If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/28/15

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

chicagopd1028smallI am loving each and every episode of Chicago PD this season. Last week, Voight and the squad went after the man who’d tried to blow him and his family up and who was going after everyone who’d been on Voight’s team when he illegally got him sent to prison years before. That isn’t to say the guy was innocent, just that Voight lied about something and that’s what ultimately put the guy away. The guy was good… He manipulated things to pit Voight against Olinsky and make Voight doubt Al’s claim that he wasn’t the one who stole the guy’s money. In the end, the theft was an inside job, that man turned on his boss, and our team captured both men. Meanwhile, Al sent off the paternity test, but his wife (ex? I’m never clear about that. LOL) basically gave him an ultimatum.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens with Al and his daughter (or is she?) and his family. And now that Voight’s basically given Jay his permission, I can’t wait to see things get hotter between him and Erin. And finally, Voight’s problem about lying during the case years ago hasn’t gone away, so will this be the end of Voight? Surely not. Wouldn’t be the same show without him. And you gotta admit he’s really cleaned up his act since the beginning of the show. He still skirts the line, but I don’t consider him a true dirty cop anymore, so that’ll be fun to see how that plays out. Tonight is a 2-hour episode (2 episodes, but most places, including my DVR, show it as a single 2-hour block), and I can’t wait.

On tonight’s episode, “Climbing Into Bed/You Never Know Who’s Who,” after a botched undercover job, Ruzek is under scrutiny by the new Street Deputy Crowley (guest star Barbara Eve Harris), who will determine his future with the unit. A suspicious person call turns into a murder investigation when Burgess and her temporary partner Price (guest star Travis A. Knight) discover the body of a dead man in an SUV. After Mouse identifies the victim as the owner of a security company, the unit soon realizes there might be more to his story. Halstead and Lindsay take a step forward in their relationship.

Find out what happens with Ruzek and between Jay and Erin tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing World Series, Hellevator, The Mysteries of Laura, The Goldbergs, Criminal Minds, black-ish, Code Black, & Mystery Diners.

codeblack1028smallCode Black is getting better every week in my opinion because we are learning more details about all the characters as well as seeing some intense medical cases. I love the addition of Cole, Guthrie’s estranged son, because it adds just one more layer to the cast.

On last week’s episode, we watched a whole slew of interesting cases, from a woman who couldn’t stop orgasming because of a psychological issue, people burned in a fire, and a girl who wasn’t pregnant, even though the test said she was. The woman with the orgasm issues was fixed by Jesse, who gave her pepper to sneeze and convinced her that was all the release her body needed. Next we have the girl who came in and tested positive for pregnancy, but she was adamant that she was still a virgin. Her mother wasn’t being very kind about the whole thing. In the end, Pineda proved that it was actually a brain tumor causing the false positive, and now she’d get treatment for that. Finally, we had the most complicated case of the night, a supposed grandfather, daughter, and her son who came in with burn injuries, but it turned out that the little boy was sick with a severe infection, so the mom set a fire to get to the hospital and escape the man who wasn’t her father but her kidnapper. That was a crazy twist. I was definitely sensing some sexual tension between Hudson and Christa, and I’m looking forward to see it explored further. Overall, it was a stellar episode, and it left us wanting more of everything.

On tonight’s episode, “Doctors with Borders,” Neal clashes with his father, Dr. Peter Hudson, a neurosurgeon, over how to treat his gravely ill mother, Asra Hudson, whose mysterious symptoms force Angels Memorial to quarantine Trauma One.

To see what happens with the quarantine, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, Chicago PD, Arrow, American Horror Story, black-ish, and The Mysteries of Laura.

Kyle’s Choice

thegoldbergs1028smallAs I said last week at this time, ABC’s comedy block is one of the highlights of my Wednesday night TV schedule, and one of the shows that I always enjoy is The Goldbergs. Last week, Lainey made the mistake of asking Erica for help on testing Barry’s commitment to their relationship. Erica told Barry that Lainey was attracted to real, confident man, like Boy George. Barry, of course, took this literally and changed his style, becoming Boy Barry (though he preferred “Barry George”). Meanwhile, Murray and his buddy Bill decided to take a cue from Magnum and grow mustaches. Beverly hated Murray’s new fuzzy upper lip and went through some drastic measures to get him to remove it. We didn’t get much of an Adam storyline, but he did pop up at the end to play a fun fake letter from Chuck Norris prank on Barry.

I just love the way this show is able to mix humor, nostalgia, and heart into a wonderfully entertaining half hour each week. I have always been a big fan of holiday-themed episodes, particularly of these family comedies, and as someone who celebrated Halloween in the 1980s, I’m looking forward to seeing how the Goldbergs celebrate the season in tonight’s episode!

On tonight’s episode, “Couples Costume,” Adam chooses to spend Halloween night with Dana rather than Beverly, who decides to teach her son a lesson about the dangers of the holiday. And later, Adam regrets taking Barry and Erica’s advice to visit a haunted house when he’s expected to go back inside to find Dana’s lost promise ring.

See why Dana’s back in town and how the family celebrates this fun holiday tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, Code Black, The Middle, The Goldbergs, black-ish, Arrow, Supernatural, American Horror Story: Hotel, The League, You’re the Worst, Worst Cooks in America, and Moonbeam City.
