If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/5/15

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!

gotham15smallTonight, Gotham finally returns from a 6-week break. When we were last in the city, a group of would-be assassins made their way into Wayne Manor—while Alfred confronted the assailants, Selina and Bruce escaped out the back. Elsewhere, Falcone threatened Cobblepot to identify the mole in his organization and later executed one of his men in front of Fish and the other bosses as a show of force. Meanwhile, Dent admitted to Gordon that he leaked the information about Selina being a witness. Gordon confronted Lovecraft—who ordered the hit—but as he was in the middle of telling Gordon that the Wayne killings were just a small part of a much bigger conspiracy, he was killed by an assassin. Gordon was blamed for allowing the murder to happen and was demoted from police detective to security guard at Arkham Asylum.

Someone seems to have it in for Gordon—first he was basically handed over to armed assailants inside the precinct, and now this. Is this all part of the larger conspiracy hinted at in the last episode? Who is behind all of this? How and when will Gordon get his old job back? Or will he find a way to use this new position to investigate what’s really going on in Gotham?

On tonight’s episode, “Rogues’ Gallery,” a guard is murdered at Arkham Asylum as Det. Gordon begins his assignment there. Meanwhile, Cobblepot continues to build his army. Morena Baccarin, Drew Powell, Allyce Beasley, David Zayas, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Christopher Heyerdahl, & Kyle Massey guest star.

See if Det. Gordon can solve the guard’s murder tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording State of Affairs, Sleepy Hollow, and Major Crimes.

ncisla15smallIf you’re a fan of NCIS: LA, you had to have enjoyed the winter finale, right? The case was good, but the character interaction and growth was nothing short of brilliant. Let’s talk case first: Three Santas robbed a cyber-security company. Two got away, while one was captured after taking a woman—who turned out to be Callen’s girlfriend, Joelle—hostage. He then attacked the policeman driving him to the boatshed and escaped. The team figured out that a single file had been stolen in the robbery—a virus that could have dire consequences if released. The team figured out the really bad dude (because the others were more…penny-ante thieves) had hidden the flash drive somewhere on Joelle. Callen found the drive, but then the really bad guy showed up with two friends, and he had to try to keep her occupied while Kensi and Deeks took down the bad guys. Unfortunately, they were only able to get one of them before the others broke into the house and started shooting up the place. Callen ran with Joelle, who knew something was different about Callen when he pulled out a gun and shot one of the men. After a gunfight and then fistfight, Joelle finally learned that Callen wasn’t exactly who he’d said he was.

That brings us to the personal side of things. “Humbug” gave us everything: Sam and his family, Callen and Joelle (who told Callen to leave but then showed up at the end, saying she wanted to get to know the real G. Callen), Nell and Eric (who were TOO cute as she broke their movie date, only to ask him to go home with her to meet her family), and even Hetty and Granger… Everyone on the team had a special, fun moment, but none more so than Kensi and Deeks. After several long years of flirtation, their “thing,” his torture, her months in Afghanistan, metaphors, games, and everything else they’ve (and we’ve) had to deal with, Kensi finally admitted to Deeks that she wanted to be bold instead of playing it safe like they’d been, but she wanted to be bold with him. The chips are on the table, they’re all in, and they kissed—twice—right out there in the open. I literally squealed—SQUEALED—when I watched it the first time (and I say first time because honestly, I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve now watched that scene).

It honestly couldn’t have been a more perfect episode. Nell and Eric took a big step forward in their non-relationship relationship, we got to see Sam and his entire family, Callen doesn’t have to hide who he really is from Joelle anymore and it looks like she decided to give him a real chance, Granger’s back after recovering from being poisoned and he and Hetty had a fun little moment, and Kensi and Deeks are truly a couple. It was indeed the perfect Christmas present for those of us who’ve been fans of the show for six seasons. I can’t wait to see where we go from here.

On tonight’s episode, “Spiral,” while Callen is undercover in the mail room of an office building to investigate an arms dealer, it is taken over by terrorists and Callen becomes a hostage. When the team arrives to help, they discover the entire building is wired with explosives.

To see how the team saves Callen and stops the terrorists, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Major Crimes, Scorpion, Tiny House Nation, & Best. Ever.
