If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/16/18

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, Supergirl returns to the CW. In the last episode, Supergirl and the DEO captured a second Worldkiller, Purity. As Alex and Kara interrogated her, hoping to get some info on how to defeat Reign, Purity used her sonic scream to escape from her cell and get away. Meanwhile, J’onn, Winn, and Mon-El teamed up to fix the Legion ship. During one of their conversations, Mon-El revealed that he only married Imra in order to unite Titan and Earth, not out of love.

Later, Purity and Reign teamed up to attack the subway, but our heroes managed to fend them off. As the Worldkillers were leaving, they promised that Pestilence would soon join their team and that then they would be unstoppable. After things settled down, Mon-El told Imra the truth about their marriage and that he may still have feelings for Kara. Imra responded with the news that she, too, was hiding something — the true purpose of their mission (though we never get to hear what this is). As the episode ended, Sam’s eyes once again flashed red, this time in front of Lena, who announced afterwards that she knew what was wrong with Sam.

Will the group be able to stop Worldkillers before it’s too late? What does Lena think she knows about Sam and the reasons for her blackouts? What is Mon-El and Imra’s true mission on Earth? Will Mon-El confess to Kara that he still has feelings for her? And what other dangers await our heroes in this final stretch of the season?

On tonight’s episode, “Schott Through the Heart,” when Winn’s father dies, his estranged mother tries to reconnect and explain why she abandoned him; a copycat Toyman attacks, and the two must work together to stop him; Mon-El tells Kara something important about the Worldkillers.

See how Kara reacts to Mon-El’s information tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Crossing, Good Girls, The Resident, iZombie, The Terror, UnREAL, and Final Space.

I still haven’t watched the installments between when I left for the woods and got back, but I cued up last week’s American Dad to be able to Remote Control blog about, because it is mathematically impossible that you watch enough American Dad thusly in your life. So I will persist until there is always a monitor somewhere in every room playing at least one episode of it. Last week opened with the rest of the Smith family being predictably bored senseless as Stan droned on and on about an unremarkable trip to the store. This sort of flat, predictable moment set the tone for Stan’s behavior throughout.

When CIA Director Bullock left for a swinger club in South America called Hedonism III, Stan was left to teach one of Bullock’s classes at the CIA Academy. Instead of teaching them anything useful though, he just took advantage of their undivided attention and made them study mundane aspects of his life. Meanwhile, Klaus was walking out of a 7-11 when he happened upon a freestyle rap battle. Cheering along got him recognized as the perfect hype man by star rap Juicy Lou, who happened to be watching.

Bullock got kicked out of Hedonism and informed Stan he’d be coming back early, but Stan so loved his new position that he arranged to have Bullock’s return ferry drone bombed. The record label people got to Klaus’s head, and he signed a solo deal. Because he used magnets to fake all their midterms, Stan’s class got selected for early deployment in an elite unit in Nicaragua. Of course, they were armed with little more than trivial knowledge about Stan. Klaus released one big epic rap video about what food he liked at 7-11 and it killed his career.

After Rodger inserted himself into Stan’s drama, assuming the role of Mrs. Weinsteinopolis, the mother of one of the students, the duo made an attempt to save the class. Hilariously, it was Bullock and other swingers from Hedonism III that eventually saved the day.

On tonight’s episode, “Railroaded,” Stan gets in over his head when he runs for mayor.

See how it goes for Stan in the election tonight on TBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Supergirl.

Megan’s Choice

Tonight is the season finale of Scorpion, and I’m not happy, because as of last week, there were quite a few issues going on with the team. Walter still hasn’t come clean to Paige about the night of the lecture, when he took Florence but told Paige it was cancelled. Paige knows Walter is lying about something, and that’s going to come back to hurt the relationship. I really don’t want them to break up, given the fact it took so long to get together, but if this doesn’t get cleared up, then things are going to go south quickly.

On tonight’s episode, “A Lie in the Sand,” Team Scorpion heads to Northeast Africa, where they must carefully navigate a minefield in order to save the lives of local villagers. Also, Paige and Walter’s relationship takes a shocking turn, and Toby and Happy make an important decision.

To see how the team navigates the minefields in Africa and in their relationships, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Lucifer, The Resident, The Voice, Man With a Plan, and The Crossing.
