If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/16/17

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!

I really enjoyed last week’s S.W.A.T. because the case-of-the-week was really interesting. Because Street went off book during a training exercise, he was “killed” and his team lost, which meant when four inmates escaped during transport, the two worst offenders were given to Mumford’s team to find, while Hondo’s team had to go after a local bad guy and a weird guy who was arrested flying back into the US with illegal turtles strapped to his legs. Mumford’s team quickly found the lessor bad guy of their two, but then Hondo’s team found their two, and the race was on to find the worst of the four…who was a violent criminal Jessica had helped put away. She explained to Hondo that a woman had testified, the only witness who would – and her son suffered for it. The word “rata” (Spanish for rat) was carved into his back.

Thankfully, Hondo and his team took the guy down after he kidnapped a 16-year-old young girl he said was “his.” Not only that, but the cousin who helped him escape went after the female witness and her kids, and Street and Chris took him down. The only thing that was a bit too silly for me was the way Hondo took the guy down – by standing outside a helicopter as it hovered outside the cabin the guy holed up in with his kidnap victim.

I’ve seen tonight’s episode as well as next week’s already, and I have to say, Street is growing on me. Even at the beginning of last week’s episode, I wasn’t sure about him, although I did like how he had learned and grown a little by the end. We learn more about him and his life in tonight’s episode, which is a great one!

On tonight’s episode, “Pamilya,” newcomer Jim Street jeopardizes his spot on Hondo’s team when he agrees to do a favor for his incarcerated mother that endangers his SWAT career. Also, the SWAT team searches for the ruthless mastermind behind a drug trafficking ring that forces immigrants to be mules. Sherilyn Fenn guest stars as Karen Street.

Find out what Street does for his mother tonight CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, & Beat Bobby Flay.

Last week, Grey’s Anatomy aired its milestone 300th episode, and it was loaded with Easter eggs for longtime fans of the series – this was evident right from the beginning when the new class of interns were hanging out in the tunnel having a conversation in a scene that felt identical to one from first season. The big case of the week involved a roller coaster car that had derailed at a local fair, trapping two patients who looked like dead ringers for George and Christina. To add to this, their pregnant friend looked just like Izzy, and she constantly used the word “seriously.” Meanwhile, it was the night of the Harper Avery awards, and Meredith was supposed to be there to find out if she won, but she didn’t want to leave her patient. Webber and Bailey set up a video feed in one of the operating rooms so Meredith could watch. As Jackson gave an acceptance speech on her behalf, mentioning all of the people Meredith had lost in her life, Meredith could see her mother Ellis smiling in the gallery above the OR.

I really enjoyed last week’s episode, as it was a great tribute for the fans that was both extremely fun but also quite heartfelt. I’m looking forward to tonight’s midseason finale, wondering if we are going to be left with any big cliffhangers to ponder about while the show is off the air for a couple months.

On tonight’s midseason finale, “Out of Nowhere,” a hacker compromises the hospital’s computer system, causing monitors, phones, labs, and patient files to all go down. As technology fails them, chaos erupts, and the doctors are forced to get creative in their methods to treat the patients.

Check out how creative the doctors get tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Life in Pieces, Gotham, The Orville, Van Helsing, Ghost Wars, and Chrisley Knows Best.

The Big Bang Theory has been one of my favorite comedies for the last few years, so I was very excited when I found out that there would be a spin-off centered around Sheldon. Young Sheldon didn’t disappoint at all and has quickly proven that this is a fantastic writing team. Sheldon as a child is hilarious, and I also understand so many of his little idiosyncrasies because I see a few of them in one of my daughters.

Last week’s episode, Sheldon’s father had a mild heart attack and ended up in the hospital. Grandma (Meemaw) came to watch the kids, but when she was asleep the three kids stole her car and Sheldon’s older brother drove them to the hospital. They all worked it out in the end, but Sheldon was hilarious in the back seat with a football helmet on because he was terrified of his brother’s driving. I’m looking forward to seeing more of this crazy family’s interactions.

On tonight’s epiosde, “A Therapist, a Comic Book, and a Breakfast Sausage,” after choking on a breakfast sausage, Sheldon wrestles with his fear of solid foods and discovers comic books for the first time.

To see how the love of comic books started for Sheldon, tune in to CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, S.W.A.T., Beat Bobby Flay, and Grey’s Anatomy.
