quantico927smallJoining ABC’s Sunday lineup tonight is the new drama Quantico. There has been a major terrorist attack on New York City, and the FBI suspect that it may have been initiated by a sleeper agent within the organization. As the investigation happens in the present, the show jumps back nine months earlier as a diverse crop of new trainees enters the FBI academy in Quantico, VA. Could one of these new recruits be the terrorist who masterminded the attack?

In the opener, we meet all the trainees, learn some of their secrets, and see some shifty behavior that makes all of them look like potential suspects. At the heart of the series is Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra), a tough, independent young woman who has a knack for reading people and noticing small details. The other agents include former Marine Ryan Booth (Jake McLaughlin, Believe), Mormon Eric Packer (Brian Jacob Smith, Stargate Universe), devout Muslim Nimah Amin (Yasmine Al Massri, Crossbones), girl-next-door Shelby Wyatt (Johanna Braddy, UnREAL), former CPA Simon Asher (Tate Ellington, The Mindy Project), golden boy Caleb Haas (Graham Rogers, Revolution), and instructors Liam O’Connor (Josh Hopkins, Cougar Town) and Miranda Shaw (Aunjanue Ellis, The Book of Negroes).

When I first saw the ads for the series, I had written it off as Grey’s Anatomy meets How To Get Away With Murder. However, I was pleasantly surprised by tonight’s premiere – it introduces some interesting characters, premise, and central mystery. It mixes some humor in with the drama and gives viewers some very unexpected and exciting twists. I look forward to seeing how it all plays out in the coming weeks as I try to figure out which of the recruits is hiding the biggest secret of them all!

On tonight’s premiere, “Run,” the new recruits arrive at the FBI Academy, where they are tasked with discovering a redacted secret about one of their classmates.

Meet the new recruits tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording CSI, Once Upon a Time, Blood & Oil, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, The Strain, The Great Food Truck Race, Fear the Walking Dead, Project Greenlight, and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

csi927smallIf you’re a big fan of procedurals like I am, you’re probably very excited for the 2-hour movie/series finale of CSI tonight. When the show ended in February and then it wasn’t picked up, it was speculated that we could possibly get a movie to wrap it up, and sure enough, it’s here. The finale was all about the Gig Harbor killer and his twin brother, also a killer. Meanwhile, Winthrop (Gig Harbor’s twin brother) beat up Julie Finlay, and she was in a coma, unresponsive, when the show ended. And finally, Nick took a job as head of the crime lab in San Diego.

Neither Elisabeth Shue (Finlay) nor George Eads are supposed to be on tonight’s finale movie, but hopefully we’ll at least get a mention and hear that Finlay’s doing well! Of course, the big news for shippers is that Grissom is back. He and Sara split up, although I don’t remember if they actually got a divorce or not. But from the previews, there is definitely hope for them!

On tonight’s 2-hour finale movie, “Immortality Parts I and II,” Grissom and Willows return to help the CSI team solve a catastrophic case that paralyzes all of Las Vegas. Past and current series stars scheduled to appear include William Petersen, Marg Helgenberger, Ted Danson, Jorja Fox, Eric Szmanda, Robert David Hall, Paul Guilfoyle, Wallace Langham, David Berman, Elisabeth Harnois and Jon Wellner. Also, Melinda Clarke returns as Lady Heather.

Don’t miss what is sure to be an emotional farewell for this long-time show tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Great Food Truck Race, Cutthroat Kitchen, & Quantico.

brooklyn99927smallBrooklyn Nine Nine is one of my favorite comedies on television, so I am super excited that tonight is the season premiere. Andy Samberg is simply one of the brightest points of my week because he is always hilarious and I am constantly surprised by the things that he does. When we left off last season, the captain had been transferred from the Nine-Nine, and it’s going to be hard for the entire unit to adjust. I highly doubt that it’s going to stick, because let’s be honest, the Nine-Nine needs him and especially Jake. Another story line that I’m interested to see unfold is Jake and Amy. Those two need to be a couple now. I love them together, and they need each other.

On tonight’s premiere, “New Captain,” after Holt is transferred to the NYPD Department of Public Relations, the new captain’s (guest star Bill Hader) arrival causes the precinct to dissolve into chaos, despite Terry’s best efforts to keep everyone on point. Meanwhile, Jake and Amy face the aftermath of their “for reals” kiss.

To see how long the new captain lasts, tune in to FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching Once Upon a Time, Quantico, Blood & Oil, Guy’s Grocery Games, CSI, The Great Food Truck Race, and Cutthroat Kitchen.
