If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/7/19

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 was the 9-1-1 season premiere we should have gotten. Granted, it would have had to run long because they had to set it up, which is why we got the premiere we did, but boy, did the action they promised us deliver. At the end of the premiere, Buck was at the pier with little Christopher, when he realized the water had all been sucked out to sea and was rushing back to land, forming a tsunami, thus bringing us to last week’s episode. While Buck was having fun at the pier with Christopher, Athena and her daughter, May, were spending time together getting manis and pedis. Because there was so much action, there’s not enough time her to do a full recap. But Buck proved how much he’s grown and how quick-thinking he is by trying to save as many people as he could, piling them all up on top of the firetruck (having been driven by the fire crew stuck now on the Ferris wheel). Unfortunately, when he was trying to rescue a few more who were floating (sort of…) by, Christopher yet again went into the water, ending the episode. Elsewhere, Athena and May got caught up in a huge traffic pileup after the tsunami caused some issues with the power lines and traffic lights. They were okay, but a woman was pretty badly injured, and May was left to handle it on her own when a downed power line cut her off from her mom, who finally was able to get rescue crews and a power guy to the location to turn off the power and rescue the woman.

Possibly the saddest, most moving story line of them all, though, was Maddie, who was on the phone with a young man trapped in his attic, with the water rising. Unfortunately, no matter what they tried, the young man drowned while on the phone with her. It was so sad, and Maddie broke down. But then her supervisor asks her to help triage – not the callers but the 9-1-1 personnel themselves, since more would be handling calls like Maddie herself had. Horrifying for all those involved, and it really makes you think of that end of things when tragedies hit.

Meanwhile, the rest of our gang was out on boats to help find & rescue people, not knowing that Buck and Christopher were in horrible danger…which leads us to tonight’s episode. They obviously can’t kill off the kid. This isn’t Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead here. LOL But that doesn’t mean we won’t get a lot of drama on tonight’s conclusion!!

On tonight’s episode, “The Searchers,” Athena, Maddie, Bobby and the 118 races to save lives after a massive tsunami hits the Santa Monica Pier and Buck fears the worst when Christopher goes missing. Rhonda Rousey guest stars.

See if Buck can find Christopher in time tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Bob Hearts Abishola, All Rise, Halloween Baking Championship, Prodigal Son, & Halloween Cake-Off.

ABC’s The Good Doctor has continued to be a show I look forward to each week. On last week’s episode, Shaun’s colleagues all told him about the best dating experiences, trying to convince Shaun to give dating another shot. But it was Claire’s suggestion of a much lower-pressure, less-formal chips and couch date that got Shaun to change his mind and ask Carly out again, showing up at her lab with a bag of chips. The two seemed to be hitting it off, sitting on the floor having casual conversation. Meanwhile, Claire had given her bipolar mother/roommate Breeze a week to find a new place after she went off her meds. So Breeze managed to turn things around and started actively looking for a new apartment. However, Claire eventually told her mother that she didn’t need to move out, so long as she continued to take her meds. Claire also had a win at work – Lim chose her over Morgan as the first of the third-years to lead her own surgery.

Everything seems to be going too well for Claire – it’s likely that the situation with her mother is going to take a turn for the worse and that a relapse is imminent. How will this affect her ability to lead her very first surgery? Shaun and Carly seem perfect for one another, but it’s just a matter of time before another one of Shaun’s eccentricities causes another speed bump in their relationship. Carly is incredibly patient with him, due to her experience with an autistic family member, but will Shaun ever become too much for her?

On tonight’s episode, “Claire,” Dr. Claire Brown faces complications at home and work as she prepares to lead her first surgery; the staff must treat a fisherman’s injuries without damaging his prize catch. Robert Sean Leonard (House) guest stars.

Don’t miss the fish attached to the patient tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording All Rise, Bluff City Law, 9-1-1, and Prodigal Son.
