If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/11/15

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!

Kyle’s Choice

theamazingracesmallLast week’s penultimate episode of the season of The Amazing Race was so tense and put me through a roller coaster of emotions. It was first week that the green team finally lost their lead and made some nearly costly mistakes. For the detour, the teams had to choose between cutting out fabric patterns for a suit or looking through a pile of old cell phones to find one that worked. The cheerleaders, reporters, and paparazzi all went for the former, while the green team chose the latter. The green team got lucky and finished quickly; however, instead of just talking the 2-minute walk to their next destination, they took a cab that ended up driving them around in circles for an hour. And after that, they took the wrong ferry to the next challenge.

At the House of Dancing Water show, one team member had to dive off a ship 30 feet in the air into a pool of water and look for fish. The reporters and paparazzi finished on their first try, but the cheerleaders had trouble finding the fish, and it took 20 minutes to reset the challenge after each attempt. The girls were on their second or third attempt when the green team finally showed up, but they failed again. On the next attempt, the green team found their fish, but the girls did not.

When the green team got to the mat, they discovered they had a thirty-minute penalty for taking the wrong ferry, plus another 25 minutes since the ferry they took was closer. (I think the producers, like us, also really wanted to see the green team gone!) The girls finally completed the challenge but had some taxi trouble, which delayed them just enough to arrive minutes after the green team was checked in.

I was so happy, cheering at my TV, at the chance that green would be eliminated (I can’t stand Justin!) while also screaming for the girls to find that stupid fish! The final 15 minutes of the episode were so tense, and I was so devastated to see the green team make it to the finals. (But Jenny was thrilled.)

Tonight, the final three battle it out to win. While I would be happy with either the reporters or the paparazzi winning – anyone but Justin! – I would prefer the reporters to take home the prize.

On tonight’s episode, “We Got a Chance, Baby! (Long Island, New York),” season 27 ends with the final three teams racing on Long Island, N.Y., to the finish line.

Find out who takes home the prize tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Undateable, Truth Be Told, Grimm, MasterChef Junior, Bob’s Broken Sleigh, Z Nation, and The Knick.

grimm1211smallLast season of Grimm had me wondering if I really wanted to keep watching, but this season the show has proven to me that it can get back to the brilliance it brought in the first season. It’s amazing how quickly we got back on track, and I am loving it!

Last week’s episode, we watched as Trubel was brought to the hospital by Nick, where he started to unravel so many clues about her whereabouts for the last few months. Trubel has become a soldier of sorts, with multiple passports, cash, and an expensive motorcycle tricked out with an amazing arsenal. While Trubel was in the hospital, Nick was dealing with a murder case involving a Rat King. Basically these rat Wesen felt threatened, so they end up forming together to make a giant rat that was about 50 feet tall – every person’s worst nightmare. They managed to defeat the crazy beast in the end, and Nick made it to the hospital before Trubel got kidnapped by some of the creepy creatures behind this revolution. He also learned that this revolution was bigger than they even knew and now he’s in the middle of it too. What I have been loving is the growth in the relationship between Adalind and Nick. I honestly believe they will become a fantastic couple if they can slowly build a relationship.

On tonight’s fall finale, “Wesen Nacht,” Nick and Hank investigate some highly coordinated Wesen gang vandalism, and Monroe and Rosalee end up in grave danger.

To see what exactly is going on in Portland, tune in to NBC at 9/8c.

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