If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/3/15

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! (Thanks for hanging in while we took a break. Spending a week in the hospital is a week too long! I’m glad to be home!)

brooklyn9953smallLast week’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine was a lot of fun. Jake injured himself by falling as he ran across the top of cars (How in the world he injured himself as much as he did, I have no idea… LOL), and Terry tried to force him to take some time off since the doctor didn’t actually clear him, but Jake was determined to catch the bad guy, even to the detriment of his health. In the end, they did catch him and Jake was able to recover. Meanwhile, Holt and Rosa were forced to spend an evening with their significant others — although Rosa cut it short when she admitted to Holt that she was late and thought she might be pregnant. Talk about sharing personal information! Unfortunately, that shortened dinner meant Amy and Gina missed it completely after showing up late (as Amy tried to prove how “chill” she was).

I love this show. The chemistry between the characters is as great now as it’s been since the beginning, and I love them all. I’m hoping we’ll get some movement on the relationship between Jake & Amy as the season comes to a close in the next few weeks, but I guess we’ll see…

On tonight’s episode, “Det. Dave Majors,” Jake is excited to work a case with the best detective in the NYPD, Detective Majors (guest star Garret Dillahunt, Raising Hope), until Majors shares his intentions to ask Amy out on a date. Meanwhile, Charles and Gina try to convince Terry to stay at the Nine-Nine when he considers accepting an offer to work at a private security firm.

See how Jake reacts to Det. Majors’ interest in Amy tonight on FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Spring Baking Championship, Battle Creek, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

lastmanonearth53smallTonight, the first season of The Last Man on Earth comes to a close. Last week, new Phil continued to charm the group (well, everyone but old Phil, now known as Tandy), and when they took a revote of the presidential election, he won by a landslide. Todd got jealous of how much time Melissa was spending with Phil and tried to forbid her from hanging out with him. When she refused, he preemptively broke up with her — a move he instantly regretted. While each of the women tried to put the moves on Phil, it was Carol who seemed to catch his eyes and win him over with her humor.

Tandy was annoyed with all of the things Phil was able to accomplish around town, and so he claiming to have planted a garden. When Phil called his bluff, Tandy spent all night planting seeds in order to prove Phil wrong. The next evening, Phil and Carol could be heard loudly performing an elaborate roleplaying sex scenario. This was the last straw for Phil, who told Todd they needed to kill their latest resident, and Todd agreed.

So will these two actually kill Phil (or even attempt to)? And if they did somehow manage to do so, would that really make the situation any better for them? Would the women really love them if they became murderers? Or if they tried to make Phil’s death look like an accident, I don’t see Melissa falling for it. I have thoroughly enjoyed this first season — they’ve been giving us twisty episode endings all season long, so I can’t wait to see what kind of messed-up situation we are left with for the second season! Will anyone else arrive in Tucson?!

On tonight’s episode, “Screw the Moon,” Phil and Carol make peace in the Season 1 finale.

See if everyone is left alive tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time, American Odyssey, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, Veep, Nurse Jackie, Happyish, and Penny Dreadful.

madamsecretary53smallMadam Secretary has had a pretty action-packed first season, with everything from romance to Bess’s best friend being a spy. What a crazy ride it’s been so far, but last week was by far the most amazing acting by Tea Leoni, which is saying a lot because she’s usually quite incredible…but last episode in her therapy session, she was just so open and raw. It was very moving to watch. Bess blames herself for not knowing that Juliet was a traitor and wonders why Juliet killed George. The rest of the episode bounced around between Juliet and the Iranian president Shiraz, who was there to sign a treaty but who had struck a nerve with people because back in Iran, a man was ordered to be executed for being gay. That didn’t sit well with many people, but after Jay had a chat with the guy from HRC, he realized that they were really just walking on eggshells to avoid causing issues before the signing. Unfortunately, even after they devised a plan to negotiate the man’s freedom, Shiraz refused and the man was executed. On the Juliet front, she was eventually captured, and we were left hanging when Bess was asked to question her. The finale is bound to be epic.

On tonight’s episode, “There but for the Grace of God,” season 1 ends with Elizabeth recalling turning down a job offer by then-CIA Director Dalton that would have changed the course of her life; at the same time, she confronts a former friend. Elsewhere, Stevie and Harrison begin a relationship that will have consequences.

To see what unfolds in this finale, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Cutthroat Kitchen, Guy’s Grocery Games, Once Upon a Time, Game of Thrones, Spring Baking Championship, Penny Dreadful, Secrets and Lies, and The Last Man on Earth.
