I suggest you tape shows tonight and go watch A Wrinkle of Time in the theaters but what to tape? We’ve got you covered.  New MacGyver, Dynasty and MasterChef Junior are all fun choices in the 8pm hour though Mac is our Man! At 9pm, we’re showing Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. the 100th episode love but also, we’re adding in Live PD which social media tells us is fantastic. Its also THEIR 100th episode so, weird!  At 10pm, ELeague crowns a champion!!

What To Watch – Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Wednesdays don’t get any better than magic up front and history in the back. All new The Librarians leads into new The Magicians.  For a different flavor, there is now Vikings followed by new Knightfall on History Channel.  Coming in from left field, the series premiere of Waco, on CMT.

Best New Shows of the 2017-18 Season

The end of the year is a great time to take stock of where we are.  Today, I’m letting you know my top new shows of the Fall television season. These shows are weekly installment shows (distinguished from “binge” shows where an entire season is made available at once a la Netflix or Hulu). Why differentiate?  Because, at least for me anyway, I watch “binge” shows very differently from weeklies and the characteristics and criteria for what makes them great isn’t necessarily the same in the two categories.

Anyhoo, read on and let me know what you think.  There are a couple of “obvious” choices here that you’ll see on other critics lists.  There are several that I am sure you will not.  But, hey, I’m me and this is my world so step inside my thinking a bit.  Leave your thoughts and choices in the comments.  I love discussing TV and why you think something is great … or not.

Without further ado, the Best New Show of the Fall Season is …

What To Watch – Wednesday, December 13, 2017

I was all prepared to write a gloomy post about how reruns suck and life is meaningless BUT The Librarians season 4 premieres tonight so rejoice!! I think I am only 1 of like 4 people that watches this show but I have been a fan since day 1. Seriously, get ready to hear about The Librarians a lot over the next 2 months.  I can’t even.  Basically, Noah Wyle plays Flynn Carsen, the Librarian. The Librarian is an ancient post handed down generation to generation, charged with protecting the world’s most valuable artifacts, magical and otherwise.  He’s assisted by his Guardian, Eve Baird (Rebecca Romijn), a badass warrior chick who is charged with keeping Flynn alive; a super computer named Jenkins (in the form of John Larroquette); and 3 helper Librarians, each with a unique genius skill set.  Its awesome and funny and fun. Watch it!

So much TV, so little time!

What To Watch – Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Goddamn you Matt Lauer for taking the thunder away from the season premiere of Vikings tonight. Now I need to put your goofy face on the cover of my post instead of Lagertha in her Royal Viking Finery! You suck, Lauer! Also, Mr. Robot is on and the tree gets lit in Rockefeller Center, sans a certain alleged sexual predator.
