September 11th's Weekly TV Thoughts

Legends of Tomorrow – Well, they did get it all in.  Kind of saw the ultimate resolution coming as soon as the wedding was interrupted part way through.  Not that it was bad, but it certainly was predictable.  Hopefully, they get a season that makes a bit more sense next year.  Definitely curious where they are going with the destroyed Waverider.  Had to laugh at the fake ending before that happened, too.

American Ninja Warrior – So happy Joe made it on his second try.  And thrilled for Jessie as well.  Some great teen finishes as well.  I’m shocked we didn’t get a split decision on stage 2, first time all season.  This seems like an easier stage two, too.  Fewer obstacles, possibly?  Don’t get me wrong, it still looks incredibly difficult, just not like in years past.  Of course, I wrote that as soon as we saw it, and the Ninjas proved it wasn’t as easy as it looked with only one of them making it to the end, and then only after using his safety pass.  Still, there were several close finishes.  Anxious to see how everyone does next week.

The Ultimate Surfer – I thought we were going to be done to the final two episodes next week, so I was shocked when I found out they were letting two people back in during Monday’s episode.  Not being a Bachelor/Bachelorette fan, I kind of skipped past the lessons.  Hard to believe who was sent home from the men.  That’s a strong competitor out.  I’m so tired of the petty bickering among the women.

Lego Masters – Not too surprised at who made it to the finals.  I would like to see what if the teams would have been the same had they not had the further from the wall part of the challenge.  Definitely loved the castle that won with the sagging bridge.  That was indeed epic.

Stargirl – I feel sorry for the art teacher.  At least he isn’t dead.  Does this mean they get a day off from summer school?  There’s a lot going on right now.  I hope it is all leading somewhere, but it feels like various pieces of unrelated puzzles at the moment.

Supergirl – And that right there is why I will not miss the show.  Yes, we need affordable housing.  I get that.  But that was a one-sided lecture.  Sorry, but not why I tune in to Supergirl.

What If…? – Considering I don’t care for zombie stories, I actually find this episode a little fun.  Depressing as could be with everyone dying, but Peter and Scott’s jokes made it better for me.

Family Game Fight – Laughed so much in the beginning.  Smiled through the second half.  Not much else to say about it, but it continues to be a fun show.

Holey Moley – The one guy who wanted to stay dry managed to do it on the second hole.  That was quite a distraction for the finale.  Not sure I could concentrate with all of that going on.

American Ninja Warrior Junior – Got to pay attention to this show with how well the teens are doing on the main show.  Clearly, the stars of tomorrow are running here.  I love how they have some unique obstacles here, at least for the youngest ages.  And kid designed, too.  Naturally, I was thrilled the Christmas ninja did as well as she did.  Surprised that Beckstrand didn’t do better considering his older brother, but if it is his thing, I’m sure it will come.  Or he’ll decide to find his own interest.

Frogger – Obstacle course based on a video I liked from the 80’s?  Of course I’m going to watch!  And what fun and creative courses they have.  Not sure we needed three episodes to be released right away, but I’ll definitely be back for more.
