If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/9/15

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

blindspot119smallMy pick tonight is Blindspot. For someone who doesn’t like conspiracies in my TV shows, it’s amazing that I love this one as much as I do, since it is almost nothing BUT conspiracies! Last week, Weller, Jane, and his team went up to the back country to an address Patterson deciphered from one of Jane’s tattoos. There, they found a bad man (played by Lou Diamond Phillips, who I ADORE) connected to Mayfair. They had to follow even more clues and tattoos to get out of there alive after the militia (or whatever they technically were) hunted them down and shot at them. At the end of the map, they found a helicopter, which Jane knew how to fly. Meanwhile, Patterson’s boyfriend couldn’t keep his nose to himself, so while he ended up helping her to solve one of the tattoos, Mayfair caught them. Not only did she have the tattoo images out of the FBI building, but she’d told him about them, which was a no-no. So she was in big trouble. Mayfair said this was her one mistake, so she wasn’t fired, but because of it, she broke up with her boyfriend after he’d just convinced her to let him move in.

So now Weller knows something isn’t on the up-and-up with Mayfair. Will he find out more details this week, and if he does, will he share with Jane or the others? And now that Jane and Weller have begun to admit their feelings for one another are more than professional, will that continue?

On tonight’s episode, “Persecute Envoys,” after a police officer is murdered, Patterson unlocks a disturbing tattoo that appears to have predicted his killing, and the team chases a violent clue trail to stop further attacks. Mayfair reveals secrets from her past to Weller, seriously testing their relationship.

See if the team can stop the attacks tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped, Supergirl, Cake Wars, Major Crimes, Scorpion, NCIS: LA, & Castle.

crazyexgirlfriend119smallIt wasn’t love at first sight for me and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – perhaps it was the whole “Frankensteining” of the pilot from a 30-min cable show to a 45-minute network show that left that episode feeling a bit off. However, from the second episode on, the series has quickly grown to be one of my favorite new shows of the season. Last week, Greg was pressured by a young Home Base patron into finally asking Rebecca out on a date. Rebecca had seen a butter commercial earlier that day that suggested she live a healthier life, and settling for Greg seemed like a step in that direction, so she reluctantly agreed. However, the West Covina Taco Festival wasn’t the most romantic location for a first date, and Rebecca was constantly distracted by her love for Josh. By the end of the night, she ended up in bed with a vegan guacamole guy she met while on her date. Meanwhile, Josh decided it was finally time for him to get a job, and he had his sights set on the Best Buy-like Aloha Tech Center. He asked Rebecca for help on the essay part of his application, but her pretentious essay about Harper Lee cost him the job. Josh was about to settle for working at his father’s dry cleaning shop, but Rebecca used her lawyerly negotiating skills to get Josh his dream job.

The thing that really sells this show for me are the fantastic musical numbers. These fantasy sequences are so sharply written and always have me laughing out loud – not to mention that the tunes are quite catchy! Every week, I am finding this show and its quirky characters more and more fun to watch. I can’t wait to see what happens next and what entertaining musical interludes we’ll get in the process.

On tonight’s episode, “Josh and I Are Good People!” Greg accuses Rebecca of being a terrible person in front of Josh, so she takes drastic measures to prove she is a good person, which includes helping Darryl with his messy divorce. Meanwhile, Paula takes over the office as the boss for the day.

Watch Rebecca try to prove that she’s a good person tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Supergirl, Castle, Blindspot, Gotham, Jane the Virgin, Fargo, Major Crimes, Legends, and Awkward..

scorpion119smallI have found myself with a renewed love of Scorpion in the last couple of weeks, mostly due to the great story lines as well as the romance between Walter and Paige showing some growth. While it’s true that a lot of people think if the lead characters get together then you lose the dynamics of the show, but I don’t think that’s always the case. In some cases, the relationship adds even more the show itself, which this relationship would do, for sure.

Last week’s episode was a nail biter, as Paige and Ralph got stuck on a train that had been hijacked via a hacker and was speeding at insane speeds that would definitely lead to their death. Ralph’s intelligence came in handy all over the place, but what really helped was Walter running and jumping onto the train to come and see if he could stop the train by hacking into the computer. Unfortunately it didn’t work, but he ended up deciding to uncouple the train, leaving Paige and Ralph on the back cars while he was left on the last speeding car. Paige was terrified that Walter was dead. Walter survived, but Paige was angry at him for scaring her like that, so she slapped him, which later led to them having a big discussion about feelings and how upset Ralph and Paige would both be if Walter died. It was great.

On tonight’s episode, “Area 51,” to help fund Walter’s research into saving his sister’s life, Team Scorpion takes a lucrative job for the CIA to find a top-secret aircraft in the mysterious Area 51.

Find out if the team can locate the missing aircraft tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

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