THE ORVILLE, MOM, LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT

THE ORVILLE: L-R: Seth MacFarlane, Halston Sage and Adrianne Palicki in the “Home” episode of THE ORVILLE airing Thursday, Jan. 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. ©2018 Fox Broadcasting Co. Cr: FOX

Let’s talk about Thursday night’s TV!

THE BIG BANG THEORY: I still don’t really get why Raj is so determined to get his former fiancee back. He seemed much more into most of his other love interests.

It’ll be interesting to see how far they go with Leonard potentially fathering Penny’s ex’s child. (Though I’m really glad they didn’t have a huge fight about it. Both had logical feelings toward the matter, but Penny was really respectful when she noted he didn’t have a say when she said she didn’t want kids, so she shouldn’t be able to stop him from doing this.)

THE ORVILLE: Well, it certainly seems like Alara is off the show. If that’s truly the end of her character on the series, at least she left on her own terms and to be with her family. (And after an hour devoted to her, which is a rarity on ensemble shows.)

MOM: Okay, no hug is that good. I kind of love that Bonnie accidentally prompted Adam’s only customer to clean up his act. But I also do really hope that Adam’s bar picks up more business. (And if it takes people being drawn in by the dog, I’ll take it.) So often, the group members stumbled a dozen times per win, and it would be nice if something THIS huge didn’t fail.

BROOKLYN NINE-NINE: Holt’s. Shirts. Oh my God. His depression was tough to watch, but those shirts were a hilarious juxtaposition. (Jake and Amy dressing up as each other’s fantasies was a perfect example of why these two are made for each other/one of the cutest nerdy couples on TV.)

It was great to see how far Terry would go to make sure he was living up to what Holt would want…only to realize that Holt implicitly trusted him. Awww. Thank you, NBC, for giving us more of this show.

FAM: Lying about your father being dead—no matter how awful he may be—is a reallllllllllllllllllllllllly bad move. Really, really bad move. I want better for the cast.

THE GOOD PLACE: It’s a hard task to follow arguably the best episode of the series, but I didn’t really like “The Book of Dougs.” It felt like both a really depressing episode and also a waste of a good amount of time. This close to the end of the season, if you’re going to have a quasi-bubble installment, it needs to be truly worth it; this felt like it was what should have been two or three scenes expanded into a full episode.

LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT: Mark Feuerstein is no stranger to playing bad guys (though his PRISON BREAK character played a long, long con and didn’t turn devilish until near the end), but this character was a grade-A creep. The CeCe/Sadie twist seemed obvious once CeCe was brought into the mix, but yikes. Just yikes.
