If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/23/17

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’m still really enjoying The Brave. I love all the characters and the story lines. Last week was a tense one, when the team went over to Afghanistan to interrogate a former US soldier turned member of the Taliban to find out which military base the group was targeting next. Patricia actually went out into the field with the team this time because of her skills as an interrogator. Unfortunately, while they were there at the prison, a guard colluded with one of the prisoners, which allowed the prisoners to kill the guards and take over the prison in order to escape. After some trial and error at finding a way out of the prison, they made their own with explosives, taking the American prisoner with them. Thankfully, even though they were chased, shot at, and nearly blown up by some of the bad guys, our guys escaped relatively unharmed – and Patricia was able to get the location of the target from the prisoner.

What I really enjoyed was the episode’s opening and ending, with Patricia gathering dirt from Afghanistan – a physical reminder of her son, who died while serving overseas. I also really enjoyed seeing Jaz set up her sniper position with the motion sensor, and when it went off, she just calmly switched guns and shot without much more than a glance, knowing whoever was coming up without warning was a bad guy. And finally, with Patricia away from the office, Noah was left in charge. And although Hannah teased him about showing up in a suit and tie, he really did a great job filling in for Patricia, making the tough call when needed. It was great to see him stepping up and taking charge. I’m going to be very, very sad if this show doesn’t get picked up for a full season!

On tonight’s episode, “Enhanced Protection,” when Ambassador Charles Webb (guest star Ben Cain) is in danger while stationed in Nigeria, Dalton’s team heads to the region to find a situation different than they expected. Jaz makes a connection with a little girl she meets during the mission, and Patricia receives some personal news. D.K. Uzoukwo, Amanda Warren, and Jimmy Jean-Louis also guest star.

See what situation they find themselves in tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Dancing with the Stars, 9JKL, The Gifted, Halloween Baking Championship, & Scorpion.
