I had a pretty good weekend. Spent time with my boys, playing cards, watching TV and movies, and just enjoying the weekend. I’m glad it’s Monday, though, because even though it’s less busy than normal because of the holiday this week, there’s still plenty on. Check out our recommendations so you know what we consider “can’t miss.”
Last week’s Castle was uber-creepy. Two victims showed up that looked very much like Lanie & Esposito. The story wound around, finally coming back to a killer they thought had died already: 3XK. Of course, no body was ever found then, so… The scariest part was that the Lanie/Espo lookalikes had gone in and signed out all the 3XK case files and all the lab evidence. The plastic surgeon that made the female victim look like Lanie disappeared. Is she working with 3XK? Hmm. I’m sure that’ll come back to haunt them at some point. I guess we’ll see!
On tonight’s episode, “The Good, The Bad & The Baby,” a bleeding man stumbles into a church, but just before dying, he hands a mysterious bundle to the priest. When the bundle turns out to be a smiling baby boy, Castle and Beckett find themselves accidental nannies to the newborn. But when they determine the baby and the victim were not related, they discover that finding his rightful parents may be just as hard as solving the murder.
To see how Castle & Beckett handle having temporary custody of a baby tonight on ABC at 10:01/9:01c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Almost Human, How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Major Crimes, Mike & Molly, Sleepy Hollow, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, & The Blacklist.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.
Last week on How I Met Your Mother, even though his father was already remarried, Barney didn’t let that stop him from trying to get his parents back together. But Barney had some competition, as James was also hoping to reunite their mother with his own father. Meanwhile, Barney had tasked Ted with keeping track of a Wayne Gretzky photo for Robin, but when the photo was destroyed, Lilly helped him search for the saboteur. And Marshall made a pit stop to drop Daphne off to see her daughter’s model UN debate.
I’m not sure if this means the Daphne/Marshall road trip has come to an end and that he will be making the rest of the trip solo. However, unlike a lot of folks, I actually found the road trip stuff to be a lot of fun. One thing that’s great about this series is that it continues to find new ways to change things up. Tonight, they are doing that by making an all-rhyming episode! I’m looking forward to seeing how well this works.
On tonight’s episode, “Bedtime Stories,” to get his restless son to go to sleep, Marshall tells him three tales in rhyme: “Mosby at the Bat,” “Robin Takes the Cake,” and “Barney Stinson, Player King of New York City.”
To see how Marshall says good night, be sure to watch the show tonight… (see what I did there? 😉 ) on CBS at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching/recording 2 Broke Girls, Mom, Hostages, Castle, The Blacklist, Almost Human, Sleepy Hollow, and Major Crimes.
Last week, I watched the first two episodes of Almost Human with mixed feelings. As a buddy-cop show, the episodes worked mostly because of Michael Ealy as Dorian. He’s great as the droid cop and will probably be a great partner to Karl Urban’s John Kennex, who has so far been a little flat and angry. As far as the stories go, the second episode “Skin” was so much better than the pilot. The pilot relied on exposition a little too much, whereas “Skin” took the viewer on a journey so much better. It will be interesting to see where the show goes, especially with the amount of Fringe people involved in this show.
On tonight’s episode, “Are You Receiving?” Kennex and Dorian battle an intense hostage situation while Captain Maldonado attempts to meet the terrorist’s demand hoping to protect innocent people.
See if they succeed on FOX at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching Dancing with the Stars, How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Mom, and Castle.
