If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/16/19

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!

Tonight I’m looking forward to checking out the new ABC comedy Bless this Mess. When his great-aunt dies and leaves him a farmhouse, Mike (Dax Shepard, Parenthood) and his wife Rio (Lake Bell, Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later) decide to leave the hustle and bustle of New York City for a quieter, simpler life in Nebraska. However, when they arrive, they discover that their new home is quite the fixer-upper, and things aren’t going to be as easy and laid-back as they had hoped.

I didn’t have a screener available to check out the show ahead of time, but based on the trailer it looks like it could be really fun – a fish-out-of-water comedy with some The Money Pit thrown into the mix. The cast playing the wacky new neighbors is also great – Ed Begley Jr. (Modern Family), Pam Grier (Jackie Brown), David Koechner (The Goldbergs), Lennon Parham (Playing House), and JT Neal (Lab Rats).

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” newlyweds Rio and Mike drop everything to make the move from New York to rural Nebraska in search of a simpler life, but they quickly realize that becoming farmers isn’t as easy as they had hoped.

Don’t miss this new comedy tonight on ABC at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording American Housewife, The Kids Are Alright, black-ish, The Rookie, The Flash, Fosse/Verdon, and Growing Up Chrisley.

On last week’s penultimate episode of The Rookie, Nolen, Lucy, and Jackson were told they each had a certain list of crimes they must complete as primary on in order to take the exam to see if they move forward in their training. Jackson only had three, while Nolan already had his all checked off (thank you, Bishop!), but poor Lucy was way behind and needed seven – and they were told they only had two shifts to complete them all. Jackson got his pretty easily, but Lucy and Bradford were having a hard time finding cases that would work. In the end, they went out on approved overtime and hit up all of them in one fell swoop. But the funniest part was when Bishop and Nolan responded to a silent alarm at a rather large house (Estate? manor? Mansion? Whatever…) and found a guy in a tree in the backyard dangling from a parachute. As he said…he missed the drop zone. LOL Turned out he’d been aiming for Selena Gomez’s house… Luckily for him, the home owner (who turned out to famous rapper will.i.am!)

So tonight’s the season finale. Will all three rookies pass their exam? Will Bishop’s problem/offer from IA (about basically becoming their snitch in order to get out of any charges/repercussions for lying about her foster brother on her application to join the police department) come up again? I don’t know about either of those, but I can’t wait to find out tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Free Fall,” as the rookies prepare for a big exam to see who moves on to the next stage of training, Officer Nolan and Officer Bishop are called to the scene of a murder and learn that the victim may be tied to a potential terrorist attack on the city of Los Angeles.

To see how the rookies do on their big exams, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVR American Housewife, MasterChef Junior, NCIS, The Kids are Alright, Chopped, FBI, Mental Samurai, Bless This Mess, & NCIS: New Orleans.

With only a few episodes left this season, The Flash has some interesting moving parts still flying about in the air. Last episode started with XS running to the future to tell Eobard Thawne, the Reverse Flash, that his plan to defeat Cicada failed. He offered her no advice other than to come clean to her parents about their secret alliance. Back in 2019, the new Cicada revealed to the former one that she was his niece, Grace. She soon hit a police station for a file, killing an innocent cop. Team Flash soon IDed her as Grace from the future. Using the files she stole, Grace tracked the meta she blamed for her parents’ death. Team Flash got to this woman, Vikki, first though.

At the same time, Sherlock discovered some of Thawne’s files in his investigation of XS’s diary. Vikki’s family felt betrayed by her when they learned she was a meta and had been hiding that from them. Orlis, Grace’s uncle, tried to discourage her from her path of revenge and destruction. But she still attacked Vikki’s family at the hospital. When Orlis tried to intervene again, she killed him.

In the final scenes, Sherlock confronted XS in front of everyone about her past. He accurately laid out how Thawne put her up to all of her actions in this timeline. Completely betrayed, Flash locked her in Star Labs’ jail.

What is interesting is that we know that a new Big Bad will be introduced soon, with the news reveal of Godspeed. Will it be a last-minute thing or an indicator of what is going to be on next year’s season?

On tonight’s episode, “Godspeed,” after discovering that Nora is working with Thawne, Barry and Iris disagree about how to handle their daughter in the wake of this shocking news. Team Flash isn’t sure they can trust Nora, so they go through her journal to find out exactly how she came to work alongside their greatest nemesis.

See what the team learns about Nora tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

That’s my only show tonight!
