If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/12/17

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 last episode of NCIS: New Orleans. A group of street kids were pulling cons and stealing from tourists. But they stole a bag from petty officer who then followed them, only to be stopped by the “leader” of the street kids, the oldest of the bunch, who had a gun. Fortunately the kids didn’t kill him, but the bad guys (who were after diamonds they’d hidden in the petty officer’s camera) who did also killed a couple of the street kids, which was really sad. Percy & Gregorio got close to two of the kids, taking them home with them for the night so they didn’t have to send them into the system. And poor Pride is trying so hard to play by the rules, but then something crops up (like trying to help the kids), where he feels it best to go off-book, and it gets him into trouble, even though things work out for the best. He just can’t seem to win!

On tonight’s episode, “Mirror Mirror,” after Rita Deveraux tells Pride that Hamilton is about to make a deal to get out of prison, Pride and the team rehash the Clearwater case in hopes of locating his mystery partner and spoiling his bargaining chip. Chelsea Field, Steven Weber, & Stacy Keach guest star.

See if Pride can once again take down Hamilton tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, NCIS, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Major Crimes, Chicago Med, & Chopped.

Tonight is the one-hour fall finale of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Last week was the show’s 99th episode, and most of the precinct flew to L.A. for the funeral of the former chief. While they were there, Holt learned he was in the running to become the next Chief Commissioner of the NYPD, but he would need to be back in New York early Monday morning for his interview. On the way to the airport, Holt took a sight-seeing excursion to the Nakatomi Plaza so that Jake could live out his Die Hard fantasies, but this caused the group to miss their return flight. So they embarked on a Planes, Trains and Automobiles style adventure to try to get back to NYC in time for Holt’s interview. Among other things, this involved an exploding RV, a visit with some estranged members of the Boyle family, and a cargo plane. The whole trip, Amy tried to prove that she could be laidback, but it wasn’t until she gave up this facade and went into extreme-planning mode that she was able to save the day. Meanwhile, Terry was upset about losing his first-class flight and was obsessed with the single mint he was able to steal from the first-class lounge. And Rosa revealed to Charles that she was bisexual and currently dating a woman.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine always makes me laugh, but no matter how wacky things get, the writers still manage to add a little bit of ongoing story and character development to each episode. Last week, we saw that the Captain was trying to sabotage his own interview for fear of being forced to compromise his new position due to the deal he had made to get Jake and Rosa out of prison. Amy tried to fight against her over-organized nature but realized that’s what she’s good at, and Jake loves that about her. Plus, things took an interesting turn for Rosa’s personal life.

On tonight’s first episode, “Game Night,” Rosa begs Jake to help her break some big news to her parents, but her plan is thrown off when they wrongly assume the two are dating. Then, in “The Favor,” Seamus Murphy returns to redeem the favor Holt owes him, and the precinct searches for a loophole that will allow Holt to uphold his end of the bargain without breaking the law.

Find out if the gang can save Holt’s butt tonight on the 1-hour fall finale on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, and Chrisley Knows Best.

Chicago Med only returned a few weeks ago, but tonight is the fall finale, and I’m not ready for it yet. Last week’s episode was full of a lot of personal growth by the doctors, including some interesting foreshadowing concerning Dr Rhodes and Dr. Becker, who are headed towards a friendship – or quite possibly a sexual relationship. Speaking of relationships, watching Natalie and Will get closer and closer has been fantastic, and I am super happy about that.

Dr. Charles has been pushing a lot of people away while he’s been dealing with his shooting. It would appear that he’s handling it well, but beneath it all he seems as though he’s being unreasonable. I’m concerned for his judgment-making skills when it comes to patients, but I think we are going to see it come to a conclusion shortly.

On tonight’s episode, “Naughty or Nice,” Dr. Charles learns a troubling fact about the man who shot him. Dr. Rhodes and Dr. Bekker come to an agreement during a complicated surgery. Will and Natalie are trapped by legal ethics when an unfaithful husband refuses to tell his wife about his inconclusive Zika test. Meanwhile, April and Noah discover working together isn’t always easy, while Goodwin continues to argue with the board over hospital costs after an avoidable patient death.

To find out what Charles learns, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Bull, NCIS: New Orleans, The Voice, Lethal Weapon, NCIS, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
