If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/3/16

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

theflash53smallOn last week’s episode of The Flash, Barry had to readjust to life without his powers and was quickly reminded of how slow things move for regular human beings. He soon found his situation even more difficult when a powerful Meta Human kidnapped Doctor Wells – thinking he was his Earth-1 persona – and threatened to kill him unless Wells reversed the effects of the particle-accelerator explosion. Cisco managed to reinforce Barry’s suit to make it strong enough to withstand a Meta Human attack, and the group managed to rescue Harrison. Wells now recognized the urgency for Barry to regain his powers and decided that recreating the particle-accelerator explosion would be the solution. Meanwhile, on Earth-2, Killer Frost convinced Caitlin to help her escape from her cell and then thanked her by trying to kill her. Zoom stopped this just in time, killing Killer Frost and threatening to do the same to Caitlin if she assisted the man in the iron mask in escaping from his own cell. Afterwards, Zoom decided it was time to conquer Earth-1 and sped off with Caitlin in his arms.

What does Zoom have planned for Barry and the gang? Will Harrison be able to get Barry his powers back, will this be enough to stop Zoom, and what kind of side effects will result from another explosion? And will we ever find out who is behind that iron mask?!

On tonight’s episode, “Rupture,” Zoom arrives back on Earth-1 intent on taking over Central City. Barry and Wells plan to stop Zoom, but it’s extremely dangerous. Unsure if he should take the risk, Barry reaches out to both fathers for advice. Meanwhile, Cisco is shocked when he senses the Earth-2 villain Rupture, who is his brother Dante’s doppelgänger; and Iris decides to open up to Barry about her feelings for him.

See how the plan goes to stop Zoom tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., New Girl, Grandfathered, The Grinder, and Containment.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/23/14

We’re a few days into the new season, and I couldn’t be happier. How good have the new shows been? I’m so glad to see some of my returning favorites, too. There’s a lot more of that tonight. Megan is without internet until the company fixes what they screwed up, so Kyle & I are here to give you our recommendations.

Jenny’s Choice #1

ncisnola923smallMy first pick tonight is the series premiere of NCIS: NOLA. (New Orleans, for those who don’t speak the lingo…) Yes, this is a spinoff of NCIS, but considering how much I love both the original and the Los Angeles version, it’s no wonder I love this one as much as I do. Last season, there was a double episode of the original series, introducing the NOLA team, set in New Orleans. Special Agent Dwayne Pride (Golden Globe Award winner Scott Bakula, Men of a Certain Age, Star Trek: Enterprise, Quantum Leap), aka “King,” a native of New Orleans who is a lot like Gibbs, only a little more relaxed in both temperament and in following the rules but no less a good man, is the leader of the team and an old friend of Gibbs. On Pride’s NCIS team is Special Agent Christopher LaSalle (Lucas Black, American Gothic), who is the…Tony of the group, for lack of a better phrase. He plays hard but works harder, but don’t think that makes him any less of a great agent. Also on the team is Special Agent Meredith “Merri” Brody (Zoe McLellan, Dirty Sexy Money, JAG), a charismatic and tough interrogator who transferred from the Great Lakes office in search of a fresh start. Supporting them is coroner Dr. Loretta Wade (CCH Pounder, Warehouse 13, Sons of Anarchy, The Shield), who is as eccentric as she is smart—she is a great match for Ducky in the fun and interesting character department.

Besides the two episodes last season, I’ve seen tonight’s premiere already, and it’s an interesting but heartbreaking case, especially for King. I loved the show, and I can’t wait to see the premiere again and then all the episodes to come.

On tonight’s episode, “Musician Heal Thyself,” a case turns personal for Pride when the body of a Petty Officer is identified as a former gang member he once mentored. Meanwhile, Brody continues her search for the perfect place to call home in New Orleans. David McCallum (Ducky on NCIS), James McDaniel, and Steven Weber (Chasing Life, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Wings) guest star.

