Tonight, AMC’s martial arts drama, Into the Badlands, returns for its second season. As the first season came to a close, Sunny had become close with MK and didn’t want to kill the “Dark One,” so he tried to pass off another severed head as proof of death to the River King to get passage out of the Badlands. Elsewhere, Veil had been captured by the Widow, who was forcing her to tend to her wounds from an earlier battle with Sunny. At the same time, Quinn chained Sunny in the dungeon under the suspicion that he was the traitor to his father. As Quinn took MK to a brothel, they quickly realized that it was a trap – Jacoby was waiting to kill the boy, and so Quinn sliced the boy’s hand with his sword in order to activate his blood rage. While they were fighting, Sunny showed up and stabbed and seemingly killed Quinn. But the main event that was going on at the same time was interrupted when the Brothers showed up with their glowing fists, and they easily took charge of the waking up a prisoner on a boat heading to who-knows-where.

I ended up really enjoying the short first season of this series. It provided both interesting characters and drama as well as some great fight scenes. I’m looking forward to seeing where the story goes in the second season and how they bring this group back together. Where is Sunny headed? Will Veil realize her love has been kidnapped and try to rescue him? What do the Brothers want with MK? Do they just want to train him and help him control his powers, or do they have more sinister motives? Is Quinn dead, and if so, who will become the new Baron? And will the Widow stop looking for MK?

On tonight’s premiere, “Tiger Pushes Mountain,” Sunny finds a new foe, as well as a new, unexpected ally. Meanwhile, MK learns about his gift in a mysterious place.

If you missed the first season, AMC is airing a marathon of all six episodes today, which started at 9:30am ET/PT. Otherwise, tune in tonight for the new episode at 10:05/9:05c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Time After Time, American Crime, Madam Secretary, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Making History, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, The Walking Dead, Feud: Bette and Joan, Big Little Lies, and Crashing.

Now that the mole story line is over on NCIS: LA, we can move forward with other great stories, and that started last week, when Sam went undercover as a former alias to take down a drug king pin and Callen and Anna’s romantic date got interrupted by Hetty, who asked them to pick up Asakeem from prison and escort him back to LA. Sam got a little up close and personal with the woman who turned out to be “King,” the head of the drug empire. My favorite moment had to be after they went to visit a jeweler he knew from an undercover op and robbed him. When they ran out of the store, he chased them with a gun, and Kensi and Deeks had to run in to stop him. But the best part of the whole thing was Callen and Anna and Asakeem at the diner on the road trip home, with the good ol’ boys and their guns helping to take down the bad guys who suddenly showed up, wanting to get to Asakeem.

Tonight should be a lot of fun. I always love to see Kensi and Deeks go undercover, but Nell and Eric are a lot of fun too, and tonight should be even better, since they have to go undercover as a couple. I’m grinning already, just thinking about it!

On tonight’s episode, “Getaway,” after the U.S. Treasury Department is hacked, Nell and Eric go undercover inside a couple’s retreat to track a tech-savvy husband and wife linked to the crime. Also, Digital Forensics Specialist Dave Flynn (Scott Grimes, who played this character on the defunct backdoor pilot of NCIS: Red back in 2013) arrives from the NCIS cyber office in San Diego to run ops while Eric and Nell are on assignment.

Watch the fun tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Little Big Shots, Chicago Justice, Spring Baking Championship, & Cake Wars.

It would appear that the Chicago franchise is taking over NBC with the addition of Chicago Justice, bringing the total up to four. That’s okay in my world. Recently I saw an article on an entertainment news site that said that Chicago Justice was amongst the worst new shows of the year, and I was really surprised. It may be because those critics aren’t as into the franchise as some other people, but frankly I think the show just needs a few more episodes to establish itself. Personally, I really enjoy seeing Antonio again after he left the Intelligence Unit on Chicago PD to work for the State Attorney’s office, a role that is far better suited to his high moral character. The cast as a whole is strong and has some great chemistry. Time will tell, but I think given the chance, this rookie drama can prove its worth.

Last episode was centered around a judge who was murdered, but it got very complicated when it appeared as though something had been going on between Valdez and the judge because they were at the bar together. She kept her self-respect and refused to answer any of Stone’s questions about whether or not they were together, because she felt he shouldn’t need to ask. The murder turned out to be about a lenient sentence the judge had handed down in a rape case, and it was actually the ex-husband of the victim who killed him. It was a great episode, and I’m looking forward to seeing more of Valdez’s strong character stand up to Stone, which will only make them both better in the long run.

On tonight’s episode, “Friendly Fire,” an ex-Navy SEAL is murdered when he plans on exposing the truth about a top-secret military mission, and the case is jeopardized when the U.S. Department of Justice steps in and insists evidence is classified.

Find out if they can all work together to find justice for this fallen hero tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS: LA, Little Big Shots, Guy’s Grocery Games, Spring Baking Championship, and Shades of Blue.
