If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/6/15

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

hawaiifiveo116smallThere were a lot of fun moments on last week’s Hawaii Five-0. First off… Jerry as a vampire going to the blood bank to donate blood? Hysterical. The fact that armed thieves then broke in to that same blood bank and steal blood? Ahh, vampires… LOL Danny had to get Grace from an unsupervised party…where she was looking awfully grown up! I loved him practicing what he was going to say to her. And I swooned when he walked through the hospital with Charlie – who looked adorable in a cowboy costume – giving out candy instead of getting it. The case started with an awesome chase through the woods. I wouldn’t have guessed it was pretend, not real. It was fun…until they tripped over the gross body. That led to the discovery of multiple bodies, and what that led to turned out out to be horrifying. A man was killing young women and taking specific body parts to create his own perfect woman. It was a modern-day Frankenstein. Chilling.

On tonight’s episode, “Na Kama Hele (Day Trippers),” McGarrett’s first date with Lynn (Sarah Carter) on a deserted island turns deadly when a mob boss hiding there hunts them down in order to keep his location a secret. Also, Chin, Kono, and Grover must race against the game clock to locate the father of a high school football star who will be murdered by a local gambler if his son doesn’t throw the big game.

See if the team can rescue the father and how McGarrett’s date ends up tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Amazing Race, Last Man Standing, MasterChef: Junior, Undateable, Truth Be Told, Grimm, Blue Bloods, & BBQ Blitz.

Kyle’s Choice

theknick116smallThe Knick is having a stellar second season. Last week we discovered that Thackery’s detox was short-lived as he took a cue from a fellow junkie and combined opium with his heroin to balance off the side effects – and switched to snorting the new drug so that there would be no track-mark evidence during his workplace inspections. Meanwhile, Bertie started his new position at Mt. Sinai, where he had a meet-cute with journalist Genevieve Everidge; Cornelia asked her husband for money to help Sister Harriet’s legal defense, but he was upset she wanted to support a baby murderer (if he only knew about her abortion!); Cleary’s plans to raise the money went out the window when the coke he gave his prizefighter to give him an edge accidentally killed him; Gallinger was still blaming Thackary for his misfortunes; and Thackary convinced some mourners to donate their daughter’s body to science so he could work on a syphilis cure.

This series is so beautifully shot and scored, which make the gruesome and barbaric (by today’s standards) surgery scenes stand out even more. The show is setting up a lot of interesting storylines, and I am looking forward to seeing how it all plays out and how these storylines will intersect. If you’re already a fan of the show, I highly recommend following @AtTheKnick on Twitter for interesting factoids about the era being portrayed on screen and checking out the official The Knock Podcast for really interesting postmortems after each episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Wonderful Surprises,” Thackery’s syphilis treatment is put to the test, while Harriet has her day in court.

Find out how the treatment is tested tonight on Cinemax at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, Undateable, Truth Be Told, Grimm, MasterChef: Junior, and Z Nation.

Megan’s Choice

grimm116smallI was excited for Grimm to return last week, and it didn’t disappoint me at all. We watched as Nick dealt with the death of Juliette and her body, along with Trubel being kidnapped. Nick appeared to everyone else as though he’d gone off the deep end, but in the end we saw that he was actually quite sane and was spot on about Chavez being into something. Agent Chavez wasn’t actually bad, but she was putting a group together to stop the rising, and she warned Nick of this just before she succumbed to her injuries from the fight. We’ve definitely not heard the last of any of this, and it’s going to make for an intense season. Nick also became a father last week to a beautiful boy, who they named Kelly. I’m not sure how Adalind and Nick are going to be parents together, but I do know that Nick is determined to protect them all.

On tonight’s episode, “Clear and Wesen Danger,” Nick must make some major changes to keep his child and Adalind safe. Monroe and Rosalee step in to help prepare for the new addition. Meanwhile, Capt. Renard assigns Hank a new partner as they investigate a brutal murder at an investment group.

To watch Nick adjust to fatherhood and Hank handle getting a new partner, tune in to NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, The Amazing Race, and MasterChef: Junior.
