will she finally make a move on Charles, or will she find love somewhere else?

On tonight’s episode, “No Weddings & a Funeral,” tragedy strikes, and Liza wonders if she should end her 26-year-old life forever.

Learn what decisions Liza makes tonight on TV Land at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, The Middle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, black-ish, Heartbeat, Arrow, Supernatural, Young & Hungry, Baby Daddy, and The Americans.
