timetravelingbongsmallTonight, in honor of it being 4/20, Comedy Central is kicking off the 3-night miniseries Time Traveling Bong, in which cousins Sharee and Jeff (Ilana Glazer and Paul W. Downs, Broad City) discover a time-traveling bong that sends them on an adventure of many lifetimes. Soon after the journey begins, the structural integrity of the time-travel device is compromised (aka, the bong breaks and they try to glue it back together), and now the cousins have no control over where or when they go or how to get back home. Their bizarre journey takes them through many exciting periods of history, such as the Salem witch trials of the 1600s, the segregated South of the 1960s, ancient Greece, and even a dystopian future.

The miniseries was inspired by a sketch Glazer and Downs did back in 2012. While I wasn’t a fan of Broad City, based on the trailer this looks like it could be pretty funny and entertaining. Either that or really, really horrible. Either way, I’m looking forward to checking out tonight’s premiere of this Bill & Ted-like adventure.

On tonight’s premiere, “Chapter 1: The Beginning,” two cousins discover a water pipe that allows them to travel through time after smoking pot, but when the bong is damaged they are helplessly hurtled from one epoch to another.

Take a trip…hah…tonight on Comedy Central at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, Empire, The Americans, and The Last Panthers.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

criminalmindsbb420smallI’ve really been enjoying Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, which is a relief, seeing as sometimes spinoffs can be a disaster, and I’d hate to lose Gary Sinese off my screen again. There’s something about that man in any role he plays that makes him intriguing and keeps me coming back for more.

Last week’s episode was incredibly disturbing, when a honeymooning couple was kidnapped while in Belize and then the husband showed up dead without his heart and other body parts missing. It turns out the man that kidnapped them was looking for another wife to add to his twisted harem, and the man actually barbecued the husband’s heart and ate it. This UnSub is honestly one of the creepiest ever, because anyone who eats a grilled heart clearly has no connection to reality. In the end, the team saved the kidnapped American as well as the man’s other wives he was keeping hostage.

On tonight’s episode, “Citizens of the World,” the International Response Team travels to Morocco when a retired couple from Idaho is kidnapped while visiting the country on a cruise.

Let’s see if the team can track down this couple tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds and Rosewood.
