If We Controlled Your Remote…10/24/14

This weekend, my daughter is having her first sleepover, and I am sure that my house will be destroyed…but as long as they don’t destroy my television, I guess I’ll be okay. Speaking of TV, let’s see what we’re recommending tonight to keep everyone entertained.

bluebloods1011smallBlue Bloods is such a fantastic crime drama in my opinion because it not only covers the crime but really gives us character-changing moments every week. Last week, we watched Danny have to fight for his job when a suspect jumped out a third-story window to evade arrest but then claimed he was thrown out by Danny, who was up there with him. The only witness was a little Hispanic boy who was scared because his family was illegal, but the corrupt Reverend offered them nicer living conditions for their witness to say that Danny did throw the suspect out the window. In the end, we heard the true confession out of the little boy, thanks to a little help along the way by Frank. Another story line going on had to do with Jamie hitting on a beautiful doctor and Eddie being very jealous of it, despite saying she wasn’t. I’m surprised those two haven’t just had sex and gotten it out of their system yet, because the sexual chemistry is just oozing off them. One of my favorite moments was when Sergeant Gormley got called to Frank’s office and he thought he was getting fired, when in actuality he was offered a position very similar to Chief of Department, and after being unsure at first, he accepted. I love that the sergeant is a real honest man with no agenda other than being a good cop, and that makes me think he’s going to be amazing at this new position.

On tonight’s episode, “Loose Lips,” Jamie is targeted by a vengeful thug after he intervenes in his abusive relationship with his girlfriend. Meanwhile, Frank must deal with a political scandal involving insensitive comments made by Henry that were illegally recorded and leaked to the press.

To see how the Regans get themselves out of trouble this week, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Grimm, Hawaii Five-0, The Amazing Race, Shark Tank, Constantine, and Z Nation.

hawaiifiveo1024smallLast week’s Hawaii Five-0 was one of the best in a while. The case was good—a hit man from Detroit was killed shortly after arriving in Hawaii, and the team deduced he’d been killed by another hit man. When they caught him, he told an outlandish story about getting a heart transplant, which changed him, and he’d been unable to kill those he’d been assigned to kill after that. Instead, he’d taken them, moved them to Hawaii to a remote village, where they all lived together, away from the Mob boss who wanted them dead. Five-0 didn’t believe him until they got there and found the people, and they were able to hide them before the Mob boss and his goons got there to kill them all. They took them out or caught them all, which allowed the people to move back home, and they arrested the hit man who killed his…colleague. It was really a great, great story.

On the personal front, Chin helped Danny get the remaining money he needed to get his brother from the bad guy, Marco Reyes, but when he & Steve went to deliver the money to Reyes, he had Danny’s brother wheeled out in a barrel, dead. Danny & Steve left, only to overtake the guys upstairs and come back down, where Danny pointed a gun directly at Reyes’s forehead and pulled the trigger, killing him. It was an emotional, crazy ending to that story line, and I worry about how it’s going to affect Danny in the future.

On tonight’s episode, “Ho’oilina (Legacy),” on the fourth anniversary of his father’s death, McGarrett meets a woman who helps him reopen the last unsolved case his father worked on before his death.

See if Steve learns more about the case tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, The Amazing Race, On the Menu, Blue Bloods, Cristela, Constantine, & Z Nation.

constantine1024smallTonight is the premiere of the new series Constantine, which is based on DC’s “Hellblazer” comic book series and follows the exploits of John Constantine (Matt Ryan), a former demon hunter who reluctantly comes out of retirement to help maintain the balance of good and evil in our world. Constantine travels the country utilizing his mastery of the dark arts to track down and eliminate supernatural threats, while also looking for a way to save his own damned soul. The cast also includes Harold Perrineau (Lost) and Charles Halford (True Detective).

I have neither read the comics nor seen the Keanu Reeves film, so I don’t really have any knowledge or preconceptions of the character of John Constantine. I’m looking forward to checking out tonight’s premiere, as it sounds like this show could be a great companion to Grimm (which also returns tonight), giving NBC an exciting new 2-hour block of supernatural dramas.

On tonight’s episode, “Non Est Asylum,” Constantine gets pulled back into battling the worst hell has to offer in order to help the daughter of an old friend—and because there’s the slightest possibility of saving his own damned soul.

Check out the premiere of this new supernatural drama tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be recording The Amazing Race, Cristela, Grimm, and Z Nation.
