I’m really enjoying Bob Hearts Abishola. Two episodes ago, Abishola started having romantic (not quite sexual, but going in that direction) dreams about Bob. Last week, she and Bob were chatting on their bench, in the snow, talking about the differences between America and Nigeria, and he asked her out to dinner in a really sweet moment. I loved how her family all dressed up before Bob picked her up. LOL The restaurant was kind of a snooty place, and when an older white couple looked askance at them for a moment, Bob made the joke that it was okay because they were from California. Abishola smirked and leaned over to tell them, “We’re also Jewish.” It made no sense really, but she got a kick out of it, and that made me laugh. Of course, then Bob tried to order steak and Abishola said no because of his heart. She shot down all of his decisions, and he ended up getting fish and spinach. It was totally something I could see an old married couple doing. LOL But then just as they were talking about doing something else instead of her going straight home, Bob’s sister called and said something weird was going on with their mother. After hearing the symptoms, Abishola said it sounded like their mom was having a stroke and to call 911. Sure enough, that’s what had happened. So the end of their date didn’t go like either of them thought it would, for sure! But even with such a serious topic, the show kept up the humor, sending Bob’s brother everywhere BUT the waiting area where Bob, Christina, and Abishola were waiting.

On tonight’s episode, “Tough Like a Laundromat Washing Machine,” Bob hires Abishola to take care of Dottie in his home while she recovers; Dottie has a hard time dealing with her limitations and takes it out on Abishola.

See how Abishola handles Dottie tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching 9-1-1, All Rise, Holiday Baking Championship, Rock the Block, Prodigal Son, & Christmas Cookie Challenge.

9-1-1 wasted no time getting drama started this season, first with a tsunami and now with Buck and his lawsuit. I understand that Buck feels betrayed by Bobby, but this lawsuit is ludicrous. It is only going to cause his friendships to fall apart, and no one will ever want to work with him again. Hopefully the writers don’t continue this story line for long, because the show is better when the team is working together.

On tonight’s episode, “Rage,” the 118 races to help protesters at a slaughterhouse and a wife who finds herself trapped in a “rage room” with her husband’s mistress. Meanwhile, Athena takes action after Michael, May, and Harry experience a traumatic traffic stop. Also, the team feels betrayed by Buck when his suit against the city goes to arbitration, and Eddie turns to Lena in his struggles with his anger issues.

Find out what Athena gets herself into tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, All Rise, Prodigal Son, Bull, Bluff City Law, The Neighborhood, and Bob Hearts Abishola.

Tonight on HBO, an exciting new comic book show debuts, though this rendition of Watchmen is not strictly an adaptation so much as an addition to the existing canon of the award-winning Vertigo comic book story from the 1980s. Most of the original 12-issue limited series was successfully adapted to a film a decade ago, with the few missing parts being available as bonus features on the DVD. Widely regarded as the best comic book tale ever told, that movie version is a tough act to replicate, so they went a different direction with it.

They set this show in the same universe as the film, but instead of the OG setting in the 1980s, they are running this continuity in a modern age of sorts. It is the 2019 of an Earth that lived through the events of The Watchmen, however. It’s a world torn by racial tension and tension between the police and the growing racist hordes who support president Robert Redford, who has sat in office for thirty years. One that sees occasional rainstorm of live squid pouring down. (Swear.) The lead vigilante hero in this arc will be an African American woman who fights crime as Sister Night. Everything I’ve heard about this one sounds trippy, morbidly funny, and apropos of many dismal aspects of our modern history. I’m in for the whole season, however it turns out. My blood-splattered Comedian’s button on my sweatshirt won’t let me miss an episode!

On tonight’s episode, “It’s Summer and We’re Running Out of Ice,” in an alternate America, where police conceal their identities behind masks to protect themselves from a terrorist organization, Detective Angela Abar (Regina King) investigates the attempted murder of a fellow officer under the guidance of her friend and Chief, Judd Crawford (Don Johnson). Meanwhile, the Lord of a Country Estate (Jeremy Irons) receives an anniversary gift from his loyal servants.

