If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/15/15

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!

Kyle’s Choice

grimm515smallTonight, the fourth season of Grimm comes to a close, but fear not, there will be another spooky season coming in the fall. In the last few episodes, Juliette fully gave in to her evil Hexenbiest side. First she tried to turn Nick’s gun on Monroe, who managed to just narrowly avoid getting shot. And later, Juliette sent a fake distress message to Nick’s mother to lure her back in town with Adalind’s child. Once the trap was sprung, some men grabbed and killed Nick’s mother, leaving her head in a box, and took the child for the Royals. Meanwhile, the rest of the gang discovered that Renard was being possessed by Jack the Ripper, who had hitched a ride when he was being resurrected. However, they managed to kill the unwanted passenger without harming Renard. And Trubel made a surprise return to town at Monroe’s request.

Juliette is almost at the point of no redemption to me — I know she can’t control her actions, but she has become pure evil! I really hope they find a way to suppress/eliminate her Hexenbiest, but I suspect that may have to wait until next season. Will Nick (rightly) blame what happened to his mother on Juliette? How did that child get so big so fast, and will we see the birth of Adalind’s latest baby tonight? Why has Trubel returned to town, and is she back for good? It should be one exciting season finale tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Cry Havoc,” Trubel helps Nick, who is hell-bent on getting revenge on the Royals after making a horrifying discovery in the Season 4 finale; at the same time, Juliette’s alliance continues to lead her down a dark path.

See if Nick gets revenge and if Juliette gets any less evil tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race and Childrens Hospital.

Jenny’s Choice

theamazingracesmallTonight’s the season finale of The Amazing Race, and I’m excited to see how it’s going to play out. It’s been a fun race from the start. The “established couples” versus “blind dates” was a fun twist, and it’s actually been surprising how well the blind dates have done. A good number of the first bunch of eliminations were the established couples, and tonight, in the finale, it’s one established couple — Rochelle & Mike — and three blind-date couples — Blair & Hayley, Laura & Tyler, and Jelani & Jenny. Last week, I was very frustrated when Mike & Rochelle switched almost immediately from making bricks to dancing, since they’d done so poorly on the last dancing challenge! I was impressed this time that, though it took them a while, they didn’t give up. The clown challenge was too easy, in my opinion, but the bricks and dancing were fun. The bricks were pretty easy, as long as you actually watched how to do it. The hardest part of that one seemed to be the lonnnnnnnng trek to the delivery spot with the 12 dried & hardened bricks.

I’m not sure who I want to win tonight. Rochelle & Mike have worked hard to get to the finals, and I think they could probably use the money more than the others…but they don’t really play as well as the others. They’ve been lucky to get where they are a couple of times, but I like them. I love Laura & Tyler (they’re too cute together), and I don’t hate (but I don’t love) Jelani & Jenny together. But honestly, as much as I hated Blair & Hayley (okay, it was more that I hated Hayley… LOL), when they don’t argue and fight, they can kick ass. So honestly, I’m okay with them winning. *shrug* Whoever wins, it’ll be fun to watch!

On tonight’s episode, “Monster Truck Heroes,” with the $1 million dollar prize on the line, the final four teams race from Peru to Dallas, where they go to great heights at the top of AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys, join a Texas cattle ranch and rappel 500 feet down the Reunion Tower.

To see who takes home the prize, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Grimm & Whose Line Is It Anyway?.
