If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/30/11

Thank goodness that Friday is finally here. It’s been a fabulous week of television, but is anyone else exhausted? My DVR is begging me to stop overusing it, and the Fall TV season is just getting started. Let’s take a look at what you should be watching tonight.

Last week’s season premiere of Blue Bloods was good to the last drop. I loved how Jamie (Will Estes) got his first undercover assignment. He was a natural at it, and it looks like it might lead to a bigger undercover assignment with the mob. I’ll admit it was nice to see Jamie out of his uniform, because let’s be honest, he’s easy on the eyes. The new mayor is sneaky, and I can see there is going to be a lot of drama between him and Frank (Tom Selleck).

On tonight’s episode, Danny accidentally shoots a cop who failed to identify himself and is investigated by Internal Affairs. During the probe, Danny is put on desk duty while officers try to determine his state of mind on the day of the shooting.

To see how your favorite crime fighting family handles this newest challenge, tune in to CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Blue Bloods @ Clicker.

Tonight is the season finale of Haven. Things are really tense in the town of Haven right now, what with the Rev dead after Audrey shot him before he could kill a young troubled girl and his followers still set on eliminating Haven of the troubled people—including Nathan. Audrey finally met Lucy Ripley last week, but only AFTER she planted a big smoocher on Nathan. Holy cow! Yay for us shippers. haha What will happen during the season finale? I have no idea, but I can’t wait to find out!

On tonight’s episode, “Sins of the Fathers,” ghosts from Haven’s past return to reveal shocking truths about Audrey’s, Nathan’s, and Duke’s futures. Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica) guest stars.

The season premiere of A Gifted Man brought tears, drama, and a lot of emotion. If you’re not familiar with what the show is about, or what the pilot showcased, this brilliant drama can be watched at CBS’ website. This amazing show is about a charismatic surgeon whose whole life changes when his deceased ex-wife begins to teach him the meaning of life from the great beyond.

Dr. Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson) is a phenomenal doctor who really lives a materialistic life full of luxury and is completely obsessed with his career. His world becomes shaken to the core when his ex-wife, Anna (Jennifer Ehle), an idealistic free-clinic doctor who was the love of his life, shows up. Curious about Michael’s sudden change in behavior is Michael’s ever efficient assistant Rita (Margo Martindale). When Anna asks Michael to go to her clinic in order to help keep it running, he meets Autumn (Afton Williamson) who is a volunteer that is carrying out Anna’s work with the underprivileged. Michael becomes touched by those in need he sees around him and Anna’s compassionate presence and decides to to a 360 with his life. He begins to to see that there is room in his life for everyone.

Tonight, Michael tries to save a pregnant friend who has a brain tumor, as well as a boy who has sickle-cell disease.

Last week’s Fringe really set us up for an exciting new season! Walter has become an agoraphobic mess, haunted by glimpses of an unknown Peter in reflections. FBI Agent Lincoln Lee’s investigation of his partner’s death led him to Fringe Division, which gave the series a great way to (re)introduce the characters and situations to the viewers. We also got introduced to a new form of shape-shifting beings. And we saw that there is some division among the observers, when one decided not to wipe Walter’s memories of Peter despite the group’s decision. It was an exciting return to the world of Fringe and opened up a lot of new questions regarding the role of the observers, when/how Peter will come back, and who is behind these new shape-shifters (just to name a few). It will be interesting to see how these two bridged universes work together and what will happen when Peter does return.

In tonight’s episode, “One Night in October,” when a serial killer “Over There” starts piling up victims, the Fringe Division gets involved with the investigation.

Check it out tonight on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Fringe @ Clicker.

There are so many crime dramas on television, and it’s hard to imagine two in one night that need to be watched. That’s the case with CSI: NY and Blue Bloods. You need to be tuning in to watch CSI: NY, because the cast is going deeper this season-deeper into their personal lives and also deeper into work. It’s not official, but we all knw this is basically the last season for CSI: , and I’m okay with that. It’s been a good run, and if the season premiere is any indication, this season is going to be a strong one.

On tonight’s episode, the CSIs investigate the death of a teen who tried to win over a sexy punk rocker (Aly Michalka, Hellcats) and may have ventured too far into her world.

To see what you think of this season so far, tune in to CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of CSI: NY @ Clicker.

The premiere of Nikita was exciting. I loved seeing Nikita & Michael teamed up again and together as a couple. Seeing Percy locked up was nice, too, but I’m not a big fan of Alex anymore. I get that she has a beef with Nikita, but I hope she realizes Nikita is not the enemy she believes her to be. Hopefully she’ll realize Percy (even locked up), Amanda, Division, and Oversight are the true enemies.

On tonight’s episode, while investigating an old corrupt Division program, P9, that seems to have resurfaced, Nikita and Michael run into Owen (guest star Devon Sawa). He tells them he is searching for Dr. Joseph Mars (guest star John Ralston), who is not only the mastermind behind P9, but also invented the Regimen and could help Owen wean himself off the dangerous drug. Michael is hesitant to trust Owen again, but Nikita decides the three should join forces. Percy demands to see Alex.

Don’t miss it tonight on The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Nikita @ Clicker.
