If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/5/18

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

Last week was the exciting season premiere of Blue Bloods, but it seemed like there was conflict all over the place within the family. Not only were Jamie and Frank still at odds about Jamie and Eddie choosing to continue to ride together after getting engaged, but Erin got a promotion at work (taking over Monica’s position after Monica was killed last season), and she was very hesitant about showing any sort of favoritism toward Danny and Jamie when they came to her for help. Then of course there was drug cartel member Louis Delgado (played by one of my favorites, Lou Diamond Phillips), who we know was responsible for burning down Danny’s house – and maybe, just maybe, for somehow causing Linda’s helicopter to crash?! Danny was so gung-ho about taking Delgado down after working a case where the victim’s head was cut off that he basically set the guy up to be killed himself by making it seem like Delgado was in bed with the cops. Ouch.

I was glad to see things calm down a little between Jamie and Frank at the end. Both Jamie and Frank had to realize that Frank was so against it because he just wants his kids to be safe. He’s already lost one son on the job. The thought that Jamie partnering with Eddie now that they’re engaged could make him a little distracted and could get him killed really had Frank worried. In the end, though, Eddie talked to Jamie about not being partners because they were now partners off the job, and she didn’t want it to come between him and his dad. And really, it’s all moot now anyway because we finally found out the results of the sergeant’s exam, and while Jamie said Eddie did fine, it was Jamie himself who got the top spot in the results! He did end up taking it without telling Frank (or us), and now we’re going to have Sergeant Jamie Reagan. That should be fun… It’ll be interesting to see how they’ll work the Jamie/Eddie scenes in now that they won’t be riding together!

On tonight’s episode, “Meet the New Boss,” Gormley looks to Danny and Baez for help tracking down a former NYPD detective he believes may be a threat to Frank’s safety. Also, Erin navigates office politics when she chooses to reopen a closed case; Jamie and Eddie are transferred to a new precinct with a lot of problems; and Frank and Baker team up to investigate a complaint about an SVU detective. Bebe Neuwirth guest stars.

See how they keep Frank safe tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, MacGyver, The Cool Kids, Child Support, Hawaii Five-0, & Hell’s Kitchen.

Tonight, ABC comedies Fresh Off the Boat and Speechless make their move to Fridays as they kick off new seasons. As Fresh Off the Boat left off last season, Jessica was still working on her horror novel and attempted to get Stephen King’s endorsement. While this didn’t quite work out as she expected, Jessica was still pleased with the results. Meanwhile, pregnant neighbor Honey was getting close to her due date.

This series continues to be one of my favorite ABC family comedies, and most of that is due to Constance Wu. Her performance as Jessica always makes me laugh, even though the writers have been slowly taming down her frantic nature over the seasons. Louis is a great counterpart for her as he tends to be more laid-back and just goes with the flow, while she seems to stress out over everything. Watching tonight’s premiere, I was surprised at how old the kids look now compared to when the series first started. The actors have really grown up over the past 5 years, and it will be interesting to see how the story lines change along with the actors. Eddie, who was a bit of a wild child when the series started, has become a lot more responsible and mature, thanks in part to neighbor Nicole. In addition to the family humor, another fun part of this series is how they often bring on celebrities from the 90s to play themselves — despite the fact that they are now 20 years older. If tonight’s premiere is any indication, we should be in for another fun season.

On tonight’s episode, “Fresh off the RV,” Jessica’s book is finally released, and she looks forward to a bookstore reading; Louis is so excited to promote the book across the country that he buys an RV from Los Angeles Lakers great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who owns an RV dealership.

Don’t miss the season premiere tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Mouth and Child Support.

Megan’s Choice

MacGyver returned last week, and Mac was in Nigeria helping a town build itself up. He also had a girlfriend there who seemed to be exactly the kind of woman he needs. His work was cut short when his father showed up and said that Jack needed to be rescued. The team worked together and managed to save Jack, but Mac was going back to Nigeria because his dad was still in charge. When he was at the airport, he received a mysterious box that had a phone in it. He dialed the number, and Jill picked up. We then saw Murdoc pop up in the back seat of Jill’s car and he killed her. Mac went running out of the airport, and in my opinion he’s going to stay now to catch Murdoc again. I can’t wait to see where the rest of the season takes us if the premiere was so action packed.

On tonight’s episode, “Bravo Lead + Loyalty + Friendship,” when Jack receives an emergency distress signal from one of his old Delta buddies who is falsely accused of terrorism in a foreign country, MacGyver and Jack quickly recruit the rest of Jack’s old Delta team and stage an unsanctioned rescue op.

To see if Jack and MacGyver can save his old buddy, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods, Hell’s Kitchen, Hawaii Five-0, and The Cool Kids.
