If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/6/15

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!

hawaiifiveo36smallLast week’s Hawaii Five-0 was a strong ep for Steve & Danny, while the other cast members seemed to barely show up at all. When a jewelry store was robbed and the security guard—a retired cop—was killed, Five-0 began investigating. They quickly realized the killer had been shot by his partner in crime, and they put her under surveillance by staking out an apartment across the way from hers. The old woman who lived there was on vacation. As they kept an eye on the partner, they had visits from a drug-dealer neighbor and the sweetest old lady who ended up with an adorable story line with Jerry about a missing ficus tree. Jon Lovitz played a kookie pawn shop owner who was in on it but ended up helping them. Turned out the jewelry store owner was part of it all along. The original robber survived, only to play Terminator and come with (stolen) guns blazing, decked out in all the riot gear and Kevlar he could wear, to kill the jewelry store owner, shooting up cops left & right in the process. In the end, Kono tricked him and took him down.

The other part of the episode that was great was Steve and Danny going to couples therapy again. I loved how Steve gave up a tiny bit of control by letting Danny drive (his own car! LOL) after Danny bought him a guitar since Steve admitted to having played one when he was young but stopping when he got stage fright at the talent show.

On tonight’s episode, “Pono Kaulike (Justice for All),” McGarrett enlists Joe’s help after Danny and Chin are arrested for deadly past transgressions. Terry O’Quinn & Jimmy Buffett guest star.

To see if Danny and Chin can get out from under their murder (& more?) charges, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Amazing Race, King of the Nerds, & Blue Bloods.

theamazingracesmallThe Amazing Race has been off to a great start in this new season. I have been really enjoying it and have been totally surprised by how well the blind-date teams have been doing! Last week the teams raced across Japan, and once again blind-dating lawyers Jelani & Jenny came in first place. And also, for the second leg in a row, CJ and Lebya were a complete disaster—they somehow managed to miss their train while taking a selfie! (The Selfie Cam is one of this season’s additions that I could really do without!) However, this time CJ and Lebya didn’t have another team behind them to save them. I was thrilled to see them go—they really should have gone last week!

The one person in this year’s race I feel really bad for is surgeon Blair—he puts on a fake smile and tries to pretend he’s happy about his blind-date partner, pediatric RN Hayley, but she’s high-maintenance and not the brightest person. I’m actually kind of rooting for them to win, just because if they do, he totally deserves it. But on the other hand, if they were eliminated, he would be put out of his misery!

I look forward to seeing how the rest of the race plays out—what kinds of challenges the teams will face, what exotic locations they will head to, and if any of these blind daters will find a love connection.

On tonight’s episode, “#MurphysLaw (Phuket, Thailand),” the race continues in Phuket, Thailand, where one team forgets their fanny pack, which puts them behind. Later, one racer celebrates the end of a leg by popping a very special question.

Find out which team pops the question and if a forgotten fanny pack means the end of the race for another on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Glee, King of the Nerds, 12 Monkeys, Helix, and Banshee.
