If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/4/18

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, Superstore reopens its doors for its fourth season on NBC. When we left off last year, Myrtle was being fired. Everyone banded together to try to save her job, but they were ultimately unsuccessful. Meanwhile, Dina was pregnant as a surrogate for manager Glenn, and Amy discovered she, too, was pregnant by her ex-husband. However, that didn’t stop the show from finally answering the big “Will They or Won’t They” question that fans have been wondering about since the beginning of the series. Amy and Jonah had sex in the storage room – what they didn’t realize until afterwards was that their sexcapades were being live-streamed to all of the Cloud 9 locations.

Tonight’s season premiere picks up 4 months later, as Amy and Jonah return to their jobs at Cloud 9. Lucky for us, their punishment isn’t at all realistic – in real life, there is no way they would be allowed to return to their jobs after what happened, or at the very least Amy would have been demoted! But now that they are back, is it really business as usual? How will their co-workers treat them now that they’ve seen Amy and Jonah bare all? And what is the status of their relationship – was it just a one-time thing, or are Amy and Jonah still a couple? The Cloud 9 crew always provide lots of laughs, and I’m excited to have them returning to my TV!

On tonight’s episode, “Back to School,” Amy and Jonah return from a four-month suspension just in time for the back-to-school sale madness, but they receive different treatment from their co-workers; Jeff makes a misguided attempt to woo back Mateo.

Catch up with the gang at Cloud 9 tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, The Good Place, Will & Grace, and I Feel Bad.

Station 19 returns tonight, and I am anxious to see what happens to Jack after he went back into a the burning building in the season finale. Andy was begging him to not be a hero, but away he went. I’m so torn when it comes to Jack and Andy – on the one hand, their chemistry is incredible, but I also think she has something special with Ryan. It’s a tough decision because no matter which way she goes, she will be breaking someone’s heart. In the season finale, we also left Andy’s father in distress at the hospital, as he was barely hanging on during his dangerous cancer treatment. I have a feeling that this season is going to be even more intense than the last one, making it must-see TV.

On tonight’s episode, “No Recovery,” lives hang in the balance as the members of Station 19 continue to fight a raging inferno inside a skyscraper. Meanwhile, Pruitt’s health is in grave danger at Grey Sloan; and a seasoned firefighter with a mysterious past arrives at Station 19, leaving everyone to wonder what the future holds.

To see who survives the fire, tune in to ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Grey’s Anatomy, S.W.A.T., I Feel Bad, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Law & Order: SVU, The Good Place, and Will & Grace.

When it comes to optimism v. pessimism, I tend to be a “Glass is destined to be destroyed in the Apocalypse no matter how full” kind of thinker, so I enjoy a slew of dark comedy. I got the chance last week to see the pilot of NBC’s new sitcom I Feel Bad before it airs tonight, and it was worth the price of admission imho. Yeah, okay, I saw it for free, but after watching, I Feel Glad. So whatever that’s worth.

The show is an Amy Poehler creation that centers around an Indian-American working mom and her family. Emet (played by Sarayu Blue) is a video game/app developer that works with a bunch of millennial geeks and raises her three kids with help from her parents and her ad exec husband David. It’s a very 2018 show, and even though it features Brian George, it’s not as side-splittingly funny as even the first few Seinfeld episodes were. There are some cringe moments in the pilot, and you feel bad for her as a mom. And you get why her character is wrought with conflict. But she’s fairly optimistic overall. Maybe just a little bit cynical.

On tonight’s episode, “I Lie to My Kids,” when Emet tells a lie about her son Louie’s accomplishments to make her life run more smoothly, it ends up working a little too well…setting up a chain of events that dig her in too deep to come clean.

See what lie starts it all tonight on NBC at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be starting my The Man in the High Castle binge and watching the latest episode of The Good Place.
