If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/7/22

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

I’ve been looking forward to the series premiere of Fire Country since I first heard about it. This is inspired by series star Max Thieriot’s experiences growing up in Northern California fire country. Max plays Clay on SEAL Team, and we’ve been assured that Clay isn’t going anywhere, so apparently Max is able to do double duty, or rather triple, since he’s the creator and an executive producer of this new series as well as starring.

He plays Bode Donovan, a young convict seeking redemption and a shortened prison sentence by joining an unconventional prison release firefighting program in Northern California, where he and other inmates are partnered with elite firefighters to extinguish massive, unpredictable wildfires across the region. It’s a high-risk, high-reward assignment, and the heat is turned up when Bode is assigned to the program in his rural hometown, where he was once a golden all-American son until his troubles began. Five years ago, Bode burned down everything in his life, leaving town with a big secret. Now he’s back, with the rap sheet of a criminal and the audacity to believe in a chance for redemption with Cal Fire.

I’m super excited about the premise, and I’m also excited about the cast. Billy Burke (Revolution, Zoo, and The Twilight Saga movies), Diane Farr (Numb3rs, Rescue Me), & Kevin Alejandro (Lucifer, Shark, The Returned, Sleeper Cell, Southland, True Blood), along with Jordan Calloway, Jules Latimer, & Stephanie Arcila.

Don’t miss tonight’s premiere on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Great British Baking Show, S.W.A.T., & Blue Bloods.
