It’s here, it’s here! School has officially begun for my family. What that means for me is my schedule may get flipped and stay flipped for a while. haha During the school year, I tend to be awake at night, and then go to sleep after my kid leaves for school, waking up just before he gets home late in the afternoon (like at 4:15…). Fun stuff! Why I sleep better during the day, I couldn’t tell you. I just know I usually do! Anyway, that leaves me a lot of time at night to work, write, beta—and catch up on great TV, which is important, since we’re coming up on the new Fall season! Eek! But for tonight, there’s some great things on, so check out what we think you should be watching!
My pick tonight is the season finale of Memphis Beat. Last week’s episode was so great. I loved seeing Dwight and Whitehead away from the precinct. The case they ended up working on reminded me of Clue, where the murderer was someone IN THE HOUSE! lol I dunno, I just really enjoyed it. But honestly, the best part of the episode was seeing Lt. Rice, Sutton, and Greenback working together to figure out who the guy was in the drunk tank and how he got there, since he seemed a little… out of it and unable to remember anything. It was heartbreaking when he remembered little snatches of information, and so heartwarming at the end when his sister—who they finally figured out who she was and somehow were able to get in touch with her—came to pick him up. It turned out that he was a bi-polar schizophrenic and had been missing from wherever he was living for five days. The other great part about last week was the inclusion of Paula Ann, Dwight’s mother. She ended up braving the storm to bring Dwight and his co-workers some sandwiches and stayed when the storm was too bad to go back out into. She fixed the generator on her own, got Joe/Ronnie the “prisoner” to remember the first thing, and just as she always does when she’s on screen, made me laugh, shake my head, and wish my mom were more like she is.
Tonight is the season finale and there’s no word yet on renewal. I have my fingers crossed. It would be a crying shame if this show got canceled! It’s not perfect (then again, what on TV nowadays is?!), but I adore it.
On tonight’s episode, when a girl from one of two feuding families is found shot, Dwight must do everything he can to make sure no more blood is shed. Back at the station, Dwight has trouble separating his love life from his job, when Davey and Greenback discover he has a new girlfriend and make it their personal mission to include her in an upcoming birthday party. Amy Madigan (Fringe, Grey’s Anatomy, Carnivale) & Lance Henriksen guest star.
