‘Nashville’ Preview: “Road Happy” [Photos and Video]

Last week’s episode of Nashville showed a glimpse of Rayna’s wild side and even her determination in surpassing Jeff Fordham in every way possible. By the end of the episode she signed Sadie Stone to Highway 65 and showed Fordham just how tough she is. Luke and Rayna are combining their tours so they can spend more time together and plan the wedding that works for them. Zoey thought something was going on between Gunnar and Scarlett but turns out she’s just a paranoid girlfriend whose friends were just trying to throw a girl a surprise party.

Avery is just a big ole mess and has probably a bit more to go before hitting rock bottom. Juliette still hasn’t told him about the baby, which she should really do at this point. She initially wanted to give the baby up for adoption but I think that’s going to change now that she thought she lost it. But can we talk about when she went to see Glenn at his house and he was without his toupee? Super sweet.

This week’s episode titled “Road Happy” finds Juliette struggling to hide her pregnancy while shooting sex scenes for her new movie. Rayna’s increased fame is creating a lot of new changes and problems with her children. Daphne is feeling a bit entitled while Maddie is still super miserable and selfish. Will is still struggling to keep his bride and Jeff Fordham happy by staying in the closet and goes on to make a few mistakes that could cost him. Meanwhile, Scarlett is still her annoying self and finds a homeless man that inspires her while songwriting.

Check out a clip and a few stills from this week’s episode.

Nashville airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.

‘Arrow’ Preview: “Corto Maltese” [Photos and Video]

Last week’s episode dealt with the death of one of their own as well as showing us that Thea is alive and well with her father off in Corto Maltese. Oh, and she’s also learning how to fight. Seems like she’s bonded with the man that she originally wanted nothing to do with.

This week’s episode has Oliver, Diggle and Roy on a trip to bring Thea back home where she belongs. While they’re there, Diggle is to find one of Lyla’s operative’s who’s gone dark and goes by the name of Mark Shaw (David Cubitt). Felicity starts her new job, working for Ray Palmer and we’re not sure how she’s going to break that news to Oliver and the rest of the team.

Check out a trailer and stills from this week’s episode below.

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.

Episode Description: OLIVER SEARCHES FOR THEA IN CORTO MALTESE WHILE DIGGLE TRACKS A.R.G.U.S. AGENT MARK SHAW — Oliver (Stephen Amell) decides it’s time for Thea (Willa Holland) to come back to Starling City, so he packs for Corto Maltese, where Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) has traced Thea’s whereabouts. Lyla (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) asks Diggle (David Ramsey) to go with Oliver because one of her field operatives, Mark Shaw (guest star David Cubitt), has gone dark in Corto Maltese and she’d like him to look into it. Feeling responsible for Thea’s departure, Roy (Colton Haynes) joins Oliver and Diggle on their journey. Shaw double-crosses Diggle, putting numerous A.R.G.U.S. agents, including Lyla, at risk. Meanwhile, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) meets Ted Grant (J.R. Ramirez), and Felicity adjusts to her new job.

‘The Good Wife’ Preview: “Shiny Objects” [Photos and Video]

Last week’s episode of The Good Wife was probably one of the best episode of the entire series. I wanted them to shoot the entire episode at the table. We can tell that Eli and Alicia are getting pretty serious about her running for State’s Attorney, to the point that they brought well respected campaign manager, Jonathan Elfman (Steven Pasquale) to the house to discuss oppo research. That took quite the turn when they brought some pretty tough secrets to light, especially ones that Alicia didn’t know about. Not only did Zach lie to her and say he was going to look at colleges for the weekend, but he went with his then-girlfriend, Neesa, to get an abortion and didn’t tell her about it. Even her parents knew about it. This made Alicia’s skin boil. I mean, I’d be pissed too. Now she thinks he’s lying about everything, including the bong photos from last season. Good thing Eli didn’t let Jonathan Elfman (Steven Pasquale) tell her about the intern in Peter’s office. That would have been too much.

This week’s episode titled “Shiny Objects” has the entire team of Florrick/Agos/Lockhart on red alert when a hacker seizes control and threatens to delete all of their files.

‘Nashville’ Preview: “I Feel Sorry for Me” [Photos]

Last week’s episode was as dramatic as ever. We ended with Juliette on Rayna’s doorstep, asking for advice as to how they hell she is going to deal with this whole baby issue, and Deacon having a little fun on the road with someone other than Miss Rayna herself.

This week’s episode titled “I Feel Sorry for Me” has Rayna going after Sadie Stone (Laura Benanti) as a new artist to sign over to Highway 65, not to mention taking her away from Jeff Fordham will be such a victory for her and her label. I mean, we all sort of saw that coming. Plus, Sadie is such a huge fan why wouldn’t she want to work with her idol?

