If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/3/16

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

madoff23smallTonight, ABC airs the first half of its two-part Madoff original movie event, inspired by ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross’s book “The Madoff Chronicle.” It is a dramatization of the rise and fall of investment advisor Bernie Madoff (Richard Dreyfuss), who pulled off the largest financial Ponzi scheme in US history. The miniseries takes a look at how the events affected Madoff’s family and associates, including wife Ruth (Blythe Danner), sons Mark (Tom Lipinski) and Andrew (Danny Defarrari), brother Peter (Peter Scolari), secretary Eleanor Squillari (Erin Cummings), and CFO Frank DiPascali (Michael Rispoli). The rest of the characters include Harry Markopolos (Frank Whaley), the securities industry executive who first discovered what Madoff was up to, Carl Shapiro (Charles Grodin), who lost billions of dollars, and Gregory Perkins (Lewis Black).

I remember hearing about Bernie Madoff on the news but never really followed all of the details. I’m looking forward to checking this out tonight and learning what really went on during this big scandal. It looks like they’ve assembled quite an amazing cast!

The first half of the film airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c, and the 2-hour conclusion airs tomorrow.

I’ll also be watching/recording Arrow, Supernatural, Young & Hungry, Baby Daddy, Man Seeking Woman, Suits, Face Off, Younger, and Teachers.
