If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/12/22

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 tonight is the complete first season premiere of Easy-Bake Battle on Netflix. You all know I’m a sucker for cooking competition shows, and some of the most entertaining ones involve home cooks, not professional chefs. And the fact that this one is named after the Easy-Bake Oven of my youth (I mean, I’m assuming! LOL) is a bonus.

On this new series, talented home cooks put their skills and creativity to the test making fast and easy dishes that are wildly delicious — and worthy of a big cash prize. Antoni Porowski (from the 2018 reboot of Queer Eye) is host, and I think he should be pretty fun to watch, so I’m eager to check it out!

Stream the whole first season now on Netflix.

I’ll also be watching Chicago Med, Survivor, The Conners, The Goldbergs, Chicago Fire, Guy’s Ultimate Game Night, Chicago PD, & The Amazing Race.

This season of Chicago PD has been putting my emotions through the wringer from episode one. First watching Voight deal with the aftermath of losing his informer and how it was rubbing off on Jay, causing him to ignore his marriage. Now last episode we watched as Jay struggled with the emotional toil all these hard cases have been taking on him. He was in a building where he shouldn’t have been without a warrant and ended up killing a man who attacked him. It was a good kill, but it really shook Jay to his core. It reminded him that he needs “black and white.” He needs to know who the bad guys are—as long as he is a police officer, he will never be able to know for sure who is good and who is bad. He left to go on a year-long posting with an army unit that is hunting down the terrorists and drug runners in other countries, something that Jay can clearly define right from wrong. Watching him say goodbye to Upton was heartbreaking, but watching him say goodbye to Voight was also so sad. Jay telling Voight that it wasn’t because he didn’t want to become like Voight but that it was because he did… That right there had me in the feels! I am going to miss Jay tremendously, and I don’t think the show will ever be the same without him. I am, however, quite pleased they didn’t kill his character off, just in case there’s ever room for him to come back.

On tonight’s episode, “Donde Vives,” a shocking murder pulls rookie officer Dante Torres into his own neighborhood. As Voight and Atwater help him navigate the case and manage tricky personal dynamics with wary neighbors, Torres realizes his life may be forever changed.

To see how Torres adjusts to his new unit, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, The Amazing Race, The Masked Singer, and Stargirl.
