If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/11/17

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

I really enjoyed the first season of NBC’s travel-reality series Better Late Than Never, which found actors William Shatner and Henry Winkler and sports stars Terry Bradshaw and George Foreman traveling across Asia with comedian Jeff Dye. The guys didn’t have their usual celebrity creature comforts as they immersed themselves into new cultures, trying strange new foods and activities, checking things off their bucket lists. It was a lot of fun watching these old strangers bicker with one another but ultimately become the best of friends. And having the younger comedian tagging along as their sidekick helps to balance out the show and bring another perspective to the group.

Tonight, NBC is giving viewers a preview of the second season, which has the group getting back together, this time to head out on a European adventure. The second season will find this ragtag group of celebrities heading to Munich, Berlin, Lithuania, Sweden, Barcelona, Madrid, and Morocco. Even though it has been two years since their original trip, the chemistry between these guys instantly returns when they reunite at the airport. I didn’t realize how much I had missed this series until I checked out tonight’s episode – this show is so much fun and has me constantly laughing out loud! After tonight’s special preview premiere, the season will continue after the new year.

On tonight’s episode, “Munich,” the first stop is Munich, where the guys immerse themselves in the culture, customs, and traditions of the city, including participating in Oktoberfest. They also go to the Bavarian Alps, where they recreate “The Hills Are Alive” moment from The Sound of Music.

See the guys reunite and head to Munich tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Superior Donuts, Lucifer, The Gifted, and Ill Behaviour.

If you enjoy this series, I’d also recommend checking out the Netflix original series Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father, which was released at the end of September, as it has a very similar vibe of a young comedian taking his elderly father on a trip across Southeast Asia.
