If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/3/16

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 #1

conviction103smallTonight is another new drama that I’m excited to see: ABC’s Conviction. Hayley Atwell (Marvel’s Agent Carter) plays lawyer and former First Daughter Hayes Morrison, is caught using drugs and is offered a job from her sexy nemesis, NY District Attorney Conner Wallace (played by CSI: New York alum, Eddie Cahill). If she works with his team at the new Conviction Integrity Unit, which reexamines cases where there is a credible suspicion of wrongful conviction, she’ll avoid jail time and will avoid hurting her mother’s Senate campaign. She’s a party girl with a privileged upbringing who is offered a chance to turn her life around.

I was really excited about this show when I saw the trailer. I haven’t seen the pilot, so I have no idea if it’ll be any good or not, but I love the premise, and I love the cast. I didn’t watch Agent Carter, but Hayley Atwell is adorable and I’ve heard she was great in that. Eddie Cahill was one of my favs on CSI: New York, and the others are good too: Daniel Franzese (Looking & Recovery Road), Emily Kinney (The Walking Dead), Manny Montana (whom I recognize from Graceland), not to mention Merrin Dungey (Alias, Once Upon a Time) and Shawn Ashmore (The Following).

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” after joining the Conviction Integrity Unit, Hayes pushes the team to consider the case of Odell Dwyer, a handsome former high school football player who has been in prison for eight years for murdering his girlfriend.

Follow the leads tonight on ABC at 10/9c.
