incorporatedsmallThe new Syfy series Incorporated doesn’t premiere until Wednesday November 30, but today Syfy is offering an early preview of the first episode at Incorporated.Syfy.com. The series is set in the year 2074, when climate change has ravished the planet and large corporations control 90% of the world’s natural resources. Society has been split into two classes: the rich live under the walled protection of the Green Zone and work for the corporations, while the poor live in the slums of the Red Zone, fending for themselves. Ben Larson (Sean Teale, Reign), a young executive at Spiga Biotech, has concealed his true identity for years, pretending to be a company man in order to rise up the ranks. He has a secret personal agenda, but in order to succeed, he will need to gain access to corporate perks only available to executives on the 40th floor. Ben’s wife Laura (Allison Miller, Terra Nova) is a successful plastic surgeon who doesn’t really get along with her mother Elizabeth (Julia Ormond, Mad Men), the head of Spiga’s US operations. The company takes corporate espionage very seriously, and Spiga’s Head of Security, Julian (Dennis Haysbert, 24), is one of the most feared men at the company. The series also stars Eddie Ramos (Teen Wolf) as Theo, the younger brother of a love from Ben’s past.

The premiere sets up a really interesting futuristic world filled with cool visuals and technology. However, despite all these advancements, the world is quite divided: the Green Zone controls the wealth, but it also feels very cold and sterile; while the Red Zone is dangerous, run-down, and filled with cheap, exploitative entertainment designed to attract wealthy visitors. The look and premise of the series reminds me a lot of the film Gattaca (which I also enjoyed). I look forward to checking out more of this series in a few weeks.

Check out the early release of the premiere tonight at Incorporated.Syfy.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, black-ish, Designated Survivor, Survivor, Criminal Minds, Blindspot, Lethal Weapon, Empire, Arrow, Frequency, Undercover, Worst Cooks in America, You’re the Worst, Stan Against Evil, Younger, and Impastor.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

chicagopd1116smallTonight is the fall finale for Chicago PD, but before we get into that, we gotta talk last week’s episode… I love Billy Burke, but I didn’t like seeing him as a killer, even if he killed the young woman by accident. I also hated (but wasn’t surprised by the fact) that NBC led us to believe Olinsky was going to be a bad guy and get the guy off. Thank goodness he didn’t. And because he’s in this episode tonight, we know that him handing in his badge was just a temporary thing. I also loved Burgess in this episode. She was sweet handling the former cop who’d stolen a sandwich from the deli. You had to feel for the woman, and Burgess obviously did, offering to stay in the jail cell with her overnight. And Burgess’s temporary partner was a jerk. I think Burgess is joining Intelligence in the new year, so hopefully we won’t have to put up with the guy long!

Tonight is the two-hour fall finale, and it promises to be an exciting one. I don’t know if the two story lines are interconnected or not, given the episode descriptions, but they could be. Either way, it’s going to be tense and a good watch. It’s also Jon Seda’s last episode. After tonight, Antonio Dawson moves to Chicago Justice. So enjoy!

On tonight’s episode, “300,000 Likes; A Shot Heard Round the World,” when the only witness to the rape and murder of a young man gets killed, the team suspects that someone was paid to take the victim out; a highly trained killer is believed to be targeting the police department.

Catch the two-hour fall finale tonight on NBC starting at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, The Goldbergs, Lethal Weapon, Speechless, Criminal Minds, Modern Family, & black-ish.

codeblack1116smallI’m sure by now we’ve all figured out that I love procedurals and medical shows, but that’s okay because I don’t think my love of them is going to fade anytime soon. When ER was finished, there was a gap in my television-viewing experience that wasn’t quite filled by Grey’s Anatomy because I needed a better balance of medical drama and relationships. I’ve found that with Code Black.

Code Black has some intense medical story lines as well as excellent character development. Rob Lowe is a great addition this season, and I’d be really happy if we saw his character Ethan end up romantically involved with Leanne.

Last week’s episode was great as we watched Mike make more progress towards being healed and had lots of drama between Ethan and Campbell butting heads on every surgical decision. I wish that they’d do away with having Campbell as the head of both the OR and the ER. I’m hoping they change that story line soon.

On tonight’s episode, “What Lies Beneath,” Willis and Campbell are sent to a Russian submarine in U.S. waters to treat a sailor badly wounded during an explosion, and violent convicts injured during a prison riot descend upon Angels Memorial.

To find out if Willis and Campbell can work together when it’s a matter of life and death, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago PD, Criminal Minds, Blindspot, Lethal Weapon, Speechless, Lip Sync Battle, Worst Cooks in America, and black-ish.
