If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/4/15

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

worstcookssmallI love a good cooking competition series, and Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America is one of the best. It’s unbelievable how BAD some (most) of these cooks are each season. Anne Burrell is back, and this season, Tyler Florence (host of The Great Food Truck Race) is joining her in the mentor seat. I can’t wait to see how his teaching style differs from Anne’s. And based on the promos I’ve seen on TV recently, this season’s sure to be a lot of fun.

On tonight’s episode, “It Just Keeps Getting Worse,” Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence choose 14 contestants from an open call to bring back to Boot Camp, where the recruits prepare their signature dishes for the chefs; Anne and Tyler choose their recruits and teach them to create a romantic meal.

Check out the new recruits tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Galavant, The Great British Baking Show, Guy’s Grocery Games, The Librarians, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, CSI, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

brooklyn14smallI’m really looking forward to a new episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine after the small hiatus. This show brings me constant giggles and amusement because I never know where the writers are going to take us or what our favorite characters are up to. On the last episode, we watched as Jake and Charles went on stakeout together but swore that they could handle eight days without fighting. Let’s be honest… No one can spend eight straight days together in a small room together and not want to strangle the other person at one point or another. They learned this the hard way, and it resulted in them getting angry and saying some things to each other they wouldn’t usually say. After it was all said and done, they got sent back out together and realized that they could fight and still be best friends. Another interesting story line was Rosa starting a romance with Captain Holt’s nephew, played by guest star Nick Cannon. It was especially funny when she was doing the walk of shame the next morning and they invited her to stay for breakfast—incredibly amusing to watch Holt’s face during the whole thing.

On tonight’s episode, “Beach House,” Jake ruins a detectives-only getaway to Charles’s beach house by inviting Holt.

To see how it all unfolds, tune in to FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching Worst Cooks in America, Galavant, The Librarians, Guy’s Grocery Games, CSI, and The Good Wife.

galavant14smallTonight, ABC kicks off the 4-week musical-comedy event series, Galavant. Ever since his one true love, Madalena (Mallory Jansen, Young & Hungry) chose money and fame over him, Sir Galavant (Joshua Sasse, Rogue) has become a shell of the knight he once was. He has let himself go and often drinks himself to sleep at night. However, one day Princess Isabella (Karen David) arrives on his doorstep with a plea to help save her kingdom, and in doing so, it would also allow him to get revenge on the man who stole his one true love. So, joined by the princess and his trust squire Sid (Luke Youngblood, Community), Galavant sets out on a quest to get his revenge on the evil King Richard (Timothy Omundson, Psych).

I originally watched the pilot for the series last summer, and I am so excited that it is finally airing—this was easily my favorite of all of the new shows. This series comes from the creators of The Neighbors, who had previously worked with acclaimed Disney songwriter Alan Menken to produce a brilliant musical episode of that series. Now they have once again joined forces to produce this hilarious new show. From witty dialogue and fun sight gags to catchy songs with hilarious lyrics that will be stuck in your head all night, this show is a pure delight to watch. Not only is the primary cast excellent, but the supporting actors also add to the humor—Vinnie Jones is a lot of fun as Richard’s bodyguard, Sir Gareth, while Darren Evans (My Mad Fat Diary) is hilarious as the always-nervous chef.

On tonight’s first episode, “Pilot,” a princess offers Galavant a chance at redemption and to win his one true love back, but first he’s got to give up the booze and get himself back in fighting shape. Then, in “Joust Friends,” Galavant enters a jousting tournament to test his return to form, and King Richard tries to get Madalena to like him.

Catch the beginnings of this musical journey tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, CSI, Resurrection, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, Worst Cooks in America, and The Librarians.
