If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/18/16

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!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, the first season of USA Network’s crime drama Eyewitness comes to a close. Last week, things got really tense – Lukas survived being shot but was in a coma. Ryan tried to poison Lukas’s IV bag in order to finally silence him, but Lukas was moved to another room before the bag was attached. Ryan was also surprised to learn that Philip, Helen’s foster son, was another witness to his murders. Meanwhile, Philip recognized Ryan at a gas station and alerted Helen (though neither was aware that he is the FBI agent she has been working with). Things went into high alert at the hospital, and Helen called Ryan to help protect the boys. However, shortly afterwards she finally had her Keyser Söze moment – in Ryan’s glove compartment she found the cologne worn by the killer, and in the backseat she saw the hat and glasses Philip said the killer was wearing. Her heart sank as she realized that she had just told the killer exactly where the boys were hiding.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this first season of Eyewitness. The series has a very unique look and feel. Each of the characters has his or her own interesting storyline, complete with character flaws and personal demons to overcome. And the central relationship between Philip and Lukas is one that is not regularly seen on TV. At the same time, we’ve also been getting this really tense cat-and-mouse game with Ryan always being two steps ahead of Helen and ready to kill her if she learns too much. I found myself yelling at the screen, hoping for Helen to realize what was really going on with Ryan. She had just been handing him all the evidence and details on the case. I was thrilled to finally see her wake up at the end of last week’s episode. But is it too late? Will she be able to stop him before he gets to the boys? Also, assuming his son survives, how will Bo react to Lukas’s relationship with Philip? And how will Tony take the news that his idol is the killer they had been looking for?

On tonight’s finale, “Mother’s Day,” Helen learns the identity of the killer and races to find Philip and Lukas, who are missing.

Catch the finale tonight on USA Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary and The Librarians.

Jenny’s Choice

Three weeks ago, we finally made a bit of progress on the mole front on NCIS: LA. A woman killed two men dressed as Sheriff’s deputies, right in front of Callen’s house. Of course, they weren’t actually law enforcement, which was good. But unfortunately, once the team caught up with the woman and tried to help her out and get information from her about the mole, she was shot and killed before she could give them much. Turned out she’d cozied up to the guy who worked at NCIS who the team had already found, and that’s how she was involved. Nell got that story and the woman’s name out of the guy in prison. She rocked it like a pro. Love her! Of course, now that Callen’s address has been leaked, he has to move. Poor guy. Finally getting settled, and now he’s gotta go!

On a more personal note for the team, Kensi is doing much better. We got to see both her mother and Deeks’s hovering, making sure she was okay. Considering she was out running and is up and walking and brushing her hair, I think she’s finally getting better. And then she kicked them out because they were smothering her… That was great. Of course, she’s not back to 100% yet and not back to work, but I’m hopeful that when the show comes back after the holidays, it’ll bring Kensi back with it!

On tonight’s holiday-themed episode, “Tidings We Bring,” Sam partners with Anna (Bar Paly)
and Callen goes with Deeks as the team investigates the disappearance of a Navy Lieutenant Commander who is working with the NSA on foreign cyber threats. Also, the team celebrates the holidays together.

To see if the team can find the Navy Lieutenant, tune in to CBS at 8:30/7:30c because of football overruns.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, The Librarians, Holiday Baking Championship, & Clash of the Grandmas.
