Then we discuss the second season premieres of Sleepy Hollow, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Resurrection and the fourth season premiere of Person of Interest. Lastly, we make some TV recommendations. We previewed ABC, Cable, CBS, FOX and NBC previously.
Haven (Syfy): New. Dwight and Nathan disagree about how to handle Mara. Plays again later.
Scandal (ABC): New. Fitz is prepping for the State of the Union. Mellie continues to deal with the loss of her child, but the public gets a look at how.
Parenthood (NBC): New. Kristina deals with problems at the new school, as does Adam. Zeek has some tough decisions regarding his health. Joel and Julia find out why Sydney is having problems at school.
Bones (FOX): New. Agent Aubrey attempts to help the team solve the case of who is behind the conspiracy, but some surprising DNA evidence may swing the case.
Gracepoint (FOX): Series Premiere. A boy is found dead on the beach of a small coastal town in Northern California and anyone in town is a suspect. A local detective just back from vacation finds that the promotion she was expecting was filled by an outsider. They end up partnered to solve the case. This is a 10-part series based on the British series Broadchurch. If you’ve seen Broadchurch, there isn’t much reason to watch this. I’ve seen the first two episodes and they are almost identical to the first two episodes of Broadchurch. From what I understand, that pretty much holds through episodes seven and then it starts to diverge and may or may not lead to a different conclusion. I don’t plan on watching anymore, but if you like this kind of series and haven’t seen the British version, it is well done with a great cast.
How to Get Away With Murder (ABC): New. An accused murderer is defended by Annalise while she also begins to suspect that her husband may have been involved in the disappearance of a student.
Blue Bloods (ION): Seven episodes tonight.
Castle (TNT): Seven episodes tonight.
CSI: Crimes Scene Investigation (USA Network): Has 14 episodes.
