I’m torn as to whether or not I am happy with the direction this season of Charmed is taking. On the one hand, it has had a lot of exciting moments, but on the other, I am tired of the sisters not having their powers. Macy still has some powers because of her demon side and Maggie is starting to get bits of power back, but Mel is still just using potions. I want to see the Charmed Ones back to their full strength. Given that the last episode ended with Macy being kidnapped by Harry’s dark lighter, now would be a great time for them to get back to normal so they can save Macy before it’s too late. I’m hoping once their powers return, they will be able to move forward with saving the world again.

On tonight’s episode, “The Truth about Kat and Dogs,” Mel and Maggie attempt to find a missing Macy with a spell while Harry uses a different method – allowing Abigael to help him access his subconscious in an attempt to connect with his dark side.

Find out if they can find Macy tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Magnum P.I., Blue Bloods, and Hawaii Five-0.

A few weeks ago, the 6-episode first season of British zombie comedy series Zomboat! premiered on ITV2 in the UK, but today Hulu takes the series stateside. There’s a sudden zombie outbreak in Birmingham, but sisters Kat (Leah Brotherhead, White Gold) and Jo (Cara Theobold, Absentia) have a plan to survive: head to an island, because zombies can’t swim! Kat believes that her extensive knowledge of zombie films and TV shows and experience at killing zombies in video games is going to help them. However, she quickly realizes that killing a zombie in person is a lot different and that these zombies don’t seem to follow the same rules set forth in TV shows and movies. The two plan to steal Jo’s ex’s narrowboat and sail down the canal to London and then find a nice island to settle on. But as they take off, the sisters discover two stowaways aboard the ship – buddies Sunny (Hamza Jeetooa, Doctor Who) and Amar (Ryan McKen, Bancroft), who were at a stag party during the outbreak.

I checked out the first two episodes of the series and found it to be a fun, dumb show that made me laugh. The characters are all a bit self-absorbed and aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed – though let’s hope they find some if they are to have any hopes of surviving. You wouldn’t think the series could do much with a boat slowly floating down a canal, but so far the writers have found reasons for these characters to make excursions back to the land where the zombies are roaming – whether it be for supplies, to pick up a friend, or something else. The zombies also don’t act the way that you’d traditionally expect them to, so there are some fun surprises. The episodes are only 22 minutes long and have built-in ad breaks, so it’s a light, fun zombie show that doesn’t involve a huge time commitment, and it’s perfect for this Halloween season.

Check out the entire first season now on Hulu!

I’ll also be watching/recording American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, 20/20, The Blacklist, and Van Helsing.

Charmed returns from hiatus tonight, and I am looking forward to seeing the sisters return to my television weekly. When I found out there was going to be a remake before the premiere of the first season, I was worried because I adored the original so much that a remake seemed like a bad idea. Thankfully it was not. The new cast and the 21st century twists the writers have taken really makes this show truly an update and very relevant to today’s culture.

When we left our witch sisters at the end of last season, the Elders had been murdered, leaving the girls in charge going forward. Maggie was still holding out hope that she and Parker could be together, even though he was a demon. Macy had just learned that she could not become the source without her demon blood making her become evil. Thankfully, the love of the sisters saved the day yet again, and we were left wondering what kind of world they would be watching over going forward. I’m interested to see how they play this season out, and if the girls are in charge, then how are they going to balance their lives as well as their duties?

On tonight’s season premiere, “Safe Space,” following the devastating loss of The Elders, Mel, Maggie, and Macy take over their duties. Maggie takes time to celebrate her birthday with a big bash, but Mel finds herself too preoccupied with their new responsibilities to join in the fun. As the girls clean up the following morning, Macy shocks her sisters with an announcement.

Find out if these young witches can handle all this responsibility tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five-0, and Magnum P.I.

