How Do You Enter the Wifi Password When the Computer's Your Brain?

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD on ABC at 8:00pm ET. First season winter premiere.

Intelligence on CBS at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is the new show that’s basically Chuck except serious and starring Josh Holloway rather than Zachary Levi. Guy with a computer chip in his head because a super-powered intelligence operative, egregious abuse of the word “hack”, and a blonde boss to help guide the cyber-enhanced individual through their new life. This version’s blonde boss is Marg Helgenberger who I genuinely can’t see as anyone but Catherine Willows from CSI so I’m probably going to spend half the pilot trying to figure out how a former stripper made it into an “elite government cyber-security agency.” Not that I doubt it could happen, I just think it might make a better story than “man with a computer for a brain!” again.

New Girl on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Third season winter premiere.

Cougar Town on TBS at 10:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere.

Justified on FX at 10:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere. There’s a few new shows premiering tonight that I feel very sad in neglecting, but I know that if I’d left this off I’d be flayed alive but the fans. No, wait, those are the Game of Thrones fans. What’s the appropriate punishment for Justified? It involves a shotgun, doesn’t it?

Genevieve Burgess encourages everyone experiencing the polar vortex to stay huddled in front of the TV under a pile of blankets and whatever close friends/domesticated animals are available.

Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned


  • See what they should have done is make a show where a stripper gets the computer chip in her head and becomes the super-powered intelligence operative. That'd be more interesting.

  • lowercase_ryan

    *scattergun

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Blunderbuss?

  • Stu Rat

    Marg's character doesn't seem to be smart enough to hold that job in an “elite government cyber-security agency.” That might make the show more realistic. Not sure yet.

  • Guest

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine @ 8:30 on FOX!

    *Intelligence also has Lance Reddick playing a DCI so I'm hoping he has to have a British accent.

  • Guest

    Also Killer Women @ 10 on ABC!

    Why? Tricia Helfer.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I hate Killer Women, if only because an ad pops up everytime I pause my TiVo. I don't care that I can make it go away. It's still annoying.

  • John W

    For Justified fans it would be smacking you across the head with a cast iron skillet.

    Not that I'm advocating or condoning it.

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    When you are old like me you think "the redhead on China Beach" not CSI

  • L.O.V.E.

    Oh, to be young again and having unholy thoughts about Marg and Dana Delaney.

  • Dave Dorris

    Those thoughts are still worth having. They're still looking good.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    If you consider faces botoxed to hell "good-looking".

  • Dave Dorris

    Whatever. You can hate. Sorry for you. I'm sure there are some youngsters you can still bag.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Nah. I prefer women who actually have facial expressions.

  • Guest

    And when ever anyone mentions China Beach or anything vaguely associated with it Colleen McMurphy is all I can think about.

  • BlackRabbit

    Doe he wear tennis shoes?
