Things were super climactic on The Good Place last week as the last day in the year-long afterlife experiment wound to a close. The experiment, which will determine the fate of all human souls moving forward, was conducted to determine if humans can actually improve themselves morally after they are already dead. If they can, then eternally punishing or rewarding them after death is sorta moot. With the deadline looming in under 24 hours, Eleanor and the gang were a bit stressed. They wanted to try some last-minute situations that might get their test subjects to improve themselves morally before time was up.

Michael was also learning sleight of hand “human magic,” despite the fact Janet can perform infinite real magic tricks. Jason, Tahani, & the 4 subjects were getting ready for their year one graduation, when Simone broke out her conspiracy theory board, ala Charlie Day from Always Sunny. She was certain that Michael and Eleanor were up to something sneaky and it pertained to them. Jason’s true nature as a Jacksonville DJ was exposed at this point too. Chidi told Simone that Eleanor once told him that he and Simone were soul mates. She was quite dubious but pointed at it as another weird sneaky thing. During the celebration, as Michael did his magic tricks, a giant sinkhole opened in the ground and Brent fell in, where he barely was holding on for dear life, trying to not fall all the way into the magma below. Simone and John stole Brent’s car and fled as Chidi stayed to try to rescue Brent. Chidi also fell in though. After saving them both, Eleanor & Michael “admitted” that this really wasn’t the Good Place, and they were about to be sent to the Bad Place. They pulled this stunt with less than two minutes left in the experiment, and while it did inspire a confession and complete change of heart in Brent, the clock expired as he was being open and honest to Chidi for the first time ever.

So this is exciting. Even though we have seven episodes left in the season, they are done with the experiment phase. Which means a lot of the tale is after the judge decides what the fate of our antiheroes will be. Will Chidi & Eleanor ever get back together? What about Jason & Janet? I don’t have these answers, but I will be aboard for the rest of the series till it ends in January.

On tonight’s episode, “The Funeral to End All Funerals,” the group awaits the judge’s final decision on the fate of human existence.

To see if they learn their fate, tune in to NBC at 9/8c.

My pick once again this week is #OneChicago. Boy, I’m enjoying these shows. I’ll just do a quick recap of each one with the highlights… Chicago Med: Creepy vampire kids. The girl was clearly either a really bad girl (not evil, but just…bad!) or delusional. She had the boy so snowed into thinking they were both vampires, because his medical problem caused him to be blistered by the sun. As for relationships… Ethan and April are trying to get pregnant, but while April is wanting to take a laidback approach, Ethan is all about tracking her cycles, being proactive, etc, and it’s pushing April the wrong way – so much so that she nearly kisses Dr. Marcel at the party he and Maggie threw. Thankfully Ethan didn’t see, but could this spell trouble? Guess we’ll see! Oh, and speaking of Maggie… She met a guy while getting her chemotherapy who was also there getting his. Sparks!

Then on Chicago Fire: Severide was approached by a young female lieutenant from OFI (Office of Fire Investigations) who wanted to bring him in to help with the backlog of cases, but he turned her down, said his place was there at 51. But not much later, Boden received a transfer order, sending Severide to OFI. Boden thought for a moment it was Severide’s choice, but Severide thought it was the female lieutenant. But they were both wrong. It was Grissom. Dun dun dun! Grissom had a good point, that they had to go where they were needed…and Severide has good instincts when it comes to sniffing out arsons. So they made a deal that Severide will go over to OFI to help with the backlog, and after a few months, he’ll be free to decide whether he wants to stay or return to 51. Meanwhile, Herrmann clashed with a uniformed CPD officer at a scene, and it looked like he was going to get in big trouble over it (even though he wasn’t really wrong about it and the officer was a repeat reporter douche bag), but fortunately for him, part of Severide’s deal with Grissom is that Grissom is calling off the complaint against Herrmann.

And then finally, on Chicago PD: Darius the big-time drug slinger/gang dude (played by the great Michael Beach) was pulled back in as a CI when a dangerous drug was getting put out on the streets. Things seemed to be going okay…until one of Hailey’s CIs (who had basically become a professional CI for a lot of people/organizations) thought he was smarter than he was and walked into CPD (and into Intelligence’s operational space in the basement!) and showed his face in front of Darius…who then had someone kill him. That really shook Hailey big-time. She felt responsible, but frankly, the guy was an idiot. Not that he deserved to be killed, but dang… And while I won’t spoil it, if you saw the preview for this week’s episode, you know tonight is going to be life changing. Eek!

On tonight’s Chicago Med, “Too Close to the Sun,” Maggie gets unsettling news about a new friend and breaks protocol to support him. One of the doctors from the Med family is rushed into emergency surgery after a violent assault. A social media influencer lets his users vote on medical advice, forcing Dr. Charles to make a decision.

Then on Chicago Fire, “Seeing is Believing,” Severide begins his assignment at the Office of Fire Investigation and gets off on the wrong foot when, despite his orders, he reopens an old case. When the cause of an apartment fire hits close to home, Herrmann is on a mission to get to the bottom of it. Kidd finds herself burning the candle at both ends.

