If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/17/17

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!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, AMC kicks off the fun new comedy Loaded. The series follows four guys who become millionaires overnight thanks to the massively popular mobile game they created. While the money gives the guys a whole new outlook on life, it also opens up a lot of new problems. Leon (Samuel Anderson, Doctor Who) is the leader of the group and wants to take some time to enjoy their new windfall, Josh (Jim Howick, Broadchurch) is the serious and practical one who’s looking toward the future, Ewan (Jonny Sweet, Babylon) is the socially awkward programmer, and Watto (Nick Helm, Uncle) is the wild one who just wants to have fun. With their company growing, the guys now find themselves dealing with new employee issues and the demands of American investor Casey (Mary McCormack, In Plain Sight). The series also stars Aimee-Ffion Edwards (Skins, Peaky Blinders), Lolly Adefope (Rovers), and Scarlett Alice Johnson (Pramface).

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere. This series is a lot of fun and totally feels like the UK equivalent to Silicon Valley — you can even map most of these characters to their SV counterparts. This should nicely fill the techie TV show void left by SV’s season finale and will nicely lead up to next month’s final season premiere of Halt and Catch Fire.

On tonight’s premiere, “Lawsuit,” four friends become tech millionaires after selling their hit iPhone game “Cat Factory.”

Meet the four newly rich friends tonight on AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Superhuman, Will, and Daytime Divas.

Jenny’s Choice

I’ve been enjoying So You Think You Can Dance again this season. I’m so glad it’s back to the regular dancers and there’ll be All-Stars coming. I’m also quite enjoying the judges so far. I love having Mary Murphy back, and Vanessa Hudgins has made a surprising and welcome addition to the judging panel. I feel like she knows what she’s talking about and really makes some good notes.

This week starts the Academy, and I’m not entirely sure what that’ll be like. From the preview, it seems like the All-Stars are working with all of them in groups to whittle them down, similar to previous seasons, but then there was something about one of them wanting a dancer on their team… Since I can’t find out more information anywhere, it’ll be a surprise for all of us tonight. I do know that I’m particularly excited to see Gaby (Tap, Season 12 winner), Marko (Jazz, Season 8 contestant), Allison (Contemporary, Season 2 contestant), Jenna (Ballroom, Season 10 contestant), Cyrus (Animation, Season 9 contestant), & Fik-Shun (Hip-Hop, Season 10 winner), and they’re joined by fellow All-Stars Comfort (Hip-Hop, Season 4 contestant), Jasmine (Contemporary, Season 10 contestant), Paul (Ballroom, Season 10 contestant & winner of SYTYCD Armenia), & Robert (Contemporary, Season 7 contestant).

On tonight’s episode, “Academy Week #1,” the first round of the “Academy” callbacks begin as the talented dancers vie for a spot in the Top 10.

Find out who continues to move forward tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, Dessert Games, Texas Cake House, & Whose Line Is It Anyway?.
