Blindspot - Heave Fiery Knot

Given the mission from Sandstorm, Jane (Jaimie Alexander) and the FBI investigate one of her tattoos that leads the team to a corrupt DEA agent (Ed Moran) selling government-captured guns, including stinger missiles, to drug cartels. Continued to be frozen out by her former friends (who let her be tortured in a CIA black site for months) while seeing the the Sandstorm missions expose corruption and take down dangerous people, Jane continues her internal debate on which side she should be fighting. Weller‘s (Sullivan Stapleton) distancing while dealing with his father’s death and the truth about the woman he hoped Jane Doe was isn’t helping matters.

Lethal Weapon - Pilot

Well, at least it’s better than the new Rush Hour TV-series. Yeah, that is an incredibly low bar. The show’s “Pilot” introduces us to Clayne Crawford as the new Detective Martin Riggs, a Texas good ‘ol boy relocated to Los Angeles after the death of his wife and unborn child six months earlier. Riggs’ new partner is career cop Roger Murtaugh (a completely miscast Damon Wayans) coming off of heart surgery and not ready for the crazy antics of his new partner. The pair’s first two cases involve a bank robbery Riggs solves by killing all three suspects and blowing up the bank (which doesn’t get him suspended) and a soldier’s apparent suicide which is obviously something more.

Set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. begins its Fourth Season with the Sokovia Accords firmly in place requiring all super-powered beings to be registered with the government. For Daisy (Chloe Bennet) that means life back on the run continuing to hunt down the Watchdogs. For S.H.I.E.L.D. that means increased funding, bureaucracy, and oversight and a new director who will go nameless over the course of the season premiere.

The Good Place - Pilot

Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) wakes up in the afterlife to learn she’s died and made it into an exclusive community in heaven simply called “the Good Place” where her soulmate Chidi (William Jackson Harper) is waiting and she can look forward to a blissful eternity. There is however one problem. It seems Eleanor only got into heaven because of a clerical error. Sure, the saleswoman was no murderer, but she did sell fake medicine to old people (among other flaws), and didn’t exactly earn her cushy spot in paradise.
