If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/28/17

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!

Tonight is the conclusion of the 5-episode “Sanctuary City” arc on Major Crimes. It’s been an eventful arc so far with surprises happening every episode. Last week, we not only found out Sharon had been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy (and I loved how she turned Rusty’s question about what he can do to help into him agreeing to a protection detail! LOL), but Lucas’s drug-addicted father was found dead in his office. Everyone believes it was an overdose. Was it self-inflicted – and if so, then on purpose or accident? Was it murder? I think the other two doctors or whoever they are in his practice have been hiding something, so…maybe it was them? And we learned from the remaining two boys that Lucas had taken them to a limo and then they’d been sprayed with something that knocked them out and made their throats hurt, and then they woke in Mexico. Chloroform was found on their clothes, so maybe? But they were also found with opioids in their bags in Mexico, so…I’m still as confused as ever.

Tonight wraps up this arc, thank goodness. It’s been a fun and interesting case, but I honestly have no idea what the truth is, and I’m ready to move on!

On tonight’s episode, “Sanctuary City: Part 5,” as the case of the St. Joseph’s Three leads to its unexpected conclusion, Commander Sharon Raydor attempts to balance the case, her family arriving, and her fast approaching wedding to Lt. Andy Flynn.

Find out the truth to all the unanswered questions tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, Chopped, MasterChef Canada, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, & Chicago Med.

My pick for tonight is actually DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, although tonight on The Flash & DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, we’ll be picking up halfway through the “Crisis on EarthX” crossover, which is one of the most ambitious ongoing television crossovers ever. But each of these shows have a continuity of their own, so where exactly did the “legends” leave off last week?? Well…

They popped into the Vietnam War to investigate a time anomaly in the form of a beast in the jungle performing brutal murders like some X-Files creature of the week. But no, this was no Grey alien, it was Gorilla Grodd, kicking ass and recruiting a VC army. To complicate it all further, Rory got matched up with his own dad’s platoon. That interaction may have led to alternations in the timeline. We’ll have to wait and see. What it culminated in, however, was Grodd stealing the Waverider and trying to dip out to the dawn of time to kill humanity itself. The Legends prevailed, and Grodd was saved only by Damian Dahrk, who timeported him to the future for a sit down.

Since then, though? The team has been in two episodes of this mega crossover. The first one was almost a musical version of Supergirl that led to an alt-dimension version of multiple heroes manifested as Nazis that popped into Earth-1 to eff everything up in the middle of the Flash’s wedding. What was more insane – that battle or Kara’s sick songbird performance just before?? That huge battle ended with Supergirl punching the SS version of herself in the vag, literally. Works for me. Maybe a little too well.

In the second installation, we saw the Nazi version of all the best Arrowverse heroes chase after some “Prism” they were after. We also learned their Arrow is married to their Kara. By the end of some awwwwwwwwesome battles, all the good guys are in an Earth-X concentration camp, except for Iris & Felicity. They looked fucked, but I know better.

On tonight’s episodes of The Flash & DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, “Crisis on Earth-X, Parts 3 & 4,” Barry and Iris’s wedding brings the gang together, but things go awry when villains from Earth-X attack the ceremony. All of the superheroes band together with help from their super friends like Citizen Cold, The Ray, Felicity Smoak, Iris West, and Alex Danvers to take on their most formidable villains yet. Earth’s mightiest heroes — Green Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, and White Canary — lead their teams into battle to save the world.

Catch the final two episodes in this crazy crossover even tonight on The CW starting at 8/7c.

Other than this, I’ll need to watch part three of this saga in The Flash first and then head over for some Jake & Amy melodramedy on Brooklyn Nine-Nine!

It made me incredibly happy that Chicago Med returned last week and even happier with where we found a few of our favorite characters.

Last week’s episode found April and Dr. Choi dating as well as Dr. Halstead admitting to Dr. Manning that he still loved her. She admitted the same, and they kissed. It was perfection. Unfortunately, what wasn’t perfection was how Drs. Reese and Charles have been disagreeing on cases – especially on the case of the patient who shot Dr. Charles. Dr. Reese was convinced the patient needed to go to jail, but Dr. Charles believed he needed to be sent to a mental facility. This new tension between them is definitely going to cause some trouble.

On tonight’s episode, “Nothing to Fear,” Dr. Manning goes to extremely measures to help a fearful pregnant woman whose baby is severely underdeveloped. April is angered by Dr. Choi when he uses their personal relationship as leverage to convince a patient of a risky procedure. As Dr. Rhodes attempts to balance his personal and professional life, it appears the stress of his current situation may have caused him to make a huge mistake. Dr. Charles and Dr. Reese continue to disagree about their psych patients.

To find out if April and Dr. Choi can start to maneuver their way through this new relationship, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Lethal Weapon, This Is Us, The Mick, Chopped, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
