If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/11/17

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 the first season of NBC’s travel-reality series Better Late Than Never, which found actors William Shatner and Henry Winkler and sports stars Terry Bradshaw and George Foreman traveling across Asia with comedian Jeff Dye. The guys didn’t have their usual celebrity creature comforts as they immersed themselves into new cultures, trying strange new foods and activities, checking things off their bucket lists. It was a lot of fun watching these old strangers bicker with one another but ultimately become the best of friends. And having the younger comedian tagging along as their sidekick helps to balance out the show and bring another perspective to the group.

Tonight, NBC is giving viewers a preview of the second season, which has the group getting back together, this time to head out on a European adventure. The second season will find this ragtag group of celebrities heading to Munich, Berlin, Lithuania, Sweden, Barcelona, Madrid, and Morocco. Even though it has been two years since their original trip, the chemistry between these guys instantly returns when they reunite at the airport. I didn’t realize how much I had missed this series until I checked out tonight’s episode – this show is so much fun and has me constantly laughing out loud! After tonight’s special preview premiere, the season will continue after the new year.

On tonight’s episode, “Munich,” the first stop is Munich, where the guys immerse themselves in the culture, customs, and traditions of the city, including participating in Oktoberfest. They also go to the Bavarian Alps, where they recreate “The Hills Are Alive” moment from The Sound of Music.

See the guys reunite and head to Munich tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Superior Donuts, Lucifer, The Gifted, and Ill Behaviour.

If you enjoy this series, I’d also recommend checking out the Netflix original series Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father, which was released at the end of September, as it has a very similar vibe of a young comedian taking his elderly father on a trip across Southeast Asia.

Last week’s Scorpion was one of my favorite episodes of this season so far for several reasons. While Cabe and Sly stayed back at the garage to prep for Cabe’s trial, Paige, Walter, Happy, & Toby went to help move some big boulders in advance of any rock slides and to prove to the people they were selling Happy’s new and improved wench that it worked as she said it did. They were just finishing up when they saw a small plane crash in the distance. They found a guy and his daughter, who was unconscious with a broken leg, and the guy said his son had parachuted out when they started having problems. What a joke that turned out to be! The guy and his daughter were bad guys and his “son” was a bunch of money they’d stolen. No surprise, our team was able to save themselves and capture the two before the police could get there. Happy was using that time to talk to the daughter and find out if her father had influenced her or if she was just naturally predisposed to doing bad things – since she was worried about her and Toby’s potential offspring being predisposed to any bad habits or choices that she and Toby and their families had made. It was sweet to see her worry and sweet to see him calm her.

The other big story was Cabe and Sylvester. Cabe learned that Sly and the others had been building a supercomputer tracker to track Mark Collins. They suddenly got a flurry of alerts that seemed to be leading the two of them right to him. Unfortunately, Collins was setting them up, somehow knowing about the tracking they were doing. Cabe is slowly losing hope, but Sly was doing his best to buck him and help him face reality while still doing it with his fingers crossed. Tonight is going to be exciting because it’s finally his trial. I have no idea what will happen, but I can’t imagine him going to prison – at least not long-term!

On tonight’s episode, “Who Let the Dog Out (‘Cause Now It’s Stuck in a Cistern),” as Team Scorpion anxiously awaits the verdict of Cabe’s trial which could send him to prison, they focus their nervous energy on trying to save a dog stuck in a cistern.

Find out what happens to the dog and in Cabe’s trial tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Great Christmas Light Fight, Man With a Plan, Holiday Baking Championship, Superior Donuts, 9JKL, Cash Cab, & Christmas Cookie Challenge.

Last week’s Lucifer had me on the edge of my seat as the team raced to find the Sinnerman. They finally found him, and while Lucifer ended up getting locked up by him, in the end he was captured. Unfortunately, Lucifer wasn’t able to make him confess his desire because the Sinnerman gauged his eyes out before Lucifer could. It was an intense scene. On another note, Lucifer seems to be picking up on the sexual tension between Chloe and the captain. I’m not happy with that and want to see it fizzle out quickly.

On tonight’s fall finale, “The Sin Bin,” with the Sinnerman in custody, Lucifer is prepared to go to any length to get his devil face back. Meanwhile, Trixie is introduced to Charlotte and questions the relationship she has with her father.

To see if Lucifer can get his face back, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, The Gifted, Kevin Can Wait, Man With a Plan, and Scorpion.
