If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/18/16

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

Tonight, the first season of USA Network’s crime drama Eyewitness comes to a close. Last week, things got really tense – Lukas survived being shot but was in a coma. Ryan tried to poison Lukas’s IV bag in order to finally silence him, but Lukas was moved to another room before the bag was attached. Ryan was also surprised to learn that Philip, Helen’s foster son, was another witness to his murders. Meanwhile, Philip recognized Ryan at a gas station and alerted Helen (though neither was aware that he is the FBI agent she has been working with). Things went into high alert at the hospital, and Helen called Ryan to help protect the boys. However, shortly afterwards she finally had her Keyser Söze moment – in Ryan’s glove compartment she found the cologne worn by the killer, and in the backseat she saw the hat and glasses Philip said the killer was wearing. Her heart sank as she realized that she had just told the killer exactly where the boys were hiding.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this first season of Eyewitness. The series has a very unique look and feel. Each of the characters has his or her own interesting storyline, complete with character flaws and personal demons to overcome. And the central relationship between Philip and Lukas is one that is not regularly seen on TV. At the same time, we’ve also been getting this really tense cat-and-mouse game with Ryan always being two steps ahead of Helen and ready to kill her if she learns too much. I found myself yelling at the screen, hoping for Helen to realize what was really going on with Ryan. She had just been handing him all the evidence and details on the case. I was thrilled to finally see her wake up at the end of last week’s episode. But is it too late? Will she be able to stop him before he gets to the boys? Also, assuming his son survives, how will Bo react to Lukas’s relationship with Philip? And how will Tony take the news that his idol is the killer they had been looking for?

On tonight’s finale, “Mother’s Day,” Helen learns the identity of the killer and races to find Philip and Lukas, who are missing.

Catch the finale tonight on USA Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary and The Librarians.
