If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/24/15

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!

Megan’s Choice #1

bullseyesmallI’ll be honest… The only reason I originally tuned in to Bullseye was to watch the always sexy Kellan Lutz, but my fiance and I absolutely love watching the insane challenges. This show is like Fear Factor without all the eating challenges, which I hated watching, so it’s a win-win. Last week, I loved watching them bounce down the hill in those giant balls. It was hilarious and looked fun — I would be a little freaked out about the water in there though, because knowing me, I’d probably choke on it. Overall, this show keeps me wanting more, and it’s easy television to relax to, so if you haven’t given it a chance, you most definitely should.

On tonight’s episode, “Defying Gravity,” the hosts welcome eight new contestants as they participate in the Drift Car, Defying Gravity, and Puppetmaster challenges, all of which involve using their bodies like human darts. At the end of the night, the contestant that comes out on top will go home with $50,000.

To see how this week’s contestants face the intense challenges, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

mrrobot624smallEver since I first heard about USA Network’s new drama, Mr. Robot, I’ve been excited for it to air. I’ve loved Christian Slater for years, and Rami Malek was great in both The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Pt 2 as Benjamin and Night at the Museum as Ahkmenrah. So put them together with an interesting cyber angle, and I’m in. Malek stars as Elliot, an anti-social cyber-security engineer/programmer, who is also a vigilante hacker in his free time. He’s recruited by Mr. Robot (Slater) to an underground hacker group to destroy the firm he is paid to protect – Evil Corp, the biggest company in the world. The show also stars Carly Chaikin, Frankie Shaw, Martin Wallstrom, Portia Doubleday, and Gloria Reuben.

I’ve seen tonight’s premiere, and while it’s a bit slow at times, I quite enjoyed it. You can’t help but like Elliot, who seems to me to be almost autistic. I’ll be interested to see if the cast gels more as the season goes along.

On tonight’s episode, “eps1.0_hellofriend.mov,” Elliot, a cyber-security engineer by day and vigilante hacker by night, is recruited by a mysterious underground group – fsociety – to destroy the firm he’s paid to protect. Elliot must decide how far he’ll go to expose the forces he believes are running (and ruining) the world.

Meet Elliot, Mr. Robot, and the rest of fsociety tonight on USA Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef, Melissa & Joey, Brother vs. Brother, Mystery Diners, & Craziest Restaurants in America.

Kyle’s Choice

suits624smallTonight, Suits returns to USA Network for the start of its fifth season. When we last left off, Mike had proposed to Rachel — with her father’s blessing — Louis’s longtime secretary Norma died and left Louis in charge of her estate, and Donna told Harvey she was leaving him to go work for Louis.

Was Donna afraid she was falling in love with Harvey? Is there a romantic future for these two? How is Harvey going to take the news — how can he possibly find a replacement who can fill Donna’s shoes?! And how is Donna working for Louis going to affect Harvey and Louis’s already-tenuous relationship? And finally, how are Mike and Rachel going to break the news of their engagement, and will their new status affect their work life?

I had the opportunity to catch tonight’s premiere early at the ATX Television Festival, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is filled with incredibly hilarious moments as well as some pretty heart-wrenching scenes. The season opener solidifies Louis Litt as my favorite character on the show — I love his new relationship with Donna. I can’t wait to see more of this season!

On tonight’s episode, “Denial,” Harvey’s work is impacted by changes around the office; and Donna adjusts to working for Louis, who believes she’s certain to return to Harvey. In other events, Mike and Rachel must decide how and when to share their big news.

See what changes the office and characters are going through tonight on USA Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Celebrity Wife Swap, MasterChef, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, Suits, Mr. Robot, and Deutschland 83.

Megan’s Choice #2

masterchef2015smallMasterChef is a show that I never tire of, especially because it is beyond comprehension to me why no matter how many seasons pass, the home cooks still can’t figure out how to make a team challenge work. Here’s a hint… It’s teamwork! Shelly didn’t listen to her team when they told her that her idea to make chicken roulade was ridiculous in that amount of time, and it got them sent to the pressure test. Then Shelly chose to save the weaker chefs on the team and put the strong ones against each other, hoping that Christopher and Derrick would go home, but in the end, it was Ailsa that went home, leaving Shelly to deal with Derrick’s and Christopher’s targets on her. Honestly, at first I really wanted Shelly to do well because she’s had a hard life and is a single mom, but now I realize she just doesn’t have what it takes, and hopefully she goes home soon.

On tonight’s episode, “Bring Home the Bacon,” it’s proven that breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day when the home cooks are each tasked to create an elevated breakfast dish in 45 minutes. Not only will the winner have immunity in the next mystery box challenge, but they will also receive two additional advantages. Later, in the mystery box challenge, contestants must create TV dinners.

Watch as these home cooks battle it out again this week on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Mr. Robot, The Briefcase, and Melissa & Joey.
