Hawaii Five-0 is back tonight, and I’m so anxious to see what happened after last season’s finale, when Steve was supposedly shot. Most of the finale was all about hunting down Aaron Wright, which involved him hacking the emergency alert system to cause panic that there was an incoming missile in order for him to get away. But they figured out where he was headed – a private airfield – and though they didn’t get there in time to stop him, Jerry brilliantly hacked the plane’s systems and caused it to start losing fuel. Rather than crash and burn, Wright turned the plane around and landed…right into police custody. That leads us back to the gunshot at Five-0 headquarters.

Omar Hassan’s wife wanted to come by with her young son to make “amends” for her husband’s reign of terror and end the cycle of violence. The visit seemed to go well, but on the way out, she shoved her kid off to the side, pulled out a white plastic gun, and fired it in Steve’s direction off-camera.

So was Steve shot? Did someone else jump in front of the bullet? From the description of tonight’s episode, it sure seems like someone maybe died, but I haven’t heard of anyone leaving…so who knows! Also, Katrina Law joins the cast as Quinn Liu.

On tonight’s episode, “Ua ’eha ka ’ili i ka maka o ka ihe (Hawaiian for ‘The skin has been hurt by the point of the spear’),” a new ally helps McGarrett and Five-0 when mob bosses on the island are being targeted by an assassin. Also, Five-0 says goodbye to one of their own. Rob Morrow guest stars.

Don’t miss it tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Great British Baking Show, American Housewife, & Blue Bloods.

Tonight, Syfy’s action-packed vampire drama Van Helsing returns for its fourth season. As the third season came to a close, Vanessa was on a mission to eliminate the fourth Elder, but as she arrived at Renfield House, she learned that she and Sam would be battling it out to become the final Elder. As part of the process, the Oracle forced each of them to kill someone they loved – for Sam it was Mohamad, and for Vanessa, it was her sister. Scarlett offered herself up to Vanessa, sacrificing herself for the greater good. However, the Oracle selected Sam, and he started growing massive horns and big pointy ears, becoming a full-fledged demon. But Vanessa wasn’t going to be alone for the impending battle – her great-great-grandmother Lillian, who has been in a state of limbo for over a century, was suddenly awakened, and the two braced for battle.

Meanwhile, at the Denver Blak Tek compound, Doc discovered that there was something special about her blood (though we were not told what this is). She had also developed some new poisoned bullets that were supposed to be able to kill the vampires. Julius and the others were about to test this theory, as the compound came under attack by Scab and the Daywalkers, which was convenient in a way, as Julius was anxious to take down Scab and avenge Frankie.

The fourth season picks up immediately where we left off as the fighting begins on both fronts. Who will survive these battles, and what lies ahead for these folks? Even if Vanessa manages to survive, Axel blames her for Scarlett’s death and will likely be out for revenge. I wonder what is so special about Doc’s blood – I mean, Julius and Vanessa both have the ability to heal themselves, and Vanessa’s blood can even turn vampires human!

It should be another exciting season, and since the series has a new showrunner this year, there may be a bit of a reboot coming, with the introduction of some new characters. In tonight’s premiere, we meet Violet (Keeya King), and later this season we’ll be introduced to several new characters, including Dracula (Tricia Helfer, BSG), Jax (Nicole Muñoz, Defiance), and an unknown character played by The 100‘s Richard Harmon.

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, I got a chance to talk about the series with the new showrunner, some of the producers, and some of the new and returning cast. You can watch my interview videos from the press room at NoReruns.net.

On tonight’s premiere, “Dark Destiny,” with the amulet in hand, Vanessa and Lily escape from Elder Sam and return to the real world.

Don’t miss the premiere tonight on Syfy at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Politician, American Housewife, and Fresh Off the Boat.

After almost 4 years off the air, I was a bit surprised to see Black Jesus in my queue last week with its season three premiere. As a fan of the original The Boondocks comic and cartoon, I have always given this show a chance, so I tuned right on in. The episode opened with a hilarious sequence of Jesus running from the cops, using his divine powers to ride his bike on water at one point. To enable Lloyd to see and speak well enough to lie to the cops for him, Jesus cured the neighborhood drunk of his alcoholism. Once they caught him, Jesus charmed his way out of any charges and was soon catching up with his homie, Boonie.

Boonie had moved to a “New” Compton Gardens apartment complex, but he was still stuck under the thumb of his drug kingpin of a mom, Ms. Tudi. His apartment had been converted to a storage space for cheap wares that Tudi was hawking at flea markets and on Ebay. There were a series of hilarious moments when Boonie got shot and Jesus healed him. It happened so often that it was ridiculous but also hilarious. This Jesus is always in touch with his Compton roots and also a magnanimous healer and champion of faith in the Lord. This is a great show, and we are so lucky to have it back!

On tonight’s episode, “Vatican Guys,” after discovering the leaked video of Jesus performing a miracle, the Vatican sends two secret agents from Italy to Compton to kidnap “the Black Jesus” and determine if the oversized black guy is really the son of God.

Check out this comedic great tonight on Cartoon Network/Adult Swim at 12AM/11PMc.

I also watched the newest episode of Titans.

Blue Bloods returns tonight for its 10th season, and I have missed my weekly dose of the Regan family. It was great to see Jamie and Eddie finally get married, but I’m sure this season will bring all sorts of learning curves for the love birds. Speaking of love, it would be nice to see Danny go on a date and start to have a little more relaxation in his life. It may seem a bit soon to some, but Danny has been so closed off since his wife passed away that I think he needs someone to come and open him up. I’m looking forward to seeing how the family changes overall this season and watch as the Regans face any problem that comes their way with their usual fierceness.

On tonight’s episode, “The Real Deal,” Danny and Baez grapple with a year-old homicide investigation brought to their attention by Maggie, the medium who previously helped them solve a case. Also, Frank looks for a way to help his ex-partner, Lenny Ross, when his daughter is arrested; Jamie and Eddie go apartment hunting; and Erin faces off against a cold-blooded defense attorney from her past.

To see if Danny and Baez can close the cold case, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum P.I.
