If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/11/22

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’m pretty excited about tonight’s series premiere of Professionals. The series follows Vincent Corbo (Tom Welling, Smallville), a top-tier security operative who is paid to protect the interests of rich and powerful clients by any means necessary — legal or not. After a next-gen medical-data satellite explodes on launch, Corbo is hired by the rocket’s designer, billionaire futurist Peter Swann (Brendan Fraser, Trust, The Mummy), who suspects sabotage. Complicating Corbo’s new gig is his former paramour and now Swann’s fiancée, medical visionary Dr. Grace Davila (Elena Anaya, Wonder Woman), who is racing to help stave off a global catastrophe. As Corbo and his team of veteran security professionals investigate the rocket disaster, they expose a lethal conspiracy of Swann’s corporate rivals, corrupt government officials, and a shadowy crime syndicate – all working to destroy Swann and take control of his tech empire. Worse, Corbo must also contend with Swann’s spoiled, troublemaking teen daughter (Jazzara Jaslyn, Lioness) and a rogue Europol agent (Ken Duken, Inglourious Basterds, Counterpart) who is hellbent on busting him for past sins.

The series first aired overseas, and The CW has had a mix of successes and failures when bringing in shows this way. I have high hopes for this one, and I’m crossing my fingers it’s good, because the premise sounds like a lot of fun. It feels like it would make a good movie, but hopefully that doesn’t mean it’ll make a bad TV show.

On tonight’s episode, “Snipe Hunt,” Multi-billionaire and philanthropist Peter Swann wants to set new standards in modern medicine. The satellite-supported “Panacea” project is intended to identify at an early stage in which regions of the world viral diseases break out and to guarantee the rapid supply of vaccines to people. At the Dublin headquarters of the Swann corporate empire, Peter and his fiancée, the physician Dr. Grace Davila, follow the transmission of the rocket launch but the highly sophisticated satellite cannot make it into orbit. Peter thinks it was sabotaged, but he has no proof. Grace convinces him to bring in security expert Vincent Corbo to investigate. The Private Military Contractor (PMC) and Grace had a relationship seven years ago, after Vincent saved the doctor’s life during an operation in the Syrian-Iraqi border area. Vincent, Peter and Grace travel to French Guyana. They quickly find the first clues of a conspiracy, not only against the “Panacea” project, but against Peter’s entire company.

Don’t miss the hopefully exciting premiere tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

(A special shout-out to The CW’s premiere of The Winchesters too!)

I’ll also be watching FBI, Bobby’s Triple Threat, FBI: International, FBI: Most Wanted, Outchef’d, & The Rookie: Feds.
