If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/1/18

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!

Jenny’s Choice

My pick is the first of tonight’s new CBS comedies, The Neighborhood. Dave Johnson (Max Greenfield, New Girl) is a friendly guy from the Midwest. When his wife Gemma (Beth Behrs, 2 Broke Girls) gets a job as a school principal in LA, they move from Michigan with their young son, Grover (Hank Greenspan). They quickly learn that their new neighborhood is…slightly different from their previous one, but it doesn’t faze them a bit. Unfortunately, their opinionated next-door neighbor, Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer), is a little more than wary of the newcomers, while his gracious wife, Tina (Tichina Arnold, Everybody Hates Chris, Happily Divorced, Daytime Divas), rolls out the welcome wagon. Their younger son, Marty (Marcel Spears, The Mayor), thinks the Johnsons could be good for the community and finds his dad’s attitude about the Johnsons very funny, and their unemployed older son, Malcolm (Sheaun McKinney, Vice Principals), finds that Dave may finally be someone who understands him.

I haven’t seen the pilot, but the trailer looks pretty funny. I really like Max Greenfield, Beth Behrs, & Tichina Arnold, and Marcel Spears’s character Marty is amusing in the trailer. Cedric the Entertainer is hit or miss for me in terms of how much I like him, depending on how over the top the character is. But I think I’ll find the show and him funny this time, so I’m quite looking forward it.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” a friendly Midwesterner moves his family to a Los Angeles neighborhood next door to Calvin, who’s concerned the newcomers will disrupt the culture on the block.

Meet the Johnsons and Butlers tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Happy Together, 9-1-1, Halloween Baking Championship, Magnum P.I., & Whose Line Is It Anyway?, .

Megan’s Choice

Last week, 9-1-1 had a two-night premiere that made my love of the show even greater. Athena and Bobby make a fantastic couple, and it was wonderful to have them make their relationship public. I hope these two end up being a solid, long-term relationship, because their chemistry is so strong it radiates through the screen.

Buck is still living in Abby’s apartment, and while everyone else seems to believe they are broken up, he is still convinced she’s coming back. We all know she’s not, but hopefully they give the poor guy some closure on the situation soon. Speaking of Buck… iHs sister showed up because she is running away from her abusive husband. Buck told her he had her back and she could stay. He even got her a job as a 911 dispatcher. I am mildly optimistic about her addition to the cast and hope it helps Buck when Abby finalizes their breakup.

Aside from all the relationship and character growth, there was a 7.1 earthquake, and it left the city in shambles. All hands were on deck for this one, and we were left with so many people’s lives hanging in the balance that I am anxious to see what this week brings.

On tonight’s episode, “Help is Not Coming,” the first responders continue to deal with the fallout of a massive earthquake; Athena tries to keep the peace as Bobby and team continue to rescue victims from a collapsing high-rise hotel; Maddie must help a pregnant couple deliver their baby.

To see how Athena makes out controlling the chaos, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Good Doctor, The Voice, The Resident, The Neighborhood, Happy Together, Magnum P.I., and Manifest.
