If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/13/15

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!

kotn2015smallTonight, the third season of King of the Nerds comes to an end and a new King (or Queen) will sit atop the Throne of Games. Last week, the six remaining nerds were put into alien cocoons and had to answer general nerd trivia questions and got shot in the face with “acid” when they got a question wrong. The game was a double-elimination, and the last nerd standing got immunity from the Nerd-Off. However, in a twist that wasn’t revealed until after-the-fact, one of the two contestants who eliminated from the trivia first would go home immediately. As a result, Amanda was sent home and Ben got the immunity—and the choice of one of the Nerd-Off contestants.

In the throne room, Ben announced that he would be sending Raychelle, and the others voted to send Lily. The two girls played a giant game of Pocket Nerds (aka Stratego), and it looked like Raychelle was going to win, until she accidentally moved the wrong piece. This left the door open for Lily to make a Hail Mary run for her opponent’s flag, causing Raychelle to be sent home.

So the final four are Ben, Jonathan, Kaitlin, and Lily. Out of that group, the only person I don’t want to win is Lily, and I would prefer that Jonathan or Kaitlin win over Ben. I think Jonathan has done a good job at plotting and planning his way to the end, and Kaitlin—who came off as obnoxious and arrogant in the premiere—has really grown on me. Overall, it’s been another really fun season, and it’s sad to see it come to an end, but I’m looking forward to seeing what lies in store for tonight’s final challenges.

On tonight’s episode, “The Nerdtastic Finale,” the winning nerd is crowned in the Season 3 finale, which comes complete with a witty monster and a gauntlet of geeky tests and schemes.

See who comes out on top tonight on TBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, Cristela, Glee, 12 Monkeys, and Helix.

hawaiifiveo313smallHawaii Five-0 was incredibly good last week, and a lot of stories came to a conclusion, while new ones started. Danny was arrested by the US Marshals for the murder of Marco Reyes, and they exported him to Columbia after he allowed them to because the marshal inadvertently threatened Grace and Steve. Meanwhile, Chin was also arrested, but it was Coughlin who arrested him with the charge of conspiracy to commit murder because he got the money for Danny that he took to Reyes. Coughlin had Gabriel (Chin’s brother-in-law), in a safe house and was using him to fry Chin—unfortunately for Coughlin, Gabriel set him up. When Coughlin brought the agreement for him to sign, Gabriel used the pen to stab Coughlin in the eye, killing him, and then he escaped. With Gabriel gone and Coughlin dead, Chin was let out of jail. The rest of the team and Joe headed to Columbia to find the missing drugs the CIA was looking for but returned with some other interesting stuff. Turned out that the US Marshal, Sam, was on Reyes’s payroll, and he was worried about getting his cut. Steve and Joe burned the coke and videotaped it, which they later used to make Sam cooperate. Danny was freed, and Sam stepped down from his job. In the end, everything was made right. Danny told Steve that he felt like he deserved to be punished for what he did, and Steve comforted him. It was a very emotional and exciting episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Kahania (Close Shave),” McGarrett and Odell come under siege in Odell’s barbershop when they try to protect a young man who is being hunted down by a gang. Also, Jerry is wrongfully accused of committing a series of home invasions. Michael Imperioli guest stars.

To see if the team can come to Steve’s assistance and prove Jerry’s innocence, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Amazing Race, 12 Monkeys, Blue Bloods, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, and Glee.
