If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/30/18

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!

Phoebe’s Choice

I don’t watch a lot of primetime sitcom stuff, but one of my best friends whom I stayed with this winter watches a ton of them, so I accidentally found out that I enjoy Superior Donuts. In writing it up this week, I learned its origin as a play in Chicago that went Broadway to regional theaters to CBS. WTG small-time play!

Last time the show aired, two weeks ago, the plot mostly revolved around the DMV. They recently lost their delivery guy, and Franco can’t do it because he never got his license. So Arthur volunteered to teach him. Only, while they were out driving around an empty parking lot, they got pulled over by a cop. Cop found out Arthur’s license was expired, and since he was over 75, he had to retake his test at the DMV.

The two took the test same day, and Franco passed while Arthur did not. To Franco, he saw the need for the older man to get it renewed. Like it was a watershed moment after which he would see himself less and less capable if he cannot renew it. After he accidentally crashed his car through the front of Fwaz’s store, DeLuca stressed how maybe it was time that he give up driving. When he sold his car, we assumed he failed again and gave up. But no. He just bought a new car!

On tonight’s episode, “The ICEMen Cometh,” with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents conducting raids in Uptown, Sofia turns to Franco for help hiding her undocumented brother, Rafael (Erik Rivera), who faces deportation to Colombia. Also, Tush decides it’s time to give up his daily sugar rush. The episode was inspired by actress Diane Guerrero’s experience growing up.

See if Franco can help Sofia and Rafael tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching American Dad & Supergirl.
