If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/7/16

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!

Kyle’s Choice

damiensmallTonight, A&E kicks off a creepy new lineup. Bates Motel returns for its fourth season and is joined by new series Damien. This sequel to the 1976 film The Omen comes from The Walking Dead producer Glen Mazzara. It’s 25 years later, and Damien Thorn (Bradley James, Merlin) is all grown up, working as a war photographer in Syria. He is blissfully unaware of the fact that he is the Antichrist until, on his 30th birthday, his past comes back to haunt him and the truth is revealed. Damien’s close friend and colleague Amani (Omid Abtahi, Homeland) is also in for a shock when he learns Damien’s secret, which will test their friendship. Meanwhile, Ann Rutledge (Barbara Hershey, Once Upon a Time), a powerful woman who once protected Damien, has now been tasked with making sure that he fulfills his destiny. The rest of the cast includes Meganlyn Echikunwoke (Vixen), Scott Wilson (The Walking Dead), David Meunier (Aquarius), Tiffany Hines (Stitchers), Gerry Pearson, and Brody Bover.

While I’ve never seen any of the Omen films, I’m looking forward to checking out tonight’s premiere based on the premise and those involved both in front of and behind the camera. Plus, it sounds like a great companion series for Bates Motel!

On tonight’s premiere, “The Beast Rises,” acclaimed war photographer Damien Thorn realizes he is the Antichrist following a traumatic event while on assignment.

See what happens to alert Damien tonight on A&E at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Castle, Blindspot, Gotham, Lucifer, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, Major Crimes, Bates Motel, The Magicians, and Better Call Saul.
