Prime Picks

Lethal Weapon (FOX): New. Riggs and Murtaugh investigate after a car filled with drugs is stolen from impound. Runs 61 minutes.

Six (History): Series Premiere. Follows members of Navy SEAL Team Six who is tasked with eliminating a Taliban leader in Afghanistan, but things go bad after finding a U.S. citizen working with terrorists. The team is led by Richard ‘Rip’ Taggart, played by Walton Goggins (Justified) who later after leaving the team for the private sector gets captured. The team is then tasked with getting him back. So, Joe Graves, played by Barry Sloane (Revenge), Alex Caulder, played by Kyle Schmid (Copper) and Ricky “Buddha” Ortiz, played by Juan Pablo Raba (Narcos) set out to do so. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 61 minutes. Plays twice and again later twice. I liked the first couple episodes and will continue on with it, even though it doesn’t something in the first episode to set up the rest of the season that I don’t particularly care for. But, the cast is great and the action pieces are well done. Will you be checking this one out tonight?
