Happy Hump Day! We’re halfway through the week and we got through April Fools’ Day okay, so I say we’re coming out ahead of the game. There’s also some great TV on tonight, so check out our recommendations.
The last new episode of CSI was great. The CSIs were called in when an entire family was reported to have been missing for a month. All the furniture was gone, there was a homeless ex-con staying in the house, and once they started looking, they found blood everywhere in the living room. They got the furniture back from where the homeless man sold it to a Goodwill-type store. It was covered in blood splatter. In the end, the daughter, son, and mother were killers—the mother killed the woman the father was having an affair with, the son then killed the father, and once the daughter, son, and mother skipped town, the daughter killed her brother & mother. She was more than a little sociopathic or psychotic or something. Crazy.
On tonight’s episode, “The Fallen,” Russell is taken hostage after a teenager opens fire in a police station.
See if Russell makes it out alive tonight on CBS at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Melissa & Joey, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Mixology, Hot in Cleveland, Chicago PD, & The Soul Man.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.
Criminal Minds has a tendency of pushing the limits to the point that I’m almost scared to look at the screen during some scenes, which for a crime drama translates into a job well done. Last episode, we were introduced to a particularly deranged UnSub who was using dogs to infect people with rabies. That was a super creepy and very nasty episode. The rabid people were horrible. I’m happy that in the end, the team saved the day, but it was still a very disturbing and tantalizing episode.
On tonight’s episode, “Blood Relations,” the team investigates murders caused by a long-standing family rivalry. The episode is being directed by the adorable Matthew Gray Gubler. Adrienne Barbeau, Tobin Bell, & Ronnie Gene Blevins guest star.
To see Matthew’s turn behind the camera once more, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching Chicago PD, CSI, Law & Order: SVU, The 100, and American Idol.
Last week’s episode of Modern Family was a madcap romp of miscommunication and accidental room-swapping as Jay arranged for all of the adults to stay in an expensive hotel for a Vegas weekend. Cam and Mitchell ran into some friends throwing a bachelor party for Mitch’s ex, and when Cam sneaked away to the festivities, Mitch was left alone with the ex, who seemed to have not quite gotten over their break-up. Meanwhile, Phil auditioned for a secret society of magicians, while Claire caught the gambling bug while trying to recoup some old gambling losses. And Gloria tried to prevent Jay from seeing/purchasing the female counterpart to his dog butler, Barkley.
Last week’s episode was one of my favorite of the entire series so far—guest star Stephen Merchant was brilliant as the well-meaning, non-judgmental butler at the center of all of the misunderstandings. It’s great that this show can still produce laugh-out-loud episodes five seasons in! I’m looking forward to more hilarity with the Pritchett/Dunphy clan tonight.
On tonight’s episode, “A Hard Jay’s Night,” Jay invites the family over for dinner in hopes that there won’t be any of the usual drama, but he’s out of luck when Mitch is upset by the wedding-cake topper that Cam’s father whittled out of soap. Meanwhile, Phil tries to help Gloria sell her old apartment; and Claire and the kids have every intention of helping Jay get ready for his special night, but they wind up in one argument after another.
Check out all the hilarious drama tonight on ABC at 9:30/8:30c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, The Middle, Suburgatory, Modern Family, Revolution, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, The Americans, Legit, Flipping Out, Save My Bakery, and Workaholics.
