If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/4/15

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!

grimm124smallI’m kind of loving Grimm this season. I was so tired of Juliette and the whole story line with her being turned into a Wessen. Nick is harder this season, but I’m kind of digging that – and I love his relationship now with Adalind. We’ll see if she changes personalities again, but as of now, it’s great. On the last new episode, a rich mobster Wessen challenged three other Wesen to compete for his daughter’s heart/hand in marriage. The challenge was they had to kill the man the mobster felt was responsible for his son’s death. The problem was, the men kept getting killed before they could actually kill the guy. It turned out to be the daughter doing the killing, much to her father’s shock. My favorite part was the potential dead man going absolutely crazy when he saw the mobster change from human-looking to his Wessen self. Wu’s reaction throughout the episode dealing with that guy was hysterical, given that he’d been in that position before.

On tonight’s episode, “Rat King,” Nick and Hank are called to the scene when three Wesen go out on a hunt at a local dump and get more than they bargained for when two turn up dead after they encounter the mythical Rat King. Meanwhile, a very badly wounded Trubel (guest star Jacqueline Toboni) is taken to the hospital, and Nick finally meets Meisner (guest star Damien Puckler).

Find out if Trubel survives tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Amazing Race, Last Man Standing, MasterChef: Junior, Undateable, Unforgettable, Truth Be Told, & American Diner Revival.

theknick124smallThe Knick continues to be the show I most look forward to every Friday night. Last week, Thackery successfully performed the surgery to separate the conjoined twins in a standing-room-only operating theatre while a film camera documented the entire procedure. Abby and Thackary’s relationship seemed to be going great, but she was still self-conscious about her nose (or lack thereof) and asked Thackary if he could do something to improve her appearance. Meanwhile, Carr decided to show up for his hernia operation at the Knick before Algernon had a chance to get the okay. Algernon decided to just do the surgery himself, but racist Gallinger tampered with the drugs, causing a situation during the operation that allowed him to swoop in and look like a hero. And elsewhere, Cornelia continued with her murder investigation project; Lucy visited Ping Wu, allowing him to partake in his foot fetish in order to earn money for her ball gown; and Sister Harriet moved in with Cleary and the two decided to go into the condom business.

Not only is this series completely engrossing and entertaining story-wise, but it also so beautifully shot and scored. Last week there was this 2-3 minute one-shot at the ball that was so amazing to watch. We are in the home stretch for the season, and while I don’t want it to end, I’m excited to see where the story goes in these final episodes!

On tonight’s episode, “Not Well at All,” Thackery attempts a new cure in the inebriation ward; Brockhurst demands his “girls” be returned; Gallinger and his wife’s relationship and Bertie’s relationship with Genevieve go off in surprising directions. Later, Cornelia shows evidence of the company’s wrongdoing to Henry; Barrow’s marriage troubles come to a head; and Thackery performs plastic surgery on Abby.

See how Abby’s plastic surgery goes tonight on Cinemax at 10/9c.

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

theamazingracesmallThe Amazing Race is almost done for this season, and the green team has been dominating leg after leg. I’m not surprised, because they are intense fans of the show so they seem to know exactly which mistakes not to make. They also don’t fight a lot, which definitely helps, and they both work very hard at tasks. The team of journalists has been coming in second every leg recently, but they are really trying to get the first place finish, which, if they keep up their great performances, they just might get, maybe even the final. Last week, Team Alabama was eliminated, and honestly that’s a relief because that woman was starting to really get on my nerves. What about you? Is your favorite team still in it?

On tonight’s episode, “It’s Not Easy Beating Green,” the final four teams race through Hong Kong and Macau, China where they take part in a spectacular water show at the House of Dancing Water and compete for a chance to race in the final leg.

To find out which three teams advance to the finals, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Grimm, MasterChef: Junior, and Z Nation.
