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.

I’m so happy because one of my favorite new shows (possibly THE favorite) from last season, Bob Hearts Abishola, returns tonight with its season premiere. By the time the finale rolled around, Bob and Abishola were in a good place in their relationship – starting with the fact that they were actually IN a relationship. It took Abishola a little bit to come around to it, but once she did, they began to settle in to being a couple…crazy families and all.

Dottie, Bob’s mother, met a fellow stroke survivor in rehab (played by the ever charming John Ratzenberger), and while I don’t think he’ll be back right away, who knows. He may show up again in the future. The other big story was Christina, Bob’s sister, and Kofo, one of the workers from Nigeria at Bob’s sock company. They had started up a flirtation while working on naming colors of socks, and when Kofo tried to back away, having been convinced that flirting and a relationship with his boss was a bad idea, Christina went kind of “boil a bunny” scary on him. Bob and Douglas (their brother), sent her away to a “spa retreat” type place that was actually a mental health and wellness program on a ranch that she’d been to before. Apparently she’s kind of…well…let’s just say she has some issues. And they feared she wasn’t any better when she told them she’d met Randy, a wrangler.

So how will Bob & Abishola’s relationship be when the show returns tonight? How will Abishola, as a nurse, be handling the pandemic, or is the show going to keep that part of real life out of it? And will Christina be back and over both Kofo and Randy? I can’t wait to find out all that and more tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “On a Dead Guy’s Bench,” Bob enlists Tunde’s help to buy an engagement ring, but his plans to propose to Abishola are upended by her belief that a traditional marriage is more trouble than it’s worth.

Don’t miss the fun premiere tonight on CBS at 8:31/7:31c.

I’ll also be watching Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Holiday Baking Championship, Christmas Cookie Challenge, & Weakest Link.

Jenny’s Choice #1

Wednesday is probably my favorite night of TV as a whole, especially tonight, though, because my Chicago shows are back! We get the season premieres of Chicago Med, then Chicago Fire, and finally Chicago PD. Before I talk about the new season, let’s jump into a short recap about each show…cause you know those season finales were a LONG time ago! LOL

Last time on Med, Ethan was riding along with paramedics, really just to put some distance between him and April, who told him she’d finished moving her things out and gave him back his key. But when he rushed into a convenience store where a guy was holding hostages and was then held at gunpoint himself, April learned of the news and rushed to the scene. They hugged when he was released, and it looks like maybe something could happen between them again. Back at the hospital, Will had reason to doubt Hannah’s honesty about going to a meeting when her ex, a drug addict, shows up at the hospital, needing treatment, and Hannah tells Will he called her for help. Yet Will found Hannah’s cell phone in her apartment after she’d already left for her NA meeting. She explained that the ex had called a mutual friend at the meeting, who told her. He said he believed her, but was she telling the truth or was he just being naïve? Finally, two detectives from New Orleans showed up, and it came out that Crockett was a suspect in a murder that happened there three years before. Wanting more information about Crockett, Natalie cornered an old friend of his who was visiting, and he informed her that back then, Crockett was going through a lot because he had a daughter who died from leukemia after her first birthday. After some deducing and questions, Natalie figured out that Crockett had donated bone marrow, and the actual killer was the recipient, who apparently acquired Crockett’s DNA. Who knew?

On Fire, Capp was injured while on a call (but will be okay), and Severide took it hard because it shouldn’t have happened. He did some investigating into the scrapyard where the explosion occurred and found that they had a history of shady behavior. He was able to convince OSHA that fines like they had been giving just weren’t cutting it. He found out later that the place got shut down. Meanwhile, Foster reapplied for medical school and was accepted, so Annie Ilonzeh won’t be back this season. And poor Brett learned that her (now dead) birth mother’s husband was taking his daughter (Brett’s half sister) and moving back to Rockford because Chicago was too expensive on one salary. And Kidd’s first and most promising Girls On Fire participant suddenly went MIA, and Kidd is now worried.

