containment419smallTonight, The CW kicks off the new 13-episode limited series, Containment. After a deadly epidemic breaks out in an urban part of Atlanta, the residents in the area are quarantined in order to try to contain the outbreak while the CDC looks for a cure. The series follows the lives of those both inside the quarantine zone, who are struggling to stay alive, as well as those outside, who have been separated by their loved ones. Police officer Lex Carnahan (David Gyasi, Interstellar) learns that his girlfriend Jana (Christina Marie Moses, Starship: Apocalypse) and best friend Officer Jake Riley (Chris Wood, The Vampire Diaries) are trapped inside, along with 17-year-old Teresa (Hanna Mangan Lawrence, Spartacus: War of the Damned) who is 8-months pregnant and separated from her boyfriend Xander (Demetrius Bridges); elementary school teacher Katie Frank (Kristen Gutoskie, Beaver Falls) and her entire class, including her own son; and CDC researcher Dr. Victor Cannerts (George Young, Casualty), who played a major role in the quarantine effort. The series also stars Claudia Black (The Originals, Farscape) as Dr. Sabine Lommers and Trevor St. John (One Life to Live) as Leo Greene.

Containment is a remake of a 2014 Belgian series named Cordon, and comes from executive producers Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries) and Matt Corman (Covert Affairs). Tonight’s premiere was directed by David Nutter, who also directed the pilots of many other Warner Brothers shows, including Arrow, The Flash, Supernatural, Smallville, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and more. I’m looking forward to checking out tonight’s premiere. I always enjoy a good virus outbreak story, and this one looks like it could be really good. Though, it’ll probably make me paranoid and have me constantly washing my hands all day at work tomorrow and giving coughing and sneezing coworkers nervous looks!

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” a mysterious fatal virus breaks out and leads to part of Atlanta being quarantined in the series premiere of this drama.

To see how the virus gets out, tune in to The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Limitless, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Grinder, The Flash, and The Night Manager.

brooklyn99419smallLast week’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine left off on a cliffhanger coming into tonight’s season finale: Captain Holt was with his former partner—now an FBI agent—at the hospital, watching over the man—another FBI agent, who was unconscious after someone shot him in his apartment—the squad believed was the dirty agent responsible for wanting to kill Pimento. Amy was able to get the names of the bad agents out of the bad guy’s former girlfriend in prison. Unfortunately, by the time they got that news, Captain Holt was already being held at gunpoint by his former partner, who’d just killed the agent in the hospital bed. Gasp! Holt’s former partner is dirty! And on a significantly lighter story line, Terry realized the department had a leak when the arrest numbers were released in the newspaper before the department formally announced them. He accused Hitchcock and Scully, then spied on the rest of the precinct when he realized it couldn’t be them. Gina shamed him when she checked his Twitter feed or whatever and saw that he’d posted a picture of his daily yogurt, and in the background, on the wall, were the arrest numbers. And finally, Charles got the call that his and Genevieve’s adoption is going through!

So how is the season going to end? Obviously Holt will be okay. Will he overpower his former partner, will the man escape, or will the others get there in time to arrest him? I’m guessing Amy will be out of prison, sans baby belly… And will Charles get his baby?

On tonight’s episode, “Greg and Larry,” after a surprising turn of events in the Nine-Nine’s attempt to track down Adrian Pimento’s (guest star Jason Mantzoukas) hitman, the precinct drops everything when they suspect Holt is in danger. Dennis Haysbert also guest stars.

See how the season ends tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, The Real O’Neals, Chicago Med, NCIS: NOLA, Containment, Chicago Fire, & Chopped.
