Today, Netflix releases the first half of the fifth and final season of Fuller House. As the fourth season came to a close, the She Wolf Pack went to a performance of Hamilton, but Kimmy’s water broke just as the show was about to start. So DJ and Stephanie rushed her off to the hospital. Meanwhile, Jimmy was having doubts about becoming a father (little did he know it was about to be a little too late for that), but Fernando and Max calmed his fears. As Kimmy gave birth to a baby girl, Jimmy proposed to Stephanie, who, of course, accepted—”Stephanie Tanner, you are now officially going to be a Gibbler!” Also in the waiting room were Jackson and Rocki, who had reconciled – Jackson had made fun of her at prom, but she forgave him, and during the car ride to the hospital, the two seem to have realized they still had feelings for one another.

I’ve really enjoyed this revival series, and it’s sad to think there are just 18 episodes left. What crazy situations await the Tanners and Gibblers? We know there’s at least one more wedding in the works. Will the Olsen twins actually make an appearance before it’s all over? (Seems doubtful.) How will they explain the disappearance of Aunt Becky – is it too soon to joke about her legal situation? What will Stephanie and Jimmy name their daughter? This is one of the few Netflix shows I’ve managed to keep up with, and I look forward to checking out the new episodes tonight.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Blacklist, Van Helsing, Encore!, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Servant, The Graham Norton Show, The Mandalorian, The World According to Jeff Goldblum, and Top Elf.

With recent shake ups between HBO Max, Warner Brothers, and DCU, the streaming platform dedicated to DC properties may not last that long, but for the time being they have been certain to make sure of one thing: Every week since its launch the service has had at least one new episode of completely original content, including such shows as Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing, & Young Justice. They keep that streak alive today by debuting Harley Quinn on the same day Titans season 2 ends.

This new Harley Quinn cartoon is NOT for kids. It is adult material in animated form, a la South Park or Rick and Morty. It is set to be violent AF and funny as well. Harley will be breaking away from her co-dependent abusive relationship with the Joker and striking out on her own. Many will be sad to see that this means she’s trading in the mallet and mime outfit for the “Suicide Squad” outfit and a metal baseball bat. Poison Ivy will be a regular and Harley’s bff. To make a name in the underworld independent of Mr. J, she’ll be forming a new crew. With the voice talents of Jason Alexander, Alan Tudyk, & Kayley Cuoco, this show should be an instant classic. There are plenty of other recognizable names & voices as well: Chris Meloni, Diedrich Bader, Giancarlo Esposito, J.B. Smoove, Jim Rash, Lake Bell, Natalie Morales, Ron Funches, Tony Hale, & Wanda Sykes.

Thirteen episodes means about three months, during which hopefully Doom Patrol season two wraps!

On today’s episode, “Til Death Do Us Part,” Harley Quinn is fed up being the Joker’s sidekick and strikes out on her own – determined to become the criminal Queenpin of Gotham City.

Don’t miss the premiere this morning at 9AM/8AMc.

I’ll also be watching that Titans finale, Ancient Aliens, & Black Jesus.

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.

I was a little bit ticked off when I started working on the schedule for this week and realized The Great British Baking Show premiered last week on Netflix, and my main source didn’t have it listed when I was doing the schedule last week. But I was also very excited since that meant the show was back, and I love it! Unlike the previous season (but like the seasons before it), they didn’t drop the full season at once. Episodes will air weekly overnight on Thursday night/Friday morning, which means last night, they dropped episode 2.

I won’t spoil last week’s premiere, which I’ve already watched, since this is the first time I’m bringing it up. But I will say it’s a fun mix of contestants again this season (and one young guy is so nervous, he cuts his fingers 3 or 4 times in the first episode! LOL) and the hosts and judges are still as fun and kooky as ever.

Check out episode 2, “Biscuits Week,” now on Netflix.

With only two episodes to sew up the whole story, Swamp Thing found himself in a dire situation to start last week’s penultimate episode. He was held captive by Dr. Jason Woodrue, who was dissecting him in a makeshift portable lab. Woodrue developed a theory that the swamp creature was not Alec Holland, as we’ve believed all season, but a plant that was manifesting as a humanoid that believes they’re Holland. Daniel Cassidy/The Blue Devil woke up in a hospital, confronted by the demonic deal broker who cursed him with his powers. A vision of the future was shared, showing Abby & Liz Tremayne getting slaughtered by mercenaries in a mystery location.

IRL, Abby & Liz went to Woodrue’s house to try to track his location. They spoke with his increasingly insane wife. In the lab, Woodrue tore Swamp Thing’s organs out one by one, despite the fact he was clearly alive. Avery Sunderland recovered with Woodrue’s help and moved directly to having his wife forcibly admitted to an insane asylum. Cassidy accepted his fate, and the power of the Blue Devil possessed him. Abby & Liz used the lead they got from the mad wife and sneaked into the remote, mobile medical lab Woodrue had been using. The gals stopped just short of a room they heard the mercenaries in, when The Blue Devil appeared! Using his demonic powers of electricity and blue flames, he totally killed the shit out of all of them.

That allowed the gals to free Swamp Thing, who wished to return to the swamp to see if Woodrue’s theory was true. Woodrue meanwhile returned home just in time to find his wife dying of an overdose. Abby followed the creature into the swamp where, shockingly, they actually found the body of dead human scientist Alec Holland, proving that Swamp Thing is not Alec!

Now, this show got canceled after one week on the air. It was not given a chance because the state of North Carolina chintz’d out on the tax breaks they had initially offered. The show’s creator did however make a point to tell us to stick around for the post credits for a tease of future content. So maybe the character will see life on a future show? I hope so, because this show has been a great ride, even after being cut down to 10 episodes instead of the originally planned 13.

On today’s episode, “Loose Ends,” The swamp fights back in the season finale. Still reeling with the revelation of the truth behind his existence, Swamp Thing goes on the offensive against Ellery’s mercenary team hunting him. Meanwhile, Abby comes up against Jason Woodrue, who’s crossed the line to save his wife’s life. And as Liz tries to help Dan Cassidy escape the curse of the Blue Devil and leave Marais once and for all, Avery Sunderland attempts to find a resolution to his relationship with Lucilia and Matt Cable.

Don’t miss the finale this morning on DCU at 9AM/8AMc.

I’ll also be tuning in for the 2-hour season finale to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
