I’m so freaking excited about this premiere – one of the shows I’ve been most excited about this new season. Based on the Jason Bourne books by Robert Ludlum and the movie franchise, Treadstone is an action-packed thriller set amidst the CIA black ops program Operation Treadstone. For those who’ve seen the movies, Treadstone is the program that turned Jason Bourne into…well, Jason Bourne. The show explores the origin story and present-day actions of the infamous covert program that uses behavior modification protocol to turn recruits into nearly superhuman assassins. It follows sleeper agents across the globe as they’re mysteriously “awakened” to resume their deadly missions.

The show stars Brian J. Smith (Sense8, Stargate Universe), Michael Gaston (Blind Justice, The Leftovers, Strange Angel, Unforgettable), Michelle Forbes (Wonderland, Snitch, The Killing, Berlin Station), Omar Metwally (Line of Sight, Virtuality), Patrick Fugit (Outcast, Reckless), Tracy Ifeachor (Quantico, The Originals, Crossbones), Tess Haubrich (Pine Gap), Emilia Schule (Berlin Station), Gabrielle Scharnitzky, Hyo Joo Han, Jeremy Irvine, & Shruti Haasan. Treadstone was developed by and executive produced by Tim Kring (Heroes, Touch, Crossing Jordan).

The show should be completely full of action and intrigue, I’m hoping like a 1-hour movie each week. Woohoo! So can’t wait for this one!

On tonight’s episode, “The Cicada Protocol,” superhuman assassins created during a covert operation are reactivated to resume their deadly missions.

Don’t miss the exciting premiere tonight on USA Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Conners, NCIS, Chopped, FBI, & NCIS: New Orleans.

USA Network’s stellar new Tuesday night lineup also includes the second season premiere of The Purge. This season we follow Marcus Moore (Derek Luke, Rogue) and his wife Michelle (Rochelle Aytes, Hawaii Five-0), who find themselves targeted in a home invasion during Purge Night. Meanwhile, Ryan Grant (Max Martini, The Order) and his crew have spent the last year planning a massive bank heist, but things may not go as smoothly as they had hoped. Across town, clean cut frat boy Ben (Joel Allen, Never Goin’ Back) and his best friend (Matt Shively, The Real O’Neals) are out on a scavenger hunt, but the night is about to change one of them dramatically. And finally, loyal/longtime NFFA surveillance center employee Esme Carmona (Paola Nuñez, The Son) is looking for rule infractions on Purge Night when she witnesses something suspicious involving an old friend.

While the Purge films and the first season of the TV series have all concentrated on the moments leading up to Purge Night and the 12 hours of carnage that follows, this season the series is taking a different approach. The premiere covers the final two hours of Purge Night, introducing us to four seemingly disparate stories. But over the course of the season, we will learn how of these characters are interconnected as we follow their lives during the aftermath and see what happens those other 364 days of the year in-between Purge Nights.

It looks like we are in for another exciting season, with lots of suspense and some thrilling mystery and intrigue as the series gives a look at a very different aspect of the Purge phenomenon. How do the victims make sense of what just happened or why they or a loved one was targeted? How do they deal with the possibly horrific things they just did in order to survive? Who cleans up after all of mayhem, and how does the NFFA ensure that those who didn’t follow the (limited) rules during Purge Night pay for their crimes?

On tonight’s premiere, “This Is Not a Test,” four interconnected characters navigate the aftermath of the Purge over the ensuing year.

Meet the new characters of the Purge tonight on USA Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Treadstone, Bless This Mess, mixed-ish, black-ish, Emergence, This Is Us, The Resident, The Flash, and Arrow.

New Amsterdam has been keeping us on an emotional roller coaster with Max since the beginning of this season. He is mourning the loss of his wife but in his own strange way – one of which is throwing himself into making the hospital the place he wants it to be. This task has taken on the form of a staff census to see what everyone is feeling and also in trying to get outpatient programs set up for their most vulnerable patients. He is an inspiring man, but if Max doesn’t take a moment and truly grieve soon, I am worried he is going to have a complete mental breakdown. Hopefully Max will allow Sharpe to be there for him soon, because he really needs the love and support.

On tonight’s episode, “The Denominator,” when Iggy and Kapoor discover a patient might be suffering from lead poisoning, they are forced to take on the city. Meanwhile, Max’s unsolicited attempts to help a patient backfires.

To see if Iggy and Kapoor can get to the bottom of this possible lead poisoning, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Bless This Mess, NCIS, NCIS: New Orleans, Emergence, The Voice, mixed-ish, FBI, Arrow, The Flash, and The Resident.
