This week on TV (7-13Dec)

7-13dez

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: The show continues funny as ever (despite not being worthy of a Golden Globe, apparently), but that last scene, when Rosa is all smiles, just warms my heart.

Jane the Virgin: Wow, the show got me a little scared for a moment there. Stuff was being revealed, sparks were flying all over, and now Rafael knows Jane is a virgin and Jane knows that Rafael was willing to lose everything for her… wow… and then some more sparks literally flew. Rogelio is the funniest character on the show, he just cracks me up.

The Big Bang Theory: What a sweet and funny Christmas episode.  I love how they keep advancing Sheldon and Amy’s relationship with baby steps and very naturally.

Selfie: Wow, what a great episode this was. Karen Gillian and John Cho really gave their all in this episode. I do hope that through some sort of Christmas miracle, the show is picked up for some network… seriously, it’s the best new sitcom of the year (for me), how could they have cancelled is beyond me. Eliza’s karaoke and drunken state broke my heart.

Scorpion: Am I the only one who thinks that Sylvester and Megan are going to have a thing?! Either way, I ship it! What I don’t ship is Walter with anyone who isn’t Paige… when Agent Simone Taylor goes in for the kiss, I literally covered my eyes… no, no and no!

Supernatural: Wow, this mid-season finale has everyone! Castiel tries to help his vessel daughter (who is great by the way and I hope appears more often), he enlists the help of the brothers. It’s great that we had a Destiel moment, we hadn’t had one of those in a while, where Dean tells Cas that he’s not ok, and if things turn bad, he wants him to kill him (even if Sam tries to stop him, which he will). Things don’t end well though, with Dean killing a bunch of guys to feed the Mark and Sammy desperately pleading with his brother… sad… Meanwhile, in hell, the King a.k.a. Crowley, a.k.a. Fergus, has a bonding moment with his mommy, a.k.a. the superwitch Rowena… this will be fun!

Forever: We finally found the identity of the mysterious caller, after he turned Henry’s life into a living hell. I thought for sure that he would tell Jo about his condition… oh well…

Criminal Minds: What a twisted, sick episode… It seriously gets to me that after 10 years they can still tell these creepy stories. It was a great episode, I’m sad that Aaron and Beth broke up, but it was predictable given that she hasn’t been around and it was lovely to see Rossi worried about his friends and making him go out and meet new people.

This Week on TV (1-7Dec)

Sleepy Hollow: So, when they return, will Ichabod be riding a motorcycle?! Irving?! Come back Irving… Ichabod’s fight with Katrina was intense, he clearly still loves her, but they seriously need to work on that relationship…

Supernatural: I love Jody Mills. I think she became some sort of substitute for Bobby in the boys lives. So naturally I really enjoyed this episode, a follow-up of sorts in Jody’s life after she took in Alex. Pairing up Jody with Sheriff Donna Hanscum was a stroke of genius! I love their chemistry and I do hope that they make their way to another episode soon, and together. But can we vary the kind of monsters that Jody faces?

Forever: This week Forever tackled the issue of living a false life and finally addressed the problems that Henry faces when someone who saw him die sees him again. Is it cool that I was way more excited about Abe’s ex/future girlfriend than I should because of Fringe?!

Castle: Expendables, anyone?! Just saying… Castle was such a great fanboy in this episode 😀

Elementary: Is it OK that I’m liking Kitty way more than Watson and Sherlock (combined)?!

Forever… I’ll be watching!

The premise is not exactly new, either way you look at it… a medical examiner partnering with a detective?! It happens a lot on TV. An immortal guy?! Sure, we had a few of those… An immortal medical examiner helping a Detective… well, that’s kind of new.

Sure, is it silly, yeah, but fascinating as hell, because immortality is one of those things that will always be interesting, such as time travelling, because it’s so “unreal” and yet, wouldn’t you want it not to be?

So the show focus on Dr. Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd), a man who found out that he was immortal over 200 years ago and has since died often and always come back totally naked in a body of water. He has no idea why it is that he can’t stay dead, but is determined to find an answer. Helping him, is his only friend and confident Abe (Judd Hirsch), that promptly tells him that being alive is not living, and whose relationship with Henry we begin to understand as the pilot draws to a close (and if you don’t shed a tear at that, I don’t know…).

IOAN GRUFFUDD, JOEL DAVID MOORE

Alana de la Garza (Law & Order alumna 😉 ), plays detective Jo Martinez, a widow with a liking for alcoholic beverages. And Joel David Moore (Colin Fisher for us, Bones fans) plays Lucan Wan, a medical examiner, colleague to Dr. Henry.

Forever is somehow fresh and funny, and at moments, unexpectedly deep. So yeah, I’ll be watching this one.