To see if you fall in love with another NCIS team, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/29/14

I get my computer back today! Thank goodness! I didn’t realize how slow this one is until I had to use it while my new one was off getting the mouse button replaced. Eek. I’ll be so glad to have it back. That, combined with all the great TV tonight, makes my Tuesday VERY good. Check out our recommendations to help make your Tuesday a little brighter.

Jenny’s Choice

personofinterest429smallPerson of Interest is really ramping up the drama and excitement, what with our almost-superheros battling not only Vigilance, but also Control and Decima. We thought Control was going to be their biggest threat—because while Vigilance is deadly, they’re more than a pain in the ass to Reese, Shaw, & co. than anything—but Decima has now planted a big ol’ target on Reese and, more immediate right now, Finch. During the last episode, Reese and Finch had to protect a congressman, but it turned out that the congressman WAS the threat—to them and the Machine, no less. It was tense for a bit, as Reese and Shaw argued with Finch about whether or not to kill him. I could see both arguments. For a minute, we thought Reeshaw had killed him against Finch’s wishes and pleas, but then we saw them running from the cops (and Shaw get hit in the leg), and right at the end, we saw the congressman alive and well…and pretty much in cahoots with Decima, who got the okay to tap into the country’s surveillance systems. Their first test to show Control how the new Machine can work? Track down Harold Finch.

Eek! Finch and Reese can’t die. Without both of them, the show is no more. But they’ve already killed off Carter, who I thought was integral. I don’t want to lose Shaw or Fusco…or frankly, even Root, who has really grown on me since she’s come over from the dark side…sort of. With only tonight’s episode plus two more left in the season, I’m truly getting worried for all five of them. Will the be able to outsmart Decima? Will all five work closely together to take them down? I’m biting my nails at the thought of what we might see tonight and in the next two weeks!

On tonight’s episode, “Beta,” as Decima uses Samaritan’s feeds to hunt Reese and Shaw, Greer exploits Finch’s greatest weakness in an attempt to lure him out of hiding: his love for his former fiancée, Grace Hendricks.

Find out if Decima gets their dirty, evil little hands on any of the good guys tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, 19 Kids & Counting, Chow Masters, NCIS: LA, The Goldbergs, Growing Up Fisher, Trophy Wife, Chicago Fire, Chopped, The Little Couple, & Playing House.

Jason does these podcasts once a week with different hosts joining him, and this was my second time. It was just as much fun as the first time! Kyle & Megan have both done it several times. You can check out the TV times Three site here, with all the previous podcasts. Be sure to check them out! TV times Three.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/7/14

I’m so glad I’m not in Minnesota. Their highs right now are like -15° to -20°F! Isane, I tell ya. Another thing I’m glad about is that my new laptop SHOULD be here tomorrow. Yay! 😀 And finally, I’m also thrilled that TV is back because there’s a ton of stuff on tonight—including one I’ve been looking forward to most since last summer when I saw the screener: Intelligence. That’s my first pick, so check out our recommendations! 🙂

Jenny’s Choice #1

intelligence17smallAs I said, Intelligence was the show I’ve been looking forward to most for months. The show is about a high-tech intelligence operative (Josh Holloway, Lost) who is enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. With it, he’s connected to to everything: Internet, WiFi, telephone & satellite data… It’s like…Chuck & Jake 2.0, but not. Leading his team is Marg Helgenberger (CSI), and his partner/“bodyguard” is Meghan Ory (Ruby/Red Riding Hood, Once Upon a Time). He can hack into any data center and access key intel in the fight to protect the United States from its enemies.

I wasn’t a fan of Lost, so Josh Holloway wasn’t someone I’ve seen a lot of, but he’s super sexy and so much fun to watch in this pilot. And it’s great having Marg Helgenberger back on TV after she left CSI. Other members of the cast include James Martinez, John Billingsley, PJ Byrne, & Michael Rady.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Gabriel and Riley must rescue the kidnapped member of CyberCom who invented the chip implanted in Gabriel’s brain before the top-secret technology falls into the wrong hands. Meanwhile, Gabriel takes advantage of his chip to search for his wife who disappeared years ago.

See if this new science fiction drama is for you tonight on CBS at 9/8c.
