If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/15/18

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, after 7 seasons, the FOX comedy New Girl finally comes to an end. Last week, Winston was anxious about becoming a father, so Jess tracked down his long-lost dad. However, after Winston bonded with this stranger, it turned out that Jess had found the wrong person. Meanwhile, Schmidt tried to go back to work, but being away from Ruth was not easy, and Cece realized just how much of a help Schmidt was at home. And Nick had his proposal all set, but his plans got messed up when he and Jess got a new dog. However, in the end, Nick realized that the situation was never going to be perfect and just went for it, proposing to Jess during an outdoor showing of an 80s rom-com in the park.

The series comes to a close with a really satisfying 1-hour finale. The first half of the finale gives us the wedding that’s been seven seasons in the making, but of course, things don’t quite go as planned, and madness and hilarity ensues. And in the final episode, the series takes a fun trip down memory lane, making lots of callbacks that longtime viewers will really appreciate. Many familiar faces also pop up for cameos during tonight’s two episodes. While I initially thought last year’s season finale did a decent job of wrapping up the show, I’m really happy that we got these extra eight episodes to give the series a proper ending. Tonight’s finale is a gift to the longtime fans, giving a fun and satisfying conclusion to the series as well as a glimpse into what lies ahead for Jess and her former loft-mates.

On tonight’s episode, “The Curse of the Pirate Bride; Engram Pattersky,” Jess and Nick make life-changing decisions; Winston and Aly’s big day arrives; the gang takes a trip down memory lane.

Find out how the series ends tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, black-ish, Rise, MasterChef: Junior, The Flash, The 100, Legion, and Chrisley Knows Best.

Last week’s NCIS: New Orleans kept us on the edge of our seats when someone began targeting Pride, starting with “journalist” Oliver Crane. Crane received confidential information about Pride’s past cases and basically claimed Pride used excessive force in all of them. At first we were led to believe that a female member of the Navy (Marine? One of those…) was Crane’s source, but after the woman was murdered, Pride confronted Crane and explained that they knew she wasn’t his source but whoever actually was the source had killed the woman and would likely come after him to continue tying up loose ends. He gave them video of the guy turning over the information, and by the end, they knew who the guy was. He was also responsible for getting a crowd to protest outside the NCIS office and paying a man to throw a brick at Pride. Unfortunately, from what Rita told Pride and the Assistant District Attorney tell him, someone in Washington was behind that man and his actions and is gunning hard for Pride…going so far as to getting a grand jury to convene to go after him legally. Pride had to turn over his gun and badge and was to have no interaction with his team.

Pride has been working pretty hard to color within the lines since everything went down last time. Someone truly is out to get him…but why? Who is it, and what in the world did Pride do to them?! Tonight is a special two-part episode for the season finale, and I am really hoping they wrap this story line up and it doesn’t drag into next season. It’s gone on long enough already. I’m ready to find out who the bad guy really is!

On tonight’s double episode, “Checkmate Pt 1 & 2,” Pride assembles an off-the-books team with hacker Elvis Bertrand (Tom Arnold), retired Green Beret Sydney Halliday (Riann Steele), journalist Oliver Crane (Mark Gessner), and attorney Elliott Newman (John Cothran, Jr.), to search for a loophole when he faces a grand jury indictment for abuse of power. Also, Pride and the team uncover a sinister plot during the New Orleans Tricentennial Fleet Week celebration. Lou Diamond Phillips (Longmire) also guest stars as Deputy Chief Gossett.

Find out (hopefully!) who is out to get Pride tonight on CBS starting at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, Roseanne, Chopped, & Chicago Med.

It’s been a fantastic season on Chicago Med, and I cannot believe that’s it is over all ready. I’ve really enjoyed the relationship growth on all levels but especially between Dr. Choi and April, because I think they are a couple that could go the distance. It has been a little rocky with April keeping secrets about Emily, but I believe they’re going to make it through. Last episode, Dr. Charles received a file about Reese’s dad, which suggests he’s a serial killer…so Dr. Charles is trying to solve the mystery before Reese gets hurt.

On tonight’s episode, “The Tipping Point,” Dr. Rhodes second guesses his decision to remove himself from the team of doctors who work to separate conjoined twins. Dr. Choi and April make a startling discovery about his sister, Emily, and Dr. Charles uncovers troubling information concerning Dr. Reese’s father.

To find out if Dr. Charles can save the day before it’s too late, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS, NCIS: New Orleans, Chopped, Rise, and For the People.
