If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/23/16

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!

Jenny’s Choice

ncis223smallLast week’s NCIS was exciting. The Secretary of the Navy’s (Sarah Porter) daughter was kidnapped, along with her boyfriend, and while the boyfriend was found shortly after, alive and unharmed, they eventually got a ransom call, asking for $10 million. They wouldn’t allow Porter to deliver the ransom like the instructions said, in case it was someone who specifically wanted to get to her, so her ex-husband agreed to do it. When he got to the drop-off point, they sent him to another place, and when he saw the van, they told him to give them the money, but then they shot at him and raced away, leaving him to watch as they closed the door on his view of his daughter. They also remotely blew up a few cars in the parking garage near Gibbs and McGee. Everyone ended up okay, thank goodness. In the end, it was personal. The former special-ops team was hired by the ex-husband’s girlfriend, but they killed her and tried to leave the city in a helicopter, only to be stopped by Gibbs & co.

We’re on the back half of the season, leading up to Tony’s departure. I’m worried… How will he go out? Will he be reunited with Ziva? With Jeanne Benoit (who is my pick, if she divorces her husband or something… She’s back tonight, so maybe we’ll get some answers on that front…)? He’s gotta find a forever love, right?

On tonight’s episode, “Loose Cannons,” Doctor Cyril Taft (Jon Cryer) experiences the rush of an NCIS case after he is assigned surgical duty to Gibb’s suspect and finds key evidence. Also, Dinozzo pays Jeanne Benoit (Scottie Thompson) a visit as he chases a lead involving doctors in Sudan. Laura San Giacomo & David Chisum also guest star.

See how Tony’s visit with Jeanne goes tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hollywood Game Night, Team Ninja Warrior, Grandfathered, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chicago Med, Junk Food Flip, The Little Couple, NCIS: NOLA, Rizzoli & Isles, Chicago Fire, Chopped, Rattled, & The Shannara Chronicles.

chicagomed223smallChicago Med has had a few really strong weeks for character growth, but last week was a much awaited moment. Will finally kissed Natalie after an episode filled with arguing and different opinions. He kissed her after he apologized and she questioned him about why he always argues with her one minute and is nice the next. This was a long overdue moment, because they’ve been flirting the whole season, and they will be a fabulous couple, so hopefully the writers actually get them together.

Of course, there are many things that make this show great besides the character interactions, because week after week they provide intriguing medical cases as well. If you haven’t watched it yet, you really should!

On tonight’s episode, “Intervention,” Dr. Rhodes and Dr. Choi disagree over the final decision made by a patient suffering from a life-threatening heart condition. The pending lawsuit against Dr. Halstead continues to move forward, and Sarah Reese and Dr. Zanetti scramble to save a patient with a misdiagnosed flesh-eating bacterial disease. Elsewhere, Dr. Manning treats a young girl diagnosed with a contagious bacterium, prompting her and Dr. Halstead to take action to avoid a major outbreak.

Find out how the lawsuit affects Dr. Halstead this week tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS, NCIS: NOLA, Limitless, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Chicago Fire.

thegrinder223smallOn last week’s episode of The Grinder, Dean was waking up with nightmares, re-living a scene from his TV show in which his character climbed his way out of his own grave. Dean’s therapist Jillian (guest star Maya Rudolph) suggested that it was time for him to move on from his character and give up everything Grinder. Dean decided he would stop being so dramatic all the time but then proceeded to host the most dramatic ceremony ever to burn all of his Grinder keepsakes. The person who seemed to take all of this the hardest was superfan Todd. Meanwhile, Stewart was getting frustrated with his father’s lax attitude toward the malpractice case that had been filed against him and wanted to take control of the defense, but his father wouldn’t let him.

This show is so much fun – it was great seeing Dean try to suppress his inner Grinder. But how long can he really keep from “grinding”?! Who is this mystery client from the 80s who wants to take Dean Sr. down, and why do they hold a grudge against him? Can Stewart convince his father to let him help before it’s too late?

On tonight’s episode, “Delusions of Grinder,” Stewart believes there is a conspiracy against the firm and investigates. Meanwhile, Dean sheds his “Grinder” persona to concentrate on becoming the office intern.

See if Stewart learns anything tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Limitless, Fresh Off the Boat, The Muppets, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Hollywood Game Night, New Girl, Grandfathered, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Flash, iZombie, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, Pitch Slapped, Teen Wolf, and The Shannara Chronicles.
