Tater on TV: What’s on Tonight 9/21/21

Tonight is a much busier TV night for me. A good mix of returning shows and new shows I want to try. I did realize after the fact yesterday that I omitted the CW from my list. I will correct that today. After I finish this post I am going to watch Ordinary Joe and will be back later this morning with a review.

ABC

8pm – Bachelor in Paradise – I have never watched an episode of any of these shows. I see no reason to start now.

10pm – The Ultimate Surfer – This started a few weeks back. I haven’t paid any attention to what it is.

CBS

8pm – FBI – I watched this one because I liked some of the actors in it. It is a decent procedural. We just recently finished the last season. I did enjoy that they brought in a villain that could be a recurring problem.

9pm – FBI: Most Wanted – The first spinoff of FBI. I find it very boring. The cast is not good. A lot of wooden, stilted acting. It is taking up a lot of space on my DVR. I need my wife to decide if we keep watching.

10pm – FBI: International – This show kind of already existed and was Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders. It is bascially the same show. The FBI unit working on crimes involving Americans abroad. One of the mothership FBI stars was in the Criminal Minds one. I don’t know anyone in the cast. I will give it a shot, but will have to wait for my wife to come home to try it.

CW

8pm – Stargirl – Not a premiere. It has been airing for a few weeks now. I love this show. One of the better shows in the DC universe.

9pm – Supergirl – We are heading toward the Supergirl series finale. It was much better in the beginning. It is probably time for it to wrap up. I will have to wait for my daughter to be home to watch it.

FOX

8pm – The Resident – I think this is one of the better medical shows on TV right now. It is a good ensemble cast. It doesn’t make it seem like everyone in medicine is automatically a good person, Villains are nuanced and can be redeemed. I will watch tonight to see how they write Emily VanCamp out of the show. The end of last season did not make it easy to have her character missing.

9pm – Our Kind of People – A new show set in Oak Bluffs, Massachussetts, the home of the rich and powerful Black elite. It focuses on a single mother who returns to town reclaim her family name. I just discovered it will only have five episodes. My wife said she wants to watch it. I’m pretty sure it is because I told her Morris Chestnut is in the show.

NBC

8pm – The Voice – One of the reasons we gave up on The Voice was that it was such a time commitment. Do we really need four hours a week?

10pm – New Amsterdam – Another medical show I like a lot. Another medical show that shows the bad side of the medical world. I like that they are willing to have many of the idealistic ideas from the star fail. I like the cast. I hope the new relationship on the show does not overwhelm the rest of the stories.

Various Other Non-Streaming Options

Impeachment: American Crime Story on FX at 10 pm – I watched the first two episodes and was bored. I don’t know if I will continue.

Deadliest Catch is on Discovery.

New episodes of Good Bones on HGTV.

New episodes of Beat Bobby Flay on Food Network.

  1. There’s not really anything of interest to me in there, which is a good thing. I sometimes Zoom stitch with friends I used to live stitch with on Tuesday nights, so I’d just as soon not have anything tempting me not to Zoom, which isn’t nearly as satisfying.

  2. Our Kind of People. I did not now it was only five episodes. That kind of answers the question I had about the lead actress, Yaya. She’s also on Chicago Med with a major role. I was wondering if she had left CM for this.