Tonight, the Game of Thrones series finale airs on HBO. Last week we lost several of the show’s main characters. Daenerys questioned Jon’s and Tyrion’s loyalty for sharing the information about Jon’s true lineage with others. Tyrion revealed that Varys was plotting against the queen, so she had him executed. Before the battle for Kings Landing began, Tyrion begged Daenerys to call off her attack if the people of King’s Landing rang the bell of surrender, and she reluctantly agreed. The next morning, the attack was executed flawlessly, and Daenerys used the blinding sun to take out the Iron Fleet and blow open the city gates. Meanwhile, Jon led the attack on the ground with what remained of the Unsullied and Dothraki armies. The Golden Company was on the run. They dropped their weapons, and the bells signaling surrender were rung. However, Daenerys saw the city that used to belong to her family and decided to burn Kings Landing to the ground, sentencing hundreds of thousands of incident civilians to a fiery death. When Grey Worm saw Daenerys burning the city, he took this as an opportunity to get revenge for Missandei’s execution and spurred on a riot on the ground, causing the army to start massacring and assaulting the unarmed soldiers and civilians. Jon just looked on in horror.

Meanwhile, Arya and The Hound made their way to the city, each with a different target. The Hound wanted to kill his brother, while Arya was after Cersei. However, The Hound convinced Arya that her suicide mission was not worth it, so she decided to head back but hit obstacle after obstacle as the city crashed and burned. Elsewhere, the big showdown between The Hound and The Mountain ultimately resulted in both of them falling to a fiery death. Jaime had also made his way to the city, looking for Cersei. After being severely wounded in a fight with Euron on the shore, he stumbled up to the Red Keep, where he was reunited with his one true love/twin sister. However, as the pair tried to escape, they were trapped and crushed by falling rubble in the caverns below the city.

So how will this all end tonight? Daenerys has become the spitting image of her father, the Mad King. Tyrion and Jon must now realize that she is not the right person to sit on the throne, and something must be done to stop her. However, she still has her army and a fire-breathing dragon. What army does Jon have behind him? Will the Wildlings return to help Jon? Will Jon defeat Daenerys and claim the throne under his real name? Or else who will ultimately sit atop the throne? I can’t wait to see how this all ends tonight!

Don’t miss the 80-minute series finale tonight on HBO at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Good Girls, Supergirl, Killing Eve, A Discovery of Witches, and Barry.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/12/19

Jenny’s Choice #1

My first pick tonight is the new episode of NCIS: LA. Last week, Callen got news on Anna’s whereabouts from Joelle of all people, and they, along with Sam, Kensi, & Deeks, traveled to Cuba. Anna was apparently working with Joelle to find and take down Volkoff, who also had Callen’s father. Anna, Joelle, and Callen ended up being held by Volkoff, and at first it seemed like Anna and Joelle were killed by him right in front of Callen, but that turned out to be faked by Volkoff. In the end, Anna was shot but was going to be okay. She couldn’t return to the States, though, because even though the CIA & Joelle would clear her name, her face would still be known everywhere. So she went with Joelle and would continue working with her. Callen’s father was shot as well, and though he lived long enough to get back to LA and see both his daughter and grandson, as well as visit the grave of his other daughter who died when she was a child, he ended up dying from an infection. It was a little heartbreaking, watching Callen put the coin on his father’s headstone, but at least they all had a chance to see one another and say goodbye. And finally, a more fitting end couldn’t have come for a better person. Volkoff, who was shot after setting off chlorine gas in the bunker they were all in, which our guys barely escaped from, ended up being trapped in the bunker and dying from the gas.

I’m so excited about tonight’s episode (and next week’s finale) because we’ve got a huge JAG reunion. If you didn’t watch the show when it was originally on, it starred David James Elliott as Harmon “Harm” Rabb Jr., a former pilot turned lawyer who was now working for the military’s Judge Advocate General (ergo: JAG) division. Catherine Bell played alongside him as Lt. Col. Sarah Mackenzie. It started off on NBC, which canceled it after a single season, and then moved to CBS, where it aired for nine more seasons…and saw the spinoff of NCIS, which of course led to all the spinoffs after. Bet NBC is kicking themselves now, aren’t they? LOL Tonight’s episode will feature David James Elliott back as Harm, while Catherine Bell will return in next week’s finale.

On tonight’s episode, “The Guardian,” Callen and Sam travel to the USS Allegiance in the Persian Gulf to work with Navy Captain Harmon “Harm” Rabb, Jr. (David James Elliott)
when the NCIS team uncovers ISIS sympathizers who are targeting military locations. Mercedes Mason returns as DEA Agent Talia Del Campo.

Don’t miss the return of two familiar faces tonight on CBS at 10/9c.
