If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/1/17

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!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, FOX is airing the premiere of new comedy The Mick at a special night and time before the series moves to its regular timeslot this Tuesday. Crass, foul-mouthed hustler Mickey (Kaitlin Olson, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) is down on her luck and looking for her next score. So she heads to Greenwich, CT, to surprise her sister and her billionaire husband, hoping to get them to buy into her latest investment scheme. However, the annual Labor Day bash is suddenly raided by the Feds, who are looking to arrest the couple for fraud. After her sister takes off, Mickey is left in charge of her spoiled niece and nephews. Eighteen-year-old activist Sabrina (Sofia Black D’Elia, The Messengers) thinks she knows everything and quickly proves to be a worthy adversary to Mickey, always hatching some sort of plan; thirteen-year-old Chip (Thomas Barbusca, The New Normal) has a sense of entitlement and is constantly threatening to sue when things don’t go his way; and seven-year-old Ben (Jack Stanton) just misses his parents. At first Mickey is thrilled to live the lavish life in a mansion but then realizes she needs to be a parent to these children. The cast also includes Carla Jimenez (Last Man Standing) as Alba the maid and Susan Park (Vice Principals) as Liz, the nosy next-door neighbor who’s constantly judging Micky with her passive-aggressive comments.

Tonight’s premiere basically just sets up the premise and the relationships between the characters, but I really enjoyed it, and it made me want to see more. I really enjoyed the face-offs between Sabrina and Mickey – it looks like that’s going to be a really fun part of the show. Both of these characters constantly think they have the upper hand on the other, only to realize they’ve been duped. This looks like it’s going to be a fun series, and I look forward to checking out more later this week!

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” an irresponsible, hard-partying opportunist signs on to raise her sister’s three spoiled children in an affluent Connecticut neighborhood when their parents bolt the country to escape federal charges.

Move in to the new neighborhood tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording To Tell the Truth, Ransom, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Sherlock, Worst Cooks in America, Beyond, and The Librarians.
