If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/20/15

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 #1

svu520smallTonight is the season finale of Law & Order: SVU, and it takes us back to previous episode(s) this season, which I kind of love. In one episode, police found children who’d been “adopted” (illegally) for child pornography. Olivia fell hard for a baby boy she found. The boy’s mother was a drug addict and prostitute who was then killed in a later episode. Olivia kept in contact with Noah and eventually fostered him and has now adopted him — even though she found out just beforehand that Noah’s father was the man behind a prostitution and sex trafficking ring. She asked Barba (who is one of my favorite characters on the show) if that knowledge had to come out at the time, and he said it had no bearing on the case she was talking about, so no. Unfortunately, it comes out tonight in what should be an emotional season finale.

On tonight’s episode, “Surrendering Noah,” Sgt. Benson and ADA Barba take Johnny D (guest star Charles Halford) to trial for sex trafficking, rape, assault, and kidnapping. But when Baby Noah’s adoption becomes entangled in the case, Benson fears for Noah’s future and his safety. In an intense courtroom showdown, the SVU will face a threat that could change the squad forever.

See what happens in court tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

Kyle’s Choice

survivorswasmallTonight, another season of Survivor comes to a close with its usual 3-hour finale/reunion event. Last week, the remaining castaways were split into two teams for the reward challenge, where they had to unscramble a puzzle to form the sentence “a reward with all the fixin’s.” It took the contestants so long that Jeff finally resorted to giving them clues! Mike, Will, and Carolyn won the reward, while Rodney, Dan, and Sierra got nothing. And once again, Rodney went on a guilt trip trying to get Carolyn or one of the others to give him their reward! No one budged, and the three winners went off on their surf-and-turf helicopter ride while the losers went back to the camp and found some fruit.

Mike won the immunity challenge once again, and once again he messed up the plans of the others to vote him out. So they started scrambling to figure out what to do. Dan, with his mystery power, seemed like the logical choice, but Carolyn’s name also came up. At the vote, Dan used his secret power to cast an additional vote for Carolyn, but Carolyn pulled out her immunity idol and sent Dan packing.

While I don’t like any of the people who are left (especially Rodney), this seems like it is Mike’s game to lose. If he can manage to keep winning immunity and get to the final 3, the jury loves him and will most likely give him their votes. However, both Mike and Carolyn are up for next season’s “Second Chance” vote — so does that mean neither of them won this season? Or could one of them be the sole previous winner on next season’s cast? I’m assuming, in addition to announcing this season’s winner, we will also find out the cast of season 31 tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “It’s a Fickle, Fickle Game,” season 30 ends with the final castaways receiving a surprise visit from their loved ones. Later, they are interviewed by the jury, who then vote for the winner.

Find out who takes home the cash tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording 500 Questions, Modern Family, black-ish, Celebrity Wife Swap, MasterChef, Supernatural, Young & Hungry, and Big Time in Hollywood, FL.

Jenny’s Choice #2

chicagopd520smallMy second pick tonight is Chicago PD. Last week, a mass shooting at an athletic club had Intelligence racing around trying to find the shooters and figure out the motive. I totally called the motive after hearing some of the info. Family members and friends getting revenge on a company that was responsible for a little girl’s death in a small town where their factory or whatever was located. Not a new story line for TV or books I’ve read, but an effective one. They eventually stopped the guys, killing several of them. Atwater is back on patrol still after screwing up with a suspect in interview, leaving a can in the room which allowed him to slice his own throat. So he’s still adjusting to being back on patrol while Burgess is enjoying Intelligence. I didn’t like Adam basically talking down to her, telling her not to get comfortable, that Atwater would be back. Kind of rude and not very supporting, especially when talking to his girlfriend.

Meanwhile…Erin is spiraling hard and fast after Nadia’s death, choosing to drink heavily at the bar her mother works at (her mother is a piece of work…), have sex with a childhood acquaintance her mother reintroduced her to, and (I think… It was hard to see clearly) eyeing drugs. Tonight’s finale is going to show her spiraling even further. Voight will confront her about it, I’m sure. I wish Jay would step up and confront her as well and force her to talk about it.

On tonight’s episode, “Born Into Bad News,” retired Commander Perry (guest star Robert Ray Wisdom) enlists Voight and the team to help extract his cop nephew from a unit of corrupt officers who are robbing drug dealers. When things go bad, Voight must take down a younger, more violent version of himself. Meanwhile, Lindsay struggles to stay clean. At the same time, a woman from Olinsky’s past reaches out to him.

To see if Lindsay can make the right decision and what the woman from Olinsky’s past wants, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 500 Questions, MasterChef, The Mysteries of Laura, Young & Hungry, Modern Family, black-ish, Hot in Cleveland, Mystery Diners, & The Soul Man.
