brooklyn99126smallAhh, how I love Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The show never fails to make me laugh. Like last week, when Jake mentioned a famous author who had a stalker, and Terry freaked out because the guy was his hero. Jake decided to get the case transferred to them so Terry could meet him. In the end, Terry was disappointed because what he thought the author had autographed to him when he was a kid really had been written by the man’s (now ex-) assistant, who turned out to be the author’s stalker. Terry was hysterical the whole show, from freaking out about meeting him to ripping the three-inch book in half in anger after finding out about the signature. Jake was just as funny. I loved his stories about pantsing his heroes (five of the NY Knicks?! LOL)…and then pantsing Terry at the end!

Of course, then there was the just as funny side story of Captain Holt and Kevin arguing about a math problem and seeking Amy’s opinion. She was so eager to help, but she clearly didn’t see it coming that she would side with Kevin over her beloved Captain Holt! Her conversation with Rosa about them being her dads was hysterical, and so was Rosa’s telling Captain Holt that he needed to “get some.” Oh my word. I cracked up, especially with Captain Holt’s reaction and then coming in later on and being happier because he did, indeed, “get some.” LMAO

On tonight’s episode, “The Overmining,” Captain “CJ” (guest star Ken Marino) is having major problems with a big case, and Jake and Holt find the motivation to help him out. Inside the precinct, war ensues when Terry enforces a green initiative and tells Gina to get rid of her precious space heater, while Rosa and Boyle take a break from the night shift to visit a foot massage parlor.

See if Jake and Captain Holt can help “CJ” and why tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, NCIS, American Housewife, Bull, MasterChef, Aftermath, Chicago Fire, & NCIS: NOLA.

freshofftheboat126smallFresh Off the Boat is always one of the highlights of my Tuesday nights. Last week, Jessica was in heaven when she discovered Costco, and her weekly trips there with bargain-shopping partner Evan were like a religious experience. However, when Evan’s friend invited him to join his family at church one Sunday, this quickly became his new Sunday tradition, and Jessica was left to make her spiritual trips alone. Meanwhile, Marvin treated Louis to a free teeth-whitening as a thank-you for the free meal Louis had given him at Cattleman’s Ranch, but his shockingly-bright new smile was a little too insense. And when Jessica told Eddie and Emery they had to finish the entire bargain pack of mini cereal before she would buy more, they experimented with making krispy treats out of all of the healthy cereal that was left over, in hopes that it would be more palatable.

I really look forward to the weekly misadventures of the Huang family. It seems like no matter which family members get paired up each week, there’s always something hilarious going on. I also enjoy the show’s ’90s nostalgia. I remember when Costco first showed up here, and while it was exciting, I don’t think anyone could appreciate the bargains as much as Jessica!

On tonight’s episode, “The Taming of the Dads,” Eddie takes Alison to see a modern remake of Romeo and Juliet for their anniversary, but Alison fears that their relationship has lost its spark; Jessica is called for jury duty; and Emery and Evan struggle with raising a digital pet.

Spend some quality time with the Huang family tonight on ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., This Is Us, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, Scream Queens, The Flash, No Tomorrow, Sweet/Vicious, Good Behavior, and Shooter.

bull126smallBull is by far one of the most fascinating new shows on television today, and I have been loving it. Last week’s episode was a particularly emotional one, when Bull helped to prove a girl was innocent of murdering her rapist. The poor girl was going to rot in prison for a murder she didn’t commit, even if the guy deserved it, but Bull helped her get free. I really love watching the interactions between Bull and everyone around him, because his brain really works in a complex matter. It would be great to see Bull get romantically involved and how he deals with a relationship.

On tonight’s episode, “Too Perfect,” Bull’s efforts to assist with his ex-wife Isabella’s
defense in a wrongful death lawsuit are hindered by unresolved issues from their marriage and her longstanding rift with her brother, Benny.

To see how Bull handles this blast from the past, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS, The Voice, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chicago Fire, This Is Us, and NCIS: New Orleans.
