It is good to be back! What a strange and messy world we’ve been living in since March, but TV is starting to return, and that means we will be popping in when we can to let you know what we are watching and what you should check out. Hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.

Tonight is the series premiere of Big Sky on ABC, and I am excited for many reasons. First, I have loved watching Ryan Phillippe ever since he starred in the movie Playing by Heart back in 1998. (Yes, I know I’m old.) He was such a sweetheart in that movie, and his eyes won me over. Secondly, a suspense-filled thriller is always welcome on my television viewing list, especially when it seems like it will be an edge-of-your-seat kind of ride.

The show follows Cody Hoyt, a private detective who gets drawn into a mysterious case of missing women after they start to investigate the disappearance of two women, only to discover that there are many more women who have disappeared and nothing is as it seems. Beside Ryan Phillippe, it also stars John Carol Lynch (Body of Proof, Close to Home, K-Ville), Katheryn Winnick (Vikings, Bones), Kylie Bunbury (Pitch, Brave New World), Jade Pettyjohn (Little Fires Everywhere), Brian Geraghty (Chicago PD, Briarpatch, The Fugitive), Natalie Alyn Lind (The Gifted), Dedee Pfeiffer (For Your Love), Jesse James Keitel, & Valerie Mahaffey.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” while on a road trip to visit her boyfriend in Montana, Danielle Sullivan and her sister Grace are kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote part of the highway, setting off a chain of events that leads private detectives Cody Hoyt and Cassie Dewell to team up with Cody’s estranged wife and ex-cop, Jenny Hoyt, to search for the sisters. But when the investigators discover these are not the only girls who have disappeared in the area, it’s clear that they’ve stumbled onto something much bigger than them all.

To see if this new series draws you in to the mystery as much as it has me, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching FBI, FBI: Most Wanted, NCIS, The Voice, NEXT, This Is Us, Chopped, and Transplant.

I’m so excited because tonight’s the premiere of both The Goldbergs and The Conners. (There’s also the premiere of black-ish to complete ABC’s premiere night, but I’m not watching it.)

To start off, we get a double episode of The Goldbergs, and they’re doing it in style, taking on the classic 1980s movie Airplane with an episode titled…well…”Airplane!” Beverly surprises the family with an end-of-summer vacation to Miami with the flight down resembling the classic film, and Geoff accidentally spills to Erica the real reason for the trip. Then in “The Prettiest Boy in School,” Adam, now a senior, returns to William Penn Academy as he wrestles with the fact that he is a cool kid and no longer a nerd while his original friend group isn’t as lucky. Meanwhile, Beverly attempts to have a more grown-up relationship with Erica and Barry before they head back to college.

It’s hard to imagine Adam as A) a senior and B) a cool kid. LOL So I can’t wait to see that!

Then on The Conners’ premiere episode, “Keep on Truckin’ Six Feet Apart,” the Conners are back and dealing with the pandemic, and life’s financial troubles loom over the family. Dan is still trying to catch up on back-mortgage payments and avoid a potential eviction, while the Lunch Box is closed for everything but takeout and delivery. Becky and Darlene are both forced to search for additional income at the newly reopened Wellman Plastics plant. Danny Trejo, Katey Segal, & Rene Rosado guest star.

Not all shows are going to include real-life problems like the pandemic into them, but we’ve seen how The Conners can do that, so this will be interesting! Especially given some of the things I’ve read about this season! 😉

Don’t miss ABC’s comedy premieres tonight starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Devils, The Amazing Race, Coroner, & Guy’s Grocery Games.

Welcome back to our Remote posts! It’s been a very long almost 5 months with only a handful of posts in that time! Darn Rona, anyway! For now, it’s going to be hit or miss, depending on when we feel like posting, and I’m starting it off with tonight’s series premiere of Supermarket Sweep.

When I first heard ABC was doing a reboot of this fun gameshow, I couldn’t have been more excited. I didn’t watch the original, even on reruns, but I did watch the show in the 90s and early 2000s, and I loved it. The show follows three teams of two, still in the iconic colorful sweatshirts, as they compete against one another using their grocery shopping skills and knowledge of merchandise. They’re competing for the chance to become the winning duo to play in the “Super Sweep,” a race against the clock to find five products in order to win $100,000. This time around, comedienne/actress Leslie Jones is host, and she should bring fantastic energy to the show, especially since I read she’s been a longtime fan too.

