hawaiifiveo107smallHawaii Five-0 is off to a strong, exciting start to the season. They’ve chased a bad guy all over town on foot, and then last week they worked with a British MI6 agent to find a terrorist looking to cause nuclear reactors across Europe to meltdown. Thankfully they stopped it JUST before it happened – and then followed the agent to find him about to kill the bad guy responsible for killing his wife with a terrorist bombing. I personally didn’t find it fair that someone else got to kill the guy, but they only shot him when he started to shoot at them, so… This week, Alicia Brown (Claire Forlani), the former FBI profiler Steve asked for help with the serial killer in the first episode of the season, is back, so it should be fun!

On tonight’s episode, “He Moho Hou (New Player),” when FBI Profiler Alicia Brown (Claire Forlani) finds a body in her bed, she is forced to join McGarrett in the hunt for the chess-piece killer. Also, Kono reconnects with a former surfing competitor (Kanya Sesser), who is now a disabled and homeless war vet. Elizabeth Rohm (Law & Order) also guest stars.

See if Alicia, Steve, and the team can catch the chess-piece killer tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, Last Man Standing, MacGyver, & Blue Bloods.

theswapsmallIn the 1980s, it seemed like there was constantly a new one of those body-swapping movies, where a parent and child or two strangers think the other one’s life was easier, casually wish they had the other’s life, wake up the next morning in one another’s bodies, and gradually realize the grass wasn’t necessarily greener for the other person. Tonight, the Disney Channel premieres the new original movie The Swap, which takes this concept into the modern world. Teenager Ellie O’Brien (Peyton List, Bunk’d, Jessie) struggles to balance her rhythmic gymnastics with dealing with troubles with her best friend. Meanwhile, Jack Malloy (Jacob Bertrand, Kirby Buckets) is feeling pressure from his father to live up to the legacy of his star hockey-player of a brother. The two classmates get into a text argument about which one them has it so much easier, and this ends in both of them making that fateful “I wish…” statement. The next morning Ellie and Jack wake up in each other’s bodies and are forced to literally walk in the other’s shoes.

I’ve seen pretty much every body swap movie there is, and I have yet to watch one I didn’t enjoy. I just find these kind of fish-out-of-water type films to be so much fun. I like the idea of the switch happening via texting, and I’m interested to see how else they modernize this type of story. I look forward to checking out this new addition to the genre tonight on Disney.

Make the swap with them tonight on Disney Channel at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording MacGyver, The Exorcist, Z Nation, Van Helsing, and Quarry.

bluebloods107smallI know I have a tendency to recommend a lot of crime dramas, but when they continue to be as good as Blue Bloods, I don’t see an end in sight. Last week’s episode, we watched as Frank tried to teach a beat cop a lesson about respect after finding him talking on his cell phone and he tossed a cigarette butt on the ground while on duty and after a direct order. After punishing the officer with a summons, Frank did eventually come around and made a real connection with him. Elsewhere, Erin helped Anthony with a man who had defrauded his mother, who suffers with Alzheimer’s. I was so sad for his mom as she struggled to figure out what happened, because she felt so helpless.

On tonight’s episode, “The Price of Justice,” Danny and Baez are determined to get justice for a traumatized young woman who was held hostage, despite her resistance to press charges. Also, Frank deals with a PR nightmare when a prominent NYPD fundraiser is spotted cutting through Manhattan traffic in a fake police vehicle, and Jamie is offered a job as a technical advisor on a television show after working with the TV and Film unit.

To find if Danny can help the victim come to terms, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, The Exorcist, Hell’s Kitchen, MacGyver, and Van Helsing.
