If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/13/17

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!

I loved the previous new episode of Scorpion. When an online friend of Happy’s disappeared in the middle of a conversation and never returned, Happy hacked in and found where the address the IP was coming from. She went to the nearby town and found a house surrounded by police and fire trucks. Turned out the girl had to live in a “bubble” because she was so immune compromised that she couldn’t be exposed to anything. Unfortunately, a bad storm knocked a tree and power lines into their roof, which was threatening her power supply for the oxygen and air purifier, and debris was about to crash through the hole in the roof and puncture the “bubble” (enclosure made of plastic sheeting-type stuff) she lived in. Of course, Scorpion made the trip and figured out a way to save her, but it was crazy – involved her first in a fireman’s Hazmat suit, then in a vat of fresh honey when she had an allergic reaction in the suit, finally coming out into an industrial freezer right after they burned off all the germs using cans of Sterno. Once again, you had to go with suspension of disbelief, but that’s a norm for this show. LOL

On other notes… Cabe broke up with Allie after she posted a damning video of Sly on the internet, of him wiping his palm on his sweater after shaking a military veteran’s hand. He was doing it with everyone, not singling out the veteran, but when Allie’s boss told her to do that, she did it. Cabe understood that it was her job and she needed her job, but he couldn’t be with someone who attacked one of his “family.” Sylvester ended up losing the election, but he saved the comic book store, as they found out from one of the veterans that the building had been around long enough to qualify as historic and therefore couldn’t be torn down. And finally (FINALLY!), Paige and what’s-his-face (LMAO) broke up when…okay, okay…Tim extended his time overseas because it wasn’t working out for them long distance. Yay!

On tonight’s episode, “Monkey See, Monkey Poo,” to stop a dangerous virus from spreading, Team Scorpion must locate a rare endangered monkey in the Amazon that has the antibody for the cure. Also, Toby and Happy see a counselor to prepare for matrimony. Guest star Penn Jillette returns.

See if the team can find the monkey in time tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 24: Legacy, Kevin Can Wait, Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, APB, & 2 Broke Girls.

Every time there’s a new show on, I am silly enough to doubt that I’m not going to enjoy it – that was the case with Taken. The first episode was an emotional rollercoaster as we watched Bryan’s sister be murdered and him having to realize it was about him. Last episode, Bryan started to get accustomed to working with the new team and they all learned of crooked government agents. There is also some very strong sexual tension between Bryan and his sister’s best friend. I’m looking forward to seeing where that goes.

On tonight’s episode, “Off Side,” Bryan and team search for a suspected terrorist who has been taken, leading them to uncover a deeper plot within their own government. Christina receives troubling news and turns to Harry for support. Asha expresses her concern over Bryan’s fixation with Mejia.

To see if Bryan and the team can find out just how deep the corruption goes, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching APB, The Voice, Scorpion and 24: Legacy.
