If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/17/15

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 #1

rizzoliandisles217smallMy first pick tonight is the winter premiere of Rizzoli & Isles. This season has been really rough. The team learned about Frost’s death and Jane was dealing with her pregnancy when she ended up losing the baby during a case gone bad. Meanwhile, Maura’s relationship with her professor boyfriend is really going well, and before the break, she met his 12-year-old daughter, which went well. Jane and the team are still reeling from Frost’s death, and things are up in the air with Angela, who quit her job and broke up with Cavanaugh to start fresh (sounds like a midlife crisis to me, but whatever…). It’ll be interesting to see how the last three episodes of the season go from here. (By the way… Why take a winter break and then have to come back for only three episodes?? Why not just finish airing them with the others??)

On tonight’s episode, “Bridge to Tomorrow,” after Jane jumps from a bridge to save a prosecutor suspected of his murdering his mistress, Maura is terrified that she has lost her best friend. The squad must now renew the search to find the real killer. Meanwhile, Angela enlists Frankie’s help as she applies to new jobs.

See how Jane survives jumping from the bridge tonight on TNT at 9/8c.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Megan’s Choice

choppedsmallnewTime and time again, I find myself drawn to watching cooking competition shows, even when there’s other television on, and Chopped is my greatest weakness. It’s possible that I’m addicted to watching any and all episodes of this show (including Chopped Canada), which is not something I’m ashamed of. Some of the greatest episodes have been when they’ve had stars competing for charity, because it’s very amusing to watch them out of their comfort zone and getting super competitive. Tonight is going to be one of those great episodes because we’re going to see some stars from our favorite reality shows battle it out in the kitchen for charity, including the fantastic Amy Roloff from Little People, Big World. I love her, but I think she’s going to struggle because her organizational skills have always been a little lacking.

On tonight’s episode, “Reality Stars,” Renee Graziano (Mob Wives), Travis Lofland (Deadliest Catch), Amy Roloff (Little People, Big World), and Kathy Wakile (Real Housewives of New Jersey) are ready for battle in the Chopped kitchen. They’ll have to tackle biscuit dough, vegetable cream cheese, and cherry pie filling if they’re going to take home $10,000 for their favorite charity.

To see how these Reality Stars do outside their comfort zones, tune in to Food Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording NCIS, NCIS: NOLA, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Chicago Fire, Fresh Off the Boat, The Mindy Project, and MasterChef: Junior.

Kyle’s Choice

repeataftermesmallTonight, ABC kicks off a new celebrity hidden camera comedy series inspired by a segment from the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Each episode of Repeat After Me finds host Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs) using an earpiece to tell celebrities what to say as they interact with everyday folks in some bizarre situations while hidden cameras catch all the hilarity. At the end of each episode, the studio audience votes for their favorite moment.

The ads for the series remind me of I Get That A Lot, which I always enjoy. Plus, it’s hosted by “Beverly Goldberg,” who I find absolutely hilarious! So I can’t wait to check this show out tonight!

The celebrity guests in tonight’s premiere include Scott Foley (Scandal, Felicity), Sarah Hyland (Modern Family), and Randy Jackson (American Idol).

Laugh along with the studio audience tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Fresh Off the Boat, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Parks and Recreation, Marry Me, About a Boy, MasterChef: Junior, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Cougar Town, Face Off, Schitt’s Creek, and Kroll Show.

Jenny’s Choice #2

ncis217smallMy second pick tonight is the new episode of NCIS. Last week, we went back to the military academy that Tony attended as a teenager. He was visibly shaken as he and Bishop pulled up to the academy. Over the course of the episode, it was interesting to see his past. He was a messed-up kid when he first got there, sent by his father, who didn’t even take him himself. I was glad to see that his mentor, the man who taught Tony his love of movie quotes, wasn’t the killer. That would’ve been heartbreaking. He wasn’t innocent, but he was no killer. Meanwhile, Bishop & Jake invited Tony, McGee, and Gibbs out to dinner to let them get to know Jake and vice versa. Unfortunately, Tony & Bishop were at the academy, so when McGee got to the diner and saw that it was only Gibbs and Jake, he turned around and left. It seemed like it was a good dinner, though, as Gibbs asked for Jake’s help with the Mishnev situation.

Gibbs is being rather stoic about Diane’s death, as he almost always is, but Fornell is having a very rough time with it, as we’ll see tonight. And some of that, I’m sure, has to do with their daughter, who is a young teenager. I’m looking forward to tonight’s emotional episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Cabin Fever,” the NCIS team suspects Gibbs’ arch-nemesis is behind an explosion at a summit for global terror event, but Gibbs elects to sit out the investigation in order to help a grief-stricken Fornell, whose life is on the verge of imploding following his ex-wife’s murder.

See if Gibbs can help Fornell tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 19 Kids & Counting, Fresh Off the Boat, MasterChef: Junior, NCIS: NOLA , Chicago Fire, Chopped, Our Little Family, Person of Interest, & Cougar Town.
