If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/17/15

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!

brooklyn99517smallLast week’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine was a lot of fun. I love seeing Jake work closely with Holt. And of course, throw Charles into the mix, and his bromance with Jake is always funny. Jake was positive from the beginning that the man’s murder had to do with the 21-million that had been stolen years before. In the end, he had the wrong bad guy pegged as the killer, but the motive was correct, and they caught the killer and recovered the money. Of course, that was what Madeline Wuntch wanted, as it gave her the excuse to “promote” Holt to head of the Public Relations Department — perfect for someone with Captain Holt’s effusive personality. *snort* In the B story, Rosa, Amy, & Gina helped Terry when a class from the magnet school Terry was trying to get his twins into came and visited the precinct. Although it didn’t go as smoothly as they would’ve liked, in the end, the kids learned a lot and Terry’s twins got off the wait list for the magnet school preschool.

Questions going into tonight’s season finale: Will we get any progress on the Jake/Amy front? Will Captain Holt’s “promotion” stick? I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and I could answer those for you, but I won’t. 😉 I will say it’s another great ep, so don’t miss it!

On tonight’s episode, “Johnny and Dora,” Jake and Amy go undercover to catch Brooklyn’s most notorious identity thief, and the case brings them closer together — very close. Meanwhile, the entire precinct is caught off-guard when one of their own says goodbye to the Nine-Nine. Kyra Sedgwick & Nick Cannon guest star.

To see what happens with Jake & Amy as well as who says goodbye, tune in to FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

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

madmen517smallTonight, it’s the end of a TV era, as Mad Men, the critically-acclaimed series that first put AMC on the map, finally comes to an end. The series has run for 8 years/7 seasons and has told the story of Don Draper and his fellow ad execs from 1960 through 1970. Last week, Don was still on his impromptu road trip out west, when he was pulled over and once again had to face his past as Korean War deserter Dick Whitman. He attended a gathering of veterans and was finally able to tell his story aloud. But when $500 went missing from their fundraiser, Don was accused of stealing the money, and they held his car as collateral. Don found the young hustler who stole the money and got his car back but then gave the vehicle to the kid and headed to the bus station. Meanwhile, Betty got some really bad news after she collapsed at her university — the doctor told her she had lung cancer and less than a year to live. While Betty tried to hide her condition and get on with her life, Henry told Sally the truth in hopes she would convince her mother to get treatment. Betty then gave Sally detailed instructions on what to do upon her death. Elsewhere, Pete and Trudy decided to give it another go after Pete got offered a new job with Learjet in Wichita.

So how will it all end tonight? Is Don finished with the ad business, and is he just going to ride off into the sunset? Will we get some kind of flash forward and find out what ultimately happens to Peggy, Joan, Roger, and the other folks back at the firm? Or are any of the wild Internet theories such as Don being D.B. Cooper or dying in the famous Wichita State University football team plane crash going to come true? I, like many others, am looking forward to seeing how it all ends tonight — and all of AMC’s sister networks (BBC America, IFC, Sundance,…) are also showing their solidarity for tonight’s series finale by airing a tribute called “We’re Watching Mad Men’s Finale” in the same timeslot!

On tonight’s episode, “Person to Person,” the stories of Don Draper, his family, and his coworkers come to an end in the series finale.

Don’t miss the 77-minute epic ending tonight on AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording American Odyssey, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, Veep, Nurse Jackie, and Penny Dreadful.
