If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/8/15

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!

majorcrimes68smallTonight’s the season premiere of Major Crimes, and I’m so excited, given how last season ended. Phillip Stroh was back and in the process of signing a plea agreement, in which he would give up the names and locations of other victims, but I knew from the beginning of that story arc that something was hinky. The judge who was presiding over it was an old acquaintance of Stroh’s, so he wasn’t leery enough of the bad guy…and Stroh took advantage of that. Over the course of several visits, he kept dropping his pen (using the excuse of his handcuffed hands for the fumbling), requiring the judge to come around his desk and kneel down next to Stroh. But in the season finale, using the same “drop the pen” act, he killed the judge and escaped before anyone was the wiser. They got a manhunt going as soon as they figured it out, but they were unable to find him. That means Rusty is vulnerable once more. Speaking of Rusty… He’s turned into a great kid, and I really love his character.

Other notes about last season: Sharon and Finn seem to be dating without realizing it. Sharon finally divorced her ex, and then she formally adopted Rusty. Sanchez was nearly fired after his mother’s caretaker — who Sanchez realized was stealing from her and leaving her alone — was killed…after Sanchez beat the crap out of the guy. Instead, he was suspended and ordered to get help for his anger issues, and one of the things he decided was he would move home and be able to help with his mother more. And finally, although the SOB spinoff isn’t happening, Fritz Howard will be back during the new season.

On tonight’s episode, “A Rose is a Rose,” the squad investigates a double homicide related to an ongoing string of home invasions in the Hollywood Hills. Meanwhile, Sanchez attempts to reintegrate himself in the division after his suspension over a questionable use of force, while Captain Raydor makes a fateful choice in the life of her adopted son, Rusty.

Catch the drama and fun tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, So You Think You Can Dance, Guilty Pleasures, & Murder in the First.

amninja2015smallThe summer TV season is here, which means another installment of American Ninja Warrior, and I am very excited about this. Last week, we watched the qualifying rounds start with some very intense new obstacles — Big Dipper, Floating Tiles, and Bungee Road — being added to the course for the contestants to tackle. I enjoyed watching the “Wolf Pack” of climbers dominate the course so easily, and I also really enjoyed watching Meagan tackle the course, becoming the first woman to complete the course in back-to-back seasons. She was awesome. There will be even more excitement coming up with Kacy Catanzaro returning this week.

On tonight’s episode, “Houston Qualifying,” the show heads to Houston, TX, where we’ll watch crowd favorite Kacy Catanzaro tackle the course again this year.

To see if Kacy can match Meagan’s performance, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching So You Think You Can Dance, Becoming Us, UnREAL, The Island, Major Crimes, and The Whispers.
