If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/27/17

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

Last week, we met Dr. Halstead’s father on Chicago Med, when Will’s brother Jay (from Chicago PD) called and told him his father was having some trouble. He took Dr. Rhodes with him and they convinced the man to go to the hospital. Turned out he had some heart problems that were getting worse. Will’s dad was a gruff, almost mean guy, but in the end, after he had surgery to fix his heart problems, he and Will shared a touching moment. It was really sweet. Dr. Rhodes also had to deal with the worsening problems of his girlfriend, Robin…who is Dr. Charles’s daughter. She was hearing things (specifically rats in the walls). Dr. Charles tried to ask how she was doing, but she didn’t want him “shrinking” her. In the end, they convinced her there’s something wrong, and that story carries over into tonight.

The saddest story line from last week, though, had to be the teenage boy who came into the ER after being beaten up at school. Turned out he was having trouble controlling his sexual urges. At school, he’d been found peeping into the girls’ locker room, and the boys who found him beat him up. But he begged Dr. Choi to castrate him because he couldn’t control himself, and he was afraid it would get worse and he’d do something really bad. Dr. Choi agreed to talk to his parents (who were SUPER religious) about chemical castration, which isn’t permanent, but his parents said no way. Unfortunately, the boy was later caught in a sleeping female patient’s room. He tried to tell Dr. Choi she looked cold and he was covering her up, when in reality he was uncovering her. He ran into the bathroom after grabbing some scissors and proceeded to harm himself, trying to give himself a true, physical castration (or something). It was really a horrible, sad story.

On tonight’s episode, “Deliver Us,” Dr. Rhodes fights to save a mother who’s desperate to help her daughter beat cancer. Dr. Charles asks Sarah to conduct his daughter Robin’s psych evaluation but has difficulty staying out of the case. When Will and Dr. Manning spend more time together at work, Nina goes to extreme measures to get Will’s attention. Meanwhile, Dr. Choi puts pressure on Noah when a residency spot becomes available.

See if Sarah can help Robin tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, MasterChef: Junior, The Great Indoors, Farmers’ Market Flip, & Impractical Jokers.

I have been really enjoying this latest season of The Amazing Race. Last week we had a double-dose of episodes. First, the teams were in Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, where their first task was to find the Freddie Mercury House. The Detour had the teams either looking for special doors along long alleyways or hunting for keys hidden inside giant stacks of chests. At the Road Block, the teams had to make a ladle, and Brooke whined the entire time about how difficult the task was. Though, she surprisingly got help and encouragement from most of the other teams. Shamir and Sara were so far behind that Phil didn’t even wait for them to make it to the mat before sending them packing.

In the second leg, the teams headed to Alesund, Norway, where Becca and Floyd used the Fast Forward (even though they had the Express Pass), which required them to tandem skydive out of a helicopter. Meanwhile, the other teams faced a Road Block which had one member of each team climbing a 13-story tower of wooden pallets to help build a bonfire. Then, in the Detour, the teams either had to roam around the village reciting poems to collect rockets or kayak through the canal looking for specially-marked lures on fishing poles. Tara and Joey got to the pit stop first (for the second leg in a row), while Becca and Floyd ended up in third due to their Fast Forward taking longer than expected – though they didn’t regret their choice. Liz and Mike came in last due to a bad decision by Mike to try to use a parking garage to get to the pit stop. This caused a big fight on the mat, even after Phil revealed that it was a non-elimination leg.

While most of these teams of strangers seem to have formed good relationships with their partners, some of them most certainly have not. Can Liz and Mike get over their arguing, or will they be the next to go? (I was thrilled to see the bickering team of Shamir and Sara go last week!) Can anyone break Tara and Joey’s winning streak? What adventures await these teams in the next country?

On tonight’s episode, “Double U-Turn Ahead,” the race continues in Milan and Lake Como, Italy. Several teams come together and target one set of Racers at the double U-turn.

Find out who gets U-turned and who goes home tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Catch, The Big Bang Theory, The Great Indoors, Life in Pieces, Superstore, The Blacklist, MasterChef: Junior, Kicking & Screaming, and Riverdale.

Megan’s Choice

Grey’s Anatomy finally had Meredith and Riggs hook up again, and it was perfectly messy as expected. They were on a flight together when everything went sideways, but thankfully when everything ended well, Meredith agreed to meet him at a hotel. Now the next step is to tell Maggie about the relationship and also see how that goes. Maggie would never work with Riggs, but I’m sure she’s not going to take it well at all…but time will tell.

On tonight’s episode, “Don’t Stop Me Now,” Bailey and April work to fix things between Richard and Catherine. Meanwhile, Eliza continues to pursue Arizona, and one of Alex’s previous patients returns to Grey Sloan.

To see it Arizona finally gives into Eliza, tune in to ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching MasterChef: Junior, Chicago Med, Kicking & Screaming, The Amazing Race, and The Catch.
