If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/21/15

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!

Jenny’s Choice

criminalminds121smallI admit that I am not as big a fan of—or as loyal a viewer of—Criminal Minds as I used to be. Most of that has nothing to do with the cases but has everything to do with the way the writers have treated Morgan and Garcia. It angers me when I look back at the first three seasons or so and compare them to now. It’s like in the beginning, they were thinking that at some point, they were going to get them together as a couple, but later on, they decided that wasn’t a good idea and they backed off how they are together. I even read several things a while back that said Morgan and Garcia’s relationship was that of a brother and sister. I’m sorry, but I have a brother, and there’s no way in the world I would say the things to my brother that those two characters say to one another. That would just be creepy. So now, I tend to skip an episode if I know Morgan’s girlfriend or Garcia’s boyfriend (I’m not even sure she has one…??) are going to be on. And that pisses me off.

That being said, I still enjoy the show when I do watch it—and I love having Jennifer Love Hewitt back on my TV weekly—and last week was no exception. I actually missed (or maybe I just don’t remember??) the episode(s) when JJ was tortured, so I learned about it all for the first time. It was hard to watch. And the case last week cruel, with the people being frozen to death by the sicko. I was so happy when the father and son were reunited and the little boy realized who the man was and threw himself into his dad’s arms. I hope JJ can get the help she needs. Poor Spencer, in the unenviable position of knowing something is very wrong but stuck because he promised his friend he wouldn’t say anything.

On tonight’s episode, “Anonymous,” which was directed by series star Joe Mantegna, the BAU searches Tallahassee for a serial killer who calls the authorities to report the crimes prior to committing murder. Also, as Rossi prepares for a weekend visit with his daughter, Joy, he receives startling news about the death of a comrade in Vietnam.

Find out how the team catches the killer tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Melissa & Joey, The Mentalist, Law & Order: SVU, Top Chef, Best New Restaurant, Chicago PD, Hot in Cleveland, Wahlburgers, Donnie Loves Jenny, & The Exes.

chicagopd121smallWhat an intense ride it’s been on Chicago PD so far this season. I cannot wait to see where else it takes us this week. Last week, we watched as Lindsay started her new position with the DEA, but she had a hard time adjusting to their hands-off approach with the victims because she has always gotten so involved with the personal side of things. She isn’t really in it for the big press conferences but more for saving the people. Halstead made his move on Lindsay, and by the end of the episode, she showed up at his apartment, which led to an incredibly hot scene of them making out and heading towards the bedroom—I was so happy because I’ve wanted them to get together since the pilot. Besides these two hooking up, we also got some more great scenes of Ruzek showing his love for Burgess, including telling her he loved her right in the precinct. Burgess decided to turn Voight down and stay in uniform until her partner can move past the shooting as well. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed, but perhaps they’re leaving the position open because Lindsay will be coming back sooner than later. Regardless of where they go with any of the characters, I’m in it for the long haul because they just keep bringing the character growth as well as fantastic story arcs.

On tonight’s episode, “Disco Bob,” Bob Ruzek (guest star Jack Coleman) is the first to arrive on the scene of a double murder. Intelligence arrives to take over the investigation, and tensions arise as Bob needs to hand over the case to his son and Voigh. Lindsay’s new gig has her planning a trip to Bolivia for an undercover investigation that could be for an extended amount of time. Burgess and Roman realize they need to put past events behind them so it doesn’t jeopardize them going forward.

To see what Ruzek’s father is like, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, The 100, The Mentalist, Wahlburgers, and Donnie Loves Jenny.

americanhorrorstory121smallTonight, American Horror Story: Freak Show pulls up stakes and has its final curtain call. It’s a wonder that there are any characters left at the rate that they’ve been killed off this season! Last week, the freaks finally got their revenge on Stanley for selling their friends to the museum by turning him into a new Meep. Meanwhile, Chester performed the saw-a-woman-in-half routine on Maggie but actually sliced her in two with the rest of the troupe looking on in horror as her guts spilled onto the stage. Later, Chester broke down and stabbed his dummy Marjorie violently for making him a killer. He then tried to turn himself in to the police, confessing to Marjorie’s murder, but needless to say they were quite confused.

Elsa feared she was next on the freaks’ hit list, so she decided it was time to go and sold the show to Dandy, who was thrilled to finally be in show business. Elsewhere, Jimmy got new wooden claws from the same plastic surgeon who reconstructed Elsa’s legs after she was tortured and mutilated by Dr. Hans Gruber (who will later become Dr. Arden in AHS: Asylum).

Will Elsa get away, or will the freaks catch up to her and make her pay for her role in the death of their friends? How will Chester and Dandy resolve the fact that Elsa seems to have sold the show to both of them? And now that Jimmy has his new claws, will he rise up and try to take ownership of the show himself? Will Dandy finally pay for all the murders he committed? I’m assuming a few more freaks will die before the night is over—who will survive, who won’t, and what kind of clues will we get as to next season’s theme?

On tonight’s episode, “Curtain Call,” the freaks rebel in the Season 4 finale. Meanwhile, Dandy prepares for his debut performance.

See how the season ends and who is left standing tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Mentalist, Criminal Minds, Empire, Arrow, The 100, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, Man Seeking Woman, Top Chef, Hindsight, and Workaholics.
