If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/20/18

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, the fourth season of ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat comes to a close. In last week’s episode, Louis was initially thrilled to buy back Kenny Rogers’ stake in Cattleman’s Ranch. However, he soon started to doubt his decision and stressed over the fact that he was now solely responsible for the success or failure of the business. Jessica flew in her psychic from D.C., Madam Xing, to try to help Louis overcome his anxiety. But this just made him even more stressed, causing him to break a tooth. So Louis went to see Marvin, and the laughing gas in the dentist chair finally calmed him nerves but also caused him to have some strange delusions. Meanwhile, Evan announced that he was giving up Live with Regis and Kathie Lee for Lent, recording the episodes on VHS to watch after Lent was over. This annoyed Eddie and Emery, who weren’t giving up anything. So the brothers decided to try to trick Evan into breaking his Lenten sacrifice by tempting him with made-up stories of all the crazy things that happened on the talk show that week.

Even in its fourth season, this series continues to feel…well, fresh and continues to make me laugh each week. The series has done an excellent job of not only maintaining the fun character quirks, traits, and relationships but also allowing these characters to develop and grow over time. Jessica, who will always remain my favorite, has definitely learned to let her hair down and just roll with punches every once in a while, even if things aren’t necessarily happening the way she would like them to. Eddie seems to have changed the most this season, becoming much more responsible and mature. I don’t know if the series will be back for another season, but I really hope so, and I am really looking forward to tonight’s season finale.

On tonight’s season finale, “King in the North,” Honey plans a relaxing vacation before the baby arrives, but Jessica turns the trip into a quest to get Stephen King to endorse her novel; Louis scrambles to make Grandma Huang feel welcome; Eddie and Nicole rebel against the school’s dress code.

See how Eddie and Nicole rebel tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, black-ish, For the People, LA to Vegas, The Mick, Black Lightning, and The Detour.

Megan’s Choice

I really enjoyed the premiere of For the People, which I was surprised by because I was prepared to think it was terrible. It was well-written, and the characters have depth with room to grow. Of course I enjoy Sandra the most because she has a strong moral compass and she’s fiery. The case she lost with the kid who was tricked into carrying a bomb by the FBI was heartbreaking, seeing as it was quite obviously entrapment and the boy was so young. I look forward to seeing more hard cases like that one but hope we see the defense win once in a while.

On tonight’s episode, “Rahowa,” the six young lawyers are even more determined to bring home wins and prove they are worthy of the Mother Court, as they tackle their second round of cases. Jay must set aside his personal feelings as he defends a client with controversial beliefs, and Sandra’s idealism leads to an important lesson from Ms. Krissman.

To give this new legal drama a chance, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Rise, and Chicago Med.
