hawaiifiveo213smallLast week’s Hawaii Five-0 was great, especially for Kono fans. Five-0 was hunting down at criminal who’d never been seen. When Kono was left at the hospital guarding the prisoner/informant/witness, we found out that the female shooting victim was actually the bad guy. She began chasing Kono and the prisoner/informant/witness (who’d been shot in the stomach) around the hospital. Kono put him in the laundry room, where he hid in a big laundry tub, as she tried to lead the woman away from him. There was a huge fight when the woman caught up with her, and Kono finally put her down by grabbing the paddles and shocked her—which sent her flying away from the gurney and into the wall. It was awesome. At the beginning of the episode, Kono had admitted to Adam that his ties to his family’s business bothered her, even though he was trying to make it all legitimate. In the end, after the fight with the bad guy/girl, she went to him, interrupting his meeting, and told him she loved him and wanted to be his wife. Cue the feels! It was great. I love her and Adam, and it’s nice to see a stable relationship on that show, where no one dies or leaves!

On tonight’s episode, “E ‘Imi pono (Searching for the Truth),” when a journalist is killed, Five-0 must use his past reporting to hunt down a presumed dead Congolese warlord who is alive and well living on Oahu. Also, as Valentine’s Day approaches, Danny overreacts when Grace’s texts to a boy start accidently coming up on his cell phone. Barkhad Adbi guest stars as the Congolese warlord.

Watch Danny overreact to his little girl growing up tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 12 Monkeys, Grimm, King of the Nerds, Love Lust or Run, & Blue Bloods.

glee213smallIf you are one of the folks who gave up on Glee a while back, with just 7 episodes left, it’s time to get back on board. I’ve been really impressed with this final season—the series has managed to recapture the fun and magic it once had. The music is great, the stories entertaining, and it feels like they are trying to properly wrap things up for each of the characters.

Last week’s theme was Burt Bacharach, and the glee club members dealt with the idea of love. Brittany told her parents (fun guest stars Jennifer Coolidge and Ken Jeong) about her engagement, who were thrilled—and we also learned that Stephen Hawking is Brittany’s real father. However, things didn’t go over as well for Santana, who was afraid to tell her abuela about the wedding because she knew she wouldn’t accept her lifestyle. Meanwhile, Mercedes showed up for a visit and made it her mission to rekindle Rachel’s Broadway dreams by getting her an audition for a musical.

Tonight, the series takes advantage of the popularity of Amazon’s Transparent and kicks off its own transgender storyline as Coach Beist returns to the school…as a man. I’m interested to seeing how the series approaches this subject. As for the rest of the gang—will Rachel head back to NYC and The Great White Way, and what would that mean for Samchel? Will there be a Klaine reunion to make Sue happy? And how will the eventual singing battle between the Warblers, New Directions, and Vocal Adrenaline play out? Does Vocal Adrenaline even trust Mr. Schue anymore after what happened at the meet?

On tonight’s episode, “Transitioning,” Will takes a stand and teaches a lesson in tolerance to bullies in Vocal Adrenaline. Meanwhile, Rachel discovers her childhood home has been sold, and New Directions rallies to help her with the transition.

See how Will teaches a lesson in tolerance tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Constantine, Grimm, King of the Nerds, 12 Monkeys, Helix, Banshee, and Newsreaders.

bluebloods213smallFriday nights are one of my favorite nights to relax and watch TV—especially because the evening is full of shows that make me incredibly happy. Blue Bloods is definitely one of those shows, and last week’s episode didn’t fail to entertain, with a few great story lines going on. First we had Danny and Baez investigating the death of a teacher who was living in the low-rental side of a fancy apartment building and also dating a rich girl from upstairs. Turns out that the girl’s father killed him because he didn’t take the money he offered to stop dating his daughter. The second story followed a bank robbery gone bad, where a cop was shot but only one suspect was in custody. The suspect in custody was in the hospital, where Eddie and Jamie grilled him for answers to where the shooter was. The guy refused to speak for the longest time. Later, when the suspect was told that he was dying from sepsis, he decided to do the right thing and gave Jamie the information. Jamie was a kind guy in return and brought the guy’s mom there to be with him while he passed. Finally, a buddy of Gormley’s was doing shady real estate deals, and Frank wanted Gormley to deal with it—eventually he did and showed everyone that he does have the strength to do this job. I loved this episode, but I really want to see Jamie move up as a detective because he’s very good at what he does.

On tonight’s episode, “Power Players,” when a star witness in a double murder case drops out, Erin is tasked with bringing a protected mob informant back to New York for a case and keeping him safe, with help from Danny and Baez. Also, Frank enters into tense negotiations with Mayor Poole about police officer benefits.

To see how Erin makes out, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Grimm, 12 Monkeys, Hart of Dixie, Hawaii Five-0, and Constantine.
