If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/25/15

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!

hawaiifiveo925smallOn last season’s finale of Hawaii Five-0, Kono and Adam finally got married…after the team found and stopped a nuclear bomb from going off on the island. It had been stolen from a military transport and flown in to Hawaii, but when the team got there, the pilot was dead and the bad guys and the bomb were gone. They thought the main bad guy was in it to sell the bomb for money, but it turned out he just wanted to set it off to start a war that America would finish. When the team found the bomb, it was on a shopping trolley, set to go off in the middle of the city.

Meanwhile, a few days before the wedding, Chin confronted Adam about his connection to the Yakuza, but Adam’s explanation about the man he’d been photographed with made Chin feel better, and when Adam told him that he would give up everything – including his company – it was too sweet. Chin had to go to the car to get the rings, and his brother-in-law, bad-guy Gabriel, surprised him, holding a gun on him. Gabriel was getting back into business, and he offered Chin half his earnings if he stayed out of Gabriel’s way. When Chin turned him down, Gabriel said to turn around, but instead of shooting him, he was gone when Chin turned back.

Finally, Catharine returned to the island for the wedding, surprising Steve, and while their reunion was warm, it was also awkward. I have a feeling she won’t be staying long… And Danny got big news when Rachel asked to speak to him, and she brought Charlie, her son. She said that he was sick and needed a bone marrow transplant, but neither she nor Grace were a match, so she wanted Danny to get tested because…Charlie was his son.

This season starts off right after the ceremony. With Gabriel on the loose, Catherine in town, and now Danny learning he’s got a 2nd kid, it should be a fun season premiere!

On tonight’s episode, “Mai ho`oni i ka wai lana mâlie (Do Not Disturb the Water that is Tranquil),” a murder leads Five-0 to investigate a centuries-old Oahu palace raid involving pirates, buried treasure and a killer who is using a stolen painting as a map. Also, the morning after their wedding, Kono and Adam are threatened and tortured by Gabriel, and Danny shows concern for McGarrett regarding Catherine’s return to the island.

See how Kono and Adam get away from Gabriel and if Five-0 can find the treasure, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Amazing Race, Last Man Standing, & Blue Bloods.

theamazingracesmallTonight, eleven new teams head out on another race around the world for the million dollar prize in the 27th season of The Amazing Race. This year’s teams cover quite the range – from TMZ coworkers, paparazzi photographers, news reporters and a morning radio DJ to doctors, dancers, students, retail workers, former cheerleaders and a teacher. And these teams also cover the gamut of relationships–cousins, mother/son, a married couple, brothers, best friends, an engaged couple and a pair of dating couples. Last season, the blind date teams did really well, proving that even complete strangers can do really well at this game. Which of these teams will be able to keep from bickering and work together to win the prize?

I don’t really have any favorites I’m rooting for yet. I’ll need to see what happens tonight before I choose which horses to back. I always enjoy this show, from the interesting challenges and sights, to seeing how these different teams interact – both within their team as well as with the others. This past summer, the third season of Amazing Race Canada introduced a new Face-Off challenge, so I’ll be interested to see if this makes its way onto the American series this season, or what other new twists Phil has for us this time around.

On tonight’s episode, “A Little Too Much Beefcake,” eleven teams begin Season 27 in Venice Beach, Cal., and then fly to Rio de Janeiro, where they immediately encounter a potentially game-changing Fast Forward.

Meet the new teams and see the race begin tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Z Nation and Continuum.

bluebloods925smallTo say I’m excited would be an understatement, because tonight one of my favorite dramas returns – Blue Bloods. There is just something about the Regan family that I can’t help but love; however, it’s the fantastic writing and character development of the whole show that keeps me coming back again and again. When we left our favorite crime-fighting family, Linda had been shot by a boy who was just trying to keep his mom safe from the gang. Thankfully, Linda pulled through. However, it had Danny going on an arresting spree of gang members because he wanted to make this count for something. In the end, they got the murderer they were looking for, and the young boy, Curtis got a deal. Everyone was happy at the end when they finished with a Regan family dinner like usual.

On tonight’s premiere, “Worst-Case Scenario,” Frank goes on high alert when a threat to New York City may be imminent following a terrorist attack in the Middle East.

To see this possible terrorist attack unfold, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, The Amazing Race, Shark Tank, and Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.
