If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/3/15

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

hawaiifiveo43smallIt’s been three weeks since the last new episode of Hawaii Five-0 (what is UP with the random breaks this second half of the season for so many shows?), and it was a great one. Steve was at Odell’s barbershop getting a haircut and old-fashioned shave, when a young man, bleeding from a gunshot wound, came stumbling in. They tried to stop the bleeding and Steve had to hold the bad guys off without his gun, which he’d left in his car, when they came to get the bleeding guy. There was a lot of action, a lot of bullets flying, and in the end, Steve figured out who was gunning for the kid. But it turned out the young guy was the bad guy’s son, and the father had figured out that his son was responsible for a good number of children going missing — he’d been kidnapping…and doing whatever else to…them for a while. He was trying to stop his son the only way he knew how without turning him in to the police. Seeing Steve break down was heartbreaking. Meanwhile, Jerry was accused of a string of home invasions, but Chin helped track down the guy who’d really been doing it. Jerry was hysterical as he freaked out over being in lockup for just a few hours. Overall, it was really a great episode — one of my favorite in a while.

I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and again, it’s a killer, emotionally. Michelle Hurd is back as Grover’s wife — and for a much bigger role this time. Also guest starring are Mykelti Williamson (Justified, 24, Boomtown, The Fugitive, & tons more) and Kim Wayans (Reckless, In Living Color). It’s really a terrific episode, and Grover absolutely shines.

On tonight’s episode, “’Ike Hanau,” when Grover’s oldest and closest friend tells him he witnessed his wife fall off a cliff to her death, Grover’s gut instinct tells him that this was no accident. Also, Danny and Dr. Shaw get trapped in an elevator with a dead body in need of processing.

To see what Grover’s gut is telling him, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Amazing Race, Grimm, Last Man Standing, Cristela, Bride By Design, & Blue Bloods.

Kyle’s Choice

grimm43smallOn last week’s Grimm, Nick, Wu, and Hank investigated a string of murders that involved a woman picking up a man at a bar, taking him back to a hotel room, and then robbing and killing him with the assistance of her male partner. Monroe played guinea pig as the killer’s next target, and the guys soon discovered that they weren’t dealing with a team of killers but rather a Wesen who could transform between two different people — a man and a woman. Meanwhile, Juliette moved out of the house and asked Renard for a place to stay; Renard was waking from nightmares with his bullet wound scars appearing to gush blood and needed Juliette’s Hexenbiest blood to open his mother’s book of spells; and Adalind set out to find a father to pin her impending baby on.

This season of Grimm has been fantastic — I have not only really enjoyed the cases of the week but also the interesting character developments for Wu and Juliette. Wu quickly accepted his strange new world and has eagerly taken on his new role as a Wesen hunter. However, Juliette is still shocked by her own transformation. Will she find a way to accept what she has become and move forward with Nick? Can Nick truly love a Hexenbiest? What will the two of them do when they discover that Adalind is carrying Nick’s baby?! And what will the child of a Hexenbiest and a Grimm be like?

On tonight’s episode, “Heartbreaker,” the investigation into the death of a cyclist introduces Nick and Hank to a Wesen with a tragic fatal touch; another member of the Royal family shows up; at the same time, Capt. Renard and Adalind learn that efforts to find the missing child have intensified; and Juliette toys with the idea of embracing what she has become instead of fighting it.

See if Juliette comes to a decision tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

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