If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/22/19

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!

My pick tonight is The Conners. Last week was a fun one. Even though she isn’t even showing yet, Becky wanted to have her baby shower as soon as possible in order to get the “loot” now. As she, Jackie, and Darlene were planning it, Blue showed up and managed to get an invite when telling Becky that her women’s group would be glad to come and…well, do whatever crunchy granola stuff they do. When Becky learned they’d also bring actual store-bought gifts, she not only agreed to invite them but also pulled up a chair to let Blue help plan it. Of course, Blue later asked Darlene to speak to David and tell him she was okay with him having a baby with Blue, to which Darlene was like, Uh, no?! Also, Jackie invited Emilio to the shower, and he showed up with a rocking horse he’d made himself, which was too cute. We finally learned why Becky has been so reluctant about letting him be involved – because she doesn’t want to count on him only for him to leave. Unfortunately, Dan gave her no choice and hired him for his crew in order to let him get extra money to give Becky and the baby. I like Emilio, so I’m hoping he’ll stick around.

But the biggest part of the episode was Ben offering to give Mark piano lessons, and even though he was tough on Mark and Darlene at first was mad at him for it, it turned out to be a good thing for both Mark and Darlene. So much so that Ben later admitted that he’d been given the chance to move the magazine to Chicago, which is only an hour away, but he wants Darlene and the kids to move in with him. What?! They haven’t even been dating that long! I mean, I love him with Darlene (even more so than David now…), but wow. She said yes but she’d have to talk to her kids and family. I can’t wait to see what happens tonight!

Tonight is the season finale, and while the series has yet to be renewed, I’m hopeful. I’ve really been enjoying it.

On tonight’s episode, “We Continue to Truck,” as Darlene grapples with a life-changing offer from Ben, an unexpected conversation with David turns her world even more upside down. Relationship problems lead Jackie to the bottom of the bottle at the last place she remembers being truly happy. Becky’s hopes of a happily ever after with Emilio are jeopardized when Dan delivers alarming news.

See what news Dan gives Becky and what David says to Darlene tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Ellen’s Game of Games, The Kids Are Alright, Chopped, FBI, Food Truck Nation, NCIS: New Orleans, & The Rookie.

New Amsterdam wasted no time jumping into the chemotherapy story with Max and how he is doing it while still trying to run the hospital. Max was walking around with his chemo treatment, and finally at the end of the episode he realized he needed to sit because it was taking a lot out of him. Sharpe agreed to be Max’s right hand after much thought because she wants to keep an eye on Max and also on Bloom. Speaking of Bloom, Sharpe really hurt their friendship when she searched Bloom’s purse after she insisted she was clean. I do understand where Sharpe was coming from, but at the same time that is a complete breach of trust and Bloom has a right to be upset. I’m sure this will cause a lot of tension between the doctors going forward.

On tonight’s episode, “Anima Sola,” tensions are high in the hospital as Bloom is overruled on a diagnosis. Meanwhile, Iggy notices that something may be amiss with one of the hospital’s most respected surgeons.

To find out how Bloom handles having Sharpe boss her around, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS: New Orleans, Ellen’s Game of Games, FBI, The Kids Are Alright, The Conners, Chopped, The Rookie, The Flash, This Is Us, and Roswell, New Mexico.
