If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/23/20

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!

Two of my favorite actors to watch on TV are Jason Biggs (American Pie movie franchise) and Maggie Lawson (Psych), and tonight they’re starring in the new FOX comedy Outmatched. The premise is really fun: Two ordinary, blue-collar, working-class parents are raising four children…three of whom are geniuses. It’s a hard life trying to nurture their children’s amazing minds while not able to keep up with or understand them. They’re determined to give all of their kids as normal a childhood as possible, but for the three big-brained kiddos, that’s more difficult than either parent anticipates.

The show also stars Tisha Campbell (Dr. Ken, My Wife and Kids), Jack Stanton (The Mick), Connor Kalopsis (The Grinder), Ashley Boettcher (Lost in Oz), and Oakley Bull (Beautiful Boy).

I’ve seen tonight’s premiere, and it’s a lot of fun. Biggs and Lawson play off each other well, and you can see their love for their kids, even though most of the time they’re scared spitless of them as well. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to more.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Kay and Mike cope with raising three high-IQ children.

Don’t miss tonight’s premiere on FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching Last Man Standing, Deputy, Will & Grace, Perfect Harmony, & Beat Bobby Flay.

At this point, there has been a staggering amount of Star Trek content put out in the last half century: there have been eight series which combine to total 764 episodes across 34 seasons of television, plus twelve feature films! That’s a lottttttt of life to waste on Gene Roddenberry’s vision of sci-fi, to say the least, and tonight we have one more show to add to that mounting total: Star Trek: Picard.

Based on the further adventures of Jean-Luc Picard, the former captain of the Starship Enterprise in the series Star Trek: The Next Generation, this show will feature many familiar faces. We are expecting the Borg & the Romulans both to feature prominently as villains in this series. Though he’s dead in canonical terms, we’ve been told to expect to see Data. Also, Deana Troi is coming back! Not gonna lie… I have always had a huge crush on her. Also coming to this show is Seven of Nine, with her bad self. Considering the special effects we have seen on recent shows like Star Trek: Discovery, we can hedge bets that this show will likely be visually spectacular. I am not the hugest Trekkie of all time, but I am willing to give this show a serious chance. So let’s hope it rocks!

The first episode is out now on CBSAA. New episodes will air weekly on CBSAA at 3:01AM/2:01AMc overnight on Wednesday nights/Thursday mornings.

I’ll also be watching what the fork goes down on The Good Place.

Tonight is the season premiere of Station 19, and I am incredibly excited! The season two finale was full of drama, happiness, and heartbreak. We were left wondering what would happen to Travis after he was arrested for assault and battery. I hope they throw the charges out because he was only defending Vic. One of the other intense moments was between Andy and Sullivan when they finally kissed and were in the process of getting it on when Sullivan changed his mind…not because he didn’t want Andy but because he started to have pain in his bad leg again. Andy didn’t see that. All she saw was the rejection. I’m sure it’ll get worked out, but it was a hard scene to watch for sure. This season I hope they let some of these characters have a bit more happiness in their lives, because last season had a ton of trauma.

On tonight’s season three premiere, “I Know This Bar,” after a car crashes into Joe’s Bar, Andy and Sullivan lead the team of firefighters as they work to rescue their fellow crewmates Ben and Pruitt, Grey Sloan doctors and interns, and bar patrons before the building comes crumbling down.

To see if they can save the bar patrons before it’s too late, tune in to ABC at 8/7c. Then stay tuned in to ABC for the crossover episode on Grey’s Anatomy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Everything’s Gonna Be Okay, Outmatched, Deputy, Grey’s Anatomy, Perfect Harmony, Beat Bobby Flay, and A Million Little Things.
