If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/29/18

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!

Jenny’s Choice

Oh my word. Last week’s Chicago Fire was a mix of highs and lows — from Casey really stepping up to help an abused wife who ended up setting her house on fire after hitting her husband on the head with a baseball bat and Severide and Kidd finally stepping back over the line of friendship and having sex ON THE BAR (a bit unsanitary, no?)…to Crus hurting for money after he spent so much on getting the Slamigan up and running and Otis being severely (maybe permanently?!) injured while on a fire call when a guy’s ammunition started exploding and shot at Otis and Kidd. Thankfully she was only hit in her radio. Otis, though, was shot in the neck. He underwent surgery at the hospital, but the last we saw, it seems like maybe it left him with no feeling in his legs. Eek. That doesn’t bode well for his future as a fire fighter, does it?! It was truly an action-packed two-hour episode and was one of my favorites in a while for the series.

In sad news, the actress who played Boden’s assistant Connie, DuShon Monique Brown, died last Friday of a heart attack. She was always fun to watch on the show because she said so little but had a big impact on the characters — she could “say” a lot with little to no words. Obviously it’ll be a few episodes before they can do anything about it, but I have no idea how they’ll write her out of the series. Maybe she’ll move away to be closer to family. I can’t see them killing her off. That would be too sad. However they do it, she’ll be missed!

On tonight’s episode, “The One That Matters Most,” Herrmann, along with members of house 51, struggle to come to terms with an injury to one of their own, and then must deal with the new temporary replacement (guest star Damon Dayoub). Boden ponders some interesting news while Kidd has a hard time keeping a secret.

See how the group is dealing with Otis’s injuries tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Station 19, Will & Grace, Beat Bobby Flay, Impractical Jokers, & S.W.A.T.

Station 19 premiered last week, and we were not disappointed. In the premiere, Andy’s father passed out while on a call, and at the hospital they found out he has cancer. Andy was furious he didn’t tell her as well as the fact that he was going to name Jack the interim captain of the firehouse. She stormed into his hospital room and demanded she be promoted to lieutenant so that she could be in the running to become captain. He obliged. Now Jack and Andy are competing against each other to be named the new official captain while secretly sleeping together behind the scenes. It’s bound to be a messy road.

On tonight’s episode, “Contain the Flame,” upon the arrival of Batallion Chief Frankel, Jack begins his first shift as co-captain and continues to butt heads with Andy on leadership styles. Captain Pruitt has a difficult time following doctor’s orders and winds up back at the station to take on administrative duties. Meanwhile, the rest of the team at Station 19 responds to an attic fire at JJ’s apartment building and a call to a pool house party.

To see if Andy and Jack can find a way to work together, tune in to ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll be also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Grey’s Anatomy, Young Sheldon, A.P. Bio, S.W.A.T., and Chicago Fire.

I’m a couple seasons behind on Supernatural, but I’ve been looking forward to tonight’s episode ever since it was first announced at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con. My favorite episodes of the show have always been the crazy, meta episodes where the writers just have fun and don’t get bogged down in the ongoing mythology of the series. Tonight’s episode definitely looks like one of these, as it finds Castiel and the Winchester brothers being sucked into a TV and becoming part of a Scooby-Doo cartoon/mystery. Zoinks!

I was a big fan of Scooby-Doo growing up. That series also has a lot of self-aware humor and enjoys pairing up the Scooby gang with unusual partners — I mean, they teamed up with KISS! So this seems like a destined, perfect pairing, and I can’t wait to check it out.

On tonight’s episode, “Scoobynatural,” Sam, Dean and Castiel are transported into the animated world of Scooby Doo; they join forces with the Scooby gang to solve a ghostly mystery.

See all the crazy fun tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Life in Pieces, Superstore, A.P. Bio, Will & Grace, Champions, Gotham, and Siren.
