If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/30/17

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!

Last week’s NCIS: LA found the team (mostly Sam & Callen) working with Hetty’s friends/former colleagues Retired Admiral AJ Chegwidden and Admiral Sterling Bridges while tracking a fourth friend/former colleague, Retired Captain Charles Langston. Langston pretended to be a homeless man asking for money on the street in stalled traffic, and all seemed calm until he got to a car and freaked out, smashing in the window and then getting into the car and holding the former driver/now passenger hostage. The victim ended up being a guy in charge at the veteran’s hospital who treated the veterans like dirt and didn’t do what he should have been doing for support. Langston didn’t kill him, just left him tied up for Kensi and Deeks to eventually find. Then he went to the VA hospital and donated all the money he’d gathered and had stockpiled, ranting about how all the people needed to be seen. In the end, it turned out the REAL bad guys they all ended up chasing had stolen a bunch of gold bars Hetty and the men had been set to use to pay off a ransom, but then it wasn’t needed. So it’s been sitting in a secure safe ever since…until the bad guys figured out where it was and stole it.

We also learned more about Granger, who was another of the colleagues involved in their group. It was nice to see them thinking about him! But my favorite moment had to be in the pawn shop, where Deeks saw a wedding veil and told Kensi she would look beautiful in it. She froze and then teared up a bit, and when pressed, she admitted that since her father wasn’t alive, she’d planned to ask Granger to walk her down the aisle. It was a very, very touching moment – and I’d love to see them go back to that moment when Kensi and Deeks get married.

We’re coming up to the final eps of the season. This current story line wraps tonight in time for the last two episodes, which will focus on Sam, his wife, and Tahir Kalid. How the rest of the team will play into the Sam-focused story line, I have no idea, but I’m sure they will. Will Deeks be haunted once again by Internal Affairs at the LAPD? Will we get a Deeks/Kensi proposal? What about Callen? Will we see Anna again? Maybe we’ll get some answers to some of those tonight…

On tonight’s episode, “Golden Days,” a gold heist investigation has the NCIS team working with Hetty’s former Vietnam War colleagues, Retired Admiral AJ Chegwidden (John M. Jackson), Admiral Sterling Bridges (James Remar), and Retired Captain Charles Langston (Carl Lumbly).

See if the team can help recover the stolen gold tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Little Big Shots, Chicago Justice, Iron Chef Gauntlet, Match Game, & Iron Chef Eats.

Last week’s episode of Chicago Justice was one of the best of the season so far. Stone was trying to prosecute the killer of a young girl, who was shot by accident when a gang hit took place. When a gun that was involved in the shooting showed up, it made them have to look elsewhere for the killer, meaning the man on trial was innocent. Stone also made history when he won a ruling by a judge to shut off the phones of gang members off, on the grounds that they were using the phones for violent purposes. In the end, they found the killer, but in an unfortunate turn of events, the man who helped solve the case was shot and killed by the gang for being a snitch.

On tonight’s episode, “AQD,” when an anti-environmentalist Alderman is killed during a vicious hit-and-run, Antonio and Nagel go all out to track down the driver. But instead of this being an organized hit to save the environment, it turns out the driver is a frantic mother desperate to save her kidnapped daughter. When Valdez discovers the mother was victim of a scam, the legal question becomes complicated: who is responsible for the Alderman’s death? The mother trying to save her daughter? Or the perpetrators of the scam?

Find out what’s going on with this mother tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS: LA, Iron Chef Gauntlet, Guy’s Grocery Games, and Little Big Shots.
