If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/30/16

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

hawaiifiveo930smallLast week on Hawaii Five-0, there was a first for Five-0: a dead body inside their war room! The team went on the trail of a serial killer killing…well, serial killers and leaving these weird old chess pieces in their mouths. There was a great six-minute chase scene, where the bad guy was played by a guy who does parkour in real life, so there were all kinds of jumps and escapes that the team had to match – including Steve, who was JUST released from the hospital following the life-saving surgery and liver transplant from Danny. My favorite was the drop from balcony to balcony to get to the ground. I always love that. I couldn’t do it… Would scare me to death! The scariest part was when Steve got home and someone had left another chess piece for him. Dun dun dun! Surely that will come into play later…

On a personal front… No Adam yet for Kono, but I know he gets out this season and they get to restart their married lives. And Abby is supposedly in Hawaii full-time now as a member of HPD. Julie Benz is still listed as a guest star, so I don’t know how much we’ll see her. But I do hope we get to see some of her with Chin, because they’re adorable. Speaking of Chin… He and Sara (his dead wife’s niece – Gabriel’s daughter) are growing closer since Gabriel’s and her mother’s deaths, but the social worker called and said she’d found Sara’s aunt and uncle in Mexico, which means in less than a month, Sara will be leaving. I hope not. I kind of love how Chin is with her, and it gives him another good memory of his wife. I guess we’ll see what happens. And finally, where is Max? There’s a new medical examiner. Am I not remembering something from the finale last season? Did he take a sabbatical or quit or something??

On tonight’s episode, “No ke ali’i wahine a me ka ‘aina (For Queen or Country),” Five-0 must work with rogue MI-6 agent Harry Langford (guest star Chris Vance) to find a terrorist planning to cause nuclear reactors across Europe to meltdown. Also, McGarrett and Danny ask retired FBI profiler Alicia Brown (guest star Claire Forlani) to help them find their serial killer vigilante.

Catch all the action tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, Last Man Standing, MacGyver, Blue Bloods, & Van Helsing.

bluebloods930smallBlue Bloods returned last week with a strong episode that had Danny in the hot seat for shooting the serial killer who kidnapped his niece. The grand jury found him not guilty of any wrongdoing and said the shooting was justified.

I was glad to see them push the question of why people become police officers, and I was moved by the never-ending dedication this family portrays. Personally I believe there are real families like this out there, and that makes me feel better, knowing some of these officers pursued the career because it was a passion for them.

On tonight’s episode, “Good Cop Bad Cop,” Danny and Baez investigate the death of an elderly woman who was shot in her home by a stray bullet. Also, Frank faces ridicule from his department when he disciplines a disrespectful cop, and Erin steps in to help her detective, Anthony, find a legal solution to a case that’s personal to him.

Find out if Frank can handle the backlash tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, MacGyver, The Exorcist, Hell’s Kitchen, and Van Helsing.