On tonight’s premiere, “Give Me the Roses, Richard!” Leslie is joined by teams from Canada/Washington, North Carolina, Missouri/Arkansas, Texas/Louisiana, California, and California/Philippines.

Find out who takes home the prize tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Worst Cooks in America, Card Sharks, & Halloween Freakshow Cakes.

We’re kind of lucky to have any Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. at all this year. It was supposed to get axed after season 6, but when Inhumans flopped (hard), this show was extended. Comic book TV content is still highly in demand, and Fox also cancelled The Gifted, so something had to be salvaged. To be brutally honest, this season could be written off as mashup of Legends of Tomorrow & 12 Monkeys, but we’ve grown to love these characters so much, we’ll take them packaged however, wherever, whenever. So I’m gonna be grateful that we are spiraling through time with the core S.H.I.E.L.D. crew led by Mac, sans Fitz but with a robot Coulson & an afflicted Mae. Why? Because it has been phenomenal so far, as we’ve spent 2 episodes in the 1930s and now 2 in the 1950s.

Last week started with a unique show logo and robot Coulson as a film noir narrator in an appropriately black & white episode. Agent Surry from the short-lived yet classic Agent Carter crossed paths with the time-displaced team already. Robo-Coulson realized as he was in Sousa’s custody that that day was the one that Sousa was meant to die, after delivering a vital piece of technology to Howard Stark. Initially he sought to preserve history and steered Sousa towards his (later famous and revered) doom, but a number of problems cropped up on the way. For one thing, in retrieval of the item, Deek got kidnapped by Hydra. Yo-yo got away with the item, but instead of taking it to Coulson, she was preoccupied with saving Deek. To comedic effect, Enoch was again left as a bartender in the speakeasy where we last saw him in the 1930s. This time his only use was in patching the comms of the crew in a tech-starved era. In the end they faked Sousa’s death and took him forward with them on their next time hop after smoothing out history and foiling the Chronicons attempts to sabotage the timestream.

On tonight’s episode, “A Trout in the Milk,” after a bumpy landing in the disco decade, the team — Daniel Sousa in tow — reunites with more than one familiar face at the S.H.I.E.L.D. hangout and discovers exactly how to dismantle the Chronicoms’ latest plan. But when they get too close for comfort, the Zephyr unexpectedly leaps forward again, this time to a date pivotal to not only the future of S.H.I.E.L.D. but to the future of Director Mack as well.

Find out why the date is pivotal to the team tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

After almost a year (!!!), we’re FINALLY getting the final season premiere of Blindspot tonight. In case you don’t remember, on the 2-part season finale, the team was racing against the clock to stop Madeline Burke’s Helios attack. When they finally got a lead into two of her associates and tracked one down, they found him with Keaton. Turned out the guy was former CIA. Nash, Keaton’s boss, showed up. They argued and agreed to go to a neutral location and question him together, but on the drive there, rockets blew up the SUV and killed him. In order to figure out who the mole inside the CIA or FBI was, the FBI brought in Madeline from prison, but she fed them nothing but whining about being innocent and this being an attack on her from the FBI, just like they had a problem with her father.

They captured Dominic on security cams at the Belmore science lab, getting handed a package. That’s when we found out Nash was the mole in the CIA and he warned Dominic to get away from Belmore before the team could get there. They did find the woman who gave Dominic the package. They were shocked when they found out it was a computer virus, not a biological agent. Not long after that, they figured out his target: NYIOC, which controls the power grid to the entire East Coast. Unfortunately, they couldn’t get to Dominic in time to stop him from uploading the virus. Patterson and Zapata stayed in the lab to try to stop the virus, while Jane & Weller went after Dominic. During his escape, Jane and Weller cornered him in the hallway, and he basically sacrificed himself for the cause. And unfortunately, Kathy was still working with him (remember, she thought they were in love…), so she was able to stop Patterson from halting the virus…and the entire power grid went down.
