If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/21/18

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!

Oh snap! Last week’s Chicago PD might have been the most perfectly titled episode to date: “Breaking Point.” The case itself was okay – a prominent alderman was killed, and of course the team solved the case. But the bigger story in my opinion was when Woods came after Olinsky. Apparently a hair of Olinsky’s was found on the dead body of Voight’s son’s killer, and a witness saw a woman in the area as well. Woods, of course, is trying to get to Voight through Olinsky, and it seems like Olinsky is going to hold steady…but when he went to Voight with the news about the witness being credible and said they should talk to Erin to get their stories straight, he may have run into Voight’s “breaking point” in terms of his loyalty to Olinsky: Erin. He said no, they didn’t want to do that yet, or something to that effect. And right then is when Olinsky realized that if it came down to Erin or him for Voight’s loyalty, he would not come out on top. Voight better do something quick if he wants to keep Woods from hearing the whole story from Olinsky!

I’m so excited about tonight’s episode. We get to learn more about Upton’s past, AND Bosch…I mean Titus Weller is guest starring! I love him, and it makes the time until the new season of Bosch starts next month!

On tonight’s episode, “Ghosts,” Upton brings back an old undercover identity to help take down a meth ring spearheaded by a former criminal contact. And with pressure from Woods mounting, Voight calls in a favor for Olinsky.

Find out what favor Voight calls in tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

Tonight, Syfy launches the new series Krypton. Two hundred years before the birth of Kal-El (aka Superman) and the destruction of his home planet, there was political and spiritual turmoil on planet Krypton. In Kandor City, everything is controlled by the Council and the mysterious golden-faced Voice of Rao. They decide who is a member of what guild/profession, control what ranks are given, and declare who will “bind” with whom. However, there are those who want to put an end to this tyranny. The power of the Council is being threatened both by outside forces as well as a underground terrorist group inside the city, known as Black Zero.

When Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe, The Halcyon) — the future grandfather of the Man of Steel — was a young boy, he witnessed his grandfather being tried for treason for being a part of a revolution against this tyranny. His grandfather was executed and his family ostracized, stripped of its rights, rank, and privileges, and sent to live underground in the Outlands. Fourteen years later, Seg-El has become a quick-witted, street-wise young man. He and best friend Kem (Rasmus Hardiker, Your Highness) always have some sort of money-making scheme in the works. However, Seg-El’s world is suddenly turned upside down when he is visited by a mysterious man named Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos, Dark Matter, The Vampire Diaries), who claims to be an Earthling from the future and warns him that something is coming to wipe out his entire bloodline. Now Seg-El must find a way to restore his family’s honor and protect the ones he loves and the future from both the dangers that lurk inside Kandor City as well as the unknown forces headed his way.

The series also stars Blake Ritson (Indian Summers), Georgina Campbell (Broadchurch), Elliot Cowan (Da Vinci’s Demons), Ann Ogbomo (World War Z), Wallis Day (Will), Aaron Pierre (Tennison), and Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones).

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere. We usually only get to see what Krypton is like in the moments before Superman is sent off and the planet explodes. So this is a new look at this class-based society and the internal and external strife that may have eventually led to the planet’s demise. We are also introduced to several members of the Zod family and will see how their lives are intertwined with the Els, which should be very interesting given the relationship that we know will exist between General Zod and Kal-El in the future. I look forward to seeing what evils from the future are headed Seg-El’s way and how he deals with the dangers that already surround him in the city.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” Superman’s grandfather, Seg-El, learns Krypton is in danger of being destroyed so that his future grandson will never be born.

Meet the legendary Superman’s family tonight on Syfy at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Modern Family, American Housewife, Designated Survivor, Survivor, The X-Files, 9-1-1, Life Sentence, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, Schitt’s Creek, and The Magicians.

I can’t believe it’s the season finale of 9-1-1 already. I am going to miss it! Last week Abby was going to break up with Buck because she felt like her life with her mom was just too much to drag him into, but he refused because he said he just wanted to be part of her life any way he could. I love them together. Unfortunately, at the end of the episode, Abby’s mom passed away. I don’t know how this is going to affect her, but the closing scene with her crying on her mother’s chest was heartbreaking…

On tonight’s episode, “A Whole New You,” the first responders take calls to help an unusual domestic disturbance, a “death” at a psychic’s, and a horrific motorcycle crash. Meanwhile, Bobby dips his toe into the dating pool, Abby takes a walk down memory lane, Buck is confronted by his past actions, and Athena tries to start her new life.

To find out how Abby deals with her loss, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Law & Order: SVU, SEAL Team, Guy’s Grocery Games, Chicago PD, and Criminal Minds.

Jenny’s Choice #2

I couldn’t go this week without mentioning Criminal Minds. Last week was one of my favorite episodes in a while. The team had been split apart the episode before by Assistant Director Linda Barnes, who certainly had it out for them. And no matter what possible case they brought to her, she vetoed it, claiming it was too hard to solve, that it wouldn’t make the BAU/FBI look good to the public, etc. Poor Garcia was stuck in Cyber Crimes, which you would think would be right up her alley, right? But her boss was a no-nonsense stick in the mud, with rules like you could only have three personal items. And Garcia was wearing a plain old boring brown business skirt and jacket, looking totally un-Garcia-like. So when Garcia found what she believed to be a major potential case and took it to her boss, who said to pass it along to another department and move on, she sent the info to JJ, who took it to Barnes, who dismissed it as not being real, just a fake setup for fetishists. But JJ and the others agreed that it was real, so they worked it off the books and out of Emily’s place.

It was a good thing, cause the killer was creepy as all get out and they got to him and his latest victim right before she would have died. And that victim happened to be a senator’s missing daughter. The senator showed up at the scene, where Barnes was with the group of them and likely about to read them the riot act yet again, and thanked them profusely, even going so far as to giving Emily her job back as the boss in the BAU. And Emily then turned the tables on Barnes and asked the senator if she could hire whoever she wanted and explained that Barnes had fired JJ when JJ took the case to her to begin with. The senator agreed that she should and then told Barnes that he wanted to see her in his office first thing. And ding dong, the witch is gone. Garcia showed back up at the BAU later with a box of her things, and they all learned that Barnes was told that she was to stay away from the BAU. So the gang is back together, the bad guy was caught and his victim saved, and the team is safe once more…until next time, I’m sure!

On tonight’s episode, “The Capilanos,” the BAU is called to Oklahoma to investigate a murderous clown terrorizing the sleepy town of Guymon.

Meet the scary clown killing people five hours from my childhood hometown (eek! LOL) tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, 9-1-1, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Property Brothers, SEAL Team, & American Housewife.
