once-upon-a-time-the-savior

While leaving the return of the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) to be explored next week, the season premiere of Once Upon a Time focuses primarily on Emma (Jennifer Morrison) who begins having shakes and visions following the arrival of Hyde (Sam Witwer) and an unknown number of companions from the Land of Untold Stories. Exploring just who and what the Savior is appears to be one of the season’s big themes, which begins with a flashback revealing that Emma isn’t the first Savior and is followed much later by the revelation of what end fate has in store for Emma courtesy of both Hyde and the Oracle (Jordyn Ashley Olson). As to the identity of the villain destined to take down the Savior, we’ll just have to wait and see who it is revealed to be.

Set a few years after the events of “Twilight of the Apprentice,” Star Wars Rebels begins its Third Season with an older Ezra (Taylor Gray) leading missions for the Rebellion, a blinded Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.) spending most of his days in seclusion, and the Empire bringing in new resources to deal with the Rebel threat by enlisting the assistance of Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen). For the first time in the series the Rebels will be pitted against an Imperial officer willing to play the long game and not fall for the Rebels’ usual tricks. Since we’ve seen him last Ezra hasn’t grown any less reckless but he has grown more powerful in the Force thanks to the Sith Holocron which he’s kept secret from his master and shipmates but the changes in his demeanor haven’t gone unnoticed by his friends.

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.

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.
