If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/11/17

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!

We’re at the end of season 10 of The Big Bang Theory. It’s been a big year for the characters, from their relationships to the work the boys did for the military. One big change was Sheldon moving out of the apartment and living with Amy across the hall in Penny’s old place. Unfortunately, now Sheldon is on his own for the summer, since last week, Amy left to go to Princeton for a position as a visiting researcher. I was amazed at how maturely Sheldon handled it. Amy was excited to go but was reluctant about leaving him, but together they decided it was something she couldn’t pass up. Of course, we’ll see how well that works out when he’s either living on his own or shacking up with Leonard and Penny again!

Also last week, Sheldon, Leonard, and Howard showed up at the lab, only to find it completely empty. The military had gotten what they wanted from the boys and taken control of the project with no warning. My favorite part of the episode, though, had to be when they got back to the apartment building, walked into an empty apartment, and thought they’d been wiped out completely, that the military was erasing their lives. Come to find out they were just on the wrong floor. Too funny that the apartment looked exactly like theirs without stuff in it! The whole season’s been fun, and I’m sad to see it end, but we have a lot more of the show coming over the next couple of years, so there’s something to look forward to!

On tonight’s episode, “The Long Distance Dissonance,” the gang is concerned when Sheldon’s former admirer, Dr. Ramona Nowitzki (guest star Riki Lindhome), resurfaces while Amy is away at Princeton.

Find out how Sheldon reacts to Ramon’s reappearance tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef: Junior, Chicago Med, Beat Bobby Flay, Farmers’ Market Flip, & Impractical Jokers.

For the past couple of weeks, Life in Pieces has been leading us toward Colleen and Matt’s destination wedding. However, last week they got sucked into the fun and greediness of accepting vouchers for overbooked flights (how timely!) and ended up missing the last flight that would get them to their wedding on time. Meanwhile, Greg and Jen made a lot of enemies in the air when they brought their young daughter on her first plane ride. Heather, Tim, and the kids ended up getting stranded after bailing on their airport limo ride from hell. And Joan and John tried to smuggle their dog – who was to serve as the ring-bearer at the wedding – onto the plane.

Who will make it to Mexico on time, and will there even be a wedding?! Lately the series has seemed a bit more serialized than when it first started. The stories in each episode play off one another as well as week to week. I’m really enjoying this series and can’t wait to see what happens in tonight’s season finale!

On tonight’s season finale, “Poison Fire Teats Universe,” Colleen and Matt question whether they will ever get married when they miss all the flights to Mexico for their wedding; and Greg and Jen get into trouble when they share a cookie with a fellow plane passenger who has a severe allergic reaction to it. In other events, Joan and John rush their dog to the vet after he swallows Matt’s wedding ring; and the Hughes family moves into Tyler and Clementine’s tiny house when a fire breaks out in their kitchen.

See if Colleen and Matt actually make it down the aisle tonight on CBS at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, The Amazing Race, The Blacklist, MasterChef: Junior, and Riverdale.

I was a flurry of emotions last week watching Chicago Med, from the foreshadowing of relationships to everyone fighting over Robin’s mental health. It was a crazy episode. Robin was admitted to the psych ward against her own will by her dad, but Dr. Charles felt he had no other option in order to save her. Unfortunately, Dr. Rhodes thought differently, and he brought in lawyers to get her released, which eventually led to a disaster at Rhodes’s condo. Robin had another hallucination incident, which had her swinging a broom at Rhodes and then locking herself outside on the balcony, where she was left as the episode ends. I don’t know why he chased her, because she was really confused, and now I fear for her safety and the possibility she could jump right off the balcony.

I’m interested to see where the relationship between Dr. Halstead and Dr. Manning goes, because those two are definitely heading towards hooking up – sooner rather than later. I hope it happens in the finale tonight. If it doesn’t, at least we’ll have next season to look forward to! NBC just renewed this show, as well as Chicago PD & Chicago Fire. No word yet on newbie Chicago Justice.

On tonight’s episode, “Love Hurts,” a hotshot doctor arrives at Chicago Med, causing competition for Dr. Rhodes. Dr. Halstead and Dr. Manning work together to diagnose a Syrian refugee without a medical record. When Robin is admitted back into the hospital for more complications, Dr. Reese takes a different approach to her treatment. Distracted from work because of Robin’s worsening case, Dr. Charles is challenged by Goodwin, and Noah hosts a graduation party that brings everyone together.

To see how this season ends, tune in to NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Grey’s Anatomy, MasterChef: Junior, The Catch, and The Amazing Race.
