channelzero1011smallTonight, Syfy kicks off the first season of its 6-part horror series, Channel Zero: Candle Cove. In 1988, when Mike Painter was twelve, his twin identical twin brother Eddie was the fifth and final victim in a series of child murders. However, Eddie’s body was never found. Mike (Paul Schneider, Parks and Recreation) is now a child psychologist and has never been back home to Iron Hill, Ohio, since those grisly events. He decides to surprise his widowed mother Marla (Fiona Shaw, Harry Potter, True Blood.) with a visit, but also has an ulterior motive: he wants to investigate the murders. While Mike is having dinner with childhood friends Sheriff Gary Yolen (Shaun Benson, In Just Cause) and his wife Jessica (Nicole Brown, The Strain), Mike sees the couple’s daughter watching static on a television. She tells Mike she was watching Candle Cove, a strange children’s series that was only on the air for two months in 1988, during the period when the murders were committed. Mike starts seeing unusual things, and when a child goes missing, he suspects the gruesome events from his past are happening again – and that this TV show may somehow be connected. The series also stars Luisa D’Oliveira (The 100) as deputy Amy Welch, who is too young to remember the original murders.

This is one eerie show that you probably won’t want to watch alone, especially in the dark! Tonight’s premiere does a great job of both slowly unfolding the events of the past and establishing the strange things that are starting to occur in the present. The story takes some unexpected and really creepy turns in tonight’s premiere, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the story unfolds – and learn what’s going on with the incredibly disturbing show-within-the-show. Channel Zero is an anthology series, and the first season, titled Candle Cove, will tell a complete story over its 6 episodes. A second season telling a different story is already being planned.

On tonight’s episode, “You Have to Go Inside,” the return of a kids’ TV show from the 1980s coincides with the disappearance of a young person.

Get spooked from the beginning tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., This Is Us, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, Scream Queens, The Flash, No Tomorrow, Halt and Catch Fire, Aftermath, and Chrisley Knows Best.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

chicagofire1011smallIt’s finally time for the season premiere of Chicago Fire, and it promises to be a big one. Last season ended with some strong and intense story lines. Casey and Dawson had broken up because she was dead set on fostering the little boy, Louie, they’d found during a fire call, and Casey wasn’t sure he was up for that at this point in his life. Dawson was still searching for someplace to live when she finally got the okay to a home inspection, and she took Herrmann up on the apartment over his garage. Unfortunately it was falling apart, but her coworkers showed up to fix it up as best they could just in time for the inspector to get there. In the end, she was approved to become Louie’s foster mom, which was very emotional. Casey had been out of town at some sort of conference/meetings with his political consultant, Susan Weller, who’d been growing increasingly flirty/touchy-feely. In fact, she offered him her room number. But apparently he came to his senses, because at the end of the episode, he showed up at Dawson’s new place, and it looks like maybe things are on the up-swing for them again.

Meanwhile, Borrelli was still dealing with his brother’s death, having to clear out his locker. And the guys at his brother’s firehouse egged him on about Boden being reckless and making the wrong call, which is what helped push him to what is going to happen this season. And finally, Severide and Stella are getting closer, but her ex has fallen off the deep end and either tried to kill himself or accidentally overdosed last season, ending up in Chicago Med, but then he disappeared from the hospital, so things are a little dicey with them.

Like I said… Lots of strong and intense story lines leading up to tonight’s premiere!

On tonight’s episode, “The Hose or the Animal,” Severide and Stella are on the lookout for a very unstable Grant (guest star Guy Burnet), who left Chicago Med without notice. Now that Dawson is responsible for Louie, she questions her dangerous career path as a firefighter. Casey continues his work as Alderman but his relationship with his political consultant, Susan Weller (guest star Lauren Stamile), cools. Problems continue for Borrelli, who still blames Chief Boden for the death of his brother, and the situation reaches a boiling point. Meanwhile, Mouch and Brett start off on a new venture together.

Find out how the members of Firehouse 51 are handling everything tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chopped Junior, NCIS, American Housewife, Bull, MasterChef Canada, No Tomorrow, Aftermath, Chopped, NCIS: NOLA, & Star Plates.

ncisnola1011smallLast week’s episode of NCIS: New Orleans was highly entertaining, with a guest appearance by Tom Arnold as a friend of Pride’s from years ago, named Elvis. He was an expert hacker and computer extraordinaire who found himself the suspect of a murder. The FBI was still interested in Pride’ss team for the terrorist issues so they were also pursuing this case. There was a lot of suspicion of Elvis, but in the end Pride helped prove his innocence and his team was also finally cleared.

On tonight’s episode, “Man on Fire,” after a decorated petty officer is found dead inside a sports arena, evidence leads Pride and the NCIS team to a kidnapping case of a petty officer who was last seen in Mexico. Mario Lopez guest stars.

To see if the team can solve the case in time, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, This Is Us, and Scream Queens.
