If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/12/18

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!

Poor Otis on Chicago Fire. Boden went to him and offered him a (temporary) job of helping in admin at the station house while he recovers. He showed up to work, and it looked like it would be fine…and then the team got a call-out, and he had to wistfully watch as they left the building without him. He kind of rocked it, though, providing Connie with a super organized list of numbers she needs regularly and then getting info out of a young boy the team brought back after their call at the local swimming pool. And wasn’t THAT a fun one? A live wire had electrocuted the lifeguard and a man trying to rescue her and all the kids in the pool were in danger. They got all the kids to come to them at the edge…except one little boy. Kidd and the new guy (Cordova) had to jump in to get him, and all three BARELY escaped being shocked themselves. And just when Casey started to come around with Cordova, he learned by accident that Dawson had dated him for a little while years before. He was understandably ticked off that Gabby hadn’t told him herself, but he’s a good guy and he got over it — at least, that’s what it seems. Time will tell if that continues! LOL

But the highlight of the episode had to be Otis, who got the boy’s dad’s name (the kid said his mom’s name was Mommy. Too cute!) and their street name, and then he called Dad to come pick him up. Mom stormed in later, claiming Dad wasn’t supposed to have access to the kid. It looked like the CFD was going to be sued, even though they later found the boy safe and sound, but when Otis went to the house to apologize, he realized the couple was actually still a couple and had been scamming the CFD. Otis was pretty awesome in this one. And of course, we can’t forget Kidd trying to impress Severide’s mom… That went over like a lead balloon. His mom seems off somehow, especially since she acted so damaged by Severide’s dad (her ex-husband) but then at the end of the episode, they’d apparently slept together after she went to see him and face her past…and now they say they’re getting back together. Eek! Oh, and Gabby and Brett caught up with two paramedics who used to work for the fire department but who now work for a private ambulance company. Gabby was considering it…until they got caught in the middle of a gang gun battle and the other two hurried away because their company forbids them from taking “high-risk” patients (ie: ones who probably don’t have insurance). Luckily their friends from the firehouse got there in time to keep them safe, since the police showed up slow and late!

So how long will Otis be sidelined? Will it be permanent and he decides he can stay in the office instead? Would that even be possible? And what about Severide’s parents? Somehow I don’t see that one working out.

On tonight’s episode, “When They See Us Coming,” when the FBI takes over Firehouse 51 for an undercover mission, Casey and Severide volunteer to assist with the investigation. Kidd attempts to help Severide come to terms with recent developments he’s been managing.

Check out the FBI investigation and Casey & Severide’s help tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

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

Young Sheldon has quickly become my favorite comedy on television right now. I admit to looking forward to it even more than The Big Bang Theory. Week after week I fall more in love with the cast, and the writing is incredible. Watching this family navigate having a brilliant child who walks to the beat of a different drum is not only amusing but heartwarming as well. If you have yet to give this show a chance, you should tune in tonight and find out why I’m so hooked.

On tonight’s episode, “A Mother, a Child, and a Blue Man’s Backside,” Mary bans Sheldon from reading a mature comic book, and Sheldon decides it’s time to stop living under Mary’s thumb.

To find out if Sheldon can stand his ground, tune in to CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19, Chicago Fire and S.W.A.T.
