If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/22/18

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!

The “Arrowverse’s” epic return continues tonight when DC’s Legends of Tomorrow comes back.

This is another show that ended on a crazy cliff hanger last year, which left us some hint of what this year’s season 4 might be about. In last spring’s finale, Damien Darhk sacrificed himself to become the demon Malice instead of his daughter, Nora. (Why are Darhk & Flash’s daughters named the same??!?!) Mya and Ray meanwhile took some shaman drug to commune with the ancestral totem bearers to learn how to use the totems to defeat the demon.

The team was hiding out in temporal anomalous zone: Salvation Montana in the 1860s. They met up with Johna Hex once again & also got to see Jefferson Jackson, who used to be Firestorm. Jefferson had aged five years since they last saw him, and he had a wife & child now. Unfortunately undead armies of Roman soldiers, pirates, & vikings showed up soon enough, representing Malice’s agenda. In the “High Noon” battle with the undead legions, they at first defeated them all, but Malice just reanimated them again. So the Legends had to pool the powers of the totems to become the champion that could defeat the demon. They formed into a giant “Bebo” stuffed doll and promptly kicked Malice’s butt!

In the celebrations that followed, though, mystic warrior John Constantine showed up and told them that by destroying Malice, they had cause massive repercussions through the world of the supernatural. That set the tone for what we have to look forward to in this next year. Also Mya returned to her own timeline, and she and Ray broke up, but we knew that was coming. She only was on the waverider to complete this totem arc. We know that Legends will not be part of the Elseworlds crossover that The Flash, Arrow, & Supergirl will be doing (a crossover which will launch the upcoming CW show Batwoman!!!). But looks like they will be teaming up with Constantine. This show is always funny and has so much heart. Here’s to hoping for four more years!

On tonight’s episode, “The Virgin Gary,” after the Legends defeated Mallus and wiped the final anachronism from time, they find themselves in unfamiliar territory with the Time Bureau. All that changes when Constantine informs Sara of a new magical threat that leads the team to Woodstock. Constantine thinks he knows how to defeat the new threat but will need the help of the team and their special klepto talents to help with his spell. Meanwhile, Nate and Rory go on an adventure, leaving Nate facing someone from his past.

Find out what threat leads the team to Woodstock tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Arrow.

I look forward to the next episode of 9-1-1 the minute the episode I’m watching ends, which is actually a great thing. It is hard to find shows that take the viewers on an emotional roller coaster but still manage to make us laugh week after week. This show accomplishes that.

Let’s talk about how outstanding Jennifer Love Hewitt has been in the role of Buck’s sister Maddie! Her character is resilient, talented, and a wonderful addition to the cast, which was demonstrated last episode. Maddie went on a ride-along with Athena, where she helped save the life of a restaurant owner who was shot and then left to die after a 911 operator hung up on him. Maddie treated him in the restaurant, assuring he would survive, but she then went on to fight for him by turning in the operator who had hung up on him. It turned out to be one of the veteran ladies who had just had enough of people being rude to her so she had been hanging up on people regularly. Maddie was later being called by her constantly, which actually led to Maggie being on the phone when the older lady got into a car accident. Most important part was Maddie never hung up and got the rescue service there in time. I am looking forward to seeing what comes next, but personally I foresee a relationship between Maddie and Diaz. That would be a fantastic pairing.

On tonight’s episode, “Dosed,” when the first responders race to the rescue of a crashed news copter, they unwittingly become the subject of an eager reporter’s first on-air assignment. Meanwhile, Bobby tries to deal with his daughter’s death, as Athena prepares for May’s homecoming dance. Then, Maddie struggles to let go of her fear of the past. Also, the team responds to emergencies at an eating contest, a bodybuilding competition, and a toddler pageant.

To see how Bobby handles this emotional part of his past, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

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