If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/26/17

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’m really enjoying having Philip Winchester on my TV each week, and Chicago Justice has been a great fit for him, even though he’s mostly been doing action shows/characters up till now. Last week was a tough one. An ex-Navy SEAL was killed shortly before he was supposed to get married. It turned out the killers were two of his best friends, his SEAL teammates, who killed him because he was writing a tell-all book about a botched mission they went on while on active duty and the fact that the Navy had covered up what really happened. During the investigation & subsequent trial, Stone was ordered by his boss not to offer the video (of the failed mission) the victim had kept secret, but he was able to skirt around that when one of the two killers mentioned the mission while on the stand. So instead of the video, the guy told what had happened, which got Stone around his boss’s orders – barely. Jefferies wasn’t happy, but he didn’t fire Stone, so…

One thing I don’t understand is the purpose of the DA’s investigators. Don’t get me wrong… I love Antonio and like Laura Nagel. But what do they do that the other police (the non-DA’s investigators) don’t? And like, on the description for tonight’s ep, why are they on scene of an apparent suicide? If it’s suicide, it wouldn’t be a case for the DA, so why are the DA’s investigators there? Ah well. Just a thought I had.

On tonight’s episode, “Dead Meat,” thirty miles outside of Chicago, the cancer riddled body of Chicago PD Officer Tim Cody is found dead in a bathtub. An apparent suicide. But when Antonio and Nagel arrive on scene, they quickly determine his death was murder. The trail leads to an old nemesis of Stone, and he has to make a new law to put him away. Michael Rispoli and Sofia Milos guest star.

Find out how Stone gets the bad guy tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Little Big Shots, NCIS: LA, Spring Baking Championship, & Cake Wars.

Tonight, FOX is serving up a double-helping of Bob’s Burgers, giving us back-to-back new adventures with the Belchers. Last week Linda was excited for some mother-daughter bonding after she volunteered to be a chaperone for Tina’s weekend away at a heroine conference (not THAT kind of heroine, and yes, that joke was made on the episode!). However, Tina wanted to room with a new friend she just made, instead of her mother. Linda was extremely disappointed and went to some pretty desperate lengths to try to get her daughter’s attention, which got her kicked out of the hotel. Meanwhile, Bob had the weekend alone with Gene and Louise, but once the kids learned that Bob never had a bachelor party, they decided to throw him a wild dad-chelor party and invited Teddy over to help celebrate.

I can’t say it enough how much I enjoy this series. It is constantly finding fun new dynamics to explore within the Belcher family. I loved watching Bob trying to reign down the craziness of Gene and Louise on his own, and Teddy, of course was no help. No matter what the story line, I always find myself laughing along with this show. I’m really looking forward to tonight’s full hour of episodes!

First up, in “Aquaticism,” word spreads that the aquarium is floundering and may close, so the children concoct a scheme to help keep its head above water. Then, in “Ain’t Miss Debatin’,” the debate team recruits Tina, who finds surprising success and an even more unexpected relationship. Meanwhile, Louise and Gene convince their parents to fund a stop-motion movie project that focuses on a surprising subject.

Get an hour of funny Belchers tonight on FOX starting at 7:30/6:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Time After Time, Madam Secretary, Making History, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, The Walking Dead, Into the Badlands, Big Little Lies, and Crashing.

NCIS: LA brought us a fantastic episode last week when Eric and Nell went undercover at an unplugged retreat for millennials. They were acting as a couple, and we finally got some great scenes of them being open about their feelings, leading to an incredible kiss in the end. I know they’ve been together for a bit, but we don’t get to see that on the show, so it’s about time. The team saved the day, but my favorite parts were Eric and Nell, as well as Deeks and Kensi hanging out while doing surveillance. I’m looking forward to more movement for all the stories on deck with us hopefully finally wrapping up all the loose ends concerning the mole by the end of the season.

On tonight’s episode, “767,” after an engineer who was developing a new guided missile destroyer is murdered, Callen and Sam go undercover to track his co-worker aboard a plane to Tokyo to sell the classified intel. Also, Deeks plans a surprise get-together for Kensi and her out-of-town friends.

To see how Kensi responds to this surprise, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago Justice, Spring Baking Championship, and Guy’s Grocery Games.
