If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/26/20

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!

Phoebe’s Choice

The idea of a Batwoman show was a lot more exciting than the show itself, as it turns out. Actual Gotham in the Arrowverse with a queer super heroine, heck yeah! Or so we hoped. I don’t hate the show, but they’ve lost a lot of potential in the way they’ve paced their season, the fact that Kate’s sister Alice is the perennial Big Bad, almost no cool villains, and an at-best-adequate set of supporting characters. But yeah, I still watch it. I’m just not sure we need a season two or three.

Last week started with Kate burying the body of Augustus after she had killed him last episode for how he treated both Beth & her mom. Kate’s dad Jacob & Alice were there as well. Alice blackmailed them into letting her go. Jacob, being the chief of police, and their special squad, The Crows, tasked Sofie to track down Mouse. Alice also was tracking down Mouse, and she convinced Kate to help her. Since he had been attacking other nurses from Arkham Asylum, they staked out the house of one of the nurses he had not yet attacked. Mouse did turn up, but The Crows nabbed him first and they sent him back to Arkham.

Meanwhile, Lucious Fox’s supposed killer was let free after he got a retrial scheduled. Luke Fox later confronted the accused killer, Reggie, who swore he was set up. An assassin then sniped him from across the street. Sophia was also targeted by a hitman but was rescued by one of Kate’s other exes: Julia, the British special agent. Despite learning that Alice set her up to kill Augustus, Kate still agreed to “reunite Alice with Mouse,” who was locked in the basement at Arkham. Kate betrayed Alice though, locking her crazed sister into the basement of the asylum as well. We learned that the Quick Store owner who was there the night Lucious was killed had also been taken out by a professional hit. Jacob was almost taken out by an assassin as well but managed to kill him instead.

I just feel so much of the plot has been ripped from a police procedural, a genre I don’t watch. The Cov19 outbreak cut the series short, but apparently there will still be a few more episodes that air this spring. Let’s hope for some cool villains at least, but don’t hold your breath.

On tonight’s episode, “A Narrow Escape,” Batwoman encounters a new challenge when an old villain resurfaces, testing the heroics of Gotham’s most stand-up citizens. Alice’s limits are tested.

See how everyone stands up to the tests this week on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Westworld & Bob’s Burgers.
