If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/24/15

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

ncis224smallLast week’s NCIS was focused on Sergei Mishnev after he was behind the explosion that killed one Marine at a summit for global terror event. But when Emily Fornell came to Gibbs, asking for his help with her father, Gibbs opted to sit out the case—sort of. He got Fornell out of jail when he was locked up after being caught on a DUI, and then he took him out to a remote cabin and basically performed an intervention. Vance and the team found out that Mishnev had it out for Gibbs so bad because he’d killed Ari, Ziva’s half-brother, who was also Mishnev’s half-brother, sharing a mother rather than a father like Ari and Ziva did. In the end, Gibbs set it up so Mishnev knew he was there, and with Russian Counselor Anton Pavlenko’s help, Mishnev went there on the assumption that the Russian government had sanctioned Gibbs’s murder. Gibbs was able to sneak up behind him and knock him unconscious, and when Mishnev came to, he was back on the road much like the one where Gibbs thought he’d killed him (It wasn’t clear to me… WAS it the same road? No matter…), and out of the glare of the headlights stepped Fornell, who shot him dead. This time, Gibbs took the time to make sure he was dead. (Thank goodness!)

I’m glad the Mishnev story line is done, and I hope now Fornell can find some peace, not only for himself but also for his daughter. I also really enjoyed seeing Pavlenko actually be a solid help for Gibbs, not an “is he or isn’t he a good guy” routine.

On tonight’s episode, “Blast From the Past,” a covert identity created for one of Gibbs’ undercover cases 20 years ago resurfaces after a murder victim is found living under the alias. Alan Dale guest stars.

See Gibbs go undercover in a very un-Gibbs-like role tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef: Junior, 19 Kids & Counting, Hotel Showdown, Married at First Sight: The First Year, NCIS: NOLA, Rizzoli & Isles, Chopped, Forever, Our Little Family, Person of Interest, Restaurant Startup, & Cougar Town.

parksandrec224smallSadly, tonight will be our last visit to the town of Pawnee, Indiana, as Parks and Recreation comes to an end. In last week’s first episode, we got to see an episode of Andy Dwyer’s crazy TV show, The Johnny Karate Super Awesome Musical Explosion Show. Then, we finally got to see the face of Pawnee’s longtime mayor, Walter Gunderson (Bill Murray!)—unfortunately, it was at his funeral. Ben had to assign an interim replacement, and after interviewing several horrible candidates, he was about to take the job himself to erase the mayoral mistakes of his past but eventually settled on Garry Gergich. Meanwhile, Leslie helped Tom prepare the perfect wedding proposal for Lucy; and Ron was distraught over the death of his longtime barber until Donna found him a worthy replacement.

Tonight, after six hilarious seasons (let’s just pretend that 6-episode first season never happened), the series sadly comes to a close. As we leave this delightful small town, so do many of its hilarious townsfolk—Donna and Joe are moving to Seattle, and Leslie and Ben and April and Andy are all headed for D.C. What kind of closure will we get? Will Ann and Chris, or any other favorite characters, pop up one last time? The Office did a great job wrapping things up in its finale, and I expect tonight’s Parks and Rec finale will be just as satisfying.

On tonight’s episode, “One Last Ride,” the Parks gang complete one last task together before saying so long to Pawnee when the series comes to an end after seven seasons.

To see how it all wraps up, tune in for the one-hour finale tonight to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Fresh Off the Boat, Repeat After Me, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Forever, MasterChef: Junior, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Switched at Birth, Justified, Cougar Town, Sirens, and Face Off.
