If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/3/19

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

I’m so excited because tonight is the season premiere of So You Think You Can Dance. It’s hard to believe it’s the 16th season, but it is! It started in July 2005 – almost exactly 15 years ago. Crazy. This season, Cat, Nigel, and Mary are back. This go round, they’re joined by Laurieann Gibson, Lady Gaga’s longtime choreographer and creative director, and SYTYCD alum Dominic “D-Trix” Sandoval. Dominic was one of my favorites on his season, way back to season 3. He’s got a huge personality and seems like a sweet guy, so I’m excited to have him back on the judging panel.

On tonight’s episode, “Judges Audition #1,” the first round of auditions begins.

Don’t miss out on the fun tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Best Baker in America & Wedding Cake Championship.

Phoebe’s Choice

I don’t know where these streaming services get 3AM as the ideal time to drop new shows, but last night in the dead of night, the latest episodes of L.A.’s Finest went live on Spectrum, which is a cable provider available to some people. I’ve been looking for shows to fill the summer with, so I binged the first seven episodes last week. This is a weird Bad Boys spinoff that follows Syd Burnett, a supporting character from the second film. Syd is now in L.A., partnered with Nancy McKenna, played by the very much still vivacious Jessica Alba.

Last week’s episodes saw Syd dealing with the discovery that her father had a second family and that she has a half-sister who was recently shot. The shady cartel gunman, Arlo, was limping down the beach with his own gunshot wound when he busted in on two lifeguards getting frisky in one of the lookout stations. He made them patch up his wound at gunpoint. We only got a minute of him, but they took the time to introduce a new villain played by Jake f’n Busey.

District Attorney Patrick McKenna, Nancy’s hubby, saw video of Dante at the scene of the “Santa Monica shooting” and started tracking down his history. While Syd & Nance were on scene of the lifeguard incident, Arlo got warned by his mysterious femme fatale boss that he was stacking up too many bodies and more of his violence wouldn’t be covered up. As he got off the phone call, we saw he’d already killed the other lifeguard. Back at the hospital, Syd was like 800% jelly of her shot in the gut half-sister. Dante called Arlo and promised to kill him. He wasn’t wrong tho… As he soon tracked him to a warehouse, he started beating him to death. Nancy and the Bens arrived just after Dante shot Arlo dead, and they arrested him. Syd finally started bonding with her sister, and the episode ended when Nancy was confronted by her husband, who wanted to know her history with Dante.

This show is not the best, not the worst. But I guess I’m along for the ride.

On the first new episode, “Dead Men Tell No Tales,” McKenna is forced to come clean about her past to her husband, and both she and Syd attempt to convince him to bend the rule of law to save a life. In the meantime, our team find themselves trailing a group of thieves who managed to steal millions of dollars’ worth of untraceable diamonds.

Then on the second new episode, “Dangerous Minds,” it’s busy for our team of detectives as they continue to investigate the case of the missing diamonds, and the task force executes a major drug bust. With the threat of Knox looming, both Syd and McKenna must confront some of their deepest secrets yet.

If you’re a Spectrum customer, be sure to check out LA’s Finest now on On Demand.

I’ll also be watching American Dad!