Meanwhile, Juliette is going to have to tell her team at some point that she’s prego. She’s got a terrible case of morning sickness, has crazy mood swings, and obviously doesn’t want people thinking she’s on drugs. So there’s that. Over in the love triangle world that is Zoey, Scarlett and Gunnar – Zoey thinks there’s something going on and let’s her crazy paranoia get the best of her. Although she’s probably right but Scarlett and Gunnar just don’t want to admit it.

Let’s hope Avery is finally getting his shit together this week. He really needs to call Juliette back and stop drinking so much and sleeping around. Poor thing. Also, Maddie is driving me nuts. I understand that she’s having a hard time and wants her parents (Deacon and Rayna) to get back together but she has got to get herself in check. Plus she whines a lot.

NBC’s ‘Marry Me’: “Pilot” Preview [Photos and Videos]

I knew this day would come! Casey Wilson will finally be back on my television screen on a weekly basis (if all goes well). NBC’s Marry Me is one of the cutest shows this fall TV season and let’s not forget it has a pretty talented cast as well, including Ken Marino, Tim Meadows and JoBeth Williams.

Marry Me - Season 1

Marry Me feels like the story I’ve been hearing for years from a lot of my female friends. They’ve been dating their boyfriend for about six years and he still hasn’t popped the question – he’s afraid of commitment but you know they’re meant to be.

The series follows Jake and Annie as they tell their story of how they met and how they keep trying to propose to each other, as they just can’t seem to get it right. The show opens with Jake and Annie returning from a romantic getaway vacation and he still hasn’t proposed. So while he’s kneeling on one knee, she’s roaming around the kitchen yelling at him about how he missed the perfect moment (because she’s turned around), all while the entire family is hiding in the closets and rooms listening to her rant. Did I mention that Tim Meadows and Dan Bucatinsky play Annie’s dads? Sold.

It’s an adorable show that viewers will tune-in to because Ken Marino and Casey Wilson are just hilarious on their own but even more perfect when paired together. I was a huge fan of Happy Endings (Casey Wilson is my spirit animal) and Ken Marino is absolute perfection in everything he does, especially Veronica Mars and Eastbound & Down. Also, can you believe he’s 46??? Ridiculous.

Now I’m not sure what’s going to happen after the pilot, since they pretty much tell their story in one episode, but I’m sure those flashbacks will continue and show the gradual progression of their relationship that got them to where they are today. I feel like it might take some convincing to stick with it, but I’m in.

Marry Me premieres Tuesday, Oct. 14 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.

NBC Episode Description: JAKE PLANS A ROMANTIC AT-HOME PROPOSAL TO SURPRISE ANNIE BUT THINGS DO NOT GO EXACTLY AS PLANNED – After returning from a romantic tropical vacation, Jake (Ken Marino, “Eastbound and Down”) is all set to pop the question on bended knee, but before he can ask, Annie (Casey Wilson, “Happy Endings”) lets loose on Jake for his inability to commit. Annie tries to make amends with a proposal of her own but the comedy of errors continues. The only thing we know for sure is that these two are destined to be together — whether they can get it together or not. Sarah Wright Olsen, John Gemberling, Tymberlee Hill and Tim Meadows also star. JoBeth Williams and Dan Bucatinsky guest star.

‘Scandal’ Preview: “Like Father, Like Daughter” [Photos and Video]

Scandal is just so scandalicious and I’m absolutely loving it! Let’s start off with Olivia shall we? Why can’t she just get over Fitz and be with Jake. I mean, he’s there for her apparently doing things to her that she likes and even came back to the States for her. Jake on the other hand, keeps telling her that he’s not her boyfriend, so he can’t have dinner with her creepy father, because she’s in love with another man. Speaking of Rowan, Jake knows what he did. He knows that he had Harrison and Jerry killed and told him to leave town and to never come back. We all know that Rowan would never fall for that no matter how big the threat. I think that dinner went pretty well, don’t you?

Now on to Mellie, who is still struggling to get back to normal life, which is completely understandable. She becomes fixated on this national news story about a husband and wife who went hiking only to have the husband fall to his death and the wife presumed to have pushed him. She basically calls a cabinet meeting only to find herself embarrassed as they’ve already solved the case.

David Rosen seems to have found himself inside the President’s inner circle, a.k.a The Bubble. He helps President Grant with the issue of gun control, only to find the senator he had blackmailed is now dead. Suicide by gun. Go figure.

Lizzie (Portia de Rossi) is still doing whatever it is that she’s doing and it seems to be working, as no last name Michael (Matthew Del Negro) finally got Cyrus to give it up. We all know it’s going to come out that he’s paid for sex with a male prostitute.

In this week’s episode titled “Like Father, Like Daughter,” Fitz asks Olivia to shut down a situation that could destroy the Grant family’s reputation – assuming this has something to do with Olivia finding Karen Grant, now played by Mary Mouser, which we reported earlier last month.

