If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/28/19

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!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, TruTV launches the 10-episode first season of the new firehouse comedy Tacoma FD, starring and created by two of the “Super Troopers,” Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme. Terry McConky (Heffernan) was recently made chief of his firehouse, but he’s having trouble transitioning from being one of the guys to being the more responsible one in charge. His brother-in-law and best friend of 25 years, Captain Eddie Penisi (Lemme), doesn’t make this task any easier. He’s always encouraging his buddy to participate in the firehouse shenanigans. Meanwhile, Councilwoman Linda Price (Suzy Nakamura, The Goldbergs) tries to get the chief back on track before the firehouse gets shut down but is often shocked and appalled by the antics she witnesses whenever she arrives unannounced. The rest of the crew includes Andy Myawani (Eugene Cordero, Black Monday, The Good Place), Granny Smith (Marcus Henderson, Get Out, Homecoming), and the dim-witted Ike Crystal (Gabriel Hogan, Heartland, Condor). And shaking things up at the testosterone-filled firehouse is new probie Lucy (Hassie Harrison, Southbound).

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere – it had me laughing out loud quite a bit. This show definitely has a similar feel to Super Troopers and the other Broken Lizard comedies. There’s a lot of downtime at the station, so the guys need to find ways to amuse themselves, which usually results in playing pranks on one another or coming up with crazy, stupid competitions. When the bell actually does ring and the guys are called to help someone in need, it’s not typically a matter of life and death, so the fun and games also continue on the job. I’m looking forward to watching more of this show – it looks like a fun, comedic alternative to those more serious first responder dramas.

On tonight’s premiere, “On the Hot Seat,” Tacoma FD’s newest chief, Terry McConky, is under scrutiny by the city council to get serious about his station’s ratings; Terry’s crew puts his job in jeopardy by engaging in a ridiculous competition for a super “sawft” prize.

Join the newest TV firefighters tonight on TruTV at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, Superstore, A.P. Bio, Will & Grace, Abby’s, and The Other Two.
