If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/2/15

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!

legends112smallTonight, Legends returns to TNT for the start of its second season, and there have been a lot of changes to the show. The only returning regular cast member from the first season is star Sean Bean (that’s a first – usually he’s the only one to die!). Martin is on the run, but he has changed his identity so many times that even he is unsure of his true identity. Is he FBI Agent Martin Odum, the man who killed the FBI director? Or is his true identity that of Iraq vet John Cameron? Or maybe he’s really a Russian gangster named Dmitry Petrovich? While Martin is on a mission to figure out who he really is – and to keep away from the various people hunting down his many personas for different reasons – he’s got some help from his former FBI boss Tony Rice (guest star Morris Chestnut), who is enlisting a new agent (Kelly Overton) to help is old friend John Cameron.

I’m interested to see how the show reinvents itself in this second season, how long Morris Chestnut sticks around (after all, he does have his own show, Rosewood), and if we’ll learn whatever happened to Martin’s old support team. Will we learn about even more of Martin’s past legends, and will he ever figure out his true identity?

On tonight’s premiere, “The Legend of Dmitry Petrovich,” Martin Odum is hiding out in present-day London, searching for clues about his identity with help from a CIA agent (Kelly Overton). Elsewhere, an investigation is launched into a Russian gangster.

Meet the new players tonight on TNT at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Supergirl, Blindspot, Gotham, Minority Report, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, Fargo, Major Crimes, Awkward., and Faking It.

"MAJOR CRIMES""Hostage To Fortune" / Ep 408TNTPh: Eddy ChenI’m so happy because Major Crimes is back tonight for its fall premiere. When we left off in August, a judge’s son was killed, and her brother and his family gathered around her in the police station to be kept safe since it was thought that the rest of the gang of a member she was prosecuting was behind the murder. They then learned that the judge’s 13-year-old nephew was missing. It turned out he hadn’t been kidnapped, and when they found him at home, they finally learned that the dead man had sexually abused both him and his older brother – who’d killed him. It was such a traumatizing case for everyone. Patricia Wettig killed it as Judge Ryan. She had me in tears throughout. Meanwhile, Rusty finally found Alice’s (Mariana’s) brother, Gus, and they finally buried her properly. But Gus had to be convinced that the best course of action was to let his other sister, Paloma, stay where she was with her foster family because she was doing really well and had a good life. Rusty, Sharon, and Andy talked to him about sacrificing his wishes for his sister’s wellbeing. When she’s 18, he can get in contact with her. And finally, Andy and Sharon have been growing closer and dating, although it’s been a very slow process, but they’re too cute together. All in all, it was a good first half to the season, and I can’t wait for these new episodes!

On tonight’s episode, “Four of a Kind,” four wealthy one percenters are left for dead outside a hospital emergency room in a twisty-curvy murder that leads through an impossible list of suspects, including a high school daughter with her father’s iPhone password, a diabetic chauffeur, the owner of several LA parking lots, and a mysterious woman with great legs who trips up Andy on her way to Mexico. Meanwhile, Rusty pursues a taboo subject for his next story on “Identity.”

Find out how they narrow down the suspect list tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Supergirl, Scorpion, NCIS: LA, & Blindspot.

scorpion112smallLast week’s 90-minute episode of Scorpion was incredible, and I have a new love for the show. We watched as Walter’s technology for the new smart building went horribly wrong due to a virus that was uploaded to the system. It all happened when Walter was drugged by a woman at the bar after he made an attempt to be more “normal.” The virus caused the building to start shutting down and a fire broke out. Happy got it under control; however, the smoke was affecting Sylvester up in the game room, where he was watching the kids. The doors were locked, and they couldn’t get out, which started a gigantic landslide of issues that had one thing after another failing, causing drastic problems. In the end, after some crazy antics by Walter and the team, they found it was an inside guy who had Walter drugged because his part of the budget got cut. I’m so glad that the team solved the problems, but I was also really amused by Paige’s jealousy over Walter being with another girl. It’s time those two stopped dancing around their feelings and got together already. After such a great episode last week, I am really looking forward to this week.

On tonight’s episode, “Crazy Train,” the team must intervene when Paige and Ralph are on a sabotaged, runaway subway train; Toby tries to impress Happy during his first boxing match.

To see if the team can save them in time, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Supergirl, NCIS: LA, The Voice, Minority Report, Blindspot, and Gotham.
