Chicago PD 4×10 ‘You Wish’

I love it when I’m right! Not only is Jimmy not the father, but it was even suggested that Voight could be. When will Erin find out, and what will she do with this information?

The Goldbergs 4×12 ‘Snow Day’: Snow knives!

The kids are celebrating a snow day on The Goldbergs with forts and essays. Of course one of those does not make sense, but it soon will. Barry and Adam discover their father isn’t so strong as he appears, and Erica sees her worst nightmare come true when Beverly learns she is indeed her daughter’s hero.

The Big Bang Theory 10×12 ‘The Holiday Summation’: Special circumstances

You can’t win them all and that’s the conclusion with this week’s episode of The Big Bang Theory. After a break you want something a little more than a quick hey. You want a full on conversation but that’s not what we got the gang met up to talk about how their holidays had been…and for some reason Stuart is still trying to be a thing.

Chicago PD 4×09 ‘Don’t Read the News’

This week we get two Chicago PD’s in two days. Surprise! This episode Lindsay meets her biological father for the first time. But is he really her bio dad? Between Jay’s offer to run a DNA test ‘in case this whole thing is a fantasy’ and Voight revealing he knew Bunny before Erin was even born, I have a sneaking suspicion Voight might not only be Erin’s surrogate father but her biological one too.

Chicago PD 4×08 ‘Don’t Bury This Case’ Burgess the Badge Bunny

Chicago PD is back after an entire month on hiatus. And it wastes no time in getting straight to the drama. This episode starts us off with the interrogation of Kelly Severide a Lieutenant at Firehouse 51. It appears that this storyline was setup in Chicago Fire as we begin the night with Kelly already in custody and awaiting questioning. The crime he is suspected of is a hit and run. Which is made even worse as it not only appears that Kelly was under the influence while he was driving, but the car that he hit was a mini van carrying a mother and her ten year old daughter, who later dies of her injuries. It is quite a dramatic storyline; save for the fact that you know Kelly didn’t do it. Perhaps if he had been found guilty I would have been more interested, however since it was a predictable storyline I was more interested in a the topic of sexism that was broached.

The Goldbergs 4×11 ‘O Captain! My Captain!’: Frizzica

Beverly has always been an overachiever when it’s come to parenting, but she’s now taken that up a notch now that she’s in the school system on The Goldbergs. And it went overboard this week after she saw one of the most inspiring movies about teaching – ever. Meanwhile Adam was learning that his shirts vs. skins games may not be as bad as what his puberty stricken BFF is going through. Thankfully his sister was around to set him straight.

Bones 12×01 ‘The Hope in the Horror’: What’s old is new again

This is it, folks — Bones’ last-ever season premiere! After twelve years, the venerable “crimedy” is bidding us all adieu in this final twelve-episode run, and if tonight’s episode is any indication, the show is determined to go out swinging.

When we last left our heroes, a thoroughly creepy serial killer was stringing up his victims like marionettes, the team raced against the clock to uncover his identity, and Brennan faced some of her own skeletons in the closet with the reappearance of disgraced original intern Zack as their prime suspect. Almost six months (and a new calendar year!) later, things aren’t looking too good for Dr. Addy, and we’re all wondering whether his isolation over the years really does harbor a deadly secret. Coupled with ‘Hope’ being Emily Deschanel’s directorial debut, this effort is sure to be memorable.

Fresh Off the Boat 3×09 ‘How to Be An American’: Modern romantic

At first this seemed like a rerun since I’m pretty sure we’ve all heard that octopus story from Louis, but behold – Fresh Off the Boat found a new way to present it as we learned the real story behind how he and Jessica came to be as she awaited her citizenship. While their parents were down at the government office, the boys were home from school and getting blackmailed by their grandma.

The Big Bang Theory 10×11 ‘The Birthday Synchronicity’: Halley’s arrival

Finally! It’s like Bernadette and Howard have been expecting for a year now on The Big Bang Theory. Well that wait is over and instead of focusing on what was going on inside the room, the couple got their privacy – for once, while their friends sat in the waiting room looking back on how far they’ve all come. What sounds like a series finale was only the middle of their tenth season. As we also learned whether or not they were having a boy or a girl, Amy’s wait for birthday sex was lengthened.