Finally, on PD, Atwater was really the big story. He went undercover to do a gun deal with a bunch of…well, KKK-type guys and learned once he was in there that he had to work with Doyle, one of the (racist) uniformed officers (now a detective) who’d stopped him and treated him so poorly before. The guy was also undercover. It wasn’t going to be fun for Kevin. But the guy apologized, and they ended up working well together. He convinced Kevin to have a drink with him afterward. On the drive, he kept trying to apologize, but Kevin didn’t want to talk about it. Then they saw two guys on a street corner talking, one of whom was holding a duffel bag. Doyle stopped because he said he saw a drug deal. Kevin asked why, because he’s Black? Doyle asked what was in the bag, and the kid wouldn’t answer, instead just ran into the building. Doyle followed him in, and before Kevin could follow, he heard gunshots. He found an injured Doyle before getting into a shootout himself, and Doyle later died. Intelligence found that it was being used as a stash house, although the duffel bag only contained a pair of sneakers. Trudy advised Atwater to visit Doyle’s family’s house to give his condolences, and everyone there was hailing Doyle as a hero. But when Intelligence finally arrested the shooters, they claimed Doyle shot first, and Kevin told Voight they were right, that there was no probable cause for the stop, and he wanted to say something. Voight told him he and Intelligence would back him if that was what he wanted to do. In the end, he did that, and when he arrived home, Doyle’s partner was there, just waiting and watching. Then a bunch of patrol cars went by silently, their lights on, as if to tell him they were watching him. Dun dun dun…

Between COVID and the racial unrest happening across the country, #OneChicago has its hands full. I can’t wait to see how all three shows handle it all!

On tonight’s Chicago Med, “When Did We Begin to Change,” the entire staff at Chicago Med adjusts to the new normal of the pandemic. Dr. Choi, Dr. Lanik, and April fight on the front lines. Dr. Halstead and Hannah face a troubling reality. Dr. Charles tries to clear the air with his daughter following recent developments.

Then on Chicago Fire, “Rattle Second City,” Firehouse 51 welcomes a new member to the team, whose presence could provide some complications. Brett’s leadership shines during a scary call. Boden sees great potential in Kidd and proposes an idea that could have lasting repercussions.

And finally, on Chicago PD, “Fighting Ghosts,” the team responds to the shooting of a 5-year-old girl and they must work the case while facing new obstacles that come from the heightened attention on police reform. Atwater is targeted by a group of officers who want to hurt him for standing against the blue wall. Voight questions whether he’s cut out for a new form of policing as he manages oversight from the CPD’s deputy superintendent.

Don’t miss the exciting premieres tonight on NBC starting at 8/7c.

My picks tonight are both on CBS, so I’m just lumping them in together. Both NCIS: LA & NCIS: New Orleans premiere tonight, and I’m so excited. I hate how COVID has wreaked havoc with my TV!

When we last left off in Los Angeles, Nell was pretty burned out and ready to turn in her papers, but Hetty convinced her to take her vacation and think about things. Also, Sam and Callen were dealing with a case in which two SEALs claimed their chief (Senior Chief Argento) murdered an unarmed prisoner. Turned out Argento was a bad dude, but even though they were finally able to arrest him, he told them he would get off scot-free. (His wife has connections with a senator, and Argento thinks he’s untouchable.)

Then in New Orleans, Khoury was deep into taking down Deputy Director Van Cleef, who liked ruining women’s careers, and with Pride’s help, they talked him into resigning. The team was also able to clear Khoury’s name from the last time Van Cleef had her punished. He showed up at Khoury’s house later, trying to intimidate her, but it didn’t work.

Now that the shows are back, post-COVID, it’ll be interesting to see how they handle it. I know that on LA, they’re going to be in a post-Pandemic time, but on New Orleans, it’s very much entrenched in the coronavirus. I’m going to enjoy the difference, I think, but I guess we’ll see.

On tonight’s NCIS: LA, “The Bear,” when a Russian bomber goes missing while flying over U.S. soil, Callen and Sam must track it down in the desert and secure its weapons and intel before the Russians on board destroy the plane. Also, Hetty gives Nell a cryptic assignment.

Then on NCIS: New Orleans, “Something in the Air, Pt 1,” as New Orleans grapples with the effects of COVID-19, Pride sends Tammy and Carter to investigate a suspicious death aboard a humanitarian ship offshore, where they learn that some crew members are infected with the deadly disease. Also, Wade is overwhelmed by the high volume in the morgue due to COVID-19.

Don’t miss the exciting premieres tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c & 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching Holiday Wars, Supermarket Sweep, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Card Sharks, & the Kids Baking Championship special.

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.
