If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/9/15

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!

rookieblue79smallIt’s been a great season of Rookie Blue so far. I have to admit that I had my doubts, given the way they ended last season with Marlo’s pregnancy and how the writers have treated Andy & Sam in the past. But they both seem to be committed to making it work, and Marlo (so far) doesn’t seem to want to get in the middle of them. How it will continue to play out, I don’t know, but I have my fingers crossed. Meanwhile, last week’s story line with the ultra-conservative/strict/abusive father was crazy. It got even crazier when the little boy tried to poison his sister. I was glad they were able to convince the mom to get her and the kids out of their home situation.

On tonight’s episode, “Uprising,” as tensions are running high in an over-capacity women’s correctional facility, a riot breaks out while Andy, Juliet, Nick, and Gail are there to transfer two inmates. The officers are separated, and a lock-down situation leads to Andy and Juliet being trapped with a dangerous prisoner who is desperate to prove her innocence. Meanwhile, Sam shows up at Marlo’s ultrasound and stays by her side while they anxiously wait to hear if something’s wrong with the baby. Episode was directed by series star Gregory Smith.

See if the officers get out of the prison riot safely tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Boom!, Food Fighters, Complications, Beat Bobby Flay, & Lip Sync Battle.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/31/14

San Diego Comic-Con was a lot of fun. This year, I did around 18 press rooms and just a single panel, so it was a very different—and somewhat more relaxing—experience. However, now I have a TiVo that’s almost at capacity and a lot of videos to edit and photos to post! There’s a lot of things on TV tonight, and we’ve got a few suggestions as to what you should check out. [Side note from Jenny: We’ll be taking a couple of weeks off from the Remote posts, gearing up for the end of the summer season and beginning of the new fall season. There are a few big episodes in those two weeks, so we’ll pop up here and there, but don’t worry… We’ll be back on Sunday, August 17, to the regular Remote postings. And don’t worry, I’ll still be posting the weekly & daily schedules!]

dominion731smallLast week on Dominion, Michael wanted Alex to kill the 8-Ball that possessed Claire’s mother’s body. However, Alex couldn’t bring himself to do it. Instead, he showed Claire, who was initially in denial that her mother was still in the body. Alex was able to excise the angel, and Claire was reunited with her mother, but this was short-lived as her mother’s soul disappeared shortly afterwards. Claire was wrecked and immediately confronted her father about the situation, telling him that he will step down from his position immediately following the wedding. She then returned to the body and suffocated it while singing the lullaby her mother used to sing to her as a child. Meanwhile, William Whele forced his father to go through the initiation ceremony for Gabriel’s cult of followers.

Including tonight, there are just 3 episodes left to the season! Where does the show go from here? How will going through the trauma of gaining and losing her mother change Claire? Will General Riesen step down like his daughter demanded? And is David Whele really one of Gabriel’s followers now?

If you will be watching tonight’s Syfy lineup, be sure to check out my San Diego Comic-Con press room coverage for Defiance and Dominion for some fun interviews with the cast and creators of these shows.

On tonight’s episode, “Ouroboros,” Alex is called upon by Michael to help prevent any further casualties after innocent higher angels turn up dead in Vega; at the same time, Gabriel causes tension by revealing a long-hidden secret; William “re-educates” his father; and Noma reignites an old flame.

Find out what secret Gabriel reveals tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, The Quest, Rookie Blue, Welcome to Sweden, Working the Engels, Married, You’re the Worst, MythBusters, Rush, Satisfaction, and Defiance.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/19/14

That nice lull between fall and summer TV has finally come to a close. I hope you enjoyed the break, because the summer primetime gridlock resumes again starting tonight, with at least four returning/new shows added to the schedule and many more to follow next week. Because of that, we’ve got some suggestions to help you navigate tonight’s busy primetime highway.

dominion619smallTonight, Syfy kicks off its new Thursday lineup with the return of Defiance, followed by the series premiere of Dominion. Dominion is a small screen spin-off of the 2010 film Legion. In the movie, God ordered his angels to bring the Apocalypse to Earth, but the archangel Michael rebelled and helped the humans. The series takes place 25 years later in a town called Vega (formerly Las Vegas), where the war between the angels and the humans still rages on. However, the hope of the humans lies in the prophesy of unknown “chosen one,” who has yet to be revealed.

Tonight’s extended premiere will air with limited commercial interruption. I was able to see a rough cut of the episode, and I really enjoyed it. It’s an action-packed hour that jumps right into the ongoing war, but also sets up the interesting political dynamics of Vega. I look forward to seeing how the battles both outside and inside the walls of Vega play out over the course of the season. It looks like Syfy will have a great block of sci-fi on Thursday nights!

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” a soldier learns he is the “chosen one,” destined to lead humanity and end the devastating war with the angels once and for all.

Check out the 90-minute series premiere tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Rookie Blue, Undateable, Gang Related, Defiance, and Rectify.
