If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/17/19

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!

Phoebe’s Choice

After the deep space time travel adventures of last year, there have been some lineup changes on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which made its season six debut last week. After all, both Coulson and at least one version of Fitz are dead for starters. The team is overall split into two as well, with a space unit and the rest of the team guarding over Earth. Daisey & Jemma are running a skeleton crew on their deep space search for the cryogenically frozen Fitz. They have been off Earth for a half year and fear Fitz could be dead, as the ship he was stored on was split in half.

Back on the third rock from the sun, there was an inter-dimensional breach by a guy who was able to shoot down May’s aircraft. His friend, who was also crossing into our dimension, got trapped in concrete. Mack was the new director, but he was guided by an AI that projected to him as Hologram Coulson. May introduced Mack to her friend Dr. Marcus Benson to try to recruit him to head a new S.H.I.E.L.D. academy. They also needed better science expertise with Jemma & Fitz off world. In space, Jemma found the origin of Fitz’s cryogenic pod that they found, broken in the wreckage of his ship. She wanted to go straight there, but the rest of the crew was homesick and wanted to at least regroup first. They were attacked by much larger ships though, and Jemma seized upon the moment to enter the co-ordinates of where she believed Fitz went.

From the guy who got frozen in concrete, the people on Earth got the co-ordinates of where the extra-dimensional travelers leader, Sarge, was going to come through. He croaked a cryptic warning before finally dying also. They got to the museum where the breach was about to occur, but the invaders destroyed the building and a whole Fury Road-styled 18-wheel truck blasted through a portal and almost killed May. The big reveal: this Sarge guy was a Coulson lookalike with no memory or knowledge of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Whut?? Crai. So Coulson died, but dude came back as two versions of himself anyway?? You go, girl. No, but seriously, this show is always fun, and this season is going to be a quicker ride than we are used to – it is only a 13-episode summer run. So far it seems as promising as any of the other marvelous recent seasons. MCU marches forth!

Oh, and our last reveal of last episode was that Fitz is indeed alive and working in some workshop with aliens, speaking in their language.

On tonight’s episode, “Window of Opportunity,” while Fitz and Enoch struggle in space, Sarge and his team move forward with their mysterious mission on Earth.

See Fitz’s struggle tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Doom Patrol. There’s only two more episodes of that, so #ketchup. Also, check out The New Negroes on Comedy Central, featuring Open Mike Eagle, who I interviewed a few summers ago!