Finally, on Chicago PD, “No Regrets,” after injuring herself while pursuing a suspect, Burgess receives a shocking diagnosis. A homicide case turns into a missing persons case, with a sinister twist. Voight has to decide between justice and the letter of the law.

Spend the evening in Chicago with me tonight on NBC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Guy’s Grocery Games & S.W.A.T.

Jenny’s Choice #1

The Unicorn is one of those shows that I forget between episodes just how much I adore it. I don’t know why. It happens occasionally with different shows. Usually one a season. Like, you can ask me midweek if I like it, and I’ll say, “Oh, it’s cute and funny and sweet.” But ask me right after, and I just gush about it. Well, consider me gushing. The cast on this show is brilliant. Walton Goggins is such a great fit here, but his friends really just work. And last week, when Wade realized his daughter Grace got the lead in the school musical simply because the teacher wanted her to feel better after her mother’s passing, it was so sweet watching him talk to Grace about it and tell her she could quit but then be so proud and nervous for her when she didn’t. She proved that she could do it and do it well, and I swear, that Seymour song was stuck in my head for DAYS. My other favorite part of that episode was Natalie trying to sneak more juice boxes than she was allowed and Wade using his parental vision to shut her down. As a parent myself, that just cracked me up. And of course, there was Michelle and Ben practically forcing Forrest and Delia to “volunteer” for the first time ever by signing them up to work the snack bar at the girls’ soccer games. Delia just went spastic as a pediatrician, having to give kids all that sugar and processed food. She even went so far as to go to Whole Foods and bring back…snacks like kale chips. Gag. LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Three Men Out,” when Wade visits a local hot spot to meet people instead of using his dating app, Forrest and Ben decide to be his “wing men.”

See how it goes with Wade’s “wing men” tonight on CBS at 8:31/7:31c.

I gotta say…I was a bit miffed at Chicago Med and how little Natalie was punished over her actions with the little boy a couple of episodes ago, when she locked herself in the exam room with him and gave him antibiotics over his parents’ adamant, visceral refusal. I mean, I didn’t agree with the parents at all, but still… As a parent myself, I’d have knocked the doctor out if she’d done that without my consent. Did it help that she was right? Sure, maybe a little bit. But what if she’d been wrong? I get how the hospital had to cover its behind by getting the paperwork pushed through to show they had the right to treat the boy, but even after she got arrested, she was only let out and got away with it because she’d been right. I’m hoping that the terrible character we’re dealing with now goes away soon, that maybe it’s still the TBI. I’d hoped that when she kicked Phillip to the curb, we’d get the Natalie we used to know and love back, not this person who is suffering from horribly, terribly bad judgment. I mean, COME ON. To get together with him in the first place, when his wife died not long before that?? Argh. But whatever. I can move on. 😉

Speaking of moving on… I like that Sharon decided to meet up with her ex-husband and at least give it a chance that she can find some peace, even if it never goes any further than that. And oh boy… Noah brought home the wannabe gang member girl. Can’t wait to see how that story goes!

On tonight’s episode, “Who Knows What Tomorrow Brings,” Dr. Charles and Dr. Halstead sink their teeth into a bloodthirsty case. Dr. Marcel and Maggie throw a traditional crawfish boil for the staff. A new relationship blossoms while another is left on rocky ground.

Find out which relationships are developing tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I always enjoy when sitcoms do holiday-themed episodes, but the Halloween ones are always my favorites. TV characters always seem to have the most creative costumes – way more creative than anything you typically see from your local trick-or-treaters or at an adult costume party. Plus, the writers usually have a lot of fun mixing in some spooky and supernatural storylines into these normally pretty-grounded shows. Tonight, the entire ABC Wednesday night comedy lineup is Halloween-themed. as it goes from the 80s to the 90s and the present day.

In The Goldbergs, “A 100% True Ghost Story,” Beverly scores a bargain on four paintings, but something supernatural is causing them to be destroyed; Barry decides to throw a huge Rocky Horror Picture Show-themed party against Erica’s wishes. Barry Bostwick, Steve Guttenberg, & Stephnie Weir guest star.

Then, in Schooled, “Run, Rick, Run,” Coach Mellor is excited to celebrate Halloween in a couple’s costume with Julie, but his plan might be derailed by Principal Glascott; CB tries to scare the students into not tormenting each other during the school’s annual Halloween parade.

In Modern Family, “The Last Halloween.” Phil is determined to scare Claire on Halloween; Gloria feels self-conscious about her age when someone correctly assumes she is Jay’s wife; Mitch and Cam go to the WeHo Halloween Carnival after Lily decides to go to her first Halloween party alone.

And finally, in Single Parents, “Welcome to Hell, Sickos!” the kids head to the school for a spooky Halloween celebration with Douglas; Will has a stressful night trying to do too much; Poppy and Angie throw a Halloween party at Douglas’s house to try to prove to themselves that they are cool moms.

Check out the Halloween fun tonight on ABC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Stumptown, Survivor, Riverdale, Nancy Drew, and American Horror Story: 1984.
