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!
Tonight, ABC adds another Shondaland series to its Thursday-night lineup: The Catch. Alice Vaughan (Mireille Enos, The Killing) runs one of LA’s top private investigation firms, with extremely rich and powerful clients. However, things get personal when her fiancé Benjamin Jones (Peter Krause, Parenthood, Six Feet Under) cons her out of millions. She begins a thrilling cat-and-mouse game of payback and revenge, with the assistance of her partner Valerie Anderson (Rose Rollins, Bosch), resourceful PI Danny Yoon (Jay Hayden, Battleground), and newest/youngest member of the firm, hacker/in-house counsel Sophie Novak (Elvy Yost, Oldboy). Meanwhile, FBI Agent Jules Dao (Jacky Ido, Inglorious Basterds) is also after Jones and his team – mastermind Margot Bishop (Sonya Walger, Parenthood) and partner-in-crime Reginald Lennox III (Alimi Ballard, CSI).
I enjoyed tonight’s premiere way more than I expected to. It has a very slick, fast-paced style, with lots of split-screen action and makes great use of music. While Shonda Rhimes is an executive producer, I’m not sure how involved she is in the actual show – it didn’t feel like a typical Shondaland show in the writing. In either case, I’m looking forward to checking out more of this fun thriller, seeing how it plays out from week to week and if they can keep up the same kind of caper fun and excitement.
On tonight’s premiere, “The Pilot,” Alice is conned out of millions by her fiancé and begins her mission to get payback in the series premiere of this drama about a top-notch private investigator who experiences life from her clients’ perspectives when she becomes the victim of fraud.
See how Alice gets conned tonight on ABC at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, You, Me and the Apocalypse, Recipe for Deception, and 60 Days In.

There was a period of time where I wasn’t really as interested in Grey’s Anatomy anymore, but that time has definitely passed. I have been very pleased with the fresh story arcs that have been taking place this season, as well as with the fantastic way the characters are all changing and giving us more to learn about them. Truthfully, the show itself was starting to get a little stagnant with our favorite doctors all ending up in vicious circles of mundane behavior, but thankfully we are getting back to the drama we love so much.
On last week’s episode, Richard decided that the interns were getting too comfortable on the services they had been working on, so he made them draw names out of a bedpan (Thank God a clean one) to see which Attending they’d be with that shift. Meredith was upset because she lost Penny and got Jo, which is ironic because originally she didn’t want Penny but now they have a good working relationship and Meredith really isn’t a fan of Jo. It was a growing experience for Jo, seeing as she finally learned to stand up to Meredith and tell her to go get her own boyfriend – to which Meredith told Jo that she didn’t hate her but she was just protective over Alex because of all that he’s been through. I’m glad these two finally came to an understanding, because that tension was getting a bit overwhelming. Speaking of relationships and tension… That hot Army surgeon has been calling Meredith a lot, but she’d been ignoring him – which only goads him on, leading him to come to Seattle to ask her out in person. Score one for the hot surgeon, because it’s a very ballsy move to come face-to-face to make someone either say yes or reject you. She said yes.
April has been putting off telling Jackson about the pregnancy, but Arizona wasn’t happy with that and kept pushing. She was even more unhappy when April chose not to have genetic testing done because she feels it’s an unnecessary risk. When April finally found the guts to talk to Jackson, she tracked him down, only to find Arizona there already telling him. If I was April, I would be furious. That definitely isn’t Arizona’s place to tell him, and as usual, she overstepped her boundaries. I really hope that April and Jackson can work this out and hopefully get a happy ending. It was a good episode, and I am anxious for this week’s episode to see the fallout from this pregnancy debacle.
On tonight’s episode, “I Am Not Waiting Anymore,” Jackson learns about April’s pregnancy, while Alex and the team of doctors handles an hours-long triple-organ transplant surgery. Meredith considers dating again, and Andrew insists on not receiving special treatment after he and Maggie go public.
To see how Jackson reacts and just how insane Alex’s surgery gets, tune in to ABC at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching Scandal, The Catch, and Shades of Blue.
