If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/15/16

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!

Megan’s Choice

bluebloods115smallIt’s been one of those weeks where either myself or one of the kids are ill, making it an overall long and tiring week. I am looking forward to kicking back and relaxing tonight with some great television, and Blue Bloods definitely fits the bill.

Last week’s episode was a roller coaster for our favorite police family, as Frank struggled with his old partner publishing a book about the “good ol’ days,” because he felt that the book didn’t represent who he was today. Jamie and Eddie had a difference of opinion when Eddie signed them up for an undercover detail by bugging a detective nonstop, and that didn’t sit well with Jamie because he doesn’t want people thinking that he used his last name to get special treatment. Eddie explained that she doesn’t want to work the beat for the rest of her career, and they came to the conclusion that they would remain partners for now but that their future goals may find them going down separate paths.

Erin had the ultimate backbone of the episode when an investigator for her office was murdered while working on a case against a construction company with ties to the mob. All of the witnesses had mysteriously gone missing. Erin wasn’t going to let her friend die in vain, so she kept digging and discovered that it was actually the father of her ADA who’d been working with the mob – as was the ADA in proxy through his dad. In the end, Erin managed to bring everyone down, and I was impressed at how tough she was in order to solve her friend’s murder.

In my opinion, it wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing if Jamie and Eddie went on separate career paths, because then it would it open the door for a romantic relationship between them without the issue of them being partners getting in the way. Erin has always been one of my favorite characters because she is an excellent example of strength and intelligence for a female lead, which we need on television so that this up-and-coming generation of girls can see what they could be one day. This show always manages to teach us a lesson and also remind us of the importance of family and loyalty… All things we are short of in society as a whole.

On tonight’s episode, “Cursed,” when a local mobster is gunned down in his car, Danny and Baez try to get information from the mob’s low-level errand boy they find tied up in the trunk before the gang retaliates. Also, an NYPD officer asks for a new shield number to honor her late father, but Frank is conflicted, as it’s the same number as his deceased son, Joe’s.

Find out what the Regans have to teach us this week tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching MasterChef: Junior, Hell’s Kitchen, Hawaii Five-0, and Undercover Boss.

Jenny’s Choice

hawaiifiveo115smallI love that we’re getting to see more of Adam on Hawaii Five-0, even though he’s in prison, but Gabriel coming to see him and threatening Kono’s life made me SO mad on last week’s episode! Aside from that, it was a very good ep. Danny was incredibly irritated when he figured out that the retreat Steve had signed them up for was actually for couples – romantic couples, I mean. They decided to stick it out to get their required therapy hours over with, and while it seemed like it was going to go very badly (starting off in the plane on the way there, fighting like they always do but doing so over the young woman in the seat between them! LMAO), especially when Steve actually injured Danny’s ankle when he was trying to pretend to in order to get access to his phone to text said airplane woman, but in the end, it brought them together, at least a little. Watching Steve feel Danny’s soft arms and hands and sharing his burger was hysterical.

And then, of course, there was Kamekona’s past catching up to him. A guy he was on a crew with back in the day got out of prison and came to Kamekona for help in pulling off a deal. Kamekona original said no, but then another of the crew’s members turned up dead, and Chin asked him to go undercover again. It almost got him killed when, heartbreaking for both him and us as viewers, his brother showed up, on the bad guy’s new crew. He’d told his boss about Kamekona being the one to snitch to the cops years before (to keep his brother out of prison, no less!), and he was going to kill Kamekona on his boss’s orders. He had a change of heart, though, and when the boss started to raise his gun to kill Kamekona, his brother killed the guy before he could shoot. I loved seeing Kamekona’s (sad) past, but damn, that was heartbreaking!

On tonight’s episode, “Ua Ola Loko I Ke Aloha (Love Gives Life Within),” while McGarrett’s Aunt Deb visits Oahu to spread her husband’s ashes, Five-0 must uncover who stole unstable Japanese WWII bombs left hidden on the island. Carol Burnett guest stars.

To see if Five-0 can find the bombs, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, MasterChef: Junior, Undateable, Unforgettable, American Diner Revival, Hell’s Kitchen, Blue Bloods, & Burgers, Brew, & ’Que.
