I hope everyone had a great weekend—and if applicable, I hope you spent time with the special dad in your life. Our Father’s Day was pretty good. I got to catch up on some much-needed sleep while Scott & Josh went to the movies to see Star Trek, and then we made ribs for dinner & played cards while they were cooking. Then after dinner, all of us played Uno for a few minutes and spent some time together as a family. So it was good. But the weekend’s over, which means work…but also some great new TV. So check out what we’re recommending tonight!
I have to admit, until last week’s season premiere, I hadn’t seen a single episode of Major Crimes. I loved The Closer, but I hated the story line with Brenda at the end—against the one “big bad” and then the story about going after her in court…so I quit watching before the show ended. I wasn’t a big fan of Captain Raydor whenever she showed up. But…I’m missing shows like that right now, where there’s more drama & cop stuff than humor (even though I love those shows, like Castle, Bones, & Rizzoli & Isles when it starts up again), so I decided to try it out, figuring the season premiere was a good place to start. I had kind of been keeping up with the show because of the recaps/reviews Lindsay writes on here, so I wasn’t completely lost. I knew about Rusty and about him living with Captain Raydor. So I had some ideas going in. But I was more than pleasantly surprised when it really felt a lot like The Closer always did. The team was strong, there was a bit of humor, and the story was strong. So I can’t wait to continue watching in the hopes that I continue to enjoy.
On tonight’s episode, “False Pretenses,” a complex murder-suicide case has the department reeling. Meanwhile, when Rusty receives a mysterious and threatening letter, Emma demands that he be relocated. Torn between her desire to protect Rusty and professional duty to the case, Raydor is forced to seriously consider Emma’s request.
See if Raydor gives in or fights to keep him with her tonight on TNT at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Defiance, The Glades, Longmire, Warehouse 13, Diners, Drive-in & Dives, & King & Maxwell.
