Prime Picks

Almost Human (FOX): New. A smart home seems to be targeting its residents. Kennex and Dorian investigate and must deal with a weird hologram to do so.

Being Human (Syfy): New. Josh is fearing for his future with Nora after his life takes a surprising turn. Aidan continues to struggle with his hunger. Sally gets some information from someone from her past. Plays again later.

Castle (ABC): New. A mean girl gets killed and Castle and Beckett investigate. The prime suspect is someone that looks to have kinetic powers. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 59 minutes.

Solid Selections

Switched at Birth (ABC Family): New. Daphne puts together a birthday party for Campbell. Kathryn puts on a murder mystery party. Bay hopes to get invited to Tank’s party. Plays again later.

The Following (FOX): New. Ryan and Max get their hands on a suspect. Joe begins to put together a new plan. Emma begins to realize how dangerous the company is that she has been keeping.

Teen Wolf (MTV): New. Scott is out to prevent a disaster. Lydia and Alison attempt to find an unlikely teacher. Last week’s episode, “Riddled,” replays right before.

Other Options

  • Bitten (Syfy): New. Elena has headed back to Toronto and Santos shows up with a way out of the Pack. Jeremy has to fight to keep his Alpha status. Plays again later.
  • Intelligence (CBS): New. Intelligence scientists are being killed by micro robots and Cybercom investigates.

  • Star-Crossed (The CW): Series Premiere. An alien spaceship crash lands and 10 years later an attempt to integrate the two societies is made by sending seven alien teenagers to high school. There is some interesting potential with this type of story, but they really focus on the Romeo-and-Juliet-ness of the situation. I’ve seen the first couple and will give it a couple more, but there are some things about the story that are hard to get around. Check out some video interviews with the Star-Crossed cast, creator and executive producers.
