If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/16/16

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

The last few episodes have focused on Molly and Mike and their quest to adopt a baby. Last week, they learned that Frannie (Molly’s former student who was now homeless and pregnant) planned to dance on a speaker for a friend’s band after she had the baby, which Molly was very unhappy about. So Molly did some snooping in Frannie’s bag and found a letter from her sister, Maura. She got the bright idea to invite Maura to see Frannie. At first Frannie was mad and refused to speak to Maura because she’d left Frannie with their horrible parents, but the pair eventually made up, and Maura said she wanted Frannie AND the baby to move in with her. That was great for them but bad for Molly and Mike, who wouldn’t get to adopt her baby. Then in the next episode, they decided to try with an adoption agency. It went well…until they had to schedule a home visit. Mike invited Carl and Samuel over in order to have the “black friend” and “foreign friend” demographic covered, and Molly tried her best to make everyone and everything picture perfect. Of course, things went sideways, especially when Mike tried to lean on the crib, only to decapitate the baby doll when the side dropped. Needless to say, they didn’t get to adopt a baby through that agency.

We’ve been with Mike and Molly and their families from the very first meeting, to dating, marriage, and now them trying to start a family. So how will the series end? I’ve seen both episodes, and it really is a fun, sweet, and fitting ending. I’ll be sad to see the show go after tonight.

On tonight’s first episode, “Curse of the Bambino,” Carl convinces Mike to go with him to see his psychic and Peggy drags Molly to her church to pray for something they’ve all been waiting for. Melissa McCarthy directed the episode. Then on the series finale, “I See Love,” Mike and Molly gather with family and friends for a momentous occasion and reminisce about everything that led to this point.

See if Mike and Molly can get everything they want tonight on CBS starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Person of Interest & Blindspot.
