If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/31/17

Happy Halloween! Have a safe & fun holiday, from all of us here at TV Is My Pacifier!

I’m of mixed emotions about tonight’s Major Crimes season premiere. I’m excited because it’s back and it promises to be another great season…but I’m also sad because it’s the final season. After 7 seasons of The Closer and now starting the 6th season of Major Crimes, these characters couldn’t feel more like family if they tried. I’ll miss them all – but Provenza and Flynn will always have a spot on my favorite characters of all-time list.

When we last left off six months ago (our time – I have no idea how long it’ll have been on the show…), the squad was chasing the bomber who was blowing up people in a case of romance gone bad. He then began targeting the Major Crimes squad…finally ending up causing an explosion that took out their entire squad room. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem like anyone was hurt, and they got the guy. But this means we come back tonight to a whole new set, which should be a lot of fun, especially since this is the last season of the show. Phillip Stroh is back this season, and in December the show will hit its 100th episode just before the series finale in January. So it’s going to be an action-packed, fun final season, and I can’t wait to get started tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Sanctuary City, Pt 1,” when three fifteen-year-old boys vanish from a Catholic school field trip, new Asst. Chief Mason orders Major Crimes to treat their disappearance as a critical missing. Meanwhile, Sharon receives more evidence that Phillip Stroh may be returning to Los Angeles.

See if the boys can be found safe tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRIng NCIS, Impractical Jokers, The Little Couple, MasterChef Canada, The Mayor, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

In addition to their never-ending list of original series, Netflix also creates some pretty entertaining original movies. A couple weeks ago they released the comedy horror film The Babysitter. The film centers around shy, lonely 12-year-old Cole (Judah Lewis, Game of Silence). He’s a bit of a wimp and is always getting picked on. His parents (Leslie Bibb, American Housewife, & Ken Marino, Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later) spend a lot of nights away at hotels trying to fix their broken relationship. So Cole is often left with babysitter Bee (Samara Weaving, Ash vs Evil Dead, Home and Away). Cole doesn’t mind too much because he has a crush on the attractive young woman. One night, while his parents are away, Cole decides to spy on Bee and her friends to see what they get up to when he’s supposed to be asleep. But things quickly take a very dark, unexpected turn. The film also stars a bunch of other recognizable faces, including Robbie Amell (The X-Files, The Flash), Hana Mae Lee (Pitch Perfect films), Bella Thorne (Famous in Love, Scream: The TV Series), Emily Alyn Lind (Revenge), and Andrew Bachelor (Black Jesus).

I just checked this out last night and thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it would make a great Halloween night movie recommendation. The film is directed by McG (Charlie’s Angels, This Means War, the pilots of Chuck & Lethal Weapon) and has this great blend of horror and humor. It is an entertaining roller-coaster of a ride that pokes fun at a lot of horror movie cliches while also executing a lot of the same tropes itself. While I don’t get phased by it, I wanted to give a warning for those who don’t like the sight of blood: There is quite a bit of ridiculous, over-the-top gore.

Check out The Babysitter now on Netflix.

I’ll be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, This Is Us, The Flash, American Horror Story: Cult, and Chrisley Knows Best.

I have loved NCIS: New Orleans from the very start, but this season I’m especially hooked. Last week’s episode when Sebastian was under investigation for a shooting where he claimed the suspect had a gun but it was nowhere to be found… I was on the edge of my seat. Thankfully the team worked hard to prove he was innocent, and Pride made sure he fought extremely hard to guarantee Sebastian was cleared.

I’m looking forward to more intensity this season overall but really want to see LaSalle and Percy get together before this season ends. It’s time for that to be officially a relationship.

On tonight’s episode, “Acceptable Loss,” the murder of a petty officer leads Pride and his team to a mysterious woman who is targeting men with high-security clearance. Also, Lasalle’s father, Beau, arrives in town to discuss the family business.

To see how LaSalle handles his father’s visit, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS, Bull, The Voice, This Is Us, and Chopped.