The Goldbergs 4×10 ‘Han Ukkah Solo’: The wonder

We all have to grow up, but this week’s episode of The Goldbergs showed us that even though aging is going to happen you don’t have to lose that part of you that allows you to see the good in everything. While Pops was dishing out wise words, Beverly was lying to get what she wanted out of Erica.

Fresh Off the Boat 3×08 ‘Where are the Giggles?’: Freaking Elmo

It’s Christmas time on Fresh Off the Boat (and every other show right now) and with that comes a lesson about the holidays. Eddie learned he couldn’t just celebrate Kwanzaa, Jessica got a lesson about her youngest and Marv saw those pesky three ghosts we all know from A Christmas Carol.

The Walking Dead 7×08 ‘Hearts Still Beating’: The embers of rebellion

So, in the end, this half season was passable, if only barely.  The season premiere was wretched, the worst the show has ever offered.  Episodes in the middle of the season have ranged from actually very good (“The Well”) to halfway decent (“The Cell”) to rather mediocre (“Swear”).  Overall, the quality of the season varied wildly, and while it was decent enough, it was certainly the worst the show has been in a while.

The Walking Dead 7×07 ‘Sing Me a Song’: Negan’s world

The Walking Dead’s clearest goal right now needs to be the development of Negan’s character.  For the most part, the introduction of Negan was supposed to be the jolt of adrenaline that revived The Walking Dead, giving it energy that was to propel it through its seventh season.  Instead, Negan has been the season’s weak link, mostly swaggering through each scene he’s in with awful Kirkland-esque dialogue and no real personality to speak of.  If attention is going to be diverted away from Rick, if main characters like Abraham and Glenn are going to be purged (and Abraham, if you remember, had a fantastic episode in Season 5), if the main cast is going to split up, there had better be enough intrigue to fill the void.

The Goldbergs 4×09 ‘Globetrotters’:” Making moments

On the surface I am very much like Murray on The Goldbergs. Emotions are not really my thing when it comes to people, but like him with sports – I am full of feelings when it comes to TV, and with that…I was full of tears this week thanks to scrapbooks and the Harlem Globetrotters.

Fresh Off the Boat 3×07 ‘The Taming of the Dads’: RIP Jerry

Lately I’ve felt like Fresh Off the Boat was losing me just a little in the humor department, but that dry spell ended tonight with an insane amount of ‘90s references, Jessica taking control of the court and Louis finding a new friend.

The Big Bang Theory 10×10 ‘The Property Division Collision’: Unexpected Break

Just when you thought this was just an episode of The Big Bang Theory about Sheldon and Leonard facing the emotions that came with saying goodbye to one another as roommates. Instead we got Stuart the mooch back and quite the ending to that; what appeared to be the b-plot but was obviously the more life altering one.

The Goldbergs 4×08 ‘The Greatest Musical Ever Written’: Lasagna

Half of my high school existence was spent in theater but I was never as passionate about it as Adam on The Goldbergs. While I would’ve been happy far in the background of something like Phantom of the Opera, this kid was living for it – too bad his brother wasn’t. While Barry was figuring out a way to sabotage his brother’s endeavor, Erica was trying to escape her mother’s Home Economics class.

Fresh Off the Boat 3×06 ‘WWJD: What Would Jessica Do?’: Costco

As if I couldn’t love Jessica from Fresh Off the Boat anymore, she showed her major appreciation for Costco this week. Of course it came with some heartache as she lost her shopping buddy to a higher power. While she was dealing with that, her other sons were trying to make the boring cereal taste good, and her husband was struggling with his new, bright smile.

The Walking Dead 7×06 ‘Swear’: Faith and trust

I thought that The Walking Dead was going to take my “diverse communities” idea only so far.  Alexandria.  The Hilltop.  The Kingdom.  The Sanctuary.  That’s already quite a bit to juggle.  So how much more does The Walking Dead think it can chew off?  Does Gimple really think that adding another community to the mix is going to work?  I mean, I could be proven wrong, and Oceanside could be a fascinating take that is a great addition to the overall story, but as of right now, nothing has coalesced at all.  Everything is so separate from each other that it’s going to take a whole lot of heavy lifting to bring it all together.
