I’ve been looking forward to the series premiere of Fire Country since I first heard about it. This is inspired by series star Max Thieriot’s experiences growing up in Northern California fire country. Max plays Clay on SEAL Team, and we’ve been assured that Clay isn’t going anywhere, so apparently Max is able to do double duty, or rather triple, since he’s the creator and an executive producer of this new series as well as starring.

He plays Bode Donovan, a young convict seeking redemption and a shortened prison sentence by joining an unconventional prison release firefighting program in Northern California, where he and other inmates are partnered with elite firefighters to extinguish massive, unpredictable wildfires across the region. It’s a high-risk, high-reward assignment, and the heat is turned up when Bode is assigned to the program in his rural hometown, where he was once a golden all-American son until his troubles began. Five years ago, Bode burned down everything in his life, leaving town with a big secret. Now he’s back, with the rap sheet of a criminal and the audacity to believe in a chance for redemption with Cal Fire.

I’m super excited about the premise, and I’m also excited about the cast. Billy Burke (Revolution, Zoo, and The Twilight Saga movies), Diane Farr (Numb3rs, Rescue Me), & Kevin Alejandro (Lucifer, Shark, The Returned, Sleeper Cell, Southland, True Blood), along with Jordan Calloway, Jules Latimer, & Stephanie Arcila.

Don’t miss tonight’s premiere on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Great British Baking Show, S.W.A.T., & Blue Bloods.

I’m really enjoying the new season of NCIS: Hawai’i. Granted, it’s only been one episode aside from the premiere, but last week’s ep was pretty good. The team had to learn more about illegal street racing when a Marine staff sergeant’s body was found in a car being crushed in a junkyard. The killer turned out to be what felt like (to me, at least) the least likely suspect. On a personal note, Tennant knew her son was hiding something, and it turned out he was—a new girlfriend. It was the first time he hadn’t come to her with that kind of news, and she realized she would just have to be patient. Also, Whistler was ready to introduce Lucy to her coworkers, but when her boss assumed that Whistler’s partner was a male, she worried how they’d take the news that he was a she. Turned out she didn’t need to worry. Lucy and their relationship were welcomed with open arms at the company picnic.

On tonight’s episode, “Stolen Valor,” Tennant and the NCIS team suspect foul play when they investigate a fatal car crash involving a Navy officer who turns out to be an imposter. Also, Whistler finds herself in danger when she goes undercover to learn the truth behind the accident.

To see if Whistler comes out unscathed, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Dancing with the Stars, Bob Hearts Abishola, Halloween Baking Championship, NCIS, Halloween Cookie Challenge, & Quantum Leap.

There are several things on tonight that I wanted to recommend, but I decided to stay true to my cop show-loving heart, so my pick tonight is the series premiere of East New York. Not only is it a cop show, but the cast has two members who I love in everything I’ve watched them in: Jimmy Smits and Richard Kind.

Amanda Warren stars as Deputy Inspector Regina Haywood, the newly promoted boss of the 74th Precinct in East New York — a working-class neighborhood on the edge of Brooklyn in the midst of social upheaval and the early seeds of gentrification. With family ties to the area, Haywood is determined to deploy creative methods to protect her beloved community with the help of her officers and detectives. But first, she has the daunting task of getting them on board, as some are skeptical of her promotion, and others resist the changes she is desperate to make. Her team includes her mentor, shrewd veteran two-star Chief John Suarez (Smits); Marvin Sandeford (Ruben Santiago Hudson), a highly respected training officer and expert on the neighborhood; Tommy Killian (Kevin Rankin), a detective with some old-school approaches to policing; Capt. Stan Yenko (Kind), Haywood’s gregarious and efficient right hand; Crystal Morales (Elizabeth Rodriguez), an intuitive detective who can’t be intimidated; Andre Bentley (Lavel Schley), a trainee from an upper middle-class background; and ambitious patrol officer Brandy Quinlan (Olivia Luccardi), the sole volunteer to live in a local housing project as part of Haywood’s plan to bridge the gap between police and community. Regina Haywood has a vision: she and the squad of the 74th Precinct will not only serve their community — they’ll also become part of it.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Amanda Warren is promoted to be boss of the 74th precinct in East New York, where she must get her crew on board — but some are skeptical of her promotion.

Check out the latest cop drama tonight on CBS at a special time of 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire, SEAL Team, Celebrity Jeopardy!, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, Family Law, Halloween Wars, Outrageous Pumpkins, & The Rookie.

The Equalizer Season 2 DVD Review

Season 2 of The Equalizer was just released September 20, to the delight of fans. In season 2, Robyn McCall is reeling from the fallout of Delilah’s discovery that her mother is “The Equalizer.” While McCall struggles to reconnect with Delilah, she is dismayed to learn that her vigilante profile is growing exponentially online.

Just as McCall considers ending her work at The Equalizer due to the social chatter and the district attorney’s commitment to bringing her to justice, she takes on an unexpected client: Detective Marcus Dante. Dante approaches McCall to help him find a highly tactical and untraceable group of bank robbers who killed and injured multiple police officers in a recent bank heist. Together, they attempt to run down the criminals and are shocked when their investigation leads them to the highest levels of US intelligence and American politics.

This 4-disc collection includes all 18 episodes, along with exclusive deleted scenes and (my favorite) gag reel.

Be sure to get the season 4 DVD now so you can rewatch your favorite episodes! The Equalizer Season 2 DVD

There is SO MUCH ON tonight, but since I want to really try to limit how many I’ll pick, my top pick tonight is the series premiere of So Help Me Todd. Marcia Gay Harden and Skylar Astin star as razor-sharp, meticulous attorney Margaret Wright and Todd, her talented but aimless son whom she hires as her law firm’s in-house investigator. As the black sheep of the Wright family, Todd is a laidback, quick-thinking, former private detective who fell on hard times after his flexible interpretation of the law got his license revoked. Margaret’s penchant for excellence and strict adherence to the law is at complete odds with Todd’s scrappy methods of finding his way through sticky situations. When Todd inadvertently teams with his mother on a case, she’s surprised to find herself duly impressed by – and proud of – his crafty ability to sleuth out information with his charm and his wide-ranging tech savvy. At last, Margaret sees a way to put her son on a “suitable” path to living an adult, financially solvent life she approves of, and she asks him to join her firm. Todd agrees, since it means getting his license back and once again doing the job he excels at and loves. Mother and son working together is a big first step toward mending their fragile, dysfunctional relationship, and they may even come away with a better understanding of each other. But whether Todd and Margaret will be able to accept each other for who they are is another case entirely. It also stars Inga Schlingmann, Madeline Wise, Rosa Arredondo, & Tristen J. Winger.

Marcia Gay Harden and Skylar Astin are both fantastic and fun to watch, and the previews definitely make it seem like this is going to be both funny and heartwarming, so I’ve been so looking forward to seeing it since it was first announced. I’m excited to check it out tonight.

On tonight’s pilot episode, m eticulous attorney Margaret Wright hires her scruffy son as her law firm’s in-house investigator.

Catch the series premiere tonight on CBS at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, Hell’s Kitchen, Law & Order, Ghosts (YES!), Law & Order: SVU, CSI: Vegas (YES!), & Law & Order: OC.
