ncisla928smallLast week was the season premiere of NCIS: LA, still one of my favorite shows, seven seasons in. The episode was almost all about Callen, which I’m kind of getting tired of. Don’t get me wrong… I love him. But isn’t it time to focus on one of the other members of the team? Kensi, Deeks, and Sam all have stories to tell too! But back to Callen… He was searching for Arkady, who we last saw in the season finale, after he’d been shot and the team had to leave him in the parking garage. To do that, Callen was lone-wolfing it, trying to do it all alone, and the others weren’t happy about it – especially Granger and Hetty. In the end, it all calmed down, and while Callen is still looking for Arkady, he’s not going to be going it alone as much. In addition to that, we got to hear the first (to us) “I love you”s from Kensi and Deeks, and Anatoli Kirkin was back to embarrass Deeks every time he mentioned the naked bath from last season.

This should be another good episode for fans of Deeks and Densi shippers, as we get to meet Deeks’s mom! And with Talia back, it should be fun!

On tonight’s episode, “Citadel,” DEA Agent Talia Del Campo (Mercedes Mason)
turns to the team for help after her partner is murdered. Also, after Kensi grows suspicious that Deeks is hiding something, he surprises her by introducing her to his mother (Pamela Reed).

Meet Deeks’s mom and see if the team can solve the murder and keep Talia safe tonight on CBS at 9:59/8:59c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Rachael Ray’s Kids Cook-Off, Life in Pieces, Minority Report, Scorpion, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Blindspot, & Castle.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

gotham928smallI am enjoying this second season of Gotham way more than I did the first. In last week’s premiere, Alfred and Bruce finally managed to break into the secret Wayne Manor vault, only to find a letter from Bruce’s father saying that he was paranoid that someone was going to try to kill him and Bruce’s mother. Meanwhile, Harvey Bullock had left the force and Jim Gordon had been demoted to traffic cop, but when Gordon had an altercation with his new partner, this gave the commissioner the excuse he needed to fire him. So James went to the Penguin to call in a favor in order to get his job back. However, in exchange, Gordon had to rob a man who owed the Penguin some money. There were some complications during the robbery, and Gordon ended up killing the man. Elsewhere, a mysterious man named Theo Galavan secretly helped a group of Arkham Asylum inmates escape from prison.

Who is this mysterious evil benefactor, and what kind of nefarious plans does he have for Jerome, Barbara, and the four others he helped escaped? How will Gordon react to Barbara being back out in the world? And what evil will be wrought upon the citizens of Gotham next?

I’ve already seen a screener of tonight’s episode and thoroughly enjoyed it (so much so that I also watched next week’s episode immediately afterwards). Jerome makes such a creepy villain, and while he’s definitely over-the-top, he doesn’t feel campy like Fish did. While the producers haven’t said that he is the Joker, he certainly looks and acts the part. If the rest of the season is as tense, exciting, and action-packed as the next two episodes, I can’t wait to see more!

On tonight’s episode, “Knock, Knock,” Gordon investigates the inmate escape from Arkham Asylum; Galavan plots his next move; Bruce’s quest to unlock the secrets of his father’s office leads him to an old friend of his father’s; and Nygma wants to ask Kristin Kringle on a date.

See Gordon’s investigation and learn who Bruce meets tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Life in Pieces, Castle, Blindspot, Minority Report, Significant Mother, Switched at Birth, Chasing Life, Awkward., and Faking It.

blindspot928smallLast week, Blindspot opened to great reviews, and I am one of those who absolutely loved this show. The whole story idea is incredibly complex, which is going to make for an intriguing and suspenseful season. It’s fantastic how we get right to the point in the first few minutes of the show instead of how some shows take us on a ride for a couple of episodes before tipping their hand.

Last episode we were introduced to Jane Doe when she was found in a duffel bag in Times Square, naked, covered in tattoos – one of which was Agent Kurt Weller’s name. This had Weller drawn into the case, and as they unraveled the tattoos on Jane’s body, they led them to a mystery involving Chao, a Chinese man who was plotting to bomb the Statue of Liberty. Weller and Jane ended up stopping him with a fantastic shot by Jane, which put Chao in hospital and saved Weller’s life. During the shooting, Jane had a flashback and remembered some mystery man who was training her to shoot in the woods. This lined up with the theory of the agents that she’s actually a Navy Seal, due to a tattoo they found covered up on her body. Later we saw this mystery man show up in Chao’s hospital room. Chao said he did his part, but the man killed him anyway. Finally, we saw a flashback that had Jane with the mystery man about to inject her with the medication that would erase her memory, and she agreed to it. This definitely thickens the plot.

On tonight’s episode, “A Stray Howl,” the team unlocks a cryptic tattoo that points to Major Arthur Gibson (guest star Robert Eli), an Air Force pilot with a painful past and a lethal agenda. Jane continues to search for clues to her identity and is haunted when flashes of a disturbing memory force her to question her past. Meanwhile, Weller thinks he might know Jane’s true identity.

To fall in love with this amazing mystery as much as I have, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Minority Report, The Big Bang Theory, Gotham, Rachel Ray’s Kids Cook-Off, Scorpion, and NCIS: LA.
