If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/9/15

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!

Kyle’s Choice

glee19smallLove or hate it, Glee is back for one final 13-episode season, and it kicks off with a two-hour premiere tonight! Last season, Mercedes broke up with Sam after she realized she could be holding him back; Blaine killed his performance for the showcase, and it looked like he and Kurt would have a promising future together; and Rachel completed her script for the “Untitled Rachel Berry Project.” By the end of the season, all of our New York City characters disbanded, each going his or her separate ways, agreeing to reunite in 6 months.

This show has certainly lost a lot of its luster over the past few seasons, but since I’ve already been with it this far, I’m certainly sticking with it until the end. I’m cautiously optimistic they may be able to turn things around in these final 13 episodes. Hopefully with the introduction of some new characters and a return to its glee-club roots, the series can find that magic it first had when the show premiered. It will be interesting to see how they wrap everything up, knowing that this is the final season.

On tonight’s episode, “Loser Like Me; Homecoming,” Rachel returns to Lima after her TV failure and discovers that Sue has banished arts at the high school, which Rachel sets out to rectify. Meanwhile, Puck, Quinn, Santana, Artie, Mercedes, Brittany, and Tina show up at McKinley for Homecoming and decide to pitch in and help Rachel recruit members for the resurrected glee club.

Check out the beginning of the final season tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Undercover Boss, Cristela, Banshee, and Newsreaders.

Jenny’s Choice

hawaiifiveo19smallIt’s been a big season so far for Hawaii Five-0. Jerry was kidnapped and could’ve been killed, and then his mom moved so he’s staying with Chin. Steve met a woman his dad met when she was a young girl, and they have some definite chemistry, although last week, she was talking about setting him up with a friend of hers, so who knows what will happen there. Steve and Danny stole a Christmas tree and rescued a horse just before he was killed. Max made peace with a rival, another medical examiner, who used to be his friend. Aunt Deb got married. And the show celebrated 100 episodes by having Steve kidnapped by Wo Fat, learning that his mother had taken Wo Fat in after she killed his father, only to have him taken away by Social Services when it was discovered she was raising him without authorization from the state. Steve and Wo Fat fought it out and Steve killed Wo Fat before the Chairman (I mean, Wo Fat) could kill him.

But one of my favorite parts so far this season is Adam and Kono. They’re too cute and sweet together, and his flower petals and breakfast and note last week definitely made me all sniffly. I really hope that doesn’t mean bad things are coming their way! They deserve to have a happy ending, considering Catherine basically broke up with Steve, Chin’s wife was murdered, and Danny is divorced… Kono & Adam deserve to be happy!

On tonight’s episode, “Ua ‘aihue/Stolen,” when a tourist is killed after unknowingly transporting a stolen Van Gogh, an undercover Kono and Chin enter the world of black market priceless art and are taken hostage. Also, McGarrett asks Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto to help train Kamekona to beat Chef Sam Choy in a shrimp cook-off. Also guest starring are Rebecca Mader & Willie Garson among others.

To see how Iron Chef Morimoto and Chef Sam Choy get along with Five-0, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, Cristela, Masters of Illusion, & Blue Bloods.
