If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/31/16

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!

Jenny’s Choice

rushhour331smallNot all movies translate well into TV shows, but they keep putting them out. One such new show is tonight’s premiere of Rush Hour, starring Justin Hires (TripTank, Key and Peele) as maverick Detective Carter of the LAPD and Jon Foo as by-the-book Detective Lee from Hong Kong. In the movie, Det. Lee comes to the US to search for a missing young girl. In the show, he comes over to avenge his sister’s alleged death and learn more about her connection to a Chinese organized crime ring. Just like in the movie, Carter is a wisecracking cop who plays by his own rules and Lee is a reserved, honorable master martial artist with lightning-fast moves. Joining them is Wendie Malick (Hot in Cleveland, Just Shoot Me), who plays Carter’s boss, Captain Cole; Aimee Garcia (Dexter, Vegas, Trauma), who plays Sergeant “Didi” Diaz, Carter’s friend & former partner; and Page Kennedy (Backstrom, Weeds), a low-level offender who runs with a tough crowd but is an informant for Carter…and his cousin.

I’ve seen tonight’s premiere, and I really enjoyed it. It’s not perfect, but I like the characters and their chemistry, and I like the story line that we learn in the first episode. The action is fun too, just like the movie. If you enjoy this type of show, you should definitely give it a shot!

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” cultures clash and tempers flare when Detective Lee, a stoic, by-the-book Hong Kong police detective, is paired with maverick LAPD Detective Carter in Los Angeles to investigate the theft of Chinese artifacts.

Meet Detectives Lee and Carter tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Man vs Child: Chef Showdown, Cooks vs Cons, 2 Broke Girls, & Beat Bobby Flay.