Don’t miss this exciting new show tonight on HBO at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Get Shorty, On Becoming a God in Central Florida (which I suspect many of you are still sleeping on), & Bob’s Burgers.

I’m really digging Prodigal Son on FOX. Malcolm is a little bit (a lot bit… LOL) crazy, but given his father and family history, it’s no surprise. Seeing him go flying through the window during a nightmare last episode was pretty shocking. The case was average. For the most part, the cases aren’t the highlights of this show, IMO. Some of it, like the brain being taken and Malcolm elbowing the guy off the roof of the building, was fun and unexpected, but really, the best parts are the interactions between Malcolm and the police team and learning about Malcolm’s past through his nightmares. This week, I loved him handing out the suckers to the team – including the ME, who is so cute in her crush on him – and holy heck! What’s going on with his mother?? Did she really KNOW about his father’s serial killing when it was happening, or is that just a tease right now? Sure seems like she knew, or at least suspected, but I dunno… She’s interesting, that’s for sure!

On tonight’s episode, “Designer Complicity,” as Malcolm’s childhood memories start to take shape, he realizes his father’s killing spree may not have been a surprise to everyone in his family. While Malcolm continues to investigate his past, the murder of a famous model and social media influencer sends him, Gil, Dani, and JT on the hunt for a stalker with a creepy eye for design.

Learn more about Malcolm’s past tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching 9-1-1, Bob Hearts Abishola, All Rise, Halloween Baking Championship, & Halloween Cake-Off.

Last week was the 9-1-1 season premiere we should have gotten. Granted, it would have had to run long because they had to set it up, which is why we got the premiere we did, but boy, did the action they promised us deliver. At the end of the premiere, Buck was at the pier with little Christopher, when he realized the water had all been sucked out to sea and was rushing back to land, forming a tsunami, thus bringing us to last week’s episode. While Buck was having fun at the pier with Christopher, Athena and her daughter, May, were spending time together getting manis and pedis. Because there was so much action, there’s not enough time her to do a full recap. But Buck proved how much he’s grown and how quick-thinking he is by trying to save as many people as he could, piling them all up on top of the firetruck (having been driven by the fire crew stuck now on the Ferris wheel). Unfortunately, when he was trying to rescue a few more who were floating (sort of…) by, Christopher yet again went into the water, ending the episode. Elsewhere, Athena and May got caught up in a huge traffic pileup after the tsunami caused some issues with the power lines and traffic lights. They were okay, but a woman was pretty badly injured, and May was left to handle it on her own when a downed power line cut her off from her mom, who finally was able to get rescue crews and a power guy to the location to turn off the power and rescue the woman.

Possibly the saddest, most moving story line of them all, though, was Maddie, who was on the phone with a young man trapped in his attic, with the water rising. Unfortunately, no matter what they tried, the young man drowned while on the phone with her. It was so sad, and Maddie broke down. But then her supervisor asks her to help triage – not the callers but the 9-1-1 personnel themselves, since more would be handling calls like Maddie herself had. Horrifying for all those involved, and it really makes you think of that end of things when tragedies hit.

Meanwhile, the rest of our gang was out on boats to help find & rescue people, not knowing that Buck and Christopher were in horrible danger…which leads us to tonight’s episode. They obviously can’t kill off the kid. This isn’t Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead here. LOL But that doesn’t mean we won’t get a lot of drama on tonight’s conclusion!!

On tonight’s episode, “The Searchers,” Athena, Maddie, Bobby and the 118 races to save lives after a massive tsunami hits the Santa Monica Pier and Buck fears the worst when Christopher goes missing. Rhonda Rousey guest stars.

See if Buck can find Christopher in time tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Bob Hearts Abishola, All Rise, Halloween Baking Championship, Prodigal Son, & Halloween Cake-Off.
