If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/19/20

Young Sheldon returned for a new season a couple weeks ago, and it is already shaping up to be a great season. On last week’s episode, Missy started her period on the way to a baseball game with George, and it turned out to be a moment that brought them closer together. Watching George have a moment of panic trying to figure out what to do about the situation was hilarious. Speaking of growing closer, Mary and Georgie had a bonding moment when Georgie found out about her guilty pleasure of watching action movies. I really liked getting to see more of these characters. Even if I love Sheldon, sometimes it’s fun to spend time on the other family members.

On tonight’s episode, “Training Wheels and an Unleashed Chicken,” with college in sight, Sheldon is determined to ride his bike without training wheels. Also, Mary and George Sr. argue over parenting styles.

To watch Sheldon try to learn this life skill, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Station 19, Grey’s Anatomy, A Million Little Things, Law & Order: SVU, and B Positive.

It is good to be back! What a strange and messy world we’ve been living in since March, but TV is starting to return, and that means we will be popping in when we can to let you know what we are watching and what you should check out. Hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.

Tonight is the series premiere of Big Sky on ABC, and I am excited for many reasons. First, I have loved watching Ryan Phillippe ever since he starred in the movie Playing by Heart back in 1998. (Yes, I know I’m old.) He was such a sweetheart in that movie, and his eyes won me over. Secondly, a suspense-filled thriller is always welcome on my television viewing list, especially when it seems like it will be an edge-of-your-seat kind of ride.

The show follows Cody Hoyt, a private detective who gets drawn into a mysterious case of missing women after they start to investigate the disappearance of two women, only to discover that there are many more women who have disappeared and nothing is as it seems. Beside Ryan Phillippe, it also stars John Carol Lynch (Body of Proof, Close to Home, K-Ville), Katheryn Winnick (Vikings, Bones), Kylie Bunbury (Pitch, Brave New World), Jade Pettyjohn (Little Fires Everywhere), Brian Geraghty (Chicago PD, Briarpatch, The Fugitive), Natalie Alyn Lind (The Gifted), Dedee Pfeiffer (For Your Love), Jesse James Keitel, & Valerie Mahaffey.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” while on a road trip to visit her boyfriend in Montana, Danielle Sullivan and her sister Grace are kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote part of the highway, setting off a chain of events that leads private detectives Cody Hoyt and Cassie Dewell to team up with Cody’s estranged wife and ex-cop, Jenny Hoyt, to search for the sisters. But when the investigators discover these are not the only girls who have disappeared in the area, it’s clear that they’ve stumbled onto something much bigger than them all.

To see if this new series draws you in to the mystery as much as it has me, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching FBI, FBI: Most Wanted, NCIS, The Voice, NEXT, This Is Us, Chopped, and Transplant.

Tonight is the series premiere of a fun new show on FOX called Ultimate Tag. It is exactly what you’d think: a great big exciting game of tag – crossed with the show from 2007/2008, American Gladiators. Six contestants (three men, three women), all athletes, military, martial artists, etc, compete against a group of “taggers” with names like The Flow, La Flair, Spitfire, Iron Giantress, Flame, Caveman, Big Deal, and more. Most of the taggers are free runners or experts in parkour. The course is three-dimensional, so the contestants and taggers must run, jump, slide, climb…basically do whatever they need to do to beat the clock and each other.

Kyle didn’t really enjoy the screener, but I thought it was a lot of fun. The names are silly (I loved American Gladiators, and I feel like most of the names were better on there…), but the action is fun, and the hosts (the pro-football-playing Watt brothers, JJ, TJ, & Derek) were good as well. I’m looking forward to seeing more.

Don’t miss the premiere tonight on FOX at 9:02/8:02c.

I’ll also be watching Guy’s Grocery Games & S.W.A.T.

After almost a year (!!!), we’re FINALLY getting the final season premiere of Blindspot tonight. In case you don’t remember, on the 2-part season finale, the team was racing against the clock to stop Madeline Burke’s Helios attack. When they finally got a lead into two of her associates and tracked one down, they found him with Keaton. Turned out the guy was former CIA. Nash, Keaton’s boss, showed up. They argued and agreed to go to a neutral location and question him together, but on the drive there, rockets blew up the SUV and killed him. In order to figure out who the mole inside the CIA or FBI was, the FBI brought in Madeline from prison, but she fed them nothing but whining about being innocent and this being an attack on her from the FBI, just like they had a problem with her father.

They captured Dominic on security cams at the Belmore science lab, getting handed a package. That’s when we found out Nash was the mole in the CIA and he warned Dominic to get away from Belmore before the team could get there. They did find the woman who gave Dominic the package. They were shocked when they found out it was a computer virus, not a biological agent. Not long after that, they figured out his target: NYIOC, which controls the power grid to the entire East Coast. Unfortunately, they couldn’t get to Dominic in time to stop him from uploading the virus. Patterson and Zapata stayed in the lab to try to stop the virus, while Jane & Weller went after Dominic. During his escape, Jane and Weller cornered him in the hallway, and he basically sacrificed himself for the cause. And unfortunately, Kathy was still working with him (remember, she thought they were in love…), so she was able to stop Patterson from halting the virus…and the entire power grid went down.

Last week’s episode of The Flash was packed full of action and emotions that left us on the edge of our seats. Eva is free of the mirror, while Mirror Iris was shattered in Barry’s arms – which was bittersweet because even though she was a fraud, it still looked like Iris. The end of the episode had Iris still trapped in the mirror and her and Barry speaking to each other through the glass. It was heartbreaking. I can’t wait to see them reunited, but I am not sure how long they are going to have to keep fighting before she’s free.

On tonight’s episode, “Pay the Piper,” when Godspeed returns, Barry turns to Hartley Rathaway for help. However, things get tense quickly after Barry realizes one of the changes from Crisis is that The Flash and Pied Piper are now enemies. Meanwhile, Iris tries to escape the Mirrorverse.

To see if Iris can escape the Mirrorverse, tune in to The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and FBI: Most Wanted.
