If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/8/19

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

Tonight, The Flash returns to The CW to kick off its sixth season. As the fifth season came to a close, Ralph realized that Eobard Thawne had tricked Nora into traveling into the past, kicking off events that would ultimately cause the destruction of the dagger that was suppressing his powers and keeping him in prison in the future. However, the group found themselves in a quandary and had to choose between stopping Cicada in the present and letting Thawne go free in the future or vice-versa. After Team Flash managed to stop Cicada, they quickly headed to the future to try to stop Thawne, who was now free. However, in their efforts to stop Thawne, they spawned off a new timeline in which Nora’s powers were fading and glitching. Thawne told Barry the only way to save his daughter was to return her to the Negative Speed Force, but Nora refused to do this because the NSF would fill her with hate and anger like Thawne. So she accepted the consequences and allowed herself to just fade away and be erased from the timeline. Afterwards, Sherloque headed back to his own Earth, Cisco decided to take the cure and eliminate his powers, Joe became the CCPD’s new captain, and Iris and Barry found a goodbye message from their daughter, saying that she had no regrets about her decisions and that she was thankful for the time she got to spend with them. In the post credits scene, the date on the newspaper in the time vault changed to 2019, hinting to the upcoming Crisis crossover event.

So as the new season begins, how will Barry and Iris deal with the loss of Nora? How will Cisco deal with having no powers, and will that change his role on the team? What crazy new version of Dr. Harry Wells will show up this year to join Team Flash? And what new evil enemy awaits the team this season?

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, I got the chance to talk about the series with some of the cast members. You can watch my interview videos from the press room at NoReruns.net.

On tonight’s premiere, “Into the Void,” while Barry and Iris deal with the loss of their daughter, the team faces their greatest threat yet — one that threatens to destroy all of Central City; Killer Frost has a brush with death that will change her relationship with Caitlin forever.

Meet the team’s newest threat tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Bless This Mess, mixed-ish, black-ish, Emergence, This Is Us, The Resident, and In a Man’s World.

Megan’s Choice

Bless This Mess is quirky and offbeat, which is right up my alley. I love how Rio and Mike try hard to fit in but end up screwing things up before they figure it out. Whether it is naming the chickens they are supposed to eat or trying to fix their own plumbing, things never quite work out the way they should. This little town makes me happy because they all love each other in their own special way. I love Dax Shepherd, and this show suits his comedic talent and timing well, especially last episode, when he was dealing with the snakes in the wall. His squeals were hilarious.

On tonight’s episode, “Omaha,” the ladies head to Omaha for their annual gyno exams, but the trip quickly goes off the rails. Jealous of Beau’s new dating profile on FarmersOnly, Kay is determined to find a guy to hook up with, with Rio as her wing woman. Back home, Mike, Rudy, and Beau bond when an accident leaves them stranded in a tree. Michael Ian Black guest stars.

To see how the men get out of the tree, tune in to ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, NCIS, NCIS: New Orleans, FBI, New Amsterdam, Emergence, The Flash, The Resident, mixed-ish, and This Is Us.