Scandal airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.

‘How to Get Away with Murder’ Preview: “Let’s Get to Scooping” [Photos and Videos]

ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder is the hot new drama this fall TV season. It debuted to 14.3 million viewers and has already been picked up for a full season only three episodes in. The drama series will run for a full 15 episodes, which was the plan all along.

I’m still not sold on the show entirely as there are just too many main characters and story lines to go with it. Annalise is cheating on her husband who might have been involved with a student and her murder. Then we are meant to assume that Bonnie and Annalise’s husband, Sam, are involved, which is a crazy shape of a disaster. Frank has a thing for Laurel, and went to find her at a bar only to see her making out with someone else. Come on, Laurel, how did you not see him there?

Meanwhile, Michaela’s finds out that her fiancé went to boarding school with Connor, and by boarding school, we mean they were totally hooking up. Oh, and let’s not forget about Wes, who’s trying to help Rebecca only to get caught by Annalise herself.

‘The Blacklist’ Preview: “Dr. Linus Creel” [Photos and Video]

Last week’s Blacklist reminded me so much of that bad Jude Law movie Repo Men, except the doctor was using real organs and not artificial ones. It also marked the debut of Paul Reubens’ character Mr. Vargas, who is super creepy by the way. But I think that’s just Paul Reubens in general. We also left off with Red visiting his ex-wife – not knowing how her hand is with the loss of a digit. But when it comes down to it, we all want to know what Naomi (Mary-Louise Parker) is hiding. She obviously has a secret and it has to do with Elizabeth.

There are too many similarities between Liz’s story about the fire when she was a little girl and her father that make us want to believe there’s a connection to Reddington. The preview definitely leads us to believe Naomi and Red know something that they haven’t told us.

Liz also has some new people in her life that she doesn’t trust including Samar, who we know is working for Reddington. And now there’s this new “neighbor” who is obviously a bad guy. I mean, why else would he have a giant assault rifle in his room. And why on earth would she voluntarily give up the fact that she’s a federal agent to a complete stranger when she is somewhat off the grid, moving from motel to motel.

This week’s episode titled “Dr. Linus Creel,” Red tips off Liz that a dangerous social-psychological experiment may be underway after a series of seemingly nonviolent citizens become killers. He also “tries to convince Naomi (Mary-Louise Parker) and her husband into accepting a complicated proposition.”

The Blacklist airs Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.

The CW’s ‘Jane the Virgin’: “Pilot” Preview [Photos]

The CW’s Jane the Virgin is by far one of the best pilots I’ve seen all year. I might even go as far as saying even the last couple of years. I fell in the love with the show, the characters and Gina Rodriguez the minute I pressed play. Based on the telenovela Juana la Virgen, “Jane” is the perfect daughter; good grades, dating the perfect guy (Brett Dier) and never gets into trouble.

The series follows Jane as she accidentally gets inseminated after a routine checkup at her doctor’s office. Turns out, the father of Jane’s (unintentional) baby is Rafael (Justin Baldoni), a guy who she had a romantic day with years ago and also happens to be her current boss. You can’t make this stuff up! Oh, wait, you can.

The show is as campy and as soapy as it sounds, which is the best part. Jane, her mother (Andrea Navedo) and grandmother (Ivonne Call) all sit and watch telenovelas every day together. The show definitely has an ABC feel to it, a-la Ugly Betty with a CW twist.

Gina Rodriguez is absolutely refreshing and the show is definitely a must-see.

Jane the Virgin premieres on Monday, Oct. 13 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.

A NEW ONE-HOUR COMEDY ON THE CW — Jane Villanueva (Gina Rodriguez) is a driven young woman studying to become a teacher, nursing a dream to be a writer, and supporting herself with a job at a hot new Miami hotel. All the years of watching telenovelas with the two women who raised her — her sexy, young-at-heart mother, Xiomara (Andrea Navedo) and her still-devout grandmother, Alba (Ivonne Coll) — have given Jane a slightly unrealistic view of romance, but her wonderful fiancé, Michael (Brett Dier), is supportive and even understands her decision to “save herself” until marriage. All of Jane’s meticulous life plans are turned upside down, however, when she sees her doctor for a routine check-up and is accidentally artificially inseminated with a specimen meant for someone else. Now, Jane is faced with the most important decisions of her life — a life that has suddenly become as dramatic, complicated and unpredictable as the telenovelas she has always loved. Justin Baldoni, Jaime Camil and Yael Grobglas also star.

‘Castle’ Preview: “Clear & Present Danger” [Photos and Video]

Castle is still unsure about what happened to him during the two months he was missing, but he uncovered the fact that he found a way to make himself forget. I’m sure that won’t last long and will eat away at him, trying to find out those missing pieces of time. I know I couldn’t live with not knowing what happened. No matter how bad it was.
