Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
Last week’s Grimm was a bit gruesome. An ancient Wesen ritual was back in Portland. Victims (mostly homeless men) were hung up on a wooden cross of sorts and then stabbed with a Wesen’s horn. Their blood was then collected in a cup and poured in a circle around the victim. When Monroe went undercover at one of the meetings of a group of Wesen, we saw the guy committing those crimes as part of the group – who were some of the Wesen who wanted to go public. They eventually caught the murderer, killing him right before he could kill his latest victim. Meanwhile, Eve, Trubel, and Meisner went after a group of Black Claw members or Wesen who had knowledge of them, and they were all killed but one. Eve then did her scary Wesen-powers thing and took away his mouth, eyes, and ears so he couldn’t speak, see, or hear, and once they let him stew awhile like that, he spilled what he knew.
Eve is really creepy. I mean, she’s scary powerful, but she’s also creepy in that she literally shows no emotion whatsoever. It’s frightening. What’s not scary or creepy? How much I love Nick and Adalind together. I mean, they aren’t TOGETHER together, but they’re getting closer – especially given their recent kiss. But the way they act around each other really is sweet and fun to watch. I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and there’s some great Eve stuff AND a fun Adalind scene as well – not to mention a huge step in one of the series’ mythology lines!
On tonight’s episode, “Map of the Seven Knights,” Monroe gets a call from a relative in Germany that will bring Nick closer to his ancestors. Things get complicated when the nefarious group Black Claw is also after the same artifacts. Elsewhere, Capt. Renard helps a mayoral candidate get an edge on his opponent. Meanwhile, Trubel confronts Eve about Nick and Adalind.
See what Nick learns tonight on NBC at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Amazing Race, Last Man Standing, American Diner Revival, Hawaii Five-0, Second Chance, Blue Bloods, Guy & Hunter’s European Vacation, & Burgers, Brew & ’Que.

Last week’s episode of Blue Bloods was fantastic, and I loved every minute of it, partially because it was nice to see Nicky get a story line more focused on her and also because Frank was upset dealing with a case involving the church being robbed.
Nicky was arrested along with three friends after being pulled over for a broken tail light, but her friends were mouthing off to the police, so they looked in the backseat, where they found cocaine. No one would fess up to who the cocaine belonged to, so the officers had no choice but to arrest all four. Once at the precinct, they realized that Nicky was one of “those” Reagans, and she got put in the captain’s office to wait instead of in holding. Erin wasn’t pleased that Nicky was receiving special treatment, especially because she could tell Nicky was lying about knowing who the drugs belonged to, so she told the officers to throw her into holding with the others until morning. Eventually, Erin convinced Nicky that these drug charges were serious and wouldn’t be going away, and that got Nicky working to figure it out. Thanks to Frank relaying information through someone else, Nicky figured out how to bluff her friend into confessing. Thankfully, all charges against her were dropped, but this whole situation didn’t make Erin’s relationship with the Bronx ADA any better, so I believe we’ll see more of those issues later.
On the other front, Frank was upset that Father Quinn had known that Mason had stolen the money from the church and that the Father had also bailed Mason out in the past because he believed more than anything, the boy need tough love. Father Quinn informed Frank that it wasn’t his place and he didn’t understand. Unfortunately for Father Quinn, Mason went crazy and ended up shooting him during a scuffle for the gun Mason had. Turned out Father Quinn knew that Mason’s father had killed his mother right in front of him and that he understood that the boy was only acting out because of this. Frank has a point when he said that sometimes hitting rock bottom is the only way to get back up, and perhaps Father Quinn should have let Mason take responsibility for his actions so that he could learn. In the end, it all worked out and the Father would survive.
I’m looking forward to the writers branching out to the other family members more often, because it’s interesting to see things from everyone’s perspectives.
On tonight’s episode, “Fresh Start,” Erin is overwhelmed with guilt after a man she set free is accused of killing a cop. Also, Frank and Mayor Poole continue their game of political chicken over Frank’s reappointment as commissioner, and Danny and Baez investigate a case of a cop who has gone AWOL.
Find out if the mayor will finally make it official tonight on CBS at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, The Amazing Race, Grimm, and Girl Meets World.
In the wee hours of the morning, Netflix dropped the entire 10-episode first season of the new Judd Apatow comedy series Love. Hopelessly-romantic nice guy Gus (Paul Rust, Super Fun Night) is still getting over his recent break-up when he meets wild-child Mickey (Gillian Jacobs, Community), who has some problems of her own. The two hit it off immediately and embark on a friendship that could lead to more. The series explores the joys and challenges of the modern dating world as these two look for love. The series also stars Dave Allen (Freaks and Geeks), Steve Bannos (Freaks and Geeks), Chris Witaske, Chantal Claret (lead singer of Morningwood), Briga Heelan (Ground Floor), and David King (Workaholics). Plus, it looks like there will be a bunch of recognizable guest stars like Brett Gelman (Married) and Andy Dick (NewsRadio) popping up throughout the season.
While I have only seen trailers, the series appears to have that same blend of comedy and drama that can be found in all of Apatow’s films. Since I’ve enjoyed his films, I look forward to checking out this first season, especially knowing that Netflix has already ordered a second, so there will be even more story to come.
Check out the entire first season available now on Netflix!
I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, Grimm, Sleepy Hollow, Second Chance, and Childrens Hospital.
