If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/27/17

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

If you’ve seen the Taken movies starring Liam Neeson, or if you’re a fan of procedurals, you’ll probably want to check out tonight’s TV spinoff. The new show stars Clive Standen (Vikings) as a younger Bryan Mills (Neeson’s character in the feature films). Mills is a former Green Beret who is dealt a horrible personal tragedy that will shape the rest of his life. He joins a small, elite CIA team, and the show is about his time with the CIA and how he becomes the father and deadly operative we know from the films. The show also stars Jennifer Beals (The Chicago Code, The L Word), Louis Ferreira (Motive), Gaius Charles (Grey’s Anatomy, Friday Night Lights), Brookliyn Sudano, James Landry Hebert, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Michael Irby (Almost Human, The Unit), Monique Gabriela Curnen (The Following), Jennifer Marsala (Lie to Me), & more.

I’ve seen the first two episodes, and I really enjoyed it. It’s full of action and drama, like a little mini-movie in every episode. And it’s heartbreaking at the beginning, even amidst all the fun action. I highly recommend checking out the first few episodes to give it a chance!

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” the murder of Bryan Mills’s sister launches him into a dangerous mission for revenge against cartel boss Carlos Mejia. A secret US intelligence agency, led by Christina Hart, covertly uses Bryan as bait to capture Mejia, and in the end recruits Bryan to become a part of their team.

Don’t miss tonight’s exciting premiere on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 24: Legacy, Kids Baking Championship, Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, APB, 2 Broke Girls, & Scorpion.

Megan’s Choice

It’s time for the 12th season premiere of The Voice, and I’m excited to see how this season pans out. Gwen Stefani returns, so it’s going to be interesting to see how the dynamics between her and Blake affect the show. I wonder if Adam and Blake’s bromance will be affected? Time will tell.

On the season premiere, the competition is fierce, the talent is exceptional, and the surprises abound as coaches Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Gwen Stefani all vie to discover and coach the next singing phenomenon from the country’s best vocalists in the “blind auditions.” The vocalists compete to be selected by one of the coaches and fight for a chance to win.

To find out how this season gets under way, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching 24: Legacy, Man With a Plan, Scorpion, APB, When We Rise, and Taken.
