If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/6/19

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!

Today, Netflix releases the first half of the fifth and final season of Fuller House. As the fourth season came to a close, the She Wolf Pack went to a performance of Hamilton, but Kimmy’s water broke just as the show was about to start. So DJ and Stephanie rushed her off to the hospital. Meanwhile, Jimmy was having doubts about becoming a father (little did he know it was about to be a little too late for that), but Fernando and Max calmed his fears. As Kimmy gave birth to a baby girl, Jimmy proposed to Stephanie, who, of course, accepted—”Stephanie Tanner, you are now officially going to be a Gibbler!” Also in the waiting room were Jackson and Rocki, who had reconciled – Jackson had made fun of her at prom, but she forgave him, and during the car ride to the hospital, the two seem to have realized they still had feelings for one another.

I’ve really enjoyed this revival series, and it’s sad to think there are just 18 episodes left. What crazy situations await the Tanners and Gibblers? We know there’s at least one more wedding in the works. Will the Olsen twins actually make an appearance before it’s all over? (Seems doubtful.) How will they explain the disappearance of Aunt Becky – is it too soon to joke about her legal situation? What will Stephanie and Jimmy name their daughter? This is one of the few Netflix shows I’ve managed to keep up with, and I look forward to checking out the new episodes tonight.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Blacklist, Van Helsing, Encore!, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Servant, The Graham Norton Show, The Mandalorian, The World According to Jeff Goldblum, and Top Elf.

It’s been an emotional season so far on Hawaii Five-0. Last week, Junior and his dad made some peace between the two of them after his parents’ house was broken into. Junior learned that although his dad had refused to be in contact with him after Junior joined the military and went overseas, his dad had kept in contact with Junior’s CO, exchanging letter after letter after letter, keeping tabs on Junior. Meanwhile, Danny made up a story about his place having mold (again…LOL) in order to move in temporarily with Steve. But really, he was moving in to just be there for Steve after Steve’s mom had been killed…well, the week before for us…and it was the first Thanksgiving without her.

This week seems to be the week for Adam and his trials…yet again. After everything he’s already had to deal with, I’m not liking the direction I see this going in, given the episode description for both this week and next. Argh. But I guess we’ll see how it goes!

On tonight’s episode, “O ‘oe, a ‘owau, nalo ia mea (You and Me, It is Hidden),” when Adam’s girlfriend, Tamiko (Brittany Ishibashi), is kidnapped right in front of him, he shuts out Five-0 and breaks all the rules in order to get her back. Also, Five-0 investigates three seemingly unconnected homicides.

See how Adam handles Tamiko’s kidnapping tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods.

There is a never ending stream of crime dramas on television these days, and yes I do suggest a lot of them, but to me each one is worth your time for a different reason. Tonight, Magnum P.I. deserves your time because it brings us a different view of the crime-fighting process from the eyes of a good-hearted private investigator. Magnum is genuinely a good man who truly cares about his clients and finding the truth. His recent partnership with Higgins is a fantastic idea because the connection between those two is wonderful and makes them even better at their job. My one complaint is that I think it’s taking too long to have a crossover episode with Hawaii Five-0, seeing as they have a few of the same recurring characters and are both based in Hawaii. Magnum and McGarrett would be fun to watch, not only because I think they are both very attractive but because their personalities would make for an exciting episode of dangerous behavior.

On tonight’s episode, “Blood Brothers,” Magnum, flooded with memories of his tour in Afghanistan, helps his fallen friend’s brother search for a now-grown Afghan boy who may have been a victim of trafficking,

Find out if he can save the young boy before it’s too late tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five-0, and Charmed.

Last week’s Harley Quinn premiere on DCU was an oversized mallet-smashing success! This launch could not have been any stronger. We opened with Joker upstaging Harley as she was heisting “The Whites” for billions of dollars that were stacked up. Batman showed up to break things up, and Joker threw Harley to him as a diversion as he made his getaway. He promised to come recuse her from Arkham Asylum soon. “Tonight…oh, well, I’m busy tonight, but tomorrow.”

Fast forward to a half year later, and she was still stuck in there, convinced he was coming to get her. Poison Ivy is her best friend in there, and after another half year, she finally caused a riot and broke out when Riddler grew an orange tree for her from a seed he procured from his feces. Gross, yeah. This show is kind of graphic but very funny. Harley repeatedly suggested Batman “fucks bats” and Commissioner Gordon was an anxiety ridden cursing lunatic.

Once they escaped, Harley stayed with Ivy and her “Little Shop of Horrors”-esque roommate “Fred.” She was still convinced that Joker loved her. He doesn’t. So Ivy worked with Riddler on a plan to capture Harley, and Batman and Joker must choose which one gets dropped in acid. Joker picked Harley, because only HE can kill the Bat. Harley got dropped into what was actually margarita mix, where she came to the realization that Joker really loved Batman and their sick co-dependent relationship. She went off and changed her outfit to the “Suicide Squad” version, including the hair dye. She went to Joker’s lair to break up with him, and he sicced his thugs on her. She lost her mallet in the fray but started beating ass with a baseball bat. She won and brought the whole building down on Joker. But she refused to kill him, cause she wanted him to suffer by watching her live her Best Life without him.

This premiere episode was vulgar and hilarious. I laughed more to this episode than I have to the first three Rick & Morty episodes this year. This show is reallllllly good, and I hope you find a way to watch it.

On today’s episode, “A High Bar,” determined to become one of the vaunted Legion of Doom, Harley attempts to make a big splash by crashing one of their criminal enterprises with the help of her BFF, Poison Ivy. Will she succeed, or be humiliated in the process?

Don’t miss it this morning on DCU at 9AM/8AMc.
