If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/20/19

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!

Jenny’s Choice

My pick tonight is actually two shows, both family competition shows premiering on BYUtv. First is the comedic game show Battle of the Ages, which pits two multi-generational family teams (grandparent, parent, child/teen) against each other in mental and physical challenges. It looks a little bit like Double Dare but with a few twists and just looks like a lot of fun.

Following that is the premiere of Dinner Takes All, a family cooking competition show hosted by celebrity chef Kelsey Nixon. Like several other shows, one of which is currently airing on Food Network, two teams of family members go head-to-head. In this one, it’s families of five who have to cook their “best Sunday dinner.” Each team uses family recipes to create an entrée, three side dishes, and a dessert while simultaneously playing interactive food-centric games for bonus points. Winning families receive a $10,000 cash prize. So it isn’t just a cooking show. There are fun games as well.

On tonight’s episode of Battle of the Ages, “Sanchez vs. Perkey,” grandparents get hints from pilot Lucky Lindenburger in a race to name the state he’s flying over.

Then on Dinner Takes All, “LoRusso Family vs. Castleberry Family,” the LoRusso and Castleberry families cook meals while playing games to win $10,000.

Catch all the fun tonight on BYUtv starting at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Schooled, Gone, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Single Parents, Whiskey Cavalier, & SEAL Team.

Whiskey Cavalier is not a typical procedural, in the way that is more of a dramedy than a straight cop show. The characters are witty and very comical while still being very talented agents. So far I am enjoying it.

Last week, it seemed like the characters took a step back, which they themselves actually pointed out. They went to Rome to stop a terrorist attack, but their differences and all the in-fighting nearly got them and lots of innocents killed. It did get Jai shot by Standish – although it was an accident. Thankfully they each put their foot down about him getting a gun with actual bullets again before he got training!

Personally, I think the show has a lot of room for growth, but it may end up being one of the surprise hits of the season. The chemistry between Will and Frankie is strong, but first they need to overcome their differences and Frankie’s negativity. Whatever happens, I’m looking forward to more.

On tonight’s episode, “Mrs. & Mr. Trowbridge,” Will and Frankie head to Paris, where they must grudgingly pose as a married couple to infiltrate a wedding and capture a genocidal Romanian general.

To see if Will and Frankie can be civil enough to pass as a married couple, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching SEAL Team, All American, Riverdale, Schooled, Single Parents, and Guy’s Grocery Games.

Tonight is the end of season one of the new comic book adaptation Deadly Class, which follows the misadventures of a young man named Marcus as he immerses into a high school for assassins and criminals. Of all the second-generation criminals in the private boarding institution, Marcus is an orphan admitted to the school on the merit of his reputation as a cold-blooded killer who burned his foster home down and killed dozens. The dean of the school is Master Lin, who charges young Yakuza princess Saya to be Marcus’s sponsor. Over the course of the season, we saw Maria & Marcus become entangled over the murder of Maria’s abusive boyfriend, Rico. For several episodes, the core crew of the show had been trying to head off Marcus’s nemesis, the gnarly scarred serial killer Fuckface, to kill him before he could reveal the truth about Maria murdering Rico.

At the start of the last episode, we saw they had tracked Fuckface to the local home in which he had terrorized and was holding captive several people who had fed him information. He used them as his captive audience and sadistic playthings. The students of Murder School acquired the help of punk rock Brit Lex to get the weapons and explosives they wanted to take out Fuckface with. There was some fun moshing, and the deal was made at the show. As we kept seeing over and over, even though Marcus was dating high unstable Maria, almost out of gratitude for saving his life, he is really into Saya and she him. After the punk show, headlined by The Adolescents, Saya & Marcus finally hook up. Back at the dorms, big softie Willie confessed to his girlfriend that he has to flee the school before it makes him as violent as his friends. He wants to dip to Los Angeles. He’s shook – ’cause ain’t no such thing as halfway crooks, & he’s just fronting like he’s hard when he and Marcus know that’s bullshit.

Marcus woke up to the shock that he was naked with Saya in a park or cemetery. Not only that, though. He was also two hours late to open up the comic book store he works at to pick up the weapons they bought. He was dashing across town, realizing to his dismay while having sex with her, he told Saya that he loved her. He opened the comic book store, secured the weapons, and was besieged by dozens of annoying and disgruntled comic collectors, mad that he robbed them of two hours of browsing time. He then got so sick that he crapped himself in a very liquid excessive manner. Totes gross. No need for second viewing of that particular scene. The last thing that happened was much more traumatic for the course of this show’s plot, however…when Master Lin’s wife was killed by his sister Madame Gao. He did manage to get away with his daughter, so we’ll see how that resolves this week. This show has been a phenomenal ride, and I look forward to there being a season two.

On tonight’s episode, “Sink With California,” the heroes raid Chester manor; across town, Lin runs from El Diablo with his daughter.

See how it works out for the group and for Master Lin tonight on Syfy at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Full Frontal with Samantha Bee and You’re the Worst.
