This week, we take a bit of a breather after a series of emotional and impactful episodes that have really moved the plot along. Not that tonight doesn’t have some emotional resonance, but we’re not terribly closer to solving the problem of the Fairy Realm Key after tonight’s episode. You’ll notice this episode is very self-contained in a few familiar spots – its because tonight’s ep is a classic “Bottle Episode”; a trick of producers to save cash on new sets and props and dressing which is necessary in order to pay for larger expenditures during the rest of the season (looking at you music licensing rights for “All About Josh“). The upside of these types of episodes is that you tend to get great dialogue and character beats – very much like good stage plays because its basically characters on screen not moving around much. Tonight doesn’t disappoint.
Let’s jump right in to Julia and Josh’s excellent adventure to another timeline, Timeline twenty-Three. Our deep Dive Recap and review (spoilers ahead!!) … after the jump!
Shadowhunters leads our Top Picks for What To To Watch Tonight with Black Lightning and Rise rounding out the Top Three. However, a sitcom making its return to television will be what everyone is talking about. The Roseanne reboot finally premieres tonight with back to back episodes and all eyes will surely be on the Connor Clan. Will you be watching?
Season finales, series premieres, all new episode of your favorite shows — tonight has it all!!
Our Top Pick To Watch is the season finale of The Alienist (yes, we are so very far behind on recaps, sorry!). Also bowing out is the freshman drama, The Good Doctor. Making its series premiere tonight is AMC’s newest thriller drama, The Terror (2 hour series premiere) which we’ll be watching once Alienist ends. Elsewhere, we’re watching Good Girls and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Other than brand new Gotham, tonight is kind of a weird, bland night for TV. The CW shows are on repeat and on ABC, Shonda’s empire expands with a 2 hour premiere of her firefighter spin-off to Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19. Also, BASKETBALL! Everywhere.
“The Art of the Deal”
March 14, 2018
Fairy Rebellion. After-Life Ruminations. Political Intrigue. Book Club and Cupcakes. After a few weeks of ground breaking story telling episodes, The Magicians gave us a jam-packed episode of forward moving story progress. Other than Kady, who had the week off, all of our Magicians had story line movement this week which is essential as pivot towards the end of the season. A Note: After consultation with everything The Magicians puts out, I am reverting to the base spelling of Fairy in lieu of Faery. I think the latter is more correct but every where else, they use Fair(y)(ies), so there you go.
Our deep dive recap and review (Beware! Spoilers Ahead) … After the jump!
Wednesdays get even better because we not only have The Magicians to watch but right after this week’s trippy timeline episode, Syfy premieres its new DC Comics property show, Krypton! These are our Top Picks To Watch Tonight!! Also on the bubble, Riverdale, Life Sentence and The Men Who Built America are all new.
The Alienist gut punched viewers last week with a notable character death so expect the fall out to really hit home tonight in this, the penultimate episode of the season and our Top Pick To Watch Tonight! Elsewhere, new Good Girls and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow lead our What To Watch pack with The Good Doctor and Scorpion as suitable runners-up.
