Prime Picks

Life in Pieces (CBS): New. Joan puts a family meeting together. Jen gets a breast-feeding consultant. Matt and Colleen go on a bad date. Starts a minute after the half hour and runs 29 minutes. You can hear my thoughts on last week’s Life in Pieces series premiere. What did you think of last week’s premiere? Will you be watching again?

Chasing Life (ABC Family): Season Finale. April and Beth are getting ready to leave for Rome. Greer might be moving back to Boston. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 60 minutes.

Blindspot (NBC): New. One of Jane’s tattoos points to an Air Force pilot that has a plan for destruction. Weller thinks he might know who Jane is. You can hear my thoughts on last week’s Blindspot series premiere. Did you watch last week? Will you be watching episode two?

Solid Selections

Gotham (FOX): New. Gordon begins looking into the Arkham Asylum inmate escape. Bruce continues to trying to unlock the things found in his father’s office. It’s more of what they introduced last week. They really are going big with the villain’s.

Whose Line Is It Anyway? (The CW): New. Carson Kressley joins the group. Runs 30 minutes.
Significant Mother (The CW): New. Nate doesn’t like that his childhood home is going to be put up for sale. Starts at the half hour and runs 30 minutes. Keep forgetting to add this in to the daily picks, as I have really been enjoying it. Have you checked this one out?

Castle (ABC): New. This week we see Beckett’s disappearance from her point of view, whereas last week we saw it from Castle’s. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 59 minutes.

Other Options

  • NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS): Season Premiere. DEA Agent Campo comes to NCIS for help finding who murdered her partner. Deeks does something to surprise Kensi. Starts a minute before the hour and runs 61 minutes.
  • Minority Report (FOX): New. Dash teams up with Vega to go after someone killing women and needs help from his brother and sister. A few minutes into this episode and I was thinking why wasn’t this the premiere episode? It is such a better intro to the show, but then a few minutes later and it was just as frustratingly bad as the premiere. This is looking more and more like a big swing and a miss. You can hear my thoughts on last week’s Minority Report series premiere. Did you watch last week’s premiere? Will you be watching again this week?
  • Strike Back (Cinemax): Repeat. This past Friday night’s episode replays.
  • Switched at Birth (ABC Family): New. Daphne and Mingo find that their parents don’t particularly care for each other. Bay runs into Tank while out on a date with Garrett. Runs 61 minutes. Plays again later.

    Weatched “Life in Pieces” because of cast and as lead-in to one of our favorites, “Scorpion” but really did not like the show. Some of the ‘humor’ was too raunchy for our tastes and the rest was mediocre at best. Feel badly for Brolin and Weiss – as written, not a vehicle worthy of their talents.
