If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/23/17

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!

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is always so much fun, and last week was a prime example. Who else loved meeting Capt. Holt’s mother? LOL The Honorable Laverne Holt was basically just Raymond Holt as a slightly shorter, slightly older female. They talked the same, thought the same, and reacted the same to everything. Really hysterical. Jake got the honor (only after Amy let her nerves and excitement get the better of her and reacted to the chance to help by dorking out…) of helping when Mrs. Holt’s apartment was robbed. He and Capt. Holt figured out it was robbed while she was at Wine Club, and they went undercover at the next meeting. When the apartment that Jake gave the address of to the hostess was broken into, he realized it was the hostess and her boyfriend, and they were arrested. Of course, the best story line for that episode was Capt. Holt realizing his mother was dating and she hadn’t told him. He reacted more strongly than we’ve ever seen him – stopping the car in the middle of the road, getting out, and calmly walking away. LOL The side stories of Terry, Charles, and Rosa remodeling the breakroom was great (what the heck was their remodel, anyway? Crazy… LOL), as was Scully and Hitchcock’s reaction to it. Needless to say, seeing them rubbing all over the new couch and stuff was…vaguely disturbing!

Then in the second episode, Jake and Rosa got involved in a case with their idol, Lieutenant Melanie Hawkins. Unfortunately, the show dealt a huge shocker to Jake (& presumably Rosa, although we didn’t see her reaction), right after they were invited to be on her team, when they learned that Lieutenant Hawkins is a dirty cop. Instead of actually looking for the bank robbers like they are supposed to be…they ARE the bank robbers. Eek! My favorite part of that episode, though, was Scully and Hitchcock fighting like little boys after Scully blew off Hitchcock for their weekly brunch or whatever in order to spend time with his new girlfriend. They had a ranch dressing fight (ew. LOL), called each other names, and basically acted like babies. Nothing Charles or Terry could do would make a dent in their fighting. Finally, Gina came in and said they were acting like animals so they needed to be treated like animals. When she yelled and clapped her hands at them, then gave them treats after they apologized, it worked perfectly. LOL

So now that Jake and Rosa know Hawkins is dirty, will they try to take her down in tonight’s double-episode finale? Of course they will. You couldn’t expect anything less, could you? Things won’t go as planned, I promise. I’ve seen both episodes, and they truly live up to the fun and excitement, as well as the jaw-dropping moments of shock and surprise that Brooklyn Nine-Nine likes to fling at the viewers on their finales. LOL

On tonight’s episodes, “The Bank Job/Crime & Punishment,” after discovering a dangerous secret, Jake and Rosa call for back-up from Holt and Pimento (guest star Jason Mantzoukas). Meanwhile, Boyle objects to Gina’s new boyfriend (guest star Ryan Phillipe). Then, Jake and Rosa are framed for a crime they didn’t commit, it’s up to the Nine-Nine to find a way to bust them out. Gina Gershon also guest stars.

Find out what happens with Jake and Rosa and why Boyle objects to Gina’s new boyfriend tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, Great News, Prison Break, & Chopped.

Tonight, the third season of The Flash comes to an end. Last week, there was just 24 hours left until Savitar was supposed to murder Iris, and Barry had finally come up with a plan to prevent it, but it would require the Dominator crystal, which was locked away in the ARGUS facility. When Lyla refused to hand over the crystal, Barry jumped to 19th-century Siberia to bring back Captain Cold to help him steal it. The heist got a bit complicated when Barry and Snart discovered that King Shark was guarding the crystal, but they still managed to obtain it. Meanwhile, Joe and Wally took Iris to Earth 2 to hide out with Harry in hopes that Savitar wouldn’t find Iris there, but Savitar tricked HR into revealing Iris’s location. Unfortunately, the events played out as foretold – Savitar stabbed Iris, and she died in Barry’s arms.

Is Iris really dead, or will the team find some way to bring her back or reset time? Will Barry get his revenge and eliminate Savitar once and for all? And is there any hope of saving Caitlin, or has she permanently become the evil Killer Frost? I’m looking forward to seeing how the season ends and what they set up for next season. I just hope we get introduced to a new villain who isn’t some sort of evil speedster, as we’ve already had three seasons of that!

On tonight’s finale, “Finish Line,” with nothing left to lose, Barry takes on Savitar as Season 3 ends.

Find out if Barry comes out on top over Savitar tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Great News, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Prison Break, iZombie, and The Americans.
