I’m still really enjoying The Brave. I love all the characters and the story lines. Last week was a tense one, when the team went over to Afghanistan to interrogate a former US soldier turned member of the Taliban to find out which military base the group was targeting next. Patricia actually went out into the field with the team this time because of her skills as an interrogator. Unfortunately, while they were there at the prison, a guard colluded with one of the prisoners, which allowed the prisoners to kill the guards and take over the prison in order to escape. After some trial and error at finding a way out of the prison, they made their own with explosives, taking the American prisoner with them. Thankfully, even though they were chased, shot at, and nearly blown up by some of the bad guys, our guys escaped relatively unharmed – and Patricia was able to get the location of the target from the prisoner.

What I really enjoyed was the episode’s opening and ending, with Patricia gathering dirt from Afghanistan – a physical reminder of her son, who died while serving overseas. I also really enjoyed seeing Jaz set up her sniper position with the motion sensor, and when it went off, she just calmly switched guns and shot without much more than a glance, knowing whoever was coming up without warning was a bad guy. And finally, with Patricia away from the office, Noah was left in charge. And although Hannah teased him about showing up in a suit and tie, he really did a great job filling in for Patricia, making the tough call when needed. It was great to see him stepping up and taking charge. I’m going to be very, very sad if this show doesn’t get picked up for a full season!

On tonight’s episode, “Enhanced Protection,” when Ambassador Charles Webb (guest star Ben Cain) is in danger while stationed in Nigeria, Dalton’s team heads to the region to find a situation different than they expected. Jaz makes a connection with a little girl she meets during the mission, and Patricia receives some personal news. D.K. Uzoukwo, Amanda Warren, and Jimmy Jean-Louis also guest star.

See what situation they find themselves in tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Dancing with the Stars, 9JKL, The Gifted, Halloween Baking Championship, & Scorpion.

Just in time for the Halloween season, tonight Food Network launches the new series Freaky Sweets with a special double-episode premiere. While Food Network’s official website for the series has absolutely no information (not even a photo!), star Barbarann Kym has posted a short teaser on her Twitter and Facebook feeds. From this video, the show looks like it will be an Ace of Cakes style series, with the custom cake designer and her team creating spooky cakes and confections commissioned by an odd assortment of customers. Some of her creations look pretty impressive, and I’m looking forward to checking out tonight’s premiere to see what this series is really all about!

On tonight’s first episode, “Creepy Dolls and Viking Brawls,” Barbarann and her team are asked to build a haunted, talking doll cake for the Seattle Museum of Haunted History’s 13th anniversary; the Mayor of Poulsbo asks for a Viking-inspired cake for the town’s annual Viking Festival. Then, in “Cakes from the Crypt,” Barbarann and her team are asked to build a classic horror movie-inspired cake for 500 horror fans at the Crypticon Convention; an upside-down, tattoo-inspired and heart-shaped wedding cake that includes life-like replicas of the couple’s dogs.

Check out what could be a fun new show tonight on Food Network starting at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Good Doctor, The Big Bang Theory, Me, Myself & I, Lucifer, The Gifted, and Supergirl.

The Good Doctor is an incredible new show, and I love how emotionally vulnerable it makes me. Every single episode has a moment that brings me to tears, and yet there is another moment that makes me laugh at the obscure things that Shaun says or does. Last week, Shaun ended up helping diagnose a young woman’s serious health issue, which helped save her life. We also watched as baby with a tumor was operated on in the womb while the mother was on bypass. It was incredibly moving.

On tonight’s episode, “Point Three Percent,” while in the exam area of St. Bonaventure Hospital, Dr. Shaun Murphy encounters a young patient who looks eerily similar to his deceased brother, Steve. After discovering his parents have hidden his diagnosis from him, Shaun struggles to understand why he doesn’t deserve to hear the truth about his own health. Meanwhile, the team can’t figure out what keeps triggering their patients’ increasingly severe allergic reactions and races to find the cause before the next one kills another patient.

To find out if Shaun can handle the case with the young boy who looks like his brother, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Lucifer, The Voice, Scorpion, and The Brave.

    It looks like Freaky Sweets may be a burn off of a rejected show especially if Food Network isn’t bothering to promote it.
