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.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/23/19

Welcome back, fall TV! We’ve sure missed you around here! Because there’s so much on this week, we have multiple picks almost every night. Mostly we’ll feature some new shows, but some returning faves may or may not make the list as well. So check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice #1

My first pick tonight is the new drama on CBS, All Rise, although I’d coin it almost a dramedy, rather than a straight drama. I’ve seen the first couple of episodes, and there’s a lot to laugh about in addition to the courtroom drama action. The show stars Simone Missick (Misty Knight on Marvel’s Luke Cage & Marvel’s The Defenders) as Lola Carmichael, former deputy district attorney turned newly appointed judge. Despite what her new judicial assistant Sherri (Ruthie Ann Miles, probably most famous for her roles on Broadway, but she was also in a few episodes of The Americans as well) advises her, Lola is determined to push the boundaries and challenge the expectations of what a judge can be. Unlike the older, stuffier judges who push cases through in rapid fire, Lola is determined to give each case her all, no matter how backed up her case files are. It’s that caring concern mixed with the humor she brings that makes her fun to watch.

Also starring are Wilson Bethel (Hart of Dixie) as Mark Callan, a deputy district attorney who has been best friends with Lola since college; Marg Helgenberger (CSI) as Supervisory Judge Lisa Benner, an influential, powerful woman tasked with overseeing Lola’s transition into her new job; Jessica Camacho (Taken, The Flash, Sleepy Hollow) as Emily Lopez, a young, empathetic public defender; J. Alex Brinson (Travelers) as Luke Watkins, a court bailiff by day, law student by night who takes a liking to Emily; and Lindsay Mendez (best known for her roles on Broadway) as Sara Castillo, a court reporter and reliable source of intel and advice.

I really loved this pilot. It’s funny, but it’s got heart too, and I can’t wait to see more.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” newly appointed Judge Lola Carmichael works to get justice for people amidst a flawed legal process.

Meet Lola, Mark, and the others tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

Tonight, NBC kicks off the new series The Enemy Within. CIA Director of Operations Erica Shepherd (Jennifer Carpenter, Dexter) was a brilliant operative who seemed to be at the top of her career when she was arrested for espionage and treason and sentenced to life in prison. Three years later, a coordinated terror attack occurs on U.S. soil, killing 14 government agents. It appears that the man responsible for the attack is the same person Erica had been working for, and he may have a mole in FBI helping him out. The FBI director thinks that to catch a spy they can use a spy and wants to enlist Shepherd, who was one of the government’s best code-breakers before she turned on them. However, FBI Agent Will Keaton (Morris Chestnut, Goliath, Rosewood) is very much against this plan since it was Shepherd’s actions that led to the death of his fiancee. Now the two are forced to work together to stop the terrorists before they can strike again.

The cast also includes Raza Jaffrey (Homeland, Lost in Space), Kelli Garner (The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe, Pan Am), Cassandra Freeman (Luke Cage), and Noah Mills (The Brave).

From the pilot, it seems like this show will be The Blacklist (con recruited to help the FBI) meets 24/Homeland (terrorism and moles). It doesn’t appear that the series will take on a case-of-the-week but rather be more character-based and explore a longer story arc, with twists and turns, slowly revealing details of why and how Shepherd was turned, as the FBI works to stop the terrorists and uncover the mole within their department.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” former CIA Agent Erica Shepherd, one of the most notorious traitors in recent American history, is brought out of a federal Supermax prison by FBI agent Will Keaton to help track down the criminal who is behind a coordinated attack on three cities.

See how Keaton gets Shepherd out of prison tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Good Doctor, The Passage, and The Other Two.

There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding The Voice since last week’s eliminations, and I am very torn. I love Adam Levine, but what he did during eliminations last week was horrible. When he was supposed to be advocating for DeAndre, he used the time to plead for America to save Reagan because she was sick and didn’t get a chance to perform for herself. This should never have happened, because if a contestant can’t perform, they should be eliminated no matter how much you love them. We shall see going forward how many viewers are lost over this situation, because there is a lot of anger over this.

On tonight’s episode, “Semi-Finals,” the top 8 artists perform live in front of coaches Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton for America’s vote. Plus, the artists team up for competitive mashup duets.

To find out what the judges have to say about this week’s performances, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Neighborhood, Magnum PI, Arrow, and Bull.

Last week, the third season of UnREAL premiered on Lifetime. As the season opened, Rachel had just finished her six-month self-imposed exile following the deadly events of the previous season. She reluctantly agreed to return to “Everlasting,” but she warned Quinn that she had made a vow to no longer lie. Just as she arrived on set, Rachel was ready to bolt again when she saw that ex Jeremy — who committed double murder for the show last season — had also returned, but Quinn and Chet told her they needed to keep him close so that they could be sure he wasn’t going to talk to the police. For its new season, Everlasting has its first ever female suitress, Silicon Valley mogul Serena, and it looked like she wasn’t going to be as easy to control as past suitors. However, it wasn’t long before the producers were off to their usual despicable, manipulative activities, which were jaw-dropping for the show’s new on-set psychiatrist, who couldn’t believe what he was witnessing.

I had forgotten how much I missed this show until I watched the season premiere. I found myself instantly sucked back into this crazy world with these insane, manipulative people. I can’t wait to see how the rest of the season plays out!

On tonight’s episode, “Shield,” after a poker game with the contestants that leaves Serena the sore winner, Chet teaches her how to be the woman that all men want to marry. Quinn makes a connection with one of the contestants after meeting Chet’s new swimsuit model girlfriend.

Find out what Chet teaches Serena tonight on Lifetime at 10:02/9:02c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Good Girls, The Resident, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, iZombie, Final Space, and The Alienist.
