If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/2/18

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

Last week’s penultimate episode of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger season one took an interesting approach to its unfolding, bringing us back into the world of Tyrone’s love interest Evita. The whole ep was framed around lectures Evita was taking notes on in school about “heroes.” Also, her Aunt Chantelle, the voodooienne who warned her niece that Roxxon Corporation will destroy all of New Orleans unless the “divine pairing” of Tyrone & Tandy can stop them.

But of course they were caught up in their own drama movies: Tandy has learned not only can she see people’s greatest hope, she can also take it from their mind as well, while Tyrone dealt with the fact that the corrupt cop who killed his brother had gotten off the hook for the murder againnnnn. Tandy finally bailed Liam out of jail but only to steal his greatest hope: getting married to her. His love for her gone, he stole her cash stash and skipped town ASAP. Tyrone meanwhile was now the target of Connors, his brother’s killer. The corrupt cop turned to treachery again and falsely accused Tyrone of murder, leading dozens of NOPD to come knocking on his door. Same time, crosstown? Tandy was dealing with an assassin at her mom’s pad. Both storylines ended on cliffhanger moments, setting the stage for a wild finale tonight.

This show was been rock solid, one of the best in the MCU so far, up there with The Gifted & Legion. The young thespians playing Tandy and Tyrone are promising, and season 2 is already confirmed. So if you have never seen it yet, start binging now or wait for it to hit ‘flix, cause this one is a rewarding, twisting tale of two teens cursed or blessed with powers that somehow tie their very souls together.

On tonight’s season finale, “Colony Collapse,” everything comes to a head for Tyrone and Tandy as the city of New Orleans is thrown into chaos. The two realize that it is time they face their destiny and test their powers as the “Divine Pairing” to save the city.

See how the season ends tonight on Freeform at 8/7c.

Other than this tonight, I’m just working on my binge of the first two seasons of Preacher, ’cause holy f*** that show is nuts, as it turns out.
