If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/4/18

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!

Last week Zach Braff returned to television in the new ABC comedy Alex, Inc.. In the premiere, Alex suddenly decided to quit his job working at a radio station in order to launch a new podcast company. His ragtag support team in this venture are his second cousin Eddie (who can sell anything) and his young former producer from the radio station (who is infatuated with Alex). While Alex’s wife supported his decision, Alex initially found it a little difficult to balance spending time with his two children and starting a new career. However, Alex soon found his groove and made his company’s first podcast all about what he and his family were going through as he launched his new business.

I was a bit skeptical when I first saw the ads for this series, but I have thoroughly enjoyed the first few episodes. This cast is hilarious and have such great chemistry right from the get go. Alex and his wife and kids feel like a real family, and their interactions with and reactions to one another feel so genuine. The series quickly finds a nice blend between the office and home life stories. And I also appreciate how the creators of the show found an appropriate and organic way to work in that wonderful, familiar Scrubs-style narration that Zach Braff is so good at. This show is a lot of fun and is definitely worth adding to your DVR!

On tonight’s episode, “The Wax Museum,” Eddie and Deirdre compete for Alex’s time; Alex does not like Rooni’s handmade costume for Ben’s class project on famous people.

See why Alex doesn’t like his son’s costume tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Modern Family, American Housewife, Designated Survivor, Survivor, The Blacklist, Life Sentence, The Americans, Schitt’s Creek, The Magicians, Krypton, and Suits.

Last week’s Criminal Minds had two good unsubs: the killer who was leaving a rose on each victim…and the fiancé of Rossi’s ex-wife’s daughter. The actual unsub turned out to be the wife of a radio DJ who was cheating on her, and she not only killed him and took his mistress hostage to kill her, but she also killed several women who wrote in or sent things in to her husband at the station. She was pretty wackadoodle. He wasn’t a great husband for sure, but damn…

But the other story line I have to mention is Rossi’s ex-wife, Krystall (with a K and two Ls. LOL). She was a dealer in Vegas, and they got married by an Elvis impersonator and were married for all of 36 hours. She was in the area and met up with Rossi because her daughter, Portia, was getting married and both she and her fiancé were interested in meeting him. When Rossi spent time with them, he (and we) noticed almost right away that something wasn’t completely right with the guy. He was clearly controlling, given the way he interacted with Portia. Rossi had Garcia look up the guy, and it turned out he had a violent history and was definitely not a good guy. Rossi told Krystall, who told her daughter, but the fiancé convinced her he’d changed. When the guy showed up at Rossi’s, though, Rossi basically stared him down and convinced him he’d be better off leaving Portia alone. Rossi was awesome in that scene. And though Krystall left in the end, I could totally see something between them in the future, especially since we learned that at some point, he and his former flame and baby mama had decided they were better as friends and co-parents/grandparents.

I love when we get personal with the characters like Rossi last week. This week is Matt’s turn. We’ve gotten to see some of his interaction with his wife (in both this show and the now-dead spinoff, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders), so it’ll be nice to see her back and watch how Matt deals with the situation they find themselves in!

On tonight’s episode, “Ex Parte,” the BAU takes charge of a hostage situation at a law firm in D.C., where Matt Simmons’ wife, Kristy (Kelly Frye), works.

See if the team can save Kristy and the others before anyone gets hurt tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Alex, Inc, Iron Chef Gauntlet, Modern Family, & American Housewife.
