What shows are you catching up on today?

Sunday August 12th:

Hell on Wheels Season 2 Premiere:

For a show in the final episodes of season one saw mass murdering of Indians and a reverend beheading someone with a sword it was a quiet start to season 2 but there is plenty more to go.

Monday August 13th:

Grimm Season 2 Premiere:

What a great start to the season! All the stops were pulled out in this episode and story just continues to get deeper. What I liked most was the episode picking right up from the season one finale as no transition was needed and it allowed the story to just progress. The new title sequence was also a great and welcomed surprise.

Alphas: 2×04 “When Push Comes To Shove”:

The Team Learn That Nina Has Gone Rouge. They Must Find Her, Capture Her, And Help Her In Any Way Possible.

Thursday August 16th:

Burn Notice 6×09 “Official Business”:

Burn Notice continues to impress and the story keeps going deeper. Micheal’s drive to find Nate’s killer and thus a man who was also involved with Anson has added a whole new dynamic to the show.

Suits 2×09 “Asterisk”:

What a bittersweet episode. Mike’s grandma passing before she could even see her new place was sad and this will surely have an effect on Mike through the final episodes of the season. At this moment everything hinges on the mind of Louis Litt.

Saving Hope: “Bea, Again”:

Charlie Begins Questioning Whether He Would Survive Or Not. Alex Continued To Express Her Belief (And Faith) In Charlie’s Survival.

Awkward 2×08 “Time After Time”:

Awkward remains the best show MTV has had since “The Hard Times Of RJ Berger”. Its hard not to root for all of these quirky characters.

Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Falling Skies Was Thrilling! The Episode Introduced A New Possibility That A Government/Safe Haven Has Been Established In Charleston. Also, One Of The Shows (Fairly Important) Characters Passes Away. Tonight’s Episode Also Introduced Quite A Bit Of Mystery, Such As: Is Charleston Really A Safe Haven, Or Is It A Trap? I’m Really Excited About The 2nd Season Of Falling Skies, And I Can’t Wait To See What It Has In Store. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Falling Skies. Watch Falling Skies Live: Sunday’s At 9/8C. On TNT.
