If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/26/19

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!

Last week’s The Rookie was a good one. While on a disturbance call at a restaurant, Officer Nolan was putting handcuffs on a crazy young woman who went after a valet with a knife, and her dress accidentally ripped, exposing her (ugly) undergarment (bra or whatever). Unfortunately, she turned out to be the baby mama of a big gang leader (the son of the original leader, who was currently in prison), and neither of them liked that Nolan “disrespected” her. So the guy put out a “greenlight” on Nolan, and he was very nearly killed that night after picking up dinner to take home. After talking to Captain Andersen, he decided to go in to work the next day, although she told him that he would be riding with her instead of Bishop, who would be working with the rest of the precinct to shake up the gang. Sergeant Grey then visited the leader’s father in prison to get him to order his son to drop the greenlight. It worked…but then it didn’t.

The son was a complete idiot and lured Nolan and Andersen to a house with a false break-in call and then kidnapping them, not caring when he learned that he’d taken a police captain in addition to the rookie and had her zip-tied to a chair. The guy then pushed Andersen into the pool, still tied to the chair. She was able to dislocate/break her thumb and get out of the restraints, pulling one guy into the pool and shooting him after grabbing his gun and then shooting the other sidekick while Nolan struggled to get out of his restraints. The leader ran off, shooting back at them as he ran, and he got in a lucky shot that hit Andersen in the neck, killing her almost immediately. Nolan finally broke free and dived in to grab her as she sank to the bottom of the pool, but there was nothing he could do. The others arrived as he sat there with her head in his lap. Sergeant Grey then stormed into the guy’s prison cell and got him to give up his son’s location or where he’d be heading, and they were able to set up a road block and stop him. He surrendered without a fight, which was kind of a pisser, honestly. LOL

It was a really sad episode, and I have no doubt Nolan is going to feel guilty about it for a while. If he hadn’t come to work, she’d be alive. It isn’t his fault, really, but he’s going to feel that way, I’m sure. It’ll be interesting to see if that plays out in future episodes.

On tonight’s episode, “The Shake Up,” a massive earthquake rocks the city and throws everyone’s patrols and its citizens into chaos. Meanwhile, Agent Russo recommends Officer Nolan for a protective detail of Brad Hayes, a man whose dealings have put a target on his head. Sarah Shahi & Joel McHale guest star.

To see how the earthquake affects the city and our favorite officers, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Housewife, Ellen’s Game of Games, MasterChef Junior, NCIS, The Kids Are Alright, Chopped, FBI, Mental Samurai, NCIS: New Orleans, & Miracle Workers,

Seven is a weird total number of episodes for a TV show right? Well, don’t let that keep you from tuning in tonight for the final episode of the funny and quirky Miracle Workers. It features Steve Buscemi (Reservoir Dogs, Fargo) as God, Creator of Earth. He’s sort of a slovenly God tho, and to be quite frank, crass and dumb. He was going to destroy Earth because of his sagging popularity and extended the date of destruction by two weeks only to see one of his subordinates lose a bet so she has to eat a worm. The crux of the wager? If Eliza can fulfill the impossible prayer of two young adults wishing their crush on each other would work out, the world is saved. It has NOT proved an easy task!

We started last episode with a cool reveal: God has parents, and they were played by Margaret Cho (the funniest lesbian ever) and Chris Parnell. God showed up unexpected at their house, presumably in some “higher Heaven,” to pitch his new idea that he wants to replace Earth with: “Lazy Susans.” It is supposed to be a restaurant on a floating river with a buffet effect, where you use a claw to select the items floating by that you want to eat. So far everyone in this show hated the idea, and His family was no exception. Another incrediballz, hillair appearance was Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) as one of God’s older siblings. Half the comedy of this episode was watching God’s family all lay in hard on how dumb they think all of his ideas were. After all, a giraffe, in God’s description of his creation, is just a dog with long legs and a leg for a neck.

Eliza and her team in the Department of Answered Prayers realized the date their human targets were about to go on must be shifted from a depressing movie to a basketball game, where they might be pried into kissing on the kiss cam. Craig thought the pressure of the kiss cam would be too much and would backfire, so they locked him in a closet, but turned out he was right. In fact, it turned out so bad that Sam, the young human they were trying to manipulate, accidentally killed the mascot of the team they were watching, knocking him down the stairs so his skull smashed on concrete steps. They were both totally freaked out by the night’s events and went home separately – no kiss.

The incessant belittlements from his family about his past projects made God decide to keep his Earth project going to spite them. He came back to Heaven to tell his workers the good news, only it seems the bet they made was sealed in a Divine bomb device that was going to destroy Earth in one hour and twenty-one minutes. End part 6 of 7.

Well, here we go! This show is based off a novel and was paced as they saw it could best be played, I reckon. It is sheer genius, mostly funny, and if you haven’t seen it yet, you are not winning. =p

On tonight’s episode, “1 Hour,” Craig risks it all in a desperate attempt to save Earth and all of mankind.

See if Craig can save Earth tonight on TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

The Flash is off this week, so this is all I’m watching!
