If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/28/19

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!

Kyle’s Choice

On last week’s episode of Hulu’s Four Weddings and a Funeral, we saw the fallout of Duffy and Maya’s breakup. Duffy took it really hard, becoming completely unhinged, showing up to work disheveled and with a hangover and giving his students useless pop culture quizzes. The headmaster assigned Tabby (the teacher that Duffy left to be with Maya) to monitor his classes, which was a bit awkward for both of them. Gemma gave Duffy a tough love speech and told him to get his stuff together and move on. This was the kick in the pants he needed, and he finally cleaned himself up and started dressing more like an adult. Afterwards, Duffy suggested to Tabby that since they were both single, they could try again, but she revealed that she was already seeing another writer and then was picked up in a car with a license plate that implied that she was dating Nicholas Sparks.

Meanwhile, Maya joined Ainsley and her assistant Tony 2 for a night out at a gay bar, where she ran into her boss, Andrew Aldridge. Andrew had been on a date with Tony a while back that he had completely forgotten about, even though the two had made a connection. Tony was upset to see Andrew and accused him of being old and out of touch with the community, saying that people refer to him as LGBT-Rex. The next day, Marcus and Maya were looking into a charity project that Andrew could take on in order to improve his image, and Marcus suggested revamping the struggling community theater. Marcus had seen Maya endlessly watching clips of The Sound of Music practices and Kickstarter fundraiser that Kash had sent to her, and so this was fresh on his mind. However, Maya was still trying to distance herself from Kash for Ainsley’s sake and didn’t like the idea of working so closely with him on a renovation project. But once Andrew found out that Maya had a connection to the theater project, he was sold on the idea and even put her in charge of the day-to-day work.

As Kash prepared for his big return to the stage, best friend Basheer was still feeling guilty for “stealing” Fatima from him. Despite Kash’s many attempts to assure him that everything was fine, Basheer still kept apologizing. So as a way for his friend to prove he was sorry, Kash asked Basheer to help revamp the theater’s sound and lighting system. Now that things were forgiven, Basheer asked Kash to step in as his chaperone for a date with Fatima, which led to a hilariously awkward situation as Nani felt the need to constantly tell Kash how Basheer made a much better mate for her granddaughter. But things weren’t all bad for Kash. Over the course of fixing up the theater, he and Maya had once again become quite close and even kissed. However, it looks like things may soon hit the fan, as Tony 2 (who had reconciled with Andrew) attended the opening night performance and could definitely sense there was something between Kash and Maya… There’s no doubt he’s going to go back and report this to Ainsley.

And speaking of Ainsley, she had finished up Bryce’s room and was ready to say goodbye. However, Bryce wasn’t ready to let her go and asked Ainsley to help redesign his garden. The two went on a sightseeing trip, where Bryce made his move, kissing Ainsley. She was taken by surprise and said that she wanted to keep their relationship professional since she was already seeing someone, to which Bryce admitted that he only asked her to work on the garden in order to be close to her. Later that evening, Ainsley received a “You Up” text from Garrett, to which she responded that it was time for them to break up. Garrett seemed unphased, accidentally sending another “You Up” message to Aisnley’s phone that was meant for the next girl on his list.

Ainsley had been upset that Maya had to keep canceling their plans together due to working late at the theater. However, she was unaware that Kash was involved in this situation. How is she going to react when she likely hears the news from her assistant? Will Kash and Maya finally make a go for it, or is the ever-looming wrath of Ainsley going to prevent Maya from pursuing this relationship she so obviously wants? We’ve got just three episodes and two weddings to go. Who will be the final two couples tying the knot? I’m still convinced/not giving up hope that our final wedding will be Maya/Kash, but who will get married before them? Will Ainsley patch things up with Bryce and give that relationship a go? Will a romantic relationship form between Duffy and Gemma? I’d really enjoy seeing a Basheer/Fatima wedding, as we’d get a glimpse into another culture’s wedding ceremony, but it would be tough to work in a way story-wise for all of our main American characters to be in attendance.

On this week’s episode, “Game Night,” Maya and Kash get to know each other behind Ainsley’s back. Tony 2 realizes he and Andrew come from very different worlds. Ainsley and Craig play matchmaker, as do Gemma and Duffy.

Check it out now on Hulu.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Hollywood Game Night, MasterChef, BH90210, Hypnotize Me, South Side, and Younger.
