When Fall TV officially starts we are calling Saturday’s “DVR Catch Up Day”. Recap what you missed this week.

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.

Falling Skies: “The Price Of Greatness”:

Falling Skies Was Thrilling! The 2nd Mass Has Finally Made It To Charleston, But It Seems That It May Not Be What They Expected.

Longmire: “Unfinished Business” (Season 1 Finale):

We Learned More About Walt’s Mysterious Past, And The Truth About His Wife. There’s A Bigger Picture, That Hints That Walt May Have Committed Murder.

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”:

Tonight’s Episode Of Saving Hope Was Thrilling! I Continue To Love How The Show Puts A Unique Twist On The Average Medical Drama, By Adding Charlie’s Experience To The Equation. Tonight’s Episode Really Took A Serious Tone, And Used Heavy Doses Of Suspense. To Me, This Was Great! Tonight’s Episode Left A Huge Cliffhanger At The End, By Leaving Viewers Guessing Whether Charlie Will Survive Or Not. I’m Really Becoming A Fan Of The Series, But Sadly, I Feel That This Will Be It’s One And Only Season. I Don’t Expect The Show To Get A Second Season, As It’s Not A Huge Hit Here In The U.S., And It’s Just Not Getting The Ratings. However, I Do Feel That The Show Will Continue With A Second Season In Canada, Where It Is Produced, And Where It’s Getting The Ratings. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Saving Hope. Watch Saving Hope Live: Thursday’s At 9/8C. On NBC.
