If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/13/19

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

My pick once again this week is #OneChicago. Boy, I’m enjoying these shows. I’ll just do a quick recap of each one with the highlights… Chicago Med: Creepy vampire kids. The girl was clearly either a really bad girl (not evil, but just…bad!) or delusional. She had the boy so snowed into thinking they were both vampires, because his medical problem caused him to be blistered by the sun. As for relationships… Ethan and April are trying to get pregnant, but while April is wanting to take a laidback approach, Ethan is all about tracking her cycles, being proactive, etc, and it’s pushing April the wrong way – so much so that she nearly kisses Dr. Marcel at the party he and Maggie threw. Thankfully Ethan didn’t see, but could this spell trouble? Guess we’ll see! Oh, and speaking of Maggie… She met a guy while getting her chemotherapy who was also there getting his. Sparks!

Then on Chicago Fire: Severide was approached by a young female lieutenant from OFI (Office of Fire Investigations) who wanted to bring him in to help with the backlog of cases, but he turned her down, said his place was there at 51. But not much later, Boden received a transfer order, sending Severide to OFI. Boden thought for a moment it was Severide’s choice, but Severide thought it was the female lieutenant. But they were both wrong. It was Grissom. Dun dun dun! Grissom had a good point, that they had to go where they were needed…and Severide has good instincts when it comes to sniffing out arsons. So they made a deal that Severide will go over to OFI to help with the backlog, and after a few months, he’ll be free to decide whether he wants to stay or return to 51. Meanwhile, Herrmann clashed with a uniformed CPD officer at a scene, and it looked like he was going to get in big trouble over it (even though he wasn’t really wrong about it and the officer was a repeat reporter douche bag), but fortunately for him, part of Severide’s deal with Grissom is that Grissom is calling off the complaint against Herrmann.

And then finally, on Chicago PD: Darius the big-time drug slinger/gang dude (played by the great Michael Beach) was pulled back in as a CI when a dangerous drug was getting put out on the streets. Things seemed to be going okay…until one of Hailey’s CIs (who had basically become a professional CI for a lot of people/organizations) thought he was smarter than he was and walked into CPD (and into Intelligence’s operational space in the basement!) and showed his face in front of Darius…who then had someone kill him. That really shook Hailey big-time. She felt responsible, but frankly, the guy was an idiot. Not that he deserved to be killed, but dang… And while I won’t spoil it, if you saw the preview for this week’s episode, you know tonight is going to be life changing. Eek!

On tonight’s Chicago Med, “Too Close to the Sun,” Maggie gets unsettling news about a new friend and breaks protocol to support him. One of the doctors from the Med family is rushed into emergency surgery after a violent assault. A social media influencer lets his users vote on medical advice, forcing Dr. Charles to make a decision.

Then on Chicago Fire, “Seeing is Believing,” Severide begins his assignment at the Office of Fire Investigation and gets off on the wrong foot when, despite his orders, he reopens an old case. When the cause of an apartment fire hits close to home, Herrmann is on a mission to get to the bottom of it. Kidd finds herself burning the candle at both ends.

Finally, on Chicago PD, “No Regrets,” after injuring herself while pursuing a suspect, Burgess receives a shocking diagnosis. A homicide case turns into a missing persons case, with a sinister twist. Voight has to decide between justice and the letter of the law.

Spend the evening in Chicago with me tonight on NBC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Guy’s Grocery Games & S.W.A.T.

Phoebe’s Choice

This year’s installation of American Horror Story has been a weird one. It has ghosts and murder, but what season doesn’t have at least some grisly chop ’em up gore? And ghosts? Ghosts are pretty standard fare on this show. But the 80s aesthetic has been the strongest aspect of the season, with very few characters standing out as particularly enthralling or unique unto the show. Oh, also, tonight’s finale is the ninth episode. Ninth season, nine episodes, so maybe it’s a numerology thing. I said, weird.

So things have basically been building up to this massive concert headlined by Billy Idol at the murder camp that has been the centerpiece to this show all along. Margaret, the owner of the camp in the modern day and the only survivor of the Jingles massacre in the 70s, planned on killing all the bands who attended to keep their ghosts partying at her property forever. The Midnight Stalker was there to both see Idol and to kill Brook. Brook was determined to kill him too though, so I guess Satan or God gets the last say there. There was also a planned massacre of concert goers. Lastly, Mr Jingles seemed to have traveled through a death portal to a space that he could picnic with his dead mom who he murdered forty some years ago when he was just a child.

So this hasn’t been the best season of AHS, but don’t fret, it’s almost over!

On tonight’s season finale, “Final Girl,” Camp Redwood draws in a lost soul looking for closure.

Find out who the lost soul is tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching South Park, the Cake season finale, Castle Rock, and Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.

Megan’s Choice

I wasn’t expecting Nancy Drew to have as many scary moments as it does. Every time the ghost of Lucy shows up, it gives me chills. Now we have George who got possessed and so many unanswered questions surrounding the death of Tiffany, so I’m sure this season is going to continue to spook us all. One thing for sure is Nancy and Nick are one of the new hottest couples on television, and I look forward to seeing where their relationship goes.

On tonight’s episode, “The Mystery of Blackwood Lodge,” while trying to uncover the truth about a long-buried history between Lucy Sable and Ryan Hudson, Nancy finds herself in the curious position of having to strike a deal with Horseshoe Bay’s newest and most suspect widower.

To find out what kind of history Lucy and Ryan have together, tune in to The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago PD, Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, The Masked Singer, Riverdale, and S.W.A.T.
