If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/18/18

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!

NBC’s The Good Place continues to be a lot of fun and filled with unexpected twists and turns. Last week we sped through a year in the life of the characters. Michael and Janet were now trapped on earth without their powers and resorted to using hidden cameras to track the progress of the humans. Every time it looked like a member of the ethics study group was going to leave, they stepped in to fix things. First Eleanor needed money in order to afford to stay in Australia, so Janet used her knowledge to obtain an $18K lottery ticket. Next, Tahani was getting “mad horny” and was about to have sex with Jason, so Michael and Janet arranged for a meet cute with her ex Larry Hemsworth (the often-forgotten brother of the famous ones). However, things went a little too well, and six months later they were engaged. At their engagement party, Tahani announced that they were planning to move back to London. Eleanor didn’t like the idea of the group breaking up – this was the first time she felt a part of something – and lashed out. Michael decided they needed to reset the earth timeline, so he summoned a door back to the afterlife, but the humans happened to walk by and saw it, leading them to ask What the Fork?!

This seems very familiar – Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason discovering that all is not as it seems. How much do they know/suspect? Will Michael just tell them everything? And how would knowing about their long history together change the group? Or will Michael just reset things, causing the humans to be none the wiser? And if Michael does use the door to go back to the afterlife, will the Judge stop him before he can reset the timeline or prevent him from returning to earth? I have been thoroughly enjoying this season and am really anxious to see what happens next!

On tonight’s episode, “Jeremy Bearimy,” Eleanor and the gang explore the three main branches of ethical thought after learning the truth about their history with Michael and Janet.

Learn along with the group tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Superstore, Will & Grace, and I Feel Bad.

Law & Order: SVU didn’t waste any time tackling the hard issues it is known for, and last week’s episode was no exception. It centered on guys who met on an Incel website and came up with a rape pact where they raped a girl from their past who had insulted them. They also discussed the real-life tragedy that took place in Toronto, where a man who was an Incel and he ran over a bunch of people because of the anger he had towards women. It is an insane ideal, and it is also so very current to illustrate the state of our society. The writers did an excellent job relaying the trauma and anger surrounding this violence. I’m always amazed that, after all these seasons, they still find stories to tell, but then again, when you’re using the real world as inspiration, it makes sense. This society is messed up, but at least seeing them pay for the crimes on television helps a little.

On tonight’s episode, “Accredo,” a member of a women’s empowerment group is found murdered, leading the cops to the group’s charismatic male leader. Meanwhile, Rollins keeps her pregnancy under wraps to avoid going on desk duty.

To see how Rollins handles this, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19, I Feel Bad, The Good Place, and S.W.A.T.
