brooklyn991025smallCaptain Holt is back on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I mean, he was never GONE, but he’s back in charge at the 99. Throughout the episode, the Volture made a rule that the 99 only solved misdemeanors so their solve rate was as high as possible. So when Jake—who kept trying to break the Volture’s rule—came across a new case that he thought was the work of a previous killer, the Oolong Slayer, he connected with Captain Holt and together, they found the killer. Jake told the powers that be that Holt had solved it, and Holt got his job back at the 99. Woohoo!

The other funny story was Terry getting addicted to Boyle’s cacao nibs. Every time he’d solve a case, he’d eat one, but it quickly spiraled out of control and he ballooned up in weight. It was quite amusing to see his addiction. I especially loved his speech about giving up the habit, only to see a bunch of the nibs falling out of his bag. LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Halloween III,” the third installment of Captain Holt and Jake’s Halloween heist culminates with a tie-breaking competition to claim the title of “amazing detective slash genius.” This year, Jake and Holt split the squad into two teams to help them win.

See who wins tonight on FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Great British Baking Show, Guy’s Grocery Games, Halloween Wars, CSI: Cyber, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

thewalkingdead1025smallLast week’s episode of The Walking Dead was so tense and exciting – one of the all-time best of the series so far. We got a chance to see what went on back at Alexandria while the main gang was away implementing their zombie traffic flow plan…and what caused the loud horn honking that messed up that plan in the season premiere. It was just another day in Alexandria when, all of a sudden, the town was overrun by the murderous Wolves, who started hacking away at the townsfolk with knives. Carol immediately took action, disguising herself as one of the Wolves while strategically taking them out and making her way to the armory to ensure that the guns didn’t fall into the hands of these intruders. She also had to do the dirty work for Morgan, who tried to remain peaceful, refusing to kill any of the Wolves, just fending them off with his staff while asking them to leave. We were also introduced to the new doctor in town (played by the delightful Merritt Wever), who isn’t actually new but somehow we never saw her before. 🙂 And also learned about Enid’s tragic backstory and her “Just Survive Somehow” philosophy, which may mean she was the one who tipped off the Wolves on the town’s defenses and when it would be less guarded.

In the end, many were left dead, Carol had revealed her true self to the rest of the Alexandrians, Morgan let some of the Wolves get away (with at least one gun), Enid had disappeared, and the town finally got a huge wake-up call as to the dangers of the outside world. And to make matters worse, during the fight, a dead body fell on a truck horn, causing the hoard of zombies Rick was wrangling to change course and head toward town. Can Rick and the gang figure out how to redirect the hoard before it’s too late? How are the Alexandrians going to recover from/be changed by this huge massacre? Was Enid a member of the Wolves, and will they be coming back to finish the job?

On tonight’s episode, “Thank You,” a small group, including Rick, runs into hurdles while trying to return to Alexandria, and some may not make it back.

Find out if anyone doesn’t make it back to Alexandria tonight on AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time, Quantico, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, Talking Dead, The Leftovers, Project Greenlight, and Homeland.

halloweenwars2015smallHalloween Wars is always a lot of fun to watch because I am always amazed at the level of skill these contestants display – especially the pumpkin carvings. I’m over here proud of my old-fashioned jack o’ lantern design, and they’re sculpting masterpieces. It’s humbling, for sure. The candy artists are also nothing to overlook because the work they do is very intricate, and I’d be panicking if I was them due to the fragile nature of some of the sugar work. Last week, we watched as the teams worked on scares that involved grave-robbing themes and I found them all scary.

On tonight’s finale, “Undead Dinner Party,” the final battle, two teams made up of an expert pumpkin carver, cake decorator, and sugar artist go head-to-head to create terrifying and scream-worthy displays of an undead dinner party. Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, serves as the special guest judge and helps determine which team wins the $50,000 grand prize.

To see which team takes home the win, tune in to Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Walking Dead, Guy’s Grocery Games, America’s Funniest Home Videos, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Cutthroat Kitchen, Once Upon a Time, and Quantico.
