If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/20/18

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’s NCIS: LA wasn’t one of my favorites, for several reasons. Mainly because it was basically an extension to a previous episode with little bits and pieces of new stuff thrown in. Nicole DeChamps, who recruited Sam into an undercover op dealing with Peruvian counterfeiter Alfonso Marca in the episode that tied into this one, was back. She had left the Secret Service and was now a member of NCIS in the San Diego office. (NCIS: San Diego just doesn’t have the same ring, does it? LOL) Turned out Marca’s sort-of daughter was killed in prison and NCIS was asked to determine whether or not she’d been assassinated or if it was just a regular prison killing.

The most interesting parts of the episode were the non-case stuff. Callen went to talk to Anna (for the first time since she shot Sokolov) when he was called by ATF to give his statement about what he saw or didn’t see at the time. Anna was clearly not happy that Callen hadn’t come to see her before then and told him to tell the truth, that Sokolov was already dead when he got there and he hadn’t seen anything. Things are not all right in the Anna/Callen relationship.

Tonight’s double-episode season finale should be interesting…mainly for Kensi & Deeks (given the preview, so I won’t spoil) and for Mosley, who gets the chance to rescue her son. I’m excited for that part!

On tonight’s episodes, “A Line in the Sand/Ninguna Salida,” Sam is shot during a firefight with a cartel, and a suspect reveals new information on the whereabouts of Spencer Williams, the man who kidnapped Mosley’s son five years ago. Despite several team members having grave reservations, NCIS travels to Mexico for a daring mission to locate and rescue Mosley’s son.

To see if the rescue mission is successful and where the team is left at the end of the season, tune in to CBS starting at 8/7c.

I couldn’t not post about the season finale of Brooklyn Nine-Nine! It’s the one we’ve all (or most of us…) been waiting for since the beginning of the series: Jake and Amy’s wedding day! Last week, Rosa and Amy worked together to finally capture their “white whale” suspect, who’d kept a step ahead of them for seven years. The fun part about that story line was the flashback to seven years previous, where Amy had bangs, Hitchcock wore a horrible toupee, and Amy was even more scared of Rosa than she still is, even though they’re friends now.

Then there was Captain Holt and Olivia Crawford continuing to battle it out for the commissioner position. Olivia came to Holt’s office, and we found out that the votes for the two of them were splitting the race so that the other guy was going to win. Neither wanted that, so instead, they both told the other they’d sent in their notice that they withdrew from the race. Together with Gina, they went to the mailroom to retrieve the letters. It took a while, but Olivia finally came up with Holt’s and gave it to him, and he quickly tore it up before getting ready to continue searching for hers. That’s when she told him that she’d sent hers in via email…that it was his time for the commissioner’s job and that hers would come. Oh my gravy. Does that mean Holt will become the commissioner? If so, what does that mean for his job at the 99?

But the best part of the episodes had to be Jake and Terry working together to finish up the wedding prep for Amy while she was working with Rosa. Jake was overwhelmed until Terry told him to trust his “groom gut,” and that really got Jake going on it all – so much so that he went way over budget. Fortunately, he was able to bribe Hitchcock and Scully with candied almonds if they made the gift bags for the wedding, and they got it done in record time. It was really funny seeing them going down the line getting everything into the bags, ending up in front of Terry with their mouths open to get the treat.

Thank goodness for NBC. FOX canceled this show and NBC picked it up about 31 hours later, so even though we’ll have to wait till midseason next year, at least we’ll get more of Jake, Amy, and the rest of them there at the 99!

On tonight’s episode, “Jake & Amy,” Jake and Amy’s wedding day is majorly threatened, and Charles and the whole squad rush to help save it. Amidst the chaos, Holt hesitates to open the email that will indicate if he has won his campaign for Commissioner, despite Gina’s encouragement. Meanwhile, Terry gently pushes Rosa towards a potential love interest (guest star Gina Rodriguez). Kyle Bornheimer also guest stars.

Find out if the wedding goes off even with a hitch tonight on FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Worst Cooks in America & Iron Chef America.
