I Bet Jane Just Lost Her Train of Thought Right There
Gotham on Fox at 8:00pm ET.
Jane the Virgin on The CW at 9:00pm ET. So far I’m finding this show really charming, and I’m enjoying having a main character to root for who is a genuinely nice person and yet not a ridiculous caricature or a push-over. The plot is totally ridiculous, but it based on a telenovela so that’s not so much a surprise as an indication that it meets and exceeds certain genre-specific expectations. Also Justin Baldoni is still looking pretty good, even if his acting ability continues to exist on a limited spectrum between “bemused” and “annoyed.”
Mr.Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown on HBO at 9:00pm ET. 120 minute special presentation.
Castle on ABC at 10:01pm ET.
Mike Tyson Mysteries on Adult Swim at 10:30pm ET. Series premiere. Turns out that TLC, home of the modern day freak show, has slightly better sense when it comes to giving convicted sex offenders a public forum than Adult Swim. Who would have guessed?
