If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/3/19

Just when you thought you’d seen the last of the Dreamworks Dragons franchise, NBC is bringing back Hiccup (Jay Baruchel), Astrid (America Ferrera), Stoick (Gerard Butler), Gobber (Craig Ferguson), Fishlegs (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), and more of your favorite characters for the all-new animated holiday special, How to Train Your Dragon Homecoming.

This new tale is set 10 years after the end of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, just before that film’s epilogue. The latest generation of Vikings in New Berk hasn’t grown up with dragons and are unaware of the great bond that had once existed between dragons and humans. So as New Berk prepares to celebrate the Snoggletog Festival, Hiccup decides to put on a pageant to celebrate the dragons, which leads to some fun and exciting moments.

How to Train Your Dragon is probably my favorite animated franchise, so I’m excited that we are going to get a new story set in this world, especially with the original voice cast reprising their roles! I am really looking forward to checking out tonight’s holiday special.

Don’t miss it tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Making It, The Resident, The Flash, Arrow, The Purge, and Treadstone.

One of my favorite country music artists is Brad Paisley. He’s been a great host for years now for the annual country music awards, along with Carrie Underwood. So when I heard he was doing a special this year, I jumped right on it. Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special will be performed at Nashville’s iconic War Memorial Auditorium, and Paisley’s signature humor, unexpected surprises, heartfelt field pieces, and rousing musical performances will be featured along with some of Paisley’s friends and the biggest names in entertainment, including country sensation Kelsea Ballerini, iconic musical group Hootie & the Blowfish, Jonas Brothers, host of ABC’s The Bachelor franchise Chris Harrison, NFL legend Peyton Manning, superstars Tim McGraw and Darius Rucker, Carrie Underwood and more. I’m hoping it’ll be a lot of fun, especially if you’re a country music fan.

Because after that is my favorite annual holiday special, CMA Country Christmas. This special has been around for years, hosted by some of country music’s biggest names, not the least of which is this year’s host, Trisha Yearwood. She’s joined by some great singers and performers, including Kristin Chenoweth, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, CeCe Winans, Brett Young, & many more. There’s always a lot of fun Christmas music, videos, and stories on this special, and I can’t wait to see what happens this year.

Check out all the fun Christmas performances tonight on ABC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Chopped Junior, Chopped, Making It, & The Misery Index.

The first half of the two-part fall finale of The Flash aired last week, and let me tell you, it definitely did not disappoint. From Ramsey poisoning the Scarlet Speedster to the girls from The Citizen teaming up to tackle a huge story, this episode was truly one of the series’ best. We even got to watch as the typically cold Killer Frost had a vulnerable moment while tasked with saving a teammate’s life and the speed force made a much-needed reappearance in Barry’s mind as he attempted to fight off Ramsey. Throughout the episode, I found it heart-wrenching watching Ramsey prey on Barry’s fear of dying in the impending crisis and abandoning his family and friends, especially his future daughter Nora. Although, I’ve got to say without a doubt the most memorable part of the episode was the chilling cliffhanger it left us on. At the end of the episode, it seemed as if the speed force had appealed to Barry’s altruistic side, but when the speedster awoke, Iris was quick to realize that he wasn’t her beloved husband but rather someone who had been taken over by the dark side.

On tonight’s episode, “The Last Temptation of Barry Allen, Pt. 2,” with the Flash battling Bloodwork, Iris and Cisco fight to help Barry take control of himself before he’s lost forever; the rest of the team fight to reclaim control of Central City from Bloodwork’s growing army.

To see if Central City and its hero can be saved from Bloodwork’s wrath, tune in to The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Arrow, The Resident, and The Voice.

OK, so something weird has been going on in the Arrowverse. Firstly, no sign of the Legends of Tomorrow, while Batwoman deals with her estranged and insane sister Alice, and on The Flash and Arrow? Both of the original shows have been dealing with the coming Crisis on Infinite Earths as the central theme to every episode. In fact, Oliver has been jumping through hoops for The Monitor each of the first 6 episodes of this final season of Arrow.

For example: Last week he had Oliver stuck in a time loop to resolve some old drama he was harboring. He woke up in a world in which Quentin Lance was both still alive and mayor of Star City. The loop kept ending when Lance would die. Soon he found that Earth-2’s Black Canary, now a full time Earth-1 resident, was also stuck in the same loop. The two clunk heads with Lyla who both put Oliver in the loop and had betrayed them all to become loyal to the extra dimensional being, The Monitor.

They kept losing the reborn Lance over and over until in one instance, Lyla herself showed up to shoot him in the head. She was trying to show them that saving his life was not the objective in this space. On one of the go rounds, Black Canary got to say an honest goodbye to her father (from another dimension). This zapped her out of the loop. After a long heart to heart with Lance that Oliver had, he was also sent on to the next point. First he conferred with Lyla about The Monitor’s intentions in all this, then he was reunited with Black Canary and his time traveling kids on the island where he once was trapped for five years. One more mission before the big Crisis!!

Also: on The Flash last week, Barry made a choice that to me signaled maybe he’d turn evil and become the time remnant that traveled back in time to become his season 3 Big Bad: Savitar. So who knows… He may die too. They kept forecasting he will, but idk if they’ll go through with it. Either way, the fun has really begun and the most epic crossover in TV history is about to erupt next week.

On tonight’s episode, “Purgatory,” Oliver’s mission takes him to Lian Yu where he tries to ignore the repercussions of the looming Crisis until he receives help from an old friend. Meanwhile, a united Team Arrow faces a recognizable villain. Byron Mann guest stars.

See who Oliver and Team Arrow meet tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

I’m also watching The Flash & Treadstone.
