A couple weeks ago, TBS added the fun new animated sci-fi series Final Space to its Monday night lineup. Gary has spent the last 5 years alone on a prison ship Galaxy One for impersonating a captain. Gary was starting to go stir crazy with only the ship’s computer and maintenance robots to keep him company. However, that all changed when a mysterious green alien, whom Gary named Mooncake, found its way on board. Despite its friendly looks, Mooncake is actually a planet-destroying super weapon that is being hunted down by the evil Lord Commander. When his ship came under attack, Gary captured and befriended a cat-like bounty hunter named Avocato.

In last week’s episode, Gary and Avocato tracked down a bounty hunter named Terk, in order to stop him from telling Lord Commander about Mooncake’s whereabouts. However, Terk used Avocato’s missing son as bait to lure them into a trap. They came face-to-face with the Lord Commander but managed to get away, though Gary’s arm was torn off in the process. Once they got back to the ship, Kevin was fitted with a robotic arm. Meanwhile, on Earth, Quinn found evidence that a cosmic disaster—a tear in space-time—may have caused the Imperium T3 to crash, but her superiors refused to listen to her, so she decided to take things into her own hand and set off into space in a stolen ship. And back on the Galaxy One, KVN and Mooncake received a visit from a mysterious woman named Nightfall, who looked an awful lot like Quinn.

TBS has been turning out some great comedies lately. I’m really enjoying this serialized space adventure. It is both action-packed and filled with lots of adult humor. The show has fun characters, an interesting ongoing story/mystery, and each episode ends with some new twist or cliffhanger. This show will make a great binge once the entire season is over, but I’m also enjoying it week-to-week. If you haven’t yet started watching, the first three episodes are available to binge on TBS’s app/website.

On tonight’s episode, “Chapter Three,” Gary tries to hide Mooncake safely away on the planet Yarno; Gary and Avocato are trapped in a terrifying mind-puzzle; Mooncake is forced to fight in a combat arena called the Deathcropolis; Quinn investigates the gravitational disturbance.

See the crazy space fun tonight on TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Good Doctor, Good Girls, The Resident, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, iZombie, UnREAL, and The Alienist.

The Good Doctor has been having a great season so far, and I can’t believe how amazing the writing has been. On the last episode, the team focused on a young patient who needed a heart transplant, and it was a complicated case. I’m not overly thrilled with the new additions to the team in the way of Morgan and Alex (a former police officer), because the original team was just starting to work better together. This episode also brought us Jared and Claire breaking up after Jared realized Claire doesn’t love him. I knew that was coming because the writers have been foreshadowing Claire and Melendez hooking up. Truthfully, I support them getting together because I think they’ll make a fiery couple. Time will tell.

On tonight’s episode, “Pain,” when the team treats a patient who has to decide between a dangerous surgery that could change his life or remain the same, he asks Dr. Shaun Murphy what he would if he had that same choice.

To see if this new team can work together better this week, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, American Idol, The Resident, Lucifer, and Good Girls.
