What To Watch – Friday, January 12, 2018

We love Friday TV because we love MacGyver and Marvel’s Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D. but otherwise, we struggle to fill the night.  So, we are going to give Taken a chance and see what happens.  Otherwise, not much to look at here, friends.

The Magicians returned tonight to start us on a new epic quest which will take a good season to play out.  We were re-acquainted with all of our favorite Magicians and over the course of this single hour, heard more memorable lines than you’re likely to hear on any other show over the course of a whole season.  The writing and delivery on The Magicians is so spot on, its equal parts, nerdy, fantastical, whimsical, badass-ical, sassy and sincere. Its like being lulled by a train smoothly rolling on its tracks with a rhythmic clackety clack that just sweeps you along for the ride. Anyway, more thoughts on this amazing episode and the season outlook at the end of the post.  Grab some bacon, sit back and enjoy.

Warning: This is going to be a long post, so drink lots of water (you must be diligent about hydration) and buckle up.  Before we meet the Great Cock of the Darkling Woods and embark on an Epic Quest with our friends, let’s talk about what happened before … Continue reading “TV Recaps: The Magicians – I’m Grace Park”

What To Watch – Thursday, January 11, 2018

Not a great night for TV, friends.  We’re going with The 23rd Annual Critics Choice Awards, mainly because the remarkable Gal Gadot is being given an award from her Wonder Woman director, Patty Jenkins.  The only other thing that kind of interests us tonight, Inside The Actors Studio, wherein James Lipton will pepper Ted Danson with questions in his slightly hushed, trademark style. I am curious what Ted’s favorite curse word is.

First Look: The Brave – Grounded (Ep 111)

Today, NBC posted pictures for next week’s The Brave episode, “Grounded.”

This is the episode description given: “With Patricia (Anne Heche) out of commission, Noah (Tate Ellington) is at the helm of the D.I.A. when FARC revolutionaries take control of a flight in Colombia. When negotiations mean life or death for the passengers on board, Hannah (Sofia Pernas) must make her return to the field. Also starring Mike Vogel (Adam Dalton), Demetrius Grosse (Ezekiel “Preach” Carter), Noah Mills (Joseph “McG” McGuire), and Hadi Tabbal (Amir Al-Raisani). Guest Starring Brett Tucker (Dr. Xander Martin), Jonathan Medina (Lalo Mahecha), Idara Victor (Elena Bernal), Vannessa Vasquez (Mari Calera) and Jos Viramontes (Edgar Triana).”

From the pictures below, it seems like Jaz is undergoing some kind of rehabilitation and Campbell, from the description, isn’t quite cleared from outing Jaz’s identity in the last episode. Like we said in our recap of “Desperate Measures,” there will be consequences and ramifications! Continue reading “First Look: The Brave – Grounded (Ep 111)”
