What did you watch?
Debris (recorded) - "Earthshine" (ep. #5). Oddly, I can't find any
previous discussion on this episode.
I was about to say there was a dedicated thread, but I just realized
this was the episode from a couple of weeks ago.

Anyway, this is the first episode of this show that I would describe
as being "mostly OK", but that was largely because this one did away
with the horrid "science" and the grasping "human interest" stories, and
basically was a straight spy-vs-spy story.
In this one, Finola (who is passively-aggressively resenting Bryan,
after her discovery that he's keeping stuff from her in the previous
episode) and Bryan have to spring into action when terrorist(?) group
Influx tests some of their alien doohickey tech as a dress rehersal for
a bigger "attack" in Manhattan. Can Finola and Bryan stop Influx in
Unfortunately, the ending left a big dangling thread (though does
anyone really believe that Finola's dad is *not* the guy behind
That hadn't occurred to me. But now that you mention it, that does

maudlin "human interest" story garbage!... :/
Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist - "Zoey's Extraordinary Birthday" - This
was almost pure background noise.
This Is Us - "Both Things Can Be True" - In this episode, the Us Family
deal with various melodramatic events in their life. I was a little
confused by the final scene at the end. Were all of those women Kevin's
Kung Fu - Pilot episode - A young Chinese American woman gets fed up
with her overbearing mother trying to control her life so she moves to
China and spends three years of her life studying in a temple. One day
the temple is attacked by a mysterious group, and her Shifu is murdered
during the attack. One of the attackers also takes a magical sword.
Yes the sword has magic powers! Anyway upon realizing the Chinese
police are scared of the attackers she moves back home and tracks down
her boyfriend because her ex-boyfriend works for the SF DA's office, so
he can obviously help track down a mysterious gang in China. After
returning home she also has to deal with family melodrama including her
mom and brother who both resent her for moving away. And her dad who
got caught up with a loan shark. This was just barely above background
noise. I found myself constantly rewinding scenes because I wasn't
paying attention. I am curious if this show will crossover with the
Arrowverse since it has the same producer.
