If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/29/15

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

theplayer1029smallThe Player has been delivering unbelievable twists and turns from the very beginning, and I am hooked. Last week we watched as Alex raced to save a teenage hacker from the Chinese Triad, who wanted him dead because he tried to reverse a virus that was planted in the Pentagon’s system. Despite a few bumps along the way, Alex managed to save Solomon, and Cassandra helped him strike a deal with the NSA. Solomon returned the favor to Alex by decoding the pictures Alex gave him, and there was a phone number hidden there. Alex called the phone number, and Ginny answered. She’s alive! However, it was very apparent she was being held against her will, and when Alex called the number back, it was disconnected. I’m not sure where this is going to go, but I do know that Alex will move heaven and earth to rescue his wife.

On tonight’s episode, “The Norseman,” the House bets on whether Alex can stop a serial killer by Halloween; Detective Brown pursues Cassandra.

Find out if Alex can save the day before the clock runs out tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Grey’s Anatomy, Chopped, Bones, Sleepy Hollow, The Blacklist, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder.

bones1029smallLast week’s Bones was a lot of fun, mainly because Betty White was a fabulous guest star. She played a world-renowned forensic anthropologist, and boy, she was more than a match for Brennan. Angela darn near fell in love when she learned that Dr. Mayer was basically the creator of so much of what Angela uses for the Angelatron. *laugh* When she learned that, her reaction was pretty funny. The case was okay… The best part about it was seeing how crazy Paul Johansson’s character, Craig Smith, was. He was definitely a fantasy football fantatic, but he truly was crazy. When he flipped out on Booth and Aubrey, I couldn’t help but laugh. But the other story line that made me laugh was the whole problem Dr. Wells was having with is…well, his man parts. His reaction out in the woods when he finally got things working was great, and I loved the story about him shooting Hodgins with a dart gun – only to get shot himself on purpose later.

Tonight is the crossover with Sleepy Hollow. I haven’t seen the episodes, but Kyle has. He said the Bones ep is really good, so I’m excited to see it.

On tonight’s episode, “The Resurrection in the Remains,” it’s Halloween time at the Jeffersonian, as the team gets a surprise visit from newly minted FBI Agent Abbie Mills (guest star Nicole Beharie) and Ichabod Crane (guest star Tom Mison), who have traveled from Sleepy Hollow to claim a headless body already under investigation by Brennan and her team. The new foursome must figure out how to work together to discover who the 200-year-old headless corpse is and how it is linked to a contemporary murder victim. Meanwhile, Booth and Brennan come up with the ultimate Halloween pranks to play on each other in the special.

See the start of tonight’s crossover event on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped, Man vs Child: Chef Showdown, Beat Bobby Flay, & Late Nite Chef Fight.

sleepyhollow1029smallThe fun of tonight’s Bones/Sleepy Hollow Halloween Crossover event continues in Sleepy Hollow, with Booth and Bones coming to town to help Ichabod and Abbie with a time-sensitive save-the-world matter. However, Booth and Bones are conveniently left in the dark as to the supernatural nature of what they’re dealing with. (I don’t think Bones’s analytical mind would ever allow her to accept the truth anyway.)

Putting this crossover event together, the creators had a tough challenge. You can’t really introduce the supernatural world to the folks at the Jeffersonian; otherwise you would forever change that show. However, they did find a fun way to insert Booth and Bones into the case, interacting with Abbie and Ichabod on their home turf while also being shielded from the truth. I think the first half of this event does a better job of integrating the second cast into its show. In the Bones half, Abbie and Ichabod feel like a major part of the episode and there is only one main storyline/case. In the Sleepy Hollow half, Booth and Bones feel more like minor guest characters in an episode which also includes two other separate continuing storylines. This means Bones viewers just checking in to see their favorite duo may find some of the episode a little hard to follow.

That said, I enjoyed the episode as an episode of Sleepy Hollow, which just happens to have an appearance by Booth and Bones. I love that FOX did something fun and seemingly crazy like this. I really enjoy these kinds of crossover events, but since I don’t watch any of CBS’s NCIS shows or NBC’s Chicago-based shows, they are few and far between for me.

On tonight’s episode, “Dead Men Tell No Tales,” the FBI is flummoxed by a strange death, but Abbie and Ichabod search for supernatural reasons to make their case to Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan and Agent Seeley Booth. Meanwhile, Pandora resurrects a British general; and the town is threatened by an army of undead soldiers.

Check out the end of this Halloween crossover tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Heroes Reborn, The Blacklist, The Player, Bones, Haven, and Nathan for You.
