If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/21/17

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, FOX kicks off the fourth season of the gritty Batman drama Gotham. As the third season came to a close, there was a bit of a power struggle, with Barbara, Penguin, and even a resurrected Fish Mooney, all looking to gain control of the city. The Tetch virus was running through the city, and whichever one of them located Strange’s antidote first would control Gotham. Jim Gordon had become infected with the virus, so he, too, was after the cure to save himself and Lee. With Harvey’s help, he managed to procure two vials of the antidote, but Lee was less than thrilled to receive the cure — she had been enjoying the sense of power the virus had given her. Meanwhile, Bruce was off on his own journey of self-discovery, being brainwashed by Ra’s al Ghul. And Penguin was a bit distracted by his rivalry with Ed Nygma, which ended with Mr. Freeze putting The Riddler on ice. Penguin placed his frozen rival in his tavern as a centerpiece as he debated the most advantageous way to make use of a thawed Nygma.

The first half of fourth season is subtitled “A Dark Knight.” That means we’ll finally be seeing Bruce don a costume and heading out into the streets of Gotham to dole out vigilante justice. It looks like we’re in for another exciting season with the introduction of some more familiar villains, such as Scarecrow. I’m looking forward to seeing how the season plays out as Bruce finally becomes the masked hero we’ve been waiting for!

On tonight’s fourth season premiere, “Pax Penuina,” Gordon fears Jonathan Crane is still alive and back in Gotham when the Scarecrow’s signature MO is used in a series of robberies. Meanwhile, Penguin’s “licensing” of crime in the city backfires during the grand opening of his new Iceberg Lounge; and, in the aftermath of his encounter with Ra’s Al Ghul, Bruce begins his vigilante watch.

Don’t miss tonight’s premiere on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Orville, Flipping Out, Nathan for You, and The Guest Book.

A couple of days ago, I caught up on the previous four episodes of The Guest Book. I laughed more and more every episode. Some of them are just pure comedy, while one especially was sad and didn’t even end on a completely happy note. I loved the one with Sabrina (her character from Raising Hope — I mean the woman who was addicted to meth — and her boyfriend-turned-fiance. The bear getting amped up from the drugs was hysterical. But the episode with the man who suffers from OCD and maybe like Asperger syndrome was just sad. I mean, some of it was funny, but overall, I felt bad for him when he figured out his crush only thought of him as a friend. Overall, the show is fun to watch and well worth binge-watching the previous episodes before watching the final two of the season. Thankfully it’s been renewed for a second season!

On tonight’s episode, “Story Nine,” Jacob (Sebastian Schier), an Amish kid on Rumspringa, follows the signs to “God’s Country” and ends up at the cabin, where he is convinced God is directing him to meet the love of his life in any way possible.

Find out who Jacob thinks is the love of his life tonight on TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, & Beat Bobby Flay.
