If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/25/16

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

ncisla925smallToday is my favorite day of the entire TV season. Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration…but only slight! Tonight is the 2-hour season premiere of NCIS: LA, and it promises to be a good one! The LA branch of NCIS has been looking for a mole in the organization for a while now, and tonight it all comes to a head when higher-ups decide it’s time for someone else to be in charge and find the mole. How that will affect the team – and for how long – I don’t know. But something else that is affecting them is Daniela Ruah’s pregnancy. Kensi will be in every episode, but only because Daniela and (at least…) Eric (Deeks) filmed scenes in advance from each episode. Something huge happens with Kensi in this premiere, which keeps her out of the office/field for a while. I’m sure that means we’ll be seeing more of Nell in the field, partnered with Deeks, which should be a lot of fun. But it also means that this season should be an interesting one.

And don’t forget that because of football, Sunday shows on CBS tend to have erratic start times. CBS has tried to help by pushing everything back thirty minutes, which means shows will automatically start at 8:30/7:30c instead of 8/7c. But if you’re planning on recording NCIS: LA, Madam Secretary, or Elementary, I would make sure to record an hour or even two hours over, just to be sure you get it all. Trust me, I had to do that more than I’d like to remember the last few seasons!

On tonight’s two-hour premiere, “High-Value Target,” and “Belly of the Beast,” after NCIS fails to locate a mole in the department, Under Secretary of Defense Corbin Duggan (Jackson Hurst) insists on new leadership and takes over the Los Angeles unit from Hetty and Granger. Also, the team travels to Syria to apprehend a High Value Target, where one team member is severely injured when the mission goes awry.

See what happens when the office gets taken over and the team goes to Syria tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, The Great Food Truck Race, Cooks vs Cons, & Quantico.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/7/14

We’re getting closer & closer to Christmas, and this week definitely shows it because there are a ton of finales on. But there are still quite a few new episodes, and Kyle & I are here to give you our recommendation on what to watch tonight.

Jenny’s Choice

thelibrarians127smallI couldn’t be more thrilled because tonight is the 2-hour series premiere of TNT’s The Librarian. Way back in 2004, Noah Wyle played Flynn Carsen, a perpetual student who earned 22 degrees before he was banned from taking more classes. He was quickly hired as a librarian, although rather than just checking out books, he began hunting down magical, mysterious “artifacts” and relics. TNT did three TV movies, the last airing in 2008, and now, it’s back, in TV show form instead of movie. Wyle is back as well, in his role of Flynn Carsen, although he’ll only be a recurring character, in addition to his new role of Executive Producer. Several others from the TV movies are returning as well: Bob Newhart & Jane Curtin.

The show centers on an ancient organization, hidden beneath the Metropolitan Public Library, dedicated to protecting an unknowing world from the secret, magical reality hidden all around. This group solves impossible mysteries, fights supernatural threats, and recovers powerful artifacts, including the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Destiny, and Excalibur. The new cast includes Christian Kane (loved him on Leverage!), Rebecca Romijn (loved her on King & Maxwell!), Lindy Booth, & John Kim as the new “Librarians,” as well as John Larroquette in the role of their caretaker. Matt Frewer will be recurring.

thelibrarianssmallIf you were a fan of the TV movie trilogy or of Syfy’s Warehouse 13, I urge you to give this a shot. It looks like it’s gonna be a lot of fun, and it has a great cast.

On tonight’s first episode, “And the Crown of King Arthur,” someone is killing off potential Librarians and it’s up to Flynn Carsen and his new Guardian, Colonel Eve Baird, to save the three that are left. Then on “And the Sword in the Stone,” the Serpent Brotherhood is trying to return magic to our world. Flynn, Colonel Baird, and the potential Librarians must stop them before it’s too late.

Don’t miss the 2-hour premiere of the latest fun, hit drama tonight on TNT at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Holiday Baking Championship, The Mentalist, Cutthroat Kitchen, & CSI.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/28/14

I’m so excited for a new week! So far, I’ve been LOVING the new season, and there are more shows that I can’t wait to see premiering this week, starting tonight, so check out what we’re recommending.

Jenny’s Choice #1

brooklyn99-928smallMy first pick is the season premiere of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Last season ended on such a crazy, outrageous note… Jake was tasked to go undercover for the FBI, trying to catch a bunch of mob guys. But the episodes before that, he realized he had feelings for Santiago. Just before he left, he admitted them to her, but she was dating Teddy, so nothing happened. I’m excited and anxious for this season because their first one was such a huge hit and was so fantastic, but it’s now on Sunday night. Hopefully the second season will live up to the precedence set by season one and being on a new night surrounded by animated comedies won’t hurt it. I’ve seen the premiere, and I will say that it’s off to a great start. The same humor is there, the characters and jokes are just as funny, and I can see it being another fantastic comedy for this year.

On tonight’s episode, “Undercover,” Jake’s undercover FBI operation ends in a successful sting, until he learns one mobster has gotten away. As Jake enlists Charles’s help to track him down, Holt tests the squad’s patience with practice drills. Jenny Slate guest stars.

See how the squad welcomes Jake back to work tonight on FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/19/13

It’s a slow night in television land, but there’s still a few things to keep your night interesting. Let’s see what we think you should be watching.

Megan’s Choice

billboardmusicsmallSeeing as there isn’t a whole lot on tonight that I watch usually, I’ll be watching The 2013 Billboard Music Awards. Tracy Morgan is hosting, and I usually find him quite amusing, but I’m also excited to see Prince receive the Billboard Icon Award. I enjoy watching a few good musical performances, and I’m hoping to see some of my favorites win.

On tonight’s presentation, the festivities take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and the artists are recognized for the fan support they’ve garnered.

To see if your favorite artist wins tonight, tune in to ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Iron Chef America.
