If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/8/15

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

brooklyn9938smallLast week, it was finally time for the Boyle-Linetti wedding on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and while I wish it had been Charles & Gina getting married (they’re too funny together!), we got to watch the craziness that led up to his father and her mother finally exchanging vows. They had to contend with Jake & Amy catching a bad guy and getting dirty and losing the ring in the process, only to find it yet then get it stuck on Jake’s finger. Also, Charles’s dad freaked out and decided he had crap decision-making skills so he almost didn’t go through with the wedding. In the end, though, it was a fun, sweet moment with a fairly awkward kiss, and it was well worth the wait and the build up to the wedding day we’ve waited for all season.

On tonight’s episode, “Captain Peralta,” Jake’s mainly absentee father, Roger (guest star Bradley Whitford, The West Wing, Trophy Wife), comes to town to spend some time with his son. Jake can’t wait to see him, but Charles is skeptical of Roger’s intentions. Meanwhile, Holt tasks Amy, Terry, Gina, and Rosa with an impossible brain teaser in exchange for Beyoncé tickets.

To see which of the four takes home the tickets—if any—tune in to FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, All-Star Academy, The Last Man on Earth, Battle Creek, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

thewalkingdead38smallLast week on The Walking Dead, Rick and the gang entered Alexandria and had to check their weapons at the door. They met the woman in charge, Congresswoman Deanna, who interviewed each of them on tape and assigned them jobs. Even though it seemed like Alexandria was a perfect paradise, our survivors didn’t feel comfortable letting their guard down and decided to all stick together in the same house. They also didn’t want to lose their edge and become weak.

Rick finally shaved off that awful beard and got a haircut from one of the local women—a possible love interest? (Though her husband would need to somehow disappear…) Deanna put Rick in charge of security, and while he pretended to tow the party line, he told the others in his group that they should be ready to take Alexandria by force if need be. Carol had also been playing Deanna and the townsfolk from the moment she arrived—acting like a bumbling, helpless housewife who missed her loving deceased husband. Meanwhile, Carl met some other kids and had some trouble fitting in, but Enid seemed to catch his eye. (Looks like love may be in the air for the Grimes guys!)

Last week was the first really good episode we’ve had since the show returned. Things at Alexandria are way too good, and that never lasts. Can these people really be trusted? What are they hiding, or what kind of outside threat awaits the town? Maybe those three people Deanna said she exiled will they try to return to the village?

On tonight’s episode, “Forget,” Rick and the group continue to acclimate to their new surroundings.

See if there are any surprises with the new town tonight on AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, Togetherness, Looking, Shameless, and Episodes.
