Jenny’s Choice

mikeandmolly16smallI’m glad Mike & Molly is back tonight for the start of its new season. It was announced just a couple of weeks ago that this one would be its last, so here’s hoping we get a M&M baby, some happiness for Victoria and Carl, and Molly writes another best-seller. When we left off last season, Mike and Molly were celebrating their anniversary with a moonlit cruise with their friends and family, but after Carl and Victoria broke up, Mike was forced to uninvited Carl to the party. Carl came anyway, under the guise of being on the cruise with a date and not at the party itself, but he really made an ass of himself in a few ways and it seemed like not only was their friendship destroyed because of it, but their work partnership as well. I’ve seen tonight’s premiere, and it’s very funny, picking up not long after the finale left off.

On tonight’s episode, “Cops On the Rocks,” Mike and Carl go to couples counseling to try and reconcile their partnership. Also, Molly decides to do a promotional radio interview on her own after Peggy decides not to participate.

Find out if counseling can help Mike and Carl tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 2 Broke Girls, The Mysteries of Laura, The Goldbergs, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Property Brothers, black-ish, Chicago PD, Mystery Diners, & Restaurant Startup.

manseekingwoman16smallMan Seeking Woman was one of my favorite new shows last year. The first season of this really weird, high-concept comedy followed newly-single Josh Greenberg (Jay Baruchel) as he tried to re-enter the dating world after his longtime girlfriend dumped him. Helping Josh navigate his new quest for love were roommate Mike (Eric André) and sister Liz (Britt Lower). Josh’s constant nervousness and insecurity had his imagination working on overdrive, and his thoughts and fears would manifest themselves into reality in bizarre and surreal ways. However, no one around him seemed phased by this insanely wacky world he created.

I found the first season to be so imagine, creative, and really funny. The series takes a very unique approach to exploring the ups and downs and stress of the dating world. At the core, the show is this heartwarming story of one man’s search for love, but the really bizarre things he puts himself through in the process leads to some hilarious situations. One aspect of the show I really enjoyed is how matter of factly people (including Josh) act when interacting with the completely bizarre things that pop out of Josh’s head into reality, like these are just normal things they deal with every day.

As the first season closed, Josh finally got over his ex-girlfriend and accepted the fact that he was currently single. However, he didn’t feel alone and was anxious to re-enter the dating pool along with his also-single best friend and sister. I’m looking forward to seeing where the writers take these characters next and what kind of wacky and surreal situations come to life this season.

On tonight’s premiere, “Wings,” Mike resents Josh for spending all his time with his new girlfriend.

Find out if Mike lets Josh know how he feels tonight on FXX at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, black-ish, and American Horror Story: Hotel.

chicagopd16smallTonight, the Chicago crossover event wraps up with Chicago PD. This is still my favorite show in the franchise. I actually started watching Chicago PD before I became a regular viewer of Chicago Fire, because I love Sophia Bush and wanted to see her new show, but I fell in love with the whole cast and writing immediately. Now I can see the appeal of all three shows and am super pleased that they continue to give us these crossover events.

There’s been a lot of stress on PD lately, including with Olinsky and Antonio because Olinsky didn’t want Antonio making decisions for his daughter without consulting him. The big issue of the fall finale was brought up towards the end of the episode when Roman was accused of murdering that grieving mother’s estranged husband. What a twisted story that has turned out to be. I’m really hoping that we continue to see more character growth the second half of the season, but especially a final path for Burgess and Adam, because they always seem to be in limbo lately.

On tonight’s episode, “Now I’m God,” a doctor with personal connections to Voight is under investigation when four of his patients are committed to Chicago Med after an overdose of chemo. The doctor denies Lindsey and Halstead access to his files, but after obtaining a warrant, the team is able to track down his patients and discover all of them have been poisoned with unnecessary chemo. Meanwhile, Burgess and Platt work together to clear Roman’s name.

To see the conclusion of this riveting two-night event, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Law & Order: SVU, 2 Broke Girls, black-ish, Mike & Molly, and American Idol.
