If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/23/15

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

scorpion223smallI’m still really loving Scorpion—the characters and story lines are so much fun. Last time, Paige, Sylvester, Walter, & Cabe went undercover on a cruise ship—Paige & Sylvester as a couple and Walter & Cabe as their…well, baggage handler and trainer, basically—to find some rockets that were being transported and put some tracking on them. Unfortunately, things went sideways, and just when it looked dire, Sylvester stepped up and faced one of his major fears…and nearly paid for it with his life. In the end, of course, the good guys won. And it was Valentine’s Day, so Sylvester made a homemade valentine for Megan, while Walter hacked into one of the most popular, expensive restaurants to secure a reservation for him & Paige under the guise of a “work meeting.” Unfortunately, he met up with his ex on the cruise ship, and when she realized the feelings he had for Paige, she told him to make sure he was ready for a relationship before starting one with someone else, so he cancelled the dinner he had planned. It was pretty sad. On the other end of the spectrum, Happy and Toby have finally crossed some line in their relationship, and they held hands for a moment, when they took Ralph to give a special gift to the girl he has a crush on.

I’m glad they aren’t rushing the relationship between Paige & Walter, and that’s helped by the fact that Drew, Ralph’s father, is gone. Hopefully things will continue to progress and not stall!

On tonight’s episode, “Going South,” Team Scorpion heads to Mexico when a tech billionaire hires them to rescue his kidnapped daughter. Also, feelings are hurt after Walter gives an interview and fails to acknowledge the other members of the team. Camille Guaty guest stars.

Find out if the team can rescue the daughter tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 2 Broke Girls, Kids Baking Championship, Mike & Molly, Ellen’s Design Challenge, NCIS: LA, & Castle.

Megan’s Choice

ncisla223smallNCIS: LA has been on fire this season, and I’m loving not only the character growth but the great cases they’ve been covering. Sam and Callen were kidnapped at the beginning of the last episode, and the team had to work to track them down. It was a hard thing because they couldn’t even find their cell signals or anything. The partners managed to escape their cell and get outside, where they ran into another man, who claimed to be Martin Samir, the missing NSA analyst. Martin didn’t seem to be very believable, and Sam figured him out when Martin said something about where he worked. Sam knew that there was construction and the entrance he said he was at was actually closed. Callen and Sam pretended to believe him long enough to give Martin false information for his friends, which led them straight into a sting. The guys found the real Martin Samir, and they all managed to escape. The fake Martin was killed when he ran into the electric fence, which Sam turned back on just in time, making it easy for the guys. In the end, the team managed to save the day and the boys got back home. A win-win for everyone. I love how Deeks continues to be such a calming support for Kensi in times of stress—they are just so good together.

On tonight’s episode, “Expiration Date,” Callen and Sam are tasked with apprehending a spy contracted by the CIA. Sam is shot, and the team enlists the help of Thapa, the elite Nepali soldier from their past, to help find the shooter. Also, Kensi and Deeks have their first official argument.

To see if Sam survives, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Sleepy Hollow, Gotham, The Voice, Scorpion, and The Night Shift.

Kyle’s Choice

bettercallsaul223smallI didn’t think anything could ever live up to Breaking Bad, but the Better Call Saul prequel is doing a great job of proving me wrong. Last week, Jimmy tried to warn the Kettleman family that they could be in danger. However, they used this knowledge to stage their own kidnapping and hide out with their stolen millions. The police’s top suspect for the kidnapping was Nacho, and Jimmy was panicked that if Nacho was arrested, his own life could be in danger. So he made it his primary mission to prove that the Kettleman family had not actually been kidnapped. He was struggling until an enlightening discussion with Mike gave him and idea—he trekked out into the woods and found the family happily singing by a camp fire.

I am thoroughly enjoying this series. It has that same blend of tense drama and light comedy that makes for a pleasurable hour that just flies by. It makes great use of flashbacks and flash forwards to give pieces of a larger story that will play out over the course of the season/series. Plus, each episode always end in some kind of big reveal or cliffhanger that makes you anxious to see what happens next week. I am loving this relationship between Jimmy and Mike—and their constant battle over the stamps at the parking garage. Those scenes always leave me smiling. I can’t wait to see what happens next—when will Jimmy finally give in and help Nacho? And what other questionably-legal money-making scheme will he get up to next?

On tonight’s episode, “Hero,” Jimmy conjures up a bold plan to solicit new clients but has to face the consequences when the scheme strains his relationship with a rival firm.

Learn the consequences of Jimmy’s plan tonight on AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Castle, The Night Shift, Gotham, Sleepy Hollow, Chasing Life, and The Making of Dig.
