Welcome to Rants and Raves! Tonight, the CW premiered its newest, most ridiculous(ly cute) show and Castle went full-on science fiction while Dancing with the Stars switched up partners to very entertaining results. As usual, we've got opinions, so join us as we break down tonight's TV!  

RAVE: Castle: One of Castle's insane theories actually came true?! We were just about as excited as he was to discover that there actually was an invisible man, or at least a man wearing an invisibility suit. Best episode in a long time.

RAVE: Dancing with the Stars: Partner switch-up time is the best, mostly because we get to watch the playfully scripted (and adorable) competitive banter and adventure montages. There's also dancing. That's fun too.  

RAVE: The Originals: We love everything happening here so much that we can't even find anything specific to rave about. Things are about to get even more interesting now that the whole original family is back together, in a way. (Also: we are so glad Daniel Sharman is on this show, and English. So glad.)

RAVE: Jane the Virgin: The premise? Ridiculous. The show? Sweet, funny, and deserving of a spot on our DVRs.

RAVE: The Big Bang Theory: We could listen to those nerds hilariously argue about movies – especially Back to the Future movies – for hours. Ok, maybe not hours, but 22 minutes, at least.

RANT/RAVE: The Voice: It's Battle Rounds time! We'd love it, if we had ever seen more than three minutes to get attached to any contestants.   

RANT: Gotham: We like the overarching storylines, but we just can't find it in ourselves to care about the weekly evildoers. The long-term villains, like Fish and Copplepot, are way more interesting.

RAVE: Sleepy Hollow: Ichabod learned to drive, drank a cappuccino, and showed off his ancient scary flute-playing skills. Is there anything this 18th century dreamboat can't do?

RANT: Sleepy Hollow: If this show doesn't want us to ship Abbie and Ichabod, Abbie and Ichabod need to stop flirting up a storm. Our little shipper hearts are fragile!  

RANT: The Blacklist: At this point, if Red isn't Liz's dad, whatever secret he actually has is going to have to be seriously earth-shattering, or we're gonna be real disappointed.

What did you watch tonight? Rant and rave with us in the comments!
